When Lieutenant General Roméo Dallaire received the call to serve as force commander of the UN mission to Rwanda, he thought he was heading off to Africa to help two warring parties achieve a peace both sides wanted. Instead, he and members of his small international force were caught up in a vortex of civil war and genocide. Dallaire left Rwanda a broken man; disillusioned, suicidal, and determined to tell his story. An award-winning international sensation, Shake Hands with the Devil is a landmark contribution to the literature of war: a remarkable tale of a soldier's courage and an unforgettable portrait of modern warfare. It is also a stinging indictment of the petty bureaucrats who refused to give Dallaire the men and the operational freedom he needed to stop the killing. 'I know there is a God,' Dallaire writes, 'because in Rwanda I shook hands with the devil. I have seen him, I have smelled him and I have touched him. I know the devil exists and therefore I know there is a God.'

»Peter Littger hat mit Hingabe eine überwältigende Anzahl Fettnäpfchen gesammelt, in die wir hineinstapfen, wenn wir Englisch parlieren.« WDR5 Richtiges Englisch? Verdammt schwierig. Millionen Deutsche geben sich für ihr Sprachkönnen eine gute Note, doch selbst die Besten machen Fehler. Humorvoll und geistreich bringt der Autor der erfolgreichen SPIEGEL-ONLINE-Kolumne »Fluent English« Licht ins Dickicht der deutsch-englischen Sprachverwirrung. »I know what you mean.« Spätestens wenn Sie diesen freundlichen Satz von Ihrem englischen oder amerikanischen Gesprächspartner hören, ahnen Sie vielleicht, dass Sie für einen unfreiwillig komischen Moment im englisch-deutschen Sprachaustausch gesorgt haben. Zum Beispiel, wenn Sie beim Eisverkäufer »two ice balls« bestellt, die Kollegen über den »beamer in the conference room« informiert oder sich über eine »genial idea« gefreut haben. But don’t make you worries! In 23 Kapiteln erzählt Peter Littger unterhaltsame und nützliche Geschichten von unserem “English made in Germany” und hilft typische Fallstricke in unserem Alltagsenglisch aufzudecken und Missverständnisse zu vermeiden. »The devil lies in the detail« – it’s a handy companion for those wanting to improve their English.

Shirin Ebadi, die erste muslimische Friedensnobelpreisträgerin, wurde wegen ihres Engagements für Menschenrechte in ihrem Heimatland jahrelang von der iranischen Regierung bedroht und schikaniert – und verlor dabei alles: ihren Ehemann, ihr Zuhause, ihre Freunde, ihr Hab und Gut. Nur eines konnte man der Menschenrechtsaktivistin nicht nehmen: den Glauben an eine bessere Zukunft und den Willen, für ihre Überzeugungen zu kämpfen. Nun erzählt sie auf bewegende und erschütternde Weise von ihrem unablässigen Kampf für Freiheit und Gerechtigkeit, den sie trotz aller Widrigkeiten auch im Exil unerschrocken fortführt. Nach dem großen Erfolg von »Mein Iran« ist dies der zweite Teil ihrer beeindruckenden Geschichte.

Hollywood’s Africa after 1994 investigates Hollywood’s colonial film legacy in the postapartheid era, and contemplates what has changed in the West’s representations of Africa. How do we read twenty-first-century projections of human rights issues—child soldiers, genocide, the exploitation of the poor by multinational corporations, dictatorial rule, truth and reconciliation—within the contexts of celebrity humanitarianism, “new” military humanitarianism, and Western support for regime change in Africa and beyond? A number of films after 1994, such as Black Hawk Down, Hotel Rwanda, Blood Diamond, The Last King of Scotland, The Constant Gardener, Shake Hands with the Devil, Tears of the Sun, and District 9, construct explicit and implicit arguments about the effects of Western intervention in Africa. Do the emphases on human rights in the films offer a poignant expression of our shared humanity? Do they echo the colonial tropes of former “civilizing missions?” Or do human rights violations operate as yet another mine of sensational images for Hollywood’s spectacular storytelling? The volume provides analyses by academics and activists in the fields of African studies, English, film and media studies, international relations, and sociology across continents. This thoughtful and highly engaging book is a valuable resource for those who seek new and varied approaches to films about Africa. Contributors Harry Garuba and Natasha Himmelman Margaret R.

Longlisted for the RBC Taylor Prize: In this piercing memoir, Roméo Dallaire, retired general and former senator, the author of the bestsellers Shake Hands with the Devil andThey Fight Like Soldiers, They Die Like Children, and one of the world's leading humanitarians, delves deep into his life since the Rwandan genocide. At the heart of Waiting for First Light is a no-holds-barred self-portrait of a top political and military figure whose nights are invaded by despair, but who at first light faces the day with the renewed desire to make a difference in the world. Roméo Dallaire, traumatized by witnessing genocide on an imponderable scale in Rwanda, reflects in these pages on the nature of PTSD and the impact of that deep wound on his life since 1994, and on how he motivates himself and others to humanitarian work despite his constant struggle. Though he had been a leader in peace and in war at all levels up to deputy commander of the Canadian Army, his PTSD led to his medical dismissal from the Canadian Forces in April 2000, a blow that almost killed him. But he crawled out of the hole he fell into after he had to take off the uniform, and he has been inspiring people to give their all to multiple missions ever since, from ending genocide to eradicating the use of child soldiers to revolutionizing officer training so that our soldiers can better deal with the muddy reality of modern conflict zones and to revolutionizing our thinking about the changing nature of conflict itself. His new book is as compelling and original an account of suffering and endurance as Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking and William Styron's Darkness Visible.

Der einzige Roman der Nobelpreisträgerin Alice Munro – ein frühes Meisterwerk! »In der Anlage autobiographisch, nicht aber in den Details«, so hat Alice Munro ihren Roman ›Kleine Aussichten‹ beschrieben: Die junge Del Jordan wächst auf der Fuchsfarm ihres Vaters in dem verschlafenen Provinznest Jubilee auf. Ihre Freundinnen interessieren sich fürs Heiraten, die Tanten sind mit Bodenschrubben, Backen, Bügeln und der Suche nach Gott beschäftigt. Als die Mutter ein Haus in der Stadt mietet, lernt Del eine neue Welt kennen: Die der Bücher, der ersten Liebe, der Suche nach einem eigenen Platz in der Welt. Das virtuose Porträt einer jungen Frau – und einmal mehr Weltliteratur.
