Jetzt hat er eine tote Witwe und einen toten Gangster am Hals, für die er obendrein auch noch die Beerdigung auszurichten hat! Er muss also höllisch aufpassen, sich nicht zu verraten. Denn Cullen hat geschworen, den Tod seines Bruders zu rächen. Eine rasante Verfolgungsjagd durch Dublin beginnt. Zum Glück ist Paddy einfallsreich und kann sich auf seine Freunde verlassen ...

Wie Demokratien sterben

Und was wir dagegen tun können

Ausgezeichnet mit dem NDR Kultur Sachbuchpreis 2018 als bestes Sachbuch des Jahres Demokratien sterben mit einem Knall oder mit einem Wimmern. Der Knall, also das oft gewaltsame Ende einer Demokratie durch einen Putsch, einen Krieg oder eine Revolution, ist spektakulärer. Doch das Dahinsiechen einer Demokratie, das Sterben mit einem Wimmern, ist alltäglicher – und gefährlicher, weil die Bürger meist erst aufwachen, wenn es zu spät ist. Mit Blick auf die USA, Lateinamerika und Europa zeigen die beiden Politologen Steven Levitsky und Daniel Ziblatt, woran wir erkennen, dass demokratische Institutionen und Prozesse ausgehöhlt werden. Und sie sagen, an welchen Punkten wir eingreifen können, um diese Entwicklung zu stoppen. Denn mit gezielter Gegenwehr lässt sich die Demokratie retten – auch vom Sterbebett.

Von der Kunst, die Welt mit anderen Augen zu sehen

Elf Spaziergänge und das Vergnügen der Aufmerksamkeit

Eine charmante Anregung zum bewussteren Hinschauen Alexandra Horowitz, Autorin des New York Times-Bestsellers Was denkt der Hund? (Inside of a Dog), legt nun ein zweites, ebenso kluges, unterhaltsames und überraschendes Sachbuch vor. Von der Kunst, die Welt mit anderen Augen zu sehen öffnet unseren Blick für Dinge, die wir erst sehen, wenn wir uns die Zeit dafür nehmen und wenn wir die Perspektive eines anderen zu unserer eigenen machen. Das Buch verdeutlicht, wie selektiv wir gewöhnlich die Welt wahrnehmen und wie wir sie immer wieder neu entdecken können. [Horowitz], die sich als charmante Begleiterin erweist, nimmt den Leser mit auf eine Reihe von wunderbar frischen und erhellenden Spaziergängen mit ihren Experten: einem Geologen, einem Typographen, einer Illustratorin, einem Naturliebhaber, einem Wildtierforscher, einem Stadtsoziologen, einer blinden Frau, einem Arzt, einem Soundtechniker, ihrem Kindergartenkind und ihrem Hund Finn ... Die Seiten klingen und leuchten geradezu und spiegeln die tiefe Begeisterung der Autorin für ihre Arbeit und deren Ergebnisse wieder. USA Today Ein unerwarteter und entspannender Trost für unsere erhitzten Gemüter ... eine erfrischende Hommage an den Lohn des Versuchs, die Welt einmal mit den Augen eines anderen zu sehen. Chicago Tribune _____ In diesem glänzend geschriebenen Werk zeigt uns die Autorin, wie wir das Alltägliche anders sehen können, indem wir – in den Worten von Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – „Kleinigkeiten beachten“. Sie schildert elf Spaziergänge, die sie – meist in ihrer Nachbarschaft in Manhattan – mit Experten verschiedenster Gebiete unternommen hat, darunter einem Stadtsoziologen, einer Künstlerin, einem Geologen, einem Arzt und einem Sounddesigner. Auch mit einem Kind und mit einem Hund geht sie eine Runde um den Block, um herauszufinden, wie diese Wesen die Welt wahrnehmen. Indem sie schildert, was all ihre Begleiter sehen, wie sie es sehen und warum die meisten von uns nicht dieselben Dinge sehen, offenbart sie die erstaunliche Macht unserer Aufmerksamkeit wie auch die psychologisch-neurobiologischen Grundlagen fachkundigen Beobachtens. Versuchen Sie es einmal selbst: Schalten Sie, wenn Sie das nächste Mal zu einem Spaziergang aufbrechen, Ihr Handy aus und seien Sie einmal ganz in der realen Welt, in der man Schatten hören kann, in der Fremde mithilfe von Geometrie miteinander kommunizieren, während sie aufeinander zugehen, in der Haltung Bescheidenheit ausdrücken und in der sich unter einem Blatt ein winziges Universum verbergen kann – und in der wahrhaftig Welten stecken, die in Welten stecken, die in Welten stecken.
