Ein gefeierter Künstler, ein liebender Sohn, eine Suche nach dem eigenen Leuchten Mit einer einzigen beiläufigen Bemerkung wischt Bear Bavinsky (gefeierter Maler, zahlreiche Ex-Frauen, siebzehn Kinder) jede Hoffnung seines Lieblingssohnes Pinch beiseite, auch nur halb so viel Talent zu haben wie er. Desillusioniert zieht es Pinch raus in die Welt, in Kanada versucht er sich an einer Biografie über Bear, als Italienischlehrer in London hat er es fast geschafft zu vergessen, dass auch er einmal Großes vorhatte. Seine wahre Begabung findet er schließlich doch noch, und er schmiedet einen schier unmöglichen Plan, nicht nur sein eigenes Leuchten zu entfalten, sondern auch das Andenken seines Vaters zu retten. Kann man gleichzeitig ein gefeierter Künstler und ein liebender Vater sein? Muss ein Sohn seinen Eltern verzeihen, nur weil sie bedeutend sind? Tom Rachman hat einen elektrisierenden und immer wieder auch nachdenklich stimmenden Roman geschrieben über das Streben nach Anerkennung – im Leben und in der Kunst.

An engrossing biography of President Lyndon Johnson from the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Team of Rivals Hailed by the New York Times as “the most penetrating, fascinating political biography I have ever read,” Doris Kearns Goodwin’s extraordinary and insightful book draws from meticulous research in addition to the author’s time spent working at the White House from 1967 to 1969. After Lyndon Johnson’s term ended, Goodwin remained his confidante and assisted in the preparation of his memoir. In Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream she traces the 36th president’s life from childhood to his early days in politics, and from his leadership of the Senate to his presidency, analyzing his dramatic years in the White House, including both his historic domestic triumphs and his failures in Vietnam. Drawn from personal anecdotes and candid conversation with Johnson, Goodwin paints a rich and complicated portrait of one of our nation’s most compelling politicians.

Doris Kearns Goodwin's magnum opus tackles the big leadership questions- are leaders born or made? Do the times make the leader or does the leader make the times? In LeadershipGoodwin draws upon four of the presidents she has studied - Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson - to show how they first recognized leadership qualities within themselves, and were recognized as leaders by others. By looking back to their first entry into public life, when their paths were filled with confusion, hope, and fear, we can share their struggles and follow their development into leaders. This seminal work provides a roadmap for aspiring and established leaders. In today's polarized world, these stories of authentic leadership in time of surpassing fracture and fear take on a singular urgency.

Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of the acclaimed multi-million copy bestseller Team of Rivals, filmed by Spielberg as Lincoln, turns to the birth of America's Progressive Era - that heady, optimistic time when the 20th Century is fresh. Reform is in the air, and it is time to take on the robber barons and corrupt politicians who have brought the country to its knees. The story is told through the close friendship between two Presidents: Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909) and his handpicked successor William Howard Taft (1909-1913). The decades-long intimacy strengthens both men as they reform America, breaking up monopolies, protecting the rights of labour, banning unsafe drugs and closing sweatshops. Also at the heart of the story are the original 'muckrakers' - a brilliant group of investigative journalists at the celebrated magazine McClure's. They publish popular exposes of fraudulent railroads and millionaire senators, aiding Roosevelt in his quest for change and fairness. As Roosevelt, Taft and the muckrakers confront corruption and expose exploitation, America is reborn.

Er komponiert den Todeswalzer – zum Klang deiner letzten Atemzüge. Am helllichten Tag wird auf einer Straße in der New Yorker Upper East Side ein Mann überwältigt und entführt. Als einzige Spur bleibt am Tatort ein Galgenstrick in Miniaturgröße zurück. Kurz darauf sorgt ein Video im Internet für Aufsehen: Man sieht live dabei zu, wie dem aufgehängten Opfer langsam die Luft abgeschnürt wird. Seine verzweifelten Atemzüge bilden den Hintergrund zu einem düsteren Musikstück. Als in Neapel eine ähnliche Entführung stattfindet, reisen der Forensikexperte Lincoln Rhyme und seine Partnerin Amelia Sachs nach Italien und nehmen die Verfolgung auf. Denn solange der Täter nicht gefasst ist, wird die Musik des Grauens nicht verklingen ...

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Sonstiges, Note: 1,0, Universität Osnabrück, Veranstaltung: Seminar Filmanalyse, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Regisseur Steven Spielberg hat dem 16. Präsidenten der Vereinigten Staaten und seinem politischen Schaffen, aber auch seiner Person, mit dem 2012 veröffentlichen Film "Lincoln" ein Denkmal gesetzt. Der Film behandelt die zweite Amtszeit Lincolns und im Mittelpunkt steht der Konflikt über den Erlass des 13. Zusatzartikels bzw. Lincolns Bemühungen, diesen vor Beendigung des Krieges zu erwirken. Neben lautstarken politischen Debatten im Kongress, zeichnet das Werk auch die Situation in Washington, im Weißen Haus und u. a. der Familie Lincoln zu Beginn des Jahres 1865 nach. Abraham Lincoln wird sowohl als politisches Genie als auch als menschlicher, konfliktbehafteter Vater und Ehe- und Privatmann gezeigt. Welche im Film als Tatsachen hingestellte Dinge sind tatsächliche Fakten, welche Aspekte sind rein fiktiv bzw. der filmästhetischen Wirkung wegen enthalten oder nehmen sonstigen Einfluss auf das Werk? Steven Spielbergs "Lincoln" dient als Analysegegenstand: Ist der Film historisch genau? Und was macht ihn "metadokumentarisch"?

If you think you’re frustrated with church leadership in America, imagine how God must feel. Dr. Paul R. Ford illumines key Scripture passages to exhort readers to go back to the Spirit-led form of leadership God intends for the accomplishment of his kingdom work. By proving that leadership in the body of Christ is to be a series of functions to be fulfilled by a group of people, not just key leaders, Ford inspires a collective sigh of relief and energizes us to move forward God’s way. What a difference that would make!

The Case for Prudence in the Public Square

Page: 319

Makes the case for prudential, incremental change as the best pro-life advocacy Written for both practitioners and students of public policy and political science Leading policy strategist Clarke Forsythe speaks clearly into the fray of political striving. He campaigns for a rich understanding of the virtue of prudence, and for its application to contemporary public policy. As Forsythe explains, prudence, in its classical sense, is the ability to apply wisdom to right action. In this book he explores the importance of applying the principles of prudence to the realm of politics, especially that of bioethics. In particular, Forsythe applies these concepts to the ongoing debate among pro-life advocates regarding gradual versus radical change as the most effective way to achieve political and legislative goals. Drawing on the Bible, philosophy, and the wisdom of historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln and William Wilberforce, he makes a strong case for a strategy of incremental change or political prudence.

The Global Lincoln

Perhaps more than any other American, Abraham Lincoln has become a global figure, one who spoke--and continues to speak--to people across the world. Karl Marx judged Lincoln "the single-minded son of the working class"; Tolstoy reported his fame in the Caucasus; Tomas Masaryk, the first president of Czechoslovakia, drew strength as "the Lincoln of Central Europe"; racially-mixed, republican "Lincoln brigades" fought in the Spanish Civil War; and, more recently, statesmen ranging from Gordon Brown to Pervez Musharraf to Barack Obama have invoked Lincoln in support of their respective agendas. This fascinating volume brings together leading historians from around the world to explore Lincoln's international legacy. The authors examine the meaning and image of Lincoln in many places and across continents, ranging from Germany to Japan, India to Ireland, Africa and Asia to Argentina and the American South. The book reveals that at the heart of Lincoln's global celebrity were his political principles, his record of successful executive leadership in wartime, his role as the "Great Emancipator," and his resolute defense of popular government. Yet the "Global Lincoln" has been a malleable and protean figure, one who is forever being redefined to meet the needs of those who invoke him. The first study of Lincoln's global legacy, this book tells the unknown and remarkable story of the world-wide impact of one of America's great presidents.
