обложка книги Deception Deception

From the capture of Sidney Reilly, the ‘Ace of Spies’, by Lenin’s Bolsheviks in 1925, to the deportation from the USA of Anna Chapman, the ’Redhead under the Bed’, in 2010, Kremlin and Western spymasters have battled for supremacy for nearly a century.

In Deception Edward Lucas uncovers the real story of Chapman and her colleagues in Britain and America, unveiling their clandestine missions and the spy-hunt that led to their downfall. It reveals unknown triumphs and disasters of Western intelligence in the Cold War, providing the background to the new world of industrial and political espionage. To tell the story of post-Soviet espionage, Lucas draws on exclusive interviews with Russia’s top NATO spy, Herman Simm, and unveils the horrific treatment of a Moscow lawyer who dared to challenge the ruling criminal syndicate there.

Once the threat from Moscow was international communism, now it comes from the siloviki, Russia’s ruthless “men of power.” “The outcome,” Lucas argues, “will determine whether the West brings Russia toward its standards of liberty, legality, and cooperation, or whether Russia will shape the West’s future as we accommodate (or even adopt) the authoritarian crony capitalism that is the Moscow regime’s hallmark.”

обложка книги Destruction and Sorrow beneath the Heavens: Reportage Destruction and Sorrow beneath the Heavens: Reportage

Known for his brilliantly dark fictional visions, László Krasznahorkai is one of the most respected European writers of his generation and the winner of the 2015 Man Booker International Prize. Here, he brings us on a journey through China at the dawn of the new millennium. On the precipice of its emergence as a global power, China is experiencing cataclysms of modernity as its harsh Maoist strictures meet the chaotic flux of globalism. What remains of the Middle Kingdom’s ancient cultural riches? And can a Westerner truly understand China’s past and present — or the murky waters where the two meet?

Destruction and Sorrow beneath the Heavens is both a travel memoir and the chronicle of a distinct intellectual shift as one of the most captivating contemporary writers and thinkers begins to engage with the cultures of Asia and the legacies of its interactions with Europe in a newly globalized society. Rendered in English by award-winning translator Ottilie Mulzet, Destruction and Sorrow beneath the Heavens is an important work, marking the emergence of Krasznahorkai as a truly global novelist.

Praise for Krasznahorkai

“The contemporary Hungarian master of the apocalypse.”—Susan Sontag

“Krasznahorkai delights in unorthodox description; no object is too insignificant for his worrying gaze. . He offers us stories that are relentlessly generative and defiantly irresolvable. They are haunting, pleasantly weird, and ultimately, bigger than the worlds they inhabit.”—New York Times

“Krasznahorkai is an expert with the complexity of human obsessions. Each of his books feel like an event, a revelation.”—Daily Beast

обложка книги Discontent and Its Civilizations: Dispatches from Lahore, New York, and London Discontent and Its Civilizations: Dispatches from Lahore, New York, and London

From “one of his generation’s most inventive and gifted writers” (The New York Times) , intimate and sharply observed commentary on life, art, politics, and “the war on terror.”

Mohsin Hamid’s brilliant, moving, and extraordinarily clever novels have not only made him an international bestseller, they have earned him a reputation as a “master critic of the modern global condition” (Foreign Policy). His stories are at once timeless and of-the-moment, and his themes are universal: love, language, ambition, power, corruption, religion, family, identity. Here he explores this terrain from a different angle in essays that deftly counterpoise the personal and the political, and are shot through with the same passion, imagination, and breathtaking shifts of perspective that gives his fiction its unmistakable electric charge.

A “water lily” who has called three countries on three continents his home — Pakistan, the birthplace to which he returned as a young father; the United States, where he spent his childhood and young adulthood; and Britain, where he married and became a citizen — Hamid writes about overlapping worlds with fluidity and penetrating insight. Whether he is discussing courtship rituals or pop culture, drones or the rhythms of daily life in an extended family compound, he transports us beyond the scarifying headlines of an anxious West and a volatile East, beyond stereotype and assumption, and helps to bring a dazzling diverse global culture within emotional and intellectual reach.

обложка книги Distrust That Particular Flavor Distrust That Particular Flavor

William Gibson is known primarily as a novelist, with his work ranging from his groundbreaking first novel, Neuromancer, to his more recent contemporary bestsellers Pattern Recognition, Spook Country, and Zero History. During those nearly thirty years, though, Gibson has been sought out by widely varying publications for his insights into contemporary culture. Wired magazine sent him to Singapore to report on one of the world's most buttoned-up states. The New York Times Magazine asked him to describe what was wrong with the Internet. Rolling Stone published his essay on the ways our lives are all "soundtracked" by the music and the culture around us. And in a speech at the 2010 Book Expo, he memorably described the interactive relationship between writer and reader. These essays and articles have never been collected-until now. Some have never appeared in print at all. In addition, Distrust That Particular Flavor includes journalism from small publishers, online sources, and magazines no longer in existence. This volume will be essential reading for any lover of William Gibson's novels. Distrust That Particular Flavor offers readers a privileged view into the mind of a writer whose thinking has shaped not only a generation of writers but our entire culture.

обложка книги «Do not disturb». Записки отельера «Do not disturb». Записки отельера

«Отели хранят тайну как по закону, так и по своему назначению. Отель — временный дом. А дом — это прежде всего крепость. Гость доверяет отелю свое имущество, персональные данные, детали личной жизни. То есть, по сути, самого себя».

Забавно и трогательно, проникновенно и с нотками грусти, но, главное, талантливо и ярко автор, отельер, владелец и генеральный менеджер гостиницы «Гельвеция» Юнис Теймурханлы, рассказывает о жизни своего бутик-отеля и его постояльцев. Здесь, как в театральном представлении, тесно переплетаются драма и трагикомедия, приключения и любовная лирика, реализм и эксцентричный фарс.

Рассказы о жизни кумиров и их назойливых поклонников, популярных писателей и зарубежных туристов, бизнесменов, звезд спорта и обычных посетителей дают возможность не только как бы самому побывать в стенах элитного отеля, но и по-новому оценить вечные ценности жизни.

обложка книги Don't Trust, Don't Fear, Don't Beg Don't Trust, Don't Fear, Don't Beg

Melting ice, a military arms race, the rush to exploit resources at any cost—the Arctic is now the stage on which our future will be decided. And as temperatures rise and the ice retreats, Vladimir Putin orders Russia’s oil rigs to move north. But one early September morning in 2013 thirty men and women from eighteen countries—the crew of Greenpeace’s Arctic Sunrise—decide to draw a line in the ice and protest the drilling in the Arctic.

Thrown together by a common cause, they are determined to stop Putin and the oligarchs. But their protest is met with brutal force as Putin’s commandos seize the Arctic Sunrise. Held under armed guard by masked men, they are charged with piracy and face fifteen years in Russia’s nightmarish prison system.

Ben Stewart—who spearheaded the campaign to release the Arctic 30—tells an astonishing tale of passion, courage, brutality, and survival. With wit, verve, and candor, he chronicles the extraordinary friendships the activists made with their often murderous cellmates, their battle to outwit the prison guards, and the struggle to stay true to the cause that brought them there.

обложка книги Double Fold: Libraries and the Assault on Paper Double Fold: Libraries and the Assault on Paper

The ostensible purpose of a library is to preserve the printed word. But for fifty years our country’s libraries — including the Library of Congress — have been doing just the opposite, destroying hundreds of thousands of historic newspapers and replacing them with microfilm copies that are difficult to read, lack all the color and quality of the original paper and illustrations, and deteriorate with age.

With meticulous detective work and Baker’s well-known explanatory power, Double Fold reveals a secret history of microfilm lobbyists, former CIA agents, and warehouses where priceless archives are destroyed with a machine called a guillotine. Baker argues passionately for preservation, even cashing in his own retirement account to save one important archive — all twenty tons of it. Written the brilliant narrative style that Nicholson Baker fans have come to expect, Double Fold is a persuasive and often devastating book that may turn out to be The Jungle of the American library system.

обложка книги Drift Drift

“One of my favorite ideas is, never to keep an unnecessary soldier,” Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1792. Neither Jefferson nor the other Found­ers could ever have envisioned the modern national security state, with its tens of thousands of “privateers”; its bloated Department of Homeland Security; its rust­ing nuclear weapons, ill-maintained and difficult to dismantle; and its strange fascination with an unproven counterinsurgency doctrine.

Written with bracing wit and intelligence, Rachel Maddow’s Drift argues that we’ve drifted away from America’s original ideals and become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war, with all the financial and human costs that entails. To understand how we’ve arrived at such a dangerous place, Maddow takes us from the Vietnam War to today’s war in Afghanistan, along the way exploring the disturbing rise of executive authority, the gradual outsourcing of our war-making capabilities to private companies, the plummeting percentage of American families whose children fight our constant wars for us, and even the changing fortunes of G.I. Joe. She offers up a fresh, unsparing appraisal of Reagan’s radical presidency. Ultimately, she shows us just how much we stand to lose by allowing the priorities of the national security state to overpower our political discourse.

Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seri­ously funny, Drift will reinvigorate a “loud and jangly” political debate about how, when, and where to apply America’s strength and power—and who gets to make those decisions.

  •  Падения великих людей
     Кэппи Уилл
     Документальная литература, Публицистика, Юмор, Юмор

    Эта книга состоит из весьма своеобразных рассказов о бессмертных персонажах истории. Хеопс и Петр І, Екатерина Великая и Ганнибал, Александр Македонский и Клеопатра, Людовик XIV и Карл Великий, как и многие другие, неприкосновенные и почитаемые, предстают в них обыкновенными смертными – порой глуповатыми, совершающими ошибки, обворожительными в своих слабостях и пороках, но все же выдающимися людьми. Такой неожиданный взгляд на давно устоявшиеся представления, а порой противоречащий сведениям из учебников, заставляет по-новому оценить свои знания.

  •  Психология религии. Факты и мысли.
     Платонов Константин Константинович
     Наука, Образование, Психология, Религиоведение, Документальная литература, Публицистика

    В жизни верующего человека большое место занимают религиозные эмоции, переживания. Проповедники религии умело используют психические переживания человека, уводя его в мир религиозных иллюзий, часто используют те или иные особенности человеческой психики для вовлечения людей в лоно церкви. Поэтому так важно изучение религиозной психологии. Книга видного советского психолога заслуженного деятеля науки профессора К.К. Платонова и посвящена важным моментам религиозной психологии. Книга не представляет собой систематического изложения предмета психологии религии. Как и в «Занимательной психологии», в своей новой работе К.К. Платонов приводит массу очень поучительных и интересных фактов и делится своими мыслями, которые возникают в связи с тем или иным явлением религиозной психологии.

    Книгу с пользой прочтут не только пропагандисты и люди, интересующиеся проблемами научного атеизма и психологии, но и верующие читатели.

  •  Мужчина всегда прав
     Сардаров Амиран
     Домоводство (Дом и семья), Эротика, Секс, Документальная литература, Публицистика

    Эта книга поможет ребятам, начинающим свой путь самца, а также тем, которые уже наломали дров и никак не могут понять, как правильно и эффективно взаимодействовать с женщинами, как общаться, строить отношения и соблазнять. Как правильно понимать женщин: те или иные «выкидоны», о чём они говорят и что с ними делать.

  •  Putin's Praetorians
     Butler Phil
     Документальная литература, Публицистика

    Putin’s Praetorians contains the stories of some of the people involved in a unique movement to debunk those who would demonize Russia in general and Putin in particular. The “confessions” of those labeled as “Kremlin Trolls” reveal the psychology behind one of the most effective social crusading moments in history.

    The colorful personalities and passionate stories in the book also reveal a largely unspoken truth about Vladimir Putin — the real reasons why so many admire and support Russia’s leader. The combination of contributions from some of the Internet’s most famous and influential media stars, combined with stories from typical Internet aficionados blows holes in the foundations of Russiagate.

    “Today a war against freedom of the press is being waged by the self-described guardians of democracy. Too few grasp the danger of this war. The book of Phil Butler could open your eyes…”

    — F. William Engdahl, author, Manifest Destiny: Democracy as Cognitive Dissonance

    “This book blows up the Russiagate conspiracy and debunks the whole idea that the internet revolution against the demonization of Russia is anything other than a spontaneous popular reaction against what is demonstrably a pack of lies.”

    — Charles Bausman — Editor and Publisher of Russia Insider

    “Why does the Kremlin need trolls when Google, who everybody gives permission to track all of their internet activity, claims to know what you are going to do before you do? Do you really think anyone but an Intelligence agency would have built such a vehicle?”

    — Jim W. Dean — Managing Editor of Veterans Today
  •  Исповедь сталинского поколения. Отклики на судебный процесс И.Т. Шеховцова, фильм «Очищение» и книгу «Дело Сталина-„преступника“ и его защитника»
     Гагут Л Д
     Документальная литература, Публицистика

    Иван Тимофеевич Шеховцов получил известность не только в Советском Союзе, но и за рубежом в связи с состоявшимися в 1988–1990 гг. в Москве судебными процессами, на которых он, солдат Великой Отечественной войны, защищал честь и достоинство поколения сталинской эпохи и своего Верховного Главнокомандующего И. В. Сталина. Искусство разоблачения лжи, основанное на многолетней работе в качестве следователя, прокурора и адвоката обеспечивало ему превосходство в схватке с клеветниками и перевертышами.

    Как «защитник Сталина», он был в период антисталинской истерии в «демократических» СМИ подвергнут травле и моральному террору. О драматических, порой имевших детективный характер событиях, связанных с судебными процессами, он рассказал в четырех томах написанной им книги «Дело Сталина-„преступника“ и его защитника», получившей высокую оценку читателей.

    В этой книге приведены отклики людей на судебные процессы, снятый по ним фильм «Очищение» и книгу И. Т. Шеховцова, а также бесценные свидетельства очевидцев об этом непростом периоде нашей истории, о боли униженного и оклеветанного ПОКОЛЕНИЯ СТАЛИНСКОЙ ЭПОХИ.
