Magic is returning to our world...early. Detective Leira Berens had her case blow up in her face. Literally. A last-minute surge of magic was the only thing that kept her in one piece. Now, the necklace is still in play, she has no leads, and it´s time she got in touch with her feelings. She´d rather wrestle a felon to the ground than deal with her feelings. Fortunately, there are still road trips, Cheetos and Dr. Pepper. Correk, a light elf, is willing to help...along with a swearing troll and an entire magical community she never knew existed. Austin, Texas, just got a lot more interesting. Her newfound powers hint at something more about her DNA, and oh, yeah, the Feds have noticed. But in the end, family comes first, and Leira has a shot to free her mom. She’s got to take it and still do her part to save the world. The adventure is just beginning.... Welcome to The Revelations of Oriceran. Because some believe you can´t handle the truth. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carly Robins.

Mr Selden´s Map of China
€ 9.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 1659, a vast and unusual map of China arrived in the Bodleian Library, Oxford. It was bequeathed by John Selden, a London business lawyer, political activist, former convict, MP and the city´s first Orientalist scholar. Largely ignored, it remained in the bowels of the library, until called up by an inquisitive reader. When Timothy Brook saw it in 2009, he realised that the Selden Map was ´a puzzle that had to be solved´: an exceptional artefact, so unsettlingly modern-looking it could almost be a forgery. But it was genuine, and what it has to tell us is astonishing. It shows China, not cut off from the world, but a participant in the embryonic networks of global trade that fuelled the rise of Europe - and which now power China´s ascent. And it raises as many question as it answers: how did John Selden acquire it? Where did it come from? Who re-imagined the world in this way? And most importantly - what can it tell us about the world at that time? Brook, like a cartographic detective, has provided answers - including a surprising last-minute revelation of authorship. From the Gobi Desert to the Philippines, from Java to Tibet and into China itself, Brook uses the map (actually a schematic representation of China´s relation to astrological heaven) to tease out the varied elements that defined this crucial period in China´s history.

The Rehnquist Choice: The Untold Story of the N...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the fall of 1971, when William Rehnquist was nominated to fill an Associate Justice seat on the Supreme Court, the Senate raised no major objections, and a little-known Assistant Attorney General found himself at the pinnacle of the judiciary. It seemed a straightforward choice of a relatively young, academically outstanding and politically seasoned lawyer who shared Richard Nixon´s philosophy of ´´strict constructionism.´´ As Nixon´s White House Counsel John Dean reveals for the first time that the choice was anything but straightforward. The truth is that Nixon´s nomination was the result of a dramatic, Nixonian rollercoaster. Rehnquist was a last-minute longshot who had once been dismissed by Nixon as a ´´clown.´´ Only John Dean -- Rehnquist´s champion at the time -- knows the full, improbable story. Dean´s gripping tale is loaded with revelations such as Nixon´s plan to pack the court by forcing resignations, before his inauguration. Using newly released White House tapes, and thousands of previously unseen documents, Dean puts listeners directly in the Oval Office with Nixon, Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, Rehnquist, and the candidates they considered. The Rehnquist Choice fills in a long-missing explanation of the making of the man who wrote the majority opinion in Bush v. Gore and presided over the impeachment trial of William Jefferson Clinton. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Rafkin.
