The Weaponized Camera In The Middle East

by Liat Berdugo, The Weaponized Camera In The Middle East Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Weaponized Camera In The Middle East books, Drawing on unprecedented access to the video archives of B'Tselem, an Israeli NGO that distributes cameras to Palestinians living in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip, Liat Berdugo lays out an argument for a visual studies approach to videographic evidence in Israel/Palestine. Using video stills as core material, it discusses the politics of videographic evidence in Israel/Palestine by demonstrating that the conflict is one that has produced an inequality of visual rights. The book highlights visual surveillance and counter surveillance at the citizen level, how Palestinians originally filmed to “shoot back” at Israelis, who were armed with shooting power via weapons as the occupying force. It also traces how Israeli private citizens began filming back at Palestinians with their own cameras, including personal cell phone cameras, thus creating a simultaneous, echoing counter surveillance. Complicating the notion that visual evidence alone can secure justice, the Weaponized Camera in The Middle East asks how what is seen, but also who is seeing, affects how conflicts are visually recorded. Drawing on over 5,000 hours of footage, only a fraction of which is easily accessible to the public domain, this book offers a unique perspective on the strategies and battlegrounds of the Israel/Palestine conflict.

The Best American Short Stories 2018

by Roxane Gay, The Best American Short Stories 2018 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Best American Short Stories 2018 books, Best-selling, award-winning, pop culture powerhouse Roxane Gay guest edits this year's Best American Short Stories, the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction. "I am looking for the artful way any given story is conveyed," writes Roxane Gay in her introduction to The Best American Short Stories 2018, "but I also love when a story has a powerful message, when a story teaches me something about the world." The artful, profound, and sometimes funny stories Gay chose for the collection transport readers from a fraught family reunion to an immigration detention center, from a psychiatric hospital to a coed class sleepover in a natural history museum. We meet a rebellious summer camper, a Twitter addict, and an Appalachian preacher--all characters and circumstances that show us what we "need to know about the lives of others."

Eric Hobsbawm A Life In History

by Richard J. Evans, Eric Hobsbawm A Life In History Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Eric Hobsbawm A Life In History books, At the time of his death at the age of 95, Eric Hobsbawm (1917-2012) was the most famous historian in the world. His books were translated into more than fifty languages and he was as well known in Brazil and Italy as he was in Britain and the United States. His writings have had a huge and lasting effect on the practice of history. More than half a century after it appeared, his books remain a staple of university reading lists. He had an extraordinarily long life, with interests covering many countries and many cultures, ranging from poetry to jazz, literature to politics. He experienced life not only as a university teacher but also as a young Communist in the Weimar Republic, a radical student at Cambridge, a political activist, an army conscript, a Soho 'man about town', a Hampstead intellectual, a Cambridge don, an influential journalist, a world traveller, and finally a Grand Old Man of Letters. In A Life in History, Richard Evans tells the story of Hobsbawm as an academic, but also as witness to history itself, and of the twentieth century's major political and intellectual currents. Eric not only wrote and spoke about many of the great issues of his time, but participated in many of them too, from Communist resistance to Hitler to revolution in Cuba, where he acted as an interpreter for Che Guevara. He was a prominent part of the Jazz scene in Soho in the late 1950s and his writings played a pivotal role in the emergence of New Labour in the late 1980s and early 1990s. This, the first biography of Eric Hobsbawm, is far more than a study of a professional historian. It is a study of an era.

Desaster

by Sigrid Rausing, Desaster Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Desaster books, Die erschütternde Geschichte einer Familie über Sucht, Selbstzerstörung und den verzweifelten Wunsch zu helfen. Die Verlegerin und Tetra-Pak-Erbin Sigrid Rausing erzählt in ihrem autobiographischen Buch »Desaster« die tragische Geschichte der Drogensucht ihres Bruders, die ihre ganze Familie in die Katastrophe stürzte. Der Drogenskandal um das Milliardärsehepaar Hans Kristian und Eva Rausing und dessen tragischer Ausgang gingen weltweit durch die Medien. Unter mehreren Lagen Decken und Planen wurde Evas Leiche in der Londoner Stadtvilla des Ehepaars gefunden. Sie war bereits seit zwei Monaten tot. Hans Kristian hat sie, unfähig, ihren Tod zu akzeptieren, einfach versteckt. Sigrid Rausing erzählt nun erstmals von der bitteren Selbstzerstörung ihres Bruders und ihrem verzweifelten Wunsch zu helfen. In ihrem intimen, kathartischen Buch unternimmt sie den mutigen Versuch, das Unsagbare mit der Welt zu teilen. Hans Kristian Rausing und seine Frau Eva haben sich bei einem Entzug kennengelernt. Seitdem sind sie clean. Und sie sind verliebt. Als es zwölf Uhr schlägt, und die beiden ein Glas Champagner an die Lippen führen, sind sie seit zehn Jahren verheiratet. Sie haben vier gemeinsame Kinder. Der Rückfall der beiden wird der ganzen Familie Rausing den Boden unter den Füßen wegziehen: Kokain, Alkohol, Crack, Heroin. Sigrid, Hans‘ Schwester und Evas Schwägerin, beginnt einen kräftezehrenden Kampf gegen die Sucht ihres Bruders und muss sich irgendwann eingestehen, dass sie gescheitert ist. »Desaster« ist die intime Aufarbeitung einer menschlichen Tragödie - poetisch, klug und berührend.
