On 11 September 2001, a passenger jet slammed into the World Trade Centre in downtown Manhattan, New York. Then another. A third jet crashed into the Pentagon outside Washington D.C. A fourth jet crashed near Pittsburgh. The world came to a standstill. Then a global ripple effect started. What are the ramifications? How do these ripples affect international politics and alliances, global economic trends and corporate business operations across the world? The aim of this book is to stimulate thought about amendments to the global agenda which followed the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. The nature of some of these changes are already clear, others are still in the process of unfolding. For those involved in the world of business, this book contains a section on competitive intelligence, strategic thinking, strategic planning and strategic implementation. This text provides decision makers in the business community with a frame of reference, within which measures could be taken to reposition their companies in the aftermath of the attacks. Competitive intelligence, competitive analysis and strategic thinking are, however, also applied to decisions in ordinary, everyday life. This book is therefore aimed at not only the business community, but at everyone who considers these factors as matters of vital importance.

'Mr Watson, come here, I want to see you.'
It's been almost 150 years since Alexander Graham Bell said these immortal words on the first ever phone call, to his assistant in the next room. Between 10 March 1876 and now, the world has changed beyond recognition. And telecommunications, which has played a fundamental role in this change, has itself evolved into an industry that was the sole preserve of science fiction.
When the world's first modern mobile telephone network was launched in 1979, there were just over 300 million telephones. Today, there are more than eight billion, most of which are mobile. Most people in most countries can now contact each other in a matter of seconds. Soon we'll all be connected, to each other, and to complex computer networks that provide us with instant information, but also observe and record our actions. No other phenomenon touches so many of us, so directly, each and every day of our lives.
This book describes how this transformation came about. It considers the technologies that underpin telecommunications - microcircuits, fibre-optics and satellites - and touches on financial aspects of the industry: privatisations, mergers and takeovers that have helped shape the $2-trillion telecom market. But for the most part, it's a story about us and our need to communicate.

Born in Prague to a Jewish family in 1929, Dita Kraus has lived through the most turbulent decades of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Here, Dita writes with startling clarity on the horrors and joys of a life delayed by the Holocaust. From her earliest memories and childhood friendships in Prague before the war, to the Nazi- occupation that saw her and her family sent to the Jewish ghetto at Terezín, to the unimaginable fear and bravery of her imprisonment in Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen, and life after liberation.

Dita writes unflinchingly about the harsh conditions of the camps and her role as librarian of the precious books that her fellow prisoners managed to smuggle past the guards. But she also looks beyond the Holocaust - to the life she rebuilt after the war: her marriage to fellow survivor Otto B Kraus, a new life in Israel and the happiness and heartbreaks of motherhood.

The sensational Sunday Times #1 Bestseller about taking on the mafia, the Clintons and Trump.
'An urgent clarion call.' - The Financial Times

In his massive Number One bestselling memoir, former FBI director James Comey shares his never-before-told experiences from some of the highest-stakes situations of his career in the past two decades of American government, exploring what good, ethical leadership looks like, and how it drives sound decisions. His journey provides an unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in what makes an effective leader.

Mr. Comey served as director of the FBI from 2013 to 2017, appointed to the post by President Barack Obama. He previously served as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, and the U.S. deputy attorney general in the administration of President George W. Bush. From prosecuting the Mafia and Martha Stewart to helping change the Bush administration's policies on torture and electronic surveillance, overseeing the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation as well as ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, Comey has been involved in some of the most consequential cases and policies of recent history.

Never at home
Today the term “third-culture kid” is all over the internet. It has become a huge field of research, but when Caroline Kurtz grew up, only a handful of misunderstood kids knew what it was like never to belong anywhere. Those kids, with parents in the mission field, military or diplomatic services, had no support and no-one studied their needs.
Caroline Kurtz grew up in the remote mountains of Maji, Ethiopia in the 1950s. Inside their mud hut, living with her missionary parents and three sisters, she enjoyed an American family life.
Outside, her world was shaped by drums and the joy cry; Jeep and mule treks into the countryside; ostriches on the air strip; and the crackle of several Ethiopian languages she barely understood but longed to learn.
Finally, she returned to the USA, a country she did not understand, despite her upbringing.
Caroline felt like she had been exiled to a foreign country when she went to Illinois for college.
After completing her studies, she returned to Ethiopia to teach, only to discover how complex working in another culture and language really is.
Life under a communist dictatorship meant constant outages—water, electricity, sugar, even toilet paper, but she was willing to do anything, no matter how hard, to live in Ethiopia again. Yet the chaos only increased — guerrillas marched down from the north, their T-shirts crisscrossed by Kalashnikov bandoliers.
When peace returned, Caroline got the chance she'd longed for, to revisit that beloved childhood home in Maji. Maybe it would have been better just to treasure those memories.

Today, more than ever, readers turn to political nonfiction to try and understand their own position in a difficult world. On 11 March 2019 The Guardian called the growth in political nonfiction over the past two years 'stratospheric'. Caroline Kurtz's deep sense of longing for an Africa she cannot be fully part of, while never belonging in a Western culture either, will speak to many young South Africans.

Beginning in 1820, Birmingham details the Portuguese attempt to create a third, African, empire in Angola after the virtual loss of Asia and America. He charts the great flows of migrant people to and from the country that underpinned these colonial efforts and the burgeoning slave trade that went hand in hand with it. The book is a journey through the 20th century in Angola - the playing out of its politics, trade and labour practices against the backdrop of white settlement, and the eventual fall of Portuguese colonialism and Angola‟s struggle for national identity. It concludes with an examination of the civil war that ravaged the country in the 70s and 80s, which ended in 2002, but from whose legacy the Angolan people are still trying to rebuild today.

This comprehensive history traces the evolution of modern Mozambique, from its early modern origins in the Indian Ocean trading system and the Portuguese maritime empire to the fifteen-year civil war that followed independence and its continued after effects.

Though peace was achieved in 1992 through international mediation, Mozambique's remarkable recovery has shown signs of stalling. Malyn Newitt explores the historical roots of Mozambican disunity and hampered development, beginning with the divisive effects of the slave trade, the drawing of colonial frontiers in the 1890s and the lasting particularities of the provinces.

Following the nationalist guerrillas' victory against the Portuguese in 1975, these regional divisions resurfaced in a civil war pitting the south against the north and centre. The settlement of the early 1990s is now under threat from a revived insurgency, and the ghosts of the past remain.

This book seeks to distil this complex history, and to understand why, twenty-five years after the Peace Accord, Mozambicans still remain among the poorest people in the world.

Africa Reimagined is a passionately argued appeal for a rediscovery of our African identity. Going beyond the problems of a single country, Hlumelo Biko calls for a reorientation of values, on a continental scale, to suit the needs and priorities of Africans. Building on the premise that slavery, colonialism, imperialism and apartheid fundamentally unbalanced the values and indeed the very self- concept of Africans, he offers realistic steps to return to a more balanced Afro-centric identity. Historically, African values were shaped by a sense of abundance, in material and mental terms, and by strong ties of community. The intrusion of religious, economic and legal systems imposed by conquerors, traders and missionaries upset this balance, and the African identity was subsumed by the values of the newcomers.

Nahr has been confined to the Cube: nine square metres of glossy grey cinderblock, devoid of time, its patterns of light and dark nothing to do with day and night. Journalists visit her, but get nowhere; because Nahr is not going to share her story with them.
The world outside calls Nahr a terrorist, and a whore; some might call her a revolutionary, or a hero. But the truth is, Nahr has always been many things, and had many names.

She was named for the river her pregnant mother crossed when she fled from Palestine, but her feckless father called her Yaqoot, Ruby. For a time when she came of age she was Almas, Diamond, a girl who went to hidden parties in Kuwait with powerful men, who sold off parts of herself to keep her family together. She was a girl who learned, early and painfully, that when you are a second class citizen love is a kind of desperation; she learned, above all else, to survive.

She was a girl who went to Palestine in the wrong shoes, and without looking for it found what she had always lacked in the basement of a battered beauty parlour: purpose, politics, friends. She found a dark-eyed man called Bilal, who taught her to resist; who tried to save her when it was already too late.

Nahr sits in the Cube, and tells her story to Bilal. Bilal, who isn't there; Bilal, who may not even be alive, but who is her only reason to get out.

American Kompromat tells the story of the unimaginably corrupt, dissolute, and decadent subculture of the most powerful people in the world and how they have orchestrated, obtained, and used kompromat—Russian for compromising information—as leverage to achieve their political goals.
In the followup to New York Times bestseller House of Trump, House of Putin, American Kompromat will be situated in the context of the Trump-Russia scandal and the new era of hybrid warfare, kleptocrats, and authoritarian right-wing populism. But this time, rather than follow a trail of laundered money, Craig Unger will be reporting on kompromat—the Russian word for compromising information—operations that amassed the dirty little secrets of the richest and most powerful men on earth.

Set in a world of Upper East Side mansions and private Caribbean islands, of gigantic yachts and private jets, American Kompromat will show that something much more sinister and important was taking place than the public could ever imagine—namely, that from Donald Trump to Jeffrey Epstein, kompromat operations documented the darkest secrets of the most powerful people in the world and transformed them into potent weapons.

Unger will explore the nature of the compromising material they obtained, how it was obtained, who was behind it (be they Russians, Israelis, or the new American variety of oligarch), who has had access to the material since it was produced, whether it has been used for blackmail or extortion, and what roles it has played in the Trump-Russia scandal.

Anderkant Cuito is die verhaal van 'n groep oudsoldate wat teruggaan na ou basisse en slagvelde in Namibië en Angola, waar die Grensoorlog van 1966 tot 1989 gewoed het.
Hulle deel herinneringe, onthou makkers, ontlaai, reik uit na ou vyande, maak vriende langs die pad, reis deur die geskiedenis en soek na die waarheid. Hulle is die generasie wat 'n vuur - in 1914 aangesteek en aan die gang gehou deur politici - ver buite die grense van Suid-Afrika moes gaan blus.
'n Reis van 17 dae word uiteindelik 'n reis van meer as 'n 100 jaar deur die verlede. Die toergeselskap maak kennis met geskiedenis wat verswyg is, maar gedurende die Grensoorlog teruggekom het om die Suid-Afrikaanse Weermag aan die hakskeen te byt. So byvoorbeeld was daar die eerste Suid-Afrikaanse militêre operasie op die grens (1917) om die Ovakwanyama koning, Mandume ya Nedemufayo, te elimineer. Die Owambo's het dit nooit vergeet nie en koning Mandume se spook het Suid-Afrikaanse soldate gedurende die Grensoorlog agtervolg, sonder dat hulle dit geweet het. Maar die sluier word ook gelig oor Operasie Firewood (1987), een van die heel bloedigste gevegte van die Grensoorlog, toe SWAPO se PLAN-guerrillas 'n Suid-Afrikaanse aanvalsmag trompop stormgeloop het.
Die oudsoldate se reis lei uiteindelik na die veelbesproke Cuito Cuanavale: Wie het gewen? Anders as destyds word die brug by Cuito hierdie keer oorgesteek. Anderkant Cuito is waarheid, bevryding en verligting. Maar die pad lê gesaai met wrakke en geraamtes…
Anderkant Cuito - 'n reisverhaal van die Grensoorlog, is drie reise in een: 'n Fisiese reis van plek tot plek, 'n reis deur die geskiedenis, maar bowenal 'n kopreis wat die leser by 'n nuwe bestemming uitbring. Die Grensoorlog word deur 'n ander bril beskou as die een wat politici en generaals vir die soldate, hulle ouers en geliefdes opgesit het.
Miskien is hierdie die belangrikste reis in die lewens van duisende wat steeds vra: Vir wat…?
Wie behoort die boek te lees? Almal wat direk en indirek by die Grensoorlog betrokke was, in die geskiedenis belangstel en die waarheid oor dié oorlog wil weet. Dit is 'n lekkerlees boek vir diegene wat graag self 'n reis deur die ou grensgebied wil onderneem, maar om welke rede ookal nie kan nie.

Through the discovery of a precious friendship album which belonged to 12-year-old Alie, a Jewish schoolgirl in Amsterdam, Claudia Carli has traced and preserved the lives of an entire class of girls, most of whom did not survive the War. Alie and her friends are brought touchingly and vividly to life, along with their writings, in this extraordinary book. Their everyday hopes, pleasures and longings
are offset by the constant fear of a knock on the door, a missing friend from class, a family member taken away. Alie and her mother were to die in Sobibor in 1943. Alie's sister Gretha survived Auschwitz and kept her promise to her sister to preserve the friendship album so long as she hoped to live.

In this compelling book, highly acclaimed author and broadcaster Laurence Rees tells the definitive history of the most notorious Nazi institution of them all. We discover how Auschwitz evolved from a concentration camp for Polish political prisoners into the site of the largest mass murder in history - part death camp, part concentration camp, where around a million Jews were killed.
Auschwitz examines the mentality and motivations of the key Nazi decision makers, and perpetrators of appalling crimes speak here for the first time about their actions. Fascinating and disturbing facts have been uncovered - from the operation of a brothel to the corruption that was rife throughout the camp. The book draws on intriguing new documentary material from recently opened Russian archives, which will challenge many previously accepted arguments.
