A major literary event, the publication of this masterly translation makes one of the towering works of twentieth-century German literature available to English-speaking readers for the first time. The three-volume novel The Aesthetics of Resistance is the crowning achievement of Peter Weiss, the internationally renowned dramatist best known for his play Marat/Sade. The first volume, presented here, was initially published in Germany in 1975; the third and final volume appeared in 1981, just six months before Weiss’s death. Spanning the period from the late 1930s to World War II, this historical novel dramatizes anti-fascist resistance and the rise and fall of proletarian political parties in Europe. Living in Berlin in 1937, the unnamed narrator and his peers—sixteen- and seventeen-year-old working-class students—seek ways to express their hatred for the Nazi regime. They meet in museums and galleries, and in their discussions they explore the affinity between political resistance and art, the connection at the heart of Weiss’s novel. Weiss suggests that meaning lies in embracing resistance, no matter how intense the oppression, and that we must look to art for new models of political action and social understanding. The novel includes extended meditations on paintings, sculpture, and literature. Moving from the Berlin underground to the front lines of the Spanish Civil War and on to other parts of Europe, the story teems with characters, almost all of whom are based on historical figures. The Aesthetics of Resistance is one of the truly great works of postwar German literature and an essential resource for understanding twentieth-century German history.

The year is 1069. The Norman invaders are stealing the land of the English people, building castles to subdue them and relentlessly making a once free people into serfs. But the English will not submit. Armed resistance flares across the land. Yet, to become effective, it needs a leader who can unite the nation.That leader is Edgar Atheling, heir of Alfred the Great, a young man born to be king.Edgar knows he must defeat William the Conqueror, a ruthless leader and formidable foe. But can a 17 year old boy with an ill-equipped army challenge the Conqueror for his birthright, the throne of England? Edgar's one hope of victory is to forge an alliance with England's ancient Viking enemies and pray that the rest of his people rise up in support.Wasteland tells how the agony of war shapes and matures Edgar and how he learns to inspire loyalty from his allies and respect even from his enemies.Triumph and Catastrophe is book 2 of 'The Lost King' series. It is a fast-moving story of how a young boy comes of age in a time of victory, betrayal and revenge."Every bit as good as its prequel, The Flame of Resistance. Don't be put off if you don't like history. This story will appeal to anyone, whether interested in history or not. ""I heartily recommend this very readable and enjoyable journey into the England's history and look forward with great anticipation to the next volume in the series."

"The editor's preface (1707), p. xiii stated that the works of Richard Baxter are 'perhaps the best body of practical divinity that is extent in our own or any other tongue.' Richard Baxter lived from 1615-1691. The DIRECTORY was completed in 1665. Its scope was intended to cover all of practical theology, a summa of casuistry . . ." Timothy Keller calls it "the greatest manual on Biblical counseling ever produced."

Shortlisted for the 2016 David Gemmell Legend Award for Best Novel. The third in The Faithful and the Fallen series, Ruin by John Gwynne continues the gripping battle of good vs evil. The Banished Lands are engulfed in war and chaos. The cunning Queen Rhin has conquered the west and High King Nathair has the cauldron, most powerful of the seven treasures. At his back stands the scheming Calidus and a warband of the Kadoshim, dread demons of the Otherworld. They plan to bring Asroth and his host of the Fallen into the world of flesh, but to do so they need the seven treasures. Nathair has been deceived but now he knows the truth. He has choices to make; choices that will determine the fate of the Banished Lands. Elsewhere the flame of resistance is growing - Queen Edana finds allies in the swamps of Ardan. Maquin is loose in Tenebral, hunted by Lykos and his corsairs. Here he will witness the birth of a rebellion in Nathair's own realm. Corban has been swept along by the tide of war. He has suffered, lost loved ones, sought only safety from the darkness. But he will run no more. He has seen the face of evil and he has set his will to fight it. The question is, how? With a disparate band gathered about him - his family, friends, giants, fanatical warriors, an angel and a talking crow - he begins the journey to Drassil, the fabled fortress hidden deep in the heart of Forn Forest. For in Drassil lies the spear of Skald, one of the seven treasures, and here it is prophesied that the Bright Star will stand against the Black Sun

„Eine action-geladene Fantasy-Geschichte, die den Fans von Morgan Rices vorherigen Büchern und den Liebhabe von Büchern wie THE INHERITANCE CYCLE von Christopher Paolini gefallen dürfte… Fans von Fantasy-Geschichten für junge Erwachsene werden dieses jüngste Werk von Rice verschlingen und um mehr betteln.“ --The Wanderer, A Literary Journal (über Rise of the Dragons) Die #1 Bestseller Serie! AUFSTAND DER TAPFEREN ist Buch #2 in Morgan Rices epischer Bestseller-Fantasy Serie VON KÖNIGEN UND DRACHEN (die mit AUFSTAND DER DRACHEN beginnt, einem kostenlosen Download)! Nach dem Angriff des Drachen wird Kyra auf eine dringende Mission geschickt: Escalon zu durchqueren und ihren Onkel im mysteriösen Turm von Ur aufzusuchen. Die Zeit ist für Sie gekommen, zu erfahren, wer sie ist, wer ihre Mutter ist und zu trainieren, um ihre besonderen Kräfte zu erschließen. Für ein einsames Mädchen ist es eine Mission voller Gefahren, denn Escalon ist voller gefährlicher Kreaturen und Männer – eine, die all ihre Stärke fordern wird, um zu überleben. Ihr Vater, Duncan, muss seine Männer nach Süden führen, nach Esephus, der großen Stadt am Wasser, um zu versuchen, seine Landsleute aus dem eisernen Griff Pandesias zu befreien. Wenn er damit Erfolg hat, wird er zum gefährlichen Lake of Ire und zu den eisigen Gipfeln von Kos weiterziehen müssen, wo die härtesten Krieger Escalons leben, Männer, die er braucht, wenn er auch nur den Hauch einer Chance haben will, die Hauptstadt zu erobern. Alex flieht mit Marco von den Flammen und gelangt auf der Flucht durch den Wald der Dornen, wo sie von exotischen Biestern gejagt werden. Es ist eine qualvolle Wanderung durch die Nacht auf dem Weg in sein Heimatdorf, wo er hofft, wieder mit seiner Familie vereint zu werden. Als er ankommt, ist er jedoch geschockt über das, was er vorfindet. Trotz besseren Wissens kehrt Merk um, um dem Mädchen zu helfen und wird zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben in die Angelegenheiten einer Fremden hineingezogen. Doch er gibt seine Reise zum Turm von Ur nicht auf und leidet innerliche Qualen, als er erkennen muss, dass der Turm nicht das ist, was er erwartet hat. Vesuvius treibt während der unterirdischen Mission der Trolle den Riesen an, im Versucht, die Flammen zu umgehen, während Theos seine eigene Aufgabe in Escalon hat. Mit seiner starken Atmosphäre und komplexen Charakteren ist AUFSTAND DER TAPEREN eine mitreißende Saga von Rittern und Kriegern, von Königen und Lords, von Ehre und Heldenmut, Magie, Schicksal, Monstern und Drachen. Es ist eine Geschichte von Liebe und gebrochenen Herzen, von Täuschung, Ehrgeiz und Verrat. Die Geschichte ist Fantasy vom Feinsten, die uns in eine Welt einlädt, die in uns auf ewig weiterleben und allen Altersgruppen und Geschlechtern zusagen wird. BUCH #3 in VON KÖNIGEN UND ZAUBERERN erscheint in Kürze. “[ DER AUFSTAND DER DRACHEN] ist eine handlungsgetriebene Novelle, die leicht an einem Wochenende zu lesen ist… Ein guter Start für eine vielversprechende Serie.” --San Francisco Book Review
