The Butterfly Boy takes the listener on a dramatic, sweeping journey through two World Wars in Germany and races on around the globe throughout that tumultuous century. The Butterfly Boy is the story of Arnie, who as a small boy loses the use of his arms through polio, yet conquers this to grow up to be the "greatest mouth painter in the world". Born in a sleepy German town, Arnie rises to become one of Hitler's favourite artistes despite his handicap and his Jewish mother. Arnie risks his life to undertake covert activities for the Allies and the Christian resistance movement. Arnie matures into a great handsome bull of a man, who, despite not having the use of his arms, still manages to be a great womanizer and hell-raiser. The conflict between Arnie and his childhood nemesis, now Senior Nazi Officer Ratwerller, is a battle to the death that slashes through their lives like a sharpened razor. They stop at nothing to seek the destruction of each other. After the war Arnie, The Butterfly Boy, builds the Mouth Painting Charity around the world from which he makes tens of millions of dollars whilst destroying anyone that stands in his way. But it is his own waywardness and his unresolved past that haunts him. This is the story of an extraordinary man, taking an extraordinary journey during extraordinary times. You will love and fear for Arnie, and be hypnotized by him. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Whale, Tony Klinger.

Enduring Courage: Ace Pilot Eddie Rickenbacker ...

The sensational true story of Eddie Rickenbacker, America's greatest flying ace. At the turn of the 20th century two new technologies - the car and airplane - took the nation’s imagination by storm as they burst, like comets, into American life. The brave souls that leaped into these dangerous contraptions and pushed them to unexplored extremes became new American heroes: The race car driver and the flying ace. No individual did more to create and intensify these raw new roles than the tall, gangly Eddie Rickenbacker, who defied death over and over with such courage and pluck that a generation of Americans came to know his face better than the president’s. The son of poor, German-speaking Swiss immigrants in Columbus, Ohio, Rickenbacker overcame the specter of his father’s violent death, a debilitating handicap, and, later, accusations of being a German spy, to become the American military ace of aces in World War I and a Medal of Honor recipient. He and his high-spirited, all-too-short-lived pilot comrades, created a new kind of aviation warfare, as they pushed their machines to the edge of destruction - and often over it - without parachutes, radios, or radar. Enduring Courage is the electrifying story of the beginning of America’s love affair with speed - and how one man above all the rest showed a nation the way forward. No simple daredevil, he was an innovator on the racetrack, a skilled aerial dualist and squadron commander, and founder of Eastern Air Lines. Decades after his heroics against the Red Baron’s Flying Circus, he again showed a war-weary nation what it took to survive against nearly insurmountable odds when he and seven others endured a harrowing three-week ordeal adrift without food or water in the Pacific during World War II. For the first time, Enduring Courage peels back the layers of hero to reveal the man himself. With impeccable research and a gripping narrative, John F. Ross tells the unforgettable s 1.

The Best You Ediciones is pleased to present the book Sigue Soñando - Dream On - by the Irish author John Richardson. John is a best-selling author and has written several best-selling books. He is a serial entrepreneur who has built a number of seven-figure businesses. John likes challenges. And nearly every year since, he's created a new and exciting challenge for himself. The most famous of these challenges was his attempt to shoot a par round of golf within a year. Without exception the golfing world told him that was impossible. Legendary golfer Sam Torrance famously told him to "dream on". But he got it! John's next challenge was to write a book about the story. The book was published by one local publisher and created the runaway best-selling golf book in the UK for a full 18 months. The book has now successfully been sold to U.S. and German publishers, and a movie of the story is in production. The Best You Ediciones publishes the first version in Spanish of this amazing story. "Tengo un amigo, un tipo llamado John, que está acometiendo un desafío relacionado con el golf. Trabaja a jornada completa, tiene esposa e hija y está intentando efectuar un recorrido igualando o mejorando el par en el plazo de un año. Sam Torrance, el famoso golfista y comentarista escocés, lanzó una carcajada, luego consideró sin prisa la pregunta y dijo: "Bueno, puedes decirle de mi parte que Siga Soñando". Sigue Soñando es la verdadera historia de cómo John Richardson pasó de tener un handicap de 24 a romper el par en un año (72) en el campo de golf local mientras trabajaba en un negocio muy exigente e intentaba ser un buen marido y excelente padre.

A remarkable man's view of three military disasters This book is comprised of the journals of an intelligence officer of the British Army written in often difficult circumstances as the events he experienced unfolded around him. Readers will note that while the focus of this book concentrates on notable events within the Great War, they also happen to be some of the worst military failures for the allies. Inviting himself into the war on the Western Front as an interpreter, he experienced the irresistible human wave of the German advance as it rolled back the outnumbered BEF from Mons. His journal was compiled from brief notes during the retreat and from memory whilst in hospital following a wound, capture, brief imprisonment and escape. The second journal concerns the disastrous Dardanelle's adventure-written 'in idle hours between times of furious action.' The author was able to view the events in which he was involved with clear insight and objectivity. At one point he wryly reports an outraged officer complaining that the Turks were walking about the Gallipoli Peninsula, 'as if they owned the place!' The third journal was written in Mesopotamia on a Fly-boat upon the River Tigris as Kut fell. The accounts within Herbert's book are of undoubted and vital interest as source material of the First World War. Herbert was an interesting character. He was half brother to Lord Carnarvon of Tutankhamen fame, he was pivotal in the cause of Albanian independence and was offered its throne on two occasions and he was intimate with several of the notable figures of his time including T. E Lawrence, Belloc, Buchan, Mark Sykes and others. A talented Orientalist and linguist-he spoke 8 languages fluently-he was also a serving member of the British Parliament throughout the war whilst also fulfilling his military duties. Perhaps most significantly Herbert achieved all this whist under the handicap of being practically blind, an affliction he had suffered from birth. Available in softcover and hardcover with dust jacket.

Continental Philosophy in Feminist Perspective

'We translate what American women write, they never translate our texts', wrote Helene Cixous almost two decades ago. Her complaint about the unavailability of French feminist writing in English has long since been rectified, but the situation for feminist writing by German-speaking philosophers remains today what it was then. This pioneering collection takes a giant step forward to overcoming this handicap, revealing the full richness and variety of feminist critique ongoing in this linguistic community. The essays offer fresh readings of thinkers from the Enlightenment to the present, including those often discussed by feminists everywhere -- such as Freud, Mabermas, Hegel, Kant, and Rousseau -- as well as some less subjected to feminist critique such as Benjamin and Weininger. In their Introduction the editors provide the context for understanding both how these essays fit into the larger picture of developing feminist theory and what makes their contribution in some ways distinctive.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Theaterwissenschaft, Tanz, Note: sehr gut, Universität Potsdam (Institut Medienwissenschaften), Veranstaltung: UNIDRAM Festival Potsdam, 6 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 'Guten Abend - that's all.' Mit diesen Worten begrüsst Marek Becka das lärmende Publikum und findet auf diese Weise ohne Umschweife die volle Aufmerksamkeit. Sofort schliesst er an: 'das ist nicht alles ... i can speak in German.' Mit einem - trotz allem verständlichen - Wirrwarr von Sprachfetzen deutscher, tschechischer und englischer Wörter führt er in das kommende Stück ein. Das sich abzeichnende Sprachgewirr stellt er selbst vor, es wird 'Tschinglish' gesprochen werden, eine selbsternannte Mischung beider Sprachen. Besser als nichts, denn das Figurenstück selbst wird in Tschechisch aufgeführt. Auf diese Weise stehen die Figuren und deren Spiel für alle, die dieser Sprache nicht mächtig sind, weit stärker im Vordergrund, als es sonst vielleicht der Fall gewesen wäre. Zweifelsfrei reiht sich 'Die Geschichte eines wahren Menschen' dadurch in die Tradition des Unidram-Festivals ein, dessen Beiträge sich oft durch Nonverbalität auszeichnen. Auch wenn dies sicher nicht wirklich beabsichtigt ist, so ist doch vom ersten Augenblick zu spüren, dass es in keinem Fall ein Handicap sein wird, und die Gruppe einen solchen Umstand zum willkommenen Anlass nimmt, die Vorstellung zu erweitern. Das Spiel mit den Sprachen wird jedoch nur eines unter vielen sein - 'Die Geschichte eines wahren Menschen' ist mehr als nur Puppentheater. Osteuropäisches Theater hat Tradition auf dem UNIDRAM-Festival in Potsdam, seine Besprechung auch. Die vorliegende will unter Berücksichtigung der Kleistschen Theorie zum Marionettentheater, Hans-Thies Lehmanns 'Postdramatischem Theater' und durch einen Blick auf die der Aufführung zu Grunde liegenden Texte einen bedeutenden Schritt über den Status einer einfachen Theaterkritik hinausgehen.
