Die spannende und erschütternde Geschichte des geistig zurückgebliebenen Charlie Gordon, der durch eine Operation eine überragende Intelligenz erlangt, gehört zu den erfolgreichsten Klassikern der Science-fiction. Der mehrfach preisgekrönte Roman ist in 27 Sprachen übersetzt, millionenfach verkauft und gelesen und unter dem Titel »Charly« verfilmt. Charlie Gordon, ursprünglich kaum des Lesens mächtig, ist zu Forschungszwecken operiert worden und entwickelt eine überragende Intelligenz; schließlich überflügelt er intellektuell und fachlich sogar die Professoren, die das Experiment leiten. Zu seinen Freunden zählt die Maus Algernon - das erste Lebewesen, das mit derselben Methode erfolgreich behandelt wurde. Mit den überwältigenden Fähigkeiten stellen sich für das Genie Charlie jedoch auch die ersten Probleme ein - in der Bäckerei, in der er früher arbeitete, mit seiner Familie, von der er jetzt entdeckt, daß sie ihn nie akzeptiert hat, und im Umgang mit dem weiblichen Geschlecht, vor dem er unerklärliche Angst hat. Als Charlie auf einem Fachkongreß als Attraktion vorgeführt werden soll, flieht er zusammen mit Algernon. Kurze Zeit später zeigen sich im Verhalten der Maus erste Verfallserscheinungen ... Charlies Aufzeichnungen für das Forscherteam geben dem Leser einen atemberaubenden Einblick in seine geistige Entwicklung und das Drama seiner Existenz. Die seit vielen Jahren nicht mehr lieferbaren früheren deutschsprachigen Ausgaben erschienen unter dem Titel »Charly«.

Von den Bergen Idahos nach Cambridge – der unwahrscheinliche »Bildungsweg« der Tara Westover. Tara Westover ist 17 Jahre alt, als sie zum ersten Mal eine Schulklasse betritt. Zehn Jahre später kann sie eine beeindruckende akademische Laufbahn vorweisen. Aufgewachsen im ländlichen Amerika, befreit sie sich aus einer ärmlichen, archaischen und von Paranoia und Gewalt geprägten Welt durch – Bildung, durch die Aneignung von Wissen, das ihr so lange vorenthalten worden war. Die Berge Idahos sind Taras Heimat, sie lebt als Kind im Einklang mit der grandiosen Natur, mit dem Wechsel der Jahreszeiten – und mit den Gesetzen, die ihr Vater aufstellt. Er ist ein fundamentalistischer Mormone, vom baldigen Ende der Welt überzeugt und voller Misstrauen gegenüber dem Staat, von dem er sich verfolgt sieht. Tara und ihre Geschwister gehen nicht zur Schule, sie haben keine Geburtsurkunden, und ein Arzt wird selbst bei fürchterlichsten Verletzungen nicht gerufen. Und die kommen häufig vor, denn die Kinder müssen bei der schweren Arbeit auf Vaters Schrottplatz helfen, um über die Runden zu kommen. Taras Mutter, die einzige Hebamme in der Gegend, heilt die Wunden mit ihren Kräutern. Nichts ist dieser Welt ferner als Bildung. Und doch findet Tara die Kraft, sich auf die Aufnahmeprüfung fürs College vorzubereiten, auch wenn sie quasi bei null anfangen muss ... Wie Tara Westover sich aus dieser Welt befreit, überhaupt erst einmal ein Bewusstsein von sich selbst entwickelt, um den schmerzhaften Abnabelungsprozess von ihrer Familie bewältigen zu können, das beschreibt sie in diesem ergreifenden und wunderbar poetischen Buch. » Befreit wirft ein Licht auf einen Teil unseres Landes, den wir zu oft übersehen. Tara Westovers eindringliche Erzählung — davon, einen Platz für sich selbst in der Welt zu finden, ohne die Verbindung zu ihrer Familie und ihrer geliebten Heimat zu verlieren — verdient es, weithin gelesen zu werden.« J.D. Vance Autor der »Hillbilly-Elegie«

Eigentlich sollte man längst bei einem Termin sein, doch dann klingelt das Handy und das E-Mail-Postfach quillt auch schon wieder über. Für Sport und Erholung bleibt immer weniger Zeit und am Ende resigniert man ausgebrannt, unproduktiv und völlig gestresst. Doch das muss nicht sein. Denn je entspannter wir sind, desto kreativer und produktiver werden wir. Mit David Allens einfacher und anwendungsorientierter Methode wird beides wieder möglich: effizient zu arbeiten und die Freude am Leben zurückzugewinnen.

Vehementwiderspricht Andreas von Bülow der offiziellen Version der Anschläge vom 11. September: Ohne geheimdienstliche Unterstützung war eine solche Operation nicht durchzuführen. Seine brisanten Thesen sind ein Angriff auf die Verlogenheit der CIA. Nur Stunden nach dem Terroranschlag vom 11. September hatte die US-Regierung Fotos und Steckbriefe aller Attentäter, wusste sie Bescheid über alle Drahtzieher und Hintermänner. Und blitzartig war auch Präsident Bushs Strategie gegen die Mächte des Bösen fertig. Zufall? Andreas von Bülow, früherer Bundesminister, zweifelt die offizielle Version vehement an.

Chicano Students and the Courts

In 1925 Adolfo ‘Babe’ Romo, a Mexican American rancher in Tempe, Arizona, filed suit against his school district on behalf of his four young children, who were forced to attend a markedly low-quality segregated school, and won. But Romo v. Laird was just the beginning. Some sources rank Mexican Americans as one of the most poorly educated ethnic groups in the United States. Chicano Students and the Courts is a comprehensive look at this community’s long-standing legal struggle for better schools and educational equality. Through the lens of critical race theory, Valencia details why and how Mexican American parents and their children have been forced to resort to legal action. Chicano Students and the Courts engages the many areas that have spurred Mexican Americans to legal battle, including school segregation, financing, special education, bilingual education, school closures, undocumented students, higher education financing, and high-stakes testing, ultimately situating these legal efforts in the broader scope of the Mexican American community’s overall struggle for the right to an equal education. Extensively researched, and written by an author with firsthand experience in the courtroom as an expert witness in Mexican American education cases, this volume is the first to provide an in-depth understanding of the intersection of litigation and education vis-à-vis Mexican Americans.
