Once more, bestselling author Joseph T. Klempner combines thrills, vivid characters, and a plot that leaves the listener breathless. A Lincoln Navigator carries three well-dressed people through the barren New Jersey salt flats. The trip is uncomfortable but necessary. Their target has no phone, certainly no email, and never answers his mail. But August Jorgenson is no country bumpkin. Before retiring, he was one of the most famous judges in the country, and only opinions like his fierce opposition to the death penalty kept him from a seat on the Supreme Court. Now his visitors, from a reality show called Trial TV, have come to enlist his aid. They are excited about an idea they have that promises to strike a serious blow against the death penalty (and boost their ratings past those of Court TV). The judge agrees to help. But as he digs into the facts of the case he becomes their enemy - an enemy who must be removed as a serious threat to their plans. When his first novel, Felony Murder, was published, Publishers Weekly called Klempner "a writer to watch." Now, Klempner is better than ever - that rare novelist with both an insider's knowledge of the world he writes about, and a talent for intelligent, compelling storytelling. 1. Language: English.

From the best-selling author of What's the Matter with Kansas?, a wonderfully insightful and sardonic look at how the worst economy since the 1930s has brought about the revival of conservatism. Economic catastrophe usually brings social protest and demands for change - or at least it's supposed to. But when Thomas Frank set out in 2009 to look for expressions of American discontent, all he could find were loud demands that the economic system be made even harsher on the recession's victims and that society's traditional winners receive even grander prizes. The American right, which had seemed moribund after the election of 2008, was strangely reinvigorated by the arrival of hard times. The Tea Party movement demanded not that we question the failed system but that we reaffirm our commitment to it. Republicans in Congress embarked on a bold strategy of total opposition to the liberal state. And TV phenom Glenn Beck demonstrated the commercial potential of heroic paranoia and the purest libertarian economics. In Pity the Billionaire, Frank, the great chronicler of American paradox, examines the peculiar mechanism by which dire economic circumstances have delivered wildly unexpected political results. Using firsthand reporting, a deep knowledge of the American right, and a wicked sense of humor, he gives us the first full diagnosis of the cultural malady that has transformed collapse into profit, reconceived the Founding Fathers as heroes from an Ayn Rand novel, and enlisted the powerless in a fan club for the prosperous. What it portends is ominous for both our economic health and our democracy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Thomas Frank.

Brand new on audiobook: Reigniting Spirit & Truth is brought to life through a passionate narration by its author, PD Vander Westhuizen.Look around, there’s not many here. This is a special place that looks like Jesus. A place of power, boldness, guidance in the Spirit; and holy obedience to His Truth. It’s the Kingdom on Earth. It fills, it satisfies, it sets free, and fills a hole within mainstream Christianity.It’s not the Truth without the Spirit or Spirit without the Truth, it’s the fullness of Messiah that drips with anointing. He is calling and enabling a radical bride, who for the first time in history will walk in the full measure of law and grace. For most of the denominations law and grace stand in opposition, but He is calling worshippers of Spirit & Truth.Can you hear the shofar blow?Spirit: Join this journey of discovering our identity in Spirit to see the blind see, the demon leave and the dead raise. Most are not walking in this because the pendulum has swung all the way to the side where the scripture is important yet the Spirit is suppressed.Truth: Many also live on the other side of the pendulum, where the Spirit is walked out, but the Truth the Spirit wants to testify of, is not. Many have all along been ignorant of what sin is, that the new covenant is much bigger than previously thought, and how your identity as God’s people (Israel) will change your life forever."The book boldly proclaims repentance and a restoration of God's word (remembering the law of Moses) and also the equally important need to be led by the Set Apart Spirit. The time has come for believers to leave behind a half baked faith and re-ignite a burning passion for both Spirit and Truth, leaving neither behind." (Jake Grant, Now You See TV) 1.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Scratch video was a British video art movement that emerged in the early-mid 1980s. It was characterised by the use of found footage, fast-cutting and multi-layered rhythms. It is significant in that, as a form of outsider art, it challenged many of the establishment assumptions of broadcast TV - as well of those of gallery-bound video art. Scratch video arose in opposition to broadcast TV, as (anti-)artists attempted to deal critically and directly with the impact of mass communications. The context these videos emerged in is important, as it tended to critique of the institutions making broadcast videos and the commercialism found on youth TV, especially MTV. This it did in form, content and in its mode of distribution. Much of the work was politically radical, often containing images of a sexual or violent nature, and using images appropriated from mainstream media, including corporate advertising, using strategies inspired by the Situationist concept of detournement and William Burroughs'' theories of Electronic Revolution.
The good/evil dichotomy is a very powerful one when referred to the African continent. Western mass media such as TV, newspapers and cinema have taken, and continue to take, the opportunity to generate stereotypes of 'savagery', 'plague' and colorful tribalism that have practical implications for people in Africa to express their agencies. In this book I try to approach these stereotypes from an anthropological point of view by putting in opposition western with African mass media in order to debunk the construction of the reality offered in visual representations of Africa.
