Chris Anderson, seit mehr als einer Dekade der Kopf hinter den TED Talks, hat das offizielle Handbuch geschrieben: ‚ÄļTED Talks: Die Kunst der √∂ffentlichen Rede‚ÄĻ. Was als j√§hrlich stattfindende Innovationskonferenz in Kalifornien begann, ist mittlerweile zu einem globalen Ph√§nomen geworden: TED Talks werden in St√§dten auf der ganzen Welt gehalten und im Internet frei zug√§nglich gemacht. Den Themen sind keine Grenzen gesetzt, einziges Kriterium: die Ideen m√ľssen begeistern und inspirieren ‚Äď und das in 18 Minuten. Anderson verf√ľgt √ľber einen immensen Erfahrungsschatz und wei√ü, was eine gute Rede gut macht. Und genau das verr√§t er in diesem Buch: - Wie entwickle ich eine Idee und spinne einen roten Faden? - Wie bereite ich mich vor: Schreibe ich ein Skript oder spreche ich frei? - Was ziehe ich an? - Und wie gehe ich mit Lampenfieber um? ¬ĽWenn Sie vorhaben, auch nur einen Ton von sich zu geben, sollten Sie dieses Buch lesen.¬ę Adam Grant ¬ĽMit den TED Talks ist die Kunst der Rhetorik f√ľr das 21. Jahrhundert neu erfunden worden. (...) Hinter dieser Revolution steckt Chris Anderson, der die Vision hat, dass gute Ideen die Welt verbessern k√∂nnen, und einen Leitfaden f√ľr die gute, √ľberzeugende Rede entwickelt hat.¬ę Steven Pinker

The Republican Alternative seeks to move beyond the mere notion of scholarly inquiry into the republic‚ÄĒthe subject of recent rediscovery by political historians interested in Europe‚Äôs intellectual heritage‚ÄĒby investigating the practical similarities and differences between two early modern republics, as well as their self-images and interactions during the turbulent seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Among the world‚Äôs most economically successful societies, Switzerland and the Netherlands laid much of the foundation for their prosperity during the early modern period discussed here.

The Billy Boy
Author: Chris Anderson
Publisher: Random House
A cult figure among loyalists, despised and feared by nationalists, Billy 'King Rat' Wright is reputed to have been involved in a number of sectarian murders before he himself was shot dead by republican gunmen inside the Maze Prison in 1997. Wright became involved with loyalist paramilitaries at the age of 16, and in the early 1990s he emerged as the UVF commander in the Mid-Ulster area. The Billy Boy documents Wright's role in the Drumcree dispute of 1995-96 and his split from the UVF, recounting how he ignored both a death threat and an order to leave Northern Ireland, only to remain in Portadown and form the Loyalist Volunteer Force. It covers Wright's trial and subsequent imprisonment for a crime it has been claimed was set up by the State; recounts the circumstances of his killing inside a top-security prison; and investigates the allegations of State collusion in Wright's death. Terrifically gripping and often disturbing, The Billy Boy is an exhaustive account of a notorious figure of the Troubles, whose life and death were surrounded by controversy and political debate.
