After spending his childhood in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia and witnessing the Communist takeover of his country in 1948, a young journalist named Milan Kubic embarked on a career as a Newsweek correspondent that spanned thirty-one years and three continents, reporting on some of the most memorable events in the Middle East. Now, Kubic tells this fascinating story in depth. Kubic describes his escape to the US Zone in West Germany, his life in the Displaced Persons camps, and his arrival in 1950s America, where he worked as a butler and factory worker and served in a US Army intelligence unit during Senator Joe McCarthy's witch-hunting years. Hired by Newsweek after graduating from journalism school, Kubic covered the White House during the last year of Dwight D. Eisenhower's presidency, the US Senate run by Lyndon Johnson, and the campaign that elected President John F. Kennedy. Kubic spent twenty-six years reporting from abroad, including South America, the Indian subcontinent, and Eastern and Western Europe. Of particular interest is his account of the seventeen years--starting with the Six Day War in 1967--when he watched the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from Beirut and Jerusalem. In From Prague to Jerusalem, readers will meet the principal Israeli participants in the Irangate affair, accompany Kubic on his South American tour with Bobby Kennedy, take part in his jungle encounter with the king of Belgium, witness the inglorious end of Timothy Leary's flight to the Middle East, and observe the debunking of Hitler's bogus diaries. This riveting memoir will appeal to general readers and scholars interested in journalism, the Middle East, and US history and politics.

Historian David E. Rowe captures the rich tapestry of mathematical creativity in this collection of essays from the “Years Ago” column of The Mathematical Intelligencer. With topics ranging from ancient Greek mathematics to modern relativistic cosmology, this collection conveys the impetus and spirit of Rowe’s various and many-faceted contributions to the history of mathematics. Centered on the Göttingen mathematical tradition, these stories illuminate important facets of mathematical activity often overlooked in other accounts. Six sections place the essays in chronological and thematic order, beginning with new introductions that contextualize each section. The essays that follow recount episodes relating to the section’s overall theme. All of the essays in this collection, with the exception of two, appeared over the course of more than 30 years in The Mathematical Intelligencer. Based largely on archival and primary sources, these vignettes offer unusual insights into behind-the-scenes events. Taken together, they aim to show how Göttingen managed to attract an extraordinary array of talented individuals, several of whom contributed to the development of a new mathematical culture during the first decades of the twentieth century.

Ein israelischer Geheimdienstler – auf Selbstmordattentate spezialisiert – erhält einen ungewöhnlichen Auftrag. Er soll über die Schriftstellerin Daphna Kontakt zu einem todkranken Dichter aus dem Gazastreifen herstellen, dessen Sohn des Terrorismus verdächtigt wird. Doch schon bald wird der Ermittler selbst in die Ereignisse hineingezogen, denn je tiefer er ins Geschehen eintaucht, desto mehr gerät sein Weltbild ins Wanken. Im zypriotischen Limassol steht er schließlich vor der Entscheidung: Soll er an seinen Überzeugungen und seinem Auftrag festhalten oder seinen unerwarteten sympathischen Gefühlen nachgeben und den Schuldigen decken? Limassol ist ein packender Roman von kühnem Realismus, der den Leser in die Abgründe der zerrissenen israelischen Gesellschaft hinabstößt und wagt, die Frage nach Richtig und Falsch, Gut und Böse noch einmal neu zu stellen.
