2012 reiste der deutsch-amerikanische Journalist Michael Scott Moore nach Westafrika, um über Piraten zu recherchieren, denen in Hamburg der Prozess gemacht wurde. In Somalia wird er – bittere Ironie des Schicksals – selbst entführt und anschließend fast drei Jahre lang an verschiedenen Orten gefangen gehalten. Aber Moore bleibt stark, überlebt Gewalt, Hunger, Isolation und Terror durch IS und Al-Shabaab. Nach 977 Tagen und Zahlung von 1,6 Mio. Dollar Lösegeld kommt er frei. Dies ist die packende Schilderung seiner Entführung – eine mentale Achterbahnfahrt, aber auch eine brilliante Reportage mit Einblicken in eine unbekannte Welt. Moore schafft es, trotz seiner traumatischen Erlebnisse ein differenziertes Bild des Islam zu zeichnen und auch den Blick auf die politischen, wirtschaftlichen und religiösen Hintergründe seiner Entführung nicht zu verlieren.

The truth can set her free For the past two months, Kitty Doe's life has been a lie. Forced to impersonate Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, in a hostile meritocracy on the verge of revolution, Kitty sees her frustration grow as her trust in her fake fiancé cracks, her real boyfriend is forbidden and the Blackcoat rebels she is secretly supporting keep her in the dark more than ever. But in the midst of discovering that her role in the Hart family may not be as coincidental as she thought, she's accused of treason and is forced to face her greatest fear: Elsewhere. A prison where no one can escape. As one shocking revelation leads to the next, Kitty learns the hard way that she can trust no one, not even the people she thought were on her side. With her back against the wall, Kitty wants to believe she'll do whatever it takes to support the rebellion she believes in—but is she prepared to pay the ultimate price?

Twelve Lies That Hold America Captive

"America is a Christian nation." "All men are created equal." "We are the land of the free and the home of the brave." Except when we're not. These commonly held ideas break down in the light of hard realities, the study of Scripture, and faithful Christian witness. The president is not the messiah, the Constitution is not the Bible, and the United States is not a city on a hill or the hope for the world. The proclaimed hope of America rings most hollow for Native peoples, people of color, the rural poor, and other communities pressed to the margins. Jonathan Walton exposes the cultural myths and misconceptions about America's identity. Focusing on its manipulation of Scripture and the person of Jesus, he redirects us to the true promises found in the gospel. Walton identifies how American ideology and way of life has become a false religion, and shows that orienting our lives around American nationalism is idolatry. Our cultural notions of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are at odds with the call to take up our cross and follow Jesus. Ultimately, our place in America is distinct from our place in the family of Jesus. Discover how the kingdom of God offers true freedom and justice for all.

White Captives offers a new perspective of Indian-white coexistence on the American frontier through analysis of historical, anthropological, political, and literary materials. --> Namias shows that visual, literary, and historical accounts of the capture of Euro-Americans by Indians are commentaries on the uncertain boundaries of gender, race, and culture during the colonial Indian Wars, the American Revolution, and the Civil War. She compares the experiences and representations of male and female captives over time and on successive frontiers and examines the narratives of captives Jane McCrea, Mary Jemison, and Sarah Wakefield.
