Students of Western civilization need more than facts. They need to understand the cross-cultural, global exchanges that shaped Western history; to be able to draw connections between the social, cultural, political, economic, and intellectual happenings in a given era; and to see the West not as a fixed region, but a living, evolving construct. These needs have long been central to The Making of the West. The book’s chronological narrative emphasizes the wide variety of peoples and cultures that created Western civilization and places them together in a common context, enabling students to witness the unfolding of Western history, understand change over time, and recognize fundamental relationships.

Zur Beerdigung ihres Vaters kehrt die junge Anthropologin August zurück nach New York, Stadt ihrer Kindheit. Hier, auf den Straßen Brooklyns, ist sie aufgewachsen.

Weiße verließen das Viertel, Drogendealer und traumatisierte Vietnamveteranen waren ihre Nachbarn, doch mit ihren Freundinnen fühlte sich August unverwundbar. Nichts schien unmöglich, wenn sie nur zusammenhielten. Doch haben sie dieser Welt etwas entgegenzusetzen? – »Ein anderes Brooklyn«, Finalist für den National Book Award, stand auf der New-York-Times-Bestsellerliste und wurde hymnisch besprochen.

Genre: Fiction

Madschids Jugendtraum war eigentlich, als Sänger berühmt zu werden. Aber auch sein jüngerer Bruder Ahmed wird durch die Ereignisse aus der Bahn geworfen. Linkisch und verträumt, interessierte er sich nur fürs Malen und Fotografieren. Nun arbeitet er als Sanitäter beim Roten Halbmond. Während die Frauen den immer schwierigeren Alltag meistern und sich um die Notleidenden kümmern, ist der sensible Ahmed zutiefst verstört. Er verschließt sich seiner Familie und seinen Freunden, wird immer radikaler in seinen Ansichten - bis er schließlich handelt. Ein Verzweiflungs- oder ein Terrorakt? Für diesen Roman hat Sahar Khalifa Tagebuchaufzeichnungen eines Presseberaters von Jassir Arafat verwendet, die während der Belagerung von Arafats Regierungssitz entstanden sind. Zudem hat sie viele Gespräche mit Frauen aus der Altstadt von Nablus geführt. Der Roman vermittelt dadurch ein authentisches Bild des Lebens im Westjordanland in den letzten Jahren.

Eine kurze Geschichte der Menschheit

Genre: History

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
