Six years have passed since the failed uprising of the High Holders, and the man behind the conspiracy is where the rex and Maitre Alastar can keep an eye on him. Charyn has come of age and desperately wants to learn more so that he can become an effective rex after his father - but he´s kept at a distance by the rex. So Charyn sets out to educate himself - circumspectly. When Jarolian privateers disrupt Solidar´s shipping, someone attempts to kill Charyn´s younger brother as an act of protest. Threatening notes follow in the wake of acts of violence against the rex and his family, demanding action - build more ships or expect someone to die. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Dufris.

Daniel Wagner, a veteran current affairs analyst and Asia expert, has been traveling to China since 1986, has visited the country dozens of times, has worked with some of its largest Chinese financial institutions and state-owned enterprises, and has published scores of articles on China since the 1990s. In this book, he examines why the Chinese government acts as it does on the international stage and the impacts it has had, and will have, on countries around the world in the future. Having been a leading economic and political power for centuries, it is well on its way to once again becoming the world´s leading country in the coming decade. This is due in large part to China´s amazing transformation from rural economic backwater to global manufacturing powerhouse, but also the Chinese government´s unique view of the country´s place in the world. From China´s perspective, it is merely picking up where it left off in the 19th century. Seen in Asia as the 800-pound gorilla that can more or less do as it pleases in the economic, political, and military arenas, and elsewhere in the world as a country that must be reckoned with, China plays by its own set of rules. Very few countries are willing to object or stand up to it. The book explores how and why China has approached foreign policy as it has, the impact this has had on countries around the world, and what the rest of the world can expect from China once it becomes the world´s largest economy, its strongest political power, and continues to develop its already advanced technological prowess. There is good reason why China is on the precipice of global supremacy-it has used the existing global framework to its own distinct advantage, and yet, it would like to modify that framework to ensure that its comparative advantage continues well into the future. The Chinese government has already redefined some of the rules of the game in areas such as cyber warfare and artificial intelligence, an 1. Language: English. Narrator: Raymond S Gray.

New Second Edition What if the government decided to invent a great lie to justify a disastrous war? What would happen to the people who know the truth? Extreme Prejudice delivers an explosive, high tension expose of the real facts surrounding the CIA´s advance warning of 9/11 and an insider´s look at Iraqi pre-war intelligence, told by one of the very few US assets covering Iraq before the war. It reveals the depths of deception by leaders in Washington and London to promote a successful image of their terrorism policy, and the shocking brutality to suppress the truth of their failures from Americans and the world community. 1.

The Supreme Court ruled on several landmark cases this week — not only the Affordable Healthcare Act, but also a challenge to Arizona´s controversial, and influential, immigration law. The court ruled that most, but not all, of the law was unconstitutional. It comes on the heels of President Obama’s announcement that his administration would not deport the 800,000 undocumented immigrants under 30 who arrived here as children. Next, the new movie Beasts of the Southern Wild is a Louisiana fairy tale with a six-year-old hero. Hushpuppy lives with her father in an isolated bayou netherworld they call the Bathtub, a tiny community of scavengers separated from the mainland by a levee. When a storm nearly washes the Bathtub away, Hushpuppy struggles to survive and to make sense of her perilous place in the universe.Then, just in time for Canada’s 145th birthday (July 1 is Canada Day, in case you forgot), Studio 360 gives our northern neighbor a brand makeover. For the last several weeks, we’ve been looking at the image challenge After that, Kurt Andersen and Jian Ghomeshi, the host of Q, the CBC´s daily arts and culture show go head to head in a cross-border cultural quiz. The North American showdown is the culmination to our month-long redesign project. While Studio 360 has been rebranding Canada, Q has been redesigning America.And finally, Canadian folk-rock musicians — Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Cowboy Junkies, k.d. lang, to name a few — have made it big south of the border while retaining something essentially Canadian in their music. Perhaps it’s a sense of longing born of Canada’s wide, empty spaces. [Broadcast Date: June 30, 2012] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kurt Andersen.

Grenzenloses Streben nach Macht, unstillbarer Ehrgeiz, ein Ehepaar voller ruchloser Ambitionen und Pläne, dazu noch das Wirken übernatürlicher Kräfte vor der Kulisse des mittelalterlichen Schottlands - bereits Shakespeares Tragödie Macbeth liest sich wie das Skript eines gelungenen Psychothrillers, dessen Handlung voller Schrecken, Chaos und Leidenschaft das Publikum von Beginn an fesselt.
