To many Arab and Muslim Americans (about three million Arab-Americans and seven million Muslim-Americans), 9-11 represented a turning point in how America is struggling to accept them as a community with a distinct religious identity. The wave of anti-Muslim hate crimes after 9-11 was the worst in the nation's history. Although it has tapered off since the early weeks of the crisis, anti-Muslim agitation in television and radio has contributed to unprecedented acts of hate crimes.

Hate Crimes Against Native Americans

Hate crimes against Native Americans are a common occurrence, Barbara Perry reveals, although most go unreported. In this eye-opening book, Perry shines a spotlight on these acts, which are often hidden in the shadows of crime reports. She argues that scholarly and public attention to the historical and contemporary victimization of Native Americans as tribes or nations has blinded both scholars and citizens alike to the victimization of individual Native Americans. It is these acts against individuals that capture her attention. Silent Victims is a unique contribution to the literature on hate crime. Because most extant literature treats hate crimesÑeven racial violenceÑrather generically, this work breaks new ground with its findings. For this book, Perry interviewed nearly 300 Native Americans and gathered additional data in three geographic areas: the Four Corners region of the U.S. Southwest, the Great Lakes, and the Northern Plains. In all of these locales, she found that bias-related crime oppresses and segregates Native Americans. Perry is well aware of the history of colonization in North America and its attendant racial violence. She argues that the legacy of violence today can be traced directly to the genocidal practices of early settlers, and she adds valuable insights into the ways in which ÒIndiansÓ have been constructed as the Other by the prevailing culture. PerryÕs interviews with Native Americans recount instances of appalling treatment, often at the hands of law enforcement officials. In her conclusion, Perry draws from her research and interviews to suggest ways in which Native Americans can be empowered to defend themselves against all forms of racist victimization.

En psykologisk relationsroman om ett äktenskap, livslögner och hur långt en kvinna är beredd att gå för att behålla det hon anser vara hennes ... Jodi och Todd har levt tillsammans i över tjugo år. De har fortfarande känslor för varandra, men den flammande passionen har sedan länge lämnat plats för ett väl inövat rollspel, med åtskilliga kompromisser och tysta eftergifter. Jodi har lärt sig att se mellan fingrarna med Todds ständiga otrohet och slagit sig till ro i den bedrägligt bekväma tillvaro som hans framgångsrika fastighetsaffärer bekostar. Hon är psykoterapeut, men tar bara emot några få, inte alltför ansträngande, patienter och har därför gott om tid att träna pilates, odla kryddor, umgås med hunden Freud och servera Todd middagar när han kommer hem – om han kommer hem. Jodi har vandrat förnekelsens väg under många år, och hon varken tror eller hoppas på en förändring. Men när Todd inleder ett förhållande med den unga Natasha går han ett steg för långt. Den välpolerade fasad Jodi arbetat så hårt för att upprätthålla rasar ihop och makarna dras nu in i ett psykologiskt maktspel där insatserna är betydligt högre än vad någon av dem kunnat ana. Och det är först nu som Todd på allvar inser vem hans en gång så fogliga hustru egentligen är ... Hustrun är en mästerligt konstruerad psykologisk roman om hur ett mångårigt äktenskap faller samman, och de inre mekanismer som kan förvandla även den mest kontrollerade människan till en hänsynslös mördare. En 65-årig debutant som avled strax innan hennes bok publicerades spås bli nästa stora thrillerhajp. A. S. A. Harrisons ”The silent wife” har jämförts med Gillian Flynns storsäljare ”Gone girl”.

Mit über 200.000 verkauften Exemplaren dominierte „Power – Die 48 Gesetze der Macht“ von Robert Greene monatelang die Bestsellerlisten. Nun erscheint der Klassiker als Kompaktausgabe: knapp, prägnant, unterhaltsam. Wer Macht haben will, darf sich nicht zu lange mit moralischen Skrupeln aufhalten. Wer glaubt, dass ihn die Mechanismen der Macht nicht interessieren müssten, kann morgen ihr Opfer sein. Wer behauptet, dass Macht auch auf sanftem Weg erreichbar ist, verkennt die Wirklichkeit. Dieses Buch ist der Machiavelli des 21. Jahrhunderts, aber auch eine historische und literarische Fundgrube voller Überraschungen.
