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.

Elizabeth Taylor defines movie star. Breathtakingly beautiful from a very young age, she most successfully made the rare transition from child star to adult star. Pocketing two Best Actress Oscars and numerous other honors for achievement in acting, Elizabeth battled an overbearing stage mother, a stronghanded studio, unhappy marriages, global media attention, alcohol and prescription drug addiction, and life-long health problems to emerge, if not victorious, resolute and reflective and appreciative of all that she had experienced and learned. In addition to her career, Elizabeth is well known for her seven husbands and eight marriages, two of which were to the tempestuous Welsh actor Richard Burton, and for her magnificent jewelry collection. Her fight for funding to support AIDS/HIV research was also a major part of her lifeÍs work after her acting career was largely over. Filled with photos of Elizabeth, her husbands, her leading men, and her four children, this book tells the story of Ms. TaylorÍs almost unbelievable life as leading lady, jet-setter, and adulteress, as well as a pretty down-to-earth person simply seeking happiness. Her story is fascinating, just as she was.

A Lakeland Fellranger walking guide exploring 23 summits in the Northern Fells of the Lake District, including a wide range of walks between Keswick to the south and Caldbeck to the north. Among the summits featured are the massifs of Skiddaw and Blencathra, and the peace of the more modest fells of High Pike, Great Cockup and Carrock Fell further north. Each of the 23 fells has a dedicated chapter describing a plethora of walking routes of differing characters and difficulties (from wide bridleways up to easy scrambles), which can easily be combined to make ascents, descents, traverses or ridge routes. The chapter begins with a customised Harvey map that illustrates the routes, and shows ridge connections to neighbouring fells to assist in the planning of extended walks. In many instances pen and ink drawn diagrams show the routes from a given perspective to assist visualisation. The guidebook is fully illustrated throughout with clear elevation diagrams, detailed summit panoramas and lots of inspiring photographs. The Northern Fells is part of the eight-volume Lakeland Fellranger series by Mark Richards. Together they provide a comprehensive guide to explore and enjoy the fells of the Lake District, with a selection of routes up more than 220 hills.
