Wie groß ist eigentlich das Universum? Was wiegt unsere Erde? Und wie ist das überhaupt möglich – die Erde zu wiegen? In seinem großen Buch nimmt uns Bestsellerautor Bill Bryson mit auf eine atemberaubende Reise durch Raum und Zeit: Er erklärt uns den Himmel und die Erde, die Sterne und die Meere, und nicht zuletzt die Entstehungsgeschichte des Menschen. »Eine kurze Geschichte von fast allem« ist ein ebenso fundierter und lehrreicher wie unterhaltsamer und amüsanter Ausflug in die Naturwissenschaften, mit dem Bill Bryson das scheinbar Unmögliche vollbracht hat: das Wissen von der Welt in dreißig Kapitel zu packen, die auch für den normalen Leser ohne Vorkenntnisse verständlich sind. Das ideale Buch für alle, die unser Universum und unsere Geschichte endlich verstehen möchten – und dabei auch noch Spaß haben wollen!

Ein Buch, welches den Menschen nicht nur eine andere Sichtweise vermittelt, sondern auch Einfluss nimmt auf sein gesamtes Leben. Es geht hier nicht darum Menschen zu bewegen, alles in ihrem Leben zu verändern, sondern unter Begleitung (während eines Seminars) das eigene alte Leben mit den neuen Sichtweisen zu vereinen und unter vollkommen neuen Gesichtspunkten (eigentlich erlöst von allen negativen Erfahrungen der Vergangenheit) ein wirklich zufriedenes und glückliches Leben zu führen und zwar mit einem gesunden oder schmerzfreien Körper und einer gesunden Seele.

Bill Bryson describes himself as a reluctant traveller, but even when he stays safely at home he can't contain his curiosity about the world around him. A Short History of Nearly Everything is his quest to understand everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization - how we got from there, being nothing at all, to here, being us. Bill Bryson's challenge is to take subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry and particle physics, and see if there isn't some way to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science. The ultimate eye-opening journey through time and space, A Short History of Nearly Everything is the biggest-selling popular science book of the 21st century, and reveals the world in a way most of us have never seen it before.

Sea Changes

Historicizing the Ocean


Author: Bernhard Klein,Gesa Mackenthun

The sea has been the site of radical changes in human lives and national histories. It has been an agent of colonial oppression but also of indigenous resistance, a site of loss, dispersal and enforced migration but also of new forms of solidarity and affective kinship. Sea Changes re-evaluates the view that history happens mainly on dry land and makes the case for a creative reinterpretation of the role of the sea: not merely as a passage from one country to the next, but a historical site deserving close study.

Fictions of the Sea

Critical Perspectives on the Ocean in British Literature and Culture


Author: Bernhard Klein

Publisher: Ashgate Publishing

ISBN: 9780754606208

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 237

View: 2466

This timely collection brings together twelve original essays on the cultural meaning of the sea in British literature and history, from early modern times to the present. Interdisciplinary in conception, it charts metaphorical and material links between the idea of the sea in the cultural imagination and its significance for the social and political history of Britain. Writers considered include Shakespeare, Milton, Coleridge, Scott, Conrad, du Maurier, Unsworth, O'Brian, and others. These literary 'fictions of the sea' are discussed in relation to paintings, shanties, films, and wider issues relevant to maritime history and the historical experience of seafaring: problems of navigation and orientation, piracy, empire, colonialism, slavery, multi-ethnic shipboard communities, masculinity, gender relations. Addressing a wide range of historical, social and literary contexts, Fictions of the Sea offers a fresh analysis of the impact of the ocean on the formation of British cultural identities.
