Was bedeutet es wirklich, ein Flüchtling zu sein, durch den Krieg frühzeitig erwachsen werden zu müssen, die geliebte Heimat hinter sich zu lassen und vom Wohlwollen anderer abhängig zu sein? Die junge Syrerin Nujeen erzählt, wie der syrische Krieg eine stolze Nation zerstört, Familien auseinander reißt und Menschen zur Flucht zwingt. In Nujeens Fall zu einer Reise durch neun Länder, in einem Rollstuhl. Doch es ist auch die Geschichte einer willensstarken jungen Frau, die in Aleppo durch eine Krankheit ans Haus gefesselt ist und sich mit amerikanischen Seifenopern Englisch beibringt, weil sie die große Hoffnung auf ein besseres Leben hat. Eine Hoffnung, die sich fern der Heimat in Deutschland erfüllen kann. »Ein unglaubliche tapferes Mädchen. Nujeen, ich bin stolz auf dich!« Bear Grylls »Außergewöhnlich! Die Angst, die Erschöpfung und die Niedergeschlagenheit sind auf jeder Seite greifbar.« The Times

This book is the first comprehensive academic effort to examine the phenomenon of top female political leaders in Asia. It portrays prime ministers, presidents, and opposition leaders, but it is not a conventional biographical volume. Rather, it analyzes female politicians by means of case studies that are based on a common theoretical framework. The case studies were conducted over three years of field research, which included interviews with the female leaders themselves and members of their inner circle. Each chapter explores the similarities, but also points to the distinctiveness of each female leader, arising from political and social systems, cultural and religious conditions, and economic parameters.

Why did Edwardian novelists portray journalists as swashbuckling, truth-seeking super-heroes whereas post-WW2 depictions present the journalist as alienated outsider? Why are contemporary fictional journalists often deranged, murderous or intensely vulnerable? As newspaper journalism faces the double crisis of a lack of trust post-Leveson, and a lack of influence in the fragmented internet age, how do cultural producers view journalists and their role in society today? In The Journalist in British Fiction and Film Sarah Lonsdale traces the ways in which journalists and newspapers have been depicted in fiction, theatre and film from the dawn of the mass popular press to the present day. The book asks first how journalists were represented in various distinct periods of the 20th century and then attempts to explain why these representations vary so widely. This is a history of the British press, told not by historians and sociologists, but by writers and directors as well as journalists themselves. In uncovering dozens of forgotten fictions, Sarah Lonsdale explores the bare-knuckled literary combat conducted by writers contesting the disputed boundaries between literature and journalism. Within these texts and films there is perhaps also a clue as to how the best aspects of 'Fourth estate' journalism can survive in the digital age. Authors covered in the volume include: Martin Amis, Graham Greene, George Orwell, Pat Barker, Evelyn Waugh, Elizabeth Bowen, Arnold Wesker and Rudyard Kipling. Television and films covered include House of Cards (US and UK versions), Spotlight, Defence of the Realm, Secret State and State of Play.

Bandi ist das Pseudonym des ersten literarischen Dissidenten aus Nordkorea. Sein Buch ist die Sammlung von sieben Geschichten, die in den Neunziger Jahren geschrieben wurden und erst jetzt unter riskanten Umständen aus dem Land gelangt sind. In schlichter Poesie und mit feinem Sinn für Humor erzählt der Autor von einem Leben, das vom totalitären Regime durchdrungen ist. Da ist der junge Bauer, dem die nötige Reisegenehmigung fehlt, um seine sterbende Mutter in einer nahen Provinz zu besuchen. Und die Ehe eines jungen Ingenieurs zerbricht an den vererblichen Hierarchien. Der Autor der Geschichten klagt an, macht keinen Hehl aus seiner Wut auf das Regime. »Denunziation« ist ein einzigartiger Blick in ein abgeschottetes Land und ein so mutiges wie beeindruckendes Stück Literatur.
