Profiles In Courage For Our Time

by Caroline Kennedy, Profiles In Courage For Our Time Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Profiles In Courage For Our Time books, In the spirit of John F. Kennedy's Pulitzer Prize-winning Profiles in Courage, 13 essays honoring modern-day political heroes, penned by a collection of stellar authors. Nearly half a century after then-Senator John F. Kennedy was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Profiles in Courage, his masterful portrait of American heroes, the words "politician" and "courage" are rarely uttered in the same breath. But, as this celebration of modern political bravery amply demonstrates, there are countless examples of heroism among today's elected officials. Profiles in Courage for Our Time pays tribute to 13 such heroes, each a recipient of the prestigious Profile in Courage award. The essays' authors are as noteworthy as their subjects: Anna Quindlen writes about Governor James Florio's passing of the strictest gun control law in the nation; Al Hunt details Russell Feingold and John McCain's efforts to reform political financing; Bob Woodward writes on former President Gerald Ford's controversial decision of conscience to pardon former President Richard Nixon. "The Profiles in Courage Award seeks to honor those whose lives of service prove that politics can be a noble profession. We hope that Americans realize that there are men and women serving at all levels of our government who are legends of our time." --Caroline Kennedy Renowned authors and award-winners featured in Profiles in Courage for Our Time: --Michael Beschloss on Carl Elliot, Sr. --Bill Kovach on Charles Weltner --E.

Gespr Che Ber Ein Leben Mit John F Kennedy

by Jacqueline Kennedy, Gespr Che Ber Ein Leben Mit John F Kennedy Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Gespr Che Ber Ein Leben Mit John F Kennedy books, Eine der unvergesslichen Frauen des 20. Jahrhunderts erinnert sich an die Ehe mit John F. Kennedy und ihre - privaten wie öffentlichen - Erfahrungen. Ein Resümee, fast 50 Jahre unter Verschluss gehalten: vom Aufstieg eines Weltpolitikers bis zum dramatischen Ende, dem Attentat in Dallas. In tiefster Trauer über den Verlust ihres dreieinhalb Monate zuvor ermordeten Mannes empfängt Jacqueline Kennedy Anfang März 1964 den Historiker Arthur M. Schlesinger und gewährt ihm sieben Interviews, insgesamt sechseinhalb Stunden lang. Sie gibt ihm überraschende Einblicke in Kennedys Wirken als Senator und späterer Präsident der USA, erzählt von ihren Gesprächen mit ihm, von ihrer Rolle in seiner politischen Karriere. Sie wirft interessante, von feinem Gespür zeugende Schlaglichter auf Begegnungen mit bedeutenden Männern und weltbewegende Ereignisse wie die Kubakrise. Und auch private Belange rücken in den Blick, etwa der Glaube ihres Mannes, die Verbundenheit der Kennedy-Brüder und ihr eigenes Hineinwachsen in die Rolle der First Lady.

Der Joker

by Markus Zusak, Der Joker Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Der Joker books, Rätselhaft und spannend bis zur letzten Zeile In Eds Briefkasten liegt – eine Spielkarte. Ein Karoass. Darauf stehen drei Adressen. Die Neugier treibt ihn hin zu diesen Orten, doch was er dort sieht, bestürzt ihn zutiefst: drei unerträglich schwere Schicksale, Menschen, die sich nicht selbst aus ihrem Elend befreien können. Etwas in Ed schreit: »Du musst handeln! Tu endlich was!« Dreimal fasst er sich ein Herz, dreimal verändert er Leben. Da flattert ihm die nächste Karte ins Haus. Wieder und wieder ergreift Ed die Initiative – doch wer ihn auf diese eigenartige Mission geschickt hat, ist ihm völlig schleierhaft. • Voll Weisheit, Leidenschaft und Güte • Ein Panorama menschlicher Schicksale, mitreißend und herzergreifend erzählt • Ausgezeichnet mit dem Deutschen Jugendliteraturpreis 2007
