Lõpp on lähedal. Logen Üheksasõrmel võib jätkuda jõudu veel vaid ühe võitluse jaoks – kuid see saab olema vägev. Põhjalaste kuningas on endiselt võimul ning teda võib peatada vaid üks mees. Tema vanim sõber ja vanim vaenlane – on aeg, et Verine Üheksa naaseks. Inkvisiitor Gloktal on liiga palju ülemaid ja liiga vähe aega – tema võitleb teises sõjas. See on salajane võitlus, kus keegi ei saa end turvalisena tunda ja kus kedagi ei või usaldada. Glokta mõõgavõitleja päevad on ammu selja taga, see-eest valitseb ta aga surmavalt hästi oma teisi relvi: väljapressimist, ähvardamist ja piinamist. Jezal dan Luthar on otsustanud, et au ja hiilguse otsimine on liiga valus ja tüütu ning on otsustanud senisele elule selja pöörata. Tema unistuseks on lihtne elu koos armastatud naisega. Kuid ka armastus võib olla valus ning aul ja hiilgusel on vastik komme sulle selja tagant ligi hiilida siis kui sa seda kõige vähem ootad. Uniooni kuningas lamab surivoodil, talunikud mässavad ja ülikud püüavad troonile pääseda. Maailma saaks päästa vaid Esimene Maag, kuid sellega kaasnevad riskid. Ning ükski oht pole suurem kui Esimese Seaduse rikkumine… „Kuningate viimane argument“ on Joe Abercrombie „Esimese seaduse“ triloogia kolmas ja viimane raamat. Varem on Varrakus ilmunud triloogia esimesed osad „Raud ise“ ja „Enne nende poomist“.

I don't believe in God, but I miss Him. Julian Barnes' new book is, among many things, a family memoir, an exchange with his philosopher brother, a meditation on mortality and the fear of death, a celebration of art, an argument with and about God, and a homage to the French writer Jules Renard. Though he warns us that "this is not my autobiography", the result is a tour of the mind of one of our most brilliant writers.
Russell Brand will donate 100% of his money for this book to Tre Era Cafe, a social enterprise community project on the New Era estate - whose vicotory against corporations and inefficient government exemplifies the principles in this book. We all know the system isn't working. Our governments are corrupt and the opposing parties pointlessly similar. Our culture is filled with vacuity and pap, and we are told there's nothing we can do - "it's just the way things are". You have been lied to, told there's no alternative, no choice and that you don't deserve any better. Brand destroys this illusory facade as amusingly and deftly as he annihilates Morning Joe anchors, Fox News fascists and BBC stalwarts. This book makes revolution not only possible, but inevitable and fun.

For Ta-Nehisi Coates, history has always been personal. At every stage of his life, he's sought in his explorations of history answers to the mysteries that surrounded him -- most urgently, the mystery of race, an abstract concept that put the safety of him and the people he loved the most, including his son, in constant jeopardy. In Tremble for My Country, Coates takes readers along on his journey through America's history of race and its contemporary resonances through a series of awakenings -- moments when he discovered some new truth about our long, tangled history of race, whether through his myth-busting professors at Howard University, a trip to a Civil War battlefield, a journey to Chicago's South Side to visit aging survivors of 20th century America's "long war on black people," or a visit with the mother of a beloved friend who was shot down by the police. In his trademark style -- a mix of lyrical personal narrative, reimagined history, essayistic argument, and reportage -- Coates provides readers a thrillingly illuminating new framework for understanding race: its history, our contemporary dilemma, and where we go from here.

Part of Aza still yearns for the clouds, no matter how much she loves the people on the ground. When Jason’s paranoia over Aza’s safety causes him to make a terrible mistake, Aza finds herself a fugitive in Magonia, tasked with opposing her radical, bloodthirsty, recently escaped mother, Zal Quel, and her singing partner, Dai.

The God Delusion caused a sensation when it was published in 2006. Within weeks it became the most hotly debated topic, with Dawkins himself branded as either saint or sinner for presenting his hard-hitting, impassioned rebuttal of religion of all types. His argument could hardly be more topical. While Europe is becoming increasingly secularized, the rise of religious fundamentalism, whether in the Middle East or Middle America, is dramatically and dangerously dividing opinion around the world. In America, and elsewhere, a vigorous dispute between 'intelligent design' and Darwinism is seriously undermining and restricting the teaching of science. In many countries religious dogma from medieval times still serves to abuse basic human rights such as women's and gay rights. And all from a belief in a God whose existence lacks evidence of any kind. Dawkins attacks God in all his forms. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry and abuses children. The God Delusion is a brilliantly argued, fascinating polemic that will be required reading for anyone interested in this most emotional and important subject.
Revision with unchanged content. The argument of reparations on behalf of African-Americans based on slavery continues well into the 21st Century here in America. Can a gross miscarriage of injustice in 1906 sway the arguments for compensatory damages become valid based on racism? The case of the all-black 25th Infantry of the United States Army in the Brownsville Affair is perhaps one of the most egregious events in American history. On the night of August 13, 1906, a group of anonymous men went on a shooting rampage throughout the town of Brownsville, Texas, leaving one person dead and another wounded. There had been hostilities between black soldiers and white civilians prior to the shootings; therefore, it did not take long for local authorities to assume the collective guilt of black soldiers. Without an adequate investigation or a full hearing, President Roosevelt bowed to public pressure and issued dishonorable discharges to all members of the 25th who were stationed in Brownsville. Following their immediate discharge from the United States Army in December 1906, many of these soldiers were refused civilian employment due to their military status. This book is a reexamination of the Brownsville affair and its aftermath and seeks to make a case for restitution on behalf of the discharged soldiers and their families.
