Bob Woodward, die Ikone des investigativen Journalismus in den USA, hat alle amerikanischen Präsidenten aus nächster Nähe beobachtet. Nun nimmt er sich den derzeitigen Präsidenten vor und enthüllt den erschütternden Zustand des Weißen Hauses unter Donald Trump. Woodward beschreibt, wie dieser Präsident Entscheidungen trifft, er berichtet von eskalierenden Debatten im Oval Office und in der Air Force One, dem volatilen Charakter Trumps und dessen Obsessionen und Komplexen. Woodwards Buch ist ein Dokument der Zeitgeschichte: Hunderte Stunden von Interviews mit direkt Beteiligten, Gesprächsprotokolle, Tagebücher, Notizen – auch von Trump selbst – bieten einen dramatischen Einblick in die Machtzentrale der westlichen Welt, in der vor allem eines herrscht: Furcht. Woodward ist das Porträt eines amtierenden amerikanischen Präsidenten gelungen, das es in dieser Genauigkeit noch nicht gegeben hat.

Solution to the Country’s Weighty Problems: The Body Mass Index Reduction Program, (BMIRP) is a tongue in cheek book with hilarious illustrations suggesting the enactment of a federally mandated weight -reduction program to address the obesity epidemic in the U.S. The author presented in 2012 components of the program which have since been implemented by various governmental agencies and airlines, including charging fees based upon weight and Body Mass .and restrictions on access to facilities to those with excessive Body Mass He brings to the forefront problems, such as: debt and budget crisis, threatening national bankruptcy; trade deficit; reliance upon foreign oil, and its economic and national security threats; global warming, environmental pollution, energy conservation; out of control health care costs and declining health; corpulence and enhanced weight epidemic; and deteriorating national infrastructure. For less than the cost of a trip to the Golden Corral or other comparable “all- you- can- eat” buffet restaurant, or the cost of a “Big Mac” or “Whopper” with fries, the reader is exposed to a pragmatic, innovative, comprehensive, non-political, non-idealogical program to address the nation’s monumental problems.

Focusing primarily on the exclusion of the Chinese, Lucy Salyer analyzes the popular and legal debates surrounding immigration law and its enforcement during the height of nativist sentiment in the early twentieth century. She argues that the struggles between Chinese immigrants, U.S. government officials, and the lower federal courts that took place around the turn of the century established fundamental principles that continue to dominate immigration law today and make it unique among branches of American law. By establishing the centrality of the Chinese to immigration policy, Salyer also integrates the history of Asian immigrants on the West Coast with that of European immigrants in the East. Salyer demonstrates that Chinese immigrants and Chinese Americans mounted sophisticated and often-successful legal challenges to the enforcement of exclusionary immigration policies. Ironically, their persistent litigation contributed to the development of legal doctrines that gave the Bureau of Immigration increasing power to counteract resistance. Indeed, by 1924, immigration law had begun to diverge from constitutional norms, and the Bureau of Immigration had emerged as an exceptionally powerful organization, free from many of the constraints imposed upon other government agencies.

Gefangen im eigenen Körper. Martin ist zwölf, als ihn eine rätselhafte Krankheit befällt: Er verliert seine Sprache, die Kontrolle über seinen Körper, ist nach wenigen Monaten völlig hilflos. Die Ärzte sagen seinen Eltern, er werde für immer schwerstbehindert bleiben. Was niemand ahnte: Im Kokon seines Körpers verbirgt sich ein schrittweise erwachender Geist und eine zutiefst lebendige Seele. Als Martin aufwacht, kann er nur mit den Augen Lebenszeichen geben. Eine Pflegerin erkennt schließlich, dass er sehr wohl bei Bewusstsein ist und alles um sich herum mitbekommt. Dann endlich erhält er die Hilfe, die er benötigt, um sich ganz ins Leben zurück zu kämpfen. Martin Pistorius erzählt bewegend und absolut authentisch darüber, was ihn in den elf Jahren der Hilflosigkeit am Leben gehalten hat. Sein dramatisches Buch über seine Erfahrungen zeigt, dass mit der Unterstützung einer Familie, die nicht aufgibt und einem großen Lebenswillen sogar Wunder möglich sind.
