Summary:

D'un côté, les méchants : quatre hommes masqués, armés jusqu'aux dents, des preneurs d'otages, des terroristes, des monstres. En face, les bons : l'armée américaine, généraux, agents secrets, tireurs d'élite, des humains. Au milieu, les victimes. Seize enfants de cinq ans dans un bus détourné, arrêté sur un pont, et la jeune fille remplaçante, morte de peur, qui les conduisait au centre de loisirs, ce matin d'août. Mais si les choses n'étaient pas aussi simples ? Si les monstres étaient aussi des humains, des rebelles avec une cause, des hommes de beaucoup de foi, des êtres prêts à sacrifier leur propre vie pour qu'un jour leur pays renaisse de ses cendres ? Et si les humains étaient aussi des monstres, des patriotes calculateurs et brutaux, des professionnels insensibles, dépourvus d'imagination, qui eux aussi, font passer l'intérêt général avant l'amour de la vie ? Ben est le fils d'un général américain. Il est le messager choisi par les terroristes. Lui seul connaît la réponse, de l'intérieur.

Summary:

'Make a difference in the world, ' are the last words Maggie Gilligan's father ever says to her. They form a legacy that she carries in her heart, years later when, at the age of fifteen, she tries to better the lives of Dublin's largely forgotten poor. 'Don't go getting distracted, now, ' is what Daniel Healy's father says to him after seeing him talking to the same Maggie Gilligan. Daniel is more than distracted. He is intrigued. Never has he met anyone as dismissive, argumentative . . . as downright infuriating. A dare from Maggie is all it takes. Daniel volunteers at a food kitchen. There, his eyes are opened to the plight of the poor. It is 1913 and Dublin's striking workers have been locked out of their jobs. Their families are going hungry. Daniel and Maggie do what they can. Soon, however, Maggie realises that the only way to make a difference is to take up arms. The story of Maggie and Daniel is one of friendship, love, war and revolution, of two people prepared to sacrifice their lives: Maggie for her country, Daniel for Maggie. Their mutual sacrifices put them on opposite sides of a revolution. Can their love survive?

Summary:

DIV The world’s walls are supposed to be coming down. We speak of globalization, international markets and global villages; barriers to trade keep falling, and it is now possible to communicate instantly from nearly anywhere in the world. But just as these virtual walls come down, real walls rise. In this evocative blend of travel writing, history and politics, Marcello Di Cintio visits the world’s most disputed edges to meet those who live alongside the razor wire, concrete and steel. Along the way he shares tea with refugees on the wrong side of Morocco’s desert wall; he encounters illegal immigrants circumventing high-tech fencing around the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla; he walks Arizona’s migrant trails, visits fenced-in villages in India, and stands with those who protest against Israel’s security barrier to understand what these structures say about those who build them, and how they influence the cultures that they pen in. Venturing beyond politics, he encounters the infiltrators who circumvent the walls, the artists who transform them, and the fenced-in ignored and forgotten people who live in their shadow. The walls discussed are: 1. ‘The Wall of Shame’ in the Western Sahara, built by the Morrocans in 1987 following their defeat by the Spanish. 2. A high-tech ‘fence’ around the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Meilla. 3. The Indo Bangladesh ‘fence’, erected in 1947. 4. The West Bank Wall. 5. The ‘green line’ that separates the Greek from the Turkish-Cypriot quarters in Nicosia, the capital of Cypress, and Lefkosa, the capital of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. 6. The US-Mexico border. 7. The various barriers throughout Belfast. 8.The l’Acadie fence in Montreal, erected as a wall built of chains in 1960. /div

Summary:

We, the mankind, had pushed the self-destruct button a long time back and are currently in the final stages of the countdown, the end of which would mean the end of mankind, the end of this world, and perhaps, the end of the planet. This book is an attempt to show how mankind’s blind lust for power and supremacy can lead to its end. It is also an interesting insight into the complications that can rise out of our overdependence on technology and can accelerate our drive on the path to self-destruction. The book’s plot revolves around the use of an ancient language in mankind’s battle against its nemesis Alexander and also showcases how our science is regressive, not progressive. The protagonists manage to defeat Alexander but fail to stop him from launching nuclear missiles. And that is where the plot turns a new corner.
