              The Eighth Life: (for Brilka) The International Bestseller (Hardback)

              `That night Stasia took an oath, swearing to learn the recipe by heart and destroy the paper. And when she was lying in her bed again, recalling the taste with all her senses, she was sure that this secret recipe could heal wounds, avert catastrophes, and bring people happiness. ...But she was wrong.' At the start of the twentieth century, on the edge of the Russian empire, a family prospers. It owes its success to a delicious chocolate recipe, passed down the generations with great solemnity and caution. A caution which is justified: this is a recipe for ecstasy that carries a very bitter aftertaste ... Stasia learns it from her Georgian father and takes it north, following her new husband Simon to his posting at the centre of the Russian Revolution in St Petersburg. But Stasia's will be but the first of a symphony of grand, but all too often doomed romances that swirl from sweet to sour in this epic tale of the red century. Tumbling down the years, and across vast expanses of longing and loss, generation after generation of this compelling family hears echoes and sees reflections. Great characters and greater relationships come and go and come again; the world shakes, and shakes some more, and the reader rejoices to have found at last one of those glorious old books in which you can live and learn, be lost and found, and make indelible new friends.

              We have been harmonised: Life in China's Surveillance State (Paperback)

              CHINA TODAY. TOMORROW, THE WORLD? In China's shiny new 'Smart Cities', citizens can scarcely cross the road or buy an orange without the government knowing about it, and tweeting satirically about the Glorious Leader's dumpling-like features can land you in jail. It's often assum...ed that capitalism and the internet automatically bring freedom and democracy. But Strittmatter shows how China's autocratic leaders are using powerful new technologies to create the largest and most effective surveillance state the world has ever seen. This is a fascinating journey behind the Great Firewall into a land where Big Brother has acquired a whole new set of toys with which to control and cajole - 'harmonise' - the masses. It is also an urgent warning against Western complacency. China is already finding eager overseas buyers for its ever-upgrading 'Operating System for Dictators' - in Africa and Asia, Russia and the Middle East. It is time the rest of us paid attention. AUTHOR: Kai Strittmatter has studied China for more than 30 years. For over a decade he lived and worked there as a correspondent for the national broadsheet Sueddeutsche Zeitung, taking the decision to leave the country prior to publication of this book. He is the author of China A-Z.

              At the end of the First World War in Germany, the journalist and theatre critic Kurt Eisner organised a revolution which overthrew the monarchy, and declared a Free State of Bavaria. In February 1919, he was assassinated, and the revolution failed. But while the dream lived, it w...as the writers, the poets, the playwrights and the intellectuals who led the way. As well as Eisner, Thomas Mann, Rainer Maria Rilke, and many other prominent figures in German cultural history were involved. In his characteristically lucid, sharp prose, Volker Weidermann presents us with a slice of history - November 1918 to April 1919 - and shows how a small group of people could have altered the course of the twentieth century.
