    Pelle Lindbergh visste redan som liten vad han ville göra som vuxen. Den stora drömmen var att bli ishockeyproffs i NHL - och att vara målvakt i Philadelphia Flyers. År 1985, vid 26 års ålder, tilldelas han som förste europé den prestigefyllda Vezina Trophy. Han är nu NHL:s bäste målvakt och har precis tagit Philadelphia till final i Stanley Cup. Den 10 november samma år kraschar Pelles röda Porsche in i en betongmur i Somerdale, New Jersey. Det är här den stora drömmen tar slut. I denna nyutgåva av Thomas Tynanders biografi skildras ishockeystjärnan Pelle Lindberghs liv med hjälp av hundratals intervjuer från båda sidor av Atlanten. Vi får en inblick i såväl uppväxten i Stockholm, som proffslivet i USA, och dessutom framkommer nya uppgifter om olyckan som satte stopp för allt. I december 2016, mer än 30 år efter den stora tragedin, hyllas Pelle inför fullsatta läktare i Philadelphia. Han är en av svensk ishockeys absolut största - och hans tröjnummer har ännu inte tilldelats någon ny spelare i Philadelphia Flyers.Thomas Tynander är en svensk journalist och författare. Hans hyllade verk skildrar nutidshistoriska händelser och människoöden på ett gripande sätt.

    Vasco da Gama (1460 – 1524) räknas idag som en av vår tids stora upptäcktsresande. Som född in i en rik familj hade han redan från början stora krav på sig att följa i deras fotspår, men han valde istället att ta upp den sjöfarandes rastlösa livsföring. Mest berömd är han för att ha hittat sjövägen till Indien från Europa, något många trodde var omöjligt. Detta är den spännande berättelsen om hur Vasco da Gama trotsade en hel världs negativa inställning och gjorde det han var född till att göra: upptäcka världen.Sven Wikberg (1890-1959) var en svensk författare och historiker. Wikberg är främst känd för sina böcker om Gustav Vasa, men hade intressen och kunnande inom flera områden. Han har skrivit både fackböcker inom historia, men även romaner som utspelar sig i historisk tid.

    av Donald L. Miller

    Seconds after Brady s plane was hit, the Hundredth s entire formation was broken up and scattered by swarms of single-engine planes, and by rockets launched by twin-engine planes that flew parallel Meet the Flying Fortresses of the American Eighth Air Force, Britain s Lancaster comrades, who helped to bring down the NazisHistorian and World War II expert Donald Miller brings us the story of the bomber boys who brought the war to Hitler's doorstep. Unlike ground soldiers they slept on clean beds, drank beer in local pubs, and danced to the swing music of the travelling Air Force bands. But they were also an elite group of fighters who put their lives on the line in the most dangerous role of all.Miller takes readers from the adrenaline filled battles in the sky, to the airbases across England, the German prison camps, and onto the ground to understand the devastation faced by civilians.Drawn from interviews, oral histories, and American, British and German archives, Masters of the Air is the authoritative, deeply moving and important account of the world's first and only bomber war.

    THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERTwo long-time friends share an intimate and urgent conversation about life, music and their enduring love of America, with all its challenges and contradictions, in this stunningly-produced expansion of their ground-breaking Higher Ground podcast, featuring more than 350 photographs, exclusive bonus content, and never-before-seen archival material.Renegades: Born in the USA is a candid, revealing, and entertaining dialogue between President Barack Obama and legendary musician Bruce Springsteen that explores everything from their origin stories and career-defining moments to their country's polarized politics and the growing distance between the American Dream and the American reality. Filled with full-colour photographs and rare archival material, it is a compelling and beautifully illustrated portrait of two outsiders-one Black and one white-looking for a way to connect their unconventional searches for meaning, identity, and community with the American story itself. It includes: Original introductions by President Obama and Bruce Springsteen Exclusive new material from the Renegades podcast recording sessions Obama's never-before-seen annotated speeches, including his "e;Remarks at the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery Marches Springsteen's handwritten lyrics for songs spanning his 50-year-long career Rare and exclusive photographs from the authors' personal archives Historical photographs and documents that provide rich visual context for their conversation. In a recording studio stocked with dozens of guitars, and on at least one Corvette ride, Obama and Springsteen discuss marriage and fatherhood, race and masculinity, the lure of the open road and the call back to home. They also compare notes on their favourite protest songs, the most inspiring American heroes of all time, and more. Along the way, they reveal their passion for-and the occasional toll of-telling a bigger, truer story about America throughout their careers, and explore how their fractured country might begin to find its way back toward unity.

    From one of America's iconic writers, a portrait of a marriage and a life - in good times and bad - that will speak to anyone who has ever loved a husband or wife or child. A stunning book of electric honesty and passion.Several days before Christmas 2003, John Gregory Dunne and Joan Didion saw their only daughter, Quintana, fall ill. At first they thought it was flu, then pneumonia, then complete sceptic shock. She was put into an induced coma and placed on life support. Days later - the night before New Year's Eve -the Dunnes were just sitting down to dinner after visiting the hospital when John suffered a massive and fatal coronary. In a second, this close, symbiotic partnership of 40 years was over. Four weeks later, their daughter pulled through. Two months after that, arriving at LA airport, she collapsed and underwent six hours of brain surgery at UCLA Medical Centre to relieve a massive hematoma.This powerful book is Didion's 'attempt to make sense of the weeks and then months that cut loose any fixed idea I ever had about death, about illness ... about marriage and children and memory ... about the shallowness of sanity, about life itself'. The result is an exploration of an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of a marriage, and a life, in good times and bad.

    MAKING HISTORY is an epic exploration of who writes about the past and how the biases of certain storytellers - whether Julius Caesar, William Shakespeare or Simon Schama - continue to influence our ideas about history (and about who we are) today. In this authoritative and entertaining book, Richard Cohen reveals how professional historians and other equally significant witnesses (such as the writers of the Bible, major novelists, dramatists, journalists and political propagandists) influence what become the accepted records of human experience. Is there, he asks, even such a thing as 'objective' history? The depth of Cohen's inquiry and the delight he takes in his subjects includes the practitioners of what he calls 'Bad History,' those thieves of history who twist reality to glorify themselves and conceal their or their country's behaviour. Cohen investigates the published works and private utterances of our greatest historical thinkers to discover the agendas that informed their views of the world, and which in so many ways have informed ours. From the origins of history-writing, when such an idea seemed itself revolutionary, through to television and the digital age, MAKING HISTORY abounds in captivating figures brought to vivid life, from Thucydides and Tacitus to Voltaire and Gibbon, from Winston Churchill to Mary Beard. Rich in character, complex truths and surprising anecdotes, the result is a unique exploration of both the aims and craft of history-making. It will lead us to think anew about our past and ourselves.
