This is my third Russian-language book. For some reason, this book was much more difficult to create than the previous two. The opposite should have been the case, as it was made for those who speak and read Russian at the higher B1-B2 level; thus I had more freedom to express my ideas, and the plot could be more expressive. In The Story Canonisation, the number of new words is much larger - around 1,000 lexemes, all from various topics - and the grammar structures are more elaborate. The issue for me was more about the life context. It was not an easy year in 2014 for Russia and Russians, no matter what their political views. It was not an easy year for me, either. It´s this complexity and the ambiguousness of what happened - constantly referring to history - that I wanted to reflect upon in my book. The key goal is to help learners of the Russian language. Moreover, there´s an understanding that books nowadays should be kind, humorous, and inviting, as there is far too much negativity around us, especially in the media and on social networks. My wonderful friends and colleagues also regularly reminded me of this. Inspired by the talent of Bulgakov, who mastered the skill of talking about complex subjects in an ironic form, I began producing this book. As in my previous books, the events unfold on the island of Guadeloupe. Banker George must ´´save the world´´, or, at the very least, help humanity. But, alongside this, the listener will learn about another main character, Professor Voensky, who had to leave Russia after the 1917 Revolution. He settled in Malta and subsequently left us something incredibly interesting and useful. I have tried my best to craft the book in several layers (for those who are in a hurry, it is useful for just practicing the most important words and grammar structures within the context). 1.

A fascinating, bottom-up exploration of contemporary Russian politics that sheds new light on why Putin´s grip on power is more fragile then we think What do ordinary Russians think of Putin? Who are his supporters? And why might their support now be faltering? Alive with the voices and experiences of ordinary Russians and elites alike, Sam Greene and Graeme Robertson craft a compellingly original account of contemporary Russian politics. Telling the story of Putin´s rule through pivotal episodes such as the aftermath of the ´´For Fair Elections´´ protests, the annexation of Crimea, and the War in Eastern Ukraine, Greene and Robertson draw on interviews, surveys, social media data, and leaked documents to reveal how hard Putin has to work to maintain broad popular support, while exposing the changing tactics that the Kremlin has used to bolster his popularity. Unearthing the ambitions, emotions, and divisions that fuel Russian politics, this book illuminates the crossroads to which Putin has led his country and shows why his rule is more fragile than it appears. 1.

Many people think of space as a quiet and desolate vacuum of emptiness, but new evidence reveals that space is rife with activity beyond our comprehension. Just as we sent Voyager and Pioneer probes beyond our solar system, aliens have probes of their own that may have arrived as early as the 1600s. While Tesla was the first to successfully communicate with neighboring worlds using radio waves, we have received recent signals from intelligent sources. In 1989, Russian space probe Phobos 2 photographed a UFO on the surface of Mars just prior to losing contact. Scientists have determined that the craft was real and of a thin elliptical shape over 20 miles in length. We are not alone in outer space and while the aliens may be initiating contact, they could also be here already. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Hughes.

Something has travelled for a billion years to find us - and now it has. In space, Commander Mitch Granger and his crew are nearing the end of their scientific mission - along with their covert satellite photography for the military. As they prepare for reentry, an unknown object emerges from the void: the name given to deep, dark space. The object proves impossible to evade. The crew have one option left - to bring the fragment aboard. Immediately, all contact with the shuttle is lost. NASA watches helplessly as their craft breaks orbit and heads back to Earth, where it crashes high up in the Revelation Mountains of Alaska. The space agency puts together an emergency recovery team, but the Russians also want the US military photographic data on board. The race is on to be the first to the crash site, nearly 10,000 feet up in one of the most inhospitable places on Earth. But there is another problem. Satellite images show that something else came down in the shuttle, something moving about when no one should be alive. And that seems to be growing at an alarming rate. NASA needs help and protection. Send in the HAWCs. But even HAWC captain Alex Hunter, the last supersoldier of the Arcadian program, has never come up against a threat so old and from so far.... 1.

´A fascinating and timely account of the current crisis in the relationship between Russia and the United States´ Daniel Beer, The New York Times ´Could not be more timely ... crucial reading for anyone interested in what´s happening inside Putin´s head´ Oliver Bullough, Prospect A revelatory, behind-the-scenes account of Russian-American relations, from a former US ambassador and ´Obama´s top White House advisor on Russia policy´ (The New York Times) In 2008, when Michael McFaul was asked to leave his perch at Stanford and join President-elect Barack Obama´s national security team, he had no idea that he would find himself at the beating heart of one of today´s most contentious international relationships. McFaul had been studying and visiting Russia for decades, becoming one of America´s preeminent scholars on the country during the first Putin era. During President Obama´s first term, McFaul helped craft the policy known as ´´Reset,´´ which fostered unprecedented collaboration between the two countries under Dmitry Medvedev´s presidency. Later, as U.S. ambassador from 2012 to 2014, he witnessed firsthand how Vladimir Putin´s new rise interrupted this era of cooperation and returned Russian-American relations to a level of hostility not known since the darkest days of the Cold War. From the outset of his ambassadorship, the Kremlin accused McFaul of being sent by Obama to foment revolution against Putin´s regime. This resulting insider´s account - uniquely combining history, politics and intimate personal knowledge of the corridors of power - takes us from Putin´s dacha to ornate Kremlin chambers and the Oval Office, to explain how Russia really works, and why the world has entered a dangerous new era of confrontation.
Francis Bacon was having a ball in Berlin - until his uncle Lastings disappeared, leaving Francis alone, broke, and wanted by the burgeoning Nazi party for a political murder he didn´t commit. Luckily, for a young painter still learning his craft, there´s no better place to find refuge than the cafes of Paris. In the City of Lights, Francis can perfect his French, complete his education, and - if he´s lucky - escape with his life. Strolling along the boulevard one lovely evening, he hears gunshots and sees a Russian emigre cut down by an assassin. Francis dashes into the night and flees to the countryside, but when Uncle Lastings reappears, Francis will find himself back in the thick of a deadly game of international espionage. 1.
