Um in Teheran zu überleben, muss man lügen. Denn im »Gottesstaat« Iran spielt sich das Leben im Verborgenen ab. Schulmädchen tragen unter dem Tschador Jeans und Turnschuhe, untreue Ehemänner pilgern nicht nach Mekka, sondern nach Thailand, brave Hausfrauen drehen Pornofilme, Mul- lahs sagen per Handy die Zukunft voraus, und beim Schönheitschirurgen werden nicht nur Nasen gerichtet, sondern auch Jungfernhäutchen wiederhergestellt. Ramita Navai erzählt von den abenteuerlichen Doppelleben der Menschen und entwirft ein faszinierendes Porträt einer Stadt, die ihren Schleier nur ungern lüftet.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Eine pechschwarze Regennacht in einer iranischen Kleinstadt, ein altes Haus. Der Colonel hängt seinen Gedanken nach. Erinnerungen stürmen auf ihn ein. An seine Jahre als hochdekorierter Offizier der Schah-Armee. An seine Kinder, die ihren eigenen Weg gingen, sich den Revolutionsgardisten Khomeinis anschlossen und in den Krieg zogen, in die Leidenschaften der Revolution und des Todes. Durch die Gassen werden die gefallenen "Märtyrer" getragen, in der Stadt werden ihnen Denkmäler gebaut. Es herrscht Krieg - diese "giftige, fleischfressende Pflanze". Und im Haus sind Geheimnisse verborgen: Ein Sohn versteckt sich im Keller, gepeinigt von den Albträumen seiner Erinnerungen. Da klopft es an die Tür. Der Colonel wird abgeführt, zur Staatsanwaltschaft... (Quelle: Klappentext).

Shirin Ebadi, die erste muslimische Friedensnobelpreisträgerin, wurde wegen ihres Engagements für Menschenrechte in ihrem Heimatland jahrelang von der iranischen Regierung bedroht und schikaniert – und verlor dabei alles: ihren Ehemann, ihr Zuhause, ihre Freunde, ihr Hab und Gut. Nur eines konnte man der Menschenrechtsaktivistin nicht nehmen: den Glauben an eine bessere Zukunft und den Willen, für ihre Überzeugungen zu kämpfen. Nun erzählt sie auf bewegende und erschütternde Weise von ihrem unablässigen Kampf für Freiheit und Gerechtigkeit, den sie trotz aller Widrigkeiten auch im Exil unerschrocken fortführt. Nach dem großen Erfolg von »Mein Iran« ist dies der zweite Teil ihrer beeindruckenden Geschichte.

Although the history of organ transplant has its roots in ancient Christian mythology, it is only in the past fifty years that body parts from a dead person have successfully been procured and transplanted into a living person. After fourteen years, the three main issues that Robert Veatch first outlined in his seminal study Transplantation Ethics still remain: deciding when human beings are dead; deciding when it is ethical to procure organs; and deciding how to allocate organs, once procured. However, much has changed. Enormous strides have been made in immunosuppression. Alternatives to the donation model are debated much more openly—living donors are used more widely and hand and face transplants have become more common, raising issues of personal identity. In this second edition of Transplantation Ethics, coauthored by Lainie F. Ross, transplant professionals and advocates will find a comprehensive update of this critical work on transplantation policies.

Sword of Persia

Nader Shah, ruler of Persia from 1736 to 1747, embodied ruthless ambition, energy, military brilliance, cynicism and cruelty. His reign was filled with bloodshed, betrayal and horror. Yet Nader Shah is central to Iran's early modern history. From a shepherd boy he rose to liberate his country from foreign occupation, and make himself Shah. He took eighteenth-century Iran from political collapse to become the dominant power in the region, recovering Herat and Kandahar, conquering Moghul Delhi, plundering the enormous treasures of India, repeatedly defeating Ottoman Turkey, and overrunning most of what is now Iraq. But suspicion and avarice led him to persecute the Persian people as savagely as any foreign conqueror had done. The Sword of Persia recreates the story of a remarkable, ruthless man, capable of both charm and brutality, who became a monster of insane cruelty. It is a rich narrative, full of dramatic incident, including much new research into original Iranian and other material, which will prove indispensable to historians and students. ‘The best biography of the year...a superb introduction to Iran itself...not just a beautifully-written compelling work but one that is also utterly relevant today.’ Simon Sebag Montefiore ‘a very successful [biography]. Michael Axworthy knows his Persia...and he writes well: this is an excellent story, very ably told.’ David Morgan, Times Literary Supplement
