Conquering the Borderlands

In terms of United States history, the Borderlands are the territories, from "Alta California" to "La Florida," that formed the northern frontier of Spain's New World empire. Conquering the Borderlands relates their histories, landscapes, and cultures as they unfolded during the author's Southern Tier bicycle journey from San Diego to St. Augustine. The Southern Tier route intersects the paths of Spanish conquistadors, stagecoach routes, and cattle drives, all of which come alive in the pages of this book. A ferry across the Mississippi evokes Mark Twain's account of life on the river; Louisiana's bayous recall Evangeline, Longfellow's poem about the Acadian exile from Canada. Curious javelinas emerge on West Texas roads, carnivorous plants alongside Deep South highways. On a personal level, the author describes the rigors of the trip and the anxieties that spring from attempting a cross-country ride nearly forty years after the goal first captured her imagination. The author coined the term "chronological borderlands" for that stage in life when professional and family responsibilities have been met, and deferred dreams spring to life with a renewed sense of possibility, coupled with apprehension that physical limits may be closing the door. The books is not intended to replace travel guides and maps, but to serve as a valuable companion piece that can further enrich the experience of Southern Tier travel - by bicycle, car or armchair.

Vom Bosporus bis in den Himalaja – zwei Frauen auf der Reise ihres Lebens. Schon als Teenager träumte Kate Harris davon, eine Entdeckerin zu werden und als Astronautin zum Mars zu fliegen. Doch während ihres Wissenschaftsstudiums strauchelt sie. Und gemeinsam mit ihrer Freundin Mel bricht sie auf, um die sagenumwobene Seidenstraße mit dem Fahrrad zu erkunden: von Istanbul aus entlang des Schwarzen Meers über den Kaukasus bis nach Tibet und Indien. Dabei taucht sie ein in eine Welt jenseits aller Grenzen, die so ungestüm ist wie sie selbst. Ein brillantes Buch über Sehnsüchte und Forscherdrang, über die unnatürliche politische Zerteilung der Welt und die Wildheit der Natur.

»Das ›1984‹ fürs Internetzeitalter« Zeit online Leben in der schönen neuen Welt des total transparenten Internets: Mit Der Circle hat Dave Eggers einen hellsichtigen, hochspannenden Roman über die Abgründe des gegenwärtigen Vernetzungswahns geschrieben. Ein beklemmender Pageturner, der weltweit Aufsehen erregt. Huxleys Schöne neue Welt reloaded: Die 24-jährige Mae Holland ist überglücklich. Sie hat einen Job ergattert in der hippsten Firma der Welt, beim »Circle«, einem freundlichen Internetkonzern mit Sitz in Kalifornien, der die Geschäftsfelder von Google, Apple, Facebook und Twitter geschluckt hat, indem er alle Kunden mit einer einzigen Internetidentität ausstattet, über die einfach alles abgewickelt werden kann. Mit dem Wegfall der Anonymität im Netz – so ein Ziel der »drei Weisen«, die den Konzern leiten – wird es keinen Schmutz mehr geben im Internet und auch keine Kriminalität. Mae stürzt sich voller Begeisterung in diese schöne neue Welt mit ihren lichtdurchfluteten Büros und High-Class-Restaurants, wo Sterneköche kostenlose Mahlzeiten für die Mitarbeiter kreieren, wo internationale Popstars Gratis-Konzerte geben und fast jeden Abend coole Partys gefeiert werden. Sie wird zur Vorzeigemitarbeiterin und treibt den Wahn, alles müsse transparent sein, auf die Spitze. Doch eine Begegnung mit einem mysteriösen Kollegen ändert alles ...Mit seinem neuen Roman Der Circle hat Dave Eggers ein packendes Buch über eine bestürzend nahe Zukunft geschrieben, einen Thriller, der uns ganz neu über die Bedeutung von Privatsphäre, Demokratie und Öffentlichkeit nachdenken und den Wunsch aufkommen lässt, die Welt und das Netz mögen uns bitte manchmal vergessen. »Ein brandaktueller Roman über unsere Gegenwart – wunderbar« FAZ »Eggers futuristischer Silicon-Valley-Horror ist kein Orwell’sches 2084, sondern eine der Wirklichkeit nur wenig vorauseilende, im Grunde ziemlich realistisch anmutende Vision.« NZZ
