  • <p>In this fascinating book about religion in America, one of this country's most probing yet sympathetic journalists puts forth stories not only of real grace but of despair, sexual scandal, and attempted murder.</p> <p>Lawrence Wright's Saints and Sinners are Jimmy Swaggart, who preached a hellfire gospel with rock 'n' roll abandon before he was caught with a, prostitute in a seedy motel; Anton LaVey, the kitsch-loving, gleefully fraudulent founder of the First Church of Satan; Madalyn Murray O'Hair, whose litigious atheism sometimes resembled a brand of faith; Matthew Fox, the Dominican priest who has aroused the fury of the Vatican for dismissing the doctrine of original sin and denouncing the church as a dysfunctional family; Walker Railey, the rising star of Dallas's Methodist church, who, at the pinnacle of his success, was suspected of attempting to murder his wife; and Will Campbell, the eccentric liberal Southern Baptist preacher whose challenges to established ways ...

In Deutschland wird die Organisation vom Verfassungsschutz beobachtet. Was aber macht Scientology immer wieder attraktiv f?r Menschen auch in Deutschland? Warum hat Scientology so gro?e Anziehungskraft gerade auf Hollywood?</p> <p>In seinem neuen Buch begibt sich der Pulitzer-Preistr?ger Lawrence Wright (≫Der Tod wird euch finden≪ ?ber Al-Qaida) in das Herz von Scientology. Nach jahrelangen Recherchen im Umfeld der Organisation schildert er ihre Gr?ndung durch den Science-Fiction-Autor L.

Seine Gespr?che mit dem Filmregisseur und Ex-Mitglied Paul Haggis verschafften Wright tiefe Einblicke in die auff?llig enge Beziehung gerade von Filmschaffenden ? unter ihnen etwa Tom Cruise...

  • <p><strong>Summary of The Terror Years by Lawrence Wright | Includes Analysis</strong></p> <p>?</p> <p><strong>Preview</strong>:</p> <p>?</p> <p>Lawrence Wright’s <em>The Terror Years: From Al-Qaeda to the Islamic State</em> is a collection of Wright’s essays from <em>The New Yorker</em> and other venues about radical Islamic terror in the 2000s.</p> <p>Terrorist activities are shaped by the experiences, ideology, and choices of terrorist leaders. The wave of international terrorism in the 1990s and 2000s came about in part because of the partnership of Osama bin Laden, a wealthy Saudi, and Ayman al-Zawahiri, an Egyptian surgeon. Al-Qaeda’s increased brutality and its escalating attacks on Muslims were the result of the rise in influence of convicted Jordanian criminal Musab al-Zarqawi, who gained control of al-Qaeda operations in Iraq. Conversely, when Sayyed Imam Al-Sharif, also known as Dr. Fadl, an important Egyptian theorist of violent terr...

  • <p>**A dramatic, illuminating day-by-day account of the 1978 Camp David conference, when President Jimmy Carter convinced Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat to sign a peace treaty--the first treaty in the modern Middle East, and one which endures to this day.<br /> ?**<br /> With his hallmark insight into the forces at play in the Middle East and his acclaimed journalistic skill, Lawrence Wright takes us through each of the thirteen days of the Camp David conference, delving deeply into the issues and enmities between the two nations, explaining the relevant background to the conflict and to all the major participants at the conference, from the three heads of state to their mostly well-known seconds working furiously behind the scenes. What emerges is not what we've come to think of as an unprecedented yet "simple" peace. Rather, Wright reveals the full extent of Carter's persistence in pushing peace forward, the extraordinary w...

  • <p>In 1902 Susan Lawrence commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to "remodel" her deceased father's home in Springfield, Illinois. The project grew and became a blonde Roman brick mansion with 35 rooms on 16 different levels. An anomaly in Springfield, the house is a masterpiece that still stands today as one of Wright's finest Prairie designs. Now called the Dana-Thomas House, it is an Illinois State Historic Site that has been visited by thousands. The woman behind the project, Susan Lawrence, lived during a period in history when women were finding their voices and carving out new places in society. As the world changed around her, she assumed several names and played many roles. She entertained lavishly, traveled the world, championed the rights of women and African-Americans, shared her time and money, and led seekers of spiritual truths. With over 50 images, this book captures Susan Lawrence's complex and independent lifestyle that matched the home Frank Lloyd Wright...

  • <p><strong>From acclaimed historian Lawrence Goldstone comes a thrilling narrative of courage, determination, and competition: the story of the intense rivalry that fueled the rise of American aviation.</strong><br /> **?**<br /> The feud between this nation’s great air pioneers, the Wright brothers and Glenn Curtiss, was a collision of unyielding and profoundly American personalities. On one side, a pair of tenacious siblings who together had solved the centuries-old riddle of powered, heavier-than-air flight. On the other, an audacious motorcycle racer whose innovative aircraft became synonymous in the public mind with death-defying stunts. For more than a decade, they battled each other in court, at air shows, and in the newspapers. The outcome of this contest of wills would shape the course of aviation historyーand take a fearsome toll on the men involved.<br /> *?*<br /> <em>Birdmen</em> sets the engrossing story of the Wrights’ war with Curtiss against the th...

  • Summary of Going Clear: By Lawrence Wright - Includes AnalysisSummary of Going Clear by Lawrence Wright - Includes Analysis Preview: Going Clear by Lawrence Wright is an in-depth examination of the founding, principles, and scandals of Scientology using eyewitness interviews and original document research. The Church of Scientology was founded with the publication of the book Dianetics in 1950 by science fiction author L. Ron Hubbard. His unique approach to mental health attracted a following, and after he founded the Church of Scientology in 1954 to continue spreading the message of Dianetics, he established a seafaring ministry and sought a permanent base for the church. They established the church in Clearwater, Florida in 1975. From there it became famous for the church's secretive beliefs. Given the high level of skepticism from journalists and the US government, Hubbard spent much of his time hiding or on the run with his earnings from the church until he died in 1986. The chu...

  • <p>In 1988 Ericka and Julie Ingram began making a series of accusations of sexual abuse against their father, Paul Ingram, who was a respected deputy sheriff in Olympia, Washington. At first the accusations were confined to molestations in their childhood, but they grew to include torture and rape as recently as the month before. At a time when reported incidents of "recovered memories" had become widespread, these accusations were not unusual. What captured national attention in this case is that, under questioning, Ingram appeared to remember participating in bizarre satanic rites involving his whole family and other members of the sheriff's department.</p> <p>Remembering Satan is a lucid, measured, yet absolutely riveting inquest into a case that destroyed a family, engulfed a small town, and captivated an America obsessed by rumors of a satanic underground. As it follows the increasingly bizarre accusations and confessions, the claims and counterclaims of police,...

  • <p>In dreizehn fesselnden Kapiteln zeichnet der Pulitzer-Preistr?ger Lawrence Wright eine der Sternstunden der Diplomatie nach. Leicht war es nicht f?r die drei gro?en Staatslenker: Mal schrien sie sich an, mal wollten sie einfach nur noch gehen. Doch sie blieben: Menachem Begin, der orthodoxe Jude, dessen Eltern im Holocaust umgekommen waren, Anwar el Sadat, der fromme Muslim, und Jimmy Carter, der die Bibel auswendig kannte. Am 17. September 1978 unterschrieben sie den Friedensplan. Doch was hatte sie, die lebenslangen Feinde, veranlasst, sich schlie?lich doch zu vertrauen? Wright, der erstmals Zugang zu geheimen CIA-Quellen und Akten des US-Pr?sidenten erhielt, erz?hlt einf?hlsam, wie br?chig die Verhandlungen am Anfang waren und wie das politische Geschick und die eigene Biographie der drei au?ergew?hnlichen Pers?nlichkeiten diesem Frieden Halt und Zukunft zu geben vermochten - bis heute. Ein Buch, das auf eindrucksvolle Weise zeigt: Frieden ist m?glich im Heiligen Land!</p>...
