Обложка книги King of Russia.Один год в российской Суперлиге King of Russia.Один год в российской Суперлиге

 Автор: Кинг Дэйв, Духачек Эрик


Дэйв Кинг девять лет был тренером национальной хоккейной сборной Канады. Он готовил команду к трем Олимпиадам, и она завоевала серебряные медали в Альбервиле в 1992 году. Позже тренировал команды НХЛ Калгари Флэймз и Коламбус Блю Джэкетс и был помощником тренера в Монреаль Канадиенз. Он принял предложение работать с ведущей командой Финляндии ХИФК, прежде чем Магнитогорск начал переманивать его к себе в Металлург. Эта книга - дневник первого тренера из Канады, попавшего в недра российской хоккейной Суперлиги. Это необычайно пристальный и ироничный взгляд изнутри на жизнь ключевых игроков, владельцев команд, менеджеров и болельщиков.

Обложка книги Kid Gloves: A Voyage Round My Father Kid Gloves: A Voyage Round My Father

 Автор: Mars-Jones Adam


When his widowed father — once a high court judge and always a formidable figure — drifted into vagueness if not dementia, the writer Adam Mars-Jones took responsibility for his care. Intimately trapped in the London flat where the family had always lived, the two men entered an oblique new stage in their relationship.

In the aftermath of an unlooked-for intimacy, Mars-Jones has written a book devoted to particular emotions and events. Kid Gloves is a highly entertaining book about (among other things) families, the legal profession, and the vexed question of Welsh identity. It is necessarily also a book about the writer himself — and the implausible, long-delayed moment, some years before, when he told his sexually conservative father about his own orientation, taking the homophobic bull by the horns. The supporting cast includes Ian Fleming, the Moors Murderers, Jacqueline Bisset and Gilbert O'Sullivan, the singer-songwriter whose trademark look kept long shorts from their rightful place on the fashion pages for so many years.

Обложка книги Kursk Kursk

 Автор: Moore Robert


The acclaimed and harrowing story of the fate of Russia’s most powerful submarine – now with new material from the author.

At 11.28 a.m. on Saturday, 12 August 2000, a massive and mysterious blast punched through the shallow Arctic waters of the Barents Sea. 135 seconds later, another colossal explosion was detected by seismologists around the globe. The Kursk, pride of Russia’s Northern Fleet and the largest attack submarine in the world, was plunging to the ocean floor, fatally wounded.

In Kursk, award-winning television journalist Robert Moore vividly recreates this disaster minute by minute. Venturing into a covert world where the Cold War continues out of sight, Moore investigates the military and political background to the tragedy. But above all, he tells the nail-bitingly poignant human story of the families waiting on shore, of the desperate efforts of the British, Norwegian and Russian rescuers, and of the twenty-three sailors, trapped in the aft compartment of the stricken submarine, waiting for rescue, as a horrified world followed their fight to stay alive…

‘It takes you through each nail biting moment, willing it to turn out differently. Heartbreaking, humane and, at times, all too vivid. I’ve rarely read such a gripping work of non-fiction’

Colin Firth

‘The Kursk was once the pride of the Russian navy and a symbol of state power… her story, harrowingly detailed… stands as a testament to the bravery and loyalty of men to a nation that failed them’

Orlando Figes, The Times

A revised and updated edition of the book previously published as A TIME TO DIE.

Обложка книги Klaus Fuchs Klaus Fuchs

 Автор: Moss Norman


‘Moss went to great pains to study all the documents relating to Fuchs and interviewed everyone who had contact with him. His spy thriller is better than fiction.’

London Review of Books

German-born Klaus Fuchs escaped the Nazi regime in 1933 and sought refuge in Britain.

Regarded as a genius, the introverted physics student hid his communist beliefs from his peers.

The scientist’s brilliance led to his recruitment, by the British, to develop the secret atom bomb project. At this point, Fuchs turned spy and began to pass on nuclear research secrets to the Soviet Regime.

As time passed, the refugee’s sense of loyalty to his friends and Britain led to him to doubt his actions and he reported less information to Russia.

The British arrested Fuchs in 1950, after the FBI had decoded his Soviet messages. In August 1988, the Russians acknowledged for the first time the key role that Fuchs played in the building of their first atomic bomb.

Norman Moss gives detailed insight into Fuchs’ extraordinary story, examining his role in the most momentous historical development of this century, his contacts with the Soviet intelligence apparatus, his friendships, the twists and turns of his mind and conscience, and the intelligence work that led to his arrest.

Fuchs’s dilemmas reflect some of the fundamental moral and political conflicts of our time.

Recommended for fans of Ben Macintyre and .

Обложка книги Kampējs Kampējs

 Автор: Lapsa Lato, čevska K


Mūsuprāt, šīs grāmatas mērķis nav kādam pielaikot strīpainu pidžamiņu. Šīs grāmatas mērķis ir uzskatāmi parādīt, ko ar cilvēku var izdarīt nepārvarama tieksme pēc naudas un varas.

Kampt, kampt un kampt. Vēl, vēl, vēl un vēl. Īpaši neaizraujoties ar domām par citiem cilvēkiem. Vai valsti. Vai ko citu.

Ak, jā, dažiem būtiskāk var šķist tas, ka šī grāmata mēģina dot atbildi uz jautājumu — kādā veidā gan vienam cilvēkam izdevās to visu pakampt? Protams, ja viņš tiešām bija viens...

Обложка книги Koba the Dread Koba the Dread

 Автор: AMIS MARTIN


A brilliant weave of personal involvement, vivid biography and political insight, Koba the Dread is the successor to Martin Amis’s award-winning memoir, Experience.

Koba the Dread captures the appeal of one of the most powerful belief systems of the 20th century—one that spread through the world, both captivating it and staining it red. It addresses itself to the central lacuna of 20th-century thought: the indulgence of Communism by the intellectuals of the West. In between the personal beginnings and the personal ending, Amis gives us perhaps the best one-hundred pages ever written about Stalin: Koba the Dread, Iosif the Terrible.

The author’s father, Kingsley Amis, though later reactionary in tendency, was a “Comintern dogsbody” (as he would come to put it) from 1941 to 1956. His second-closest, and then his closest friend (after the death of the poet Philip Larkin), was Robert Conquest, our leading Sovietologist whose book of 1968, The Great Terror, was second only to Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago in undermining the USSR. The present memoir explores these connections.

Stalin said that the death of one person was tragic, the death of a million a mere “statistic.” Koba the Dread, during whose course the author absorbs a particular, a familial death, is a rebuttal of Stalin’s aphorism.

Обложка книги Keep Out!: Top Secret Places Governments Don't Want You to Know About Keep Out!: Top Secret Places Governments Don't Want You to Know About

 Автор: Redfern Nick


Area 51, Hangar 18, the Montauk facility, the Dulce Base, the undersea world of Sanya, HAARP in Alaska, Pine Gap, Fort Detrick, Rudloe Manor, and the Zhitkur underground realm-these are just a few of the select, highly classified installations about which the governments of the United States, Australia, China, Russia, the United Kingdom, and others prefer that we, the general public, remain steadfastly ignorant.

And these same governments have excellent reasons for wanting to keep us in the dark. It is at these secret facilities that for decades, clandestine research has reportedly been undertaken into crashed UFOs, deceased alien entities, bizarre creatures and unknown animals, lethal viruses, biological warfare, mind-control experimentation, and much, much more.

Whether situated deep under the ocean, far below the ground, or within the heart of remote, fortified desert locales, these and many other supersecret places are guarded with a near paranoid zeal by those in power who wish to keep their secrets buried and locked far away from prying eyes.

And they have succeeded.

Until now.

Обложка книги Kill Bin Laden Kill Bin Laden

 Автор: Fury Dalton


The mission was to kill the most wanted man in the world-an operation of such magnitude that it couldn't be handled by just any military or intelligence force. The best America had to offer was needed. As such, the task was handed to roughly forty members of America's supersecret counterterrorist unit formerly known as 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta; more popularly, the elite and mysterious unit Delta Force.

The American generals were flexible. A swatch of hair, a drop of blood, or simply a severed finger wrapped in plastic would be sufficient. Delta's orders were to go into harm's way and prove to the world bin Laden had been terminated.

These Delta warriors had help: a dozen of the British Queen's elite commandos, another dozen or so Army Green Berets, and six intelligence operatives from the CIA who laid the groundwork by providing cash, guns, bullets, intelligence, and interrogation skills to this clandestine military force. Together, this team waged modern siege of epic proportions against bin Laden and his seemingly impenetrable cave sanctuary burrowed deep inside the Spin Ghar Mountain range in eastern Afghanistan.

Over the years, since the battle ended, scores of news stories have surfaced offering tidbits of information about what actually happened in Tora Bora. Most of it is conjecture and speculation.

This is the real story of the operation, the first eyewitness account of the Battle of Tora Bora, and the first book to detail just how close Delta Force came to capturing bin Laden, how close U.S. bombers and fighter aircraft came to killing him, and exactly why he slipped through our fingers. Lastly, this is an extremely rare inside look at the shadowy world of Delta Force and a detailed account of these warriors in battle.
