The Putin interviews : Oliver Stone interviews Vladimir Putin by Oliver Stone( Recording )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Academy Award winner Oliver Stone was able to secure what journalists, news organizations, and even otherworld leaders have long coveted: extended, unprecedented access to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Putin Interviews are culled from more than a dozen interviews with Putin over a two-year span-never before has the Russian leader spoken in such depth or at such length with a Western interviewer. No topics are off limits in the interviews, which first occurred during Stone's trips to meet with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in Moscow and most recently after the election of President Donald Trump. Prodded by Stone, Putin discusses relations between the United States and Russia, allegations of interference in the US election, and Russia's involvement with conflicts in Syria, Ukraine, and elsewhere across the globe. Putin speaks about his rise to power and details his relationships with Presidents Clinton, George W. Bush, Obama, and Trump. The exchanges are personal, provoc

Private citizens : a novel by Tony Tulathimutte( Recording )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Capturing the anxious, self-aware mood of young college grads in the aughts, Private Citizens embraces the contradictions of our new century: call it a loving satire. A gleefully rude comedy of manners. The story's four whip-smart narrators-idealistic Cory, Internet-lurking Will, awkward Henrik, and vicious Linda - are torn between fixing the world and cannibalizing it. In boisterous prose that ricochets between humor and pain, the four estranged friends stagger through the Bay Area's maze of tech startups, protestors, gentrifiers, karaoke bars, house parties, and cultish self-help seminars, washing up in each other's lives once again

The mystery of the lone wolf killer : Anders Behring Breivik and the threat of terror in plain sight by Unni Turrettini( )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

July 22, 2011 was the darkest day in Norway's history since Nazi Germany's invasion. It was one hundred eighty-nine minutes of terror, from the moment the bomb exploded outside a government building until Anders Behring Breivik was apprehended by the police at Utoya Island. Breivik murdered seventy-seven people, most of them teenagers and young adults, and wounded hundreds more. Breivik is a 'lone wolf killer,' often overlooked until they commit their crime. Breivik is also unique as he is the only 'lone wolf' killer in recent history to still be alive and in captivity. Unparalleled research and a unique international perspective. The Mystery of the Lone Wolf Killer examines the massacre itself and why this lone-killer phenomenon is increasing worldwide. Based on true events

Without ever giving a reason for his transformation, Kafka tells an intriguing tale of one man's thoughts throughout a trying time
Lucky jim by James Hart( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Jim Hart's story: how he survived a violent childhood home, how he overcame obsessive dependencies, and how he finally found the strength to be his true self. A master at building relationships, Jim is charming, funny, and a great listener. His success in life and business was based on his ability to connect with others, from people recovering in 12-step groups in Upstate New York to those living in the rarefied air of Martha's Vineyard. But after more than twenty years of being sober, one slip-up triggered an active addiction that threatened his relationships with his then-wife, singer-songwriter Carly Simon, his recovery friends, his severely disabled son, and, as he began to confront his own sexuality, even with himself. With profound clarity and thoughtful language, Jim weaves together the beautiful and all-too-often heartbreaking events of his life into an inspiring tale of bravery, healing, and above all, love

The full catastrophe : travels among the new Greek ruins by James Angelos( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, small Greece, often associated with ancient philosophers and marble ruins, whitewashed villages and cerulean seas, has been at the center of a debt crisis that has sown economic and social ruin, spurred panic in international markets, and tested Europe's decades-old project of forging a closer union. In The Full Catastrophe, James Angelos makes sense of contrasting images of Greece, a nation both romanticized for its classical past and castigated for its dysfunctional present. It goes beyond the transient coverage in the daily headlines to deliver an enduring and absorbing portrait of modern Greece
