The great great wallOrdinær pris 269,00 kr
During his campaign for the presidency, one of Donald Trump's signature promises was that hewould build a "great great wall" on the border between the US and Mexico, and Mexico wasgoing to pay for it. A year and a half into his term, with only a few prototype segments erected, thewall is the 2,000-mile, multibillion-dollar elephant in the room of contemporary American life. In The Great Great Wall, architectural historian and critic Ian Volner takes a deep dive into thestory of Trump's wall.
Volner follows the conception, selling, design, and construction (or lack thereof)of this expensive and consequential barrier, giving readers a detailed look at what's happening in Washington, DC, and along the border. He also travels far afield, to China, the Middle East, Northern England, and back to our border to examine the barriers we've been building for centuries. Why dowe build walls? What do they reveal about human history? The Great Great Wall is an absorbing, smart, and timely book on anincredibly contentious and newsworthy topic.

Usa - annerledeslandet i en ny tidOrdinær pris 349,00 kr
I sin nye bok analyserer professor Ole o. Moen usa slik verdens eneste supermakt nå fremstår under president Barack Hussein Obama - både I lys av vår samtid og usas særegne historiske tradisjoner. Presidentvalget I 28 var på flere vis begynnelsen på et nytt kapittel I usas moderne historie. Moen beskriver de nye trekk som nå avtegner seg I den politiske og kulturelle hverdag. Denne boken forteller historien om dette landet I en ny og annerledes tidsalder. Det er sterke bånd som knytter norge til usa. En naturlig konsekvens av dette er at de fleste nordmenn mener seg å kjenne usa. Onkel sam er en gammel kjenning, men vår generelle innsikt I amerikansk kultur og politikk er relativt overflatisk. Denne boken er et bidrag til en bedre forståelse av dagens amerikanske samfunn.
