From Jesus to Christianity
How Four Generations of Visionaries & Storytellers Created the New Testament and Christian Faith
L. Michael White - 2005-10-25 (впервые опубликовано в 2004)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Discover the astonishing story of how Christianity grew from the personal vision of a humble Jewish peasant living in a remote province of the Roman Empire into the largest organized religion in the world. L. Michael White, one of the world's foremost scholars on the origins of Christianity, provides a historical approach to uncover what we can know of Jesus and his early followers through layers of archaeological excavations, buried fragments of largely unknown texts, and historical sources. From Jesus to Christianity explores how early debates spurred the evolution of Christianity as we know it, diving into arguments over how to understand Jesus as both human and divine, the role of women in the church, the diversity of beliefs among Christian communities, Gnostic influences, and political disputes over which books would be included in the New Testament. With illustrations, photos, charts, and maps, this book presents the fullest picture yet of the beginnings of the most popular religion on earth.

Гёдель, Эшер, Бах
Эта бесконечная гирлянда
Douglas R. Hofstadter - 1999-01-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1979)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Не часто приходится держать в руках книгу, которая открывает новые миры, в которой сочетаются глубина мысли и блестящая языковая игра; книгу, которой удалось совместить ничем на первый взгляд не связанные сложные области знания. "Гедель, Эшер, Бах" - такая книга. Выдающийся американский ученый изобретает остроумные диалоги, обращается к знаменитым парадоксам пространства и времени, находит параллели между картинами Эшера, музыкой Баха и такими разными дисциплинами, как физика, математика, логика, биология, нейрофизиология, психология и дзенбуддизм. Автор размышляет над одной из величайших тайн современной науки: каким образом человеческое мышление пытается постичь самое себя. Хофштадтер приглашает в мир человеческого духа и `думающих` машин. Это путешествие тесно связано с классическими парадоксами, с революционными открытиями математика Курта Геделя, а также с возможностями языка, математических систем, компьютерных программ и предметного мира говорить о самих себе с помощью бесконечных отражений. Начав читать эту книгу, вы попадете в волшебные миры, отправитесь в путешествие, изобилующее увлекательными приключениями, путешествие, после которого вы по-иному взглянете на мир и на самого себя. Переведенная на 17 языков, книга потрясла мировое интеллектуальное сообщество и сразу стала бестселлером. Теперь и русский читатель получил доступ к одной из культовых книг XX века.

Smuggler Nation
How Illicit Trade Made America
Peter Andreas - 2013-02-14
Рейтинг Goodreads
Follow the history of America's contraband capitalism through illicit imports such as West Indies molasses, African slaves, French condoms, and more. In Smuggler Nation, Peter Andreas provides a fascinating and often-overlooked account of America's continuous engagement in smuggling from colonial times to the present. Despite being born and growing up through smuggling, the United States is now the world's leading anti-smuggling crusader. Andreas challenges the hyperbolic depictions of out-of-control borders and global crime threats, reminding readers that illicit trade is not a new concept but an old American tradition that has helped fuel the country's rise to become a world superpower.

It Was All a Lie
How the Republican Party Became Donald Trump
Stuart Stevens - 2020-08-04
Рейтинг Goodreads
A political insider reveals the truth about how the Republican Party lost its way. With decades of experience under his belt, the author exposes the hypocrisy, racism, and dishonesty at the heart of the modern GOP. This book is a candid and unflinching account of what he's seen firsthand, and he's not asking for pity or forgiveness. Instead, he wants to see the party he helped to create burned to the ground.
Chris Hayes
What I liked about @stuartpstevens book was that it was about so much more than Trump's personal awfulness and was the first attempt I've seen at a GOP/conservative "God That Failed" genre. Would really like to see more.      источник
