Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast
Jonathan Safran Foer - 2019-09-17
Рейтинг Goodreads
Каждый день, что мы провели на Земле, вел к настоящему моменту. Технический прогресс, промышленная революция, формирование потребительского общества - все это вызвало изменения климата, которые теперь угрожают нашей жизни. Через призму собственного опыта — и масштабного опыта всего человечества — Джонатан Сафран Фоер смотрит на современный мир и побуждает открыть глаза вместе с ним. «Погода — это мы» — пронзительный, громкий, автобиографичный роман. Он столь же о личности, сколь и о коллективной силе людей. Ведь на самом деле если наше пребывание вызвало настолько страшные последствия, то стоит лишь пожелать — и одно слаженное усилие станет шагом к их устранению. Фоер уверен: спасти планету под силу каждому из нас. Что мы предпримем ради лучшего будущего?

#MeToo book cover
Расследование, уничтожившее Харви Вайнштейна
Jodi Kantor - 2019-09-10
Рейтинг Goodreads
В 2017 году в "Нью-Йорк таймс" вышла статья о продюсере Харви Вайнштейне, в которой освещались систематические случаи выплат денег жертвам его сексуальных домогательств. Статья произвела эффект разорвавшейся бомбы — десятки голливудских актрис и других сотрудниц киностудии "Мирамакс" начали говорить открыто о случаях харассмента. Расследование положило начало движению #MeToo: Америка, а за ней и весь мир, осознала, что харассмент — глобальная проблема, пронизывающая все сферы общества, а Вайнштейн, который еще вчера был самым влиятельным человеком Голливуда, был приговорён к 23 годам тюремного заключения. Журналистки Джоди Кантор и Меган Тухи, написавшие сенсационную статью, рассказывают, как проходило их расследование. Как выявлялись случаи домогательств, положившие конец карьере многих женщин; как тяжело было уговорить голливудских актрис поделиться своей историей; и как Вайнштейн саботировал их работу, нанимая юристов и шпионов. Почти детективная, эта книга мгновенно стала образцом безупречного журналистского расследования и изменила ход современной истории.
