Megan Phelps-roper - 2019-10-08
Рейтинг Goodreads
This gripping memoir delves into the life of an activist who grew up in the notorious Westboro Baptist Church. Phelps-Roper reveals her journey from a childhood of protesting against homosexuality and other alleged vices, to her eventual departure from the church and moral awakening. Through her story, readers are shown the dangers of black-and-white thinking and the need for true humility in a time of angry polarization.
Olivia Wilde
Cannot even begin to recommend this enough. If you don't know Megan's story, this will blow your mind. Even if you do already know about her profound capacity for love and courage and humility, this is well worth a read. Read it and then buy it for everyone since you know you haven't even started holiday gift shopping. It should honestly be required reading as we head into an election year. So moving. So good.      источник

Sat down in my plane seat, didn't feel take-off, 6 hours of flying, or landing. Unreal. Thank you, Tara Westover. Consider me educated.      источник

Сила book cover
Naomi Alderman - 2017-10-27 (впервые опубликовано в 2016)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Что бы произошло с миром, если бы женщины вдруг стали физически сильнее мужчин? Теперь мужчины являются слабым полом. И все меняется: представления о гендере, силе, слабости, правах, обязанностях и приличиях, структура власти и геополитические расклады. Эти перемены вместе со всем миром проживают проповедница новой религии, дочь лондонского бандита, нигерийский стрингер и американская чиновница с политическими амбициями – смену парадигмы они испытали на себе первыми. «Сила» Наоми Алдерман — «Рассказ Служанки» для новой эпохи, это остроумная и трезвая до жестокости история о том, как именно изменится мир, если гендерный баланс сил попросту перевернется с ног на голову. Грядут ли принципиальные перемены? Станет ли мир лучше? Это роман о природе власти и о том, что она делает с людьми, о природе насилия. Возможно ли изменить мир так, чтобы из него ушло насилие как таковое, или оно – составляющая природы homo sapiens? Роман получил премию Baileys Women’s Prize (премия присуждается авторам-женщинам).

Resisting Trump's Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need
Naomi Klein - 2017-06-13
Рейтинг Goodreads
An urgent and insightful book by a renowned journalist on how we got to this surreal political moment and what we can do to create a better future. Trump's reckless agenda, including a corporate coup in government and sweeping aside climate science, will generate disasters and shocks. Naomi Klein argues that Trump is not an aberration but a logical extension of dangerous trends that have unleashed a rising tide of white nationalism globally. We need more than resistance; we need a roadmap for a fair and caring world. A timely and inspiring call to action.
