Het pauperparadijs – Suzanna Jansen

Gepost op 31 augustus 2012 – 17:55 in: Betaalde iPad boeken

Amsterdam-Noord tijdens de crisisjaren: Roza Dingemans, moeder van een door schulden en alcoholisme getroffen gezin, probeert koste wat kost haar waardigheid te bewaren. Ze ontleent onvermoede trots aan een gerucht over een voorname afkomst en een misgelopen erfenis. Maar is dat mythe, of werkelijkheid? Op zoek naar de feiten stuit haar kleindochter, de auteur, op een verborgen stuk Nederlandse geschiedenis: haar voorouders blijken te zijn blootgesteld aan een uniek heropvoedingsexperiment in de Drentse nederzetting Veenhuizen. In drie enorme kazernes werden daar vanaf 1823 tienduizenden arme stadsgezinnen door tucht en landarbeid gedrild tot nuttige burgers. Maar wat begon als een bevlogen project om de armoede in Nederland in twaalf jaar uit te roeien, veranderde al snel in een fuik voor de paupers. In een betrokken, beeldende stijl volgt Suzanna Jansen vijf generaties van haar familie langs alle goedbedoelde pogingen om de onderklasse te verheffen. Van Veenhuizen, via het beschavingsoffensief van de gegoede dames, naar de moderne arbeiderswijken begin twintigste eeuw waar het volk het beschaafde wonen krijgt aangeleerd. Gaanderweg tekent zich af hoe deze opvoedcampagnes ingrijpen op het leven van Roza Dingemans en haar voorouders. En hoe de erfenis ervan generaties lang doorwerkt.

#thaistory – Andrew MacGregor Marshall

Gepost op 31 augustus 2012 – 13:20 in: Gratis iPad boeken

On June 3, 2011, Andrew MacGregor Marshall resigned from Reuters after 17 years as an international correspondent when the news agency refused to publish his exclusive analysis of Thailand’s monarchy based on thousands of leaked U.S. cables.  This is the story that Reuters refused to run. "Perhaps the biggest bombshell of reportage on Thailand in decades," Joshua Kurlantzick, Southeast Asia fellow, Council on Foreign Relations "Our understanding of the King Lear element in the Thai agony has been vastly illuminated by the WikiLeaks masterwork being produced by the former Reuters journalist Andrew MacGregor Marshall… The result is journalism of the highest order.” – Graeme Dobell, Lowy Institute for International Policy

Pray (Penguin Specials) – Nick Hornby

Gepost op 31 augustus 2012 – 01:42 in: Betaalde iPad boeken

‘That is why there is NOTHING better than sport’ Kevin Pietersen The 2011-12 Premier League season finished on an afternoon so extraordinary that it prompted Kevin Pietersen’s tweet. Yet this was just the climax of an incredible season. By May fans of most clubs had been enthralled, appalled, depressed, elated, shocked and enraged. Along the way football had somehow managed to encompass politics, high finance, the law and matters of life and death. In Pray Nick Hornby, author of the classic Fever Pitch , offers an entertaining and typically insightful account of this most extraordinary of seasons. Beginning with the weekend of 28 August when the Man Utd demolition of Arsenal 8-2 and the Man City demolition of Spurs 5-1 showed what was to come, he concentrates on a number of games whose significance went beyond the immediate result: the October games with alleged rascist incidents, the fairy-tale return of Thierry Henry, the collapse of Fabrice Muamba, the Carling Cup Final where Liverpool’s victory only served to point up the club’s problems, the unusual (but increasingly more common) 4-4 draw between Man Utd and Everton… It was a season of tumultuous incident and enormous entertainment, a season more glorious than most. Read all about it, and relive it, here.
