If the conscious mind—the part you consider to be you—is just the tip of the iceberg, what is the rest doing? In this sparkling and provocative new book, the renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman navigates the depths of the subconscious brain to illuminate surprising mysteries: Why can your foot move halfway to the brake pedal before you become consciously aware of danger ahead? Why do you hear your name being mentioned in a conversation that you didn’t think you were listening to? What do Ulysses and the credit crunch have in common? Why did Thomas Edison electrocute an elephant in 1916? Why are people whose names begin with J more likely to marry other people whose names begin with J? Why is it so difficult to keep a secret?

In two previous books, Janet Malcolm explored the hidden sides of, respectively, institutional psychoanalysis and Freudian biography. In this book, she examines the psychopathology of journalism. Using a strange and unprecedented lawsuit as her larger-­than-­life example -- the lawsuit of Jeffrey MacDonald, a convicted murderer, against Joe McGinniss, the author of Fatal Vision, a book about the crime -- she delves into the always uneasy, sometimes tragic relationship that exists between journalist and subject. In Malcolm's view, neither journalist nor subject can avoid the moral impasse that is built into the journalistic situation. When the text first appeared, as a two-­part article in The New Yorker, its thesis seemed so radical and its irony so pitiless that journalists across the country reacted as if stung.

Her book is a work of journalism as well as an essay on journalism: it at once exemplifies and dissects its subject. In her interviews with the leading and...

Nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges wurde mithilfe der Europäischen Gemeinschaften versucht, Europa nachhaltig zu befrieden. Die zunächst rein wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit zwischen den Staaten sollte einer Entfremdung und so langfristig auch politischen Konflikten vorbeugen. In diesem Sinne sprachen damals u. a. Regierungsoberhäupter wie Winston Churchill und Konrad Adenauer in Anlehnung an die USA von den „Vereinigten Staaten von Europa“. Ihnen ging es also maßgeblich um die langfristige Verwirklichung eines europäischen Bundesstaates. Es gab eine politische Vision von einem „vereinten Europa“, die sich auch im Grundgesetz der Bundesrepublik Deutschland in der Präambel desselben manifestierte. In diesem Sinne begann eine Entwicklung der Europäischen Gemeinschaften, später der Europäischen Union, die zur Folge hatte, dass sich aus der reinen Wirtschaftsunion auch eine politische Union entwickelte, deren Rechtsnatur nicht der herkömmlicher internationaler Organisationen . . .

From the moment John Roberts, the chief justice of the United States, blundered through the Oath of Office at Barack Obama's inauguration, the relationship between the Supreme Court and the White House has been confrontational. Both men are young, brilliant, charismatic, charming, determined to change the course of the nation—and completely at odds on almost every major constitutional issue. One is radical; one essentially conservative. The surprise is that Obama is the conservative—a believer in incremental change, compromise, and pragmatism over ideology. Roberts—and his allies on the Court—seek to overturn decades of precedent: in short, to undo the ultimate victory FDR achieved in the New Deal. This ideological war will crescendo during the 2011-­2012 term, in which several landmark cases are on the Court's docket—most crucially, a challenge to Obama's controversial health-­care legislation. With four new justices joining the Court in just five years, including Obama's . . .

Dwyer defies those who would abolish our jury system and hand over its power to judges or to panels of "experts.­" He aims, by making his readers aware of what should be done, to help us save what he calls "America's most democratic institution.­"In an overview of litigation's universe, Dwyer goes back several centuries to describe the often terrifying ways our ancestors arrived at verdicts of guilt or innocence. Tracing the evolution of our present-­day system, he gives us excerpts from the actual records of such trials as that of young William Penn, arrested for preaching Quaker beliefs in public; the Salem witch trials; and the landmark civil rights trial of 18th century newspaper publisher John Peter Zenger, whose attorney was the original "Philadelphia lawyer.­" Along with these famous courtroom . . .
