    "Som liten ville jeg bli indianer eller jøde. Historien til begge disse folkene fascinerte en ung jente på ti år som leste tegneserien om Sølvpilen og Månestråle og som bladde storøyd i farmors Bibel. Snart fant jeg ut at indianerne levde i reservater, mens jødene, de hadde sitt eget land. Dit ville jeg dra bare jeg ble stor nok." Da Sidsel Wold var 19 år reiste hun ut og bodde på kibbutz i Israel. Hun forelsket seg i landet og folket og ville selv konvertere til jødedommen. Tilbake i Oslo arbeidet hun i flere år for å få frem Israels side i konflikten, men gradvis ble det vanskeligere å forsvare statens handlinger. Landet utviklet seg til å bli noe helt annet enn det de idealistiske sionistene og pionerene hadde drømt om før 1948. I dag styres Israel av politikere fra høyresiden - religiøse og nasjonalistiske partier som ikke har vilje eller evne til å forhandle om fred med palestinerne. Landet som lovet alt handler om Israels historie og tar for seg statens indre problemer og utfordringer. Boken er også Wolds personlige beretning om sine erfaringer og møter med mennesker som forandret henne - en personlig reise fra kibbutzen til et liv som korrespondent i Midt-Østen. Sidsel Wold (f. 1959) er forfatter og journalist i NRK med lang erfaring fra Midt-Østen generelt og Israel spesielt, hvor hun har bodd i flere år. Hun har mottatt Ossietzky-prisen for sitt arbeid.

    Mein Kampf (German: My Struggle) is a 1925 autobiographical Manifesto of Adolf Hitler, the Nazi Leader. The work outlines Hitlers political ideology and future plans for Germany. Hitler began the book while imprisoned for what he considered to be political crimes following his failed Putsch in Munich in November 1923. Although Hitler received many visitors initially, he soon devoted himself entirely to the book. As he continued, Hitler realized that it would have to be a two-volume work, with the first volume covering world of Hitler's youth, the First World War, and the ';betrayal' of Germany's collapse in 1918; it also expresses His racist political ideology and future plans for Germany. The second volume, written after His release from prison in December 1924, outlines the political program, including the terrorist methods that National Socialism must pursue both in gaining power and in exercising it thereafter in the new Germany.
