    THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERTwo long-time friends share an intimate and urgent conversation about life, music and their enduring love of America, with all its challenges and contradictions, in this stunningly-produced expansion of their ground-breaking Higher Ground podcast, featuring more than 350 photographs, exclusive bonus content, and never-before-seen archival material.Renegades: Born in the USA is a candid, revealing, and entertaining dialogue between President Barack Obama and legendary musician Bruce Springsteen that explores everything from their origin stories and career-defining moments to their country's polarized politics and the growing distance between the American Dream and the American reality. Filled with full-colour photographs and rare archival material, it is a compelling and beautifully illustrated portrait of two outsiders-one Black and one white-looking for a way to connect their unconventional searches for meaning, identity, and community with the American story itself. It includes: Original introductions by President Obama and Bruce Springsteen Exclusive new material from the Renegades podcast recording sessions Obama's never-before-seen annotated speeches, including his "e;Remarks at the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery Marches Springsteen's handwritten lyrics for songs spanning his 50-year-long career Rare and exclusive photographs from the authors' personal archives Historical photographs and documents that provide rich visual context for their conversation. In a recording studio stocked with dozens of guitars, and on at least one Corvette ride, Obama and Springsteen discuss marriage and fatherhood, race and masculinity, the lure of the open road and the call back to home. They also compare notes on their favourite protest songs, the most inspiring American heroes of all time, and more. Along the way, they reveal their passion for-and the occasional toll of-telling a bigger, truer story about America throughout their careers, and explore how their fractured country might begin to find its way back toward unity.

    av Paul McCartney

    THE SUNDAY TIMES BOOK OF THE YEARWinner of Non-Fiction Book of the Year, British Book Awards (Nibbies), 2022A self-portrait in 154 songs, by our greatest living songwriter'More often than I can count, I've been asked if I would write an autobiography, but the time has never been right. The one thing I've always managed to do, whether at home or on the road, is to write new songs. I know that some people, when they get to a certain age, like to go to a diary to recall day-to-day events from the past, but I have no such notebooks. What I do have are my songs, hundreds of them, which I've learned serve much the same purpose. And these songs span my entire life.' In this extraordinary book, with unparalleled candour, Paul McCartney recounts his life and art through the prism of 154 songs from all stages of his career - from his earliest boyhood compositions through the legendary decade of The Beatles, to Wings and his solo albums to the present. Arranged alphabetically to provide a kaleidoscopic rather than chronological account, it establishes definitive texts of the songs' lyrics for the first time and describes the circumstances in which they were written, the people and places that inspired them, and what he thinks of them now. Presented with this is a treasure trove of material from McCartney's personal archive - drafts, letters, photographs - never seen before, which make this also a unique visual record of one of the greatest songwriters of all time. We learn intimately about the man, the creative process, the working out of melodies, the moments of inspiration. The voice and personality of Paul McCartney sings off every page. There has never been a book about a great musician like it.Each volume is 480 pp, not available separately

Bøker om samfunnet

Et samfunn er et fellesskap av individer, og det har endret seg mye gjennom historien. Samfunnet vi har levd i har hatt mange forskjellige faser, noe som har gjort vårt store utvalg til en nødvendighet ettersom vi ønsker å gi alle en bok de synes er spennende. Hvis du er interessert i de konkrete samfunnene som har vært her gjennom tidene, kan du finne bøker om alt fra det tradisjonelle, det moderne og det senmoderne samfunnet til det humanistiske samfunnet.
Her kan du for eksempel lese om de sosiale, økonomiske og kulturelle forholdene mellom befolkningen, ettersom det har vært store svingninger over tid. For eksempel, hvis du er interessert i kvekere, kan en bok som “Vennenes samfunn Kvekerne: 1846-1898” av Ernst Lapin være en spennende bok å lese. En fascinerende historie om kvekernes fortid, nåtid og fremtid. Ellers vil du kanskje finne boken "Society without God" av Phil Zuckerman interessant? Boken tar for seg mange spørsmål om hvordan samfunnet vårt kan fungere når Norge tror mye mindre på Gud enn resten av verden. Vi har en bok for alle.

På finner du derfor et stort utvalg av norske og utenlandske bøker, som gir et innblikk i hvordan historien har påvirket den verden vi lever i i dag, samt hvilke vanskelige samfunn mennesker har vært gjennom før og selvfølgelig hvilken innflytelse den har hatt på oss i dag.
