In 2007 Luke Harding arrived in Moscow to take up a new job as a correspondent for the British newspaper the Guardian. Within months, mysterious agents from Russia's Federal Security Service - the successor to the KGB - had broken into his flat. He found himself tailed by men in cheap leather jackets, bugged, and even summoned to Lefortovo, the KGB's notorious prison. The break-in was the beginning of an extraordinary psychological war against the journalist and his family. Vladimir Putin's spies used tactics developed by the KGB and perfected in the 1970s by the Stasi, East Germany's sinister secret police. This clandestine campaign burst into the open in 2011 when the Kremlin expelled Harding from Moscow - the first western reporter to be deported from Russia since the days of the Cold War. Mafia State: How one reporter became an enemy of the brutal new Russia is a brilliant and haunting account of the insidious methods used by a resurgent Kremlin against its so-called "enemies" - human rights workers, western diplomats, journalists and opposition activists. It includes unpublished material from confidential US diplomatic cables, released last year by WikiLeaks, which describe Russia as a "virtual mafia state". Harding gives a unique, personal and compelling portrait of today's Russia, two decades after the end of communism, that sounds like a spy thriller. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Luke Harding.

The new best-seller from the author of Zero Six Bravo. By 2007 Viktor Bout had become the world's foremost arms dealer. Known as the 'Merchant of Death' he was both "Public Enemy No. 1" to the global intelligence agencies and a ruthless criminal worth around six billion dollars. For years Bout had eluded capture, meanwhile building up a labyrinthine network of airlines selling weapons to order to dictators, rebels, despots and terror groups worldwide. He was hunted by the CIA, NSA, MI6, as well sought by the United Nations for being their top global sanctions buster. Holed up in Moscow - from where he ran a suite of offices selling anything from AK47s to state-of-the-art helicopter gunships and anti-aircraft missiles - he was shielded by a Russian state that was a partner in his dark dealings. In short, Bout appeared utterly invulnerable and beyond any hope of capture. Step forward former SAS man Mike Snow. After serving in the Regiment, Snow had worked as a bush pilot in Africa, where he'd got to know Bout well. Via its own secretive, shadow network, Snow was approached by the US DEA, the Drugs Enforcement Agency. The DEA agents had one question for him: was Snow able to get to Viktor Bout? This is the incredible tale of Operation Relentless, the top-secret mission that Snow and a handful of DEA operatives launched to entrap Viktor Bout - a story that ranges from the steamy jungles of Colombia to the ice-bound streets of Moscow, and from horrific bloodshed and tyranny in the Congo, to a snatch operation like no other. It may read like an implausible thriller, but every word of Operation Relentless is true. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Greg Wagland.

Lisboa Past & Present _ Photos, Text & Music Photobook + CD Lisbon, the city upon 7 hills ("sete collinas"); slightly run-down, melancholy with it's unique light, and it's relaxed atmosphere. These photos were taken between the years 1999 until 2015. The gloomy charm of this "City on the Tejo" fascinates travelers from around the world. This photobook of Ulrich Balss brings together, for the first time, literature, music and pictures on the subject. "Through my engagement as a music producer I have traveled often to Lisbon, where I've received specific tips and insights from among others, the musicians featured in the accompanying CD, which gives the whole a very personal touch." Ulrich Balss The focus of the book are the pavements, the ceramic-tiled "Azulejos", The electric streets cars ("Electrico") and the graffiti. These are, together with murals, scattered all over the city, often critical of capitalism. Renowned street artists flocked to Lisbon from around the globe in response to the city-initiated "Crono Project", which encouraged the graphic artists to spray their messages here. This inspired Ulrich Balss to use quotes from Pessoa's "The Anarchist Banker". Fernando Pessoa He is one of the most important poets and most significant authors of 20th century Portugal. He was born in Lisbon in 1888, grew up in Durban, S. Africa, and returned home at 17. Here he studied literary science, and later worked as a commercial agent. After more than two dozen changes of address, he finally rented a floor of the building at Rua Coelho da Rocha Nr. 16 in 1920, together with his mother and half-siblings. Here he passed the last 15 years of his life, though shortly after moving in, developed a deep depression. In addition to the "Anarchist Banker",(O Banqueiro Anarquista), which I've quoted in this book, there is his "Book of Disquietude" (Livro Do Desassossego), perhaps his most important work. He died in 1935 here in his home-town. The Anarchist Banker /O Banqueiro Anarquista, 1922. The Music: Dona Rosa Rosa Francelina Dias Martins was born in 1957 in Lisboa in a very poor family. At the age of four a case of meningitis caused her complete blindness. She lived in Lisboa up to the age of 20 when she was send back to her family in Northern Portugal. But knowing that her family could not accept here blindness she took the first train back to Lisbon instead of the bus to her family. Back in Lisbon she was supported by beggar companions and started to sell magazines and lottery in the streets to survive. As she loved to sing someone suggested that she should do this to earn her money instead of selling magazines. She started to do so with enough success to survive under poor conditions. Later she received a triangle and added the instrument to accompany her singing. As a street musician she was discoved by the Austrian multimedia artist André Heller in the streets of her hometown. He invited her to an international TV production for the Austrian State TV station ORF entitled "Voices of God" with international artists like the Sabri Brothers, Black Umfolosi and the Bulgarians Voices ANGELITE. JARO discovered her talent during the production in Marakesh, Morocco, in May 1999. Subsequently recording sessions were made in Lisbon. Dona Rosa's first CD "histórias da rua" was presented in JARO's VOICES Series in the fall of 2000. Second album "Segredos" was released summer 2003 with excellent reviews. Meanwhile Dona Rosa and her trio did performances in 12 European countries with more than 200 concerts from club stages to prestigious classical music halls. For 2004 are scheduled international concerts in Moscow, Istanbul, Italy, Greece, Spain, Germany, Taiwan, England.
