America and Iran: A History, 1720 to the Present Audiobook

America and Iran: A History, 1720 to the Present

Author: John Ghazvinian Narrator: Jeff Harding Release Date: October 2020

In this rich, fascinating history, John Ghazvinian traces the complex story of the relations of these two powers back to the Persian Empire of the eighteenth century--the subject of great admiration of Thomas Jefferson and John Quincy Adams--and an America seen by Iranians as an ideal to emulate for their own government. Drawing on years of archival research both in the US and Iran--including access to Iranian government archives rarely available to western scholars--the Iranian-born, Oxford-educated historian leads us through the four seasons of US-Iran relations: the 'spring' of mutual fascination; the 'summer' of early interactions; the 'autumn' of close strategic ties; and the long, dark 'winter' of mutual hatred. Ghazvinian, with grasp and a storyteller's ability, makes clear where, how, and when it all went wrong. And shows why two countries that once had such heartfelt admiration for each other became such committed enemies; showing us, as well, how it didn't have to turn out this way.

Can a time traveller prevent his younger self from killing the woman they both loved? And can the survivor of a pair of Siamese twins investigate his own brother's murder? No other writer has ever rivalled the imagination and narrative gifts of Ray Bradbury, and the 20 unforgettable stories in this collection demonstrate this singular writer's extraordinary range, influence and emotional power.

The Fear Paradox: How Our Obsession with Feeling Secure Imprisons Our Minds and Shapes Our Lives Audiobook

The Fear Paradox: How Our Obsession with Feeling Secure Imprisons Our Minds and Shapes Our Lives

Author: Frank Faranda Narrator: Jeff Harding Release Date: May 2020

Fear, Contemporary Society, and the Consequences of Security Fear has grown into the single greatest threat to humanity and collective survival. This book aims to set us free from fear. Over the last five hundred years, life for the average human being has changed dramatically-plagues no longer wipe out entire families, and no longer do we empty our chamber pots into the street. Nope, not today. But, western progress has shown that no matter how many dangers we neutralize, new ones emerge. Now we remain at the mercy of an invisible enemy-fear. Our wellbeing suffers and our imaginations are stifled. But why? Safety not guaranteed. For years clinical psychologist Dr. Frank Faranda, PhD, observed a state of fearfulness in his patients-a primordial emotion that relentlessly drives us toward avoidance, alienation, hypercriticism, hyper-control, narcissism and eventually, depression and anxiety. He began to wonder how embedded these fears might be in contemporary society. A culture of fear. Driven by a deep insecurity, society is paradoxically promoting fear, the very thing it runs from. As a result, fear is entrenched in culture, creating new dangers, and isolating ourselves from one another. That's Faranda's Fear Paradox: even though fear has a prime directive to keep us safe, it has grown into the single greatest threat to humanity and collective survival. Fear not. It is time, Faranda believes, for each of us to shine a light on our deepest fears, and to examine with fresh eyes the society that our fear is creating.

The Coldest Warrior Audiobook

The Coldest Warrior

Author: Paul Vidich Narrator: Jeff Harding Release Date: April 2020

The new novel by acclaimed espionage author Paul Vidich explores the dark side of intelligence, when a CIA officer delves into a cold case from the 1950s-with fatal consequences. In 1953, Dr. Charles Wilson, a government scientist, died when he 'jumped or fell' from the ninth floor of a Washington hotel. As his wife and children grieve, the details of the incident remain buried for twenty-two years. With the release of the Rockefeller Commission report on illegal CIA activities in 1975, the Wilson case suddenly becomes news again. Wilson's family and the public are demanding answers, especially as some come to suspect the CIA of foul play, and agents in the CIA, FBI, and White House will do anything to make sure the truth doesn't get out. Enter agent Jack Gabriel, an old friend of the Wilson family who is instructed by the CIA director to find out what really happened to Wilson. It's Gabriel's last mission before he retires from the agency, and his most perilous. Key witnesses connected to the case die from suspicious causes, and Gabriel realizes that the closer he gets to the truth, the more his entire family is at risk. Following in the footsteps of spy fiction greats like Graham Green, John Le Carré, and Alan Furst, Paul Vidich presents a tale - based on the unbelievable true story told in Netflix's Wormwood - that doesn't shy away from the true darkness in the shadows of espionage. Praise for the author: "A simmering, old-fashioned literary spy tale" - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "An Honorable Man is that rare beast: a good, old fashioned spy novel" - JOHN CONNOLLY "Cold War spy fiction in the grand tradition - neatly plotted betrayals in that shadow world where no one can be trusted and agents are haunted by their own moral compromises" - JOSEPH KANON
