They have enriched lives and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are подробнее

So begins a story of unforgettable perception, beautifully written and illustrated by the gifted and versatile Shel Silverstein.

The New Confessions is the outrageous, extraordinary, hilarious and heartbreaking autobiography of John James Todd, a Scotsman born in 1899 and one of the great self-appointed (and failed) geniuses of the twentieth century. An often magnificent feat of story-telling and panoramic reconstruction... John James Todd's reminiscences carry us through the ups and downs of a long and lively career that begins in genteel Edinburgh, devastatingly detours out to the Western Front, forks off, after a period of cosy family life in London, to the electric excitements of the Berlin film-world of the Twenties, then moves on to Hollywood... to ordeal by McCarthyism and eventual escape to Europe - Peter Kemp, Observer

'If you see the Black Banners coming, then go to them, even if you have to crawl' - Prophet Muhammad. Ali Soufan was for years the FBI's lead agent in the war against Al Qaeda, as well as its most effective interrogator. On September 11th 2001, he was handed a secret file that could have prevented the attacks, and he has prevented many others by gaining important confessions from Al Qaeda terrorists - without ever laying so much as a hand on them. He is also not afraid to critique the US government's approach to combating terrorism. In The Black Banners he takes us into hideouts, planning meetings, and interrogation rooms.
