The Middle Kingdom The year is 2196. The Minister of the Edict - an official responsible for licensing all technology that could lead to Change - has been assassinated, and the great Empire of Ice, Chung Kuo, has finally been shaken after more than a century of brutally-enforced peace. Amid the chaos, the rebels seize the opportunity to affect Change. But the assassination was orchestrated far closer to home, leading them all into dangerous chain of betrayal and deceit that will plunge them all into the world-shattering War of Two Directions. Ice and Fire Spring 2201 - Spring 2203. The T'ang who make up the ruling Seven are struggling to maintain stasis and prevent Change as the war is fought within the levels of their great world-spanning city - a war fought with bombs and betrayals, brutal assassinations and sly poisonings. As the pressure mounts, a document is discovered by the Dispertionists that charts the true history of the world, and apparently its not exactly what the Ministry have told them...

Two gripping beginnings in one: the first and second instalments in David Wingrove's epic Chung Kuo series Son of Heaven It's 2065, and twenty years after the great economic collapse, Western civilisation struggles on. Jake Reed was one of the lucky ones, now living in rural Dorset with his memories and his 14-year-old son. But Chinese airships are arriving in the skies and a strange, glacial structure has begun to dominate the horizon. A resurgent China is seeking to conquer the world - and Jake will find himself at the heart of the struggle for the future. Daylight on Iron Mountain China is on the verge of world domination, but two blood enemies - Arabs and Jews - have united against their common cause. The exalted Tsao Ch'un, the Son of Heaven, must decide whether to destroy the Middle East in one blinding flash, or take another path. And in the oppressive, ordered society of new China, Jake Reed is not the only one feeling a little rebellious...

THE FOURTH INSTALMENT IN THE CHUNG KUO SERIES Spring 2201 - Spring 2203: The T'ang who make up the ruling Seven are struggling to maintain stasis and prevent change, as the "War That Wasn't A War" is fought within the levels of Chung Kuo's great world-spanning City: a war fought not with armies on battlefields but with an inventive evil - with bombs and betrayals, brutal assassinations and sly poisonings. Adding to the pressure for change is the existence of a document that charts the true history of this world, not the version invented and policed by the Ministry - the "Thousand Eyes" - who have, for so long, maintained this dark shadow at the very heart of Chung Kuo. Its discovery by the Dispersionists will fuel their ardent desire for change and for an end to Han rule. Lined up against the Dispersionists are a handful of men utterly loyal to the Seven - men like General Tolonen, along with the two men he has recruited from the Lowers, Gregor Karr and Kao Chen. When Tolonen destroys the newly-built generation-starship, The New Hope, he will change Chung Kuo for good by declaring war on the Dispertionists.

Wenige beruhmte Stadte waren im Lauf ihrer Geschichte so umstritten wie Jerusalem. Selten wurde die Stadt von Herrschern aus ihren Reihen regiert. Lang ist die Liste der fremden Machte, die uber sie geherrscht haben, schon in biblischer Zeit. Agypter, Assyrer, Babylonier, Perser, Ptolemaer, Seleukiden und Romer haben einander abgelost. Immer wieder stellte sich die drangende Frage, wie man sich den neuen Herrschern und ihrer Kultur gegenuber verhalten soll. Unterschiedlichste Formen von Anpassung und Widerstand wurden praktiziert. Seine weltgeschichtliche Bedeutung verdankt die Stadt aber nicht den turbulenten politischen Auseinandersetzungen, dem Wachsen und Schrumpfen ihres Territoriums, sondern der Tatsache, der Geburtsort jenes Monotheismus geworden zu sein, der zu einem wesentlichen Element des Judentums, des Christentums und des Islam wurde. Diese monotheistischen Religionen erfreuen sich heute nicht eines besonders guten Rufs. In breiten Kreisen geniessen polytheistische Systeme mit ihrer Vielzahl von Gottheiten mehr Sympathie.Der seit 50 Jahren wissenschaftlich tatige Othmar Keel skizziert in knappen Strichen, wie der israelitisch-judische Monotheismus bei seiner Entstehung viele Erfahrungen, Symbole und Erkenntnisse polytheistischer Religionen aufgenommen und in seine globale Vision integriert hat. Das zu zeigen verwendet Keel ebenso souveran biblische wie ausserbiblische Texte, archaologische wie neueste ikonographische Funde. Besonders letztere kommen in seiner Darstellung stark zum Zug und fuhren wiederholt zu uberraschend neuen Einsichten.
