The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it.´´History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce. (Karl Marx)Born in Trier, Germany, Karl Marx studied law and philosophy at university. Due to his controversial political publications however, Marx became stateless and lived in exile with his wife and children in London for decades, where he continued to develop his thought and publish his writings, often researching in the reading room of the British Museum. His best-known titles are the 1848 pamphlet, ´´The Communist Manifesto´´, and the three-volume Das Kapital. His political and philosophical thought had enormous influence on subsequent intellectual, economic and political history and his name has been used as an adjective, a noun and a school of social theory. Marx´s complex theories about society, economics, and politics - collectively understood as Marxism - hold that human societies develop through class struggle. In capitalism, this manifests itself in the conflict between the ruling and working classes. Employing a critical approach known as historical materialism, Marx predicted that, like previous socio-economic systems, capitalism produced internal tensions which would lead to its self-destruction and replacement by a new system: socialism. Marx actively pressed for its implementation, arguing the working class should carry out organised revolution to topple capitalism and bring about socio-economic emancipation.Marx has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history.Geoffrey Giuliano is the author of 32 internationally best-selling books published by the biggest publishers in the world from 1984 to today.

Gritty detective Karl Kane is back in the gripping follow up to Bloodstorm. Young homeless women and drug addicts are being abducted before being brutally mutilated and murdered, and a city is held in a grip of unspeakable terror. The cops are unable - or unwilling - to apprehend the elusive serial killer, and corrupt politicians turn a seemingly blind and almost approving eye to the catalogue of murders. The perpetrator is cunning, wealthy and influential. More importantly, he has never once made a mistake in his grisly calling - until now. By abducting Katie, the young daughter of legendary private investigator Karl Kane, the killer has just made his first mistake, which could well turn out to be his last. Blaming himself for his daughter’s abduction, Karl Kane must now reach down to the darkest recesses of his troubled soul and mind to become as cunning and merciless as the killer - but even that may not be enough to penetrate the fortress-like lair where Karl suspects the killer keeps his victims. There is only one man capable of helping Kane attack the ‘dark place’, a man despised and hated by Detective Inspector Mark Wilson, but even that help becomes as elusive as any Karl will get from the cops. From the nail-biting beginning to the explosive ending, Karl Kane’s nightmarish journey forces upon him a decision that changes his life forever and forces him to look into the abyss of no return. 1.

The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways. The point, however, is to change it. (Karl Marx) It would be almost impossible to exaggerate the influence Karl Marx has had upon the world in the last 150 years. Marx was an influential historian, journalist, and economist who is widely considered one of the first social scientists, but he is best remembered for advocating socialism, particularly the brand that would take his name. As the father of Marxism, Marx predicted that capitalistic societies, ruled by a ´´dictatorship of the bourgeoisie´´, would eventually give way via class struggles to a ´´dictatorship of the proletariat´´ and eventually to a more stateless form of communism. The Communist Manifesto is in several respects a paradoxical document. A product of the Western European political struggles that culminated in the pan-European Revolutions of 1848, its greatest historical impact was nevertheless not felt until the following century, in countries far from Western Europe (Russia and China) that Marx and Engels would never have viewed as ripe for revolutionary activity. 1.

Karl Adams is a new CIA officer undercover and immersed in Murmansk, Russia, as a Spanish graduate student at the local university. On a cold February night, while flying a drone, he takes video of a missile on a transporter erector launcher being loaded aboard a merchant ship. This could be a violation of the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty signed by Reagan and Gorbachev. Karl is recalled to America, but not for long. The Agency wants him to continue with his mission, which brings him to a tumultuous South American country. As the US Navy tracks the Russian ship across the Atlantic, it soon becomes clear that a new Cold War could turn hot, bringing the two superpowers to the brink of war. With Karl being the son of legendary CIA officers Jake Adams and Toni Contardo, he definitely has the DNA to complete this mission. But in the cat and mouse spy game, nobody is safe. ´´Akin to Ludlum and Higgins....” (Dale Brown, New York Times best-selling author)´´A damned good writer.” (David Hagberg, New York Times best-selling author) 1.
