«Du hast mich mitten ins Herz getroffen, Clark. Vom ersten Tag an, an dem du mit deinen lächerlichen Klamotten hereingestapft bist. Du hast mein Leben verändert.» Sechs Monate hatten Louisa Clark und Will Traynor zusammen. Ein ganzes halbes Jahr. Und diese sechs Monate haben beide verändert. Lou ist nicht mehr das Mädchen aus der Kleinstadt, das Angst vor seinen eigenen Träumen hat. Aber sie führt auch nicht das unerschrockene Leben, das Will sich für sie gewünscht hat. Denn wie lebt man weiter, wenn man den Menschen verloren hat, den man am meisten liebt? Eine Welt ohne Will, das ist für Lou immer noch schwer zu ertragen. Ein einsames Apartment, ein trister Job am Flughafen – Lou existiert, aber ein Leben ist das nicht. Bis es eines Tages an der Tür klingelt – und sich eine Verbindung zu Will auftut, von der niemand geahnt hat. Endlich schöpft Lou wieder Kraft, Kraft zu kämpfen, für sich, für das, was Will ihr hinterlassen hat, für ein ganz neues Leben.

Wie beeinflusst sie Körper und Geist? Heute schon gegoogelt? Im Durchschnitt sind die Deutschen etwa zweieinhalb Stunden täglich online. Neuesten Studien zufolge, so zeigt Bestsellerautor und IT-Experte Nicholas Carr, bewirkt bereits eine Onlinestunde am Tag erstaunliche neurologische Prägungen in unserem Gehirn. Wer das Internet nach Informationen, sozialen Kontakten oder Unterhaltung durchforstet, verwendet, anders als beim Buch- oder Zeitunglesen, einen Großteil seiner geistigen Energie auf die Beherrschung des Mediums selbst. Und macht sich um die Inhalte, buchstäblich, keinen Kopf. Die Folge: Im Internetzeitalter lesen wir oberflächlicher, lernen wir schlechter, erinnern wir uns schwächer denn je. Von den Anpassungsleistungen unseres Gehirns profitieren nicht wir, sondern die Konzerne, die mit Klickzahlen Kasse machen. In seinem neuen Buch verbindet Carr, zwanzig Jahre nach Entstehung des World Wide Web, seine medienkritische Bilanz mit einer erhellenden Zeitreise durch Philosophie-, Technologie- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte – von Sokrates’ Skepsis gegenüber der Schrift, dem Menschen als Uhrwerk und Nietzsches Schreibmaschine bis zum User als Gegenstand aktueller Debatten und Studien. Und er vermittelt – jenseits von vagem Kulturpessimismus – anhand greifbarer Untersuchungen und Experimente, wie das Internet unser Denken verändert.

From Western Europe to Asia, from the Middle East to the Horn of Africa, societies are finding themselves under growing assault from radical Islamist forces. In some countries, such as Spain and France, the challenge posed by radical Islam is still limited in scope and embryonic in nature. But in others, including Somalia and Pakistan, it poses a mortal danger to the future of the existing state. The World Almanac of Islamism is the first comprehensive reference work to detail the global reach of Islamism across six continents. Each country study, written by leading subject-matter experts, examines the full scope of the Islamist phenomenon, from the activities of radical Islamist groups to the role of Islamist actors and ideas in society to the response – or complicity – of the local government. An additional series of “movement” studies explores the global reach, ideology, and capabilities of the world’s most powerful transnational Islamist movements. Finally, the Almanac includes regional summaries and a global overview designed to provide context and strategic insights into current and emerging trends relating to Islamism the world over. This collection makes a major contribution toward properly defining the Islamist threat and paving the way for the implementation of more effective strategies to counter the rise of radical Islamism by the United States and its allies. It provides policymakers, the news media, scholars, and students with a more comprehensive understanding of the threat we now confront from Islamic extremism. Additionally, the full Almanac is available electronically in database form. It can be accessed online at almanac.afpc.org.
