Never Again

Considering recent events, we should all keep a look over our shoulder - the unthinkable could happen again, so easily. Let us hope it does not because the numbers would be even more staggering than the Holocaust. This time it will not be the Jewish people. Muslims have to clean house from within, or the lunatics will do it for them. Pulled from the aftermath of an ISIS attack in London where 532 people perished, Tobias Rock believes that it was his destiny to survive. Europe is a powder keg waiting to implode with vast numbers of immigrants leaving the Middle East to pass safe havens to reach Britain. This is unacceptable to the former British Army Intelligence Corps officer who embarks on a new mission - to rid the United Kingdom of all militant Muslims and anyone offering them shelter. To achieve his goal he must enter the murky world of politics and gain power by fair means or foul. A holocaust awaits as a reign of terror threatens the oldest democracy in the world but Rock only cares for the preservation of British values and strengthening her armed forces. Will history repeat itself or will Rock's enemies in parliament stop him in time.

An eye-opening account of life inside North Korea—a closed world of increasing global importance—hailed as a “tour de force of meticulous reporting” (The New York Review of Books)
 
NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST • NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FINALIST
 
In this landmark addition to the literature of totalitarianism, award-winning journalist Barbara Demick follows the lives of six North Korean citizens over fifteen years—a chaotic period that saw the death of Kim Il-sung, the rise to power of his son Kim Jong-il (the father of Kim Jong-un), and a devastating famine that killed one-fifth of the population.
 
Demick brings to life what it means to be living under the most repressive regime today—an Orwellian world that is by choice not connected to the Internet, where displays of affection are punished, informants are rewarded, and an offhand remark can send a person to the gulag for life. She takes us deep inside the country, beyond the reach of government censors, and through meticulous and sensitive reporting we see her subjects fall in love, raise families, nurture ambitions, and struggle for survival. One by one, we witness their profound, life-altering disillusionment with the government and their realization that, rather than providing them with lives of abundance, their country has betrayed them.
