Sent down in a series of revelations to the Prophet Muhammad, it is regarded by the faithful as the unmediated word of Allah. It is revered by Muslims throughout the world, it inspires unparalleled levels of devotion, passion, fear and, sometimes, incomprehension.In this book, the distinguished scholar Bruce Lawrence shows precisely why the Qur'an is Islam. He describes the origins of the faith in seventh-century Arabia and looks at why the Qur'an needs to be both memorized and recited by its followers. Lawrence also discusses the book's many doubters and commentators and assesses its important influence in societies and politics today. Above all, Lawrence emphasizes that the Qur'an demands interpretation, and can only be properly understood through its history.In these increasingly troubled times, The Qur'an: A Biography is a beautifully written and authoritative account of one of the world's most famous, and most misunderstood, books.<p></p><a href="http://www.saxo.com/dk/quran_bruce-lawrence_epub_9781782392187?utm_campaign=Sociale+aktiviteter&utm_source=Nye+produkter+i+kategori&utm_medium=RSS">Læs mere</a></td></tr></table>http://www.saxo.com/dk/quran_bruce-lawrence_epub_9781782392187?utm_campaign=Sociale+aktiviteter&utm_source=Nye+produkter+i+kategori&utm_medium=RSSThu, 02 Oct 2014 00:00:00 GMTSomething Nasty in the Slushpile<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tr><td valign="top"><a href="http://www.saxo.com/dk/something-nasty-in-the-slushpile_sammy-looker_epub_9781472111074?utm_campaign=Sociale+aktiviteter&utm_source=Nye+produkter+i+kategori&utm_medium=RSS"><img src="http://images.saxo.com/ItemImage.aspx?ItemID=20407642&Width=100&Style=shadow" border="0"></a></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td valign="top"><i>af Sammy Looker</i><p></p><table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tr><td><b>Sprog:</b></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td>Engelsk</td></tr><tr><td><b>Indbinding:</b></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td>ePub</td></tr><tr><td><b>Forlag:</b></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td>Little, Brown Book Group</td></tr><tr><td><b>Udgivet:</b></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td>02-10-2014</td></tr></table><p></p>Most publishers keep a &quote;slushpile&quote; - the stack of unsolicited manuscripts which contains a large percentage of preposterous or frightening book proposals, which might just conceal that one jewel of a bestseller or classic novel lying near the bottom. Authors discovered via the slush pile include Roddy Doyle, J. K. Rowling and Philip Roth. Stephenie Meyer sent 15 query letters about her teenage-vampire saga and got nearly 10 rejection letters; one even arrived after she signed with an agent and received a three-book deal from Little, Brown. Kathryn Stockett's The Help was turned down 60 times over 3 years before becoming a best seller. Sadly though, these are the exceptions... Written by a reader with over a decade of slush pile experience, Something Nasty in the Slushpile takes a tour through the 'do's and 'don't's of book proposal, including many examples of hilarious, misguided and plain weird approaches. The contents include: Offputing greetings: Dear honourable reader, dear potential agent, friend and colleague, dear colleagues etc. Famous first lines: After ten books of criticism, I am turning my attention to a subject close to my heart, the illustrated story of my own life ... I don't really need to explain ... it would make this letter too long Firstly may I apologise for not getting this to you sooner after our conversation last week, however an unexpected funeral cropped up. Someone is killing literary agents ... I would have e-mailed you, but I am not allowed access to such facilities as I have just been sectioned. I should be out soon. Barmy USPs: It's like a British male version of Eat, Pray, Love. But less shrill and more believable. There are echoes of Paul Theroux and parallels with The Alchemist and Siddhartha My book is just about me, just an ordinary 'Jo Bloggs' chipping away relentlessly at the big roadblocks put in my way ... I want 10,000 people to be reading my book at the same time all over the world. I want the light to go on for them, the penny to drop and the wheel of change to start turning ... One person can make a difference and I want that person to be me. How not to respond to constructive criticism: Dear so-called publisher...

Everybody leaves him. They walk out, they run away... they die. When his oldest friend Mel Kissing dies with an icepick through his skull, Raines picks up the thread and sets out to ask 'who?' and 'why?'But this is America in 1969 and one death is just a drop in the ocean. The USA is about to land a man on the moon and the Vietnam War is ripping the country to pieces, setting sons against fathers, fathers against sons. The Woodstock festival is in full swing and Norman Mailer is standing as candidate for Mayor of New York.Against this backdrop, Raines' questions take him back to the childhood home he left in Texas, back to the battered remains of his youth... and as his memory unravels, America unravels with it.<p></p><a href="http://www.saxo.com/dk/sweet-sunday_john-lawton_epub_9781611859744?utm_campaign=Sociale+aktiviteter&utm_source=Nye+produkter+i+kategori&utm_medium=RSS">Læs mere</a></td></tr></table>http://www.saxo.com/dk/sweet-sunday_john-lawton_epub_9781611859744?utm_campaign=Sociale+aktiviteter&utm_source=Nye+produkter+i+kategori&utm_medium=RSSThu, 02 Oct 2014 00:00:00 GMTUnmanned<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tr><td valign="top"><a href="http://www.saxo.com/dk/unmanned_dan-fesperman_epub_9780857893437?utm_campaign=Sociale+aktiviteter&utm_source=Nye+produkter+i+kategori&utm_medium=RSS"><img src="http://images.saxo.com/ItemImage.aspx?ItemID=20634553&Width=100&Style=shadow" border="0"></a></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td valign="top"><i>af Dan Fesperman</i><p></p><table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tr><td><b>Sprog:</b></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td>Engelsk</td></tr><tr><td><b>Indbinding:</b></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td>ePub</td></tr><tr><td><b>Forlag:</b></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td>Atlantic Books Ltd</td></tr><tr><td><b>Udgivet:</b></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td>02-10-2014</td></tr></table><p></p>As an F-16 fighter pilot, Darwin Cole was a family man on top of his world. Now he's a washout - drunk and alone in a trailer in the Nevada desert, haunted by the memory of an Afghan child running for her life from the Predator drone he 'piloted'. Reluctantly, Cole teams up with three journalists seeking to discover the identity of the anonymous intelligence operative who called the shots in that ill-fated mission. But in a surveillance culture, even the well-intentioned must sometimes run for their lives. Especially when they're tracking leads to the very heart of that culture - in intelligence, in the military, and among the unchecked private contractors who stand to profit richly from the advancing technology...

To the right listener, they tell us all about themselves: where they came from, how they lived, how they died - and who killed them. Forensic scientists can unlock the mysteries of the past and help justice to be done using the messages left by a corpse, a crime scene or the faintest of human traces. Forensics uncovers the secrets of forensic medicine, drawing on interviews with top-level professionals, ground-breaking research and Val McDermid's own experience to lay bare the secrets of this fascinating science. And, along the way, she wonders at how maggots collected from a corpse can help determine time of death, how a DNA trace a millionth the size of a grain of salt can be used to convict a killer and how a team of young Argentine scientists led by a maverick American anthropologist uncovered the victims of a genocide. In her crime novels, Val McDermid has been solving complex crimes and confronting unimaginable evil for years. Now, she's looking at the people who do it for real, and real crime scenes. It's a journey that will take her to war zones, fire scenes and autopsy suites, and bring her into contact with extraordinary bravery and wickedness, as she traces the history of forensics from its earliest beginnings to the cutting-edge science of the modern day.<p></p><a href="http://www.saxo.com/dk/forensics_val-mcdermid_epub_9781847659903?utm_campaign=Sociale+aktiviteter&utm_source=Nye+produkter+i+kategori&utm_medium=RSS">Læs mere</a></td></tr></table>http://www.saxo.com/dk/forensics_val-mcdermid_epub_9781847659903?utm_campaign=Sociale+aktiviteter&utm_source=Nye+produkter+i+kategori&utm_medium=RSSThu, 02 Oct 2014 00:00:00 GMTDød og citronmåne<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tr><td valign="top"><a href="http://www.saxo.com/dk/doed-og-citronmaane_mette-vedsoe_epub_9788763837897?utm_campaign=Sociale+aktiviteter&utm_source=Nye+produkter+i+kategori&utm_medium=RSS"><img src="http://images.saxo.com/ItemImage.aspx?ItemID=20700360&Width=100&Style=shadow" border="0"></a></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td valign="top"><i>af Mette Vedsø</i><p></p><table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tr><td><b>Sprog:</b></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td>Dansk</td></tr><tr><td><b>Indbinding:</b></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td>ePub</td></tr><tr><td><b>Forlag:</b></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td>Rosinante & Co</td></tr><tr><td><b>Udgivet:</b></td><td width="10">&nbsp;</td><td>02-10-2014</td></tr></table><p></p><p>Mattis tænker på sin far.

Og snart skifter hans liv endnu engang bane, da han bliver givet til frankernes konge som gidsel og pant for fremtidige skatter. Ved Karl den Stores hof vokser Helgis ønske om at blive ridder, men hele tiden bliver han mindet om, at han bare er søn af en æreløs lydkonge. Hvis Gøtrik ikke betaler sin skat, vil Helgis hoved blive hugget af og sendt nordpå saltet ned i en tønde. Voldsomme begivenheder tvinger Helgi til at tage stilling. Kan han frit vælge at tjene det gode, det sande og det skønne, eller er han for evigt bundet til den slægt, han er født ind i? Og har han trods sin fars svigt et ansvar, når fjenden truer Danermarken? Helgi Daner er inspireret af legenderne om Holger Danske, der blev nedskrevet i Frankrig omkring år 1000.

It was the first 'Great Escape' - but instead of tunnelling, the escapers boldly went over the huge perimeter fences using wooden scaling contraptions. This was the notorious 'Warburg Wire Job', described by fellow prisoner and fighter ace Douglas Bader as 'the most brilliant escape conception of this war'.Months of meticulous planning and secret training hung in the balance during three minutes of mayhem as prisoners charged the camp's double perimeter fences. Telling this remarkable story in full for the first time, historian Mark Felton brilliantly evokes the suspense of the escape itself and the adventures of those who eluded the Germans, as well as the courage of the civilians who risked their lives to help them in enemy territory. Fantastically intimate and told with a novelist's eye for drama and detail, this is a rip-roaring adventure story, all the more thrilling for being true.<p></p><a href="http://www.saxo.com/dk/zero-night_mark-felton_epub_9781848317321?utm_campaign=Sociale+aktiviteter&utm_source=Nye+produkter+i+kategori&utm_medium=RSS">Læs mere</a></td></tr></table>http://www.saxo.com/dk/zero-night_mark-felton_epub_9781848317321?utm_campaign=Sociale+aktiviteter&utm_source=Nye+produkter+i+kategori&utm_medium=RSSThu, 02 Oct 2014 00:00:00 GMT
