As the preeminent post-9/11 television thriller, 24 has addressed critical issues relating to striking the proper balance between maintaining our civil liberties and ensuring our national security. The show continues to have a profound impact on the way in which we view the world. The Tao of Jack Bauer is an insightful study of Jack Bauer's influence in society. What does Jack Bauer teach us about torture? Does 24 glorify torture or does the series take a more nuanced approach to the issue? How can we maintain our civil liberties in the age of terrorism? How can we best fight terrorists while maintaining our core values? Is Jack Bauer a lawbreaker or a lawmaker? How do we analyze the countless moral and ethical dilemmas presented on 24? What is the "Jack Bauer effect"? How do government agents make use of technology to fight terrorism? The Tao of Jack Bauer tackles all of these issues and many more. The book also contains a fun quiz that measures how similar you are to Jack Bauer. So sit back, relax, and explore the world of 24 in a fresh, new light. As Jack Bauer would say: open the book "now, damn it!"

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
