»Lieber Amundsen, Scott ist tot. Melde dich, Wilson." Die E-Mail, die Hannas Welt ins Wanken bringt, besteht nur aus einer Zeile und erreicht die Wissenschaftlerin ausgerechnet während einer wichtigen Antarktisexpedition, von der sie neue Erkenntnisse über das Klima der Vergangenheit erwartet. Mit einem Schlag ist die Erinnerung an ihre beste Jugendfreundin Fido wieder da, die vor zwanzig Jahren ohne Erklärung den Kontakt abbrach und damit alle gemeinsamen Zukunftspläne verriet. In der endlosen Weite des Eises lassen die ungeklärten Fragen von damals Hanna immer mehr die Kontrolle verlieren. Als die Spannungen in ihrem kleinen Forscherteam zunehmen und dann auch noch ein Schneesturm den Erfolg ihres Projektes gefährdet, wird die Zeit im Eis endgültig zur Zerreißprobe.

A shocking expose of the CIA's role as drug baron. On March 18, 1998, the CIA's Inspector General, Fred Hitz, told astounded US Reps that the CIA had maintained relationships with companies and individuals that the Agency knew to be involved in the drug business. More shocking was the revelation that the CIA had received from Reagan's Justice Department clearance not to report any knowledge it might have of drug-dealing by CIA assets. Many years' worth of CIA denials, much of it under oath to Congress, were sunk. Hitz's admissions made fools of some of the most prominent names in US journalism and vindicated others that had been ruined. Particularly resonant was the case of the San Jose Mercury News, which published a sensational series on CIA involvement in the smuggling of cocaine into black urban neighborhoods, and then under pressure conspired in the destruction of its own reporter, Gary Webb. In Whiteout, Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair finally put the whole story together, from the earliest days, when the CIA's institutional ancestors cut a deal with America's premier gangster and drug trafficker, Lucky Luciano. This is a thrilling history that stretches from Sicily in 1944 to the killing fields of Laos and Vietnam, to CIA safe houses in Greenwich Village and San Francisco where CIA men watched Agency-paid prostitutes feed LSD to unsuspecting clients. We meet Oliver North, as he plotted with Manuel Noriega and Central American gangsters. We travel to little-known airports in Costa Rica and Arkansas. We hear from drug pilots and accountants from the Cali Cartel. We learn of DEA agents whose careers were ruined because they tried to tell the truth. Cockburn and St. Clair show how the CIA's complicity with drug-dealing criminal gangs was part and parcel of its attacks on labor organizers, whether on the docks of New York, Marseilles, or Shanghai. They trace how the Cold War and counter-insurgency led to an alliance between the Agency and the vilest of war criminals like Klaus Barbie, or fanatic opium traders like the mujahedin in Afghanistan. Cockburn and St. Clair horrifyingly affirm charges of outraged black communities that the CIA had undertaken enduring programs of experiments on minorities. They show that the CIA imported Nazi scientists straight from their labs at Dachau and Buchenwald and set to work, developing chemical and biological agents, tested on blacks, some of them in mental hospitals. Cockburn and St. Clair dissect the shameful way American journalists have not only turned a blind eye to the Agency's misdeeds, but also helped plunge the knife into those who tried to tell the truth. Fact-packed and fast-paced, Whiteout is a richly detailed excavation of the CIA's dirtiest secrets. For anyone who wants to know the real truth about the Agency, this is the book to start with.

Beim polaren Whiteout wird Sonnenlicht so diffus von der Schnee- und Wolkendecke reflektiert, dass sich im Auge des geblendeten Betrachters bestimmte Kontraste auflösen. Sabine Frost überträgt diese verunsicherte Wahrnehmung auf einen Leser literarischer Texte, der bei seiner Lektüre ebenso mit desorientierenden Phänomenen konfrontiert wird. Dabei werden sowohl die gestörte Wahrnehmung als ästhetische Erscheinung als auch der Bruch mit herkömmlichen Formen künstlerischer Repräsentation untersucht.

White·out: n. a surface condition . . . in which no object casts a shadow, the horizon cannot be seen, and only dark objects are discernible . . . Whiteout: when the heavy weather of daily life establishes the measure of the measureless; when the predatory nature of the accidental conjures cowboys and the comatose; when the sickly sweet pop of life underfoot contrasts the televised image, shrinking to a pinprick. Whiteout: calques and towers, twin polar storms, falling, burning. Whiteout: “a book of white nothing.” George Murray’s sixth collection has been a decade in the making. At once taut, tender and terrifying, haunted and haunting, Whiteout shatters convention in the collision of order and rage, formlessness and hard-won serenity.

The book is about the experience of a black man in America who was born into a sharecropper family. It’s about his experiences and observations of the ’40s, ’50s, ’60s, and, now, 2015. It’s about how much America has changed but still remains the same. It’s about racism and white supremacy, from the White House to the outhouse. It’s about the 99 percent in the outhouse versus the 1 percent in the White House. This book is about the white supremacy of all colors and nationalities. This book is to serve as a reminder to all of us that white supremacy cannot endure without all of us participating. We have got to change. We have got to free ourselves from the greed of capitalism. Remember, you can’t spend your dollars with the people who control this white supremacist regime and not bear any of the responsibility.
