Ein neuer Blick auf die Geschichte und Macht großer Ideen In dieser bebilderten Darstellung sechs großer technologischer Neuerungen, die unsere moderne Welt auf vielfältige Weise prägen, zeichnet Steven Johnson die Geschichte der Innovation über die Jahrhunderte nach, indem er bedeutsame Facetten des modernen Alltags (seien es Kühleinrichtungen, Uhren oder Brillengläser) von ihrer Erfindung durch Hobbyforscher, Amateure und Unternehmer bis zu ihren unerwarteten historischen Konsequenzen verfolgt. Das Buch steckt voller überraschender Schilderungen zufälliger genialer Entdeckungen und brillanter Fehlschläge - wie die Geschichte des französischen Verlegers, der den Phonographen schon vor Edison erfunden hatte, oder die des Hollywood-Stars, der zur Entwicklung der Technik hinter WLAN und Bluetooth beitrug. Dabei deckt Johnson immer wieder unerwartete Verbindungen zwischen scheinbar unzusammenhängenden Feldern auf: So ermöglichte die Erfindung der Klimatisierung gewaltige Wanderungsbewegungen von Menschen, nämlich in Millionenstädte wie Dubai oder Phoenix, die ansonsten praktisch unbewohnbar wären; Pendeluhren trugen dazu bei, die Industrielle Revolution auszulösen; sauberes Wasser erwies sich als Voraussetzung für die Produktion von Computer-Chips. Die Erfindung der Zukunft ist die Geschichte jener kollaborativen Netzwerke, die unsere moderne Welt schufen – informativ, oft provokativ und immer unterhaltsam.

Brilliant neo-noir from one of the greatest post-war writers of German A man is murdered in plain sight. But could it be the perfect crime? A respected professor is dead – shot in a crowded Zurich restaurant, in front of dozens of witnesses. The murderer calmly turned himself in to the police. So why has he now hired a lawyer to clear his name? And why has he chosen the drink-soaked, disreputable Spät to defend him? As he investigates, Spät finds himself obsessed, drawn ever deeper into a case of baffling complexity until he reaches a deadly conclusion: justice can be restored only by a crime. This is a captivating neo-noir classic from the master of the genre. Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921-1990) was a Swiss author and dramatist, most famous for his plays The Visit and The Physicists, which earned him a reputation as one of the greatest playwrights in the German language. He also wrote four highly regarded crime novels - The Pledge, The Judge and His Hangman, Suspicion and The Execution of Justice, all of which will be published by Pushkin Vertigo.
