Viele Geschöpfe dieser Welt sind mystisch. Obwohl die Menschheit bereits großes Wissen über die DNA besitzt, können viele Codes der Natur nicht entschlüsselt werden. Daher stellen wir uns oft vor, was für ein beindruckender Anblick ein lebendiger Dinosaurier, Säbelzahltiger oder Mammut wäre. Zum Glück haben wir immer noch den Großen Panda. Den Großen Panda gibt es schon seit 8 Millionen Jahren. Er erlebte die Entwicklung des Spätmiozäns und überlebte die Quartär-Gletscher. Er war das Flaggschiff der ´´Große-Panda-Stegodon´´ Tiergruppe. Der Große Panda hat all die Geheimnisse vergangener Zeiten erlebt, über die die Menschen heute Aufschluss haben wollen. Die harmonische und besondere Schönheit zeigt sich am besten in den friedlich koexistierenden Farben von Schwarz und Weiß. Hunderte Millionen Menschen auf der ganzen Welt lieben und setzen sich für den Großen Panda ein. Zhou, Mengqi, der Fotograf dieses Albums, kommt aus der ´´Heimat des Großen Pandas´´ Chengdu, Sichuan Provinz. Zhou hat aus tiefer Liebe zur Heimat und Natur mehr als 20 Jahre damit verbracht, den Großen Panda und dessen Lebensraum zu beobachten und zu fotografieren. Durch sein Objektiv erleben wir den Panda mit seiner perfekten Harmonie von Schwarz und Weiß, seinen feinen Bewegungen und seiner emotionalen Beziehung zum Menschen. In seinen Bildern sehen wir den Großen Panda nicht nur als ein ´´lebendes Fossil´´ im biologischen Sinne, sondern auch als ein edles Wesen der Natur. Dem Fotografen gelingt es durch seine besondere Sichtweise und sein Einfühlungsvermögen, das Zusammenspiel zwischen der Natur und dem Menschen hervorzuheben. In mühevoller Arbeit entstanden Tausende von Aufnahmen des Großen Pandas. Viele der Aufnahmen sind in diesem Album zu sehen. Hierbei wird man die Geschichte, die Entdeckung, die Gewohnheiten sowie die Aufzucht und den Schutz des Großen Pandas besser verstehen. Die Bilder bringen dem Leser die wahre Welt des Pandas nahe. Many creatures are mystical. Althrough human beings know much biological information including the DNA, they cannot find the solution to all codes of nature. So we often imagine what a wondrous sight it would be if the dinosaur, the saber toothed tiger and the mammoth were still alive! Fortunately, we still have the giant panda. The giant panda has been around for 8 million years. It witnessed the evolution of the late Miocene and the test of the Quaternary glaciers. It was the flagship of the ´´giant panda-stegodon´´ animal group. The giant panda, has witnessed all the bygone secrets to which human beings want to have a clue. The harmonious and primeval beauty can be best reflected in the peacefully co-existing colors of black an white in the panda.

´´Readers with a penchant for both Patrick O´Brian and Anne McCaffrey may have found their perfect match.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review ? Time ? NPR ? St. Louis Post-Dispatch In this brilliant biography, Jon Meacham, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author, chronicles the life of George Herbert Walker Bush. Drawing on President Bush´s personal diaries, on the diaries of his wife, Barbara, and on extraordinary access to the forty-first president and his family, Meacham paints an intimate and surprising portrait of an intensely private man who led the nation through tumultuous times. From the Oval Office to Camp David, from his study in the private quarters of the White House to Air Force One, from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the first Gulf War to the end of Communism, Destiny and Power charts the thoughts, decisions, and emotions of a modern president who may have been the last of his kind. This is the human story of a man who was, like the nation he led, at once noble and flawed. His was one of the great American lives. Born into a loving, privileged, and competitive family, Bush joined the navy on his eighteenth birthday and at age twenty was shot down on a combat mission over the Pacific. He married young, started a family, and resisted pressure to go to Wall Street, striking out for the adventurous world of Texas oil. Over the course of three decades, Bush would rise from the chairmanship of his county Republican Party to serve as congressman, ambassador to the United Nations, head of the Republican National Committee, envoy to China, director of Central Intelligence, vice president under Ronald Reagan, and, finally, president of the United States. In retirement he became the first president since John Adams to see his son win the ultimate prize in American politics. With access not only to the Bush diaries but, through extensive interviews, to the former president himself, Meacham presents Bush´s candid assessments of many of the critical figures of the age, ranging from Richard Nixon to Nancy Reagan; Mao to Mikhail Gorbachev; Dick Cheney to Donald Rumsfeld; Henry Kissinger to Bill Clinton. Here is high politics as it really is but as we rarely see it. From the Pacific to the presidency, Destiny and Power charts the vicissitudes of the life of this quietly compelling American original. Meacham sheds new light on the rise of the right wing in the Republican Party, a shift that signaled the beginning of the end of the center in American politics. Destiny and Power is an affecting portrait of a man who, driven by destiny and by duty, forever sought, ultimately, to put the country first. Praise for Destiny and Power ´´Should be required reading-if not for every presidential candidate, then for every president-elect.´´-The Washington Post ´´Reflects the qualities of both subject and biographer: judicious, balanced, deliberative, with a deep appreciation of history and the personalities who shape it.´´-The New York Times Book Review ´´A fascinating biography of the forty-first president.´´-The Dallas Morning News
