Like its popular and acclaimed predecessors, Restoration London and Dr Johnson´s London, this fascinating evocation of Elizabethan London is the result of the author´s passionate interest in the practical details of everyday life and the conditions in which most people lived, which most history books ignore: the streets, houses and gardens; cooking, housework and shopping; clothes, jewellery and make-up; medicine and sex; education, etiquette and hobbies; religion, law and crime. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Liza Picard. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/orio/000427/bk_orio_000427_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

A History of Modern Britain confronts head-on the victory of shopping over politics. It tells the story of how the great political visions of New Jerusalem or a second Elizabethan Age - rival idealisms - came to be defeated by a culture of consumerism, celebrity, and self-gratification. In each decade, political leaders have thought they knew what they were doing, but found themselves confounded. Every time, the British people turn out to be stroppier and harder to herd than predicted. Throughout this audiobook, Britain is a country on the edge: first of invasion, then of bankruptcy, then on the vulnerable front line of the Cold War, and later in the forefront of the great opening up of capital and migration now reshaping the world. This history follows all the political and economic stories, but deals too with comedy, cars, the war against homosexuals, ´60s anarchists, oil-men and punks, Margaret Thatcher´s wonderful good luck, political lies, and the true heroes of British theatre. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew Marr. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/macm/000143/bk_macm_000143_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

In this hour, novelist Erin Morgenstern´s darkly magical novel revolves around a mysterious circus and a contest that pits two young students of magic against each other. Next, Alex Stone is a professional magician with a physics degree. In a new book, Fooling Houdini, he breaks ranks with his fellow magicians, revealing some of the tricks of the trade and their basis in cognitive science. He performs a feat of psychic magic with our radio audience.Then, the last remaining magician´s colony in India -- Kathputli, in Delhi -- is slated to be be bulldozed to make way for shopping malls and high rises. Filmmakers Jim Goldblum and Adam Weber are documenting this thousand-year old tradition of conjuring and illusion before it disappears forever. After that, in traditional cultures, magic can be more than performance -- it can be a way of seing the world and a form of medicine. Philosopher and ecologist David Abram shares lessons from his experiences with shamanic healers. He also performs a little sleight-of-hand in our studio.Following that, historian Deborah Harkness studies the history of alchemy and Elizabethan magic. Her best-selling novels, A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night involve magical historical manuscripts, time travel, and witches and vampires with very impressive academic credentials. She talks with us about the historical connections between magic and science.And finally, Evolutionary biologist and celebrated (and occasionally reviled) atheist Richard Dawkins attempts to redefine ´´magic´´ as a reality-based, non-supernatural function of the mind. [Broadcast Date: July 5, 2013] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Fleming. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/tbon/130705/rt_tbon_130705_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
