In the fall of 1999, New York Times education reporter Jacques Steinberg was given an unprecedented opportunity to observe the admissions process at prestigious Wesleyan University. Over the course of nearly a year, Steinberg accompanied admissions officer Ralph Figueroa on a tour to assess and recruit the most promising students in the country. The Gatekeepers follows a diverse group of prospective students as they compete for places in the nation's most elite colleges. The first book to reveal the college admission process in such behind-the-scenes detail, The Gatekeepers will be required reading for every parent of a high school-age child and for every student facing the arduous and anxious task of applying to college. "[The Gatekeepers] provides the deep insight that is missing from the myriad how-to books on admissions that try to identify the formula for getting into the best colleges...I really didn't want the book to end." —The New York Times

»Seit Rabin tot ist, sieht Israels Zukunft düster, düster, düster aus.« Carmi Gillon, Schin-Bet-Chef 1994–1996 Zum ersten Mal überhaupt geben sechs frühere Chefs des israelischen Geheimdienstes Schin Bet Auskunft über ihr Handeln und ihre Entscheidungen – und werfen damit ein neues Licht auf die Besatzungspolitik in den palästinensischen Gebieten. Das Buch basiert auf dem sensationellen Dokumentarfilm The Gatekeepers (deutscher Titel: Töte zuerst) und enthält eine Fülle von Material, das der Autor und Regisseur im Film nicht verwenden konnte.Dem Filmemacher Dror Moreh ist es gelungen, alle sechs noch lebenden Ex-Chefs des israelischen Geheimdienstes Schin Bet vor die Kamera zu bekommen. Und nicht nur das: Sie sprechen so schonungslos offen und (selbst-)kritisch über Folterungen, gezielte Tötungen, Bombenangriffe, all die Maßnahmen, die sie seit dem Sechstagekrieg 1967 gegen die Palästinenser in den besetzten Gebieten angeordnet haben. Und sie stellen im Rückblick die Frage nach der moralischen Legitimation ihrer Aktionen. Ihr Urteil fällt vernichtend aus. So sagt Avraham Schalom, Schin-Bet-Chef 1980–1986: »Was wir den Palästinensern antun, unterscheidet sich, abgesehen von der Judenvernichtung, nicht von den Nazis in Osteuropa.« Politisch besonders brisant, dass die sechs Männer, allesamt israelische Patrioten, die ständig an den jeweiligen Premierminister berichtet haben, sämtlichen israelischen Regierungen seit 1967 (mit Ausnahme der von Jitzhak Rabin) vorwerfen, die falsche Palästina-Politik betrieben zu haben und zu betreiben: »Israel kapiert nicht, dass es jeden Kampf gewinnt. Aber den Krieg verliert.« Eine »spektakuläre israelische Dokumentation« (Der Spiegel), »der wichtigste Film des Jahres« (New York Times)

The first in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the White House Chiefs of Staff, whose actions—and inactions—have defined the course of our country. What do Dick Cheney and Rahm Emanuel have in common? Aside from polarizing personalities, both served as chief of staff to the president of the United States—as did Donald Rumsfeld, Leon Panetta, and a relative handful of others. The chiefs of staff, often referred to as "the gatekeepers," wield tremendous power in Washington and beyond; they decide who is allowed to see the president, negotiate with Congress to push POTUS's agenda, and—most crucially—enjoy unparalleled access to the leader of the free world. Each chief can make or break an administration, and each president reveals himself by the chief he picks. Through extensive, intimate interviews with all seventeen living chiefs and two former presidents, award-winning journalist and producer Chris Whipple pulls back the curtain on this unique fraternity. In doing so, he revises our understanding of presidential history, showing us how James Baker’s expert managing of the White House, the press, and Capitol Hill paved the way for the Reagan Revolution—and, conversely, how Watergate, the Iraq War, and even the bungled Obamacare rollout might have been prevented by a more effective chief. Filled with shrewd analysis and never-before-reported details, The Gatekeepers offers an essential portrait of the toughest job in Washington.

The GatekeeperS≪/i> examines the politics and policy of immigration in six countries: the United States, Australia, Great Britain, Germany, Israel, and Venezuela. Each chapter is authored by a noted specialist who analyzes his or her country's experience by focusing upon how social and economic trends over time have helped to shape and explain national immigration policies. This unique comparative politics approach to the subject offers students of public policy and comparative government important new insights into the policy process in general and the dynamics of immigration politics in particular. The countries included in the study vary considerably in their fundamental approach to the question of immigration. Some have relied upon a 'guestworker' approach, others have developed policies aimed at permanent settlement. Some have formulated religious-based policies, while others have attempted to recruit foreign labor. And, as the contributors demonstrate, each of the countries has experienced international migration on a scale which was largely unforeseen and for which they were poorly prepared. Many, too, have evidenced profound shifts in immigration policy over time. The contributors fully address all of these issues, offering a wealth of information about the similarities and differences in national immigration policies and the dramatic social, economic, and political impact of shifts in these policies.

All is not well in Chthonic City, Maine. People are anxious, sleepless. Road rage is on the rise, and the ERs overflow with domestic and workplace violence. Why? Because the citizens of Chthonic City are having recurring, terrifying nightmares about demons rising to walk among them, and they’re snapping. In fact, demons ARE rising. Slowly. One at a time, to dwell unnoticed among us as they multiply our misery. And they’re rising in Chthonic City where the veil between the Chthonic (the Underworld for which the City was named, though the meaning of the word has been long forgotten) and earthly reality is very thin. Demons cannot rise until a human soul is driven mad. Over the millennia, demons have crossed as they could, but never before has humanity been so stressed as it is now in the Western world. Never before have we been so starved for time, touch, meaning, purpose. Never have our circuits been so overloaded with gloom and doom, economically, environmentally, spiritually. Never before have the demons had such a vulnerable population. Scenting a chance to break free in numbers, they hurl themselves into our dreams, battering at our sanity. But these demons are not unopposed. In a crumbling church on the edge of town, an ancient Guardian has been watching and waiting. When the threat from the Underworld surges, the Guardian's job is to send out a call to a fresh crop – a cell – of Gatekeepers, and train them to descend into the Chthonic through the dream state and do battle with the demons, slaying them there before they can cross the threshold. In Chthonic City, a new cell of Gatekeepers – teenagers all – has just been summoned....
