PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Under Pressure!

Media and Politics
This book focuses on the influence that the media has on German politics and the chequered history of relations between journalists and politicians. It spans the period beginning under allied occupation after 1945 and extending to the current challenges and perspectives. Particular attention is given to the "Spiegel" affair, the controversies involving the Springer press in the 1960s and 1970s, the media hype surrounding politicians and reporting of the NSA scandal. Interviews with high-profile contemporary witnesses and brief commentaries supplement the richly illustrated essays.
