Dieses Buch ist reiner Fake. Es ist in sehr schlechtem Englisch geschrieben. Der Autor erklärt nur trivialste Beispiele, geht fachlich auf nichts ein und das meiste in diesem Buch ist einfach nur eine Erklärung der sowieso schon in javascript vorhandenen Datentypen. Ganz klar finger weg von diesem Buch. Es sind zwar nur 2 Euro gewesen aber trotzdem regt es mich immens auf dieses Geld verschwendet zu haben.
The Port Chicago 50: Disaster, Mutiny, and the Fight for Civil Rights
The Port Chicago 50: Disaster, Mutiny, and the Fight for Civil Rights
THE PORT CHICAGO 50: DISASTER, MUTINY, AND THE FIGHT FOR CIVIL RIGHTS by Steve Sheinkin is at the top of many nonfiction awards lists for 2014. Consider purchasing both the print and audiobook versions.

A finalist for YALSA’s 2015 Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults Award, the book traces the little-known story of 50 African American sailors convicted of mutiny by the U.S. Navy during World War II. Refusing to follow orders to load dangerous explosives onto ships, their story became a rallying cry for those who felt the military’s segregation policies were discriminatory.

Sheinkin brings the story alive through his compelling, well-researched narrative. Woven throughout the story are primary resource materials including historical photos, interviews, and court records. The print and ebook versions contain extensive references and notes that support the narrative.

Middle and high school students often skim works of nonfiction and miss the impact of the narrative. Consider sharing the audiobook version of this story with youth. Dominic Hoffman is a superb storyteller who masterfully switches among a wide range of voices to keep listeners actively engaged in the story.

Many students and teachers who thought they knew about the Civil Rights Movement will be amazed by this gripping, little-known piece of history.
