Originally published in as a counterpoint to the myopic, Eurocentric narrative of African history popular in the West at the time, Carter G. Woodson's African Heroes and Heroines delves into the rich and complex political, military, and economic history of the African continent with the objective eye of a scientific observer. Intended for upper level high-school students, Woodson presents a fair biographical treatment of African leaders through history as figures of equal - if not greater - intelligence, prowess, and strength as the heroic leaders canonized in the histories of other races. While the popular histories of Africa in America had represented Africans as disorganized, unenlightened, and docile, Woodson paints a far more realistic picture of a people who were fiercely resistant to Western imperialism and occupation. For academics as well as those interested in an important, if somewhat dated, historical survey of African leaders, African Heroes and Heroines represents an important piece of America's cultural past. Featuring an abundance of rich illustrations by esteemed Harlem Renaissance painter, Lois Mailou Jones, this re-issued edition is a high quality reprint of the classic text.

Если твоя проверка выявила нечто необычное, то лишь потому, что это сделали мы. А теперь, если не возражаешь… - Стратмор не договорил, но Чатрукьян понял его без слов. Ему предложили исчезнуть.
Он вздохнул и задал единственный вопрос, который пришел ему в голову; - Как выглядит эта девушка. - Era un punqui, - ответила Росио. Беккер изумился. - Un punqui. - Si.
Когда он поднес раскаленный конец паяльника к последнему контакту, раздался резкий звонок мобильного телефона.
Беккер мчался, не видя ничего вокруг, постоянно сворачивал, избегая прямых участков. Шаги неумолимо приближались. В голове у него не было ни единой мысли - полная пустота. Он не знал ни где он находится, ни кто его преследует и мчался, подгоняемый инстинктом самосохранения.
Ты никогда не смог бы проникнуть в почту коммандера. - Ты ничего не понимаешь! - кричал Хейл. - На его компьютере уже стоял жучок! - Он говорил, стараясь, чтобы его слова были слышны между сигналами.
