<b>From the <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author of <i>Walking the Bible</i> and <i>Abraham </i>comes a revelatory journey across four continents and 4,000 years exploring how Adam and Eve introduced the idea of love into the world, and how they continue to shape our deepest feelings about relationships, family, and togetherness.</b><br /><br />Since antiquity, one story has stood at the center of every conversation about men and women. One couple has been the battleground for human relationships and sexual identity. That couple is Adam and Eve. Yet instead of celebrating them, history has blamed them for bringing sin, deceit, and death into the world.<br />  <br /> In this fresh retelling of their story, <i>New York Times </i>columnist and PBS host Bruce Feiler travels from the Garden of Eden in Iraq to the Sistine Chapel in Rome, from John Milton’s London to Mae West’s Hollywood, discovering how Adam and Eve should be hailed as exemplars of a long-term, healthy, resilient relationship. At a time of discord and fear over the strength of our social fabric, Feiler shows how history’s first couple can again be role models for unity, forgiveness, and love.<br />  <br /> Containing all the humor, insight, and wisdom that have endeared Bruce Feiler to readers around the world, <i>The First Love Story </i>is an unforgettable journey that restores Adam and Eve to their rightful place as central figures in our culture's imagination and reminds us that even our most familiar stories still have the ability to surprise, inspire, and guide us today.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

Ausland!<br />Arbeiten in fernen Ländern!<br />Das waren seit meiner frühesten Jugend immer meine großen Träume und ein Teil meiner beruflichen Ziele.<br />Dann bekam ich von meiner Firma die Chance für die Fertigungsplanung, den Aufbau und die Fertigungsleitung einer Zündkerzen-Fabrik im Iran, 150 Kilometer westlich von Teheran, in der `Alborz Industrial City`, in der Nähe von Ghazvin. <br />Meine Frau und ich, wir lebten in dieser Zeit unmittelbar neben diesem Industriegebiet, buchstäblich in der `Pampa`. Es war dies in der Zeit der letzten fünf Jahre des Schah-Regimes, bis unmittelbar vor dem politischen Umsturz.<br />Schlecht vorbereitet, was die Sitten und Gebräuche diesen uns an und für sich recht fremden Landes anbelangt, machten meine beiden deutschen Kollegen und ich anfänglich auch manchen Fehler im Umgang mit unseren Mitarbeitern, vor allem, wenn wir `zu Deutsch` agierten.<br />Wir erlebten in dieser Zeit in der Person unseres `Deputy Managing Directors` einen extremen und gefährlichen Intriganten. Wie sich nach dem politischen Umsturz herausstellte war er in dieser Zeit auch ein Mitarbeiter des Iranischen Geheimdienstes `Savak`. Ansonsten lernten wir die Iranische Bevölkerung als absolut tolerante Menschen in einem faszinierenden Land kennen. <br />Bei allen Problemen, die bei unserer Arbeit in der Fabrik mitunter auftraten war es immer wieder erstaunlich, zu sehen, zu welchen Leistungen die Mitarbeiter mit ihrer für unsere Begriffe oft sehr mangelhaften Vorbildung fähig waren.<br />Viele der Iranischen Mitarbeiter gaben mir während der Zeit meines Aufenthaltes im Iran einen Einblick in ihre hochinteressante und für uns Europäer oft sehr fremde Kultur. Sie haben mir geholfen, mit der Zeit das Land und die Menschen immer besser zu verstehen.<br />In vielen Gesprächen mit dem Neffen eines Ayatollahs, der in unserer Firma als Chef-Einkäufer angestellt war, erfuhr ich sehr viel über die Hintergründe, die Ursachen der Unzufriedenheit in der Bevölkerung mit dem damaligen Schah-Regime und den US-Amerikanern. Auch konnte ich mit ihm ohne Vorbehalt offene und ehrliche Gespräche über Judentum, Christentum und den Islam führen. Er war es auch, der mich immer ganz ehrlich und offen über zwischenmenschliche Beziehungen oder etwaige daraus resultierende Probleme oder Missverständnisse angesprochen hat. So wurde er für mich im Besonderen in der unruhigen Zeit der Demonstrationen und Proteste gegen das Schah-Regime und der darauf folgenden Zeit des Kriegsrechts im Iran zu einem aufrichtigen Freund. <br />Diese fünf Jahre im Iran wurden für mich ein unvergesslicher Abschnitt und eine echte Bereicherung in meinem Leben, sowohl aus beruflicher als auch aus privater Sicht. Absolutes `Highlight` während dieser Zeit war die Geburt unserer Tochter.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

Having grown up in Minnesota, Jessica Fishman moves to a land in the Middle East that is full of idiosyncrasies, terrorists, and beautiful, olive-skinned men. When she arrives in Israel, she is a wide-eyed immigrant hoping to survive on Zionism. But instead of working the land on a kibbutz or being swept off her feet by a strong, sensitive Israeli soldier, Jessica is faced with a barrage of ridiculous obstacles. She overcomes notorious Israeli bureaucracy, makes embarrassing mistakes learning Hebrew, serves in an army of teenagers, and dates cocky Israelis, until she finally meets one obstacle, rooted in the very ideology that brought her to Israel, that tests the core of her identity. With self-deprecating wit, Jessica takes us on a personal journey through these challenges, weaving a humorous yet heartbreaking tale about losing and finding identity, and offering a seldom-before-seen snapshot of Israeli culture.
