Hi there! It’s nice to present you once again with another ‘hot’ issue of easyuni. On 11 June this year, we launched the unifrens social platform, an extension to easyuni’s existing vision of providing comprehensive and accurate information to students about colleges and universities. This is another milestone in the history of easyuni as one of Asia’s most popular education portals, committed to helping students with their higher education plans. unifrens is a social platform which allows students, searching for universities and colleges with similar interests, to connect with each other to help them make unbiased and community-driven decisions about their higher education. It also allows them to connect with students who are currently enrolled at universities who can tell them about their experiences about a particular city, country, university or a course. unifrens is something we had been planning for a while to complement our current family of tools for students. We always knew that our users would love it as they want more community-driven information instead of promotional content from universities and “study abroad” consultants. I believe this feature will democratise the way information about specifi c courses, countries or institutions is presented and this can only mean good news for students and their parents visitors, as it helps them make more informed decisions about which course, institution or country to pick. Students can also pose questions to their groups, which will be answered by experts and the community. The feature is still in its beta stage but has gained massive traction with over 100,000 users already registered and assigned to groups. Exciting, isn’t it? The issue you’re holding now has so much to offer as well. So, read every page and fi ll yourself with all the knowledge needed to make informed decisions about your higher education.

In den letzten zehn Jahren ist die Anzahl der demokratischen Staaten weltweit erschreckend schnell zurückgegangen. Erleben wir gerade das Ende der liberalen Demokratie? Der US-amerikanische Politikwissenschaftler Francis Fukuyama, Autor des Weltbestsellers Das Ende der Geschichte, sucht in seinem neuen Buch nach den Gründen, warum sich immer mehr Menschen antidemokratischen Strömungen zuwenden und den Liberalismus ablehnen. Er zeigt, warum die Politik der Stunde geprägt ist von Nationalismus und Wut, welche Rolle linke und recht Parteien bei dieser Entwicklung spielen, und was wir tun können, um unsere gesellschaftliche Identität und damit die liberale Demokratie wieder zu beleben. »Intelligent und klar – wir brauchen mehr Denker, die so weise sind wie Fukuyama.« THE NEW YORK TIMES »Einer der bedeutendsten Politikwissenschaftler der westlichen Welt.« DIE WELT

Laura Wishart ist fort. Ein für alle Mal. Sie wurde auf einer seltsamen Lichtung getötet, die nur Jasper Jones bekannt ist. Und ich habe sie dort hängen sehen. Australien 1965. Mitten in der Nacht wird der 13-jährige Charlie Bucktin vom Klopfen an seinem Fenster geweckt. Draußen steht Jasper Jones, der Außenseiter der kleinen Stadt Corrigan und zugleich ein unbestimmter Held für Charlie. Jasper bittet ihn um Hilfe, und so stiehlt sich Charlie mit ihm durch den nächtlichen australischen Busch – voller Angst, aber auch voller Abenteuerlust. Auf einer geheimen Lichtung wird Charlie Zeuge von Jaspers schrecklicher Entdeckung. Mit diesem beklemmenden Geheimnis in seinem Herzen durchlebt Charlie eine Zeit der Angst, der falschen Verdächtigungen – und des Erwachens. In einem einzigen drückend heißen Sommer, in dem sich Charlies Leben für immer verändert, wird er lernen, die Wahrheit von der Lüge zu unterscheiden und sich vor Gerüchten zu fürchten wie vor einem Fluch. «Der wunderbar geschriebene Roman erzählt von Freundschaft, Rassismus und sozialer Ausgrenzung. Eine Hommage an ‹Wer die Nachtigall stört› und ‹Die Abenteuer des Huckleberry Finn›.» (Marie Claire UK)
