New Yorker staff writer George Packer profiles the mystique and power of Amazon in his article “Amazon Is Good for Customers. But Is It Good for Books?” This article is in The New Yorker’s February 17 & 24, 2014 issue.

Then, Golden Globe-winner and Oscar-nominated director Hany Abu-Assad’s (Paradise Now, 2006) new film, Omar, tells the story of a young Palestinian baker who spends his nights fighting against the Israeli military.
