Hopeless: Hope ist eigentlich kein bisschen schüchtern, immerhin ist sie in einem Puff großgeworden. Doch als Logan Davonport im Freudenhaus ihrer Mutter auftaucht, ist sie seinen Annäherungsversuchen hilflos ausgeliefert. So locker Hopes Leben auch ist, es gibt für sie eine Regel und diese überwacht ihre Mutter unter allen Umständen: Keine Freier! Aber Logan mag sich so gar nicht an diese Regel halten. Mit allen Mitteln versucht er Hope zu verführen. Aber Logan Davonport ist kein Mann für eine Beziehung, das wird Hope immer bewusster, je mehr sie sich auf ihn einlässt. Andrew: Als Tochter eines Mafiabosses hat man es nicht einfach, das weiß Phoebe McCraw schon lange. Aber jetzt ist sie endlich volljährig und will das gebührend feiern. Leider hat sie da die Rechnung ohne ihren Vater gemacht. Der halst ihr nämlich Andrew als Bewacher auf. Andrew ist fast so etwas wie ein Bruder für sie. Die beiden sind zusammen aufgewachsen, weil er der Adoptivsohn ihres Onkels Ronny ist. Mittlerweile arbeitet Andrew im Familienunternehmen und ist ein echter Mistkerl geworden. Und ausgerechnet er soll jetzt auf sie aufpassen. Phoebe bleibt nichts anderes übrig, als sich zu fügen. Doch statt der wilden Geburtstagsfeier in einem Glasgower Club, findet sich Phoebe in einem geklauten Auto auf der Flucht wieder. Und ihr Entführer ist ausgerechnet Andrew.

In October 1934, the Chinese Communist Army found itself facing annihilation, surrounded by hundreds of thousands of Nationalist soldiers. Rather than surrender, 86,000 Communists embarked on an epic flight to safety. Only thirty were women. Their trek would eventually cover 4,000 miles over 370 days. Under enemy fire they crossed highland awamps, climbed Tibetan peaks, scrambled over chain bridges, and trudged through the sands of the western deserts. Fewer than 10,000 of them would survive, but remarkably all of the women would live to tell the tale. Unbound is an amazing story of love, friendship, and survival written by a new master of adventure narrative.

The Metamorphosis of Magic from Late Antiquity to the Early Modern Period

Deities, demons, and angels became important protagonists in the magic of the Late Antique world, and were also the main reasons for the condemnation of magic in the Christian era. Supplicatory incantations, rituals of coercion, enticing suffumigations, magical prayers and mystical songs drew spiritual powers to the humain domain. Next to the magician's desire to regulate fate and fortune, it was the communion with the spirit world that gave magic the potential to purify and even deify its practitioners. The sense of elation and the awareness of a metaphysical order caused magic to merge with philosophy (notably Neoplatonism). The heritage of Late Antique theurgy would be passed on to the Arab world, and together with classical science and learning would take root again in the Latin West in the High Middle Ages. The metamorphosis of magic laid out in this book is the transformation of ritual into occult philosophy against the background of cultural changes in Judaism, Graeco-Roman religion and Christianity. This volume, the first in the new series Groningen Studies in Cultural Change, offers the papers presented at the workshop The Metamorphosis of Magic from Late Antiquity to the Early Modern Period held from 22 to 24 June 2000, and organised by Jan N. Bremmer and Jan R. Veenstra. The papers have been written by scholars from such varying disciplines as classics, theology, philosophy, cultural history, and law. Their contributions shed new light upon several old obscurities; they show magic to be a significant area of culture, and they advance the case for viewing transformations in the lore and practice of magic as a barometer with which to measure cultural change.

Dieses Buch beleuchtet, wie und in welchem Maße die gesellschaftliche Alterung einen Wandel von sozialen Sicherungssystemen nach sich zieht, gleichzeitig aber auch zur Entstehung von neuen sozialen Risiken in Japan beiträgt. Dabei spielt der regionale Kontext einen wichtigen Faktor in der Wohlfahrtsgenese. Als Grundlage für eine kohärente und umfassende Darstellung der Thematik dient ein Mixed-Methods-Zugang, der sowohl auf ethnographischer Feldforschung als auch der Analyse von sozialpolitischen Maßnahmen und Aggregatdaten basiert. Ergebnisse deuten darauf hin, dass der institutionelle Rahmen positive Effekte auf die Sozialwirtschaft sowie auf lokale Gemeinschaften ausübt. Aber auch innovative Problemlösungsstrategien für die Sozialraumaktivierung werden gefördert. Das Buch richtet sich somit an Wissenschaftler der Sozial-, Regional- und Wohlfahrtsforschung, ebenso auch an die Sozialwirtschaft, um neue Impulse in der Forschung und Sozialpolitik zu setzen.

"Riley's engaging and mezmerizing story of self-discovery and love...can be perfectly read as a standalone. This book will appeal to readers of Edwardian novels and Jane Austen-style fiction." —Library Journal (starred review) “[Lucinda Riley] is a master of plotting… This substantial book is a surprisingly quick and easy read, with engaging characters, a tantalizing glimpse of Edwardian society, and dual storylines that are inventive and intriguing.”—Historical Novel Society In this spellbinding novel, two independent women—separated by a hundred years but linked by forces larger than themselves—discover the secrets of their birth in the spellbinding third book of an epic series by New York Times bestselling author Lucinda Riley. Star D’Aplièse is at a crossroads in her life after the sudden death of her beloved father—the elusive billionaire, affectionately called Pa Salt by his six daughters, all adopted from across the four corners of the world. He has left each of them a clue to their true heritage, and Star’s clue leads her to an antiquarian bookshop in London, and the start of a new journey. A hundred years earlier, headstrong and independent Flora MacNichol vows she will never marry. She is happy in her home in England’s picturesque Lake District—just a stone’s throw away from her childhood idol, Beatrix Potter. But when circumstances carry her to London, and into the home of one of Edwardian England’s most notorious society hostesses, Alice Keppel, she finds herself a pawn in a larger game; forced to choose between passionate love and duty to her family. That is, until a meeting with a mysterious gentleman reveals answers Flora has been searching for… Star’s voyage of discovery takes her deep into Flora’s remarkable story, and into her own past. But the more she uncovers, the more Star begins to question herself, and her place in the world. Ideal for fans of Downton Abbey and the historical fiction of Kate Morton and Kristin Hannah, The Shadow Sister is the “perfect curl-up-in-an-armchair read” (Daily Mail) for anyone who wants to travel through the lush English countryside and explore the lives and loves of the British aristocracy.

""The Kelmscott Chaucer" is the most memorable and beautiful edition of the complete works of the first great English poet. Next to "The Gutenberg Bible", it is considered the outstanding typographic achievement of all time. There are 87 full-page illustrations by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, and the borders, decorations and initials are drawn by William Morris himself. Only 425 copies of this magnificent work were produced in 1896, and this beautiful monochrome facsimile, slightly smaller than the original, makes this glorious book available to all. A fascinating Introduction by Nicholas Barker places the book and its importance in context. The main text is followed by a black and white facsimile of A Note by William Morris on his Aims in Founding the Kelmscott Press, together with a Short History of the Press by S C Cockerell. The volume is illustrated with 87 woodcuts by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, and the borders, decorations and initials are drawn by Sir Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris."--Publisher description.

Marc-Uwe lives together with a kangaroo. The kangaroo is a communist and it is really into Nirvana. It's a classical Berlin flat-sharing community, where the deep questions of life are debated: Is lying in a hammock already a kind of passive resistance? Must the Kangaroo place its pouch onto the conveyor belt at the airport security check? Did the Kangaroo really fight for the Vietcong? And why is it addicted to champagne truffles?

The fiery trails of tracer bullets, as a wounded Spitfire falls from the sky. A Jamaican plantation burns deep into the night. A handful of heroic Highlanders fight their way straight up a vertical cliff to stand on the Plains of Abraham in a fiery dawn. And a torch burns green, through the eerie surrounds of a Parisian cemetery, down into the mysteries of the earth. Four Outlander tales, each set in a different time and place, and yet each one a fiery thread in the warp and weft of the epic story that began in Scotland in 1945, when Claire Randall first touched a boulder in an ancient stone circle and was hurled back in time...
