Without a Trace Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

International number one bestselling author Lesley Pearse brings a compelling story of courage, friendship and love in her brand new novel Without a Trace. Coronation Day, 1953. In the Somerset village of Sawbridge, young shopkeeper Molly Heywood slips away from the celebrations to her friend's cottage and makes a shocking discovery: Cassie is dead and her six-year-old daughter Petal has vanished without a trace. In her grief, Molly seeks help from her childhood friend George, now the village policeman, but no one can find Petal. The only clue is a letter from London, where Cassie once lived. Despite George's reluctance and her growing feelings for him, Molly resolves to go to London in the hope of discovering the missing child. Arriving in the big city, Molly quickly learns it's a dangerous place for a country girl on her own. But there's hope too - in the Blitz-ruined East End, she unexpectedly finds friendship with strangers from Cassie's past and, with handsome, mysterious workman Charley, the possibility of something more. However, the closer Molly gets to the truth, the more perilous her journey becomes. She has given up everything - her home, happiness and a chance at love - all to find Petal. But is she also risking her life? From the number one UK bestselling author Lesley Pearse comes Without a Trace, a gripping story of bravery, secrets and love. Praise for Lesley Pearse: "Storytelling at its very best." (Daily Mail). "I absolutely loved it. The characters are likeable and the writing is always brilliant." (Sun). "Intriguing, heart-tugging, beautifully written." (Closer). "An addictive tear-jerker with characters you'll adore, laugh with and cry for." (Bella). "Evocative, compelling, told from the heart."

Christopher Marlowe Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Christopher Marlowe: Poet & Spy is the most thorough and detailed life of Marlowe since John Bakeless's in 1942. It has new material on Marlowe in relation to Canterbury, also on his home life, schooling, and six and a half years at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and includes fresh data on his reading, teachers, and early achievements, including a new letter with a new date for the famous 'putative portrait' of Marlowe at Cambridge. The biography uses for the first time the Latin writings of his friend Thomas Watson to illuminate Marlowe's life in London and his career as a spy (that is, as a courier and agent for the Elizabethan Privy Council). There are new accounts of him on the continent, particularly at Flushing or Vlissingen, where he was arrested. The book also more fully explains Marlowe's relations with his chief patron, Thomas Walsingham, than ever before. This is also the first biography to explore in detail Marlowe's relations with fellow playwrights such as Kyd and Shakespeare, and to show how Marlowe's relations with Shakespeare evolved from 1590 to 1593. With closer views of him in relation to the Elizabethan stage than have appeared in any biography, the book examines in detail his aims, mind, and techniques as exhibited in all of his plays, from Dido, the Tamburlaine dramas, and Doctor Faustus through to The Jew of Malta and Edward II. It offers new treatments of his evolving versions of 'The Passionate Shepherd', and displays circumstances, influences, and the bearings of Shakespeare's 'Venus and Adonis' in relation to Marlowe's 'Hero and Leander'. Throughout, there is a strong emphasis on Marlowe's friendships and so-called 'homosexuality'. Fresh information is brought to bear on his seductive use of blasphemy, his street fights, his methods of preparing himself for writing, and his atheism and religious interests. The book also explores his attraction to scientists and mathematicians such as Thomas Harriot and others in the Ralegh-Northumberland set of thinkers and experimenters. Finally, there is new data on spies and business agents such as Robert Poley, Nicholas Skeres, and Ingram Frizer, and a more exact account of the circumstances that led up to Marlowe's murder.

"Flat out, one of the best Hollywood memoirs ever written . . . an absolute treasure." - Booklist (starred review)§§In my ninety-plus years I've lived a multitude of lives. In the course of all these lives, I had a front-row seat at the birth of television; wrote, produced, created, or developed more than a hundred shows; had nine on the air at the same time; founded the 300,000-member liberal advocacy group People For the American Way; was labeled the "no. 1 enemy of the American family" by Jerry Falwell; made it onto Richard Nixon's "Enemies List"; was presented with the National Medal of Arts by President Clinton; purchased an original copy of the Declaration of Independence and toured it for ten years in all fifty states; blew a fortune in a series of bad investments in failing businesses; and reached a point where I was informed we might even have to sell our home. Having heard that we'd fallen into such dire straits, my son-in-law phoned me and asked how I was feeling. My answer was, "Terrible, of course," but then I added, "But I must be crazy, because despite all that's happened, I keep hearing this inner voice saying, 'Even this I get to experience.'"§§Norman Lear's work is legendary. The renowned creator of such iconic television programs as All in the Family ; Maude ; Good Times ; The Jeffersons ; and Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman , Lear remade our television culture from the ground up. At their peak, his programs were viewed by 120 million people a week, with stories that dealt with the most serious issues of the day-racism, poverty, abortion-yet still left audiences howling with laughter. In Even This I Get to Experience , Lear opens up with all the candor, humor, and wisdom to be expected from one of America's greatest living storytellers.§§But TV and politics are only a fraction of the tale. Lear's early years were grounded in the harshness of the Great Depression and further complicated by his parents' vivid personalities. The imprisonment of Lear's father, a believer in the get-rich-quick scheme, colored his son's childhood. During this absence, Lear's mother left her son to live with relatives. Lear's comic gifts were put to good use during this hard time, as they would be decades later during World War II, when Lear produced and staged a variety show for his fellow airmen in addition to flying fifty bombing missions.§§After the war, Lear tried his hand at publicity in New York before setting out for Los Angeles in 1949. A lucky break had a powerful agent in the audience the night Danny Thomas performed a nightclub routine written by Lear, and within days his career in television began. Before long, his work with Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis (and later Martha Raye and George Gobel) made him the highest-paid comedy writer in the country, and he was spending his summers with the likes of Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks. Movies followed, and soon he was making films starring Frank Sinatra, Dick Van Dyke, and Jason Robards. Then came the '70s and Lear's unprecedented string of TV hits.§§Married three times and the father of six children ranging in age from nineteen to sixty-eight, Lear's penetrating look at family life, parenthood, and marriage is a volume in itself. A memoir as touching, funny, and remarkable as any of Lear's countless artistic creations, Even This I Get to Experience is nothing less than a profound gift, endlessly readable and characteristically unforgettable.

The fourth book in Richard Blake's brilliant series featuring Aelric, the six-century English adventurer, combines an expert's knowledge of the Roman world with intrigue, sex, black comedy and extreme violence. 687 AD. Expansive and triumphant, the Caliphate has stripped Egypt and Syria from the Byzantine Empire. Farther and farther back, the formerly hegemonic Empire has been pushed - once to the very walls of its capital, Constantinople. All that has saved it from destruction is the invention of Greek Fire. Is it a liquid? Is it a gas? Is it a gift from God or the Devil? Or is it a recipe found in an ancient tomb? Few know the answer. But all know how it has broken the Islamic advance and restored Byzantine control of the seas. Yes, without this "miracle weapon," Constantinople would have fallen in the 7th century, rather than the 15th, and the new barbarian kingdoms of Europe would have gone down one by one before the unstoppable cry of Allah al akbar! But what importance has all this to old Aelric, now in his nineties, and a refugee from the Empire he's spent his life holding together? No longer the Lord Senator Alaric, Brother Aelric is writing his memoirs in the remote wastes of northern England, and waiting patiently for death. For company, he has his student, Wilfred, sickly through bright, and Brother Joseph, another refugee from the Empire. Or there's ghastly Brother Cuthbert to despise - or to envy for his possession of pretty young Edward. Then a band of northern barbarians turns up outside the monastery - and then another. Almost before he can draw breath, Aelric is a prisoner and, with Edward, headed straight back into the snake pit of Mediterranean rivalries. Who has snatched Aelric out of retirement, and why? What is the nature of Edward's fascination with a man more than eighty years his senior? How, together, will they handle the confrontation that lies at the end of their journey - a confrontation that will settle the future of mankind? Will age have robbed Aelric of his charm, his intelligence, his resourcefulness, or of his talent for cold and homicidal duplicity?

Leaving Home Columbia University Press

Why, after a childhood of emotional neglect and abuse, would a man move next door to the very parents who caused him pain? And how can a woman emerge from her mother's control in order to form healthy adult relationships? Giving up family attachments that failed to meet our needs as children, David Celani argues, is the hardest psychological task an adult can undertake. Yet the reality is that many adults re-create the most painful aspects of their early relationships with their parents in new relationships with peers and romantic partners, frustrating themselves and discouraging them from leaving their family of origin. Leaving Home emphasizes the life-saving benefits of separating from destructive parents and offers a viable program for personal emancipation. Celani's program is based on Object-Relations Theory, a branch of psychoanalysis developed by Scottish analyst Ronald Fairbairn. The human personality, Fairbairn argued, is not the result of inherited (and thus immutable) instincts. Rather, the developing child builds internal relational templates that guide his future interactions with others based on the conscious and unconscious memories he internalized from his primary relationship -- the one he experienced with his parents. While a child's attachment to parents who were neglectful or even abusive is not uncommon, there is a way out. Articulate, sensitive, and replete with examples from Celani's twenty-six years of clinical practice, this book outlines the practical steps to leaving home.

Kevin Barham, Claudia Heimer - ABB Financial Times Prentice Hall

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"If we didn't write this book, we would be dying to see it published. Whenever one reads about ABB in the management literature, there is a 'no questions asked' quality of 'if ABB has done it, why can't you, it must be the right thing to do. This is the way to do it, this is what ABB have done.'"- Claudia Heimer & Kevin Barham There is almost an ABB doctrine that fascinates both scholars and managers. Why is ABB so interesting to managers and gurus alike? Why is it the world's favorite case study? Why is Percy Barnevik possibly 'the most influential manager in the world' (according to the Observer newspaper) In June 1987, Beat Hess, head of the legal department of the world-famous Swiss electro-technical firm BBC Brown Boveri, was about to take his family on a well-earned week's holiday to Italy. He was suddenly told by BBC's chairman Fritz Leutwiler and chief executive Thomas Gasser, to prepare a full draft agreement for the 'unthinkable' - negotiations for a merger with long-time rival ASEA, the Swedish power engineering firm that had been gaining ground on Brown Boveri ever since a new CEO, Percy Barnevik, had taken over in 1980. If it came off, this would be the largest cross-border merger in history. Hess was told to go ahead with his holiday if he wanted to, but that the agreement had to be completed by the first week in July. The handwritten draft with its coffee and suntan lotion stains that Hess brought back from Italy was to be the basis for what has now become a legend of corporate history. ABB has grown to be the leading power engineering company in the world. It doubled its size in six years and is now a $31 billion corporation employing 213,000 people in 50 or more countries, including all the major markets, around the globe. According to the last three years' surveys in the FT, it is Europe's most admired company and Percy Barnevik, Europe's most admired CEO. How do we make sense of what ABB has achieved? Their success, in one of the most fiercely competitive industries in the world, a success which is all the more remarkable for a company which pioneered a new form of global organization. Percy Barnevik has described the paradoxes that ABB has tried to resolve as the simultaneous attempt to be 'global and local, big and small, and radically decentralized with central reporting and control.' In essence, Barnevik and his senior colleagues at ABB have tried to resolve these contradictions by creating what we call a 'globally-connected corporation', a loose-tight network of processes and partners which can only be held together by highly committed people and strongly-held principles. The gurus fell in love with ABB very quickly...Tom Peters calls ABB a 'buckyball organization' and says that Percy Barnevik is the most insistent enemy of bureaucracy that he has ever met. Manfred Kets de Vries has described the challenge of managing ABB as 'making a giant dance', While it may not be a model for every other company, it is certainly an example of what most companies can achieve. ABB The Dancing Giant gives its reader the exciting opportunity to look through the keyhole and hear from some very interesting people around ABB, both in the corporate headquarters and locations world-wide. It will also satisfy their curiosity about the heritage of Percy Barnevik, who has almost come to personify the company. It will look at how the company is doing now that he has passed on the role of CEO to Goran Lindahl. You will be able to look behind his image and public statements and find out what other people in the company think, how they lived the story of the merger, and what life is like for them in the organization. ABB the Dancing Giant has not been written simply for the sake of a fascinating history, which it certainly is, but to ask ourselves what other managers who are faced with the challenges of globalisation can learn from the story. It will : * document the story of the merger and of ABB's growth and global expansion * catch a greater glimpse of the real story behind the company's on-going success * raise some key questions for the future of ABB - how is Goran Lindahl preparing ABB for the next Millennium? * highlight some lessons from ABB's experience for managers in other organizations facing international and global challenges * be a frank look at the good and bad of ABB and what other managers and companies can learn and implement from this story. Authors: Kevin Barham is Director of the Ashridge Center for Management and Organization Learning and a founding partner of the Global Development Partnership. His research has focused on the development of international managers - a topic where ABB itself has much to teach other organizations. Claudia Heimer is Business Director and a member of the management team of Ashridge Consulting, where she has been interested in the cultural, strategic and IT implications of globalisation Outline Contents Part One : The Birth of a Modern Giant The story of the two companies that came to form ABB, ASEA of Sweden, and BBC (Brown Boveri Corporation) of Switzerland. Includes insights into the details of the merger talks, the high emotions involved and the way that Percy Barnevik drove the negotiations to a successful outcome. Part Two : Giant Steps to the Globally-Connected Corporation Looks at ABB's global expansion and looks at ABB through a number of different lenses. Looks at ABB as the 'globally-connected corporation' and sets ABB in the context of the global transitions that more and more firms are having to make to compete in a globalised world. Includes an overview of four of the most important analyses of ABB by leading management gurus. Part Three : Reaping the Harvest The organization a decade after the merger - find out how the masterplan has worked out so far. Looks more closely at why ABB has become the world's favorite case study and at why it is an example of that rare organizational breed, a successful cross-border merger. Postscript : The Future of ABB ABB has successfully completed its first decade of existence and occupies the corporate Mount Olympus together with General Electric and Microsoft, but what does the future hold? How can ABB sustain and build on their success? How will Goran Lindahl shape up now Percy Barnevik has given him control?

Inside Immigration Detention Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

On any given day nearly 3000 foreign national citizens are detained under immigration powers in UK detention centres alone. Around the world immigrants are routinely detained in similar conditions. The institutions charged with immigrant detention are volatile and contested sites. They are also places about which we know very little. What is their goal? How do they operate? How are they justified? Inside Immigration Detention lifts the lid on the hidden world of migrant detention, presenting the first national study of life in British immigration removal centres. Offering more than just a description of life behind bars of those men and women awaiting deportation, it uses staff and detainee testimonies to revisit key assumptions about state power and the legacies of colonialism under conditions of globalization. Based on fieldwork conducted in six immigration removal centres (IRCs) between 2009 and 2012, it draws together a large amount of empirical data including: detainee surveys and interviews, staff interviews, observation, and detailed field notes. From this, the book explores how immigration removal centres identify their inhabitants as strangers, constructing them as unfamiliar, ambiguous and uncertain. In this endeavour, the establishments are greatly assisted by their resemblance to prisons and by familiar racialized narratives about foreigners and nationality. However, as staff and detainee testimonies reveal, in their interactions and day-to-day life women and men find many points of commonality. Such recognition of one another reveals the goal and effect of detention to be incomplete. Denial requires effort. In order to minimize the effort it must expend, the state 'governs at distance', via the contract. It also splits itself in two, deploying some immigration staff onsite, while keeping the actual decision-makers (the caseworkers) elsewhere, sequestered from the potentially destabilizing effects of facing up to those whom they wish to remove. Such distancing, while bureaucratically effective, contributes to the uncertainty of daily life in detention, and is often the source of considerable criticism and unease. Denial and familiarity are embodied and localized activities, whose pains and contradictions inhere in concrete relationships.

Inside Immigration Detention Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

On any given day nearly 3000 foreign national citizens are detained under immigration powers in UK detention centres alone. Around the world immigrants are routinely detained in similar conditions. The institutions charged with immigrant detention are volatile and contested sites. They are also places about which we know very little. What is their goal? How do they operate? How are they justified? Inside Immigration Detention lifts the lid on the hidden world of migrant detention, presenting the first national study of life in British immigration removal centres. Offering more than just a description of life behind bars of those men and women awaiting deportation, it uses staff and detainee testimonies to revisit key assumptions about state power and the legacies of colonialism under conditions of globalization.

Vanished Ocean Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is a book about an ocean that vanished six million years ago - the ocean of Tethys. Named after a Greek sea nymph, there is a sense of mystery about such a vast, ancient ocean, of which all that remains now are a few little pools, like the Caspian Sea. There were other great oceans in the history of the Earth - Iapetus, Panthalassa - but Tethys was the last of them, vanishing a mere moment (in geological terms) before Man came on the scene. Once Tethys stretched across the world. How do we know? And how could such a vast ocean vanish? The clues of its existence are scattered from Morocco to China. This book tells the story of the ocean, from its origins some 250 million years ago, to its disappearance. It also tells of its impact on life on Earth. The dinosaurs were just beginning to get going when Tethys formed, and they were long dead by the time it disappeared. Dorrik Stow describes the powerful forces that shaped the ocean; the marine life it once held and the rich deposits of oil that life left behind; the impact of its currents on environment and climate. It is rarely realized how very important oceans are to climate and environment, and therefore to life on Earth. The story of Tethys is also a story of extinctions, and floods, and extraordinary episodes such as the virtual drying up of the Mediterranean, before being filled again by a dramatic cascade of water over the straits of Gibralter. And in the telling of that story, we also learn how geologists put together the clues in rocks and fossils to discover Tethys and its history.
