Parallel Stories JONATHAN CAPE

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In 1989, the memorable year when the Wall came down, a university student in Berlin on his early morning run finds a corpse lying on a park bench and alerts the authorities. This classic police-procedural scene opens an extraordinary novel, a masterwork that traces the fate of myriad Europeans - Hungarians, Jews, Germans, and Gypsies - across the treacherous years of the mid-twentieth century. The social and political circumstances of their lives may vary richly, their sexual and spiritual longings may seem to each of them entirely unique, yet Peter Nadas' magnificent tapestry unveils uncanny, reverberating parallels that link them across time and space. Three unusual men are at the heart of "Parallel Stories": Hans von Wolkenstein, whose German mother is linked to dark secrets of fascist-Nazi collaboration during the 1940s, Agost Lippay-Lehr, whose influential father has served Hungary's different political regimes for decades, and Andras Rott, who has his own dark record of dark activities abroad. They are friends in Budapest when we eventually meet them in the spring of 1961, a pivotal time in the postwar epoch and in their clandestine careers. But the richly detailed, dramatic memories and actions of these men, like those of their friends, lovers and family members, range from Berlin and Moscow to Switzerland and Holland, from the Mediterranean to the North Sea, and of course, across Hungary. The ever-daring, ever-original episodes of "Parallel Lives" explore the most intimate, most difficult human experiences in a prose glowing with uncommon clarity and also with mysterious uncertainty - as is characteristic of Nadas' subtle, spirited art. The web of extended dramas in "Parallel Stories" reaches not just forward to the transformative year of 1989 but back to the spring of 1939, with Europe trembling on the edge of war; to the bestial times of 1944-45, when Budapest was besieged, the final solution devastated Hungary's Jews, and the war came to an end; and to the cataclysmic Hungarian Revolution of October 1956. But there is much more to "Parallel Stories" than that: it is a daring, demanding, and very moving exploration of humanity at its most constrained and its most free.

A Commonsense Revolution Ezekiel Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The ability for three words to communicate so much has been born out through history and unleashed some of the most powerful revolutions the world has seen. A "Common Sense Revolution" by Senator Ben Murray-Bruce is also three words with the potential to fundamentally change the future of a country, but with more in common with the type of peaceful revolution created by Thatcher than Robespierre or Lenin. There have been many times when the words 'a new type of politics' have been uttered only to be a fleeting moment of optimism before everything reverts to type. However there is something remarkably fresh and new about how Ben Murray-Bruce has caught the public's imagination in Africa's most populous nation. He is not the 'common man', to do what he has done is indeed most uncommon, but he has managed to touch a nerve and communicate to the people of Nigeria in a way that has reached out to all irrespective of State or religion. Communication is not just about speeches, oratory prowess or, even in today's world, how well you tweet. It is a two-way street where it as important to listen as well as to speak. The very title of this book is testimony to that as it emerged from a trending hashtag, #commonsenserevolution that was created by the people of Nigeria in response to Ben Murray-Bruce's ongoing narrative on events based on his simple theme of: "I just want to make common sense". Ben Murray-Bruce heard the people and acted. And we can see that in how he addresses each issue where he combines leadership with responsiveness, to create quite a unique and powerful blend of communication. Time and time again he hits the bullseye across the nation, whether it is challenging Ministers to reduce government waste by, for example, not flying First Class or donating his Senatorial Clothing Allowance to impoverished women. These individual actions are not unrelated topical or tactical initiatives but are informed and driven by his very clear belief in the need for the very fabric of Nigerian society to change. At his speech at Silverbird Group's 35th Anniversary he made the case clearly and powerfully that the biggest division in Nigeria is not between North and South or between Muslim and Christian, but between Rich and Poor. With the peaceful transition of power in 2015 the people of Nigeria have seen that their vote can count, but unless they see the benefit that change will count for nothing. Ben Murray's Bruce's current contribution is to hold to account a Government that promised change so that the people's hopes and aspirations are not dashed once more on the rocks of 'politics as usual'. As has already been pointed out, Nigeria recently surpassed South Africa as the continent's largest economy. What is less widely known is that by 2019 it will be more than twice its size and will be one of the world's top 20 economies. Ben Murray-Bruce believes it is Common Sense that the common man should finally share in this prosperity and if not we will see a different type of Revolution that will make what happened in France over 200 years ago look like an amuse bouche. I have been to Nigeria 46 times and have been hugely impressed by the intelligence, ingenuity and exuberance of every Nigerian I meet, but who for so long has been manacled by a corrupt elite and ineffective government. And in Ben Murray-Bruce the people have been impressed by a man who they believe can help free them to realise their potential. Ben Murray-Bruce's vision is to create a Nigeria where every citizen will be judged not from the State they come from but where they are going. Ben

Financial Risk Forecasting Wiley

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Financial Risk Forecasting is a complete introduction to practical quantitative risk management, with a focus on market risk. Derived from the authors teaching notes and years spent training practitioners in risk management techniques, it brings together the three key disciplines of finance, statistics and modeling (programming), to provide a thorough grounding in risk management techniques. Written by renowned risk expert Jon Danielsson, the book begins with an introduction to financial markets and market prices, volatility clusters, fat tails and nonlinear dependence. It then goes on to present volatility forecasting with both univatiate and multivatiate methods, discussing the various methods used by industry, with a special focus on the GARCH family of models. The evaluation of the quality of forecasts is discussed in detail. Next, the main concepts in risk and models to forecast risk are discussed, especially volatility, value-at-risk and expected shortfall. The focus is both on risk in basic assets such as stocks and foreign exchange, but also calculations of risk in bonds and options, with analytical methods such as delta-normal VaR and duration-normal VaR and Monte Carlo simulation. The book then moves on to the evaluation of risk models with methods like backtesting, followed by a discussion on stress testing. The book concludes by focussing on the forecasting of risk in very large and uncommon events with extreme value theory and considering the underlying assumptions behind almost every risk model in practical use - that risk is exogenous - and what happens when those assumptions are violated. Every method presented brings together theoretical discussion and derivation of key equations and a discussion of issues in practical implementation. Each method is implemented in both MATLAB and R, two of the most commonly used mathematical programming languages for risk forecasting with which the reader can implement the models illustrated in the book. The book includes four appendices. The first introduces basic concepts in statistics and financial time series referred to throughout the book. The second and third introduce R and MATLAB, providing a discussion of the basic implementation of the software packages. And the final looks at the concept of maximum likelihood, especially issues in implementation and testing. The book is accompanied by a website - - which features downloadable code as used in the book.

It's All Going Terribly Wrong BENEFACTUM PUBLISHING

Who would have guessed in the 1960s that Michael Parker, a typical young Army officer, would turn into one of the most remarkable showmen of his generation? Michael Parker's creativity and originality - all too often achieved in the face of stifling bureaucracy - along with an ability to organise down to the last detail - meant he was in continuous demand to mastermind all kinds of events such as most of the British royal jubilees and birthday celebrations for The Queen, the Queen Mother. Other events included London's G7 conference, royal weddings in countries such as Jordan, victory commemorations, charity events and some of the world's largest military tattoos - Berlin, Edinburgh and the London Tournament. He records his triumphs and disasters and the inside story of some spectacular c**k-ups - although to the spectators and television audiences all might have seemed fine. The pundits thought The Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002 would be a non-event - "Who would come?" they said. But Michael Parker had no doubt that he could lay on a show that was worthy of the Queen - and of Great Britain. He was right and proved the critics wrong - 2 million people flocked down the Mall to Buckingham Palace to enjoy the celebrations he had helped organise. Some 25 years earlier his complex plans for the Queen's 1977 Silver Jubilee bonfires definitely did not go to plan - much to the Queen's amusement - and as for those fireworks in Hyde Park to celebrate Prince Charles and Diana's wedding - that's another story is the escaping python at the Berlin Tattoo.
