Turning Points of the Common Law (Hamlyn Lectures)

In this book, based on the 48th series of Hamlyn Lectures, Lord Cooke focuses on four great cases which were all major turning points in the development of the common law. In each instance he examines the effect at the time, subsequent developments in case law and academic opinion, and the respective advantages of decisions in Commonwealth jurisdictions such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The cases cover the areas of public law, crime, tort and company law. The analysis of each is that of a practising judge interested primarily in how "leading judicial craftsmen have solved problems".  

Sunderland Jewry at War

A most interesting series of documents recently came up for auction in Israel. I was privileged to be shown them and realised their importance in the history of Jewish Sunderland. During the Second World War (1939-1945) most of the Jewish youth both men and women were called up for military service. The minister at this time was Rabbi S Toperoff. He took it upon himself to edit and send a monthly bulletin to every Jewish service man and woman from Sunderland throughout the world containing local news and also letters from all so that everybody had some contact not only with home but also with each other. Rabbi Toperoff enlisted some local correspondents to help him. This unique collection is a full series and gives a most wonderful insight not only to the serving men and women but also to the local Jewish life in Sunderland during the War Years.

F'd Companies: Spectacular Dot-com Flameouts

Not long ago, the world was awash with venture capital in search of the next Yahoo! or No product, no experience, no technology, no business plan -- no problem. You could still get $40 million from investors to start up your dot-com. And you could get people to work around the clock for stock options and the promise of millions. Then, around April 2000, it all came crashing down. Smart investors, esteemed analysts, and the business press found themselves asking: * Who knew people wouldn't rush out to trade in their U.S. dollars for a virtual currency called Flooz? * Who knew people wouldn't blow all their Flooz on a used car from the guys at * And who needed a used car from when they could just sit at home and have 40-lb. bags of dog food delivered to them by a sock puppet? F'd Companies captures the waste, greed, and human stupidity of more than 100 dot-com companies. Written in Philip J. Kaplan's popular, cynical style, these profiles are filled with colorful anecdotes, factoids, and information unavailable anywhere else. Together they form a gleeful encyclopedia of how not to run a business. They also capture a truly remarkable period of history. F'd Companies is required reading for everyone involved in the "new economy" -- assuming your severance check can cover the cost.

Feedthrough: Webster's Timeline History, 1969 - 2005

Webster's bibliographic and event-based timelines are comprehensive in scope, covering virtually all topics, geographic locations and people. They do so from a linguistic point of view, and in the case of this book, the focus is on "Feedthrough," including when used in literature (e.g. all authors that might have Feedthrough in their name). As such, this book represents the largest compilation of timeline events associated with Feedthrough when it is used in proper noun form. Webster's timelines cover bibliographic citations, patented inventions, as well as non-conventional and alternative meanings which capture ambiguities in usage. These furthermore cover all parts of speech (possessive, institutional usage, geographic usage) and contexts, including pop culture, the arts, social sciences (linguistics, history, geography, economics, sociology, political science), business, computer science, literature, law, medicine, psychology, mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology and other physical sciences. This "data dump" results in a comprehensive set of entries for a bibliographic and/or event-based timeline on the proper name Feedthrough, since editorial decisions to include or exclude events is purely a linguistic process. The resulting entries are used under license or with permission, used under "fair use" conditions, used in agreement with the original authors, or are in the public domain.

Simple Sentences

The phenomenon of substitution failure is a longstanding focus of discussion for philosophers of language. Substitution failure occurs when a change from one co-referential name to another (e.g. from "Superman" to "Clark Kent") affects the truth-value of a sentence. Jennifer Saul has shown that this can occur even in the simplest of sentences. She presents the first full-length treatment of this puzzling feature of language, and explores its implications for the theory of reference and names, and for the methodology of semantics.

Insolvenzgründe und Vermeidungsstrategien in mittelständischen Unternehmen (German Edition)

Diplomarbeit, die am 27.05.1998 erfolgreich an einer Internationale Wirtschaftshochschule in Deutschland eingereicht wurde. Einleitung: Die Entwicklung der Insolvenzen hat zur Jahreswende 1996/97 zum fünften Mal infolge einen Höhepunkt erreicht, für das Jahr 1997 wird allgemein mit einem neuen Rekord gerechnet. Da die Ursachen für Unternehmenszusammenbrüche in der Regel drei bis vier Jahre zurückreichen, kann diese Entwicklung als eine Spätfolge der Rezession nach dem Auslaufen des vereinigungsbedingten Booms zu Beginn der 90er Jahre bezeichnet werden. Ins Zentrum der öffentlichen Aufmerksamkeit rücken Unternehmenspleiten schlaglichtartig meist dann, wenn große Unternehmen betroffen sind: der Mittelstand mit seiner hohen Ausstrahlungskraft auf Wachstum und Arbeitsmarkt steht eher im Schatten. Dabei sind mit jedem Konkurs volks- und betriebswirtschaftliche Kosten verbunden, die von Forderungsausfällen der Kreditgeber - Banken und Lieferanten - über die Entwertung der eingesetzten Faktoren inklusive des betriebsspezifischen Humankapitals, bis hin zu Suchkosten entlassener Arbeitskräfte und einer dauerhaften existentiellen Belastung der gescheiterten Unternehmer reichen. Diese Arbeit erhebt keinen Anspruch eine umfassende Darstellung aller Gründe, Ursachen und Strategien zur Vermeidung von Insolvenzen zu bieten. Sie soll nur eine Einführung in die überaus komplexe Thematik sein und die Hauptgründe und Möglichkeiten aufzeigen. Aufgrund der hier gebotenen Kürze ließ sich leider nur ein allgemeiner Abriß erstellen, der jedoch nach Möglichkeit alle Teilgebiete streift und zumindest ansatzweise behandelt. Am Beginn der vorliegenden Diplomarbeit, nach der Vorbemerkung in Abschnitt I, im Abschnitt II, steht eine Bestandsaufnahme der Insolvenzentwicklung in Deutschland in den Jahren 1995 bis 1997. Dort sind auch die Entwicklungen und Folgen für den Arbeitsmarkt und einzelne Wirtschaftsbereiche kurz aufgezeigt. Aus Platzgründen sind alle Tabellen im Anhang I zu fin...

The more words and images they can recognize early, will help to form brain pathways and stimulate further learning. After a child has acquired a good vocabulary of 100-150 words, they can focus on learning phonics, which are also very important.The large text books are perfect for a classroom setting during story time, when teachers read out loud in class, so the children can see the text from the last row. Using these books with high repetition and a lot of praise will start your child in the right direction to enjoy a lifetime of reading! No matter what learning difficulty or special need your child has (Down Syndrome, Autism, DiGeorge, ADHD, ocular issues, dyslexia, cross dominance, Cerebral Palsy, etc..) keep giving your child lots of input with high repetition to help create brain pathways and retention of information. Directions: When you are reading the book make sure you are in a quiet place. Use your finger to track under each word. The flash cards should be read very quickly. Do not ever quiz your child. Make this time really fun and encouraging. Next when your child is ready play the Word Match Game. If your child is older or if your young child begins recognizing some of the words they may be ready to play the Word Match Game. You must first either make a photo copy of the Word Match cards or cut out the pages in the book. Next cut the page with the dotted lines. Then hand a word to your child and ask them to match the word to the board page.

Diary, Aug-Sep 1666 (Webster's Spanish Thesaurus Edition)

This edition is written in English. However, there is a running Spanish thesaurus at the bottom of each page for the more difficult English words highlighted in the text. There are many editions of Diary, Aug-Sep 1666. This edition would be useful if you would like to enrich your Spanish-English vocabulary, whether for self-improvement or for preparation in advanced of college examinations. Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to ?difficult, yet commonly used? English words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in Spanish, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English without using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. This edition is helpful to Spanish-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL® or TOEIC® preparation program. Students who are actively building their vocabularies in Spanish or English may also find this useful for Advanced Placement® (AP®) tests. TOEFL®, TOEIC®, AP® and Advanced Placement® are trademarks of the Educational Testing Service which has neither reviewed nor endorsed this book. This book is one of a series of Webster's paperbacks that allows the reader to obtain more value from the experience of reading.

Hidden in shadows, he protects her from ancient assassins...and himself. — I've awakened from a horrific crash to a churlish highlander, I swear stepping right off the cover of my paperback.

The Identity Self-Descriptions of Ex-Smokers: A Q-Methodological Study

In many smokers, cigarettes constitute play a crucial role in identity development and one's sense of self. Smoking has been described as a means to cope with stress and to control mood. However, smoking has a variety of disadvantages and carries significant health risks for the smoker and the people around. Quitting smoking has therefore many physiological benefits. However, what happens psychologically when this "habit" is gone? Is an ex-smoker a different person after giving up smoking? Which influence has quitting smoking on the perceptions of one's own identity? Or is it just a behaviour that is no big deal to change? To answer these interesting questions and -at the same time- to preserve the diversity of experiences, Q-methodology was applied. By doing so it is possible to look at the manifold ways ex-smokers describe their process of quitting smoking. This book is addressed to health care providers and smoking cessation counsellors but also to a more general audience interested in health behaviour and Q-methodology.  

Louis I. Kahn: Towards the Zero Degree of Concrete, 1960-1974

Through sheer determination and courage, Kahn has researched the nature of concrete in the form of precast, cast in place or blocks. Each of his renowned works in exposed concrete, such as the Yale Art Gallery, the Richards Laboratories, the Bath House, the Salk Institute, the National Assembly, the Kimbell Museum, the Exeter Library and the Yale Center for British Art, is itself an important chapter in the history of architecture for the exploration into concrete?s formal expression, beyond the lessons of Le Corbusier. Kahn?s obsession with concrete?s fabrication processes, the formwork and the mix-design is systematically examined in two volumes. They illustrate Kahn?s vision using documents that have never been revealed in other essays, drawing heavily from original sketches, plans, specifications, worksite photographs, and correspondences with collaborators, engineers, technicians and contractors. The first volume Exposed Concrete and Hollow Stones focuses on the first ten-year period of Kahn's research on concrete. Moving through the many construction systems experienced by Kahn, from the discovery of exposed concrete in the form of béton brut at the Yale Art Gallery, to the precast and poured-in-place techniques, to the values of joint, growth and ornament, the work culminates in the reconstruction of the artistic and technical characteristics of two great worksite, the Richards Laboratories and the First Unitarian Church and School. The second volume, Towards the Zero Degree of Concrete, covers the following fourteen years and leads the reader along Kahn?s path to the true 'nature of concrete', focusing on his main techniques and discoveries such as the 'liquid stone' of the Salk Institute, the 'smooth finish' at Bryn Mawr and the concept of 'monolithic' at the Yale Center for British Art.

An Uncommon Vocabulary

There are two activities in life that are essential to one?s happiness. The first is to have one?s day (to explore, engage and enjoy life), and the second is to say one?s say (to say the words to oneself and/or to others that one needs to say). ?An Uncommon Vocabulary? is an exercise in saying one?s say. Simply put, it is an A to Z book of common words and phrases that are described in a manner better suited to them in the opinion of the author. The concepts described herein are working definitions, definitions that can be brought to mind to facilitate one?s thinking and actions within a given set of circumstances. When a working definition is properly occasioned (brought to mind at the appropriate time and in the appropriate circumstances), advantageous effects flow from it. In this way, one?s personal narrative is made richer and more rewarding, and one becomes more coherent and positive in dealing with everyday events.

The 4-H Harvest: Sexuality and the State in Rural America (Politics and Culture in Modern America)

4-H, the iconic rural youth program run by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, has enrolled more than 70 million Americans over the last century. As the first comprehensive history of the organization, The 4-H Harvest tracks 4-H from its origins in turn-of-the-century agricultural modernization efforts, through its role in the administration of federal programs during the New Deal and World War II, to its status as an instrument of international development in Cold War battlegrounds like Vietnam and Latin America.In domestic and global settings, 4-H's advocates dreamed of transforming rural economies, communities, and families. Organizers believed the clubs would bypass backward patriarchs reluctant to embrace modern farming techniques. In their place, 4-H would cultivate efficient, capital-intensive farms and convince rural people to trust federal expertise. The modern 4-H farm also featured gender-appropriate divisions of labor and produced healthy, robust children. To retain the economic potential of the "best" youth, clubs insinuated state agents at the heart of rural family life. By midcentury, the vision of healthy 4-H'ers on family farms advertised the attractiveness of the emerging agribusiness economy.With rigorous archival research, Gabriel N. Rosenberg provocatively argues that public acceptance of the political economy of agribusiness hinged on federal efforts to establish a modern rural society through effective farming technology and techniques as well as through carefully managed gender roles, procreation, and sexuality. The 4-H Harvest shows how 4-H, like the countryside it often symbolizes, is the product of the modernist ambition to efficiently govern rural economies, landscapes, and populations.

Names, the initial way we meet someone, from the traditional or religious to the “made up? and even controversial, are fully explained. Each entry includes not only alternative spellings, derivation, and meaning but also an affirmation chosen to align with a name?s background. These are culled from sources as diverse as the Bible, Koran, and Buddhist sutras: multicultural proverbs and Shakespeare: and thinkers from Alice Walker and Basho to Rumi and Muhammad Ali. Whether they want to honor ancestors, recognize the essence of their child, or convey their parental hopes, this book helps parents greet and bless their baby with heartfelt meaning.

The Captain's Concubine: Love, Honor, and Violence in Renaissance Tuscany

On March 21, 1578, Holy Thursday, cavalier Fabrizio Bracciolini charged that he had been ambushed, slashed, stoned, and left bleeding in a Pistoia street by fellow cavalier Mariotto Cellesi and four accomplices. In The Captain's Concubine: Love, Honor, and Violence in Renaissance Tuscany, Donald Weinstein studies the lengthy investigation of the incident, bares the motives of the actors, and follows the ensuing trial. Weinstein examines the roles of the patricians, merchants, shopkeepers, weavers, priests, and prostitutes who served as audience, bit players, and chorus in this Renaissance street-theater drama. When Fabrizio is revealed to be the lover of Chiara, the concubine of Mariotto's father, questioning moves away from the street fight itself to the right of the defendants to take revenge for violated family honor: accuser becomes accused, and a simple case of assault turns into a community's discussion of its most tenacious values.Lurching from comedy to tragedy and neglected even by local chroniclers, the Holy Thursday incident involved issues of honor, family, religion, gender relations, and power familiar to social historians of late medieval and early modern Europe. For the Medici ruler of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, the Holy Thursday affair presented a dilemma: bound to regard duels and street fights as threats to an all too fragile public order and a challenge to his sovereignty, Francesco I nevertheless respected and fostered the aristocratic code of honor, family loyalty, and chivalric valor to which the Cellesi appealed. How these contradictions were accommodated is a crucial part of the story Weinstein tells.

PREFACE At this time of unrest, created largely by the upheaval of war, when homes have been broken up and minds become un- balanced through physical and mental uneasiness, Peace, returning to the world like the dove to the Ark, finds a place of repose--above the breakers-in our homes and our country. It becomes the interest of the civilized world to reconstruct with what is best at hand, but with care not to discard the fundamental principles of Christianity - otherwise the structure would be of a most flimsy character, Divorce, which has invaded many countries, under the aegis of civil legislation, ia a most pernicious evil-anti-national and anti-Christian. The author of this little volume has gathered some facts and statistics from the records of divorce in France and in the United States and come to the conclusion of attempting to nullify its effects wheresoever it has asserts itself and, above all, of defending our own country and firesides against its ravages. With the intention of awakenins an interest in men of thought and influence who could join in cornbatting this crying evil, he sounds this clarion call in defence of country, faith, nationality, our homes and society in general. Amongst the countless benefactions of God to humanity one of the most important is the nuptial bond it is the gift of heaven, the charm of earth, the joy of the present, the prom- ise of the future, the innocence of enjoyment, the sanctity of passion, the sacrament of love. The sIender curtain that shades its shrine has for its purity the whiteness of the mountain snow and for its protection the texture of the moun- tain adamant. That national sanctuary is being invaded by the polluted spirit of prayerless, heartless, remorseless divorce, and today religion defied, morals violated and the canons of God foully spurned invoke the protection of Christian men and women. Admirable. as this little work is, so exact in facts, so irrefutable in its principles and so impeccable in its logic, still its influence is circumscribed by the fact of its publication in French, While the good it may effect is unquestionable, still I it can only reach a limited number of readers and they are of those less in need today of its warnings. That the vast English-speaking public, both in Canada. and the United States, may be enabled to benefit by it and to realize the magnitude of the menace it indicates, it has been decided to translate it into the English language. If this version of Fathcr Forcsts timely and exceedingly. Important work can only raise an additional barrier against the flood of misery and wrong that now threatens the whole social worId, the work will not be in vain and the translator will feel that his labour has been repaid many fold. May our homes, our rising generation, our country, our Christian civilization be protected against this phantom of Evil, this curse of the present and moral danger of the future is the desire that wells up from the inmost fountains of every truly patriotic heart.  

Thomas Hardy: Imagining Imagination Hardy's Poetry and Fiction

The author of this text offers close readings of Thomas Hardy's poetry and novels, regarding these as expressive forms for the discovery of everyday and professional acts of imagination. The themes and forms examined here include narrative, conversation, gossip, memory, gender, poetry of place and imaginative threshold. Altogether the study is a contribution to theories of reflexivity, expanding and revising some of the analysis provided by Professor Hardy in "The Appropriate Form" and "Tellers and Listeners".

Shattered Nerves: How Science Is Solving Modern Medicine's Most Perplexing Problem

Once the stuff of science fiction, neural prosthetics are now a reality. Research and technology are creating implants that enable the deaf to hear, the blind to see, and the paralyzed to move. Shattered Nerves takes us on a journey into a new medical frontier, where sophisticated, state-of-the-art medical devices repair and restore failed sensory and motor systems. In a compelling narrative that reveals the intimate relationship between technology and the physicians, scientists, and patients who bring it to life, Victor D. Chase explores groundbreaking developments in neural technology. Through personal interviews and extensive research, Chase introduces us to the people and devices that are restoring shattered lives, from implants that enable the paralyzed to stand, walk, feed, and groom themselves, to those that restore bladder and bowel control, and even sexual function. Signals from the brains of paralyzed people are captured and transformed to allow them to operate computers. Brain implants hold the potential to resolve psychiatric illnesses and to restore the ability to form memories in damaged brains. This timely and important book also explores troubling boundaries between restoration and enhancement, where implants could conceivably endow the able-bodied with superhuman capabilities. Chase concludes this fascinating book with a provocative question: Just because we can, does that mean we should?

Naval Battles of the Napoleonic Wars: Cape St. Vincent, the Nile, Cadiz, Copenhagen, Trafalgar Others

The wars against Napoleonic France and Spain in the early years of the nineteenth century have long fascinated historians and casual readers who are enchanted by the colour and romance of those incredible times. No aspect of the period has generated more interest and enthusiasm than the war at sea-fought between great naval commanders whose names from reverberated through time and who stood upon the decks of equally famous ships of the line in heroic battles. Here are the true life events that so inspired C. S. Forrester-and those who later followed his tradition of naval adventures to appeal to a new and enthusiastic audience. However, nothing in fiction is more remarkable than the actual events related in this book. Here are the true stories of the Victory, the Temeraire, the Orient and many other iconic vessels, and their famous and inspiring feats of naval warfare at Copenhagen, the Nile, Cadiz, Trafalgar and many other battles that helped shape the modern world.  

Robert and the Hairy Disaster

"I need you to cut my hair," said Robert. "No way!" said Paul, jumping up. " I don't know how to cut hair!" "You've got to. It's a matter of life and dealth, almost. I won't go back to school tomorrow unless my hair is cut. Everyone is laughing at me. If I tell my mom, she'll make me go to Ernesto's. You've got to help me. You're my best friend." Robert opened his desk drawer and took out a pair of scissors. He held them out to Paul.  

Communication: Key to Your Marriage: A Practical Guide to Creatin a Happy, Fulfilling Relationship

Many specialists in family relations say the number-one problem in marriages today is not sex, money or children, but lack of communication between husband and wife. H. Norman Wright tackles this dilemma in the Christian book on couples communication. Presenting insightful ways to reduce marital conflict, manage anger, build one another's self-esteem and just plain listen to one another, Wright provides couples with the resources to understand each other at new and deeper levels. Ideal for married and pre-married couples, counselors, lay counselors, mentors and pastors, this classic has been fully revised and updated for marriages in the new millennium.  

The Fathers of the Church: Saint John Chrysostom : Apologist

St. John Chrysostom delivered his "Homilies on Genesis" sometime between A.D. 385 and A.D. 388, while still a priest at Antioch. In the homilies in this volume - the last of three - Chrysostom concludes his examination of the lives and virtues of the Old Testament patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph as recounted in the last three chapters of Genesis. Known for his eloquent preaching, Chrysostom delivered these final 22 homilies after Pentecost. His motive for examining the accounts of the lives of the patriarchs is to show how the just forebears of the Israelites, in a time when both the Law and the Gospel were yet unpreached were able to live Christian lives with only simple trust in God and the balanced, almost ingenuous, manners of antiquity. His interest in the events and characters of Genesis is largely moral, even moralistic: he tends to see Scripture as hagiography. His style of commentary, although not really thorough exegesis, arises out of his deep conviction of the divine inspiration of Scripture, hence the habitual attention to detail, "not idly or to no purpose" being his frequent comment on the precision of the text. As an exegete, Chrysostom may seem disappointing to those grounded in the methods of modern biblical scholarship, since he largely ignores any sense of Scripture other than the literal and is generally unaware of how to resolve difficulties and appreciate subtleties that a knowledge of the original text would provide. What he lacks in scientific accuracy, however, he more than compensates for with his earnest practice of pastoral care. This final volume of the homilies includes a general index for these volumes and an index of biblical citations, the latter indicating the rich scriptural diet Chrysostom's congregation - who came daily for his homilies - enjoyed.

The Amber Necklace

The Amber Necklace is a story based on the final Christmas of a woman who had mastered the French language: attended symphonies and operas: stitched her own draperies: sculpted and fired figurines of foxes and raccoons: made an elaborate German-themed doll: sewed her own traveling wardrobe: painted flowers on her bedroom wall: sketched and wrote verses for her own Christmas cards: cooked for dinner parties: and loved to dig in the dirt in the early spring. Totally alive and infectiously passing on that enthusiasm to everyone she met, Claire was truly a remarkable woman whose recipes for Russian tea and Cheese Strata are used even today-not to mention her tips for enjoying an opera or properly pouring tea. In The Amber Necklace Claire exquisitely describes the natural process by which amber is formed, and, unknown to her, she paints a far greater picture of the golden amber in a person's live as that life becomes a finished product.

Adolf Wilhelm: Kleine Schriften: Abhandlung II: Abhandlungen und Beitrage zur griechischen Inschriftenkunde, Teil 3 (Sitzungsberichte der Phil.-Hist. Klasse) (German Edition)

One of the greatest epigraphists of this century was Adolf Wilhelm, who died on August 10, 1950. His highly reputed creative power was not reflected in extensive corpus works or large books but rather in hundreds of rather smaller articles, indeed in part very short individual contributions distributed over a wide range of publication locations. Adolf Wilhelm's investigations, readings and commentaries are testimony to a highly significant academic capacity, the like of which has rarely seen since. But precisely this manner of short publication in at times extremely remote places represents a major handicap to any epigraphic, ancient history and antiquity research. In this way, a large amount of material is thoroughly insufficiently known to the intentional academic community.The reprint of these "Short Writings" by Adolf Wilhelm thus represents a major need for the present. Since as early as 1953, for instance, Hermann Bengtson, one of the leading German ancient historians, has been saying (most recently in "Einfuhrung in die Alte Geschichte", Munich, Beck 1969, p. 161): "It would be very welcome from the point of view of research if a publisher could now be found for the scattered works of Ulrich Wilckens, Adolf Wilhelm, Anton von Premerstein and others."\n\nThe former Zentralantiquariat der DDR in Leipzig published five part-volumes in the years 1974 to 1985, but was dissolved without successor following the political changes. These part volumes are:\nSection I: Academic Writings on Greek Epigraphy, parts 1-3\nSection II: Essays and Contributions on Greek Epigraphy, parts 1-2 \nThere still remain roughly 174 articles, whose total of approximately 2000 pages will probably take up 3 volumes. Section II is now continued in the present volume. It should be noted that the published material (epigraphs) and interpretations are neither outdated nor will they ever become outdated.\n\nWith this project, there is an agreement with the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences (Dr. Klaus Hallof of the Inscriptiones Graecae): Dr. Hallof's wife, Dr. Luise Hallof, is currently working on the indexes for all the previous and planned volumes.  

The Destroying Angel

1912. Vance, American screenwriter, short story writer and novelist, begins The Destroying Angel: Then I'm to understand there's no hope for me? I'm afraid not...Greyerson said reluctantly, sympathy in his eyes. None whatever. The verdict was thus brusquely emphasized by Hartt, one of the two consulting specialists. Having spoken, he glanced at his watch, then at the face of his colleague, Bushnell, who contented himself with a tolerant waggle of his head, apparently meant to imply that the subject of their deliberations really must be reasonable: anybody who willfully insists on footing the measures of life with a defective constitution for a partner has no logical excuse for being reluctant to pay the Piper.

Civil war in the American workplace

Civil War In The American Workplace is a book that appeals to organization leaders, managers and employees. In Dr. Rosene?s extensive business consultations, she has identified employee work conflicts as the main reason employees do not perform up to their ability. Employee negativity adversely impacts organization ability to compete and survive the 21st century economic challenges. Adding to the worker negativity challenge, business leaders and professionals tend to be stymied by worker conflicts. The challenge facing business and professional leaders is they must find ways to understand the origins of employee conflict before they can unlock the keys to productive and positive employees. Leaders and business professionals applying correct motivators for their workers will create a willingness among their employee groups to become high producers. Civil War In The American Workplace is just the business tool for leaders and professionals, to better understand their worker?s preferred behavioral styles, and thus their beliefs as applied to the workplace. When business leaders understand their employee preferred behavioral styles, they can take the mystery out of work conflict. Business leaders and professionals who possess the knowledge for resolving work conflicts found in this book will be those individuals who will drive organizations that thrive in these tumultuous economic times.
