This book focuses primarily on the advantages and implications of sustainable bioenergy production in terms of ensuring a more sustainable world despite its growing energy demands. It addresses a new concept that focuses on the interactions between different uses of agricultural land (for example, agriculture for food, forage or energy and nature conservation) and their ecological, economic and societal impacts. This research concept provides new insights into the competition for resources and the synergies between different land uses. This book seeks to improve people’s understanding of bioenergy’s potentials for the future. It will be of interest not only to those involved in sustainable energy, but also to environmental planners, agriculture and soil specialists, and environmental policy-makers.

Eine Entwicklung ist nachhaltig, wenn sie den Bed�rfnissen der heutigen Generationen entspricht, ohne dass sie die M�glichkeit der zuk�nftigen Generationen, ihre Bed�rfnisse zu befriedigen, gef�hrdet. Klaus Mathis verfolgt einen interdisziplin�ren Ansatz und leuchtet die Thematik der nachhaltigen Entwicklung und Generationengerechtigkeit aus rechtlicher, �konomischer und philosophischer Sicht aus. Angesichts der globalen Tragweite des Themas wird dabei nicht nur die schweizerische, sondern auch die internationale Debatte abgebildet. Die Publikation richtet sich deshalb an ein breites Publikum aus verschiedenen Disziplinen im gesamten deutschsprachigen Raum. Dabei sind aus rechtsvergleichender Perspektive insbesondere die mannigfaltige rechtliche Verankerung der nachhaltigen Entwicklung in der schweizerischen Bundesverfassung und ihre Umsetzung in der Gesetzgebung und Rechtsanwendung von Bedeutung.

In March and April of 1944, Gestapo gunmen killed fifty POWs—a brutal act in defiance of international law and the Geneva Convention. This is the true story of the men who hunted them down. The mass breakout of seventy-six Allied airmen from the infamous Stalag Luft III became one of the greatest tales of World War II, immortalized in the film The Great Escape. But where Hollywood’s depiction fades to black, another incredible story begins . . . Not long after the escape, fifty of the recaptured airmen were taken to desolate killing fields throughout Germany and shot on the direct orders of Hitler. When the nature of these killings came to light, Churchill’s government swore to pursue justice at any cost. A revolving team of military police, led by squadron leader Francis P. McKenna, was dispatched to Germany seventeen months after the killings to pick up a trail long gone cold. Amid the chaos of postwar Germany, divided between American, British, French, and Russian occupiers, McKenna and his men brought twenty-one Gestapo killers to justice in a hunt that spanned three years and took them into the darkest realms of Nazi fanaticism. In Human Game, Simon Read tells this harrowing story as never before. Beginning inside Stalag Luft III and the Nazi High Command, through the grueling three-year manhunt, and into the final close of the case more than two decades later, Read delivers a clear-eyed and meticulously researched account of this often-overlooked saga of hard-won justice.
Having spent the early thirties in far-left groups opposing Fascism, in 1937 Georges Bataille abandoned this approach so as to transfer the struggle onto the mythological plane, founding two groups with this aim in mind. The College of Sociology gave lectures attended by major figures from the Parisian intelligentsia - intended to reveal the hidden undercurrents within a society that appeared to be bordering on collapse. The texts in this book comprise lectures given to the College; essays from the Acephale journal and a large cache of the internal papers of the secret society of Acephale.
This study on the genesis and formation of the scholastic concept of transcendental unity shows how gradually in the development of thinking, the notion of ‘the one’, due to its original relationship to being, was conceived as transcendental.
Despite Asia's protracted economic troubles, the region is poised to recover and perhaps become stronger than ever. This timely work identifies the major challenges facing Asia's Four Tigers (Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, and Hong Kong), Japan, China, and their Southeast Asian neighbors (Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines) as the region increases it role and stature on the world stage. Highly regarded Asia policy makers and opinion shapers consider such key questions as: What is the appropriate response to China's ascent? Are there prospects for U.S.-Asian partnerships (in such areas as the environment)? Is economic cooperation between both sides of the Pacific realistic? How can Americans gain from Asia's attempts to rebuild her institutions? And will East Asia and the United States adjust to a multi-polar security and economic milieu?

An exploration of 99 classic myths of India from an entirely non-Western paradigm that provides a fresh understanding of the Hindu spiritual landscape • Compares and contrasts Indian mythology with the stories of the Bible, ancient Egypt, Greece, Scandinavia, and Mesopotamia • Looks at the evolution of Indian narratives and their interpretations over the millennia • Demonstrates how the mythology, rituals, and art of ancient India are still vibrant today and inform the contemporary generation From the blood-letting Kali to the mysterious Ganesha, the Hindu spiritual landscape is populated by characters that find no parallel in the Western spiritual world. Indian Mythology explores the rich tapestry of these characters within 99 classic myths, showing that the mythological world of India can be best understood when we move away from a Western, monotheistic mindset and into the polytheistic world of Hindu traditions. Featuring 48 artistic renderings of important mythological figures from across India, the author unlocks the mysteries of the narratives, rituals, and artwork of ancient India to reveal the tension between world-affirming and world-rejecting ideas, between conformism and contradiction, between Shiva and Vishnu, Krishna and Rama, Gauri and Kali. This groundbreaking book opens the door to the unknown and exotic, providing a glimpse into the rich mythic tradition that has empowered millions of human beings for centuries.

"Scepter und Hammer" wurde 1879/1880 im 4. Jahrgang der Zeitschrift "F�r alle Welt" erstmals ver�ffentlicht.Den Inhalt nachzuerz�hlen ist fast unm�glich, da sich eine verwirrende F�lle von Neben- und Randhandlungen sowie nach und nach entdeckten Vorgeschichten und R�ckblenden auftut.Hauptheld ist jedoch Max Brandauer, Sohn des norl�ndischen Hofschmieds, der die Verbrechen des Herzogs von Raumburg, der mit s�derl�ndischer Hilfe einen Aufstand plant, zu vereiteln sucht. Nebenbei stellt sich heraus, dass es einen Kinder-Ringtausch gegeben hat, so dass Max Brandauer eigentlich der Sohn des K�nigs ist und darum - da von hohem Adel - die Prinzessin Asta von S�derland, seine gro�e Liebe, heiraten kann.In einem l�ngeren Einschub wird erz�hlt, wie der Zigeuner Katombo in �gypten zum Gro�admiral des Khediven wird. Mit seiner Hilfe wird eine s�derl�ndische Invasion in Norland verhindert und der Frieden durch die Hochzeit zwischen Max und Asta gesichert.
