The recent economic crisis in Greece has, paradoxically enough, created better conditions for tourism. The Greeks are painfully aware that tourism is their best-functioning remaining industry. They value the visitor as never before, treat them with a warmth and courtesy that exceeds what you ll find in other parts of Europe. And more people are therefore coming here in unprecedented numbers. To bring the current message of Greek tourism to a reading public, we've called upon the research and writing talents of one of America's foremost travel journalists. Stephen Brewer has been writing travel guides for almost three decades. As an editor and writer, he has focused not just on the Frommer guides but on European coverage for such magazines as "Esquire," "Connoisseur" and "Geo." In "Frommer's Athens and the Greek Islands," he brings tremendous insight into how to best approach and understand both the famed and lesser-known (but still fascinating) historic sights of Athens and the adjoining Peloponnese, as well as the recreational resorts and life of the enchanting Greek islands. The book contains: -Helpful maps, including a handy pull-out map -A 16-page photo guide -Exact pricing so there s never any ugly surprises -Opinionated reviews of historic sights and other attractions, hotels, restaurants, "

If it's Ancient Greece you're interested in, our authors will guide you from the Acropolis to the islands (the geographical and spiritual center of the Cyclades). In the 21st century, they'll point you toward the best resorts, hotels, nightlife and shopping in Athens and the islands. "Greeks may not live to eat, but they certainly take what they eat, and how it is prepared very seriously," says our (well-fed) author, who takes you from kafeneion (coffee house) to ouzeri to psistaria (for grilled meats), tavernas and beyond. An entire chapter gives you a rundown on cruising the Greek Islands, from picking the right cruise, to budgeting, getting ready to go, and a summary of some of the ships, from large to small, that ply the Mediterranean. Opinionated reviews. No bland descriptions and lukewarm recommendations. Our expert writers are passionate about their destinations--they tell it like it is in an engaging and helpful way. Exact prices listed for every establishment and activity--no other guides offer such detailed, candid reviews of hotels and restaurants. We include the very best, but also emphasize moderately priced choices for real people. User-friendly features including star ratings and special icons to point readers to great finds, excellent values, insider tips, best bets for kids, special moments, and overrated experiences.
Take a walking tour through the mighty Acropolis, sunbathe on the golden sands of Mykonos' Paradise beach and enjoy tender lamb kebabs on the island of Crete. Frommer's details the very best values of Athens, the islands, and the classical sites. Maps. Index.
Neuere Entwicklungen der Entscheidungstheorie, die in der deutschsprachigen Literatur bislang noch kaum Beachtung fanden, sind Gegenstand dieses Buchs. Es geht um Alternativen zur subjektiven Erwartungsnutzentheorie, die der Erfassung intransitiver Präferenzen und der Berücksichtigung von Ergebnisplausibilitäten, Ambiguität, potentieller Enttäuschung und potentiellem Bedauern dienen. Im Mittelpunkt steht ein axiomatischer Ansatz, der die Entwicklung leicht verständlicher Axiomensysteme und die Lösung einiger bislang noch ungelöster Axiomatisierungsprobleme erlaubt. Die ausführlich dargestellten Beweise sind in Anhänge zu den einzelnen Kapiteln ausgelagert.
