Excerpt from How to Play the Game of Skat In the pronunciation of Skat, following the German spelling, there will probably arise an inclination to make the "a" in the word short, whereas it is long, like the "a" in "Father." The derivation of the term Skat is difficult to determine. In its present form (as played to day) it is about fifteen years old, though the basis of the game is very much older. There are many games of cards where the points are counted as in Skat, and as many others where the Knaves play important parts. There are technical terms special to every game, which are part and parcel of it, and these exist in Skat. Such particular names had better be retained as far as is possible, but the German names of the cards themselves, we insist should have their English designation allotted to them, otherwise confusion would follow.

In der Geschäftswelt gibt es noch immer keine durchgängige Harmonie und Fairness zwischen den Geschlechtern. Dabei verfügen Frauen über weitaus mehr soziale Fähigkeiten als Männer, und weibliche Eigenschaften wie Kommunikationsstärke, Flexibilität und Teamgeist gelten als Erfolgsfaktoren der Zukunft.

Sie dürfen aber keinesfalls nach diesen Regeln mitspielen, sondern müssen sich ihre eigenen schaffen, nach denen dann gemeinsam gespielt wird. In diesem Buch erfährt die Frau in Führungsposition, wie sie ihre femininen Fähigkeiten in die maskuline Geschäftswelt einbringt, und wie sie durch Entfaltung ihres „weiblichen Radars“ ihre Abteilung oder ihr Unternehmen bereichern und zum Erfolg führen kann – selbstbewusst, mit Freude und aus ihrem eigenen Selbstverständnis heraus.

When Miss Rose Wellesley’s father threatens an arranged marriage, she knows she'd better settle on a choice quickly or end up having no say in who she marries. Fortunately, she's garnered a rare invitation to Lady Dunlop's "Week of Love" house party, an annual affair notorious for matchmaking.

The extraordinary Gertrude Bell, Freya Stark, Rosetta Forbes and Mary Curzon are the best known protagonists in this history and biography of the Western women who lived, worked and travelled in Arabia in the first half of the twentieth century. Largely ignored by historians, they were sometimes flamboyant and unconventional, sometimes conservative and conformist - and all of them wanted to be a part of British imperial life. Some were prepared to 'play the game', others, like the American missionaries whose stories are told here, were not and were regarded as difficult and dangerous. Playing the Game explores how they negotiated power and position in the Empire. It reveals how conventional female roles were defined by the masculine culture of imperial authority and how while at times these women actively colluded with this, at others they successfully subverted the stereotypes.
