Excerpt from Wo-He-Lo, 1999-2000 Then I said softly to myself 'that must have been the Sun! Dread and fear. Careless indifference. Joyous anticipation. All of these were media-enhanced responses as the calendar turned to 2000. Someday our children and grandchildren will ask us to describe that year and what will our answers be? That, just as students did in 1940 and 1960 and 1990, we discussed literature's relevance in our lives, figured math prob lems, experimented in chemistry lab. That, just as students did in l 950 and 1950 and 1970, we complained about dorm rules, fell in or out of love, played basketball. That we celebrated Homecoming and suffered from small-town blues. That we knew everything and sometimes nothing. That we both feared and longed for change. That we loved tradition, and hated it. That we learned how to be disciplined leaders, loving parents, useful citizens. We'll tell them how East Central Community College was a beginning and an end, and that every day is a fresh start, anoth er chance, a new millennium. We'll tell them how the sun rose over central Mississippi pastures and in human hearts and how it rises there still.

Human beings have long imagined their subjectivity, ethics, and ancestry with and through animals, yet not until the mid-twentieth century did contemporary thought reflect critically on animals' significance in human self-conception. Thinkers such as French philosopher Jacques Derrida, South African novelist J. M. Coetzee, and American theorist Donna Haraway have initiated rigorous inquiries into the question of the animal, now blossoming in a number of directions. It is no longer strange to say that if animals did not exist, we would have to invent them. This interdisciplinary and cross-cultural collection reflects the growth of animal studies as an independent field and the rise of "animality" as a critical lens through which to analyze society and culture, on a par with race and gender. Essays consider the role of animals in the human imagination and the imagination of the human; the worldviews of indigenous peoples; animal-human mythology in early modern China; and political uses of the animal in postcolonial India. They engage with the theoretical underpinnings of the animal protection movement, representations of animals in children's literature, depictions of animals in contemporary art, and the philosophical positioning of the animal from Aristotle to Derrida. The strength of this companion lies in its timeliness and contextual diversity, which makes it essential reading for students and researchers while further developing the parameters of the discipline.

Das Buch der Sonderklasse Die erfolgreichste Oberklasse-Limousine aller Zeiten ist die Mercedes-Baureihe 126. In zwölf Jahren wurden mehr als 800.000 Limousinen und Coupés gebaut. Heute zählen die S-Klassen der 80er zu den beliebtesten und begehrtesten Old- und Youngtimern. Der W 126 besticht nach wie vor mit seinem zeitlos-eleganten Design. Mit dem repräsentativen Wagen wurden überdies zahlreiche technische Innovationen wie ABS, Gurtstrammer und Airbags selbstverständlich. Die erste umfassende Typenmonografie beschreibt die Entwicklung der Limousinen, ihrer Langversionen und der hinreißend gezeichneten Coupés, nennt alle technischen Daten und zeigt die Autos in zahllosen wunderbaren, eigens für das Buch gemachten Fotos. Dazu kommt ein ausführlicher Datenteil, in dem Lackfarben-, Polster- und Ausstattungscodes entschlüsselt werden. Eigenen Raum erhält auch das Thema Sonderschutz. Wohl noch von keiner Limousine zuvor sind derart viele gepanzerte Versionen gebaut worden. Schließlich widmet sich das Werk dem spannenden Thema Tuning – auch diverse Veredler und Tuner nahmen sich mit Begeisterung der S-Klasse an. Flügeltürer, Kombis, Cabrios und abenteuerliche Breitbauten entstanden ebenso wie teils exzentrische Luxusliner für ölreiche Potentaten.

'Branded Lives explodes the myth that a brand must, or even can stand for one unified, easily communicated message. While warning of the dangers of managing to preserve this myth, the book also celebrates the plurality of brand meanings generated by those employed to serve both the brand and the customer. I recommend reading this book in its entirety. If you are like me, your reading will bring a refreshing fullness to the experience of brands and branding and many new insights.' Mary Jo Hatch, University of Virginia, USBranded Lives explores the increasingly popular concept of employee branding as a new form of employment relationship based on brand representation. In doing so it examines the ways in which the production and consumption of meaning at work are increasingly mediated by the brand.This insightful collection draws on qualitative empirical studies in a range of contexts to include services, retail and manufacturing organizations. The contributors explore the nuances of employee branding from various disciplinary standpoints such as: organization studies, marketing, human resource management and industrial relations. They take a critical perspective on work and organizations and document the lived experience of work and employment under branded conditions. In investigating the extent to which a variety of organizational strategies seek to mould workplace meanings and practices to further build and sustain brand value and the effectiveness of these in terms of employee responses, the authors question whether the attempt to 'brand' workers' lives actually enhances or diminishes the meaning and experience of work.Based on in-depth qualitative, ethnographic and case study research this compendium will prove essential for researchers working within the general area of employment studies and specifically on branded employment and work. Students in marketing, human resource management and management as well as HR and marketing practitioners interested in employee branding will also find this book relevant and stimulating.

In The Death and Life of Great American Cities durchleuchtet Jane Jacobs 1961 die fragwürdigen Methoden der Stadtplanung und Stadtsanierung in Amerika, der "New Yorker" nannte es das unkonventionellste und provozierendste Buch über Städtebau seit langem. Die deutsche Ausgabe wurde schnell auch im deutschsprachigem Raum zu einer viel gelesenen und diskutierten Lektüre. Sie ist jetzt wieder in einem Nachdruck zugänglich, mit einem Vorwort von Gerd Albers (1993), das nach der Aktualität dieser Streitschrift fragt.

Theodore Rex is the story—never fully told before—of Theodore Roosevelt’s two world-changing terms as President of the United States. A hundred years before the catastrophe of September 11, 2001, “TR” succeeded to power in the aftermath of an act of terrorism. Youngest of all our chief executives, he rallied a stricken nation with his superhuman energy, charm, and political skills. He proceeded to combat the problems of race and labor relations and trust control while making the Panama Canal possible and winning the Nobel Peace Prize. But his most historic achievement remains his creation of a national conservation policy, and his monument millions of acres of protected parks and forest. Theodore Rex ends with TR leaving office, still only fifty years old, his future reputation secure as one of our greatest presidents. From the Trade Paperback edition.
