Aus den Besprechungen:"... Der Wert des Buches besteht auÃer in der überlegenen, den Stoff sicher beherrschenden Darstellung vor allem in der hervorragend durchgeführten Systematik, der trotz Erläuterung einer Fülle von Einzeltatsachen wohlausgewogenen Beschränkung auf das Wesentliche und dem häufigen Hinweis auf die Praxis. ... Insbesondere die einführenden Kapitel haben Lehrbuchcharakter, während die folgenden Kapitel dem mit den Grundlagen Vertrauten einen Ãberblick über den Stand der Forschung vermitteln. Jedem Kapitel ist ein Schrifttumsverzeichnis angefügt, in dem erfreulicherweise auch die neueste Literatur berücksichtigt worden ist. Ein ausführliches Sachverzeichnis schlieÃen das Buch ab. Ausstattung und Druck des Buches entsprechen der Tradition des Verlages, d.h. sie sind erwartungsgemäÃ gut. Alles in allem ist der Fachwelt hier ein Buch vorgelegt worden, das dem Lernenden und dem Fachmann bald unentbehrlich sein wird." Materialprüfung#1

Thousands of years ago, human civilizations were slaves to Gods & Titans. In truth, these beings were merely aliens, non-immortal human-like life forms from a world called Sonora. A war broke out that ended their rule on humanity, led by the famously known, so-called Gods of ancient civilizations. Victorious, the Gods of Earth established an order of Guardians, tasked to defend humans against the unauthorized passage of Sonorian invaders. Many years later, the balance of power shifts, and the King of Sonora is murdered by a malevolent General who seeks ultimate power. As this new King's power grows, evil forces takeover in Sonora, and eventually push that world toward the brink of war. The Guardians of Earth are now at a precipice, and their only hope is to protect the Sonorian rebellion and hope that they can find a way to defeat this new King before he amasses an army large enough to invade Earth. Sasquatch, one of the most famous Guardians, monitors the gateway in North America where a group of Sonorian rebels have assimilated into the small mountain community of Sandy, Oregon. His task becomes even more complicated when he learns that he must protect the last bloodline of the rightful heir to the Sonorian throne. Allora is unaware of her alien and royal heritage until she becomes the victim of a malicious prank. Embarrassed in front of her peers, her emotions become overwhelming, causing her hands to burst into flames. The sudden and public outburst projects an energy signature that attracts assassins to the small town. Allora and her friends Tanner, Dax, and Katie must learn the ways of combat, master the art of the sword, and harness the ability to focus energized molecules, called hadrons, in order to meet their destiny and become true Sonorian warriors. Their only hope for survival is an ancient artifact, known as the Eye of the Titans. To find it, Allora, Katie, Dax, and Tanner must solve complex riddles, fight mythical creatures, and navigate a magical cavern maze, all the while enduring advanced calculus, jealous cheerleading girlfriends, and the much anticipated prom.

Among the hordes of starry-eyed 'argonauts' who flocked to the California gold rush of 1849 was an Australian named Edward Hargraves. He left America empty-handed, only to find gold in his own backyard. The result was the great Australian rush of the 1850s, which also attracted participants from around the world. A South African named P.J. Marais was one of them. Marais too returned home in defeat - only to set in motion the diamond and gold rushes that transformed southern Africa. And so it went. Most previous historians of the gold rushes have tended to view them as acts of spontaneous nationalism. Each country likes to see its own gold rush as the one that either shaped those that followed or epitomized all the rest. InThe Gold Crusades: A Social History of Gold Rushes, 1849-1929, Douglas Fetherling takes a different approach. Fetherling argues that the gold rushes in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa shared the same causes and results, the same characters and characteristics. He posits that they were in fact a single discontinuous event, an expression of the British imperial experience and nineteenth-century liberalism. He does so with dash and style and with a sharp eye for the telling anecdote, the out-of-the-way document, and the bold connection between seemingly unrelated disciplines.

In the sixteenth century, Spanish conquistadors discovered the New World. The vast quantities of gold and silver would make their country rich, yet the new wealth, which was plunged into multiple wars, would eventually lead to the economic ruin of their empire. Here, historian and politician Kwasi Kwarteng shows that this moment in world history has been echoed many times, from the French Revolution to both World Wars, right up to the present day, when our own financial crisis saw many of our great nations slip into financial trouble. Kwarteng reveals a pattern of war-waging, financial debt and fluctuations between paper money and the gold standard, and creates a compelling study of the powerful relationship that has shaped the world as we know it, that between war and gold.
