Der Auftakt zu einer der berühmtesten und erfolgreichsten Krimiserien der Welt – "Sue Grafton ist unwiderstehlich!" (Time Magazine) Acht Jahre ist es her, dass der skrupellose Anwalt Laurence Fife ermordet wurde. Acht Jahre saß seine junge und schöne Frau Nikki unschuldig im Gefängnis. Als sie endlich auf Bewährung freikommt, wendet sie sich an Privatdetektivin Kinsey Millhone, die sich auf die Suche nach dem wahren Mörder begibt. Kinsey Millhone läßt nicht locker und gerät immer tiefer in einen Strudel aus Leidenschaft, Verzweiflung und Haß, dem sie sich nicht entziehen kann. Erst viel zu spät erkennt Kinsey Millhone die Wahrheit – doch da steht sie dem Mörder bereits Angesicht zu Angesicht gegenüber. "Kinsey Millhone ist ein reizendes Miststück - es ist nicht leicht, sich nicht in sie zu verlieben."(Abendzeitung München)

The Problems and Prospects of Journalism

The future of journalism isn't what it used to be. As recently as the mid-1960s, few would have predicted the shocks and transformations that have swept through the news business in the last three decades: the deaths of many afternoon newspapers, the emergence of television as people's primary news source and the quicksilver combinations of cable television, VCRs and the Internet that have changed our ways of reading, seeing, and listening. The essays in this volume seek to illuminate the future prospects of journalism. Mindful that grandiose predictions of the world of tomorrow tend to be the fantasies and phobias of the present written large-in the 1930s and 1940s magazines such as Scribner's, Barron's, and Collier's forecast that one day we would have an airplane in every garage-the authors of What's Next? have taken a more careful view. The writers start with what they know-the trends that they see in journalism today-and ask where will they take us in the foreseeable future. For some media, such as newspapers, the visible horizon is decades away. For others, particularly anything involving the Internet, responsible forecasts can look ahead only for a matter of years. Where the likely destinations of present trends are not entirely clear, the authors have tried to pose the kinds of questions that they believe people will have to address in years to come. While being mindful of the tremendous influence of technology, one must remember that computers, punditry, or market share will not ordain the future of journalism. Rather, it will be determined by the sum of countless actions taken by journalists and other media professionals. These essays, with their hopes and fears, cautions and enthusiasms, questions and answers, are an effort to create the best possible future for journalism. This volume will be of interest to media professionals, academics and others with an interest in the future of journalism. Robert Giles is editor-in-chief of Media Studies Journal and executive director of the Media Studies Center. Formerly the editor and publisher of The Detroit News, he is the author of Newsroom Management: A Guide to Theory and Practice. Robert W. Snyder is editor of Media Studies Journal, a historian, and most recently author of Transit Talk: New York's Bus and Subway Workers Tell Their Stories. He has taught at Princeton and New York universities.

Using the Theories of Innovation to Predict Industry Change

Author: Clayton M. Christensen,Scott D. Anthony,Erik A. Roth

Publisher: Harvard Business Press

ISBN: 9781591391852

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 312

When a disruptive innovation is launched, it changes the entire industry and every firm operating within in This book argues that it is possible to predict which companies will win and which will lose in a specific situation—and provides a practical framework for doing so. Most books on innovation—including Christensen’s previous two books—approached innovation from the inside-out, showing firms how they can create innovations inside their own companies. This book is written from an outside-in perspective, showing how executives, investors, and analysts can assess the impact of a new innovation on the firms they have a vested interest in.

Adrian Thomas is a psychology professor whose career was spent delving into damaged minds. Diagnosed with a fatal degenerative disease that is causing hallucinations and stripping him of his memories, Adrian wants to end his life—until he sees a girl snatched off the street and dragged screaming into the back of a van.

This is an exceptional novel—and a most troubling one.” —The Washington Post “Draw[s] you deeper and deeper into a chilling atmosphere of evil, darkness, and shadows.” —The Miami Herald “[A] re-imagining of The Pit and the Pendulum for the digital age.” —Kirkus Reviews

What Comes Next and How to Like It

A Memoir

Author: Abigail Thomas

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

The New York Times bestseller from the beloved author of A Three Dog Life—an exhilarating, superbly written memoir on friendship, family, creativity, tragedy, and the richness of life: “If you only read one book this year, make it this one” (Ann Patchett). In her bestselling memoir A Three Dog Life, Abigail Thomas wrote about the devastating loss of her husband. In What Comes Next and How to Like It, “a keenly observed memoir…Thomas writes of the changes aging brings us all and of coping through love: of family, dogs, a well-turned phrase. She is superb company” (People). Thomas was startled to overhear herself described as “a nice old lady with a tattoo,” because she thinks of herself as not nice, not old, nor a lady. But she has wondered: what comes next? What comes after the death of a spouse? What form does a lifelong friendship take after deepest betrayal? How does a mother cope with her child’s dire illness? Or the death of a cherished dog? And how to like it? How to accept, appreciate, enjoy? How to find solace and pleasure? How to sustain and be sustained by our most trusted, valuable companions? At its heart, What Comes Next and How to Like It is about the complicated friendship between Thomas and a man she met thirty-five years ago—a rich bond that has lasted through marriages, child-raising, and the vicissitudes and tragedies of life. “After all,” she writes, “there are those people we love, and then there are those we recognize. These are the unbreakable connections.” Exquisitely observed, lush with sentences you will read over and over again, What Comes Next and How to Like It “is a beautifully felt, deeply moving memoir, the best work yet by a woman who has already done some of the best work in the field. Abigail Thomas is the Emily Dickinson of memoirists, and so much of this book’s wisdom is between the lines and in the white spaces. It may only take you two days to read, but the impact will stay with you for a long, long time” (Stephen King). This is a glorious guide to living imperfectly and exuberantly.

Whats Next, Lord? depicts the life history of two godly people, Dick and Charlotte Coolidge from birth to death. Not only did they love the Lord, but also they were in love with each other, never straying too far apart. They were the type of people you quickly become friends with; the longer you knew them, the stronger that bond became until you felt as though you were part of their family. When they passed on, I felt as if something had ripped my heart out (as though I had lost a brother and sister), and nothing could replace that emptiness. I once asked Dick, How do you find the time to be involved in so many projects? He responded, Lee, when the Lord gives you a project to complete, he also gives you the time and energy to complete it. Such was the World Hunger Project, which began in the little town of Comptche, California, at the Chapel of the Redwoods and went worldwide. Whats next, Lord?

What Was Socialism, and What Comes Next?

Author: Katherine Verdery

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 9781400821990

Category: History

Page: 312

View: 7104

Among the first anthropologists to work in Eastern Europe, Katherine Verdery had built up a significant base of ethnographic and historical expertise when the major political transformations in the region began to take place. In this collection of essays dealing with the aftermath of Soviet-style socialism and the different forms that may replace it, she explores the nature of socialism in order to understand more fully its consequences. By analyzing her primary data from Romania and Transylvania and synthesizing information from other sources, Verdery lends a distinctive anthropological perspective to a variety of themes common to political and economic studies on the end of socialism: themes such as "civil society," the creation of market economies, privatization, national and ethnic conflict, and changing gender relations. Under Verdery's examination, privatization and civil society appear not only as social processes, for example, but as symbols in political rhetoric. The classic pyramid scheme is not just a means of enrichment but a site for reconceptualizing the meaning of money and an unusual form of post-Marxist millenarianism. Land being redistributed as private property stretches and shrinks, as in the imaginings of the farmers struggling to tame it. Infused by this kind of ethnographic sensibility, the essays reject the assumption of a transition to capitalism in favor of investigating local processes in their own terms.

The world spins in economic turmoil, and who can tell what will happen next? Cold numbers and simple statistical projections don't take into account social, financial, or political factors that can dramatically alter the economic course of a nation or a region. In this unique book, more than twenty leading economists and experts render thorough, rigorously researched prognoses for the world's major economies over the next five years. Factoring in such varied issues as the price of oil, the strength of the U.S. dollar, geopolitics, tax policies, and new developments in investment decision making, the contributors ground their predictions in the realities of current events, political conditions, and the health of financial institutions in each national economy. The most comprehensive volume on the global economy available today, this book presents up-to-date research on Russia, Australia, Europe, sub-Saharan and South Africa, the major Asian economies, North America, and the largest economies of Latin America. With unsurpassed expertise, the authors explain what's going on in individual countries, how important current global issues will impact them, and what economic scenarios they most likely will face in upcoming years.
