Liebe und andere Turbulenzen Laney Hudson hat kein Glück in der Liebe. Ihre durchgeknallte Mutter hingegen heiratet bereits zum dritten Mal. Und Laney hat die Aufgabe, das Brautkleid wohlbehalten von New York nach Hawaii zu bringen. Doch bald hat Laney noch mehr Ärger im Gepäck als nur den überdimensionalen Traum in Weiß: Sie steckt in Chicago fest und kann mit Müh und Not das letzte Hotelzimmer in der Stadt ergattern, das sie sich mit ihrem nervigen Sitznachbarn Noah teilen muss. Gezwungenermaßen kommen die beiden sich näher, und siehe da: Sie scheinen wie füreinander geschaffen. Blöd nur, dass Noah eigentlich auf dem Weg zu seiner eigenen Hochzeit ist ...

What Would Jesus Read?

Popular Religious Books and Everyday Life in Twentieth-Century America

Since the late nineteenth century, religiously themed books in America have been commercially popular yet scorned by critics. Working at the intersection of literary history, lived religion, and consumer culture, Erin A. Smith considers the largely unexplored world of popular religious books, examining the apparent tension between economic and religious imperatives for authors, publishers, and readers. Smith argues that this literature served as a form of extra-ecclesiastical ministry and credits the popularity and longevity of religious books to their day-to-day usefulness rather than their theological correctness or aesthetic quality. Drawing on publishers' records, letters by readers to authors, promotional materials, and interviews with contemporary religious-reading groups, Smith offers a comprehensive study that finds surprising overlap across the religious spectrum--Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish, liberal and conservative. Smith tells the story of how authors, publishers, and readers reconciled these books' dual function as best-selling consumer goods and spiritually edifying literature. What Would Jesus Read? will be of interest to literary and cultural historians, students in the field of print culture, and scholars of religious studies.

Rob Freeman und eine Gruppe Wissenschaftler beobachten auf dem fernen Planeten Ilmatar eine intelligente Spezies blinder Meereskreaturen, die in einem Ozean unter einer einen Kilometer dicken Eisschicht lebt. Keinesfalls dürfen die Kreaturen von ihrer Anwesenheit erfahren. Die terranischen Entdecker haben ein wackliges Abkommen mit den Sholen, ihrem ersten extraterrestrischen Kontakt, geschlossen. Solange die Menschen in dem ilmataranischen Habitat keine Unruhe stiften, dürfen sie ihre Forschungen unbehelligt durchführen. Doch die ganze Mission geht vor die Hunde, als der leichtsinnige Abenteurer Henri Kerlerec entdeckt und von den neugierigen Kreaturen seziert wird. Die Spannungen zwischen Terranern und Sholen eskalieren und es kommt zu einer diplomatischen Katastrophe, die sich zu einem Krieg auszuweiten droht. In den Tiefen des Ozeans prallen fremde Kulturen aufeinander. Beide Seiten werben um die Unterstützung der gerade erst kontaktierten Ilmataraner. Doch was der Kampf für dieses Volk und die Zukunft menschlicher Erkundungen bedeutet, steht längst noch nicht fest.

In ihrem fulminanten, komisch-tragischen, autobiographischen Debütroman erzählt Négar Djavadi aus der Sicht ihres Alter Egos Kimiâ Sadr die Geschichte ihrer Familie, die aus Iran stammt. Ein zweiter Erzählstrang betrifft Kimiâ selbst und ihre Schwangerschaft. Die klappt nur mit Hilfe der Medizin und der Mann dazu ist auch nur geliehen – Kimiâ liebt eher Frauen. In Teheran geboren und seit zehn Jahren im Pariser Exil, hat Kimiâ stets versucht, ihr Land, ihre Kultur, ihre Familie auf Abstand zu halten. Doch die Geister der Vergangenheit holen sie wieder ein, um in einem überwältigenden Bilderreigen die Geschichte der Familie Sadr in drei Generationen vor ihr abzuspulen: die Drangsale im Leben der Ahnen, ein Jahrzehnt der politischen Revolution, die Winkelgassen der Adoleszenz, berauschende Rockmusik, das schelmische Lächeln einer blonden Bassistin. Und dann gibt es, im dunklen Kern dieses atemberaubenden Romans über den Iran von gestern und das Frankreich von heute, noch eine furchtbare Geschichte zu erzählen

The L.M. Montgomery Reader

The final volume of The L.M. Montgomery Reader, A Legacy in Review examines a long overlooked portion of Montgomery’s critical reception: reviews of her books. Although Montgomery downplayed the impact that reviews had on her writing career, claiming to be amused and tolerant of reviewers’ contradictory opinions about her work, she nevertheless cared enough to keep a large percentage of them in scrapbooks as an archive of her career. Edited by leading Montgomery scholar Benjamin Lefebvre, this volume presents more than four hundred reviews from eight countries that raise questions about and offer reflections on gender, genre, setting, character, audience, and nationalism, much of which anticipated the scholarship that has thrived in the last four decades. Lefebvre’s extended introduction and chapter headnotes place the reviews in the context of Montgomery’s literary career and trace the evolution of attitudes to her work, and his epilogue examines the reception of Montgomery’s books that were published posthumously. A comprehensive account of the reception of Montgomery’s books, published during and after her lifetime, A Legacy in Review is the illuminating final volume of this important new resource for L.M. Montgomery scholars and fans around the world.

The Late Age of Print

Ted Striphas argues that, although the production and propagation of books have undoubtedly entered a new phase, printed works are still very much a part of our everyday lives. With examples from trade journals, news media, films, advertisements, and a host of other commercial and scholarly materials, Striphas tells a story of modern publishing that proves, even in a rapidly digitizing world, books are anything but dead. From the rise of retail superstores to Oprah's phenomenal reach, Striphas tracks the methods through which the book industry has adapted (or has failed to adapt) to rapid changes in twentieth-century print culture. Barnes & Noble, Borders, and Amazon.com have established new routes of traffic in and around books, and pop sensations like Harry Potter and the Oprah Book Club have inspired the kind of brand loyalty that could only make advertisers swoon. At the same time, advances in digital technology have presented the book industry with extraordinary threats and unique opportunities. Striphas's provocative analysis offers a counternarrative to those who either triumphantly declare the end of printed books or deeply mourn their passing. With wit and brilliant insight, he isolates the invisible processes through which books have come to mediate our social interactions and influence our habits of consumption, integrating themselves into our routines and intellects like never before.

Dear Appalachia

Readers, Identity, and Popular Fiction since 1878

Much criticism has been directed at negative stereotypes of Appalachia perpetuated by movies, television shows, and news media. Books, on the other hand, often draw enthusiastic praise for their celebration of the simplicity and authenticity of the Appalachian region. Dear Appalachia: Readers, Identity, and Popular Fiction since 1878 employs the innovative new strategy of examining fan mail, reviews, and readers' geographic affiliations to understand how readers have imagined the region and what purposes these imagined geographies have served for them. As Emily Satterwhite traces the changing visions of Appalachia across the decades, from the Gilded Age (1865--1895) to the present, she finds that every generation has produced an audience hungry for a romantic version of Appalachia. According to Satterwhite, best-selling fiction has portrayed Appalachia as a distinctive place apart from the mainstream United States, has offered cosmopolitan white readers a sense of identity and community, and has engendered feelings of national and cultural pride. Thanks in part to readers' faith in authors as authentic representatives of the regions they write about, Satterwhite argues, regional fiction often plays a role in creating and affirming regional identity. By mapping the geographic locations of fans, Dear Appalachia demonstrates that mobile white readers in particular, including regional elites, have idealized Appalachia as rooted, static, and protected from commercial society in order to reassure themselves that there remains an "authentic" America untouched by global currents. Investigating texts such as John Fox Jr.'s The Trail of the Lonesome Pine (1908), Harriette Arnow's The Dollmaker (1954), James Dickey's Deliverance (1970), and Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain (1997), Dear Appalachia moves beyond traditional studies of regional fiction to document the functions of these narratives in the lives of readers, revealing not only what people have thought about Appalachia, but why.

Black Earth

Der Holocaust begann an einem dunklen Ort – in Hitlers Kopf: Die Eliminierung der Juden würde das ökologische Gleichgewicht des Planeten wiederherstellen und Deutschland die Ressourcen verschaffen, die es dringend benötigte. Timothy Snyders aufsehenerregendes Buch beginnt damit, wie Hitler die Welt sah. Atemberaubend intensiv schildert Black Earth, was geschah, wie es geschah und warum es geschah. Und es endet mit einer Warnung: Wir sollten uns nicht zu sicher sein. Wir sind nicht so weit entfernt von jenen Ängsten, die den Holocaust ermöglicht haben, wie wir glauben. Wir haben uns daran gewöhnt, den Holocaust als Todesfabrik zu sehen, in Gang gesetzt von Bürokratien des Bösen. Doch als die Gaskammern in Betrieb gingen, waren bereits mehr als eine Million Juden tot: erschossen aus nächster Nähe vor Gruben und Schluchten. Sie wurden in den Todeszonen ermordet, die in einem deutschen Kolonialkrieg im Osten geschaffen worden waren, viele davon auf der fruchtbaren schwarzen Erde, von der die Deutschen meinten, sie würde künftig ihr Überleben sichern. Es hat etwas Beruhigendes zu glauben, der Holocaust sei ein völlig singulärer Vorgang gewesen. Doch Timothy Snyder zeigt, dass wir an einigen der wichtigsten historischen Lehren vorbeigehen, die wir aus dem Holocaust ziehen können, wenn wir nicht sehr genau hinschauen, welche Faktoren und Bedingungen ihn ermöglicht haben. Sein Bestseller Bloodlands war eine innovative Erkundung der Ereignisse in Osteuropa zwischen 1933 und 1945, als die Politik der Nationalsozialisten und der Sowjets den Tod von 14 Millionen Menschen verursachten. Black Earth ist eine nicht weniger eindringliche Auseinandersetzung mit den Ideen und der Politik, die den schlimmsten Massenmord des Jahrhunderts ermöglicht haben: den Holocaust.

Books, scholarly journals, business information, and professional information play a pivotal role in the political, social, economic, scientific, and intellectual life of nations. While publications abound on Wall Street and financial service companies, the relationship between Wall Street’s financial service companies and the publishing and information industries has not been explored until now. The Economics of the Publishing and Information Industries utilizes substantive historical, business, consumer, economic, sociological, technological, and quantitative and qualitative methodologies to understand the people, trends, strengths, opportunities, and threats the publishing industry and the financial service sector have faced in recent years. Various developments, both economic and demographic, contributed to the circumstances influencing the financial service sector’s investment in the publishing and information industries. This volume identifies and analyzes those developments, clearly laying out the forces that drove the marriage between the spheres of publishing and finance. This book offers insight and analysis that will appeal to those across a wide variety of fields and occupations, including those in financial service firms, instructors and students in business, communications, finance, or economics programs, business and financial reporters, regulators, private investors, and academic and major public research libraries.
