Adaptation in Contemporary Culture: Textual Infidelities seeks to reconfigure the ways in which adaptation is conceptualised by considering adaptation within an extended range of generic, critical and theoretical contexts. This collection explores literary, film, television and other visual texts both as 'origins' and 'adaptations' and offers new insights into the construction of genres, canons and 'classics'. Chapters investigate both 'classic' and contemporary texts by British and American authors, from Jane Austen, Edgar Allen Poe and Charles Dickens to Bret Easton Ellis, P.D James and Sarah Waters. A diverse range of literary, film and television genres is examined, from romance to science fiction, the Western to the 'women's picture' and the heritage film to postmodern pastiche. With a thematic focus on key critical paradigms for adaptation studies - fidelity, intertextuality, historicity and authorship - this collection expands the field of adaptation studies beyond its conventional focus on 'page to screen' adaptations to include film remakes, video games, biopics, fan fiction and celebrity culture.

Zwölf Stories der jungen nigerianischen Bestsellerautorin Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Nigeria – Nordamerika: Zwei Welten, getrennt durch eine scheinbar unüberwindbare Kluft. Die nigerianische Heimat schwebt zwischen Tradition und Moderne, wird bedroht von Gewalt und Korruption. In Amerika hingegen hält das Leben nicht, was es verspricht. An den Rändern beider Kulturen werden die prekären Bande zwischen Kindern und Eltern, die verborgenen Vibrationen zwischen Männern und Frauen aufgespürt: Die Liebe wird in der Distanz auf die Probe gestellt und das Sich-Wiederfinden ist schwieriger als erwartet. In der Familie schleichen sich Spannungen ein, wenn der Strudel des Lebens ihre Mitglieder mitreißt. Diese sinnlichen und gleichsam klaren Einblicke in die Wirren des nigerianischen, in erster Linie aber des menschlichen Lebens überhaupt, machen diese Geschichten nicht nur zu Erzählungen einer außergewöhnlichen jungen afrikanischen Stimme, sondern zu ganz großer Literatur. »Chimamanda Adichie ist eine neue Autorin, die mit der Gabe der alten Geschichtenerzähler gesegnet ist.« Chinua Achebe

Ein jahrtausendealter Mord Fünfzig Millionen Jahre in der Zukunft: Die blasenartigen Sphären, in denen die Menschen seit dem 22. Jahrhundert alle „unliebsamen Elemente“ eingesperrt haben, platzen nach und nach und entlassen ihre Bewohner wieder in die Normalzeit. Doch das, was sie außerhalb der Sphären erwartet, ist ein herber Schock: die Menschen auf der Erde sind verschwunden! Waren es Aliens? Oder haben sie die Menschen in einem gewaltigen Krieg selbst vernichtet? Kam es zu einer Singularität, die irgendwie von den Blasen verursacht worden ist? Will Brierson war Polizist, der von einem Verbrecher in einer dieser Blasen eingesperrt wurde. Jetzt wird er von den letzten Menschen beauftragt, einen Jahrtausende alten Mordfall zu lösen: eine Frau namens Marta Korolev wurde getötet, etwa zu der Zeit, als die Menschen verschwunden sind. Ihr Tagebuch könnte nicht nur Aufschluss über ihren Mörder geben, sondern auch darüber, was mit der Erde passiert ist ...

24 hours to save the NHS

"24 hours to save the NHS". It was a political slogan but it hid a deeper question. Could the NHS survive? Could it continue to offer free health care for every citizen regardless of their ability to pay? Could the extraordinary, liberating ambition and dream of its founders 50 years before be maintained in the 21st Century - that everyone, no matter how poor or ill, should be freed from worrying about how to pay for their health care. By 2000 the NHS was in decline with falling standards and failing public support. Its supporters were beginning to question its viability, whilst its enemies were eager to catalogue its faults. Five years later we had an answer. Radical change and investment meant that the NHS had survived. Standards were improving and the NHS was expanding. Proof came from outside. Public satisfaction doubled and fewer people opted for private healthcare. Most tellingly, all the major political parties went into the 2010 general election committed to the NHS and to helping it develop and prosper. Today the question has changed. The NHS has survived but can it become sustainable at a time of austerity and as demand for its services grows? 24 hours to save the NHS shows what we can learn from the past, and describes what more we need to do to innovate for the future. It is the inside story of the last reforms written by the man charged with implementing them, and who was given unprecedented authority as both Chief Executive of the NHS and Permanent Secretary of the Department of Health. A very practical book - it describes the successes and failures as well as the pressures and the difficulties of making improvements in the fourth biggest organization in the world which employs 1.3 million people and spends £100 billion a year. It will be of interest to the general reader, health workers, policy makers, academics and students alike.

Warum manche Menschen erfolgreich sind - und andere nicht

Malcolm Gladwell, Bestsellerautor und Star des amerikanischen Buchmarkts, hat die wahren Ursachen des Erfolgs untersucht und darüber ein lehrreiches, faszinierendes Buch geschrieben. Es steckt voller Geschichten und Beispiele, die zeigen, dass auch außergewöhnlicher Erfolg selten etwas mit individuellen Eigenschaften zu tun hat, sondern mit Gegebenheiten, die es dem einen leicht und dem anderen unmöglich machen, erfolgreich zu sein. Die Frage ist nicht, wie jemand ist, sondern woher er kommt: Welche Bedingungen haben diesen Menschen hervorgebracht? Auf seiner anregenden intellektuellen Erkundung der Welt der Überflieger erklärt Gladwell unter anderem das Geheimnis der Softwaremilliardäre, wie man ein herausragender Fußballer wird, warum Asiaten so gut in Mathe sind und was die Beatles zur größten Band aller Zeiten machte.
