From the earliest workshop days to the grandest marque in the automotive world, the story of one of the most important enterprises of the twentieth century comes alive in this complete history. The rich history of Daimler-Benz (now DaimlerChrysler) has its roots in the early experimentation with the use of the internal combustion engine by three men: Carl Benz, Gottlieb Daimler, and William Maybach. Benz, working alone, and Daimler and Maybach, working together, the two shops separated by a mere sixty miles, in the late 1880s simultaneously laid the foundation of what would become the German automotive industry. At first there was competition between Benz & Cie. and Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft, as they engineered and styled the earliest motorwagens and began to develop markets for their products. These early efforts led to the establishment of an entire industry by the start of World War I. But the war and its aftermath devastated these two companies, as it did the German economy overall. By the early 1920s it became apparent that the only way to survival was a merger, and thus, on June 29, 1926, the stockholders of both companies gave approval to the new company, Daimler-Benz, which led directly to the birth of one of the world's best-known brands: Mercedes-Benz. In the hands of noted automotive photographer, author, and editor Dennis Adler, the history of the marque and the company unfolds through the decades, as Mercedes-Benz advances in fame, from the racing glory years to the present, becoming the standard that all automakers strive to meet. With archival (many never before published) and the author's own photographs, the beauty and power of the automobile comes alive, from the earliest models to the first crop of twenty-first-century Mercedes-Benzes. It is a story of excellence that is in many ways unmatched in the history of any industry. Today, as a global leader in design, safety, and overall excellence, Mercedes-Benz continues to lead the way.

Wir leben in einer technologischen Sackgasse. Zwar suggeriert die Globalisierung technischen Fortschritt, doch das vermeintlich Neue, sind vor allem Kopien des Bestehenden. Peter Thiel, Silicon-Valley-Insider und in der Wirtschaftscommunity bestens bekannter Innovationstreiber ist überzeugt: Globalisierung ist kein Fortschritt, Konkurrenz ist schädlich und nur Monopole sind nachhaltig erfolgreich. Er zeigt: Wahre Innovation entsteht nicht horizontal, sondern sprunghaft - from Zero to One. Um die Zukunft zu erobern, reicht es nicht, der Beste zu sein. Gründer müssen aus dem Wettkampf des Immergleichen heraustreten und völlig neue Märkte erobern. Wie man wirklich Neues erfindet, enthüllt seine beeindruckende Anleitung zum visionären Querdenken. Ein Appell für einen Startup der ganzen Gesellschaft.

Erarbeitet von einer Gruppe renommierter Forscher des traditionsreichen Instituts für Sprechwissenschaft und Phonetik der Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, ist das Deutsche Aussprachewörterbuch das neue maßgebliche Referenzwerk zur deutschen Standardaussprache. Es informiert zuverlässig über die deutsche Aussprache und gibt den Standard so wieder, wie er heute von den meisten Deutschsprachigen als hochsprachliche Norm empfunden und verwendet wird. Neben einer ausführlichen Einleitung zur Phonetik und Transkription bietet es ein umfassendes Wörterverzeichnis mit ca. 150.000 Stichwörtern (darunter auch zahlreiche fremde Wörter und Namen) sowie zahlreiche Infokästen, die der Erläuterung von phonetischen Grundregeln und Aussprachebesonderheiten dienen. Die gebundene Ausgabe des Wörterbuchs enthält zudem eine Audio-CD mit gesprochenen Tonbeispielen zur akustischen Verdeutlichung der Regeln, die in der Einleitung behandelt werden. Anders als andere Aussprachewörterbücher basieren die hier präsentierten Angaben zu großen Teilen auf empirisch gewonnenem Datenmaterial; das Werk steht damit in der Nachfolge des halleschen Großen Wörterbuchs der deutschen Aussprache. Die zugrunde liegenden Untersuchungen, die seit Beginn der 1990er Jahre über einen Zeitraum von über zehn Jahren durchgeführt wurden, schlossen unter anderem ausgedehnte soziophonetische Studien ein, darunter eine systematische Befragung von ca. 1.600 Personen mit unterschiedlichem sozialem Hintergrund aus allen Sprachlandschaften Deutschlands zur Akzeptanz bestimmter Ausspracheformen. Die Präsentation bedient sich zeitgenössischer didaktischer Methoden und ermöglicht einen raschen Zugang und gute Verständlichkeit für jeden Benutzer. Damit liegt ein modernes, in allen Fragen der deutschen Standardaussprache maßgebliches und höchsten wissenschaftlichen Ansprüchen genügendes Aussprachewörterbuch vor, das den Siebs ablöst.
