Sketching the socially marginal, ingenuous, traveling characters common to both old and new versions, Sherrill shows how the "new American picaresque" transforms the satirical aims of the original into an effort to map and catalog the immensity and variety of America."--Jacket.

Das Buch wendet sich in erster Linie an Medizinstudenten, außerdem an alle Ärzte in Krankenhaus und Praxis. Die Notwendigkeit für ein klares Verständnis der mlkrobiologischen Grundtatsachen ist in den letzten Jahren stärker geworden, da in Biochemie, Virologie und Chemotherapie so wie auf weiteren, die Medizin beeinflussenden Gebieten bedeutende Entwicklungen statt gefunden haben. Ein wesendicher Teil dieses Lehrbuches ist deswegen der Darstellung der Grundlagen gewidmet, wodurch sich das Buch auch für die Einführung des Studenten in den mikrobiologischen Kurs als brauchbar erweisen wird. Für die neue Auflage wurde ein Kapitel über Virus und Krebs neu geschrieben, und das Kapitel über antimikrobielle Chemotherapie wurde von Grund auf neu bearbeitet. Die Autoren freuen sich, bei dem Erscheinen der 7. amerikanischen Ausgabe von einer spanischen, deutschen, italienischen und griechischen Ausgabe, sowie von der Vorbereitung für eine serbokroatische Übersetzung berichten zu können.

"While Puckett offers a valuable perspective on schooling in the twentieth-century rural South, she also captures the essence of daily life in the communities in which she taught. We read of how she sometimes boarded with the parents of her pupils; of how teachers, students, and parents joined together in observance of holidays; and of how schooling managed to continue through the busy growing seasons. Personal details of Puckett's life also emerge, from her relationship with her parents to her life at home with her husband and their eight children.".

"The Power of Setbacks" is an inspirational journey highlighting the author's struggles with cancer and how it unexpectedly led to an amazing new life. It’s all about the intersection of life and work, connecting with family, and redefining what really matters the most in life. "The Power of Setbacks" is filled with practical advice and insights on overcoming challenges, achieving your dreams, and creating your own success. Their journey began as a distraction. After being diagnosed with cancer, the authors turned to garage and estate sales as a way to distract them from their harsh reality. The sales brought smiles to their faces, kept their minds from wavering with doubt, and over the course of their travels, infused their lives (and their home) with new and exciting objects that carried historical and personal meaning. But as their house began to bust at its seams, they decided it was time to turn their collection into a business. The next few years were welcomed with sale after sale. And as they learned more, grew more, and dove deeper into the garage and estate sale world, they quickly realized they were onto something. And it was not just limited to garage sales. "The Power of Setbacks" is the story of their journey. But more importantly, it is a resource guide to build your own small business and then scale it to amazing heights, all while having fun during the process. Are you unhappy with your current job? Could you use supplementary income? Are you ready to make a change? Whatever the case may be, "The Power of Setbacks" is your handbook to create a new reality for you and your family.

The bestselling author of In the Heart of the Sea, Valiant Ambition, and In the Hurricane's Eye tells the story of the Boston battle that ignited the American Revolution, in this "masterpiece of narrative and perspective." (Boston Globe) Boston in 1775 is an island city occupied by British troops after a series of incendiary incidents by patriots who range from sober citizens to thuggish vigilantes. After the Boston Tea Party, British and American soldiers and Massachusetts residents have warily maneuvered around each other until April 19, when violence finally erupts at Lexington and Concord. In June, however, with the city cut off from supplies by a British blockade and Patriot militia poised in siege, skirmishes give way to outright war in the Battle of Bunker Hill. It would be the bloodiest battle of the Revolution to come, and the point of no return for the rebellious colonists. Philbrick brings a fresh perspective to every aspect of the story. He finds new characters, and new facets to familiar ones. The real work of choreographing rebellion falls to a thirty-three year old physician named Joseph Warren who emerges as the on-the-ground leader of the Patriot cause and is fated to die at Bunker Hill. Others in the cast include Paul Revere, Warren’s fiancé the poet Mercy Scollay, a newly recruited George Washington, the reluctant British combatant General Thomas Gage and his more bellicose successor William Howe, who leads the three charges at Bunker Hill and presides over the claustrophobic cauldron of a city under siege as both sides play a nervy game of brinkmanship for control. With passion and insight, Philbrick reconstructs the revolutionary landscape—geographic and ideological—in a mesmerizing narrative of the robust, messy, blisteringly real origins of America.

Aber dort lauern neue Gefahren und Verführungen.

Alljährlich lädt Benedict Grame Familie, Freunde und Bekannte zum großen Weihnachtsessen auf sein kleines britisches Landgut ein. Im Kreise seiner Lieben inszeniert er ein großes Festtagsspektakel. Dieses Jahr steht auch Mordecai Tremaine auf der Gästeliste. Der ehemalige Tabakhändler mit einer Schwäche für Liebesromane hat sich auch als Hobbydetektiv einen Namen gemacht – und ist vom Privatsekretär des Gastgebers beauftragt worden, die Geladenen im Auge zu behalten. Und tatsächlich: Jedes Mitglied dieser illustren Gesellschaft scheint etwas zu verbergen. Mordecai tastet sich durch ein Netz aus Lügen, Untreue, Erpressung und Verrat. Spätestens als um Mitternacht zwischen den Geschenken unter dem Baum eine Leiche liegt, ist ihm klar: Diese Weihnacht wird alles andere als besinnlich. Erstmals 1949 veröffentlicht, ist dieser stimmungsvolle Krimi eine echte Weihnachtswiederentdeckung. Der britische Weihnachtskrimiklassiker endlich auf Deutsch!
