Das neue Buch der Nobelpreisträgerin Alice Munro! Niemand erzählt eindringlicher davon, wie es wäre, ein neues Leben zu beginnen, als die große kanadische Autorin Alice Munro. »Dir diesen Brief schreiben ist wie einen Zettel in eine Flasche stecken und hoffen, er wird Japan erreichen«, schreibt Greta in der ersten Erzählung und schickt diese Zeilen an Harris, den Zeitungsreporter, der sie nach einer Party fast geküsst hätte. Aber eben nur fast. Auf wenigen Seiten kondensiert Alice Munro die geheimen Träume ihrer Figuren. Vierzehn neue brillante Erzählungen, die mit einem furiosen Finale enden: vier Geschichten, in denen sie so persönlich wie nie (»die ersten und die letzten Dinge, die ich über mein Leben zu sagen habe«) von sich selbst erzählt.

Sie ist stolz auf das nahezu perfekte Leben, das sie führen, bis ihre Welt auseinanderbricht: Ed gerät nach einer durchzechten Nacht in den Verdacht, eine junge Frau ermordet zu haben. Doch obwohl Alice ein blaues Seidenhalsband in seiner Jacketttasche entdeckt, beteuert Ed seine Unschuld. Dann taucht plötzlich Marianne auf, eine ehemalige Freundin von Alice, zu der sie keinen Kontakt mehr hatte. Sie zeigt Alice ein Foto, das Eds Version der Mordnacht als Unwahrheit entlarvt. Und Alice wird zerrissen in einem gefährlichen psychologischen Spiel, das sie schließlich einen fatalen Fehler begehen lässt ...

Typische Programmieraufgaben kreativ lösen am Beispiel von C++ Von der Aufgabe zur Lösung – so gehen Sie vor Probleme analysieren und schrittweise bearbeiten Systematisches Vorgehen lernen und anwenden Aus dem Inhalt: Strategien zur Problemlösung Eingabeverarbeitung Statusverfolgung Arrays Zeiger und dynamische Speicherverwaltung Klassen Rekursion Wiederverwendung von Code Rekursive und iterative Programmierung Denken wie ein Programmierer Die Herausforderung beim Programmieren besteht nicht im Erlernen der Syntax einer bestimmten Sprache, sondern in der Fähigkeit, auf kreative Art Probleme zu lösen. In diesem einzigartigen Buch widmet sich der Autor V. Anton Spraul genau jenen Fähigkeiten, die in normalen Lehrbüchern eher nicht behandelt werden: die Fähigkeit, wie ein Programmierer zu denken und Aufgaben zu lösen. In den einzelnen Kapiteln behandelt er jeweils verschiedene Programmierkonzepte wie beispielsweise Klassen, Zeiger und Rekursion, und fordert den Leser mit erweiterbaren Übungen zur praktischen Anwendung des Gelernten auf. Sie lernen unter anderem: Probleme in diskrete Einzelteile zerlegen, die sich leichter lösen lassen Funktionen, Klassen und Bibliotheken möglichst effizient nutzen und wiederholt verwenden die perfekte Datenstruktur für eine Aufgabenstellung auswählen anspruchsvollere Programmiertechniken wie Rekursion und dynamischen Speicher einsetzen Ihre Gendanken ordnen und Strategien entwickeln, um bestimmte Problemkategorien in Angriff zu nehmen Die Beispiele im Buch werden mit C++ gelöst, die dargestellten kreativen Problemlösungskonzepte gehen aber weit über die einzelnen Programmiersprachen und oft sogar über den Bereich der Informatik hinaus. Denn wie die fähigsten Programmierer wissen, handelt es sich beim Schreiben herausragender Quelltexte um kreative Kunst und der erste Schritt auf dem Weg zum eigenen Meisterwerk besteht darin, wie ein Programmierer zu denken. Über den Autor: V. Anton Spraul hat über 15 Jahre lang Vorlesungen über die Grundlagen der Programmierung und Informatik gehalten. In diesem Buch fasst er die von ihm dabei perfektionierten Verfahren zusammen. Er ist auch Autor von »Computer Science Made Simple«.

As one of the most highly respected members of the Indian judiciary whose contribution to the cause of humanity and to the growth of human rights jurisprudence has been very significant, author O. Chinnappa Reddy has faced thousands of court cases. In his new book, Humpty Dumpty with Alice in the Wonderland of Law, he shares his cheerful disposition with a collection of humorous short stories drawn from law reports of the last two hundred years. With over 120 pages, this collection of law reports discusses a wide range of topics – most are bizarre – spanning from Humpty Dumpty and the Law, The Case of Adam and Eve, The Case of the Playing Cards to The Case of the Black Dollar vs. White Dollar, The Case of the Racehorses and the Woman, and many more. Through these true law reports, readers will find themselves amused, informed, and thinking at the same time. They will find out that even from simple and oftentimes strange situations, the law still prevails.

In Starting Out with Games and Graphics in C++, Gaddis covers the essentials of programming for a novice using the C++ language. Like all Gaddis books, it covers each and every step. Throughout the book, programming topics are illustrated with graphical examples, including full chapter long case studies that implement simple, but complete, video games. This approach insures that students remain motivated by the material, while still getting a solid CS1 foundation. Only enough game- and graphics-theory is covered for students to understand the examples.

The narrative surrounding the Titanic’s voyage, collision, and sinking in April 1912 seems tailor-made for film. With clear categories of gender, class, nationality, and religion, the dominating Titanic myth offers a wealth of motifs ripe for the silver screen-heroism, melodrama, love, despair, pleasure, pain, failure, triumph, memory and eternal guilt. This volume provides a detailed overview of Titanic films from 1912 to the present and analyzes the six major Titanic films, including the 1943 Nazi propaganda production, the 1953 Hollywood film, the 1958 British docudrama A Night to Remember, the 1979 TV production S.O.S. Titanic, the 1996 mini-series Titanic, and James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster. By showing how each film follows and builds on a pattern of fixed scenes, motifs and details defined as the “Titanic code,” this work yields telling insights into why this specific disaster has maintained such great relevance into the 21st century.

"A story that really draws the reader in... Quite deliciously funny and sad." Barbara Trapido, author of Frankie & Stankie. Kit and Alice are happy, in love and enjoying a luxurious weekend break abroad when the unthinkable happens. Their car spins off a mountain road and into an empty desert valley. Their lives are changed in an instant. The accident shatters their faith in their relationship and in each other. Alice's natural optimism and sense of security desert her; she stops eating and separates herself from other people. Even her loving sister, Emmy, is kept at a distance. Kit's dog Bones becomes her constant companion. For his part, Kit resents this new brittle Alice; but he cannot seem to reconnect. The Trouble with Alice is a beautifully written tale of two people thrown in at the emotional deep end, struggling to find a way back in the aftermath of tragedy. With poignancy and humour, and a keen understanding of human frailty, Olivia Glazebrook unwinds the conventions of a love story. She speaks of compassion, of renewal and ultimately, perhaps, of reconciliation.
