Bryan Garner is the most trusted living usage expert of our day, and Garner's Modern English Usage is the preeminent guide to the effective use of the English language. With well over 6,000 entries on English grammar, syntax, word choice, punctuation, capitalization, spelling, and style, thisbook is adored by professional writers and general readers alike. In this major update to a timeless classic, Bryan Garner has dramatically expanded coverage of international English usage, making the volume for the first time a guide not only to American English usage, but to English usage aroundthe globe. Interest in the English language is greater than ever; English is the lingua franca not only of higher education and academia, but of science, business, computing, aviation, and even - arguably - entertainment. An awareness of global English matters today as never before. To ensure that BryanGarner's clear, unambiguous advice resonates with English-speakers worldwide, more than 2,000 entries have been revised to account for the nuances of English not only in the United States, but in Australia and New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Canada, and South Africa. Not everything has changed: readers will still find the popular "Garner's Language-Change Index" which registers where each disputed usage in modern English falls on a five-stage continuum from non-acceptability (to the language community as a whole) to acceptability, giving the book a consistentstandard throughout. Bryan Garner's tools for scientific accuracy are, however, fully updated: this fourth edition benefits from usage data generated by Google Ngrams, which charts frequencies of any word or short sentence in sources printed after 1800. With thousands of concise entries, longer essays on problematic areas such as subject-verb agreement and danglers, and meticulous citations of the New York Times, Newsweek, and other leading journalistic sources, this fourth edition of Garner's Modern English Usage provides priceless referenceinformation to anyone hoping to improve as a writer - worldwide.

Aufgewachsen in der Bronx, Puertoricanerin, die Kindheit prekär, der Vater Alkoholiker, die Mutter überfordert – Sonia Sotomayor war es nicht gerade in die Wiege gelegt, eines Tages Richterin am höchsten Gericht der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika zu werden. Mit einem großen Herzen und viel Humor erzählt diese Ausnahmefrau von ihrem Weg, aber nicht um sich dabei auf die Schulter zu klopfen, sondern um anderen Menschen mit ihrer eigenen Geschichte Mut zu machen. Ein hinreißendes, ansteckendes Buch über das Trotzdem und über die – wirklich wichtigen – Dinge des Lebens. „’Nach der Lektüre werden mich die Leser nach menschlichen Kriterien beurteilen’, schreibt Sonia Sotomayor. Wir, die wir in diesem Fall die Jury sind, finden sie einfach unwiderstehlich.“ Washingtonian „Überwältigende und stark geschriebene Memoiren zum Thema Identität und Persönlichkeitsfindung ... Offenherzig, scharf beobachtet und vor allem tief empfunden.“ The New York Times „Eine Frau, die weiß, wo sie herkommt und die die Kraft hat, uns dorthin mitzunehmen.“ The New York Times Book Review

Er lebte zwanzig Jahre an der Seite einer Mörderin - doch erst seit sie tot ist, wird sie ihm wirklich gefährlich Ein Mann sitzt stundenlang am Ende eines Bettes, in dem eine tote Frau liegt. Seine Frau. Erst am nächsten Morgen ruft er die Polizei. Er – Kandidat für einen Sitz am obersten Gerichtshof – wird des Mordes angeklagt werden. Alles wird gegen ihn sprechen. Er wird beweisen müssen, dass er unschuldig ist. Vor zwanzig Jahren hatte Rusty Sabich eine Affäre mit einer Kollegin, bevor diese brutal ermordet wurde. Sein Widersacher in der Staatsanwaltschaft von Kindle County, Tommy Molto, hatte unnachgiebig versucht, Rustys Schuld zu beweisen, seine Karriere zu ruinieren und sein Leben zu zerstören. Jetzt findet sich Rusty wieder an der Seite einer toten Frau. Diesmal will Tommy Molto zu Ende bringen, was er damals begonnen hat. Treue und Verrat, Schuld und Vergebung, die Dämonen des Egos, der Schwäche, der Verlockung im Ringen mit hohen Idealen in einer ungerechten Welt: Wie kein anderer versteht sich Scott Turow darauf, ein spannendes Gerichtsverfahren zu inszenieren, in dem er seine Figuren an den Rand ihres seelischen Abgrunds treten lässt. Mit "Der letzte Beweis" legt Turow wieder einen klassischen großen Justizthriller vor und übertrifft sich selbst als Meister des Genres, das er mit "Aus Mangel an Beweisen" begründete.
