Websters paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Spanish thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of A Fair Penitent by Wilkie Collins was edited for three audiences. The first includes Spanish-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Spanish speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Spanish in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement (AP) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Spanish Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Spanish or English.TOEFL, TOEIC, AP and Advanced Placement are trademarks of the Educational Testing Service which has neither reviewed nor endorsed this book.

Keine andere Liebesgeschichte hat das Publikum auf der ganzen Welt so mitgerissen wie diese große Saga um die verwöhnte Scarlett O'Hara und ihren zynischen Verehrer Rhett Butler.Mit einzigartiger Intensität zeichnet Margaret Mitchell nach, wie eine große Liebe zerbricht und lässt gleichzeitig eine längst vergangene Epoche lebendig werden. Die Südstaatlerin Scarlett O'Hara ist jung und vom Leben verwöhnt. Als Tochter eines Plantagenbesitzers lebt sie im Luxus auf dem Familiengut Tara, und es mangelt ihr nicht an Verehrern. Doch der Ausbruch des Bürgerkriegs verändert mit einem Schlag alles. Plötzlich muss Scarlett mit aller Kraft um die Erhaltung ihres Familienbesitzes kämpfen. Ein Mann taucht immer wieder in ihrem Leben auf und steht ihr in den Wirren der Nachkriegszeit bei: der skrupellose Kriegsgewinnler Rhett Butler. Zwischen ihm und Scarlett entwickelt sich eine große Liebe, doch beide sind auch viel zu stolz und eigensinnig, um diese Liebe zu leben... Margaret Mitchells Klassiker wurde sofort nach Erscheinen im Jahre 1936 zum Bestseller und hat seitdem Millionen Leser auf der ganzen Welt begeistert. Die legendäre Verfilmung drei Jahre später machte Vivien Leigh als Scarlett und Clark Gable als Rhett zum berühmtesten Liebespaar der Filmgeschichte.

die Supernova des Jahres 1572 und die Überwindung der aristotelischen Kosmologie

In der traditionellen Kosmologie galt seit Aristoteles der Himmel als unver�nderlich. Die Erscheinung eines neuen Sterns 1572 und der Kometen nach 1577 erschuetterten diese Gewi�heit. Auf Grund pr�ziser Beobachtungen und Berechnungen gelang der Nachweis, da� die Region oberhalb des Mondes im Gegensatz zur Kosmologie des Aristoteles ver�nderlich ist. Das letzte Drittel des 16. Jahrhunderts erweist sich demnach astronomiegeschichtlich nicht allein von der allm�hlichen Rezeption des heliostatischen Weltsystems gepr�gt, sondern st�rker noch von den Interpretationen �neuer� Erscheinungen am Himmel. Der Band zeichnet die Geschichte der Auffassungen von der Unver�nderlichkeit des Himmels seit Aristoteles nach, diskutiert einzelne traditionelle Alternativen und zeigt, in welch unterschiedlichen Kontexten die neuen Objekte des Himmels interpretiert wurden. Indem neben astronomischen und philosophischen Konzeptionen auch astrologische und theologische Vorstellungen thematisiert werden, entsteht ein Bild der Genese neuzeitlicher wissenschaftlicher Kosmologie, das deren Facettenreichtum zur Geltung bringt. �W.s Werk, das mit dem in dieser Weise exponierten Brahe um einen eigenen Helden kreist, ist von stupender Gelehrsamkeit. Der begrenzende Untertitel verstellt den Blick dafuer, dass hier ueber weite Strecken eine Einfuehrung in die astronomische Diskussion des Mittelalters und der Fruehen Neuzeit gegeben und ein Entwurf zum Verstz�ndnis ihrer Entwicklung geboten wird. [�] Aber das ist nur ein h�chst willkommener Nebeneffekt einer Dissertation, die vorbehaltlos als Opus magnum anzusprechen ist.� Theologische Literaturzeitung .
