Field and Laboratory Methods in Primatology is a manual for students and researchers studying wild primates. Technological advances allow fieldworkers to collect a wide range of data, store samples for later analysis, and collect information remotely. These methods open up opportunities to gain new insights on previously studied populations and are the means of collecting data on species that have, until now, been difficult to study. However, information on the practicalities of using such methodology in the field has largely been lacking. Here, in this indispensible reference, experienced fieldworkers provide the first comprehensive guide to the wide variety of techniques available for the study of wild primates. Covering everything from pre-trip planning to laboratory analysis of endocrine and genetic samples, packed full of tips and emphasising practicalities and ethics throughout, it is a must-have for all field primatologists and others studying free-ranging animals.

Wie so viele? Rashad landet im Krankenhaus, und Quinn steht zwischen den Fronten. Er muss sich entscheiden: Tritt er als Zeuge auf und wird zum Verräter?

Und zwei Jugendliche mittendrin.

"Fast 500.000 verkaufte Exemplare in drei Tagen - die Enthüllung von Bushs ehemaligem Terrorberater Richard Clarke schlägt alle Rekorde" (SPIEGEL ONLINE) Binnen weniger Tage wurde "Against All Enemies" zu einem hochbrisanten Politikum, über das die Medien weltweit berichteten. Was macht die Schlagkraft dieses Buches aus? "Die Bush-Administration hat die Gelegenheit verpasst, Al Qaida zu zerschlagen", schreibt Richard A. Clarke. Sie habe alle Warnungen vor Al Qaida ignoriert, in einem unnötigen Krieg gegen Irak wertvolle Zeit verloren und dem Terrorismus Gelegenheit gegeben, sich neu zu organisieren. Wie kein anderer ist Clarke berechtigt, ein solches Urteil zu fällen. Zwei Jahrzehnte seines Lebens hat er dem Kampf gegen den Terrorismus gewidmet. Er war unter Clinton und Bush Cheforganisator der amerikanischen Anti-Terror-Politik und leitete in den entscheidenden Stunden nach den Anschlägenvom 11. September den Krisenstab im Weißen Haus. Sein Bericht, der sich auf die Entwicklungen vom ersten Golfkrieg bis zu "Bushs Vietnam" im Irak konzentriert, liest sich wie ein autobiografischer Thriller.

In November 1994 the Norwegian electorate rejected membership of the European Union. Professor Archer examines the background to this decision both in terms of an expression of interests within Norway and in terms of national feeling. He then investigates the subsequent interaction between Norway and the EU through the European Economic Area (EEA) - which allowed Norway access to the EU's markets; the Schengen agreement - dealing with justice and border matters and the Common Foreign and Security Policy. It includes discussion of policies that have had a particular effect on Norway, such as those of the gas directive, fisheries and the sale of alcohol and looks at how Norway has adapted itself to EU policy, noting the cases where the country has dug in its heels and when it has been acquiescent. This book will appeal to students and researchers with an interest in European integration and Nordic studies in general.

Swiss Foreign Policy provides in-depth insights into the procedures and constraints of Swiss foreign policy, answering questions such as: * Why is Switzerland not a member of the European Union? * What are the implications of staying apart and how important is neutrality in today's Europe? * What are the implications of federalism and direct democracy on foreign policy? * How should conflicting interests in foreign policy decision-making be dealt with? The book is essential reading to all those interested in foreign policy analysis, the relationship between democracy and international relations, the significance of being a small state in contemporary Europe and the specificities of the Swiss political system.

Der 6. Juli 1944 verhieß für die Bewohner der Stadt Hartfort in Connecticut vergnüglich zu werden. Stattdessen endet er in einer Katastrophe: 167 Menschen sterben in den Flammen des größten Zirkusbrandes der amerikanischen Geschichte. Fesselnd und einfühlsam verfolgt Stewart O’Nan die Schicksale jener Menschen, die an einem scheinbar harmlosen Sommertag losgehen, um sich unterhalten zu lassen, und mit Tod und Schrecken konfrontiert werden. «Ein grandioses Stück Literatur.» (Der Spiegel) «‹Der Zirkusbrand› liest sich spannend wie ein Abenteuerroman, da er fast fiktiv in den vielen Verflechtungen menschlicher Schicksale wirkt und philosophisch in seiner Frage, weshalb gerade an diesem Tag bestimmte Menschen zu einer bestimmten Zeit an diesem bestimmten Ort zusammenkamen.» (NDR) «‹Der Zirkusbrand› ist Journalismus im Dienste der Literatur und Literatur im Dienste der Geschichtsschreibung.» (The New York Times) «Ein großes Buch.» (Süddeutsche Zeitung)

Are democracies less likely to go to war than other kinds of states? This question is of tremendous importance in both academic and policy-making circles and one that has been debated by political scientists for years. The Clinton administration, in particular, has argued that the United States should endeavor to promote democracy around the world. This timely reader includes some of the most influential articles in the debate that have appeared in the journal International Security during the past two years, adding two seminal pieces published elsewhere to make a more balanced and complete collection, suitable for classroom use.
