The Ministry of Fear: An Entertainment (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics Ser. #Vol. 10)

by Graham Greene

In London during the Blitz, an amnesiac must outwit a twisted Nazi plot in this “master thriller” of espionage, murder, and deception (Time). On a peaceful Sunday afternoon, Arthur Rowe comes upon a charity fete in the gardens of a Cambridgeshire vicarage where he wins a game of chance. If only this were an ordinary day. Britain is under threat by Germany, and the air raid sirens that bring the bazaar to a halt expose Rowe as no ordinary man. Recently released from a psychiatric prison for the mercy killing of his wife, he is burdened by guilt, and now, in possession of a seemingly innocuous prize, on the run from a nest of Nazi spies who want him dead. Pursued on a dark odyssey through the bombed-out streets of London, he becomes enmeshed in a tangle of secrets that reach into the dark recesses of his own forgotten past. And there isn’t a soul he can trust, not even himself. Because Arthur Rowe doesn’t even know who he really is. “A storyteller of genius,” Graham Greene composed his serpentine mystery of authentic wartime espionage—and one the author’s personal favorites—while working for MI6 (Evelyn Waugh). But The Ministry of Fear “is more than a mere thriller . . . [it’s a] hypnotic moonstone of a novel” (The New York Times).

The End of the Affair (Vintage Classics Ser. #Vol. 13)

by Graham Greene

Graham Greene’s masterful novel of love and betrayal in World War II London is “undeniably a major work of art” (The New Yorker). Maurice Bendrix, a writer in Clapham during the Blitz, develops an acquaintance with Sarah Miles, the bored, beautiful wife of a dull civil servant named Henry. Maurice claims it’s to divine a character for his novel-in-progress. That’s the first deception. What he really wants is Sarah, and what Sarah needs is a man with passion. So begins a series of reckless trysts doomed by Maurice’s increasing romantic demands and Sarah’s tortured sense of guilt. Then, after Maurice miraculously survives a bombing, Sarah ends the affair—quickly, absolutely, and without explanation. It’s only when Maurice crosses paths with Sarah’s husband that he discovers the fallout of their duplicity—and it’s more unexpected than Maurice, Henry, or Sarah herself could have imagined. Adapted for film in both 1956 and 1999, Greene’s novel of all that inspires love—and all that poisons it—is “singularly moving and beautiful” (Evelyn Waugh).

The Power and the Glory (Novel Ser.novel Series)

by Graham Greene

This prize-winning novel of a fugitive priest in Mexico is quite simply “Graham Greene’s masterpiece” (John Updike, The New York Review of Books). In the Mexican state of Tabasco in the 1930s, all vestiges of Catholicism are being outlawed by the government. As churches are razed, icons are banned, and the price of devotion is execution, an unnamed member of the clergy flees. He’s known only as the “whisky priest.” Beset by heretical vices, guilt, and an immoral past, he’s torn between self-destruction and self-preservation. Too modest to be a martyr, too stubborn to follow the law, and too craven to take a bullet, he now travels as one of the hunted—attending, in secret, to the spiritual needs of the faithful. When a peasant begs him to return to Tabasco to hear the confessions of a dying man, the whisky priest knows it’s a trap. But it’s also his duty—and possibly his salvation. Named by Time magazine as one of the hundred best English-language novels written since 1923, The Power and the Glory is “a violent, raw” work on “suffering, strained faith, and ultimate redemption” (The Atlantic).

The Pot Thief Mysteries Volume Two: The Pot Thief Who Studied Escoffier, The Pot Thief Who Studied D. H. Lawrence, and The Pot Thief Who Studied Billy the Kid (The Pot Thief Mysteries)

by J. Michael Orenduff

Albuquerque pottery dealer/treasure hunter/sleuth Hubie Schuze is back digging up trouble—in this second collection from the “smartly funny” series (Anne Hillerman, author of Spider Woman’s Daughter). A dealer in ancient Native American pottery, Hubert Schuze has spent years searching the public lands of New Mexico for artwork that would otherwise remain buried. According to the US government, he’s a thief, but Hubie knows the real crime would be to allow age-old traditions to die. He honors prehistoric craftspeople by resurrecting their handiwork, and nothing—not even foul play—will stop him in these three installments of the Lefty Award–winning mystery series. The Pot Thief Who Studied Escoffier: When a restaurateur asks him to create one hundred dinner plates for his new Austrian eatery in Santa Fe, Hubie can’t say no to the challenge—or the $25,000 he’ll be paid. But no sooner does he start the project than the fractious kitchen staff starts turning up dead. Hubie will have to dish out some serious detective work if he’s going to collect his fee, save the restaurant, and escape Santa Fe alive. “Funny at a very high intellectual level and deliciously delightful.” —The Baltimore Sun The Pot Thief Who Studied D. H. Lawrence: Eighty years ago, D. H. Lawrence moved to Taos, where a neighbor welcomed him with a stew served in a handcrafted pot made by a legendary craftswoman. Now, the neighbor’s great-grandson wants Hubie to retrieve it. The pot thief agrees, but his search of the Lawrence ranch is interrupted by a blizzard that traps him and several other guests indoors. It soon becomes apparent that one of them is a killer—and Hubie finds himself facing a mystery so shocking it would make Lady Chatterley blush. The Pot Thief Who Studied Billy the Kid: After lowering himself into a cave in search of Anasazi Indian pottery, Hubie uncovers a long-dead corpse, buried where the ancient tribe would never have left a body. As he puzzles over this discovery, he hears a chilling sound: his truck, left behind on the cliff face, being driven away. After a narrow escape, Hubie returns with his best friend, Susannah, to try to identify the dead man. What they find instead is a mystery that takes them back not to the days before Columbus, but to the Wild West of Billy the Kid . . .

Collaborative Innovation Networks: Building Adaptive And Resilient Organizations (Studies On Entrepreneurship, Structural Change And Industrial Dynamics Ser.)

by João Leitão Francesca Grippa Julia Gluesing Ken Riopelle Peter Gloor

This unique book reveals how Collaborative Innovation Networks (COINs) can be used to achieve resilience to change and external shocks. COINs, which consist of 'cyberteams' of motivated individuals, are self-organizing emergent social systems for coping with external change. The book describes how COINs enable resilience in healthcare, e.g. through teams of patients, family members, doctors and researchers to support patients with chronic diseases, or by reducing infant mortality by forming groups of mothers, social workers, doctors, and policymakers. It also examines COINs within large corporations and how they build resilience by forming, spontaneously and without intervention on the part of the management, to creatively respond to new risks and external threats. The expert contributions also discuss how COINs can benefit startups, offering new self-organizing forms of leadership in which all stakeholders collaborate to develop new products.

Fan-Out Wafer-Level Packaging

by John H. Lau

This comprehensive guide to fan-out wafer-level packaging (FOWLP) technology compares FOWLP with flip chip and fan-in wafer-level packaging. It presents the current knowledge on these key enabling technologies for FOWLP, and discusses several packaging technologies for future trends. The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) employed their InFO (integrated fan-out) technology in A10, the application processor for Apple’s iPhone, in 2016, generating great excitement about FOWLP technology throughout the semiconductor packaging community. For many practicing engineers and managers, as well as scientists and researchers, essential details of FOWLP – such as the temporary bonding and de-bonding of the carrier on a reconstituted wafer/panel, epoxy molding compound (EMC) dispensing, compression molding, Cu revealing, RDL fabrication, solder ball mounting, etc. – are not well understood. Intended to help readers learn the basics of problem-solving methods and understand the trade-offs inherent in making system-level decisions quickly, this book serves as a valuable reference guide for all those faced with the challenging problems created by the ever-increasing interest in FOWLP, helps to remove roadblocks, and accelerates the design, materials, process, and manufacturing development of key enabling technologies for FOWLP.

Sozialraum erforschen: Qualitative Methoden in der Geographie

by Jeannine Wintzer

Dieses Buch stellt 21 Forschungsarbeiten zur Erforschung des Sozialraums vor und beschäftigt sich im Zuge dessen mit (1) dem Theorie-Methoden-Verhältnis, (2) der konkreten methodischen Umsetzung eines Forschungsprojektes und (3) den notwendigen Reflexionen im Hinblick auf das geographische Handeln. Denn geographisches Denken und Forschen ist durch Paradigmen- und Methodenpluralismus geprägt. Beides befruchtet die Geographie, stellt Studierende und Doktorierende jedoch auch vor große Herausforderungen, da für die Vielzahl von Forschungsfragen nicht eine allgemeingültige Theorie und generalisierende Methode zur Anwendung kommen kann. Fragen wie „Welche sozialräumlichen Praktiken können mit welcher Theorie und Methode analysiert werden?“, „Wie kann Forschungslogik und Gegenstandsangemessenheit gewährleistet werden?“ und „Welche Gütekriterien garantieren ‚gute Forschung‘?“ sind Fragen, die innerhalb von Forschungsprozessen immer wieder aufkommen. Die Beiträge geben forschungspraktische Antworten und motivieren für einen kreativen, transparenten und nachvollziehbaren Forschungsprozess.

Influencer Relations: Marketing Und Pr Mit Digitalen Meinungsführern

by Annika Schach Timo Lommatzsch

Die Zusammenarbeit mit digitalen Influencern wird für die Marketing- und PR-Abteilungen großer Unternehmen immer interessanter. Neben klassischer Werbung, Media Relations und Content Marketing gehört auch das Influencer Marketing mittlerweile zum Handwerkszeug der Unternehmenskommunikation. Aber was sind eigentlich Influencer? Influencer sind die Meinungsführer und Meinungsmacher des digitalen Zeitalters. Typischerweise haben sie sich über verschiedene digitale Kanäle (wie Blogs und Social Media) ein Netzwerk aufbauen können, in dem sie dank einer gewissen Themenkompetenz als Anlaufquelle für bestimmte Informationen gelten. Influencer sind in der Regel also weder Journalisten noch klassischen Testimonials oder Prominente, die seit jeher in der Werbung als Botschafter eingesetzt werden, sondern viel mehr ganz normale Menschen, die sich in der digitalen Öffentlichkeit den Ruf eines Experten für bestimmte Themen erarbeiten konnten. In Unternehmen gilt daher die Pflege der Influencer Relations als Weiterentwicklung des Empfehlungsmarketings. Denn auch wenn die Theorie die Wirksamkeit des Influencer Marketings noch oft kritisch diskutiert, sind Unternehmen, die mittlerweile - ausschließlich oder verstärkt - auf diese Form der Kommunikation setzen, sehr erfolgreich damit. Dieses Grundlagenwerk bietet erstmals eine fundierte Aufbereitung der Felder Influencer Relations und Influencer Marketing. Neben einer umfassenden Definition und Abgrenzung der wichtigen Begrifflichkeiten stellt es vor allem die Aspekte der strategischen Planung und praktischen Umsetzung vor und erläutert die Themen Evaluation/Key Performance Indicators sowie rechtliche und medienethische Grundlagen. Führende Experten aus der Praxis geben anhand aktueller Best-Cases einen Einblick in den aktuellen Status quo der jungen Disziplin, der vor allem für Vertreter aus Unternehmen und Agenturen interessant ist. Insgesamt ein lohnendes Buch für Kommunikations- und Marketingexperten wie auch Studierende der Kommunikationswissenschaften sowie der Public Relations und des Marketings.

Tailored Light 1: High Power Lasers For Production (Rwthedition Ser.)

by Reinhart Poprawe Konstantin Boucke Dieter Hoffman

The Laser world consists basically of two areas, which are necessary and in many cases also sufficient for effective innovation: The right laser for the right application. For the individual application that means the determination of optimized process parameters in terms of laser power, peak power/ intensity, focus geometry and dimension, pulse length, pulse repetition rate and wavelength to name only the six most important ones. Once these parameters are identified, the corresponding Laser has to be selected on the basis of commercial availability. Obviously there is no such thing than "One Laser for all". The situation is rather comparable with electrical power, were depending on the demand of the application in terms of voltage, current and time corresponding power supplies need to be tailored, however, with the difference that in the case of the Laser the variety of parameters is even higher, thus the technology is more complex but on the other hand much more flexible in terms optimizing the source to the application. As a consequence it is suggested to generate two volumes on Lasers and Applications named "Tailored Light".

The Global Life of Austerity: Comparing Beyond Europe (Critical Interventions: A Forum for Social Analysis #17)

by Theodoros Rakopoulos

Austerity and structural adjustment programs are just the latest forms of neoliberal policy to have a profoundly damaging impact on the targeted populations. Yet, as the contributors to this collection argue, the recent austerity-related European crisis is not a breach of erstwhile development schemes, but a continuation of economic policies. Using historical analysis and ethnographically-grounded research, this volume shows the similarities of the European conundrum with realities outside Europe, seeing austerity in a non-Eurocentric fashion. In doing so, it offers novel insights as to how economic crises are experienced at a global level.

The Experience of Neoliberal Education (Higher Education in Critical Perspective: Practices and Policies #4)

by Bonnie Urciuoli

The college experience is increasingly positioned to demonstrate its value as a worthwhile return on investment. Specific, definable activities, such as research experience, first-year experience, and experiential learning, are marketed as delivering precise skill sets in the form of an individual educational package. Through ethnography-based analysis, the contributors to this volume explore how these commodified "experiences" have turned students into consumers and given them the illusion that they are in control of their investment. They further reveal how the pressure to plan every move with a constant eye on a demonstrable return has supplanted traditional approaches to classroom education and profoundly altered the student experience.

Intimate Mobilities: Sexual Economies, Marriage and Migration in a Disparate World (Worlds in Motion #3)

by Christian Groes Nadine T. Fernandez

As globalization and transnational encounters intensify, people’s mobility is increasingly conditioned by intimacy, ranging from love, desire, and sexual liaisons to broader family, kinship, and conjugal matters. This book explores the entanglement of mobility and intimacy in various configurations throughout the world. It argues that rather than being distinct and unrelated phenomena, intimacy-related mobilities constitute variations of cross-border movements shaped by and deeply entwined with issues of gender, kinship, race, and sexuality, as well as local and global powers and border restrictions in a disparate world.
