Some say that outlaws no longer exist, that the true spirit of the American West died with the legendary bandits of pulp novels and bedtime stories. Charlie Hood knows that nothing could be further from the truth. These days he patrols vast stretches of the new American West, not on horseback but in his cruiser. The outlaws may not carry six-shooters, but they're strapped all the same. Along the desolate and dusty roads of this new frontier, Hood prefers to ride alone, and he prefers to ride at night. At night, his headlights illuminate only the patch of pavement ahead of him: all the better to hide from the demons--and the dead outlaws--receding in his rearview mirror. But he doesn't always get what he wants--certainly not when he's assigned a partner named Terry Laws, a county veteran who everyone calls "Mr. Wonderful. " And not when Laws is shot dead in the passenger seat and Hood is left to bear witness to someone who knew that Mr. Wonderful didn't always live up to his nickname. As he sets out to find the gunman, Hood knows one thing for sure: The West is a state of mind, one where the bad guys sometimes wear white hats--and the good guys seek justice in whatever shade of gray they can find it.

Reparations of Nazi Victims in Postwar Europe traces reparations back to their origins in the final years of the Second World War, when victims of Nazi persecution for the first time articulated demands for indemnification en masse. Simultaneous appearance of claims in New York, London, Paris and Tel Aviv exemplified the birth of a new standard in political morality. Across Europe, the demand for compensation to individuals who suffered severe harm gained momentum. Despite vast differences in their experiences of mass victimisation, post-war societies developed similar patterns in addressing victims' claims. Regula Ludi chronicles the history of reparations from a comparative and trans-national perspective. This book explores the significance of reparations as a means to provide victims with a language to express their unspeakable suffering in a politically meaningful way.
What we ate, how we ate, and how eating changed during America's first real food revolution, 1900-1910. Before Julia Child introduced the American housewife to France's cuisine bourgeoise, before Alice Waters built her Berkeley shrine to local food, before Wolfgang Puck added Asian flavors to classical dishes and caviar to pizza, the restaurateurs and entrepreneurs of the early twentieth century were changing the way America ate. Beginning with the simplest eateries and foods and culminating with the emergence of a genuinely American way of fine dining, Repast takes readers on a culinary tour of early-twentieth-century restaurants and dining. The innovations introduced at the time--in ingredients, technologies, meal service, and cuisine--transformed the act of eating in public in ways that persist to this day. Illustrated with photographs from the time as well as color plates reproducing menus from the New York Public Library's Buttolph Menu Collection, Repast is a remarkable record of the American palate.

Richard Sembera introduces the reader to the essential features of BEING AND TIME, Heidegger's main work in clear and unambiguous English. He dispels the nimbus of unintelligibility surrounding Heidegger's thought, a nimbus that Heidegger himself helped create and that has tended to confine serious Heidegger scholarship to closed circles. This is not a work about the "exisistentialist" Heidegger, the "Nazi" Heidegger, the "gnostic" Heidegger, or the "mystic" Heidegger. Nor is is a "diluted" Heidegger for beginners. REPHRASING HEIDEGGER interprets the philosopher on his own terms, covering all the main aspects of BEING AND TIME, and is particularly interesting for its detailed analysis of the structure and contents of this epoch-making philosophical work. REPHRASING HEIDEGGER includes a unique glossary of technical terms which recur frequently throughout BEING AND TIME whose translation is problematic or uncertain. It also includes a German-English lexicon which catalogues the translations of Heidegger's terms in the most important English translations of BEING AND TIME. This is the first detailed commentary in English by a Heidegger specialist trained at Heidegger's own university by the world-renowned Heidegger scholar Prof. F.-W. von Herrman, the editor of the most important volumes of Heidegger's collected works in German.
