The Evening News

by Arthur Hailey

A private crisis becomes front-page news when terrorists target a TV anchorman and his family in #1 New York Times-bestselling author Arthur Hailey's riveting novel set in the high-pressure network news industry Anchorman Crawford Sloane, a respected reporter who made his name as a Vietnam War correspondent, thrives on the unpredictability of life in the newsroom. Whether he's covering the imminent crash of an airliner in distress, terror in South America, or riots in Eastern Europe, or dealing with the cold-blooded politics of one of America's premier news organizations, he never loses his cool. With terrorism dominating the evening news, Sloane takes precautions because he knows that as the face of American democracy, he's a prime target for radicals. But when terrorists kidnap his family, he's no longer reporting the news; he's living it. Unwilling to rely on the help of ruthless network executives or the intrepid reporter who was once a rival for the affections of his wife, Sloane sets out to track down the kidnappers himself--and he soon learns that pure terror can lie behind the headlines.

The Event

by Martin Heidegger

Martin Heidegger's The Event offers his most substantial self-critique of his Contributions to Philosophy: Of the Event and articulates what he means by the event itself. Richard Rojcewicz's elegant translation offers the English-speaking reader intimate contact with one of the most basic Heideggerian concepts. This book lays out how the event is to be understood and ties it closely to looking, showing, self-manifestation, and the self-unveiling of the gods. The Event (Complete Works, volume 71) is part of a series of Heidegger's private writings in response to Contributions.

The Event of Charlie Hebdo

by Alessandro Zagato

The January 2015 shooting at the headquarters of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris and the subsequent attacks that took place in the Ile-de-France region were staggeringly violent events. They sparked an enormous discussion among citizens and intellectuals from around Europe and beyond. By analyzing the effects the attacks have had in various spheres of social life, including the political, ideology, collective imaginaries, the media, and education, this collection of essays aims to serve as a contribution as well as a critical response to that discussion. The volume observes that the events being attributed to Charlie Hebdo go beyond sensationalist reports of the mainstream media, transcend the spatial confines of nation states, and lend themselves to an ever-expanding number of mutating discursive formations.

The Event of Postcolonial Shame

by Timothy Bewes

In a postcolonial world, where structures of power, hierarchy, and domination operate on a global scale, writers face an ethical and aesthetic dilemma: How to write without contributing to the inscription of inequality? How to process the colonial past without reverting to a pathology of self-disgust? Can literature ever be free of the shame of the postcolonial epoch--ever be truly postcolonial? As disparities of power seem only to be increasing, such questions are more urgent than ever. In this book, Timothy Bewes argues that shame is a dominant temperament in twentieth-century literature, and the key to understanding the ethics and aesthetics of the contemporary world. Drawing on thinkers such as Jean-Paul Sartre, Frantz Fanon, Theodor Adorno, and Gilles Deleuze, Bewes argues that in literature there is an "event" of shame that brings together these ethical and aesthetic tensions. Reading works by J. M. Coetzee, Joseph Conrad, Nadine Gordimer, V. S. Naipaul, Caryl Phillips, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, and Zoeuml; Wicomb, Bewes presents a startling theory: the practices of postcolonial literature depend upon and repeat the same structures of thought and perception that made colonialism possible in the first place. As long as those structures remain in place, literature and critical thinking will remain steeped in shame. Offering a new mode of postcolonial reading,The Event of Postcolonial Shamedemands a literature and a criticism that acknowledge their own ethical deficiency without seeking absolution from it.

Events as a Strategic Marketing Tool

by Dorothe Gerritsen Ronald Van Olderen

Experiences, encounters and events have come to play an ever-growing role in marketing as their impact is more fully understood. As a profession, however, event marketing is still a relatively new field, with most available literature covering practical project management rather than the strategy behind including events in a marketing campaign. Addressing this gap, Events as a Strategic Marketing Tool reviews the way organizations utilize events to connect with their visitors. It covers the development of the experience economy, the step from strategy to concept, event design and touchpoints. Written in an accessible style, it also considers the areas of marketing within which experiences play a role, such as branding, relationship marketing and city marketing. Concluding with a chapter on effect measurement and evaluation, Events as a Strategic Marketing Tool provides an engaging resource for both students and professionals interested in leisure, tourism and events. Including a wealth of internationally relevant examples, it gives a thorough insight into the way events can help reach strategic marketing goals.
