Journey with Marilyn Way Merryweather as she explores 150 years of her and her husband's family history in "Time in a Box." Inspired by a box of old photographs of her ancestors given to her after her mother's death, Merryweather spent years and countless hours researching the stories behind these faces. The result is this narrative, a story of growing up in America, embracing opportunities, and learning from this country's strength. Merryweather has developed a microcosm of American social history: from immigration and essential farming life, to the western frontier, through the growth of cities, the introduction of higher education throughout the land, and up to the current age of technology. About the Author Marilyn Way Merryweather received a BA from Cornell University and an MA in history from the University of Akron. She and her husband, Tom, currently reside in Akron, Ohio and Oro Valley, Arizona. They have been married for forty-eight years.

Sind wir nicht alle davon überzeugt, dass wir am besten mit äußeren Anreizen wie Geld und Prestige oder durch „Zuckerbrot und Peitsche" zu motivieren sind? „Alles falsch", sagt Daniel H. Pink in seinem provokanten und zukunftsweisenden Buch. Das Geheimnis unseres persönlichen Erfolges ist das zutiefst menschliche Bedürfnis, unser Leben selbst zu bestimmen, zu lernen, Neues zu erschaffen und damit unsere Lebensqualität und unsere Welt zu verbessern. Daniel H. Pink enthüllt die Widersprüche zwischen dem, was die Wissenschaft weiß, und dem, was die Wirtschaft tut – und wie genau dies jeden Aspekt unseres Lebens beeinflusst. Er demonstriert, dass das Prinzip von Bestrafung und Belohnung exakt der falsche Weg ist, um Menschen für die Herausforderungen von Heute zu motivieren, egal ob in Beruf oder Privatleben. In „Drive" untersucht er die drei Elemente der wirklichen Motivation – Selbstbestimmung, Perfektionierung und Sinnerfüllung – und bietet kluge sowie überraschende Techniken an, um diese in die Tat umzusetzen. Daniel H. Pink stellt uns Menschen vor, die diese neuen Ansätze zur Motivation bereits erfolgreich in ihr Leben integriert haben und uns damit entschlossen einen außergewöhnlichen Weg in die Zukunft zeigen.

Lon L Fuller's account of what he termed 'the internal morality of law' is widely accepted as the classic twentieth century statement of the principles of the rule of law. Much less accepted is his claim that a necessary connection between law and morality manifests in these principles, with the result that his jurisprudence largely continues to occupy a marginal place in the field of legal philosophy. In 'Forms Liberate: Reclaiming the Jurisprudence of Lon L Fuller', Kristen Rundle offers a close textual analysis of Fuller's published writings and working papers to explain how his claims about the internal morality of law belong to a wider exploration of the ways in which the distinctive form of law introduces meaningful limits to lawgiving power through its connection to human agency. By reading Fuller on his own terms, 'Forms Liberate' demonstrates why his challenge to a purely instrumental conception of law remains salient for twenty-first century legal scholarship.

Das Eigentum spielt in der modernen Gesellschafts- und Kulturgeschichte eine zentrale Rolle. Die Transformationsprozesse in Mittel- und Osteuropa führen das besonders deutlich vor Augen, doch auch in Westeuropa geraten gängige Vorstellungen über das Eigentum angesichts von Deregulierung und Umverteilung, von neuen Informationstechnologien und neuen Knappheiten unter Druck. Das Eigentumsrecht, zu dem auch Konventionen, Doktrinen und kulturelle Praktiken gehören, prägt Wahrnehmungen, Erfahrungen, Handlungen, gesellschaftliche Strukturen und Vorstellungen. Es kodiert die politische und kulturelle Ordnung, es legt fest, was richtig ist, wer und was anerkannt, geschützt und ausgeschlossen wird. Die Diskurse über Eigentum kreisen daher um prinzipielle Probleme der modernen Gesellschaft, etwa um Fragen nach Freiheit, Verantwortung und Gerechtigkeit.Die Bedeutung des Eigentums wird in diesem Band für verschiedene Entwicklungsperioden vom 18. Jahrhundert bis heute untersucht. Daneben werden Vergleiche zwischen verschiedenen sozialen Gruppen, Gesellschaften und Kulturen auf regionaler, nationaler und systematischer Ebene durchgeführt. Es zeigt sich, daß der individualistische, liberale Eigentumsbegriff in den letzten zwei Jahrhunderten in weiten Gebieten der Welt den Umgang mit Gütern, die sozialen Beziehungen und die wirtschaftlichen, sozialen und kulturellen Verhältnisse geprägt hat, wenn auch mit nationalen und regionalen Unterschieden. Die Autoren verbinden Gesellschafts- und Kulturgeschichte mit Rechtsgeschichte und machen Eigentum zum Ausgangspunkt für die historische Analyse von Gesellschaften und Kulturen.

Die Hölle auf Erden – Die Packende Geschichte eines Justizskandals In der Tradition von Truman Capotes »Kaltblütig« widmet sich John Grisham einem Kriminalfall, der erschütterndes Zeugnis ablegt über die Ungerechtigkeit eines modernen Rechtssystems. Brillant erzählt und getragen von großer Sympathie für seinen Helden, wird Ron Williamsons Schicksal zu einem packenden Thriller, der nicht mehr aus der Hand zu legen ist. Debbie Carter arbeitet als Bardame im »Coachlight Club« in Ada, Oklahoma. Sie ist beliebt bei den Gästen. Auch Ron Williamson, ehemaliger Baseballprofi und Stammgast im Club, sitzt oft bei ihr an der Bar. Eines Morgens wird die junge Frau vergewaltigt und erwürgt in ihrer Wohnung aufgefunden. Sechs Jahre später werden Ron Williamson und sein Freund Dennis Fritz aufgrund einer Falschaussage der Tat bezichtigt. Williamson wird zum Tode, Fritz zu lebenslanger Haft verurteilt. Beide beteuern ihre Unschuld. Elf Jahre verbringt Williamson unter grausamen und entwürdigenden Haftbedingungen in der Todeszelle. Kurz vor der Hinrichtung zeigt eine DNA-Untersuchung, dass weder Fritz noch Williamson die Tat begangen haben können. Sie werden freigesprochen. Der wahre Täter, damaliger Hauptbelastungszeuge der Anklage, wird wenig später verhaftet. Fünf Jahre nach seiner Freilassung stirbt Ron Williamson an den Folgen der Haft.

Sie nimmt sich, was sie will, und nichts hält sie auf ... Judith Rashleigh arbeitet für ein renommiertes Londoner Auktionshaus. Deshalb hält sie es zunächst für ein Versehen, dass ein von ihr als Fälschung entlarvtes Meisterwerk zur Versteigerung angeboten wird. Als sie den Galeristen auf den Fehler hinweist, feuert er sie kurzerhand und raubt ihr jegliche Hoffnung auf eine Zukunft in der Kunstwelt. Doch es gelingt ihr, sich trotzdem weiterhin in den elitären Kreisen zu bewegen und die Hintergründe des millionenschweren Kunstbetrugs aufzudecken, ohne dabei ihre wahre Identität preiszugeben. Ein riskantes Spiel, an dem die junge Britin aber schnell Gefallen findet – und zwar so sehr, dass sie den Spieß schließlich umdreht und sich das nimmt, was ihr zusteht. Um jeden Preis. »›Maestra‹ besticht durch eine starke, scharfsinnige und moralisch vielschichtige Heldin, die den Fans von Stieg Larssons ›Millennium‹-Trilogie und Gillian Flynns ›Gone Girl‹ gut gefallen dürfte« The New York Times

Statistics are just as vital to understanding political science as the study of institutions, but getting students to understand them when teaching a methods course can be a big challenge. In Statistics for Political Analysis, author Theresa Marchant-Shapiro makes understanding the numbers easy. The only introduction to statistics book written specifically for political science undergraduates, this book explains each statistical concept in plain language—from basic univariate statistics and the basic measures of association to bivariate and multivariate regression—and uses real world political examples. Students learn the relevance of statistics to political science, how to understand and calculate statistics mathematically, and how to obtain them using SPSS. All calculations are modeled step-by-step, giving students needed practice to master the process without making it intimidating. Each chapter concludes with exercises that get students actively applying the steps and building their professional skills through data calculation, analysis, and memo writing.
