Global eBook 2017

The Global eBook Report 2017 is highlighting, and measuring the relevant international trends: - Tracking main market developments and the diversity of relevant drivers in North and South America, Europe, and Asia; - The segmentation of book markets in print and digital; - European ebook markets in great and previously unavailable detail, based on in depth data provided by leading distributors; - Ebooks in the context of the overall transformation in international publishing; - Global players, and their impact on re-shaping the international business of books. By 2017, ebooks are so much more than yet another format and edition of printed books. Instead, in a global perspective, with in depth data analysis allow a realistic and precise understanding of how consumer publishing has become a highly diverse and segmented business, with hugely different developments in the big English language countries, in continental Europe and in emerging economies.

The Declared Enemy

This posthumous work brings together texts that bear witness to the many political causes and groups with which Genet felt an affinity, including May '68 and the treatment of immigrants in France, but especially the Black Panthers and the Palestinians. Genet speaks for a politics of protest, with an uncompromising outrage that, today, might seem on the verge of being forgotten.

Writing Marginality in Modern French Literature

Writing Marginality in Modern French Literature, first published in 2001, explores how cultural centres require the peripheral, the outlawed and the deviant in order to define and bolster themselves. It analyses the hierarchies of cultural value which inform the work of six modern French writers: the exoticist Pierre Loti; Paul Gauguin, whose Noa Noa enacts European fantasies about Polynesia; Proust, who analyses such exemplary figures of exclusion and inclusion as the homosexual and the xenophobe; Montherlant, who claims to subvert colonialist values in La Rose de sable; Camus, who pleads an alienating detachment from the cultures of both metropolitan France and Algeria; and Jean Genet. Crucially Genet, who was typecast as France's moral pariah, in charting Palestinian statelessness in his last work, Un Captif amoureux (1986), reflects ethically on the dispossession of the Other and the violence inherent in the West's marginalization of cultural difference.

Bibliographie zur Kultur- und Landeskunde der Bukowina 1991-1995

Diese Bibliographie ist bemuht, die einschlagigen Publikationen zum Thema Bukowina moglichst vollstandig zu erfassen. Das Land, Geologie und Geographie, Flora und Fauna, Geschichte und Statistik, Stadte und Gemeinden, Bevolkerung und Volkskunde, Bildungswesen und Kirchen, Kunst und Kultur, Wirtschaft und Biographien sind die Hauptthemen dieser Sammlung, neben sehr vielen Untergliederungen der verschiedensten Art etc. Auf dem Gebiet der "biographischen Arbeiten," die einen bemerkenswert grossen Anteil der Titel umfassen, soll eine brauchbare Grundlage geschaffen werden fur ein immer noch fehlendes, deutschsprachiges biographisches Lexikon der Bukowina. Hilfreich ist diese bibliographische Sammlung vor allem auch auf Gebieten, die bislang noch nicht grundlegend und wissenschaftlich behandelt wurden, wie z.B. der Wirtschaftsgeschichte.

How are businesses responding to global changes in markets driven by changes in technology? Whatever the industry, the trends are familiar: globalization and the rise of industrial conglomerates, mergers and acquisitions, the networking of businesses and markets, outsourcing and shifts in the distribution of resources and production, all reflected in the emergence of new players, new products and services and new forms of competition. As arguably the first knowledge-based business, book publishing provides an ideal setting for the study of challenge and opportunity. The industry is currently experiencing fierce levels of competition, extreme financial pressures, restructuring and the threat ...

Das alltägliche Leben von ethnischen Minderheiten in Österreich ist für viele ein unbekanntes Gebiet. Darüberhinaus werden Minderheiten als soziales und wirtschaftliches Problem gesehen, doch wird das im öffentlichen Diskurs kaum hinterfragt. Am Ende des vergangenen Jahrhunderts gab nur wenige literarische Erzeugnisse, die Minderheiten- oder Migrantenerfahrung in den Mittelpunkt stellten und von der Literaturkritik wurden diese Texte nur am Rande wahrgenommen. Diese Studie analysiert fünf Werke von vier AutorInnen unterschiedlicher Herkunft (Milo Dor, Ceija Stojka, Barbara Frischmuth und Vladimir Vertlib), die sich mit eben diesem Thema auseinandersetzen. In der Analyse und Interpretation der Texte wird Fragen von Alterität und Identität, Kultur und Ethik, Ausgrenzung und der Rolle des Staates nachgegangen.
