It is 1862, though not the 1862 it should be. Time has been altered, and Sir Richard Francis Burton, the king´s agent, is one of the few people who know that the world is now careening along a very different course from that which Destiny intended. When a clockwork-powered man of brass is found abandoned in Trafalgar Square, Burton and his assistant, the wayward poet Algernon Swinburne, find themselves on the trail of the stolen Garnier Collection of black diamonds rumoured to be fragments of the Lemurian Eye of Naga, a meteorite that fell to Earth in prehistoric times. His investigation leads to involvement with the media sensation of the age: the Tichborne Claimant, a man who insists that he´s the long lost heir to the cursed Tichborne estate. Monstrous, bloated, and monosyllabic, he´s not the aristocratic Sir Roger Tichborne known to everyone, yet the working classes come out in force to support him. They are soon rioting through the streets of London, as mysterious steam wraiths incite all-out class warfare. From a haunted mansion to the Bedlam madhouse, from South America to Australia, from séances to a secret labyrinth, Burton struggles with shadowy opponents and his own inner demons, meeting along the way the philosopher Herbert Spencer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Florence Nightingale, and Charles Doyle (father of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle).Can the king´s agent expose a plot that threatens to rip the British Empire apart, leading to an international conflict the like of which the world has never seen? And what part does the clockwork man have to play? Burton and Swinburne´s second adventure, The Clockwork Man of Trafalgar Square is filled with eccentric steam-driven technology, grotesque characters, and a deepening mystery that pushes forward the three-volume story arc begun in The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack. 1.

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,0, Free University of Berlin (Englische Philologie), course: Oral and Writing Skills, language: English, abstract: In February 2014, the former catering worker Valeria Jones sued her employer, the Bon Appetit Management Co. in Oregon, United States, after co-workers numerous times referred to her as female. Jones felt offended by this term since she identified as gender-neutral (Andersen 2014). US$ 518,682 were adjudged to Jones as compensation money for pronoun pain and humiliation (Owens 2014). This lawsuit , in which a particular usage of language was punished, demonstrates how quickly the idea of a genderised language can be exaggerated and thus discredited. However, it does not mean that a language which is sensitive towards sex and gender should be abandoned for its realisation might so easily be distorted. An enlightened society is indeed in need of a language that is gender-inclusive. Yet, taking into account the case of Valeria Jones, the inevitable question must arise whether and when such a language should be enforced by law and policy. In the following paragraphs, it is to be shown that a gender-inclusive language has to be enforced (only), when its non-application causes legal consequences by excluding people from rights. In all other cases, common sense is likely to be more thoughtful an adviser. Therefore, this paper is dedicated to the practical aspects of a gender-inclusive language and its realistic implementation. Hopefully, it will have a share in reconciling the still ongoing differences between proponents and opponents of a genderised language.
In a win-win action, both parties win, and a common victory is greater than it is ever possible to achieve alone. There is no upper boundary to how good the results that are possible to achieve together, compared to pursuing one´s own advantage. Real win-win thinking is never a game against the other party, from which all game theoretical solutions look to start, but involves cooperation with all the players. To act in competition with an opponent is not as successful as acting in win-win cooperation with such a party that has same values and goals as you. Also, a common dialog is needed. Win-win thinking can, in world politics, completely compensate the now prevalent violence-based power politics. For hundreds, and possibly thousands of years, political actors have acted according to its requirements. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Farinacci.

Everything you´ve been taught about the World War II ´´internment camps´´ in America is wrong: They were not created primarily because of racism or wartime hysteria They did not target only those of Japanese descent They were not Nazi-style death camps In her latest investigative tour-de-force, New York Times best-selling author Michelle Malkin sets the historical record straight - and debunks radical ethnic alarmists who distort history to undermine common-sense, national security profiling. The need for this myth-shattering book is vital. President Bush´s opponents have attacked every homeland defense policy as tantamount to the ´´racist´´ and ´´unjustified´´ World War II internment. Bush´s own transportation secretary, Norm Mineta, continues to milk his childhood experience at a relocation camp as an excuse to ban profiling at airports. 1. Language: English.

This book recalls young writers who made their debut in the Third Reich or experienced their literary breakthrough in this period only, to fall victim to dictatorship, organized terror, and war as supporters, accomplices, disparagers, or opponents of National Socialism. Cross-sectional overviews and case descriptions are used to uncover the traces of this lost generation and reveal their literary legacy. The result is a collection of literary ruins and biographical debris that for esthetic or political reasons amply deserve to be recovered from the collective oblivion to which they have been consigned.
