Sinn Féin has undergone a startling transformation in the last two-and-a-half decades. Under the leadership of its two principal figures Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness the mainstream party of Irish republicanism has changed beyond almost all recognition. It has moved from the margins of political life, on both sides of the Irish border, to a position where it occupies the Deputy First Ministers chair in Northern Ireland and was viewed, until recently, as the coming force in southern Irish politics. In this book, the contours of Sinn Féins recent evolution are considered, with particular emphasis on the various strategic objectives that the party has set itself. Sinn Féins attitude to the Northern Irish peace process is considered at length here and the book challenges the conventional wisdom that would juxtapose republican politics and republican war the notion being that, during the 1990s, republicans exchanged the latter for the former and were, therefore, tamed into becoming a normal political party. The central argument here is that such a view rests on a false dichotomy. It has been said that war is merely the continuation of politics; with respect to Sinn Féin, it is argued, the inverse formulation needs also to be considered, with republican politics seen, by republicans themselves, as an extension of the war. In following through this line of argument, this book attempts to consider republicans on their own terms; to take their thoughts and words seriously and to examine their recent history accordingly.
The 2004 and 2007 enlargements pushed the EUs external border further east as well as closer to unstable areas in the western Balkans. With future enlargements unlikely in the short-term, the EU faces new challenges in securing stable relationships with these neighbouring countries, while not fostering false hopes of early accession.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Ethnologie / Volkskunde, Note: 1,3, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main (Institut für Historische Ethnologie), Veranstaltung: Wirtschaftsethnologische Theorien, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: David Graeber und seine theoretischen Überlegungen über die Werte und das Individuum als Teil der Gesellschaft sowie über Konsum und Freiheit sind Themen dieser Hausarbeit. David Graeber, amerikanische Anarchist und Ethnologe (geb. 1961), ist Autor von Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology und Towards an Anthropological Theory of Value: The False Coin of Our Own Dreams, den beiden Büchern, welche die Grundlage für diese Hausarbeit bilden. Er ist ein bekannter sozialer und politischer Aktivist, der unter anderem an den Protesten des World Economic Forum in New York City (2002) teilnahm. Darüber hinaus ist er Mitglied der Gewerkschaft Industrial Workers of the World. Bis Juni 2007 war Graeber Professor für Ethnologie an der Yale University. In der Wirtschaftswissenschaft geht es immer um die Vorhersage und für jemanden, der einen Produkt hat und es anbietet, ist es von großer Wichtigkeit, möglichst genau zu wissen, was die Anderen, die das Geld haben, wollen. Danach wird die Strategie entwickelt, gerichtet und gehandelt. Das macht aus Wirtschaftskunde eine Wissenschaft, die mehr als jede andere versucht, die Welt mit der sie sich beschäftigt, zu beeinflussen. Sie zeigt die (gefährliche!) Tendenz, an der Welt Teil haben zu wollen. Die Wirtschaft selbst produziert und bildet immer neue Kräfte, die sich mit der Wirtschaft und der Vorrausage beschäftigen, also hat sie sich selbst als Objekt der Untersuchung. Ethnologie dagegen hat sich schon immer mit den Menschen beschäftigt, die anders sind als man selbst, die mit dieser (praktischen und theoretischen) Welt in der sich die Wirtschaftanalytiker bewegten, am geringsten Kontakt hatten. Graeber fasst es so zusammen: Die Wirtschaft strebt der Prognose des individuellen Verhaltens an, die Anthropologie setzt sich das Verstehen von kollektiven Unterschieden als Ziel.

This most recent book from lunar expert Charles J. Byrne combines the latest comprehensive imagery, topography and gravity data from all three recent Moon missions, Kaguya, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and GRAIL. These major polar-orbit surveys are presented here in compact form for the convenience of amateur and practical astronomers concerned with the Moon. Chosen from the Near and Far Sides large craters and basins over 200 km in diameter, each of the 71 highlighted features is depicted with a two-page presentation of the data that includes false color topographic maps next to the mission images. Additionally, the features are presented in the estimated chronological sequence of their creation, based on a consideration of stratigraphy (overlapping layers from neighboring features) and the relative degradation of surface features. Using this sequence as a way to convey the relative ages of lunar features, the author presents various theories concerning the Moons impact and thermal history e.g. the available evidence allows for constraints to be placed on the duration of the Late Heavy Bombardment period. The relationships between impact dynamics and variations in the gravity field of the Moon are also discussed. The new mission data makes possible this renewed conjecture about the history and evolution of the Moon, which is presented here with much worthwhile information for amateurs and professionals alike. Most of Charles J. Byrnes career after receiving a BSEE from RPI and MSEE from Caltech has been spent at Bell Laboratories as a researcher in communications and a manager of the development of operations systems for communication networks. During the Apollo project, he moved to Bellcom, an ATT subsidiary that served as the system engineering arm for the Apollo project managers at NASA Headquarters, where he was responsible for planning for the selection and certification of landing sites for Apollo. This entailed setting requirements and planning operations for the Lunar Obiter missions. This generated an interest in the features of the Moon that led to authoring two Springer books; Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas of the Near Side of the Moon (2005) and The Far Side of the Moon, a Photographic Guide (2008). Charles J. Byrne also authored the Springer Brief, The Moons Near Side Megabasin and Far Side Bulge (2013), partly based on a peer-reviewed paper in Earth, Moon, and Planets (2007).
Aurelio Zen of Rome´s elite Criminalpol is back, but nobody´s supposed to know it. After months in hospital recovering from a bomb attack on his car, he is lying low under a false name at a beach resort on the Tuscan coast, waiting to testify in an imminent anti-Mafia trial. Zen has clear instructions: to sit back and enjoy the classic Italian beach holiday - relaxing in the sun, eating seafood and engaging in a little mild flirtation with the attractive woman sitting under the next umbrella. But Zen is getting restless, and as an alarming number of people are dropping dead around him, it seems just a matter of time before the Mafia manages to finish the job it bungled months before on a lonely Sicilian road. Abruptly the pleasant monotony of beach life is cut short as Zen finds himself transported to a remote and strange world far from home...and wherever he goes, trouble follows. Michael Dibdin was born in 1947. He went to school in Northern Ireland and later to Sussex University and the University of Alberta in Canada. He lived in Seattle. After completing his first novel, The Last Sherlock Holmes Story, in 1978, he spent four years in Italy teaching English at the University of Perugia. His second novel, A Rich Full Death, was published in 1986. It was followed by Ratking in 1988, which won the Gold Dagger Award for the Best Crime Novel of the year and introduced us to his Italian detective, Inspector Aurelio Zen. In 1989 The Tryst was published to great acclaim and was followed by Vendetta in 1990, the second story in the Zen series. His last novel, End Games, was published posthumously in July 2007. 1.
