Von realen Ereignissen im Leben der berühmten Ethnologin Margaret Mead inspiriert, erzählt Lily King in diesem grandiosen, spannenden und sinnlichen Roman ebenso anschaulich wie klug von Besitz und Begierde, Entdeckung und Macht, Liebe und Herrschaft. Neuguinea, Anfang der 1930er Jahre. Drei junge Ethnologen – die schon berühmte und faszinierende Amerikanerin Nell Stone, ihr Mann Fen und der Brite Andrew Bankson – stoßen nach Jahren einsamer Feldforschung aufeinander und entwickeln eine leidenschaftliche Dreiecksbeziehung. Erschöpft von den Versuchen, etwas Verwertbares über die Stämme am Sepikfluss herauszufinden, gelangen die drei Forscher zu den Tam, einem weiblich dominierten Stamm mit ungewohnten Ritualen. Während sie immer tiefer in das Leben der Tam eindringen, werden auch ihre unterschiedlichen Wünsche und Interessen immer deutlicher, die erotische Anziehung zwischen Nell Stone und Andrew Bankson immer intensiver. Schließlich schreitet Fen zu einer dramatischen Aktion mit tragischem Ausgang für alle.

Damien Williams is just an average guy working a dead-end job and tolerating a miserable relationship. His life takes a quick turn as he stumbles into another world called Euphoria - a beautiful world full of elves, witches, pirates, mermaids, dragons and so much more. Damien soon finds that this world is more like home to him than anything he's ever known before, and is quickly recruited on a journey to save it from a threat that could remove the entire world from existence - a bitter witch and a man seeking control and power over the creatures of this new world. Damien discovers that he is capable of so much more than he once believed, and realizes that sometimes what's best for us is to step out of our comfort zone and find the place we belong - and when we do, to never let anything destroy that special world.

Yahwehche is a prophet and the brother of Jesus Christ, who comes to poverty-stricken Haiti with a message of peace and redemption for all mankind. He quickly gathers a devoted following as he ministers to the poor and heals the sick. But just as rapidly, he attracts the censorious attention of the ruthlessly faithless, who persecute and torture Yahwehche when they cannot use his gifts to fuel their own ambitions. Yet Yahwehche, the celestially-radiant being who can withstand every degradation imposed by man, is unable to resist the charms of the seductive prostitute Maria Magdalena. After enduring torture at the hands of the powerful in both Haiti and the Dominican Republic and surviving a howling hurricane, he goes with Maria to a secluded village for physical recuperation and spiritual renewal. But instead, he is intoxicated by their carnal relationship, which causes him to forget the promises made to his disciples and abandon his heavenly mission. Euphoria is a mesmerizing contemporary parable written in luminous prose that depicts a would-be savior's fall from grace. Author Luis Reynoso evokes the inland setting of his story in a way that captures the cultural diversity, political cynicism and hopeful spirit of the people.

Reicht das Aufrechterhalten der wichtigsten Körperfunktionen, um von sich selbst sagen zu können, man sei am Leben? Die Antwort, die der Roman gibt, wird uns womöglich nicht trösten. Aber sie macht atemlos vor Spannung. Fünf junge Männer verbringen ein Wochenende auf einer Berghütte. Als sie ins Tal zurückkehren, sind die Ortschaften verwüstet. Die Menschen sind tot oder geflohen, die Häuser und Geschäfte geplündert, die Autos ausgebrannt. Zu Fuß versuchen sie, sich in ihre Heimatstadt durchzuschlagen. Sie sind allein. Sie sind hungrig. Sie funktionieren, so gut sie können. Tagsüber streifen sie durch das zerstörte Land, nachts durch ihre Erinnerung. Auf der Suche nach einem Grund, am Leben zu bleiben.

Somewhere in the Austrian Alps, a group of men in their thirties have gathered for a weekend away. When they come down from their cabin, the world has ended. As the men wander through this destroyed human landscape, Euphoria's nameless narrator reveals only small, shocking details - a crashed helicopter, a boy sitting impassively beside his murdered parents, a provincial nightclub full of charred bodies. Seeking food and fuel for the fire, but finding only the pointless remnants of their suddenly vanished world, the men realise that all they have left is their lives. And are those really worth anything in a world where their future has crumbled away, their past remains only as an empty taunt and their present is reduced to the monotonous trudge of animal survival? An austere, troubling tale of how quickly men become beasts, Euphoria explores the repressed savagery of human nature and the disturbing meaningless of a world run free from society's restraints.

The architects of the Soviet Union intended not merely to remake their society—they also had an ambitious plan to remake the citizenry physically, with the goal of perfecting the socialist ideal of man. As Euphoria and Exhaustion shows, the Soviet leadership used sport as one of the primary arenas in which to deploy and test their efforts to mechanize and perfect the human body, drawing on knowledge from physiology, biology, medicine, and hygiene. At the same time, however, such efforts, like any form of social control, could easily lead to discontent—and thus, the editors show, a study of changes in public attitude towards sport can offer insight into overall levels of integration, dissatisfaction, and social exhaustion in the Soviet Union.

In the Networked Economy, organizational creativity and flexibility are imperative. Accelerating commercial and social changes coupled with the compounding demands of more powerful stakeholders will obsolete many traditional, rigid, hierarchical organizations. Networked groups of "small", entrepreneurial teams will be the dominant model of high-performance organizations. "Gangs, gall and gossip" will power these Relational teams, and destroy many others, based on how they address the fundamental social needs of people (to belong, to have purpose, and to communicate). By practicing Relational Management, as described in this book, organizations of all types will become "small", entrepreneurial, flexible and creative. They will tap their abundant social energy to build substantial economic and social value. And, they may even experience "Business Euphoria".
