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.

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.

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".

Happiness today is not just a possibility or an option but a requirement and a duty. To fail to be happy is to fail utterly. Happiness has become a religion--one whose smiley-faced god looks down in rebuke upon everyone who hasn't yet attained the blessed state of perpetual euphoria. How has a liberating principle of the Enlightenment--the right to pursue happiness--become the unavoidable and burdensome responsibility to be happy? How did we become unhappy about not being happy--and what might we do to escape this predicament? In Perpetual Euphoria, Pascal Bruckner takes up these questions with all his unconventional wit, force, and brilliance, arguing that we might be happier if we simply abandoned our mad pursuit of happiness. Gripped by the twin illusions that we are responsible for being happy or unhappy and that happiness can be produced by effort, many of us are now martyring ourselves--sacrificing our time, fortunes, health, and peace of mind--in the hope of entering an earthly paradise. Much better, Bruckner argues, would be to accept that happiness is an unbidden and fragile gift that arrives only by grace and luck. A stimulating and entertaining meditation on the unhappiness at the heart of the modern cult of happiness, Perpetual Euphoria is a book for everyone who has ever bristled at the command to "be happy."

Insane Euphoria Speaks: Diary of a Late Pregnancy is one woman's account of her third pregnancy from May 1971 through March 1972. When she first suspects that she is pregnant, she wonders what her husband's reaction might be. Should she or should she not have a third child? In her deepest self, she feels that she would like the profound natural happiness of being pregnant once again. At the same time, she wonders if she and her husband have both the emotional and financial resources to provide for a third child. The narrator tries to balance the anticipated euphoria of the experience against the very substantial demands of a third child. This will be the last pregnancy because she will be thirty-nine years old in two months. The positive side is that she is emotionally and psychologically ready for the experience and expects that she can make it into something more wonderful than her first two pregnancies had been. She served her motherhood apprenticeship with her first two children, and the third time around, she can appreciate her hard-won expertise. She realizes that she will be able to enjoy a mastery of the motherhood experience akin to the professional mastery she enjoyed before motherhood. An added plus to the third pregnancy is that she will be able to keep a journal, something she wanted to do with her first two pregnancies but was never sufficiently in control to do so. Her decision to continue the pregnancy is supported by her husband's enormous happiness at the prospect of a third child. The narrator records both the resources and the limitations of her current situation. She wants the pregnancy to be a beautiful experience and contain all that her previous two pregnancies lacked. She feels she knows what to expect from the experience, and this makes a significant difference. She likes the house where she lives and is grateful for the view of the hill and field across the street from her living room window. This is her relaxing view, her contact with nature and the eternal. The limitations of her situation are the lack of any household or babysitting help and the resulting acute need for some private time to herself. Having been an independent professional woman before she had children, she finds being a full-time at-home mother and an economic dependent a limiting and, sometimes, demeaning experience. There are fluctuations in her relationship with her husband and negotiations about power and money in their everyday life. The relationship is tugged one way by his wanting her to go back to work and the other way by her wanting him to expand his professional practice. The narrator tries to keep anything from marring the enjoyment of her third and final pregnancy. She wants to experience all the pleasure possible. She finds this a time of psychic integration where the discordant elements of her personality are integrated and present more and deeper meaning than she had previously known. The baby moves for the first time, she witnesses her two-year-old learn to talk, and her three-year-old start nursery school. His family, her family, and their friends form a chorus in the background. She experiences increasing dreaminess while she enjoys keeping a journal and, at one point, rereading some of her earlier journals. In the end, it culminates in the birth of a beautiful healthy baby girl.

The hapless lives of frigid Emily, beautiful Louella, the competitive but dim twins Verda and Opal, and baleful Alice (also the lives of the losers they marry or don't) range from hilarious to heartbreaking. Inevitably, these women - equally appealing and appalling - dominate their much younger "Brother," an identity he can only escape by fleeing from them. Now, as a man in late middle-age, Brother must return to the town he escaped long before, in an attempt to cope with the shards of memory that have always haunted him.

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.
