ASHRAE Research: Improving the Quality of Life ASHRAE is the world’s foremost technical society in the fields of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration. Its members worldwide are individuals who share ideas, identify needs, support research, and write the industry’s standards for testing and practice. The result is that engineers are better able to keep indoor environments safe and productive while protecting and preserving the outdoors for generations to come. One of the ways that ASHRAE supports its members’ and industry’s need for information is through ASHRAE Research. Thousands of individuals and companies support ASHRAE Research annually, enabling ASHRAE to report new data about material properties and building physics and to promote the application of innovative technologies. Chapters in the ASHRAE Handbook are updated through the experience of members of ASHRAE Technical Committees and through results of ASHRAE Research reported at ASHRAE conferences and published in ASHRAE special publications, ASHRAE Transactions, and ASHRAE’s journal of archival research, Science and Technology for the Built Environment. For information about ASHRAE Research or to become a member, contact ASHRAE, 1791 Tullie Circle, Atlanta, GA 30329; telephone: 404-636-8400; www.ashrae.org.

Der Kultroman als eBook! »Unendlicher Spaß vereint literarische Innovation und Lesbarkeit auf eigene, unerhörte, markerschütternde Weise.« Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung »Unendlicher Spa߫ – so nannte James Incandenza seinen Film, der Menschen, die ihn anschauen, so verhext, dass sie sich nicht mehr von ihm lösen können und dabei verdursten und verhungern. Sein Sohn Hal, ein Tenniswunderkind mit außergewöhnlichen intellektuellen Fähigkeiten, studiert an der Enfield Tennis Academy (ETA), die von seinem Vater gegründet wurde. Hier sowie im nahe gelegenen Ennet-House, einem Entziehungsheim für Drogenabhängige, spielt ein Teil der überbordenden Handlung, die jeden literarischen Kosmos sprengt – in einem leicht in die Zukunft versetzten Amerika, das mit Kanada und Mexiko die »Organisation der nordamerikanischen Nationen« bildet und von radikalen Separatisten in Kanada bekämpft wird. 1996 erschien »Infinite Jest« in den USA und machte David Foster Wallace über Nacht zum Superstar der Literaturszene. Nicht allein der schiere Umfang, sondern vor allem die sprachliche Kreativität, die ungeheure Themenvielfalt, die treffsichere Gesellschaftskritik, scharfe Analyse sowie der Humor machen den Roman zum Meilenstein der amerikanischen Literatur. Namhafte Autoren von Dave Eggers bis Jonathan Franzen sehen in diesem Buch ein Vorbild für ihr Schaffen. Ulrich Blumenbach hat sechs Jahre lang an der Übersetzung gearbeitet, und seine kongeniale Übertragung ins Deutsche wurde mit zahlreichen Preisen ausgezeichnet.

Ein großes Epos über die Sklaverei – der bekannteste Roman der Nobelpreisträgerin. Sethe - die auf der Flucht aus der Sklaverei ihr Leben riskierte, ihren Mann verlor und ein Kind begraben musste, die unvorstellbares Leid ertrug und dennoch nicht den Verstand verlor - lebt seit langem in einem kleinen Haus am Rande von Cincinnati, wo sie die Vergangenheit auszulöschen versucht. Doch im Haus Nr. 124 der Bluestone Road treibt ein Spuk sein Unwesen: Der widerspenstige Geist von Sethes Tochter, die vor achtzehn Jahren ums Leben kam, will nicht vergessen werden. Das Kleinkind, dessen Tod Sethe nicht überwinden kann, starb namenlos; sein Grab trägt allein das Wort "Menschenkind". Als Paul D eines Tages vor Sethes Tür steht, reißt er alte Wunden wieder auf - und setzt so einen schmerzhaften Heilungsprozess in Gang... „Menschenkind“ wurde von den Juroren der New York Times zum besten amerikanischen Roman der letzten 25 Jahre gewählt.

Was garantiert uns Wohlstand und sozialen Frieden? Wie ein Mantra kommt die Antwort aus Politik und Wirtschaft: Wachstum, Wachstum, Wachstum! Aber dürfen wir das noch glauben angesichts der Verwerfungen der jüngsten Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrisen - und angesichts der ökologischen Schäden, die unser Wirtschaften produziert? Unsere gesamte Wirtschaftsordnung baut auf ewigem Wachstum auf - aber nun brauchen wir einen anderen Motor, sagt der britische Ökonom Tim Jackson. Er hat im Auftrag der britischen Regierung den Zusammenhang von Wachstum und Wohlstand untersucht. In der aktuellen Debatte sticht seine Analyse hervor: Jackson fordert nicht weniger als die Entwicklung einer neuen Wirtschaftsordnung, die auf einem anderen Wohlstandsbegriff beruht. Ein Maß dafür, wie die Bedürfnisse und Wünsche der Menschen befriedigt werden, müsse darin ebenso eingehen wie die gerechte Verteilung von Waren und Dienstleistungen. Jacksons brisantes Buch, das nun erstmals auf Deutsch erscheint, zählt schon jetzt zu den wichtigsten Publikationen der Postwachstumsökonomie. In griffigem Stil entwickelt der Autor eine glasklare Analyse der aktuellen Situation und der Blockaden, die uns daran hindern, etwas zu ändern. Er entwickelt konkrete Überlegungen für eine nachhaltige Ökonomie und entwirft die glaubwürdige Vision einer blühenden menschlichen Gesellschaft innerhalb der bestehenden ökologischen Schranken.
