Cadillac Jack: A Novel

From dusty flea markets in Texas to parties in Washington, DC, crawling with political hacks, Cadillac Jack is a classic American novel, timelier than ever. Larry McMurtry’s “big hearted” fiction has been lauded for “taking us places we hadn’t known existed” (Joyce Carol Oates, New York Review of Books). Cadillac Jack does exactly that, inviting readers into the passenger seat of a pearl-colored Caddy with peach velour–covered seats, joining a rodeo-bulldogger-turned-antique- scout at the wheel. “Superbly comic” (Newsday), this rollicking tale echoes the cultural climate of America today, with the cagey yet charming Jack grappling with the capitol’s pretentious elite. As he cruises through relationships with distinctively appealing women—including socialite boutique owner Cindy and discreet mother-of-two Jean—Jack realizes home for him will always be simply barreling down freeways in his Cadillac, wandering the country in search of another obscure treasure. Bolstered with its cast of unforgettable characters, Cadillac Jack entices with the prospect of undiscovered riches around that next bend in the road.

Jeannette Walls ist ein glückliches Kind: Sie hat einen Vater, der mit ihr auf Dämonenjagd geht, ihr die Physik erklärt und die Sterne vom Himmel holt. Da nimmt sie gerne in Kauf, immer mal wieder mit leerem Bauch ins Bett zu gehen, ihre egomanische Künstlermutter zu ertragen oder in Nacht-und-Nebel-Aktionen den Wohnort zu wechseln. Mit den Jahren allerdings werden die sozialen Verhältnisse schlimmer, die Sprüche des Vaters schaler und das Lügengebäude der Eltern so zerbrechlich wie das Schloss aus Glas, das der Vater jahrelang zu bauen versprochen hatte.

The Immigrants' Daughter chronicles the growth of corruption, its highs... its lows, from the early nineteenth century, through the romantic 20s and 30s to the present egregious courtroom dramas. It uncovers the obscene abuse she suffered at the hands of her family and the California Court System. In her unrelenting fight for justice and truth, she found a love few have ever known. The immigrants' daughter created her own fortune from scratch and gave faith, hope, and love to others even her enemies. The author witnessed, in part, the corrupt, inconsolable crimes committed against her by her two sons, and Los Angeles and Santa Barbara Counties, which led to the most bizarre rape ever pulled off by California court judges. They stripped her of her good name, her reputation, her lifetime achievements, her entrepreneurship, and her fortune. A depraved woman medical doctor, fraudulently assisted by the Santa Maria District Attorney and her attorney lover, diagnosed her as having a mental disorder, then Dementia and finally Alzheimer's. They had the Santa Barbara Alzheimer's Association award her a scholarship to a Senior Day Care facility. In essence she was branded as insane when there was nothing wrong with her mental capacities. She did nothing wrong. She was then disqualified from testifying against the corrupt judiciary. This is her story!

As the world becomes increasingly globalized, today’s companies expect to hire engineers who are effective in a global business environment. Although you can find many books covering globalization, most of them are aimed at business, management, or social sciences. Developed with engineers in mind, Global Engineering: Design, Decision Making, and Communication covers the theory, models, and decision making tools for incorporating globalization into engineering work. Written by a multidisciplinary team of experts in industrial, mechanical, and manufacturing engineering and organizational communications, this book is a primer on how to improve designs, make better decisions, and communicate more effectively in an international working environment. The contents of the book reflect the authors’ multidisciplinary perspective and their experience in working on projects around the world. The book presents globalization as a phenomenon affecting the way companies operate and their engineering functions. It uses a case study format based on system improvement projects and real industrial projects, ranging from design to supply chain and logistics problems. This case study format allows for a natural presentation of critical technical and non-technical concepts and their complex interactions. The challenge that engineers face in a global environment results from the need to be aware of interdependencies and to be able to determine which ones are most important in each situation. Unique in its focus on engineering, this book provides a framework for how to better design, make decisions, and communicate in the new era of global competition.

Nur wer Grenzen überschreitet, kann die Welt verändern Jackson, Mississippi, 1962: Die junge Skeeter ist frustriert. Nach dem Studium verbringt sie die Tage auf der elterlichen Baumwollfarm, als einzige ihrer Freundinnen ohne einen Ring am Finger. Sehr zum Missfallen der Mutter. Doch der Mann, mit dem ihre Freundinnen sie verkuppeln wollen, ist ein hochnäsiger Snob. Und dann ist auch noch ihr schwarzes Kindermädchen, bei dem sie stets Trost fand, spurlos verschwunden. Skeeter wünscht sich nur eins: Sie will weg aus dem engen Jackson und als Journalistin in New York leben. Und um diesem Ziel näher zu kommen, verbündet sie sich mit zwei Dienstmädchen, die ebenso unzufrieden sind wie sie: Aibileen zieht inzwischen das siebzehnte weiße Kind auf. Doch nach dem Unfalltod ihres einzigen Sohnes ist etwas in ihr zerbrochen. Und Minny ist auf der Suche nach einer neuen Stelle. Sie ist bekannt für ihre Kochkünste, aber sie ist auch gefürchtet: Denn Minny trägt das Herz auf der Zunge. Und gemeinsam beschließen die drei außergewöhnlichen Frauen, gegen die Konventionen ihrer Zeit zu verstoßen und etwas zu wagen. Denn sie alle haben das Gefühl zu ersticken und wollen etwas verändern – in ihrer Stadt und in ihrem eigenen Leben.
