Ein kühnes Meisterwerk – Don DeLillos großer Roman über den 11. September New York am 11. September. Eine Stadt in Asche und Rauch. In eindringlichen Bildern zeichnet Don DeLillo den Ablauf der Ereignisse nach: von den Tätern zu den Opfern, von Hamburg nach New York. Erzählt wird das Leben einer Familie, die berührende Geschichte einer Liebe, der Alltag nach der Katastrophe. Keith Neudecker, der im World Trade Center gearbeitet hat, kann sich am 11. 9. aus einem der brennenden Türme retten. Er sieht, was geschieht, ohne es zu begreifen, und schlägt sich wie in Trance zu seiner Ex-Frau Lianne und seinem kleinen Sohn Justin durch. In ihrer Verzweiflung klammern sich Keith und Lianne aneinander, sie wollen aus der Einsamkeit der Angst in ein gemeinsames Leben zurückfinden. Gespräche, vor allem in Liannes Familie, kreisen um den Schock, um den Terrorismus als ständige Bedrohung. Justin und seine Freunde versuchen im Spiel ihre Angst vor den Terroristen zu überwinden. Keith durchlebt immer wieder das Trauma der Flucht aus den Türmen, und Lianne irrt ziellos durch die Stadt. Und dann sieht sie voller Entsetzen Falling Man, einen Performance-Künstler. Nur mit einem Seil gesichert, stürzt er sich als Chronist des Zeitalters des Terrors hoch oben von den Wolkenkratzern in die Tiefe. Der Terror bestimmt die Realität. »Falling Man« ist ein weiterer Höhepunkt in DeLillos Werk. Von Neuem beweist der Autor, wie scharfsinnig und zugleich sensibel er einschneidende Ereignisse wahrnimmt. Mit großer sprachlicher Kunst und Prägnanz gelingt es Don DeLillo, das scheinbar Unsagbare überzeugend in Worte zu fassen.Die Originalausgabe des Romans erschien am 15. 5. 2007 in den USA.

Für diese Untersuchung wurde dem Autor am 13. 9. 2007 der René Kuczynski-Preis für herausragende Publikationen auf dem Gebiet der Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte verliehen. Der Autor definiert die Wirtschaftsleistung Ostdeutschlands im Vergleich zu Westdeutschland neu. Dazu zieht er in der wissenschaftlichen Literatur vorliegende Berechnungen und eigene Schätzungen heran. Zum einen bestimmt er die Wirtschaftsleistung für die Stichjahre 1936 und 1954 neu, um den Einfluss der Startbedingungen abschätzen zu können. Außerdem berechnet er die Produktion der Industrie und ihrer Branchen auf Basis physischer Angaben für den Zeitraum 1936-1991 sowie darauf aufbauend das gesamte Bruttoinlandsprodukt Ostdeutschlands neu. Die erzielten Ergebnisse sind innovativ und erweitern unser Wissen über Niveau und Entwicklung der Wirtschaft auf dem Gebiet der DDR. Es handelt sich um die derzeit beste, breiteste, fundierteste Berechnung der Wirtschaftsentwicklung der DDR, und zwar im Vergleich mit Westdeutschland.

In Falling, Christopher Pike explores the depth and breadth of human emotion through two brilliantly etched characters: Kelly Feinman, who pays a terrible price to understand the nature of true evil; and Matt Connor, a classic anti-hero who captures the reader's sympathy. Kelly Feinman: Once a brilliant FBI profiler and field agent, Kelly went rogue on her last case, hunting the serial killer known as the Acid Man. Now, still recovering from the madman's brutal assault, regarded by her fellow agents as a weak link, Kelly struggles to find her footing on a new case: the kidnapping of an infant, Jimmy Techer. Making matters worse, Kelly's husband has taken their daughter and left. Kelly fears she cannot even trust her own instincts. Matt Connor: Deeply in love with his girlfriend, Matt is devastated when Amy leaves him for another man. He plots a diabolical revenge that begins with his apparent death. By the time Matt is through, Amy—Jimmy's mother—will know the intensity of Matt's pain, because it will have become her own. And Matt...Matt will pass through the fires of hell and, in the eyes of baby Jimmy, will recover his soul. Matt Connor is a kidnapper. Kelly Feinman is the agent on his trail. They should be enemies. Instead, they become friends, and together, they help each other become whole. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
