In the Footsteps of George Borrow

A Journey Through Spain and Portugal

George Borrow - brilliant linguist, expert on gypsy culture and author of Wild Wales (1862) - remains an enigmatic character whose fiction and travel writing mix autobiography and invention. From 1835 to 1840, he worked as an agent of the British and Foreign Bible Society, attempting to distribute Protestant Testaments in fiercely Catholic Spain. The outcome of this controversial and risky enterprise is The Bible in Spain, an account of his wanderings published in 1843. In the Footsteps of George Borrow brings to life the scenery and culture of Spain as well as the complex personality of the man who described it in the 1830s. In the course of his travels, Guy Arnold considers Borrow's ambiguous religious beliefs, his avowed taste for the social lowlife and his mysterious liaison with a widow from Norfolk. He also compares modern Spain with that of Borrow's time and finds - civil war and brigandage apart - that much remains surprisingly the same.

Bill ist IT-Manager bei Parts Unlimited. An einem Dienstagmorgen erhält er auf der Fahrt zur Arbeit einen Anruf seines CEO. Die neue IT-Initiative der Firma mit dem Codenamen Projekt Phoenix ist entscheidend für die Zukunft von Parts Unlimited, aber das Projekt hat Budget und Zeitplan massiv überzogen. Der CEO will, dass Bill direkt an ihn berichtet und das ganze Chaos in neunzig Tagen aufräumt, denn sonst wird Bills gesamte Abteilung outgesourct. Mit der Hilfe eines Vorstandsmitglieds und dessen mysteriöser Philosophie der Drei Wege wird Bill klar, dass IT-Arbeit mehr mit dem Fertigungsbereich in einer Fabrik zu tun hat als er sich je vorstellen konnte. Die Zeit drängt: Bill muss dafür sorgen, dass der Arbeitsfluss auch zwischen den Abteilungen deutlich besser läuft und das Business-Funktionalität zuverlässig bereitgestellt wird. Drei Koryphäen der DevOps-Bewegung liefern hier die rasante und unterhaltsame Story, in der sich jeder, der im IT-Bereich arbeitet, wiederfinden wird. Sie erfahren nicht nur, wie Sie Ihre eigene IT-Organisation verbessern können - nach der Lektüre dieses Buchs werden Sie IT auch nie wieder so sehen wie zuvor.

My friend told me that these heights were favourite stations of robbers. Some two years since, a band of six mounted banditti remained there three days, and plundered whomsoever approached from either quarter: their horses, saddled and bridled, stood picqueted at the foot of the trees, and two scouts, one for each eminence, continually sat in the topmost branches and gave notice of the approach of travellers.
