From the single-cylinder bikes of the 1950s to the high-performance sportbikes of today, The Complete Book of Ducati Motorcycles showcases the entire spectrum of Ducati. Legendary Ducati motorcycles have something of a rags-to-riches story. This Italian motorcycle manufacturer began by selling motorized bicycles to impoverished residents of post-World War II Italy. Today, Ducati is the world's premier manufacturer of street motorcycles whose sales continue to rise year after year. Its svelte, hyper-accelerating motorcycles are two-wheeled wonders that are fluent in the language of speed. The Complete Book of Ducati Motorcycles traces the stunning chronology of the motorcycles dreamed up by Ducati, from the 1950s to present day. Laid out for the first time in encyclopedia form with gorgeous photography and insights from Ducati expert Ian Falloon, this book offers motorcycle enthusiasts a closer look at the craftsmanship, power, and beauty of these extraordinary motorcycles. The book features all of the motorcycles from Ducati's storied history, including the groundbreaking Desmodromic 750 Super Sport, the Mike Hailwood Replica, the Superbike-dominating 916, and the epic Panigale. From the street bikes that gave birth to the very notion of the modern superbike to the racing motorcycles that dominated tracks in Great Britain, Europe, and North America since the latter part of the twentieth century, The Complete Book of Ducati Motorcycles runs the full gamut of sportbikes. It's a collection that demands shelf space in the library of any true motorcycle collector or fan.

Everything you wanted to know about Moto Guzzi! The oldest European motorcycle manufacturer in continuous production, Italy's Moto Guzzi has built some of the most iconic motorcycles ever produced. Established in 1921, the company is one of the most traditional motorcycle makers and also one of the most innovative. Today Moto Guzzi has a higher profile than ever, thanks to its popularity among celebrities like Ewan McGregor. Moto Guzzi was formed by Carlo Guzzi, Giovanni Ravelli, and Giorgio Parodi after WW I. Carlo Guzzi's first engine design, a horizontal single, defined Moto Guzzi's road-going motorcycles for the company's first 45 years. In the 1950s, Moto Guzzi experienced tremendous success in Grand Prix motorcycle racing. Moto Guzzi has experienced low points as well as high points. In February 1967, a state controlled receiver took ownership of Moto Guzzi. It was while in receivership that Guzzi developed the 90-degree V twin engine that came to define Moto Guzzi. De Tomaso Industries Inc. purchased Moto Guzzi in 1973. In 2000 Aprilia S.p.A acquired Moto Guzzi. In 2004, Piaggio & C. S.p.A acquired Aprilia. With the financial backing of a large corporation like Piaggio, Moto Guzzi was once again on firm financial footing, and sales have been on the rise. For the first time ever, The Complete Book of Moto Guzzi: Every Model Since 1921 collects all of these iconic motorcycle in encyclopedia form, written by widely respected Moto Guzzi expert Ian Falloon.

Günter K. Koschorrek war nicht Heerführer, nicht Wissenschaftler oder Historiker, er hat in seinem Buch zusammengefasst, was er als einfacher Soldat im Grauen des Krieges täglich aufgeschrieben hat. Sein Erleben des Krieges war ein anderes als das in den Stäben oder Befehlsständen. Der Verfasser war 19 Jahre alt, als ihn der Krieg in seiner schlimmsten Phase einholte und ihn in seine unerbittliche Gewalt nahm. Er hatte zu gehorchen und nicht nach dem Warum zu fragen. Das NS-Regime, das seine Ziele gnadenlos verfolgte, hatte eine ganze Generation unter Eid und in die Pflicht genommen, ihre Ideale schändlich missbraucht.

Ein journalistischer Auftrag, bei dem Raoul Duke von seinem Anwalt Dr. Gonzo begleitet wird, führt zu einem unglaublichen Trip, der eine ganze Generation geprägt hat. Mit Johnny Depp und Benicio Del Toro von Terry Gilliam kongenial verfilmt, bleibt Hunter S. Thompsons schonungslose Beschreibung des Drogenkonsums und der radikalen Freiheitssuche der 60er bis heute unerreicht.

Der Einsatz von computerassistierten Systemen wird mittlerweile seit mehr als einem Jahrzehnt intensiv verfolgt und wirft die Frage nach der juristischen Beurteilung der neuen Technik auf. Aufgabe dieser Arbeit ist es, umfassend die strafrechtlichen Probleme aufzuzeigen, welche die Robotik im Allgemeinen und fur den Einsatz im medizinischen Operationssaal im Besonderen mit sich bringt. Die Untersuchung folgt dabei im Wesentlichen dem klassischen Prufungsschema des fahrlassigen Korperverletzungstatbestandes und berucksichtigt die Diskussion in Rechtsprechung und Literatur. Die erarbeiteten Losungen konnen dabei auch fur das Zivilrecht nutzbar gemacht werden. Im Mittelpunkt der Arbeit steht der die Operation vorbereitende und ausfuhrende Arzt. Um einen umfassenden Uberblick zu gewahrleisten, wird nicht nur die Strafbarkeit des Anwenders, d.h. des Arztes, sondern auch die des Betreibers, d.h. der Verantwortlichen der Klinikleitung und des Herstellers, insbesondere in der Entwicklungs- und Einfuhrungsphase der Systeme, erlautert."

- Fascinating Land Rover love stories from around the globe - Includes magnificent new photos - Portraits of passionate owners - faithful Landy owners discuss their adventures - Celebrates the many uses of the Land Rover, from a wine-growing estate in South Africa, to the urban jungle in Germany, as well as Land Rovers used by the emergency services, as mobile cafes, and as a means to cross the Alps On 29th January 2016 the last Land Rover Defender left the factory halls in Solihull (UK) - a Defender 90 Soft Top with heritage outfit - and went directly to the Jaguar Land Rover Collection exhibition. With this, a great story of success ended: the most original of all Land Rover models had been in mass production for 68 years. In 1948 it was developed for agricultural use, but the robustness of the all-wheel drive vehicle got round quickly. The demand never decreased and there were always new versions and engines. Today, 75 percent of all 'Landies' ever built are still in use worldwide. This declaration of love for the British classic presents portraits of all Land Rover generations and of their most passionate owners.
