KAUM EINE NACHRICHT ERSCHÜTTERT SO SEHR wie die Diagnose Krebs. Binnen Sekunden gerät das ganze Leben aus den Fugen – für die Betroffenen, aber auch für ihre Lieben. Hans Jellouschek erzählt sehr einfühlsam die Geschichte der Krebserkrankung seiner Frau Margarete. Mehr als eineinhalb Jahrzehnte hat er sie begleitet – bis zum bitteren Ende. Mit großer Offenheit spricht er vom gemeinsamen Ringen mit der Krankheit, den Ängsten, der Hoffnung und den Bewährungsproben für die Beziehung. Ein Weg, der aber auch die Chance einer Entwicklung für Paare bietet, so Hans Jellouschek. Er schreibt: 'Der Krebs hat uns herausgefordert zu einer Auseinandersetzung mit dem Leben, die uns bereichert und in eine Tiefe der Liebe geführt hat, die wir sonst nicht erreicht hätten.'

In today’s globalized world, traditions of a national Self and a national Other no longer hold. This timely volume considers the stakes in our changing definitions of national boundaries in light of the unmistakable transformation of German and Dutch societies. Examining how the literature of migration intervenes in public discourses on multiculturality and including detailed analysis of works by the Turkish-German writers Emine Sevgi Özdamer and Feridun Zaimoglu and the Moroccan-Dutch writers Abdelkader Benali and Hafid Bouazza, New Germans, New Dutch offers crucial insights into the ways in which literature negotiates both difference and the national context of its writing.

Friedrich Nietzsche’s influence on the development of modern social sciences has not been well documented. This volume reconsiders some of Nietzsche’s writings on economics and the science of state, pioneering a line of research up to now unavailable in English. The authors intend to provoke conversation and inspire research on the role that this much misunderstood philosopher and cultural critic has played – or should play – in the history of economics.

Ein liebevolles Geschenk für Paare oder den Partner! Ist die erste Verliebtheit verflogen, merken wir: Das ersehnte Liebesglück hält auf Dauer nicht von allein. Gewohnheit, Stress und Krisen können die Partnerschaft gefährden. Anhand praktischer Beispiele und persönlicher Erfahrungen zeigen die Autoren, wie es gelingt, buddhistische Grundprinzipien wie Achtsamkeit, Respekt und Eigenverantwortung auf die Paarbeziehung zu übertragen und die Liebe dadurch stärker und tiefer werden zu lassen.

The B-minor Mass has always represented a fascinating challenge to musical scholarship. Composed over the course of Johann Sebastian Bach's life, it is considered by many to be the composer's greatest and most complex work. The fourteen essays assembled in this volume originate from the International Symposium 'Understanding Bach's B-minor mass' at which scholars from eighteen countries gathered to debate the latest topics in the field. In revised and updated form, they comprise a thorough and systematic study of Bach's Opus Ultimum, including a wide range of discussions relating to the Mass's historical background and contexts, structure and proportion, sources and editions, and the reception of the work in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. In the light of important new developments in the study of the piece, this collection demonstrates the innovation and rigour for which Bach scholarship has become known.

A radical new understanding of how medicine is best practiced, from the award-winning author of God's Hotel Over the years that Victoria Sweet has been a physician, “healthcare” has replaced medicine, “providers” look at their laptops more than at their patients, and costs keep soaring, all in the ruthless pursuit of efficiency. Yet the remedy that economists and policy makers continue to miss is also miraculously simple. Good medicine takes more than amazing technology; it takes time—time to respond to bodies as well as data, time to arrive at the right diagnosis and the right treatment. Sweet knows this because she has learned and lived it over the course of her remarkable career. Here she relates unforgettable stories of the teachers, doctors, nurses, and patients through whom she discovered the practice of Slow Medicine, in which she has been both pioneer and inspiration. Medicine, she helps us to see, is a craft and an art as well as a science. It is relational, personal, even spiritual. To do it well requires a hard-won wisdom that no algorithm can replace—that brings together “fast” and “slow” in a truly effective, efficient, sustainable, and humane way of healing.

A Marriage Book with a Difference! A Revolutionary Message“I’ve been married 35 years and have not heard this taught.” “This is the key that I have been missing.” “You connected all the dots for me.” “As a counselor, I have never been so excited about any material.” “You’re on to something huge here.” A Simple MessageA wife has one driving need—to feel loved.

What do you want for your marriage? Want some peace? Want to feel close? Want to feel valued? Want to experience marriage the way God intended? Then why not try some Love and Respect.
