"Ich werde verfolgt" - "Wo sind sie Sie? Ich komme sofort!" - "Nein, nicht jetzt, ich werde am Telefon belästigt." Na dann, glaubt Pawel Höchst, der alte Seebär, der sich in Rostock als Privatdetektiv niedergelassen hat, ist es auch nicht so eilig. Da kann er auch erst einmal mit der Suche nach einem anständigen French 75 weitermachen. Nur schade, dass seine hübsche Klientin wenig später tot ist. Als Pawel der Sache auf den Grund gehen will, gerät er auch noch ins Fadenkreuz der Ermittler von Kripo und BKA, die ihn für den geheimnisvollen Serienkiller halten, der in ganz Deutschland wahllos Frauen umbringt. Aus der U-Haft entlassen, begibt er sich auf die Suche nach dem wahren Täter. Denn jeder hinterlässt eine Spur - und Pawel ist jetzt richtig sauer. Richard R. Roesch schickt seinen bodenständigen Ermittler vom Ostseestrand in eine völlig fremde Welt: tote Dichter und ihre versponnenen Theorien, lebende Dichter und ihre rätselhaften Texte, Jet-Set und Kulturschickeria. Und die Polizei? "Leute schickt das Arbeitsamt ?" Richard R. Roesch, bürgerlich Volker H. Altwasser, geboren 1969 in Greifswald, lebt und schreibt in Rostock. Mit seinen Romanen "Letztes Schweigen" und "Letzte Haut" hat er grosses Aufsehen erregt. 2009 erreichte der Schriftsteller die Endrunde beim Alfred-Döblin-Preis, 2010 war er für den Ingeborg-Bachmann-Preis nominiert.

The inclusion of non-literary, as well as literary texts serves to illustrate some of the many varieties of French whether in legal, scientific, epistolatory, administrative or liturgical or in more popular domains, including attempts to represent spoken usage. This is essential reading for the undergraduate student of French.

The notion of French exceptionalism is deeply embedded in the nation's self-image and in a range of political and academic discourses. Recently, the debate about whether France really is "exceptional" has acquired a critical edge. Against the background of introspection about the nature of "national identity," some proclaim "normalisation" and the end of French exceptionalism, while others point out to the continuing evidence that France remains distinctive at a number of levels, from popular culture to public policy. This book explores the notion of French exceptionalism, places it in its European context, examines its history and evaluate its continuing relevance in a range of fields from politics and public policy to popular culture and sport.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich BWL - Investition und Finanzierung, Note: 2,0, Hochschule fur Wirtschaft und Recht Berlin, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Seit seiner theoretischen Begrundung durch unabhangig voneinander gefuhrte Untersuchungen in den sechziger Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts hat das Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) zur Bestimmung von Kapitalkosten stetig an Einfluss in der wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Praxis gewonnen. Mit dem von William Sharpe, John Lintner und anderen entwickelte Modell ist es moglich einen kapitalmarktorientierten Eigen-kapitalkostensatz zu bestimmen, der sich vor allem durch das Risiko der Unternehmung im Bezug zum Marktrisiko bestimmt. Die Attraktivitat des Modells ist leicht nachzuvollziehen: Mithilfe eines Faktors, dem Marktrisikofaktor, und der Zuhilfenahme historischer Renditen lassen sich scheinbar prazise Aussagen uber zukunftige Rendite-erwartungen treffen. Und tatsachlich scheint der Zusammenhang fur gewisse Perioden nachweisbar zu sein. Fama und French (1992) zeigen auf, dass fur die Zeit von 1926 bis 1941 und mit nachlassender Genauigkeit auch fur die langere Periode von 1926-1968 ein deutlicher Zusammenhang zwischen der Grosse und der erwirtschafteten Rendite besteht. Diese und andere Studien (Womack and Zhang, 2003; Fama and French, 2004) belegen zudem, dass das einfache auf einem Faktor basierende Modell fur Renditen nach 1968 keine hinreichende Erklarung liefert. Aus diesem Grund hat die wirtschaftswissenschaftliche Forschung versucht ein Modell zu finden, dass die Realitat besser abbildet als es durch das CAPM der Fall ist. Im vorliegenden Text wird einer der vielversprechendsten Ansatze beschrieben: Das Drei Faktor Modell von Eugene F. Fama und Kenneth R. French. Hierfur wird im Abschnitt zwei noch einmal kurz auf die Bedeutung der Eigenkapitalkosten und die Funktionsweise des CAPM eingegangen. Dies erscheint auch vor dem Hintergrund wichtig, dass das Drei-Faktor-Modell letztlich eine Erweiterung d"

French is used on every continent, spoken not only in France but also in Belgium, Switzerland, North America, the Caribbean, Polynesia and Africa. This is a comprehensive and accessible guide to the structure of French, suitable for those with little prior knowledge of linguistics or of the French Language. It clearly introduces the language's history, phonetics (pronunciation), phonology (sound system), morpho-syntax (how words and sentences are formed), pragmatics (how speakers express meaning), and lexicology (the study of word composition and derivation) - with each chapter showing how these aspects are subject to regional and social variation. English translations are provided for all examples, and the book contains an extensive bilingual glossary of linguistic terms, and numerous exercises and essay questions in every chapter. French: A Linguistic Introduction will be welcomed by advanced language learners, and by linguists studying the structure of this important language.

Divided into three main sections on Phonology, Syntax and Semantics, this new volume on variation in French aims to provide a snapshot of the state of sociolinguistic research inside and outside metropolitan France. From a diatopic perspective, varieties in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Africa and Canada are considered, mainly with respect to phonological features but also focusing on syntactic and lexical evolutions (the relative clause in Ivorian French and discourse markers in Canadian French). The acquisition of stylistic features of French figures in chapters on both first and second language learners and variation across different genres is addressed with respect to non-standard non-finite forms. Finally, a section on semantic change traces the way that interactional and other socio-historical factors affect word meaning. The volume will appeal to (socio-)linguists with an interest in contemporary French as well as to advanced undergraduates and post-graduate students of French and specialists in the field.

This book gives the reader a straightforward and continuous survey of the history of the French Foreign Legion. By outlining the Legion’s vicissitudes, victorious campaigns, epic marches, heroic and sometimes hopeless stands, dirtiest combats and dramatic defeats, but also by briefly placing the Legion back in the historical background of France, and by describing its development, organization, uniforms, equipments and weapons, the author hopes to dispel myths, and try to give a true and accurate picture of what the French Foreign Legion has been from 1831 until today. There are well-researched, detailed line drawings throughout.
