Featuring a fresh layout, revised maps, and more detail than ever before, the eagerly anticipated seventh edition of Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide offers collectors and amateurs alike the ultimate resource to the world's best wines. In every way, this edition bears out Parker's stated goal: "To make you a more formidable, more confident wine buyer by providing you with sufficient insider's information to permit the wisest possible choice when you make a wine-buying decision." Understanding that buyers on every level appreciate a good deal, Parker separates overvalued bottles from undervalued, with wine prices instantly shifting according to his evaluations. Indifferent to the wine's pedigree, Parker's eminent 100-point rating system allows for independent, consumer-oriented, inside information. The latest edition of Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide includes expanded information on Spain, Portugal, Germany, Australia, Argentina, and Chile, as well as new sections on Israel and Central Europe. As in his previous editions, Parker provides the reassurance of a simple number rating, predictions for future buying potential, and practical overviews of regions and grapes. Altogether, an indispensable resource from the man the Los Angeles Times calls "the most powerful critic of any kind."

Geotechnical Engineering of Dams, 2nd edition provides a comprehensive text on the geotechnical and geological aspects of the investigations for and the design and construction of new dams and the review and assessment of existing dams. The main emphasis of this work is on embankment dams, but much of the text, particularly those parts related to geology, can be used for concrete gravity and arch dams. All phases of investigation, design and construction are covered. Detailed descriptions are given from the initial site assessment and site investigation program through to the preliminary and detailed design phases and, ultimately, the construction phase. The assessment of existing dams, including the analysis of risks posed by those dams, is also discussed. This wholly revised and significantly expanded 2nd edition includes a lengthy new appendix on the assessment of the likelihood of failure of dams by internal erosion and piping. This valuable source on dam engineering incorporates the 200+ years of collective experience of the authors in the subject area. Design methods are presented in combination with their theoretical basis, to enable the reader to develop a proper understanding of the possibilities and limitations of a method. For its practical, well-founded approach, this work can serve as a useful guide for professional dam engineers and engineering geologists and as a textbook for university students.

Der Preis des Glücks Sie wollen das perfekte Paar sein, Kinder und Beruf unter einen Hut bringen, alles irgendwie richtig machen. Und sie finden die ideale Nanny, die ihnen das alles erst möglich macht. Doch wie gut kann man einen fremden Menschen kennen? Und wie sehr kann man ihm vertrauen? Sie haben Glück gehabt, denken sich Myriam und Paul, als sie Louise einstellen - eine Nanny wie aus dem Bilderbuch, die auf ihre beiden kleinen Kinder aufpasst, in der schönen Pariser Altbauwohnung im 10. Arrondissement. Wie mit unsichtbaren Fäden hält Louise die Familie zusammen, ebenso unbemerkt wie mächtig. In wenigen Wochen schon ist sie unentbehrlich geworden. Myriam und Paul ahnen nichts von den Abgründen und von der Verletzlichkeit der Frau, der sie das Kostbarste anvertrauen, das sie besitzen. Von der tiefen Einsamkeit, in der sich die fünfzigjährige Frau zu verlieren droht. Bis eines Tages die Tragödie über die kleine Familie hereinbricht. Ebenso unaufhaltsam wie schrecklich.
