In The Death and Life of Great American Cities durchleuchtet Jane Jacobs 1961 die fragwürdigen Methoden der Stadtplanung und Stadtsanierung in Amerika, der "New Yorker" nannte es das unkonventionellste und provozierendste Buch über Städtebau seit langem. Die deutsche Ausgabe wurde schnell auch im deutschsprachigem Raum zu einer viel gelesenen und diskutierten Lektüre. Sie ist jetzt wieder in einem Nachdruck zugänglich, mit einem Vorwort von Gerd Albers (1993), das nach der Aktualität dieser Streitschrift fragt.

Many languages, particularly those which have achieved literary status, have been studied in great detail, and specialized descriptions of these are plentiful. What has not been so readily available, however, is a general survey covering a wide spectrum of the world's languages on a comparative basis. It is this kind of comparative cross-section of languages, ranging from the familiar and well-documented to the relatively obscure, that the Compendium of the World's Languages presents.

Since thattime, there have been two major theoretical developments that bear directly on the analysesoriginallydevelopedin the dissertation. These aretheinceptionof the 'Minimalist Program' of Chomsky (1992, 1993), and the recent 'Antisymmetry' proposals presented in Kayne (1993). Taken in conjunction with the many criticisms and suggestions ofreviewers, these proposals have prompted significant revisions ofthe earlier work:. Every chapter has been substantially revised, the introductory chapter has been replaced, and Chapters 2, 3 and 5 offer completely new analyses of the originalmaterial. The book comprises a set of theoretical studies of aspects of Modern Irish syntax. I have tried to present a coherent and consistent treatmentof the Irishfacts; abookin which the particularsofIrish syntax- which are in many cases quiteeccentric from an Englishperspective- are shown to inform more general theoreticalissues. I also hope to have offered to the non-Celticist a reasonably complete overview of the major syntactic structures ofIrish, with some indication and analysisofthe more importantdialectdifferences.

"An dem Tag, als die Zollbeamten mich hinten im Lastwagen fanden, war ich zwölf Jahre alt. Ich roch so schlecht wie Abdelmaliks Müllhäuschen. Obwohl Monsieur Ha sich alle Mühe gegeben hatte, den offiziellen Stempel auf dem Foto in meinem Pass wiederherzustellen, glaubten die Zollbeamten nicht, dass ich ein echter kleiner Franzose war. Ich hätte ihnen gerne alles erklärt, aber dafür war mein Französisch zu schlecht. Also zogen sie mich am Kragen meines Pullovers aus dem Lastwagen und nahmen mich mit. So endete meine Kindheit: plötzlich und unerwartet, an der Autobahn A4, als mir klar wurde, dass ich allein im Land der Menschenrechte würde zurechtkommen müssen." Die Geschichte des Jungen Koumaïl, der aus den Kriegswirren des Kaukasus bis nach Frankreich flieht und nie den Mut und den Glauben an das Glück verliert. Und ein Buch darüber, wie weit Träume tragen.
