Blut, Treibstoff, Lebensprinzip - in seinem furiosen Buch erzählt Bestsellerautor James Gleick, wie die Information zum Kernstück unserer heutigen Zivilisation wurde. Beginnend bei den Wörtern, den "sprechenden" Trommeln in Afrika, über das Morsealphabet und bis hin zur Internetrevolution beleuchtet er, wie die Übermittlung von Informationen die Gesellschaften prägten und veränderten. Gleick erläutert die Theorien, die sich mit dem Codieren und Decodieren, der Übermittlung von Inhalten und dem Verbreiten der Myriaden von Botschaften beschäftigen. Er stellt die bekannten und unbekannten Pioniere der Informationsgesellschaft vor: Claude Shannon, Norbert Wiener, Ada Byron, Alan Turing und andere. Er bietet dem Leser neue Einblicke in die Mechanismen des Informationsaustausches. So lernt dieser etwa die sich selbst replizierende Meme kennen, die "DNA" der Informationen. Sein Buch ermöglicht ein neues Verständnis von Musik, Quantenmechanik - und eine gänzlich neue Sicht auf die faszinierende Welt der Informationen.

Working across contemporary histories of film and screenwriting, and US screenwriting manuals from the 1910s and 1920s, this volume breaks new ground in thinking about the nature of scripting, and how screenwriting took shape as a particular kind of practice. It focuses on key topics such as the notion of the script as blueprint, the emergence of the screenplay and the politics of writing for the screen. Bringing an accessible academic approach to practitioner-oriented discussions of craft, the book provides a new perspective on debates to do with auteurism, funding processes, digital technology and the future of scripting. Focusing primarily on screenwriting in the US, this work builds on a wide range of writings by filmmakers and screenwriters and the work of different critics and theorists who have theorised the script, including Sergei Eisenstein, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Janet Staiger and Dudley Nichols.

The craft of craft, the art of craft - here in Canada we're just starting to really talk about these things. In March 1999, Jean Johnson, who runs Toronto's Craft Studio at Harbourfront Centre, organized a wildly successful symposium on the state of craft in Canada. Curators, writers, critics, academics and craftspeople spoke about all aspects of craft: history, practice, theory, criticism. Taken together, these papers create a clear picture of the vibrant crafts scene in Canada. The symposium was a groundbreaking event, a first in Canada, offering to the crafts community a new depth of consideration. The book, too, is a Canadian first, and it will allow a dialogue about the academic side of the craft movement to continue. Each of the book's three sections, History, Theory and Critical Writing, contains a keynote paper and essays by experts in each field, including Mark Kingwell writing 'On Style,' Blake Gopnik on 'Reviewing Craft Exhibitions for the Art Pages,' and Robin Metcalfe addressing 'Teacup Readings: Contextualizing Craft in the Art Gallery.'

The privileged link psychoanalysis has to spoken languages does not necessarily facilitate communication among analysts and psychotherapists of different mother tongues. The JEP European Journal of Psychoanalysis - which has been published since 1995 - seeks to overcome these linguistic barriers. It introduces the English reader to important European authors, as well as to authors of, for example, Latin American countries, whose paradigms are close to European "styles." Anyway the JEP European Journal of Psychoanalysis will publish not only translations, but also papers by English-speaking contributors whose works are close to European currents. The journal is not the official organ of any particular school. Material is chosen solely in terms of quality, originality and relevance to international debates in psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic fields. Similarly, significant, hard-to-pigeonhole authors and works falling outside any particular trend are also presented. The JEP European Journal of Psychoanalysis presents debates and trends within psychoanalysis and other related fields (including philosophical, anthropological, literary and historical contributions). Psychoanalysis has practical, ethical, and theoretical implications relevant not only to clinical practice, but also to politics and social policy, philosophy, cultural studies and the social sciences. This is why JEP has included papers by many authors who work (exclusively or also) in fields other than psychoanalysis, as well as authors mainly involved in clinical practice such as N. Braunstein, H. Bresheet, C. Castoriadis, V. Crapanzano, J. Cremerius, J. Derrida, F. Dolto, R. Girard, B. Grunberger, H. Kachele, O. Kernberg, B. Kilborne, J. Kristeva, P. Lacoue-Labarthe, J. Laplanche, S. Leclaire, J.-F. Lyotard, R. Major, I. Matte Blanco, J.-L. Nancy, D. Nobus, G. Obeyesekere, M. Perniola, P. Roazen, R. Rorty, E. Roudinesco, J. Searle, P. Valesio, F. Varela, G. Vattimo, J.-P. Vernant, Paul L. Wachtel, Y. H. Yerushalmi, S. i ek, etc. The journal provides an international forum for the exploration of the frontiers of psychoanalytic inquiry, giving voice to diverse perspectives, research, and clinical practice which link and transform the many partial understandings."

Malcolm Gladwell, Bestsellerautor und Star des amerikanischen Buchmarkts, hat die wahren Ursachen des Erfolgs untersucht und darüber ein lehrreiches, faszinierendes Buch geschrieben. Es steckt voller Geschichten und Beispiele, die zeigen, dass auch außergewöhnlicher Erfolg selten etwas mit individuellen Eigenschaften zu tun hat, sondern mit Gegebenheiten, die es dem einen leicht und dem anderen unmöglich machen, erfolgreich zu sein. Die Frage ist nicht, wie jemand ist, sondern woher er kommt: Welche Bedingungen haben diesen Menschen hervorgebracht? Auf seiner anregenden intellektuellen Erkundung der Welt der Überflieger erklärt Gladwell unter anderem das Geheimnis der Softwaremilliardäre, wie man ein herausragender Fußballer wird, warum Asiaten so gut in Mathe sind und was die Beatles zur größten Band aller Zeiten machte.

Am 5. August 1949 setzt ein Flugzeug über den rauhen Bergen von Montana 15 Fallschirmspringer des Forstdienstes ab. Ihre Aufgabe: die Bekämpfung eines zunächst ungefährlich eingestuften Waldbrandes in einer unwegsamen Schlucht. »Smokejumpers« waren die jungen Männer dieser Mannschaft, Feuerspringer, und die meisten von ihnen erstickten, verbrannten oder erlagen ihren schweren Brandwunden. Nur zwei entkamen dem Inferno und überlebten die Katastrophe. Mehr als ein Vierteljahrhundert später greift Norman Maclean die ungeschriebene Geschichte dieses Feuers auf und entdeckt darin alle Elemente einer klassischen Tragödie.
