The death of the book has been duly announced, and with it the end of brick-and-mortar libraries, traditional publishers, linear narrative, authorship, and disciplinarity, along with the emergence of a more equitable discursive order. These essays suggest that it won't be that simple. While the contributors to this volume are enthusiastic about the possibilities created by digital technologies, they also see the new meida raising serious critical issues that force us to reexamine basic notions about rhetoric, reading, and the nature of discourse itself.

With contributions from some of the world's leading authorities, this publication considers the future of the book in the digital age. As more books are published than ever before, this timely publication addresses a range of critically important themes relating to the book - including the present and future for publishing, libraries, literacy and learning in the information society. In the early 1990s the printed word appeared to be facing a terminal crisis, threatened from all sides by new media and other forms of entertainment. Subsequently the book has proved to be resilient in the face of these challenges, confounding the predictions of those who saw its replacement, whilst digital technology is providing mechanisms that enhance our ability to produce and distribute printed books. New developments, such as the growth of self-publishing and print on demand, and initiatives from major players such as Amazon and Google, mean that the printed book is in the middle of great changes. Chapters by leading experts in the field of publishing studies and information science A broad range of perspectives on key issues such as print on demand and digital publishing Contributions from around the world

Die eine hat Follower, die andere Erfahrung. Was zählt mehr beim Zickenkrieg in der Redaktion? Ein stylisher, herrlich böser Roman aus der Welt der Mode und der Medien. Imogen Tate kehrt nach längerer Abwesenheit zurück an den Schreibtisch der Chefredakteurin des Magazins ›Glossy‹, nur um auf ihrem Stuhl ihre frühere Assistentin Eve vorzufinden. Eve plant einen komplett digitalen Relaunch des Magazins als App, keine dicke 400-Seiten-September-Ausgabe. Imogen kennt zwar alle wichtigen Designer und Supermodels persönlich, hat aber keinen Schimmer von Dingen wie Community Management in den sozialen Netzwerken oder dem verkaufsfördernden Einsatz von Instagram und Snapchat. Und sie ruft tatsächlich noch Menschen an, statt einfach eine E-Mail zu schreiben oder eine WhatsApp-Nachricht zu schicken. Um ihren Job zu behalten, muss sie den Kampf gegen die TechBitch aufnehmen.

Träume, die auf Video aufgenommen werden, Schreiben per Gedankensteuerung, Querschnittgelähmte, die Gliedmaßen wieder bewegen können - das alles gibt es schon. In den vergangenen 15 Jahren ist durch die Erfindung der Kernspintomografie eine Verbindung von Physik, Technik und Hirnforschung entstanden, die unser Wissen über Gehirn und Bewußtsein im Eiltempo gesteigert hat. Mithilfe komplexer Rechner und Maschinen werden wir in fernerer Zukunft Gedanken direkt aufzeichnen können, Musikstücke komponieren zum Beispiel oder Bücher verfassen. Via Internet könnten wir von Bewußtsein zu Bewußtsein kommunizieren. Es wird möglich sein, fremde Erinnerungen auf unser Hirn spielen und gute oder schlechte Gefühle. Unser Begriff von Bewußtsein und Intelligenz selbst und wird sich verändern. Wir stehen am Anfang einer wissenschaftlich-technischen Revolution, wohin wird sie uns führen? Michio Kaku entfaltet in diesem Buch ein grandioses Panorama des Wissens und der wissenschaftlichen Voraussage. Er hat sorgfältig recherchiert und dazu rund 300 Experten befragt. Manche denken weit voraus: Nicht auszuschließen, dass sich dereinst das Bewusstsein ganz vom Körper lösen lässt, um vielleicht auf fremden Planeten spazieren zu gehen. So faszinierend solche Entwicklungen sind, es wird schon jetzt Zeit, sie ethisch und politisch zu ordnen, erklärt der weltbekannte Physiker.

The Future of the Euro

In The Future of the Euro, a group of the world's top political economists analyze the fundamental causes of the euro crisis, determine how it can be fixed, and consider what likely futures lie ahead for the currency. The book makes three interrelated arguments emphasizing the primacy of political over economic factors. First, the original plan for the euro focused on monetary union, but omitted a financial and banking union, mutually supporting institutions of fiscal union and economic government, and a legitimate political union. Second, the euro's unfinished design led to economic divergence-quietly altering the existing distribution of economic and political power within Europe prior to the crisis-which in turn determined the EU's crisis response. The book highlights how the euro's four most important member states-Germany, France, Italy and Spain-each changed once they adopted the euro, why the crisis affected them so differently, and how each has since struggled to live with the commitments the euro necessitates. Third, the book examines three possible "euro futures" through the lens of the politics of its reluctant leader Germany; through the lens of the EU's capacity to move forward through crises; and through the geopolitical lens of the international monetary system. Any successful long-term solution to the euro's predicament will need to start with the political foundations of markets.

Was wäre wenn ..., ich dich heute küsse? Im Mai 1996 bekommt die 16-jährige Emma ihren ersten Computer geschenkt. Mithilfe ihres besten Freunds Josh loggt sie sich ein und gelangt zufällig auf ihre eigene Facebook-Seite – 15 Jahre später. Geschockt stellt sie fest, dass sie mit 31 Jahren arbeitslos und unglücklich verheiratet sein wird.

Doch der Versuch, in ihr Schicksal einzugreifen und dadurch ihr künftiges Facebook-Profil zu verändern, setzt eine fatale Kettenreaktion in Gang ...

Based on new data and new analytical frameworks, this book assesses the forces of change at play in the development of American universities and their prospects for the future. The book begins with a lengthy introduction by Clark Kerr that not only provides an overview of change since the time he coined the phrase “the city of intellect” but also discusses the major changes that will affect American universities over the next thirty years. Part One examines demographic and economic changes, such as the rise of nearly universal higher education, private gift and corporate sponsorship of research, new labor market opportunities, and increasing inequality among institutions and disciplines. Part Two assesses the profound influence of the Internet and other technologies on teaching and learning. Part Three describes how the various forces of change affect the nature of academic research and the organization of disciplines and the curriculum. Part Four analyzes the consequences of change for university governance and the means by which universities in the future can maintain high levels of achievement while maintaining high levels of autonomy. The contributors include many of today’s leading scholars of higher education. They are Andrew Abbott, Steven Brint, Richard Chait, Burton R. Clark, Randall Collins, David J. Collis, Roger L. Geiger, Patricia J. Gumport, Clark Kerr, Richard A. Lanham, Jason Owen-Smith, Walter W. Powell, Sheila Slaughter, and Carol Tomlinson-Keasey.

The 50th anniversary edition of the book that changed English Politics. With an Introduction by Gordon Brown. It is impossible to think of the intellectual landscape of Britain today without recognising the power of Crosland's The Future of Socialism in all aspects of the political debate. Still relevant 50 years after it was first published, Crosland's masterwork was a radical reworking of the role of the post-war Labour Party. This book sets out the philosophy for the New Labour project and also contains the key for reviving the fortunes of the Party of the future. Also included is a piece by Dick Leonard, Crosland's Personal Private Secretary and who knew the radical philosopher well, and an afterword from Susan Crosland.
