In vielen westlichen Ländern sind rechte, nationalistische Bewegungen auf dem Vormarsch. Wie ist es dazu gekommen? Arlie Russell Hochschild reiste ins Herz der amerikanischen Rechten, nach Louisiana, und suchte fünf Jahre lang das Gespräch mit ihren Landsleuten. Sie traf auf frustrierte Menschen, deren "Amerikanischer Traum" geplatzt ist; Menschen, die sich abgehängt fühlen, den Staat hassen und sich der rechtspopulistischen Tea-Party-Bewegung angeschlossen haben. Hochschild zeigt eine beunruhigende Entwicklung auf, die auch in Europa längst begonnen hat. Hochschilds Reportage ist nicht nur eine erhellende Deutung einer gespaltenen Gesellschaft, sondern auch ein bewegendes Stück Literatur. "Jeder, der das moderne Amerika verstehen möchte, sollte dieses faszinierende Buch lesen." Robert Reich "Ein kluges, respektvolles und fesselndes Buch." New York Times Book Review "Eine anrührende, warmherzige und souverän geschriebene, ungemein gut lesbare teilnehmende Beobachtung. ... Wer ihr Buch liest, versteht die Wähler Trumps, weil sie auf Augenhöhe mit ihnen und nicht über sie spricht." FAZ

Aus dem Samen, den Merlin einst in die Erde des untergehenden Fincayras setzte, wuchs ein mächtiger Baum und mit ihm eine neue Welt: das magische Avalon. In seinen sieben ausgedehnten Wurzelreichen leben die verschiedensten Geschöpfe in Frieden und Harmonie. Gäbe es da nicht die düstere Prophezeiung der Herrin vom See, nach der in einem sternenlosen Jahr ein Kind geboren werde, von dem 17 Jahre später große Gefahr für das ganze Reich ausgehe. Als sich die Anzeichen mehren, dass sich die Vorhersage erfüllen wird, machen sich drei ungewöhnliche Jugendliche auf die Suche nach dem Ursprung des Unglücks: die freiheitsliebende Elli, eine ehemalige Sklavin und nun angehende Priesterin, Tamwyn, ein heimatloser Waldläufer und Sohn eines Feuerwesens, sowie sein Ziehbruder Scree, der ein sonderbares Geheimnis mit sich zu tragen scheint. Avalons Zukunft liegt in ihren Händen – denn sie ahnen, dass einer von ihnen »das Kind der dunklen Prophezeiung« ist, ein anderer »der wahre Erbe Merlins« und damit Avalons einziger Hoffnungsträger ...

"Europarechtliche Bezüge des Privatrechts sind zu einem festen Bestandteil der juristischen Ausbildung und Praxis geworden: Immer häufiger werden europarechtliche Fragestellungen wie die richtlinienkonforme Auslegung nationalen Rechts, eine unmittelbare Anwendbarkeit des Gemeinschaftsrechts oder Staatshaftungsansprüche aufgrund einer unzureichenden Umsetzung des Europarechts auch in zivilrechtliche Klausuren integriert. Das Lehrbuch bietet eine kompakte Darstellung der Einwirkungen des Europarechts auf das nationale Privatrecht. Es vermittelt dem Examenskandidaten das hierfür erforderliche Wissen, insbesondere: Klausurrelevante Schnittstellen zwischen Europarecht und nationalem Recht, Grundbegriffe der europäischen Methodik, europarechtliche Vorgaben für das nationale Recht. Eine Vielzahl an Fallbeispielen mit Lösungen unterstützt die Umsetzung des Erlernten im Examen. Neben dem Vertragsrecht, Deliktsrecht und Handelsrecht findet das Gesellschaftsrecht, Arbeitsrecht, Kapitalmarktrecht, Zivilprozessrecht und Wettbewerbsrecht besondere Berücksichtigung."--Verl.
