Her growing closeness to a man twenty years younger than herself causes increasing tension among her family and friends.

English summary: This study uses the insights drawn from newly-discovered archival material from Moscow, Warsaw, Berlin, London and Washington D.C. to reconstruct the contemporary perceptions of West German Ostpolitik in Poland, the GDR, the Soviet Union, Great Britain and the USA. German text. German description: Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg, der Westverschiebung Polens und den Vertreibungen der Deutschen aus diesen Gebieten, schien das Verhaltnis zwischen Polen und Deutschland als bleibend feindselig definiert. Entsprechend schwierig gestalteten sich die Beziehungen zwischen der Bundesrepublik Deutschland und der Volksrepublik Polen. Erst mit Willy Brandts Neuer Ostpolitik seit 1969, die auf Aussohnung mit den Volkern Ostmitteleuropas abzielte, anderten sich die Verhaltnisse grundlegend. Etwas besser entwickelten sich zunachst die Beziehungen zwischen der DDR und Polen. Der Gorlitzer Vertrag von 1950, in dem sie dem Nachbarn die Unverletzlichkeit der Oder-Neisse-Grenze zusicherte, schuf eine stabile Basis fur annehmbare bilaterale Kontakte. Mit Hilfe neuer Archivfunde aus Moskau, Warschau, Berlin, London und Washington D.C. zeichnet Katarzyna Stokfosa ein neues Bild der deutschen Ostpolitik.

In the tradition of The Joy of Cooking and How to Cook Everything comes Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, an ambitious new approach to cooking by a major new culinary voice. Chef and writer Samin Nosrat has taught everyone from professional chefs to middle school kids to author Michael Pollan to cook using her revolutionary, yet simple, philosophy.

About a year ago I promised my friend Fischbein a preface to his book of which I knew the French manuscript. Now with the printer's proofs under my eyes I like the book even better than I did then, because of, and influenced by, new experiences in the meantime, and fresh thoughts that crossed my mind. Have I been influenced by what I remembered from the manuscript? If so, it must have happened unconsciously. But of course, what struck me in this work a year ago, struck a responsive chord in my own mind. In the past, mathematics teaching theory has strongly been influenced by a view on mathematics as a heap of concepts, and on learning mathematics as concepts attainment. Mathematics teaching practice has been jeopardised by this theoretical approach, which in its most dangerous form expresses itself as a radical atomism. To concepts attainment Fischbein opposes acquisition of intuitions. In my own publications I avoided the word "intuition" because of the variety of its meanings across languages. For some time I have used the term "constitution of mathematical objects", which I think means the same as Fischbein's "acquisition of intuitions" - indeed as I view it, constituting a mental object precedes its conceptualising, and under this viewpoint I tried to observe mathematical activities of young children.
