Allen voran ihr Zukünftiger ist wenig begeistert von den Wahrheiten, die plötzlich aus Natalie heraussprudeln. Sie muss den Hypnotiseur finden, bevor die Hochzeit noch ins Wasser fällt. Doch als die Suche sie in einen bezaubernden Dorfpub und zu seinem unwiderstehlichen Besitzer in Yorkshire führt, weiß sie bald selbst nicht mehr, was richtig und was falsch ist ...

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - and. Länder - Neuzeit, Absolutismus, Industrialisierung, Note: 2,0, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Morde Jack the Rippers, die im ausgehenden 19. Jahrhundert im Londoner Armenviertel Whitechapel stattfanden, gelten bis heute auf der ganzen Welt als ein Mysterium. Die Theorien die im Laufe der Jahre um die niemals aufgeklärten Morde entstanden sind füllen heute ganze Bücherregale. Selbst in Film und Fernsehen greift man gerne auf die Geschichte des Rippers zurück. Die meisten Arbeiten beschäftigen sich mit der Frage wer dieser Mensch war, der fünf Frauen auf so grausame Weise umbrachte. In dieser Arbeit soll es jedoch nicht darum gehen, sich an etwaigen Täterdiskussionen zu beteiligen. Vielmehr soll die Einordnung Jack the Rippers in die viktorianische Sichtweise gegenüber der Kriminalität im Fokus stehen. Die Frage wird sein, inwieweit Jack the Ripper dem Bild der Londoner criminal class entspricht. Die Arbeit ist zu diesem Zweck in zwei Teile aufgeteilt. Im ersten Teil werden sowohl die Londoner Unterschicht als auch die gesellschaftliche Sicht auf Kriminalität thematisiert, um eine Grundlage zu schaffen. Dabei wird darüber hinaus das Konzept der criminal class angesprochen. Im zweiten Teil der Arbeit werden zunächst die Whitechapel Morde behandelt, um anschließend verschiedene Theorien näher zu betrachten. Mit letzteren wurde der Versuch unternommen, Jack the Ripper gesellschaftlich näher zu bestimmen. Ausgehend davon wird in einem Fazit versucht, eine Einschätzung zu seiner Zugehörigkeit zur criminal class vorzunehmen. Gelöst von den beiden beschriebenen Hauptteilen wird sich die Arbeit der Frage widmen, inwieweit es sich für einen Historiker lohnt sich mit Kriminalitätsgeschichte zu beschäftigen.

At the heart of contemporary corporate leadership lies a crisis of confidence. Since the financial crash of 2008, distrust of employers among the workforce has dramatically increased due to a lack of authentic leadership. But how can leaders become and remain authentic? Yours Truly draws on a host of inspirational examples from executives of multinational corporations to political leaders and sports leaders, as well as more than two decades of research, in order to examine and explain the missing link in research into authentic leadership: how leaders strive for success, excellence and constant renewal, whilst remaining true to themselves. Margarita Mayo introduces the three characteristics – Heart, Habits and Harmony – that differentiate authentic from non-authentic leaders. Presented within a practical framework, the book provides a measurable guide to developing your own authentic power: · Contagious passion that wins the hearts of others · Setting new habits of learning to empower others · Enhancing harmony by building authentic contexts. Ideal for managers, senior executives and aspiring leaders, Yours Truly captures the value of authentic leadership in transforming organizations. The book strips away the seemingly magical, innate charismatic qualities of leaders in order to showcase a less mysterious and more practical process that can be followed by anyone.

We can all recall times growing up when we had the urge to play hooky from school. Those days when we faked a cold or flu in an attempt to avoid an upcoming grammar test or the consequences for incomplete homework. We would cough and sputter and shiver in pleading our case but most often be ushered out the door by a seemingly uncaring mother. In Yours Truly, we are introduced to Alvin, a master of playing hooky, a ten year old boy who routinely faked illness and injury to skip school and whose efforts were substantiated in, although sympathetic, most often ridiculous notes from his seemingly caring mother. A collection of the original handwritten notes, preserved as the author’s memoirs, Yours Truly follows the exploits of little Alvin as he tiptoes around the school’s attendance officer throughout his grade five school year.
