Film and the American Presidency

The contention of Film and the American Presidency is that over the twentieth century the cinema has been a silent partner in setting the parameters of what we might call the presidential imaginary. This volume surveys the partnership in its longevity, placing stress on especially iconic presidents such as Lincoln and FDR. The contributions to this collection probe the rich interactions between these high institutions of culture and politics—Hollywood and the presidency—and argue that not only did Hollywood acting become an idiom for presidential style, but that Hollywood early on understood its own identity through the presidency’s peculiar mix of national epic and unified protagonist. Additionally, they contend that studios often made their films to sway political outcomes; that the performance of presidential personae has been constrained by the kinds of bodies (for so long, white and male) that have occupied the office, such that presidential embodiment obscures the body politic; and that Hollywood and the presidency may finally be nothing more than two privileged figures of media-age power.

Once upon a time, Seth Alecto was an honest family man with a beautiful wife and son. That life ended in catastrophe when a drunk driver-the rich son of the new mayor-slammed into the family's car and ended the lives of Crystal, his wife, and Alex, his son. From that day forward, Seth's life has been one of turmoil. As his pain causes him to spiral downhill, he meets two women, one of whom seems to be an angel; when she touches him, it burns, and he flees. The next day, he finds his arms are covered in strange markings-and he soon learns he can see the sins of other people when he touches them. Seth has been inadvertently drawn into an underground war between heaven and hell. He has been made a hand of God, a warrior among God's heavenly forces-a title never yet held by a man. As he learns about his new role and skills, he finds himself fighting the demonic armies of hell. But Lucifer has a new plan, one in which Seth will play a vital part. Seth must fight evil, battle his past, and win the hearts and minds of God's angels-or die trying.

Titel in englischer Sprache Eine wichtige Neuerscheinung für alle, die mit Rückversicherungen zu tun haben. Vor allem Einsteiger finden hier übersichtlich und verständlich alle relevanten Informationen auf einen Blick! Das „ABC der Rückversicherung“ ist in zwei Teile untergliedert. Im ersten befassen sich die Autoren intensiv mit der traditionellen Rückversicherung. Dazu zählen Themen wie die Vertragsrückversicherung und die fakultative Rückversicherung - und zwar sowohl in der proportionalen als auch in der nichtproportionalen Form. Der erste Teil behandelt zusätzlich zentrale Methoden der Bepreisung und der Rechnungslegung von Rückversicherungsverträgen. Zahlreiche Illustrationen, Beispiele und Übungsaufgaben mit nachvollziehbaren Musterlösungen sorgen dafür für bestmögliche Verständlichkeit. Ganz bewusst verzichteten die Autoren darauf, mathematische Herleitungen zu erklären. Aus gutem Grund: Im Vordergrund steht klar und deutlich die schnelle Anwendbarkeit, daher werden konkret die Vor- und Nachteile der einzelnen Techniken und Konzepte herausgearbeitet. Der zweite Teil widmet sich dann den fortgeschrittenen Aspekten in der Rückversicherung. Dazu gehören Methoden des alternativen Risikotransfers, aber auch die verschiedenen Anwendungsgebiete der passiven Rückversicherung kommen nicht zu kurz. In erster Linie ist der zweite Teil dazu gedacht, einen kompakten Überblick über weitere Themengebiete zu geben, die rund um die traditionelle Rückversicherung flankierend auftauchen. Bereits Anfänger, die mit dem Thema noch nicht sehr vertraut sind, können so die wichtigsten Konzepte der Rückversicherung und die in der Praxis verwandten Fachtermini einsortieren und grob bewerten! Zahlreiche Referenzen geben dabei nicht nur Sicherheit, sie dienen auch einem vertieften Einstieg. Im Einzelnen werden hier die folgenden Themengebiete angesprochen: Fronting und Captives zur Steuerung des Selbstbehaltes der zedierenden Gesellschaft Run-Off-Management zur Abwicklung von Versicherungsbeständen Regulatorische Themen wie die Äquivalenz von einzelnen Aufsichtsregimen und die Erfassung von global systemrelevanten Versicherern sowie Skizzierung von Methoden zur Optimierung von Rückversicherungsstrukturen und Selbstbehalten Ein Glossar, der die im Buch gebrauchten Fachtermini kurz erläutert, rundet das für die Branche wichtige Buch ab. Ideal für Anfänger bei Versicherungsunternehmen, die sich mit der aktiven oder passiven Rückversicherung beschäftigen, und die sich einen kompakten, schnellen und anwendungsorientierten Überblick verschaffen wollen! Those who are dealing with assumed or ceded reinsurance can find here all information at a glance. In the first part the authors deal with traditional assumed reinsurance, i.e., treaty and facultative reinsurance, both proportional and non-proportional in nature. Illustrations, practical examples and exercises enhance the reader’s experience. The second part is dedicated to advanced reinsurance, e.g., to methods of alternative risk transfer and work fields in ceded reinsurance. Ideal for the beginner to obtain an application-oriented overview of the relevant concepts and techniques in reinsurance!
