Bijna alle Wrekers zijn dood of bezweken voor het duister. Kaalslag maakt hele steden met de grond gelijk en het ziet ernaar uit dat Regalia’s snode plannen alsnog zullen worden uitgevoerd. David is ervan overtuigd dat de oplossing van het problem ligt bij Calamity, de bloedrode ster aan de hemel die de veroorzaker lijkt van alle ellende. Eerst trekt David nog met een paar getrouwen naar Ildithia, de uit zoutkristallen opgebouwde stad die zich langzaam verplaatst door van achteren af te brokkelen en van voren weer aan te groeien. Daar wacht een reeks grimmige confrontaties, niet alleen met een oude medestander maar ook met hun eigen diepste angsten.

Title : Poitiers 1356
Author : David Nicolle
Publisher: Osprey Publishing
Total pages: 96 pages
Opsrey's examination of the Battle of Poitiers, which was fought between France and England in 1356. When Edward the Black Prince marched out of Gascony in August 1356, his plan was to carry out a large-scale destructive raid into the territory of the French King, John II. On 18 September, however, he was cornered south of Poitiers by a larger French army, and was left with little option but to fight. The ensuing battle proved an unmitigated disaster for the French. Their army was butchered and the King himself captured. In this volume, Dr David Nicolle details a campaign that enhanced the reputation of the Black Prince and led King John to catastrophe.

Author : Neil Murphy
Total pages: 126 pages
This book provides a systematic analysis of the innovations that occurred in the display of royal power during John II’s four years in English captivity. Neil Murphy shows how the French king’s competition with Edward III led to a revolution in the presentation of the royal image, manifesting through developments to the sacral character of the French monarchy, lavish displays of gift giving, and the use of courtly display. Showing that the Hundred Years War was not just fought on the battlefields of France, this book unravels how the war played out daily in the competition for status between Edward III and John II.
Title : Creativity, inc.
Author : Ed Catmull
Total pages: N.A pages
Creativity, Inc. is een boek voor managers die hun werknemers willen leiden naar excellentie, een handleiding voor iedereen die streeft naar originaliteit, en de allereerste, all-access reis naar het hart van Pixar Animation Studios. Het neemt je mee naar de story meetings, de postmortems en de Braintrust-sessies en laat zien hoe je een cultuur bouwt waar creativiteit ontstaat en floreert. Pixar domineert al bijna 20 jaar de animatiewereld. Films als de Toy Story-trilogie, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Up en WALL-E hebben box-office records gevestigd en wonnen samen 27 Academy Awards. Het plezier in het vertellen van verhalen, de inventieve plots en de emotionele authenticiteit laten zien wat creativiteit werkelijk is. In dit boek onthult Catmull de ideeën en technieken achter het succes en de winstgevendheid. Bij Pixar is een unieke omgeving gecreëerd met processen die creativiteit beschermen en die ingaan tegen conventies: - Geef een goed idee aan een middelmatig team en ze verkloten het. Geef een middelmatig idee aan een fantastisch team en ze repareren het of verzinnen iets beters. - Als je er niet naar streeft om het onzichtbare zichtbaar te maken en het te begrijpen, dan ben je slecht voorbereid om leiding te geven. - Managers zijn er niet om risico’s te vermijden. Ze moeten een omgeving creëren waar het veilig is voor anderen om risico’s te nemen. - De kosten om fouten te voorkomen zijn vaak hoger dan de kosten om fouten te herstellen. - De communicatiestructuur van het bedrijf is niet gelijk aan de organisatiestructuur. Iedereen moet elkaar kunnen praten. - Ga er niet vanuit dat algemene overeenstemming leidt tot verandering – zelfs als iedereen aan boord is, kost het veel energie om een groep in beweging te krijgen.

Title : Understanding and Managing Urban Water in Transition
Author : Quentin Grafton,Katherine A. Daniell,Céline Nauges,Jean-Daniel Rinaudo,Noel Wai Wah Chan
Total pages: 641 pages
This book examines changes and transitions in the way water is managed in urban environments. This book originated from a joint French-Australian initiative on water and land management held in Montpellier, France. The book delivers practical insights into urban water management. It links scientific insights of researchers with the practical experiences of urban water practitioners to understand and respond to key trends in how urban water is supplied, treated and consumed. The 51 contributors to the volume provide a range of insights, case studies, summaries and analyses of urban water and from a global perspective. The first section on water supply and sanitation includes case studies from Zimbabwe, France and South Africa, among others. Water demand and water economics are addressed in the second section of the book, with chapters on long-term water demand forecasting, the social determinants of water consumption in Australian cities, a study of water quality and consumption in France, governance and regulation of the urban water sector and more. The third section explores water governance and integrated management, with chapters on water management in Quebec, in the Rotterdam-Rijnmond urban area, in Singapore and in Australia. The final section offers perspectives on challenges and future uncertainties for urban water systems in transition. Collectively, the diverse insights provide an important step forward in response to the challenges of sustainably delivering water safely, efficiently and equitably.
Title : Men and the War on Obesity
Author : Lee F. Monaghan
Total pages: 232 pages
Is obesity really a public health problem and what does the construction of obesity as a health problem mean for men? According to official statistics, the majority of men in nations such as England and the USA are overweight or obese. Public health officials, researchers, governments and various agencies are alarmed and have issued dire warnings about a global ‘obesity epidemic’. This perceived threat to public health seemingly legitimates declarations of war against what one US Surgeon General called ‘the terror within’. Yet, little is known about weight-related issues among everyday men in this context of symbolic or communicated violence. Men and the War on Obesity is an original, timely and controversial study. Using observations from a mixed-sex slimming club, interviews with men whom medicine might label overweight or obese and other sources, this study urges a rethink of weight or fat as a public health issue and sometimes private trouble. Recognizing the sociological wisdom that things are not as they seem, it challenges obesity warmongering and the many battles it mandates or incites. This important book could therefore help to change current thinking and practices not only in relation to men but also women and children who are defined as overweight, obese or too fat. It will be of interest to students and researchers of gender and the body within sociology, gender studies and cultural studies as well as public health researchers, policymakers and practitioners.
