Crossroads. Eigentlich denkt David, er sei glücklich: Er hat einen gut bezahlten Job, eine hübsche, liebevolle Freundin, eine Wohnung in L.A. und einen Hund. - Was sollte er mehr wollen? Als er Dank eines ursprünglich harmlosen Experiments herausfindet, dass es verschiedene mögliche Zeitlinien für sein Leben gibt und er in der Lage ist, kurzzeitig in andere Dimensionen zu springen, um zu sehen, wie sein Leben dort aussehen würde, gerät eben jenes nach und nach aus den Fugen. Die Ereignisse fangen an, sich zu überschlagen, als eine strikte Trennung der verschiedenen Leben und Dimensionen nicht mehr möglich zu sein scheint ...

Climate Governance At The Crossroads. The global response to climate change has reached a critical juncture. Since the 1992 signing of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the nations of the world have attempted to address climate change through large-scale multilateral treaty-making. These efforts have been heroic, but disappointing. As evidence for the quickening pace of climate change mounts, the treaty-making process has sputtered, and many are now skeptical about the prospect of an effective global response. Yet global treaty-making is not the only way that climate change can be addressed or, indeed, is being addressed. In the last decade myriad initiatives have emerged across the globe independently from, or only loosely connected to, the "official" UN-sponsored negotiations and treaties. In the face of stalemate in the formal negotiations, the world is experimenting with alternate means of responding to climate change. Climate Governance at the Crossroads chronicles these innovations--how cities, provinces and states, citizen groups, and corporations around the globe are addressing the causes and symptoms of global warming. The center of gravity in the global response to climate change is shifting from the multilateral treaty-making process to the diverse activities found beyond the negotiating halls. These innovations are pushing the envelope of climate action and demonstrating what is possible, and they provide hope that the world will respond effectively to the climate crisis. In introducing climate governance "experiments" and examining the development and functioning of this new world of climate policy-making, this book provides an exciting new perspective on the politics of climate change and the means to understand and influence how the global response to climate change will unfold in the coming years.

This diligent study of Johnson’s life debunks these myths, while emphasizing the effect that Johnson, said to be the greatest blues musician who ever lived, has had on modern musicians and fans of the blues.

At The Crossroads. While the background and context of the book is the current crisis in the American automobile industry, the focus is on Kokomo, home to three generations of autoworkers. This is the story of the union leaders, the salaried plant managers, the elected local officials as well as ordinary citizens of the town. In telling their story, the authors succinctly explain how the Detroit autombobile industry stumbled and how this affected millions of people in the US, Canada and Mexico. The populist narrative is ultimately an exhortation to save the stumbling industry.
