Welcome to Mahalia's Sweet Tea--the finest soul food restaurant in Prince George's County, Maryland.

In recent years Germanists have paid more and more attention to exile literature. Erich Fried: A Writer Without a Country examines the life and work of the Austrian-born writer Erich Fried (1921-1988). It is concerned principally, although not exclusively, with the earlier period in the writer's career, which has hitherto received less attention from critics and scholars. This work provides a critical literary and biographical assessment of Fried's existence in exile in Great Britain and adds to the growing scholarly examination of German exile literature.

Der Gegenentwurf zum unproduktiven Unternehmensalltag Wenn ein Unternehmen erfolgreich sein will, benötigt es angeblich hoch bezahlte Direktoren, lange Meetings, ein großes Werbebudget, Fünfjahrespläne und vor allem ständiges Wachstum. So weit die Theorie. In der Praxis kommen die Software-Unternehmer Jason Fried und David Heinemeier Hansson schon seit 10 Jahren ohne all das aus – und haben Erfolg. Die Autoren repräsentieren eine zukunftsweisende Geschäftskultur, die dabei ist, die alten Konzern-Dinosaurier das Fürchten zu lehren. Smart sind die neuen Unternehmer, beweglich, unprätentiös und technisch auf der Höhe. Arbeit ist für sie kein Selbstzweck, und Lebensqualität gehört ebenso zum Business wie die unvermeidliche menschliche Unzulänglichkeit. Nüchtern und wirksam setzt sich „Rework“ von hochtrabenden Begriffen wie „Reform“ oder „Revolution“ ab. Entstanden ist eine ketzerische „Business-Bibel“, die keine Management-Phrasen herbetet, sondern Mut macht zu echter Eigenständigkeit. Zu Recht schrieb ein Rezensent: „Sie können dieses Buch ignorieren, aber auf eigene Gefahr“.
