Six esteemed authors each contribute a historical essay, focusing in turn on the history of electrophysiology, muscular and neuromuscular physiology, gastrointestinal hormones, perinatal physiology and visual research. Each of the six essays in this book is skilfully executed, idiosyncratic and a pleasure to read. They can be enjoyed in their own right, or as a rounded and informative collection on both the history of physiological practice and the scientists behind this movement's advance. The book will be of immense interest to physiologists, pharmacologists and historians of science, wishing to look back at the development of this fascinating discipline.

Tom Hodgkinson - Anleitung zum Müßiggang (German Edition)

Er weiß, wie sich die Bürotoilette umfunktionieren läßt, um einen kurzen Mittagsschlaf zu ermöglichen. Und er weiß, dass René Descartes sein "cogito ergo sum" nicht am Schreibtisch, sondern im Bett erdacht hat. Hodgkinson ist nämlich Chefredakteur der Zeitschrift The Idler und damit Experte für alles, was mit dem Schlaraffenleben zu tun hat. Anweisung zum Müßiggang ist gleichzeitig eine liebevoll recherchierte Kulturgeschichte und eine praktische Anleitung zum Müßiggang. Und natürlich ist ein Buch, das zur Faulheit aufruft, unweigerlich politisch: Eine Gesellschaftskritik, die, obgleich amüsant und ironisch überspitzt, durchaus ernstgenommen werden will. Hodgkinson tritt für mehr Produktivität durch entspanntere Arbeit ein und plädiert für einen gelassenen Umgang mit der Arbeitslosigkeit. Er hat ein Herz für Streiks, für Träumer, Absinth und Walter Benjamin. Von Konsumkapitalismus, Weckern und protestantischer Pflichtethik á la Thomas Edison hingegen hält er nichts. Hodgkinsons Buch ist eine Fundgrube für kuriose Zitate und Anekdoten aus der Geistesgeschichte. Er führt Lessing und Dr. Johnson ebenso ins Feld wie vergessene viktorianische Humoristen und obskure Punkmusiker, und das alles, ohne je die chronologische Struktur des Buchs aus den Augen zu verlieren. Die folgt nämlich den Stunden des Tages, die, eine jede für sich, besondere Herausforderungen an den Faulenzer stellen: Das morgendliche Aufstehen (oder Nicht-Aufstehen), die Frühstückspause, das lange Mittagessen, das Pfeiferauchen, das Trinken - sogar Mond und Sternen ist ein eigenes Kapitel gewidmet, bis dann im Morgengrauen der letzten Kapitel wieder die Vögel zwitschern.

But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One’s prison and has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean and increasingly seem too entrenched to be fought off. But his attempt to make a truce with the Seanchan is shadowed by treachery that may cost him everything. Whatever the price, though, he must have that truce. And he faces other dangers. There are those among the Forsaken who will go to any length to see him dead--and the Black Ajah is at his side....Unbeknownst to Rand, Perrin has made his own truce with the Seanchan. It is a deal made with the Dark One, in his eyes, but he will do whatever is needed to rescue his wife, Faile, and destroy the Shaido who captured her. Among the Shaido, Faile works to free herself while hiding a secret that might give her her freedom or cause her destruction. And at a town called Malden, the Two Rivers longbow will be matched against Shaido spears.Fleeing Ebou Dar through Seanchan-controlled Altara with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, Mat attempts to court the woman to whom he is half-married, knowing that she will complete that ceremony eventually. But Tuon coolly leads him on a merry chase as he learns that even a gift can have deep significance among the Seanchan Blood and what he thinks he knows of women is not enough to save him. For reasons of her own, which she will not reveal until a time of her choosing, she has pledged not to escape, but Mat still sweats whenever there are Seanchan soldiers near. Then he learns that Tuon herself is in deadly danger fr

I flexed my fingers and rubbed at my chaffed wrists but before I could utter a word, I was on my back, Omar pressing down on me. My eyes widened and a ribbon of fear curled itself around my heart, not because Omar was on top of me, but because I liked the feel of his body against mine. He smelled of something sharp, possibly citrus, and undeniably male, and the scent of my juices. It was a strange, heady mix that only served to intensify the longing deep inside me for something I couldn't define, wouldn't face.He stared into my eyes as if drinking in my soul. I couldn't look away. The beauty of those dark, fathomless eyes were mesmerizing until I felt the insistent nudge of his straining erection pressing against my pubic bone.
