    This is a dramatic and little-known story of the First World War, when the actions of a few men shaped the fate of nations. By 1914, Germany had ships and sailors scattered across the globe, protecting its overseas colonies and “showing the flag” of its new Imperial Navy. After war broke out on August 4 there was no hope that they could reach home. Instead, they were ordered to attack Britain’s vital trade routes for as long as possible.

    Er wird einmal über halb Europa herrschen - doch als Maximilian I. von Habsburg seiner Lebensliebe Rosina von Kraig begegnet, ist er noch ein "Bettelprinz", der sich am verarmten Wiener Kaiserhof nach Ruhm und Ehre sehnt. Angetrieben von seiner Idee, das alte römisch-deutsche Kaiserreich wiederaufzurichten, wirbt er um Marie, die Erbin von Burgund. Fortan wird er ein Zerrissener sein: in der Liebe zu zwei ganz unterschiedlichen Frauen und im Zwiespalt zwischen Kalkül und Gefühl.

    Mousy little Heidi is a wanna-be designer who works as nothing more than a glorified go-fer for one of the largest and most well-known companies in the world of fashion. When she accidentally stains CEO Mr. Kaiser's pants, she gets two things she didn't expect - a spanking and a job. Kaiser hires her as his assistant, and her "training" proves to be quite a test of surrender.

    Warning: This title contains erotic situations, graphic language, spanking, domination, submission, and an office romance hot enough to leave handprints!

    If you've ever been curious about where the term "masochism" comes from, you will find it laden in the pages of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's masterpiece, Venus in Furs, for whom the term was named. Drawn in part from his own life experiences, Sacher-Masoch's novel develops an eroticism unlike any other. The book's protagonist, Severin, is so infatuated and obsessed with the object of his desire, Wanda, that he asks to be her slave. Although hesitant at first, Wanda's treatment of Severin becomes more and more depraved, fueling Severin's own desires for cruelty.

    Here's a biographical profile of Henry J. Kaiser, a great industrialist and philanthropist who had a profound impact on America's ability to prevail in World War II. People tend to regard the great American titans of the past as robber barons, men who made their fortunes off the backs of the oppressed, flaunting laws and living like nabobs while others had to scratch for a living.

    In the 1970s, amid severe cutbacks in physics funding, a small group of underemployed physicists in Berkeley decided to throw off the constraints of academia and explore the wilder side of science. Dubbing themselves the “Fundamental Fysiks Group,” they pursued a freewheeling, speculative approach to physics. Some dabbled with LSD while conducting experiments. They studied quantum theory alongside Eastern mysticism and psychic mind reading, discussing the latest developments while lounging in hot tubs.

    Die Geschichte des jungen Mannes, der sich vom arbeitslosen, reichsfremden Bettler zum Enkel des im Exil lebenden deutschen Kaisers emporarbeitet, hat Thomas Mann zu seinem Roman "Felix Krull" inspiriert. Man kann nur staunen, wie gekonnt und geschickt Harry Domela die feine Gesellschaft jener Tage in eine Blamage reitet, die ihresgleichen sucht - und über die man noch heute schallend lachen muss.

    Was macht der Detektiv ohne Fall? Er lauert im Büro und beschäftigt sich mit Nebenbeschäftigungen. Meine heißen: Lektüre und Radio. Das derzeitige Lied aus dem geleasten japanischen Supersound wird von einem hungrigen Austropop-Wolf geheult: Ich bin einsam ohne dich. Ich nicht, erkläre ich mir gelassen. Ich kenne dich noch gar nicht. Die Taschenbuch-Lektüre ist auch nicht viel wert.

    Vor vielen Jahren lebte ein Kaiser, der so ungeheuer viel auf neue Kleider hielt, dass er all sein Geld dafür ausgab, um recht geputzt zu sein. Er kümmerte sich nicht um seine Soldaten, kümmerte sich nicht um Theater und liebte es nicht, in den Wald zu fahren, außer um seine neuen Kleider zu zeigen. Er hatte einen Rock für jede Stunde des Tages. Und ebenso wie man von einem König sagte, er ist im Rat, so sagte man hier immer: "Der Kaiser ist in der Garderobe!"

    Could it be that for the first time in history, the United States needs Latin America more than the other way round? Since the early 1800s, the United States regarded the region as its backyard, but in the past decade South Americas leaders have increasingly snubbed US efforts to persuade them to adopt free-market economics and sign trade agreements. While Washington has been distracted by military campaigns elsewhere, rivals such as China, Russia, and Iran have expanded their clout in Latin America.

    An eye-opening account of how Congress today really works - and doesn’t - that follows the dramatic journey of the sweeping financial reform bill enacted in response to the Great Crash of 2008. The founding fathers expected Congress to be the most important branch of government and gave it the most power. When Congress is broken - as its justifiably dismal approval ratings suggest - so is our democracy.
