    Understanding wealth in the United States - who has it, how they acquired it, and how they preserve it - is crucial to addressing the economic and political challenges facing the nation. But until now we have had little reliable information. Edward Wolff, one of the world's great experts on the economics of wealth, offers an authoritative account of patterns in the accumulation and distribution of wealth since 1900. A Century of Wealth in America demonstrates that the most remarkable change has been the growth of per capita household wealth.

    This book essentially launched the memoir craze that has been going strong ever since. The story is pretty grim: teen-aged Wolff moves with his divorced mother from Florida to Utah to Washington State to escape her violent boyfriend. When she remarries, Wolff finds himself in a bitter battle of wills with his abusive stepfather, a contest in which the two prove to be more evenly matched than might have been supposed.

    Wolff here returns with fresh revelations - about biding one's time, or experiencing first love, or burying one's mother - that come to a variety of characters in circumstances at once everyday and extraordinary. A retired Marine enrolls in college while her son trains for Iraq. A lawyer takes a difficult deposition. An American in Rome indulges the Gypsy who's picked his pocket.

    Ethan Frost is everything a woman could want in a man. He's rich, gorgeous, powerful, and one of the most eligible bachelors in the world. But that's not why I'm with him. I love Ethan for all the things no one else gets to see: his innate kindness, his reckless spontaneity, his unwavering determination to use his brilliance for good. I love the way he looks at me, the way he touches me, the way he makes me forget the wreckage of my past and the twisted fear that still lives inside me.

    A History of the Middle Ages is the amazing story of European man in transition. It is a dramatic chronicle of 1,000 years of political, social, and economic transformation beginning with the dissolution of the classical Mediterranean civilization and ending with the first flowering of the Renaissance. It is also the story of two new religions, Christianity and Islam, both of which were destined to dominate the mind of every person in those new civilizations arising in their wake.

    Friedrich Schillers "Die Räuber" - REMIXED. More Drama, Baby! Schillers "Die Räuber" in völlig neuem Gewand - eingesprochen von Bandmitgliedern von Jupiter Jones, Knorkator, Ohrbooten, Der Fall Böse, Beatsteaks, Gleis 8 sowie Celina Bostic und Friedrich Liechtenstein. Als Schillers "Die Räuber" 1782 uraufgeführt wurde, verursachte es tumultartige Zustände im Theater. Das revolutionäre Drama bewirkte einen handfesten Skandal. Seitdem ist tonnenweise Kunstblut auf deutschen Bühnen geflossen und hunderte Bühnentode wurden gestorben. Bis heute ist Schillers Stück dank seines zeitlosen Kerns ein Klassiker.

    Here is a tapestry of stories about the complex and unique relationship that exists between brothers. In this book, some of our finest authors take an unvarnished look at how brothers admire and admonish, revere and revile, connect and compete, love and war with each other. With hearts and minds wide open, and in some cases, with laugh-out-loud humor, the writers tackle a topic that is as old as the Bible and yet has been, heretofore, overlooked. Contributors range in age from 24 to 84, and their stories from comic to tragic.

    I told myself I'd never trust Miles Girard, no matter how brilliant or sexy he may be. His sister, Chloe - Ethan Frost's wife - is my best friend, but I know just how low Miles will stoop to get what he wants. Now he's the last thing I want: my boss. Growing up, I had it all - except for the sense that I belonged. And when a mistake from my past surfaces in the press, my parents don't hesitate to cut me off. But surprisingly, Miles offers me a helping hand. Before I know it, our relationship turns unprofessional in the hottest ways.

    Every day brings new headlines about the decline of traditional media powerhouses like Time Inc. and the triumph of digital native media like Buzzfeed and Politico. Old media giants like the New York Times are betting everything on their digital offerings to replace the shrinking revenue from traditional advertising. But the ugly truth, argues Michael Wolff, is that digital media isn't working for any content creator, old or new.

    Mishna Wolff grew up in a poor black neighborhood with her single father, a white man who truly believed he was black. "He strutted around with a short perm, a Cosby-esque sweater, gold chains and a Kangol---telling jokes like Redd Fox, and giving advice like Jesse Jackson. You couldn't tell my father he was white. Believe me, I tried," writes Wolff. And so from early childhood on, her father began his crusade to make his white daughter down.

    Ethan Frost is a visionary, a genius, every woman's deepest, darkest fantasy- e ven mine. And, somehow, I am his. He stole into my life like a dream. He turned my reality upside down and made my every desire come true - especially those I never knew I had. He demanded everything I had to give and gave me everything of himself in return. But dreams don't last forever, and ours is no exception - because my nightmares are darker and my wounds deeper than I could ever reveal.
