'I aint always going to be poor, I made me mind up to that.' Dismissed from her position as housemaid under a cloud of misunderstanding, Tilly True is forced to return home. But Tilly is determined to make something of her life and, rather than admit the truth to her poverty-stricken family, she sets out once more in search of employment.

But when she falls for the dangerous charms of Barnaby Palgrave, Tilly soon finds that her troubles have only just begun ...

This textbook investigates the tortuous relationship between established status quo powers and revolutionary states, such as China, North Korea, Iran, Nicaragua and Iraq. It bridges the gap between analyses of revolutions, which tend to concentrate on their domestic causes, and the study of renegade states' impact on the international system. It sees revolutionary states as a central dynamic of modern international society, rather than as aberrations damaging an otherwise stable international body politic. The book provides a series of historical and contemporary case studies and theoretical analyses.

Leben, denke ich manchmal, heißt Staunen. Als die Schriftstellerin Lucy Barton längere Zeit im Krankenhaus verbringen muss, erhält sie Besuch von ihrer Mutter, die sie jahrelang nicht mehr gesehen hat. Zunächst ist sie überglücklich. Doch mit den Gesprächen werden Erinnerungen an ihre Kindheit und Jugend wach, die sie längst hinter sich gelassen zu haben glaubte ... Der neue Roman von Elizabeth Strout ist ein psychologisches Meisterstück, zutiefst menschlich und berührend. Er erzählt die Geschichte einer Frau, die trotz aller Widrigkeiten ihren Weg geht, eine Geschichte über Mütter und Töchter und eine Geschichte über die Liebe, die, so groß sie auch sein mag, immer nur unvollkommen sein kann. Lucy Barton erzählt ihre Geschichte. Sie muss sie erzählen, weil sie auf der Suche nach der Wahrheit ist, als Schriftstellerin wie als Mensch. Und es gibt zu vieles, was ihr Leben geprägt hat und ihr immer noch keine Ruhe lässt. Das wird ihr klar, als sie wegen einer unerklärlichen, lebensbedrohenden Infektion nach einem Routineeingriff längere Zeit im Krankenhaus bleiben muss und plötzlich ihre Mutter an ihrem Bett sitzt. Ihre Mutter, die sie nicht mehr gesehen hat, seit sie ihr Zuhause in einem kleinen Kaff in Illinois verlassen hat. Während sie erschöpft und glücklich der Stimme ihrer Mutter lauscht, die ihr Geschichten von den Leuten aus ihrer Heimat erzählt und was aus ihnen geworden ist, während Mutter und Tochter ein neues Band zu formen scheinen, auch wenn sie nur schweigend aus dem Fenster auf das beleuchtete Chrysler Building gegenüber schauen, kommt alles wieder hoch: die bettelarme Kindheit, die Schwierigkeiten in der Familie, der Mangel an Zärtlichkeit und Zuneigung. Wie der Wunsch, Schriftstellerin zu werden, ihr half, ihre Ängste zu bekämpfen, wie fremd sie sich dennoch manchmal in New York vorkommt. Ihre Ehe mit einem Mann aus einem wohlbehüteten Elternhaus und die vielen Abgründe, die sich zwischen ihnen auftun, trotz des gemeinsamen Lebens und der zwei heißgeliebten Töchter ...
