英文概要: “Nancy Thayer is the queen of beach books.” —The Star-Ledger

A Nantucket woman returns home to find that reunions aren’t always simple, in this heartwarming novel from the New York Times bestselling author of A Nantucket Wedding and Secrets in Summer.

Keely Green always dreamed of leaving the beautiful shores of Nantucket to become a writer. Now she’s a bestselling novelist living in New York City, attending glamorous cocktail parties and mingling with the literary elite. Keely is also dating a charming, perfectly fine pediatric surgeon who looks good on paper but isn’t “the one.” She just can’t bear to break it off—until he declares his desire to settle down. Then Keely’s editor rejects her latest novel. With her personal and professional lives suddenly in shambles, Keely longs for the soothing island way of life.

Growing up, Keely and her best friend, Isabelle, were inseparable. Nothing could come between them—except, as it turned out, Keely’s high school boyfriend, Tommy. Returning home would mean facing Isabelle’s bitter betrayal and seeing for herself the family Tommy and Isabelle have created, the life that might have been Keely’s.

But when Keely’s mother falls into a deep depression, Keely knows what she must do, even though she is reluctant to face her estranged friend. And encountering Isabelle’s older brother, Sebastian—Keely’s longtime crush—only complicates things.

In one incredible summer, Keely must confront the mistakes of the past if she has any chance of finding true happiness in the place she will always call home. Nancy Thayer shines yet again in this uplifting tale of forgiveness and self-discovery.

代理商:大苹果 LAW AND AUTONOMOUS MACHINES: THE CO-EVOLUTION OF LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY AND TECHNOLOGY
by MARK CHINEN
页数:264    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-7-19
< /td>
英文概要: This book sets out a possible trajectory for the co-development of legal responsibility on the one hand and artificial intelligence and the machines and systems driven by it on the other. As autonomous technologies become more sophisticated it will be harder to attribute harms caused by them to the humans who design or work with them. This will put pressure on legal responsibility and autonomous technologies to co-evolve. Mark Chinen illustrates how these factors strengthen incentives to develop even more advanced systems, which in turn inspire nascent calls to grant legal and moral status to autonomous machines. This book is a valuable resource for scholars and practitioners of legal doctrine, ethics and autonomous technologies, as well as legislators and policy makers, and engineers and designers who are interested in the broader implications of their work.

代理商:大苹果 HOW THEY RULE THE WORLD: THE SECRET STRATEGIES OF WORLD POWER
by PEDRO BANOS (TRANSLATED BY JETHRO SOUTAR)
页数:336    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-7-19
< /td>
英文概要: Is there anything more cut-throat than global politics?

Wherever you turn – Europe, Russia, China, Korea, Syria, the Middle East – we are living in a time of global geopolitical power plays. Once an insider to this closed world, Pedro Banos reveals that however it might be smoothed over by the PR of political diplomacy, the world of geopolitics is one of war and conflict by strategic means, where countries have sought dominion and power over their rivals since the dawn of time.

Banos presents this high-stakes game as a series of 22 universal rules on how to act and exert influence in the international sphere. Each principle is contextualised in both classical and modern history, from Bismarck to Kissinger, but also related to the current world of Trump, Putin and Xi Jinping. With titles like ‘Kicking Away the Ladder’, ‘The Tower of Champagne Glasses’, ‘The Madman’, and ‘The Mule and the Saddlebags’, How They Rule the World is a practical set of rules for engagement that can be enjoyed by anyone. Written with the philosophic, aphoristic timelessness of a von Bulow, Sun Tzu or Machiavelli, Banos has created an utterly gripping manual on the secrets of how strategic power really works. 

 
中文概要:
作者介绍: Pedro Baños is an army colonel and certified military strategist now serving in a reserve capacity. He was formerly Chief of Counterintelligence and Security for the European Armed Forces in Strasbourg. He has participated in missions in Bosnia-Herzegovina (UNPROFOR, SFOR, and EUFOR) and is one of the most highly regarded specialists in geopolitics, strategy, defense, security, terrorism, intelligence, and international relations.

< /td>
英文概要: A humorous, illustrated guide to ’new stuff’, including vocabulary, for older people

A handy guide for anyone who says, ’The Facebook’ or ’The Google’ or who asks, ’Do they deliver emails on Sunday?’ This is a book for the elderly and not-so-elderly who are bamboozled not just by the technology of the contemporary world, but also various modern concepts and conceits that the more youthful take for granted. It explains a host of modern concepts and technologies that have entered everyday use and parlance but which are alien (and possibly frightening) not just to the elderly, but probably anyone over forty-five. These concepts are universal and should therefore appeal to readers in the UK, Australia, US and Europe. The definitions are all real, but entertaining, making use of easy-to-understand ’real world’ references or examples to explain them. 

 
中文概要:
作者介绍: Mark Leigh’s career has taken him from working as a scriptwriter for TV comedy acts such as Hale and Pace, through the ’Mad Men’ world of advertising copywriting to developing concepts for radio and TV comedy shows and writing bestselling humour books. Over the past twenty years he has written or co-written dozens of books, including titles with Chris Tarrant and Roy Chubby Brown. Mark lives just outside London in Surrey.

英文概要: A heart-warming and humorous look at nature and motherhood by the most successful crime writers of recent years

I have always loved the Cotswolds. I think I loved them even before I found them, in that half-formed ideal one has of where to put down roots. Somewhere peaceful, green, where the road meanders between drystone walls and from town to town, and a strip of blue bursts from brook to river and back again.

For 8 years, Clare Mackintosh wrote for Cotswold Life about the ups and downs of life with a young family in the countryside. In this memoir she brings together all of those stories - and more - for the first time. From keeping chickens to getting the WI drunk, longing for an Aga to dealing with nits, Clare opens the door to family life with warmth and humour and heart. 

 
中文概要:
作者介绍: Clare Mackintosh read French at Royal Holloway University. She joined the police force on a graduate training programme and worked for Thames Valley Police, including time on CID, in Custody and as a Public Order Commander. She is the Director of the Chipping Norton Literary Festival. Her novels, I LET YOU GO, I SEE YOU and LET ME LIE are all bestsellers and have been sold in thirty-eights territories.

页数:275    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-7-18

英文概要: Featuring a foreword by Gabriel Garcia Marquez ("Che Guevara in Africa"), this book fills in the missing chapter in Che Guevara’s life as head of the secret Cuban force that went to aid the liberation movement in the Congo against the Belgian colonialists in 1965. The idea was to prepare a group of Cubans for the mission to Bolivia, as well as to assist African national liberation movements.

This diary remained unpublished for decades because of its controversial content, but, like his other diaries, reveals Che’s great literary gift, his razor-sharp intellect, his dry wit, and his brutal honesty. Because this diary deals with what Che admits was a "failure," he examines every painful detail about what went wrong in order to draw constructive lessons for future expeditions.

英文概要: Disembodied research erects false dichotomies between flesh and reason, and between the corporeal and the social. By contrast, Torkild Thanem and David Knights engage with approaches and practices that exploit the body’s capacity to generate knowledge, craft lively accounts, and create fleshy concepts. These approaches enrich our understanding of how people live, work, and interact with their bodies within the social world.

Thanem and Knights discuss methods, practices, and personal experiences which involve bodies in the research process – in generating and analysing empirical material, reflecting on the work they do as researchers, and turning research into written text.

Embodied Research Methods is an important and practical resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students across the social sciences, and a thought-provoking read for researchers in these areas.

英文概要: The salient organizational development challenge in modern times is that of building a highly engaged workforce that is committed, productive and innovative.

Employees wish to give their very best at work. Organizations also make every effort to provide an atmosphere where people can do their best. However, despite intensive efforts from both sides, engagement still remains elusive.

This book emphasizes the role that the employee and the institution need to play, in order to make people engagement possible. It spells out a novel engagement paradigm that starts from the fundamentals i.e. the intrinsic nature of the human being and the basic nature of organizational work in modern society.

英文概要: An engaging book that introduces students to the ‘practice’ of entrepreneurship in emerging and developing economies.

The predominant understanding of enterprise and entrepreneurship (E&E) has emerged from the perspective of industrialized and economically developed countries, largely ignoring emerging and developing economies (EDEs). Further, business and management students are considered ideal for innovating business ideas unlike students of law, physics or literature. Therefore, the benefits of E&E education fail to impact a vast majority of students from EDEs. Entrepreneurship in Developing and Emerging Economies breaks away from these two trends, presenting alternative pathways to students for ‘practicing’ (as opposed to ‘just learning’ about) E&E. The content is made approachable, accessible and relatable, and ‘no’ prior learning is expected.
