Between September and December 2016, Ludovic Balland set out to document how Americans were making sense of the campaigns and the constant hum of media coverage in the run up to and aftermath of the contentious general election. On his 13,000-mile road trip across the country, he called on twenty cities and attended major events, such as the inauguration and the Women's March in Washington, DC. The result of this four-month road trip is American Readers at Home, which collects interviews with more than two hundred people living in cities and small towns across the United States. With print media struggling to survive in an age of twenty-four-hour real-time news and social media feeds, American Readers at Home presents a new, personalized model of story-telling in journalism that reaches audiences by emphasizing how everyday news items relate to personal experience and form people's views. Throughout the trip, Ballard and his collaborators spoke with a wide variety of American citizens, reflecting the diversity of perspectives in the contemporary United States, including people of vastly different social, economic, and cultural backgrounds and both everyday citizens as well as politicians and celebrities. Through their statements and the expressive full-page color portraits featured in the book, we are encouraged to consider their perspectives--their hopes, fears, and expectations both before and after the election. Filled with fascinating insights, American Readers at Home is the comprehensive archive of this fascinating media project originally published across multiple platforms, including the project's website and social media channels, as well as local print and online newspapers and radio and television stations that distributed the interviews. It forms a highly original record of the United States at a time when at a time when the country was facing great uncertainty and change.

Hammer's German Grammar and Usage has long occupied a pre-eminent position in the field of German studies. Unrestricted by the formal written language, it is firmly based on current usage rather than prescription, covering all the main grammatical phenomena of German and embracing regional variations and registers of the modern standard language. The combination of reference grammar and manual of current usage has proved invaluable for students and teachers of German at intermediate and advanced level. This new edition continues to build on the book's reputation for accessibility and comprehensiveness. The fourth edition has been revised in accordance to the new spelling and punctuation reform and all examples have been updated. With special attention to student needs, the tables summarising basic points have been expanded and the book's layout modified to make it even more accessible. A new glossary of grammatical terms has been added and the three separate indexes have been combined into one.

The three Brontë sisters – Anne, Charlotte and Emily – moved to Haworth Parsonage as children in 1820. It was there, on the edge of the dramatic landscape of the Yorkshire Moors, that they produced some of the most memorable, influential and best-loved novels in the English language. Ann Dinsdale paints a detailed picture of everyday life at Haworth in the 1840s, recounting the Brontë family history and describing the local village and surrounding countryside. She goes on to consider the Brontës' poetry and novels in the context of their socio-historic background. This book provides fascinating insight into the lives of the authors of The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights and will be a must for both literature students and Brontë admirers. It is illustrated with numerous rarely seen images from the Haworth archives, including drawings by Charlotte and Emily, together with evocative pictures by local photographer Simon Warner.

The United States no doubt will be involved in the Middle East for many decades. To be sure, settling the Israeli-Palestinian dispute or alleviating poverty could help to stem the tides of Islamic radicalism and anti-American sentiment. But on an ideological level, we must confront a specific interpretation of Islamic law, history, and scripture that is a danger to both the United States and its allies. To win that ideological war, we must understand the sources of both Islamic radicalism and liberalism. We need to comprehend more thoroughly the ways in which militants misinterpret and pervert Islamic scripture. Al-Qaeda has produced its own group of spokespersons who attempt to provide religious legitimacy to the nihilism they preach. Many frequently quote from the Quran and hadith (the Prophet Muhammad's sayings and deeds) in a biased manner to draw justification for their cause.
