'Remarkable... disabused, prophetic, and flawlessly penetrating' André Aciman The devastating rediscovered classic written from the horrors of Nazi Germany, as one Jewish man attempts to flee persecution in the wake of Kristallnacht BERLIN, NOVEMBER 1938. With storm troopers battering against his door, Otto Silbermann must flee out the back of his own home. He emerges onto streets thrumming with violence: it is Kristallnacht, and synagogues are being burnt, Jews rounded up and their businesses destroyed. Turned away from establishments he had long patronised, betrayed by friends and colleagues, Otto finds his life as a respected businessman has dissolved overnight. Desperately trying to conceal his Jewish identity, he takes train after train across Germany in a race to escape this homeland that is no longer home. Twenty-three-year-old Ulrich Alexander Boschwitz wrote The Passenger at breakneck speed in 1938, fresh in the wake of the Kristallnacht pogroms, and his prose flies at the same pace. Shot through with Hitckcockian tension, The Passenger is a blisteringly immediate story of flight and survival in Nazi Germany.

This book presents selected papers from the 23rd Asia Pacific Symposium on Intelligent and Evolutionary Systems (IES 2019), which was held in Tottori, Japan, on December 6–8, 2019. Today, various types of intelligent system can be found everywhere. However, none of them can be developed or understood from only one perspective. As such, this book collects unique ways of thinking about intelligent systems. It discusses evolutionary and complex adaptive systems, which have been useful approaches for tackling intelligent systems. It also examines the recent developments in the field of artificial intelligence that are driving research on intelligent systems. Addressing topics related to intelligent transport systems, machine learning and neural networks, data science and decision analytics, evolutionary and nature-inspired computation, and agents and complex systems, this book is a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners wanting to develop or understand intelligent and evolutionary systems.

"Every man who undertakes the journey to the Our Lord's Sepulcher needs three sacks: a sack of patience, a sack of silver, and a sack of faith."—Symon Semeonis, an Irish medieval pilgrim As medieval pilgrims made their way to the places where Jesus Christ lived and suffered, they experienced, among other things: holy sites, the majesty of the Egyptian pyramids (often referred to as the "Pharaoh's granaries"), dips in the Dead Sea, unfamiliar desert landscapes, the perils of traveling along the Nile, the customs of their Muslim hosts, Barbary pirates, lice, inconsiderate traveling companions, and a variety of difficulties, both great and small. In this richly detailed study, Nicole Chareyron draws on more than one hundred firsthand accounts to consider the journeys and worldviews of medieval pilgrims. Her work brings the reader into vivid, intimate contact with the pilgrims' thoughts and emotions as they made the frequently difficult pilgrimage to the Holy Land and back home again. Unlike the knights, princes, and soldiers of the Crusades, who traveled to the Holy Land for the purpose of reclaiming it for Christendom, these subsequent pilgrims of various nationalities, professions, and social classes were motivated by both religious piety and personal curiosity. The travelers not only wrote journals and memoirs for themselves but also to convey to others the majesty and strangeness of distant lands. In their accounts, the pilgrims relate their sense of astonishment, pity, admiration, and disappointment with humor and a touching sincerity and honesty. These writings also reveal the complex interactions between Christians, Jews, and Muslims in the Holy Land. Throughout their journey, pilgrims confronted occasionally hostile Muslim administrators (who controlled access to many holy sites), Bedouin tribes, Jews, and Turks. Chareyron considers the pilgrims' conflicted, frequently simplistic, views of their Muslim hosts and their social and religious practices.

The conception of the Pegasus engine in 1957 upset all the conventions of aircraft design. It was previously usual for aircraft designers to seek a suitable engine, but this was an engine that sought an aircraft. The aircraft thatresulted was the famous Harrier that is still in front-line service with air forces around the world including the RAF and US Marine Corps. This book takes an in-depth look at the engine's original design concept, initial production and flight testing. It then goes on to explain how the developments and improvements have been made over the ensuing years and includes experiences of operational combat flying, both from land and sea.The book is written in a non technical style that makes comfortable reading for all enthusiasts and historians and is copiously illustrated with many previously unseen photographs and diagrams.

ROBERT HUNTER (Grateful Dead Songwriter and Lyricist): "Alexander is a modern de Maupassant with a Kafkian sense of linearity, a Borgesque bent for the uncanny, and a unique pile of resources to draw on. …His stories transcend interpersonal morality and ethics in a way calculated to elicit the pure subjectivity of the characters, without judgment. Unlike Dostoyevski's Raskolnikov, there is no redemption offered to readers demanding moral resolution. Poe's The Tell-tale Heart and much of Lovecraft's work come closest to what he does. Kafka gets the intellectual setup but doesn't develop the emotional intensity. [Alexander's] work is very unique." SAN FRANCISCO SALVO: "David Alexander sets strong and resourceful characters into settings that are simultaneously familiar and bizarre. His stories are everyone's, at least everyone that is paying attention to the continual apocalypse of life and relationship in the 21st century. In Haywire Car Alarm Deep In September Night Alexander carries the vision of modern life to hallucinogenic heights and answers the dilemma of dream and reality: Each are so vitally important to the person experiencing them that the question of reality becomes secondary. What is most important in life is common to both: an urge to penetrate the mystery, to be socially effective, to solve, to writhe in pleasure and terror. In the waking and dreaming states, the observant mind finds that each informs the other, each provides insight to the other domain, each provides a possible solution to the mind that desperately attempts to contain them both. As a critic, I feel compelled to complain about some failure of quality of the work that I criticize. However, I can find little to complain about. Alexander's characters are developed clearly through their actions. None of them spend much time complaining about their situation but instead face it squarely, dynamically, peering into the mystery, clearly seeing its details actively played out in visual and audio cues, and trying to interpret and solve. That they so often end in defeat in spite of their strengths, alludes to the awesome mass of the problem that we all face." FREDERICK BARTHELME (EDITOR IN CHIEF, MISSISSIPPI REVIEW): "There are few young story writers working today more vibrant, innovative and exciting than David Alexander. His stories jump off the page in fits of sensory attack, spiritual complication, emotional trouble. I don't know where he came from, but I know where he's going -- to the front rank of American storytellers."

The novel is set in the Soviet Union. It describes a well known episode in the Cold War when Soviet fighters shot down a Korean passenger plane on the 1st September 1983. The story is based on the official Soviet statements, issued on the 2nd, 3rd and 6th September. Only the third one admitted that their fighters had brought down the plane. Behind this succession of contradictory versions lies a debate. What went on behind the scenes? The main character is Nikolai Taranenko in charge of the Electronics Laboratory of the Soviet Armed Forces. He is brilliant in his job, greatly respected by the authorities. After destroying the plane the Soviet leadership realised that it was a blunder. The KGB arrested Taranenko blaming him for the lack of a device that could have recognised the plane as being a passenger plane. But then Taranenko turns the tables

In the right hands, cosmetic or plastic surgery can become a work of beauty and a tremendous boost to a person's self-esteem. In the wrong hands, cosmetic surgery can become a powerful force to destroy one's self-esteem and any trace of confidence a person may have in the very core of his or her soul. In The Ultimate Violation, author Kurtess Lief Scone tells the story of his life-his time suffering from rickets as a young boy; his adolescence; the role his relationship to Jesus Christ has played in his life; and his adulthood, during which, disliking his facial appearance, he underwent plastic surgery. In this memoir, he discusses the malpractice of his surgeon and being forced to deal with the negative consequences followed by mental and emotional issues related to abnormal cosmetic changes. Scone provides tools and strategies to help others find the right cosmetic surgeon. The Ultimate Violation details Scone's journey to seek justice and overcome the embarrassment, shame, and humiliation he experienced at the hands of an unethical surgeon.

Astrid Jones desperately wants to confide in someone, but her mother's pushiness and her father's lack of interest tell her they're the last people she can trust. Instead, Astrid spends hours lying on the backyard picnic table watching airplanes fly overhead. She doesn't know the passengers inside, but they're the only people who won't judge her when she asks them her most personal questions . . . like what it means that she's falling in love with a girl. As her secret relationship becomes more intense and her friends demand answers, Astrid has nowhere left to turn. She can't share the truth with anyone except the people at thirty thousand feet, and they don't even know she's there. But little does Astrid know just how much even the tiniest connection will affect these strangers' lives--and her own--for the better. In this truly original portrayal of a girl struggling to break free of society's definitions, Printz Honor author A.S. King asks readers to question everything--and offers hope to those who will never stop seeking real love.

In Fingering the Jagged Grain, Keith E. Byerman discusses how black writers such as Toni Morrison, Ishmael Reed, and Ernest Gaines have moved away from the ideological rigidity of the black arts movement that arose in the 1960s to create a more expressive, imaginative, and artistic fiction inspired by the example of Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man. Combining a strong concern for technique and craftsmanship with elements of African American heritage including jazz, blues, spirituals, cautionary tales, and voodoo, these writers have created a vital fiction that celebrates the strength and resilience of the black American voice as it recounts the painful details and brutal episodes of black experience.
