The German Handbook
Author: Paul Webster
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Cambridge Express German is for students studying German as a second foreign language in a two or three year course to GCSE/Standard Grade. As the book is designed to complement the Cambridge Express German course, Euroskop is fully cross-referenced to the appropriate pages in The German Handbook. However, the Handbook can be used as a stand-alone reference work, or in conjunction with other courses, and is also invaluable for revision. This updated version of The German Handbook is a practical grammar reference and revision guide for all learners in the first years of learning German.

Sadhguru, More Than a Life
Author: Arundhathi Subramaniam
Publisher: Penguin Books India
‘The thirst to be boundless is not created by you; it is just life longing for itself.’ —Sadhguru This is the extraordinary story of Sadhguru—a young agnostic who turned yogi, a wild motorcyclist who turned mystic, a sceptic who turned spiritual guide. Pulsating with his razor-sharp intelligence, bracing wit and modern-day vocabulary, the book empowers you to explore your spiritual self and could well change your life. It seeks to re-create the life journey of a man who combines rationality with mysticism, irreverence with compassion, ancient wisdom with a provocatively contemporary outlook and a deep knowledge of the self with a contagious love of life. Described as ‘a profound mystic, visionary humanitarian and prominent spiritual leader of our times', he is equally at home in a satsangh in rural Tamil Nadu as at the World Economic Forum in Davos. In his early years, Jaggi Vasudev (or Sadhguru as he is now known) was a chronic truant, a boisterous prankster, and later a lover of motorbikes and fast cars. It is evident that the same urgency, passion and vitality echo in his spiritual pursuits to this day, from his creation of the historic Dhyanalinga—the mission of three lifetimes—to his approach as a guru. In Sadhguru's view, faith and reason, spirituality and science, the sacred and the material, cannot be divided into easy binaries. He sees people as ‘spiritual beings dabbling with the material rather than the reverse’, and liberation as the fundamental longing in every form of life. Truth for him is a living experience instead of a destination, a conclusion, or a matter of metaphysical speculation. The possibility of self-realization, he strongly believes, is available to all. Drawing upon extended conversations with Sadhguru, interviews with Isha colleagues and fellow meditators, poet Arundhathi Subramaniam presents an evocative portrait of a contemporary mystic and guru—a man who seems to pack the intensity and adventure of several lifetimes into a single one.

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 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.

This book deals with bilingual education in general, but it pays special attention to bilingual education in monolingual areas. One central aim is to study the effects of bilingual programmes during the final stages of Primary and Secondary Education in contexts where the L2 (English) is not normally used as an instrument of social communication in the students' environment, but instead is used only at school, where some subject areas are undertaken totally or partially in this language. The reader interested in bilingual education will find a valuable source of information on different bilingual programmes in the USA and Spain: what schools do and the contents they teach, their timetable and extracurricular activities; the specific objectives that they aim to achieve and the methodology they use, with special reference to the CLIL approach, the schools and the students' level of success with bilingual education, the most common problems that they have to face in monolingual areas and how to solve them.

1495: In the peaceful medieval city of Zons, on the banks of the Rhine, a young woman is found hanging from a parapet, raped and mutilated. A month later, another maiden falls prey. Bastian Mühlenberg, head of the City Guard, is determined to decipher the murderer's gruesome code, unaware that he and the woman he loves are in the killer's sights. With the help of an old psychic, a priest, and the stars above, Mühlenberg must solve the “fatal puzzle” before it's too late. Present day: Journalist Emily Richter is thrilled when she's assigned a series of articles about the historic Zons killings. However, right before her stories are to be published, a young woman's body is found hanging from a city tower—grossly maimed and wearing a linen gown, like her medieval predecessors. Detective Oliver Bergmann leads the investigation, tapping the knowledge of the attractive young journalist. Working together—and using Mühlenberg's old notes—they race to stay one step ahead of the copycat killer.
