Many on the police force serving with young beat constable Peter Roberts in 1964 believe he has the potential to go far. But Edward Brookes, a professor at the University of Kent at Canterbury, has other plans for Roberts. Brookes kidnaps Roberts from the 1960s and brings him 50 years into the future, landing him in the year 2014. The professor forces the officer to cooperate in a scheme to research the past lives of senior politicians so Brookes can blackmail them for political gain. If Roberts doesn’t cooperate, Brookes threatens that he’ll never go back to his beat. Paired with Jane, a university student working on her PhD in 2014, the two carry out their duties as assigned by Brookes. But their situation becomes perilous when they discover the body of Ed’s assistant, apparently murdered because he became a security risk. As Jane and Roberts develop an unlikely romance, they realize their services may no longer be useful to Brookes. Will they suffer the same fate as Brookes’ assistant?

Following in the successful vein of Managing for the Future (1992) and Managing in a Time of Great Change (1995), the incomparable Peter Drucker is back with fresh thoughts, insights, and knowledge about the ever-changing business society around us and the ever-expanding management roles required of us all-chiefs, executives, managers, and knowledge workers alike. Two main themes are explored in many of the chapters in Managing in the Next Society: the rapidly expanding information shock wave that had its Internet Big Bang as recently as 1995; and the changing shape of our society to come-six major trends that are rapidly transforming our world into what Peter Drucker calls The Next Society.

Richard Feynman once quipped that "Time is what happens when nothing else does." But Julian Barbour disagrees: if nothing happened, if nothing changed, then time would stop. For time is nothing but change. It is change that we perceive occurring all around us, not time. Put simply, time does not exist. In this highly provocative volume, Barbour presents the basic evidence for a timeless universe, and shows why we still experience the world as intensely temporal. It is a book that strikes at the heart of modern physics. It casts doubt on Einstein's greatest contribution, the spacetime continuum, but also points to the solution of one of the great paradoxes of modern science, the chasm between classical and quantum physics. Indeed, Barbour argues that the holy grail of physicists--the unification of Einstein's general relativity with quantum mechanics--may well spell the end of time. Barbour writes with remarkable clarity as he ranges from the ancient philosophers Heraclitus and Parmenides, through the giants of science Galileo, Newton, and Einstein, to the work of the contemporary physicists John Wheeler, Roger Penrose, and Steven Hawking. Along the way he treats us to enticing glimpses of some of the mysteries of the universe, and presents intriguing ideas about multiple worlds, time travel, immortality, and, above all, the illusion of motion. The End of Time is a vibrantly written and revolutionary book. It turns our understanding of reality inside-out.

Roanoke Shops has been an indispensable part of the Roanoke Valley and the “Magic City” for more than 125 years. Founded in 1881 as an independent company, Roanoke Machine Works built new locomotives and cars for the Shenandoah Valley and Norfolk & Western Railroads. Situated between the picturesque Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains, the facility caused an economic boom in the nearby village of Big Lick and the surrounding area. By 1891, Big Lick had become Roanoke and had emerged as one of the most important economic centers in the New South. Today, Roanoke Shops employs skilled craftsmen who provide the highest-quality overhauls and repairs to diesel locomotives. This book takes a look into its history, particularly at production during that exciting and enchanting era of the steam locomotive.

Shortlisted for the Whitbread Award: “this bleak tale” of a month in the life of a family struggling with addiction “is a work of considerable force” (The Scotsman, UK). Punchy, sharp-witted and acutely observed, Born Free tells the story of an ordinary family living in Edinburgh, Scotland, and dealing with their troubles in an all-too ordinary way: each member is trying to escape life—and each other—through his or her drug of choice, whether it’s alcohol, sex, Prozac, or the Internet. The interactions between parents Angie and Vic, and their teenage children Jake and Joni, reveal a hellish cocktail of mid-life crises and adolescent angst; the savagery of sibling rivalry; the waking nightmare of a marriage gone cold—and the unbridgeable, infernal chasm between the generations. It’s a story of everyday life. Shortlisted for the Whitbread First Novel Award Nominated for the Orange Prize “One of Scotland’s most talented writers.”—Daily Telegraph, UK
