It's not because you're foreigners. It's because you aren't foreign enough ... or else that you are too foreign Just as the Krull house sits on the edge of a rural French town, the family occupies a marginal place in the life of the community around them. Snubbed by the locals despite having lived there for decades, they rely on trade with passing sailors to earn a living. When their relative arrives unannounced from Germany, with his unsettling, nonchalant ways, the family becomes the target of increasing suspicion and the scapegoat for a terrible crime. Written on the eve of the Second World War, The Krull House is a taut, strangely prophetic novel about how distrust and hostility towards outsiders descends into hate-filled violence.

Raymond-Raoul Lambert's Diary has been among the most important untranslated records of the experience of French Jews in the Holocaust. Lambert, a leader of the Union of French Jews (UGIF), was, in the words of the historian Michael Marrus, "arguably the most important Jewish official in contact with the Vichy government and the Germans." Lambert's Diary survived the war and was published in France in 1985. It reveals Lambert's efforts to save the Jews in France, particularly the children.

The book is primarily intended as a textbook on modern algebra for undergraduate mathematics students. It is also useful for those who are interested in supplementary reading at a higher level. The text is designed in such a way that it encourages independent thinking and motivates students towards further study. The book covers all major topics in group, ring, vector space and module theory that are usually contained in a standard modern algebra text. In addition, it studies semigroup, group action, Hopf's group, topological groups and Lie groups with their actions, applications of ring theory to algebraic geometry, and defines Zariski topology, as well as applications of module theory to structure theory of rings and homological algebra. Algebraic aspects of classical number theory and algebraic number theory are also discussed with an eye to developing modern cryptography. Topics on applications to algebraic topology, category theory, algebraic geometry, algebraic number theory, cryptography and theoretical computer science interlink the subject with different areas. Each chapter discusses individual topics, starting from the basics, with the help of illustrative examples. This comprehensive text with a broad variety of concepts, applications, examples, exercises and historical notes represents a valuable and unique resource.

In the thick of it - instead of just being there! Opening a Grand Hotel is more enthralling than many action movies. This is especially true when a team of dedicated hoteliers pursue the goal of guiding the time-honored tradition of the luxury hospitality industry into a new era. Kameha Grand Zurich plays with clich├ęs and also breaks with one or another taboo in the branch. Here hassle is preprogrammed - just as experiences that the guest will not have in any other house in the world. For a Grand Hotel is being opened here that is ultimately unique in its own right. Carsten and Susanne Rath have opened dozens of hotels on four continents. They provide information which we as guests are not privy to even off the record: Are we allowed to check in in flip-flops? How far does freedom actually go in a Grand Hotel? How come that guests in some hotels feel out of place? What trends have a future in the Grand Hotel business, and what relics from old times are the snows of yesteryear?
