There's no accounting for taste. That must be why so many accountants are buying Groo collections! This trade paperback collects the latest and greatest adventures of Groo, the world's stupidest barbarian. In a savage land of another era, a goodly segment of the world has long been under the heavy thumb of the evil, power-mad despot known as Pipil Khan. The tyrant wants nothing more than to name an heir and shuck his mortal coil, but one thing stands in his way: Groo! It seems Khan just can't rest easy until Groo is out of the way. He'll give his kingdom to the one of his sons who can accomplish this. One of them has a foolproof plan how to do it. Unfortunately for him, it may be that no plan is foolproof enough to thwart Groo. Eisner Award-winning cartoonist Sergio Aragonés and "World's Greatest Soccer Mom" Award-winning wordsmith Mark Evanier bring you more moronic mayhem from the barbarian who made "mulch" a household word.

“Fascinating . . . a lively and perceptive cultural history.” —Annette Gordon-Reed, The New Yorker In this wide-ranging, brilliantly researched work, David S. Reynolds traces the factors that made Uncle Tom’s Cabin the most influential novel ever written by an American. Upon its 1852 publication, the novel’s vivid depiction of slavery polarized its American readership, ultimately widening the rift that led to the Civil War. Reynolds also charts the novel’s afterlife—including its adaptation into plays, films, and consumer goods—revealing its lasting impact on American entertainment, advertising, and race relations.

Kansas-born journalist David Kane never expected he would land a lucrative position at New York's Crawley News. Still, he does, and the position is all he could have hoped for until illegal phone hacking allegations by Crawley land on the backs of several New York staffers. The Big Apple isn't so glitzy anymore, even for David. A position opens in Crawley's Nigerian office when a journalist was murdered while investigating the fraudulent testing and distribution of a meningitis vaccine. Despite some of the obvious dangers associated with a foreign country, David gladly accepts his relocation to Africa. After all, Nigeria is a cultural mecca, leading the country in wealth and oil exportation. He receives his first assignment immediately: investigating a bloody coup in Central Africa. The small town boy is soon thrust into a front-line political and religious conflict. He's captured, caught in the deadly Ebola outbreak, and even has a steamy affair with his married translator-an irresistible Nigerian woman recruited by the CIA. David receives the help of a seasoned Scottish journalist, and the newbie Crawley recruit will certainly have a lot to write about-if he has better luck than his dead predecessor.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2015 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1.3, University of Tubingen (English Department), language: English, abstract: The role of language and in particular how it can be manipulated pervaded George Orwell's works from the very beginning. Most readers are familiar with "1984", but the crucial role of language in shaping our lives came up as soon as "Burmese Days." This work analyses many of Orwell's works, prose as well as essays, and shows the paramount importance language and its manipulation played in Orwell's works. George Orwell was unarguably one of the, if not the, most influential political writers in English of the twentieth century, “the cultural icon and mythic figure who is probably more quoted and referenced than any other modern writer” (Rodden, Preface x). Today as well as when he was alive, Orwell was more than a novelist and essayist, but he produced writing in every possible form: reportages, poetry, film and book reviews, opinion columns. Yet, Orwell today has become more than a writer: during the seven decades since his death, he has become a cultural icon, a “mythic literary and public personality” (Rodden, Preface xi) who is not only canonised in school books but who has also become some sort of intellectual hero. The main reason for this is most probably Orwell’s literary integrity or, what is sometimes called, “a sense of decency,” (Atkins 1) which he displayed throughout his whole life. [...]
