The second instalment of the Pax Britannica Trilogy by Jan Morris, recreates the British Empire at its dazzling climax - the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897, celebrated as a festival of imperial strength, unity, and splendour. This classic work of history portrays a nation at the very height of its vigour and self-satisfaction, imposing on the rest of the world its traditions and tastes, its idealists and rascals. The Pax Britannica Trilogy also includes Heaven´s Command: An Imperial Progress and Farewell the Trumpets: An Imperial Retreat. Together these three works of history trace the dramatic rise and fall of the British Empire, from the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837 to the death of Winston Churchill in 1965. Jan Morris is world-renowned for her collection of travel writing and reportage, spanning over five decades and including such titles as Venice, Coronation Everest, Hong Kong, Spain, A Writer´s World and most recently, Contact! ´In scholarship and humour this portrait of the British Empire before its decline and fall might, without undue optimism, be placed upon the same shelf as Edward Gibbon´s history. As a survey of its subject, I doubt that Pax Britannica can ever, in this generation be surpassed.´ Financial Times
Globalization and hyper-connectivity are significantly affecting the way all organizations are led, requiring a shift in both leadership approaches and the organization's context/culture. Leadership attributes and behaviors must move from a concentration on what I need to do to what WE must do, if the organization is to succeed. Leaders need to focus on ensuring that within the organization, there is a high degree of engagement. Flat organization structures, operating without command and control hierarchies, will be better able to respond effectively to this new complex, fast-paced, global environment. Through discussions with industry leaders and drawing on her years of consulting and coaching experience, Marilyn Jacobson covers the necessary tools needed in both leadership approach and organization culture to make these adjustments. Jacobson provides examples of positive organizational changes leaders can make to tackle future challenges, highlighting engagement and adaptability as keys to success in this complex, fast-paced, global environment. As a PhD. from Northwestern University, Marilyn Jacobson has taught in the MBA programs at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Loyola University. Over two decades, she has consulted with hospitals, retail, financial, academic organizations and government agencies including Linens 'N Things, AT&T Solutions, MacNeal Hospital, Encyclopedia Britannica and the New York State Commission on Education, to name but a few.

Jan Morris is also world-renowned for her collection of travel writing and reportage, spanning over five decades and including such titles as Venice, Coronation Everest, Hong Kong, Spain, A Writer's World and most recently, Contact! 'The British Empire is fortunate in having found in Morris a chronicler and memorialist who can do it justice. . . Morris writes with inspired gusto, firmly rooted in erudition, which carries the book into the realms of literature.' Sunday Telegraph 'One of our finest writers on Empire - alive to its glory, yet with a beady eye for the corruptions and failures which were at its heart, along with the dreams.' Observer
A language-, border-, and genre-crossing extravaganza from one of the creators of the postmodern novel One of Russia&#8217;s finest novelists and an heir to the literature of Gogol, Bulgakov, and Nabokov, Andrei Bitov has been widely hailed as a progenitor of the postmodern novel. The Teacher of Symmetry is his love letter to the art of storytelling. Layered with playful games between writer and reader, this delightful, challenging work explores the relationship between an author and his creations, and the sacrifices that a writer may make out of ardor for his art. Bitov tells us that The Teacher of Symmetry is the &#8220;echo&#8221; of a British novel that he once read and is now trying to reconstruct through the moth holes of memory and the fog of a foreign tongue. As the book proceeds, we encounter a series of curious episodes: A man meets the devil on a park bench and the devil shows him photographs of the fall of Troy, Shakespeare&#8217;s legs, and a terrible event that will take place in his future. A king who reigns over all possible worlds and uses his power to remove stars from the sky turns out to be the compiler of the Encyclopedia Britannica. Villagers squabble over a self-proclaimed space alien, and a literary society decides that it will accept only new members whose works are unwritten. Through it all, Bitov proceeds with the wit and mastery of a fabulist in perfect command of his fables.
