Elfenritter Roiben wird zum König des Unseligen Hofes gekrönt. Kaye, ein bei den Menschen aufgewachsener Wechselbalg, liebt ihn und muss diese Liebe durch eine scheinbar unlösbare Aufgabe beweisen. Völlig verzweifelt lässt sich Kaye auf die Intrigen der Königin des Seligen Hofes ein, die ihrerseits versucht, Roiben's Hof zu übernehmen. Ein dramatisches Duell soll über dessen Leben oder Tod entscheiden. Die Fortsetzung von "Die Zehnte" (vgl. BA 6/03) knüpft unmittelbar an die Handlung des 1. Bandes (auch unter dem Titel "Die Elfentochter" erschienen) an. Sie spielt weiterhin im Wechsel zwischen Elfenwelt und menschlichem Randgruppenmilieu. An beiden Orten werden Brutalität und Kriminalität kaum hinterfragt. Sprachlich reifer, schlüssig und spannend bis zur letzten Seite präsentiert Holly Black ihre Helden. Roiben, gereift, besticht durch seine aufrechte Haltung, während Kaye durch die Auseinandersetzung mit ihren Gefühlen wie Liebeskummer, Selbstzweifel, ihre Beziehung zu Menschen und das Infragestellen übermittelter Werte Sympathieträgerin wird. Nicht nur zur Fortsetzung empfohlen.. - Während der Krönung Roibens erklärt Kaye ihm öffentlich ihre Liebe. Zum Beweis soll sie eine unlösbare Aufgabe lösen und gerät in die Intrigen der Seligen Königin. Ab 14.

Gegen Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs, als die kommende Niederlage des Deutschen Reiches sich immer deutlicher abzeichnete, stellte die deutsche Führung eine Volksmiliz auf: den Deutschen Volkssturm. Bald schon wurde klar, dass zur Bewaffnung von Hitlers letztem Aufgebot viel zu wenig Material zur Verfügung stand. Da schon für die regulären Soldaten zu wenige Gewehre vorhanden waren, suchte die Parteiführung nach Möglichkeiten, die neu geschaffenen Kombattanten zu bewaffnen. Bald kam der Gedanke auf, eine Einfachwaffe zu schaffen, die zumindest so lange ihren Zweck erfüllte, bis die unmittelbare Gefahr von den Reichsgrenzen abgewendet war. Damit startete das Volksgewehrprogramm und die deutsche Industrie begann unter Hochdruck, ein solches einfach zu produzierendes Gewehr zu entwickeln. Dieses Buch vermittelt einen Überblick über die tatsächlich im Rahmen des Volksgewehrprogramms gebauten Langwaffen. Es rekonstruiert die Entstehungsgeschichte jedes einzelnen dieser Volkssturmgewehre und zeigt die jeweiligen Varianten. Zugleich prüft es, welche Waffen tatsächlich zum Einsatz kamen und von Volkssturmmännern im Kampf geführt wurden.

Consolidation, innovation and relevance in research and policy

This edited volume takes stock of the state of research and policy on the issue of Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW), ten years after the UN first agreed to deal with the problem. The end of the Cold War originated a series of phenomena that would subsequently come to dominate the political agenda. Perhaps most symptomatic of the ensuing environment is the marked escalation in the scale and dynamics of armed violence, driven by the proliferation of SALW. Events in Rwanda, Somalia and Bosnia seared into global consciousness the devastating effects of this phenomenon, and of the necessity to engage actively in its limitation and prevention. This edited volume explores and outlines the research and policy on the SALW issue at this critical juncture. In addition to providing a detailed telling of the genesis and evolution of SALW research and advocacy, the volume features a series of essays from leading scholars in the field on both advances in research and action on SALW. It reflects on what has been achieved in terms of cumulative advances in data, methodology and analysis, and looks at the ways in which these developments have helped to inform policy making at national, regional and international levels. Alongside situating and integrating past and present advances in advocacy and international action, Controlling Small Arms also outlines future directions for research and action. This book will be of much interest to students of small arms, peace and conflict studies, peacebuilding, security studies and IR.
