Laughing Whitefish is an engrossing trail drama of ethnic hostility and the legal defense of Indian treaties. Young Lawyer William (Willy) Poe puts out a shingle in Marquette, Michigan, in 1873, hoping to meet a woman who will take him seriously. His first client, the alluring Charlotte Kawbawgam, known as Laughing Whitefish, offers an enticing challenge—a compelling case of injustice at the hands of powerful mining interests. Years earlier, Charlotte's father led the Jackson Mining Company to a lucrative iron ore strike, and he was then granted a small share in the mine, which the new owners refuse to honor. Willy is now Charlotte's sole recourse for justice. Laughing Whitefish is a gripping account of barriers between Indian people and their legal rights. These poignant conflicts are delicately wrought by the pre-eminent master of the trial thriller, the best-selling author of Anatomy of a Murder. This new edition includes a foreword by Matthew L.M. Fletcher, Director of the Indigenous Law and Policy Center at Michigan State University, that contextualizes the novel and actual decisions of the Michigan Supreme Court ruling in favor of Charlotte.

New York, 1919. Roger Mifflin hat seine größte Leidenschaft, das Lesen, zum Beruf gemacht. In seinem Antiquariat in Brooklyn findet man ihn dort, wo der Tabakrauch am dichtesten ist. Unterstützt wird er von seiner ebenso patenten wie resoluten Ehefrau und seinem Hund Bock - Bock wie Boccaccio. Bücher sind Mifflins Leben. Von Werbemaßnahmen für sein Geschäft will er allerdings nichts wissen, und so lässt er den jungen Aubrey Gilbert, angestellt bei der Grey Matter Agency, ziemlich abblitzen, als der ihm seine Dienste anbietet. Dennoch freunden sich die beiden an, und bald kommt Gilbert täglich ins Geschäft. Was auch an Mifflins neuer Hilfskraft liegen mag - der schönen Titania Chapman, deren Leben in Gefahr zu sein scheint. Und das gilt nicht nur für ihr Leben ...

»Sie waren auf dem Land, am Ende der Welt, und es gab kein Zurück.« – Nach dem Tod ihrer Eltern kehren sie für einen Sommer zurück in das alte englische Landhaus: Die vier Geschwister Harriet, Roland, Alice und Fran. Jetzt, in ihren Vierzigern und Fünfzigern, müssen sie entscheiden, ob sie das Haus ihrer Jugend, Erbe ihrer Vergangenheit, bewahren oder verkaufen sollen. Alice, gescheiterte Schauspielerin und unbelehrbare Romantikerin, bringt Kasim, den gerade erwachsenen Sohn ihres Ex-Partners mit, und Roland seine junge Tochter Molly, hübsch und unkonventionell. Sie alle zieht das alte Anwesen in seinen Bann, längst überwunden geglaubte Spannungen lodern wieder auf, und neue erotische Verwicklungen bahnen sich an. Doch auch dieser Sommer geht zu Ende, und über das Haus muss eine Entscheidung getroffen werden.

This major new series in the philosophy of science aims to provide a new generation of textbooks for the subject. The series will not only offer fresh treatments of core topics in the theory and methodology of scientific knowledge, but also introductions to newer areas of the discipline. Furthermore, the series will cover topics in current science that raise significant foundational issues both for scientific theory and for philosophy more generally. Biology raises distinct questions of its own not only for philosophy of science, but for metaphysics, epistemology and ethics. This comprehensive new textbook for a rapidly growing field of study provides students new to the subject with an up-to-date presentation of the key philosophical issues. Care is taken throughout to keep the technicalities accessible to the non-biologist but without sacrificing the philosophical subtleties. The first part of the book covers the philosophical challenges posed by evolution and evolutionary biology, beginning with Darwin's central argument in the Origin of the Species. Individual chapters cover natural selection, the selfish gene, alternative units of selection, developmental systems theory, adaptionism and issues in macroevolution. The second part of the book examines philosophical questions arising in connection with biological traits, function, nature and nurture, and biological kinds. The third part of the book examines metaphysical questions, biology's relation with the traditional concerns of philosophy of science, and how evolution has been introduced into epistemological debates. The final part considers the relevance of biology to questions about ethics, religion and human nature.
