The major American industries—agriculture, petroleum, electricity, banking, telecommunications, movies, college sports, airlines, health care, and the beer, cigarette, and automotive industries—intersect our lives every day. Studying these industries raises a number of economic questions: How are the individual industries organized and structured? What is their history? What are the dominant organizations in each field, and what share of their market do they represent? What is the nature of competition in these fields, and how effectively does it govern economic decision making? The nature of these industries also raises a host of public policy challenges: What significant policy issues do they pose, what options are available for addressing them, and what role can and should the government play? Unlike other books that offer economic treatments focused on theoretical expositions and analyses, the thirteenth edition addresses all these questions in a manner that treats each industry in a comprehensive, holistic way. Brock’s approach focuses on everyday experience, enhancing readers’ understanding through examples that emphasize incident and detail. Each chapter, written by an expert in the field, has been updated or rewritten for this edition. A new chapter on the movie industry has been added as well. This outstanding overview of American industry offers the reader a live laboratory of clinical examination and comparative analysis.

The Second Edition of Own Your Lemons is currently in production and will be available this Fall! ************************ A lemon can be many things from a delicious citrus fruit to a dud of a car but most importantly it is something you can own. The idea for Own Your Lemons came to me when I was a freshly faced law student learning the basic of contracts, property law, and family law. As the daughter of Dr. Mary Lemon Brooks nephew I have always been interested in the fundamentals of law and how law connects the world. My first legal fellowship after graduating law school focused on art and entertainment law it was there I learned the fundamentals of intellectual property from renowned entertainment attorney John Renaud of Turner/Time Warner. In this second edition of Own Your Lemons I am delighted to share some of these internal secrets with you. When you first think of intellectual property (IP) what comes to mind? Is it the last commercial you watched on YouTube or the last item you bought in the grocery store? IP plays a large part in the branding and marketing we all see on a daily basis from slogans like “Where's the beef?” and “We have the meats” to characters like “Flo” and “Jake” promoting car insurance and even logos like the Adidas apparel three stripes and Nike’s coveted swish mark. Characters, slogans, and logos are the main elements of promotional IP but only a small part of the IP market. The great thing about America’s IP market system is owning the product and owning the promotion. Here in the US there are two federal offices which grant intellectual property rights. The US Copyright Office grants a copyright under specific circumstances. A grant of right allows you as the owner to protect your work from being copied and used without your permission. The US Patent and Trademark Office grants patents and trademarks under certain circumstances. Patents, Trademarks and Copyrights are the only types of intellectual property. Now it gets complicated, think of those Flo and Jake characters from your favorite car insurance ad they are people too! State laws in the United States of America grant publicity rights to individuals promoting products. You may be thinking this doesn’t make any sense and you are right it doesn’t make sense it makes cents. Literally every time your likeness is shown in association with a product or brand someone is making a royalty. Chang ching! As someone interested in owning lemons the cost of manufacturing and marketing can be steep if you don’t do your homework first. Building brand quality can take years whereas ideas are one in a million unlike those complicated combinations of slogans, logos, characters, products, and people.

Curtis Dawkins schreibt aus ungewöhnlicher Perspektive. Den Weg des Schriftstellers hatte er eingeschlagen, in namhaften Magazinen veröffentlicht, geheiratet, drei Kinder bekommen. Dann tötete er auf Crack einen Mann. Jetzt sitzt er lebenslänglich im Knast. Und dort schreibt er Literatur, die taumeln lässt. Zwischen Härte und Schönheit, zwischen Gut und Böse, zwischen Liebe und Hass. Dieses Buch ist die kraftvolle literarische Anverwandlung eines Schicksals, es erzählt von Männern hinter Gittern und ihren Versuchen, etwas von dem zurückzugewinnen, was unwiderruflich verloren ist. Es spricht von Freiheit, Liebe und Familie aus der Sicht derer, die ihr Recht darauf verwirkt haben. Curtis Dawkins findet dafür eine massive Sprache, einen Sound voller Sehnsucht, Humor und Tragik. Alle meine Freunde haben wen umgebracht wird so zu einem neuen und streitbaren Meisterwerk amerikanischen Erzählens.

Motion pictures are more than just entertainment. In film studies courses in colleges and universities worldwide, students and professors explore the social, political, technological and historical implications of cinema. This textbook provides two things: the history of film as an art form and an analysis of its impact on society and politics. Chapters are arranged chronologically, covering the major developments in film, like the advent of talkies or the French New Wave. Each era is examined in the context of several exemplary films commonly viewed in film studies courses. Thus students can watch Birth of a Nation and Intolerance while studying the innovations made by D.W. Griffith from 1910 to 1919. The scope is global, embracing the cinematic traditions of Asia, Latin America and Africa, as well as the ever important American and European output. Thoughtful articles from film scholars are included. The flexible structure of the text allows a variety of options for classroom use or personal study.

Ernest Clines Bestseller ›Ready Player One‹ ist DER Science-Fiction-Roman zur Virtual-Reality-Revolution und Vorlage für den großen Kinoblockbuster von Steven Spielberg. Im Jahr 2045 ist die Welt ein hässlicher Ort: Die Erdölvorräte sind aufgebraucht, ein Großteil der Bevölkerung lebt in Armut. Einziger Lichtblick ist die OASIS, eine virtuelle Ersatzwelt, in der man leben, arbeiten, zur Schule gehen und spielen kann. Die OASIS ist ein ganzes Universum, es gibt Tausende von Welten, von denen jede ebenso einzigartig wie phantasievoll ist. Und sie hat ein Geheimnis. Der exzentrische Schöpfer der OASIS hat tief im virtuellen Code einen Schatz vergraben, und wer ihn findet, wird seinen gesamten Besitz erben – zweihundertvierzig Milliarden Dollar. Eine Reihe von Rätseln weist den Weg, doch der Haken ist: Niemand weiß, wo die Fährte beginnt. Bis Wade Watts, ein ganz normaler Junge, der am Stadtrand von Oklahoma City in einem Wohnwagen lebt, den ersten wirklich brauchbaren Hinweis findet. Die Jagd ist eröffnet ... »›Ready Player One‹ ist absolut fantastisch – ein großer Spaß für den Geek in mir. Ich hatte das Gefühl, als sei das Buch nur für mich geschrieben worden.« Patrick Rothfuss

England im Jahr 1520: Das Königreich ist nur einen Pulsschlag von der Katastrophe entfernt. Sollte der König ohne männlichen Erben sterben, würde das Land durch einen Bürgerkrieg verwüstet. Henry VIII. möchte seine Ehe annullieren lassen und Anne Boleyn heiraten. Der Papst und ganz Europa sind dagegen. Die Scheidungsabsichten des Königs schaffen ein Machtvakuum, in das Thomas Cromwell tritt: Die Werkzeuge dieses politischen Genies sind Bestechung, Einschüchterung und Charme. Aus der Asche persönlichen Unglücks steigt er auf und bahnt sich seinen Weg durch die Fallstricke des Hofes, an dem »der Mensch des Menschen Wolf« ist. Hilary Mantel hat mit ›Wölfe‹ etwas sehr Rares geschaffen: einen wahrhaft großen Roman, der seinem historischen Gewand zum Trotz höchst zeitgemäß ist. Auf einzigartige Weise erforscht er die Choreografie der Macht. »Hieb- und stichfest ausgedacht und doch voll schauriger Anklänge, stellenweise auch sehr witzig – sobald der Leser dieses 780-Seiten-Buch fertig gelesen hat, will er mehr.« The Guardian
