In The Medieval Islamic Republic of Letters: Arabic Knowledge Construction, Muhsin J. al-Musawi offers a groundbreaking study of literary heritage in the medieval and premodern Islamic period. Al-Musawi challenges the paradigm that considers the period from the fall of Baghdad in 1258 to the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in 1919 as an "Age of Decay" followed by an "Awakening" (al-nahdah). His sweeping synthesis debunks this view by carefully documenting a "republic of letters" in the Islamic Near East and South Asia that was vibrant and dynamic, one varying considerably from the generally accepted image of a centuries-long period of intellectual and literary stagnation. Al-Musawi argues that the massive cultural production of the period was not a random enterprise: instead, it arose due to an emerging and growing body of readers across Islamic lands who needed compendiums, lexicons, and commentaries to engage with scholars and writers. Scholars, too, developed their own networks to respond to each other and to their readers. Rather than addressing only the elite, this culture industry supported a common readership that enlarged the creative space and audience for prose and poetry in standard and colloquial Arabic. Works by craftsmen, artisans, and women appeared side by side with those by distinguished scholars and poets. Through careful exploration of these networks, The Medieval Islamic Republic of Letters makes use of relevant theoretical frameworks to situate this culture in the ongoing discussion of non-Islamic and European efforts. Thorough, theoretically rigorous, and nuanced, al-Musawi's book is an original contribution to a range of fields in Arabic and Islamic cultural history of the twelfth to eighteenth centuries.

"Atlantis: Cherished Gem" is the sequel to "Atlantis: Precious Stone" and is the chronicle of events which occur following the destruction of Atlantis and AurL's withdrawal of the Projection. The Atlanteans, who had hoped to regain the Formative World of Yetzirah on board the magical Mnemonotron, regain stunned consciousness to find themselves dwelling within the submerged Lens that they had programmed during the Projection, there discovering that their Magnum Opus for Atlantis is destined to continue upon Assiyatic Terra in the coming epochs. To the dismay of Lynci, Tym, and their Diamond Classmates, they learn that dissension prevails among the Adepts and Aspirants at the Temple of Avalyn while Satyron and his minions remain evilly active at the Iridium Fountain and elsewhere in the Material World. The loyal Initiates are required therefore to employ their magical skills diligently in the endeavor to manifest AurL's design for Terra despite intense opposition from his opponents.

In most OECD countries, public organizations have made first experiences with quality management, performance measurement and innovations. So far, however, little efforts have been made to assess the result of these pilot projects. This book tries to address this issue in a customer-oriented way. It is the result of the 4th International Speyer Workshop at the Research Institute of Public Administration in 1994. The first part of the volume gives a comprehensive survey of new developments in quality management and performance measurement in the British, Belgian, Austrian, Finnish and German public administration. The second part focuses on the role of innovations in the public sector. Experts from Canada report the findings of empirical research about the impetus and obstacles to innovations. Other papers discuss the diffusion of administrative innovations and organizational learning in the case of IT innovations.

Readers often find Beckett's fiction forbidding because he abandons conventional methods and introduces new formal devices. In Innovation in Samuel Beckett's Fiction Rubin Rabinovitz, a pre-eminent Beckett scholar, provides comprehensive descriptions of those devices, explains how they are used, and clarifies how they contribute to Beckett's underlying ideas. As an example, Rabinovitz points out that more than 1,000 significant elements recur in Beckett's trilogy of novels, Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable. These emphasize elusive ideas, such as the mysterious affinities of thought linking the protagonists in these works or suggestions that different characters represent aspects of a single embryonic persona who is never explicitly described. Rabinovitz also discusses Beckett's use of narrative, chronology, setting, characterization, allusions, mythic parallels, and figurative language.
