American Legends: The Life of Cary Grant , Hörb...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Movie stars are revered for their ability to captivate audiences, and perhaps no actor has done it as well as Cary Grant, the epitome of the suave, debonair actor who may have been rivaled only by dancer extraordinaire Fred Astaire. Grant offered a version of the male actor that stood in stark contrast with the gangster heroes and hard-boiled film noir detectives that populated the screen throughout his career. Impeccably groomed and always clad in dapper attire, Grant possessed a magnetism that was undeniably attractive, all while managing to come across as well-heeled and socially respectable. As a result, there was an archetypal quality to Cary Grant that endeared him to both male and female viewers. After all, he was able to star in major movies well into his 60s, and even after he retired, Grant never lost his charm and continued to maintain a universal appeal that has almost never been rivaled. The progression from Grant's youth to his glamorous adult life was a complex transformation of its own, and it is a Hollywood rags-to-riches story of its own. At the same time, Grant's rise to stardom was due to an intricate web of factors, including his own natural acting ability, developments in the motion picture industry, and the fortuitous opportunity to consistently work with gifted directors who molded his image. Like nearly every big star, Grant was an exceptionally gifted actor and someone who benefited from a fortunate string of career opportunities that he took advantage of to full effect. American Legends: The Life of Cary Grant examines the life and career of Hollywood's most iconic leading man. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Eastman.

Some moments can change your life forever. Have you ever wondered, what if...? A man is walking down a country lane. A woman, cycling towards him, swerves to avoid a dog. On that moment, their future hinges. There are three possible outcomes, three small decisions that could determine the rest of their life. Eva and Jim are 19 and students at Cambridge when their paths first cross in 1958. And then there is David, Eva's then lover, an ambitious actor who loves Eva deeply. The Versions of Us follows the three different courses their lives could take following this first meeting. Lives filled with love, betrayal, ambition but through it all is a deep connection that endures whatever fate might throw at them. The Versions of Us explores the idea that there are moments when our lives might have turned out differently, the tiny factors or decisions that could determine our fate, and the precarious nature of the foundations upon which we build our lives. It is also a story about the nature of love and how it grows, changes and evolves as we go through the vagaries of life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Clare Corbett, Daniel Weyman.

Family Business on the Couch
30,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The most intractable family business issues are not the business problems the organization faces, but the emotional issues that compound them. Family Business on the Couch: A Psychological Perspective presents a new understanding and a broader perspective on the human dynamics of family firms with two complementary frameworks, psychodynamic and family systematic, to help make sense of family-run organizations. Although this book includes a conceptual section, it is first and foremost a practical book about the real-world issues faced by family businesses."Effectively peels back the surface of family businesses to explore the impact of individual personality and interpersonal relationships - powerful but easily ignored factors in the world of private enterprise." --Andreas Sohmen-Pao, Chief Executive Officer, BW Shipping "Groundbreaking and holistic view that gives a family business soul while explaining irrationalities in a rational way." --Mr Chavalit Tsao, Chairman IMC Group, Singapore "Family business is a topic of considerable importance to my firm because we are a family business as are many of our most important clients. The book's focus on both individual and family psychology offers new insights into the positive and negative influences that family relationships bring to the supposedly rational business world." --Raymond J. Baer, Chairman of the Board, Julius Baer Holding Ltd "Fascinating read. I believe very strongly in the statement that 'too many people take a rational actor approach' when it comes to family controlled businesses (FCB). There are limits to logical decision making and we need to explore those. FCB are therefore essentially more human than publicly owned companies and it is only appropriate that we should apply psychological theories of human mental phenomena and behaviour, to understand them better." --André Hoffmann, Non Executive Vice Chairman - Board of Directors, Roche Group Ltd ---------------------------------

Is Turkey a Bridge or a Threat?
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Particularly the last decade has seen Turkey becoming a prominent international actor in the Middle East. It likes to see itself as a conflict-manager and speaks of a zero problem toward neighbours foreign policy. This book attempts to understand Turkey's foreign policy, and the nature of the Turkish-Iranian relations. The central question of the book is whether Turkey is perceived to be a bridge or a threat by the European Union, the United States and the Arab world, and why. In analysing this question, particular attention is paid to the Turkey-Iran relations, due to the relevance of Iran in Middle East politics. Many factors influence the perspectives of these actors, and they fail to come to a consensus. Throughout the book, the appropriate historical context is provided for the best understanding of all the issues under discussion. This work will greatly extend your knowledge of Turkey's foreign policy and will give insights as to what the near future will be bringing.
