The Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold
9,99 € *

´Bill Bryson on two wheels´ Independent Scaling a new peak of rash over-ambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000km route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off at the Arctic winter´s brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively sub-zero desolation of snowbound Finland. Haunted throughout the journey by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream, and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension. After three months, 20 countries and a 58-degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older.

The hCG Diet
17,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

You want to lose weight in the ´´problem areas´´ stomach, arms, and hips and keep your desired weight permanently? Since more than 50 years the hCG Diet makes exactly this possible. Until now this way of weight loss was reserved for the rich and famous because this lavish course of treatment with the endogenous substance hCG was, and still is, very expensive. Nowadays, homeopathic or hormone-free, bio-energized drops exist which are a less expensive, but just as effective alternative. Detailed explanations for the day-to-day course of the diet, delicious recipes, practical shopping lists, and helpful tips make the hCG Diet suitable for men and women in their everyday life.

High Heels und Hühnerfüße
14,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Egal ob als kurzer Stop-over oder als temporäre Heimat für Expats: Singapur fasziniert, zumal, wenn man auch einen Blick hinter die Spiegelfassaden der Shoppingmalls wirft. Diese informative und unterhaltsame Gebrauchsanweisung liefert Wissenswertes, weniger zu touristischen Highlights, als zum kuriosen Alltag der Singapurer zwischen Tradition und Moderne, Ahnenkult und Fortschrittsglauben, Konsumrausch und Spiritualität - zu einer Nation, die es dank der eisernen Hand ihrer Regierung, viersprachiger Verbotsschilder und Mückenpolizei in kürzester Zeit von einem Malaria-Sumpf zu einem der fortschrittlichsten Länder der Welt gebracht hat. Lernen Sie die Mentalität von Singapurern und Expats verstehen, die die Autorin mit ihrem Insider-Wissen aus zwei Jahren persönlicher Erfahrung augenzwinkernd analysiert. Begegnen Sie einer so vielfältigen wie gegensätzlichen Metropole, in deren Hawker Centern Asiatinnen in straßbesetzten High Heels an Hühnerfüßen knabbern, um ihren Teint aufzufrischen. Tauchen Sie ein in eine Stadt, in der die Menschen innerhalb weniger Wochen das muslimische Zuckerfest, Weihnachten, das hinduistische Thaipusam und Chinese New Year feiern, sieben Tage die Woche rund um die Uhr shoppen, aber Kaugummi nur gegen Vorlage des amtlichen Lichtbildausweises erhältlich ist. Erfahren Sie, wie die Singapurer hungrige Geister verwöhnen, warum ein Nummernschild mit den Zahlen 2828 so begehrt ist, und was man hier mit einem Bikini aus Papier anfängt. This guide is a fact-based, tongue-in-cheek introduction to Singapore and its people from a European, German, personal point of view. It sheds a light on the mentality of Singaporeans - micro-managed and torn between shopping malls and superstition - as well as expats, just one species of many in this multi-ethnic metropolis, which is certainly one of the most diverse spots on this planet.

GO VISTA: Reiseführer Österreich
2,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Über das Reiseziel Österreich Wohin reisen die Deutschen am liebsten? Österreich ist das beliebteste Reiseziel der Deutschen seit dem Zweiten Weltkrieg. Hätten Sie das gedacht? In den 1950er Jahren entdeckten die Wirtschaftswunder-Bundesbürger das Land des Walzers und der Geigen, nach der Wiedervereinigung strömten riesige Kontingente aus den neuen Bundesländern in die Alpenrepublik. Ob Alt, Mittelalt oder Jung - für alle Generationen ist Österreich ein Sehnsuchtsziel. Denn es gibt zwar eine sprachliche Nähe, mental aber gehört das Volk der Österreicher schon zu den Südländern. Das macht die Sache reizvoll, denn da geht es schlamperter zu, ist man lockerer im Umgang mit der Zeit, gründelt nicht teutonisch tiefsinnig und hat eine Landschaftsvielfalt, die umwerfend ist. Von höchsten Alpengipfeln bis zu den drei tief eingekerbten Beckenlandschaften (Wiener, Grazer und Pannonisches Becken) sind sämtliche Panoramen vorhanden. Auch unter Österreichern kann Zugereisten nie langweilig werden. Zwischen Vorarlberger Bergbauern und dem im Schönbrunnerdeutsch näselnden Wiener Gschaftlhubern beträgt der Unterschied nicht nur rund 800 Kilometer. Die Österreicher bilden eine Nation, die nie ein Vasallenvolk war. Daher rührt ein gewisser historischer Dünkel, herrschten sie doch als Habsburger einst über beinahe 55 Millionen Menschen und fast den gesamten Balkan. Übrig geblieben ist ein Zwergstaat mit 8 Millionen Einwohnern, ein ´Melting Pot´, in dem sich als Erbe der Donau-Monarchie germanische, slawische und romanische Elemente munter vermischt haben. ´Dies Österreich ist eine kleine Welt, in der die große ihre Probe hält´, befand der deutsche Dichter Friedrich Hebbel. Und diese große Welt im Kleinen nimmt sich fürchterlich ernst. Das stärkt das Selbstbewusstsein und macht interessant. In der Selbstvermarktung macht den Österreichern niemand etwas vor. Sie leben vom Tourismus, sie bedienen ihn. Aber Gastfreundschaft ist ihnen auch ein elementares Bedürfnis. Dieses Land mit seinen Bergen und Seen, Wäldern und Weinhängen, großen Städten und versteckten Dörfern, mit Almabtrieb und Beisl, Fasnacht und Fiaker, Kaffeehaus und Kirtag (Kirchweih), Marterln (Bildstöcke) und Wintersport macht es denen, die es bereisen, leicht. Deshalb kommen so viele wieder, die Deutschen allen voran. Über den Go Vista Info Guide Österreich Nach der Chronik, die kurz und prägnant die wichtigsten Daten zur Geschichte liefert, wird Wien vorgestellt und danach im Kapitel VISTA POINTs die folgenden Städte und Regionen, mit Serviceadressen der Highlights und mit Hinweisen auf Restaurants, Cafés und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten: - Vorarlberg - Tirol - Salzburg - Kärnten - Steiermark - Oberösterreich - Niederösterreich - Burgenland Der Inhalt des Reiseführers kurz und knapp: - Top 10 des Reiseziels: Das müssen Sie gesehen haben - Chronik: Daten zur Landesgeschichte - Wien: Stadtrundgang und Serviceadressen - Vista Points: Alle Highlights der Reiseregion - Orte, Landschaften, Sehenswürdigkeiten mit den dazugehörigen Adressen für Sehenswürdigkeiten, Essen und Trinken, Nightlife, Kultur und Unterhaltung, Shopping und Erholung und Sport - Service: Reisepraktische Tipps von A bis Z - Sprachhilfen: Die wichtigsten Redewendungen für unterwegs - Karte: Ausfaltbare Landkarte mit Stadtplänen und Register - Hochwertige Klappenbroschur: Übersichtskarte des Reisegebietes mit den eingezeichneten Top 10 und farbig gekennzeichneten Regionen in der vorderen Klappe

Fashioning the Bourgeoisie: A History of Clothi...
51,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When department stores like Le Bon Marché first opened their doors in mid-nineteenth-century Paris, shoppers were offered more than racks of ready-made frock coats and crinolines. They were given the chance to acquire a lifestyle as well--that of the bourgeoisie. Wearing proper clothing encouraged proper behavior, went the prevailing belief. Available now for the first time in English, Fashioning the Bourgeoisie was one of the first extensive studies to explain a culture´s sociology through the seemingly simple issue of the choice of clothing. Philippe Perrot shows, through a delightful tour of the rise of the ready-made fashion industry in France, how clothing can not only reflect but also inculcate beliefs, values, and aspirations. By the middle of the century, men were prompted to disdain the decadent and gaudy colors of the pre-Revolutionary period and wear unrelievedly black frock coats suitable to the manly and serious world of commerce. Their wives and daughters, on the other hand, adorned themselves in bright colors and often uncomfortable and impractical laces and petticoats, to signal the status of their family. The consumer pastime of shopping was born, as women spent their spare hours keeping up their middle-class appearance, or creating one by judicious purchases. As Paris became the fashion capital and bourgeois modes of dress and their inherent attitudes became the ruling lifestyle of Western Europe and America, clothing and its ´´civilizing´´ tendencies were imported to non-Western colonies as well. In the face of what Perrot calls this ´´leveling process,´´ the upper classes tried to maintain their stature and right to elegance by supporting what became the high fashion industry. Richly detailed, entertaining, and provocative, Fashioning the Bourgeoisie reveals to us the sources of many of our contemporary rules of fashion and etiquette. Review: ... A fascinating and amusing examination of social attitudes. (The Times Literary Supplement) ... The overall thesis that emerges is both limpid and profound; as far as clothing is concerned, we still belong to the nineteenth century. (Liberation) ... [Perrot] glides through the dressing rooms and bedrooms of the Second Empire, inspects armoires, haunts the department stores and the fitting rooms of couturiers and tailors, lives with fashionable women and tarts, bankers, and 10-franc-a-month shop assistants. (Le Nouvel observateur) ... Perrot puts a serious and persuasive case for the importance of clothing to understanding the aesthetic and moral values of the nineteenth-century middle-class. . . . Immensely learned, yet written with great delicacy and lightness of touch, it remains the best account available of the meaning, and eventual triumph, of the bourgeois trouser--that most resilient and universal survival of nineteenth-century Europe´s dominance of the globe. John Adamson(Sunday Telegraph) ... A fascinating book: not so much a history of clothing, as a history of French society seen through its fashions and its clothes. Sharif Gemie(Modern Contemporary France) ... Fashion history is not about hemlines, it is about the nuts and bolts of living. It is because he accepts this fact that Perrot´s examination of a period so germane to our own is valuable. Colin McDowell(Sunday Times) Table of contents: List of Illustrations Preface Introduction 3 I Toward a History of Appearances 6 II Clothing´s Old and New Regimes 15 III The Vestimentary Landscape of the Nineteenth Century 26 IV Traditional Trades and the Rise of Ready-Made Clothing 36 V The Department Store and the Spread of Bourgeois Clothing 58 VI New Pretensions, New Distinctions 80 VII The Imperatives of Propriety 87 VIII Deviations from the Norm 124 IX Invisible Clothing 143 X The Circulation of Fashions 167 Conclusion 189 Notes 193 Bibliography 253 Index 267
