    Bashan and I is the moving story of Thomas Mann's relationship with his spirited German short-haired pointer. From their first encounter at a local farm, Mann reveals how he slowly grows to love this energetic, loyal, and intelligent animal. Taking daily walks in the nearby parkland, Mann begins to understand and appreciate Bashan as a living being, witnessing his native delight in chasing rabbits, deer, and squirrels along with his careful investigations of stones, fallen branches, and clumps of wet leaves. As their bond deepens, Mann is led to contemplate Bashan's inner life, and marvels at the ease with which his dog trusts him, completely putting his life into his master's hands.Over time, the two develop a deep mutual understanding, but for Mann, there is always a sense of loss at never being able to enter the private world of his dear friend, and he slowly becomes conscious of the eternal divide between mankind and the rest of nature. Nonetheless, the unique relationship quietly moves to the forefront of Mann's life, and when master and companion are briefly separated, Mann is taken aback by the depth of his loneliness without his dog. It is this deep affection for another living creature that helps the writer to reach a newfound understanding of the nature of love, in all its complexity.First published in 1916 and translated into English in 1923, Bashan and I was heralded for its simple telling of how a dog became a priceless companion, an animal who brought meaning to the author's life.

    A new translation of the classic by Thomas Mann is the latest addition to the Everyman's Library canon. Nobel Prize winner, Thomas Mann regarded his monumental retelling of the biblical story of Joseph as his magnum opus. Conceived of four parts, this unified narrative is a 'mythological novel' of Joseph's fall into slavery and his rise to be lord over Egypt. The result is a amalgamation of humor, emotion, psychological insight and epic grandeur. John E. Woods presents readers with the definitive translation of the modernists master's sublime masterpiece.

    Die Abfallentsorgung ist zu einem der zentralsten Problemeder modernen Industriegesellschaft geworden. Eine Reform desbestehenden Abfallrechts soll dieses Problem bew{ltigenhelfen. Die hier vorliegende interdisziplin{re Untersuchungbesch{ftigt sich haupts{chlich mit der Frage,ob dieVorrangklausel des geltenden Bundesabfallgesetzes alstaugliche Grundlage f}r die Bew{ltigung des Abfallproblemesgelten kann. Dazu wird derGesetzestext einer umfassendenjuristischen Interpretation unterzogen; es findet einerealit{tsnahe Analyse der relevanten technischen, volks- undbetriebswirtschaftlichen Aspekte statt.Die im Abfallgesetz enthaltene Vorrangklausel derAbfallverwertung stellt danach bei korrekter Auslegung derMerkmale "technisch m|glich", "Mehrkosten", "Zumutbarkeit","Vorhandensein oder Schaffung eines Marktes" einenausgewogenen Kompromi~ zwischen |konomischen und|kologischen Sachzw{ngen dar.F}r aktuelle Reform}berlegungen, namentlich auch f}r denk}rzlich vorgelegten Referentenentwurf desUmweltministeriums, gilt diesbez}glich vor demHintergrund: "If it is not necessary to change the law, itis necessary not to change" (so das Fazit in Anlehnung andie englische Gesetzgebungstradition).
