Recent years have seen a surge of interest in the workings of financial institutions and financial markets beyond the discipline of economics, which has been accelerated by the financial crisis of the early twenty-first century. The Oxford Handbook of the Sociology of Finance brings together twenty-nine chapters, written by scholars of international repute from Europe, North America, and Asia, to provide comprehensive coverage on a variety of topics relatedto the role of finance in a globalized world, and its historical development. Topics include global institutions of modern finance, types of actors involved in financial transactions and supporting technologies, mortgage markets, rating agencies, and the role of financial economics. Particular attention is given to financial crises, which are discussed in a special section, as well as to alternative forms of finance, including Islamic finance and the rise of China. The Handbook will be an indispensable tool for academics, researchers, and students of contemporary financeand economic sociology, and will serve as a reference point for the expanding international community of scholars researching these areas from a broadly-defined sociological perspective.
Edith was born into a different world. But her rebellious nature brought her to the seedy glamour of the music hall, where she plays the piano by night. Oliver is an illusionist of moderate repute. But he is a man of ambition. He wants to tour the world, to pioneer groundbreaking illusions. History and fate have other ideas. When Edith and Oliver meet, they fall headlong in love. But their children arrive as the world begins to change, as cinemas crowd the high street and the draw of the music hall wanes. What follows is a struggle: against the entropy of marriage, against the march of time, and against Oliver's flaws - flaws that may cost them everything. Read by Owen Roe. 1. Language: English.

Former classics professor Bertrand McAbee, now turned private investigator, has a history of unwarily stepping into nasty cases. This is one of those as he comes up against a former Marine, Alex Love, who is two things at once: an expert sniper and supposedly dead. In the intervening years since the Gulf War, Love has been addicted to assassinating individuals of ill-repute. As if fate had ordained it, these two very unlike men, McAbee and Love, meet in a contest where justice and revenge stand in opposition. Only one can survive. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott R.

A moving Yorkshire saga, The Windfell Family Secrets is the much anticipated follow-up to Diane Allen's The Mistress of Windfell Manor. Twenty-one years have passed since Charlotte Booth fought to keep Ferndale Mill and her home at Windfell Manor following her traumatic first marriage. Now, highly regarded in local society and happily married to her childhood sweetheart, Archie Atkinson, she seeks only the best for their children, Isabelle and Danny. But history has a habit of repeating itself, and Danny's head is turned by a local girl of ill repute, despite his promise of marriage to the far more respectable Harriet Armstrong. Meanwhile the beautiful and secretive Isabelle shares all the traits of her biological father, the notorious Joseph Dawson. And when she announces that she is to marry John Sidgwick, the owner of High Mill in Skipton, her mother quickly warns her against him. He's an ex-drinking mate of her late father who faces bankruptcy, and Charlotte fears his interest in Isabelle is founded more upon self-preservation than any notions of love. What she doesn't realise is how far he's willing to go to protect his future.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anne Dover.

Just before and at the beginning of the US Civil War, Indian territory was an untamed lawless place filled with Indians, outlaws teamsters, farms, towns folks, and houses of ill repute. The five civilized tribes were slaveholders, but were radically different than their white counterparts. There were strict laws concerning the abuse of slaves and after seven years of servitude the slave was given his or her freedom and given the choice of being adopted by the tribe. When hostilities broke out between the North and the South the Indians joined the Confederacy and fought in the Battle of Elkhorn Tavern at Pea Ridge, Arkansas. My family built and owned Elkhorn Tavern until the State of Arkansas bought it at "fair market value" and donated it to the US Parks Department. I do not consider this work of historical fiction to be a war book, though set in the Civil War era. It is more about the people that lived in those times and their way of life. 1. Language: English.
