Time is a resource. Everyone knows it has to be managed. You mess with it at your peril. You can let it move fast or slowly but what you mustn´t do is allow it to stop. On the Discworld time management is the job of the Monks of History, who store it and pump it from the places where it´s wasted (like the underwater - how much time does a codfish need?) to places like cities, where there´s never enough time. But the construction of the world´s first truly accurate clock starts a race against, well, time for Lu Tze and his apprentice Lobsang Ludd. Because it will stop time. And when time stands still, everything stops with it. Then, there really is no future.
Was there a beginning of time? Could time run backwards? Is the universe infinite or does it have boundaries? These are just some of the questions considered in the internationally acclaimed masterpiece by the world renowned physicist - generally considered to have been one of the world´s greatest thinkers. It begins by reviewing the great theories of the cosmos from Newton to Einstein, before delving into the secrets which still lie at the heart of space and time, from the Big Bang to black holes, via spiral galaxies and strong theory. To this day A Brief History of Time remains a staple of the scientific canon, and its succinct and clear language continues to introduce millions to the universe and its wonders. This new edition includes recent updates from Stephen Hawking with his latest thoughts about the No Boundary Proposal and offers new information about dark energy, the information paradox, eternal inflation, the microwave background radiation observations, and the discovery of gravitational waves. It was published in tandem with the app, Stephen Hawking´s Pocket Universe .
A stark and honest memoir of thirty-five years spent in Canada?s prison system. Born and raised in Toronto?s Regent Park, Edward Hertrich left high school in grade eleven to start working. A year later, he started dealing drugs in earnest, beginning a criminal career that resulted in him being incarcerated for thirty-five of his next forty years. In Wasted Time, Hertrich describes his time behind bars. Once considered a serious threat to public safety, he spent much of his time at Millhaven Institution, a maximum-security prison that housed four hundred of Canada?s most dangerous inmates, including murderers, bank robbers, and gang members, as well as ? for most of his stay there ? a gang of sadistic guards.
´´Endearing, exciting, and very clever, Danielle Rollins´ Stolen Time is the kind of time-travel story I´m always on the lookout for.

But after meeting a stranger and stowing away on his peculiar aircraft, she wakes up in a chilling version of the world she left behind—and for the first time in her life, realizes she´s in way over her head.

Killing Times begins with the deceptively simple observation?made by Jacques Derrida in his seminars on the topic?that the death penalty mechanically interrupts mortal time by pre-empting the typical mortal experience of not knowing at what precise moment we will die. Through a broader examination of what constitutes mortal temporality, David Wills proposes that the so-called machinery of death summoned by the death penalty works by exploiting, or perverting, the prosthetic machinery of time that already regulates human existence. Killing Times traces the logic of the death penalty across a range of sites. Starting with the struggles of American courts to articulate what methods of execution constitute ?cruel and unusual punishment,? Wills goes on to show the ways that technologies of death have themselves evolved in conjunction with fraught ideas of cruelty and instantaneity, from the guillotine through today?s lethal injections?and beyond the justice system to the opposed but linked practices of suicide bombing and drone warfare. Grounded in a deep ethical and political commitment to death penalty abolition, Wills?s engaging and powerfully argued book pushes the question of capital punishment beyond the confines of legal arguments to show how the technology of capital punishment defines and appropriates the instant of death and reconfigures the whole of human mortality.

The distinguished poet, essayist and critic D. J. Enright died on the last day of December 2002. He had just put the finishing touches to Injury Time , a memoir and his third commonplace book in which the dying writer muses upon his own condition and that of the world he knows he is leaving. Comparing himself to the Chinese scholar Sima Qian, who chose an ´ignoble punishment´ (in Dennis Enright´s case, treatment for his cancer; in Qian´s, castration) over respectable death in order to finish a book, he contemplates literature, manners, morals, people and, especially, the English language in all its glories and eccentricities - while recording his battle against cancer and his hospital experiences. Moving, and at times deeply poignant, imbued with its author´s legendary humanity and wit, Injury Time is, nevertheless, funny, bracing and, above all, positive.
