Im cold and hungry. Our trees are dead. Animals and birds froze to death. That was part of a 1709 entry in young Magdalenas diary. From her loft bed, she overheard her father below. Dearest Susannah, we have to go. Well starve here! We have to sell our land and sell the only cow and horse we still have. Mami was crying softly. Dawdi continued, Our plows, tools, and spinning wheel will fetch some money, too. Then we can pay the princes departure tax and get a boat to Rotterdam. The historically cold winter had devastated not only their small farm near the Rhine River but a large area of Europe as well. Magdalenas peasant family embarked with many others on a decades-long trek to England, the Hudson River Valley, the Mohawk River Valley, the Susquehanna River, and Pennsylvania. They interacted with people of other cultures, including Mohawks. At times, Magdalenas sorrows and hardships seemed insurmountable, but she never lost hope of someday having her own family and farm. Did she realize her dream? Magdalena is based on factual evidence in the lives of Germanic immigrants who left their farms in 1709. Magdalenas friend Conrad Weiser was a historic figure who became a famous Indian interpreter, having lived a year with a Mohawk family.

This volume examines the evolution of Central European product liability systems, with particular reference to the effect of the implementation of the Product Liability Directive in the context of the recent enlargement of the EU. This book also provides a comparison of how product liability law has evolved in the socialist states, comparing it to developments taking place in the West. Using product liability law, this study offers a valuable insight into the necessary features and requirements of the harmonization of laws between the EU and post-socialist Europe. Predominantly legal in scope, it also takes account of the importance of extra-legal elements in law reform. As such, this book will be a valuable resource for those interested in European Law, as well as those working in the area of Consumer and Product Liability law.

The Plant Messiah
Author: Carlos Magdalena
An impassioned memoir of saving extraordinary plants on the brink of extinction, by a scientist who has been called a "codebreaker" (Telegraph) and "an inspiration" (Jane Goodall) Carlos Magdalena is not your average horticulturist. He's a man on a mission to save the world's most endangered plants. First captivated by the flora of his native Spain, he has travelled to the remotest parts of the globe in search of exotic species. Renowned for his pioneering work, he has committed his life to protecting plants from man-made ecological destruction and thieves hunting for wealthy collectors. In The Plant Messiah, Magdalena takes readers from the Amazon to the jungles of Mauritius to deep within the Australian Outback in search of the rare and the vulnerable. Back in the lab, we watch as he develops groundbreaking, left-field techniques for rescuing species from extinction, encouraging them to propagate and thrive once again. Along the way, he offers moving, heartfelt stories about the secrets contained within these incredible organisms. Passionate and absorbing, The Plant Messiah is a tribute to the diversity of life on our planet, and the importance of preserving it. *Featuring 16 pages of color photos*

Magdalena Sinkovec compiled a unique international cookbook from the contributions of ethnic recipes prepared by ladies, mostly present and former Ambassadresses, one Ambassador, one former First Lady and a friend, from the now 26 NATO nations to celebrate the 2004 NATO enlargement with Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. Politics and cuisine are not far apart. There is food for thought, things are either on the front or the back burner, texts are watered down, crises are simmering, there are half-baked theories, situations turn sour, things are cooked up and eventually they boil down. And this cookbook represents both a melting pot of great culinary tradition as well as a treasure of cultural diversity, something that adds tremendously to the strength and vitality of NATO. The foreword is contributed by the wife of the NATO Secretary General.
