Back Cover CopyWhen you' re outgunned, when you' re outnumbered 100 to 1, you have two choices: innovate and improvise. Or die. Spies, Inc. is a lesson in entrepreneurship on the fly: succeeding when resources are scarce and failure is not an option.'Stacy Perman tells a mystery never told before--the story of the marriage of technological innovation and spycraft. It is this marriage that has made Israeli intelligence so distinctively unique, and it is written like a real thriller.' --AVNER COHEN, AUTHOR OF ISRAEL AND THE BOMB'Stacy Perman has done some first-rate research, uncovering and explaining the significant nexus between Israel' s military intelligence efforts and the high-tech innovation that has become a hallmark of the Israeli economy. There are valuable business lessons to be learned throughout these pages for organizations--be they companies or countries--hoping to build a high-tech base for their economies. Above all, there is superb drama in Spies, Inc. and plenty of insight into the inner workings of an engine for innovation.'--ROBERT SLATER, AUTHOR OF MICROSOFT REBOOTED: HOW BILL GATES AND STEVE BALLMER REINVENTED THEIR COMPANY AND JACK WELCH & THE G.E. WAY: MANAGEMENT INSIGHTS AND LEADERSHIP SECRETS OF THE LEGENDARY CEO'Spies, Inc. is both a compelling tale of high-tech espionage and an insightful business manual for the twenty-first century.

Hasta la muerte
11,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

En este libro se reúnen las que probablemente sean las dos mejores novelas cortas de Amos Oz, uno de los más relevantes escritores contemporáneos. En ellas, el autor explora el ambiente de odio e incomprensión en el que, a menudo, viven y mueren los integrantes de la comunidad judía. Amor tardío, que se desarrolla en el Israel actual, nos presenta a un profesor que, a pesar de haber conseguido vivir ignorando su deteriorado cuerpo, no puede sin embargo evitar sus visiones paranoicas sobre la destrucción de su pueblo a manos de la Unión Soviética. En Hasta la muerte, una partida de cruzados viaja hacia Jerusalén en 1096, sembrando la desolación a su paso. Pero muy pronto, la inicial sensación de victoria se irá diluyendo a medida que la enfermedad y las privaciones comiencen a hacer mella entre sus huestes. 'Elocuente, humano e incluso religioso, en el sentido más profundo del término, Oz se revela como una especie de Orwell judío: un hombre complejo empeñado en decir la verdad'.   Newsweek
