The Balloon Hoax was first published in The Sun newspaper in New York in 1844. Originally presented as a true story, it detailed European Monck Mason´s trip across the Atlantic Ocean in only three days in a hot air balloon. The story turned out to be a hoax and the paper published a retraction two days later (rumoured to also have been written by Poe himself) admitting the deception.The story ignited a fever of excitement in New York: Poe himself claimed that the Sun building was ´´besieged´´ by people wanting copies of the newspaper. ´´I never witnessed more intense excitement to get possession of a newspaper,´´ he wrote. The furore around the story is a testimony to Poe´s ability to build up a narrative with such plausible details, that it appears almost inconceivable that it should not be the truth. 1.

The time: 1931. The place: the golf links at Krewe Island off Savannah´s windswept Atlantic shore. The event: a once-in-a-lifetime 36-hole match...in which the stakes are higher than anyone imagined. In Steven Pressfield´s richly imagined, vividly detailed story, golf legends Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen are joined by a local unsung opponent, the troubled war hero Rannulph Junah. Played above raging Atlantic surf and under gathering storm clouds, their match is thrilling competition. But the key to the outcome lies with Bagger Vance, a caddie who carries the secret of the Authentic Swing. His mysterious powers guide the play and leave a lasting imprint on the lives he touches that day and in years to come. A sports fable worthy of comparison to The Natural, The Legend of Bagger Vance reveals that, in life as well as golf, the real battle is not with outside opponents but with oneself. 1.

Political discourse in Mexico includes a detailed discursive analysis of the discourse of President Salinas de Gortari (1988-1994) and that of the Ejercito Zapatista de Liberacion Nacional (EZLN). The Zapatista movement broke into rebellion on January 1, 1994, on the very day that the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was implemented. The EZLN struggle can be considered a local response to the global policy shift of the Mexican government. This study assumed that these political narratives played a strategic role in a struggle to gain hegemonic acceptance in Mexico for the respective national projects which each side envisioned. Therefore, this volume presents the design of a theoretical-methodological framework which integrates a Gramscian view on hegemony with discourse theory and two main directions in critical discourse analysis. It presents the historical context, evaluates existing interpretations of the EZLN movement and defines the main stakes in the struggle. While Salinas seeks to establish republican nationalism and a liberal democracy, the EZLN struggles for ethnic nationalism and radical democrcacy.
In the aftermath of the last financial crisis, on both sides of the Atlantic banking supervisors were given new supervisory and enforcement powers, which are often of a substantially punitive-criminal nature. In Europe in particular, the establishment of the Single Supervisory Mechanism within the European Central Bank substantially increased centralised investigatory and sanctioning powers. This major innovation, together with the development of forms of real-time monitoring of banking (often digital) records, challenges traditional banking criminal investigations in their national-based and analogue dimension. The book offers a comprehensive account and perspective analysis of the interactions between the criminal and administrative nature of such new powers, highlighting their ´´punitive´´ overall nature and their impact on fundamental rights. Covering both the US and the EU regulatory frameworks, it presents unprecedented, trans-systemic research between criminal law and procedure, and between regulatory and administrative law, at the international, European and national level. The book also includes a rich and detailed selection of case law from the US and the European supreme courts, with a specific focus on CJEU and ECtHR decisions.
