A gathering of brilliant and viciously funny recollections from one of the twentieth century’s most famous literary enfants terribles. Written in 1980 but published here for the first time, these texts tell the story of the various farces that developed around the literary prizes Thomas Bernhard received in his lifetime. Whether it was the Bremen Literature Prize, the Grillparzer Prize, or the Austrian State Prize, his participation in the acceptance ceremony—always less than gracious, it must be said—resulted in scandal (only at the awarding of the prize from Austria’s Federal Chamber of Commerce did Bernhard feel at home: he received that one, he said, in recognition of the great example he set for shopkeeping apprentices). And the remuneration connected with the prizes presented him with opportunities for adventure—of the new-house and luxury-car variety. Here is a portrait of the writer as a prizewinner: laconic, sardonic, and shaking his head with biting amusement at the world and at himself. A revelatory work of dazzling comedy, the pinnacle of Bernhardian art.

"Publicada en 1975, Correción es muy probablemente la suma y culminación de la obra de Thomas Bernhard (1931-1989). Tras el suicidio de su amigo Roithamer, el anónimo narrador de la novela llega a la casa del taxidermista Höller, en cuya buhardilla el suicida ha permanecido durante seis años entregado a la tarea de planear y construir, en el centro geométrico exacto del bosque de Kobernauss, un Cono que, desafiando las leyes de la construcción tradicional, estaba destinado a ser residencia y “felicidad suprema” de su hermana. Urdida en torno a un proceso obsesivo de creación y destrucción que se plasma en un afán de constante correción, la novela es una reflexión sobre los problemas del hombre contemporáneo, enfrentado a la deshumanización, el desamor y la soledad,"--back cover.

Australia refuses to allow 'Tampa's' asylum-seekers into the country and terrorists attack New York... An Australian bank manager is retrenched. Removed from his position of authority above the town's main intersection, he contemplates his cautious existence, his personal, expedient reality. His mind is disintegrating... In a series of episodic recollections, before the past catches up with him, he reveals his relationships with his family - with his parents, and his criminal brother. He recounts his acrimonious debate with the local Presbyterian Minister, and examines the state of his conscience after reassessing the part he played in the death of his sister's first husband. He stays in touch with the world beyond Australia through the songs of Bob Dylan. But as that world darkens and is consumed by terror, the bank manager plans his own response to the terror within... 'Accounting for Terror' is the first novel in 'The Terror Trilogy' and is followed by 'Guantanamo Bay' and 'A Captain of Souls'.

An annual prize is awarded for the best paper appearing in Accounting Education: an international journal, and this book contains the prize-winning papers for every year from 1992 to 2012. The journal’s primary mission since the first issue was published in March 1992 has been to enhance the educational base of accounting practice, and all the papers in this book relate to that mission. These papers, reporting on research studies undertaken by accounting education scholars from around the world, build on research findings from the broader domain of education scholarship and embrace a wide array of topics – including: curriculum development, pedagogic innovation, improving the quality of learning, and assessing learning outcomes. Of particular interest are three themes, each of which runs through several of the papers: students’ approaches to learning and learning style preferences; ethics and moral intensity; and innovation within the accounting curriculum. Accounting educators will find many ideas in the book to help them in enriching their work, and accounting education researchers will be able to identify many points of departure for extending the studies on which the papers report – whether comparatively or longitudinally. This book is a compilation of papers originally published in Accounting Education: an international journal.
