New spies with new loyalties, old spies with old ones; terror as the new mantra; decent people wanting to do good, but caught in the moral maze; all the sound, rational reasons for doing the inhuman thing; the recognition that we cannot safely love, or pity, and remain good "patriots"--This is the fabric of John le Carré's fiercely compelling and current novel A Most Wanted Man. A half-starved young Russian man in a long black overcoat is smuggled into Hamburg at dead of night. He has an improbable amount of cash secreted in a purse around his neck. He is a devout Muslim. Or is he? He says his name is Issa. Annabel, an idealistic young German civil rights lawyer, determines to save Issa from deportation. Soon her client's survival becomes more important to her than her own career -- or safety. In pursuit of Issa's mysterious past, she confronts the incongruous Tommy Brue, the sixty-year-old scion of Brue Frères, a failing British bank based in Hamburg. Annabel, Issa and Brue form an unlikely alliance -- and a triangle of impossible love is born. Meanwhile, scenting a sure kill in the "War on Terror, " the rival spies of Germany, England and America converge upon the innocents.

Layers of loyalty in Latin panegyric, AD 289-307 by Roger Rees( Book )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Discussion of the potential and tension inherent in the culture of imperial praesentia introduces the study's main approach. In each of five substantial chapters, the date, place, and circumstances of delivery are considered in order to identify the challenges facing the orator. Close analysis of style and content reveals how diplomatic combinations of established and original literary tropes, treatise recommendations, figured expressions of imperial relationships, and adaptations of contemporary numismatic and artistic iconography articulate very specific ambitions and agenda. The orators are shown to be sophisticated, informed, and confident: their speeches are encoded expressions of local preoccupations."--Jacket
