The Prince George Diaries is a new comedy about the Royal Family told from the inside out. Great diarists have changed the course of history, charted the swell of revolutions, the rise and fall of empires through the power of their pens. But for the first time ever, the gimlet eye of a tiny literary colossus - small in stature but mighty in influence - unlocks the closely guarded secrets of the British monarchy. How? He's one of them. The Prince George Diaries is a no-holds-barred exclusive never-before-seen fly-on-the-wall, behind the scenes rollercoaster expos written from the inside. From David Cameron's weekly meetings with the Queen ('I've given up bread, Ma'am - can you tell?') Princess Anne's terrifyingly combative party game tactics ('Who's got the cojones to take me on?') to Prince Harry's lessons on family history ('Did you know Great Grandpop's first pet was a dinosaur and that he invented fire?') - it is all here. And much, much more. But George's position as the world's most influential baby is suddenly under threat, following the shocking news that he's going to have a sibling. He knows how to be a media superstar. He doesn't know how to be a brother. What will the future hold now an imposter looms large on the horizon...?
During the American Revolution, Peter Clinch was one of many Loyalists who were asked to settle in Canada near the colonial boarder to claim land the new colonies wanted. Peter landed with forty men, all Royal Fencible Americans, in November, with awful tides, cold weather and timber so thick you could not walk a straight line. The place was at Magagusdavic Bay which is near St. George.
When my Habilitation (the tenure research document for my professorship) was published for the first time by StudienVerlag in 2003, I did not expect that a scientific study such as this would reach such a large readership in the Germ- speaking world. However, public discussion at that time was coincidentally focused on the structural break within the music industry, culminating in a controversial debate about the causes and consequences of that revolution. While I did not intend to address the current discussion regarding the development of the music industry, it nonetheless appeared to be the right time to publish such a book. Timing, in other words, matters! The unexpected acceptance of my book by the Austrian and German readership inspired me to consider publishing it in English as well. The book provides an explanation for the emergence of innovation and creativity in the music industry by retelling and interpreting its history, from Thomas Alva Edison's invention of the phonograph in 1877 to the latest innovations such as MP3-files and iPods. The global nature of this history causes me to believe that this book is going to be of interest to an international readership as well. My hope is that this translation will be received with the same level of warmth and generosity that the publication of the German original enjoyed.
