Book Description: Es ist Abscheu auf den ersten Blick, der Edward Feathers und Terry Veneering, die glänzendsten Juristen des British Empire, ein Leben lang verbindet. Als ebenbürtige Gegner in zahllosen Prozessen hassen sie einander schon, bevor sie sich beide in dieselbe Frau verlieben. Und es wird ein Leben lang dauern, bis sie bemerken, dass sie ebenso gut Freunde sein könnten. Was hat Feathers’ Frau Betty so angezogen an Veneering, dem Mann mit dem weißblonden Haar, der selbst mit der schönsten Frau Hongkongs verheiratet ist? Worum beneiden die erbitterten Feinde sich mit solcher Intensität? Mit weiser Gelassenheit erzählt Jane Gardam, eine der bekanntesten Schriftstellerinnen in England, von der Fähigkeit zur Liebe und einer späten Freundschaft.

Book Description: This book explores how notions of deviancy and social control are dramatized in the novels of the late nineteenth-century Spanish realist author Benito Pérez Galdós. Galdós’s treatment of prostitutes, alcoholics, beggars and vagrants is studied within the context of the socio-cultural and medical debates circulating during the period. Drawing on Foucault’s very specific conceptualization of the idea of control through discourses, the book analyzes how Galdós’s novels interacted with contemporary debates on poverty and deviancy – notably, discourses on hygiene, domesticity and philanthropy. It is proposed that Galdós’s view of marginal social groups was much more open-minded, shrewd and liberal than the often inflexible pronouncements made by contemporary professional voices.
