Wie man einen verdammt guten Roman schreibt.

Das Buch ist unterhaltsam zu lesen, es ist jedoch schwierig, den Nutzen zu
bewerten. Grundsätzlich würde ich das Buch empfehlen, weil es unterhaltend
ist und schnell fertig gelesen, so dass sich die Zeitverschwendung bei Nicht-
Zufriedenheit in Grenzen hält.
Wenn guy ernsthaft daran interessiert ist, seinen Schreibstil zu verbessern,
wird guy von diesem Buch vermutlich enttäuscht sein.
Wenn guy vor allem daran interessiert ist, wie guy sich einen Bestseller-Plot
für eine Geschichte ausdenkt, ist guy hiermit vermutlich intestine bedient.

Sample text

Notes * An earlier version of this chapter was published in International Journal of Middle East Studies, Volume 32, May 2000, pp. 255–75. Permission for republication was granted to the editor by Cambridge University Press in July 2002. 1 These five questions represent a modified and expanded version of the original 1990 Human Development Index (UNDP 1990), which focused on just three variables: life expectancy, adult literacy and income. However, subsequent revisions to the 1990 Human Development Index added variables relating to poverty and inequality (see UNDP 1998: 15).

For instance, agriculture has always had a virtually free market wage system, with the laws of supply and demand setting daily wage levels. By contrast, government has had a very rigid wage system, with annual wage increases being pegged closely to increases in seniority. Yet the recent fall in real wages in Egypt seems to have affected both sectors of the economy – agriculture and government – with equal vengeance. The decline in real wages has probably been a major factor leading to the recent rise in urban and rural poverty.

Under normal circumstances, Gini coefficients simply do not show such large changes over such short periods of time. 6. In all likelihood, the large and unusual changes in these Gini coefficients are caused by measurement error. In other words, because many transactions in rural Egypt are non-monetized, measuring the expenditures of rural households is more difficult than measuring those in urban Egypt. For example, problems such as measuring the value of home-produced food items and measuring the value of goods received as payment in kind render it more difficult to accurately measure household expenditures in rural Egypt.
