The Prize recounts the panoramic history of oil -- and the struggle for wealth power that has always surrounded oil. This struggle has shaken the world economy, dictated the outcome of wars, and transformed the destiny of men and nations. The Prize is as much a history of the twentieth century as of the oil industry itself. The canvas of this history is enormous -- from the drilling of the first well in Pennsylvania through two great world wars to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and Operation Desert Storm. The cast extends from wildcatters and rogues to oil tycoons, and from Winston Churchill and Ibn Saud to George Bush and Saddam Hussein. The definitive work on the subject of oil and a major contribution to understanding our century, The Prize is a book of extraordinary breadth, riveting excitement -- and great importance.

Novelist Andrew Craig has not been sober in a very long time. After losing his wife in an auto accident he believes to have been his own fault, he turned to the bottle, and to his sister-in-law, Leah, who acts as his caretaker and live-in nurse. Then, when he is awarded the Nobel Prize in literature for his novel, "The Perfect State," a historical jab at communism, he heads for Stockholm, hoping to find a reason to live, and to write. The other laureates have their own problems, a heart surgeon who believes that sharing his award with an Italian colleague robs him of his glory, a married couple awarded the prize in medicine in the middle of a serious marital crisis, and others – including Max Stratman, whose heart isn't really up to the trip, but who needs the prize money to provide for niece, Emily. This novel delves into the lives, loves, dreams and nightmares of these characters, and others, building a panoramic view of the Nobel Prize, life in Stockholm, and the state of world politics in the years following World War II. It is rich and compelling, driving the reader from the pits of despair to the heights of inspiration. A wonderful novel by one of America's finest novelists. The Prize was made into a movie starring Paul Newman. SW: Six people all around the world are catapulted to international fame as they receive the most important telegraph of their lives, which invites them to Stockholm to receive the prize. This will result to be a turning point in their lives, in which personal affairs and political intrigue will engulf every one of the characters.

Written by USA Today Bestselling Author K.L. Middleton Adam Knight wasn't just my first kiss. He was the cruel, heartless jerk who lived to torment me after I bruised his ego in front of his friends. He hated me for it and made my high school years intolerable. But... I survived and we eventually went our separate ways. Until I bought a stupid raffle ticket. I’m not going to lie – I was a dick to Chloe Maverick and she has every right not to forgive me. But I’m no longer the immature prick I used to be. I’m a man now and she’s… she’s all woman. She might not be able to let the past go But... I refuse to let that stop us from having a future. When Chloe Maverick transfers to Diamond Lake University, she is talked into attending a fundraiser and finds herself winning the main raffle. The prize? An all inclusive weekend vacation with a local web celebrity - an arrogant, bullheaded jerk she knew in high school. Unfortunately, she can't get out of the date and Adam hasn't changed much, except for maybe getting irritatingly more handsome. After getting injured in the Daytona 500, Adam Knight thought he'd never experience the kind of rush he'd lived for on the track. That is until he started chasing after ghosts. Now he finds himself face-to-face with the girl who shamed him in high school. She's still as feisty, untouchable, and beautiful as ever. She's also his date for an entire weekend at the resort of his choice - a luxurious hotel in California... that's said to be haunted. Unfortunately, Chloe can't seem to let go of the past, but Adam is determined to win her over, catch himself a ghost, and lay their demons to rest.

How the creation of the Nobel Prize in Economics changed the economics profession, Sweden, and the world Our confidence in markets comes from economics, and our confidence in economics is underpinned by the Nobel Prize in Economics, which was first awarded in 1969. Was it a coincidence that the prize and the rise of free-market liberalism began at the same time? The Nobel Factor is the first book to describe the origins and power of the most important prize in economics. It tells how the prize, created by the Swedish central bank, emerged from a conflict between central bank orthodoxy and Sweden's social democracy. The aim was to use the halo of the Nobel brand to influence the future of Sweden and the rest of the developed world by enhancing the bank's authority and the prestige of market-friendly economics. And the strategy has worked spectacularly—with sometimes disastrous results for societies striving to cope with the requirements of economic theory and deregulated markets. Drawing on previously untapped archives and providing a unique analysis of the sway of prizewinners, The Nobel Factor offers an unprecedented account of the real-world consequences of economics and its greatest prize.
