Hailed for its coiled eroticism and the moral claims it makes upon the reader, this mesmerizing novel is a story of love and secrets, horror and compassion, unfolding against the haunted landscape of postwar Germany. When he falls ill on his way home from school, fifteen-year-old Michael Berg is rescued by Hanna, a woman twice his age. In time she becomes his lover—then she inexplicably disappears. When Michael next sees her, he is a young law student, and she is on trial for a hideous crime. As he watches her refuse to defend her innocence, Michael gradually realizes that Hanna may be guarding a secret she considers more shameful than murder. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Market Volatility proposes an innovative theory, backed by substantial statisticalevidence, on the causes of price fluctuations in speculative markets. It challenges the standardefficient markets model for explaining asset prices by emphasizing the significant role that popularopinion or psychology can play in price volatility.Why does the stock market crash from time totime? Why does real estate go in and out of booms? Why do long term borrowing rates suddenly makesurprising shifts? Market Volatility represents a culmination of Shiller's research on thesequestions over the last dozen years. It contains reprints of major papers with new interpretivematerial for those unfamiliar with the issues, new papers, new surveys of relevant literature,responses to critics, data sets, and reframing of basic conclusions. Includes is work authoredjointly with John Y. Campbell, Karl E. Case, Sanford J. Grossman, and Jeremy J. Siegel.MarketVolatility sets out basic issues relevant to all markets in which prices make movements forspeculative reasons and offers detailed analyses of the stock market, the bond market, and the realestate market. It pursues the relations of these speculative prices and extends the analysis ofspeculative markets to macroeconomic activity in general.In studies of the October 1987 stock marketcrash and boom and post-boom housing markets, Market Volatility reports on research directly aimedat collecting information about popular models and interpreting the consequences of belief in thosemodels. Shiller asserts that popular models cause people to react incorrectly to economic data andbelieves that changing popular models themselves contribute significantly to price movements bearingno relation to fundamental shocks.Robert J. Shiller is Stanley B. Resor Professor of Economics atthe Cowles Foundation, Yale University.
