Representations and othering in discourse : the construction of Turkey in the EU contextThis volume examines the construction of Turkey's possible European Union accession in French political discourse. In today's France, heated debates regarding Turkey's EU membership are turning into an essential part of European identity formation. Once again, the 'Turkish Other' functions as a mirror for defining not only the 'European Self', but also European values. By providing a genuine and multi-disciplinary approach for studying the Otherness attributed to Turkey, this book contributes to our understanding of the Self/Other nexus in International Relations.

"Cards on the Table" by Agatha Christie [UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK WITH TEXT]An unusual invitation to dinner and an evening of bridge turns into a murder investigation for Hercule Poirot. His host, the eccentric Mr. Shaitana, also invited three other detectives and four people he greatly admires. When their host is found dead, the crime experts turn to the other guests to find the culprit. After all, Mr. Shaitana admired them because he believed each of them had already gotten away with murder. Considered the best of Christie's closed-door mysteries, Cards on the Table offers Poirot an intriguing cast of suspects on which to exercise his little grey cells.
