In Extremis by Jürgen Kropp,Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber Book Resume:

The book addresses a weakness of current methodologies used in extreme value assessment, i.e. the assumption of stationarity, which is not given in reality. With respect to this issue a lot of new developed technologies are presented, i.e. influence of trends vs. internal correlations, quantitative uncertainty assessments, etc. The book not only focuses on artificial time series data, but has a close link to empirical measurements, in order to make the suggested methodologies applicable for practitioners in water management and meteorology.

In Extremis Leadership by Thomas A. Kolditz Book Resume:

In this extraordinary book Col. Kolditz explains that his research on in extremis leadership, where followers perceive their lives to be threatened, reveals that the leadership lessons and principles in evidence in dangerous settings also apply to leading in business and everyday life. The book shows how leadership literally defines the promise of hope or future life and that extremely capable leaders are needed in all walks of life. The book describes a variety of high-risk situations that are ideal settings to seek and find great leaders, assess how they might be different, and to glean valuable insights for extraordinary leadership in our everyday lives. Through heart-stopping real-life stories of leaders in these extreme situations, Kolditz insists that leaders at all levels can improve their effectiveness.

Classics in Extremis by Edmund Richardson Book Resume:

Classics in Extremis reimagines classical reception. Its contributors explore some of the most remarkable, hard-fought and unsettling claims ever made on the ancient world: from the coal-mines of England to the paradoxes of Borges, from Victorian sexuality to the trenches of the First World War, from American public-school classrooms to contemporary right-wing politics. How does the reception of the ancient world change under impossible strain? Its protagonists are 'marginal' figures who resisted that definition in the strongest terms. Contributors argue for a decentered model of classical reception: where the 'marginal' shapes the 'central' as much as vice versa – and where the most unlikely appropriations of antiquity often have the greatest impact. What kind of distortions does the model of 'centre' and 'margins' produce? How can 'marginal' receptions be recovered most effectively? Bringing together some of the leading scholars in the field, Classics in Extremis moves beyond individual case studies to develop fresh methodologies and perspectives on the study of classical reception.

In Extremis by Neil Bartlett Book Resume:

On the night of 24th March 1895, Mrs Robinson, a society palm-reader, agreed to see Oscar Wilde in her London flat. Wilde's lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, 'Bosie', was urging him to sue the Marquis of Queensberry (Bosie's father) for criminal libel. But Wilde's friends, wary of Queensberry's power, were warning him to leave town. In Extremis reveals the strange turmoil of that night, as a man at the height of his fame turns to a complete stranger for advice about a potentially life-changing decision. In Extremis was first presented in November 2000 at the National Theatre alongside De Profundis to mark the centenary of Oscar Wilde's death.

In Extremis by W.H. Collier Book Resume:

A giant comet is hurtling toward Earth, and the world learns that all life on the planet will be obliterated in just seven days. Stanleys Comet is a gallows humor view of the precipitous decline of civil society upon the news. Events unfold from the perspective of Stanley Caldwell, a thirty-five year old assistant copy shop manager who resides with his mother in Baton Rouge , Louisiana, and Dr. Herschel Stanley, an embittered junior grade NASA astronomer whose accidental discovery of the comet catapults him from obscurity to momentary notoriety. In The Third Love, the followers of Smith, an executed convict who taught that good and evil are physical qualities controlled by the laws of the physik, acquire a nuclear weapon with the intent of putting Smiths teachings into practice. The novel is set in the near future at a time when computers and efficient economics have relieved the majority of the need or even the opportunity to work. Instead, most pass their days in meaningless isolation watching multivision, a form of three-dimensional television and internet with a picture more real than reality. The novel centers on the life of an ordinary guy in such a society, while following the Presidents political calculations that in the end coincide with the aims of the followers of Smith. Although the two novels of In Extremis are separate in conception, both are darkly humorous studies of individuals and societies under extreme stress and each explores the role of choice, chance and fate in determining the final outcome.

In Extremis by David Ainsworth Book Resume:

In 2035, as the nation slides into economic collapse caused by a perfect storm of oil scarcity and cyber warfare, a U.S. Marine officer and his journalist ex-wife are drawn into international intrigue involving the People’s Republic of China, a rogue element in the U.S. national security apparatus, and a mentally unstable oil-state Senator running for President. Vincent and Grace Long are actors in a chaotic, frightening, and ultimately life-affirming odyssey of collapse, adaptation and survival. The reader will be startled to find the country and the world in the dystopian condition characterized in this novel, especially since the story takes place a mere two decades into the future. Yet an ever-increasing global population accelerates exhaustion of the energy resources needed for survival even as climate change compounds scarcity. Onset of the crisis occurs when America and the industrialized world hit “peak oil,” and demand exceeds terminally declining supply—something that will occur sooner than you think.
