BRINGING METAL TO THE CHILDREN: THE COMPLETE BERSERKER'S GUIDE TO WORLD TOUR DOMINATION

In BRINGING METAL TO THE CHILDREN, twenty-five-year music veteran Zakk Wylde, the master of fantastical excess, shares what it takes to be a true Berzerker, including a True Rocker Test that reveals if fans are Berzerker-worthy or poseur tools. For those with admirable scores, he offers lurid examples of Metal excess, telling road stories about wild nights and backstage havoc with many of Heavy Metal's Gods-Rob Zombie, Slash, Alice in Chains bassist Mike Inez, Skid Row guitarist Dave "Snake" Sabo, Metallica's Lars Ulrich, and of course the Godfather of heavy metal, Ozzy Osbourne.

From recording a Metal record to setting up a shooting range on the tour bus, this is the greatest speculative and truly dangerous rock 'n' roll road show every Metal Head must have.

Wylde has won nearly every guitar award imaginable, and is a major influence on a new battalion of rock guitarists currently popular today. One thing is for certain: wherever Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society travels, brutality is sure to follow.

THE LOGISTIC REVOLUTION: THE RISE OF LOGISTICS IN THE MASS CONSUMPTION SOCIETY

Original German title: DIE LOGISTISCHE REVOLUTION: Der Aufstieg der Logistik in der Massenkonsumgesellschaft

In The Logistic Revolution, Richard Vahrenkamp discusses the political and economic factors which have led to the rise of logistics in Europe in the context of the mass consumption society. Not only does he show the ascent of truck transport in the 1920s to satisfy consumer needs and the importance of the European motorway infrastructure for the development of modern logistics, he also sheds light on the dimension that freight transport has acquired in Europe and on the organizations that have been created in Europe to enable and facilitate cross border goods transports. Other than in the US, the national transport markets in Europe were initially uncoordinated. It was only in the process of European unification that transport markets for truck freight and associated logistics systems became Europe wide. This change was accompanied by the struggle between rail and truck.

The book also discusses Europe wide just-in-time deliveries in car manufactures, the role of the parcel delivery services in a society of mass consumption as well as the problems of Alpine crossing for goods traffic. Finally, he points at the various factors that led to the logistics revolution of the 1990s, such as the emergence of Internet and the shift of consumer goods production from Europe to Asia.
