Nichts auf der Welt ist schwieriger als die Liebe. Das erleben Fermina Daza und Doktor Juvenal Urbino tagtäglich in ihrer mehr als fünfzigjährigen Ehe. Und niemand erfährt das schmerzlicher als Fermina Dazas ewiger Verehrer Florentino Ariza, der 51 Jahre, 9 Monate und 4 Tage auf sie gewartet hat. Schwärmerisch hat er in poetischen Briefen um sie geworben, sie in aller Keuschheit gewonnen und wieder verloren, aber nie aufgehört, sie zu lieben. Während Fermina Daza an der Seite ihres Mannes, eines hoch geachteten Arztes, ein großbürgerliches Leben führt, bringt es Florentino Ariza durch beruflichen Erfolg zu großem Wohlstand. Er ist ein nimmermüder Schürzenjäger, im Herzen aber Fermina Daza immer treu geblieben, und noch am Abend der Beerdigung ihres Mannes erklärt er ihr erneut seine Liebe.Ein großer Liebesroman, eine Geschichte voller Lebenskraft und Poesie. „Ohne die reichen Bücher von García Márquez wäre unsere Welt entschieden ärmer.“ Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

Empires of Panic is the first book to explore how panics have been historically produced, defined, and managed across different colonial, imperial, and post-imperial settings—from early nineteenth-century East Asia to twenty-first-century America. Contributors consider panic in relation to colonial anxieties, rumors, indigenous resistance, and crises, particularly in relation to epidemic disease. How did Western government agencies, policymakers, planners, and other authorities understand, deal with, and neutralize panics? What role did evolving technologies of communication play in the amplification of local panics into global events? Engaging with these questions, the book challenges conventional histories to show how intensifying processes of intelligence gathering did not consolidate empire, but rather served to produce critical uncertainties—the uneven terrain of imperial panic. Robert Peckham is associate professor in the Department of History and co-director of the Centre for the Humanities and Medicine at the University of Hong Kong. "Charting the relays of rumor and knowledge that stoke colonial fears of disease, disorder, and disaster, Empires of Panic offers timely and cautionary insight into how viscerally epidemics inflame imperial anxieties, and how words and their communication over new technologies accelerate panic, rally government intervention, and unsettle and entrench the exercise of global power. Relevant a century ago and even more so today." — Nayan Shah, University of Southern California; author ofContagious Divides: Epidemics and Race in San Francisco's Chinatown "Empires generated anxiety as much as ambition. This fine study focuses on anxieties generated by disease. It is the first book of its kind to track shifting forms of panic through different geopolitical regimes and imperial formations over the course of two centuries. Working across medical and imperial histories, it is a major contribution to both." — Andrew S. Thompson, University of Exeter; author of Empire and Globalisation: Networks of People, Goods and Capital in the British World, c. 1850–1914(with Gary B. Magee)
