“(..) For the thus-naïve among the newcomers, or those who are well aware of how different life will be here, or simply the curious, this book is a great, complete and yet informal guide on life among the Dutch. Taking you on a trip through his life in the Netherlands, Marc Resch makes us grateful for his powers of observation and capacity to remember all that assaults your consciousness and sub-consciousness alike.” – XPat Review (2005)

Read the first chapter online: Dutch Wonderland – in: Rozenberg Quarterly
2010

The Dutch have been living in Wonderland for quite a while, boosted by a glamorous 17th Century history, the grand Dutch Golden Century, when Holland ruled the waves. Undeniably the Dutch carry a rich history, though with ups and downs. Noblesse oblige! The Dutch have felt that their country could be a guide to the world; if they could, the Dutch would save the world, for sure. Since the end of World War II the Dutch gradually evolved into occupants of an excellent spot on the globe.

Michael Meeuwis ~ Handwoordenboek Lingála – Nederlands ~ Nederlands – Lingála

ISBN 978 90 5170 606 2
154 pagina’s
Euro 24,50

Het Lingála wordt gesproken door ongeveer 25 miljoen sprekers in de westelijke en noordelijke delen van de Democratische Republiek Congo, in omringende landen alsook in de Congolese diaspora in de Westerse wereld. Dit handwoordenboek dekt het Lingála zoals het in Kinshasa gesproken wordt, dat de meest invloedrijke variëteit is.

De hoofdstad van de DR Congo heeft immers een grote politieke, taalkundige en culturele impact op de andere gebieden, waardoor het deze variëteit is waarmee men in het hele taalgebied terechtkan. Het handwoordenboek wil vooral van praktisch nut zijn, eerder dan dat het bestemd is voor de wetenschappelijke analyse van een van de twee talen. Het richt zich tot wie een van de twee talen wil leren verstaan en spreken om ze in de praktijk te kunnen hanteren. In de eerste plaats gaat het om Nederlandstaligen die Lingála willen leren, maar dankzij de tweezijdigheid van dit handwoordenboek is het ook onmisbaar voor sprekers van het Lingála die hun kennis van het Nederlands op peil willen brengen.

Michael Meeuwis is hoogleraar aan de Universiteit Gent, waar hij sinds 2002 onder meer Lingála doceert.

Henk A. Becker – Generations of Lucky Devils and Unlucky Dogs

16,5 x 24 cm
258 pag.
ISBN 978 90 361 0 277 3
2012

Silver-grey manpower is a gold mine to society. One by one, the baby boom cohorts will reach the age of 65 starting from 2010. They are large cohorts, relatively well educated and healthy with considerable pension and health care rights. In short, they are lucky devils. As a result of ageing, cohorts that were born in 1985 onwards and that enter the labour market as from approximately 2010 will be required to pay many additional taxes during the course of their entire working life spanning more than forty years. They are, in short, unlucky dogs. Redistribution of joys and burdens could trigger conflicts between generations. A better solution is to identify and deploy society’s hidden resources.
