10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in German and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

«While he certainly offers insightful analysis of Brecht's literary works and personal writings, the true value of the collection lies in Hermand's ability to place Brecht's works in both cultural and historical contexts. (...) Hermand's collection of Brecht essays is not just good in terms of quality, but serves to be useful through informing and inspiring his readers. (...) This is a highly insightful volume and an excellent reference for scholars as well as those wishing to learn more about Brecht's life and works.» (Carl R. Follmer, The Brecht Yearbook) «Hermand hat ein kluges, durch und durch ‘politisches Buch‘ über Brecht vorgelegt.» (David Salomon, Das Argument)

Old dreams of a new Reich : volkish utopias and national socialism by Jost Hermand( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Old Dreams of a New Reich, the translation of Jost Hermand's comprehensive study of prefascist and fascist utopias (Der alte Traum vom neuen Reich), examines tracts and futuristic novels crucial to the development and final radicalization of German national sentiments from the second part of the eighteenth century. Scholars and propagandists used the glorified virtues of ancient German tribes to create the cult of Germanic values. These works offer a vivid insight into the public imagination between 1871 and 1945, and into the highly successful media machinations employed by the Right as it used all literary genres - including avant-gardistic works as well as pulp novels and works of science fiction - to manipulate the general public

Geschichte der Germanistik by Jost Hermand( Book )

28 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit diesem Werk wird der Versuch unternommen, die Geschichte der Germanistik von ihren Anfängen bis zum Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts darzustellen. Dabei werden nicht nur deren Methoden in ihrer chronologischen Abfolge behandelt und auf ihren politischen und sozialgeschichtlichen Hintergrund hin interpretiert, sondern auch der institutsgeschichtliche Rahmen berücksichtigt. Dieses Buch versteht sich somit als ein Leitfaden der Geschichte eines Fachs, das wegen seines zeitweiligen Anspruchs, die nationale Führungswissenschaft zu sein, zu den vielgeschmähten Disziplinen innerhalb der Geisteswissenschaften gehört und doch - wegen seiner mannigfaltigen Identitätsstiftung - eine ungebrochene Anziehungskraft ausübt

Culture in dark times : Nazi fascism, inner emigration, and exile by Jost Hermand( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The meaning of "culture" today has expanded to include almost everything that surrounds people in their daily life, but today's usage would have baffled the influential ideological opinion makers of the first half of the twentieth century. Between 1933 and 1945 most members of all three groups--the Nazi fascists, Inner Emigration, and Exile--fought with equal fervor over who could definitively claim to represent the authentically "great German culture," as it was culture that imparted real value to both the state and the individual. But when authorities made pronouncements about "culture" were they really talking about high art? This book analyzes the highly complex interconnections among the cultural-political concepts of these various ideological groups and asks why the most artistically ambitious art forms were viewed as politically important by all cultured (or even semi-cultured) Germans in the period from 1933 to 1945, their ownership the object of a bitter struggle between key figures in the Nazi fascist regime, representatives of Inner Emigration, and Germans driven out of the Third Reich. Jost Hermand is Vilas Professor Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and Honorary Professor at the Humboldt University in Berlin. He has been visiting professor at Austin (Texas), Harvard, Berlin, Bremen, Marburg, Giessen, Kassel, Essen, Freiburg, Oldenburg, Potsdam, and Munich. He is an ACLS Fellow, recipient of the Hilldale Award for Academic Excellence, fellow of the Vienna Academy, member of the Saxon Academy in Leipzig, and holds an honorary PhD from the University of Kassel. His research and teaching encompass German literature and culture since 1750, with special emphasis on democratic traditions, German-Jewish relations, fascism, and Germany after 1945, as well as on schools of criticism and a comparative arts approach to German culture."--Publisher's website
