Nach dem großen Erfolg seiner Bearbeitung von Alexander v. Humboldts Reise durchs Baltikum nach Russland und Sibirien 1829 hat der Altmeister der Humboldtforschung und der Geographie- und Reisegeschichte, Professor Dr. Hanno Beck, die Darstellung der klassischen Amerikareise Alexander v. Humboldts neu bearbeitet. Dies ist umso bemerkenswerter, als Humboldt seine berühmte Reise nur zu einem Drittel selbst geschildert hat. Der Leser wird deshalb bei der Lektüre eine große Überraschung erleben, da er nun die maßgebende Forschungsreise der Neuzeit in einem Zug nachvollziehen kann. Er erlebt das Abenteuer der sechsjährigen Vorbereitung und der fünfjährigen Forschungsreise Humboldts auf den Kanarischen Inseln und im Gebiet der heutigen Staaten Venezuela, Kuba, Kolumbien, Ecuador, Peru, Ecuador (2. Aufenthalt) und der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika. Viele von Humboldts wissenschaftlichen Forschungsergebnissen haben Eingang in die moderne Geographie gefunden: so zum Beispiel seine Beschreibung der Vegetation des tropischen Südamerikas, der Schwarz- und Weißwasserflüsse, des Casiquiare, der natürlichen Verbindung zwischen Orinoko und Rio Negro, seine Profile und Pflanzengeographie. Humboldt war vielseitiger Geograph und Forschungsreisender. Auch den Menschen sah er immer als Teil seiner Physikalischen Geographie, und von seinem Reisewerk gingen geographische und politische Impulse aus. So brandmarkte er die Menschenschinderei in den Bergwerken und Manufakturen Mexikos, verteidigt die menschliche Würde der tropischen Indianer oder schildert das Leben der Gesellschaft und den Stand der Wissenschaften in den Hauptstädten Lateinamerikas

Political essay on the island of Cuba by Alexander von Humboldt( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in German and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humboldt's most controversial book, Political Essay on the Island of Cuba was banned, censored, and willfully mistranslated to suppress Humboldt's strong antislavery sentiments. It reemerges here, newly translated from the original two-volume French edition, to introduce a new generation of readers to Humboldt's astonishing multiplicity of scientific and philosophical perspectives. In their critical introduction, Vera M. Kutzinski and Ottmar Ette emphasize Humboldt's rare ability to combine scientific rigor with a global consciousness and a deeply felt philosophical humanism. The result is a work on Cuba of historical import that will attract historians of science as well as cultural historians, political scientists, and literary scholars. --Book Jacket
