6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thinking Green" is now part of the very fabric of life in Germany. Both politics and daily life are informed by considerations which were hitherto unknown. This volume considers the emergence and development of green ideas in Germany, and analyzes the part played by green thought in the arts, including literature, drama, film, popular fiction, architecture, philosophy and other cultural arenas. In so doing, it explores the formative roles that writers, artists and other cultural actors have played in disseminating and criticizing green ideas
Peter Schneider( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Schneider is a seminal figure in contemporary German writing. Initially prominent for his involvement in the student movement, he has consistently focused on problems at the heart of German national and cultural identity: the legacy of Auschwitz, the student revolt, neoNazi violence, the Green movement, and, above all, the division and subsequent unification of Cermany. From the influential Lenz (1973) to the challenging yet accessible Paarungen (1992), Schneider's fiction and essays bring meticulous intellectual analysis to what he himself describes as a neglected 'deutsche Tradition von ironie, Leichtigkeit, Humor'. The first book in English or German to be devoted exclusively to Peter Schneider, this collection of essays is intended both as an introduction for the general reader and as a resource for the specialist. It contains a previously unpublished piece by Schneider, together with a revealing interview and a biographical sketch. The contributions on various aspects of the author's fiction and essays are complemented by the fullest bibliography to date of Schneider's primary works as well as a select list of secondary sources
