Sacrifice and national belonging in twentieth-century Germany by Walter Prescott Webb memorial lectures( )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of the 20th century, Germans from virtually all walks of life were touched by two problems: forging a sense of national community and coming to terms with widespread suffering. Arguably, no country in the modern Western world has been so closely associated with both inflicting and overcoming catastrophic misery in the name of national belonging. Within this context, the concept and ideal of "sacrifice" have played a pivotal role in recent German political culture. As the seven studies in this volume show, once the value of heroic national sacrifice was invoked during World War I to mobilize German soldiers and civilians, it proved to be a remarkably effective way to respond to a wide variety of social dislocations. How did the ideals of sacrifice play a role in constructing German nationalism? How did the Nazis use this idea to justify mass killing? What consequences did this have for postwar Germany? This volume opens up discussions about the history of 20th-century German political life

Narrating the city : histories, space, and the everyday( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent decades, the insight that narration shapes our perception of reality has inspired and influenced the most innovative historical accounts. Focusing on new research, this volume explores the history of non-elite populations in cities from Caracas to Vienna, and Paris to Belgrade. Narration is central to the theme of each contribution, whether as a means of description, a methodological approach, or basic story telling. This book brings together research that both asks classical socio-historical questions and takes narration seriously, engaging with novels, films, local history accounts, petitions to municipal authorities, and interviews with alternative cinema activists"--Provided by publisher

The costs of success on the high-stakes standardized reading test in terms of standards based instruction in a high-minority, high poverty elementary school by Matthew Berg( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This research examines the costs to standards based instruction in reading that occur as a result of teaching for success on Minnesota's high-stakes standardized test in a high-minority, high-poverty school. This study builds on past research that broadly examined the connection between high-stakes testing and standards (e.g. Council for Basic Education, 2004; National Board on Educational Testing and Public Policy, 2003), and extends the use of the social science version of Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle as a theoretical framework, previously used by Amrein and Berliner in their examination of the manifold impact of high-stakes graduation tests (2002). Utilizing a one-dimensional, qualitative, ethnographic framework, this research entailed surveying and interviewing two third and two fifth grade teachers. Costs discovered include, among others, a transformation of the curriculum for 29% of the year, disregard of non-tested standards, and extensive training in non-standards based test taking skills and strategies

Reconstruction of Aerosol Properties from Forward-scattering Intensities( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This work describes the design and application of an apparatus to image aerosol particles using digital holography in a flowthrough, contact-free manner. Particles in an aerosol stream are illuminated by a triggered, pulsed laser and the pattern produced by the interference of this light with that scattered by the particles is recorded by a digital camera. The recorded pattern constitutes a digital hologram from which an image of the particles is computationally reconstructed using a fast Fourier transform. This imaging is validated using a cluster of ragweed pollen particles. Examples involving mineral-dust aerosols demonstrate the technique's in situ imaging capability for complex-shaped particles over a size range of roughly 15-500 micrometer. The focusing-like character of the reconstruction process is demonstrated using a sodium chloride (NaCl) aerosol particle and is compared to a similar particle imaged with a conventional microscope
