Gedachte Stadt - Gebaute Stadt Urbanität in der deutsch-deutschen Systemkonkurrenz 1945-1990 by Institut für Vergleichende Städtegeschichte( )

1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vier Jahrzehnte lang waren die Bundesrepublik Deutschland und die DDR einander in höchst ambivalenter Weise verbunden, denn beide Halbnationen waren zugleich Vorposten in der Systemkonkurrenz des Kalten Krieges. Im deutsch-deutschen Städtebau - in der geplanten wie in der gebauten Stadt – realisierten sich sowohl die unterschiedlichen politischen Ordnungsvorstellungen wie auch die verbindenden architektonischen Traditionen besonders markant. Der Band leuchtet dieses Spannungsfeld umfassend aus: Er analysiert die leitenden Paradigmen des Städtebaus, fragt nach der symbolischen Rolle der Regierungssitze in Bonn und Ost-Berlin und zeigt, welche Funktion die Stadt als Modell und Imageträger im Systemwettstreit übernahm

Männlichkeit zwischen Gefühl und Revolution Eine Emotionsgeschichte der bundesdeutschen 68er-Bewegung by Stefanie Pilzweger( )

1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wie sind Politik, Emotionen und Geschlecht miteinander verflochten? Stefanie Pilzweger erzählt die Geschichte der bundesdeutschen 68er-Bewegung als 'Gefühlsgeschichte' und zeigt so, dass Emotionen das Handeln der politischen Aktivisten motivierten und den historischen Verlauf der sozialen Bewegung maßgeblich prägten. Sie analysiert die Studentenbewegung als eine männlich codierte Protest- und Gefühlskultur: Da männliche Akteure das zeitgenössische Protestmilieu zahlenmäßig und inhaltlich dominierten, konnten sich auch 'maskuline' Gefühlsregeln als konstitutiv für den kollektiven Emotionshaushalt durchsetzen.

Der Sklavenaufstand von Haiti : ethnische Differenz und Humanitätsideale in der Literatur des 19. Jahrhunderts by Marie Biloa Onana( )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Am 22. August 1791 brach in Port-au-Prince der erste große kollektive Sklavenaufstand der Neuzeit aus. Die Sklaven von Saint-Domingue erhoben sich gegen die französischen Kolonialherren. Am Ende dieses Aufstands proklamierten die Schwarzen und Mulatten am 1. Januar 1804 die Unabhängigkeit der Insel unter dem Namen Haiti. Haiti erlangte somit als erstes Land in Lateinamerika seine Unabhängigkeit. Dieses Buch zeigt das große Echo des Sklavenaufstands von Saint-Domingue in der Literatur des 19. Jahrhunderts. Deutlich wird, dass dieses Ereignis zu einem wichtigen Referenzpunkt der Moderne wurde und dass auch Texte etwa von Victor Hugo oder Heinrich von Kleist Teil eines übergreifenden Diskurses sind, in dem ethnische Differenz, Geschlecht und Nation als kulturelle Deutungsmuster wirksam sind

Mediated discourse : the nexus of practice by Ronald Scollon( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mediated Discourse: The Nexus of Practice sets out a discursive theory of human action. Language and action are intimately related. The difficult question to answer is how they are related. Mediated Discourse Theory looks into social relationships to see how the use of language is both a form of action in itself and is also indirectly related to all other forms of human action. Through the empirical study of a one year old child learning to exchange objects with caregivers, Scollon challenges the commonly held claim that all practices are represented in discourse and that all discourse has the function of structuring practice."--Jacket

On thermonuclear war by Herman Kahn( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Thermonuclear War was controversial when originally published and remains so today. It is iconoclastic, crosses disciplinary boundaries, and finally it is calm and compellingly reasonable. The book was widely read on both sides of the Iron Curtain and the result was serious revision in both Western and Soviet strategy and doctrine. As a result, both sides were better able to avoid disaster during the Cold War.The strategic concepts still apply: defense, local animosities, and the usual balance-of-power issues are still very much with us. Kahn's stated purpose in writing this book was simply: "avoiding disaster and buying time, without specifying the use of this time." By the late 1950s, with both sides H-bomb-armed, reason and time were in short supply. Kahn, a military analyst at Rand since 1948, understood that a defense based only on thermonuclear arnaments was inconceivable, morally questionable, and not credible.The book was the first to make sense of nuclear weapons. Originally created from a series of lectures, it provides insight into how policymakers consider such issues. One may agree with Kahn or disagree with him on specific issues, but he clearly defined the terrain of the argument. He also looks at other weapons of mass destruction such as biological and chemical, and the history of their use. The Cold War is over, but the nuclear genie is out of the bottle, and the lessons and principles developed in On Thermonuclear War apply as much to today's China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea as they did to the Soviets."--Provided by publisher
Kafka : a very short introduction by Ritchie Robertson( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kafka's fiction vividly evokes bizarre situations: a commercial traveller is turned into an insect, a banker is arrested by a mysterious court, and a singing mouse becomes the heroine of her nation. Attending both to Kafka's crisis-ridden life and to the subtleties of his art, Ritchie Robertson shows how his work explores such characteristically modern themes as the place of the body in culture, the power of institutions over people, and the possibility of religion after Nietzsche had proclaimed 'the death of God'. This up-to-date and accessible portrait of a fascinating author shows us ways to read and make sense of his perplexing and absorbing work."--Jacket
