A Study Of German Political-cultural Periodicals From The Years Of Allied Occupation 1945-1949
2000 0-7734-7781-0
Focusing on five journals, Aufbau, Ost und West, Der Monat, Der Ruf, and Frankfurter Hefte, it reveals the scope and nature of opinion in Germany during occupation rule and before formal division. These journals provide a representative sample of opinion on a range of subjects. Prominent among these issues are Europe, cultural and political representation, collective guilt and denazification. Some areas of enquiry, notably Third Way politics and the exploration of guilt and national history, were subsequently undervalued in the dominant historical narratives of the Cold War. With their wide range of contributors and concerns, these journals chart this intense debate, highlight the course of cultural politics in East and West, and shed light on the extent of Cold War intrusion on the post-war recovery of German thought and discourse.

An English Translatioin Of Mother Right ( Mutterrecht 1861): A Study Of The Religious And Juridical Aspects Of Gynecocracy In The Ancient World
2006 0-7734-5883-2
Mother Right (1861) by Johann Jakob Bachofen (1815-1887) was the seminal document of the nineteenth century concerning the role of women in ancient societies. The title and term "mother right" requires explanation because its sense is not evident in English. The meaning of "mother" as the one who bears life, then cares for her child with selfless love, devotion, and sacrifice clearly imparts Bachofen’s point of departure. In this sense, Mother Right is a celebration of motherhood as the origin of human society, religion, morality, and decency.

The term “right” in English does not sufficiently convey the various meanings of the German term. Bachofen means at once maternal rights, birthrights, justice, laws, interests, authority, and privileges. He explores all these aspects of “mother right” in ancient societies, specifically Lycia, Crete, Ancient Greece, Egypt, India, Central Asia, Northern Africa, and Spain. He concludes his work by connecting ancient mother right with Christianity.

An English Translation Of Palaogeographie - Geologische Geschichte Der Meere Und Festlander / Paleography - Geologic History Of The Seas And Continents (1924)
2012 0-7734-2604-3
Franz Kossmat’s rare 1924 edition of Palaögeographie (Geologische Geschicte der Meere und Festländer) [Paleogeography (Geographic History of the Seas and Continents), to be published here in a bilingual edition] is a remarkable book that hosts an early encounter between classical geology and plate tectonic theory. Kossmat generates an interesting critique of Wegener’s continental drift model while providing some intriguing theories of his own regarding continental motion. More importantly, Kossmat documented the interplay between transgressive and regressive marine phases in a unique graphical format that deserves to be better known. Kossmat’s theories in this regard are virtually unknown in the Anglophone world, as none of Kossmat’s books (nor any of his articles that I am aware of) have been translated into English. Kossmat is often portrayed as a opponent of continental drift (this explains lack of attention to his work), but the story is not so simple, because he did, unlike G.G. Simpson and other Anglophone geologists, accept both mantle convection plus an interesting and unusual version of continental mobility that has been an intriguing and unrecognized link to modern inertial interchange true polar wander theory. A publication of this translation is now timely as we approach the centenary of Wegener’s 1912 publication of the continental drift theory.

Aspects Of Fifteenth-century Society In The German Carnival Comedies Speculum Hominis
1993 0-7734-9328-X
This study examines two fields of research: German society of the fifteenth century, and its carnival comedies. This is a detailed treatment of the four classes (peasants, urban middle class, clergy, and nobility), including such aspects as health, the self and its historicity, and general rules of conduct. The German carnival plays are valuable literary texts allowing insight into fifteenth-century life.

It also contains a synoptic tabulation of the Nürnberg plays, valuable to both drama specialists and medievalists.

Bioethical And Ethical Issues Surrounding The Trials And Code Of Nuremberg
2003 0-7734-6608-8
Interdisciplinary essays on the ethical issues which encompassed the trials and Code of Nuremberg have been collated from researchers from various countries in fields as diverse as medicine, bioethics, psychoanalysis, history, philosophy, Jewish thought, law, and ethics. The book focuses on five main areas: the juridical originality of the Nuremberg trials; the scientific, epistemological, and psychoanalytic backgrounds of racism and anti-Semitism; the biomedical and bioethical issues of the Nuremberg Code; a post-Nuremberg historical, ethical, and philosophical study of the notion of a ‘crime against humanity’; and the Jewish perspective on purity, impurity, race, and the universal ethical expectations of mankind. The goal of the interdisciplinary study is to outline the necessary components of a bridge between science ethics, and ethics and law.

Eine Kommentierte Transkription Der Tagebucher Von Hermann Ludwig Von Lowenstern. Band 1: 1793-1803
2005 0-7734-6176-0
The transcription of Hermann Ludwig von Löwenstem's uncensored diaries (1793-1815) gives the modem reader a rare insight into the life of a Baltic German Russian naval officer at the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th centuries. Löwenstem traveled the world from the Baltic to the Mediterranean and Black Seas, from Reval to Paris and back by way of Berlin (1793-1801), and from Kronstadt to Copenhagen, Falmouth, Tenerife, Brazil, Nuka Hiva, Kamchatka, Nagasaki, Canton, St. Helena, Scotland and back to Kronstadt (1803-1806), and finally to Archangelsk and the Crimea (1806-1815) before retiring to marry and run three estates in Estonia. Every human endeavor engaged his attention: a sailor's revolt in England; Russians rescuing Turkish sailors during race riots in Palermo; elegant balls attended by Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton; Napoleon reviewing troops in Paris; Abbe Sicard lecturing at the Institute for the Deaf and Dumb; Japanese playing psychological games on the Russian Ambassador, Nikolai Petrovich Rezanov; "fresh meat" being secretly ferried to foreign ships in Canton; the bathhouses in Istanbul; the unbearable life in the swampy hellhole of Archangelsk; and the Crimean sect practicing castration. These diaries are also a treasure trove for students of languages since Löwenstem wrote as he spoke, that is, Baltic German with admixtures of other languages from around the world.

Every human endeavor engaged his attention: a sailor’s revolt in England; Russians rescuing Turkish sailors during race riots in Palermo; elegant balls attended by Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton; Napoleon reviewing troops in Paris; Abbe Sicard lecturing at the Institute for the Deaf and Dumb; Japanese playing psychological games on the Russian Ambassador, Nikolai Petrovich Rezanov; “fresh meat” being secretly ferried to foreign ships in Canton; the bathhouses in Istanbul; the unbearable life in the swampy hellhole of Archangelsk; and the Crimean sect practicing castration. These diaries are also a treasure trove for students of languages since Löwenstern wrote as he spoke, that is, Baltic German with admixtures of other languages from around the world.

This is the first volume of the two-volume Band 2.

Epitaph Culture In The West
2003 0-7734-6785-8
This book examines a number of facets of Western epitaph culture since antiquity, with particular emphasis on post-medieval developments in the major European countries as well as in North America. Various epitaphic “sub-cultures” are analyzed, among them the time-honored custom of composing one’s own tomb inscription as well as the ancient and modern convention of honoring animals with epitaphs. It also examines epitaph-collecting, epitaph “lies,” humorous epitaphs, and the change in social and religious attitudes toward suicides. The book concludes with a cultural and intellectual history of epitaphs. An epilogue addresses the question of the supposed disappearance of epitaph culture at the present time.

Essays On Richard Wagner And Parsifal Including Robert Calverley Treveleyan’s The New Parsifal

New insights are given on the background to staging Tannhäuser and Parsifal. Sections on the illustrations to and parodies of Parsifal extend previous research, with special emphasis on the almost forgotten stage-designer Ludwig Sievert and early reception of the opera. The inclusion of a satirical text and Trevelyan’s parody reveal some of the less serious reception.

Four Socialist Reformers Of Socialism: Alexandra Kollontai, Andrei Platonov, Robert Havemann, And Stefan Heym

This volume will appeal to all interested in 19th-century women writers and German literature in general.

Friedrich Schleiermacher's Essay On A Theory Of Sociable Behavior (1799):
2006 0-7734-5623-6
Awarded the Adele Mellen Prize for Distinguished Contribution to Scholarship

This book addresses the question of why Schleiermacher never completed the two final parts of his work, Essay on a Theory of Sociable Behavior, the first two parts of which were published in the 1799 January and February editions of Berlinisches Archiv der Zeit und ihres Geschmacks. The author’s argument is persuasive that it was never completed because Schleiermacher made the move from an understanding of sociability that was secular to a much fuller understanding of sociability as religious. Schleiermacher’s new religious understanding of sociability was included in his ground-breaking work, On Religion: Speeches to Its Cultured Despisers, also published in 1799.

From Weimar Philosemite To Nazi Apologist The Case Of Walter Bloem

The work describes one of Germany's best-known nationalists, Walter Bloem, his philosophical transformations, and his controversial contributions to German literature. His philosemitic novel Brotherhood represents a socio-political perspective in 20th-century Germany. His work is best understood in the semi-autobiographical light which Morris' book provides.

Gebunden Sind Die Flugel Der Gedanken - Louise Brachmann (1777-1822)
2006 0-7734-5533-7
Louise Brachmann is an almost-forgotten Romantic figure, friend of Sidonie von Hardenberg, sister of the major 19th-century German writer Novalis. Schiller published some of her poems. Several of her family and friends died while she was still in her twenties, and she was forced to make a living by writing. Unhappy love affairs, poor reception of her work, and uncertainties in daily life led her eventually to drown herself. Her stories, poems, and death exemplify German Romanticism. Her sufferings were widely discussed together with her radical ideas about the role of women in society and support for Greek independence. This edition brings together works that are critical of Enlightenment views on nature, God, and death. It is an important reflection of the crisis of cultural values at the beginning of the 19th century, when established views on the family, the state and the power of reason were being questioned, and the editor provides a critical assessment of Brachmann’s importance within that context.

Hitler's Bavarian Antagonist:
2006 0-7734-5735-6
This book examines an important but previously relatively unknown chapter in the Roman Catholic opposition to the rise of the Nazi Party between 1923 and 1933. In 1929, Dr. Georg Moenius (1890-1953), a Catholic priest from the Archdiocese of Bamberg, became editor of the highly-respected Munich weekly journal, the Allgemeine Rundschau, which had been published in Munich since 1904. The journal had been a relatively conservative Catholic journal noted for its support of the Catholic Centre Party and Bavarian Catholic culture. Under Moenius’ editorship, the Allgemeine Rundschau attained great notoriety in Central Europe for its fearless and bitter critique of the rise of the German right wing extremist groups, especially the ascendant National Socialist Party of Adolf Hitler, whom Moenius denounced as the ‘anti-Christ.’ Indeed, Moenius’ constant warnings of the peril of Nazism and Hitler were so shrill and persistent that he was accused (even by many who were otherwise sympathetic to him) of being afflicted by a ‘Moenomania.’

The Allegemeine Rundschau was banned in 1933, and Moenius fled Germany to escape arrest. The headstrong priest had to emigrate from one country to another as the Nazi Reich expanded between 1938 and 940, until finally he found refuge in the small colony of German emigrants in Los Angeles. Of those associates who remained in Germany after the Nazi seizure of power, many were banned from journalism. Others were placed in concentration camps.

This book is based on an extensive array of archival material from Germany, Austria and Switzerland and relevant primary sources from those countries. Given the important developments in German historiography in the twentieth century, which saw the breakdown of German statist tradition and that Germany is now of the most important members of the European Union, the significance and importance of the prescient critique of the Allgemeine Rundschau cannot be overstated.

How To Respond To Strangeness In Art:
2006 0-7734-5779-8
Working through four case studies, this book focuses on conceptual issues involved in coming to terms with works of art that bear significant marks of more than one culture. The introduction identifies the conceptual problems of ‘joining’ elements from two cultures that are strange to one another. It distinguishes between joining these elements, and merely juxtaposing, blending or mixing them. When the joining is genuine, it leads to a concord that does not erase the otherness of the joined elements to one another; instead, it continues each of the joined traditions.

The case studies examine Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde, Ming landscape paintings, Iranian rugs, and Guatemalan architecture, textiles and folk tales. The first analysis focuses on the difference between the cyclical time of the neo-Daoist poetry in Mahler’s text and the end-directedness of European music. The next chapter describes the Ming period struggle to join Yuan period elements with the very Song period elements that the Yuan painters had rejected. Thinking about Iranian rugs in European interiors opens up a contradictory valuation of the exotic when the far-away has become familiar. The last chapter brings to the surface the possibility of invisible strangeness when differences are too deep to be seen, and the even greater strangeness when the differences are surpassed.

Images Of Women In East German Cinema 1972-1982:
2006 0-7734-5684-8
Some of the most successful and controversial East German films were produced during the 1970s, many of which featured a female protagonist. These films about women – directed almost exclusively by men – were in many respects so unique to the DEFA (the state sponsored East German film corporation) as to constitute a specific genre: the DEFA Frauenfilm (women’s film). Why did the female role under socialism hold such an attraction for the filmmakers?

Drawing on mostly unpublished archive materials, the author traces how the ideological discourse regarding the depiction of women in the cinema changed in response to international political developments, national trends and cultural policies.

In the first major study in English of women on the East German screen, the author argues that these women’s films did not merely challenge assumptions and desires regarding women as women, but that they became vehicles to critically represent the relationship between the individual and society in the GDR.

A close reading and contextualized analysis of eight representative Gegenwartsfilme (films engaged in the social reality of everyday life in the contemporary GDR) is employed to establish the significance of the female DEFA protagonist – essential for any discussion of East German cinema as a part of German film history.

Jewish-christian Relations In Eigthteenth-century Germany:
2006 0-7734-5912-X
For centuries, the Jewish population of Europe has been subjected to dehumanization. Studies of European history, culture, and religion often assume that anti-Semitism is a specifically Christian phenomenon. This study sketches the historical background of anti-Semitism and extensively examines publications of the Institutum Judaicum in Halle as well as other pertinent archival materials, endeavoring to delineate some of the key people – particularly Johann Heinrich Callenberg – and how they contributed to rehumanizing the Jews.

Jews In Leipzig, Germany Under Nazism, Communism, And Democracy:

A thorough examination of the enormous differences between the attitudes toward Jews of the First Republic, the Third Reich and the German Democratic Republic, or East Germany, the last regime of which has not been studied with the depth, due not least to the relatively recent opening of sources.

Karl Theodor And The Bavarian Succession (1777-1778)

This study explores Karl Theodor's goals and plans in the Bavarian Succession, which was the last major diplomatic crisis resolved in ancien-régime Europe.

Luke: A Critical Study
1993 0-7734-9326-3
Schleiermacher's Luke (1817) displays what he took to be an accurate portrayal of the Redeemer's self-proclamation within the early church. This brilliant exegetical work specializes in higher-critical techniques then emerging. In particular, his use of redaction criticism in effect serves to discover "Q" and is scarcely surpassed in Lukan studies today. This portrayal is also crucial for his epoch-making Christian Faith (1821-1822). Editor Terrence N. Tice offers emendations to the 1825 translation by Connop Thirwall and essays placing the original and translated editions in historical perspective. The considerable appartus includes an analytical index on Luke passages with references to sermons and the Life of Jesus lectures, hereby resurrecting an important work virtually inaccessible for over 130 years.

Max Reinhardt’s Grobes Schauspielhaus – Its Artistic Goals, Planning, And Operation, 1910-1933
2003 0-7734-6802-1
The years between 1910 and 1933 represent a period of tumultuous change in Germany. Focusing on Max Reinhardt’s Großes Schauspielhaus in Berlin during the Weimar Republic offers a unique opportunity to examine the many factors that affect theatrical production outside of the realm of the aesthetic. Using neo-Marxist methodology of Raymond Williams as well as Pierre Bourdieu’s The Field of Cultural Production, this study investigates the impact of social, political, and economic factors on planning and building the Großes Schauspielhaus and on its theatrical productions. Previous works focus on Reinhardt’s use of actors, collaboration with designers, technology, etc, but this study begins by asking ‘What were the relations between Max Reinhardt’s artistic direction and the business management?’ It provides an analysis of the economic conditions of the period, the costs involved in building and maintaining a mass theater, and questions of ‘symbolic capital’ versus ‘economic capital’. An appendix provides a complete English-language translation of Max Reinhardt’s 1905 manifesto, originally published in Arthur Kahne’s Tagebuch des Dramaturgen. With illustrations.

Monika Molander
2006 0-7734-5529-9
Hilde Stieler’s selected poems appeared in Volume 8 of German Women Writers. Monika Molander, first published in 1929, has been forgotten and difficult to access. The novel is republished here with an introduction that narrates the writer’s life, especially in exile in Sanary-sur-Mer, interprets two further poems, and analyzes the text as semi-autobiographical. Set mainly in Munich, it is the story of a young music student from an upper middle-class family in Bonn, whose vulnerability leads her to be swept off her feet by her Professor. Returning to Bonn after her father’s death, she finds eventual employment as an accompanist in a Zurich cabaret. Memories of life close to the theatre merge with grotesque scenes and uncertainties about life, with popular romantic views that come close to Kitsch. The colloquialism, characterizations, often light-hearted style and happy ending, produce a typically bittersweet account from the 1920s.

My Internment And Testimony At The Nuremberg War Crimes Trial:
2006 0-7734-5665-1
This study provides a different perspective on the important Nuremberg war crimes trial of 1945 and 1946. Friedrich Rainer, an Austrian Nazi, a lawyer, an influential Gauleiter, and a well-placed Hitler lieutenant, was a witness for the defendant Arthur Seyss-Inquart. Rainer was imprisoned in the witnesses’ wing where he had a unique opportunity to observe the trial and its participants. Later, as a Yugoslav prisoner, he wrote about his nine-month incarceration. His story, both first-hand and historical, is more detached than the memoirs of the defendants and provides a different perspective from the prosecutors. Since he was not himself on trial, he maintained a certain detachment, yet he shared some of the extant emotion. Further, Rainer’s legal background allowed him to examine, compare, and analyze the process. He also endeavored to write with the historian’s eye, distinguishing between fact and rumor, presenting evidence, and drawing conclusions. Most important, he placed his account in a larger context than the immediate trial. Finally, this translation, plus the editor’s commentary, provides a glimpse into the world of a man who embodies much that was typical Nazi, a man who may be seen as an historian and apologist of National Socialism.

Nationalism Versus Cosmopolitanism In German Thought And Culture 1789-1914:
2006 0-7734-5523-X
This book is a contribution to a 21st century understanding of the historical origins of the dual consciousness of national and European identity as they developed within the circles of 19th century German writers, theorists, philosophers, musicians, and artists. Two fundamental factors led to the conception of this book: firstly, the recognition that perceptions of German nationhood have been a crucial factor within European consciousness since long before the existence of Germany as a unified State, and, secondly, an acknowledgement that bitter memories of the two World Wars of the 20th century have sometimes obscured the record of Germany’s vast contribution to European cultural and intellectual history. As a collection of essays, this work portrays these developments against the background of a broad spectrum of German literature, music, philosophy, political criticism, art and architecture, also analyzing French and British reactions to German ideas, providing the reader with a broader intellectual and historical context than would be otherwise possible.

Von Riehl's specific views, while of only historical interest today, are crucial to any informed discussion of German social history and would also be valuable for a study of social theory and social science research methods. Von Riehl's description of his countrymen's folkways and social relationships remains a valid and often vivid testimony to one of the pivotal eras in the development of modern Germany. Potentially useful as a supplemental reader for courses in German history and culture or European social history.

Negotiating Nationhood In A Changing Europe – Views From The Press
2002 0-7734-7129-4
This study argues that national identities in Europe go through a process of transformation. The process of European integration, on one hand, and increasing migration flows and the affirmation of cultural identities on the other, have led to a re-definition not only of the content of national identities but also of their nature. Interaction between national, sub-national and transnational forms of collective identification are governance has given way to a more flexible view of nationhood, which affirms uniqueness and difference but also accepts commonality with Others. The empirical material presented in this book provides an overview of collective identities in contemporary Europe and highlights their evolution during the past twenty years. The study concentrates on the national press, because the media are seen as an important carrier of identity discourses. The study of representations of ‘Us, the nation,’ relevant outgroups, and the interaction between them starts with the end of the Cold War era, goes through the collapse of the Communist regimes in Eastern Europe, and reaches the present and the realization of a European Union. Images of the nation in four EU member-states – Britain, Germany, Greece and Italy – are analyzed. Furthermore, their intertwining with or contrast to representations of the European Union, images of other Western and Central-Eastern European nations, as well as ethnic minorities and immigrant communities are highlighted. At the theoretical level, the book explores how transnational and sub-national challenges to the power and legitimacy of the nation are dealt with in the national press discourse. The extent to which national identity is compatible, or indeed, overlaps with notions of a European identity and culture are also discussed. In answering these questions, new conceptual tools for the study of national identity in contemporary European societies are explored.

On Freedom
1992 0-7734-9583-5
This is an analysis of ethical principles based upon "determinism" - a perspective that Schleiermacher defines with care and elaborates with originality. This early treatise (1790-92) is a seminal work for Schleiermacher's career and a significant contribution to the study of ethics. This translation make Schleiermacher's treatise available in English for the first time. The introductory essay traces the history of the text, discusses the philosophical background, and surveys his associated writings. It also provides a comprehensive summary of the treatise's arguments and comments on related secondary literature

On The Highest Good

Patriarchal Politics And Christoph Kress (1484-1535) Of Nuremberg
1992 0-7734-9605-X
This book examines the impact of the patriarchy and the early Reformation upon the life, family, and career of the warrior-statesman Christoph Kress. Involved in over sixty-five diplomatic missions, he was the only Nuremberg political figure to participate in every Imperial Diet between 1518 and 1532. This first full-length study of Kress takes us inside the politics of Nuremberg and the Holy Roman Empire in the turbulent period of the German Peasants' Revolt and religious fissures of the 1520s and early 1530s. It also provides an intriguing case study of the effects of the Lutheran movement upon one of Germany's greatest cities and one of that community's most prominent merchant families, whose dynamics will be of great interest to scholars of religion, politics, psychology, and history.

Peace Movments Between The Wars One Man’s Work For Peace
1998 0-7734-8235-0
In this memoir, William Solzbacher remembers his youth, as a member and leader in the Catholic Youth Movement, the German Youth Movement, and the Esperanto Movement. He worked as organizer, speaker, journalist, editor, and interpreter in many of the movements, and at many of the international conferences striving for peace, reconciliation, and disarmament. The people he knew well included Marc Sangnier, Dr. Max Joseph Metzger, Ernst Thrasolt, Willi Hammelrath, Nikolaus Ehlen, and Professor Benedikt Schmittmann. The memoir takes him through his student days at the Universities of Bonn and Cologne (where his PhD thesis, Walther Rathenau als Sozialphilosoph, was destroyed almost immediately by the Nazis), his work in radio in its early days, his founding and editing of La Juna Batalanto, his publication of two books (both destroyed by the Nazis) travels in southeastern Europe in 1930, a lecture tour of the United States in 1933, exile from Germany, escape from occupied Belgium and, finally, reunion with his family and arrival in the United States on the ‘hellship’ Navemar. These recollections have feeling of immediacy, and the style is fresh, lively and direct. The book will interest students of the period and of the Peace Movement, as well as an intelligent general reader.

Personliches:
2006 0-7734-5795-X
This book includes a remarkable mix of personal documents, most of them previously unpublished. The selection ranges from an early school essay, quotations from his dissertation, reminiscences of friends, Der Stern (a series of privately circulated documents), extracts from diaries at the end of the Second World War, denazification documents, an autobiographical text, reflections on art and artists, aphorisms, his spiritual testament and a short obituary. This collection, partly available in the Deutsches Literaturarchiv, Marbach, is essential to an understanding of Schreyer’s eccentricity, naivety, productivity, obstinancy and openness to others. The previous nineteen volumes of the edition are given an extra dimension with this new view into his personal thoughts and life. The editor’s introduction places these in context and gives an account of collections of Schreyer’s letters (e.g., with Herwarth Walden, Maximilian Tischler, P. Theodor Bogler, the Herder publishing house, and the former Director of the Deutsches Literaturarchiv, Bernhard Zeller. Also included is a 130-page selection of Schreyer’s mainly unpublished letters that close this first collected edition of Schreyer’s works.

Representing German Identity In The New Berlin Republic: Body, Nation, And Place
2004 0-7734-6276-7
This study examines the multiple and conflicting ways in which German national identity is spatially expressed through the material and metaphor of the human body. In particular, it describes the various gendered, sexed, and raced constructions of Germany, as they emerged in the capital city of Berlin since 1989. Based on two ethnographic case studies situated in neighboring urban environments, the Love Parade and the Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Europe, the author shows how bodily representations of post-1989 Germany are fluctuating between the sexualized, demasculinized celebration of multiculturalism and the repeatedly racist, masculinist and even anti-Semitic reconstruction of German nationhood. While the German government is making active efforts to situate the future Berlin Republic within a network of increasingly integrated European nation states, and is involved in sponsoring both the Love Parade and the MMJE, social movements in Berlin are actively supporting and contesting such politics. It is this struggle between government efforts and grassroots politics, and the role of the human body in the political process of constructing collective identities that this book ultimately explores.

Schopenhauer’s Ethics Of Patience: Virtue, Salvation, And Value
2010 0-7734-3800-9
This work explores Schopenhauer’s ethics and central aspects of his philosophy of value, discussing his conception of the individual character, his determinism, his depiction of the states of virtue and salvation, and the value that life has when understood in Schopenhauer’s terms. The book also investigates the nature and depth of Schopenhauer’s pessimism, and the extent to which it is rooted in his metaphysics.

Slavs In Germany – The Sorbian Minority And The German State Since 1945
2000 0-7734-7704-7
This book charts the development of the Soviet-influenced nationalities policy in the German Democratic Republic, using the internal files of the SED (Communist Party) and the Stasi to demonstrate that the German Communists, despite initial attempts by some leading figures to redress the effects of the repressive policies of the Nazi state, ultimately accepted that greater cultural autonomy e for the Sorbians ran counter to their plans for the economic and political restructuring of East German society. The GDR did, however, create Sorbian cultural institutions and the bilingual school system which have survived the upheavals of German unification in 1990.

Texte Des Glaubens
2006 0-7734-5771-2
This book includes introductions and texts that show the writer’s developing understanding of his faith. The analyses of Jakob Böhme, German mystics and Meister Eckehart were essential to his visionary beliefs, without which the series of ‘Schau- und Lesebücher’ on Angels, the Holy Spirit, St. Elisabeth, the Mother of God, the Conqueror of Death and the Devil (including an extra dimension of Schreyer’s prayers), and his book on the Catechism cannot be fully appreciated. Inspired by the reform of the Roman Catholic Liturgy, they point towards theological insights of the Second Vatican Council. The final collection of discussions and reminiscences on Abstract Christian Art in 1962 emphasizes the role of dialogue as an exploratory form of education. Although it was not possible to include the illustrations and detailed comments on these that formed an integral part of the original publications, the introductory texts and selections by themselves reveal a process of active commitment and searching independence characteristic of Schreyer’s life and style. Some illustrations characteristic of his interests as a writer and artist are included, together with an introduction on the texts, and notes on the illustrations.

This book will interest Christian artists, catechists, clergy and laypeople, and it presents for the first time an account of a further aspect of Schreyer’s personal development, especially after World War II.

The Collapse Of Philosophy And Its Rebirth:
2006 0-7734-5594-9
This monograph can be called a forensic study of the lethal effects of the First World War on the European cultural tradition. Philosophy was considered as the foundation of that tradition. The monograph describes this metamorphosis taking as the case study of the problem of the individual, this “nucleus of genuinely German thought” (Troeltsch). The monograph contains a critical analysis of the problem of the individual as it was treated in the 1900s by the pure phenomenology of Edmund Husserl and the transcendental axiology of Heinrich Rickert. Mikhail Bakhtin creates a new approach to the problem of the individual bringing together and transforming the ideas of Marx and Stirner, Lotze and Nietzsche, Simmel and Windelband, William James and Max Weber. The present study may be the first step to demonstrate the potential of Bakhtin’s early work which remains largely undiscovered.

The German - Jewish Dilemma From The Enlightenment To The Shoah
1999 0-7734-8195-8
Essays analyze the principal problems which have affected the evolution of German-Jewish relations since the Enlightenment, showing how the project of emancipation was subverted by powerful countercurrents of antisemitism and anxieties about national identity in a society in the throes of modernization. It emphasizes the importance of social and historical context, offering a differentiated account of the difficulties of emancipation, the sense of alienation which is such a characteristic feature of German-Jewish discourse, and the culmination of various forms of antisemitism in the politics of persecution and genocide. The close focus on specific journals and institutions, writers and texts, reveals the tortuous complexity of German-Jewish relations, with a final emphasis on resistance, survival and commemoration.

The German Pows In South Carolina
2005 0-7734-6282-1
Many rural communities in South Carolina share a place in World War II history that has largely been forgotten. From 1943 to 1946, towns such as Aiken, Florence, Camden, Spartanburg, and York were enthusiastic hosts for a special group of laborers: German prisoners of war. These prisoners from the North African, Sicilian, and European campaigns filled needed jobs, mostly in agriculture, all across the nation. In South Carolina, prison camps were established in rural areas where labor was needed in agriculture, the lumber industry, and a few manufacturing jobs. Prisoner labor was also used on military bases to free civilian and army personnel for front-line duty.

By the end of W.W.II, over 425,000 German, Italian, and Japanese prisoners were interned in prisoner of war camps in the United States. In South Carolina, the War Department established more than twenty camps in seventeen counties housing 8,000 to 11,000 German prisoners. These prisoners provided much needed labor in agricultural communities and were often the only direct connection with the "enemy" experienced on the home front.

This book explores the general policies of the United States toward captured prisoners of war and to analyze their implementation in South Carolina from the perspectives of the American officials, the German prisoners, and the communities that housed the camps. This book examines the history of prisoners of war in South Carolina, focusing on life behind the wire, the labor performed by POWs, and the impact of this labor in South Carolina, the adherence to the Geneva Convention, attitudes that influenced policies for the treatment of prisoners, local reaction to the POWs and their labor, as well as the prisoners' impressions of the conditions in which they were held.

The German Quest For Primal Origins In Art, Culture, And Politics 1900-1933 Die "flucht In Urzustande"
1995 0-7734-9008-6
This major in-depth study - the first of its kind - conclusively demonstrates that the rise of Nazism cannot be understood in socio-economic and politico-ideological terms alone, but as a manifestation of a far larger cultural dynamic: the collective propensity for things mythical and primal, the compulsive quest for origins and roots. The case is argued with specific reference to German Expressionist literature and art, German letters from Hofmannsthal to Thomas Mann, philosophy (notably that of Simmel, Klages, Heidegger), and religious thought. It also probes into the essential drives of the German Youth Movement (1896-1933) and to the so-called völkische ideology. All are analyzed with a view to elicit their common assumptions -- those that coincided with the 'purer' impulses rampant in the rise of the Nazi movement. The study uncovers many unsuspected parallels between art, ideas and politics and is essential reading for anyone concerned with the cultural origins of National Socialism.

The Jesuits And The Third Reich

The Keywords Of Martin Heidegger:
2006 0-7734-5617-1
This book fills an important gap in the literature of Heidegger through its extensive, detailed “key word analytic” of keywords in Heidegger’s 1927 Sein und Zeit, a central philosophical work of the last century. This expository and critical analytic focuses on foundational terms in Sein und Zeit: their semantic role, clarity and coherence, requiring verbal and conceptual translation. Included are detailed discussions of over 100 key terms (the most extensive analysis of which is the term ‘Dasein’), each of which has been carefully defined with convincing arguments for the English translations provided. The work contains a list of abbreviations and an extensive bibliography.

The Kohl Government And German Reunification Crisis And Foreign Policy
1997 0-7734-2296-X
This study expands the existing body of crisis theory. It examines the dynamics of the first post-Cold War crisis and provides insight into how this new international context affects decision-making, as well as national and international relationships. While previous works focused primarily on threat and the dynamics of superpower crises in a Cold War international system, this study highlights the opportunity dimension of a crisis, and how it can be exploited by local actors in a post-Cold War context. Past systematic analyses of foreign policy decision-making concentrated primarily on the US. This study fills a research gap by examining these processes in the West German Kohl government. It contributes to a better understanding of how reunification was achieved. Understanding contemporary German foreign policy is important because it has implications for alliance relationships and provides cues about the future course of Germany in the international system.

The Life Of Karl Anton (1887-1956)
2001 0-7734-7569-9
Karl Anton, a patriotic German who had participated in World War I (as a young minister, he spoke to the frontline troops, carried relief packages to the soldiers on behalf of the German Red Cross, and gave inspirational sermons to the civilians at home), discerned the evil of the National Socialist regime of the Third Reich and turned decisively away from it at great personal cost. His life reflects a strong moral position under adverse conditions (the discarding of his career and enforced isolation) and shows a man whose personal life, scholarship, preaching, and personal ministry reflect a deep commitment to a different set of values. The most significant gift Anton made to succeeding generations is contained in the work he did in organizing and protecting the famous Franz Hauser Bach collection, and in his final definitive article on the significance of that collection. With photographs.

The Multiplicities Of Memories In Contemporary German Literature: How Photographs Are Used To Reconstruct Narratives Of History

The incorporation of photography into German literary texts dealing with the years between 1933 and 1945 is an important innovative technique that offers insights relating to questions of truth, authenticity, and opportunities for personal engagement in the visual and textual representations of the catastrophe that still haunts us today.

This book fills a void in contemporary scholarship by providing an in-depth analyses of three major German-language writers and their literary reflections of the Holocaust. It examines important insights into the limits of memory on the effects of this historical catastrophe on those born afterwards and the blending of text and image in the search for truth and authenticity.

The Standing Of The German Cinema In Great Britain After 1945
2003 0-7734-6786-6
This is the first study available of the standing in Great Britain of the post-war German cinema, seen here as part of the wider issue of foreign-language film distribution and exhibition in the UK. An analysis of the relevant structural conditions of the industry as well as public attitudes toward non-English-language cinema is followed by a detailed reconstruction of the way films from both West and East Germany have been made available to British audiences, including an assessment of how they have been promoted both commercially and culturally. The final chapter aims at ascertaining to what extent the critical response to contemporary German features is a reflection of the general British perception of the films’ country of origin. An extensive appendix presents a list of some 800 feature films, with details of their screening on British television and in the cinema over five decades, as well a bibliography that includes the details of hundreds of film reviews, mainly from newspapers and specialist publications.

The State Acting Academy Of East Berlin – A History Of Actor Training From Max Reinhardt’s Schauspielschule To The Hochschule Fur Schauspielkunst “ernst Busch”

This study deals with the establishment of Reinhardt's school, the training that took place until WWII (including the implementation of nazi officials at the institution), the program of study during the German Democratic Republic, and finally the Hochschule für Schauspielkunst "Ernst Busch". By offering a detailed account of actor training methods which existed shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the study examines the shift in emphasis from a socialist Realistic school of acting, as one of the state institutes of the GDR, to a more eclectic, broad-based approach. As witneessed in 1993, the tprofram showed the influence of Reinhardt's theories of acting as well as those of Stanislaviski and Brecht. Several of the schools' main teachers and leaders throughout its almost ninety year history are profiled, with their corresponding theoretical views included.

The Transformation Of Science In Germany At The Beginning Of The Nineteenth Century: Physics, Mathematics, Poetry, And Philosophy
2013 0-7734-4537-4
Many books have looked at early nineteenth century science through the lens of the whole of Europe. This book takes a solidly Germanic view of natural science, depicting a view of natural science. It dismantles the well-worn cliché of a speculative philosophy and an empirical natural science that began to move further and further away from each other, ultimately becoming irreconcilable. Such an interpretation of the physical-philosophical discourse into different disciplines imposes the dualistic viewpoint of our own time onto an era where erecting such categorical boundaries between knowledge areas was completely foreign. A discussion of physics in the early nineteenth century drew no distinction between itself and philosophy, which is the biggest contribution of this volume.

Such an interpretation of the physical-philosophical discourse into different disciplines imposes the dualistic viewpoint of our own time onto an era where erecting such categorical boundaries between knowledge areas was completely foreign. A discussion of physics in the early nineteenth century drew no distinction between itself and philosophy, which is the biggest contribution of this volume.

The Trinitarian Axiom Of Karl Rahner:
2006 0-7734-5584-1
The widely-accepted Grundaxiom of Karl Rahner’s doctrine of the Trinity, “The economic Trinity is the immanent Trinity and vice versa,” functions in contemporary theology as a means of reconciling the seemingly contradictory claims that (a) God has revealed the doctrine of the Trinity to the Church, and (b) God has not disclosed this doctrine verbally in Scripture. Rahner’s Grundaxiom thus serves to legitimate theologies of the Trinity that do not presuppose the verbal inspiration of Scripture.

The present study, by contrast, indirectly challenges the viability of such theologies by subjecting the Grundaxiom to a thoroughgoing, immanent critique. On the grounds that Rahner does not successfully warrant his axiom and that the axiom itself implicitly conflicts with key elements of Rahner’s Trinitarian theology, this study argues that Rahner fails to supply a credible account of how human beings learn of the existence of the immanent Trinity. A more robust theology of scriptural inspiration than Rahner’s, this work suggests, may suffice to remedy this defect in Rahner’s theology of the Trinity.

The Varieties Of Protestantism In Nazi Germany Five Theopolitical Positions
1990 0-88946-790-0
Examines the history of Christianity in the area of the relationship between theology and politics, particularly as applied to the encounter of German Protestantism and National Socialism, a topic usually treated as the German church struggle. Goes beyond the narrow and limited concerns of the church struggle by both historically deepening and methodologically broadening the perspective through a combined historical and systematic approach. Feige's five-pronged typology of Protestant responses to National Socialism opens up a comparative vantage point from which to address the strengths and weaknesses of the individual responses more fully. The five types are represented by the confessional position of Karl Barth, the neo-conservative Paul Althaus, the National Socialist Emanuel Hirsch, the liberal Martin Rade, and the religious socialist Paul Tillich. The typology is a heuristic device in the sense that equal attention is given to all five types.
