Other Septembers, Many Americas - Ariel Dorfman Preview:

"Let me tell you, America, of the hopes I had for you," Dorfman writes after the fall of the Twin Towers, remembering back to an earlier September 11 in 1973, when he was on the staff of Salvador Allende, then president of Chile, the day he was removed from office and murdered in a coup in which the U.S. government was complicit. "Beware the plague of victimhood, America . . . Nothing is more dangerous than a giant who is afraid." Included in Other Septembers, Many Americas are major essays about the America south of the border, exploring the ambiguous relationship between power and literature and touching on topics as diverse as bilingualism, barbarians, and video games. In the essay "A Different Drum," Dorfman asks, "Isn’t it time, as war approaches yet again, to tell each other stories of peace over and over again?" Over and over in these jewel-like essays, his best shorter work of the last quarter-century, Dorfman weaves together sentiment and politics with his sense of the larger historical questions, reminding Americans of our unique role in the world, so different from the one put forward by the current administration: the power to resist and to imagine..

Ein Jahr danach - Zu den Geschehnissen des elften Septembers 2001 - Timo Freudenberger Preview:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Region: USA, Note: 1,70, Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg (Institut für Politische Wissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Amerikanische Außenpolitik, 15 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Man könnte meinen, wir leben in einer Zeit, in der die Menschen nicht mehr wissen, was Gut und Böse bedeuten. Es scheint, dass das Verständnis der Kulturen untereinander schlechter ist denn je zuvor. Ist der „Zusammenprall der Kulturen“1 an diesem 11. September 2001 geschehen? Ich denke schon. Die barbarischen Anschläge auf die Vereinigten Staaten im vergangenen Jahr waren ein Zeichen dafür. Das für Menschen Unbegreifliche ist geschehen, die Vereinigten Staaten – und mit ihnen ein großer Teil der westlichen Welt – sind an ihren empfindlichsten Stellen getroffen worden. Die Wahrzeichen für wirtschaftliche und militärische Macht wurden in wenigen Stunden vernichtet: das World Trade Center und das Pentagon lagen in Schutt und Asche. Die Welt stand fassungslos vor dem Ausmaß eines solchen terroristischen Gewaltaktes. Die westlichen Mächte rückten enger zusammen und forderten ein massives Vorgehen gegen den institutionalisierten Terrorismus. Somit entstand ein Bündnis gegen den Terror2, welches von den Vereinigten Staaten ausging und den Hauptschuldigen, samt seiner Anhänger und Organisationen, Usama bin Ladin3, in Afghanistan zu fassen suchte. Schließlich rückten die Amerikaner in Afghanistan ein und bekämpften das von ihnen für den Terror verantwortlich gemachte Taliban-Regime. Diese Arbeit wird zunächst einen detaillierten Überblick zu den Geschehnissen des 11. Septembers 2001 geben. Anschließend werde ich die außenpolitischen Konsequenzen (welche Veränderungen gab es?) auf Grund der terroristischen Akte gegen die Vereinigten Staaten untersuchen. In einer abschließenden Schlussbetrachtung werden eine kritische Einschätzung der Ereignisse und deren Konsequenzen, sowie ein Ausblick auf mögliche Weiterentwicklungen folgen..

Die Inszenierung der Anschläge des 11. Septembers 2001 in den US-Spielfilmen "United 93" (2006) und "World Trade Center" (2006) - Dominik Sindern Preview:

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Film und Fernsehen, Note: 2,3, Universität Passau, 13 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der 11. September 2001 ist somit aus weltpolitischer Sicht der wohl prägendste Moment des jungen 21. Jahrhunderts. Aufgrund der Tragweite der Ereignisse wurden die Anschläge medial sehr umfassend untersucht und diskutiert. Dies geschah vorerst hauptsächlich in Form der Dokumentation und nicht in Form der Fiktion, da die Dokumentation ein so hoch sensibilisiertes Thema mit dem objektiveren Abstand betrachten kann. Die Anschläge bewirkten in Hollywood sogar zu Beginn gerade das Gegenteil: In einem Trailer zum Film Spiderman (2002) von Sam Raimi spannte Spiderman ursprünglich ein Netz zwischen den beiden Türmen des World Trade Centers. Dieser Trailer wurde aufgrund der Anschläge zurückgezogen. Lediglich kleinere Independentproduktionen richten ihren Fokus schon kurz nach dem 11. September 2001 auf die Anschläge. Die Produktionsschmieden aus Hollywood trauten sich erst fünf Jahre nach den Anschlägen direkt an die Thematik heran. Der erste Film war „United 93“ von dem britischen Regisseur Paul Greengrass im Jahr 2006. Der Film zeigt die Vorgänge in dem vierten entführten Flugzeug, das bei Shanksville Pensylvania abgestürzt war und wie die Anschläge in den Flugleitzentralen registriert wurden. Der zweite Film „World Trade Center“ von Oliver Stone, ebenfalls aus dem Jahr 2006, zeigt die Anschläge aus der Perspektive zweier verschütteter Polizisten und deren Rettung. Diese beiden Filme werden in dieser Arbeit näher untersucht..

Oxford Weather and Climate since 1767 - Stephen Burt,Tim Burt Preview:

The British have always been obsessed by the weather. Thomas Hornsby, who founded the Radcliffe Observatory in Oxford in 1772, began weather observations at the site. They continue daily to this day, unbroken since 14 November 1813, the longest continuous series of single-site weather records in the British Isles, and one of the longest in the world. Oxford Weather and Climate since 1767 represents the first full publication of this newly-digitised record of English weather, which will appeal to interested readers and climate researchers alike. The book celebrates this unique and priceless Georgian legacy by describing and explaining how the records were (and still are) made, examines monthly and seasonal weather patterns across two centuries, and considers the context of long-term climate change. Local documentary sources and contemporary photographs bring the statistics to life, from the clouds of 'smoak' from the Great Fire of London in 1666 to the most recent floods. This book explores all the weather extremes, from bitter cold winters to hot, dry summers, bringing to life the painstaking measurements made over the last 250 years..

Lost in September - Kathleen Winter Preview:

Long-awaited, thrilling new fiction from Kathleen Winter, whose previous novel Annabel was a finalist for the Scotiabank Giller, Governor General's Award, Writers' Trust and Orange prizes, was a Globe and Mail "Best Book" and a New York Times "Notable," and was a #1 bestselling Canada Reads selection. From one of Canada's most exciting writers comes a gripping, compassionate and stunning novel that overturns and rewrites history. Enter the world of Jimmy--a tall, red-haired, homeless thirty-something ex-soldier, battered by PTSD--as he camps out on the streets of modern-day Montreal, trying to remember and reclaim his youth. While his past is something of an enigma, even to himself, the young man bears a striking resemblance to General James Wolfe, "Conqueror of Canada" and "Hero of Quebec," who died on the Plains of Abraham in 1759. As a young soldier in his twenties, the historical James Wolfe (1727-1759) was granted a short and much longed-for leave to travel to Paris to study poetry, music and dance--three of his passions. But in that very year, 1752, the British Empire abandoned the Julian calendar for the Gregorian, and every citizen of England lost eleven days: September 2 was followed by September 14. These lost eleven days happened to occur during the period that Wolfe had been granted for his leave. Despondent and bitter, he never got the chance to explore his artistic bent, and seven short years later, on the anniversary of this foreshortened leave, he died on the Plains of Abraham. Now, James is getting his eleven days back . . . but instead of the salons of 18th century Paris, he's wandering the streets of present-day Montreal and Quebec City, not as "the Hero of Quebec" but as a damaged war veteran wracked with anguish. Much like George Saunders in Lincoln in the Bardo, award-winning author Kathleen Winter takes a brief, intensely personal incident in the life of a famous historical figure, and using her incomparable gifts as a fiction writer, powerfully reimagines him. Here is a wrenching, unforgettable portrait--like none you have ever seen or read--of one of the most well-known figures in Canadian history..

The Fortnight in September - R.C. Sherriff Preview:

This charming, timeless classic about a family of five setting out on their annual seaside vacation is “the most uplifting, life-affirming novel I can think of...the beautiful dignity to be found in everyday living has rarely been captured more delicately” (Kazuo Ishiguro). Meet the Stevens family, as they prepare to embark on their yearly holiday to the coast of England. Mr. and Mrs. Stevens first made the trip to Bognor Regis on their honeymoon, and the tradition has continued ever since. They stay in the same guest house and follow the same carefully honed schedule—now accompanied by their three children, twenty-year-old Mary, seventeen-year-old Dick, and little brother Ernie. Arriving in Bognor they head to Seaview, the guesthouse where they stay every year. It’s a bit shabbier than it once was—the landlord has died and his wife is struggling as the number of guests dwindles every year. But the family finds bliss in booking a slightly bigger cabana, with a balcony, and in their rediscovery of the familiar places they visit every year. Mr. Stevens goes on his annual walk across the downs, reflecting on his life, his worries and disappointments, and returns refreshed. Mrs. Stevens treasures an hour spent sitting alone with her medicinal glass of port. Mary has her first small taste of romance. And Dick pulls himself out of the malaise he’s sunk into since graduation, resolving to work towards a new career. The Stevenses savor every moment of their holiday, aware that things may not be the same next year. Delightfully nostalgic and soothing, The Fortnight in September is an extraordinary novel about ordinary people enjoying life’s simple pleasures..

Ariel Dorfman - Sophia McClennen Preview:

Ariel Dorfman: An Aesthetics of Hope is a critical introduction to the life and work of the internationally renowned writer, activist, and intellectual Ariel Dorfman. It is the first book about the author in English and the first in any language to address the full range of his writing to date. Consistently challenging assumptions and refusing preconceived categories, Dorfman has published in every major literary genre (novel, short story, poetry, drama); adopted literary forms including the picaresque, epic, noir, and theater of the absurd; and produced a vast amount of cultural criticism. His works are read as part of the Latin American literary canon, as examples of human rights literature, as meditations on exile and displacement, and within the tradition of bilingual, cross-cultural, and ethnic writing. Yet, as Sophia A. McClennen shows, when Dorfman’s extensive writings are considered as an integrated whole, a cohesive aesthetic emerges, an “aesthetics of hope” that foregrounds the arts as vital to our understanding of the world and our struggles to change it. To illuminate Dorfman’s thematic concerns, McClennen chronicles the writer’s life, including his experiences working with Salvador Allende and his exile from Chile during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, and she provides a careful account of his literary and cultural influences. Tracing his literary career chronologically, McClennen interprets Dorfman’s less-known texts alongside his most well-known works, which include How to Read Donald Duck, the pioneering critique of Western ideology and media culture co-authored with Armand Mattelart, and the award-winning play Death and the Maiden. In addition, McClennen provides two valuable appendices: a chronology documenting important dates and events in Dorfman’s life, and a full bibliography of his work in English and in Spanish..

Legendary money manager Ken Fisher outlines the most common—and costly—mistakes investors make. Small cap stocks are best for all time. Bunk! A trade deficit is bad for markets. Bunk! Stocks can't rise on high unemployment. Bunk! Many investors think they are safest following widely accepted Wall Street wisdom—but much of Wall Street wisdom isn't so wise. In fact, it can be costly bunk. In Debunkery: Learn It, Do It, and Profit From It—Seeing Through Wall Street's Money-Killing Myths, Ken Fisher—named one of the 30 most influential individuals of the last three decades by Investment Advisor magazine—details why so many investors fail to get the long-term results they desire. The short answer is many investors fail to question if what they believe is true—and are therefore blinded by tradition, biases, ideology, or any number of cognitive errors. Your goal as an investor shouldn't be to be error-free—that's impossible. Rather, to be more successful, you should aim to lower your error rate. Debunkery gets you started by debunking 50 common myths—but that's just the beginning. It also gives you the tools you need to continue to do your own debunkery for the rest of your investing career..

Hidden Histories of Gordonia - Martin Legassick Preview:

The Gordonia region of the Northern Cape province has received relatively little attention from historians. In Hidden Histories of Gordonia: Land dispossession and resistance in the Northern Cape, 1800–1990, Martin Legassick explores aspects of the generally unknown ‘brown’ and ‘black’ history of the region. Emphasising the lives of ordinary people, his writing is also in part an exercise in ‘applied history’ – historical writing with a direct application to people’s lives in the present. Tracing the indigenous history of Gordonia as well as the northward movement of Basters and whites from the western Cape through Bushmanland to the Orange River, the book presents accounts of family histories, episodes of indigenous resistance to colonisation, and studies of the ultimate imposition of racial segregation and land dispossession on the inhabitants of the region. A recurrent theme is the question of identity and how the extreme ethnic fluidity and social mixing apparent in earlier times crystallised in the colonial period into racial identities, until with final conquest came imposed racial classification..

The First Mythology - Alfred Sylvester Jr. Preview:

For over 35 years I have searched books and the past trying to solve Alchemy! The magic of the Philosophers Stone. Turn lead to gold! A cure all medicine! The fountain of youth! Was it just wishful thinking, or is there a basis of fact? I soon learned the subject had lasted as a rumor, mythology, or perhaps just as an idea. Something I believed had to be there, something was overlooked. Now, it seems that the something had not been overlooked, instead was hidden from the masses for many reasons. That something will astound you, will surprise you yet you will know it is truth. Who would have thought that Genesis was really about the yearly cycle? That the process of making the stone is really about the understanding of the creation. Also that the stone is about how nature can and does handle matter. Now with art (man and nature), I found more can be done with matter and so perfect it. You will see that matter handled correctly is purified over time and within shape. That shape is a glass pyramid oven. You may know of it as 'the firmament.' This is the magic, and produces a substance that convinced man of God! You will see that this power of generation is the God of early man, and finding the purified matter led to several things. First the process of Genesis, though I am not sure what it originally was called. That process led to astrology, and the naming and defined understanding of those constellations passing overhead. Finally it led to a religion, which was that of Isis and Osiris. When understood you will see that those are the religions of today, and little has changed. You will then know why all of this was hidden from you! Lastly you will know the All and want to make this substance. You will understand that you're a part of, and maintained by this system. That we need to maintain it before we cause it to destroys us! This is then Alchemy understood, the enchanting power of transformation..

Poles in Defence of Britain - Robert Gretzyngier Preview:

The little-known WWII story of the Polish Air Force fliers who played a crucial role in the Battle of Britain and beyond. To the Polish volunteers who flew and fought so brilliantly and tenaciously throughout the Battle of Britain, the United Kingdom was known as “Last Hope Island.” Many lost their lives, such as Antoni Ostowicz. Many achieved glory and became aces—such as Glowacki, Skalski, and Witorzenc. The RAF came to depend on these men, with over one hundred Polish pilots supporting almost thirty fighter squadrons, most especially 302, 303, and 307 (night fighter). The result of years of research, Robert Gretzyngier’s book includes detailed combat descriptions, personal accounts from combat reports, memoirs, and diaries from the Polish, British, and German perspective, with in-depth biographical data of all Polish pilots, including full RAF and PAF careers and much tabular material in appendix form. Poles in Defence of Britain is a tremendous account of Polish contribution in those hectic days before the RAF began to take the offensive across the Channel, with many previously unpublished photographs from private collections..

He soon discovers his apartment and car have also been burglarized. Someone has gone to great lengths and risk to get something from Ben.

Reporting from Washington - Donald A. Ritchie Preview:

Donald Ritchie offers a vibrant chronicle of news coverage in our nation's capital, from the early days of radio and print reporting and the heyday of the wire services to the brave new world of the Internet. Beginning with 1932, when a newly elected FDR energized the sleepy capital, Ritchie highlights the dramatic changes in journalism that have occurred in the last seven decades. We meet legendary columnists--including Walter Lippmann, Joseph Alsop, and Drew Pearson --as well as the great investigative reporters, from Paul Y. Anderson to the two green Washington Post reporters who launched the political story of the decade--Woodward and Bernstein. We read of the rise of radio news--fought tooth and nail by the print barons--and of such pioneers as Edward R. Murrow, H. V. Kaltenborn, and Elmer Davis. Ritchie also offers a vivid history of TV news, from the early days of Meet the Press, to Huntley and Brinkley and Walter Cronkite, to the cable revolution led by C-SPAN and CNN. In addition, he compares political news on the Internet to the alternative press of the '60s and '70s; describes how black reporters slowly broke into the white press corps (helped mightily by FDR's White House); discusses path-breaking woman reporters such as Sarah McClendon and Helen Thomas, and much more. From Walter Winchell to Matt Drudge, the people who cover Washington politics are among the most colorful and influential in American news. Reporting from Washington offers an unforgettable portrait of these figures as well as of the dramatic changes in American journalism in the twentieth century..

Earning the Rockies - Robert D. Kaplan Preview:

An incisive portrait of the American landscape that shows how geography continues to determine America’s role in the world Book Club Pick for Now Read This, from PBS NewsHour and The New York Times • “There is more insight here into the Age of Trump than in bushels of political-horse-race journalism.”—The New York Times Book Review (Editors’ Choice) At a time when there is little consensus about who we are and what we should be doing with our power overseas, a return to the elemental truths of the American landscape is urgently needed. In Earning the Rockies, New York Times bestselling author Robert D. Kaplan undertakes a cross-country journey, traversing a rich and varied landscape that still remains the primary source of American power. Traveling west, in the same direction as the pioneers, Kaplan witnesses both prosperity and decline, and reexamines the history of westward expansion in a new light: as a story not just of genocide and individualism but also of communalism and a respect for the limits of a water-starved terrain. Concluding at the edge of the Pacific Ocean with a gripping description of an anarchic world, Earning the Rockies shows how America’s foreign policy response ought to be rooted in its own geographical situation. Praise for Earning the Rockies “Unflinchingly honest . . . a lens-changing vision of America’s role in the world . . . a jewel of a book that lights the path ahead.”—Secretary of Defense James Mattis “A sui generis writer . . . America’s East Coast establishment has only one Robert Kaplan, someone as fluently knowledgeable about the Balkans, Iraq, Central Asia and West Africa as he is about Ohio and Wyoming.”—Financial Times “Kaplan has pursued stories in places as remote as Yemen and Outer Mongolia. In Earning the Rockies, he visits a place almost as remote to many Americans: these United States. . . . The author’s point is a good one: America is formed, in part, by a geographic setting that is both sanctuary and watchtower.”—The Wall Street Journal “A brilliant reminder of the impact of America’s geography on its strategy. . . . Kaplan’s latest contribution should be required reading.”—Henry A. Kissinger “A text both evocative and provocative for readers who like to think … In his final sections, Kaplan discusses in scholarly but accessible detail the significant role that America has played and must play in this shuddering world.”—Kirkus Reviews.

Imperial Japanese Navy Antisubmarine Escorts 1941-45 - Mark Stille Preview:

In 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) went to war with a marginal anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capability. This was a lamentable state of affairs for a nation dependent upon imports to sustain its war economy. There were only a few purpose-built ASW escorts available at the start of the war and these were augmented by a handful of second-class destroyers and a dozen torpedo boats. Once the magnitude of the threat to Japan's shipping became fully apparent in 1943, the IJN made plans for mass production of ASW escorts. These arrived in 1944, but could not stop the massacre of Japanese shipping by increasingly bold and effective American submarines. This volume will detail the history, weapons and tactics of the IJN's ASW escorts. These include the Momi class of second-rate destroyers, the Tomodzuru and Ootori classes of torpedo boars, and the several types of ASW escorts built from 1937 up to the end of the war..

Utopia and Terror in Contemporary American Fiction - Judie Newman Preview:

This book examines the quest for/failure of Utopia across a range of contemporary American/transnational fictions in relation to terror and globalization through authors such as Susan Choi, André Dubus, Dalia Sofer, and John Updike. While recent critical thinkers have reengaged with Utopia, the possibility of terror — whether state or non-state, external or homegrown — shadows Utopian imaginings. Terror and Utopia are linked in fiction through the exploration of the commodification of affect, a phenomenon of a globalized world in which feelings are managed, homogenized across cultures, exaggerated, or expunged according to a dominant model. Narrative approaches to the terrorist offer a means to investigate the ways in which fiction can resist commodification of affect, and maintain a reasoned but imaginative vision of possibilities for human community. Newman explores topics such as the first American bestseller with a Muslim protagonist, the links between writer and terrorist, the work of Iranian-Jewish Americans, and the relation of race and religion to Utopian thought..

The children are not her own; her husband is straining to break free from the servile security of the police force; and her own life, threatened by illness, seems to be losing the last vestiges of its purpose. Moving between tragedy and savage comedy, desperation and joy, John McGahern's first novel is one of haunting power. 'The details are evoked with a scrupulous yet enhancing accuracy that reminds one of the young Joyce. He is astonishingly successful in penetrating the mind of a mature woman confronted with pain and death. Mr McGahern is the real thing' Spectator.
