Book Excerpt :

Karl Rossman has been banished by his parents to America, following a family scandal. There, with unquenchable optimism, he throws himself into the strange experiences that lie before him as he slowly makes his way into the interior of the great continent. Although Kafka's first novel (begun in 1911 and never finished), can be read as a menacing allegory of modern life, it is also infused with a quite un-Kafkaesque blitheness and sunniness, brought to life in this lyrical translation that returns to the original manuscript of the book.

Book Short Summary:

"Philip Roth bekräftar än en gång sin ställning som en av de mest angelägna amerikanska nutidsskildrarna." Blekinge Läns Tidning Inför det amerikanska presidentvalet 1940 fick flygarhjälten och nazistsympatisören Charles A Lindbergh frågan om han ville ställa upp som det republikanska partiets kandidat. Han tackade nej. Vad hade hänt om han tackat ja? I Philip Roths nya roman accepterar Lindbergh att bli republikanernas presidentkandidat. Han vinner en jordskredsseger mot Franklin D Roosevelt och förhandlar dessutom fram en överenskommelse med Hitler. De antesemitiska krafterna i landet vinner snabbt terräng. Huvudperson i boken är den judiske pojken Philip, som bor i New Jersey med sin familj. Han tvingas se hur tillvaron för honom och landets alla andra judar blir alltmer ansträngd. Förändringarna smyger sig på. Diskrimineringen blir mer och mer uppenbar, våldet trappas upp och livet blir aldrig mer detsamma. "Författaren målar med sin mästerliga pensel en bild av en fantasi, vilken ändå är så påtagligt närvarande, att man även efter avslutad läsning, måhända med rätta, fortfarande upplever känslan av, att det kanske var så här det var." Blekinge Läns Tidning "... en ruggig roman med en stark psykologisk spänning." Handelsnytt

Book Short Summary:

Co-published with the Waterloo Centre for German Studies For centuries, large numbers of German-speaking people have emigrated from settlements in Europe to other countries and continents. In German Diasporic Experiences: Identity, Migration, and Loss, more than forty international contributors describe and discuss aspects of the history, language, and culture of these migrant groups, individuals, and their descendants. Part I focuses on identity, with essays exploring the connections among language, politics, and the construction of histories—national, familial, and personal—in German-speaking diasporic communities around the world. Part II deals with migration, examining such issues as German migrants in postwar Britain, German refugees and forced migration, and the immigrant as a fictional character, among others. Part III examines the idea of loss in diasporic experience with essays on nationalization, language change or loss, and the reshaping of cultural identity. Essays are revised versions of papers presented at an international conference held at the University of Waterloo in August 2006, organized by the Waterloo Centre for German Studies, and reflect the multidisciplinarity and the global perspective of this field of study.

Book Short Summary:

The recent 50th anniversaries of the first human spaceflights by the Soviet Union and the United States, and the 30th anniversary of the launching of the first U.S. Space Shuttle mission, have again brought to mind the pioneering accomplishments of the first quarter century of humans in space. Historians, political scientists and others have extensively examined the technical, programmatic and political history of human spaceflight from the 1960s to the 1980s, but work is only beginning on the social and cultural history of the pioneering era. One rapidly developing area of recent scholarship is the examination of the images of spacefarers in the media, government propaganda and popular culture. How was space travel imagined in the visual media on the cusp of human spaceflights? How were astronauts and cosmonauts represented in official and quasi-official media portraits? And how were those images reproduced and transformed by in the imagination of film-makers, movie producers, popular writers, and novelists? Spacefarers addresses these questions with nine contributions from scholars in the field of aerospace history, Russian and American history, and English literature. These essays are preceded by an introduction by the editor, who discusses their place in the historiography of spaceflight and social and cultural history. The book will have potential appeal to a wide variety of scholars in history, literature and the social sciences and will include a number of striking visual images.

Book Short Summary:

Since 1997, FORUM is an integral part of the journal landscape of European Studies. In addition to facts of contemporary history, it offers deep insights into the history of ideas, reflects current discussions, and provides reviews of books on Central and Eastern European history. Especially on the history of ideas and contemporary history it offers more than ?just? history -- e.g. interdisciplinary discussions by political scientists, literary, legal, and economic scholars and philosophers. FORUM sees itself as a bridge between East and West. Through the translation and publication of documents and contributions from Russian, Polish, and Czech researchers it offers the Western reader insight into the scientific discourse within Eastern Europe.Volume 18, Issue 1: The way the Federal Republic of Germany dealt with its past is seen by some as a role model for many post-authoritarian and post-totalitarian transition countries in East and West, despite some downsides of the long process of coping with the past after the German ?zero hour?. The current FORUM issue focuses on the comparison of the specifics of German memory culture with those of the Eastern European countries, especially Poland and Russia, since the beginning of their de-Stalinization debates.Seit 1997 ist das FORUM fester Bestandteil der Zeitschriftenlandschaft der Osteuropaforschung. Neben Fakten der Zeitgeschichte bietet es tiefe Einblicke in die Ideengeschichte, spiegelt aktuelle Diskussionen wider und liefert Rezensionen zu Werken der mittel- und osteuropäischen Zeitgeschichte. Gerade in den Rubriken Ideengeschichte und Zeitgeschichte bietet es mehr als "nur" Geschichte -- fächerübergreifend kommen u.a. Politologen, Literatur-, Rechts- und Wirtschaftswissenschaftler sowie Philosophen zu Wort. Das FORUM versteht sich als Brücke zwischen Ost und West. Durch die Übersetzung und Veröffentlichung von Dokumenten und Beiträgen aus dem Russischen, Polnischen und Tschechischen bietet es dem westlichen Leser Einblicke in den wissenschaftlichen Diskurs Osteuropas. Heft 1/2014: Der lange Abschied vom totalitären Erbe Das Modell der bundesrepublikanischen Vergangenheitsbewältigung gilt als Vorbild für viele postautoritäre bzw. posttotalitäre Transformationsstaaten in Ost und West, ungeachtet mancher Schattenseiten des langwierigen Prozesses der deutschen Vergangenheitsbewältigung nach der "Stunde Null". Das aktuelle Forum-Heft vergleicht in seinem thematischen Schwerpunkt die Spezifika der deutschen Erinnerungskultur mit denjenigen der osteuropäischen Länder, vor allem Polens und Russlands, seit dem Beginn der Entstalinisierungsdebatten.

  • Pdf File: images-of-america-in-scandinavia.pdf

Book Short Summary:

The subject of Images of America in Scandinavia, the first comprehensive study of its kind, is as multifaceted, complex, and overwhelming as America or the United States, itself. It concerns the nature and function, reality and fiction of such images in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden past and present. The book is intended to be a source of solid information as well as a starting point for further inquiries into its cultural territory. Part of its focus is on images of America rooted in printed sources, but, in addition, general surveys of other cultural signs of America in the Scandinavian countries present a broader picture and provide some of the background for the predominantly literary images. Issues such as government and politics, popular and vanguard music and art, and socio-cultural institutions intermittently come to the fore. Framing the volume's three pairs of national surveys is an introductory chapter, which addresses the entire subject from a bird's-eye view, and a concluding chapter, which, by contrast, delves into the cross-fire of sentiments defining people whose images of America, are both American and Scandinavian. The discussion of America as perceived in Scandinavia sheds new light on intriguing inter-Scandinavian cultural distinctions and borderlines. Countless books and articles, methods and theories, have been devoted to the study of national and cultural identity. Still, the exchanges between such identities and the images they engender - so indispensable for the participants in a global culture - remain clouded by many misconceptions. Images of America in Scandinavia whose editors and authors all have Scandinavian backgrounds, will contribute an improved understanding of the cultural interplay between Scandinavia and the United States of America.

Book Short Summary:

Finalist for the American Jewish Studies cateogry of the 2016 National Jewish Book Awards Early in the 1800s, American Jews consciously excluded rabbinic forces from playing a role in their community's development. By the final decades of the century, ordained rabbis were in full control of America's leading synagogues and large sectors of American Jewish life. How did this shift occur? Who Rules the Synagogue? explores how American Jewry in the nineteenth century was transformed from a lay dominated community to one whose leading religious authorities were rabbis. Zev Eleff traces the history of this revolution, culminating in the Pittsburgh rabbinical conference of 1885 and the commotion caused by it. Previous scholarship has chartered the religious history of American Judaism during this era, but Eleff reinterprets this history through the lens of religious authority. In so doing, he offers a fresh view of the story of American Judaism with the aid of never-before-mined sources and a comprehensive review of periodicals and newspapers. Eleff weaves together the significant episodes and debates that shaped American Judaism during this formative period, and places this story into the larger context of American religious history and modern Jewish history.

Book Short Summary:

This volume contains a selection of papers which have been revised and extended for publication from two working groups held at conferences at Galway (1992) and Göteborg (1993) which celebrated the quincentenary of Columbus' discovery of America in 1492. The pre-Columbian period of language contact is covered by articles on Old Norse in the Faroes, Scotland and Ireland, the Shetland dialect and Norn, and placenames in Iceland and Greenland. The articles on the post-Columbian period are wide-ranging and cover, in the Scandinavian context, the Scandinavian emigration, American Swedish, American Finnish, Swedish-Spanish and various aspects of Norwegian in America and also in Spitzbergen; in the British colonial context, English dialects in New England, Scottish Gaelic in Nova Scotia and Scots in North America (Maryland, the Appalachians and Virginia); in the context of the later continental mass emigration, American Dutch, Texas German, Croatian and Italian. Two papers deal with reverse emigration, that of Sicilian and Calabrian dialects, and the special case of Krio in Sierra Leone.

Book Short Summary:

Does social science matter? Yes. Why does social science matter? It provides humans with knowledge, in form of research and theory, that allows us to understand our surroundings and how the social realm works. In addition to the theoretical and empirical understanding of the social realm, social science allows us to anticipate and shape aspects of future social developments and outcomes – e.g., demography and human security and social unrests; or actions and potential reactions between and among individuals, state-actors and non-state actors and their implication on the social realm. Thus, social science matters due to its canon of knowledge which empowers humans with tools to not just understand the social realm but also mediate in social dynamics and suggest policy reforms. Humans keen on the social science develop practical skills, distinctly valued in all forms of social dynamics. For instance, individuals can understand their social surroundings, assess decisions they attempt to make and such which political leadership conducts on their behalf. Without our knowledge in social science our understanding of the social realm is less complete and our objectivity is less robust. This book provides a platform for readers, scholars, and for practitioners to learn about present trends and debates in Social Sciences, und conduct creative and fresh (interdisciplinary) research; to discuss common encounters, and brainstorm innovative solutions. This book includes Twelve chapters which are divided into four sections related to the disciplines of International Relations, Politics, History, and Law. The chapters are written with different depth and quality; they demonstrate the validity which the social science can stimulate our understanding and anticipation of our world.

Book Short Summary:

Selama setengah abad terakhir, Noam Chomsky, telah banyak menggugat kekuatan gobal yang mengendalikan pilihan masyarakat serta meneliti berbagai kebijakan pemerintah, lembaga negara, dan media-media di Amerika Serikat. Who Rules the World? merupakan investigasi intelektual yang telak dari Chomsky tentang berbagai isu utama pada masa kini. Mulai dari sejarah kelam AS dan Kuba, kebangkitan Tiongkok, konflik di Irak, Afganistan, dan Israel, hingga sanksi terhadap Iran. Chomsky menguak bahwa seruan Amerika soal kebebasan sering bertentangan dengan tindakannya. Sebuah modus operandi kekuasaan imperial pada abad modern. Buku ini adalah bacaan penting untuk memahami bagaimana segala sesuatunya berlangsung. Dengan suara lantang dan pandangan yang cukup jernih, Chomsky memandu kita menemukan kebenaran. "Buku Chomsky ibarat ... polemik yang dirancang untuk menggugah orang Amerika dari rasa puas diri. Amerika, dalam pandangannya, harus menahan diri, dan dia mengukuhkan pandangannya dengan menggebu .... Kita perlu memahaminya sebagai ajakan untuk mengakhiri kemunafikan Amerika, untuk memperkenalkan dimensi mendasar yang lebih konsisten dalam hubungan Amerika dengan dunia, dan, alih-alih menyombongkan kemurahan hati Amerika, untuk menelaah secara kritis bagaimana sebenarnya pemerintah AS menjalankan kekuasaannya yang masih tak tertandingi." ?The New York Review of Books "Chomsky adalah fenomena dunia .... Mungkin dialah suara Amerika yang paling banyak didengar soal kebijakan luar negeri di dunia internasional." -The New York Times Book Review "Dengan logika yang menghunjam kuat, Chomsky meminta kita untuk menyimak baik-baik apa yang diutarakan para pemimpin kita-dan untuk memperhatikan apa yang mereka lesapkan …. Setuju dengan dia atau tidak, kita akan merugi jika tidak mendengarkannya." -BusinessWeek "Bagaimana bisa kita menjadi sebuah imperium? Tulisan-tulisan Noam Chomsky-warga negara Amerika paling berbudi-memberikan jawaban terbaik untuk pertanyaan itu." -The Boston Globe "Mungkin saja, jika Amerika Serikat menempuh jalan yang sama seperti Inggris abad kesembilan belas, tafsiran Chomsky akan menjadi tolok ukur di kalangan ahli sejarah seratus tahun dari sekarang." -The New Yorker "Bagi siapa pun yang ingin mengetahui lebih lanjut tentang dunia tempat kita hidup ... ada satu jawaban sederhana: baca Noam Chomsky." -New Statesman [Mizan, Bentang Pustaka, Hidup, Politik, Pandangan, Memoar, Terjemahan, Indonesia]

Book Short Summary:

Buku ini merupakan kumpulan 160 esai pendek Goenawan Mohamad yang pernah dimuat majalah Tempo dari Januari 1986 sampai Februari 1990. Diawali dengan esai berjudul “Ding” (4 Januari 1986) sampai yang terakhir “Asongan” (24 Februari 1990). Esai-esai yang dikenal sebagai Catatan Pinggir itu berbicara beragam hal, bahkan hampir semua hal yang dekat dengan peristiwa di masyarakat dalam kurun waktu empat tahun itu: tentang kecemasan, kebebasan, kekuasaan, kemerdekaan, keserakahan, kebahagiaan, demokrasi. Mengenai topik yang disebut terakhir, William Liddle, dalam Kata Pengantar untuk buku ini, mengatakan kiranya jelas bahwa Goenawan sangat menyakini demokrasi sebagai jenis pemerintahan yang terbaik bagi negara kebangsaan Dunia Ketiga seperti Indonesia. Tetapi dia tidak berpretensi seolah-olah demokrasi dengan sendirinya mampu menyelesaikan segala persoalan…. Goenawan Mohamad, kata Liddle, adalah burung langka dalam sangkar intelektual modern Indonesia. Dia menolak tegas pengkotakan Timur-Barat. Dalam sejumlah Catatan Pinggir ini, kata Liddle, dikotomi Timur-Barat beberapa kali ditampik Goenawan.

Book Short Summary:

This volume presents a cross-section of current research on the internal syntax of ‘Determiner Phrases` (DPs), with special emphasis on the analysis of DPs modified by genitival, adjectival and other non-finite attributes. Possessors, Predicates and Movement in the DP illustrates clearly the ongoing debate over older and more recent approaches to the syntax of DPs in particular in the wake of the minimalist program (Chomsky 1995) and Kayne’s antisymmetry hypothesis (Kayne 1994). The relative theoretical coherence among the contributions permits detailed comparison of specific syntactic proposals, providing a solid basis for further debate. Several of the papers address the syntactic questions in parallel with related semantic or morphological issues. The value of this collection to the study of Universal Grammar is also underlined by its comparative bias. Analyses of Germanic, Romance and Balkan languages figure prominently, and a number of new empirical generalizations within and between languages are discussed.

Book Short Summary:

Utilizing Lacan's psychoanalytic theory and Zizek's philosophical adaption of it, this book brings into dialogue a series of modernist and postmodernist literary works, films, and critical theory that are concerned with defining America. Ahmed Elbeshlawy demonstrates that how America is perceived in certain texts reveals not only the idealization or condemnation of it, but an imago, or constructed image of the perceiver as well. In turn, texts which particularly focus on demonstrating how other texts about America communicate an untrustworthy message themselves communicate an unreliable message, inventing and reinventing a series of imagos of America. These imagos refer to both idealized and deformed images of America constructed by the perceivers of America. The first part of this book is concerned with modernist perceptions of America, and includes discussion of Adorno, Benjamin, Kafka, D. H. Lawrence, as well as Emerson and Seymour Martin Lipset. The second part is dedicated to postmodernist representations of America, focusing on texts by Edward Said, Ihab Hassan, Susan Sontag, David Shambaugh and Charles W. Brooks, and films including Lars von Trier's Dogville and D.W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation.

Book Short Summary:

One doesn't need to look far to find examples of contemporary locations of cultural opposition. Digital piracy, audio mashups, The Onion and Wikipedia are all examples of transgression in our current mediascape. And as digital age transgression becomes increasingly essential, it also becomes more difficult to define and protect. The contributions in this collection are organized into six sections that address the use of new technologies to alter existing cultural messages, the incorporation of technology and alternative media in transformation of everyday cultural practices and institutions, and the reuse and repurposing of technology to focus active political engagement and innovative social change. Bringing together a variety of scholars and case studies, Transgression 2.0 will be the first key resource for scholars and students interested in digital culture as a transformative intervention in the types, methods and significance of cultural politics.

Book Short Summary:

The compilation of a decade of essays and online ideological struggle with members of Lukman's e-mail chat group formed the basis for "The Black Muslim Manifesto: From Inside the Belly of the Beast". The continuation of that process has called "The Black Muslim Manifesto II: A Luta Continua" into existence. Since the publication of the first "Manifesto", Lukman has continued his analysis of the unfolding global dynamic. Additionally, time has born witness to the accuracy of some of the "Manifesto's" prognostications. For example, we no longer have to speculate about what Obama will do once he's in the WHITE House. Lukman is proud, but not happy, to say that he was one of the few who was NEVER deceived by the "Obama Ploy". Lukman felt compelled to rush "A Luta Continua" to print because much of his analysis, in "Manifesto II", has already proven to be prescient. Events are moving forward at such a rapid pace that many of his predictions have become history. Lukman didn't want to be accused of that for which he condemns our "rearguard leadership"; namely, "Monday Morning Quarterbacking".

Book Short Summary:

With the fall of the Berlin Wall and the shifting of American foreign policy away from "old" Europe, long-established patterns of interaction between Germany and the U.S. have come under review. Although seemingly disconnected from the cultural and intellectual world, political developments were not without their influence on the humanities and their curricula during the past century. In retrospect, we can speak of the many different roles Germany has played in American eyes. The Many Faces of Germany seeks to acknowledge the importance of those incarnations for the study of German culture and history on both sides of the Atlantic. One of the major questions raised by the contributors is whether the transformations in the transatlantic dynamics and in the importance of Germany for the U.S. have had a major influence on the study of things German in the U.S. internally. The volume gathers together leading voices of the older and younger generations of social historians, literary scholars, film critics, and cultural historians.

Book Short Summary:

Postmodernist literature embraces a wide range of forms and perspectives, including texts that are primarily self-reflexive; texts that use pastiche, burlesque, parody, intertextuality and hybrid forms to create textual realities that either run in opposition to or in parallel with an external reality; fabulations that develop both of these strategies; texts that ironize their relationship to reality; works that use the aspects already noted to more fully engage with political or cultural realities; texts that deal with history as a fiction; and texts that elude categorization even within the variety already explored. For example, in fiction, a postmodernist novel might tell a story about a writer struggling with writing (only, perhaps, to find that he is a character in a book by another writer struggling to write a book). The A to Z of Postmodernist Literature and Theater examines the different areas of postmodernist literature and the variety of forms that have been produced. This is accomplished through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and several hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries on individual postmodernist writers, the important postmodernist aesthetic practices, significant texts produced throughout the history of postmodernist writing, and important movements and ideas that have created a variety of literary approaches within the form. By placing these concerns within the historical, philosophical, and cultural contexts of postmodernism, this reference explores the frameworks within which postmodernist literature of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century operates.

Book Short Summary:

Demokrasi bisa mati karena kudeta—atau mati pelan-pelan. Kematian itu bisa tak disadari ketika terjadi selangkah demi selangkah, dengan terpilihnya pemimpin otoriter, disalahgunakannya kekuasaan pemerintah, dan penindasan total atas oposisi. Ketiga langkah itu sedang terjadi di seluruh dunia dan kita semua mesti mengerti bagaimana cara menghentikannya. Dalam buku ini, dua profesor Harvard Steven Levitsky dan Daniel Ziblatt menyampaikan pelajaran penuh wawasan dari sejarah untuk menerangkan kerusakan rezim selama abad ke-20 dan ke-21. Mereka menunjukkan bahayanya pemimpin otoriter ketika menghadapi krisis besar. Berdasarkan riset bertahun-tahun, keduanya menyajikan pemahaman mendalam mengenai mengapa dan bagaimana demokrasi mati; suatu analisis pemicu kewaspadaan mengenai bagaimana demokrasi didesak; dan pedoman untuk memelihara dan memperbaiki demokrasi yang terancam, bagi pemerintah, partai politik, dan individu. Sejarah tak berulang. Namun kita bisa melindungi demokrasi kita dengan belajar dari sejarah, sebelum terlambat.
