  • Einführung in die Rechtswissenschaftby Johann Braun

    Mohr Siebeck 2011; US$ 22.90

    "Die Spannbreite der Fragen, die Braun aufgreift, schlägt den Bogen weit, aber nirgends ohne klare Kontur, die dem Leser als Markierung dient und zugleich zur eigenen Meinungsbildung herausfordert. So gelingt es dem Autor vorzüglich, hoch aktuelle rechtspolitische Fragen (z.B. Sinn der Strafe oder geschlechtsspezifische Privilegierungen, Quotenvorrechte)... more...

  • The History of the Thirty Years' Warby Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller; Rev. A. J. W. Morrison

    The Floating Press 2008; US$ 4.95

    Tensions between Catholic and Protestant factions of the Roman Empire erupted into what became know as the Thirty Years' War in 1618. German poet, historian, philosopher and dramatist Friedrich Schiller writes about the effect this war had on the territories in which it was fought, most of which became modern-day Germany. Schiller wrote this history... more...

  • Faustby Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

    Random House Publishing Group 2011; US$ 5.95

    Goethe?s masterpiece and perhaps the greatest work in German literature, Faust has made the legendary German alchemist one of the central myths of the Western world. Here indeed is a monumental Faust, an audacious man boldly wagering with the devil, Mephistopheles, that no magic, sensuality, experience, or knowledge can lead him to a moment he... more...

  • The Swiss Family Robinsonby Johann David Wyss

    The Floating Press 2009; US$ 3.99

    The Swiss Family Robinson tells the story of a Swiss family who are shipwrecked in the East Indies. First published in 1812, Johann David Wyss intended the novel to teach his sons family values and and self-reliance. The adventures in the book contain lessons in natural history and moral guidance, and include an impossible array of flora and fauna... more...

  • Erotica Romanaby Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 2.99

    German literary prodigy Johann Wolfgang von Goethe breaks ground again with this volume of sensual love poetry. Despite its titillating title, these poems -- though shockingly candid in the context of the early 1800s -- are tame by contemporary standards, and Goethe couches his carnal odes in coy, oblique metaphors. more...

  • Ark of the Libertiesby Ted Widmer

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2008; US$ 25.99

    The United States stands at a historic crossroads; essential to the world yet unappreciated. America's decline in popularity over the last eight years has been nothing short of astonishing. With wit, brilliance, and deep affection, Ted Widmer, a scholar and a former presidential speechwriter, reminds everyone why this great nation had so far to... more...

  • Der Buddha und der ?Andere?by Caroline Widmer

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2014; US$ 113.56

    Als wahrscheinlich älteste vollständige Überlieferung des Buddhismus reflektiert der Pali-Kanon in literarisch-narrativer Form die Auseinandersetzung mit religiös ?Anderen? aus emischer Perspektive. Die Suttas berichten nicht nur, wie der Buddha Mitglieder seines Ordens belehrt, sondern auch, wie er Vertretern anderer religiöser Gruppierungen begegnet... more...

  • Der Eigenname und seine Buchstabenby Peter Widmer

    transcript 2014; US$ 25.95

    Dem Eigennamen (Vorname und Familienname) kommt - wie dem Spiegelbild - eine strukturierende Funktion für das kulturelle Leben und die Konstitution der subjektiven Realität zu. Von den Sozial- und Sprachwissenschaften ebenso wie von Geschichte, Philosophie und Psychoanalyse bisher erstaunlicherweise stiefmütterlich behandelt, finden sich in der Belletristik... more...

  • Europe in China ? China in Europeby Paul Widmer

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2013; US$ 30.54

    <P>The manifold aspects of the emergence of a thorough cultural exchange between Europe and China from the 16th to 18th centuries still arouse astonishment and demand further reflection. These proceedings of the symposium "Europe in China ? China in Europe" in commemoration of Matteo Ricci gather together historical contributions which... more...

  • Unter Zions Panierby Kurt Widmer

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2013; US$ 61.07

    <P>One of the earliest critiques of Mormonism&nbsp;was written in German. German Reformed Pastor Diedrich Willers who had lost several of his congregants to the infant Mormon church advised his superiors of the threat posed by the early Morons. German speaking immigrants to North America converted, and played a significant role in the early... more...
