  • Krieg und Zivilgesellschaft.by Dierk Spreen; Trutz von Trotha

    Duncker & Humblot 2012; US$ 65.75

    Hauptbeschreibung Krieg und Zivilgesellschaft scheinen zwei unvereinbaren Wirklichkeiten zuzugehören: In der einen herrscht die Unordnung der Gewalt, in der anderen die gewaltfreie Verständigung des bürgerschaftlichen Umgangs miteinander. Dass diese Vereinfachung der Realität oftmals nicht entspricht, ist Thema des vorliegenden Bandes. Unter verschiedenen... more...

  • Shakespeare. Mit einem Anhang: Der Bacon-Wahnby Eduard Engel; Esther Gückel

    Diplomica Verlag 2010; US$ 9.36

    Hauptbeschreibung Eduard Engel entkräftet mit seinem Buch über den wohl größten englischen Dichter die weitverbreitete Meinung, man wisse nichts über dessen Leben.

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2012; US$ 45.00

    The past century's culture wars that Britain has been consumed by, but that few North Americans seem aware of, have resulted in revised notions of Britishness and British literature. Yet literary anthologies remain anchored to an archaic Anglo-English interpretation of British literature. Conflicts have been played out over specific national vs.... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    First published in 1975, this book places Elizabeth Gaskell amongst the major novelists of the nineteenth-century. It considers how she has sometimes been overlooked, or admired for very few of her works, or for reasons that are not in fact central to her art. W. A. Craik looks at Gaskell?s full-length novels with three main purposes: to analyse her... more...
