Abstract

Como se processa a idéia de revolução brasileira na última esquerda comunista - que mantinha substantiva inserção sindical e o intuito da revolução social em seu programa - e na principal facção emergida da depleção dessa última esquerda é o objeto nuclear deste livro. Por via de conseqüência, esta pesquisa coloca em relevo os acontecimentos que culminaram na derrota completa dessa esquerda; derrota ocorrida através de uma dupla falência, id est, o seu esvaziamento teórico e, simultaneamente, a sua morte física perpetrada por uma política de genocídio implementada pela ditadura bonapartista principiada em 1964. Neste livro é definida a figura central, quase exclusiva, de Carlos Marighella (1911-1969) no que se refere ao pensamento da esquerda de uma época, especialmente, ao pensamento da facção que emerge da esquerda comunista. Essa definição parte da constatação de que, num primeiro momento, Marighella foi a personificação das idéias hegemônicas dentro do Partido Comunista Brasileiro (PCB) e da esquerda comunista nacional por três décadas; e num segundo momento, o revolucionário fora o primus inter pares na reordenação tática da esquerda comunista, que é arrastada quase por completo para a luta armada contra a ditadura bonapartista.

Abstract

'A Certain Age' is an unconventional, evocative work of history and a moving reflection on memory, modernity, space, time, and the limitations of traditional historical narratives. Rudolf Mrázek visited Indonesia throughout the 1990s, recording lengthy interviews with elderly intellectuals in and around Jakarta. With few exceptions, they were part of an urban elite born under colonial rule and educated at Dutch schools. From the early twentieth century, through the late colonial era, the national revolution, and well into independence after 1945, these intellectuals injected their ideas of modernity, progress, and freedom into local and national discussion.When Mrázek began his interviews, he expected to discuss phenomena such as the transition from colonialism to postcolonialism. His interviewees, however, wanted to share more personal recollections. Mrázek illuminates their stories of the past with evocative depictions of their late-twentieth-century surroundings.

Abstract

"This book brings to light these indigenous intellectuals' dynamic efforts to shape their own social and political status in the Spanish Empire. For the historian of colonial Spanish America or Peru, it provides an enticing overview of a transatlantic political discourse and suggests interesting avenues for future research."

Abstract

The American Jewish Communist movement played a major role in the politics of Jewish communities in cities such as Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia, as well as in many other centers, between the 1920s and the 1950s. Making extensive use of Yiddish-language books, newspapers, periodicals, pamphlets, and other materials, Dreams of Nationhood traces the ideological and material support provided to the Jewish Autonomous Region of Birobidzhan, located in the far east of the Soviet Union, by two American Jewish Communist-led organizations, the ICOR and the American Birobidzhan Committee. By providing a detailed historical examination of the political work of these two groups, the book makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of twentieth century Jewish life in the United States.

Abstract

Göttingen nach Kriegsende 1945 – Wie gestaltete sich der Nachkriegsalltag aus Sicht der Bevölkerung und der alten und neuen Behörden? Welche Formen und Auswirkungen hatten die neuen politischen Verhältnisse, die Flüchtlinge, die Mangelwirtschaft, die Wohnungsnot, die Umgestaltung des Bildungssektors und welche Neuordnungen des öffentlichen und kulturellen Lebens stießen auf Akzeptanz oder Ablehnung? Diesen und anderen Fragen geht der vorliegende Sammelband nach. Er beruht auf Beiträgen eines Seminars im Fach Geschichte der Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, die von den Herausgeberinnen redigiert und durch ein Vorwort ergänzt wurden. In verschiedenen Archiven stießen die Studierenden auf zahlreiche bislang unveröffentlichte Quellen und analysierten diese mit Hilfe aktueller Forschungsansätze zur Alltagsgeschichte.

Abstract

A millennium and a half after the end of the period of its unquestioned dominance, Rome remains a significant presence in western culture. This book explores what the empire meant to its subjects.The idea of Rome has long outlived the physical empire that gave it form, and now holds sway over vastly more people and a far greater geographical area than the Romans ever ruled. It continues to shape our understanding of the nature of imperialism, and thus, however subtly, to influence the workings of the world. Unlike most works on Roman history, this book does not offer a simplistic narrative, with military triumph followed by decline and fall. Instead, it analyses the origins and nature of Roman imperialism, its economic, social and cultural impact on the regions it conquered, and its continuing influence in discussions and debates about modern imperialism.

Abstract

Dieser Band nimmt jenen doppelten Wettstreit in den Blick, der für die Kunstwissenschaften (Kunst-, Musik- und Literaturwissenschaft) im 19. Jahrhundert typisch ist: den Wettstreit zwischen den Wissenschaften selbst, der sich aus dem Wettstreit ihrer Künste speist. Die jeweilige Kunstwissenschaft, so die zugrunde liegende Hypothese, bezieht ihre Geltung und ihren Rang aus der allgemeinen Wertschätzung ihrer Bezugskunst. Auf diese Weise geraten die Künste und ihre Wissenschaften in eine sich wechselseitig verstärkende Konkurrenz, die ihren Ausdruck in zahlreichen Debatten über die jeweilige Leitkunst findet. Die interdisziplinär hier versammelten Beiträge erschließen aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven die wissenschaftsgeschichtlichen Ausdifferenzierungs- und Homogenisierungsprozesse, in deren Zusammenhang der Wettstreit der Künste und ihrer Wissenschaften im 19. Jahrhundert stattfand. Die sie verbindende Fragestellung zielt dabei auf die Grundlagen des Kunstverständnisses sowie auf die Grundlagen des Selbstverständnisses der Kunstwissenschaften. Es geht nicht zuletzt auch darum, aufzuzeigen, inwiefern die Prämissen, die zur Begründung der Disziplinen entwickelt wurden, nach wie vor Gültigkeit beanspruchen – direkt durch ihre disziplinäre Kanonisierung und indirekt selbst durch die gebrochene Wirksamkeit jener wissenschaftlichen Meistererzählungen, die sie hervorgebracht haben.
