Abstract

Work was a core concept in National Socialism. In pre-war concentration camps, it was a tool for converting prisoners into Volksgenossen, or members of the national community. And during the war, forced labor was crucial to armaments production. “Ability to work” meant life or death for Jews, POWs, and others. The essays in this volume explore the multiple meanings of work as a social, political, and cultural practice in National Socialism.

Abstract

Contemporary observers were already aware that the 1970s and 1980s were a time of accelerated change. There were simultaneous breakthroughs in many areas, which permanently transformed politics, society, and culture. People were quick to note that these post-boom years were a turning point. This volume traces the upheavals of the 1970s and 1980s by looking at selected examples to sharpen our awareness of the origins of the present.

Abstract

Cittadinanze offers a new perspective on the history of the State, understood in the aristotelian sense as the whole of its citizens. The volume contains twelve essays dedicated to the possible ways in which citizenship took shape during the contemporary age, analyzing the various historical concretions. Not a single, but a plural citizenship, an object and an epistemological instrument of many declinations - institutional, theoretical-political, juridical, philosophical. A reconstruction conducted through different places and times, ranging from the French and American revolutions to the immateriality of the digital divide. An original exam that interrogates the stories, practices and symbols that have linked individuals to their political communities.

Abstract

Im Mittelpunkt des Buches steht die Frage nach den Loyalitäten und Lebenswelten des Prager jüdischen Großbürgertums zwischen 1800 und 1867. Aufgrund seines enormen wirtschaftlichen Erfolges nahm es innerhalb der jüdischen Bevölkerung Böhmens eine Sonderstellung ein. Anhand von fünf Prager Familien zeigt Martina Niedhammer jedoch, dass sich die gesellschaftlichen Bestrebungen des jüdischen Großbürgertums nicht in sozialem Aufstieg um jeden Preis erschöpften. Dies belegen die vielfältigen Anbindungen der jüdischen Oberschicht an nationalpolitisch, ethnisch und religiös unterschiedlich konnotierte Orte im Prager Stadtraum. Entlang dieser Orte werden ihr ökonomischer Aufstieg, religiöses Leben, soziales und politisches Engagement sowie familiäres Selbstverständnis in den Blick genommen.

Abstract

Peter Borowsky (1938-2000) was a committed historian and enthusiastic historian. For more than 30 years he taught modern history at the History Department of the University of Hamburg. He left a lasting mark on generations of students through his competence and his way of conveying history in a lively way. This is also evident in the 14 contributions to German history in the 19th and 20th centuries, which are published here for the first time. The topics range from the Hohenzollern region to the political culture of the Federal Republic of Germany and include students in the revolution of 1848, Hamburg's 19th century history, the development from the Weimar Republic to the "Third Reich", German relations with Eastern European countries and the USA. Two texts deal vividly with the history of German historiography and the "Historian's Dispute".

Abstract

The conception and creation of the children's magazine "Pioniere" was an integral part of the extensive educational plan implemented by the PCI in the fifties for the construction of a new society. This book studies the issue of the dialogue set up with the young readers which evolved through a series of innovative initiatives, but was nourished above all by the post column run by the editor Dina Rinaldi. This was pivotal in the "education of feelings" and destined, in the optic of the "Pioniere", to the training up of the new generations.

Abstract

Drawing on hitherto neglected archival materials, Zohar Segev sheds new light on the policy of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) during the Holocaust. Contrary to popular belief, he can show that there was an impressive system of previously unknown rescue efforts. Even more so, there is evidence for an alternative pattern for modern Jewish existence in the thinking and policy of the World Jewish Congress. WJC leaders supported the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine but did not see it as an end in itself. They strove to establish a Jewish state and to rehabilitate Diaspora Jewish life, two goals they saw as mutually complementary. The efforts of the WJC are put into the context of the serious difficulties facing the American Jewish community and its representative institutions during and after the war, as they tried to act as an ethnic minority within American society. This title was made Open Access by libraries from around the world through Knowledge Unlatched.--Provided by publisher.

Abstract

Bulgaria’s cultural policy has experienced many transformations since the revolution. One of the most important is that at the beginning the conviction developed that those elements which could not support themselves because of the new market situation made no relevant social contribution. One of the aims of this thesis is to question what the reality of “cultural economy” is and how this is reflected in law-making and life.

Abstract

Die europäische Integration führt zu einer Schwächung des Staates zugunsten des Marktes. - Diese These bestimmt seit einigen Jahren den EU-Diskurs. Aber kann man wirklich von einer Neoliberalisierung durch die EU sprechen? Und wenn ja, war diese Entwicklung gewollt oder war sie der Logik supranationaler Zusammenarbeit geschuldet? Der Band geht diesen Fragen anhand der europäischen Vorgaben für die nationale Ausgabenpolitik nach. Eine Analyse der Geschichte der Integration seit den Römischen Verträgen zeigt, dass es Alternativen zur heutigen Dominanz neoliberaler Politik gegeben hat - und somit auch wieder geben kann.
