Description : Read Now The Barbed Wire College by Ron Theodore Robin and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. from stalag 17 to the manchurian candidate, the american media have long been fascinated with stories of american prisoners of war. but few americans are aware that enemy prisoners of war were incarcerated on our own soil during world war ii. in the barbed-wire college ron robin tells the extraordinary story of the 380,000 german prisoners who filled camps from rhode island to wisconsin, missouri to new jersey. using personal narratives, camp newspapers, and military records, robin re-creates in arresting detail the attempts of prison officials to mold the daily lives and minds of their prisoners. from 1943 onward, and in spite of the geneva convention, prisoners were subjected to an ambitious reeducation program designed to turn them into american-style democrats. under the direction of the pentagon, liberal arts professors entered over 500 camps nationwide. deaf to the advice of their professional rivals, the behavioral scientists, these instructors pushed through a program of arts and humanities that stressed only the positive aspects of american society. aided by german pow collaborators, american educators censored popular books and films in order to promote democratic humanism and downplay class and race issues, materialism, and wartime heroics. red-baiting pentagon officials added their contribution to the program, as well; by the war's end, the curriculum was more concerned with combating the appeals of communism than with eradicating the evils of national socialism. the reeducation officials neglected to account for one factor: an entrenched german military subculture in the camps, complete with a rigid chain of command and a propensity for murdering "traitors." the result of their neglect was utter failure for the reeducation program. by telling the story of the program's rocky existence, however, ron robin shows how this intriguing chapter of military history was tied to two crucial episodes of twentieth- century american history: the battle over the future of american education and the mccarthy-era hysterics that awaited postwar america.

Description : Read Now Writing Against Boundaries by Barbara Kosta and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. writing against boundaries. nationality, ethnicity and gender in the german-speaking context presents a series of essays by prominent scholars who critically explore the intersection of nation and subjectivity, the production of national identities, and the tense negotiation of multiculturalism in german-speaking countries. by looking at a wide spectrum of texts that range from richard wagner's operas to hans bellmer's art, and to literature by aras Ören, irene dische, annette kolb, elizabeth langgässer, karin reschke, christa wolf, to contemporary german theater by bettina fless, elfriede jelinek, anna langhoff, emine sevgi Özdamar, and to monika treut's films, the volume explores the intersection of gender, ethnicity and nation and examines concepts of national culture and the foreigner or so-called 'other.' focusing on such issues as immigration, xenophobia, gender, and sexuality, the volume looks at narratives that sustain the myth of a homogeneous nation, and those that disrupt it. it responds to a growing concern with borders and identity in a time in which borders are tightening as the demands of globalization increase.

Description : Read Now A Baltic Odyssey by Martha Von Rosen and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. fifty years after the end of world war ii, two unique narratives chronicle the final months of that desperate struggle in very personal and explicit terms. while cruelly separated from one another, jurgen and martha von rosen have written two parallel accounts about the same years. baron von rosen's prisoner-of-war diary is a standing testimonial to the horrors of imprisonment. it reveals a picture of the "enemy," and the conduct of the allied forces toward their captives, which may be quite foreign to conventional knowledge. the baron who had been conscripted into the afrika korps, was captured by the allies in italy after germany surrendered in 1945. baroness von rosen's memoir is a refugee's account of war. as a young woman fleeing from the advancing russians, she travelled through a harsh winter landscape accompanied by her aged parents and her young children. these poignant stories clearly show the experience of the forgotten and homeless victims of war, no matter what side they happen to have been on.

Description : Read Now An Odyssey For Our Time by Georgina Paul and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. in her 2007 poem cycle niemands frau, barbara köhler returns to homer’s odyssey, not to retell it, but to take up some of the threads it has woven into the cultural tradition of the west – and to unravel them, just as penelope, the wife of the hero who called himself nobody, unravelled each night the web she re-wove by day. köhler’s return to the odyssey takes place under the sign of a grammatical shift, from ‘er’ to ‘sie’, from the singular hero to a plurality of female voices – nausicaa, circe, calypso, ino leucothea, helen and penelope herself – with implications for thinking about identity, power and knowledge, about gender and relationality, but also about the corporeality and multivocality which underlies the ‘virtual reality’ of the printed text. the eight essays in this volume explore köhler’s iridescent poem cycle from a variety of different angles: its context in contemporary german refigurations of the classical; its engagement with homer and the classical tradition; its contribution to feminist philosophy of the subject and a female ‘dialectic of enlightenment’; its incorporation of the voices of poetic predecessors; and the surprising alliance it uncovers between poetry and quantum theory.
