Description : Read Now Toms Run by Steve Bill Hanshew and His Fathers and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. history is a sequence of events from the past leading us to the present. family history is where we came from and how we got here. more often than not those two paths converge and become a composite history we live each and every day, interacting with the world around us. this history forms and molds us into what we become and when we're gone, how we will be remembered, however fleeting that may be. for a christian how we interact with the world is defined by christ and should be a defining feature of our personality. pointedly, we are to be both ?salt? and ?light'. salt preserves and light displaces darkness. this task has never been more difficult as we are slowly enveloped by a culture that preserves nothing good, extols the bad while seeking to snuff out the light. as believers we more and more find ourselves as christ warned; hated and reviled, just as he was. at some nearly subliminal level i think many americans feel this void as more and more of our culture seeks to eradicate god and replace it with secular humanism. they feel the unnatural movement towards anarchy. it can be stopped or at least abated, only if we are willing to look at where we were and how we got here. this book attempts to retrace those steps leading to this amoral abyss

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, Helga Kraft 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 Hans Sturm by GORDON WILLIAMSON and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. there are many biographies of former soldiers of the german wehrmacht, many of whom had fascinating stories to tell, and several of whom were highly decorated. few, however, can match hans sturm in his astonishing rise from a mere private in an infantry regiment, thrown into the bloody maelstrom of the eastern front, to becoming a glorified war hero whose role brought him into direct regular contact with prominenten of the third reich. this young man s fearless heroism in combat earned him some of germany s highest military awards, and yet he was pugnaciously outspoken about bullying and injustice. from striking a member of the feared sicherheitsdienst in defence of a jewish woman to refusing to wear a decoration he felt was tainted by its encouragement of inhumane treatment of enemy partisans, sturm repeatedly stuck to his moral values no matter what the risk. but even when the war was finally over, his travails did not end: he was held in a number of soviet labour camps, before finally being released in 1953. hans sturm: a soldier s odyssey on the eastern front is an engaging reconstruction of events based on exchanges of correspondence and reminiscences between the author and hans sturm himself. it vividly portrays not only a german soldier s experience on the eastern front, but the intriguing trajectories that success in the battlefield yielded for him at home under the nazi regime.
