Written in 1939, first published in 1942, a national bestseller and a 1943 BOMC Main Selection, The Seventh Cross presented to a still doubtful, naive America a first-hand account of life in Hitler's Germany and the horrors of the concentration camps. Seven men attempt an escape from Westhofen; after the escape the camp commander erects seven crosses, one for each. Only one, the young communist, Heisler, survives, not by cunning or superior skill, but through the complicity of a web of common citizens unwilling to bow to the Gestapo and forced to make decisions that will determine the character of their future lives.

Anyone who examines the history of Western art must be struck by the prevalence of images of the female body. More than any other subject, the female nude connotes `art'. The framed image of a female body, hung on the walls of an art gallery, is an icon of Western culture, a symbol of civilization and accomplishment. But how and why did the female nude acquire this status? The Female Nude brings together, in an entirely new way, analysis of the historical tradition of the female nude and discussion of recent feminist art, and by exploring the ways in which acceptable and unacceptable images of the female body are produced and maintained, renews recent debates on high culture and pornography. The Female Nude represents the first feminist survey of the most significant subject in Western art. It reveals how the female nude is now both at the centre and at the margins of high culture. At the centre, and within art historical discourse, the female nude is seen as the visual culmination of enlightenment aesthetics; at the edge, it risks losing its repectability and spilling over into the obscene.

"Rummelplatz, " a novel of epic proportions, focuses on those whose lives are connected to Wismut, East Germany s notorious uranium mine, run by the Soviet and supplying the brotherland with much-needed uranium for its atomic programme. The mine attracts war veterans, fortune-seekers and outsiders like Peter Loose (in effect the author s alter ego), who had a difficult childhood and an SS-member father. Although these workers are well remunerated the local paper factory suffers as a result life in the mine is bleak. Safety provisions are almost non-existent and there are inadequate tools with which to work. The only outlet for the mine s workers are the bars and fairground where copious amounts of alcohol are consumed and the usual fights ensue. In brief, Wismut emerges as a microcosm of the nascent society that was East Germany. Suppressed by the East German censorship authorities in 1965, "Rummelplatz" paints characters as intrinsically human, and by the end the author asks all of them the salient question: What is left behind when a worker dies? His work? Braunig believes that there is no one, no matter how poor, who does not leave something behind. Following his tragic premature death at the age of 42, he himself has left more than most.

Search engines - most obviously Google - lie at the heart of our digital lives. Their interfaces seem to be simple and neutral. Yet underneath operates a political philosophy, written in complex technical code. At stake is nothing less than how we, individually and collectively, find out about the world. "Deep Search is the most profound set of statements and questions yet on the new universal machine, the search engine. Knowledge about the networks and the means of sorting them starts from the grounds of politics, culture and the formation of life rather than what is simply technically or legally possible. This book demands to be used." -Matthew Fuller, Goldsmiths, University of London, author of Media Ecologies "This collection gets to the heart of the most important issues concerning our global information ecosystem: Will the 'soft power' of one, two, or three corporations exert inordinate yet undetectable influence over what we consider important, beautiful, or true? What are the possibilities for resistance? What are the proper avenues for law, policy, and personal choices? This book walks us through these challenges like no other before it." -Siva Vaidhyanathan, University of Virginia, author of The Googlization of Everything Wer sich über die wichtigste technische Errungenschaft des 20. Jahrhunderts und ihre politischen und sozialen Auswirkungen auf die folgenden schlaumachen will, der wird in diesem Sammelband fündig. Die Presse, Harald Klauhs

What was life really like for East Germans, effectively imprisoned behind the Iron Curtain? The headline stories of Cold War spies and surveillance by the secret police, of political repression and corruption, do not tell the whole story. After the unification of Germany in 1990 many East Germans remembered their lives as interesting, varied, and full of educational, career, and leisure opportunities: in many ways “perfectly ordinary lives.” Using the rich resources of the newly-opened GDR archives, Mary Fulbrook investigates these conflicting narratives. She explores the transformation of East German society from the ruins of Hitler's Third Reich to a modernizing industrial state. She examines changing conceptions of normality within an authoritarian political system, and provides extraordinary insights into the ways in which individuals perceived their rights and actively sought to shape their own lives. Replacing the simplistic black-and-white concept of “totalitarianism” by the notion of a “participatory dictatorship,” this book seeks to reinstate the East German people as actors in their own history.

Erstmals wird im ersten Teil dieses Buches die österreichische Exil- und Emigrationsforschung über die 'Vertriebene Vernunft und Kunst' in englischer Sprache dokumentiert. Mit Beiträgen über den kulturellen Exodus (Wissenschaft, Literatur, Film, Theater, Musik, Architektur und bildende Kunst) in der Epoche des Faschismus und Nationalsozialismus mit den spürbaren Folgen bis zur Gegenwart wird der durch Vertreibung und Vernichtung vom Lande selbst verursachte geistige Verlust zwischen Kontinuität und Bruch thematisiert. Die Forschungsbeiträge von vorwiegend jüngeren österreichischen WissenschaftlerInnen werden durch (auto)biographische Texte von ' heute prominenten ' vertriebenen Ãsterreichern und Vertretern des Widerstandes bereichert.Im zweiten, dokumentarischen Teil sind rund 4000 Kurzbiographien der österreichischen kulturellen Emigration in Form von 5 Datenbanken (Wissenschaft, Literatur, Film/Theater, Musik, bildende Kunst/Architektur) in deutscher Sprache sowie durch eine umfassende Dokumentation der österreichischen Exilzeitschriften (1933'1945) abgedrucktDamit stellt diese Publikation ein reich illustriertes Lese- und Materialienbuch zum kulturellen Exodus aus Ãsterreich dar, dessen Aktualität auch in der heutigen Rolle Ãsterreichs als (R)Emigrations- und Immigrationsland nach der 'Wende 1989/90' liegt.
