As Australia's longest-serving Prime Minister and the founder of the Liberal Party, Sir Robert Menzies is a towering figure in our political and cultural history. Letters to My Daughter is a collection of letters written by Menzies to his only daughter, Heather, throughout the fifties, sixties and seventies, when she was living overseas with her diplomat husband. They are full of warmth, love, humour and insights—both political and personal—and they allow us to see a completely different side of a man most Australians think of as a rather stern and forbidding authoritarian figure. The letters are so beautifully written they make you realise what a lost art letter writing is, and they are introduced by Heather herself, who explains the insider references and humorous asides. The collection also includes fascinating correspondence between Menzies and leaders of the day, including President John F. Kennedy and Gough Whitlam. Even the most rusted-on Labor voter will come away with a different view of Menzies and his legacy after reading this book.

A Memoir

In this courageous memoir, Fawzia Koofi, Afghanistan's most popular female politician, gives us her first-hand account of Afghan history through the rule of the Mujahedeen and Taliban, her experiences of the Afghanistan War, and the effects of these events on the lives of women in Afghanistan. In writing Letters to My Daughters, Fawzia has created a fresh take on Afghan society and Islam, and a gripping account of a life lived under the most harrowing of circumstances. Fawzia is the nineteenth child of twenty-three in a family with seven wives. Her father was an incorruptible politician strongly attached to Afghan tradition. When he was murdered by the Mujahedeen, Fawzia's illiterate mother escaped with her children and decided to send the ten-year-old Fawzia to school. As the civil war raged, Fawzia dodged bullets and snipers to attend class, determined to be the first person in her family to receive an education. Fawzia went on to marry a man she loved, and they had two cherished daughters, Shohra and Shaharzad. Sadly, the arrival of the Taliban spelled an end to Fawzia's freedom. Outraged and deeply saddened by the injustice she saw around her, and by the tainting of her Islamic faith, she discovered politics for herself, following in her father's footsteps. Tragically, this choice has lead to security threats to her life by Islamic extremists. Thus, Letters to My Daughters is not only a record of her life, but also acts as a literal letter through which Fawzia can pass on her wisdom about justice and dignity to her daughters, not knowing for how long she will survive such attacks.

English summary: Jawaharlal Nehru (1889-1964) wrote his world history in form of letters to his daughter Indira (1917-1984) in the 1930s. The work represents a key text of cosmopolitan world historical consideration from the first half of the 20th century. German text. German description: Dieses Werk, das Jawaharlal Nehru wahrend seiner Gefangnishaft in den 1930er Jahren fur seine Tochter Indira verfasste, ist eine weltweit noch immer hochst populare Geschichtsdarstellung. Das in vieler Hinsicht meisterhafte Opus, das auch ein erwachsenes Lesepublikum anspricht, soll nach einem halben Jahrhundert erneut der deutschsprachigen Offentlichkeit zuganglich gemacht werden. Es reprasentiert einen Schlusseltext kosmopolitischer Weltgeschichtsbetrachtung, der auch heute noch eine oft erstaunliche Aktualitat besitzt. Indem das Werk die vertrauten Betrachtungshorizonte erweitert und den europaischen und asiatischen Blickwinkel zu verbinden weiss, ermoglicht es jenen transkulturellen Perspektivenwechsel, ohne den historisch-politische Bildung im Zeitalter der Globalisierung nicht mehr denkbar ist.

Seine großen Reden

Category: Political Science

Page: 255

View: 9779


Es sind die Themen unserer Zeit: Klimawandel, Migration, Terrorismus, Atomwaffen, rassistische Gewalt. Es sind die Themen, die Barack Obama in acht Jahren als US-Präsident wie kein anderer Staatsmann verfolgt hat. In seinen Reden zieht er unaufgeregt und konzentriert Lehren aus einer fehlgeleiteten Politik der Vergangenheit und richtet den Blick auf die Zukunft. Barack Obama ist aber nicht nur ein scharfsinniger Politiker, er ist einer der Menschen, die sich nicht scheuen, Mitgefühl zu zeigen, Verzweiflung und Trauer. Unvergessen seine Rede beim Begräbnis von Nelson Mandela oder seine spontane Äußerung zu dem Attentat in Orlando. Auf seinen Reden gründet sich sein Vermächtnis, Ideale auch angesichts einer schwierigen Realität nicht zu verraten.
