A.S. Byatt - Booker-Preis Gewinnerin und von der Queen ernannte ›Dame Commander of the British Empire‹ - umspannt in ihrem neuen, opulenten Roman ein Vierteljahrhundert, die Jahre von 1895 bis kurz nach dem 1. Weltkrieg. Im Süden Englands, in London, Paris und im zügellosen Schwabing suchen die Familien Wellwood, Fludd und Cairn am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts ein freieres und erfüllteres Leben, sie proben neue Wege in Kunst und Politik, Liebe und Erziehung. Immer mit dabei sind die vielen Kinder, die sich mit ihren unterschiedlichen Talenten und Temperamenten einen Weg durch die Lebensexperimente ihrer Eltern bahnen. Aber alle Familien, auch die fortschrittlichsten, haben ihre dunklen Geheimnisse – am Ende drohen Enttäuschung, Verrat und der große Krieg. ›Das Buch der Kinder‹ schlägt einen weiten Bogen von England bis nach Deutschland und berührt dabei immer wieder im Kleinen, in den intimen Momenten, die ein jedes Leben unverwechselbar machen.

Die Bedingungen, unter denen radikale Protestbewegungen entstehen, sind zentral für die Erklärung sozialen Wandels. Andreas Pettenkofer liefert eine – bisher fehlende – kritische Gesamtdarstellung der entsprechenden Theorien. Darüber hinaus entwirft er in Anknüpfung an Konzepte der klassischen Religionssoziologie eine Theorie, um die Mechanismen auch des kulturellen Wandels zu erklären, die mit Protestbewegungen verbunden sind. Er ermöglicht damit ein genaueres Verständnis von Protestphänomenen. Zugleich zeigt er, welchen Nutzen die Analyse radikaler Protestbewegungen für die allgemeine sozialtheoretische Diskussion bringt.

Throughout the course of history, freedom fighters have been many and varied as have the motivations and the successes of the revolutions they attempted and inspired. Whether their beliefs were correct or misplaced, the courage to fight for the cause has always been the common denominator. They stood alone frequently in the face of enormous adversity and attempted to change the face of the world around them. Freedom Fighters is a record of inspirational, courageous, determined, and sometimes very dangerous people, and the places they secured for themselves in history. Contents: Ancient Freedom Fighters including Spartacus, Jesus, Boudicca Medieval Freedom Fighters including Robin Hood, William Tell, Joan of Arc Early Freedom Fighters including Martin Luther, Walter Raleigh, Simon Bolivar, Karl Marx Modern Freedom Fighters including The Suffragettes, Russian Revolution, Gandhi, Castro, Mandela

Der Titel dieses heftig umstrittenen Bestsellers ist in die Umgangssprache eingegangen. Weiblichkeitswahn – das ist die von mächtigen wirtschaftlichen Interessengruppen manipulierte Umkehrung der Frauenemanzipation. Die Frau wird durch psychologische Dauerbeeinflussung in der Werbung und in den Massenmedien zur «glücklichen Hausfrau und Mutter» umfunktioniert, wird als kaufkräftige Konsumentin umschmeichelt und auf ein Sexualsymbol mit Warencharakter reduziert. Betty Friedan führt ein erdrückendes Beweismaterial ins Feld gegen das entstellte Image des weiblichen Wesens in unserer Zivilisation. Die Autorin zeigt allerdings auch Wege, auf denen die moderne Frau trotz aller Widerstände ihren eigenen Glücksansprüchen und denen der Familie gerecht werden kann. Dieses Werk einer intelligenten und temperamentvollen Frau über die Frau sollte auch Pflichtlektüre für Männer sein.

Kalifornien, 1969. Evie Boyd ist vierzehn und möchte unbedingt gesehen werden – aber weder die frisch geschiedenen Eltern noch ihre einzige Freundin beachten sie. Doch dann, an einem der endlosen Sommertage, begegnet sie ihnen: den „Girls“. Das Haar, lang und unfrisiert. Die ausgefransten Kleider. Ihr lautes, freies Lachen. Unter ihnen ist auch die ältere Suzanne, der Evie verfällt. Mit ihnen zieht sie zu Russell, einem Typ wie Charles Manson, dessen Ranch tief in den Hügeln liegt. Gerüchte von Sex, wilden Partys, Einzelne, die plötzlich ausreißen. Evie gibt sich der Vision grenzenloser Liebe hin und merkt nicht, wie der Moment naht, der ihr Leben mit Gewalt für immer zerstören könnte.

Catherine Marshall was a vital figure in the women's suffrage movement in Britain before the First World War. Using her remarkable political skills on behalf of the major non-militant organization, the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies (NUWSS), she built close connections with major suffragist politicians, leading some, in all three parties, to consider adopting a measure of women's enfranchisement as a party plank.

Conflicting Identities and Multiple Masculinities takes as its focus the construction of masculinity in Western Europe from the early Middle Ages until the fifteenth century, crossing from pre-Christian Scandinavia across western Christendom. The essays consult a broad and representative cross section of sources including the work of theological, scholastic, and monastic writers, sagas, hagiography and memoirs, material culture, chronicles, exampla and vernacular literature, sumptuary legislation, and the records of ecclesiastical courts. The studies address questions of what constituted male identity, and male sexuality. How was masculinity constructed in different social groups? How did the secular and ecclesiastical ideals of masculinity reinforce each other or diverge? These essays address the topic of medieval men and, through a variety of theoretical, methodological, and disciplinary approaches, significantly extend our understanding of how, in the Middle Ages, masculinity and identity were conflicted and multifarious.

Suffrage Discourse in Britain During the First World War

In the first in-depth study of the relationship between the suffrage campaign in Britain and World War I, Angela K. Smith explores the links between these two defining moments of the early twentieth century. Did the opportunities afforded by the war enable women finally and irrefutably to demonstrate their right to full citizenship? Or did World War I actually postpone women's enfranchisement? Although the Suffrage Movement was divided by the outbreak of war, many women continued to campaign for the vote, producing a wide variety of fictional and nonfictional 'suffrage texts'. Whether the writing of these women demonstrated their patriotism, pacifism, or ambivalence, it formed an integral part of their political responses to the war. Through textual/literary analysis, Smith explores these responses within historical, social, and cultural contexts to understand the impact of the war on the success of the campaign in 1918 and the consequences for the years that followed.
