Lapham's Quarterly

About Lapham's Quarterly

"Not to know what happened before
one was born is always to be a child."—Cicero

Lapham's Quarterly embodies the belief that history is the root of all education, scientific and literary as well as political and economic. Each issue addresses a topic of current interest and concern — War, Religion, Money, Medicine, Nature, Crime — by bringing up to the microphone of the present the advice and counsel of the past. Valuable observations of the human character and predicament don't become obsolete.

The texts are drawn from authors on the order of Shakespeare, Aristotle, Tolstoy, Twain, Thucydides, Woolf, Dickens, Wharton, Gibbon, Keynes, Gandhi, Balzac, Austen, Thoreau, Didion, and De Gaulle. Abridged rather than paraphrased, none of the texts in the Quarterly runs to a length longer than seven pages, others no more that seven paragraphs. Together with the writing of the world's great thinkers, each issue offers full-color reproductions of paintings by the world's great painters. The connecting of the then with the now is augmented with the further evidence found in letters, speeches, diaries and photographs, in confessions voluntary and coerced, in five-act plays and three-part songs.

Maßgeblich beteiligt an der Unabhängigkeit der USA war ein Deutscher! Die Amerikaner haben das nicht vergessen und feiern ihren General deshalb jedes Jahr mit der "Steubenparade" auf der New Yorker 5th Avenue.

Zum diesjährigen Independence Day hat das Ancestry.de-Team die Historie des Unabhängigkeitskriegs der USA unter die Lupe genommen und erinnert an einen Mann der in Deutschland heute kaum mehr bekannt ist: Der im September 1730 in Thüringen geborene Sohn eines Hauptmanns, "Friedrich Wilhelm Ludolf Gerhard Augustin von Steuben", hat tatkräftig an der Unabhängigkeit der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika mitgetan. Die von Steuben waren eine traditionsbewusste Soldatenfamilie. Und auch der prominente Patenonkel passt ins martialische Bild der handfesten Sippe: Soldatenkönig Friedrich Wilhelm I. von Preußen.

Based on the authoritative American Heritage ® Dictionary of the English Language, Fifth Edition, this new edition of the American Heritage ® Desk Dictionary has been completely updated; every single entry has been reviewed and revised as necessary. Its thousands of new words and senses, such as antiquark, earbud, and the verb sense of friend, reflect recent developments in the sciences, technology, and popular culture. Hundreds of photographs and drawings enhance the text, and several tables such as the periodic table of the elements and a table of units of measurement provide helpful data in a useful visual format.

Forming the heart of the dictionary, however, are its more than 70,000 entry words, whose clear, straightforward definitions—supplemented by pronunciations, inflections of irregular verbs and plural nouns, and selected etymologies—make the American Heritage ® Desk Dictionary an essential reference for the office, school, or home.

Kurzbeschreibung
Sometime about 30,000 years ago, somebody stuck a sharp rock into a split stick—and presto! The axe was born. Our inquisitive species just loves tinkering, testing, and pushing the limits, and this delightfully different book is a freewheeling reference to hundreds of customs, notions, and inventions that reflect human ingenuity throughout history.

From hand tools to holidays to weapons to washing machines, An Uncommon History of Common Things features hundreds of colorful illustrations, timelines, sidebars, and more as it explores just about every subject under the sun. Who knew that indoor plumbing has been around for 4,600 years, but punctuation, capital letters, and the handy spaces between written words only date back to the Dark Ages? Or that ancient soldiers baked a kind of pizza on their shields—when they weren’t busy flying kites to frighten their foes?

Every page of this quirky compendium catalogs something fascinating, surprising, or serendipitous. A lively, incomparably browsable read for history buffs, pop culture lovers, and anyone who relishes the odd and extraordinary details hidden in the everyday, it will inform, amuse, astonish—and alter the way you think about the clever creatures we call humans.

C.H.BECK ISBN 978-3-406-63967-8
Erschienen: 23.08.2012, sofort lieferbar!

Bernd Stövers große Geschichte der USA verbindet virtuos die politische und militärische Geschichte der Supermacht mit der Geschichte ihrer Wirtschaft und Kultur und lässt so den Amerikanischen Traum, aber auch die vielen Widersprüche des Landes besser verstehen. Die erste „Histoire totale“ der USA seit Jahrzehnten – und ein Muss für alle, die Amerika nicht kalt lässt.

Vom Tellerwäscher zum Millionär: Der Mythos vom Land der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten ist bis heute lebendig. Bernd Stöver geht den historischen Wurzeln des American Dream nach, aber auch den vielen Widersprüchen in der amerikanischen Geschichte: Sklaverei und Völkermord an den Indianern auf der einen Seite und Philanthropie auf der anderen, globale Massenkultur und subversive Gegenkulturen, Weltoffenheit und Patriotismus. Die Darstellung führt von der Entstehung der ersten Kolonie 1585 über die Amerikanische Revolution und den blutigen Bürgerkrieg bis hin zum Aufstieg der USA zur atomaren Supermacht im 20. Jahrhundert und zu den gegenwärtigen Kriegen und Krisen. Besonderes Augenmerk gilt dabei der Entwicklung einer amerikanischen Identität in Literatur, Musik, Kunst und Architektur, die schließlich als Superculture einen Siegeszug um die Welt antrat.

Kurzbeschreibung
Kaum ein Land polarisiert so sehr wie die USA. Sie werden bewundert, belächelt und geschmäht zugleich. Was macht dieses Land aus, das der Welt seinen Stempel aufdrückt wie kein anderes? Steve Wiegand zeigt Ihnen die Geschichte dieses Landes, er beginnt mit den Ureinwohnern, beschreibt Motivation und Engagement der Pilgerväter, den Unabhängigkeitskampf und den Bürgerkrieg. Ausführlich stellt er Politik und Gesellschaft der USA im 20. Jahrhundert dar: vom Ersten Weltkrieg bis zum Fall der Berliner Mauer. Abschließend zeigt er noch ein Amerika, das als einzige Supermacht seinen Platz in der Welt sucht. Fundiert und mit einem kritischen Blick auf Anspruch und Wirklichkeit beschreibt der Autor den Weg der USA von Sklavenhaltern bis zum ersten schwarzen Präsidenten.
