Book Synopsis After Representation? by : R. Clifton Spargo
Download or read book After Representation? written by R. Clifton Spargo and published by Rutgers University Press. This book was released on 2009-11-11 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: After Representation? explores one of the major issues in Holocaust studiesùthe intersection of memory and ethics in artistic expression, particularly within literature. As experts in the study of literature and culture, the scholars in this collection examine the shifting cultural contexts for Holocaust representation and reveal how writersùwhether they write as witnesses to the Holocaust or at an imaginative distance from the Nazi genocideùarticulate the shadowy borderline between fact and fiction, between event and expression, and between the condition of life endured in atrocity and the hope of a meaningful existence. What imaginative literature brings to the study of the Holocaust is an ability to test the limits of language and its conventions. After Representation? moves beyond the suspicion of representation and explores the changing meaning of the Holocaust for different generations, audiences, and contexts.
Book Synopsis The Cambridge Handbook of the Just War by : Larry May
Download or read book The Cambridge Handbook of the Just War written by Larry May and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2018-02-15 with total page 370 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What makes a war just? What makes a specific weapon, strategy, or decision in war just? The tradition of Just War Theory has provided answers to these questions since at least 400 AD, yet each shift in the weapons and strategies of war poses significant challenges to Just War Theory. This book assembles renowned scholars from around the world to reflect on the most pressing problems and questions in Just War Theory, and engages with all three stages of war: jus ad bellum, jus in bello, and jus post bellum. Providing detailed historical context as well as addressing modern controversies and topics including drones, Islamic jihad, and humanitarian intervention, the volume will be highly important for students and scholars of the philosophy of war as well as for others interested in contemporary global military and ethical issues.
Book Synopsis Thinking and Practicing Reconciliation by : Leo W. Riegert
Download or read book Thinking and Practicing Reconciliation written by Leo W. Riegert and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2013-12-12 with total page 280 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Thinking and Practicing Reconciliation asserts that literary representations of conflict offer important insights into processes of resolution and practices of reconciliation, and that it is crucial to bring these debates into the post-secondary classroom. The essays collected here aim to help teachers think deeply about the ways in which we can productively integrate literature on/as reconciliation into our curricula. Until recently, scholarship on teaching and learning in higher education has not been widely accepted as equal to research in other fields. This volume seeks to establish that serious analysis of pedagogical practices is not only a worthy and legitimate academic pursuit, but also that it is crucial to our professional development as researcher-educators. The essays in this volume take seriously both the academic study of literature dealing with the aftermath of gross human-rights violations and the teaching of this literature. The current generation of college-aged students is deeply affected by the proximity of violence in our global world. This collection recognizes educators’ responsibility to enable future generations to analyze conflict – whether local or global – and participate in constructive discourses of resolution. Ultimately, Thinking and Practicing Reconciliation charts a course from theory to practice and offers new perspectives on the very human endeavor of storytelling as a way to address human-rights injustices. In their focus on pedagogical strategies and frameworks, the essays in this volume also demonstrate that, as educators, our engagement with students can indeed produce practices of reconciliation that start in the classroom and move beyond it.
Book Synopsis The End of the Holocaust by : Alvin H. Rosenfeld
Download or read book The End of the Holocaust written by Alvin H. Rosenfeld and published by Indiana University Press. This book was released on 2011-04-20 with total page 326 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “An illuminating exploration that offers a worried look at Holocaust representation in contemporary culture and politics.” —H-Holocaust In this provocative work, Alvin H. Rosenfeld contends that the proliferation of books, films, television programs, museums, and public commemorations related to the Holocaust has, perversely, brought about a diminution of its meaning and a denigration of its memory. Investigating a wide range of events and cultural phenomena, such as Ronald Reagan’s 1985 visit to the German cemetery at Bitburg, the distortions of Anne Frank’s story, and the ways in which the Holocaust has been depicted by such artists and filmmakers as Judy Chicago and Steven Spielberg, Rosenfeld charts the cultural forces that have minimized the Holocaust in popular perceptions. He contrasts these with sobering representations by Holocaust witnesses such as Jean Améry, Primo Levi, Elie Wiesel, and Imre Kertész. The book concludes with a powerful warning about the possible consequences of “the end of the Holocaust” in public consciousness. “Forcefully written, as always, his new volume honors his entire life as teacher and writer attached to the principles of intellectual integrity and moral responsibility. Here, too, he demonstrates erudition and knowledge, a gift for analysis and astonishing insight. Teachers and students alike will find this book to be a great gift.” —Elie Wiesel “This remarkable new work of scholarship—written in accessible language and not in obscure academese—is exactly the Holocaust book the world needs now.” —Bill’s Faith Matters Blog “This book has monumental importance in Holocaust studies because it demands answers to the question how our culture is inscribing the Holocaust in its history and memory.” —Arcadia

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This resource guide will help readers locate over 800 first-person accounts, fiction, poetry, art interpretations, and music by Holocaust victims and survivors, as well as videos relating the testimony and experiences of Holocaust survivors. In addition to the few well-known writers, artists, and musicians whose work so eloquently captures their experience during the Holocaust, this guide will introduce the reader to the lives and work of more than 250 lesser known or unrecognized writers, artists, and musicians from many countries who documented their experience of persecution at the hands of the Nazis. This guide will help students gain firsthand knowledge of what it was like to experience the Holocaust and how ordinary people coped and created art and meaning from the ashes of their lives. The entry on each writer, artist, and musician features a biographical sketch and list of his or her works, with full bibliographic data. Entries on literature and videos are annotated and include recommendations for age-appropriateness. The work is divided into five parts: writers of memoirs, diaries and fiction; poets; artists; composers and musicians; and videos that feature testimony by survivors. Each part features an introductory overview of the artists and art created in that genre out of Holocaust experience. Title, artist/writer, and nationality indexes will help the reader select materials, and an index organized by age-appropriate levels will help teachers and librarians to select literature and videos for students.

Book Synopsis Yambo Ouologuem by : Christopher Wise
Download or read book Yambo Ouologuem written by Christopher Wise and published by Lynne Rienner Publishers. This book was released on 1999 with total page 276 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the appearance of Bound to Violence in the late 1960s, Yambo Ouologuem has been one of Africa's most controversial writers. For some critics, the young Malian signaled an entirely new direction for African letters: a fiercely courageous postindependence literature. For others, his novel revealed too much, bringing to light horrors many preferred to ignore. Today Ouologuem is credited with delivering the final death-blow to Senghorian negritude, thus clearing the way for a more honest literature divested of the longing for a false African past. This book gathers the most important essays on Ouologuem from critics on three continents. Wise also includes his recent interviews with the reclusive author and a companion essay on Ouologuem's present life among the Tidjaniya Muslims of northern Mali.
Book Synopsis A Library of the World's Best Literature - Ancient and Modern - Vol.XXI (Forty-Five Volumes); Jefferson-Kinglake by : Charles Dudley Warner
Download or read book A Library of the World's Best Literature - Ancient and Modern - Vol.XXI (Forty-Five Volumes); Jefferson-Kinglake written by Charles Dudley Warner and published by Cosimo, Inc.. This book was released on 2008-06-01 with total page 410 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Popular American essayist, novelist, and journalist CHARLES DUDLEY WARNER (1829-1900) was renowned for the warmth and intimacy of his writing, which encompassed travelogue, biography and autobiography, fiction, and more, and influenced entire generations of his fellow writers. Here, the prolific writer turned editor for his final grand work, a splendid survey of global literature, classic and modern, and it's not too much to suggest that if his friend and colleague Mark Twain-who stole Warner's quip about how "everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it"-had assembled this set, it would still be hailed today as one of the great achievements of the book world. Highlights from Volume 21 include: . the writings of Thomas Jefferson, including the Declaration of Independence . the letters of Samuel Johnson . the writings of Ben Jonson . selections from the historical writings of Josephus . selections from Juvenal . excerpts from the Kabbalah . the philosophy of Immanuel Kant . the poems of John Keats . the religious devotions of Thomas Kempis . and much, much more.
