The Nation As a Local Metaphor: Wurttemberg, Imperial by Alon Confino

By Alon Confino

All countries make themselves up as they move alongside, yet no longer all make themselves up within the comparable manner. during this research, Alon Confino explores how Germans became nationwide and argues that they imagined the kingdom as an extension in their neighborhood position. In 1871, the paintings of political unification have been accomplished, yet Germany remained a patchwork of areas with diverse histories and traditions. Germans needed to build a countrywide reminiscence to reconcile the peculiarities of the quarter and the totality of the state. This id venture, tested through Confino because it developed within the southwestern country of WArttemberg, oscillated among failure and luck. The nationwide vacation of Sedan Day failed within the 1870s and Eighties to symbolically commingle localness and nationhood. Later, the assumption of the Heimat, or fatherland, did end up in a position to representing interchangeably the locality, the sector, and the kingdom in a special nationwide narrative and in visible photos. The German nationhood venture was once profitable, argues Confino, simply because Germans made the kingdom into a regular, neighborhood adventure via quite a few cultural kinds, together with museums, college textbooks, renowned poems, go back and forth publications, posters, and postcards. however it used to be no longer distinctive. Confino situates German nationhood in the higher context of modernity, and in doing so he increases broader questions about how humans within the glossy global use the previous within the building of identity.

Die kranken Habsburger: Befunde und Befindlichkeiten einer by Hans Bankl

By Hans Bankl

Nach dem großen Erfolg seines Buches "Der Pathologe weiß alles ... aber zu spät" setzt sich der stets zu einem Bonmot bereite Hans Bankl hier mit Österreichs liebster Familie auseinander: den Habsburgern. In seinem unerschöpflichen Fundus an Krankengeschichten, Autopsieberichten und medizinischen Anekdoten über berühmte Persönlichkeiten hat Hans Bankl natürlich auch so manche Köstlichkeit zu diesem Thema parat. Der Bogen spannt sich von Rudolf IV., dem Schwindler, und Friedrich III., der mit seinem "AEIOU" auch als Quizmaster in die Geschichte einging, über Gepflogenheiten im Hause der "stattlichen Landesmutter" Maria Theresia und die erotischen Eskapaden der Isabella von Bourbon-Parma bis zur Pedanterie Kaiser Franz Josephs und der tragischen Persönlichkeit Kronprinz Rudolfs. Kurze Geschichten und knappe Porträts, schrille Anekdoten und bemerkenswerte Zitate sind es, mit denen der Autor ein ungewöhnliches, ein wenig desprektierliches, aber doch liebevoll koloriertes Bild einer Familie zeichnet, deren Schicksale auch heute noch die Gemüter bewegen.
