"Guilty Victim explores Austria's search for an internationally credible identity for itself after the Nazi era. But Hella Pick shows how the old ghosts will not go away. It is not just the saga of President Kurt Waldheim's Nazi past which has haunted Austria's graceful glide to rehabilitation and respectability. The spectacular success of Jorg Haider and his far right-wing politics have raised grave worries inside and outside Austria. How will Haider's xenophobia and the dangers of revisionism towards the third Reich sit in the new Europe, where Austria has gained a respected place ?" "Guilty Victim provides sobering insights into one of the most troubling questions facing Europe today."--BOOK JACKET.

First published in 1998. This is the only up to date English language work which seeks to assess the whole of the post war Austrian experience in the light of the latest research, using a multi-disciplinary approach by historians, political scientists, economists, international relations specialists and literary historians. It is addressed not only to specialists in Austrian affairs, but also to studies and scholars concerned with the evaluation of small democracies, their place in an integrated continent and the shape of post-Communist Central Europe. The formative first few decades of the Second Republic are reassessed in four contributions: analysis of the key actors and events involved in the genesis of post war state; of the activities of Karl Renner’s first coalition government; of how tensions regarding Austrian identity were played out in post-war literature and of the competing domestic and superpower perceptions of Austria’s fledging neutrality.

Warfare Since the Second World War presents a wealth of analysis and data about one of the most pressing questions of our time: why does war continue to plague us fifty years after World War II? This book argues that the nature of war has shifted from inter-state conflicts toward internal conflicts, above all civil war. Low-intensity conflict helps explain the constant increase in wars over the last fifty years and makes it probable this trend will continue. Gantzel and Schwinghammer argue that modern warfare reflects a continuation of the nation-state-building process begun in nineteenth-century Europe.In their analysis, economic modernization and social integration destroy traditional relations and create instability in the developing world. While these forces were successfully harnessed by the modern state in Europe and North America, economic and political globalization make a similar resolution considerably more complex. In addition to their insightful analysis, the authors provide a detailed list of all wars fought from 1945 to 1995. The authors' lucid explanatory commentaries are accompanied by lists, tables, and charts. In addition to a detailed war register, upon which all statistical data and analyses for the volume are based, there are appendices with directories useful for locating specific wars, as well as several supplementary lists. An afterword brings the reader closer to the world situation as we conclude the twentieth century; including the impact of political developments in Eastern Europe.Beyond its historical dimension, this book offers a policy-relevant empirical demonstration of the ongoing increase in internal (civil) wars and addresses the inability of modern society to prevent this scourge. Warfare Since the Second World War is an indispensable resource for anyone concerned with issues of war and peace, development, and the future of international relations.

The German authors spent ten years in southern Africa, one as a diplomat, and one an academic. They have studied here the GDR's past, notably its links with the national liberation movements in southern Africa. The record is particularly important since liberation movements largely had neither the time nor resources to keep records and documents. The study looks at the history of both sides, including the conflict-ridden evolution of the liberation movements. The GDR's interests are described in great detail, specifically the interplay of the East and West as a major factor in the GDR's foreign policy and its association with the liberation movements. This relationship is presented within the context of evolutions and internal developments within the liberation movements against the Cold War confrontation in that era.

Tomi Adeaga examines the challenges of translating African literatures into European languages, devoting care, attention and insight to the problems of translating African voices into German. This topic has been virtually ignored by scholars despite years of unevenly translated works from African into European languages. Ultimately, the work seeks to offer a dynamic justification for the relevance of reading and translating African literature. Adeaga writes with the authority of a practitioner and the passion of someone who understands the distinctive challenges of translating across cultures and histories. Tomi Adeaga is a native of Lagos Nigeria. After completing her Bachelors degree in German/French at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife, Ile-Ife, she completed her post-graduate studies in Germany. She was awarded her Masters degree in Germanistik at the Universitt in Siegen. She received another diploma in French/German translation and communication and later completed her PhD degree at the Siegerland Sprachenschule.

Alfred Wiener and the Making of the Holocaust Library combines the biography of Alfred Wiener and the history of the distinguished library and research institution he founded. From 1919, when he joined Germany's largest Jewish civil rights organisation, Wiener worked against the rising tide of right-wing extremism. With the coming to power of Hitler in 1933 he fled with his family to Amsterdam. There he set up the Jewish Central Information Office, which collected, collated and disseminated detailed information about events in Nazi Germany on a scale matched by no other organisation anywhere in the world. Moving his collection to London in 1939, Wiener made his resources available to the British government, thus providing Britain with a range and depth of intelligence about the enemy which could have come from nowhere else. Known by British civil servants as 'Dr Wiener's Library', the Jewish Central Information Office adopted the name Wiener Library after the war when Wiener recast it as an academic institution. The book explores how, in the 1950s and 1960s the Library played a pioneering role in founding the serious academic study of the Nazi era and the Holocaust. The author traces the Library's financial plight during the 1970s and the remarkable revival of its fortunes in the 1980s.

Der Sammelband dokumentiert umfassend den Sechsten Österreichischen Zeitgeschichtetag in Salzburg 2003 - und damit den aktuellen Stand der österreichischen Zeitgeschichtsforschung. Er setzt sich aus der Perspektive unterschiedlicher Disziplinen der neuen Kulturwissenschaften mit den Begriffen "Kunst - Kommunikation - Macht" auseinander. Damit rücken die kulturwissenschaftlichen Debatten der letzten Jahre systematisch ins theoretische und methodische Diskussionsfeld der österreichischen Zeitgeschichtsforschung, für die - auch das zeigt dieser Sammelband auf eindrucksvolle Weise - eine wachsende interdisziplinäre Vernetzung zu konstatieren ist. Inhaltlich spannen die Beiträge einen facettenreichen Bogen von der Ethik der Geschichtswissenschaft über NS-Kunstraub, sowjetische Kulturpolitik in Österreich von 1945-1955 oder künstlerische Widerständigkeit, Absenz und Anpassung im 20. Jahrhundert bis hin zu Geschichtsbildern im Film und Fernsehen oder zur Vermittlung von Zeitgeschichte im Internet.
