Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Mit dem vorliegenden Band widmet sich Dieter Flach dem Dialogus des Cornelius Tacitus. In einer ausfuehrlichen Einleitung ordnet der Herausgeber den Text in das Gesamtwerk seines Verfassers ein. Flach arbeitet das Anliegen des Tacitus heraus, das er mit seiner Schrift verfolgt, und die Rollen, die er den Teilnehmern des Streitgesprachs zuweist. In der Textausgabe vermeidet Flach alle tiefen und unnotigen Eingriffe in das Werk. Zahlebige Deutungsfehler werden berichtigt und behutsame Verbesserungen vorgeschlagen, die Flach im Fuanotenapparat und in knappen Zusatzen zu seiner Ubersetzung erlautert und begruendet. Nachvollziehbar klart er Streit- und Zweifelsfragen in der deutschen Wiedergabe des lateinischen Wortlauts.

The End Of Reform

New Deal Liberalism in Recession and War

At a time when liberalism is in disarray, this vastly illuminating book locates the origins of its crisis. Those origins, says Alan Brinkley, are paradoxically situated during the second term of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, whose New Deal had made liberalism a fixture of American politics and society. The End of Reform shows how the liberalism of the early New Deal—which set out to repair and, if necessary, restructure America’s economy—gave way to its contemporary counterpart, which is less hostile to corporate capitalism and more solicitous of individual rights. Clearly and dramatically, Brinkley identifies the personalities and events responsible for this transformation while pointing to the broader trends in American society that made the politics of reform increasingly popular. It is both a major reinterpretation of the New Deal and a crucial map of the road to today’s political landscape.

Geschichte des Westens

Der Westen – seit dem Zeitalter der Entdeckungen ist er gleichsam das welthistorische Maß aller Dinge. Er hat fremde Reiche erobert und ganze Kontinente unterworfen, die Erde bis in ihre entlegensten Winkel erschlossen, die Naturwissenschaften und die moderne Technik hervorgebracht, die Menschen- und Bürgerrechte, die Herrschaft des Rechts und die Demokratie erfunden. Aber er hat auch oft genug seine Werte verraten, Freiheit gepredigt und Habgier gemeint und mit dem Kapitalismus eine Ökonomisierung aller Lebensverhältnisse entfesselt, die bis heute die Menschheit in Atem hält. In einem grandiosen Panorama erzählt Heinrich August Winkler zum erstenmal überhaupt die Geschichte des Westens – und damit auch die Geschichte unserer eigenen Identität. „Eine Geschichte der westlichen Welt, wie sie hier präsentiert wird, gab es bislang nicht.“ Volker Ullrich, Deutschlandfunk „Dem Berliner Historiker ist mit der ‚Geschichte des Westens’ ein unzeitgemäßes Meisterwerk gelungen.“ Jürgen Osterhammel, Rheinischer Merkur

The Many Panics of 1837

People, Politics, and the Creation of a Transatlantic Financial Crisis

In the spring of 1837, people panicked as financial and economic uncertainty spread within and between New York, New Orleans and London. Although the period of panic would dramatically influence political, cultural and social history, those who panicked sought to erase from history their experiences of one of America's worst early financial crises. The Many Panics of 1837 reconstructs this period in order to make arguments about the national boundaries of history, the role of information in the economy, the personal and local nature of national and international events, the origins and dissemination of economic ideas, and most importantly, what actually happened in 1837. This riveting transatlantic cultural history, based on archival research on two continents, reveals how people transformed their experiences of financial crisis into the 'Panic of 1837', a single event that would serve as a turning point in American history and an early inspiration for business cycle theory.

Acclaimed historian Alan Brinkley gives us a sharply realized portrait of Henry Luce, arguably the most important publisher of the twentieth century. As the founder of Time, Fortune, and Life magazines, Luce changed the way we consume news and the way we understand our world. Born the son of missionaries, Henry Luce spent his childhood in rural China, yet he glimpsed a milieu of power altogether different at Hotchkiss and later at Yale. While working at a Baltimore newspaper, he and Brit Hadden conceived the idea of Time: a “news-magazine” that would condense the week’s events in a format accessible to increasingly busy members of the middle class. They launched it in 1923, and young Luce quickly became a publishing titan. In 1936, after Time’s unexpected success—and Hadden’s early death—Luce published the first issue of Life, to which millions soon subscribed. Brinkley shows how Luce reinvented the magazine industry in just a decade. The appeal of Life seemingly cut across the lines of race, class, and gender. Luce himself wielded influence hitherto unknown among journalists. By the early 1940s, he had come to see his magazines as vehicles to advocate for America’s involvement in the escalating international crisis, in the process popularizing the phrase “World War II.” In spite of Luce’s great success, happiness eluded him. His second marriage—to the glamorous playwright, politician, and diplomat Clare Boothe—was a shambles. Luce spent his later years in isolation, consumed at times with conspiracy theories and peculiar vendettas. The Publisher tells a great American story of spectacular achievement—yet it never loses sight of the public and private costs at which that achievement came. From the Hardcover edition.

A People's History of the Civil War

Bottom-up history at its very best, A People’s History of the Civil War "does for the Civil War period what Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States did for the study of American history in general" (Library Journal). Widely praised upon its initial release, it was described as "meticulously researched and persuasively argued" by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Historian David Williams has written the first account of the American Civil War though the eyes of ordinary people—foot soldiers, slaves, women, prisoners of war, draft resisters, Native Americans, and others. Richly illustrated with little-known anecdotes and first-hand testimony, this pathbreaking narrative moves beyond presidents and generals to tell a new and powerful story about America’s most destructive conflict. A People’s History of the Civil War is "readable social history" that "sheds fascinating light" (Publishers Weekly) on this crucial period. In so doing it recovers the long-overlooked perspectives and forgotten voices of one of the defining chapters of American history.
