New Studies in European History: West Germany, Cold War Europe and the Algerian War
An illuminating and provocative account of Germany's role as sanctuary for Algerian nationalists during their fight for independence from France between 1954 and 1962. The book explores key issues such as the impact of external sanctuaries on French counterinsurgency efforts; the part played by security and intelligence services in efforts to eliminate these sanctuaries; the Algerian War's influence on West German foreign and security policy; and finally, the emergence of West German civic engagement in support of Algeria's independence struggle, which served to shape the newly independent country's perception of its role and place in international society. Mathilde von Bulow sheds new light on the impact of FLN activities, the role of anti-colonial movements and insurgencies in the developing world in shaping the dynamics of the Cold War as well as the manner in which the Algerian War was fought and won.

Palgrave Handbook of Critical International Political Economy
Challenging the assumptions of 'mainstream' International Political Economy (IPE), this Handbook demonstrates the considerable value of critical theory to the discipline through a series of cutting-edge studies. The field of IPE has always had an inbuilt vocation within Historical Materialism, with an explicit ambition to make sense, from a critical standpoint, of the capitalist mode of production as a world system of sometimes paradoxically and sometimes smoothly overlapping states and markets. Having spearheaded the growth of a vigorous critical scholarship in the 1960s and 1970s, however, Marxism and neo-Gramscian approaches became increasingly marginalized over the course of the 1980s. The authors respond to the exposure of limits to mainstream contemporary scholarship in the wake of the onset of the Global Financial Crisis, and provide a comprehensive overview of the field of Critical International Political Economy. Problematizing socioeconomic and political structures, and considering these as potentially transitory and subject to change, the contributors aim not simply to understand a world of conflict, but furthermore to uncover the ways in which purportedly objective analyses reflect the interests of those in positions of privilege and power.

In Our Time Pb
When British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain returned from his Munich meetings with Adolf Hitler in September 1938, he proclaimed that he held in his hands a document guaranteeing peace in our time. In the decades since, Chamberlain's folly has become the occasion for a commonplace historical lesson: that when the good innocently accept the assurances of the evil, the result is catastrophic. Clement Leibovitz and Alvin Finkel challenge the familiar understanding of Munich as the product of a naive appeasement of Nazi appetites. They argue that it was the culmination of cynical collaboration between the Tory government and the Nazis in the 1930s. Based upon a careful reading of official and unofficial correspondence, conference notes, cabinet minutes, and diaries, In Our Time documents the steps taken under diplomatic cover by the West to strike a bargain with Hitler based upon shared anti-Soviet premises. Munich, write the authors, formalized what had been an informal understanding between Britain and Germany to that point, with France, with varying degrees of enthusiasm and reluctance, concurring: Germany could do as it wished in central and eastern Europe and the democracies were not to intervene, particularly should Germany carry its warfare to the Soviet Union. Gripping, direct, and detailed, In Our Time overturns the conventional wisdom about World War II, its roots, and its lessons. With profound implications for understanding international relations in the Cold War and after, it sheds new light on a signal event of the twentieth century.

Kultur des Eigentums, als dritter Band der Reihe Bibliothek des Eigentums strebt an, in vielen Variationen uber das Grundthema Eigentum nachzudenken, sein Versprechen und seine Gefahrdungen. Denn die Kultur des Eigentums hat vielerlei Auspragungen, von den altesten wie Grund und Boden bis zu den neuesten wie Patentwesen und Copyright. Nichts davon ist abschliessend gesichert, sondern muss Tag fur Tag vertreten werden, gerechtfertigt und verteidigt. Dieses Buch beleuchtet in der Perspektive des Eigentums die geistesgeschichtliche Lage der Gegenwart und leitet den Blick auf die Zukunft. Nicht zufallig ist der Anlass der Entstehung dieses Bandes: Der 75. Geburtstag der Bausparkasse Schwabisch Hall im Mai 2006 eine Institution die eben ein Dreivierteljahrhundert fur Eigentumsbildung und Eigentumskultur uber Deutschland hinaus steht.

Heidegger, Philosophy, and Politics: The Heidelberg Conference
In February 1988, philosophers Jacques Derrida, Hans-Georg Gadamer, and Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe came together in Heidelberg before a large audience to discuss the philosophical and political implications of Martin Heidegger's thought. This event took place in the very amphitheater in which, more than fifty years earlier, Heidegger, as rector of the University of Freiburg and a member of the Nazi Party, had given a speech entitled The University in the New Reich. Heidegger's involvement in Nazism has always been, and will remain, an indelible scandal, but what is its real relation to his work and thought? And what are the responsibilities of those who read this work, who analyze and elaborate this thought? Conversely, what is at stake in the wholesale dismissal of this important but compromised twentieth-century philosopher? In 1988, in the wake of the recent publication of Victor Farias's Heidegger and Nazism, and of the heated debates that ensued, these questions had become more pressing than ever. The reflections presented by three of the most prominent of Heidegger's readers, improvised in French and transcribed here, were an attempt to approach these questions before a broad public, but with a depth of knowledge and a complex sense of the questions at issue that have been often lacking in the press. Ranging over two days and including exchanges with one another and with the audience, the discussions pursued by these major thinkers remain highly relevant today, especially following the publication of Heidegger's already notorious Black Notebooks, which have added another chapter to the ongoing debates over this contested figure. The present volume recalls a highly charged moment in this history, while also drawing the debate toward its most essential questions.

A Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings IV: Self-Portraits
Volume IV of A Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings deals uniquely with the self-portraits of Rembrandt. In a clearly written explanatory style the head of the Rembrandt Research Project and Editor of this Volume, Ernst van de Wetering, discusses the full body of work of paintings and etchings portraying Rembrandt. He sets the different parameters for accepting or rejecting a Rembrandt self-portrait as such, whilst also discussing the exact working environment of Rembrandt and his apprentices. This workshop setting created a surroundings where apprentices could be involved in working on Rembrandt paintings making it more difficult to determine the hand of the master. Van de Wetering, who is one of the Rembrandt experts of our day and age, goes down to great detail to explain how the different self-portraits are made and what techniques Rembrandt uses, also giving an overview of which paintings are to be attributed to the Dutch Master and which not. In the additional catalogue the self-portraits are examined in detail. In clear and accessible explanatory text the different paintings are discussed, larded with immaculate images of each painting. Details are shown where possible, as well as the results of modern day technical imaging like X-radiography. This work of art history and art research should be part of every serious art historical institute, university or museum. Nowhere in the art history have all Rembrandt's self portraits been discussed in such detailed and comparative manner by an authority such as Ernst van de Wetering. This is a standard work for decades to come.

Ideas in Action: Political Tradition in the Twentieth Century
Imagine a world in which means and ends, theory and practice, ideals, values, and interests, are torturously disassociated and yet manifestly linked. That is the world of the 20th century as Stephen Eric Bronner vividly portrays it in his important new work. Now imagine a world in which new traditions mix with the old, creativity blends with commitment, and values from the past combine with bold visions of the future. Creating this new fusion, says Professor Bronner, is the challenge for the 21st century and it inspires Ideas in Action. Contemporary political theory has become alienated from politics. It often neither discusses concrete political events nor touches the world of political action. That is an intellectual luxury the academy of the 21st century can ill-afford, and Ideas in Action offers an accessible way out of the box into which the canon of political theory and philosophy has been stuffed. With elegance and power, Bronner surveys 20th century political traditions. In the process, he places theories and thinkers in their social, historical, and political contexts. His sweeping presentation is organized into four imaginatively articulated phases that signal the direction of political thinking in the twentieth century. Offering distinctive interpretations and criticisms, presenting a new internationalist perspective, Bronner imbues the text with original voices and primary sources from the very canon he is reconfiguring. Careful notes of citation and explanation provide a pedagogical subtext that serves as a running bibliographic essay. All this and more makes

Uncertain Transition: Ethnographies of Change in the Postsocialist World
The ethnographies collected here offer a surprising and compelling picture of change in Russia and Eastern Europe found in no other book to date. Looking at the everyday processes by which individuals and groups forge new lives, the authors challenge the idea that we can understand this transformation by the predictable models_whether capitalism, post-socialism, modernity, or postmodernity. The collection brings together a wide-ranging group of authors from sociology, anthropology, and political science to reveal the complex relationships that still exist between the former socialist world and the world today. Through evocative ethnographic research and writing, they bring to light the unintended consequences of change and show how the 'slates' of the past enter the present not as legacies_but as novel adaptations. Often what appear as 'restorations' of patterns familiar from socialism are something quite different: direct responses to the new market initiatives. By showing the unexpected ways in which these new patterns are emerging, this book charts a new and important course for the study of post-socialist transition.

Leonhard Euler: Ein Mann, MIT Dem Man Rechnen Kann
In seinem Kopf stellte er die mathematische Welt auf den Kopf. Er berechnete Flussigkeitsstromungen, das Tragheitsmoment, entwickelte die Variationsrechnung und die moderne Zahlentheorie. Als Wissenschaftler steht er auf einer Stufe mit Newton und Einstein. Konstrukteure in aller Welt arbeiten tagtaglich mit seinen Formeln egal ob es um den Schiffsrumpf der Alinghi geht oder um die Schwingungen des Viaduc de Millau, der Welt hochster Autobahnbrucke. Dabei war er ein Mensch, der burgerliche Behaglichkeit und Ruhe liebte. Nicht ganz einfach zur Grundungszeit von St. Petersburg inmitten russischer Kaisermorde oder im Berlin zur Zeit der schlesischen Kriege. Und erst recht nicht inmitten einer grossen Kinderschar. Der Comic von Elena Pini (Graphik) und Alice und Andreas K. Heyne (Text) zeichnet das Leben des genialen Baslers nach, der vor 300 Jahren geboren wurde, mit zwanzig Jahren seine Heimatstadt verliess und nie wieder zuruckkehrte.
