Book Summary:

En serie mystiska dödsfall inträffar i Moskva och runt om i världen härjar ett virus med 100 procents dödlighet. Agenten Jon Smith finner att spåren leder till den ryska militären … Jon Smith är en arméläkare specialiserad på infektionssjukdomar. Han är också agent i den hemliga säkerhetstjänsten Covert-One. Under en konferens i Moskva kontaktas han av en kollega, Dr. Petrenko. Dr. Petrenko är bekymrad över en serie mystiska dödsfall och framför allt är han bekymrad över den ryska regeringens ovilja att lämna ut information. När de två vännerna möts för att utbyta information attackeras de av en grupp män och Petrenko mördas. Alla hans dokument och medicinska prover försvinner och Jon Smith undkommer mördarna med en hårsmån. Samtidigt dör regeringstjänstemän runt om i världen av ett mystiskt virus. På något vis hör dödsfallen samman med den snabbt växande ryska militären som leds av president Victor Dudarev. Med få ledtrådar och lite tid måste Smith och Covert-One hitta svaren på alla frågor och ta reda på vem som är huvudpersonen i denna härva av dödsfall, militärer och virusspridning.

Book Summary:

Grev Alexander Rostov, hofjægermester og ridder af Skt. Andreasordenen, residerer allerede i suite 317 på Hotel Metropol i Moskva, da han i foråret 1922 bliver stillet for ’Hastekomitéen under folkets intendantur for indre anliggender’ anklaget for at have skrevet et digt (og for ikke at ville fralægge sig sine adelstitler). Det er i årene umiddelbart efter Den Russiske Revolution, og Rostov idømmes livslang husarrest på hotellet. Træder han uden for hoveddøren, vil han blive skudt ned på stedet. Alexander Rostov er en dannet og vidende mand med et ukueligt sind, men han har aldrig rørt en finger i hele sit liv. Nu skal han stige de 110 trin op til et lille hummer under loftet hver aften og ned igen hver morgen for at gå til hånde på hotellet. Det gør han i de næste fire årtier, og det kunne lyde som en trist skæbne. For grev Rostov bliver det en gave, og for de mange fantastiske mennesker omkring ham bliver det en fest. Om forfatteren: Amor Towles er født i Boston, Massachusetts i 1964. Han arbejdede i finanssektoren på Manhattan i mere end 20 år inden han i 2011 debuterede med romanen Rules of civility, der foregår under børskrakket i 30'ernes New York. Romanen blev en New York Times-bestseller og kåret som en af årets bedste bøger i The Wall Street Journal.

Book Summary:

Hitlers vanvittige vinteroffensiv i Rusland var et mareridt af blodsudgydelser, brutalitet og afsavn. Men tilbagetoget var endnu værre ... Anført af oberst Dietz blev det 69. infanteriregiment – bestående af grønne rekrutter samlet omkring en lille hård kerne af veteraner, der havde fået deres ilddåb under angrebet i Polen – kastet ind i det uhyggelige felttog. Ingen var forberedt på det, de ville blive udsat for under marchen mod Moskva - eller det uhyggelige tilbagetog, hvor de måtte kæmpe mod de vilde kosakker, ulve og Stalins dødsbrigade ... Charles Whiting (1926-2007) var en britisk forfatter, der både skrev skøn- og faglitteratur. I løbet af sin lange forfatterkarriere skrev han omkring 350 bøger både i sit eget navn, men også under en lang række pseudonymer (heriblandt Leo Kessler og Klaus Konrad). Whiting fik sin litterære romandebut med "The Frat Wagon" (1954). Herefter udgav Whiting en række krigsromaner, før han i 1967 begyndte at skrive faglitteratur, samtidig med at han skrev og udgav skønlitterære værker. Serien omhandler umulige missioner og krigssituationer fra Anden Verdenskrig; blandt andet SS Angrebsbataljonen Wotan under ledelse af den berygtede oberst Kuno von Dodenburg. Sammen må de kæmpe sig ud af den ene umulige mission efter den anden, imens krigen raser, og modstanderne rykker tættere og tættere på.

Book Summary:

"I denna bok har jag velat skriva en politisk historia underifrån. En historia som utgår från två personer som valde att inte göra politisk karriär i formell mening, men som har levt enormt rika och aktiva politiska liv." Berättelsen om Greta och Bengt Segerson är en historia om det äkta parets politiska liv. Baserat på intervjuer med paret skriver Jonas Sjöstedt deras historia, och skildrar samtidigt arbetarklassens livsvillkor, vänsterpartiets utveckling och parets ständiga kamp för sina kommunistiska övertygelser. Historien tar avstamp i arbetarklassens Masthugget, och fortsätter in i Sovjet och spanska inbördeskriget. I bakgrunden finns Säpo, som med övervakning och samtal håller sig underrättade om parets aktivitet. Jonas Sjöstedt (f. 1964) är en svensk politiker, skribent och författare. Han var ledamot i Europaparlamentet mellan 1995–2006 och blev 2012 partiledare för Vänsterpartiet. Sjöstedt debuterade som skönlitterär författare 2009 med boken Sammanflöden.

Book Summary:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Russistik / Slavistik, Note: 1,3, Universität Hamburg (Institut für Slavistik), Veranstaltung: Heilige, Idioten, Narren und Sonderlinge in der russischen Literatur, 8 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Christusnarren - oder jurodivye,wie sie im Verlaufe dieser Arbeit genannt werden sollen - haben ein lange Tradition in Russland und galten schon in der alten Rus‘ als feste Bestandteile von Dorfgemeinschaften. Zunächst heidnischen Ursprungs vermischte sich das Schamanenhafte, das ihnen eigen war, mit christlichen Elementen. Ihr Verhalten gleicht einem freiwilligen Martyrium; aus der Gesellschaft ausgeschieden, begibt sich derjurodivyjauf seine christliche Mission, die allgemeinen Missstände in der Gesellschaft durch sehr eigensinnige Methoden aufzuzeigen. Erkenntnis- und Wahrheitssuche sind dabei die hohen Ziele, die der jurodivyjv erfolgt. Die Poėma „Moskva - Petuški“ entstanden 1969 und durften erst 1989 in Russland veröffentlicht werden. In ihnen spiegeln sich Tendenzen jenes Dissidententums, das dem Autor Venedikt Erofeev zu Zeiten der Sowjetdiktatur vorgehalten wurde. Seine Figur „Venička“ fährt gleich einem Vagabunden mit dem Vorortzug von Moskau nach Petuški und schildert dem Leser seine kontroversen Weltanschauungen. Sein Stigma und seine Maske ist die fortwährende Alkoholisiertheit: Moralische Bewertungen und Einschätzungen erfahren ihre jeweilige Kanalisierung, wenn die entsprechende Trunkenheit eingetreten ist. Schon in der alten Rus‘ bestand eine gewisse Äquivalenz zwischen Narrheit und Trunkenheit - so würden sich Betrunkene von Narren nur durch ihre sittliche Unreinheit unterscheiden, der Betrunkene aber offene Ehrlichkeit demonstrieren. Die von der Figur Venička evozierten Werte und Überzeugungen wirken mitunter paradox und unsinnig. Seine Berichte sind von provokativem Gehalt und die Vermutung liegt nahe, dass sich hier des Gestus des klassischen jurodivyj bedient worden sein könnte. Nach Aufschlüsselung der fürjurodivyegemeinhin geltenden Charakteristika soll untersucht werden, inwiefern Venička einem jurodivyj ähnlich ist.

Book Summary:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Russistik / Slavistik, Note: 1,7, Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg (Institut für Slavistik), Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar: Alkohol in der russischen Literatur, 12 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Und ich trank unverzüglich“ . Diese Wörter bilden das sechste Kapitel von Moskva – Petuški, aber sie könnten sich auch genauso gut auf das ganze Werk beziehen. Auf den ersten Blick ist Venedikt Erofeevs „Poem“ nur ein unendliches Saufgelage von der ersten Seite bis zur letzten. Doch der alkoholische Unheld der Geschichte, Venička, hat uns mit seinen scharfsinnigen Beobachtungen und tiefen Emotionen viel zu bieten. Im Werk sind viele Hinweise zu finden, dass Venička aus verschiedenen Gründen, hauptsächlich wegen seines Trinkens, sich schämt – diese Scham wird auf unterschiedliche Weisen ausgedrückt, die hier erläutert und untersucht werden sollen. In dieser Arbeit sollen zunächst einige Hintergrundsinformationen über Alkohol in der sowjetischen Zeit (die Zeit in der die Handlung des Werkes sich abspielt) gegeben werden. Dann werden ein Paar Worte zu dem Autor und zur Entstehung des Buches gesagt werden. Im vierten Teil folgt eine Beschreibung des Hauptcharakters und der möglichen Gründe, warum er trinkt. Im Hauptteil der Arbeit soll über die Darstellung von Scham die Rede sein und darüber, wie Venička mit seiner Scham umgeht.

Book Summary:

Lyric Incarnate examines the plays of Aleksandr Blok, the pre-eminent poet of Russian Symbolism and one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century. Blok's plays have received less attention than his poetry in the West, and this book is the first and only English-language monograph devoted to Blok the playwright. In chronological succession, each of Blok's major plays is examined in detail. Special attention is accorded to Blok's relations with the major directors of his time, particularly Meyerhold and Stanislavsky. Blok's role, for instance, in Meyerhold's formulation of the theatre of the grotesque proved to be critical, and his relation to the Moscow Art Theatre just before the October Revolution helped to define the future course of that theatre. Blok's innovative dramatic technique is carefully studied at each stage in his career, from his earliest "lyric dramas" , such as A Puppet Show and The Stranger, to his great tragedy The Rose and the Cross.

Book Summary:

"Man ser människor dödas och några är nära vänner och man ser de gråtande mödrarna och de sönderbrända barnen och liken som sväller upp efter några dagar och man säger sig själv: Varför skulle inte jag dö om så många andra dör? Blir man inte skjuten så träffas man kanske av granatsplitter eller så trampar man på en landmina eller så krossas man under ett nedfallande hus. Sätten att dö är många. Jag nämner de vanligaste." Daniel Nilsson, eller Dan Nelson, som han kallas efter att en amerikansk tidning stavat fel på hans namn i tryck, är stillbildsfotograf för en svensk dagstidning. Han har alltid följt sin egna strikta arbetskod. Dokumentera, men kom inte för nära. Fotografen är ett öga, en tom enhet som blickar över världen.

Book Summary:

Whilst terms such as Lebensraum are commonly associated with National-Socialist ideology of the 1930s and 40s, ideas of racial living space were in fact generated in the previous decades by an international geographic community of explorers and academics. Focusing on one of the most influential figures within this group, Sven Hedin, this is the first study that systematically connects the geographic community to the intellectual history of the development of National-Socialist ideology and genocidal practices. The book demonstrates how colonial, racial and nationalistic policies were often spearheaded by explorers and geographers such as Hedin. In Germany, Britain, France, and Russia their positions as publicly recognized authors and reputable academics made them highly influential with politicians. Whilst this influence was to become most visible within Hitler's Germany, the debates were not by any means restricted to or even originated in, Germany. Germany was the home of some of the most prominent geographers, but this scientific community had a tradition of international debate and exchange with especially British, French and Russian geographic societies and institutions. Many issues that were later discussed and championed by National-Socialist ideology were aired and debated in this international setting - raising important questions about the international character and impact of National-Socialism. Tracing the intellectual history of the international geographic community and its relationship to National-Socialism, this study provides an assessment of Hedin's close involvement with the Nazi elite as a culmination of decades of political and scientific work. In so doing the book uncovers a long ignored or overlooked important connection between exploration, geographers, and genocide.

Book Summary:

In Russia at the turn of the twentieth century, printed literature and performances - from celebrity narratives and opera fandom to revolutionary acts and political speeches - frequently articulated extreme emotional states and passionate belief. A uniquely intense approach to public life and private expression - the 'melodramatic imagination' - is at the center of this study. Previously, scholars have only indirectly addressed the everyday appropriation of melodramatic aesthetics in Russia, choosing to concentrate on canonical texts and producers of mass culture. Collective fantasies and affects are daunting objects of study, difficult to render, and almost impossible to prove empirically. Music and art historians, with some notable exceptions, have been reluctant to discuss reception for similar reasons. By analyzing the artifacts and practices of a commercialized opera culture, author Anna Fishzon provides a solution to these challenges. Her focus on celebrity and fandom as features of the melodramatic imagination helps illuminate Russian modernity and provides the groundwork for comparative studies of fin-de-siècle European popular and high culture, selfhood, authenticity, and political theater.

Book Summary:

Perched above the confluence of two great rivers, the Sava and Danube, Belgrade has been home to many civilizations: Celts, Romans, Byzantines, Bulgars, Magyars, Ottomans and Serbs. A Turkish fortress, the focus for a Serbian principality, an intellectual and artistic center, the city grew until it became capital of Yugoslavia. Now it is one of the largest cities in south-eastern Europe and capital of the Republic of Serbia. Despite many challenges, Belgrade has resisted assimilation and created a unique cultural identity out of its many contrasting sides, sometimes with surprising consequences.

Geographies of Muslim Identities

Book Summary:

In recent years, geographies of identities, including those of ethnicity, religion, 'race' and gender, have formed an increasing focus of contemporary human geography. The events of September 11th, 2001 particularly illustrated the ways in which identities can be transformed across time and space by both global and local events of a social, cultural, political and economic nature. Such transformations have also demonstrated the temporal and spatial construction of hate and fear, and of increasing incidences of 'Islamophobia' through the construction of Muslims as 'the Other'. As the social scientific study of religion continues to be marginalized within mainstream scholarship, there remains an important gap in the literature. This timely book addresses this gap by collecting a range of cutting-edge contributions from the social, cultural, political, historical and economic sub-disciplines of geography, together with writings from gender studies, cultural studies and leisure studies where research has revealed a strong spatial dimension to the construction, representation, contestation and reworking of Muslim identities. The contributors illustrate the ways in which such identities are constructed, represented, negotiated and contested in everyday life in a wide variety of international contexts, focusing upon issues connected with diaspora, gender and belonging.
