Debating German Cultural Identity since 1989
The events of 1989 and German unification were seismic historical moments. Although 1989 appeared to signify a healing of the war-torn history of the twentieth century, unification posed the question of German cultural identity afresh. Politicians, historians, writers, filmmakers, architects, and the wider public engaged in 'memory contests' over such questions as the legitimacy of alternative biographies, West German hegemony, and the normalization of German history. This dynamic and contested – and still ongoing – transformation of German cultural identity is the topic of this volume of new essays by scholars from the United Kingdom, Germany, the United States, and Ireland.It explores German cultural identity by way of a range of disciplines including history, film studies, architectural history, literary criticism, memory studies, and anthropology, avoiding a homogenized interpretation. Charting the complex and often contradictory processes of cultural identity formation, the volume reveals the varied responses that continue to accompany the project of unification.

Jordan, Jürgen Paul, Linda Shortt, Andrew J. Webber.

Enlightened War: German Theories and Cultures of Warfare from Frederick the Great to Clausewitz by Elisabeth Krimmer and Patricia Anne Simpson
English | 2011-03-01 | ISBN: 1571134956 | PDF | 362 pages | 2 MB

Enlightened War: German Theories and Cultures of Warfare from Frederick the Great to Clausewitz
Enlightened War investigates the multiple and complex interactions between warfare and Enlightenment thought. Although the Enlightenment is traditionally identified with the ideals of progress, eternal peace, reason, and self-determination, Enlightenment discourse unfolded during a period of prolonged European warfare from the Seven Years' War to the Napoleonic conquest of Europe. The essays in this volume explore the palpable influence of war on eighteenth-century thought and argue for an ideological affinity among war, Enlightenment thought, and its legacy. The essays are interdisciplinary, engaging with history, art history, philosophy, military theory, gender studies, and literature and with historical events and cultural contexts from the early Enlightenment through German Classicism and Romanticism. The volume enriches our understanding of warfare in the eighteenth century and shows how theories and practices of war impacted concepts of subjectivity, national identity, gender, and art. It also sheds light on the contemporary discussion of the legitimacy of violence by juxtaposing theories of war, concepts of revolution, and human rights discourses.

Women Entrepreneurs and the Global Environment for Growth: A Research Perspective by Candida G. Brush, Anne de Bruin, Elizabeth J. Gatewood and Colette Henry
English | ISBN 10: 1847209149 | 2010 | PDF | 362 pages | 2,2 MB
Women's entrepreneurship research and the understanding of factors influencing the growth of women-owned business have advanced significantly over the last decade. Yet, challenges remain.

Women Entrepreneurs and the Global Environment for Growth: A Research Perspective
Women Entrepreneurs and the Global Environment for Growth provides wide-ranging insights on the challenges that women entrepreneurs face growing their businesses and how these may be addressed. This volume is rooted in research and considers growth challenges, both contextually and firm specific, provoking current thought and enriching the current literature on gender and entrepreneurship. Part I highlights how contextual factors, and especially social and familial settings of entrepreneurs, have a differential impact on men and women. Part II examines strategies, constraints and enablers of growth and performance.

The authors aptly demonstrate that a well-focused gender lens is necessary to better explain the phenomenon of women's entrepreneurship. Extending previous studies about women's entrepreneurship, this volume is unique in its application of research from the Diana Project, a path-breaking initiative dating from 1999 to study female entrepreneurial success. Contributions from an international cast of authors make this a comprehensive and broadly appealing reference work. Lending a fresh perspective to the field, this book will serve not only as a learning tool and teaching implement but will cultivate further progress in women's entrepreneurship. As such, it is ideally suited for students and scholars of entrepreneurship and women's studies, policy-makers, economic development analysts and gender researchers.

Lacey Baldwin Smith, "Catherine Howard"
2010 | ISBN-10: 1848685211 | 288 pages | EPUB, MOBI | 3 MB

Catherine Howard
A biography of Henry VIII's fifth wife, beheaded for playing Henry at his own game – adultery.

At seven o'clock on the morning of 13 February 1542, stepped out into the cold of the great courtyard of the Tower of London. Slowly she was escorted across the yard and carefully helped up the steps of the wooden scaffold. Only a small group of sightseers had gathered to watch the death of a queen; there was no weeping, no remorse, only chilly curiosity. The axe rose and fell, a life ceased, an episode came to an end. The life and death of Catherine was truly a Tudor tragedy.

A mere teenager, the vivacious and flirty was an unsuitable bride for the elderly and fat Henry VIII. Like most of Henry's wives she had come to his attention at court whilst lady-in-waiting to his fourth wife of only a few months, Anne of Cleves. Henry was soon besotted and came to adore Catherine, his 'very jewel of womanhood'. His head already turned by the 19 year old, Henry never consummated his marriage to Anne, he divorced her and married for the fifth time on 28 July 1540.
Lacey Baldwin Smith, one of the finest historians of the Tudor age, narrates the rise and fall of the most tragic of Henry's queens, the woman who dared to cuckold the king of England.

2009 | ISBN: 034551078X | 416 pages | EPUB, MOBI | 9 MB

Jane Boleyn: The True Story of the Infamous Lady Rochford
In a life of extraordinary drama, Jane Boleyn was catapulted from relative obscurity to the inner circle of King Henry VIII. As powerful men and women around her became victims of Henry's ruthless and absolute power-including her own husband and her sister-in-law, Queen Anne Boleyn-Jane's allegiance to the volatile monarch was sustained and rewarded. But the cost of her loyalty would eventually be her undoing and the ruination of her name. For centuries, little beyond rumor and scandal has been associated with "the infamous Lady Rochford," but now historian Julia Fox sets the record straight. Drawing upon her own deep knowledge and years of original research, she brings us into the inner sanctum of court life, teeming with intrigue and redolent with the threat of disgrace. In the eyes and ears of Jane Boleyn, we witness the myriad players of the stormy Tudor period, and Jane herself emerges as a courageous spirit, a modern woman forced by circumstances to make her own way in a privileged but vicious world.

100 Cases in General Practice (100 Cases Series) by Anne Stephenson and Martin Mueller
English | 2009-05-29 | ISBN: 0340968338 | PDF | 288 pages | 3 MB

100 Cases in General Practice
The aim of the 100 Cases series is to provide a novel learning and revision tool that works by guiding the student through clinical cases, imitating those that students and Foundation Year Doctors are likely to meet in a general practice setting. The cases are written to interest students in clinical problems and to help them develop their skills of clinical reasoning, with each scenario providing details of a patient's medical history and the key findings of a clinical examination, together with initial investigation results data for evaluation.

Key questions then prompt the student to evaluate the patient, and reach a decision regarding their condition and the possible treatment plan; while the answer pages enable the reader to understand the processes a clinician goes through in such situations. The volumes are designed with the student in mind, and include features to aid self-directed learning, clinical thinking and problem-solving.
