Between Occultism and Nazism: Anthroposophy and the Politics of Race in the Fascist Era

FREEDownload : Between Occultism and Nazism: Anthroposophy and the Politics of Race in the Fascist Era

Between Occultism and Nazism: Anthroposophy and the Politics of Race in the Fascist Era (Aries Texts and Studies in Western Esotericism, Book 17) by Peter Staudenmaier
English | 2014 | ISBN: 9004264078 | ISBN-13: 9789004264076 | 412 pages | PDF | 3,7 MB
The relationship between Nazism and occultism has been an object of fascination and speculation for decades. Peter Staudenmaier's Between Occultism and Nazism provides a detailed historical examination centered on the anthroposophist movement founded by Rudolf Steiner.

Between Occultism and Nazism: Anthroposophy and the Politics of Race in the Fascist Era
Its surprising findings reveal a remarkable level of Nazi support for Waldorf schools, biodynamic farming, and other anthroposophist initiatives, even as Nazi officials attempted to suppress occult tendencies. The book also includes an analysis of anthroposophist involvement in the racial policies of Fascist Italy. Based on extensive archival research, this study offers rich material on controversial questions about the nature of esoteric spirituality and alternative cultural ideals and their political resonance.

Nazism in Syria and Lebanon: The Ambivalence of the German Option, 1933-1945

FREEDownload : Nazism in Syria and Lebanon: The Ambivalence of the German Option, 1933-1945

Götz Nordbruch, "Nazism in Syria and Lebanon: The Ambivalence of the German Option, 1933-1945"
2009 | ISBN-10: 0415457149 | 224 pages | PDF | 1 MB

Nazism in Syria and Lebanon: The Ambivalence of the German Option, 1933-1945
The increasingly vibrant political culture emerging in Lebanon and Syria in the 1930s and early 1940s is key to the understanding of local approaches towards the Nazi German regime. For many contemporary observers in Beirut and Damascus, Nazism not only posed a risk to Europe, but threatened to take root in Arab societies as well.

In the first publication to reconstruct Lebanese and Syrian encounters with Nazism in the context of an evolving local political culture and to base its analysis on a comprehensive review of Arab, French and German sources, Götz Nordbruch examines the reactions to the rise of Nazism in the countries under French mandate, spanning from fascination and endorsement to the creation of antifascist networks.

Against a background of public discourses, local politics and the shifting regional and international settings, this book interprets public assessments of and contact with the Nazi regime as part of an intellectual quest for orientation in the years between the break-up of the Ottoman Empire and national independence.

The Cactus Family by Edward F. Anderson

The Cactus Family by Edward F. Anderson
English | Mar 16, 2001 | ISBN: 0881924989 | 776 Pages | PDF | 147 MB
Only now, at the beginning of the new millennium, is there an up-to-date, comprehensive study of the cactus family. This long-awaited, monumental work covers the Cactaceae in an encyclopedic manner, addressing 125 genera and 1810 species. The most comprehensive single resource on the subject available today, it includes more than 1000 color photographs in addition to other illustrations. The introduction to each genus concentrates on the discovery of the cacti, and the improvements in our understanding of them, many of which result from relatively recent investigation.

The Cactus Family by Edward F. Anderson
As stated in the foreword, "Cacti have a special fascination all their own. Miniature spiny dwarf cacti less than an inch in diameter are hidden in the arid regions of North and South America; the majestic columns of the giant saguaro, Carnegiea gigantea, dominate the deserts of Arizona. Yet all these cacti, given time, offer the surprising paradox of brilliant flowers, their delicacy a striking contrast to the strong spines that keep the viewer at a respectful distance." This remarkable diversity is fully described and illustrated in this authoritative encyclopedia, which is both scientifically accurate and readable. It also includes a chapter by Roger Brown on the cultivation of cacti, making the book even more useful to growers and hobbyists, as well as to taxonomists, ethnobotanists, and conservationists—indeed, anyone interested in succulent plants.

Are We There Yet?: Virtual Travel and Victorian Realism

FREEDownload : Are We There Yet?: Virtual Travel and Victorian Realism

Are We There Yet?: Virtual Travel and Victorian Realism by Alison Byerly
English | Dec 26, 2012 | ISBN: 0472071866 | 264 Pages | PDF | 5 MB
Are We There Yet? Virtual Travel and Victorian Realism connects the Victorian fascination with "virtual travel" with the rise of realism in nineteenth-century fiction and twenty-first-century experiments in virtual reality. Even as the expansion of river and railway networks in the nineteenth century made travel easier than ever before, staying at home and fantasizing about travel turned into a favorite pastime.

Are We There Yet?: Virtual Travel and Victorian Realism
New ways of representing place-360-degree panoramas, foldout river maps, exhaustive railway guides-offered themselves as substitutes for actual travel. Thinking of these representations as a form of "virtual travel" reveals a surprising continuity between the Victorian fascination with imaginative dislocation and twenty-first -century efforts to use digital technology to expand the physical boundaries of the self.

The Spanish Civil War: A Very Short Introduction

The Spanish Civil War: A Very Short Introduction by Helen Graham
English | 2005-06-23 | ISBN: 0192803778 | PDF | 176 pages | 3,5 MB

The Spanish Civil War: A Very Short Introduction
Amid the many catastrophes of the twentieth century, the Spanish Civil War continues to exert a particular fascination among history buffs and the lay-reader alike. This Very Short Introduction integrates the political, social and cultural history of the Spanish Civil War. It sets out the domestic and international context of the war for a general readership. In addition to tracing the course of war, the book locates the war's origins in the cumulative social and cultural anxieties provoked by a process of rapid, uneven and accelerating modernism taking place all over Europe. This shared context is key to the continued sense of the war's importance. The book also examines the myriad of political polemics to which the war has given rise, as well as all of the latest historical debates. It assesses the impact of the war on Spain's transition to democracy and on the country's contemporary political culture.

Violence and the Pornographic Imaginary: The Politics of Sex, Gender, and Aggression in Hardcore Pornography

FREEDownload : Violence and the Pornographic Imaginary: The Politics of Sex, Gender, and Aggression in Hardcore Pornography

Violence and the Pornographic Imaginary: The Politics of Sex, Gender, and Aggression in Hardcore Pornography by Natalie Purcell
English | 2012 | ISBN: 0415523125 | 260 pages | PDF, EPUB | 5 MB

Violence and the Pornographic Imaginary: The Politics of Sex, Gender, and Aggression in Hardcore Pornography
No cultural product reveals our collective fascination with sexual violence more candidly than popular heterosexual pornographies. They showcase scenes of intense sexual aggression and cruelty that are gendered in repetitive, patterned configurations-configurations that are designed to arouse. Purcell uses comparative critical analyses of popular pornographic movies to explore common fantasies of sexual violence and how they have changed over the past forty years. Adopting a thick descriptive approach, she moves beyond the mere observation and recording of instances of sexism and violence, elucidating the changing aesthetics, themes, and conventions of depicted sexual aggression and showing how they have emerged in specific socio-historical contexts. Purcell also draws from a range of industry publications and fan forums to examine the fabric and function of misogyny and violence in viewers' fantasies and everyday lives. By documenting how popular pornographies have changed over time, this study sheds new light the evolving desires and anxieties of the genre's growing U.S. audience.
