Andreas Hofer by Else Faber Book Summary:

"Andreas Hofer" er romanen baseret på den sande historie om folkehelten fra Tyrols frihedskamp i 1809. Napoleon har besejret det meste af Europa, men rundt omkring ulmer utilfredsheden og længslen efter uafhængighed. Det fører til opgør og kampe, og Andreas Hofer er samlingspunktet for de frihedselskende tyrolere, der flere gange slår Napoleons soldater tilbage. Men det er ikke alle de såkaldte frihedselskende tyrolere, der er på Hofers side. Else Faber (1900-1988), dansk forfatter og oversætter. Særligt kendt for sine krimier, men udgav også historiske romaner. Faber skrev også hørespil, der ofte var succesfulde. Heriblandt radiokrimiserien "Siva-Skriget" (1956) som hun skrev under pseudonymet Cecil Burton.

Andreas Hofer und der Tiroler Freiheitskampf von 1809 by Michael Forcher Book Summary:

Andreas Hofer und seine Zeit - lebendig und facettenreich geschildert von Michael Forcher. Andreas Hofer: Volksheld oder religiöser Fanatiker? Für Gott, Kaiser und Vaterland: Im Jahr 1809 kämpft Andreas Hofer für die Freiheit Tirols - über 200 Jahre später wird er dafür immer noch verehrt. Für viele ist der Wirt vom "Sandhof" aus St. Leonhard in Passeier ein Held, der Anführer eines tapferen Kampfes am Bergisel. Doch er muss auch Kritik einstecken: War er nichts als ein erzkonservativer, dem Trunke nicht abgeneigter religiöser Fanatiker? Wird er zu Recht als Freiheitsheld und Idol gefeiert? Oder sollte man ihn lieber als Fundamentalisten bezeichnen? Die Tiroler und das Jahr 1809: Heldenjahr oder reaktionärer Aufstand? Kaum ein Ereignis ist in Tirol mehr mit Legenden und Mythen umrankt als der Freiheitskampf 1809 gegen die Bayern und Franzosen. War dieses Jahr ein "Heldenjahr", ein "Schicksalsjahr"? Oder war "Anno Neun" der Aufstand hinterwäldlerischer Reaktionäre gegen moderne Entwicklungen? War es ein unsinniges, weil von vornherein aussichtsloses Kräftemessen von Schießstandkönigen, Wirten, Raufbolden und Wilderern gegen die gedrillten Heere Napoleons und seiner Vasallen? Oder sind die Leistungen der Tiroler, die damals ganz Europa erstaunt haben, auch heute noch zu bewundern? Neueste Erkenntnisse zur Biographie des Tiroler Freiheitshelden Andreas Hofer Es herrscht Aufklärungsbedarf: Michael Forcher, ausgewiesener Kenner der Tiroler Geschichte, durchleuchtet in seinem Buch Vorgeschichte, Hintergründe und Nachwirkungen des Freiheitskampfs. Spielerisch entlarvt er Klischees und lässt Raum für die persönliche Meinungsbildung. Anlässlich des 250. Geburtstags von Andreas Hofer erweitert Michael Forcher seinen Bestseller "Anno Neun" in einer Neuauflage um biografische Aspekte zum bis heute bewunderten und streitbaren Tiroler Freiheitskämpfer. Ein unverzichtbares Buch zu Andreas Hofer und dem Tiroler Freiheitskampf: umfassend, tiefschürfend und spannend wie ein Roman!

L'eroe tirolese Andreas Hofer nella letteratura inglese del primo '800 - Claudia Messelodi by Claudia Messelodi Book Summary:

In questo studio l’autrice illustra, attraverso l’analisi di alcune opere letterarie di scrittori inglesi della prima metà del XIX secolo, come la figura dell’eroe e combattente tirolese Andreas Hofer, durante l’insurrezione del popolo tirolese contro il nemico franco-bavarese dell’anno 1809 (Anno Neun), sia stata vista e recepita dal mondo inglese del tempo. Le opere letterarie prese in considerazione appartengono ai tre generi letterari della prosa, poesia e teatro. Dopo una breve nota biografica e storica introduttiva relativa ad Andreas Hofer e alle vicende storiche dell’Anno Neun, tratterà dei rapporti tra Inghilterra e Tirolo prendendo in considerazione il panorama socio-culturale del periodo ed affronterò infine l’analisi della biografia su Andreas Hofer “Memorie della vita Andreas Hofer” scritta dallo storico Charles Henry Hall, del romanzo “Hofer, il Tirolese” scritto da Marie Elizabeth Budden, dei “Sonetti tirolesi” composti dal celebre poeta William Wordsworth, del poema “Hofer, e altre poesie” di Charles Edwards, dell’opera teatrale “Hofer, Guglielmo Tell del Tirolo” scritta da Edward Fitzball.

More than Housing by Margrit Hugentobler,Andreas Hofer,Pia Simmendinger Book Summary:

The site development “mehr als wohnen” (“more than living”) in Zurich North is a flagship project for sustainable housing cooperatives. Thirteen new buildings offer living and working space for more than 1,100 people and pave the way for future urban cohabitation. In addition to new typologies for family, retirement, and cluster apartments, this urban communal housing development also includes comprehensive services such as a guesthouse, a restaurant, and a mobility station. The planners are also experimenting with new materials and innovative energy concepts. An initiative of 30 Zurich housing cooperatives has been developing the project “mehr als wohnen” as a platform for innovation since 2007. At the core of the planning process is the dialogue between the different parties. The project is also facing the pressing task of building and living, according to energy and resource-efficient means that go beyond familiar energy labels. The publication combines elements of a book on architecture with sociological analyses. The built projects are documented using a collection of plans that range from master plans to apartment layouts and selected details. In addition, the participating architects, planners, cooperative members, and experts discuss their experiences and provide insight into the background of the cooperatives and of planning processes. They demonstrate how this exemplary site development can be an integral part of the current urban development discourse and reality. They also discuss how urban planning is able to produce sustainable city development.

A History of Collective Living by Susanne Schmid Book Summary:

The book tells the story of communal living from about 1850 until today. Three motives of sharing - the economic, political and social intention - divide the residential objects, which are investigated in a historical analysis and allocated to nine development phases. The author investigates and compares different forms of housing and the way they developed from their origins until today; she illustrates how everyday shared living and the degrees of privacy in housing are practiced in Europe. Owing to its comprehensive documentation, the analysis of typologies, layout plans, and user and expert interviews, the book can also be considered to be a lexicon or handbook on communal living. A detailed overview that is unique in this form.

Staging the Past by Maria Bucur,Nancy Meriwether Wingfield,Wingfield, Nancy Meriwether Wingfield,Purdue University Press Book Summary:

This volume contains three sections of essays which examine the role of commemoration and public celebrations in the creation of a national identity in Habsburg lands. It also seeks to engage historians of culture and of nationalism in other geographic fields as well as colleagues who work on Habsburg Central Europe, but write about nationalism from different vantage points. There is hope that this work will help generate a dialogue, especially with colleagues who live in the regions that were analyzed. Many of the authors consider the commemorations discussed in this volume from very different points of view, as they themselves are strongly rooted in a historical context that remains much closer to the nationalism we critique.

The CASSIA Spy Ring in World War II Austria by C. Turner Book Summary:

 After Hitler annexed Austria in 1938, the Gestapo began silencing critics. Many were shipped to concentration camps; those deemed most dangerous to the Reich were executed. Yet a few slipped through the Gestapo’s net and organized resistance cells. One group, codenamed CASSIA, became America’s most effective spy ring in Austria during World War II. This first full-length account of CASSIA describes its contributions to the Allied war effort—including reports on the V-2 missile, Nazi death camps and advanced combat aircraft and tanks—before a catastrophic intelligence failure sent key members to the guillotine, firing squad or gas chamber.

Linnet by Grant Allen Book Summary:

Linnet, by Grant Allen (1900). This is a romance of the Tyrol and its scenery and people are described in a manner both effective and pleasing. Two young English tourists come to a little mountain village where they find the Tyrolese in all their native simplicity; the young men, with the pride and aspirations of the hunter, who dance wildly and make love fiercely, and the maidens of easy virtue who tend their cows in the summer and serve a master in the village through the long winter. One of these is Linnet, the heroine, an innocent, modest girl among her bold associates, who possesses a marvelous voice. Both tourists are charmed with the lovely singer, but while one is selfish and conceited and pays her meaningless compliments, the other, who is quiet and undemonstrative really wins her love. His friend, however, being more wise in worldly affairs than himself, persuades him of the folly of his course, and takes him away from the place. Linnet has other lovers among whom is the taciturn inn-keeper, who is a musician and travels with minstrel troupes of his own training, and who means to marry her as a matter of business. He takes Linnet with him on his next tour and while she is rapidly becoming famous she again meets her “Englander” and the love which began in the Tyrolese mountain again assumes its sway. The love story is told with much charm and grace, and when the scene changes to London the contrast in character and national traits between that city and the land of the Tyrol is strikingly shown.

Industrial Heritage Sites in Transformation by Harald A. Mieg,Heike Oevermann Book Summary:

The management of industrial heritage sites requires rethinking in the context of urban change, and the issue of how to balance protection, preservation/conservation, and development becomes all the more crucial as industrial heritage sites grow in number. This brings into play new challenges—not only through the known conflicts between monument preservation and contemporary architecture, but also with the increasing demand for economic urban development by reusing the built heritage of former industrial sites. This book explores the conservation and change of industrial heritage sites in transformation, presenting and examining ten European and Asian case studies. The interdisciplinary approach of the book connects a diversity of rationales and discourses, including monument protection, World Heritage conventions, urban regeneration, urban planning and design, architecture, and politics. This is the first book to deepen the understanding of industrial heritage site management as a networked, multi-dimensional task involving diverse social agents and societal discourses.

Friends by Robin Dunbar Book Summary:

Friends matter to us, and they matter more than we think. The single most surprising fact to emerge out of the medical literature over the last decade or so has been that the number and quality of the friendships we have has a bigger influence on our happiness, health and even mortality risk than anything else except giving up smoking. Robin Dunbar is the world-renowned psychologist and author who famously discovered Dunbar's number: how our capacity for friendship is limited to around 150 people. In Friends, he looks at friendship in the round, at the way different types of friendship and family relationships intersect, or at the complex of psychological and behavioural mechanisms that underpin friendships and make them possible - and just how complicated the business of making and keeping friends actually is. Mixing insights from scientific research with first person experiences and culture, Friends explores and integrates knowledge from disciplines ranging from psychology and anthropology to neuroscience and genetics in a single magical weave that allows us to peer into the incredible complexity of the social world in which we are all so deeply embedded. Working at the coalface of the subject at both research and personal levels, Robin Dunbar has written the definitive book on how and why we are friends.

The single most surprising fact to emerge out of the medical literature over the last decade or so has been that the number and quality of the friendships we have has a bigger influence on our happiness, health and even mortality risk than anything else except giving up smoking. Robin Dunbar is the world-renowned psychologist and author who famously discovered Dunbar's number: how our capacity for friendship is limited to around 150 people. In Friends, he looks at friendship in the round, at the way different types of friendship and family relationships intersect, or at the complex of psychological and behavioural mechanisms that underpin friendships and make them possible - and just how complicated the business of making and keeping friends actually is. Mixing insights from scientific research with first person experiences and culture, Friends explores and integrates knowledge from disciplines ranging from psychology and anthropology to neuroscience and genetics in a single magical weave that allows us to peer into the incredible complexity of the social world in which we are all so deeply embedded. Working at the coalface of the subject at both research and personal levels, Robin Dunbar has written the definitive book on how and why we are friends.

Paul Tschetter by Rod Janzen Book Summary:

Paul Tschetter Was a Leading Figure In Late Nineteenth-Century Hutterite history, the "Hutterite Joshua," who convinced 1,250 Hutterites to leave Russia in the 1870s and resettle in Dakota Territory. Tschetter's life elucidates the way that an immigrant community fought for survival in a North American environment that stressed assimilation to radically different political, economic, cultural, and religious values. Janzen provides an in-depth narrative and analysis of Tschetter's influence based on diaries, sermons, hymns, interviews, and other primary materials. "I welcome this long-overdue book on Paul Tschetter. Rod Janzen is to be commended for continuing to preserve the Prairieleut heritage. Paul Tschetter provided much needed leadership in a very transitional period of Hutterian history."---Tony Waldner, Forest River Hutterite Colony "Much has been written on the communal Hutterites, but Rod Janzen is one of the very few scholars who have tracked the history of the more numerous Prairieleut, or noncommunal Hutterites. Spotlighting the pivotal Prairieleut leader Paul Tschetter is a giant step forward in preserving the history of the `other' Hutterites."---Timothy Miller, University of Kansas "Janzen writes the way history ought to be written ... The author builds upon, and then goes far beyond all previous studies---in content, and especially in his solid interpretation and historical analysis where socioreligious perspectives are not shortchanged."---Leonard Gross, author of the Golden Years of the Hutterites "The Tschetter family is grateful for Dr. Janzen's thoughtful biography."---Wesley G. Tschetter, South Dakota State University "Paul Tschetter's biography---so well-written by the careful and detailed research of Rod Janzen---preserves as a lasting tribute the story of a wonderful and many-sided man and the remarkable community of the Prairieleut people in the context of a forever vanished society and era."---Max Stanton, Brigham Young University, Hawaii

Becoming Austrians by Lisa Silverman Book Summary:

The collapse of Austria-Hungary in 1918 left all Austrians in a state of political, social, and economic turmoil, but Jews in particular found their lives shaken to the core. Although Jews' former comfort zone suddenly disappeared, the dissolution of the Dual Monarchy also created plenty of room for innovation and change in the realm of culture. Jews eagerly took up the challenge to fill this void, and they became heavily invested in culture as a way to shape their new, but also vexed, self-understandings. By isolating the years between the World Wars and examining formative events in both Vienna and the provinces, Becoming Austrians: Jews and Culture between the World Wars demonstrates that an intensified marking of people, places, and events as "Jewish" accompanied the crises occurring in the wake of Austria-Hungary's collapse, with profound effects on Austria's cultural legacy. In some cases, the consequences of this marking resulted in grave injustices. Philipp Halsmann, for example, was wrongfully imprisoned for the murder of his father years before he became a world-famous photographer. And the men who shot and killed writer Hugo Bettauer and philosopher Moritz Schlick received inadequate punishment for their murderous deeds. But engagements with the terms of Jewish difference also characterized the creation of culture, as shown in Hugo Bettauer's satirical novel The City without Jews and its film adaptation, other texts by Veza Canetti, David Vogel, A.M. Fuchs, Vicki Baum, and Mela Hartwig, and performances at the Salzburg Festival and the Yiddish theater in Vienna. By examining the lives, works, and deeds of a broad range of Austrians, Lisa Silverman reveals how the social codings of politics, gender, and nation received a powerful boost when articulated along the lines of Jewish difference.
