Mach Dich Auf Und Werde Licht Celies Nu Topi Gaiss . Ernst Gluck kann in vielerlei Hinsicht als eine der eindrucksvollsten Personlichkeiten des ausgehenden 17. Jahrhunderts im Baltischen Raum gelten. Geboren 1654 in Wettin bei Halle (Saale) hat er als Pfarrer in Livland die Bibel erstmals ins Lettische ubersetzt. Er ist somit fur die Letten das, was Luther fur die Deutschen war. In Russland, wohin er als Kriegsgefangener wahrend des Nordischen Krieges geraten war, erwarb er sich grosse Verdienste als Grunder des ersten russischen Gymnasiums, und nicht zuletzt war er Ziehvater von Martha Skowronska, die spater als Zarin Katharina I. den russischen Thron bestieg. In diesem Tagungsband zeichnen Historiker, Theologen, Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaftler aus der Bundesrepublik, dem Baltikum und Russland in ihren Beitragen wichtige Lebensstationen Ernst Glucks nach, und versuchen so ein umfassendes Bild von dessen Leben und Werk zu vermitteln.

German Through English Eyes. McLelland's pioneering study charts the history of foreign language learning and teaching in the UK over five centuries (1500-2000), taking German as her case study. From the first grammar of German for English speakers, published in 1680, McLelland traces the growth in interest in German for travel and trade, and its rapid increase in prestige in the eighteenth century as a language of literary merit, before German became established in schools and universities from the second quarter of the nineteenth century onwards. Taking hundreds of textbooks as her primary sources, as well as the pronouncements of teachers, examiners and policy-makers, McLelland considers the changing reasons for teaching and learning German, and the consequent changes in teaching methods (including the influence of the Reform Movement around 1900, innovations such as language laboratories, and, more recently, the communicative approach). She analyses changes in how the German language was presented, including advances in how the sound system and word order were described. Finally, and crucially, she considers how German culture and history have been represented to English-speaking learners, particularly over the past hundred years, a century of troubled Anglo-German cultural relations. A chronological bibliography of several hundred textbooks for the period 1600-2000 will serve as a stimulus for further research.

Absolute Beginners. ‘I swore by Elvis and all the saints that this last teenage year of mine was going to be a real rave. Yes, man, come whatever, this last year of the teenage dream I was out for kicks and fantasy’ London, 1958. A new phenomenon is causing a stir: the teenager. In the smoky jazz clubs of Soho and the coffee bars of Notting Hill the young and the restless - the absolute beginners - are revolutionising youth culture and forging a new carefree lifestyle of sex, drugs and rock‘n’roll. Moving in the midst of this world of mods and rockers, Teddy gangs and trads., and snapping every scene with his trusty Rolleiflex, is MacInnes’ young photographer, whose unique wit and honest views remain the definitive account of London life in the 1950s and what it means to be a teenager. In this twentieth century cult classic, MacInnes captures the spirit of a generation and creates the style bible for anyone interested in Mod culture, and the changing face of London in the era of the first race riots and the lead up to the swinging Sixties...

Renaissance Figures Of Speech. The Renaissance saw a renewed and energetic engagement with classical rhetoric; recent years have seen a similar revival of interest in Renaissance rhetoric. As Renaissance critics recognised, figurative language is the key area of intersection between rhetoric and literature. This book is the first modern account of Renaissance rhetoric to focus solely on the figures of speech. It reflects a belief that the figures exemplify the larger concerns of rhetoric, and connect, directly or by analogy, to broader cultural and philosophical concerns within early modern society. Thirteen distinguished contributors have selected a rhetorical figure with a special currency in Renaissance writing, and have used it as a key to one of the period's characteristic modes of perception, forms of argument, states of feeling, or styles of reading.

Walton Ford. Working in the tradition of such legendary animal painters as John James Audubon, Walton Ford brings new life and vigor to the great legacy of artist/natural historians. The sheer visual beauty and superb workmanship makes a startling contrast with their sometimes violent imagery and trenchant political and social commentary on history, colonialism, and the precarious relationship between man and animal. Walton Ford: Tigers of Wrath, Horses of Instruction is the first survey of his paintings. This volume includes an essay by screenwriter Steven Katz, who describes the artist's formative years and developing interest in natural history. In his interview with Dodie Kazanjian, the artist discusses the complex interweaving of ideas, personal memories, and historical events that forms the imaginative and intellectual armature of his paintings.

A History Of The Baltic States. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have been the battleground for neighbouring powers and the site of intense rivalry, but also interaction, between East and West. A History of the Baltic States masterfully traces the development of these three Baltic countries, from the northern crusades against Europe's last pagans, and Lithuania's rise to become one of medieval Europe's largest states, to their incorporation into the Russian Empire and the creation of their modern national identities. Drawing upon the most recent scholarship, Andres Kasekamp pays particular attention to the tumultuous twentieth century, during which the Baltic States achieved independence, but also endured occupation by both the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. Finally, he explores how the Baltic States recovered their statehood and transformed themselves into members of the European Union. Clearly and accessibly written, this is one of the first English-language books to provide a comparative survey of Baltic history.
