The true story of a girl from the wilderness settlements of a burgeoning new America who became one of the most privileged figures of the Gilded Age. Born to a pioneering family in Upstate New York in the late 1800s, Allene Tew was beautiful, impetuous, and frustrated by the confines of her small hometown. At eighteen, she met Tod Hostetter at a local dance, having no idea that the mercurial charmer she would impulsively wed was heir to one of the wealthiest families in America. But when he died twelve years later, Allene packed her bags for New York City. Never once did she look back. From the vantage point of the American upper class, Allene embodied the tumultuous Gilded Age. Over the course of four more marriages, she weathered personal tragedies during World War I and the catastrophic financial reversals of the crash of 1929. From the castles and châteaus of Europe, she witnessed the Russian Revolution and became a princess. And from the hopes of a young girl from Jamestown, New York, Allene Tew would become the epitome of both a pursuer and survivor of the American Dream. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Teri Schnaubelt.

The ominous forces of militarism, nationalism, and secret alliances were finally set loose by the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand. As the Central Powers of Austria-Hungary and Germany move to quickly bring the issue to a speedy climax, the wheels begin to come off. Instead of quick victory, a devastating stalemate ensued. Tens of millions died in the wretched trenches of Europe and by the time the Versailles Treaty was signed in 1919, weary Europeans were startled to see the rise of a Russian government so radical, it instantly became a pariah. Disillusionment with the Versailles Treaty became widespread among both victor and vanquished. As France pressed the Germans for reparations, the Germans dug in their heels. With each new perceived humiliation, the German population began to nurse a hatred that was easily fanned by demagogues. When the economic recovery of the 20s was derailed by the worldwide Great Depression, the door was flung open for the entry into history of the demonic force of Adolf Hitler and his National Socialist Party. In the Soviet Union, the communists under Stalin began implementing five-year plans of unprecedented scope. Millions died futiley followed by a savage Stalinist purge amid spectacular show trials. Yet Russia doggedly forged ahead. In the west, the democracies seemed powerless to stop Hitler until it was too late and war came to them unprepared. The French fell to Nazi armies, and Britain, with Churchill leading, stood alone. As the suspense heightens, Hitler suddenly launches an attack on the Soviet Union. In a titanic paroxysm of violence and death, the second world war comes to an end under a pall of destruction and despair never before known. Out of this desolation has emerged the New Europe we know today. From our present vantage point, the recovery has been no less than miraculous. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlton Griffin.

Atheism
42,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One of the twentieth century’s most brilliant and unconventional thinkers, Alexandre Kojève was a Russian émigré to France whose lectures on Hegel in the 1930s galvanized a generation of French intellectuals. Although Kojève wrote a great deal, he published very little in his lifetime, and so the ongoing rediscovery of his work continues to present new challenges to philosophy and political theory. Written in 1931 but left unfinished, Atheism is an erudite and open-ended exploration of profound questions of estrangement, death, suicide, and the infinite that demonstrates the range and the provocative power of Kojève’s thought. Ranging across Heidegger, Buddhism, Christianity, German idealism, Russian literature, and mathematics, Kojève advances a novel argument about freedom and authority. He investigates the possibility that there is not any vantage point or source of authority—including philosophy, science, or God—that is outside or beyond politics and the world as we experience it. The question becomes whether atheism—or theism—is even a meaningful position since both affirmation and denial of God’s existence imply a knowledge that seems clearly outside our capacities. Masterfully translated by Jeff Love, this book offers a striking new perspective on Kojève’s work and its implications for theism, atheism, politics, and freedom.

1905 in St. Petersburg

This account of the St. Petersburg labor movement during the First Russian Revolution focuses on the sources and meaning of the extraordinary explosion of labor militancy in 1905 - a year that saw more striking workers than ever before in Russian history, almost a quarter of them in the capital. In contrast to earlier works, which have explained this militancy by stressing the political leadership of the Social Democratic party, the author offers a more complex and balanced picture that takes account of not only the moderate sectors of the opposition, but the initiative of the workers themselves. Situating the labor movement within the social and political ferment of early-twentieth-century Russia, he analyses the reshuffling of relations between workers and the intelligentsia that stood at the gateway of the entire revolutionary period. The result is an account of the revolution that takes a fresh look at the interaction of workers, the educated opposition, and the revolutionary parties, yielding a new appreciation of the role of each. The analytical narrative on 1905 is preceded by several chapters establishing the precedents for the mass strikes that erupted in that year and documenting the long- and short-term reasons for the workers' rapid turn to political protest. The study treats both the indispensable contribution of the revolutionary parties to the political education of the Petersburg labor force and their failure to reach the vast majority of workers. The great events of 1905 itself are framed and elucidated from a number of vantage points in detailed studies of strike actions and worker leaders, factory and union organizing initiatives, liberal overtures to the labor movement, and the incipient and actual breakdown of public order in the capital. The narrative culminates in the October General Strike, when workers organized the first Soviet of Workers' Deputies, a unique fusion of their own autonomous militancy with the ideas and leadership of their socialist and liberal allies.

The Biafran Chief Pilot Breaks His Silence To Reveal All A Nigerian Air Force aircraft executing military flight manoeuvres and violent aerobatics crashes over Ibadan, Nigeria and sets off unprecedented accusations, recriminations and suspicions of acts of sabotage, treachery and betrayal perpetrated by the German Air Force group in Nigeria. A clutch of dissidents from across the Niger boards a Benin - Lagos flight and diverts it to land at Enugu airport in a quick well coordinated broad day light skyjack. It was the first violent airplane snatch in Nigeria. A German Corporal, ignoring military protocol because of irreconcilable prejudice fails to salute a Nigerian Lieutenant thereby provoking intra-service hierarchical chaos in the German-run NAF. These are but a few of the multitude of expose and revelations the author copiously chronicles in his THE LAST FLIGHT. Writing from the vantage position of being a part of the nucleus and foundation member of the Nigerian Air Force and later an active air combatant in the Nigeria-Biafra air-war, Captain August Okpe has given a robust and exciting account as well as some incredible perspectives of the political and military intrigues on both sides of the divide. He left nothing to the imagination in giving the account of the genesis and inception of the NAF while highlighting subsequent activities - the routine, the awesome or the spectacular, as the case may be - of the corporate body in its formative years right up till the beginning of hostilities. Then, he commences to treat the air-war most impressively. Revealing facts and figures the world did not know of before have been painstakingly chronicled while pictures never seen before are also colourfully depicted. Highlights: - How were Nigerian military pilots trained in the USA, Canada, Germany, India and Ethiopia? - Why would a German Corporal not salute a Nigerian Officer - a Lieutenant? - Flight Safety, Corpses and Mink Coats! - A full account of the first air disaster of the NAF in 1965! - What role did NAF play in the coups of Jan 15 and July 1966? - Did the Easterners take steps to stock up on arms in anticipation of the Nigerian attack? What is the connection between a professor cum Poet Laureate - Christopher Okigbo - and airplanes and weapons in the Nigerian Crisis? - A full account of the first Skyjack in Nigeria. The dramatis personae and their reasons! And Photographs! - The first Biafran Air Crash - victims, time and place! - Full fledged account on how the Biafrans used helicopters to bomb the Nigerian front lines! - NAF pilots and their exploits in the Nigeria-Biafra air war - The exploits of the notorious B25 and B26 - their effect on Nigerian forces! And Photographs! - A full and comprehensive account of Flight 101, the Biafran bomber that exploded over the Lagos metropolis - crew composition, armament, briefing, etc. - Operation 'Jefta' - the deliberate destruction of our (Biafran) airplanes to preclude their falling into Nigerian hands! - A scorched Earth Programme which virtually called for wholesale suicide! - Did the Portuguese Air Force Pilots fly for Biafra? - Did Russian and Egyptian pilots fly with NAF during the war? - Power play within the Biafran Air Force! - The Last Flights! - The last Biafran pilots to be shot down only two days before Biafra capitulated!
