Der einem deutschen lutherischen Umfeld entstammende Kaufmannssohn Martin Gruneweg aus Danzig unternahm als Schreiber mit armenischen Kaufherren in Lemberg in der zweiten Halfte des 16. Jahrhunderts umfangreiche Handelsreisen, wobei er lebendige Aufzeichnungen uber die Regionen Mittel-, Ost-, Sudost- und Sudeuropas hinterliess. 1588 trat er in den Dominikanerorden ein und begab sich damit in ein polnisches katholisches Umfeld. Gruneweg hielt sich fur langere Zeit in den wichtigsten wirtschaftlichen und kulturellen Zentren seiner Zeit auf. So wusste er nicht nur vom Hof in Warschau, dem Handelsmechanismus in Danzig oder dem Zusammenleben verschiedener Ethnien in Lemberg Interessantes zu berichten. Seine Aufzeichnungen sind eine unerschopfl iche Fundgrube zur Religions- und Kirchengeschichte. Diese stehen beispielhaft fur die Geisteswelt eines nicht studierten Klosterbruders aus dem Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts. Mit der vom DHI Warschau inzwischen vorgelegten Edition der Aufzeichnungen Grunewegs* sind weitreichende Forschungsmoglichkeiten eroffnet worden. Der Band vereinigt die Beitrage einer zum Erscheinen der Edition 2008 organisierten internationalen Konferenz, welche die Fulle der Moglichkeiten einer Auswertung aufzeigen.

Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the American Gulf Coast on August 29, 2005. Biloxi, Mississippi, a small town on the coast, was one of the towns devastated directly by the storm. Drawing on ethnographic, media, and historic document research and analysis, Jennifer Trivedi explores the pre-disaster cultural, historical, social, political, and economic distinctions that shaped the recovery ofBiloxi and Biloxians. Trivedi examines how networks of people, groups, and institutions worked to prepare for and recover from the hurricane, reinforcing the distinctions that existed before the storm.

When firefighter Jeremy Davis responds to an emergency call at the home of the town’s resident Santa Claus only weeks before Christmas, it’s anything but routine when he comes face to face with the man’s granddaughter. He hasn’t laid eyes on Bella since their first awkward kiss thirteen years ago and now she's all grown up—and gorgeous. Bella Burton is in town to help her aging grandfather—and to take a break from her flailing singing career. The last thing she expected was to run into the scrawny boy she used to spend her summers with. Especially since the sexy, strong man he’d turned into was far from the kid she remembers. It may have been over a decade ago, but the connection between them that they were too young to recognize when they were kids, is still very much alive and it’s stronger than ever. But Bella’s only in town for a short time. Can the magic of Christmas, and the spirit of the season spark a love that’s strong enough to last long past the holidays?

Author: Ben Rhodes
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR To be born American in the late twentieth century was to take the fact of a particular kind of American exceptionalism as granted – a state of nature arrived at after all else had failed. In the span of just thirty years, this assumption would come crashing down. After the fall, we must determine what it means to be American again. In 2017, as Ben Rhodes was helping Barack Obama begin his next chapter, the legacy they worked to build for eight years was being taken apart. To understand what was happening in America, Rhodes decided to look outwards. Over the next three years, he travelled to dozens of countries, meeting with politicians, activists, and dissidents confronting the same nationalism and authoritarianism that was tearing America apart. Along the way, a Russian opposition leader he spends time with is poisoned, the Hong Kong protesters he comes to know see their movement snuffed out, and America itself reaches the precipice of losing democracy before giving itself a second chance. After the Fall is a hugely ambitious and essential work of discovery. Throughout, Rhodes comes to realize how much America's fingerprints are on a world it helped to shape: through the excesses of the post-Cold War embrace of unbridled capitalism, post-9/11 nationalism and militarism, mania for technology and social media, and the racism that shaped the backlash to the Obama presidency. At the same time, he learns from a diverse set of characters – from Obama to rebels to a rising generation of leaders – how looking squarely at where America has gone wrong only makes it more essential to fight for what America is supposed to be – for itself, and for the entire world.

"Since the 1960s, the occult in film and television has responded to and reflected society's crises surrounding gender and sexuality. In Desire after Dark, Andrew J. Owens explores media where figures such as vampires and witches make use of their supernatural knowledge in order to queer what otherwise appears to be a normative world. Beginning with the global sexual revolutions of the '60s and moving decade by decade through "Euro-sleaze" cinema and theatrical hardcore pornography, the HIV/AIDS crisis, the popularity of New Age religions and witchcraft, and finally the increasingly explicit sexualization of American cable television, Owens contends that occult media has risen to prominence during the past 60 years as a way of exposing and working through cultural crises about the queer. Through the use of historiography and textual analyses of media from Bewitched to The Hunger, Owens reveals that the various players in occult media have always been well aware that non-normative sexuality constitutes the heart of horror's enduring appeal. By investigating vampirism, witchcraft, and other manifestations of the supernatural in media, Desire after Dark confirms how the queer has been integral to the evolution of the horror genre and its persistent popularity as both a subcultural and mainstream media form"--
