Das Rütli - ein Denkmal für eine Nation?

hep verlag


Dieses E-Book enthält komplexe Grafiken und Tabellen, welche nur auf E-Readern gut lesbar sind, auf denen sich Bilder vergrössern lassen.

Inwiefern sind Denkmäler Orte des informellen Geschichts-Erlebens und -Lernens? Konkret: Welches Wissen, welche Vorstellungen bringen Besucherinnen und Besucher mit? Wie nehmen sie das Denkmal wahr? Wie eignen sie sich den Ort an? Was nehmen sie mit? Die vorliegende Untersuchung fragt – am Beispiel des Rütlis – nach dem individuellen und kollektiven Umgang mit einem Denkmal und zugleich nach dessen Gebrauch und Instrumentalisierung. Die im chronologischen Längsschnitt beobachtbare geschichtskulturelle Dynamik prägt auch die Denkmalgestaltung. Deren detaillierte Analyse und Deutung zeigt, wie und mit welcher Wirkungsabsicht der Schauplatz des Gründungsmythos inszeniert wurde und wird, und wie sich Gestaltung und Gebrauch gegenseitig beeinflussen.

Do It As Wilson Says

tredition


Generally, four approaches to US foreign policy can be explained. According to the tradition of Jackson-ism, the United States, as the dominant power, provides global leadership to stabilize the political order and regulate the international economic system, and to prevent the emergence of a dominant power in order to maintain the balance of global power. According to the tradition of Hamiltonianism, the United States avoids thorny external obligations that harm its economy, society, and system of government. St. Wilsonian believes that the United States should support foreign freedom by expanding free markets, democracy, human rights, and national autonomy. The present study examines the Wilsonian approach concerning US foreign policy.

Born on the 28th of January, 1996, in a family that loves art, literature and history. Ellias soon found his taste in literature and especially poetry. He wrote his first limerick when he was 12 years old.

Later on, when he was 14, books like “the peace book“ by Todd Parr, “let there be peace on earth: and let it begin with me“ by Jill Jackson and Sy Miller, and “What does peace feel like?“ by Vladimir Radunsky helped him to get familiar with the essence of peace. Reading poems by Calude Mckay, Wendell Berry and Robert Frost at that age inspired him to start writing poems in a more serious way. Sonnets of Shakespeare were also good sources of inspiration for him. So when he was 16, Ellias wrote a book called “International Poems Collection”. The book got the first provincial place in the most famous competition of inventions in Iran, “Kharazmi”, and the fifth place in the country competition, yet to be the only project of its kind. This book received confirmations from the University of Isfahan and now is being preserved in the ministry of science and research and technology.

The next year, Ellias with the cooperation of two hardworking and creative friends (Hosein Heidari and Hooman Danesh), wrote another poetry book called „A Path to Salvation“. This book also won Kharazmi awards. His Excellency, Dr. Zarif, wrote a thanks letter for Ellias for the book since it includes some nice and extraordinary elements of literature, humanity, peace and international relations.

In 2015, he was the only Asian representative in the second anniversary of Mandela, in Johannesburg, and it was after this event that he published the book “Peace Poems” which was confirmed by the archive center of the aforementioned institute. Before his trip, during a personal meeting with the South Africa minister of art and culture, his projects were praised and he was given the Robben Island Treasure-icon in advance. Returned to Iran, he was invited to give a lecture on the Mandela and their project in the United Nation, Iranian Branch in Tehran with the presence of the Iranian minister of art and culture and other officials.

Later on, he and Paul Amrod collaborated on the longest modern epic in the history of English literature called „Adventures of two captains, volume one”. The book has been published by the most credible publishing house in Iran named Janagl Javidan. They are currently working on the second volume and even write an opera based on the series.

Turning Back the Fenians

Goose Lane Editions | New Brunswick Military Heritage Series


In the early 1860s, Irish immigrants in the United States were eager to help the Fenian brotherhood overthrow the British in Ireland. The American Fenians' mission: to invade British North America and hold it hostage. New Brunswick, with its large Irish population and undefended frontier, was a perfect target. The book tells how, in the spring of 1866, a thousand Fenians massed along the St. Croix River and spread terror among New Brunswickers. When the lieutenant-governor called in British soldiers and a squadron of warships, the Fenians saw that New Brunswick was no longer an easy target, and they turned their efforts against central Canada. The Fenian "attacks" and the demand for home defence fanned the already red-hot political debate, and a year later, in July 1867, New Brunswick joined Confederation. Turning Back the Fenians is volume eight in the New Brunswick Military Heritage Series.

---

"Robert L. Dallison's Turning Back the Fenians: New Brunswick's Last Colonial Campaign makes a significant contribution to this part of our history by shedding light on the motivations, maneuvers, and organization of New Brunswick's militias in their fight against Fenian invasion. . . . provides valuable insight into the events surrounding the Fenian crisis in New Brunswick and elucidates the experiences of the local militiamen charged with defending their homeland. Rather than simply using this work to give a general overview of the military tactics involved in the crisis, Dallison is able to breathe new life into this oft-neglected aspect of pre-Confederation history."

"A recommended read."

The Lost Black Fawn

tredition


Among the ethnic groups, the poorest one in the USA is American Indians. Some of the realities and problems of American Indians include lower opportunities for education, a high rate of unemployment, homelessness, issues of permanent residency, psychological problems, geographic isolation, and drug abuse. For instance, 27% of American Indian households are below the poverty level, while it is about 11.6% among whites in the world. In addition, American Indians tolerate more violent crime compared to other ethnic groups in the United States. They are subject to such crimes like murder, aggression, gang violence, human and drug trafficking, and illegal migration through tribal lands. They also experience the highest rate of imprisonment in the USA. The Indians also face a lack of respectfulness to their culture from other ethnic groups, specifically from the whites.

Such cultural incompetency or lack of cultural respect is partly originated from racial discrimination that is imposed on American Indians. Using discrimination theory, we can understand the relation between racial discrimination and the social challenges faced by American Indians. If Native Americans retrieve their cultural competences, the challenges they face can be mitigated.

We have done our best to present some feasible results in order to solidify our problem and subject matter using mass surveys which have been done previously by Mary G Findling, Logan S. Casey, Stephanie A. Fryberg, Steven Hafner, Robert J. Blendon, John M. Benson, Justin M. Sayde, and Carolyn Miller from the universities of Harvard, Michigan and North Texas.

The Siege of Fort Beauséjour, 1755

Goose Lane Editions | New Brunswick Military Heritage Series


Almost since Champlain's men first settled on St. Croix Island in 1604, the French and the English fought for control of Acadia, a huge area consisting of today's Maritime Provinces and parts of Quebec and Maine. The British assault on Fort Beauséjour in 1755 was the final act in this long struggle. The frontier between the two imperial powers lay along the Chignecto Isthmus, the neck of low, fertile marshlands and parallel ridges joining Nova Scotia to the mainland. Of great strategic importance, this land was the scene of a few pitched battles and constant petty warfare. By 1750, the present-day New Brunswick-Nova Scotia border was a fortified camp amid the fertile lands that generations of Acadians had farmed. The English were building Fort Lawrence on one side of the Missaguash River, near present-day Amherst, Nova Scotia. Meanwhile, the French were constructing Fort Beauséjour in plain view on the opposite side, only three kilometres away, near what is now Sackville, New Brunswick. Relations among the British soldiers, the soldiers from France, the Acadian inhabitants, and the native Mi'kmaq were complex. Acadians and their Mi'kmaq allies traded with British soldiers by day and attacked them at night. The French boasted that Beauséjour was the third-strongest fort in North America, but it was poorly sited and unfinished, and the Acadians forced to work on it demanded payment in British gold. When a combined force of New England volunteers and British regulars wrested the fort from its defenders in June 1755, Beauséjour fell, and so did Acadia. In The Siege of Fort Beauséjour, 1755, Chris Hand outlines the events leading up to this final clash and gives a running account of the siege itself. The 30 site plans, maps, and drawings and paintings, archival and modern, show a realistic picture of the battle that made the Expulsion of the Acadians not only possible but inevitable. The Siege of Fort Beauséjour, 1755 is Volume 3 in the New Brunswick Military Heritage Series.

"Hand paints such a vivid picture that you can visualize the siege unfolding ... [It] makes one realize that this region, Canada, and possibly the continent may have been a different place had this fort been successfully defended."

---

Born in Scarborough and raised near Boston Mills, Ontario, Major Chris Hand joined the Canadian Forces in 1981 and attended the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston, Ontario, graduating in 1986 with a BA in history. In 2002, Major Hand completed studies at Canadian Forces Command and Staff College in Toronto and a MA in history from the University of New Brunswick. The Siege of Fort Beauséjour, 1755 is based on his master's thesis, which he completed while serving at Canadian Forces Base Gagetown. Major Hand has had a number of overseas postings, including postings in Cypress, Bosnia, Ethiopia and Eritrea. He is now the Canadian Exchange Officer with the British Army in Land Warfare Centre, in Warminster, Wiltshire UK. He has two children, Sarah and William.

Nations Divided

tredition


The focus of this book is on the cultural division of modern Western societies. This division is deep and affects many societal areas. The cultural division was not produced by the Internet, it is simply made visible by the Internet. While the mass of non-voters was of little interest in the past, it is now becoming a problem. Political elites have mixed up lack of participation with lack of interest. The negotiating state, which conducts expert discussions in backrooms, is overtaxed with this situation. The progressive-liberal society is only conceivable as a democracy, and democracy can only be protected from the demagogy of the permanent campaigners when the state creates new institutions to this end and rethinks its role. The answer can only be: more democracy, more participation and less exclusion through expert knowledge. Above all, the liberal elites must throw their truth ideology overboard and seriously devote themselves to the social inclusion of the population.

Waking Up From An American Dream

tredition


The foreign policy of the United States is its interactions with foreign nations and how it sets standards of interaction for its organizations, corporations and system citizens of the United States.

The officially stated goals of the foreign policy of the United States of America, including all the Bureaus and Offices in the United States Department of State, as mentioned in the Foreign Policy Agenda of the Department of State, are "to build and sustain a more democratic, secure, and prosperous world for the benefit of the American people and the international community". In addition, the United States House Committee on Foreign Affairs states as some of its jurisdictional goals: "export controls, including nonproliferation of nuclear technology and nuclear hardware; measures to foster commercial interaction with foreign nations and to safeguard American business abroad; international commodity agreements; international education; and protection of American citizens abroad and expatriation". U.S. foreign policy and foreign aid have been the subject of much debate, praise and criticism, both domestically and abroad.

In this book, we have done our best to analyze the strange but rooted method that Donald Trump has applied and imposed on his department of states' blueprints; a mixture of Jacksonism and the politics of containment can be still seen in Trump's notions; how he deals with the countries of opposition can be named as the politics of containment.

If you are interested in reading a book which depicts his strange but yet traditional politics of Donald Trump, this is your book!

You may wake up from your American Dream after finishing reading this book!
