Deutschland, einig Vaterland? Das kommunikative Gedächtnis der Deutschen ist gestört: Sie wollen sich nicht mehr über die DDR unterhalten. Michael Meyen zeigt auf, dass die Leitmedien seit 1990 fast ausschließlich von der Diktatur erzählen und uns so einen Anker für die kollektive Identität nehmen. Während die Westdeutschen zu wissen glauben, wie es »drüben« gewesen ist, vermeidet es der Ostdeutsche überwiegend, als DDR-Bürger enttarnt zu werden. Die Folgen: Die Muster »Arrangement« und »Fortschritt« verschwinden aus dem kollektiven Gedächtnis - und die Jugend hat ein Zerrbild vom Leben in der DDR.

Hailed by critics and readers alike as Gnter Grass's best book since The Tin Drum, Crabwalk is an engrossing account of the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff and a critical meditation on Germany's struggle with its wartime memories. The Gustloff, a German cruise ship turned refugee carrier, was attacked by a Soviet submarine in January 1945. Some nine thousand people went down in the Baltic Sea, making it the deadliest maritime disaster of all time. Born to an unwed mother on a lifeboat the night of the attack, Paul Pokriefke is a middle-aged journalist trying to piece together the tragic events. For his teenage son, who dabbles in the dark, far-right corners of the Internet, the Gustloff embodies the denial of Germany's suffering. Crabwalk is at once a captivating tale of a tragedy at sea and a fearless examination of the ways different generations of Germans now view their past.

Austerlitz, the internationally acclaimed masterpiece by “one of the most gripping writers imaginable” (The New York Review of Books), is the story of a man’s search for the answer to his life’s central riddle. A small child when he comes to England on a Kindertransport in the summer of 1939, one Jacques Aus-terlitz is told nothing of his real family by the Welsh Methodist minister and his wife who raise him. When he is a much older man, fleeting memories return to him, and obeying an instinct he only dimly understands, he follows their trail back to the world he left behind a half century before. There, faced with the void at the heart of twentieth-century Europe, he struggles to rescue his heritage from oblivion.

In Europe, the far right is gaining momentum on the streets and in parliaments. By taking a close look at contemporary practices and strategies of far-right actors, the present volume explores this right-ward shift of European publics and politics. It assembles analyses of changing mobilization patterns and their effects on the local, national and transnational level. International experts, among them Tamir Bar-On, Liz Fekete, Matthew Kott, and Graham Macklin, scrutinize new forms of coalition building, mainstreaming and transnationalization tendencies as aspects of diversified far-right politics in Europe.

Human reasoning is marked by an ability to remember one's personal past and to imagine one's future. Together these capacities rely on the notion of a temporally extended self or the self in time. Recent evidence suggests that it is during the preschool period that children first construct this form of self. By about four years of age, children can remember events from their pasts and reconstruct a personal narrative integrating these events. They know that past events in which they participated affect present circumstances. They can also imagine the future and make decisions designed to bring about desirable future events even in the face of competing immediate gratification. This book brings together the leading researchers on these issues and for the first time in literature, illustrates how a unified approach based on the idea of a temporally extended self can integrate these topics.

Profoundly challenging the traditional view of memory as the product and property of individual minds, Collective Remembering investigates remembering and forgetting as socially constituted activities. The authors argue that individuals account for and understand their memories through the concepts, stories, and stereotypes that have been acquired within the parameters of their sociocultural heritage. Collective Remembering explores the ways communities, families, other groups, cultures, and organizations are created, sustained, and transformed. Also examined are the ways in which what is to be remembered--or forgotten--can become rhetorically and ideologically interpreted to account for the past, present, and future of social life. The social character of memory is a focus of growing interest across a range of disciplines including psychology, sociology, communication, history, and anthropology. Collective Remembering makes an important contribution to this emerging debate. "I found each of the chapters in Collective Remembering to offer new phenomena to study and new ways of examining problems that are just now being articulated. This text should be read by anyone interested in the study of memory, since it will challenge any preconceived notions about the nature and uses of memory and remembering." --Semiotica "The authors have brilliantly described a wide range of phenomena that fall under the heading of collective remembering, but perhaps even more importantly, they have challenged many of the theoretical constructs and boundaries of contemporary social science. It is a major accomplishment and will be looked upon for years as being well ahead of its time." --James V. Wertsch, Clark University "Taken together these essays are the freshest and most promising approach I have seen to begin to map the features we are likely to find in this terrain." --Davis Thelan, Editor, The Journal of American History "Includes many interesting examples of how memories for past events are socially negotiated and in some cases politically manipulated." --The Psychologist "A good study by Michael Billig on 'ideology and the British Royal family.' . . . A splendid study by Barry Schwartz on the making, or re-making, of Abraham Lincoln's reputation. . . . Michael Schudson also contributes as engaging piece on American presidential reputations. . . . A third equally valuable and stimulating contribution is David Bakhurst's account of 'social memory in Soviet thought.' . . . The study of memory, as a social and political phenomenon, is one of the most exciting areas of current work. The collection of essays under review makes a useful addition to this literature." --The Sociological Review

W. G. Sebald completed this extraordinary, important and controversial book before his untimely death in December 2001. It is a harrowing study of the devastation of German cities by Allied bombardment in World War II, and an examination of the silence in German literature and culture about this unprecedented trauma. On the Natural History of Destruction is an essential and deeply relevant study of war and society, suffering and amnesia. Like Sebald’s novels, it is studded with meticulous observation, moments of black humour, and throughout, the author’s unmatched intelligence and humanity. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Brazilian Constitution provides a remarkable set of social rights, including the right to housing. Despite this fact, struggles for decent living conditions have become key issues in the daily urban lives of many people in Brazil. Contesting the differentiated access to housing, social movements occupy empty buildings in the cities to challenge historically-rooted and excluding urban politics. Exploring the occupants' agency, Bea Wittger draws attention to the important role of female actors within the buildings. Through oral histories of participants of two squats in Rio de Janeiro, the book delivers a deep insight "from below" into their own perspectives on citizenship and gender.

What are organizations? Where do they come from? How are they transformed and adapted to new situations? In the digital age and in the global network society, traditional theories of the organization can no longer answer these questions. Based on actor-network theory, this book explains organizations as flexible, open networks in which both human and non-human actors enter into socio-technical assemblies by constantly negotiating and re-negotiating programs of action. Organizations are not macro social structures or autonomous systems operating behind the backs of individuals. Instead, they are scalable actor-networks guided by network norms of connectivity, flow, communication, participation, authenticity, and flexibility.

All around the world and throughout history, resistance has played an important role - and it still does. Some strive to raise it to cause change. Some dare not to speak of it. Some try to smother it to keep a status quo. The contributions to this volume explore phenomena of resistance in a range of historical and contemporary environments. In so doing, they not only contribute to shaping a comparative view on subjects, representations, and contexts of resistance, but also open up a theoretical dialogue on terms and concepts of resistance both in and across different disciplines. With contributions by Micha Brumlik, Peter McLaren, and others.

Pinar Tuzcu explores rapper Lady Bitch Ray's performance and particularly her use of the term Kanackin. She combines issues of popfeminism and postmigration through speculative methodology and invites us to forget prescriptive definitions by proposing paradoxicality as a source to diversify our concepts of feminism. By means of Situational Analysis, her study works through the contradictory forms of positioning that occurred in group discussions with Turkish-German university students about Lady Bitch Ray's music videos. In this book, Tuzcu argues that these contradictory forms of positioning bear traces of emergent discourses that reach beyond Western-centric descriptions of feminism in Germany.
