Rebecca Lenkiewicz: Plays 1 FABER & FABER
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
"The Night Season is unusual; no politics, no issues, no history - just a bold attempt to grapple with the messy nature of living. It's also delightfully, rudely funny". ("Financial Times"). "Look out for the name Rebecca Lenkiewicz. It's once in a blue moon that a writer gets her second-ever play staged at the National. It's even more remarkable when you wander away at the end, walking on air...Lenkiewicz is quite extraordinarily talented". ("Independent on Sunday", Shoreditch Madonna). "A strong absorbing work, full of passion, pathos and sly humour, set in the hip art scene of London's East End...There is a rare combination of pain, wit and originality in Lenkiewicz's writing". ("Daily Telegraph", Her Naked Skin). "It is shocking to think that this is the first full-length work by a woman to be seen on the Olivier stage. But Lenkiewicz makes up for lost time by exploring the hunger for political and personal emancipation that fuelled the suffragette movement in 1913...Her play colonises this daunting space with bravura confidence. Her power lies in her ability to recapture the triumphs and tribulations of a history movement...Lenkiewicz's play plants a defiant feminist flag on the Olivier stage". ("Guardian"). "This is a big play with a big heart and I recommend it with a matching warmth. Lenkiewicz is making history here and, in so doing, demonstrating that she's got a great future". ("Daily Telegraph", The Painter). "An intimate portrait of Turner...Understated and quietly superb". ("Independent on Sunday").
Energy Democracy Springer, Berlin
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This book outlines how Germans convinced their politicians to pass laws allowing citizens to make their own energy, even when it hurt utility companies to do so. It traces the origins of the Energiewende movement in Germany from the Power Rebels of Schönau to German Chancellor Angela Merkel's shutdown of eight nuclear power plants following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident. The authors explore how, by taking ownership of energy efficiency at a local level, community groups are key actors in the bottom-up fight against climate change. Individually, citizens might install solar panels on their roofs, but citizen groups can do much more: community wind farms, local heat supply, walkable cities and more. This book offers evidence that the transition to renewables is a one-time opportunity to strengthen communities and democratize the energy sector - in Germany and around the world.§
History of Environmentalism Continuum Publishing Corporation
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
'Think globally, act locally' has become a call to environmentalist mobilization, proposing a closer connection between global concerns, local issues and individual responsibility. A History of Environmentalism explores this dialectic relationship, with ten contributors from a range of disciplines providing a history of environmentalism which frames global themes and narrates local stories. Each of the chapters in this volume addresses specific struggles in the history of environmental movements, for example over national parks, species protection, forests, waste, contamination, nuclear energy and expropriation. A diverse range of environments and environmental actors are covered, including the communities in the Amazonian Forest, the antelope in Tibet, atomic power plants in Europe and oil and politics in the Niger Delta. The chapters demonstrate how these conflicts make visible the intricate connections between local and global, the body and the environment, and power and nature. A History of Environmentalism tells us much about transformations of cultural perceptions and ways of production and consuming, as well as ecological and social changes. More than offering an exhaustive picture of the entire environmentalist movement, A History of Environmentalism highlights the importance of the experience of environmentalism within local communities. It offers a worldwide and polyphonic perspective, making it key reading for students and scholars of global and environmental history and political ecology.
Deutschsprachige Presse 2 vols Saur Verlag KG
Paparazzi or investigative journalists? Aside from such slogans, the role of the press is much discussed and very controversial. However, its importance - and its status as an instance of power in society - is widely accepted. Finally, the people themselves are crucial; those who follow critically events in politics, culture, the economy and society, and convey them to the public. This biographical encyclopaedia presents more than 7,000 persons from the media, publicist circles and the press, who were active in the German cultural area, from the 17th century up to the present. Besides journalists and publishers, the broad selection also covers editors, critics, press photographers, illustrators, caricaturists, the owners of printing plants, and professionals dealing with reader circles and sales, as well as scholars studying the press. The articles provide information on the dates of life and death, biographical background, education and professional career of the persons recorded. 207 detailed articles have been written and signed by experts. Access to the entries is facilitated by an index of German-language printed media, showing which newspapers and journals the recorded individuals worked for. Die deutschsprachige Presse contains biographical articles about well-known publishers such as Karl Gerold, Marion Gräfin Dönhoff, Axel Springer or Rudolf Augstein. Naturally, music, art, literature, theatre and film critics like Ludwig Börne, Eduard Hanslick, Alfred Kerr or Joachim Ernst Berendt are represented. But the group is much larger: many individuals who became famous in other contexts, worked at least occasionally as journalists, including the likes of Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, Karl Philipp Moritz, Robert Schumann and Theodor Fontane. Moritz von Schwind and George Grosz, for example, worked as illustrators. Further, scientists from a variety disciplines can be found: the philosopher Walter Benjamin and the sociologists Siegfried Kracauer and Theodor W. Adorno, along with Emil Dovifat, a scholar of journalism, and the literary scholar Hans Mayer. With politics there are many points of contact. Journalists and publicists act not only as critical observers but also as participants. Melchior von Grimm, for example, known primarily for his involvement with the
