Deutschland schafft sich ab

Wie wir unser Land aufs Spiel setzen

Thilo Sarrazin beschreibt mit seiner profunden Erfahrung aus Politik und Verwaltung die Folgen, die sich für Deutschlands Zukunft aus der Kombination von Geburtenrückgang, problematischer Zuwanderung und wachsender Unterschicht ergeben. Er will sich nicht damit abfinden, dass Deutschland nicht nur älter und kleiner, sondern auch dümmer und abhängiger von staatlichen Zahlungen wird. Sarrazin sieht genau hin, seine Analyse schont niemanden. Er zeigt ganz konkret, wie wir die Grundlagen unseres Wohlstands untergraben und so den sozialen Frieden und eine stabile Gesellschaft aufs Spiel setzen. Deutschland läuft Gefahr, in einen Alptraum zu schlittern. Dass das so ist, weshalb das so ist und was man dagegen tun kann, davon handelt dieses Buch.

Das Bundesministerium für Bildung und Wissenschaft hat während einer Reihe von Jahren Mittel zur Finanzierung eines deutschen Beitrages zum European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management in Brüssel zur Verfügung gestellt. Es hat damit internationale Forschung auf dem Gebiet der Betriebswirtschaftslehre möglich gemacht und gleichzeitig die Entwicklung des Gebietes der Internationalen Betriebswirtschaftslehre in der Bundes republik maßgeblich gefördert. Mit ihrer Tagung über Stand und Aufgaben der internationalen Forschung auf dem Gebiet der Betriebswirtschaftslehre, die am 14. und 15. Januar 1981 im Hause der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft in Bad Godesberg stattfand, wollten die Hochschul lehrer der Betriebswirtschaftslehre in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, die eng mit dem European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management zusammenarbeiten, Rechen schaft über die bisher geleistete Arbeit ablegen und auf Lücken in der Forschung hinwei sen. Die hier abgedruckten Referate bildeten die Grundlage der Diskussion. Die Gliederung des Bandes entspricht den Hauptgebieten, auf denen am European Insti tu te in Brüssel international geforsch t wird: Finanzierung der Unternehmung und internationale Kapitalmärkte Produktion und Produktionsplanung Forschung und Absatzpolitik der Unternehmung Organisation der internationalen Unternehmung Rechnungslegung und Bilanzen. Die Beiträge unterstreichen ebenso wie die Diskussionen während der Tagung, daß beachtliche Fortschritte auf den genannten Gebieten durch deutsche Forscher erzielt werden konnten als Folge der internationalen Atmosphäre des European Institute. Der Erfahrungsaustausch unter den Kollegen aus den europäischen Ländern, die Mitglieder des European Institutes sind, und den Forschern aus den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika sowie die Arbeit an gemeinsamen Forschungsprojekten haben sich als außerordentlich anregend und fruchtbar erwiesen.

One of the most important postwar German authors, Uwe Johnson is significant not only for his unique literary style and linguistic creativity, but also because of the thematic issues addressed in his works. He was the first German author to treat, in fiction, the division of Germany after the war. He explores its psychological, political, and cultural manifestations in a network of characters and places unmatched in complexity and authenticity.Understanding Uwe Johnson provides a comprehensive overview of this author's work, concentrating on his five most important novels: Ingrid Babendererde, Speculations about Jakob, The Third Book about Achim, Two Views, and Anniversaries, from the Life of Gesine Cresspahl. A chapter dedicated to Johnson's life describes the themes that concerned Johnson in his scandalized existence in both Germanys, Great Britain, and the United States. Especially noteworthy is the discussion of Johnson's theoretical ideas on writing novels and the importance of narrativesin everyday life.
