In more than 2,000 issues, British Vogue magazine has acted as a cultural barometer, putting fashion in the context of the larger world in which we live - how we dress, how we entertain, what we eat, listen to, watch, who leads us, excites us and inspires us. The century's most talented photographers, illustrators and a rtists have contributed to it. In Lee Miller it had, unexpectedly, its own war photographer; in Norman Parkinson, Cecil Beaton, David Bailey, Snowdon and Mario Testino the greatest portrait and fashion photographers of their generation; and in Beaton and Irving Penn two giants of twentieth - century photography. From 1892, American Vogue chronicled the life of beautiful people - their clothes, parties, houses and habits - and the magazine was exported for intrigued British readers. In 1916, when the First Wo rld War made trans atlantic shipments impossible, its proprietor, Cond� Nast, authorised a British edition. It was an immediate success, and over the following ten decades of uninterrupted publication continued to mirror its times - the austerity and optimi sm that followed two world wars, the 'Swinging London' scene of the sixties, the radical seventies, the image - conscious eighties - and in its second century remains at the cutting edge of photography and design. Decade by decade, Vogue 100 : A Century of St yle celebrates the greatest moments in fashion, beauty and portrait photography. Illustrated throughout with well - known images, as well as th e less familiar and recently rediscovered, the book focuses on the faces that shaped the cultural landscape: from Matisse to Bacon, Freud and Hirst, from Dietrich to Paltrow, from Fred Astaire to David Beckham, from Lady Diana Cooper to Lady Diana Spencer. It features the fashion designers who defined the century - Dior , Galliano , Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, McQueen - and explores more broadly the changing form of the twentieth - century woman.

British Vogue is turning one hundred. The glossy magazine has always reflected styles--and well beyond the area of fashion. On the occasion of its centennial, this luxury volume provides a fascinating survey of a century of British cultural history with the help of spectacular images. The ranks of photographers who have lent this glamorous kaleidoscope its unique character since the first issue in September 1916 include David Bailey, Cecil Beaton, Lee Miller, Irving Penn, Lord Snowdon, and Mario Testino. The book focuses on faces that have become icons: artists such as Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Damien Hirst, and Henri Matisse; stars ranging from Rudolph Valentino and Marlene Dietrich to Gwyneth Paltrow and David Beckham; and prominent women such as Lady Diana Cooper or Lady Diana Spencer. The volume naturally also features the fashion designers who defined the century--Coco Chanel, Alexander McQueen, and Yves Saint Laurent among them--and reflects the ever-changing female silhouette.

The secret diary of Vogue Editor-in-Chief Alexandra Shulman and the real story behind the BBC TV ABSOLUTELY FASHION documentary. 'One of the great social diaries of our time . . . should become a classic.' Sunday Times 'Eye-popping, brilliantly candid' Evening Standard What a year for Vogue! Alexandra Shulman reveals the emotional and logistical minefield of producing the 100th anniversary issue (that Duchess of Cambridge cover surprise), organizing the star-studded Vogue 100 Gala, working with designers from Victoria Beckham to Karl Lagerfeld and contributors from David Bailey to Alexa Chung. All under the continual scrutiny of a television documentary crew. But narrowly-contained domestic chaos hovers - spontaneous combustion in the kitchen, a temperamental boiler and having to send bin day reminders all the way from Milan fashion week. For anyone who wants to know what the life of a fashion magazine editor is really like, or for any woman who loves her job, this is a rich, honest and sharply observed account of a year lived at the centre of British fashion and culture.

Die Jahre mit Barack Obama

Acht Jahre lang sah Ben Rhodes fast alles, was im Herzen von Barack Obamas Präsidentschaft passierte. In seinem rasant geschriebenen, aufrichtigen, klugen Buch berichtet er, was hinter den Kulissen wirklich geschah. Es ist die Erzählung von einem Ausnahmepolitiker, dessen Idealismus die Welt im Sturm eroberte, auf die Härten der Realität stieß, sich anpassen musste - und trotzdem überlebte. Mit 29 Jahren und einem Sack voll Hoffnung stößt Ben Rhodes 2007 zum Team von Barack Obama und wird zu einem seiner engsten Vertrauten. Er ist mittendrin, als das Atomabkommen mit dem Iran ausgehandelt wird, als die Annäherung an Kuba eingeleitet wird, als die Entscheidung fällt, in Syrien nicht zu intervenieren, und als die Wahl von Donald Trump das Projekt Obama jäh beendet. Ben Rhodes schildert grandios die Dramen dieser Präsidentschaft, die Konflikte, in die Obama geriet, und die Grenzen des Machbaren, auf die er traf - selten hat man einen so intimen, luziden Einblick in die inneren Gesetze der Politik bekommen. Wir sehen Barack Obama aus nächster Nähe, mit seiner großen Persönlichkeit, seinem scharfen Verstand, seinen Träumen und Zweifeln, seinem Charisma und Charme. Ein einzigartiges Zeitdokument und ein Lehrstück darüber, was in der Politik möglich ist.

Oratio ad Graecos

Author: Tatianos
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
ISBN: 9783161509391
Category: Religion
Page: 308

English summary: Tatian's Oratio ad Graecos, written in the second century AD, is of historico-cultural and theological significance. It facilitates the understanding of a Christianity which was increasingly taking hold of the higher social classes and which was no longer willing to accept the sovereignty of a pagan culture in the Greco-Roman world. It is thus early evidence of a growing mood in emerging Christianity that indicated the will to enter into the battle between the cultures. In this new critical edition, Jorg Trelenberg provides a reliable source text and a new translation which takes the current state of research into consideration. Numerous explanations contribute to easy understanding; the introduction to the work combines all the scholarly discussions of the last one and a half centuries. At the end of the book the author deals with particular problems, such as the relationship between Tatian and Justin, the question of Tatian's gnostic heresy or the problem of the literary genre of this unusual work. German description: Tatians O ratio ad Graecos ist eine kulturhistorisch und theologisch hochst wertvolle Schrift des zweiten nachchristlichen Jahrhunderts. Sie erleichtert das Verstandnis eines Christentums, das zunehmend auch die hoheren sozialen Schichten ergreift und mit wachsendem Selbstbewusstsein nicht mehr bereit ist, die pagane Kulturhoheit in der griechisch-romischen Welt zu akzeptieren. Der Autor versteht sich als die Stimme einer ausserlich unterdruckten, aber innerlich stolzen religiosen Minderheit, die sich von deklassierenden Vorurteilen mehr und mehr emanzipieren und gesellschaftliche Erniedrigung nicht langer ertragen will. Die Oratio ad Graecos ist ein beredtes Zeugnis fur eine im aufstrebenden Christentum sich verstarkende Stimmung und Neigung, allmahlich den aKampf der Kulturen zu probieren und mit allen Konsequenzen aufzunehmen.In seiner kritischen Neu-Edition lasst Jorg Trelenberg die handschriftliche Uberlieferung des, den eine hochspekulative Textemendation in der Vergangenheit stark verfremdet hatte, wieder starker zur Geltung kommen. Seine neue deutsche Ubersetzung ersetzt die verdienstvolle, aber nach nunmehr 100 Jahren veraltete Version in der BKV durch eine moderne, den fortgeschrittenen Forschungsstand berucksichtigende Fassung. Zahlreiche Sacherklarungen bieten dem modernen Leser Hilfen fur das Verstandnis, die ausfuhrliche Werkeinleitung bundelt die gelehrte Diskussion der letzten anderthalb Jahrhunderte. Einen Abschluss bildet die Erorterung von Spezialproblemen, beispielsweise das Verhaltnis Tatians zu Justin, die Frage nach Tatians gnostischer Haresie oder auch das Problem der Gattung dieses ungewohnlichen und in seiner Art einmaligen Werkes.
