Novela ambientada en el Hamburgo de la postguerra de la segunda guerra mundial y protagonizada por una familia de británicos y una familia de alemanes que conviven en una misma mansión. «Hemos encontrado una casa para usted. Creo que será de su gusto, señor...», comentó el oficial inglés señalando un lugar del mapa que corría paralelo al río Elba, en Hamburgo, y el coronel Lewis Morgan se limitó a asentir, fatigado. Los años de guerra no habían pasado en balde y nada parecía importante ya en una ciudad donde todo eran cascotes y colillas de cigarrillos que los niños mendigaban por la calle. Corría el año 1946, y Morgan pronto descubrió que la casa era en realidad una mansión, propiedad de herr Lubert, un arquitecto alemán de modales exquisitos que las reglas extravagantes de la Historia habían convertido en enemigo durante el conflicto y ahora en perdedor. Lubert tendría que dejar su casa para que el ejército vencedor la ocupara, para que Morgan y su familia se instalaran en ella, para que un niño desconocido toqueteara los juguetes de su hija y el nuevo orden imperara, pero de repente el coronel tuvo una idea un tanto peculiar... Recordando las experiencias de su propia familia, Rhidian Brook ha triunfado con esta novela que pone en juego la dignidad humana y da una vuelta de tuerca a la versión oficial de nuestro pasado. Reseña: «Rhidian Brook toma un episodio de la Historia del siglo XX que yo creía conocer muy bien y lo abre de par en par: así he descubierto una novela que me ha sorprendido y emocionado.» Sadie Jones

In 1945, Europeans confronted a legacy of mass destruction and death: millions of families had lost their homes and livelihoods; millions of men in uniform had lost their lives; and millions more had been displaced by the war’s destruction, and the genocidal policies of the Nazi regime. From a range of methodological historical perspectives—military, cultural, and social, to film and gender and sexuality studies—this volume explores how Europeans came to terms with these multiple pasts. With a focus on distinctive national experiences in both Eastern and Western Europe, it illuminates how postwar stabilization coexisted with persistent insecurities, injuries, and trauma.

In this trenchant inquiry into the state of feminism, Angela McRobbie breaks open the politics of sexual equality and 'affirmative feminism' and sets down a new theory of gender power. Challenging the most basic assumptions of the 'end' of feminism, this book argues that invidious forms of gender re-stabilisation are being re-established. Consumer and popular culture encroach on the terrain of so-called female freedom, appearing supportive of female success, yet tying women into new post-feminist neurotic dependencies. With a scathing critique of 'women's empowerment', McRobbie has developed a distinctive feminist analysis that she uses to examine socio-cultural phenomena embedded in contemporary women's lives: from fashion photography and the television 'make-over' genre to eating disorders, body anxiety and 'illegible rage'. A turning point in feminist theory, The Aftermath of Feminism will set a new agenda for gender studies and cultural studies.

The Abolition of Slavery and the Aftermath of Emancipation in Brazil

DIVIn May 1888 the Brazilian parliament passed, and Princess Isabel (acting for her father, Emperor Pedro II) signed, the lei aurea, or Golden Law, providing for the total abolition of slavery. Brazil thereby became the last “civilized nation” to part with slavery as a legal institution. The freeing of slaves in Brazil, as in other countries, may not have fulfilled all the hopes for improvement it engendered, but the final act of abolition is certainly one of the defining landmarks of Brazilian history. The articles presented here represent a broad scope of scholarly inquiry that covers developments across a wide canvas of Brazilian history and accentuates the importance of formal abolition as a watershed in that nation’s development./div

Jasbir Kaur was deeply affected by the scale of human tragedy that manifested itself in the communal riots of 1984 and Gujarat. These riots and the deep scars they left behind along with the perpetual oppression of women are themes that recur in her poetry. Her poetry exposes the double standards and pseudo cultural values of our society, particularly towards women and her poems reflect her anguish for the hapless victims of such a society. She says, "As far as my poetry goes, it is a combination of my self, dreams and reality. The sense of self has been deeply marked by my destiny as a woman and a girl. The sense of self as a woman and girl is overshadowed by social taboos. All my poems could be seen as being dedicated to dreams and reality but they also address the noise and darkness, the sense of loss, alienation and rudderlessness. Most of the poems in this book date back to 1984-1988; however some of them are about the Gujarat riots and other subjects which continue to be relevant even today.

The year is 2010 and the world as we know it has come to an end. A huge comet has smashed into the earth off the coast of California, vaporizing and generating a fiery rain that engulfs the globe in a destructive holocaust. But at the opposite pole of the planet, there is a "safe zone" encompassing part of the southeast African shore and the southern tip of Madagascar where the damage is extensive but not total. Spared from destruction is a luxury cruise ship, the Queen of Africa, which carries 600 of the world's leading engineers. These outstanding technologists, traveling with their immediate families, are engaged in a seminar dedicated to finding solutions to humanity's eternal needs-shelter, food, energy, environmental preservation, and the like. But when the impact of the comet sends shock waves around the world, the passengers' first priority is to abandon ship for terra firma. Thus they head for the South African coast to begin the task of "starting over." In KwaZulu Natal the passengers find a surviving community of about 25,000, including many experienced agricultural and industrial workers. These people have been cast back, physically, to the Stone Age, but intellectually they are at the forefront of technological progress in the 21st century, and they have at their disposal the natural resources needed to embark on an industrial revolution. So begins an epic adventure of rebuilding the world from scratch, but in an unpredictable, and sometimes hostile, environment, survival itself may be the real challenge. The Aftermath is a provocative adventure story that provides a scientifically sound blueprint for surviving Armageddon.

But rather than force the owners of the house, a German widower and his rebellious daughter, out onto the streets, Lewis insists that the two families live together. In this charged atmosphere, both parents and children will be forced to confront their true selves as enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal, to their deepest desires, their fiercest loyalties, and the transforming power of forgiveness.
