Im Rahmen der Debatten über die Tragfähigkeit des Said'schen Orientalismus-Konzepts wurde Ostmitteleuropa bislang bestenfalls als Objekt hegemonialer Diskurse in den Blick genommen. Im Kontrast dazu wird in diesem Band nach ostmitteleuropäischen Orientalismen von 1800 bis in die Zwischenkriegszeit gefragt. Die interdisziplinären Beiträge thematisieren die Wahrnehmungen und Deutungen des Orients in jener europäischen Großregion - vom Baltikum bis zur Krim, von Polen bis nach Bosnien -, die über Jahrhunderte durch die Nachbarschaft zum Osmanischen Reich geprägt wurde. Im Fokus stehen dabei sowohl die Akteure, Institutionen und Diskurse als auch die unterschiedlichen Orient-Topoi sowie deren Darstellung in der Literatur und in den bildenden Künsten.

Ein internationales Gemeinschaftswerk, das erstmals die Vielfalt der Geschichtsschreibungen in aller Welt als Panorama vor Augen führt. Weltregionen sind geografische Areale, Klimazonen, sie repräsentieren Kulturen und Ethnien unterschiedlichster Art. Sie weisen die vielfältigsten Geschichten in Raum und Zeit auf. Dass überdies jede dieser Weltkulturen ihre je eigene Geschichtsschreibung hervorgebracht hat, ist erst im Zeitalter interkultureller Vernetzung und Kommunikation ganz ins Bewusstsein getreten. Es sind diese Geschichtskulturen, deren Charakteristik, Wechselwirkung, Erkenntnisinteressen und politische Motive so faszinieren. Das Werk bietet erstmalig eine vergleichende Zusammenschau der Welthistoriografie.

This book provides a comprehensive, critical overview of the developments in architecture from 1960 to 2010. The first section provides a presentation of major movements in architecture after 1960, and the second, a geographic survey that covers a wide range of territories around the world. This book not only reflects the different perspectives of its various authors, but also charts a middle course between the 'aesthetic' histories that examine architecture solely in terms of its formal aspects, and the more 'ideological' histories that subject it to a critique that often skirts the discussion of its formal aspects.

The Middle East in the World offers students a fresh, comprehensive, multidisciplinary entry point to the broader Middle East. After a brief introduction to the study of the region, the early chapters of the book survey the essentials of Middle Eastern history; important historical narratives; and the region's languages, religions, and global connections. Students are guided through the material with relevant maps, resource boxes, and text boxes that support and guide further independent exploration of the topics at hand. The second half of the book presents interdisciplinary case studies, each of which focuses on a specific country or sub-region and a salient issue, offering a taste of the cultural distinctiveness of the particular country while also drawing attention to global linkages. Readers will come away from this book with an understanding of the larger historical, political, and cultural frameworks that shaped the Middle East as we know it today, and of current issues that have relevance in the Middle East and beyond.

"Edward Said was an intellectual with a passion for justice and he allowed nothing to deter him in its pursuit. Edward Said: A Legacy of Emancipation and Representation reflects this."--Archbishop Desmond Tutu "Edward Said was the great public intellectual in late 20th century United States of America. Yet the many dimensions of his genius have yet to be fully appreciated. This indispensable book is a grand response to this urgent need!"--Cornel West, Princeton University "Edward Said: Emancipation and Representation explores themes of aesthetics, identity, colonialism, Palestine, Israel, Zionism and intellectuals. Each section includes path-breaking new work in the growing field of Edward Said Studies. No other existing book deals with Said's work from so many varied perspectives."--Hamid Dabashi, Columbia University "These fine essays bring sympathetic yet critical attention to Said's remarkable range of contributions to politics and to the study of literature and culture. Reading them, one gets a vivid sense not merely of his ideas and his arguments but his vast yet unsentimental humanity."--Akeel Bilgrami, Columbia University "This remarkable volume helps to ensure that our conversation with Edward Said continues; all the articles in it draw their material or their inspiration from his work, and their diversity and richness are a testament to his extraordinary legacy."--Ahdaf Soueif, author of The Map of Love: A Novel, Booker Prize finalist "The very distinguished and diverse group of scholars who have contributed to this volume explore and illuminate the intellectual and political dimensions, and profound impact, of Edward W. Said's life and work. Their original and lively essays enrich our understanding of Said's writings, and the book as a whole is both testimony and tribute to the continuing importance, vitality and productivity of Said's legacy as a scholar, public intellectual, cultural critic and political activist."--Zachary Lockman, author of Contending Visions of the Middle East: the History and Politics of Orientalism "In this remarkable and important book, the authors interact with Edward Said in so many different ways that the reader is both amazed and out of breath. This book makes one think."--Immanuel Wallerstein, Yale University "This timely volume takes seriously the vast and challenging writings of Edward Said as they traverse the praxis of humanism, the literary contours of orientalism, and the intransigent and persistent critical of colonial power and the Palestinian struggle for freedom. A wide range of authors contest the the proper stance and trajectory of Said's work, the ramifications of his work for literary studies, aesthetics, and politics, the status of humanism and secular criticism. They converge, however, in appreciating the passionate critique of colonial occupation and dispossession from the perspective of the displaced and the refugee. Taken together, these essays show how academic reflection can and must enter the public world at precisely those junctures that the border patrols of thought would shut down. They show that the critical responsibility of intellectuals consists in marshalling media for articulating loss and hope, insisting on a presence for those whose lives are threatened time and again with erasure. This is an important and rich volume that continues the critical task of Said in a plurivocal mode, establishing the unceasing intellectual force and fecundity of Said's work."--Judith Butler, University of California, Berkeley
