Orlando ist jung, gut aussehend – und seine Schönheit soll niemals vergehen. Ein Wunsch, der ihm zum Schicksal wird: Er durchlebt beinahe vier Jahrhunderte und vier verschiedene Lebensentwürfe, ohne merklich zu altern. In diesem furiosen Roman, als Biographie getarnt, geben sich die literarischen Genres ein lustvolles Stelldichein. Sprachlicher Übermut und Stilsicherheit halten sich unübertroffen die Waage. Eine moderne Neuübersetzung, die erstmals den Ton des Originals trifft. Melanie Walz gelingt es, dieses Paradestück der Kunst Virginia Woolfs zu neuem Leben zu erwecken und ein unvergessliches Leseerlebnis zu schaffen.

Wir sind nicht klüger als die Menschen, die erlebt haben, wie überall in Europa die Demokratie unterging und Faschismus, Nationalsozialismus und Kommunismus kamen. Aber einen Vorteil haben wir. Wir können aus ihren Erfahrungen lernen. „Leiste keinen vorauseilenden Gehorsam.“ So lautet die erste von 20 Lektionen für den Widerstand, mit denen Timothy Snyder die Bürger der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika vorbereitet auf das, was gestern noch unvorstellbar zu sein schien: einen Präsidenten, der das Gesicht der Demokratie verstümmelt und eine rechtsradikale Tyrannei errichtet. Doch nicht nur in den USA sind Populismus und autoritäres Führertum auf dem Vormarsch. Auch in Europa rückt die Gefahr von rechts immer näher – als ob es das 20. Jahrhundert und seine blutigen Lehren niemals gegeben hätte. Snyders historische Lektionen, die international Aufsehen erregt haben, sind ein Leitfaden für alle, die jetzt handeln wollen - und nicht erst, wenn es zu spät ist. Lektion 8: „Setze ein Zeichen.“ Dieses Buch tut es. Tun Sie es auch.

Why are some white, middle-class activists experiencing difficulty creating alliances across racial and class differences? What are the obstacles and what is being done to overcome them? What type of movement structures, cultures, and practices can best facilitate inter-racial, inter-class solidarity? Stories of Inclusion? explores these questions through an ethnographic study of a predominately white, middle-class contemporary peace and justice network that is working to create a racially and class diverse community of activists. Addressing a very significant and greatly under researched topic, Stories of Inclusion? raises important and critical questions for the peace movement as well as larger society. In accessible prose, this study bridges the literatures of social movement theory, critical race studies, and feminist theory, and offers new insight into how power and privilege can affect the process of creating inclusive communities. Drawing on data the author collected through in-depth interviews, interpretive focus groups, and over two years of participant observation, this study explores how white, middle-class privilege influences political analyses, definitions of peace work, and approaches to alliance building. The findings are compelling and reveal that even those who have developed an oppositional political consciousness and have pledged to work across racial and class divides can still foster exclusive organizing practices. This study also offers examples on how some activists are acknowledging privilege, transforming their worldviews, and beginning to establish fruitful relationships across differences. This important work emphasizes the continuing importance of race for those collective actors attempting to construct inclusive movements across diverse groups, while also offering important practical solutions on how to bridge differences. The conclusion offers a framework for building a new agenda for the peace and justice movement.

Die "Politik" des Aristoteles ist der Gründungstext der politischen Philosophie: die erste systematische Abhandlung über den Staat, seine Verfassung und seine ökonomischen Grundlagen. Nach einer Analyse des Begriffs der Herrschaft entfaltet Aristoteles die These, dass der Mensch von Natur aus ein politisches Lebewesen sei. Die staatliche Gemeinschaft wird als eine autarke Einheit verstanden, die das gute Leben ihrer Bürger ermöglichen soll. In Auseinandersetzung mit anderen theoretischen Entwürfen und der Vielfalt bestehender staatlicher Ordnungen untersucht Aristoteles ein weites Themenspektrum, das von Bürgertugenden und Gesetzen über die Einrichtung, den Wandel und die Erhaltung von Verfassungen bis zum Entwurf eines Idealstaates reicht. Der kooperative Kommentar rekonstruiert in 12 Originalbeiträgen die Argumentation des vielschichtigen Textes, bettet die zentralen Fragen in den historischen und systematischen Zusammenhang ein und fordert dazu heraus, die Aristotelischen Lehrstücke kritisch weiterzudenken.
