Women of the Renaissance by Margaret L King( Book )

3 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in German and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this informative and lively volume, Margaret L. King synthesizes a large body of literature on the condition of western European women in the Renaissance centuries (1350-1650), crafting a much-needed and unified overview of women's experience in Renaissance society. Utilizing the perspectives of social, church, and intellectual history, King looks at women of all classes, in both usual and unusual settings. She first describes the familial roles filled by most women of the day--as mothers, daughters, wives, widows, and workers. She turns then to that significant fraction of women in, and acted upon, by the church: nuns, uncloistered holy women, saints, heretics, reformers, and witches, devoting special attention to the social and economic independence monastic life afforded them. The lives of exceptional women, those warriors, queens, patronesses, scholars, and visionaries who found some other place in society for their energies and strivings, are explored, with consideration given to the works and writings of those first protesting female subordination: the French Christine de Pizan, the Italian Modesta da Pozzo, the English Mary Astell. --Publisher

Women in Greek myth by Mary R Lefkowitz( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in German and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first edition of Women in Greek Myth, Mary R. Lefkowitz convincingly challenged narrow, ideological interpretations of the roles of female characters in Greek mythology. Where some scholars saw the Amazons as the last remnant of a forgotten matriarchy, Clytemnestra as a frustrated individualist, and Antigone as an oppressed revolutionary, Lefkowitz argued that such views were justified neither by the myths themselves nor by the relevant documentary evidence. Concentrating on those aspects of women's experience most often misunderstood -- life apart from men, marriage, influence in politics, self-sacrifice and martyrdom, and misogyny -- she presented a far less negative account of the role of Greek women, both ordinary and extraordinary, as manifested in the central works of Greek literature. This updated and expanded edition includes six new chapters on such topics as heroic women in Greek epic, seduction and rape in Greek myth, and the parts played by women in ancient rites and festivals. Revisiting the original chapters as well to incorporate two decades of more recent scholarship, Lefkowitz again shows that what Greek men both feared and valued in women was not their sexuality but their intelligence"--Publisher description

The clash of civilizations and the remaking of world order by Samuel P Huntington( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in German and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1993 Foreign Affairs published an article entitled "The Clash of Civilizations?" by Samuel Huntington. No article, according to the editors of that distinguished journal, has generated more discussion since George Kennan's "X" article on containment in the 1940s. Now, Mr. Huntington expands on his article, explores further the issues he raised then, and develops many new penetrating and controversial analyses. In the article, he posed the question whether conflicts between civilizations would dominate the future of world politics. In the book, he gives his answer, showing not only how clashes between civilizations are the greatest threat to world peace but also how an international order based on civilizations is the best safeguard against war
The symbolic uses of politics by Murray J Edelman( Book )

4 editions published between 1976 and 1990 in German and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The symbolic manifestations, purposes, and uses of politics are revealed in this provocative analysis of the institution of politics and man as a political animal. Unlike the conventional study of politics that deals with how people get the things they want through government, this book concentrates on how politics influence what they want, what they fear, and what they regard as possible. In examining politics as a symbolic form, it looks at man and politics as reflections of each other. -- Publisher description from (Oct. 7, 2011)

AIDS and its metaphors by Susan Sontag( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in German and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ogni epoca e ogni società sembrano avere un oscuro bisogno di una malattia che dia corpo a ansie, paure, fobie collettive, e che sia possibile identificare con il Male.La demonizzazione della malattia ha come prima conseguenza l'attribuzione di una colpa segreta al paziente. Dieci anni fa, Susan Sontag sperimentò nella propria esperienza di malata che il cancro imprimeva una sorta di marchio su chi ne veniva colpito: era considerato (e lo è in parte tuttora) la malattia degli sconfitti e dei depressi. Fu proprio per combattere quest'uso mortificante della Malattia come metafora che la Sontag scrisse il libro dallo stesso titolo, che ha avuto vasta eco non soltanto negli Stati Uniti, e che Einaudi ha tradotto in questa collana.Ma ecco che una nuova malattia (o per meglio dire una situazione clinica che prelude a un vasto spettro di malattie tutte mortali) è venuta a sostituire il cancro come immagine di pestilenza contemporanea. La forza metaforica dell'Aids, dice la Sontag, nasce dall'aura misteriosa che la circonda e dal fatto che non si è ancora trovata una terapia adeguata. Dopo aver inquadrato l'attuale realtà clinica del fenomeno, la Sontag passa a studiare come esso viene vissuto e rappresentato nell'immaginario collettivo. Sin dall'antichità le malattie sono state intese come giudizio sulla collettività, e poi come punizione per una trasgressione individuale. Esiste un rapporto diretto tra il concetto di malattia e il concetto di ciò che è straniero, quindi minaccioso e aggressivo: non a caso si dice che il contagio dell'Aids arrivi dal Terzo Mondo. La paura dell'Aids rafforza la cultura dell'individualismo e dell'isolamento, modifica mentalità e comportamenti.Susan Sontag ha scritto anche questo libro con la passione civile, la lucidità e l'ampiezza dei riferimenti culturali (da Lucrezio a John Donne, da Debussy a Thomas Mann) che siamo abituati a riconoscerle.
