A nation in barracks modern Germany, military conscription and civil society by Ute Frevert( file )
13 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,139 libraries worldwide
'German militarism' has long been understood to be a central element of German society. Considering the role of militarism, this book investigates how conscription has contributed to instilling a strong sense of military commitment amongst the German public. A Nation in Barracks tells the story of how military-civil relations have evolved in Germany during the last two hundred years. Focusing on the introduction and development of military conscription, the author looks at its relationship to state citizenship, nation building, gender formation and the concept of violence. She begins with the
Emotions in history lost and found by Ute Frevert( file )
12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,130 libraries worldwide
Coming to terms with emotions and how they influence human behaviour, seems to be of the utmost importance to societies that are obsessed with everything "neuro." On the other hand, emotions have become an object of constant individual and social manipulation since "emotional intelligence" emerged as a buzzword of our times. Reflecting on this burgeoning interest in human emotions makes one think of how this interest developed and what fuelled it. From a historian's point of view, it can be traced back to classical antiquity. But it has undergone shifts and changes which can in turn shed light on social concepts of the self and its relation to other human beings (and nature). The volume focuses on the historicity of emotions and explores the processes that brought them to the fore of public interest and debate

Men of honour : a social and cultural history of the duel by Ute Frevert( Book )
6 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 200 libraries worldwide
Men of Honour is a wide-ranging account of the duel and its significance, from the early modern period to the twentieth century. Ute Frevert challenges the conventional view that the practice of settling disputes by duelling had died out in Europe by the end of the nineteenth century. Focusing on Germany, she draws on newspaper reports, archives and biographies to show that duelling continued to be practised widely among bourgeoisie and nobility until at least the First World War, and even later. Frevert discusses the social function of the duel and the changes it underwent between the early modern period and the twentieth century. She describes the men who took part - from young students to officers of rank, from famous writers and poets to mature noblemen - and illustrates the different times and places they chose for their combat. She explores the meaning of the duel for the participants, and in particular the ideal of 'honour' among men which compelled so many to put their lives at great risk. Men of Honour is a detailed and vivid account of male self-images and modes of behaviour in bourgeois society. It will be welcomed by students and researchers in social and cultural history and by anyone interested in the history of duelling

Gefühlspolitik Friedrich II. als Herr über die Herzen? by Ute Frevert( Book )
8 editions published in 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 167 libraries worldwide
Durch Liebe, nicht durch Furcht und Gehorsamszwang sollte der König regieren. So bestimmte es die (früh)moderne Staatstheorie. Schon Friedrich II. von Preußen (1712-1786) wusste, dass es nicht ausreicht, über die Körper der Untertanen zu herrschen. Auch ihre Herzen wollen erobert werden. Doch die Geschichtsschreibung berichtet, dass Friedrich der Große weder mild noch sanft mit seinen Untertanen umging. Ute Frevert analysiert das Herrschaftsverständnis Friedrichs ebenso wie dessen gefühlspolitische Praktiken. Sie zeigt, mit welchen Mitteln der aufgeklärt-absolutistische König die Zustimmung und Zuneigung derjenigen suchte, die seiner Herrschaft unterworfen waren. Dieses Interesse machten sich die Untertanen zunutze: Sie stellten Bedingungen, formulierten Erwartungen und reagierten enttäuscht, wenn der König darauf nicht einging. Die Historikerin zeigt, dass Herrschaftskommunikation in zwei Richtungen verläuft, und das nicht erst in der heutigen Mediengesellschaft. Im 18. Jahrhundert entdeckt Frevert die Ansätze einer Gefühlspolitik, die ihre Spuren in der Moderne hinterlassen haben
