Men of honour : a social and cultural history of the duel by Ute Frevert( Book )
22 editions published between 1991 and 2007 in German and English and held by 451 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
A nation in barracks : modern Germany, military conscription and civil society by Ute Frevert( Book )
18 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 306 libraries worldwide
A Nation in Barracks shows how military-civil relations have evolved in Germany during the last two hundred years. This book investigates how conscription has contributed to instilling a strong sense of military commitment among the German public. The author looks at its relationship to state citizenship, nation building, gender formation and the concept of violence. She begins with the early nineteenth century, when conscription was first used in Prussia and initially met with harsh criticism from all aspects of society, and continues through the two Germanies of the post-1949 period. The book covers the Prussian model used during World War I, the Weimar Republic when no conscription was enforced, and the mass military mobilization of the Third Reich. Throughout this detailed examination, Ute Frevert examines how civil society deals with institutionalized violence and how this affects models of citizenship and gender relations

Emotions in history : lost and found by Ute Frevert( Book )
18 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in English and Multiple languages and held by 171 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
Gefühlspolitik Friedrich II. als Herr über die Herzen? by Ute Frevert( Book )
11 editions published in 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 169 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

Learning how to feel : children's literature and emotional socialization, 1870-1970 by Ute Frevert( Book )
10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 135 libraries worldwide
Learning How to Feel explores the ways in which children and adolescents learn not just how to express emotions that are thought to be pre-existing, but actually how to feel. The volume assumes that the embryonic ability to feel unfolds through a complex dialogue with the social and cultural environment and specifically through reading material. The fundamental formation takes place in childhood and youth. A multi-authored historical monograph, Learning How to Feel uses children's literature and advice manuals to access the training practices and learning processes for a wide range of emotions in the modern age, circa 1870-1970. The study takes an international approach, covering a broad array of social, cultural, and political milieus in Britain, Germany, India, Russia, France, Canada, and the United States. Learning How to Feel places multidirectional learning processes at the centre of the discussion, through the concept of practical knowledge. The book innovatively draws a framework for broad historical change during the course of the period. Emotional interaction between adult and child gave way to a focus on emotional interactions among children, while gender categories became less distinct. Children were increasingly taught to take responsibility for their own emotional development, to find 'authenticity' for themselves. In the context of changing social, political, cultural, and gender agendas, the building of nations, subjects and citizens, and the forging of moral and religious values, Learning How to Feel demonstrates how children were provided with emotional learning tools through their reading matter to navigate their emotional lives
