Art and artist; creative urge and personality development by Otto Rank( Book )
13 editions published between 1932 and 2010 in English and held by 395 libraries worldwide
Along with Adler and Jung, Otto Rank was one of the intellectual giants in the inner circle around Sigmund Freud. Art and Artist, his major statement on the relationship of art to the individual and society, pursues in a broader cultural context Freud's ideas on art and neurosis and has had an important influence on many twentieth-century writers and thinkers, beginning with Henry Miller and Anais Nin. Art and Artist explores the human urge to create in all its complex aspects, in terms not only of individual works of art but of religion, mythology, and social institutions as well. Based firmly on Rank's knowledge of psychology and psychoanalysis, it ranges widely through anthropology and cultural history, reaching beyond psychology to a broad understanding of human nature

Om den tyske (eller rettere germanske) Freiherr Heinrich Friedrich Karl von und zum Stein, 1757-1831, preusser, som idag er relativt ukendt; han var i datiden kendt som "Napoleon's fjende". Stein var iøvrigt på et tidspunkt medreformator sammen med Scharnhorst, kendt bl.a. for sine store hærreformer og omorganiseringer af den preussiske hær. Stein var finansminister i den preussiske regering, lidenskabeligt optaget af at tjene Preussen's interesser, men var så åbenlyst hadefuld, fjendtlig og negativ overfor Frankrig, det franske folk og Napoleon, at denne til sidst krævede hans afsked, stemplede ham som "Ennemi de la France" og fik hans besiddelser konfiskeret, i den periode omkring 1805-1809, hvor Preussen var allieret med Frankrig. Senere var Stein i Rusland, og gjorde tjeneste hos den russiske zar Alexander I, han forsøgte også at overtale Wienerkongressen til at gå ind for et forenet, stærkt og samlet Tyskland. Hans politiske indflydelse siges at have været betydelig, også efter hans frustrerede tilbagetrækning fra det offentlige liv, efter 1815. I bogen beskrives Stein's liv, levnedsløb og politiske karriere og, ikke mindst, hans stilling som "Napoleon's fjende"

Jena to Eylau, the disgrace and the redemption of the Old-Prussian army; a study in military history by Colmar Goltz( Book )
6 editions published between 1913 and 2011 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
This ebook is purpose built and is proof-read and re-type set from the original to provide an outstanding experience of reflowing text for an ebook reader. Field-Marshal Von der Goltz was one of the most widely read military authors of the late 19th century; his ideas and theories of the "Nation in Arms" were to be brought into practice during the First World War, during which he served. His wide military experience ranged from the practical during the 1866 Bohemian campaign to the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71, before moving on to staff and teaching posts. He authored many works during his time as part of the historical section of the Prussian General Staff, mostly about the theory of war and the victorious campaigns of the 1870-71. A fiercely patriotic man, he was inspired to write about the great defeat of the Prussian army of 1806 as part history and part catharsis. His work is supremely detailed and his great critical military mind avoids bias in favour of the Prussians. This title is acclaimed as a military classic along with his "Von Rossbach bis Jena und Auerstd̃t" and "Nation in Arms."
