Budweisers into Czechs and Germans : a local history of Bohemian politics, 1848-1948 by Jeremy King( Book )

21 editions published between 2002 and 2018 in English and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This history of a single town in Bohemia casts new light on nationalism in Central Europe between the Springtime of Nations in 1848 and the Cold War. Jeremy King tells the story of both German and Czech-speaking Budweis/Budejovice, which belonged to the Habsburg Monarchy until 1918, and then to Czechoslovakia, Hitler's Third Reich, and Czechoslovakia again. Residents, at first simply "Budweisers," or Habsburg subjects with mostly local loyalties, gradually became Czechs or Germans. Who became Czech, though, and who German? What did it mean to be one or the other? In answering these questions, King shows how an epochal, region-wide contest for power found expression in Budweis/Budejovice not only through elections but through clubs, schools, boycotts, breweries, a remarkable constitutional experiment, a couple of riots, and much more."--BOOK JACKET
Language variation and contact-induced change : Spanish across space and time by Sandro Sessarego( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of original contributions dealing with Hispanic contact linguistics covers an array of Spanish dialects distributed across North, South, and Central America, the Caribbean, the Iberian Peninsula, and the Bosporus. It deals with both native and non-native varieties of the language, and includes both synchronic and diachronic studies. The volume addresses, and challenges, current theoretical assumptions on the nature of language variation and contact-induced change through empirically-based linguistic research. The sustained contact between Spanish and other languages in different parts of the world has given rise to a wide number of changes in the language, which are driven by a concomitance of different linguistic and social processes. This collection of articles provides new insight into such phenomena across the Spanish-speaking world.0

Emerging voices : East European media in transition : a report of the Gannett Foundation Task Force on Press Freedom in Eastern Europe by Everette E Dennis( Book )

3 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book-length report is the outgrowth of a fact-finding mission (in July and August 1990) from the Gannett Foundation to Central and Eastern Europe to assess the current state and probable future of press freedom there. The report investigates the condition and needs of the print and electronic media of four countries--Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Yugoslavia. It explores the condition of media in the area, offers a country-by-country analysis, and lists the considerable efforts of others from the United States and Western Europe who are already there helping. Following an executive summary, an introduction dealing with the rebirth of free expression in Eastern Europe, and a summary discussing the media and people of the nations of Central and Eastern Europe, the report is in four major sections on Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Yugoslavia. Each section discusses the country in context, gives the task force report on that country's media as well as an overview of the media, and lists media contacts. Appendixes contain conclusions and recommendations of the task force, a select bibliography, a brief section on what Americans can learn from Eastern Europe, an inventory of western projects to aid Eastern European Media, and some views of "insiders" on Eastern Europe and the media.
