In the shadow of catastrophe : German intellectuals between apocalypse and enlightenment by Anson Rabinbach( )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 2,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, Anson Rabinbach, an eminent intellectual and cultural historian, addresses the writings of some of the central figures in twentieth-century German thought. Rabinbach begins with a wide-ranging introduction, in which he discusses the intimate connection between apocalypse and twentieth-century German philosophy and compares the two postwar periods. He then goes on to show how diverse were the German intellectuals in their response to and understanding of catastrophe in their postwar writings
The Third Reich sourcebook by Anson Rabinbach( )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a collection of documents, mostly translated from the German, that covers the entire Third Reich, from the beginnings of National Socialism in Munich in 1919, through the rise of Nazism in the 1930s, and ultimately the defeat of the Third Reich. It is wide-ranging, covering the core doctrine of anti-Semitism, education, German youth, women and marriage, science, health, the Church, literature, visual arts, music, the body, industry, sports, and the resistance"--
The human motor : energy, fatigue, and the origins of modernity by Anson Rabinbach( Book )

31 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science once had an unshakable faith in its ability to bring the forces of nature—even human nature—under control. In this wide-ranging book Anson Rabinbach examines how developments in physics, biology, medicine, psychology, politics, and art employed the metaphor of the working body as a human motor. From nineteenth-century theories of thermodynamics and political economy to the twentieth-century ideals of Taylorism and Fordism, Rabinbach demonstrates how the utopian obsession with energy and fatigue shaped social thought across the ideological spectrum

The eclipse of the utopias of labor by Anson Rabinbach( )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces the shift from the eighteenth-century concept of man as machine to the late-twentieth-century notion of digital organisms. Step by step - from Jacques de Vaucanson and his Digesting Duck, through Karl Marx's Capital, Hermann von Helmholtz's social thermodynamics, Albert Speer's Beauty of Labor program in Nazi Germany, and on to the post-Fordist workplace - Rabinbach shows how society, the body, and labor utopias dreamt up future societies and worked to bring them about
Nazi Germany and the humanities by Anson Rabinbach( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The subject of how German scholars responded to the Nazi regime has seen a resurgence of interest in recent years. In this collection, Rabinbach and Bialas bring some of the most important and original scholarly contributions together in one cohesive volume, to deliver a surprising conclusion: whatever diverse motives German intellectuals may have had in 1933, the image of Nazism as an alien power imposed on German universities from without was a convenient fiction."--Jacket
Vom roten Wien zum Bürgerkrieg by Anson Rabinbach( Book )

5 editions published in 1989 in German and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nazi-looted art and its legacies( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This issue examines the legacy of Nazi-looted art in light of the 2012 discovery of the famous Hildebrand Gurlitt collection of stolen artwork in Germany. When the German government declassified the case almost two years later, the resulting scandal raised fundamental questions about the role of art dealers in the Third Reich, the mechanics of the Nazi black market for artwork, the shortcomings of postwar denazification, the failure of courts and governments to adjudicate stolen artwork claims, and the unwillingness of museums to determine the provenance of thousands of looted pieces of art. The contributors to this issue explore the continuities of art dealerships and auction houses from the Nazi period to the Federal Republic and take stock of the present political and cultural debate over the handling of this artwork

"New German Critique is the leading journal of German studies. It covers contemporary political and social theory, philosophy, literature, film, media, and art and reads cultural texts in light of current theoretical debates"--Summary
