Das Ist Bei Uns Nicht M Glich from the Author: Sinclair Lewis. Sinclair Lewis’ Roman aus dem Jahr 1935 führt einen Antihelden vor, der mit seinen Hetzreden die Begeisterung unzufriedener Wähler entfacht. Durch seine Lügen und eine Rhetorik des Populismus und der Ressentiments wird er Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten. Das klingt vertraut? „Eine unheimliche Vorwegnahme der aktuellen Ereignisse.“ The Guardian „Ein Populist im Weißen Haus? Literaturnobelpreisträger Sinclair Lewis hat es vor 80 Jahren durchgespielt.“ DIE ZEIT „Sinclair Lewis ist wieder aktuell.“ der Freitag „Ein Meister des absoluten Realismus." Bob Dylan 1935 in den USA ein aufsehenerregender Bestseller, heute wieder eine Sensation und aktuell wie selten zuvor. In der Übersetzung des bekannten Exilautors und Kleist-Preis-Trägers Hans Meisel – mit einem Nachwort von Jan Brandt. Sinclair Lewis wusste durch seine Frau Dorothy Thompson, Auslandskorrespondentin in Berlin, über den Aufstieg der Nazis Bescheid. In den USA beobachtete er, wie die Populisten nach Wirtschaftskrise und Sozialreformen des New Deal immer weiter an Einfluss gewannen. Der radikale Senator Huey Long versuchte Präsident Roosevelt aus dem Amt zu drängen, bevor Long 1935 einem Attentat zum Opfer fiel. Lewis diente er als Vorbild für den fanatischen Verführer Buzz Windrip in seinem Roman. Buzz Windrip, für seine Gegner ein „ungebildeter Lügner mit idiotischer Weltanschauung“ und ein gefährlicher Populist, will Präsidentschaftskandidat werden. Er gibt vor, sich für die kleinen Leute einzusetzen, und verspricht, „aus Amerika wieder ein stolzes Land zu machen“. Trotz völlig unglaubwürdiger Versprechen laufen ihm die Wähler zu, und er zieht ins Weiße Haus ein. Sogleich regiert er wie ein absolutistischer Herrscher, beschneidet die Freiheiten der Minderheiten, legt sich mit Mexiko an und lässt seine Kritiker rabiat verfolgen. Einer davon ist der liberale Zeitungsherausgeber Doremus Jessup, der sich nicht mundtot machen lassen will.

It Can T Happen Here from the Author: Sinclair Lewis. 'An eerily prescient foreshadowing of current affairs' Guardian 'Not only Lewis's most important book but one of the most important books ever produced in the United States' New Yorker A vain, outlandish, anti-immigrant, fearmongering demagogue runs for President of the United States - and wins. Sinclair Lewis's chilling 1935 bestseller is the story of Buzz Windrip, 'Professional Common Man', who promises poor, angry voters that he will make America proud and prosperous once more, but takes the country down a far darker path. As the new regime slides into authoritarianism, newspaper editor Doremus Jessup can't believe it will last - but is he right? This cautionary tale of liberal complacency in the face of populist tyranny shows it really can happen here.

Freedom Of The Individual from the Author: Stuart Hampshire. Stuart Hampshire's essay on human freedom offers an important analysis of concepts surrounding the central idea of intentional action. The author contrasts the powers of animals and of inanimate things; examines the relation between power and action; and distinguishes between two kinds of self-knowledge. Explaining human freedom by means of this distinction, he focuses his attention on self-knowledge gained by introspection. He writes: "...an individual who acquires more systematic knowledge of the causes of states of mind, emotion, and desires, insofar as these are not the outcome of his decision, thereby becomes more free than he previously was to control and direct his own life:...there will in general be a closer correlation between that which he sets himself to do and that which he actually achieves in his life." In a postscript on determinism and psychological explanation, the author provides a detailed account of some of the ways in which explanation of states of mind differs from explanation of physical states.

The Holocaust Israel And The Jew from the Author: Remco Ensel. This book is the first comprehensive study of postwar antisemitism in the Netherlands. It focuses on the way stereotypes are passed on from one decade to the next, as reflected in public debates, the mass media, protests and commemorations, and everyday interactions. The Holocaust, Israel and 'the Jew' explores the ways in which old stories and phrases relating to 'the stereotypical Jew' are recycled and modified for new uses, linking the antisemitism of the early postwar years to its enduring manifestations in today's world. The Dutch case is interesting because of the apparent contrast between the Netherlands' famous tradition of tolerance and the large numbers of Jews who were deported and murdered in the Second World War. The book sheds light on the dark side of this so-called 'Dutch paradox,' in manifestations of aversion and guilt after 1945. In this context, the abusive taunt 'They forgot to gas you' can be seen as the first radical expression of postwar antisemitism as well as an indication of how the Holocaust came to be turned against the Jews. The identification of 'the Jew' with the gas chamber spread from the streets to football stadiums, and from verbal abuse to pamphlet and protest. The slogan 'Hamas, Hamas all the Jews to the gas' indicates that Israel became a second marker of postwar antisemitism. The chapters cover themes including soccer-related antisemitism, Jewish responses, philosemitism, antisemitism in Dutch-Moroccan and Dutch- Turkish communities, contentious acts of remembrance, the neo-Nazi tradition, and the legacy of Theo van Gogh. The book concludes with a lengthy epilogue on 'the Jew' in the politics of the radical right, the attacks in Paris in 2015, and the refugee crisis. The stereotype of 'the Jew' appears to be transferable to other minorities.
