This book offers a collection of texts by Carl Friedrich von Weizsaecker (1912-2007), a major German universal scientist who was also a pioneer in physics, philosophy, religion on issues of politics and peace research. He worked with Werner Heisenberg and Otto Hahn in the German Uranverein, obtained a patent for plutonium during World War II and was an opponent of the nuclear armament of the German armed forces (1957). Furthermore, he published a study on the inability to defend Germany (1971) that was instrumental in the debate on defensive defense since the mid 1970s. He wrote on war and peace, peace and truth, policy implications of nuclear energy, on ethical issues of modern strategy, on consequences of war and war prevention and on the theory of power. He coined the term world domestic policy which still covers a valid theory for political, institutional secured world peace in the atomic age.
Austrian-born economist Friedrich Hayek´s 1944 work, The Road to Serfdom, analyzes the ways in which excessive government planning can erode democracy. Published while World War II still raged, the work draws influential parallels between the totalitarianism of both socialism and Nazism and increasing control exerted by Western democracies. Drawing on observable evidence from Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany, and the Soviet Union, Hayek demonstrates the ways in which government economic planning, in particular, erodes the mechanisms of democracy and individual freedom along with it. A key work of the post-World War II era, The Road to Serfdom is still relevant today, more than 70 years after it was first published. It continues to be hailed by opponents of big government and central planning as well as defenders of free-market capitalism. Hayek has been translated into more than 20 languages and has influenced the economic policies of many governments. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Macat.com.

This study is based on the current understanding of parody as an ironic and metaliterary type of intertextuality. The affinity between parody and irony asserted in Early Romantic literary theory validates the application of the term to Goethes subtle novel. By presenting an intertextual solution to the enigma of the names, the study reveals the secret target of the narrators parodic wit to be the newly converted Friedrich Schlegel whose recent publications had just carried over previous attacks against Goethes Classicism from the realm of art into the fields of language theory and literature. The book shows how Goethe appropriated his opponents polemical language to retaliate with an ironic evocation of his charges and recommendations in the guise of a romantic novel.
Franz Josef Strauß ist eine der faszinierendsten und zugleich umstrittensten Gestalten der deutschen Nachkriegspolitik. Im Mittelpunkt der Biographie steht die Frage, aus welchen Gründen Strauß trotz seiner überragenden Fähigkeiten niemals Bundeskanzler geworden ist. Daneben widmet sich die Biographie auch wichtigen Ereignissen wie der Rhöndorfer Konferenz, der mysteriösen ´´Spiegel´´-Affäre, der (absichtlich) missverstandenen Sonthofen-Rede, Strauß´ Rolle im ´´Deutschen Herbst´´ und dem geheimnisvollen ´´Milliardenkredit´´. Diese Biographie ist die umfangreichste und umfassendste, die jemals über FJS geschrieben wurde. Sie ist zudem mit wissenschaftlicher Präzision verfasst. Besonders hervorzuheben sind 22 Interviews mit Weggefährten, Familienmitgliedern und Opponenten wie beispielsweise Egon Bahr, Norbert Blüm, Hans-Dietrich Genscher, Monika Hohlmeier, Wilfried Scharnagl, Gerd Schmückle, Gerold Tandler, Horst Teltschik, Theo Waigel und Friedrich Zimmermann. Der Leser wird im Verlauf dieses Buches einen anderen, einen neuen Franz Josef Strauß entdecken, wie man ihn bislang nicht kannte - und der Wahrheit über dieses umstrittene Politikerphänomen näher kommen als jemals zuvor.
