Franz Josef Strauß

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Franz Josef Strauß (1915-1988) war zweifellos eine der prägendsten Gestalten der Bonner Republik. Nach seiner Zeit als Minister für besondere Aufgaben (1953-1955) leitete er nacheinander das Atomministerium (1955-1956), das Verteidigungsministerium (1956-1962) und das Finanzministerium (1966-1969), bevor er als bayerischer Ministerpräsident (1978-1988) bei den Bundestagswahlen 1980 für die CDU/CSU-Fraktion als Kanzlerkandidat ins Rennen ging. Als Politiker war Strauß stets mehr als ein bloßer Ressortminister oder bayerischer Landesvater, sondern immer auch ein einflussreicher deutscher Außen- und Europapolitiker. Das vorliegende Buch zeigt, dass Strauß als überzeugter Europäer zudem ein Wegbereiter der deutschen Einheit war. Die Untersuchung der Kombination seiner Deutschland-, Ost- und Europapolitik schließt eine bestehende wissenschaftliche Lücke. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf der Vermittlung der Milliardenbürgschaften der Bundesrepublik an die DDR zu Beginn der 1980er Jahre. Hierzu wurden bislang unberücksichtigte Quellen- und Archivmaterialien ausgewertet. Strauß' Ideen und Wirken erscheinen dadurch dreißig Jahre nach der Wiedervereinigung in einem anderen Licht, sodass ihm selbst der frühere politische Gegner Egon Bahr posthum attestierte: "Chapeau! In Ordnung!" Zusätzlich aufgewertet wird der Band durch zahlreiche Gespräche mit politischen Weggefährten und Zeitgenossen.Franz Josef Strauss (1915-1988) was without doubt one of the most influential figures of the West German Republic. After his time as Minister for Special Affairs (1953-1955) he was successively head of the Ministry for Atomic Issues (1955-1956), the Defence Ministry (1956-1962) and the Finance Ministry (1966-1969). Later, during his time as Prime Minister of Bavaria (1978-1988), he stood as a CDU/CSU faction candidate for the Federal Chancellorship in the 1980 election. As a politician Strauss was always more than just a departmental minister or Bavarian premier, being also a constantly influential German figure in domestic and European politics.This book shows that Strauss was a committed European and a trailblazer for German unity. By examining the combination of his policies on Germany, the Eastern Bloc and Europe, it fills a significant gap in the academic literature. Particular attention is given to the granting by the West German state of bonds worth billions of marks to East Germany in the early 1980s, making use of previously overlooked sources and archives. Thirty years after Reunification, this places Strauss's ideas and actions in a new light, so that even his former political opponent Egon Bahr posthumously attested: "Hats off! Well done!" The book's value is enhanced by many interviews with political colleagues and contemporaries.

Stock market dynamics have drawn the attention of analysts from varied academic disciplines and commercial circles. The advent of online trading and real time facilities in the stock markets has fired a new field of interest in developing automatic trading agents that conduct trades in a relatively autonomous fashion under fixed strategies.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Ramism was a collection of theories on rhetoric, logic and pedagogy based on the teachings of Petrus Ramus, a French academic, philosopher and Huguenot convert who died in 1572.Audomarus Talaeus (Omer Talon) was an early French disciple and writer on Ramism. The work of Ramus gained early international attention, with Roger Ascham corresponding about him with Johann Sturm, teacher of Ramus and collaborator with Ascham, Ascham supported his stance on Joachim Perion, one early opponent, but also expressed some reservations. Later Ascham found Ramus's lack of respect for Cicero, rather than extreme proponents, just unacceptable.

The present volume, set in the turbulent post-World War I period, finds Einstein awaiting news of the 1919 British eclipse expedition to test the general relativistic prediction of the deflection of starlight by the sun. With the expedition's success, he becomes the first science celebrity of our age. Deeply interested in the other, stellar redshift test of his theory, Einstein supports astronomers engaged in experimental work on the issue. Piqued by early suggestions of a unified field theory, he ponders how to unify gravitation and electromagnetic field theory and also works to resolve contradictions between the new quantum physics and relativity. His open-minded exchanges with colleagues may challenge his later image as the stubborn critic of quantum mechanics. We see Einstein deeply engaged in discussing social and political issues, participating in humanitarian efforts, and intervening on behalf of intellectuals condemned to death after the fall of the Bavarian Soviet republic. He faced anti-Semitic outbursts, reflected increasingly on his own identity as a Jew and assisted in efforts toward the establishment of the Hebrew University. As an internationalist opponent of war, and a German-speaking Swiss citizen whose renown was sealed by the Englishman Eddington's confirmation of relativity, Einstein mitigated postwar hostility toward German scholars. Correspondence with family and friends documents his divorce, remarriage to his cousin, and his closeness to his two sons. Notwithstanding evidence in newly uncovered material concerning efforts to lure Einstein back to Switzerland, and also to the Netherlands, Einstein, entertaining high hopes for the young Weimar Republic, remained in Berlin. This volume reveals new facets of Einstein as he constructively participated in German and European scientific, academic, and cultural life.

Essays in Biography

2012 Reprint of 1933 Edition. Exact facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Most of the essays in this book were first collected and published in 1933, when Keynes had reached a turning point in what had by then become a highly successful career as an academic economist, as an official economic adviser, opponent of the reparations imposed on Germany, and critic of the orthodox economic policies of British governments. Before devoting himself fully to the final stages of his journey towards the 'General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money,' Keynes put together these examples of one of his favorite literary genres, the psychological portrait and biographical sketch. the book now contains almost all of Keynes's biographical writings: his savage portraits of the architects of the treaty of Versailles and sketches of other politicians, including Trotsky, Montagu, Lloyd George, Balfour, Bonar Law, and Churchill; some classic accounts of the lives of economists, including Malthus, Jevons, Marshall, Edgeworth and Ramsey.

The thread of the book is an account of the 1970 Missouri large schools high school state football championship my St. Louis University High team won. We were unlikely champions: undersized, not very fast, no home field, high academic standards for admission, half our games against Top 10 teams in the state. We barely qualified for the four-team state playoff, we faced the heavily favored title game opponent having won our previous four games by an average of just 4.5 points, including a 14-13 victory over our archrival in front of 18,000 people at Busch Stadium. I was a center and linebacker, and one of the team captains. The story of the book, though, is how football and that championship season became a refuge for my classmates and me, young Baby Boomers whose great but naïve ambition was tempered by the frightening, threatening social turmoil of the late 1960s. The Vietnam War was escalating, the Civil Rights Movement was exploding, college campuses were erupting in protest, and many of us were at war with our parents' generation. Adding to our drama, our beloved Student Council vice president and classmate was wounded in a robbery attempt on August 1 of 1970, and died two weeks later, the day before our football season workouts began. We devoted our season to him. I tell this true story from the first person, and through the reminiscences of a handful of the key characters who were central to it, including our legendary head coach Paul Martel, who died in January 2016 at age 91. I conclude the book with reflections of what that season and accomplishment meant to us, particularly as we now face the final quarter of our lives. Educated by Jesuit priests, who challenged us to question, to commit to something, and to act, we pulled together in common purpose, at least for that season. Most of us were buoyed by our belief in each other, and by our faith in God. And, at least for me, I experienced life lessons that proved invaluable for what I was to become: a daily newspaper sportswriter and columnist, then a business executive, husband and father. True sports stories such as Remember the Titans, Hoosiers, Friday Night Lights, and One Shot at Forever (the story of the small-school Macon, Illinois baseball team that finished second in the 1971 Illinois baseball tournament), offer drama beyond the tension of high school competition on the fields and courts. This story provides plenty for an avid sports fan. But it, too, offers much more. I suspect Baby Boomers around the country, and readers of all ages, can relate to the way dreams evolve, become compromised or rationalized, and come to rest. And how hard-earned accomplishments, especially those boosted by the kind hand of an unseen power, provide meaning and comfort as we reflect on the impact we have made on the world. Among the characters: our best player, an earnest and unselfish athlete who had his best game in the state championship; our only African-American teammate, whose parents moved him to St. Louis to distance him from the racial turmoil in central Alabama in the mid-1960s; our biggest player, a character seemingly straight from Clair Bee's Chip Hilton stories; our quarterback, a free-spirited genius who exasperated the coaches but pulled off heroic plays; an under-sized defensive end seemingly possessed by the spirit of his cherished older brother killed in Vietnam; and our Student Council secretary, an African-American who challenged us to confront society's racial issues and later revealed he is gay.
