9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Thomas Jefferson praised Tom Paine as the greatest political writer of the age. The author of Common Sense and Rights of Man, Paine helped make revolutions in America and France. But beyond his inspiring calls to action, Paine harbored a deeper political vision for his adopted country. It was embodied in an architectural project that he spent decades planning: an iron bridge to span the Schuylkill River at Philadelphia. The bridge was Paine's answer to the political puzzle of the new nation: how to sustain a republic as large and geographically fragmented as the United States. Among its patrons were other giants of the time, including Benjamin Franklin and Edmund Burke, Paine's ideological opponent. Set against the background of the American Revolution, the story of his iron bridge reveals a new Tom Paine and connects this revolutionary to the vast program of internal improvements that soon transformed America. 1.

John Adams: The Man from Massachusetts , Hörbuc...
9,95 € *

John Adams was the leading political figure from New England during the American Revolution, the Constitutional Conventions, and the early presidential races. John Adams was on the Committee of Five chartered to draft the Declaration of Independence. He led the movement to appoint Thomas Jefferson as the drafter of the Declaration, helped steer the draft through the political groups established to review it, and forever after proclaimed it to be the leading document in American history. Likewise, Adams worked closely with James Madison to draft the Constitution and get it approved by the Constitutional Convention. For his service, John Adams was selected as the first vice president of the United States, serving under George Washington. After Washington retired after two terms, John Adams became the second president of the United States and later lost the election of 1800 by a whisker, to his long time friend and political ally/opponent Thomas Jefferson. This recording was done by Sam Goodyear, who regularly appears in plays about Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Abigail Adams in which they review their lives together just before both Adams and Jefferson died - on the same day, July 4, 1826 - 50 years after the Declaration of Independence was released. The Adams/Jefferson letters are considered the outstanding political correspondence of that time. Mr. Goodyear's performance attests to that conclusion. This audiobook also features a reading of the Declaration of Independence, a document dear to Mr. Adams. A brief biography of John Adams is also narrated by Mr. Goodyear. 1. Language: English.

In Charles River Editors' History for Kids series, your children can learn about history's most important people and events in an easy, entertaining, and educational way. The concise but comprehensive book will keep your kid's attention all the way to the end. The American Revolution had no shortage of compelling characters with seemingly larger than life traits, including men like the multi-talented Benjamin Franklin, the wise Thomas Jefferson, the mercurial John Adams, and the stoic George Washington. But no Revolutionary leader has been as controversial as Samuel Adams, who has been widely portrayed over the last two centuries as America's most radical and fiery colonist. Among his contemporaries, Adams was viewed as one of the most influential colonial leaders, a man Thomas Jefferson himself labeled "truly the Man of the Revolution" and the one who the Boston Gazette eulogized as the "Father of the American Revolution." Adams was an outspoken opponent of British taxes in the 1760s, one of Boston's hardest working writers and orators, a leader of the Boston Caucus, active in the Sons of Liberty, and a political leader who organized large gatherings in settings like Faneuil Hall and the Old South Meeting House. When cousin John Adams was an Ambassador to France during the Revolution, he had to explain that he was not the "famous" Adams. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tracey Norman.

59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Thomas Manns "Betrachtungen eines Unpolitischen" gehören zu den von der literaturwissenschaftlichen Forschung eher ungeliebten Texten des Autors; das gilt sowohl für die engere Thomas-Mann-Forschung als auch für die Forschung zur Literatur des 20. Jahrhunderts insgesamt. Die Gründe für diese Zurückhaltung gegenüber einem der bedeutendsten Texte der "Konservativen Revolution" und des frühen Thomas Mann sind vielfältig: Die eifernde Kriegsapologie passt wenig zu dem Bild des Autors als bedeutendem Gegner des Nationalsozialismus, das von einem nicht geringen Teil der Forschung gerne gezeichnet wird. Zumal erschweren die heute nur noch schwer zu rekonstruierenden intertextuellen Bezüge das Verständnis des Textes. Er stellt seine Leser damals wie heute im Hinblick auf seine Bedingungen sowie seine inhaltlichen und formalen Formationen vor erhebliche Herausforderungen. Eine in sich differenzierte Analyse und Interpretation der zentralen Inhalte, der Form und Kontexte ist somit auch 100Jahre nach dem Erscheinen der "Betrachtungen" nicht vorhanden. Dieser Band, der auf eine Tagung zurückgeht, die im September 2018 an der Ludwig-Maximilian-Universität München stattfand, versucht diese Lücke in einer interdisiplinären Kooperation von Literaturwissenschaftlern, politischen Philosophen und Politologen zu schließen.Thomas Mann's "Betrachtungen eines Unpolitischen" is a text which is rather unpopular with literary scholars for manifold reasons: The zealous war apology is rather incongrous with the author's image as a significant opponent of National Socialism drawn by many researchers; and the intertextual references, which are difficult to reconstruct today, render understanding the text exacting. Then as now, it poses considerable challenges to its readers with regard to its prerequisites as well as its content and formal formations. This accounts for the fact that a differentiated analysis and interpretation of the central contents, form and contexts is still lacking, even 100 years after the publication of the "Betrachtungen". This volume, which goes back to a conference held in September 2018 at the Ludwig-Maximilian-University of Munich, attempts to close this gap in an interdisciplinary cooperation of literary scholars, political philosophers and political scientists.
