Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: William T. Vollmann, der in einer Reihe mit Thomas Pynchon und David Foster Wallace steht, hat mit Europe Central ein Krieg und Frieden für das 21. Jahrhundert geschrieben – ein Epos in Übergröße, in 37 Kapiteln von fiktiven und realen Personen, Künstlern wie Käthe Kollwitz und Dimitri Schostakowitsch oder Militärs wie General Wlassow und Friedrich Paulus, dem Verlierer von Stalingrad. Ihre Lebensgeschichten beschwören aufs Neue die Geschichte des Zweiten Weltkriegs auf sowjetischer und deutscher Seite herauf. Aber im Zentrum des Romans steht eine Liebe: die bedingungslose Liebe von Schostakowitsch zu Elena Konstantinowskaja. Schieben wir zur Seite, was wir über Geschichte wissen, und lassen wir uns ein auf dieses wagemutige, gewaltige, faszinierende, tiefgreifende und umfassende Werk: Europe Central. »Ein ›Krieg und Frieden‹ des 20. Jahrhunderts, mit dem sich Vollmann endgültig seinen Rang in der Weltliteratur gesichert hat.« Welt am Sonntag
Download or read book Europe Central written by William Vollmann and published by Edizioni Mondadori. This book was released on 2019-09-17 with total page 1072 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Europe Central è un'opera apocalittica e grandiosa in cui il talento selvaggio di William Vollmann descrive l'incubo delle due grandi dittature totalitarie del XX secolo, l'Unione Sovietica e la Germania nazista, in guerra tra loro. Lo fa attraverso alcune storie personali segnate dalle più terribili decisioni che individui posti in condizioni estreme siano mai stati chiamati a prendere. Il risultato è una rassegna sconvolgente e inedita delle azioni umane in tempo di guerra spesso basata su figure storiche realmente esistite: poeti, militari, traditori, artisti e musicisti. Dando prova di un virtuosismo incredibile, l'autore cambia continuamente voce, punto di vista, protagonista, finendo per ridare carne (e sangue) alle persone che hanno cercato di sottrarsi all'incubo e di opporsi all'implacabile rito di morte che ha devastato il cuore dell'Europa.

Download or read book Revolution and Political Violence in Central Europe written by Eliza Ablovatski and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2021-07-01 with total page 315 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the wake of the First World War and Russian Revolutions, Central Europeans in 1919 faced a world of possibilities, threats, and extreme contrasts. Dramatic events since the end of the world war seemed poised to transform the world, but the form of that transformation was unclear and violently contested in the streets and societies of Munich and Budapest in 1919. The political perceptions of contemporaries, framed by gender stereotypes and antisemitism, reveal the sense of living history, of 'fighting the world revolution', which was shared by residents of the two cities. In 1919, both revolutionaries and counterrevolutionaries were focused on shaping the emerging new order according to their own worldview. By examining the narratives of these Central European revolutions in their transnational context, Eliza Ablovatski helps answer the question of why so many Germans and Hungarians chose to use their new political power for violence and repression.

Download or read book The Transformation of Property Regimes and Transitional Justice in Central Eastern Europe written by Liviu Damşa and published by Springer. This book was released on 2017-01-03 with total page 311 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume examines the property transformations in post-communist Central Eastern Europe (CEE) and focuses on the role of restitution and privatisation in such transformations. It argues that the theorisation of ‘restitution’ in post-communist CEE is incomplete in the transitional justice scholarship and in the literature on correction of historical wrongs. The book also argues that, for a more complete theorisation of (post-communist) restitution, the transformations of property in post-communist societies ought to be studied in a more holistic way. The main legal vehicles used for such transformations, privatisation and restitution, should not be studied separately and in abstract, but in their reciprocal relationship, and in connection to the dimension of justice which each could achieve. Finally, the book integrates ‘privatisation’ in a theory of post-communist transformation of property.

Download or read book Europe and Central Asia Economic Update Spring 2021 written by World Bank and published by World Bank Publications. This book was released on 2021 with total page 172 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Governments play a critical role in the economies of Europe and Central Asia, where government expenditures are close to 40 percent of gross domestic product and the public sector accounts for nearly 27 percent of total employment, which is almost twice the global average. The public sector often attracts some of the best educated workers in the region. And support for a larger public sector is increasing due to aging populations and their growing health care and long-term care needs, rising inequality and greater support for redistribution, and increasing expenditures as governments address the challenges posed by the COVID-19 crisis. The significant role that government plays underscores the importance of the quality of governance in determining productivity and growth and effectively responding to the region’s economic and social challenges. Digital technology and the data revolution offer the potential to increase efficiency, transparency, responsiveness, and citizen trust, directly impacting the quality of government. Across the world, the quality of government is increasingly informed by the extent to which governments harness digital tools and GovTech to optimize management, service delivery, and overall state capacity. Technology and data are also key for fostering collaboration between governments and civil society to improve public sector efficiency and service delivery. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the costs associated with delaying digitalization and GovTech implementation and the opportunities that lie in public sector modernization.
