Der größte Teil der aus vielen Ländern Europas stammenden nationalsozialistischen Raubkunst befand sich bei Kriegsende 1945 in Depots in der amerikanischen Besatzungszone. Die Sicherstellung und Rückführung dieser Kunstwerke sowie ausgelagerter deutscher Museumsbestände lag in Händen der 'Monuments, Fine Arts & Archives Section' der amerikanischen Militärregierung. Das reich bebilderte Buch behandelt die Geschichte der größten amerikanischen Kunstsammelstelle, des in den ehemaligen NSDAP-Gebäuden am Königsplatz in München eingerichteten Central Collecting Point. Ausländische Raubkunst wurde hauptsächlich von hier aus restituiert. Im Mittelpunkt stehen Standort, Einrichtung, Mitarbeiter und Arbeit der Institution in den Jahren 1945 bis 1949. Einzelne Restitutionsvorgänge werden exemplarisch untersucht. Die Geschichte des aus dem Collecting Point hervorgegangenen Zentralinstituts für Kunstgeschichte und die Ausstellungspolitik des Amerika-Hauses werden im Rahmen der 'Re-Education' und des Wiederaufbaus der Münchner und westdeutschen Kunst- und Kulturszene nach 1945 beleuchtet.

Consultant eye surgeon, Eric Arnott, was one of the original pioneers of small-incision surgery. He was the first to perform modern Phaco surgery in Europe and designed lens implants that have restored the sight to millions of patients. The word autobiography is simply insufficient to describe this book, which is a remarkable testament to the life, works and marriage of a remarkable man. The book details the original invention of the lens implant by Harold Ridley, who Eric worked with in his early years of medical training. It goes on to follow the development of small-incision Phaco surgery, instigated by Charlie Kelman, and the disinterest and contempt held by the peers of these ophthalmologic pioneers. The author describes every advance in this field of ophthalmology in fascinating detail. The importance to Eric of religion, spirituality, family life and helping others less fortunate than himself is reinforced in this enthralling and at times very amusing read. Arnott draws you into his narrative, rousing thoughts of disbelief as you are compelled to continue reading, each new chapter and event in his life proving as fascinating as the last. Entertaining and illuminating, A New Beginning in Sight provides a detailed history of ophthalmology and is essential reading for ophthalmologists, other specialists and non-specialists alike.

A Textual Frame Analysis of the Political Campaign Film


Author: Joanne Morreale

Category: Political Science

This book is a postmodern analysis of Ronald Reagan's 1984 film, A New Beginning, which marked the coming-of-age of the televisual political campaign film. The film was a landmark in the art of political filmmaking. Its thesis proclaimed a resurgence of American pride, patriotism, and prosperity under the leadership of Ronald Reagan. A New Beginning was unprecedented for a number of reasons: it replaced the traditional nominating speech for the candidate at the Republican National Convention; its form was a hybrid documentary and advertisement; it illustrated the use of televisual rebirth rhetoric to gain public support for a political ideology; and, most importantly, the masterful project documented a shift from verbal to visual rhetoric in American presidential campaigning. The author examines the film as a cultural text and as an effective political tool. Framing, ideology, myth, and visual cliché are analytic tools used to deconstruct the film; the method combines rhetorical theory with communication theory and semiotically-based theories of film and television. Morreale gives insight into the increasingly prevalent use of television to create a political reality.

I have found that writing was my therapy to ease the pain or confusion or even joy that I couldnt express to others. I closed myself to others about my feelings for a very long time, so writing was my escape to avoid being judged. The paper never judged me, so I vented as much as I could. I found my joy in writing in middle school, but I decided to document my poems around my freshman year of high school. This book is of about ten years of my personal feelings, experiences or just inspiration. For the first time Im allowing people to come into my personal world, exposing myself in a way Ive never thought I ever would.

In A New Beginning, Lee Joel Tiru courageously opens his heart and mind to the emotional and physical challenges he faced as a morbidly obese youngster and teenager. While it is no longer uncommon for one to admit to being fat, it is quite rare for one to lay oneself open, so the reader can sense his heartache and desperation and share equally in his joys and triumphs. Lee Tiru knows whereof he speaks; he offers a textbook example of how to set a course for changing ones life and for reaching and exceeding powerful life goals. He does not beat the reader perhaps equally obese as he once was over the head to change, but lays out reasonable challenges nonetheless to leave the reader with hope that there is life beyond misery. His words are applicable to any of lifes difficulties: set a goal and persevere, always mindful of victory.

Recasting the U.S.-Japan Economic Relationship

The time is ripe for a bold new initiative to recast the U.S.-Japan economic relationship for the 21st century. A new Japan is emerging. Foreign investment is on the rise. Tokyo is deregulating and restructuring its economy. A new generation of entrepreneurs and venture capitalists has emerged. But a more vibrant, sustainable Japanese economy is threatened by the crushing weight of Japans mounting public debt, the burden of its aging and shrinking population and the cumulative toll of years of economic stagnation. New governments in Washington and Tokyo have a unique opportunity to reinvigorate the U.S.-Japan relationship and to accelerate the pace and redirect the nature of change in the Japanese economy by creating a U.S.-Japan " open marketplace" --free of tariffs, with minimal regulatory impediments and an increasing freedom to do business--by the year 2010. This effort would include harmonization and mutual recognition of domestic regulations, meaningful enforcement of competition policy, deeper restructuring of the Japanese economy, and a dramatic increase in Japanese imports and greater acceptance of foreign investment. In this effort, the United States must assert its economic self-interest through new structural and sectoral trade initiatives and stepped up multilateral market-opening pressure through cases brought to the World Trade Organization. A New Beginning: Recasting the U.S.-Japan Economic Relationship, by Bruce Stokes, is a road map for U.S.-Japan economic relations in the 21st century.

...The biggest challenge was to motivate the staff and convince them of the sincerity of our efforts. I had personally toured over 500 branches, motivated thousands of staff, and organised many training programmes with the view to shore up their morale and give them a sense of confidence and courage to face reality and move on to resurrect the bank...surely the staff and the union were not always forthcoming but it was understandable; once they understood the pitch and purpose of the mission; they came along all the way... ---From the Preface
