"This is an absolutely delightful book.... Hubbard is considered to be a regional humorist, but like all really good humorists, he speaks to everyone." —Humor: International Journal of Humor Research "Now an' then an innocent man is sent t' th' legislature." "When a feller says, 'It hain't th' money, but th' principle o' th' thing, it's the money." During the early years of this century, the fictional Abe Martin became one of the most popular cracker-barrel philosophers this country has ever known. First created for the ÂIndianapolis News by Kin Hubbard, the humorous and sometimes painful lines of Abe and his neighbors in the ÂBloom Center Weekly Sliphorn captured the imagination of Americans everywhere. This collection gathers together the very best sayings, humorous essays, cartoons, drawings, and a representative sample of Abe's "almanack."

Das vierbändige Lexikon beinhaltet rund 6.500 Biografien österreichischer Frauen bzw. Hinweise auf frauenbiografische Spuren von der RömerInnenzeit bis zur Gegenwart - einschließlich Geburtsjahr 1938 - und ist auf einen Wirkungsbereich in den geografischen Grenzen des heutigen Österreich bezogen. Es zeigt eindrucksvoll das Wirken von Frauen in Politik, Gesellschaft, Kultur und Geschichte, betritt dadurch in vielen Bereichen biografisches Neuland und eröffnet neue Forschungsperspektiven. Die Konzeption des Lexikons orientiert sich an den theoretischen Überlegungen einer feministischen Biografieforschung, welche es erlaubt, weibliche Lebensläufe in deren genderspezifischer Bedeutung zu reflektieren und zu würdigen. Das Lexikon ist Teil des multimodularen Dokumentations-, Forschungs- und Vernetzungsprojekts „biografiA. Biografische Datenbank und Lexikon österreichischer Frauen" am Wiener Institut für Wissenschaft und Kunst.

Präsentiert werden die Berliner „jüdischen Salons“ um 1800 anhand neuer Quellen als ebenso lebendiges wie fragiles kommunikatives Netz. Der Querschnitt durch die Salongesellschaft des Beispieljahres 1794/95 macht eine Geselligkeitskultur sichtbar, in der sehr verschiedene Orte zu „Salons“ werden konnten, und in der Gäste und Gastgeberinnen (wieder) zu entdecken sind. Längsschnitte durch rekonstruierte, jahrzehntelang geführte Korrespondenzen erlauben die Frage nach Wendepunkten in der Wahrnehmung jüdischer Gastgeberinnen und nach möglichen Wechselwirkungen zwischen Salons und zeitgenössischen Emanzipationsdiskursen.
