This ebook edition contains the full text version as per the book. Doesn't include original photographic and illustrated material. One of the most intelligent and influential women in America reflects on her eight years as First Lady of the United States in a revealing book - personal, political and newsmaking. During her husband's two administrations, Hillary Rodham Clinton redefined the position of First Lady. How this intensely private woman not only survived but prevailed is the dramatic tale of her book. Hillary Clinton shares the untold story of her White House years and recalls the challenging process by which she came to define herself as a wife, a mother, and a formidable politician in her own right. Mrs Clinton was the first First Lady who played a direct role in shaping domestic policy; she was an unofficial ambassador for human rights and democracy around the world; and she helped save the Presidency during the impeachment crisis.

Living History – die ganzheitliche Nachgestaltung (alltags-)historischer Situationen – erfreut sich seit einigen Jahren auch in Europa in vielen Museen zunehmender Beliebtheit. Aber was versteht man eigentlich unter Living History. Und sollten es Museen überhaupt in ihr Programm aufnehmen? Ist es nicht einfach nur „Show“ oder überwiegen doch die positiven Effekte? Dieser Band präsentiert die Referate der Arbeitstagung der Volkskundlichen Kommission für Westfalen vom 19./20. Oktober 2007 im Niedersächsischen Freilichtmuseum Cloppenburg, auf der diese und auch weitere Fragen durchaus kontrovers diskutiert wurden. Dabei wird Living History im Museum sowohl unter museologischen Aspekten analysiert als auch in der konkreten Museumsarbeit in dänischen, deutschen, niederländischen und US-amerikanischen Museen vorgestellt. In zwei Beiträgen kommen zudem Akteure zu Wort, die in Living-History-Agenturen mit Museen zusammenarbeiten.

Geschichte als Theater: Unter dem Sammelbegriff »Living History« oder auch »Reenactment« wird eine ganze Bandbreite von dramatischen Formaten gefasst, die historische Ereignisse, Personen oder Zustände vergegenwärtigen sollen. Als spielerische Aneignung von Geschichte als Hobby - aber auch als didaktische Methode in Museen und Schulen - gewinnt Geschichtstheater mehr und mehr an Beliebtheit. Wolfgang Hochbrucks Typologie erfasst und erläutert alle Formate kritisch, leitet sie historisch her und setzt sie zueinander in Bezug.

Wissenschaftsjournalismus boomt. In Radio, Zeitung, Fernsehen und Internet platzieren eigenst„ndige Wissenschaftsredaktionen Sendungen und Formate. Einige private Programmbetreiber haben inzwischen eigene Dokumentationskan„le gegrndet und bestcken das Programm mit Wissenssendungen aller Art. Mit einer solchen Spezialisierung l„sst sich gezielt der jeweils interessierte Zuschauerkreis ansprechen und an das Format binden. Dabei hatten die Naturwissenschaften, was die mediale Pr„senz angeht, ber lange Zeit die Nase vorn; mit Wissenschaftsjournalismus meinte man frher fast schon synonym Naturwissenschaft, Technik und Medizin. Inzwischen holen die Geisteswissenschaften immer mehr auf. Nicht nur die Erwachsenen scheinen sich fr Wissensformate begeistern zu k”nnen. Auch die Nachfrage nach Wissenssendungen fr Kinder steigt. Von all den ?Wissenschafts-? oder ?Wissenssendungen? haben aber keine einen solch unvergleichlichen Aufschwung erlebt wie jene mit historischem Inhalt. ?Histotainment? wird dies an verschiedener Stelle inzwischen genannt. Dieses Buch befasst sich anhand zweier ausgew„hlter Beispiele mit arch„ologischen Dokumentationen, oder vielmehr mit Dokumentationen arch„ologischen Inhalts mit dem Ziel, die Rolle des Arch„ologen darin n„her zu untersuchen. Die eben gemachte Unterscheidung ist notwendig, denn eine klare inhaltlich wie formal abgegrenzte Dokumentation, gerade im historisch-arch„ologischen Segment, ist im Fernsehen nur noch selten zu finden. Die Hybridformen des dokumentarischen Formats berwiegen im Programmalltag. In den letzten Jahren ist die Anzahl jener Dokumentationen, welche einen arch„ologischen Inhalt oder zumindest einen arch„ologischen Zusammenhang vor historischer Kulisse beschreiben, enorm angestiegen. Nun ist es bei weitem nicht so, dass es vorher keine solchen Sendungen gegeben h„tte, jedoch stellt sich die Frage, wieso auf einmal so viele Formate mit arch„ologisch-historischem Inhalt auf den Markt dr„ngen. Neben den „lteren, hinreichend bekannten Flaggschiffen der ”ffentlich-rechtlichen Sender wie ?Terra X? (ZDF) oder ?Schliemanns Erben? (ZDF), ziehen die privaten Sender nach und installieren mit ?Gallileo-History? (ProSieben) oder ?Planetopia? (Sat1) eigene Magazine, in denen oft historische oder arch„ologische Inhalte unter dem Einsatz eines Arch„ologen vermittelt werden. Welchen Vorteil, wenn es denn einen gibt, hat dieser groáe Sendungsoutput fr die Wissenschaft oder den Wissenschaftler, speziell den Arch„ologen, der es in diesem Rahmen immer ”fter selbst ins Fernsehen schafft? Welches Bild wird von ihm und seiner Arbeit vermittelt? Diese Fragen werden im vorliegenden Buch ausfhrlich behandelt.

In this sweepingly ambitious volume, the nation’s foremost experts on the American presidency and the U.S. Constitution join together to tell the intertwined stories of how each American president has confronted and shaped the Constitution. Each occupant of the office—the first president to the forty-fourth—has contributed to the story of the Constitution through the decisions he made and the actions he took as the nation’s chief executive. By examining presidential history through the lens of constitutional conflicts and challenges, The Presidents and the Constitution offers a fresh perspective on how the Constitution has evolved in the hands of individual presidents. It delves into key moments in American history, from Washington’s early battles with Congress to the advent of the national security presidency under George W. Bush and Barack Obama, to reveal the dramatic historical forces that drove these presidents to action. Historians and legal experts, including Richard Ellis, Gary Hart, Stanley Kutler and Kenneth Starr, bring the Constitution to life, and show how the awesome powers of the American presidency have been shapes by the men who were granted them. The book brings to the fore the overarching constitutional themes that span this country’s history and ties together presidencies in a way never before accomplished. Exhaustively researched and compellingly presented, The Presidents and the Constitution shines new light on America’s brilliant constitutional and presidential history.

The Canadian Rangers stand sentinel in the farthest reaches of our country. For more than six decades, this dedicated group of citizen-soldiers has quietly served as Canada's eyes, ears, and voice in isolated coastal and northern communities. Drawing on official records, interviews, and participation in Ranger exercises, Lackenbauer argues that the organization offers an inexpensive way for Canada to "show the flag" from coast to coast to coast. The Rangers have also laid the foundation for a successful partnership between the modern state and Aboriginal peoples, a partnership rooted in local knowledge and crosscultural understanding.

In 1989, Tim Moore moved into the last house in Chiswick with an outside toilet. Intrigued by a subsequent encounter with an elderly former resident, he finds himself inspired to travel back to the land before now, experiencing the hardships and pleasures enjoyed and endured by Moores gone by. The journey that follows takes him through the world of historical re-enactment: living on bramble leaves, Johnny cake and porridge, Moore travels from the Iron Age to the Steam Age, from Roman legionary to Tudor master to Yankee spy, sharing straw beds and daft hats with period obsessives driven by socio-historical curiosity, disillusionment with the modern world, or a simple nostalgia for campfires, flatulence and brutality. I Believe in Yesterday is an odyssey through 2,000 years of filth and fury, to a time where men were men, the nights were black, the world was your outside toilet and everything tasted faintly of leeks.

As a young girl, Hillary Diane Rodham’s parents told her she could be whatever she wanted--as long as she was willing to work for it. Hillary took those words and ran. In a life on the front row of modern American history, she has always stood out--whether she was a teen campaigning for the 1964 Republican presidential candidate, winning recognition in Life magazine for her pointed words as the first student commencement speaker at Wellesley College, or working on the Richard Nixon impeachment case as a newly minted lawyer. For all her accomplishments, scrutiny and scandal have followed this complex woman since she stepped into the public eye—from her role as First Lady of Arkansas to First Lady of the United States to becoming the first female U.S. senator from New York to U.S. secretary of state. Despite intense criticism, Hillary has remained committed to public service and dedicated to health-care reform, children's issues, and women’s rights. Now, she aspires to a bigger role: her nation's first woman president. In Hillary Rodham Clinton: A Woman Living History, critically acclaimed author Karen Blumenthal gives us an intimate and unflinching look at the public and personal life of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photographs and political cartoons, this is a must-have biography about a woman who has fascinated--and divided--the public, who continues to push boundaries, and who isn’t afraid to reach for one more goal. "After decades in the public eye, Hillary Rodham Clinton is still an enigma, as Blumenthal (Tommy: The Gun That Changed America) emphasizes in this compelling portrait of the former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State’s journey from budding activist to presidential aspirant." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

This book focusses on the several forms of reconstructing the slave past in the present. The recent emergence of the memory of slavery allows those who are or who claim to be descendents of slaves to legitimize their demand for recognition and for reparations for past wrongs. Some reparation claims encompass financial compensation, but very often they express the need for memorialization through public commemoration, museums, and monuments. In some contexts, presentification of the slave past has helped governments and the descendants of former masters and slave merchants to formulate public apologies. For some, expressing repentance is not only a means to erase guilt but also a way to gain political prestige. The authors analyse different aspects of the recent phenomenon of memorializing slavery, especially the practices employed to stage the slave past in both public and private spaces. The essays present memory and oblivion as part of the same process; they discuss reconstructions of the past in the present at different public and private levels through historiography, photography, exhibitions, monuments, memorials, collective and individual discourses, cyberspace, religion and performance. By offering a comparative perspective on the United States and West Africa, as well as on Western Europe, South America, and the Caribbean, the chapters offer new possibilities to explore the resurgence of the memory of slavery as a transnational movement in our contemporary world.

This stimulating collection of essays in an autobiographical framework spans the period from 1963 to the present. It encompasses Gerda Lerner's theoretical writing and her organizational work in transforming the history profession and in establishing Women's History as a mainstream field. Six of the twelve essays are new, written especially for this volume; the others have previously appeared in small journals or were originally presented as talks, and have been revised for this book. Several essays discuss feminist teaching and the problems of interpretation of autobiography and memoir for the reader and the historian. Lerner's reflections on feminism as a worldview, on the meaning of history writing, and on problems of aging lend this book unusual range and depth. Together, the essays illuminate how thought and action connected in Lerner's life, how the life she led before she became an academic affected the questions she addressed as a historian, and how the social and political struggles in which she engaged informed her thinking. Written in lucid, accessible prose, the essays will appeal to the general reader as well as to students at all levels. Living with History / Making Social Change offers rare insight into the life work of one of the leading historians of the United States.

World War II comes alive through the public records and private accounts of the day... We have long relied on historians to sift through the debris of the past and piece together narratives to shape our understanding of events. But it is in the letters, diaries, speeches, song lyrics, newspaper articles, and government papers that history truly comes alive. In The New York Times Living History: World War II, 1942-1945: The Allied Counteroffensive, eminent historian Douglas Brinkley has carefully chosen the critical documents that bring to life the days of the war from the first Allied counteroffensive to the US military formation of the European Theater of Operations (ETO) to V-J Day. His selections span the momentous, such as Eisenhower's address to the troops in preparation for D-Day and Hirohito's surrender on Japanese radio, to the intimate and the obscure. Readers will find one of Tokyo Rose's broadcasts, letters from soldiers on the eve of battle, Ernie Pyle's dispatches from Sicily, and Truman's diary entries in which he wrestles with the decision to drop the A-bomb. Each primary document is accompanied by a relevant piece of New York Times reporting from the period and original text explaining the historical significance of the event in the war's progress. News photos and other images add a strong visual component to this vivid re-creation of history.
