ANGELA MERKEL, CHANCELLOR OF GERMANY (VIA INTERPRETER) This fourth term is my last term as Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany. In the next Bundestag election in 2021, I will not run again as chancellor. I will not run for the German Bundestag anymore, and I will not take any other political positions. FREDERIK PLEITGEN, CNN CORRESPONDENT After 13 years as chancellor, Angela Merkel [is] saying she wants to begin a new chapter. Her decision [is] a sign of a weakened position in her party—a party that suffered poor results in a regional election this weekend. Despite recent struggles, over her long career, Angela Merkel became, arguably, the world’s most powerful woman. She adopted several nicknames along the way, including “Mutti”, or “Mama” Merkel. No matter what she has been called, though, Angela Merkel has proven to be a force to be reckoned with. She grew up in East Germany under its Communist regime, studying to be a scientist. But after the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, she threw herself into the world of politics, working to reunify Germany after the Cold War. She had a knack for toppling those who underestimated her. Her mentor, the formidable Chancellor Helmut Kohl, used to tease her for her provincial manners. And yet, within a decade, she was calling for his resignation as he faced allegations of corruption. By 2005, she’d become the country’s first female chancellor. Known for being pragmatic and understated, though some found her indecisive—early on, she was criticized for being slow to act and reticent to speak out. Merkel showed her resolve in 2015 when she allowed more than a million refugees—most fleeing from Syria’s civil war—to cross into Germany. It was initially applauded by many Germans, but later heavily criticized by those who believed Germany was overburdened. Merkel’s answer to her critics was “wir schaffen das”—we can manage. It was a decision that has come to define her political career. Merkel is one of the longest-serving leaders in Europe. She’s worked alongside three U.S. presidents, four British prime ministers and four French presidents. Under her leadership, the country has grown prosperous and powerful, but Angela Merkel has also challenged Germany to open up and shoulder more responsibility for global problems. As she prepares to step down in 2021, Germany will need to decide if its new leader should continue down that path. CNN特派員 弗瑞德克.普雷根 這是預示著德國總理任期進入尾聲的宣言。 德國總理 安格拉.梅克爾(經由口譯) 第四任期是我擔任德意志聯邦共和國總理的最後一個任期。在二○二一年的下一屆德國聯邦議院選舉中,我不會再以總理身分參選。我不會再角逐德國聯邦議院的席次,也不會再接任何其他政治職務。 CNN特派員 弗瑞德克.普雷根 當了十三年的總理之後,安格拉.梅克爾說她想要展開新的篇章。她的決定顯示她在黨內的地位變弱了——該黨在本週末的地方選舉中的結果失利。 儘管近來陷入困境,但安格拉.梅克爾在她漫長的職涯中可說成了全球最有權勢的女性。她一路走來得到不少暱稱,包括「Mutti」(編按:德文),就是梅克爾「媽媽」。不過,不論人們怎麼稱呼安格拉.梅克爾,她已證明自己是股不容忽視的力量。 她在共產黨政權統治下的東德長大,受的是科學家的教育。但是在柏林圍牆於一九八九年倒下之後,她卻一頭栽進了政壇,致力讓德國在冷戰後重新團結起來。 她對於打倒那些看不起她的人很有一套。她的恩師是令人敬畏的海爾穆.柯爾總理,他以前常取笑她土裡土氣的言行舉止。然而,不到十年,她便在柯爾面臨貪腐指控時要求他下台。 時至二○○五年,梅克爾成了德國第一位女性總理。她以務實與低調著稱,儘管有些人認為她優柔寡斷——早期她因為行事拖宕、遲於表態而遭批評。 梅克爾在二○一五年展現了她的決心,當時她允許超過一百萬名難民入境德國——多數是自敘利亞的內戰逃出的。此舉起先獲得許多德國人民的讚賞,但後來卻遭認為德國負擔過重的人猛烈批評。梅克爾對批評者的回應是「wir schaffen das」(編按:德文)——我們應付得來。這是一項從此定義了她的政治生涯的決策。 梅克爾是歐洲在任時間數一數二長的領導人。她在位期間歷經了三任美國總統、四任英國首相與四任法國總統。在她的領導下,德國發展得繁榮而強大,但安格拉.梅克爾也要求德國敞開心胸並為全球問題肩負起更多責任。隨著她準備在二○二一年下台,德國將必須決定其新任領導人是否要繼續沿著那條路走下去。

For fans of Gillian Flynn, Caroline Cooney, and R.L. Stine comes Nobody’s There from four-time Edgar Allen Poe Young Adult Mystery Award winner Joan Lowery Nixon. Furious at her father for breaking up their family, Abbie Thompson acted without thinking and got arrested for malicious mischief. Now the judge has assigned her to volunteer in a program that matches teens with the elderly. But Abbie doesn’t get just any elderly person. She gets Edna Merkel, a cranky, difficult woman who’s a member of the town’s crime prevention group. In fact, Mrs. Merkel is too active a member, and after she brags that she’s on to something big, she is attacked and ends up hospitalized. Suddenly the private investigator game is real, and only Abbie—with the help of Mrs. Merkel’s indecipherable notebook—can figure out who did it. But will Abbie get to the assailant before the assailant gets to her? “Fast-paced and involving.” –Kirkus Reviews “Well drawn and distinct…Nixon’s fans will no doubt enjoy.” –School Library Journal “Another great mystery.” –VOYA

This book is a warning to everyone that the timetable of God is soon coming to an end! Jesus Christ died about 2000 years ago on the cross and he paid for the salvation of all people who ever lived on earth, with his own blood. When a person believes in his heart that Jesus died, was buried, and rose again, that person becomes born again and is a different person forever. The Bible calls this person A NEW CREATION. That is the the greatest miracle ever! God who created the whole world will actually live inside that person forever by the Holy Spirit. This book explains what will happen soon and what will happen to all people after death!

Prof. Dr. Peter Koch hat sich bei einer großen Lesergemeinde in und außerhalb der Assekuranz einen Namen gemacht. 2015 möchte ihn der Verlag Versicherungswirtschaft anlässlich seines 80. Geburtstags mit einer Auswahl seiner historischen Beiträge ehren.

Boris Hoppek is known as the creator of the Bimbo Dolls series, expressive cloth figures which were featured in Übersee 1 and Pictoplasma 2. Now we are presenting a much larger spectrum of Hoppek's multi-disciplinary urban art in this smaller but comprehensive monograph. In addition to humorous new photo installations starring his Bimbos, the book includes a broad selection of Hoppek's fanciful portraits in chalk and spray paint that can be seen in the streets of cities from Barcelona to Berlin. These are supplemented by images of his work on cardboard boxes as well as numerous illustrations and sketches. Rather than approach his art theoretically, Hoppek simply does what he likes to do. This method gives all of his work an aura of childlike authenticity. The combination of amusing motifs and an attractive, handy format make this book an ideal gift.

Geo economics and Power Politics in the 21st Century

Starting from the key concept of geo-economics, this book investigates the new power politics and argues that the changing structural features of the contemporary international system are recasting the strategic imperatives of foreign policy practice. States increasingly practice power politics by economic means. Whether it is about Iran’s nuclear programme or Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Western states prefer economic sanctions to military force. Most rising powers have also become cunning agents of economic statecraft. China, for instance, is using finance, investment and trade as means to gain strategic influence and embed its global rise. Yet the way states use economic power to pursue strategic aims remains an understudied topic in International Political Economy and International Relations. The contributions to this volume assess geo-economics as a form of power politics. They show how power and security are no longer simply coupled to the physical control of territory by military means, but also to commanding and manipulating the economic binds that are decisive in today’s globalised and highly interconnected world. Indeed, as the volume shows, the ability to wield economic power forms an essential means in the foreign policies of major powers. In so doing, the book challenges simplistic accounts of a return to traditional, military-driven geopolitics, while not succumbing to any unfounded idealism based on the supposedly stabilising effects of interdependence on international relations. As such, it advances our understanding of geo-economics as a strategic practice and as an innovative and timely analytical approach. This book will be of much interest to students of security studies, international political economy, foreign policy and International Relations in general.

In this insightful book, Massimo Fichera provides an original account of European integration as a process. He argues that European constitutionalism has been informed from its earliest stages by a meta-rationale, which is expressed by security and fundamental rights as discourses of power. Employing this descriptive and normative conceptual framework to analyse the development of the EU as a polity, chapters cover significant recent events such as the Eurozone crisis, the refugee crisis, the rule of law crisis, Brexit and the constitutional identity crisis.

Das Verständnis von gemeinsamen Werten spielt vor dem Hintergrund der Diskussion um die Fortentwicklung der europäischen Integration sowie angesichts der Zunahme von rechtspopulistischen Tendenzen in Europa eine große Rolle. Dies betrifft sowohl die wissenschaftliche Debatte und öffentliche Meinung als auch die aktuelle Politik innerhalb der EU. Auch das deutsch-polnische Verhältnis wird auf die Probe gestellt. Der Sammelband befasst sich mit Gemeinsamkeiten, Gegensätzen, Argumenten und Gegenargumenten im deutschen und polnischen Verständnis der europäischen Integration. Hierbei werden gleichermaßen verschiedene Blickpunkte auf Begriffsdeutungen der Werte und Prinzipien, auf denen die EU basiert wie auch empirische Forschung zu Politikfeldern im binationalen Kontext einer Analyse unterzogen. (Nachwuchs-)WissenschaftlerInnen und AnalytikerInnen aus Deutschland und Polen wirkten an der Publikation mit. Der Ansatz ist multiperspektivisch, interdisziplinär und lösungsorientiert.

What is steampunk? Fashion craze, literary genre, lifestyle - or all of the above? Playing with the scientific innovations and aesthetics of the Victorian era, steampunk creatively warps history and presents an alternative future, imagined from a nineteenth-century perspective. In her interdisciplinary book, Claire Nally delves into this contemporary subculture, explaining how the fashion, music, visual culture, literature and politics of steampunk intersect with theories of gender and sexuality. Exploring and occasionally critiquing the ways in which gender functions in the movement, she addresses a range of different issues, including the controversial trope of the Victorian asylum; gender and the graphic novel; the legacies of colonialism; science and the role of Ada Lovelace as a feminist steampunk icon. Drawing upon interviews, theoretical readings and textual analysis, Nally asks: why are steampunks fascinated by our Victorian heritage, and what strategies do they use to reinvent history in the present?

Realities and Fantasies of German Female Leadership

The Western tradition of excluding women from leadership and disparaging their ability to lead has persisted for centuries, not least in Germany. Even today, resistance to women holding power is embedded in literary, cultural, and historical values that presume a fundamental opposition between the adjective "female" and the substantive "leader." Women who do achieve positions of leadership are faced with a panoply of prejudicial misconceptions: either considered incapable of leadership (conceived of as alpha-male behavior), or pigeonholed as suited only to particular forms of leadership (nurturing, cooperative, egalitarian, communicative, etc.). Focusing on the German-speaking countries, this volume works to dismantle the prevailing disassociation of women and leadership across a range of disciplines. Contributions discuss literary works involving women's political authority and cultivation of community from Maria Antonia of Saxony to Elfriede Jelinek; women's social activism, as embodied by figures from Hedwig Dohm to Rosa Luxemburg; women in political film, environmentalism, neoliberalism, and the media from Leni Riefenstahl to Petra Kelly to Maren Ade; and political leaders Hillary Clinton and Angela Merkel. The essays achieve a deeper understanding of the historical roots and theoretical assumptions that inform ideas and realities of German female leadership.
