Samuel Langhorne Clemens (* 30. November 1835 in Florida, Missouri; + 21. April 1910 in Redding, Connecticut) - besser bekannt unter seinem Pseudonym Mark Twain - war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. Mark Twain ist vor allem als Autor der B�cher �ber die Abenteuer von Tom Sawyer und Huckleberry Finn bekannt. Er war ein Vertreter des amerikanischen Realismus und ist besonders wegen seiner humoristischen, von Lokalkolorit und genauen Beobachtungen des sozialen Verhaltens gepr�gten Erz�hlungen und aufgrund seiner scharfz�ngigen Kritik an der amerikanischen Gesellschaft ber�hmt. Er wurde geboren, als der Halleysche Komet gesichtet wurde, und starb - wie von ihm vorausgesagt - bei der Wiederkunft ebendieses Kometen.Tom Sawyer als Detektiv erschien 1896 und war nach Die Abenteuer des Tom Sawyers (1876), Abenteuer und Fahrten des Huckleberry Finn (1884) sowie Tom Sawyer im Ausland (1894) das vierte Buch �ber den ber�hmten Lausbuben und seinen Freund, den Au�enseiter Huckleberry Finn.Tom und sein Freund Huck erleben ein weiteres gro�es Abenteuer: Wer glaubte auch, dass Juwelendiebe auf alten klapprigen Raddampfern fahren und dass Onkel Silas einen Mord begangen haben soll? Aber Tom und Huck werden den Geheimnissen schon auf die Spur kommen! Ganz so, wie es sich f�r richtige Lausbuben geh�rt.

Analyzing football as a cultural practice, this book investigates the connection between the sport and its built environment. Four thematic sections bring together an international multi-disciplinary range of perspectives with particular focus on the stadium. Examples from architectural design, media studies and archaeology are used while studying advertising, economics, migration, fandom, local identities, emotions, gender, and the sociology of space. Texts and case-studies build up this useful book for lecturers and researchers in sociology, cultural studies, geography, architecture, sport and environment.

Japan in the Fascist Era

In contrast to Euro-centric works on comparative fascism that set Japan apart from Germany and Italy, this book emphasizes parallels between Japan and its Axis Allies. Romantic nationalist ideologies attracted a strong following in all three nations as they emerged as modern states in the late 1800s. In both Germany and Japan these were, from the beginning, strongly racial in nature. Spurred by grievances against the 'status quo' powers, all three took up aggressive policies in the 1930s, producing a short-lived 'fascist era'. Japan's prominent role demands a broader perspective and consideration of 'fascism' as more than a purely European phenomenon.

Hailed as the most compelling biography of the German dictator yet written, Ian Kershaw's Hitler brings us closer than ever before to the heart of its subject's immense darkness. From his illegitimate birth in a small Austrian village to his fiery death in a bunker under the Reich chancellery in Berlin, Adolf Hitler left a murky trail, strewn with contradictory tales and overgrown with self-created myths. One truth prevails: the sheer scale of the evils that he unleashed on the world has made him a demonic figure without equal in this century. Ian Kershaw's Hitler brings us closer than ever before to the character of the bizarre misfit in his thirty-year ascent from a Viennese shelter for the indigent to uncontested rule over the German nation that had tried and rejected democracy in the crippling aftermath of World War I. With extraordinary vividness, Kershaw recreates the settings that made Hitler's rise possible: the virulent anti-Semitism of prewar Vienna, the crucible of a war with immense casualties, the toxic nationalism that gripped Bavaria in the 1920s, the undermining of the Weimar Republic by extremists of the Right and the Left, the hysteria that accompanied Hitler's seizure of power in 1933 and then mounted in brutal attacks by his storm troopers on Jews and others condemned as enemies of the Aryan race. In an account drawing on many previously untapped sources, Hitler metamorphoses from an obscure fantasist, a "drummer" sounding an insistent beat of hatred in Munich beer halls, to the instigator of an infamous failed putsch and, ultimately, to the leadership of a ragtag alliance of right-wing parties fused into a movement that enthralled the German people. This volume, the first of two, ends with the promulgation of the infamous Nuremberg laws that pushed German Jews to the outer fringes of society, and with the march of the German army into the Rhineland, Hitler's initial move toward the abyss of war.
