English Book in Eighteenth-Century Germany: Bernhard Fabian
Essay from the year 2017 in the subject Orientalism / Sinology - Islamic Studies, grade: 10, , language: English, abstract: On the 19th December 2016, Tunisian national Anis Amri drove deliberately with a hijacked truck into the Christmas Market at the Breitscheidplatz in Berlin, killing 12 and injuring more than 50 people. In the morning he had been visiting the Mosque Fussilet 33, which according to the police was a meeting point for Islamists. The terror attack triggered a public outcry and led to an increasing securitisation of Islam in public debates. Mosques as a contact point - both for Muslims in Germany and for those which come as migrants - thus form a special point of interest to be able to understand which values and beliefs influence Muslims in Germany. To this end, this paper investigates the potential of Mosques for both radicalisation and integration. It firstly analyses the factors that facilitate radicalisation, and secondly offers ideas on how to use mosques for integration, particularly pointing out the special responsibility of Imams. To offer a well-balanced analysis, this paper employs quantitative sources such as official data by the Ministry of Migration and Refugees and qualitative sources including speeches held at the German Islamic Conference and the work of Islamic Studies scholars. This paper argues that Mosques are of great influence as they form a contact point for Muslims in Germany and offer guidelines and lifestyle advice. Mosques thus have great potential: as a place for radicalisation but also as a place for integration. Mosques can be used by Salafists and radical returnees from fighting to promote a radical agenda. To use the ?positive? potential for integration, the role of the imam is of particular significance, here it is essential that the imam is integrated both into his home and host society, in order to function as a bridge. Furthermore, the potential of women has to be further expanded, to enable them to take on more active roles in shaping the community. This paper is structured as followed: firstly, an overview is given on the emergence of Islam in Germany, the organisation and the role of Mosques and the function of Imams. In the analytical section, the potential for radicalisation is first explored, followed by an outline of the potential for integration, including ideas of how to fully use this positive potential.
The massive offensives on the Eastern Front during 1915 are too often overshadowed by the events in Western Europe, but the scale and ferocity of the clashes between Imperial Germany, Hapsburg Austria-Hungary, and Tsarist Russia were greater than anything seen on the Western Front and ultimately as important to the final outcome of the war. Now, with the work of internationally renowned Eastern Front expert Prit Buttar, this fascinating story of the unknown side of the First World War is finally being told. In Germany Ascendant, Buttar examines the critical events of 1915, as the German Gorlice-Tarnow Offensive triggered the collapse of Russian forces, coming tantalizingly close to knocking Russia out of the war altogether. Throughout the year, German dominance on the Eastern Front grew - but stubborn Russian resistance forced the continuation of a two-front war that would drain Germany´s reserves of men and equipment. From the bitter fighting in the Carpathian Mountains, where the cragged peaks witnessed thousands of deaths and success was measured in feet and inches, to the sweeping advances through Serbia where the capital Belgrade was seized, to the almost medieval battle for the fortress of Przemysl, this is a staggeringly ambitious history of some the most important moments of the First World War. 1.

Scientific Essay from the year 2018 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Environmental Policy, grade: 1,3, The University of Sydney (Government and International Relations), course: Global Environmental Politics, language: English, abstract: This essay seeks to describe, analyze and evaluate Germany?s climate policy in order to argue that it is effective and progressive on a global scale, but also subject to trade-offs as Germany is a highly industrialized economy. Germany is chosen as it is an especially interesting case in the apparent conflict of environmentalism and economic growth. The essay firstly outlines a literature review. An overview of the state of climate policy in Germany is given, major current policies are explained, and (geo)political, economic and cultural factors that influence climate policy are described. Within the literature review, the researcher decides to focus on policies related to renewable energies, energy efficiency, information campaigns and innovation. Germany?s membership in the European Union (EU) was identified as major geopolitical influence, local governance structures and the German green party as influencing political factors, and the fossil fuels, automotive, machinery and equipment as well as the cattle farming industries as influencing economic factors. In the absence of a proper research body on the relationship of German culture and its climate policy, cultural factors were deducted from the aforementioned sub-sections. Subsequently, the essay attempts to answer the question why Germany?s climate policy is designed the way it is and evaluates its performance. Finally, a conclusion is drawn. The researcher finds that Germany?s climate policy is indeed successful, however especially the fossil fuel, automotive and cattle farming industries have substantial influence. These sectors are still subsidized and not directly tackled in the interest of climate policy, even though their contributions to greenhouse gas emission are substantial.
Denkt man an die Geschichte der Deutschen, so liegen darauf immer noch ? und aus erklärlichen Gründen ? die langen Schatten des «Dritten Reichs». Aber muss man deshalb die gesamte deutsche Vergangenheit, auch das, was viel weiter zurückliegt, nach wie vor mit spitzen Fingern anfassen? Nein, meint Simon Winder. Und so begibt er sich auf Spurensuche und erzählt uns neu, was zwischen der Zeit der Germanen und dem Beginn des NS-Regimes geschah. Dabei fasziniert ihn besonders das Ungewöhnliche und das, was man davon heute noch sehen kann. Er zeigt uns die schönsten Altstadtkerne, führt uns in Museen, Schlösser und Kirchen, daran entzünden sich locker plaudernde Geschichtsstunden über Künstlernaturen und Kriegswirren, über Wagner und Wald, über Erbfolgen, Einsamkeit und Erfindergeist. Und schließlich erfährt er ? ausgerechnet bei einem Schostakowitsch-Stück, das im Hofbräuhaus erklingt ?, was das heutige Deutschland trotz oder gerade wegen seiner komplexen Geschichte so besonders macht ...
Dr. Wilhem ´´Q´´ Quedlin, chemical engineer and inventor, lives for his science. A woman is not in his plans - and neither is being accused of industrial espionage. But things get worse from there. Watching Hitler´s rise to power spurns his desire to avoid yet another war that will completely destroy his beloved country. Q makes the conscious decision to fight against what he knows is wrong, even if working against the Nazis could mean certain death for him - and anyone he loves. Hilde Dremmer has vowed to never love again. But after encountering Q, she wants to give love a second chance. When Q discloses his resistance plan, it´s up to Hilde to choose between her protected life without him or the constant threat of torture if she supports him in his fight against injustice. She has witnessed enough of the Nazi government´s violent acts to be appalled by the new political power, but will this be enough for an ordinary girl to do the extraordinary and stand beside the man she loves in a time of total desolation? This World War II spy story is based on the true events of one couple´s struggle for happiness while battling a war against their own leaders. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Anderson Foster.

A pledge of love and hope paves the way for a tale of courage and resilience.... After Wilhelm Quedlin takes Hilde Dremmer as his bride, his heart is content and filled with love, but his life becomes much more complicated. As he´s pulled deeper and deeper into his intelligence work, Q feels as if what he is doing, how he is contributing to the espionage of war, isn´t enough. More than once, he´s ready to give up, but Hilde urges him to continue, to stay true to himself. She quietly bears all the hardship war has brought to ordinary people like them until one day the unimaginable happens, and she, too, wants out. But fate wanted them to stay and fight.... Suddenly, inspiration strikes: Q devises a plan to cause a devastating blow to Hitler´s regime - assassinate a key player in his organization. One life in exchange for millions of lives saved. In Q´s mind, it seems simple, but war is always complicated. Q´s plan may have a rippling effect that could potentially end the war and affect change around the world. But can he go through with it? Does Q have the courage to pull it off? Or will the looming fear that it will not only ruin him but also harm his family cause him to abandon the plan altogether? 1. Language: English.
