English Book in Eighteenth-Century Germany: Bernhard Fabian
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.

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.

Essay from the year 2017 in the subject Agrarian Studies, grade: 2,7, University of Hohenheim (Institut für Sozialwissenschaften des Agrarbereichs), language: English, abstract: The history of organic agriculture (OA) in Germany is not only based on the lectures of its founder Rudolf Steiner. OA in its present status as a developed economic branch is far more, for example the result of ecological and political movements against globalisation and intensification in the 70?s (rise of the ?Greens?). Economic and environmental failure, as in the 1973 oil crisis or agricultural chemical-technical intensification led to a deepening of environmental topics and social acceptance. With these societal changes, the basis for an ecologically and socially fair production was set. New political structures and decisions in the late 80?s and early 90?s boosted OA in Germany. Eastern German organic farmers restructured and enforced themselves to an enhancement of German agriculture, after the Wall Fall 1989. The EU-regulation on organic farming in 1991, decisively shaped the structure and turned OA to a lucratively subsidised business. In the following years until today, OA in Germany was skyrocketing in farming and production, as well as in consumption. From a niche product in the 80?s to economic importance in the new millennium, organic products entered the mainstream market. Today, Germany is Europe?s biggest organic consumer and its fourth biggest organic producer. The demand for organic products is exceeding national supply, therefore Germany is also the second biggest importer of organic products. Wholesaler, conventional food retailer and organic retail chains realised the market value of organic products. Thanks to conventional super markets, organic products are now obtainable everywhere. Organic retail chains, such as ?Alnatura? or ?Denn?s? are still expanding, opening new branches and increasing their assortment. Individual organic food stores and direct marketing are not holding the upward trend and getting displaced by organic retail chains. The difference between conventional and organic food retailers is shrinking. At the same time, consumer behaviour is leaning towards organic products, but still with the conventional point of view of cheapness and convenience. These double standards are symptom and evidence of a fully developed organic market. Organic products found their place in German society, not because of a complete understanding of original ideals, but rather because of the alignment of OA towards the consumer?s behaviour.

In this powerful audiobook, first published in 1943, Amy Buller recounts the hopes and fears of Germans engulfed in the rise of fascism during the 1930s. During the years leading up to the outbreak of war, Buller defied her critics and social norms by leading delegations of British intelligentsia to Germany to learn about and confront the appeal of the Nazis. The audiobook speaks of how Hitler and the Nazis stripped the German people of their freedoms and oppressed them and how young people were swept along with the tide of hate. It tells the stories of the Germans whom Buller met, including their positivity about the forces uniting the country and their terror that Hitler was the man at the helm. Darkness over Germany is Amy Buller´s recollection of these unlikely encounters and her analysis of how national socialism took hold. It tells a remarkable and largely forgotten story of British-German relations in the 1930s. The book speaks resonantly of the need to stay vigilant and maintain dialogue in times of change and discord. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tamsin Greig.
