From Thomas Jefferson to John Rawls, justice has been at the center of America's self-image and national creed. At the same time, for many of its peoples-from African slaves and European immigrants to women and the poor-the American experience has been defined by injustice: oppression, disenfranchisement, violence, and prejudice. In Identity and the Failure of America, "John Michael explores the contradictions between a mythic national identity promising justice to all and the realities of a divided, hierarchical, and frequently iniquitous history and social order. Through a series of insightful readings, Michael analyzes such cultural moments as the epic dramatization of the tension between individual ambition and communal complicity in Moby-Dick, "attempts to effect social change through sympathy in the novels of Lydia Marie Child and Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ralph Waldo Emerson's antislavery activism and Frederick Douglass's long fight for racial equity, and the divisive figures of John Brown and Nat Turner in American letters and memory. Focusing on exemplary instances when the nature of the United States as an essentially conflicted nation turned to force, Michael ultimately posits the development of a more cosmopolitan American identity, one that is more fully and justly imagined in response to the nation's ethical failings at home and abroad. John Michael is professor of English and of visual and cultural studies at the University of Rochester. He is the author of Anxious Intellects: Academic Professionals, Public Intellectuals, and Enlightenment Values and Emerson "and Skepticism: The Cipher of the World."

In seiner unvollendeten Novelle aus dem Jahre 1895 schafft der englische Zeichner und Dichter Aubrey Beardsley eine erotische Phantasie, in deren Mittelpunkt die Legende von Tannhäuser und Venus steht. Seinerzeit von vielen Kritikern als frivoler Ausbruch der Dekadenz abgelehnt, gilt Beardsleys Werk heute als Beispiel für die reiche Erzählkunst des Fin de sicècle.

Doctor Faustus is a classic; its imaginative boldness and vertiginous ironies have fascinated readers and playgoers alike. But the fact that this play exists in two early versions, printed in 1604 and 1616, has posed formidable problems for critics. How much of either version was written by Marlowe, and which is the more authentic? Is the play orthodox or radically interrogative? Michael Keefer's early work helped to establish the current consensus that the 1604 text was censored and revised; the first Broadview edition, praised for its lucid introduction and scholarship, was the first to restore two displaced scenes to their correct place. All competing editions presume that the 1604 text was printed from authorial manuscript, and that the 1616 text is of little substantive value. But in 2006 Keefer's fresh analysis of the evidence showed that the 1604 quarto's Marlovian scenes were printed from a corrupted manuscript, and that the 1616 quarto (though indeed censored and revised) preserves some readings earlier than those of the 1604 text. This revised and updated Broadview edition offers the best available text of Doctor Faustus in an attractive hardcover binding. Keefer's critical introduction reconstructs the ideological contexts that shaped and deformed the play, and the text is accompanied by textual and explanatory notes and excerpts from sources

Dieses umfassende Lehrbuch für Studenten und Dozenten der Neurobiologie sowie an der Hirnforschung Interessierter aus Medizin und Psychologie ist die erste integrierende Darstellung der modernen Neurowissenschaften. Zahlreiche Disziplinen versuchen gemeinsam, menschliches Denken und Verhalten sowie deren Störungen auf biologische Strukturen und Vorgänge bzw. ihre Veränderung zurückzuführen. Der 'Kandel/Schwartz/Jessell' setzt nur (Oberstufen-)Schulwissen voraus und entwickelt aus der umfassenden Präsentation der molekularen und zellulären Grundeinheiten und -funktionen des Nervensystems geschickt das Verständnis von Wahrnehmungsprozessen, der Bewegungssteuerung und schließlich der höhreren geistigen Hirnleistungen wie Sprache, Lernen und Gedächtnis. Um das von Studierenden nachgefragte Buch auch weiterhin lieferbar halten zu können, wurde es schwarzweiß gedruckt.
