Vormärz Of Germany And The Critique Of Heinrich Heine, Andrew Dean Henley Dec 1997

Vormärz Of Germany And The Critique Of Heinrich Heine, Andrew Dean Henley

Dissertations and Theses

The conclusion of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars marked the beginning of the modem world. In western Europe new ideals about the position of the individual and the future of society flourished in the early nineteenth century--prior to the revolutions of 1848. However, the forward move into the modem world was stymied in the multitude of states which composed Germany after 1815. Due to a combination of factors- political repression, conservative/romantic trends, social lethargy, and liberal immaturity--German society in the period 1815-1848--the Vormärz (pre-March 1848) clung to traditional ways. The most famous German writer of this period ...


The National German-American Alliance, 1901 -1918: Cultural Politics And Ethnicity In Peace And War, Charles Thomas Johnson Dec 1997

The National German-American Alliance, 1901 -1918: Cultural Politics And Ethnicity In Peace And War, Charles Thomas Johnson

Dissertations

The purpose of this dissertation is to tell the story of the National German- American Alliance, an organization of middle to upper-middle class well-educated professionals formed in 1901 to promote and preserve aspects of German culture in the United States. Increasingly, however, it found itself drawn into controversial political and diplomatic issues in the rapid political, social and international change that marked the first two decades of the twentieth century.

The dissertation begins with a review of German-America from colonial times to 1899 and serves as a background for the founding of the Alliance within the context of the growth ...

Swiss American Historical Society Review

Promptly at ten a.m. President Karl J. Niederer called the business meeting to order. He noted that since the Swiss Town House had been sold, this was the first time that we have met in another New York City location. He expressed the thanks of the society to Rosa Schupbach, a member of the Board of Advisors, for having found the location in the Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church and for having so efficiently taken care of the local arrangements. He also acknowledged Richard Frey of the church staff for his help.

The Golden Age Of Roman Helvetia, H. Dwight Page Jun 1997

The Golden Age Of Roman Helvetia, H. Dwight Page

Swiss American Historical Society Review

Any traveller who had visited the region of present day Switzerland in the first century before Christ and who could have returned there three centuries later at the end of the second century of the Christian era would have been astonished by the differences between the two periods. Whereas the pre-Roman country of the Helvetii had been a vast forest whose inhabitants had lived in rudimentary hilltop oppida and had spent their lives hunting, fishing and tilling the soil of small farms, the Roman province of Helvetia in the third century after Christ was a prosperous nation whose citizens lived ...

The Russo-Polish War, 1919-1920: A Bibliography Of Materials In English, John A. Drobnicki

Publications and Research

As World War I came to an end, the borders in Central and Eastern Europe were tenuous, and in some cases non-existent, and several countries came into territorial conflict. The battle between Poland and the Soviet Union was a pivotal event in twentieth century history, as Poland not only dealt the Red Army its first defeat, but also greatly expanded the territory of the fledgling Polish Republic to its historic, pre-partition borders.


From The Printing Press To The Guillotine: Gracchus Babeuf And The Revolutionary Language Of Thermidor, David Brian Audley Mar 1997

From The Printing Press To The Guillotine: Gracchus Babeuf And The Revolutionary Language Of Thermidor, David Brian Audley

Dissertations and Theses

The traditional history of Franc̦ois-Noel 'Gracchus' Babeuf has been centered on politics and socialism. Since his death in 1 797 historians have attempted to show the foundations of nineteenth and twentieth-century social revolution and communism in the polemical works of Babeuf. One result of this method of research has been an assumption of contradiction within Babeuf's writings in the months immediately following the fall of Maxmilien Robespierre. Historians have assumed that the seemingly anti-Robespierrist rhetoric found from September 1794 to February 1795 was both a product and an evidence of the 'Thermidorization' of Babeuf. However, a close textual ...

Thompson Document 16: Letter From Bridget Croft To Henrietta Thompson And Two Selections From Croft's Manuscript, Bridget Croft

Henrietta Thompson Papers

Two selections of the manuscript that Bridget Croft sent to Henrietta Thompson on Feb 16, 1997. The first page describes Croft’s childhood in Ireland. The second selection is Croft’s description of the “allied” retreat from Burma. She describes the “hot and tough” trek by the Stilwell group, quoting sections of Henrietta Thompson’s work, but she also describes the retreat of the British Army. She takes the position that “the retreat [of the British Army] was made more difficult by large numbers of refugees trying to escape from Burma.” She fails to mention that the refugee families fleeing ...


Book Review: Exploring My Life: The Memoirs Of Felix P. Bentz, Chalice Wilkerson Feb 1997

Book Review: Exploring My Life: The Memoirs Of Felix P. Bentz, Chalice Wilkerson

Swiss American Historical Society Review

In his foreword, Felix P. Bentz explains that the impetus for writing his memoirs came from the receipt of a similar effort by a colleague in the oil business. As an international oil geologist, Bentz had the opportunity to realize his dream of traveling the world. Added as a postscript but perhaps more effective as a prologue is his credo written at the age of 30 and the beginning of his career. Bentz states his goal to live a full life roaming the globe and using his gifts to reproduce his thoughts, impressions and experiences while avoiding ignorance, intolerance and ...

Book Review: The New Switzerland Problems And Policies, Nicole Butz

Swiss American Historical Society Review

This volume, edited by Rolf Kieser and Kurt R. Spillmann, consists of twentyeight essays written by a group of Swiss scholars and officials. Originally intended as a new edition of the 1978 volume Modern Switzerland (edited by J. Murray Luck, Lukas F. Burckhardt, and Hans Haug), The New Switzerland nonetheless differs significantly in content and perspective from its earlier counterpart. As noted by the editors in the preface, the book does not attempt to provide its readers with a comprehensive account of Switzerland; rather, it seeks to inform a broad international audience through "a discussion of the present and future ...

Book Review: Eighteenth And Nineteenth Century Accounts Of Swiss Immigrants To The United States., Jeffrey L. Burkhart Feb 1997

Book Review: Eighteenth And Nineteenth Century Accounts Of Swiss Immigrants To The United States., Jeffrey L. Burkhart

Swiss American Historical Society Review

This fascinating anthology of letters written by immigrants to the United States during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries is a thoroughly engrossing text. What emerges from the various groupings of correspondence is a picture of a hum~ odyssey that is often of heroic proportions. The immense courage to uproot oneself and voyage to an unknown and in some instances unfriendly environment is amply demonstrated as one reads through the sixty-three letters that comprise this collection.
