Bring Me Men: Military Masculinity and the Benign Façade of American Empire, 1898-2001 (Columbia/Hurst)

Aaron Belkin

Best price for this book: $ 180.66

Buy

The masculinity of those who serve in the American military would seem to beindisputable, yet it is full of contradictions. To become a warrior, one must renouncethose things in life that are perceived to be unmasculine. Yet at the same time, themilitary has encouraged and even mandated warriors to do exactly the opposite.

Bring Me Men explores these contradictions in great detail and shows that theirinvisibility has been central to the concealment of American empire's darkest secrets.By examining case studies that expose these contradictions -- the phenomenon of maleon-male rape at the U.S. Naval Academy, for example, as well as historical and contemporaryattitudes toward cleanliness and filth -- Belkin utterly upends our understanding of the relationship between warrior masculinity, American empire and the fragile processes sustaining it.

Ecological Thought in German Literature and Culture (Ecocritical Theory and Practice)

Best price for this book: $ 128.99

Buy
The volume offers a survey of the contribution of German literature and culture to the evolution of ecological thought. As the field of ecocritical theory and practice is rapidly expanding towards transnational and global dimensions, it seems nevertheless necessary to consider the distinct manifestations of ecological thought in various cultures. In this sense, the volume demonstrates in twenty-six essays from different disciplines how German literature, philosophy, art, and science have contributed in unique ways to the emergence of ecological thought on national and transnational scale. The volume maps the most important and characteristic of these developments both on a theoretical and on a textual-analytical level. It is structured in five parts ranging from proto-ecological thought since early modern times (part I) to major theoretical approaches (part II), environmental history (part III), and ecocritical case studies (part IV), to ecological visions in different media and art forms (part V).

The four editors have widely published and are actively involved in ecocritical literary and cultural studies. The group of editors consists of two scholars of German literature and cultural studies, Gabriele Duerbeck and Urte Stobbe (both University of Vechta), a scholar in German and comparative literature, Evi Zemanek (University of Freiburg), as well as a scholar of Anglo-American ecoliterature and ecocriticism, Hubert Zapf. All of them are involved in various projects and research networks on ecology and literature. The contributors of the individual chapters likewise are all experts in their respective fields, ranging from German literature, history, environmental studies, art history, music and art. The book is a unique and readily accessible collection of essays that is of relevance not only for a German and continental European but for a worldwide audience.
