Glück sei ihm nur beschieden, falls er 'die Welt ins Reine, Wahre, Unveränderliche heben kann' notierte Kafka 1917 in seinem Tagebuch. Auch wenn er selbst sich mit seiner Erzählkunst an diesem Wunsch gescheitert sah - die ungeheure und anhaltende Wirkung seiner Prosa spricht für sich. Diese Ausgabe präsentiert alle zu Lebzeiten erschienenen Erzählungen des weltberühmten Prager Dichters sowie die von Max Brod aus dem Nachlaß herausgegebenen Prosastücke, deren faszinierende poetische Kraft bis heute ungebrochen ist. --anacondaverlag.com

Fresh from reenacting a Civil War battle, Kyle Sherman, dressed in his Union uniform, is lost in Yewville, South Carolina. Dixie Lee Smith knows such a man should be treated as the enemy--shunned, or at the very least ignored. But with no Southern gentlemen pounding down her door, Dixie finds herself wondering if maybe the state of their potential union should be addressed. And once she discovers there's competition for Kyle, this particular rebel belle stops worrying about which side won the war, determined to win the handsome Yankee for herself.
She's got a battle on her hands for sure. Because Kyle himself might not be so easy to subdue!
The mystery of the authorship of the Epistle to the Hebrews has been the subject of end debate. The only comprehensive book on the subject, Priscilla's Letter is a scholarly examination of this puzzling New Testament question. Ruth Hoppin presents a meticulously researched case in support of the theory that Priscilla -- a woman who was a leader in the early church and an associate of Paul -- is ultimately the only suspect who meets all the qualifications for the authorship. Originally published in 1997, Priscilla's Letter disappeared from the market after only five months of promotion and general availability. The author became convinced that her publisher deliberately suppressed the book, presumably under pressure from religious extremists who regard the concept of female authorship of any part of the Bible subversive and intolerable.
Hindutva in India is a chauvinist and majoritarian political ideology that conjures up the image of a peaceful Hindu Self vis-à-vis the threatening minority Other. It is porno-nationalism in its obsessive preoccupation with the predatory sexuality of the putative Muslim figure and the dangers to the integrity of the Hindu bodies. The proponents of Hindutva mobilize and generate negative stereotypes of Islam and putative Muslims to legitimize violence against actual Muslims living in India. Adopting a critical ethnographic approach, this book investigates myriad ways in which the discourses of culture, insecurity, gender, identity, and violence intersect in Hindu nationalism’s reactionary and right-wing politics of fear and imagination.
