Ungestempelt und unmarkiert "History-In the creation of a new society, there are always winners and losers. So it was in Australia as it grew through invasion, settlement and development from a colonial outpost to an affluent industrial society. This book tells the history of Australia from the standpoint of those who were dispossessed, the original Australians. Too often, Australian history is recounted as a saga of progress by a developing white nation toward the "bigger and better"; this book sees that process from the other side. It reveals what White Australia lost by its massive and unremitting onslaught on Aboriginal culture and it reveals how Aborigines, in different ways, have attempted to maintain their distinctive identity in the face of hostility, ignorance and exploitation. This is a timely book which provides the historical background to an important and controversial feature of contemporary Australia. "Richard Broome has taught Australian history for ten years at the University of Sydney and La Trobe University (Melbourne), and is currently working on the History of Victoria Project at the University of Melbourne.". This book is intended for students and researchers in race relations, aboriginal studies, anthropology and history."

Bohjalian, Chris A.  Skeletons at the Feast

Zum Vergrößern Bild anklicken

Bohjalian, Chris A. Skeletons at the Feast CROWN PUB INC 2008 Hardcover Capturing both the power and poignancy of romance and the terror and tragedy of war, Bohjalian's latest work puts a moving face on one of the 20th century's greatest tragedies. In his 12th novel, Bohjalian (The Double Bind) paints the brutal landscape of Nazi Germany as German refugees struggle westward ahead of the advancing Russian army. Inspired by the unpublished diary of a Prussian woman who fled west in 1945, the novel exhumes the ruin of spirit, flesh and faith that accompanied thousands of such desperate journeys. Prussian aristocrat Rolf Emmerich and his two elder sons are sent into battle, while his wife flees with their other children and a Scottish POW who has been working on their estate. Before long, they meet up with Uri Singer, a Jewish escapee from an Auschwitz-bound train, who becomes the group's protector. In a parallel story line, hundreds of Jewish women shuffle west on a gruesome death march from a concentration camp. Bohjalian presents the difficulties confronting both sets of travelers with carefully researched detail and an unflinching eye, but he blinks when creating the Emmerichs, painting them as untainted by either their privileged status, their indoctrination by the Nazi Party or their adoration of Hitler. Although most of the characters lack complexity, Bohjalian's well-chosen descriptions capture the anguish of a tragic era and the dehumanizing desolation wrought by war. The perfect novel for a book club...this book sucked me right in. It’s vivid and heart-wrenching. John Searles, The Today Show Reading Bohjalian's descriptions of terror and tragedy on the road has just as much impact as seeing newsreels from the end of World War II....While creating suspense, Bohjalian agilely balances the moral ambiguities of war....Right and wrong shift depending on the situation. Ignorance is tolerated and murder is justified. But Bohjalian does posit that one absolute exists: No one wins at war. Dennis Moore, USA Today Harrowing...ingenious...compelling..Judging who's right or wrong is difficult in Skeletons at the Feast, and one senses that's just the way Bohjalian wants it...A tightly woven, moving story for anyone who thinks there's nothing left to learn, or feel, about the Second World War. That Bohjalian can extract greater truths about faith, hope and compassion from something as mundane as a diary is testament not only to his skill as a writer but also to the enduring ability of well-written war fiction to stir our deepest emotions. Paula L. Woods, The Los Angeles Times Harrowing...Bohjalian spins a suspenseful tale in which the plot triumphs over any single sorrow...[His] sense of character and place, his skillful plotting and his clear grasp of this confusing period of history make for a deeply satisfying novel, one that asks readers to consider, and reconsider, how they would rise to the challenge of terrible deprivation and agonizing moral choices. Margot Livesey, The Washington Post Book World A poignant account of the conflict's last year...Harrowing...In creating the Emmerichs and their relationship to Uri, Bohjalian has given us something new and disturbing. He has also created a wonderful character in the protected child, Theo, whose gradual understanding of what is happening to them is moving and real...Bohjalian has given us an important addition to the story of World War II, and, not at all incidentally, may expand the vision of those who may have avoided 'Holocaust literature' in the past. Roberta Silman, The Boston Globe Rich in character and gorgeous writing.” Jodi Picoult, Real Simple Bohjalian has shown a prodigious gift for exploring how people are transformed.” Entertainment Weekly Chris Bohjalian has done it again! His latest novel, Skeletons at the Feast...is more than well worth the read...Along this journey we not only see the horrors of the war unfold, we see the individuals evolve. The Valley Voice A bittersweet story of romance, war and death, inspired in part by a real diary...Strongly dramatic and full of the heartbreaking horror of war, this novel is Bohjalian at his imaginative best. Carole Godlberg, The Hartford Courant Skeletons at the Feast is a prime example of a well-written historical fiction. Readers will feel the despair experienced by the characters but will be able to find the bit of hope that keeps them moving forward. Bohjalian provides a vivid and well-researched look at the horrors experienced by the characters and presents a more personal account of anguish caused by the events of World War II. Courtney Holschuh, The Huntington, W.V. Herald-Dispatch Intense and fascinating...Bohjalian masterfully presents the desperation of troops who realize their cause is doomed...He successfully captures the humanity of one of the 20th century's most horrendous tragedies. The Rocky Mountain News This story mixes the nail-biting brutality of 'The Kite Runner' with the emotional intimacy of Anne Frank's diary. Austin American-Statesman An extraordinary historical novel based on the exodus of Germans in eastern Germany escaping the Soviet Army's advance in the waning days of World War II...A sense of justice pervades all of [Bohjalian's'] books. He demands that we act humanely toward one another and understand and respect others' beliefs and values. . .Skeletons at the Feast is not a screed on good vs.evil, but it does inspire thought on man's inhumanity to man, and, conversely, how individuals overcome adversity with acts of kindness, civility and integrity. The Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel Riveting...an unforgettable finale...Chris Bohjalian handles the context of this story effortlessly and has created characters so engaging that any reader will find themselves connecting with these very real people...I hail Bohjalian's new novel and its fearless account of one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century. Ray Palen, Bookreporter This is the perfect novel for a book club because there’s so much to discuss. It’s vivid and heart-wrenching. John Searles, Cosmopolitan, on The Today Show, “Top 10 Summer Reads” Nail-biting, heart-ripping...The reader of Skeletons at the Feast is quietly checkmated by Bohjalian into a radical compassion we've heard somewhere before: Love Thy Enemy...I loved this unforgettable novel. Tom Paine, The Burlington Free Press A lush romance, reflecting resilience in the face of nearly certain tragedy....a trenchant epic that is both agonizing and enriching. AirTran Magazine A fictional tale of love, violence and redemption...Bohjalian deftly moves from the journey to the back stories of each character, fleshing out their histories and making their choices more poignant as their friendship and interdependence develop. Who will live and who will die? The author keeps up the suspense until the last page, with a surprise twist at the end. Capital Living Magazine Powerful...Skeletons at the Feast positively resonates with authenticity. I've read several accounts of that small part of World War II, but it took this novel to bring home to me, most clearly and vividly, the dreadful ordeal these people endured...[The Holocaust's] evils are more palpable when its victims come to life-and, in so many cases, death-in the pages of a well-crafted novel. Bohjalian allows the reader to know them and identify with them in a way that no photographs or program on the History Channel can match. A.C. Hutchinson, The Times-Argus Chris Bohjalian has written his finest novel to date, set against the brutal, waning days of World War Two in Eastern Germany....Skeletons at the Feast is Bohjalian's masterpiece. The power of the narrative will stay with the reader long after it is put down. Inspired by an actual World War II diary the author read, it will stand as one of the best novels ever written about one of the most brutal periods in history. Marvin Minkler, The North Star Monthly A deeply moving and engrossing novel...Bohjalian has created a microcosm of that devastating winter of 1945. He makes us care deeply for his characters. His terse, dry prose renders the most appalling atrocities in an almost stoic manner, doubling the emotional impact. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch Immensely readable...Bohjalian takes a fresh perspective and details the brutal realities of World War II in a novel that for once does not focus entirely on the Allies. Recommended for fiction collections. Library Journal “Careful research and an unflinching eye...Bohjalian's well-chosen descriptions capture the anguish of a tragic era and the dehumanizing desolation wrought by war.” Publisher’s Weekly Bohjalian is especially good at conveying the surreal 'beauty,' the misshapen lyricism, of the war-torn landscape: 'Even the stone church had collapsed upon itself…the once imposing pipes of the organ reshaped by heat and flame into giant copper-colored mushrooms.' From harrowing to inspiring. Kirkus Reviews “Bohjalian demonstrates an intricate historical knowledge and impressively illustrates the stark horrors of the time...A compelling read with its mix of history, romance and portrayals of strength in the midst of severe adversity: War really is hell, the book says, but the human spirit is ultimately salvageable.” Rebecca Stropoli, Bookpage ausgemustertes Büchereiexemplar in sehr gutem Zustand!

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has run into serious problems with its first big case - the situation in northern Uganda. Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army has abducted thousands, many of them children, and has systematically tortured, raped, maimed and killed its victims. Nevertheless, the ICC has confronted outright hostility from a wide range of groups, including traditional leaders, the churches and non-governmental organizations. Even the Ugandan government has expressed serious reservations. This book argues that much of the antipathy to the ICC is based upon ignorance and misconception. Drawing on field research in Uganda, it shows that victims are much more interested in punitive international justice than has been suggested, and that the ICC has made resolution of the war more likely.
