Die Legende von Sleepy Hollow

Author: Washington Irving
Publisher: BoD – Books on Demand
ISBN: 9783842345553
Release Date: 2018-04-30
Genre: Fiction

Irvings Geschichte vom kopflosen Reitergespenst, die er 1820 veröffentlichte, gehört in den Vereinigten Staaten zu den bekanntesten literarischen Stoffen. Wer sich für die US-amerikanische Kultur interessiert und gleichzeitig eine vergnügliche Lektüre sucht, kommt an "Sleepy Hollow"nicht vorbei. Der Verdienst, diese Geschichte auch deutschen Lesern erschlossen zu haben, gebührt zweifellos Adolf Strodtmann, der diese und weitere englischsprachigen Erzählungen im 19. Jahrhundert übersetzt hat. Allerdings ist diese Übertragung für heutige Leser streckenweise kaum noch verständlich, was die Freude, sich mit der Geschichte zu beschäftigen, deutlich trübt. Dieser Band enthält daher eine aktuelle Übersetzung, die exklusiv für ofd edition erstellt wurde.

The Jim Crow Encyclopedia Greenwood Milestones in African American History 2 volumes

Author: Nikki L. M. Brown
Publisher: ABC-CLIO
ISBN: 9780313341823
Release Date: 2008-09-30
Genre: Social Science

Jim Crow refers to a set of laws in many states, predominantly in the South, after the end of Reconstruction in 1877 that severely restricted the rights and privileges of African Americans. As a caste system of enormous social and economic magnitude, the institutionalization of Jim Crow was the most significant element in African American life until the 1960s Civil Rights Movement led to its dismantling. Racial segregation, as well as responses to it and resistance against it, dominated the African American consciousness and continued to oppress African Americans and other minorities, while engendering some of the most important African American contributions to society. This major encyclopedia is the first devoted to the Jim Crow era. The era is encapsulated through more than 275 essay entries on such areas as law, media, business, politics, employment, religion, education, people, events, culture, the arts, protest, the military, class, housing, sports, and violence as well as through accompanying key primary documents excerpted as side bars. This set will serve as an invaluable, definitive resource for student research and general knowledge. The authoritative entries are written by a host of historians with expertise in the Jim Crow era. The quality content comes in an easy-to-access format. Readers can quickly find topics of interest, with alphabetical and topical lists of entries in the frontmatter, along with cross-references to related entries per entry. Further reading is provided per entry. Dynamic sidebars throughout give added insight into the topics. A chronology, selected bibliography, and photos round out the coverage. Sample entries include Advertising, Affirmative Action, Armed Forces, Black Cabinet, Blues, Brooklyn Dodgers, Bolling v. Sharpe, Confederate Flag, Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), Detroit Race Riot 1943, Ralph Ellison, Eyes on the Prize, G.I. Bill, Healthcare, Homosexuality, Intelligence Testing, Japanese Internment, Liberia, Minstrelsy, Nadir of the Negro, Poll Taxes, Rhythm and Blues, Rural Segregation, Sharecropping, Sundown Towns, Booker T.
