Es gibt keinen eleganten Krieg, das erfahren Journalisten, die vor Ort vom Krisenherd berichten, täglich. Vor allem Pressereporter müssen versuchen, hinter die schmutzigen Kulissen zu blicken und vom Konflikt aus erster Hand zu berichten. Dabei wird der romantische Mythos des publizierenden Kriegshelden entzaubert: Realjournalismus findet unter härtesten Arbeitsbedingungen und in einer absoluten Ausnahmesituation statt.

The Last Days of Mankind

Author: Karl Kraus
ISBN: 9492027038
Release Date: 2016-02-11

Intended 'for a theatre on Mars', with a cast of nearly 500 and running to over 200 scenes, Karl Kraus's apocalyptic tragedy The Last Days of Mankind is the longest, most elaborate play ever written. It is also a bitingly satirical commentary on the outbreak and subsequent course of World War I. Kraus (1874-1936) ranks as one of the greatest twentieth-century satirists. In 1899 he established his own journal, Die Fackel (The Torch), to 'drain the marsh of empty phrase-making.' His work comprises essays, short stories, poetry and aphorisms, and culminated in the five-act play presented here. First published in 1920, The Last Days employs a collage of modernist techniques to evoke a despairing and darkly comical vision of the Great War from the perspective of the author's hometown, Vienna. At its centre, Kraus places a cabal of war-mongering press barons and self-serving hacks, whose strategies of mass manipulation he holds responsible for the very atrocities they report. With this translation of the play in its entirety, Patrick Healy completes the work begun in 2014 when he published the first ever English-language version of the Prologue and Act I in In These Great Times, a selected anthology of Kraus's work. This edition features an introduction and a glossary of relevant names and terms. About the translator Patrick Healy is a philosopher, writer and senior lecturer at the Technical University Delft. He lives in Amsterdam. His earlier translations include Karl Kraus, In These Great Times: Selected Writings and Carl Einstein's Negro Sculpture. In the spring of 2016 his translation of Max Raphael's early critical writings will appear as The Invention of Expressionism. For more information, visit

What are the influences on war correspondents as they report on events in war-torn countries?

By looking at how new stories are actually produced, the author highlights the elusiveness of the goal of "objective" journalism and illustrates how the biases of war correspondents are constrained by the powers of government and how these biases are translated into actual journalistic practices.
