Die kulturwissenschaftliche Forschung hat in den letzten Jahren das Ende des Ersten Weltkrieges als Epochenschwelle, als gewaltigen "Einhieb von 1918", der eine prinzipielle "Veranderung im Grundgeflechte" (Heimito von Doderer) Osterreichs bewirken sollte, verstarkt in ihren analytischen Blick genommen. Der Sammelband enthalt die Vortrage einer interdisziplinaren Konferenz, die zu diesem vielfaltigen Thema im Fruhjahr 2008 von den germanistischen Seminaren der Universitat Salzburg und der University of California (UCLA) gemeinsam in Los Angeles abgehalten wurde. Die zehn im vorliegenden Band abgedruckten Vortrage der Konferenzteilnehmer aus Osterreich und den USA spannen einen weiten thematischen Bogen und sind unterschiedlichen Methodologien verpflichtet. Die Bewaltigung des Traumas von Niederlage und Zerschlagung des Habsburgerreiches wird sowohl aus historiografischer als auch literatur-, theater- und filmwissenschaftlicher Perspektive beleuchtet.

The Cold War gets magical when spies brush shoulders with sorcerers in this genre-defying serial created by Lindsay Smith and Max Gladstone. This is the 9th episode in the second season of The Witch Who Came In From The Cold, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Ian Tregillis. As the smoke slowly dissipates from the explosive dockside firefight, Edith and Josh seeks answers and explanations. With the Ice on their heels, Terzian turns the Flames attention to a new target. Van and Nadia cross words, and truths. Tanya plays a player. Welcome to Prague, 1970: the epicenter in a Cold War of spies and sorcerers. The streets are a deadly chessboard on which the CIA and KGB make their moves, little dreaming that a deeper game is being played between the Consortium of Ice and the Acolytes of Flame, ancient factions of sorcery. Praise for The Witch Who Came in from the Cold: "Those who like to mix magic, spycraft, and secret history should enjoy this—it may please fans of Stross’s Laundry series." —Locus Magazine "Full of fast-paced, high-intensity action paired with magic at a level that has not been seen until now, with a cliff-hanger that lets readers know that the game is not over and has only just begun." —The San Francisco Book Review "The Witch Who Came in from the Cold is a chilly evocation of a different kind of Cold War." —Charles Stross, author of the Laundry Files series “Take a double shot of Le Carré, a dash of Deighton, a twist of Quiller, a splash of Al Stewart’s The Year of the Cat, throw in a jigger full of elemental magic, mix well ... and voilà! The Witch Who Came In From The Cold.” —Victor Milán, author of The Dinosaur Lords "The occult love child of John le Carre and The Sandbaggers." —Marie Brennan, author of A Natural History of Dragons "As soon as I saw that, I was instantly hooked, and the pilot jacked the intrigue to the max. Two female Soviet spy witches, an American spy with something weird drilling magical holes in his head, and a world of secrets within secrets in a locale where old-world myth and the Cold War face off, pedal to the metal . . . it’s awesome. Or as we said in 1970, Far out. " —Sherwood Smith, author of Crown Duel "The installments are easy to read one at a time, but the tangles of alliances, secrets, and shocking double-crosses will have readers up all night mumbling, “Just one more.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

In a decade, between 1940 and 1950, the old world order collapsed, and a new one was created. Old European empires - France, Germany and the United Kingdom - receded, replaced by two new superpowers - the Soviet Union and the United States. Beyond Europe, a swath of new countries was created: India, Communist China, Israel and the modern Arab states, Indonesia, the Koreas. But there were darker shadows too, cast by the onset of the Cold War: the failure to establish international controls on atomic energy, or the growth of the national security state and modern intelligence apparatus. This era also produced some of the most remarkable statesmen of modern times, including leaders such as Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin, Truman, de Gaulle, Nehru and Mao Tsetung; diplomats like George Marshall, Dean Acheson, Anthony Eden, Ernest Bevin and Robert Schuman; and international fixers, such as Averell Harriman, John Maynard Keynes, or Jean Monnet. Their stories form the core fabric of this book. Richard Crowder examines their shared ambition to rebuild the world, and launch a second age of globalization.
