Wenn eines der wesentlichen Charakteristika des Humanismus der Renaissance ein literarisches Wetteifern mit dem Vorbild der großen antiken Autoren ist, das sich im deutlichen Bewußtsein der zeitlichen Distanz zur Antike vollzieht, so ist die Africa von Francesco Petrarca ein exemplarisches Werk der Epoche. Dieses unvollendete, hier erstmals in deutscher Übersetzung vorliegende Epos in neun Büchern, erzählt in lateinischen Hexametern vom Kampf zwischen Rom und Karthago, zwischen Scipio Africanus und Hannibal im Zweiten Punischen Krieg. Petrarcas hohes Ziel, es Vergils Epos ´´Aeneis´´ gleichzutun, dieses Werk sogar an dichterischem Weltruhm zu übertreffen, steht dabei in Zwiespalt mit dem christlichen Bewusstsein um die prekäre Moral eines Eifers, der sich innerweltliche Grenzen setzt. So zeichnet sich in diesem Epos eine Problematik ab, die für Petrarcas eigenes Werk von zentraler Bedeutung ist und darüber hinaus epochale Relevanz hat.

The Masque of Africa
€ 11.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

´Compelling, insightful, often sombrely beautiful´ Sunday Telegraph Moving beyond travelogue, The Masque of Africa considers the effects of belief (in indigenous animisms, the foreign religions of Christianity and Islam, the cults of leaders and mythical history) upon the progress of African civilization. Beginning in Uganda, at the centre of the continent, Naipaul´s journey takes in Ghana and Nigeria, the Ivory Coast and Gabon, and ends, as the country does, in South Africa. Focusing upon the theme of belief - though sometimes the political or economical realities are so overwhelming that they have to be taken into account - Naipaul examines the fragile but enduring quality of the old world of magic. To witness the ubiquity of such ancient ritual, to be given some idea of its power, was to be taken far back to the beginning of things. To reach that beginning was the purpose of this book. ´Naipaul travels, he asks, he listens attentively and, above all else, he notices, often seeing what others do not or cannot. That acute gift has never left him . . . he is sustained by the old ideal of unadorned truth-telling´ New Statesman ´The quality of Naipaul´s writing - simple, concise, engaging - rarely varies . . . Above all, Naipaul´s latest African journey is eyewitness reporting at its best´ Time

Africa Drawn
€ 32.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Africa a continent of small villages in the jungle and savannah? Certainly not. The urbanisation of the continent is advancing rapidly, while African cities and metropolitan regions are among the fastest growing in the world. ´´Africa Drawn´´ presents one hundred of the most connected and important cities of the continent. A visual feast of three hundred images and masterfully drawn plans illustrates contemporary and historical place-making actions in Africa. The result is simultaneously an artistic and visually fascinating documentation of African urban space and a convincing analysis of its structure and morphology, thus providing a spatial point of departure for all interested parties. The drawings are accompanied by introductory texts and, for the first time, render possible a comparison of the diverse urban form on the continent. The study attempts to provide an indispensable resource of spatial and fi gure ground patterns in the context of urban space in Africa.

Governing Africa
€ 28.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The African Union (AU) is the leading international organization on the African continent. Established in 2001, it consists of fifty-four members, a ten-member Commission, political organs, such as the Assembly, Pan-African Parliament, and a body where civil society groups are represented. The AU seeks the political and socio-economic integration of the African continent and has emerged as a key player in international politics. Since its creation, the AU has tackled a wide range of issues, including health epidemics (Ebola), undemocratic change of governments, gender inequality, wars, poverty and climate change. It has also led military interventions in Burundi, Comoros, Sudan, and Somalia and adopted key legal instruments to prevent transnational terrorism, bad governance, human rights abuses, corruption and promoted economic development. Governing Africa shows how the AU has faced these challenges by providing a comprehensive and critical examination of AU´s performance and role, explaining the innovative and homegrown solutions it has developed in the last decade. Going beyond the traditional security-centric discussion of AU, it analyzes other equally important issues that the AU has dealt with, such as human rights and democracy promotion. For those interested in global studies, the 3D model advanced in this book provides excellent theoretical model for studying IOs anywhere in the world. The first book to deal with the AU as a multi-dimensional, dynamic political organization, Governing Africa takes stock of AU´s successes and failures in its first decade.
