Imagining Prostitution in Modern Japan, 1850–1913 - PDF
نویسندگان: Ann Marie L. Davis خلاصه: 1 O ne Introduction On a mid-winter morning, some months after the death of the Meiji Em- peror on July 30, 1912, daily newspapers across Japan informed the na- tion that an “unprecedented manuscript,” written by a prostitute under the pseudonym Wada Yoshiko, was arriving at bookstores everywhere. It was called Yūjo monogatari (A Prostitute’s Tale) and was published by Bunmeidō Press.1 The news of Wada’s accomplishment was so wide- spread that for the rest of the week, it attracted an unusual procession of visitors to her pleasure quarters in Naitō-Shinjuku, a famous commuter town located on the outskirts of Tokyo. Journalists lined up to interview her, current patrons came to congratulate her, and new potential clients showed up to set eyes on her.2 In her sequel, Yūjo monogatari, zoku-hen (A Prostitute’s Tale, Part II), published less than a year after the first book, Wada describes this mo- ment as a set of mixed blessings (see figure 1.1). At first, she encountered unrelenting scorn and criticism from her immediate circle of managers, colleagues, and patrons. After the book was released, the madam of the brothel harshly condemned her for divulging private information about their clients. Her book revealed unsavory details about the conditions of the syphilis hospital where the prostitutes went for regular mandatory health exams and were confined if found diseased. Given her negative exposé, the director of the hospital came to the brothel to denounce Wada for staining his good reputation. Although Wada was careful not to reveal any names, she had disclosed job titles, and therefore, the madam rea- soned, anyone could identify the director or other brothel affiliates men- tioned in her book. In response, the madam demanded that Wada issue an immediate apology and retract some of the sections of her publication. Prostitutes in the brothel shunned Wada, too, for sharing details about their district clients and destroying their mutual trust.

نویسندگان: Jörg Später خلاصه: Initiativen zur Reduzierung der nuklearen Bedrohung hatte es seit Be- ginn des Kalten Krieges immer wieder gegeben. Die USA hatten bereits 1946 unter dem Eindruck der Atombombenabwürfe über Hiroshima und Nagasaki den Baruch-Plan vorgelegt. Er sah die Errichtung einer internationalen Körperschaft vor, der ein globales Monopol für die militärische Nutzung der Atomkraft zukommen sollte. Dieses Konzept einer vollständigen nuklearen Abrüstung scheiterte am Widerstand der Sowjetunion, die zu diesem Zeitpunkt den USA nukleartechnisch unter- legen und deshalb nicht bereit war, eine Vereinbarung zu schließen, die das US -amerikanische Atomwaffenmonopol auf Jahre hin festgeschrie- ben hätte.1 Mit ihrem ersten erfolgreichen Atomwaffentest brach die Sowjetunion 1949 schließlich dieses amerikanische Monopol.2 Während der 1950er Jahre begann auch sie stärkeres Gewicht auf Atomwaffen und ballistische Raketen zu legen

Hans Kelsen Biographie eines Rechtswissenschaftlers by Mohr Siebeck - Original PDF
نویسندگان: Mohr Siebeck خلاصه: Im August 1964 trat der deutsch-amerikanische Politikwissenschaftler Hans Mor- genthau an die Rockefeller Foundation mit der Idee heran, der weltberühmte Jurist Hans Kelsen solle an den Comer See nach Italien fahren, wo die Foundation noch heute die Villa Serbelloni besitzt, und dort »an intellectual history of his life and times« verfassen. Die Rockefeller Foundation war allerdings skeptisch, ob der bereits 83-jährige Gelehrte, der zu jener Zeit in Berkeley in Kalifornien lebte, überhaupt noch im Stande sei, nach Europa zu reisen und eine derartige Arbeit zu schreiben. 1 Morgenthau meinte hierauf, dass die Biographie ja auch in Berkeley verfasst werden und man Kelsen eine Sekretärin beistellen könne, wofür er Helen Smelser, die Frau des in Berkeley unterrichtenden Soziologieprofessors Neil Smelser vorschlug, zumal diese schon früher mit Kelsen zusammengearbeitet hatte. Tatsächlich gewährte die Rockefeller Foundation in der Folge einen Grant in Höhe von $ 3.500,–, sodass die Arbeiten beginnen konnten.

Darwin and Catholicism BY Caruana - Original PDF
نویسندگان: Louis Caruana خلاصه: Charles Darwin (1809–82) explained the history and variety of life on earth in terms of evolution. He formulated his ideas for the first time in his book On the Origin of Species, published in 1859. His theory brought together under one explanation the innumerable different phe- nomena observable in the organic world, and suggested moreover that the difference between humans and non-human animals was a difference in degree rather than one of kind.1 Because of this, philosophical and theological debates soon became inevitable. What had been formulated as a new scientific theory quickly developed into a new philosophical and cultural paradigm with repercussions in ethics, anthropology and theology.
