A Good American

Taschenbuch Gebraucht - Sehr gut Leichte Lagerspuren - 'A beautifully written novel, laced with history and music.' -Emily St. John Mandel, author of Station Eleven A LIBRARY JOURNAL BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR A BOOKPAGE BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR Everything he'd seen had been unimaginably different from the dry, dour streets of home, and to his surprise he was not sorry in the slightest. He was smitten by the beguiling otherness of it all. And so began my grandfather's rapturous love affair with America-an affair that would continue until the day he died. This is the story of the Meisenheimer family, told by James, a third-generation American living in Beatrice, Missouri. It's where his German grandparents-Frederick and Jette-found themselves after journeying across the turbulent Atlantic, fording the flood-swollen Mississippi, and being brought to a sudden halt by the broken water of the pregnant Jette. A Good American tells of Jette's dogged determination to feed a town sauerkraut and soul food the loves and losses of her children, Joseph and Rosa and the precocious voices of James and his brothers, sometimes raised in discord...sometimes in perfect harmony. But above all, A Good American is about the music in Frederick's heart, a song that began as an aria, was jazzed by ragtime, and became an anthem of love for his adopted country that the family still hears to this day.

Transatlantic Discord. Combating Terrorism and Proliferation, Preventing Crises

Verlag
Nomos

Taschenbuch Gebraucht - Sehr gut Leichte Lagerspuren - At the beginning of the 21st century it has become increasingly evident that the transatlantic relationship, which had been held together by the Soviet threat for almost five decades, is charac-terized by dissent rather than harmony. Tensions in the post-Cold War era eventually reached a climax in the run-up to the intervention in Iraq, when France and Germany opposed to join forces with the coalition of the willing, and Donald Rumsfeld coined the division between old and new Europe.Focusing on the combat against terrorism, the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, and crisis prevention, this anthology addresses three fields of security and defense policy which have had a considerable impact on the relationship between the USA and Europe. The authors of this anthology analyze US and European perspectives on threats and the development of respective countermeasures. In addition to these fundamental aspects, the analysis also covers contemporary challenges such as the Iranian nuclear program and their impact on US-European relations.
