The Fall 2012 Berlin Journal
The fall 2012 Berlin Journal ist da! Featuring a new Chekhov translation by Peter Constantine; the New Yorker's Joan Acocella on the Dracula legend; Hans R. Vaget describes the relationship between the exiled Thomas Mann and his American hero, FDR; John Burnside scrutinizes German environmental policy; Kelly Gallagher examines the globalization of clearn energy technologies -- particularly in China; Martin K. Dimitrov compares dictatorships in 1989 and 2011; Kim Lane Scheppele outlines how measures taken after 9/11 pose a threat to international law; Saba Mahmood explains how a theory of minority rights and geopolitics can help us understand contemporary Egypt; and Celina Su reflects upon her decade-long work with Burmese refugees on the Thai border. All of this, plus news and updates from the Hans Arnhold Center, and a smattering of extraordinary contemporary images from the likes of Emily Hass, Frederike Gross, Shiva Ahmadi, Edward Burtynsky, Ante Timmermans, Michelle Stuart, and, a little less contemporary, Albrecht Dürer.
