This volume assembles English translations of three of Wilhelm Raabe's most intriguing narratives. Raabe (1831-1910) was one of the most complex and multilayered German writers of the second half of the nineteenth century. The three pieces published here for the first time in English are: German Moonlight, a tongue-in-cheek study of lunacy and split personality as a quintessentially German condition; Hoxter and Corvey, an unsettling reconstruction of civil unrest and anti-Jewish violence in the seventeenth century which advocates tolerance and sobriety in troubled times; and At the Sign of The Wild Man, an inverted genre piece in which a rural idyll is devastated by an agent of global capitalism."

Wilhelm Raabe (1831-1910) is one of the major figures of 19th-century German Realist writing, acknowledged as an innovator both stylistically and thematically. But until now there has been little concentration on the international and postcolonial dimensions of Raabe's work - his literary critique of colonialism, his engagement with modernization and globalization, his involvement in 19th century German discourses about America, Africa and Asia, and the links between international and national issues in his writing. In Raabe International, contributions from many eminent critics address Raabe both as a writer on world affairs and as a subject himself for translation and comment outside of Germany.

Solongus is a full-length business novel, focused on the on-going automotive industry in the world. Thus, it is not a period novel on ‘Turf Fight of Power.’ But it is an epitome of warlike competition on a global product that is a horseless carriage – automobile. Currently, global automakers such as GM, Ford, Toyota, Volks Wagon, BMW, Benz, Renault, Fiat, Hyundai, Tata, Chinese Big Four, and other dark horses, are fiercely competing for the market share in the world to get the popularity from earthlings as if they were Pretenders to the throne in the world. Right here, their class acts in the borderless battlefield are portrayed art of war in the Heroic Age. In the book series, their versatile strategies and skilled tactics are also revealed under the shiny commercial slogans, of course, with their own chariots.

The Aesthetic and Decadent Movement of the late 19th century spawned the idea of "Art for Art's Sake," challenged aesthetic standards and shocked the bourgeosie. From Walter Pater's study, "The Renaissance to Salome, the truly decadent collaboration between Oscar Wilde and Aubrey Beardsley, Karl Beckson has chosen a full spectrum of works that chronicle the British artistic achievement of the 1890s. In this revised edition of a classic anthology, "The Ballad of Reading Gaol" has been included in its entirety; the bibliography has been completely updated; Professor Beckson's notes and commentary have been expanded from the first edition published in 1966. The so-called Decadent or Aesthetic period remains one of the most interesting in the history of the arts. The poetry and prose of such writers as Yeats, Wilde, Symons, Johnson, Dowson, Barlas, Pater and others are included in this collection, along with sixteen of Aubrey Beardsley's drawings.

The bombing campaign conducted against Germany and German-occupied Europe in the Second World War was, and remains, one of the most controversial operations of the entire war. Much of Bomber Command's effort was what was defined as 'area' bombing, in which whole cities or districts were targeted. The ultimate aim of an attack on a town area, Sir Arthur Harris wrote in one of his despatches, is to break the morale of the population which occupies it ... namely, to produce (i) destruction and (ii) fear of death.This strategy was so successful it almost brought Germany to the point of collapse until Churchill, worried about the devastation it was causing and the number of civilian deaths which resulted, ordered it to cease.Harris' despatches explain in great detail the success of his methods which, if given full reign, may have brought the war to a speedier conclusion but would have meant even more German casualties. Such was the controversy surrounding Bomber Command's operations, Harris' despatches were not published by the government, even though the despatches of every other branch of the armed services, and all of their operations, were made public. The full text of Harris' despatches is reproduced here along with an explanation why these documents were withheld for so many years.
