Fremd in ihrem Land

Eine Reise ins Herz der amerikanischen Rechten

In vielen westlichen Ländern sind rechte, nationalistische Bewegungen auf dem Vormarsch. Wie ist es dazu gekommen? Arlie Russell Hochschild reiste ins Herz der amerikanischen Rechten, nach Louisiana, und suchte fünf Jahre lang das Gespräch mit ihren Landsleuten. Sie traf auf frustrierte Menschen, deren "Amerikanischer Traum" geplatzt ist; Menschen, die sich abgehängt fühlen, den Staat hassen und sich der rechtspopulistischen Tea-Party-Bewegung angeschlossen haben. Hochschild zeigt eine beunruhigende Entwicklung auf, die auch in Europa längst begonnen hat. Hochschilds Reportage ist nicht nur eine erhellende Deutung einer gespaltenen Gesellschaft, sondern auch ein bewegendes Stück Literatur. "Jeder, der das moderne Amerika verstehen möchte, sollte dieses faszinierende Buch lesen." Robert Reich "Ein kluges, respektvolles und fesselndes Buch." New York Times Book Review "Eine anrührende, warmherzige und souverän geschriebene, ungemein gut lesbare teilnehmende Beobachtung. ... Wer ihr Buch liest, versteht die Wähler Trumps, weil sie auf Augenhöhe mit ihnen und nicht über sie spricht." FAZ

Insel der Wikinger

Category: Magic

Page: 94

View: 6923

Die erfolgreiche amerikanische Kinderbuchautorin schildert im neuen Band der Reihe 'Das magische Baumhaus' (zuletzt 'Im Schatten des Vulkans' und 'Im Land der Drachen', beide ID 34/02) eine magische Reise des 8jährigen Philipp und seiner 7jährigen Schwester aus den heutigen USA in ein mittelalterliches Kloster in Irland. Die Mönche schreiben u.a. alte irische Sagen auf, von denen die Kinder einen Band mitnehmen und so retten. Nur knapp entkommen die beiden einem Überfall von Wikingerschiffen. Die Geschichte ist mäßig spannend, da der gute Ausgang durch die magische Kräfte der Kinder von Anfang an sicher ist. Der geschichtliche Wissensgewinn ist sehr bescheiden, die Leser weder viel über die mittelalterliche klösterliche Kultur Irlands noch über die Wikinger erfahren und auch dies sind fast ausschließlich recht banale Allgemeinplätze (Das Mittelalter war "dunkel", die Klöster bewahrten die Kultur, die Wikinger waren gefährlich usw.). Die recht klobig wirkenden SchwarzWeißZeichnungen überzeugen ebenfalls nicht. Insgesamt ein überflüssiger Band, dessen Anschaffung nicht empfohlen werden kann. . Philipp und seine Schwester reisen mithilfe des magischen Baumhauses in ein mittelalterliches irisches Kloster, das von Wikingern bedroht wird. Ab 8.
