Samuel Langhorne Clemens (* 30. November 1835 in Florida, Missouri; + 21. April 1910 in Redding, Connecticut) - besser bekannt unter seinem Pseudonym Mark Twain - war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. Mark Twain ist vor allem als Autor der B�cher �ber die Abenteuer von Tom Sawyer und Huckleberry Finn bekannt. Er war ein Vertreter des amerikanischen Realismus und ist besonders wegen seiner humoristischen, von Lokalkolorit und genauen Beobachtungen des sozialen Verhaltens gepr�gten Erz�hlungen und aufgrund seiner scharfz�ngigen Kritik an der amerikanischen Gesellschaft ber�hmt. Er wurde geboren, als der Halleysche Komet gesichtet wurde, und starb - wie von ihm vorausgesagt - bei der Wiederkunft ebendieses Kometen.Tom Sawyer als Detektiv erschien 1896 und war nach Die Abenteuer des Tom Sawyers (1876), Abenteuer und Fahrten des Huckleberry Finn (1884) sowie Tom Sawyer im Ausland (1894) das vierte Buch �ber den ber�hmten Lausbuben und seinen Freund, den Au�enseiter Huckleberry Finn.Tom und sein Freund Huck erleben ein weiteres gro�es Abenteuer: Wer glaubte auch, dass Juwelendiebe auf alten klapprigen Raddampfern fahren und dass Onkel Silas einen Mord begangen haben soll? Aber Tom und Huck werden den Geheimnissen schon auf die Spur kommen! Ganz so, wie es sich f�r richtige Lausbuben geh�rt.

Analyzing football as a cultural practice, this book investigates the connection between the sport and its built environment. Four thematic sections bring together an international multi-disciplinary range of perspectives with particular focus on the stadium. Examples from architectural design, media studies and archaeology are used while studying advertising, economics, migration, fandom, local identities, emotions, gender, and the sociology of space. Texts and case-studies build up this useful book for lecturers and researchers in sociology, cultural studies, geography, architecture, sport and environment.

Japan in the Fascist Era

In contrast to Euro-centric works on comparative fascism that set Japan apart from Germany and Italy, this book emphasizes parallels between Japan and its Axis Allies. Romantic nationalist ideologies attracted a strong following in all three nations as they emerged as modern states in the late 1800s. In both Germany and Japan these were, from the beginning, strongly racial in nature. Spurred by grievances against the 'status quo' powers, all three took up aggressive policies in the 1930s, producing a short-lived 'fascist era'. Japan's prominent role demands a broader perspective and consideration of 'fascism' as more than a purely European phenomenon.

2008 was the year of the 220th anniversary of permanent white settlement in Australia - a year of celebration, but not for all citizens. The iconography of Australia packaged for the tourist industry is full of Aboriginal motifs, but the ongoing debate about frontier conflict, violence, dispossession and different interpretations of Indigenous rights and history shows the undiminished importance and force of those topics for Australian society. But which literary answers do Aboriginal and white authors give to these issues and in which way do their interpretations differ from the tradition of colonial politics, historiography and anthropology, which has interpreted frontier conflict in terms of stereotypical categorizations of civilization and savagery for nearly two centuries? Nina Liewald explores the potential of contemporary Australian novels to question colonial dichotomies and bridge cultural divides and contextualizes them within a literary and cultural framework. Detailed narratological analyses give an insight into the way colonial stereotypes about religion, sexuality, violence, language and orality are represented, questioned or inverted. The so-called Australian "History Wars" - a fundamental controversy about the interpretation of Australian history and Aboriginal rights that fuelled political debates from Paul Keating to John Howard - serve as an important reference point for the novels under discussion and show the undiminished explosiveness of the topic.
