Phuong can wake up in the morning, declare herself hungry, and walk one hundred meters to a freshly cooked bowl of soup or a mini-baguette filled with meat pate and vegetables. Pho and banh mi—we have a choice at least between those two in the space of a two-minute stroll on the street. Phuong will then come home and devour half a kilo of lychees while I eat the leftovers from the night before because she will not touch them. It’s funny that she eats my cooking, because maybe she has to—she is the only Vietnamese woman I ever met who could not and did not want to cook. Then it’s off to town for a com tom for her and a pork baguette roll for me. Then we hit the market. Tonight it will be pork stir-fry with rice, of course. We stock up on fruit as well, and today she insists on buying one of those deadly, spiky, stinky-shoe-shock smelly fruit: a jackfruit or durian. I am not sure which. This is the less smelly one, and I actually enjoy eating it with her. It’s a lesson to Western women to watch these women eat so much food and still remain slim. Then she gathers the seed pods, boils them up, and peels them for me, and I am surprised at how much they taste like chestnuts.

This comprehensive guide is an ideal reference work for film specialists and enthusiasts. First published in 1984 but continuously updated ever since, CineGraph is the most authoritative and comprehensive encyclopedia on German-speaking cinema in the German language. This condensed and substantially revised English-language edition makes this important resource available to students and researchers for the first time outside its German context. It offers a representative historical overview through bio-filmographical entries on the main protagonists, from the beginnings to the present day. Included are directors and actors, writers and cameramen, composers and production designers, film theorists and critics, producers and distributors, inventors and manufacturers. An appendix includes short introductory essays on specific periods and movements, such as Early Film, Weimar, Nazi Cinema, DEFA, New German Cinema, and German film since unification, as well as on cinematic developments in Austria and Switzerland. Sections that crossreference names around specific professional groups and themes will prove equally invaluable to researchers.

Der Sammelband prasentiert Beitrage des internationalen Kongresses Die Neue Judische Schule, der im Mai 2004 an der Universitat Potsdam stattfand und an dem renommierte Wissenschaftler aus Deutschland, Israel, den USA, Russland, Grossbritannien und Schweden teilnahmen. Ihre Arbeiten beruhren verschiedenste Aspekte der Forschung uber dieses Thema. Besonders wichtig war die Klarung der Quellenlage: Die Dokumente der Neuen Judischen Schule sind durch politische Umstande und bewegte Schicksale der Komponisten in der ganzen Welt zerstreut. Bis vor einigen Jahren waren sie aus verschiedenen Grunden oft gar nicht zuganglich, manchmal war nicht einmal der Verbleib der Nachlasse bekannt. Zum Kongress waren Vertreter von vier wichtigen Archiven eingeladen, ihre Vortrage bilden den ersten Teil des Bandes. Die Beitrage des zweiten Teils belegen eindrucksvoll, dass die Neue Judische Schule keineswegs auf Russland beschrankt war, und dass ihr unmittelbarer Einfluss weit in die Nachkriegszeit hinein reichte. Im Mittelpunkt des dritten Teils stehen herausragende Protagonisten der Neuen Judischen Schule. Fur judische Kunstmusik war die osteuropaische judische Musiktradition die wichtigste Inspirationsquelle. Diesem Thema ist der vierte Teil gewidmet. Der letzte, funfte Teil befasst sich mit den aktuellen Entwicklungen auf dem Gebiet judischer Kunstmusik im Zusammenhang mit der Geschichte der Neuen Judischen Schule und ihren Traditionen.
