Few topics in modern history draw the attention that the Holocaust does. The Shoah has become synonymous with unspeakable atrocity and unbearable suffering. Yet it has also been used to teach tolerance, empathy, resistance, and hope. Understanding and Teaching the Holocaust provides a starting point for teachers in many disciplines to illuminate this crucial event in world history for students. Using a vast array of source materials--from literature and film to survivor testimonies and interviews--the contributors demonstrate how to guide students through these sensitive and painful subjects within their specific historical and social contexts. Each chapter provides pedagogical case studies for teaching content such as antisemitism, resistance and rescue, and the postwar lives of displaced persons. It will transform how students learn about the Holocaust and the circumstances surrounding it.

Gründungsmomente dienen der zeitgenössischen politischen Theorie vielfach zur Illustration eines allgemeineren kreativen Moments politischen Handelns. Doch dadurch gerät das Spezifikum dieser historischen Ereignisse aus dem Sichtfeld. In einem Dialog zwischen Leo Strauss, Hannah Arendt und Eric Voegelin schärft dieses Buch den Blick für die Bedeutung politischer Gründungen. Mit ihnen spannt der Autor einen Bogen von der Erfahrungsperspektive der Bürger zu der Beobachterperspektive politischer Theoretiker und rekonstruiert Gründungen als Problem des Verstehens; eine Gründung ist nicht mehr und nicht weniger als das Ergebnis der Bemühungen sie zu verstehen. Aufgrund der dem Verstehensprozess eigenen Dialektik kann die Darstellung der Gründung sich nicht in einer akkuraten Nacherzählung der geschichtlichen Ereignisse erschöpfen. Das vorliegende Buch untersucht, warum und wie das Verstehen einer politischen Gründung sich von dem geschichtlichen Ereignis ablöst, ohne den Bezug zu ihm aufgeben zu müssen.

Building Better Citizens

Educating for citizenship was the original mission of American schools, but for decades that knowledge—also known as civics education—has been in decline, as schools have shifted focus to college and career, STEM, and raising reading and math scores. But over the last few years, spurred on by political polarization and a steep decline in public understanding, civics education is seeing a nation-wide resurgence, as school leaders, educators, and parents recognize the urgency of teaching young people how America works—especially young people who have been marginalized from the political system. But this isn’t your grandmother’s civics. The “new” civics has been updated and re-tooled for the phone-addicted, multi-cultural, globalized twenty-first century kid. From combatting “fake news” with fact checking in Silicon Valley, to reviving elementary school social studies in Nashville, to learning civic activism in Oklahoma City, journalist Holly Korbey documents the grassroots revival happening across the country. Along the way, she provides an essential guidebook for educators, school leaders and caregivers of all types who want to educate a new generation of engaged citizens at a critical time in American democracy.

Dissidence and controversy have been an integral part of the history of psychoanalysis, at times causing pain, disappointment, and shame to its adherents. The seemingly endless dissent has evoked derision and thrown doubt on the validity of the findings of psychoanalysis. Now, for the first time, a number of distinguished psychoanalysts have met to try and understand this phenomenon. This volume, the collected proceedings of a single landmark conference, is a major contribution to the understanding not only of the history and nature of psychoanalysis, but also to the history of the ideas that shaped the twentieth century. essay by Martin S. Bergmann, which brings together the significant ideas of major dissidents in the psychoanalytic movement. Bergmann's discussion of dissidence in a historical sequence results in a panoramic view of the interactions between mainstream psychoanalysis and its discontents that provides a comprehensive look at the movement across several decades. The second part of the book is comprised of written responses to Dr. Bergmann's essay by Andre Green, Otto Kernberg, Anton Kris, Harold Blum, Jill Savage Scharff, Robert Wallerstein, and Elisabeth Young-Bruehl. analysts named above as well as William Grossman, Peter Neubauer, Henry Nunberg, and Mortimer Ostow that touches on such wide-ranging topics as: the reasons for vehement disagreement among psychoanalytic schools, how dissidence should be taught in psychoanalytic training, the question of what is at the heart of psychoanalysis, the libido as pleasure-seeking and object-seeking, the limitations of psychoanalysis, the relationship between psychoanalysis and drug therapy, and psychoanalysis as science and as ideology. This singular volume illuminates issues that are some of the most troublesome and urgent among leading psychoanalysts today.

The Political Thought of America s Founding Feminists

Recovering the powerful and influential contributions of women from the nation’s formative years. The Political Thought of America’s Founding Feminists traces the significance of Frances Wright, Harriet Martineau, Angelina and Sarah Grimké, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Sojourner Truth in shaping American political thinking. These women understood the relationship between sexism, racism, and economic inequality; yet, they are virtually unknown in American political thought because they are considered activists, not theorists. Their efforts to expand the reach of America’s founding ideals laid the groundwork not only for women’s suffrage and the abolition of slavery, but for the broader expansion of civil, political, and human rights that would characterize much of the twentieth century and continues to unfold today. Drawing on a careful reading of speeches, letters and other archival sources, Lisa Pace Vetter shows the ways in which the early women’s rights movement and abolitionism were central to the development of American political thought. The Political Thought of America’s Founding Feminists demonstrates that early American political thought is incomplete without attention to these important female thinkers, and that an understanding of early American women’s movements is incomplete without considering its profound impact on political thought. A complex and thoughtful guide to the indispensable role of women in shaping the American way of life, The Political Thought of America’s Founding Feminists is essential for a comprehensive understanding of the history of American political thought.

This study course was especially designed for those who realize there is something seriously wrong in America today. If the Founding Fathers were here, they would undoubtedly assure us that we can do something about it, and the solution requires three things: 1. An understanding of the Founders’ original success formula, which was based on a free-market economy and a constitutional form of government. 2. A good understanding of what has been happening to the Founders’ success formula since the year 1900. 3. A sincere desire to restore a free-market economy and a constitutional government in the tradition of the Founding Fathers.

Massachusetts Congregationalist Political Thought 1760 1790

Despite the enormous attention scholars have given to the American founding, there continues to be significant debate concerning its meaning. Dale Kuehne asserts that the founding is important not only in the areas of public policy and jurisprudence, but also in our understanding of the American Constitution. In order to convey the full complexity of American political thought during this era, Kuehne provides an exhaustive study of the Massachusetts Congregationalist clergy, one of the founding's most politically influential, but often overlooked, groups. Because Congregationalism was the established religion of the time, the Congregational church functioned as the spiritual and political center of each parish. The Sunday worship services were the primary social activity of the parish and the most effective means of disseminating news and education throughout the colony. The minister was usually the most educated and visible person in the parish and, as such, held a position of considerable influence, which was often used for political purposes. Examining sermons from 1760 to 1790, Kuehne details the transformation of the ministers' thought and provides unique insight into the intellectual and religious roots of the American founding.
