Download or read book Musik und Revolution written by Barbara Boisits and published by Hollitzer Wissenschaftsverlag. This book was released on 2013-11-22 with total page 672 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Keine Revolution kommt ohne Musik aus, und dennoch wird dieser Zusammenhang selten thematisiert. Das gilt insbesondere für das "tolle Jahr" 1848. Der Bedarf an Revolutionsmusik war groß: jede Kompagnie einer Nationalgarde oder Akademischen Legion wollte ihre eigenen Lieder und Märsche. Diese erklangen bei Aufzügen, Fackelzügen, Fahnenweihen, in den Straßen, auf den Barrikaden, in Konzerten und sogar in den Salons. Auch bekannte Lieder wie das studentische Fuchslied oder die Kaiserhymne wurden in den Dienst der Revolution gestellt. So gut wie alle Komponisten dieser Zeit (darunter auch einige Komponistinnen) beteiligten sich an der Produktion einschlägiger Werke, viele MusikerInnen an deren Ausführung, wenngleich so mancher sich in der nachrevolutionären, neoabsolutistischen Phase wieder davon distanzierte. Auch die Konzert- und Theaterprogramme reagierten musikalisch auf die politischen Ereignisse. Im Zentrum der Untersuchung steht Wien, doch wird der musikalischen Seite der Revolution auch in Graz, Klagenfurt, Triest, Ljubljana, Zagreb, Novi Sad, Budapest, Pressburg, Prag und in Lombardo-Venetien wird nachgegangen.

Download or read book Sport Revolution and the Beijing Olympics written by Grant Jarvie and published by Berg. This book was released on 2008-04-01 with total page 176 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The 2008 Olympic Games will be held in Beijing but many human rights activists support a boycott. They liken the circumstances to previous governments that used the games to glorify their regimes - most notoriously the Nazis in 1936. What has led to this perception and is it fair? Sport, Revolution and the Beijing Olympics is a cultural history of sport in China and challenges many such ingrained Western assumptions. The authors unpick the relationship of sport to imperialism and revolution, and examine its significance in both China and Taiwan at governmental and everyday levels. In the process, they successfully debunk harmful myths, such as the prevalence of drugs in Chinese sport among women athletes, and present a balanced view that is a much-needed corrective to popular understanding.
Download or read book Indigenous Revolution in Ecuador and Bolivia 1990 2005 written by Jeffery M. Paige and published by University of Arizona Press. This book was released on 2020-05-05 with total page 353 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Uprisings by indigenous peoples of Ecuador and Bolivia between 1990 and 2005 overthrew the five-hundred-year-old racial and class order inherited from the Spanish Empire. It started in Ecuador with the Great Indigenous Uprising, which was fought for cultural and economic rights. A few years later massive indigenous mobilizations began in Bolivia, culminating in 2005 with the election of Evo Morales, the first indigenous president. Jeffrey M. Paige, an internationally recognized authority on the sociology of revolutionary movements, interviewed forty-five indigenous leaders who were actively involved in the uprisings. The leaders recount how peaceful protest and electoral democracy paved the path to power. Through the interviews, we learn how new ideologies of indigenous socialism drew on the deep commonalities between the communal dreams of their ancestors and the modern ideology of democratic socialism. This new discourse spoke to the people most oppressed by both withering racism and neoliberal capitalism. Emphasizing mutual respect among ethnic groups (including the dominant Hispanic group), the new revolutionary dynamic proposes a communal worldview similar to but more inclusive than Western socialism because it adds indigenous cultures and nature in a spiritual whole. Although absent in the major revolutions of the past century, the themes of indigenous revolution—democracy, indigeneity, spirituality, community, and ecology—are critically important. Paige’s interviews present the powerful personal experiences and emotional intensity of the revolutionary leadership. They share the stories of mass mobilization, elections, and indigenous socialism that created a new form of twenty-first-century revolution with far-reaching applications beyond the Andes.

Download or read book The Revolution of 1861 written by Andre M. Fleche and published by Univ of North Carolina Press. This book was released on 2012-03-01 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It was no coincidence that the Civil War occurred during an age of violent political upheaval in Europe and the Americas. Grounding the causes and philosophies of the Civil War in an international context, Andre M. Fleche examines how questions of national self-determination, race, class, and labor the world over influenced American interpretations of the strains on the Union and the growing differences between North and South. Setting familiar events in an international context, Fleche enlarges our understanding of nationalism in the nineteenth century, with startling implications for our understanding of the Civil War. Confederates argued that European nationalist movements provided models for their efforts to establish a new nation-state, while Unionists stressed the role of the state in balancing order and liberty in a revolutionary age. Diplomats and politicians used such arguments to explain their causes to thinkers throughout the world. Fleche maintains that the fight over the future of republican government in America was also a battle over the meaning of revolution in the Atlantic world and, as such, can be fully understood only as a part of the world-historical context in which it was fought.
Download or read book The Viennese Revolution of 1848 written by R. John Rath and published by University of Texas Press. This book was released on 2013-12-18 with total page 442 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Liberalism, in the nineteenth-century sense of the term, came to Austria much later than it came to western Europe, for it was not until the 1840s that the industrial revolution reached the Hapsburg Empire, bringing in its train miserable working conditions and economic upheaval, which created bitter resentment among the working classes and a longing for a Utopia that would cure the ills of mankind. This new-found liberalism, largely self-contained and uninfluenced by liberal movements outside the empire, centered mainly in the idea of individual freedom and constitutional monarchism. In the end, the revolution failed because the moderates proved too weak to control the radical excesses, and the radicals in growing desperation tried to turn the rebel idea into a democratic and, at the extreme, a republican one. Fear of this extremism finally drove the moderates into the counterrevolutionary camp. Since the Viennese rebels fought to achieve many of the goals fundamental to democracy, historians have generally tended to idealize the revolutionaries and forget their shortcomings. R. John Rath has sought to evaluate the revolution from the point of view of the political ideologies of 1848 rather than those of the mid-twentieth century. Moreover, he has clearly and objectively stated the case for both the left and the right, pointing out the failures and shortcomings of each. At its publication, this was the first detailed English-language book on the Viennese Revolution of 1848 in more than a hundred years. The author has not confined himself to the bare bones of history. In his descriptions of the times and lively portrayals of the chief actors of the revolution, he has vividly restaged a drama of an ideal that failed.

Download or read book Nationalism and Revolution in Europe 1763 1848 written by Dean Kostantaras and published by Amsterdam University Press. This book was released on 2020-06-05 with total page 274 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book addresses enduring historiographical problems concerning the appearance of the first national movements in Europe and their role in the crises associated with the Age of Revolution. Considerable detail is supplied to the picture of Enlightenment era intellectual and cultural pursuits in which the nation was featured as both an object of theoretical interest and site of practice. In doing so, the work provides a major corrective to depictions of the period characteristic of earlier ventures - including those by authors as notable as Hobsbawm, Gellner, and Anderson -- while offering an advance in narrative coherence by portraying how developments in the sphere of ideas influenced the terms of political debate in France and elsewhere in the years preceding the upheavals of 1789-1815. Subsequent chapters explore the composite nature of the revolutions which followed and the challenges of determining the relative capacity of the three chief sources of contemporary unrest -- constitutional, national, and social -- to inspire extra-legal challenges to the Restoration status quo.
