Now Book Description:

Since the start of the Romantic era, painting has been regarded as the leading artistic discipline in Germany. To this day, the nation of "Painter Princes" continues to promote the development of the art of painting and enjoys a worldwide reputation with artists like Gerhard Richter, Katharina Grosse, Neo Rauch and Albert Oehlen. Here we encounter a survey of 53 young artists, in particular from the surrounding of the academies in Berlin, Dresden, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Karlsruhe, Leipzig, Munich and Stuttgart. The next generation of important painters is presented with several works, opulent illustrations and statements by artists and experts from the contemporary painting scene in Germany. This publication, and simultaneous exhibitions in Bonn, Wiesbaden and Chemnitz, and subsequently in Hamburg, demonstrate the diversity and qualityof their work.

The Party of Democratic Socialism in Germany Book Description:

The Party of Democratic Socialism in Germany, which includes the papers from the first conference on the PDS in Britain, brings together a range of scholars and politicians from Germany, Britain, France and the USA. It assesses the present position of the party within the German political system shortly before the second Superwahljahr' in Germany. It also examines its relations with other post-communist parties in Europe and evaluates the state of its relations with the other political parties competing for the left-of-centre vote in the new Lander. Above all the volume is concerned with the question as to whether the PDS, as the successor party to the former ruling communist party in East Germany, represents a modern form of socialism or is merely a populist reaction to the particular concerns of eastern Germans after unification. The volume will be of particular interest to students and scholars of German and politics who are concerned with developments in Germany and Europe after the collapse of communism. There are twelve contributions to the volume, six in German and six in English."
