The Long and Winding Road from Blake to the Beatles by Matthew Schneider

The Long and Winding Road from Blake to the Beatles (Nineteenth-Century Major Lives and Letters) by Matthew Schneider
Palgrave Macmillan | June 24, 2008 | English | ISBN: 1403984891 | 241 pages | PDF | 1 MB

The story of the Beatles begins not with the rock-'n’-roll revolution of the 1950s, but in the Romantic revolution of the 1790s, when age-old notions about literature, politics, education, and social relations changed forever. Tracing the Beatles to their late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century poetic, musical, and philosophic roots, The Long and Winding Road from Blake to the Beatles weaves literary criticism and cultural analysis together to how the Fab Four—in their songs, personalities, and relations with each other—mirror the themes and history of Anglo-American Romanticism.
Poland's Threatening Other: The Image of the Jew from 1880 to the Present

Poland's Threatening Other: The Image of the Jew from 1880 to the Present
Publisher: University of Nebraska Press | ISBN: 0803220790 | edition 2008 | PDF | 388 pages | 1,6 mb

In this provocative and insightful book, Joanna Beata Michlic interrogates the myth of the Jew as Poland's foremost internal “threatening other,” harmful to Poland, its people, and to all aspects of its national life. This is the first attempt to chart new theoretical directions in the study of Polish-Jewish relations in the wake of the controversy over Jan Gross’s book Neighbors. Michlic analyzes the nature and impact of anti-Jewish prejudices on modern Polish society and culture, tracing the history of the concept of the Jew as the threatening other and its role in the formation and development of modern Polish national identity based on the matrix of exclusivist ethnic nationalism.
In the late nineteenth century and throughout the greater part of the twentieth, exclusivist ethnic nationalism predominated over inclusive civic nationalism in Polish political culture and society. Only in the aftermath of the political transformation of 1989 has Polish civic nationalism gradually gained predominance. As civic nationalism has become more assertive, Polish scholars have begun to unearth and critically examine the legacies of Polish anti-Semitism and other anti-minority prejudices. Michlic conducted extensive research in Polish, British, and Israeli archives for this book. Poland’s Threatening Other contributes to modern Jewish and Polish history, the study of nationalism, and to a new school of critical inquiry into the nature of anti-Jewish prejudices.
