This collection of essays by distinguished international scholars from various disciplines addresses the widespread and growing interest in the nature and function of rhetoric, and in the rhetorical analysis of such human sciences as psychology, political science, economics, medicine, and philosophy. The book may be situated with the new studies that show how disciplines have been constructed, legitimated, and institutionalised and, in particular, with those focusing on the material, social and rhetorical practices that have produced disciplinary knowledges and disciplines themselves. While the disciplines often present their knowledge as purely objective, their knowledges are, as the book shows, only available in rhetorical form. Rhetoric is thus not merely a medium through which knowledge is communicated but rather that which is constitutive of knowledge itself.

My Father, Hermann Apelt has two parts. The first part consists of my own memories, written documents of my father such as letters, articles, poems, and newspaper articles about his death. My father wrote and spoke a great deal but never published a book. Others did it for him. His best friend and colleague in the Senate of the city of Bremen, Germany, published Hermann Apelt, Reden und Schriften (speeches and writings) in collaboration with my mother, Julie Apelt, after his death in 1960. The second part consists of translations from this book. My father accomplished much in his life, in his political career as a senator, as one of the saviors of the Bremen ports, as a man of many interests, as a poet, and as a concerned father of four daughters. He traveled much and he admired the United States of America. I wrote this book in order to document the legacy this great German man, my father, has left to all of us.

Alexander von Humboldt explored the Spanish Empire on the verge of its collapse (1799–1804). He is the most significant German travel writer and the most important mediator between Europe and the Americas of the nineteenth century. His works integrated knowledge from two dozen domains. Today, he is at the center of debates on imperial discourse, postcolonialism, and globalization. This collection of fifty essays brings together a range of responses, many presented here for the first time in English. Authors from Schiller, Chateaubriand, Sarmiento, and Nietzsche, to Robert Musil, Kurt Tucholsky, Ernst Bloch, and Alejo Carpentier paint the historical background. Essays by contemporary travel writers and recent critics outline the current controversies on Humboldt. The source materials collected here will be indispensable to scholars of German, French, and Latin and North American literature as well as cultural and postcolonial studies, history, art history, and the history of science.

This book is an invitation to pray without ceasing, morning, noon, and night. Share words of believers talking with their Creator as they eat, as they lie down to sleep, and as they meet together to celebrate joyous occasions. Grown-ups and children talk to God in this set of more than 130 prayers, most from the Mennonite tradition. In the morning, they pray that their work may be useful. At noon, they ask to be spared from soreness or improper feeling. in the evening, they pray for all sorrowful, oppressed, and destitute. Children put their trust in God in thirty prayers taught to them by their parents. In turn, they will teach these verses to their own children. Five of these household prayers are in German. The written prayers address God with the freedom of spontaneous prayer, the way most Mennonites first learned to speak their faith.

Anyone who pays attention to the popular press knows that the new media will soon make books obsolete. But predicting the imminent demise of the book is nothing new. At the beginning of the twentieth century, for example, some critics predicted that the electro-mechanical phonograph would soon make books obsolete. Still, despite the challenges of a century and a half of new media, books remain popular, with Americans purchasing more than eight million books each day. In How Books Came to America, John Hruschka traces the development of the American book trade from the moment of European contact with the Americas, through the growth of regional book trades in the early English colonial cities, to the more or less unified national book trade that emerged after the American Civil War and flourished in the twentieth century. He examines the variety of technological, historical, cultural, political, and personal forces that shaped the American book trade, paying particular attention to the contributions of the German bookseller Frederick Leypoldt and his journal, Publishers Weekly. Unlike many studies of the book business, How Books Came to America is more concerned with business than it is with books. Its focus is on how books are manufactured and sold, rather than how they are written and read. It is, nevertheless, the story of the people who created and influenced the book business in the colonies and the United States. Famous names in the American book trade—Benjamin Franklin, Robert Hoe, the Harpers, Henry Holt, and Melvil Dewey—are joined by more obscure names like Joseph Glover, Conrad Beissel, and the aforementioned Frederick Leypoldt. Together, they made the American book trade the unique commercial institution it is today.
