READING: In Munich 1942-43, handbills appeared-some in mailboxes-some left secretly on parked cars-others still, surfaced in city phone booths. The words condemned Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime and called Germans to passive resistance. The message, penned and distributed by a handful of student-soldiers and other youthful associates who had come of age during the twelve-year catastrophe of the Third Reich, hoped to stir the conscience of a nation. The regime had tempted them with promises of power and prosperity. In time, the youths made their way through a labyrinth of propaganda, confusion, and personal conflict, arriving at the threshold of their own inner convictions-a passage bringing them to a destination called the White Rose. Among the recipients of the Leaflets of the White Rose were teachers the group hoped would spread the call to resistance. A university professor accepted their challenge. Sixty years later, an American teacher felt compelled to learn and follow the story, not knowing when she began, that it would lead her to the spirit of the White Rose that lives yet today. Along with three fellow educators, Ruth traveled to Germany to dialogue with schools now named for members of the White Rose. On a quiet country lane or a busy city street, teachers toil daily, urging students to think critically, stay informed, and develop skills that will nurture and renew the freedoms the White Rose could only imagine. Journey to the White Rose in Germany is an invitation to encounter a past that inspires the present and the future. Ruth Bernadette Melon recently celebrated more than three decades as a New Jersey middle school educator. During her tenure, she taught Humanities, World Cultures, and writing. Now enjoying the "writing life," she considers herself a life-long learner. Having received a BA in English from Rutgers University and an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from Goucher College in Maryland, she is currently a candidate for a D.Litt degree with a concentration in writing. Ruth was named a 2003 Morris County Teacher Fellow by the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation. Ruth lives with her husband Ira in New Jersey and enjoys the frequent company of her children and the larger family circle.

READING: Celebrating what is heralded as the most beautiful city in Germany, this guide captures the unique charm, warm character, and Mediterranean “joie de vivre” of Munich, gracefully counterbalancing the bustling industry of its international businesses. Delving into its place in the heart of Europe, this travel companion shows how the metropolis has been the focal point of Bavaria and beyond ever since its modest beginnings in the 12th century. The city’s role as a major center of the arts and sciences throughout its history is explored, and the current collections at the three Pinakothek galleries are investigated, spanning eight centuries of artistic activity right up to the present day. The Deutsches Museum, one of the best museums of its kind in the world, is also showcased along with its successful hands-on approach to science and technology that has been attracting visitors for more than a century. Famous buildings, priceless art treasures, and an array of magnificent museums are offered as well as details on local festivals, from the Hofbräuhaus to the annual Oktoberfest, the latter of which has made the city the world capital of beer and famous across the globe. The natives’ pride and pleasure in their traditional cuisine is hailed along with the importance they place upon their culture, upholding ancient customs, and enthusiastically embracing new ideas. Beautifully photographed, this handbook displays the Bavariac capital in its full diversity, commenting on the man behind the famous Englischer Garten, Count Rumford, and the Bohemia of Schwabing at the turn of the 19th century.

READING: Journey to the Awakened Heart follows Robert Jacobs’ travels through Europe, Africa, and Asia in the 1970s as he evolves from a free-spirited, hippie wanderer into a sincere spiritual seeker. Fueled by his desire to become a monk, Jacobs spends fifteen years living in yoga and meditation ashrams under the guidance of his spiritual teachers. While in high school, he began questioning whether God existed and wondered what the purpose of his life was. Later in college, he experienced an emptiness at the core of his being that made his life seem meaningless. Little did he know that this emptiness was close to a deeper inner spaciousness that would leave him feeling profoundly fulfilled. In this detailed and far-reaching memoir, Jacobs shares how his extensive journey eventually brings him on a path he never imagined. He grapples with the forces of fear and of faith and sees, again and again, his experiences reflected back to him as abundance and grace. Ultimately, Jacobs’ seeking brings him to the understanding that God, guru, and self are one and that his true calling has always been to simply love and serve.

READING: These fascinating, never-before-published early diaries of Count Harry Kessler—patron, museum director, publisher, cultural critic, soldier, secret agent, and diplomat—present a sweeping panorama of the arts and politics of Belle Époque Europe, a glittering world poised to be changed irrevocably by the Great War. Kessler’s immersion in the new art and literature of Paris, London, and Berlin unfolds in the first part of the diaries. This refined world gives way to vivid descriptions of the horrific fighting on the Eastern and Western fronts of World War I, the intriguing private discussions among the German political and military elite about the progress of the war, as well as Kessler’s account of his role as a diplomat with a secret mission in Switzerland. Profoundly modern and often prescient, Kessler was an erudite cultural impresario and catalyst who as a cofounder of the avant-garde journal Pan met and contributed articles about many of the leading artists and writers of the day. In 1903 he became director of the Grand Ducal Museum of Arts and Crafts in Weimar, determined to make it a center of aesthetic modernism together with his friend the architect Henry van de Velde, whose school of design would eventually become the Bauhaus. When a public scandal forced his resignation in 1906, Kessler turned to other projects, including collaborating with the Austrian writer Hugo von Hofmannsthal and the German composer Richard Strauss on the opera Der Rosenkavalier and the ballet The Legend of Joseph, which was performed in 1914 by the Ballets Russes in London and Paris. In 1913 he founded the Cranach-Presse in Weimar, one of the most important private presses of the twentieth century. The diaries present brilliant, sharply etched, and often richly comical descriptions of his encounters, conversations, and creative collaborations with some of the most celebrated people of his time: Otto von Bismarck, Paul von Hindenburg, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Richard Strauss, Igor Stravinsky, Sergei Diaghilev, Vaslav Nijinsky, Isadora Duncan, Ruth St. Denis, Sarah Bernhardt, Friedrich Nietzsche, Rainer Marie Rilke, Paul Verlaine, Gordon Craig, George Bernard Shaw, Harley Granville-Barker, Max Klinger, Arnold Böcklin, Max Beckmann, Aristide Maillol, Auguste Rodin, Edgar Degas, Éduard Vuillard, Claude Monet, Edvard Munch, Ida Rubinstein, Gabriele D’Annunzio, Pierre Bonnard, and Walther Rathenau, among others. Remarkably insightful, poignant, and cinematic in their scope, Kessler’s diaries are an invaluable record of one of the most volatile and seminal moments in modern Western history.

READING: they represented a congeries of varied languages, cultures and traditions. Moreover the status of Germany, in theory ruled by the Hapsburgs in their capacity of Holy Roman Emperors, had since the conclusion of the Thirty Years War been in some doubt. In practice the Hapsburgs could count on obedience always in their family dominions, not particularly extensive and mostly concentrated in the West (Vorderosterreich); sometimes in the South German Catholic states; and virtually not at all in the Protestant North. Then, too, in the second half of the seventeenth century Prussia had emerged as a power, which although still technically a part of the Empire, was increasingly capable and willing to pursue a thoroughly independent course. The position of Charles VI was thus not an entirely happy one. The long run alternatives which would seem to have confronted him were either to acquiesce in the continuing erosion of Hapsburg influence in Germany, which ultimately might well have resulted in his ruling over a Danubian Empire with a German-speaking minority; or to try to buttress his position in Germany, which would have required eventually a viable modus vivendi between his German and non-German subjects.

READING: In recent decades critics in several countries have complained that education in agriculture, engineering and medicine has drifted away from an earlier practical orientation, becoming increasingly irrelevant to actual needs. Since existing histories have surprisingly little to say about the causes of such 'academic drift', this book develops a model of institutional dynamics which explains why different institutions have evolved closer to the worlds of 'science' or 'practice'. The model is based on a study of German agricultural colleges and the study surveys the evolution of the agricultural curriculum during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, as it swung back and forth between the poles of science and practice. It makes a comparative analysis of five colleges in the decades around 1900, some of them more science-oriented and others more practical, and follows the gradual transformation over half a century of two colleges in Bavaria which had to compete for recognition and funding. The wider relevance of these findings is also explored, not only for the history of agricultural education in the United States and Britain but also for engineering, medicine and management education, past and present.

READING: Drie ingrediënten voor moord... In een oude hangar op een verlaten militair vliegveld wordt een verontrustende vondst gedaan: een grote bloedvlek. Menselijk bloed. Van een lichaam is echter geen spoor te vinden. Het lijkt in eerste instantie een opzichzelfstaand mysterie, totdat DCI Alan Banks en zijn team te maken krijgen met de spoorloze verdwijning van twee verdachten in een diefstalzaak. Het politieonderzoek neemt vervolgens een lugubere wending wanneer een vrachtwagen tijdens een hagelstorm verongelukt. Reddingswerkers vinden in het wrak niet alleen het lichaam van de chauffeur, maar ook het lichaam van iemand die al lang voor het ongeluk dood was...
