"Das Dschungelbuch", englischer Originaltitel "The Jungle Book", ist eine Sammlung von Erzählungen und Gedichten des britischen Autors Rudyard Kipling. Der erste Band erschien 1894, der zweite 1895 unter dem Titel "The Second Jungle Book" ("Das zweite Dschungelbuch"); seither werden die Erzählungen der beiden Bände zumeist gemeinsam publiziert, oft als "The Jungle Books" ("Die Dschungelbücher"). Die bekanntesten Erzählungen darin handeln von Mowgli (in verschiedenen Übersetzungen auch Maugli oder Mogli geschrieben), einem Findelkind, das bei Tieren im indischen Dschungel aufwächst. Die Geschichten über Mowgli stehen dem Genre des Entwicklungsromans nahe, da sie Mowglis Erwachsenwerden und Bewusstwerdung vom verspielten Kind bis hin zum Herrn über die Tierwelt aufzeigen. Mowgli muss lernen, dass die Gesetze der Natur hart sind und ein hohes Maß von Verantwortung fordern. Im Kampf mit den Kräften der Natur, mit den Tieren und mit den Menschen reift das Kind zum selbstbewussten Jugendlichen. Trotz mancherlei kritischer Betrachtungen – man hat in der Darstellung der Charaktere und der Betonung des Gesetzes des Dschungels Kiplings positive Stellung zum Kolonialismus erblickt – ist die Bedeutung des Dschungelbuches auf die spätere literarische Entwicklung sowie seine Stellung als eines der bekanntesten und erfolgreichsten Jugendbücher der Welt kaum zu überschätzen.

Welcome to the Jungle

New Positions in Black Cultural Studies

Author: Kobena Mercer

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1135204764

Category: Art

Page: 352

Welcome to the Jungle brings a black British perspective to the critical reading of a wide range of cultural texts, events and experiences arising from volatile transformations in the politics of ethnicity, sexuality and "race" during the 1980s. The ten essays collected here examine new forms of cultural expression in black film, photography and visual art exerging with a new generation of black British artists, and interprets this prolific creativity within a sociological framework that reveals fresh perspectives on the bewildering complexity of identity and diversity in an era of postmodernity. Kobena Mercer documents a wealth of insights opened up by the overlapping of Asian, African and Caribbean cultures that constitute Black Britain as a unique domain of diaspora.

While working undercover, Steven Kendall has had many roles to play. His job entailed gathering evidence to prosecute animal and environmental activists involved in domestic terrorism, educating the public, and dealing with the media. Kendall refers to the role of the circus as ''Edutainment.'' The role he played for Ringling Bros. Circus (Feld Entertainment) was to offset the propaganda aimed at the circus industry by animal activists. He worked as a consultant to Feld Entertainment and wrote thousands of reports dealing with animal activists and environmental groups. Many of the reports Kendall wrote were used by the CIA. He organized counter demonstrations nationwide under the umbrella group ''Putting People First.'' Feld Entertainment was able to utilize this group to offset the animal activist protestors. Steven Kendall did numerous TV shows and news segments around the world. Everywhere the circus went so did Steven Kendall. The book deals with the life of a undercover private investigator who organized an operation with the financial backing of Feld Entertainment. Activist groups were shocked to learn they had been infiltrated by the circus industry. PeTA currently has a federal case in Virginia against Feld Entertainment. Any group opposed to PeTA and other animal activist groups poses a threat to them. In the book, Kendall stated there were times of frustration because of the lack of cooperation among government agencies, which included the USDA, FBI and CIA.

The Jungle, Japanese and the British Commonwealth Armies at War, 1941-45

Fighting Methods, Doctrine and Training for Jungle Warfare

Author: Tim Moreman

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1135764565

Category: History

Page: 288

View: 7846

This book focuses on the British Commonwealth armies in SE Asia and the SW Pacific during the Second World War, which, following the disastrous Malayan and Burma campaigns, had to hurriedly re-train, re-equip and re-organise their demoralised troops to fight a conventional jungle war against the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA). British, Indian and Australian troops faced formidable problems conducting operations across inaccessible, rugged and jungle-covered mountains on the borders of Burma, in New Guinea and on the islands of the SW Pacific. Yet within a remarkably short time they adapted to the exigencies of conventional jungle warfare and later inflicted shattering defeats on the Japanese. This study will trace how the military effectiveness of the Australian Army and the last great imperial British Army in SE Asia was so dramatically transformed, with particular attention to the two key factors of tactical doctrine and specialised training in jungle warfare. It will closely examine how lessons were learnt and passed on between the British, Indian and Australian armies. The book will also briefly cover the various changes in military organisation, medical support and equipment introduced by the military authorities in SE Asia and Australia, as well as covering the techniques evolved to deliver effective air support to ground troops. To demonstrate the importance of these changes, the battlefield performance of imperial troops in such contrasting operations as the First Arakan Campaign, fighting along the Kokoda Trail and the defeat of the IJA at Imphal and Kohima will be described in detail.

Now they've accepted a mission deep to find a missing adventurer deep in the jungles of Myanmar. But it is not long before Cabrillo and his team realise that they have been set up. Cabrillo - betrayed, tortured and played for a fool - is angry that he's been used as a pawn in someone's deadly scheme. But with the US nuclear launch codes up for grabs and a madman bent on using them to hold millions of lives to ransom, he hasn't time to worry about revenge. He's got to save the world first . . .

Jungle Fever

Exploring Madness and Medicine in Twentieth-century Tropical Narratives

Author: Charlotte Rogers

Publisher: Vanderbilt University Press

ISBN: 0826518311

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 234

View: 6065

The sinister "jungle"--that ill-defined and amorphous place where civilization has no foothold and survival is always in doubt--is the terrifying setting for countless works of the imagination. Films like Apocalypse Now, television shows like Lost, and of course stories like Heart of Darkness all pursue the essential question of why the unknown world terrifies adventurer and spectator alike. In Jungle Fever, Charlotte Rogers goes deep into five books that first defined the jungle as a violent and maddening place. The reader finds urban explorers venturing into the wilderness, encountering and living among the "native" inhabitants, and eventually losing their minds. The canonical works of authors such as Joseph Conrad, Andre Malraux, Jose Eustasio Rivera, and others present jungles and wildernesses as fundamentally corrupting and dangerous. Rogers explores how the methods these authors use to communicate the physical and psychological maladies that afflict their characters evolved symbiotically with modern medicine. While the wilderness challenges Conrad's and Malraux's European travelers to question their civility and mental stability, Latin American authors such as Alejo Carpentier deftly turn pseudoscientific theories into their greatest asset, as their characters transform madness into an essential creative spark. Ultimately, Jungle Fever suggests that the greatest horror of the jungle is the unknown regions of the character's own mind.
