Grenzuberschreitungen" - das Uberwinden von Grenzen in ethnischer, kultureller und fachlicher Perspektive pragen das Werk von Gabriella Schubert, die qua Beruf und Berufung zum Dialog der Volker und Kulturen einladt. Mit der Festschrift Grenzuberschreitungen wird eine Wissenschaftlerin geehrt, die sich in ihrer langjahrigen Lehr- und Forschungstatigkeit zur Kultursemiotik, zu Selbst- und Fremdbild, Sprache und Identitat sowie zu den Volksliteraturen in Sudosteuropa grosse Anerkennung im In- und Ausland (u.a. Mitglied der Serbischen und der Ungarischen Akademie der Wissenschaften sowie des Prasidiums der Sudosteuropa- Gesellschaft) erworben hat. Zahlreiche Symposien und Buchveroffentlichungen zeugen davon, dass ihr besonders die deutsch-sudslawischen Beziehungen am Herzen liegen - eben die Uberwindung von Grenzen. "Grenzuberschreitungen" spiegeln sich ebenfalls in den Beitragen der Festschrift fur Gabriella Schubert wider, die 57 Kollegen, Weggefahrten, Schuler und Freunde der Jubilarin zum Geburtstag widmen. In dem Band vereinen sich Beitrage aus Balkanologie, Sudslawistik, Sudosteuropastudien, Rumanischer Philologie, Byzantinistik, Religionswissenschaft, Soziologie und sudosteuropaischer Geschichte, die sich alle thematisch mit den Traditionen und Identitaten in Sudosteuropa auseinandersetzen.
Setting out the historical national and religious characteristics of the Italians as they impact on the integration within the European Union, this study makes note of the two characteristics that have an adverse effect on Italian national identity: cleavages between north and south and the dominant role of family. It discusses how for Italians family loyalty is stronger than any other allegiance, including feelings towards their country, their nation, or the EU. Due to such subnational allegiances and values, this book notes that Italian civic society is weaker and engagement at the grass roots is less robust than one finds in other democracies, leaving politics in Italy largely in the hands of political parties. The work concludes by noting that EU membership, however, provides no magic bullet for Italy: it cannot change internal cleavages, the Italian worldview, and family values or the country’s mafia-dominated power matrix, and as a result, the underlying absence of fidelity to a shared polity—Italian or European—leave the country as ungovernable as ever.
Bibliographie Linguistique/ Linguistic Bibliography is the annual bibliography of linguistics published by the Permanent International Committee of Linguists under the auspices of the International Council of Philosophy and Humanistic Studies of UNESCO. With a tradition of more than fifty years (the first two volumes, covering the years 1939-1947, were published in 1949-1950), Bibliographie Linguistique is by far the most comprehensive bibliography in the field. It covers all branches of linguistics, both theoretical and descriptive, from all geographical areas, including less known and extinct languages, with particular attention to the many endangered languages of the world. Up-to-date information is guaranteed by the collaboration of some forty contributing specialists from all over the world. With over 20,000 titles arranged according to a detailed state-of-the-art classification, Bibliographie Linguistique remains the standard reference book for every scholar of language and linguistics.
From the reviews: "About 30 years ago, when I was a student, the first book on combinatorial optimization came out referred to as "the Lawler" simply. I think that now, with this volume Springer has landed a coup: "The Schrijver". The box is offered for less than 90.- EURO, which to my opinion is one of the best deals after the introduction of this currency." OR-Spectrum
