Download Kissingers langer Schatten: Amerikas umstrittenster by Greg Grandin,Claudia Kotte,Thorsten Schmidt PDF

By Greg Grandin,Claudia Kotte,Thorsten Schmidt

Für die einen ist er Amerikas Metternich, für die anderen ein Zyniker und Kriegsverbrecher. Greg Grandin zeigt in seinem fesselnden Buch, dass Henry Kissinger vor allem eines ist: der einflussreichste Architekt des imperialen, militaristischen und weit nach rechts abgedrifteten Amerika von heute. Wer die Krise der Weltmacht united states verstehen will, der muss Kissinger verstehen – und Grandins Buch lesen. Es ist Kissinger, so argumentiert Greg Grandin, der eine militarisierte model des amerikanischen Exzeptionalismus eingeführt hat, die bis heute einseitig den imperialen Stil der amerikanischen Außenpolitik bestimmt. Mit seinem Glauben, dass die Realität dem amerikanischen Machtwillen unterworfen werden kann, dass die instinct des großen Staatsmanns für eine erfolgreiche Außenpolitik wichtiger ist als die genaue Kenntnis der Fakten und dass Fehler in der Vergangenheit kühnes Handeln in der Zukunft nicht beeinträchtigen dürfen, hat Kissinger den Aufstieg der Neokonservativen maßgeblich ermöglicht. Sein Erbe ist es, das die united states in die desaströsen Interventionen in Afghanistan und Irak hineinmanövriert und zu ihrem dramatischen Ansehensverlust in der Welt geführt hat.

By Thomas Weber,Karl Heinz Siber,Heike Schlatterer

Mit seinem Buch „Hitlers erster Krieg“ erregte der Historiker Thomas Weber 2010 internationales Aufsehen. Anhand einer Fülle neuer Quellen konnte er darlegen, dass Hitlers Rolle im Ersten Weltkrieg ganz anders aussah als von seinen Biographen geschildert und dass er am Kriegsende, anders als dargestellt, politisch absolut orientierungslos battle. Nur fünf Jahre später präsentierte Hitler dann in „Mein Kampf“ das ideologische Weltbild, das ihm bis zu seinem Tod Richtschnur blieb. Wie kam es zu dieser Metamorphose eines unpolitischen Nobodys zum Führer einer Bewegung, die die Welt veränderte? Welchen Einflüssen battle Hitler ausgesetzt, mit wem verkehrte er, welche politischen Äußerungen sind von ihm überliefert? Die einschlägige Literatur bietet wenig Erhellendes über diese Schlüsselzeit in Hitlers Karriere. Anhand neuer Quellenfunde beschreibt Weber die Schritte, die Hitler zum fanatischen Nazi machten. Sein Buch füllt eine Lücke in der Zeitgeschichtsschreibung und in der Biographie Hitlers.

Anhand neuer Quellen wird erstmals akribisch dargestellt, wie sich zwischen dem Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs und der Niederschrift von "Mein Kampf" Hitlers fanatisches Weltbild formte, an dem er dann bis zu seinem Tod festhielt.
