ERSOY, Ahmet; GORNY, Maciej; KECHRIOTIS, Vangelis (eds.): Modernism. Presentations of National Cultures; Discourses of collective identity, Volume III/2. Budapest, CEU Press, 2010. ISBN 978-963-7326-64-6. Hardcover, 398 p. 37,00 Euro (Best.Nr. U6378)
Fifty-one texts illustrate the evolution of modernism in the east-European region. Essays, articles, poems, or excerpts from longer works offer new opportunities of possible comparisons of the respective national cultures, from the different ideological approaches and finessing projects of how to create the modern state – liberal, conservative, socialist and others – to the literary and scientific attempts at squaring the circle of individual and collective identities. They reflect a more sophisticated and critical stance than in the preceding periods. It is also shown how minorities are discovered besides the dominant nations.
Miller, Jaroslav; Kontler, László (eds.): Friars, Nobles and Burghers - Sermons, Images and Prints. Studies of Culture and Society in Early-Modern Europe. Budapest, CEU Press, 2010. ISBN 978-963-9776-67-8. Hardcover, 478 p. 37,00 Euro (Best.Nr. U6379)
The essays in this volume reflect the broader interpretation of culture as a system of shared meanings, values, attitudes and symbolic forms in any sphere of human life. Although thematically diverse, all these studies adhere to the concept of what is sometimes termed the new cultural history or socio-cultural history. This book pays tribute to István György Tóth (1956-2005), Head of the Department of Early-Modern History at the Institute of History of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and Professor of History at Central European University (both in Budapest), until his premature death in 2005.
