Book Description: Die Germanistik kann als Fach auf eine über 150jährige Geschichte zurückblicken. Als Wissenschaft von der deutschen Sprache und Literatur bildete sie sich in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts heraus, und mit ihren Anfängen verbinden sich so berühmte Namen wie Jacob Grimm, Karl Lachmann und Wilhelm Wackernagel. Durch ihre Verbindung zu den anderen Philologien und Kulturwissenschaften war sie von Anfang an selbst ein Teil der Geistesgeschichte. Leben und Werk ihrer Vertreter sind daher nicht nur ein Spiegel der Wissenschafts-, sondern auch der Literatur- und Sozialgeschichte. Das Internationale Germanistenlexikon, das unter Beteiligung zahlreicher Fachgelehrter aus dem In- und Ausland am Deutschen Literaturarchiv in Marbach entwickelt wurde, bietet umfassende Informationen zu 1500 weltweit bedeutenden Germanisten zwischen 1800 und 1950. Es stellt ein grundlegendes Nachschlagewerk für Fachhistoriker und Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaftler dar und versammelt erstmals alle bio-bibliographischen Daten in systematischer Übersicht. Das Material wurde z. T. aus entlegenen Quellen und schwer zugänglichen Nachlässen gewonnen. Vorarbeiten zu diesem Lexikon wurden erbracht von Frau Dr. Christa Hempel-Küter. Jeder Artikel bietet neben ausführlichen Angaben zu Lebensdaten, akademischer Laufbahn, Ehrungen und Mitgliedschaften eine umfassende Bibliographie sowie Hinweise zum Nachlaß. Das Lexikon wird durch zahlreiche Indizes erschlossen, die gezielte Recherchen, z. B. nach Doktorvätern, Wirkungsorten oder Forschungsgegenständen, ermöglichen. Das Internationale Germanistenlexikon ist damit ein unverzichtbares, in seinem Materialreichtum einzigartiges Hilfsmittel für die Nachzeichnung und Analyse des historischen Weges der deutschen Philologie und ihrer Protagonisten. Das "Internationale Germanistenlexikon 1800-1950" findet aufmerksame Leser. Ihre Hinweise, Korrekturen und Ergänzungen, auch Diskussionsbeiträge, die eine größere Öffentlichkeit verdienen, publiziert der Herausgeber des Lexikons Christoph König in der Zeitschrift "Geschichte der Germanistik. Mitteilungen". Die dort neu eingerichtete Rubrik "Das aktuelle Lexikon" verzeichnet fortlaufend die relevanten neuen Informationen. Sie richtet sich an alle Besitzer und Nutzer des "Internationalen Germanistenlexikons 1800-1950". Interessenten an der Zeitschrift wenden sich bitte an den Wallstein-Verlag (Göttingen) oder schreiben an: Deutsches Literaturarchiv, Arbeitsstelle für die Erforschung der Geschichte der Germanistik, Postfach 1162, 71666 Marbach am Neckar; E-Mail: [email protected]

Book Description: Troubled by his complex sexuality, Monro was a tormented soul whose aim was to serve the cause of poetry. Hibberd's revealing and beautifully-written biography will help rescue Monro from the graveyard of literary history and claim for him the recognition he deserves. Poet and businessman, ascetic and alcoholic, socialist and reluctant soldier, twice-married yet homosexual, Harold Monro probably did more than anyone for poetry and poets in the period before and after the Great War, and yet his reward has been near oblivion. Aiming to encourage the poets of the future, he befriended, among many others, T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound and the Imagists; Rupert Brooke and the Georgians; Marinetti the Futurist; Wilfred Owen and other war poets; and the noted women poets, Charlotte Mew and Amma Wickham.

Book Description: Edward Wilson (1872-1912) accompanied Robert Falcon Scott on both his celebrated Antarctic voyages: the Discovery Expedition of 1901-1914 and the Terra Nova Expedition of 1910-1913. Wilson served as Junior Surgeon and Zoologist on Discovery and, on this expedition, with Scott and Ernest Shackleton he set a new Furthest South on 30 December 1902. he was Chief of Scientific Staff on the Terra Nova Expedition and reached the South Pole with Scott, Lawrence Oates, Henry Robertson Bowers and Edgar Evans on 18 january 1912, arriving there four weeks after the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen. Wilson and his four companions died on the return journey. Trained as a physician, Wilson was also a skilled artist. His drawings and paintings lavishly illustrated both expeditions. He was the last major exploration artist; technological developments in the filed of photography were soon to make cameras practical as a way of recording journeys into the unknown. This biography, the first full account of the Antarctic hero, traces his life from childhood to his tragic death.

Book Description: James Chadwick (1891-1974) came from a humble background: his father was a cotton spinner. He was accepted in the physics department of Sir Ernest Rutherford at Manchester University in 1908 on a scholarship, and soon started publishing new findings about radioactivity. This led to a traveling scholarship to Berlin, where he made the important discovery of the continuous spectrum of β-particles. When the World War I broke out, Chadwick was interned by the Germans as an enemy alien for the next four years, but continued experiments in the prison camp. On his return to England in broken health, Rutherford invited Chadwick to join the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge where he became Rutherford’s deputy and oversaw much groundbreaking physics research over the next 15 years. Chadwick concentrated on finding evidence for the neutron, an uncharged nuclear particle whose existence was first proposed by Rutherford in 1920. Having noticed anomalous results from the Curie laboratory in Paris in 1932, Chadwick used simple bench-top apparatus to convince himself, after weeks of intense observations, that he had definite evidence for the existence of the neutron. The Nobel Prize for physics followed in 1935; that year he moved to Liverpool University to head his own department. At the outbreak of World War II, the feasibility of atomic bombs of unprecedented explosive power was already being discussed. Chadwick drafted the British MAUD committee's historic reports in the summer of 1941 which concluded that atomic bombs were indeed feasible with sufficient industrial capacity. In wartime Britain this was impossible, but in 1943 Chadwick moved to the US as head of the British scientists working on the Manhattan Project. He formed an unlikely alliance with its leader, General Leslie Groves, and became an adroit scientist-diplomat. Witnessing the first explosion of a plutonium-fueled device at the Trinity Test shattered him. Chadwick believed that dropping atomic bombs on Japanese cities was justified but the development of nuclear weapons as an unintended consequence of his discovery of the neutron caused him deep personal anguish. “Until this excellent book by Andrew Brown, [Chadwick] has remained the most shadowy of the atomic scientists who, for better or worse, gave the human species mastery over nuclear energy.” — Nigel Calder, New Scientist “Andrew Brown’s biography beautifully reveals [Chadwick’s] scientific, diplomatic and personal achievements.” — Roger H Stuewer, Physics Today “I can warmly recommend this book to all interested in the life of a remarkable scientist who played a crucial role in a formative period of the modern world.” — Hermann Bondi, Times Higher Education Supplement “This is the biography of a physicist who made one of the most important discoveries in nuclear physics, but retained to his old age the shyness of a young lad... Andrew Brown takes us through Chadwick’s life as an adventure... I found it a very good read.” — Hans Bethe, American Journal of Physics “The tale of so sterling a character, even when told as well as in this book, may be a little short on light moments, but any reader interested in the evolution of physics from an academic passion to a leading role on the world stage will find it a fascinating story and a worthy tribute to a great scientist.” — Brian Pippard, Nature “... makes absorbing reading... more than the life story of a remarkable man... unfolds the tremendous transformation that science underwent in the 20th century.” —Joseph Rotblat “… avidly researched and artfully written... This biography... blends elegantly direct scientific descriptions with often witty episodes and character summaries.” — William Lanouette, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists
