The Business Affairs of Mr Julius Caesar

Author: Bertolt Brecht

Bertolt Brecht's extraordinary historical novel presents an aspiring scholar's efforts to write an idealized life of Julius Caesar twenty years after his death. But the historian abandons his planned biography, confronted by a baffling range of contradictory views. Was Caesar an opportunist, a permanently bankrupt businessman who became too big for the banks to allow him to fail ? as his former banker claims? Did he stumble into power while trying to make money, as suggested by the diary of his former slave? Across these different versions of Caesar's career in the political and economic life of Rome, Brecht wryly contrasts the narratives of imperial progress with the reality of grasping self-interest, in a sly allegory that points to the Weimar Republic and perhaps even to our own times. Brecht reminds his readers of the need for constant vigilance and critical suspicion towards the great figures of the past. In an echo of his dramatic theories, the audience is confronted with its own task of active interpretation rather than passive acceptance -- we have to work out our own views about Mr Julius Caesar. This edition is translated by Charles Osborne and features an introduction and editorial notes by Anthony Phelan and Tom Kuhn.

It's easy to assume that French words mean the same as English words, when they look and sound pretty much the same. Most of the time you'd be correct. However, some of these word pairs may have completely different meanings. They are called false friends, or "faux amis." These "faux amis" can cause misunderstandings, uncomfortable situations, and even embarrassment if you use them in conversation and they mean something entirely different than what you expected. This book is written to help you avoid these awkward misunderstandings. This book isn't a dry list of "faux amis." It's written in conversational language and is easy and fun to read. Each "faux ami" word pair is explained so that you will understand the differences in how the French word is used compared to the English. You'll also see examples of its usage in sentences and phrases. When you've finished reading this book, you will have learned most of these "faux amis" without ever having had to consciously memorize them, simply because they're so interesting.

Expressionism powerfully heralded the onset of the twenties. Today, the buildings that remain demonstrate great creativity with form and skillful use of light, color, and material, highlighting verticality and drama—the essence of the modern metropolis. With Fragments of Metropolis: Berlin, researcher Christoph Rauhut and photographer Niels Lehmann set out to document all the remaining expressionist buildings in Berlin. With Fragments of Metropolis—Rhein | Ruhr, Rauhut and Lehmann present the results of the next phase of this major undertaking, showing that the Rhine-Ruhr region had a similarly rich expressionist heritage. Lehmann’s new photographs are here set alongside drawings, an illustrated index of buildings, and maps that help the reader group the buildings by area, including Bochum, Bottrop, Dortmund, Duisburg, D�sseldorf, Essen, Gelsenkirchen, Hagen, Cologne, M�nster, Oberhausen, and more. Simultaneously a celebration of a lost period and a reminder of the riches it has left to us, Fragments of Metropolis—Rhein | Ruhr is a stunning achievement of historical and artistic preservation.
