One of the ways that scholars have seen Ozdamar as collapsing preexisting cultural boundaries is through a meandering picaresque novelistic structure. Indeed, onika Shafi argues that Ozdamar "borrows from the comic and picaresque traditions [using] a theatrical, performance-based approach to identity and interaction."
Shafi's reading prompts one to acknowledge the 1960s cultural climate in which Ozdamar wrote. Specifically, she wrote at a time in which the theatrical writings of leftist intellectuals such as Bertolt Brecht and the documentary theater of playwrights such as Peter Weiss were quite popular. The performative novelistic structure was viewed as an indispensible method for engaging the reader in an intellectual rather than emotional manner. The overt political agenda of Brecht is may also exist in a latent form in Ozdamar's work; in contrast with scholars like Ebel that have viewed Ozdamar as somewhat primitive, a Brechtian subtext might prove the efficacy of claims such as those….

German television market has been a major part of the country's cable network operations that has continued to generate huge revenues in the recent past. Actually, the digital television market accounts for more than 70% of cable network operators as usually forecasted. There are three major drivers of growth in the nation's cable television market i.e. digital Pay Television, telephony, and the Internet. As the revenues from Pay TV continue to experience steady growth, the Internet has played a crucial role in the German Television market. While there were fears that the Internet would replace private television channels in the country, it has complemented it and contributed to its significant growth. The role of the Internet in the expansion and growth of the German television market is evident in the fact that over 15% of cable TV customers receive Internet access from the cable provider ("German Cable Market 2012," n.d.).

After unification, Germany's trade surplus shrank for several years, yet West Germany had shown a dramatically high trade surplus during the late 1980's and into the early 1990's, reaching almost $80 billion U.S. dollars in 1988; by 1991, a united Germany showed a much lower surplus. As of 1999, exports reached $610 billion, made up of machinery, vehicles, chemicals, metals, foodstuffs and textiles. Germany's main exporting partners, as of 1998, were the European Union, France, Great ritain, Italy, the Netherlands, enelux, the United States and Japan. Import-wise, as of 1999, the figure stood at $587 billion with the import products comparing favorably with the exports; Germany also imports goods from the same exporting countries ("The German Economy," Internet).
eginning in 2000, annual average real growth in Germany reached 3.0%, almost double since unification in 1990. In 2001 and 2002, real growth was at about 0.6%, but in 2003, Germany "experienced….

Another barrier to the development of a unified German national identity in the 19th century was a strong sense of regionalism and patriotism on the local level. This was particularly true in the southern German states, which had benefited enormously from Germany's re-ordering by the Napoleonic forces.
This resulted in many conflicts between nationalists (who typically belonged to the larger German states) and regionalists (who typically belonged to the smaller, southern German states.)
Perhaps the biggest impact on the development of nationalism in Germany was the occupation of all of Germany west of the Rhine by France between the years of 1794 and 1814. France's occupation would leave long-lasting affects upon the German judicial, legal, and administrative systems, and cause on-going disputes between the two nations long after France's occupation came to an end.
The year 1813 marked a turning point in Germany's ongoing battles with France, with the former finally beginning to….

Technology was being deliberately advanced at a very rapid pace, much more rapidly than in peacetime, because of the competition between enemies, and because of the need to protect soldiers and civilians from those that would invade and destroy. Because of II, the world in general advanced faster, at least for a time, than it would have otherwise. hile the war was certainly not an enjoyable thing, there were good things that came from it. The way that the U.S. treated others was not one of those 'good things.'
Society is shaped by the things that have occurred in the past, and II was certainly a very important piece of history that will never be forgotten.

omanticism is nothing but a philosophical movement that started as a result of the increased growth of nationalism, the war of liberation and the reforms in the literary and cultural realms. In philosophy, the term is also related to emotionalism. The German romanticism is found as different from most of the other romanticism that spread across the world. The political revolution that happened during the 19th century is the vital reason for the birth of omanticism. Napoleon is regarded as the prime factor in bringing out the revolution. He was considered as the champion of the revolution, because the armies of France demolished the old order that prevailed in Germany.
We should not forget that Germany, more than any other country, had suffered very much from the conception of The Holy oman Empire. During earlier centuries German monarchs tried to establish themselves as oman emperors. Wherever the armies went, the….

German unification occupies a significant place in the history of this great European power. Otto Von Bismarck, once the prime minister of Prussia, is responsible for single-handedly engineering this unification through clever strategies and creative tactics. The paper sheds light on the role of this German Chancellor in the unification of Germany.
OLE OF BISMACK IN GEMAN UNIFICATION
Germany has seen and experienced more than its fair share of troubles, wars and turbulence. The country has been divided and unified twice and on both occasions, German population made huge sacrifices. But compared to reunification of 1989, the first unification was a gory affair because it was largely sponsored and supported by German military. Whenever military gets involved in any event, possibility of bloodshed looms large and that is exactly what happened in Germany in the decade of 1860-1870. It was the time when Otto Von Bismarck had come to power and was….

178) One of the most effective weapons against the U-boats and one of the main elements which led to their decline, was the deployment very long-range (VL) aircraft, particularly the Liberator B-24 bombers. (Lightbody, 2004, p. 178)
The Germans attempted to counter these stratgies with the deployment of the XXIII and XXI improved U-boats. These new U-boats were able to achieve higher speeds underwater, which were increased to approximately 20 knots, compared to the average 4 knots of the previous U-boats. (Lightbody, 2004, p. 178) They were also capable of operating at twice the depth of the ordinary U-boats and had had six torpedo tubes in place of the four on conventional craft. The new U-boats also had a hydraulic loading system, which was a radical improvement of the manual loading systems in older models. (Lightbody, 2004, p. 180)
These various countermeasures and improvements instituted by the German's were not enough….

Once again, Germany chose to protect its own economic interest and global diplomatic effectiveness rather than kowtow to the interests of its allies. However, perhaps even more galling (at least to the United States and Israel) is the fact that Germany "supported a Lebanese sponsored UN Security Council resolution which condemned Israeli settlement construction as 'illegal'" soon after its election to a temporary seat on the Security Council (it failed in its bid for a permanent seat in 2005, which The Economist presciently predicted would allow Angela Merkel to overtake then-Chancellor Schroder). It is worth pointing out the symbolic importance of Germany's support for the UN resolution, because it is in the end almost entirely symbolic. Israel's settlements are already illegal under international law, so Germany's vote served more to establish itself as….

The end of World war II, the occupation of Germany took place with the arrival of allied forces of ritain, France, America and Russia compelling the German 3rd Reich from both east and west. With the incoming division of Germany, the railways were divided and were not allowed to cross over boundaries from East and West Germany.

Small states are unable to protect their subjects." By alluding to the vulnerability of scattered German states before the strong Prussian state arrived to unite and lead them, he attempts to justify the dominance of the German Confederation by its strongest state, Prussia.
Also indicative of the more defined notions of the German identity during the period of expansion are the rants of Richard Wagner. In Wagner's extended rant about Jews, he claims that Jews lack the profundity, passion, and soul which so typify German people. To prove this, he points to the lack of Jewish representation in Music and Poetry, later breaking down famous Jewish composers and poets who might defy this categorization.
Unlike the nationalist rhetoric of the expansionist period, Hitler's speech defines Germany solely by the offenses committed upon her by outsiders, be they the French trespassing in the Rhineland, the Jews infiltrating Germany's political offices, or the….
In 1942, they were two of the Germans who were picked up by the FBI. Several FBI agents with machine guns entered the H.I. Voss Engineering Company in Bronx, New York, and arrested Alfred Heitmann. This may have been related to the German submarine landing on Long Island, which resulted in a great deal of war hysteria that made many people believe that German spies were everywhere in New York (Tolzmann 32).
Heitmann's internment resulted from the unconstitutional investigations of the government based on hearsay from informants whose reliability was never seriously checked out. Many informants' names suggest that they were of German origin, who perhaps were afraid of their own internment and thus willing to give evidence to protect themselves from intense questioning. Their comments now appear ridiculous, including such theories that Heitmann took many photographs although he never owned a camera, as later confirmed by a FBI search,….

Toilet paper is a product used by virtually everyone in modern society, and this the potential market size for biodegradable toilet paper in Germany is limited only by the size of the German population, for all practical purposes. As the offered product is highly differentiated, it will have a distinct advantage over competitors at least insofar as appearing obviously different from standard toilet paper rolls. At the same time, the lack of familiarity of the new product might be off-putting for German consumers, and with a commodity at once as necessary and yet as cheaply and readily available as toilet paper, there really is no way to create extra demand, expand markets, etc. Differentiation, then, is the key selling point of biodegradable toilet paper, and the environmental sensibilities of the average German consumer will likely be a major factor in their decision to change to the new product.
Karl Marx on the German Ideology:
Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels collaborated to produce The German Ideology, which was one of the classic texts generated by the two. Even though The German Ideology stands our as one of the major texts produced by the two, it was never published during Marx's lifetime. This was a clear expression of the theory of history by Marx and its associated materialist metaphysics. One of the main reasons this text is a classic text by these philosophers is the fact that it introduces students to the basic tenets of the philosopher's approach. Notably, Karl Marx produced The German Ideology in 1846 as a critique of George Friedrich Hegel and his followers in Germany. The philosophers sought to differentiate their concept of socialism from existing ones and exhibit how socialism emerges ordinarily from the social conflicts embedded in capitalism.
