Friedrich II., auch Friedrich der Große oder der Alte Fritz genannt (* 24. Januar 1712 in Berlin ; + 17. August 1786 in Potsdam), war ab 1740 König in und ab 1772 König von Preußen sowie Kurfürst von Brandenburg. Die von ihm gegen Österreich geführten drei Schlesischen Kriege um den Besitz Schlesiens führten zum Deutschen Dualismus. Nach dem letzten dieser Kriege, dem Siebenjährigen von 1756 bis 1763, war Preußen als fünfte Großmacht in der europäischen Pentarchie anerkannt neben Frankreich, Großbritannien, Österreich und Russland. Friedrich gilt als ein Repräsentant des aufgeklärten Absolutismus. So bezeichnete er sich selbst als Ersten Diener des Staates".Anti-Machiavel heißt ein Werk, das sich aus dem Briefwechsel zwischen Friedrich des II. von Preußen und Voltaire 1736-1740 heraus entwickelt hatte. Der damalige Erbprinz hatte im Alter von 24 Jahren mit dem Philosophen und Schriftsteller durch einen Brief vom 8. August 1736 Kontakt aufgenommen. www.arepo.biz

If it was true that the sun never set on the British Empire, it was equally true that it employed millions of equine subjects to defend, feed and maintain social order among its human citizens. Originally released in 1893, The Horse World of Victorian London provides an insight into the city 's incredible lost equestrian world.At the dawn of the 20th century, there were an estimated 300,000 horses living and working within the city limits of Great Britain 's capital. We are not speaking of horses lodged in farms in the nearby country who travelled in and out the city. Ironically, though the city streets were thronged with horses, few of them were used exclusively for riding. This was instead a massive four-legged work force, the likes of which today 's mechanised humans can neither remember nor relate to. For example every year London 's tram horses collectively travelled twenty-one million miles through the crowded city streets. An estimated forty thousand carriage horses pulled father to work and the children to school. Mother went shopping on the omnibus, of which 22,000 horses drew more than 2,000 vehicles every day. If the family couldn t afford a carriage, they could always travel by horse-drawn tram. London had 135 miles of horse drawn tram lines. Every year these tram horses collectively travelled twenty-one million miles through the crowded city streets. The North Metropolitan Tram Company alone employed 3,500 horses.Before the days of UPS and FEDEX, private companies delivered household goods to the family home from nearby railway stations. One company main tained 2,000 horses, which they kept stabled at twenty depots strategically placed around the great metropolis. The concept of rental cars has its roots in the London stable too. The Tilling Corporation maintained an inner-city herd of 2,500 horses which they rented to anyone, including washerwomen, the fire brigade and police. Meanwhile, the sturdy coal horses kept everyone warm by moving an average of thirty tons of coal a week.The accommodations for this enormous urban herd were as varied for the horses as the humans who employed them. Horses lived in everything from tiny huts in dark alleys to multi-storied stables which held several thousand horses under one roof. The doctor, the duke and the drayman all relied on hard-working horses, who routinely laboured ten hours a day for six days a week. From the Lord Mayor to the beggar boy, the horse influenced the daily lives of every Londoner.The nineteenth century was the golden age of the horse and this well-illustrated book serves as a unique guide through London 's vanished equine world.

Liebesgeschichten aus dem Decameron

Author: Giovanni Boccaccio

Publisher: C.H.Beck

Das Decameron des Giovanni Boccaccio ist eines der berühmtesten Bücher der europäischen Literatur. Viele der Novellen darin handeln von Liebe, aber Boccaccio hatte seinen eigenen Begriff davon. Anschaulich und witzig, wie sie sind, lassen sich die Novellen auch allein zur Unterhaltung lesen. Doch wer sie liest, dem werfen sich oft Fragen auf. Wie hat Boccaccio über Liebe, über Frauen und Männer gedacht? Was bedeutet insbesondere die seltsame Schlussnovelle? Sie handelt von Griselda, die sich von ihrem Mann auf die merkwürdigste Weise alles gefallen lässt. Von dieser Schlusserzählung her erscheint das ganze Decameron in einem neuen Licht.
