Squatting is currently a global phenomenon. A concomitant of economic development and social conflict, squatting attracts public attention because – implicitly or explicitly – it questions property relations from the perspective of the basic human need for shelter. So far neglected by historical inquiry, squatters have played an important role in the history of urban development and social movements, not least by contributing to change in concepts of property and the distribution and utilization of urban space. An interdisciplinary circle of authors demonstrates how squatters have articulated their demands for participation in the housing market and public space in a whole range of contexts, and how this has brought them into conflict and/or cooperation with the authorities. The volume examines housing struggles and the occupation of buildings in the Global "North," but it is equally concerned with land acquisition and informal settlements in the Global "South." In the context of the former, squatting tends to be conceived as social practice and collective protest, whereas self-help strategies of the marginalized are more commonly associated with the southern hemisphere. This volume’s historical perspective, however, helps to overcome the north-south dualism in research on squatting.

The New York Times said of Józef Hieronim Retinger that he was on intimate terms with most leading statesmen of the Western World, including presidents of the United States. He has been repeatedly acknowledged as one of the principle architects of the movement for European unity after the World War II, and one of the outstanding creative political influences of the post war period. He has also been credited with being the dark master behind the so-called "Bilderberg Group," described variously as an organization of idealistic internationalists, and a malevolent global conspiracy. Before that, Retinger involved himself in intelligence activities during World War II and, given the covert and semi-covert nature of many of his activities, it is little wonder that no biography has appeared about him. This book draws on a broad range of international archives to rectify that.

This volume aims to provide a wider view of First World War experience through focusing on landscapes less commonly considered in historiography, and on voices that have remained on the margins of popular understanding of the war. The landscape of the western front was captured during the conflict in many different ways: in photographs, paintings and print. The most commonly replicated voicing of contemporary attitudes towards the war is that of initial enthusiasm giving way to disillusionment and a sense of overwhelming futility. Investigations of the many components of war experience drawn from social and cultural history have looked to landscapes and voices beyond the frontline as a means of foregrounding different perspectives on the war. Not all of the voices presented here opposed the war, and not all of the landscapes were comprised of trenches or flanked by barbed wire. Collectively, they combine to offer further fresh insights into the multiplicity of war experience, an alternate space to the familiar tropes of mud and mayhem.

Global issues such as climate change and the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis have spurred interest in thinking about the history of the modern economy that goes beyond disciplinary economic history. This book contributes to the cultural history of capitalism and its different regimes of productivity by pursuing the perspective of body history and by providing a global scope. Throughout modernity, the body served as a fundamental, albeit essentially changing, linchpin for both the organization of economic practices and for intellectual reflections on the economy. In particular, it was the pivotal interface to render notions of economic productivity intelligible. The book explores this central thesis in a range of case studies, drawing on source material from West Africa, Europe, Mexico, and the US. Framed by a theoretically informed introduction, which also provides a conceptual history of notions of productivity, and by an afterword that brings the approaches explored in this volume into dialogue with scholarship inspired by Marx and Foucault, the individual chapters tackle the concept of productivity from a wide array of angles, each illuminating the promises and problems of a cultural take on the history of economic productivity.

Nachdem in der Nacht auf den 3. April 1968 in zwei Frankfurter Kaufhäusern mehrere Brandsätze zündeten, fanden die Ermittler bei den Tatverdächtigen einen Zettel: »Der Konsumzwang terrorisiert euch. Wir terrorisieren die Ware.« Die Anschläge, an denen unter anderem die späteren Mitbegründer der RAF Andreas Baader und Gudrun Ensslin beteiligt waren, griffen eine im Kontext des Kalten Kriegs erstarkende Dimension der Gesellschaftskritik auf. Verstand die klassische marxistische Analyse die Produktion als die eigentliche Sphäre der Unterdrückung, so erschien nun zunehmend der Konsum als Reich der Unfreiheit. Widerstand gegen den »Konsumterror« galt als legitim, einigen sogar dann, wenn er militante Formen annahm. Gestützt auf umfangreiche Archivstudien, zeichnet Alexander Sedlmaier die Entwicklung der Konsumkritik in der Bundesrepublik nach. Er erläutert die insbesondere durch Herbert Marcuse formulierten theoretischen Grundlagen und stellt dar, wie sich der Protest im Zuge der Kampagnen gegen die Springer-Presse und Fahrpreiserhöhungen im öffentlichen Nahverkehr radikalisierte, bevor er in der Hausbesetzerszene zu einer eigenen Lebensform wurde.
