Neuausgabe einer bedeutenden politischen Schrift Thomas Hobbes’, die vordergründig die Vorgeschichte und den Verlauf des englischen Bürgerkriegs behandelt, aber im engen Zusammenhang mit dem »Leviathan« (PhB 491) steht. Dem biblischen Seeungeheuer Leviathan, das in Hobbes gleichnamigem Hauptwerk für die Allmacht des absolutistischen Staates steht, stellt der Autor in dieser Schrift, die aufgrund eines königlichen Druckverbots erst posthum erscheinen konnte, das Landungeheuer Behemoth aus der jüdischen Mythologie gegenüber. The Long Parliament bestand im Gegensatz zum Short Parliament, das nur 22 Tage, beginnend am 13. April 1640, tagte, offiziell von 1640 bis 1660. Dies ist die Periode, die Hobbes in seinem Behemoth behandelt. Während der Leviathan systematisch erarbeitet, welche Bedingungen für einen funktionierenden Staat erfüllt sein müssen, diskutiert der Behemoth die Gründe für den durch Aufruhr und Bürgerkrieg herbeigeführten Verfall des englischen Staates. Behemoth or the Long Parliament steht als Chiffre für Anarchie und Auflösung staatlicher Gewalt. Titel und Inhalt der Schrift scheinen das bewusst gewählte Gegenbild zum konstruktiven Staatsentwurf des Leviathan zu bilden, und in der Tat sind beide Werke in engem Zusammenhang zu lesen. Der Behemoth ist in Dialogform verfasst. Hobbes geht es darum, die Gründe zu verstehen, die zur Auflösung des englischen Gemeinwesens geführt haben, aber er verfolgt auch Fragen nach einer erfolgreichen politischen Erziehung, die seiner Ansicht nach vom Souverän geleistet werden muss. In seinem einleitenden Essay beleuchtet der Herausgeber neben der verwickelten Editionsgeschichte ausführlich den Gedankengang und den historischen und philosophischen Hintergrund dieses wichtigen Hobbes’schen Werks.

Franz Neumann's classic account of the governmental workings of Nazi Germany, first published in 1942, is reprinted in a new paperback edition with an introduction by the distinguished historian Peter Hayes. Neumann was one of the only early Frankfurt School thinkers to examine seriously the problem of political institutions. After the rise of the Nazis to power, his emphasis shifted to an analysis of economic power, and then after the war to political psychology. But his contributions in Behemoth were groundbreaking: that the Nazi organization of society involved the collapse of traditional ideas of the state, of ideology, of law, and even of any underlying rationality. The book must be studied, not simply read, Raul Hilberg wrote. The most experienced researchers will tell us that the scarcest commodity in academic life is an original idea. If someone has two or three, he is rich. Franz Neumann was a rich man. Published in association with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Behemoth, or The Long Parliament is essential to any reader interested in the historical context of the thought of Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679). In De Cive (1642) and Leviathan (1651), the great political philosopher had developed an analytical framework for discussing sedition, rebellion, and the breakdown of authority. Behemoth, completed around 1668 and not published until after Hobbe's death, represents the systematic application of this framework to the English Civil War. In his insightful and substantial Introduction, Stephen Holmes examines the major themes and implications of Behemoth in Hobbes's system of thought. Holmes notes that a fresh consideration of Behemoth dispels persistent misreadings of Hobbes, including the idea that man is motivated solely by a desire for self-preservation. Behemoth, which is cast as a series of dialogues between a teacher and his pupil, locates the principal cause of the Civil War less in economic interests than in the stubborn irrationality of key actors. It also shows more vividly than any of Hobbe's other works the importance of religion in his theories of human nature and behavior.

They have measured the slow pulse of the seasons as the Earth spins its stately annual dance. Their memories stretch back across the million-year cycles of the ice sheets. Their stories tell of the making of the world. And as the millenia have passed, their legends have served them well. And a thousand years from now, on a different world, they will be the difference between life and death, between extinction and a future as long as the past. This new ebook edition collects three of Stephen Baxter's early books together for the first time. Starting with the story of SilverHair, the last of the few remaining mammoths that have survived in a Siberian evolutionary backwater the MAMMOTH trilogy is the story of the mammoths of history and legend. It is their story built on their own myths and traditions. Conscious and intelligent, the mammoths of this trilogy have, within the limits of their nature, their own culture and oral mythology, even a creation myth, which they will use to tell their story, understand their world and try to cope with the encroachments of mankind.

Have dinosaurs always lived with man? The Bible clearly shows the answer is yes! God created these great creatures and gave man dominion over them. Esau domesticated them. Nehemiah rode them. Ancient armies appear to have fought from them or along side them. People used them for labor and even ate them! Behemoth, Tanniyn, Yownah, Chamowr—the pages of the Bible in its original languages finally reveals the truth about dinosaurs and man in some incredibly wonderful ways! The lying doctrines of evolution claiming “billions of years” and “man never saw a dinosaur” are shown to be what they are—lies designed to deceive men into believing the Bible is not true. Men today see the bones of these creatures in museums and wonder, “If the Bible is true, why are there no dinosaurs found in its pages?”. After many centuries of the Bible existing in English, God gets the glory for His second-most magnificent creation next to man: the great dinosaurs!
