In The Wrongs of the Right, Matthew W. Hughey and Gregory S. Parks set postracial claims into relief against a background of pre- and post-election racial animus directed at President Obama, his administration, and African Americans. They show how the political Right deploys racial fears, coded language and implicit bias to express and build opposition to the Obama administration. Racial meanings are reservoirs rich in political currency, and the race card remains a potent resource for othering

The work examines Grillparzer's dramatic production from two differing but complementary viewpoints. Various aspects of human existence as acting are analysed, among them: the loss of self through identification with a role, the attempt to influence others' acting of their roles, the influence of costume and setting on the actors. Then Grillparzer's plays are treated in the light of the «theatrum mundi» concept, and an attempt is made to determine both Grillparzer's borrowings from earlier

Benjamin Fondane was a poet, literary critic, and philosopher who produced most of his literary works in Paris in the 1930s. He became a disciple of his close friend, the Russian philosopher of existential thought, Lev Shestov.
