Was ist deine Bestimmung? Altruan – die Selbstlosen. Candor – die Freimütigen. Ken – die Wissenden. Amite – die Friedfertigen. Und schließlich Ferox – die Furchtlosen ... Fünf Fraktionen, fünf völlig verschiedene Lebensformen sind es, zwischen denen Beatrice, wie alle Sechzehnjährigen ihrer Welt, wählen muss. Ihre Entscheidung wird ihr gesamtes zünftiges Leben bestimmen, denn die Fraktion, der sie sich anschließt, gilt fortan als ihre Familie. Doch der Eignungstest, der über Beatrices innere Bestimmung Auskunft geben soll, zeigt kein eindeutiges Ergebnis. Sie ist eine Unbestimmte, sie trägt mehrere widerstreitende Begabungen in sich. Damit gilt sie als Gefahr für die Gemeinschaft. Beatrice entscheidet sich, ihre bisherige Fraktion, die Altruan, zu verlassen, und schließt sich den wagemutigen Ferox an. Dort aber gerät sie ins Zentrum eines Konflikts, der nicht nur ihr Leben, sondern auch das all derer, die sie liebt, bedroht...

Der Aufstand hat begonnen ... In einer ungewissen Zukunft, in der die Fraktionen zerfallen, gibt es keine Sicherheiten mehr. Außer der einen: Wo auch immer ich hingehe – ich gehe dorthin, weil ich es will... Drei Tage ist es her, seit die Ken mithilfe der ferngesteuerten Ferox-Soldaten unzählige Altruan umgebracht haben. Drei Tage, seit Tris' Eltern starben. Drei Tage, seit sie selbst ihren Freund Will erschossen hat – und aus Scham und Entsetzen darüber schweigt. Mit den überlebenden Altruan haben Tris und Tobias sich zu den Amite geflüchtet – doch dort sind sie nicht sicher, denn der Krieg zwischen den Fraktionen hat gerade erst begonnen. Wieder einmal muss Tris entscheiden, wo sie hingehört – selbst wenn es bedeutet, sich gegen die zu stellen, die sie am meisten liebt. Und wieder einmal kann es nur Tris in ihrer Rolle als Unbestimmte gelingen, die Katastrophe abzuwenden...

During the second half of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth, insurgencies erupted in imperial states and colonies around the world, including Britain's. As Nicole Rizzuto shows, the writings of Ukrainian-born Joseph Conrad, Anglo-Irish Rebecca West, Jamaicans H. G. de Lisser and V. S. Reid, and Kenyan Ng gi wa Thiong'o testify to contested events in colonial modernity in ways that question premises underlying approaches in trauma and memory studies and invite us to reassess divisions and classifications in literary studies that generate such categories as modernist, colonial, postcolonial, national, and world literatures. Departing from tenets of modernist studies and from methods in the field of trauma and memory studies, Rizzuto contends that acute as well as chronic disruptions to imperial and national power and the legal and extra-legal responses they inspired shape the formal practices of literatures from the modernist, colonial, and postcolonial periods.

The Revolt of 1857 in India has so far largely been viewed as an event that was of interest to British and Indian scholars investigating the various consequences of British colonial rule in India. What has remained out of the focus of study during the last 150 years is the possible impact of the Revolt elsewhere, its so to say international dimension: what, in particular, was the reaction in Europe where elemental social and political transformations were underway. Whatever the varied nature of the reactions, the space given to the Revolt in many European newspapers and journals while it was in progress is certainly extensive. What is more, representations of and reflections on the Revolt appeared both during the event and for long after its suppression, above all in forms of popular fiction but also in historical accounts, letters, reminiscences and other forms of writing. The collection of essays in this volume ventures into this unexplored terrain and offers a first look at some of these European responses.

"Smart, knowing, and deeply reported, the definitive history of one of modern American humor’s wellsprings." —Kurt Andersen, author of Fantasyland, host of NPR’s Studio 360 Labor Day, 1969. Two recent college graduates move to New York to edit a new magazine called The National Lampoon. Over the next decade, Henry Beard and Doug Kenney, along with a loose amalgamation of fellow satirists including Michael O’Donoghue and P. J. O’Rourke, popularized a smart, caustic, ironic brand of humor that has become the dominant voice of American comedy. Ranging from sophisticated political satire to broad raunchy jokes, the National Lampoon introduced iconoclasm to the mainstream, selling millions of copies to an audience both large and devoted. Its excursions into live shows, records, and radio helped shape the anarchic earthiness of John Belushi, the suave slapstick of Chevy Chase, and the deadpan wit of Bill Murray, and brought them together with other talents such as Harold Ramis, Christopher Guest, and Gilda Radner. A new generation of humorists emerged from the crucible of the Lampoon to help create Saturday Night Live and the influential film Animal House, among many other notable comedy landmarks. Journalist Ellin Stein, an observer of the scene since the early 1970s, draws on a wealth of revealing, firsthand interviews with the architects and impresarios of this comedy explosion to offer crucial insight into a cultural transformation that still echoes today. Brimming with insider stories and set against the roiling political and cultural landscape of the 1970s, That’s Not Funny, That’s Sick goes behind the jokes to witness the fights, the parties, the collaborations—and the competition—among this fraternity of the self-consciously disenchanted. Decades later, their brand of subversive humor that provokes, offends, and often illuminates is as relevant and necessary as ever.
