Als sie mit 19 in ein Kloster eintrat, hoffte sie auf eine schöne Zukunft. Sie wurde Ordensschwester in einer jungen und charismatischen Gemeinschaft. Als sie diese Gemeinschaft 2011 wieder verließ, war sie depressiv, praktisch mittellos und hatte keine sozialen Kontakte mehr. Sie war kontrolliert, manipuliert, sexuell missbraucht und unter Druck gesetzt worden. Ihre Oberen hatten sie entmündigt, als billige Haushaltskraft eingesetzt, vor sexuellen Übergriffen nicht geschützt und nicht versorgt, wenn sie krank war. Dafür hatten sie die junge Frau als Aushängeschild benutzt: Sie hatte unzähligen Bischöfen den Ring geküsst und die päpstliche Wohnung von innen kennengelernt. Bei einem Aufenthalt auf der Terrasse des päpstlichen Palastes hätte sie sich einmal fast das Leben genommen. Nur das Glück, in der tiefsten Verzweiflung einen Freund zu finden, rettete ihr schließlich das Leben.

Winner of the George Polk Award: Charles Rembar’s illuminating account of overturning America’s obscenity laws and protecting literature from censorship Up until the 1960s, depending on your state of residence, your copy of Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer might be seized by the US Postal Service before reaching your mailbox. Selling copies of Cleland’s Fanny Hill in your bookstore was considered illegal. Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D. H. Lawrence was, according to the American legal system, pornography with no redeeming social value. Today, these novels are celebrated for their literary and historic worth. The End of Obscenity is Charles Rembar’s account of successfully arguing the merits of such great works of literature in front of the Supreme Court. As the lead attorney on the case, he—with the support of a few brave publishers—changed the way Americans read and honor books, especially the controversial ones. Filled with insight from lawyers, justices, and the authors themselves, The End of Obscenity is a lively tour de force. Racy testimony and hilarious asides make Rembar’s memoir not only a page-turner but also an enlightening look at the American legal system.

Explicit material is more widely available in the internet age than ever before, yet the concept of ‘obscenity’ remains as difficult to pin down as it is to approach without bias: notions of what is ‘obscene’ shift with societies’ shifting mores, and our responses to explicit or disturbing material can be highly subjective. In this intelligent and sensitive book, Kerstin Mey grapples with the work of twentieth-century artists practising at the edges of acceptability, from Hans Bellmer through to Nobuyoshi Araki, from Robert Mapplethorpe to Annie Sprinkle, and from Hermann Nitsch to Paul McCarthy. Mey refuses sweeping statements and ‘knee-jerk’ responses, arguing with dexterity that some works, regardless of their ‘high art’ context, remain deeply problematic, whilst others are both groundbreaking and liberating.

This is the only encyclopedia and social history of swearing and foul language in the English-speaking world. It covers the various social dynamics that generate swearing, foul language, and insults in the entire range of the English language. While the emphasis is on American and British English, the different major global varieties, such as Australian, Canadian, South African, and Caribbean English are also covered. A-Z entries cover the full range of swearing and foul language in English, including fascinating details on the history and origins of each term and the social context in which it found expression. Categories include blasphemy, obscenity, profanity, the categorization of women and races, and modal varieties, such as the ritual insults of Renaissance flyting and modern sounding or playing the dozens. Entries cover the historical dimension of the language, from Anglo-Saxon heroic oaths and the surprising power of medieval profanity, to the strict censorship of the Renaissance and the vibrant, modern language of the streets. Social factors, such as stereotyping, xenophobia, and the dynamics of ethnic slurs, as well as age and gender differences in swearing are also addressed, along with the major taboo words and the complex and changing nature of religious, sexual, and racial taboos.
