Der reich bebilderte Führer gibt auf 32 Seiten eine Einführung und einen informativen Überblick über die kulturhistorisch bedeutenden Denkmäler Aachens. Im Mittelpunkt steht der Dom mit seiner wechselvollen Baugeschichte und den wertvollen Schätzen im Inneren. Einen weiteren Schwerpunkt bilden die stadtgeschichtlich wichtigen Baudenkmäler von der mittelalterlichen Stadtmauer und dem imposanten Rathaus bis zur Anlage des Kurviertels. Enthalten sind ebenso die bedeutendsten Sakralbauten des Aachener Stadtbaumeisters Johann Joseph Couvens in Burtscheid - die beiden Kirchen St. Johann Baptist und St. Michael. Neben den Baudenkmälern des Aachener Barock werden auch die Bauwerke des 19. Jahrhunderts, die das Stadtbild nachhaltig prägen, gewürdigt. Der Führer stellt die wichtigen Museen der Stadt vor: das Suermondt-Ludwig-Museum, das Forum Ludwig für Internationale Kunst, das Couven-Museum, das Internationale Zeitungsmuseum, das Museum für Stadtgeschichte und Kunstgewerbe in der Burg Frankenberg sowie das Computermuseum der Rheinisch-Westfälischen Technischen Hochschule. Trotz seiner Kürze und Knappheit versucht der Führer, dem Leser die Geschichte der Stadt und ihrer Baudenkmäler zu erläutern.

In an increasingly urbanized world, urban terrain has become a greater factor in military operations. Simultaneously, advances in military technology have given military forces sharply increased capabilities. The conflict comes from how urban terrain can negate or degrade many of those increased capabilities. What happens when advanced weapons are used in a close-range urban fight with an abundance of cover? Storming the City explores these issues by analyzing the performance of the US Army and US Marine Corps in urban combat in four major urban battles of the mid-20th century (Aachen 1944, Manila 1945, Seoul 1950, and Hue 1968). Alec Wahlman assesses each battle using a similar framework of capability categories, and separate chapters address urban warfare in American military thought. In the four battles, across a wide range of conditions, American forces were ultimately successful in capturing each city because of two factors: transferable competence and battlefield adaptation. The preparations US forces made for warfare writ large proved generally applicable to urban warfare. Battlefield adaptation, a strong suit of American forces, filled in where those overall preparations for combat needed fine tuning. From World War II to Vietnam, however, there was a gradual reduction in tactical performance in the four battles. The book is published by University of North Texas Press. 1. Language: English.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, RWTH Aachen University, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: PAUL AUSTER`s novel 'City of Glass' published in 1985 appeared during the period of the postmodern era.1 Although it is considerably discussed at what time the beginnings of the postmodern era is to be set, it is irrefutable that ¿City of Glass¿ belongs to postmodern literature. To analyse in how far PAUL AUSTER`s ¿City of Glass¿ serves as a representative of the postmodern era and to show the reader in what way postmodern qualities are converted into the writings of that time, the main part of this paper will be divided up into two sections. The first section serves to define the coming up of this movement and the qualities it possesses within the genre of detective fiction. Furthermore some important idealistic features like the idea of reality and identity have to be taken into consideration. The short introduction of the two identity-constituting models by ERIKSON and MEAD will provide a better overview of the idea of identity formation. Within the second section the novel itself will be taken into consideration. Therefore it is necessary to take a close look at the main character Daniel Quinn and his character development the crisis of his identity in the course of the novel respectively. Besides another striking factor, namely the appearance of doublings and triplings of characters, has to be clarified as well as the role of the narrator. The conclusion at the end of the paper is supposed then to show to what extent ¿City of Glass¿ belongs to postmodern literature and which peculiarities of postmodern writings have been included in this novel. Since there are just a few recent publications on Paul Auster and his novels three of them namely, An Art of Desire: Reading Paul Auster by BERND HERZOGENRATH, Crisis: The Works of Paul Auster by CARSTEN SPRINGER and the publication of ANNE M. HOLZAPFEL The New York Trilogy: Whodunit?: Tracking the Structure of Paul Auster's Anti-Detective Novels served as the basis for this paper.
Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, RWTH Aachen University, language: English, abstract: 'Themes of ruin and apocalypse intensify in several poems of the 1840's' and as one of the today most approved writers of that time, Edgar Allan Poe's poetry is certainly worth being investigated in this regard. In this paper I want to investigate the apocalyptic vision in Edgar Allan Poe's poems 'The Conqueror Worm', published in 1843, and 'The City in the Sea', in its final version from the year 1845. I also have to mention that I will examine 'The Conqueror Worm' as a poem on its own and not in connection with the tale Ligeia, into which the poem was later (1845) established. I have also decided to work with the five-stanza version of 'The City in the Sea', opposed to a widely spread opinion that the poem should only contain four stanzas . For an analysis concerned with this topic, it has to be made clear what I understand when I use the term apocalyptic. Therefore the paper starts with an attempt to define the term as good as possible. Afterwards I am going to give a thorough analysis of 'The Conqueror Worm' first, and then I will analyze 'The City in the Sea'. The analyses are going to include interpretations according to the apocalyptic vision in the poems. At the end of the paper I will give a short summary together with the most important outcomes of the analyses.

It was a great pleasure for us to welcome so many experts from all over the world to our symposium in Aachen. We are also pleased - and you can attribute this to my own vanity - with the success and acceptance of the concept of myocardial reperfusion and revascularization - specifically selective intracoronary lysis followed either by PTCA or bypass surgery - which we have been pursuing since 1979. But after the dramatic immediate effects of the first attempts, which you have to experience yourself, we did not expect it to be any different. We decided against performing a randomized study in which every patient is catheterized, and thrombolytic therapy only given to some of the patients, for which we have been criticized at times. At the previous symposium in Aachen in 1983 on the topic of thrombolysis for acute myocardial infarction, in the final session several speakers were asked directly about this topic, and replied that if they were patients they would not want to be randomized into the placebo group. In the meantime positive results from large, randomized studies have been recorded, which are presented in this volume. I mention in particular the Western Washington Study from Dr. Kennedy and the Interuniversity Study in Holland. Aachen, a relatively small city with 250,000 inhabitants, provided the opportunity to treat a relatively large patient population with acute myocardial infarction.

An insider's guide to discovering the world's best urban art. From amazing wall murals to Banksy's stencils and Invader's mosaics, we showcase 140 creative hotspots across 42 cities and tell you how to find them, as well as introduce pioneering artists and interview those who shaped the movement. Street art is now present in almost every city, town and village in the world, from Aachen to Zwolle. Its true audience is measured in the billions. And given that the first record of homo sapiens painting on walls is thought to date back around 40,000 years, it's surprising that street art has taken so long to flourish. Today, the proliferation of legal walls and organised festivals around the world makes it possible to encounter thought-provoking, transformative art in the most unexpected of places. This visual guide to the world of street art takes in the scene in over 40 cities and includes interviews with some of the most prolific and well-known street artists, including Blek le Rat, FAILE and Faith47. And with hundreds of locations plotted and a special focus on 15 of the world's most incredible street art festivals, this guide will help you discover artworks hidden in plain sight around the world.
