Everything is PR

"Res Publica Nowa" takes a tactical approach to the propaganda war with Russia; "Soundings" braces itself for the UK's general election; "Arena" tries to understand the life of a young Islamic State warrior; "Osteuropa" narrates European histories of violence; "Syn og Segn" opts for trust over regulation as democracy's mainstay; "Kulturos barai" marks 25 years Lithuanian independence; and "Merkur" re-reads Kittler and Sontag.

The first man

On the North, literature and colonialism

Nordic countries might not have a "classical" colonial past, writes Stefan Jonsson, yet a "northern colonialism" does exist. Any understanding of it must start with Nordic culture's view of nature and the myth of the "first man". [German version added] [more]
