Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Ernst Jünger (* 29. März 1895 in Heidelberg; †... More > 17. Februar 1998 in Riedlingen) war ein deutscher Schriftsteller, Offizier und Insektenkundler. Er ist vor allem durch seine Kriegstagebücher In Stahlgewittern, durch Essays, phantastische Romane und Erzählungen bekannt. In seinem teilweise nationalistischen, anti-demokratischen und elitären Frühwerk, das der sogenannten Konservativen Revolution zugerechnet wird, kämpfte Jünger entschieden gegen die Weimarer Republik. Ob er als ein intellektueller Wegbereiter des Nationalsozialismus angesehen werden kann, ist in der Forschung umstritten. Von der nationalsozialistischen Ideologie distanzierte er sich in den frühen 1930er Jahren wegen des von ihm als geistlos empfundenen Totalitarismus der NS-Massenbewegung.
