 I consider myself very fortunate to have had Professor Brigitte Georgi-Findlay for a mentor. Iwill always feel grateful to her immense intellectual generosity. She has supported my work as a true colleague and scholar and respected my arguments even when she disagreed withthem. My sincerest thanks go also to Professor Eckehard Schulz who suggested paying moreattention to the world of economic realities. I will always be grateful to Professor Julia Leydafor her insights and support. Many thanks to Kerstin Mächler for treating the final editingwork with the highest level of professionalism.The research that led to this dissertation could not have been accomplished without thefinancial support of the Sächsische Landesstipendium. Thanks to its support I was also able toconduct my research in the United States as well as in several countries in the Arab world,like Egypt, Jordan, and Morocco.My special thanks go to my husband Andreas Fritsch, my sister Ouafâa El Alaoui, my brother Saifeddine El Alaoui, my family in Germany, especially Annelie Fritsch and ChristaMosert. I am also very thankful to all my friends for their constant and loving support. To my parents, Fatima El Jaouhari and Sidi Mohammed El Alaoui, I dedicate this work.
 Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blameupon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently studythem, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus hewill by and by convince himself that the war is just, and willthank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.Mark Twain, posthumous in
 Harper’s Monthly,
1916Columbia,My dear girl,You really haven’t been a virgin for so longIt’s ludicrous to keep up the pretext.You’re terribly involved in world assignationsAnd everybody knows it.You’ve slept with all the big powersIn military uniforms,And you’ve taken the sweet lifeOf all the little brown fellowsIn loin cloths and cotton trousers.When they’ve resisted,You’ve yelled, “Rape,”At the top of your voiceAnd called for the middiesTo beat them up for not being gentlemenAnd liking your crooked painted mouth.[……………………………………….]Being one of the world’s big vampires,Why don’t you come on out and say soLike Japan, and England, and France,And all the other nymphomaniacs of power […]?Langston Hughes, “Columbia,”
