Joseph Mileck was born in Sanktmartin, Roumania in 1922, immigrated to Canada in 1926 and again in 1931. He has a B.A. Degree from McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario (1945), and a Ph.D. from Harvard University (1950). Joseph was a member of the German Department of the University of California, Berkeley from 1950 to 1991. He has published five books and numerous articles, dealing with such German authors as Franz Kafka, Thomas Mann and Hermann Hesse. He has also edited two cultural-historical books about Sanktmartin, a typical German community in Roumania, and has published a book about that community's dialect. To these scholarly works, published from 1951 to 2003, Joseph has added three collections of his own poetry: A Trail of Poetic Reflections, Berkeley, California: Beatitude press, 2008, 114 pp; A Medley of Piquant Poetry and Edgy Epigrams, Berkeley, California: Beatitude Press, 2010, 126 pp; More Salt and Pepper: Poems and Epigrams.Berkeley, California: Beatitude Press, 2012, 173 pp.Présentation de l'éditeur :
America, once the land of golden dreams for millions of people, has become a world empire; and we are beginning to learn that the life of an empire resembles Thomas Hobbes’ description of life in a state of nature: “nasty, brutish, and short.” This book, by a scholar dragged reluctantly into political activism, offers a way out. Some will say that this book is “unpatriotic,” but it is really an act of supreme patriotism.
