These hilarious adaptations of classic bedtime stories satirise the modern proclivity to all sexist, racist, culturist, nationalist, ageist, sizeist, ethnocentrist and phallocentrist bias and reflect a more enlightened sensibility. The Emperor is not naked in his new clothes but “is endorsing a clothing-optional lifestyle”. Snow White escapes to the cottage of “seven vertically-challenged men”, while Goldilocks is an ambitious scientist studying anthropomorphic bears. Fourteen timeless fairy tales are purged of the influence of a flawed and insensitive cultural past to become tales that are a must for all who pride themselves on being socially aware.

The power to act is two-sided in that it refers to the parent's ability to initiate (having children or responding to their actions) and to the ability to suffer consequences (irreversibility and unpredictability). The book argues that the best way of responding to these essential limits is for the parent to develop the interrelation between wisdom, ethicality and self-mastery, that is, practical wisdom.

Die Debatte um Multikulturalismus und Political Correctness dominierte in den 90er Jahren die öffentliche Auseinandersetzung in den USA und prägte die amerikanische politische Kultur nachhaltig. Ihre Erschütterungen reichten bis Europa und Deutschland. Mathias Hildebrandt berücksichtigt nicht nur die historische Tiefendimension dieser US-amerikanischen Selbstverständnisdebatte anhand der Rekonstruktion der zentralen Kampfbegriffe, sondern arbeitet auch die wesentlichen philosophischen und theoretischen Konzepte des postmodernen Multikulturalismus und dessen politische Ordnungskonzeption für die USA heraus. Neben diesen Dimensionen verfolgt der Autor die Debatte in die umstrittenen Policy-Felder, wie Schul- und akademische Bildungspolitik, Auseinandersetzung sowie Meinungsfreiheit und Sexual Harassment ebenso wie Affirmative Action Politik, und analysiert deren strukturelle und verfassungsrechtliche Aspekte.
