Nationalism and Nationhood in the United Arab Emirates by Martin Ledstrup

English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 125 Pages | ISBN : 3319916521 | 2.34 MB

This book shows how an encounter with everyday nationhood in the northern United Arab Emirates can make us revisit the classics of sociology as continuous analytical world-views. Through the textual universe of Georg Simmel, and in particular his analysis of modern life as the feeling of dualism, the project reflects about how seemingly crucial challenges to the national – the forces of globalization and the wish to be unique – are drawn together with the formation of nationhood in everyday life. It does so not least by attending to the instances of everyday nationhood – like fashion and car-driving – that are at the same time central ways of embodying the modern. This volume appeals to students of nationalism, classical sociology, and the modern Arab Gulf.

Originally published in German in 2010 as Krone, Kirche und Verfassung – Konservatismus in den englischen Unterschichten 1815–1867 by Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht GmbH & Co. KG, Göttingen
Much scholarship on nineteenth-century English workers has been devoted to the radical reform politics that powerfully unsettled the social order in the century’s first decades. Comparatively neglected have been the impetuous patriotism, royalism, and xenophobic anti-Catholicism that countless men and women demonstrated in the early Victorian period.
This much-needed study of the era’s -conservatism from below- explores the role of religion in everyday culture and the Tories‘ successful mobilization across class boundaries.
Long before they were able to vote, large swathes of the lower classes embraced Britain’s monarchical, religious, and legal institutions in the defense of traditional English culture.

Marx’s critique of political economy is vital for understanding the crisis of contemporary capitalism. Yet the nature of its relevance and some of its key tenets remain poorly understood. This bold intervention brings together the work of leading Marx scholars Slavoj Žižek, Frank Ruda and Agon Hamza, to offer a fresh, radical reinterpretation of Marxism that explains the failures of neoliberalism and lays the foundations for a new emancipatory politics.
Avoiding trite comparisons between Marx’s worldview and our current political scene, the authors show that the current relevance and value of Marx’s thought can better be explained by placing his key ideas in dialogue with those that have attempted to replace them. Reading Marx through Hegel and Lacan, particle physics, and modern political trends, the authors provide new ways to explain the crisis in contemporary capitalism and resist fundamentalism in all its forms. Reading Marx will find a wide audience amongst activists and scholars.

Fernando Savater – Contro il separatismo

Italian | 2018 | 104 pages | ISBN: 8858131959 | EPUB | 0,9 MB

Questo libro non è una trattazione accademica o teorica ma un pamphlet che attacca frontalmente l’insensatezza e l’ingiustizia del separatismo. Secondo il filosofo Fernando Savater, il separatismo è da intendere come un’aggressione deliberata, calcolata e organizzata contro le istituzioni democratiche e contro i cittadini che le sentono proprie. Non a caso il diavolo è etimologicamente il separatore, dia-ballo, colui che separa e rompe i legami stabiliti. E separare coloro che vivono insieme è il misfatto antiumanista per eccellenza. Il difetto diabolico del separatismo è proprio questo: seminare la discordia, dividere gli animi.

..““. [Will] have an impact on two important fields of scholarship: social movement theory and the study of Islamic activist movements.““ – John Voll, Georgetown University
This volume represents the first comprehensive attempt to incorporate the study of Islamic activism into social movement theory. It argues that the dynamics, processes, and organization of Islamic activism can be understood as important elements of contention that transcend the specificity of „“Islam““ as a system of meaning and identity and a basis for collective action. Drawing on extensive fieldwork, the contributors show how social movement theory can be utilized to address a wide range of questions about the mobilization of contention in support of Muslim causes. The book covers myriad examples of Islamic activism (Sunni and Shi’a) in eight countries (Arab and non-Arab), including case studies of violence and contention, networks and alliances, and culture and framing.
