Grammar of the Common Good CONTINUUM

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Patrick Riordan's timely study analyzes the concept of the common good in light of recent heightened interest in globalization.Globalization: the catch-all term used to refer to a complex reality whereby humanity faces global challenges to do with a shared environment - global warming, a global economic order in the absence of significant global governance, international institutions which lack independence from the member states which comprise them, and the possibility of violence, whether using a car- or plane-bomb or nuclear weapons, in the name of whatever cause. Such realities raise major questions about the intellectual and moral resources available to humanity to deal with the challenges posed, and the topic of the common good has enjoyed an explosion of interest recently in various disciplines and in different areas of life.Patrick Riordan's timely study analyzes the concept of the common good as it is used in debates within political philosophy, economics, theology and most recently globalization, clarifying distinctions in definition and offering clarity and precision for a common language appropriate to debates on globalization.In recent years the study of the nature and function of religion with respect to politics has seen enormous changes. This important series provides a range of books devoted to furthering this study, and aimed at those studying and researching in this area across both disciplines.Titles in this series look specifically at the relationship between religion and political culture. Drawing upon a broad range of religious perspectives the series is open for studies of historical as well as current phenomena in political culture. It seeks not only to inform but to provoke debate at a time when religion is gaining increasing prominence in the public realm.

Miniature Crafts and Their Makers University of Arizona Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Picture a throng of tiny devils and angels, or a marching band so small it can fit in the palm of your hand. In a Mixtec town in the Mexican state of Puebla, craftspeople have been weaving palm since before the Spanish Conquest, but over the past forty years that art has become more finely tuned and has won national acceptance in a market nostalgic for an authentic Indian past. In this book, Katrin Flechsig offers the first in-depth ethnographic and historical examination of the miniature palm craft industry, taking readers behind the scenes of craft production in order to explain how and why these folk arts have undergone miniaturization over the past several decades. In describing this "Lilliputization of Mexico," she discusses the appeal of miniaturization, revealing how such factors as tourism and the construction of national identity have contributed to an ongoing demand for the tiny creations. She also contrasts the playfulness of the crafts with the often harsh economic and political realities of life in the community. Flechsig places the crafts of Chigmecatitlan within the contexts of manufacturing, local history, religion, design and technique, and selling. She tells how innovation is introduced into the craft, such as through the modification of foreign designs in response to market demands. She also offers insights into capitalist penetration of folk traditions, the marketing of folk arts, and economic changes in modern Mexico. And despite the fact that the designations "folk" and "Indian" help create a romantic fiction surrounding the craft. Flechsig dispels common misperceptions of the simplicity of this folk art by revealing the complexities involved in its creation. Morethan thirty illustrations depict not only finished miniatures but also the artists and their milieu. Today miniatures serve not only the tourist market; middle-class Mexicans also collect miniatures to such an extent that it has been termed a national pastime. Flechsig's wo

Savage Truth Grand Central Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Michael Savage is not a fan of the Obama administration. He believes that our current government is causing serious rifts among the American people regarding race, ethnicity, religion and income. In addition, as the government gets bigger and more intrusive, it is stepping on our civil liberties and constitutional rights. For example, as we are constantly bombarded with ideologically skewed misrepresentations of the importance of gun control in reducing mass killing, the U.S. Social Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security are purchasing billions of rounds of ammunition, including hollow point bullets so lethal they're banned by the Geneva Convention. In addition, DHS has ordered 2,700 light armored tanks to complement the billion-bullet purchase. What is this for? When asked about the ammunition purchases, member of Congress, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano declined to answer questions. The truth is needed in order to keep this administration from gaining control of the House of Representatives and keeping control of the Senate, and the mainstream will not help, they continue to block any news that does not support Obama's agenda. On the radio Michael Savage is a sounding board for many Americans and he will share what he hears from them in this book. Michael Savage hears the truth and speaks the truth nightly with his 10 million listeners. THE SAVAGE TRUTH lays out what we must do to take back control of our country peacefully, to liberate America by liberating the media and addressing the critical issues that we all face: the economy which continues to bankrupt the middle class and the future generations at an exponential pace; the state of our military; our culture, which is being attacked by Obama's immigration policies; education as the government takes over the student loan business and tuitions continue to skyrocket; and science and medicine, as Obamacare leaves the old and poor with doctors who won't take them and insurance for the middle class climbing to mind numbing rates and putting the final nail in the economic coffin of our country. From the dominance of our nation by a political/economic elite, to the transformation of our military into a weakened force loyal to the president and not to the people, to the emergence of a government determined to bypass the Constitution, Savage lays out what could happen to our country if the current administration is allowed to continue on this road. Then he presents the Savage Solutions, a strategy we must follow if we're to avoid the consequences of the takeover of our country that is in progress today.

Upper Egypt The American University in Cairo Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Upper Egypt (the Sa'id) is often portrayed as a source of disruption and unpredictability in the broader Egyptian system. Upper Egypt: Identity and Change corrects that image by laying out the order in the meaningful life of Upper Egyptians. That order is based on a strong sense of regional identity including also religious and family identity, and on the political, economic, religious, and family structures that provide the context for action by the people of this region. This timely collection of 14 contributions by anthropologists, historians, and others deals with such issues as the implications of a Sa'idi identity, the relationship between religion and society, the expanding universe from family to community to region and beyond to the world, and the place of villages, regions, and tribes in the regional structure. All of this is put within a context of change due to the effect of capitalism, the pressure from a national bureaucracy and elite, and the evolving notions of religious and regional identity. The book is aimed at scholars of social dynamics in the Middle East, including specialists in development, and at all those who are looking for a fresh approach to this marginalized area.

Black Sun NEW YORK UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

More than half a century after the defeat of Nazism and fascism, the far right is again challenging the liberal order of Western democracies. Radical movements are feeding on anxiety about economic globalization, affirmative action, and third-world immigration, flashpoint issues to many traditional groups in multicultural societies. A curious mixture of Aristocratic paganism, anti-Semitic demonology, Eastern philosophies and the occult is influencing populist antigovernment sentiment and helping to exploit the widespread fear that invisible elites are shaping world events. Black Sun examines the new neofascist ideology, showing how hate groups, militias and conspiracy cults attempt to gain influence. Based on interviews and extensive research into underground groups, Black Sun documents the new Nazi and fascist sects that have sprung up from the 1970s through the 1990s and examines the mentality and motivation of these far-right extremists. The result is a detailed, grounded portrait of the mythical and devotional aspects of Hitler cults among Aryan mystics, racist skinheads and Nazi satanists, Heavy Metal music fans, and in occult literature.Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke offers a unique perspective on far right neo-Nazism viewing it as a new form of Western religious heresy. He paints a frightening picture of a religion with its own relics, rituals, prophecies and an international sectarian following that could, under the proper conditions, gain political power and attempt to realize its dangerous millenarian fantasies.

Global Ethic for Global Politics and Economics - 2850281328

Global Ethic for Global Politics and Economics Oxford University Press Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

As the twentieth century draws to a close and the rush to globalization gathers momentum, political and economic considerations are crowding out vital ethical questions about the shape of our future. Now, Hans Kung, one of the world's preeminent Christian theologians, explores these issues in a visionary and cautionary look at the coming global society. How can the new world order of the twenty first century avoid the horrors of the twentieth? Will nations form a real community or continue to aggressively pursue their own interests? Will the Machiavellian approaches of the past prevail over idealism and a more humanitarian politics? What role can religion play in a world increasingly dominated by transnational corporations? Kung tackles these and many other questions with the insight and moral authority that comes from a lifetime's devotion to the search for justice and human dignity. Arguing against both an amoral realpolitik and an immoral resurgence of laissez faire economics, Kung defines a comprehensive ethic founded on the bedrock of mutual respect and humane treatment of all beings that would encompass the ecological, legal, technological, and social patterns that are reshaping civilization. If we are going to have a global economy, a global technology, a global media, Kung argues, we must also have a global ethic to which all nations, and peoples of the most varied backgrounds and beliefs, can commit themselves. "The world," he says, "is not going to be held together by the Internet." For anyone concerned about the world we are creating, A Global Ethic for Global Politics and Economics offers equal measures of informed analysis, compassionate foresight, and wise counsel.

Visions of the Emerald City - 2834149077

Visions of the Emerald City Duke University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"Visions of the Emerald City" is an absorbing historical analysis of how Mexicans living in Oaxaca City experienced "modernity" during the lengthy "Order and Progress" dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz (1876-1911). Renowned as the Emerald City (for its many buildings made of green cantera stone), Oaxaca City was not only the economic, political, and cultural capital of the state of Oaxaca but also a vital commercial hub for all of southern Mexico. As such, it was a showcase for many of Diaz's modernizing and state-building projects. Drawing on in-depth research in archives in Oaxaca, Mexico City, and the United States, Mark Overmyer-Velazquez describes how Oaxacans, both elites and commoners, crafted and manipulated practices of tradition and modernity to define themselves and their city as integral parts of a modern Mexico.Incorporating a nuanced understanding of visual culture into his analysis, Overmyer-Velazquez shows how ideas of modernity figured in Oaxacans' ideologies of class, race, gender, sexuality, and religion and how they were expressed in Oaxaca City's streets, plazas, buildings, newspapers, and public rituals. He pays particular attention to the roles of national and regional elites, the Catholic church, and popular groups - such as Oaxaca City's madams and prostitutes - in shaping the discourses and practices of modernity. At the same time, he illuminates the dynamic interplay between these groups. Ultimately, this well-illustrated history provides insight into provincial life in pre-revolutionary Mexico and challenges any easy distinctions between the centre and the periphery or modernity and tradition.

Global Pentecostalism: An Inquiry into the Cultural Dimensions of Globalization - 2836092804

Global Pentecostalism: An Inquiry into the Cultural Dimensions of Globalization GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Sociology - Religion, grade: 5.5, University of Bern, language: English, abstract: The birth and rapid global expansion of Pentecostal movements has led to widespread recognition of Pentecostalism as a major force in the Christian globalization enterprise, and a significant subset within the broader globalization movement.A main thread running through the study of global Pentecostalism, therefore, is its adaptability to the modern world system and, concomitantly its increasing visibility in the public sphere. Underlying the assertion of cultural adaptability is the assumption that the world s economic, political, and other societal structures have shifted (and continue to shift), and that Pentecostalism as a religious orientation has the ability to accommodate, or maybe even leverage, those shifts. Rather than just responding to globalization processes Pentecostalism acts on and actively shapes the dynamics of globalization, and thus can be viewed as yet another powerful force in the re-sacralization or re-enchantment of the world (cf. Csordas 2011). Put differently, Pentecostalism seems to be flexible and resilient enough to adapt to and be at home with both modernity and its elusive successor, post-modernity (Anderson 2004: 285).The central aim of this thesis is to understand Pentecostal ex-pansion within the theoretical framework of globalization and in terms of its internal religious characteristics. In my opinion, Pentecostalism can serve as a heuristic entry point to understand the complexity of cultural globalization processes more generally. With this end in mind and for this purpose, Pentecostalism is regarded as an ac-tive agent of globalization; as a transnational movement characterized by fluidity, innovation, and practicality within the context of an increasingly complex and plural world order, particularly in terms of the wider discourses on globalization.

It's All About Change Osho International

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Everyone, regardless of nationality, religion, or political beliefs, has a sense of the current crisis of planet Earth. The environmental movement has support around the globe, while politicians -- lagging behind reality -- are still fighting over whether global warming exists. Decision makers in government and in the private sector are dealing with the symptoms of this crisis, rather than addressing the underlying causes in a positive and constructive way. Osho points out that the current world crisis is a crisis of consciousness. Until there is a radical change in human consciousness, the interrelated social, political, economic, and ecological crises we face will continue. Osho's radical vision of change addresses how we can turn the present crisis into an opportunity, and what we must do in order to steer our course toward a "golden future" for all humankind and away from what he calls a "global suicide." Topics addressed in the book include the crisis of human values, the ecological crisis, the population challenge, the bankruptcy of the very concept of nations and religions, and the paths toward a creative science, meaningful education, and universal human rights.
