Muslim Democratic Parties in the Middle East: Economy and Politics of Islamist Moderation

A. Kadir Yildirim

Muslim Democratic Parties in the Middle East: Economy and Politics of Islamist Moderation by A. Kadir YildirimA.Kadir Yildirim and other scholars have used the term "Muslim Democrat" to describe moderate Islamist political parties, suggesting a parallel with Christian Democratic parties in Europe. These parties (MDPs) are marked by their adherence to a secular political regime, normative commitment to the rules of a democratic political system, and the democratic political representation of a religious identity. In this book, Yildirim draws on extensive field research in Turkey, Egypt, and Morocco to examine this phenomenon and assess the interaction of economic and political factors in the development...

A. Pablo Iannone

City Life from Jakarta to Dakar: Movements at the Crossroads

AbdouMaliq Simone

City Life from Jakarta to Dakar: Movements at the Crossroads by AbdouMaliq Simone

City Life from Jakarta to Dakar focuses on the politics incumbent to this process - an "anticipatory politics" - that encompasses a wide range of practices, calculations and economies. As such, the book is not a collection of case studies on a specific theme, not a review of developmental problems, nor does it marshal the focal cities as evidence of particular urban trends. Rather, it examines how possibilities, perhaps inherent in these cities all along, are materialized through the everyday projects of residents situated in the city and the larger world in very different ways.

Democracy by Decree: Prospects and Limits of Imposed Consociational Democracy in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Adis Merdzanovic

Democracy by Decree: Prospects and Limits of Imposed Consociational Democracy in Bosnia and Herzegovina by Adis MerdzanovicThe introduction of consociational power sharing as a post-war political system has become one of the international community's preferred post-conflict devices. In situations where warring polities are internally divided by ethnic, religious, linguistic, or national identity, consociationalism guarantees the inclusion of all groups in the political process and prevents a ‘tyranny' of the majority over one or more minorities. However, if international actors keep intervening in the political process, the advantages of consociationalism are turned upside down.

In this exceptional book, Adis Merdzanovic...

Globalization and the Health of Indigenous Peoples: From Colonization to Self-Rule

Ahsan Ullah

Globalization and the Health of Indigenous Peoples: From Colonization to Self-Rule by Ahsan Ullah

In 70 countries worldwide, there is an estimated 370 million indigenous peoples, and their rich diversity of cultures, religions, traditions, languages and histories has been significant source of our scholarships. However, the health status of this population group is far below than that of non-indigenous populations by all standards. Could the persisting reluctance to understand the influence of self-governance, globalization and social determinants of health in the lives of these people be deemed as a contributor to the poor health of indigenous peoples?

Within this volume, Ullah explores...

The Political Economy of Space in the Americas: The New Pax Americana

Alejandra Roncallo

Who Really Runs the World? The War Between Globalization and Democracy

Alex Games & Thom Burnett

Who Really Runs the World? The War Between Globalization and Democracy by Alex Games & Thom BurnettThe world is a mess. It's constantly at war, things cost too much, and the average person struggles to survive against powers they can barely see, let alone control. It appears so at odds with common sense, in fact, that it begs a fundamental question: Who runs the world? This book looks at the conspiracies in everyday life, both hidden and not-so-hidden. It examines actual people, businesses, social networks, corporate alliances, and the dark forces of conspiracy and secret history that hold them together. The conclusions reached may shock and scandalize some people—especially those who fervently...

Dialectics, Politics, and the Contemporary Value of Hegel's Practical Philosophy

Andrew Buchwalter

Dialectics, Politics, and the Contemporary Value of Hegel's Practical Philosophy by Andrew Buchwalter

This book explores and details the actuality (Aktualität) of Hegel's social and political philosophy--its relevance, topicality, and contemporary validity. It asserts--against the assumptions of those in a wide range of traditions--that Hegel's thought not only remains relevant to debates in current social and political theory, but is capable of productively enhancing and enriching those debates. The book is divided into three main sections. Part 1 considers the actuality of Hegel's social and political thought in the context of a constructed dialogues with later social and political theorists,...
