Abstract

Voici, pour les langues d'Europe, le temps de la coexistence et des choix, des ententes et des compromis, dans un espace en expansion géographique mais aussi en concurrence avec le monde anglo-saxon. Issues, pour la plupart d'entre elles, des mêmes racines indo-européennes, elles n'ont cessé de se différencier dans le temps et l'espace de leur croissance, même si quelques-unes restent apparentées. Comment dès lors, dans une communauté européenne aux langues multiples, passer de Babel à Pentec...

Abstract

Wurden die Grundeinstellungen europäischer Bürger bisher fast exklusiv durch quantitative Methoden beobachtet und erklärt, so geht die in diesem Buch vorgestellte international vergleichende Studie einen anderen Weg: Das Ziel der von 2006 bis 2009 durchgeführten Erhebungen war es, genauere qualitative Untersuchungstechniken einzusetzen, um so die Komplexität und Vielfalt der Wahrnehmungen und Reaktionen der "Normalbürger" besser wiederzugeben. Ein wichtiger Beitrag zur Vielfalt der Einstellungen zu Europa und zur Erklärung der allgemeinen Distanz der meisten Bürger in Bezug auf die EU.(aus dem Französischen von Frank Weigand und Markus Merz)

Abstract

In the light of the deepening crisis of capitalism and continued non-Western capitalist accumulation, Henry Heller re-examines the debates surrounding the transition from feudalism to capitalism in Europe and elsewhere.Focusing on arguments about the origin, nature and sustainability of capitalism, Heller offers a new reading of the historical evidence and a critical interrogation of the transition debate. He advances the idea that capitalism must be understood as a political as well as an economic entity. This book breathes new life into the scholarship, taking issue with the excessively economistic approach of Robert Brenner, which has gained increasing support over the last ten years. It concludes that the future of capitalism is more threatened than ever before.The new insights in this book make it essential reading for engaged students and scholars of political economy and history.

Abstract

As an American author who chose to live in Europe, Henry James frequently wrote about cultural differences between the Old and New World. The plight of bewildered Americans adrift on a sea of European sophistication became a regular theme in his fiction.This collection of twenty-four papers from some of the world’s leading James scholars offers a comprehensive picture of the author’s cross-cultural aesthetics. It provides detailed analyses of James’s perception of Europe—of its people and places, its history and culture, its artists and thinkers, its aesthetics and its ethics—which ultimately lead to a profound reevaluation of his writing.
