Abstract

In an age of political and economic uncertainty, from the Great Recession to the election of Donald Trump, it is essential to understand the ways capitalism and imperialism are central to the American way of life.The story told in this book brings together a new interpretation of American history beyond mainstream perspectives to chart the ways in which white-settler colonialism pushed expansion on the western frontier of empire, and locates the history through which empire gradually took on a capitalist form.It follows the pathway of expansion from the making of an Atlantic world market through the creation of white colonies in New England and Virginia. From here the book charts the growth of empire across the north and south, highlighting the gendered dynamics of empire-building, and culminates in a discussion of the Civil War and the consolidation of over two centuries of capitalist development explaining how a society with capitalism became a capitalist society.

Abstract

Wie gelingt es migrantischen Jugendlichen, zu politischen Subjekten zu werden und für ihre Rechte einzutreten? Wie ist es möglich, sich Herrschaftsverhältnissen zu widersetzen und inwiefern bietet Demokratie hierbei einen Bezugspunkt? Helge Schwiertz geht diesen Fragen nach, indem er eine radikaldemokratische Theorie entwickelt und diese mit einer qualitativen Studie zur Selbstorganisierung migrantischer Jugendlicher in Deutschland und den USA verbindet. Durch den Dialog von Empirie und Theorie trägt er damit sowohl zu einem differenzierten Verständnis migrantischer Kämpfe als auch zu demokratietheoretischen Debatten bei und zeigt auf, wie Grenzen demokratisiert werden können.
