Abstract

Afterlives of Chinese Communism comprises essays from over fifty world- renowned scholars in the China field, from various disciplines and continents. It provides an indispensable guide for understanding how the Mao era continues to shape Chinese politics today. Each chapter discusses a concept or practice from the Mao period, what it attempted to do, and what has become of it since. The authors respond to the legacy of Maoism from numerous perspectives to consider what lessons Chinese communism can offer today, and whether there is a future for the egalitarian politics that it once promised.

Abstract

Este libro ofrece un panorama sobre la contribución de las poblaciones de origen africano en la construcción de sociedades mestizas (y creoles) en varios países de América Central y el Caribe. Lo " negro " , lejos de desaparecer con las aboliciones de la esclavitud y las independencias, se transforma, emerge y a veces se vuelve invisible. Tanto a nivel político como cultural, el mestizaje permite una desmultiplicación de las expresiones de la diferencia. Los autores de este libro, a partir de trabajos etnográficos o de archivos, cuestionan las políticas nacionales (Mark Anderson, Verene A. Shepherd), la permanencia y actualización de prácticas racistas (Peter Wade, Mónica G. Moreno Figueroa), las fronteras entre grupos (Anath Ariel de Vidas y Odile Hoffmann, Gabriel Izard), y las culturas de lo negro (Christian Rinaudo, Hettie Malcomson, Nahayeilli B. Juárez Huet).

Abstract

Western military presence wanes in Afghanistan and a transformed security environment challenges borders and stability in Central Asia. This book examines how the tensions relating to the reorganization of external military presence interact with regional states’ ambitions and challenge the borders already contested by numerous dividing lines. It studies a complex political landscape across which radical Islam connected with international terrorism is feared to spread as the international mission initiated in the wake of the 9/11 attacks winds down.

Abstract

Das Buch untersucht die umstrittene Institutionalisierung der schweizerischen Gleichstellungspolitik seit Mitte der 1990er Jahre vor allem im Bereich der Erwerbsarbeit und der staatlichen Gleichstellungsinstitutionen. Im Mittelpunkt steht die Frage, wie die politischen Steuerungsprinzipien miteinander verknüpft werden und ob sie Wirkung sowie Überzeugungskraft entfalten können. Alle politischen Akteurinnen und Akteure in der Schweiz bekennen sich rhetorisch zur Norm der Gleichstellung von Frau und Mann, doch die entsprechenden politischen Maßnahmen sind offenbar hoch umstritten: sie sind ausgesprochen vielfältig, aber ihnen fehlt in Bezug auf die Verteilung von Geld, Macht, Zeit und Anerkennung der nachhaltige Erfolg. Wie lässt sich das erklären? In der Forschung zur Gleichstellungspolitik wird seit einiger Zeit das Augenmerk verstärkt auf das Zusammenspiel und die Dynamiken der Maßnahmen untereinander gerichtet. Das Buch wendet diese Perspektive auf die Entwicklung der schweizerischen Gleichstellungspolitik seit Mitte der 1990er Jahre an.

Abstract

Few crimes capture the interest and attention of the public as sexual driven crime. Relapsing sex offenders especially spark debates on how best to deal with this particular group. Incidents of serious sexual crimes are, fortunately, rare in Germany which partly complicates empirical research into sexual criminality. This study aims to contribute to an understanding of sexual crimes by providing an overview of such offences in Germany by nature of the offence, offender-types, penalties and (partially) criminal careers from the perspective of judicial oversight of sexual crime. The study examines 9,430 sexual offenders from all over Germany based on data from the Federal Central Criminal Register where either custodial sentences were served or non-custodial sanctions imposed in the base year. It tracks the sample group over six years comparing their outcomes with other non-sexual offender types.

Abstract

In October 2014 about thirty scholars from Asia and Europe came together for a conference to discuss different kinds of sources for the research on Central Asia. From museum collections and ancient manuscripts to modern newspapers and pulp fiction and the wind horses flying against the blue sky of Mongolia there was a wide range of topics. Modern data processing and data management and the problems of handling five different languages and scripts for a dictionary project were leading us into the modern digital age. The dominating theme of the whole conference was the importance of collections of source material found in libraries and archives, their preservation and expansion for future generations of scholars. Some of the finest presentations were selected for this volume and are now published for a wider audience.

Abstract

Il teatro yiddish è una fiorente anche se breve civiltà teatrale fiorita tra l’Otto e il Novecento, che ha accompagnato milioni di ebrei dell’Europa centrale e orientale nelle nuove dislocazioni in tutto il mondo. Era un popolo in fuga da persecuzioni e miseria, alla ricerca di benessere e felicità, un popolo che si chiedeva se e come fosse possibile conciliare tradizioni e valori millenari con la modernità. Il teatro yiddish si è sviluppato in dialogo con l’operetta, il melodramma e il teatro borghese del tempo, creando proprie forme del tutto originali, soprattutto il cosiddetto grottesco yiddish. Popolare e sperimentale, attraversato dalla musica e dal canto, soprattutto espressione di grandi attrici e attori che ispiravano i drammaturghi e si confrontavano spregiudicatamente con i grandi autori del passato, il teatro yiddish ha poi cessato di esistere soltanto in apparenza, perché - come qui si dimostra - ha irradiato con le proprie invenzioni recitative, drammaturgiche e registiche il teatro e il cinema di oggi nelle sue migliori espressioni sia popolari che d’avanguardia.

Abstract

Esta obra se ocupa de una generación y de una corriente particular del universo cultural judío de la Mitteleuropa: una generación de intelectuales nacidos en el curso del último cuarto del siglo XIX, cuyos escritos beben al mismo tiempo de fuentes alemanas (romanticismo) y judías (mesianismo). Se articula en torno a la idea judía (cabalística) de Tikkoun, la redención. Algunos de ellos estuvieron orientados hacia la religión: Martín Buber, Gershom Scholem, Franz Rosenzweig. Otros, por el contrario, se sintieron atraídos por las utopías sociales: Ernst Bloch. Gyorgy Lukács, Erich Fromm. Entre ambos, más allá de todas las corrientes y en el cruce de todos los caminos: Franz Kafka y Walter Benjamín. A pesar de todas sus diferencias, hay entre ellos una impresionante comunidad espiritual, fundada sobre la afinidad electiva entre la redención mesiánica y la utopía libertaria.
