13 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores the phenomenon of Americanization and its worldwide impact, and the cultural consequences of globalization.

Case studies follow on France, Japan and China, and there are six chapters on transnational processes as they affect culture and society. An epilogue reflects on definitions of Americanization and anti-Americanism, and their consequences for the world
The compassionate temperament : care and cruelty in modern society by Natan Sznaider( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The argument of this book is that it is in the nature of modernity to foster compassion. Most critics tend to think of modernity as corrosive of moral sentiments. They see clearly the way in which modernity breaks down older social bonds, but they are much less attentive to the ways in which it also builds new ones. This book offers a historically informed corrective to this common view
Human rights and memory by Daniel Levy( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examines the foundations of human rights, how their political and cultural validation in a global context is posing challenges to nation-state sovereignty, and how they become an integral part of international relations and are institutionalized into domestic legal and political practices"--Provided by publisher
Jewish memory and the cosmopolitan order : Hannah Arendt and the Jewish condition by Natan Sznaider( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Natan Sznaider offers a highly original account of Jewish memory and politics before and after the Holocaust. It seeks to recover an aspect of Jewish identity that has been almost completely lost today - namely, that throughout much of their history Jews were both a nation and cosmopolitan, they lived in a constant tension between particularism and universalism. And it is precisely this tension, which Sznaider seeks to capture in his innovative conception of "rooted cosmopolitanism", that is increasingly the destiny of all peoples today. The book pays special attention to Jewish intellectuals who played an important role in advancing universal ideas out of their particular identities. The central figure in this respect is Hannah Arendt and her concern to build a better world out of the ashes of the Jewish catastrophe. The book demonstrates how particular Jewish affairs are connected to current concerns about cosmopolitan politics like human rights, genocide, international law and politics. Jewish identity and universalist human rights were born together, developed together and are still fundamentally connected. -- Publisher description

Gedächtnisraum Europa : die Visionen des europäischen Kosmopolitismus : eine jüdische Perspektive by Natan Sznaider( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in German and English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kosmopolitismus"- eine gross Idee mit langer Begriffsgeschichte, die bis zu den Hellenen zurückreicht, wird wieder aktuell: Das Europa des 21. Jahrhunderts definiert sich kosmopolitisch. Kosmopolitische Gedächtniskulturen orientieren sich an universalen Symbolen wie der" Allgemeinen Erklärung der Menschenrechte"und dem Begriff des" Verbrechens gegen die Menschheit"- Schlagworte, die sich gerade in Europa nach der konkreten historischen Erfahrung des Mordes an den europäischen Juden als politische Grundbegriffe formierten. Unter Bezug auf die Schriften von Hannah Arendt zeigt der Essay, wie sich zurzeit besonders in Europa eine neue kosmopolitische Sprache und Wirklichkeit herausbildet, die sich ohne Rückgriff auf das jüdische Gedächtnis über den Judenmord definieren will. Als jüdische Weltbürgerin wollte sich Arendt weder nach nationalstaatlicher Manier integrieren noch blindes Vertrauen in die politische Souveränität der Nationalstaaten setzen. In ihren jüdischen Schriften artikulierte sie den Raum, der zwischen dem Dazugehören zu einer partikularen politischen Gemeinschaft und der Universalität der Menschenrechte liegt. Mit ihrer Hilfe erschließt dieses Buch die Möglichkeit eines jüdischen Kosmopolitismus
Memory and forgetting in the post-Holocaust era : the ethics of never again by Alejandro Baer( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The study of memory is too often pervaded with a spatially-fixed understanding of culture. The idea of culture as 'rooted' was an attempt to provide a solution to the uprooting of local cultures caused by the formation of nation-states. Conversely, Sznaider and Baer contend that there exist travelling/cosmopolitan or multi-directional memories, based on experiences originating in a specific place, but which move and travel from there to other ones. Using the Holocaust as an example, the authors show how memories of it are disseminated and how they become part of a larger global framework. There are four ways the Holocaust can be universalized: was it the Jews, or many different peoples that suffered? Is the lesson 'never again', for the Jews, or for everyone? Were the Nazis uniquely evil, or only different in quantity from other mass murderers? Who remembers and who has the right to pronounce the truth of the Holocaust? Taking Argentina and Spain as test cases and looking at public media, scholarly discourse, NGOs dealing with human rights and memory, museums and memorial sites, this book follows these four ways of universalization to illustrate the transformation from the national to the cosmopolitan ethics of overcoming the past. Both case-studies show that this ethics is not only pertinent to Europe and the places that are directly related to the Holocaust, but proves that that memory does indeed travel."--Provided by publisher

Globales Amerika? : die kulturellen Folgen der Globalisierung( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seit einigen Jahren wird in den Sozial- und Kulturwissenschaften international kaum ein Phänomen so lebhaft diskutiert wie das der Globalisierung. Nachdem die zu Anfang vorherrschende Sichtweise von Globalisierung als Entwicklung einer homogenen Weltkultur zunehmend an Evidenz verlor, rücken die lokal unterschiedlichen kulturellen Praktiken und Perspektiven als Teil von Globalisierung ins Zentrum des Interesses. Diese Neujustierung des Fokus erlaubt auch längst überfällige neue Lesarten des vermeintlich einfachen Verhältnisses von »Amerikanisierung« und Globalisierung. Dabei wird deutlich, dass die oft als »Amerikanisierung« wahrgenommene Globalisierung weltweit heterogene Resonanzen erzeugt, hybride Kulturen, Fluchtlinien und Gegenbewegungen treten gleichermaßen hervor. Der Band »Globales Amerika«, in dem sich einige der prominentesten Denker der Globalisierung zu Wort melden, präsentiert anregende Lektüren dieser bislang wenig beleuchteten Seite der Globalisierung und leistet damit einen wichtigen Beitrag zum Verständnis des Problems insgesamt. Für das 21. Jahrhundert erweist sich die Perspektive eines »methodologischen Kosmopolitismus« (Ulrich Beck) als richtungsweisend
