Can liberal pluralism be exported? : Western political theory and ethnic relations in Eastern Europe by Will Kymlicka( )

28 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 2,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many post-communist countries in Central/Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union are being encouraged and indeed pressured by Western countries to improve their treatment of ethnic and national minorities, and to adopt Western models of minority rights. But what are these Western models, and will they work in Eastern Europe? In the first half of this volume, Will Kymlicka describes a model of 'liberal pluralism' which has gradually emerged in most Western democracies, and discusses what would be involved in adopting it in Eastern Europe. This is followed by 15 commentaries from people actively involved in minority rights issues in the region, as practitioners or academics, and by Kymlicka's reply. This volume will be of interest to anyone concerned with ethnic conflict in Eastern Europe, and with the more general question of whether Western liberal values can or should be promoted in the rest of the world
Poles, Jews, socialists : the failure of an ideal( )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Socialist ideals of brotherhood, equality, and justice have exercised a strong attraction for many Jews. On the Polish lands, Jews were drawn to Socialism when the liberal promise of integration into the emergent national entities of east and central Europe as Poles or Lithuanians or Russians of the Hebrew faith seemed to be falling. For those Jews seeking emancipation from discrimination and the constraints of a religious community, Socialism offered a tantalizing new route to integration in a wider society. Some Jews saw in Socialism a secularized version of the age-old Jewish messianic longing, while others were driven to the Socialist movement by poverty and the hope that it would supply their material needs. But in Poland as elsewhere in Europe, Socialism failed to transcend national divisions. The articles in this volume of Polin investigate the failure of this ideal and its consequences for Jews on the Polish lands, examining Socialist attitudes to the 'Jewish question', the use of antisemitism, how the growth of Socialism affected relationships between Poles and Jews, and the character of Jewish Socialist groups in Poland. The result is a significant contribution to the history of Jews in Poland. It also sheds light on the history of Socialism in east-central Europe and the complexity of national problems there
Poles and Jews : a failed brotherhood by Magdalena Opalski( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comparative study of Polish and Jewish literary responses to the January 1863 uprising in Poland. Poles and Jews participated together in the revolt, despite the Jewish tradition of loyalty to the Tsar. Deals with the literary image of the Jew in Polish literature and of the Poles in Jewish (Hebrew and Yiddish) literature in the second half of the 19th century. Discusses mutual stereotypes and the attempts to overcome them, citing, among others, Józef Kraszewski's novels. Shows how the uprising's failure transformed the Polish attitude towards the Jews from enthusiasm to ambivalence, and how conflicting interpretations by Poles and Jews of the "brotherhood" of the 1860s influenced Polish-Jewish relations in the years before World War I
The Jewish tavern-keeper and his tavern in nineteenth-century Polish literature by Magdalena Opalski( Book )

7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the image of the Jewish innkeeper in over 120 Polish literary works, mainly novels and plays produced between 1820-1905. At first, the Jew was portrayed as a mythical figure, linking the peasants with the outside world and the forces of darkness. He deceives the peasant and manipulates him to encourage his drunkenness - a reflection of the press debate of the 1820s on the cause of peasant drunkenness. As the only source of goods and credit, he is viewed with suspicion but also seen as essential to and rooted in society. After a short period of more positive images, after the 1863 uprising, Jews were again seen as agents of capitalism acting to exploit the nobles' difficulties and to dispossess the Poles. By the end of the 19th century, the tavern-keeper is shown leaving for the town and losing his typical characteristics. In popular plays for rural audiences, however, he remained a stock character
