May '68 and its afterlives by Kristin Ross( Book )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During May 1968, students and workers in France united in the biggest strike and the largest mass movement in French history. Protesting capitalism, American imperialism, and Gaullism, 9 million people from all walks of life, from shipbuilders to department store clerks, stopped working. The nation was paralyzed - no sector of the workplace was untouched. Yet, just thirty years later, the mainstream image of May '68 in France has become that of a mellow youth revolt, a cultural transformation stripped of its violence and profound sociopolitical implications." "Kristin Ross shows how the current official memory of May '68 came to serve a political agenda antithetical to the movement's aspirations. She examines the roles played by sociologists, repentant ex-student leaders, and the mainstream media in giving what was a political event a predominantly cultural and ethical meaning."--Jacket

Anti-Americanism by Andrew Ross( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since George Washington warned against "foreign entanglements" in his 1796 farewell speech, the United States has wrestled with how to act toward other countries. Consequently, the history of anti-Americanism is as long and varied as the history of the United States. In this multidisciplinary collection, seventeen leading thinkers provide substance and depth to the recent outburst of fast talk on the topic of anti-Americanism by analyzing its history and currency in five key global regions: the Middle East, Latin America, Europe, East Asia, and the United States. The commentary draws from social science as well as the humanities for an in-depth study of anti-American opinion and sentiment in different cultures. The questions raised by these essays force us to explore the new ways America must interact with the world after 9/11 and the war against Iraq

The economic assessment of vertical restraints under UK and EC competition law by Mat Hughes( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This article considers the underlying source of controversy over public policy towards vertical restraints. It examines the benefits and anti-competitive effects of vertical restraints and the issues raised by the treatment of such in the United Kingdom and the EU - particularly in the light of the vertical restraints block exemption and proposals to withdraw the United Kingdom exclusion of vertical agreements."--Editor
Democracy in what state? by Giorgio Agamben( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concentrating on the classical roots of democracy and its changing meaning over time and within different contexts, these essays uniquely defend what is left of the left-wing tradition after the fall of Soviet communism. They confront disincentives to active democratic participation that have caused voter turnout to decline in Western countries, and they address electoral indifference by invoking and reviving the tradition of citizen involvement. Passionately written and theoretically rich, this collection speaks to all facets of modern political and democratic debate. --Book Jacket
Radical empathy: The Third World and the New Left in 1960s West Germany by Quinn Slobodian( Book )

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

Scholars and former activists have dismissed the West German New Left's relationship to the Third World in the 1960s as misguided identification and a projection of their own revolutionary fantasies. This dissertation provides an alternative narrative, making three primary interventions in the historiography. I begin by exploring how concrete collaboration with African, Asian and Latin American students on West German university campuses helped catalyze and organize the activism of West German students. I direct attention to the centrality of decolonization struggles and challenge the emerging scholarly consensus that places the origins of the transnational 1960s in the United States

The cocoons of language, the betrayals of silence: Contemporary Syrian prison literature, human rights discourse, and literary experimentalism by Shareah Taleghani( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on different theorizations of genre, the first chapter elaborates on the ties between the truth effects of prison literature and the truth claims of human rights. The second chapter explores how vulnerability and recognition are intermeshed in both human rights discourse and in the short stories of various Syrian authors. Beginning with the issue of "extraordinary rendition," the third chapter analyzes depictions of torture in different works of Syrian prison literature and demonstrates how different author's interrogate and at times efface torture's representation. The fourth chapter focuses on the prison chronotope--the variegated portrayals of and reflections on prison time and prison space in different works of prison literature as well as human rights reports. The final chapter turns to the issue of the relationship between writing and detention; it discusses the heavy prevalence of metafictional tendencies in works of Syrian prison literature as a mode of questioning the seeming narrative transparencies of human rights discourse
Realism, violence and representation of migrants and minorities in contemporary Europe by Ipek Azime Celik( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation also traces a significant renewal of the realist mode in European literature and film. An emergent form of realism extends representation to previously excluded social groups, and responds to migrant and minority association with violence in the news media by narrating the larger social conditions for violence through their "subjective" stories, and by pointing out how the images of victimhood and criminality perpetuate the liberal contradiction between humanitarianism on the one hand, and ruthlessness in defense of security on the other

Human rights and revolutions by Jeffrey N Wasserstrom( )

Now in a revised and updated edition with added original chapters, this acclaimed book provides an interdisciplinary perspective on the complex links between revolutionary struggles and human rights. Covering events as far removed from one another as the English Civil War, the Parisian upheavals of 1789, Latin American independence struggles, and protests in late twentieth-century China, the contributors explore the paradoxes of revolutions that have both helped spur new advances in thinking about human rights and produced regimes that commit a range of abuses. Exploring the changes over time
