Legal integration of Islam : a transatlantic comparison by Christian Joppke( )

15 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The status of Islam in Western societies remains deeply contentious. Countering strident claims on both the right and left, Legal Integration of Islam offers an empirically informed analysis of how four liberal democracies - France, Germany, Canada, and the United States - have responded to the challenge of integrating Islam and Muslim populations. Demonstrating the centrality of the legal system to this process, Christian Joppke and John Torpey reject the widely held notion that Europe is incapable of accommodating Islam and argue that institutional barriers to Muslim integration are no greater on one side of the Atlantic than the other. While Muslims have achieved a substantial degree of equality working through the courts, political dynamics increasingly push back against these gains, particularly in Europe. From a classical liberal viewpoint, religion can either be driven out of public space, as in France, or included without sectarian preference, as in Germany. But both policies come at a price - religious liberty in France and full equality in Germany. Often seen as the flagship of multiculturalism, Canada has found itself responding to nativist and liberal pressures as Muslims become more assertive. And although there have been outbursts of anti-Islamic sentiment in the United States, the legal and political recognition of Islam is well established and largely uncontested. Legal Integration of Islam brings to light the successes and the shortcomings of integrating Islam through law without denying the challenges that this religion presents for liberal societies"--Unedited summary from book jacket

Immigration and the nation-state : the United States, Germany, and Great Britain by Christian Joppke( )

25 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 1,530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study, Professor Joppke compares the post-war politics of immigration control and immigrant integration in the United States, Germany, and Britain - three liberal states characterized by sharply distinct nationhood traditions and immigration experiences. Mapping out the many variations between these cases, Immigration and the Nation-State focuses on the impact of immigration in the two key areas of sovereignty and citizenship. The first part analyses the effect of immigration on state sovereignty, arguing that with respect to immigration control liberal states are self-limited by interest-group pluralism, autonomous legal systems, and moral obligations toward particular immigrant groups - the weight of these factors differing across particular cases
Immigrant integration in federal countries by Christian Joppke( )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comparison of immigrant integration policies in seven federal countries in light of constitutional structures, ethno-cultural composition and political trends
Controlling a new migration world by Virginie Guiraudon( )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers in this collection examine the efforts of western states to control international migration. They describe the new strategies and instruments of control that migrant-receiving states have devised to cope with new forms of migration that deviate fundamentally from classic, settlement-oriented immigration: illegal migration, mass asylum-seeking, circular migration, and organized human smuggling. In examining the factors and interests that shape immigration policies, they seek to determine whether states' control policies are effectively containing – or only redirecting – unwanted migration flows?
Multicultural questions by Christian Joppke( Book )

27 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume assembles leading scholars from a wide range of disciplines and countries to debate multiculturalism in theory and practice. The volume is grouped around four central questions raised by multiculturalism: (1) Is universalism ethnocentric? (2) Does multiculturalism threaten citizenship? (3) Do minorities require group rights? And (4) What can Europe learn from North America? The answers delivered in this book seek to move the debate about multiculturalism from a polemical into a more analytical mode. This book suggests a Burkean stance toward multiculturalism, in which it is 'circumstances' that render 'every civil and political scheme beneficial or noxious to mankind'."--Jacket
East German dissidents and the revolution of 1989 : social movement in a Leninist regime by Christian Joppke( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Christian Joppke's study of the East German dissidents deserves to be a classic in political sociology. The author's mastery of the relevant theoretical literature is dazzling. Add to this his meticulous research and complete command of a complex empirical case, and you have all the ingredients for a truly exceptional book. Joppke's work is as relevant to the student of modern Germany as it is to those interested in the comparative politics of social movements, the European left and nationalism. Rarely have I seen a case study of such far-reaching theoretical as well as political implication as Joppke's."--Andrei S. Markovits, Professor and Chair Board of Studies in Politics University of California, Santa Cruz "An excellent book. Joppke not only succeeds in presenting a very nuanced, and clearly written, account of the social and intellectual forces that led to the GDR's fall. He also provides an admirable synthesis of much of what we know about the East European expression of Leninism, from the big experiments of the 1950s to the big bang of 1989."--A. James McAdams, University of Notre Dame While the dissident movements of Eastern Europe were abandoning communism in pursuit of visions of liberal democracy, the East German movement continued to struggle for reform within the communist movement. In East German Dissidents and the Revolution of 1989, Christian Joppke explains this anomaly in compelling narrative detail. He argues that the peculiarities of German history and culture prevented the possibility of a national opposition to communism. Lured by the regime's proclaimed antifascism, East German dissidents had to remain in a paradoxical way loyal to the opposed regime. The definitive study of East German opposition, Joppke's work also presents an overview of opposition in communist systems in general, providing both a model of social movements within Leninist regimes and a balance to current revisionist histories of the GDR. East German Dissidents and the Revolution of 1989 will be of interest to scholars and students of social movements, revolution, German politics and society, the East European transformation, and communist systems."

Citizenship and immigration by Christian Joppke( Book )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a succinct overview of the new academic field of citizenship and immigration, as well as presenting a fresh and original argument about changing citizenship in our contemporary human rights era." "Instead of being nationally resilient or in postnational decline, citizenship in Western states has continued to evolve, converging on a liberal model of inclusive citizenship with diminished rights implications and increasingly universalistic identities. This convergence is demonstrated through a sustained comparison of developments in North America, Western Europe, and Australia. Topics covered in the book include: recent trends in nationality laws; what ethnic diversity does to social citizenship; the decline of multiculturalism yet continuing rise of antidiscrimination policies; and the new state campaigns to upgrade and renationalize citizenship in the post-2001 period"--Provided by publisher

The secular state under siege : religion and politics in Europe and America by Christian Joppke( Book )

17 editions published in 2015 in English and Swedish and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout human history, religion and politics have entertained the most intimate of connections as systems of authority regulating individuals and society. While the two have come apart through the process of secularization, secularism is challenged today by the return of public religion. This cogent analysis unravels the nature of the connection, disconnection, and attempted reconnection between religion and politics in the West. In a comparison of Western Europe and North America, Christianity and Islam, Joppke advances far-reaching theoretical, historical, and comparative-political arguments. With respect to theory, it is argued that only a "substantive" concept of religion, as pertaining to the existence of supra-human powers, opens up the possibility of a historical-comparative perspective on religion. At the level of history, secularization is shown to be the distinct outcome of Latin Christianity itself. And at the level of comparative politics, the Christian Right in America which has attacked the "wall of separation" between religion and state and Islam in Europe with the controversial insistence on sharia law and other "illiberal" claims from some quarters are taken to be counterpart incarnations of public religion and challenges to the secular state. This clearly argued, sweeping book will provide an invaluable framework for approaching an array of critical issues at the intersection of religion, law and politics for advanced students and researchers across the social sciences and legal studies, as well as for the interested public"--
Toward assimilation and citizenship : immigrants in liberal nation-states by Christian Joppke( Book )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book surveys a new trend in immigration studies: the turn away from multicultural and postnational perspectives toward a renewed emphasis on assimilation and citizenship. Most scholarship in the past decade, enticed by the discovery of "globalization" has argued that multiculturalism has replaced assimilation as the dominant mode of immigrant integration and that "postnational" or "transnational" identities and allegiances have devalued or even rendered obselete traditional citizenship. This volume challenges the orthodoxy in two directions, one discussing changing state policies, the other discussing migrant practices and adjustments. With respect to state policies, the book argues that citizenship has remained the dominant membership category in liberal nation-states. Moreover, the scope of multicultural policies has either been exaggerated in public and academic perception, or - where such policies were once in place - there has recently been a covert or overt move away from them. With respect to migrant practices and adjustments, the book argues that migrants are simultaneously assimilating and transnationalizing."--Jacket
Is multiculturalism dead? : crisis and persistence in the constitutional state by Christian Joppke( Book )

14 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multiculturalism is controversial in the liberal state and has frequently been declared dead, even in countries that have never had a policy under that name. This authoritative book reviews the different meanings multiculturalism has acquired across theories, countries, and domains to investigate the extent of its demise and the ways in which it lives on. Christian Joppke cogently argues that, beyond the ebb and flow of policy, liberal constitutionalism itself bears out a multiculturalism of the individual that is not only alive but necessary in a liberal society. Through a provocative comparison of homosexuality in the United States and Islam in Europe, he shows that liberal constitutionalism constrains majority power, requiring the state to be neutral about people's values and ethical commitment. It cannot but give rise to multiple ways of life or cultures, as people are endowed with the freedom to embrace them. Accordingly, impulses towards multiculturalism persist, but with a new accent on the individual, rather than groups, as the unit of integration
Der säkulare Staat auf dem Prüfstand Religion und Politik in Europa und den USA by Christian Joppke( )

4 editions published in 2018 in German and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die muslimische Migration in Europa und der wachsende Einfluss der "Christlichen Rechten" in den USA stellen parallele Herausforderungen für den säkularen Staat auf beiden Seiten des Nordatlantiks dar, so der Befund des Soziologen Christian Joppke. Wie kann der Staat sich von Religion freihalten, ohne das Recht auf Religionsfreiheit anzutasten - insbesondere, wenn Religion gegen die Grundsätze des liberalen Staates verstößt, wie etwa gegen Menschenrechte und Gleichbehandlung? In seiner aufschlussreichen und provokativen Studie beschreibt der Autor sowohl auf politischer wie rechtlicher Ebene die Probleme, die sich säkulare Staaten durch das Comeback von "öffentlicher Religion" stellen
