Nationalist myths and modern media : contested identities in the age of globalization by Jan Herman Brinks( )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fascinating look at the role of the media in fostering nationalism, with a comparative approach that shows the interactions between American, Russian and German nationalism. Extreme nationalism is a subject of enormous contemporary significance today. Does patriotic pride inevitably develop into nationalistic aggression? Is this exacerbated by the global outreach of the media? And what is the relationship between mainstream politics and increasingly vocal far-right groups in Britain, the US, Germany and Russia? This book addresses these questions from a variety of angles, exploring topics ra

Children of a new fatherland : Germany's post-war right-wing politics by Jan Herman Brinks( Book )

23 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of the growth of the right wing in a reunited Germany. Since the end of the Cold War, an explosion of xenophobia and attacks on foreigners - some of them asylum-seekers - has attracted world-wide media attention. Coming after the seemingly miraculous celebration of freedom accompanying the fall of the Berlin Wall and the country's reunification, these events have caused acute anxiety within Germany itself. These phenomena are not exclusive to Germany, but their undertones of Nazism have prompted the question: how could this happen in a country that had so firmly repudiated its

The Netherlands and Islam : towards a new identity? by Jan Herman Brinks( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past decade, the political and economical elites of the Netherlands have increasingly had to face each other. Politicians, scholars, and the media usually are in favour of a multi-cultural society and advocate cultural relativism. They consider Islam as a religion among others and support the enlargement and deepening of the European Union. 00Diametrically opposed to them, a considerable section of the population is against a dreaded European super state in which Islam plays a prominent role. These Dutch distrust their politicians and the media; they are ill-disposed towards Islam and fear the loss of their national identity. Quite often they vote for the Partij voor de Vrijheid (Party for Freedom, PVV) led by the right-wing populist Geert Wilders. For these voters not only the nation-state, but their world view is at stake
The Dutch, the Germans and the Jews by Jan Herman Brinks( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When I wrote 'The Dutch, the Germans and the Jews', I did not realize that the article was to become so controversial. With regard to the wartime record of the Netherlands, the Dutch had, over the years, constructed a national image of heroic resistance against the German occupier. This image was complemented by a stress on Dutch support of its persecuted Jewish citizens. My article noted, however, that little was further from the truth. On virtually all levels, before and even during the war, a substantial number of Dutch people collaborated with Nazi Germany. The Jewish Dutch received only scant support. A good philosopher, according to Nietzsche, has to be the bad conscience of his time. I argue that this duty also applies to historians and journalists. I hope that my critique will be seen as an invitation to researchers to take a closer look at this black page in Dutch history"--Cover
