Abstract

Sexual violence is a particular brand of evil that women have endured—more than men—during armed conflicts, through the ages. It is a menace that has continued to challenge the conscience of humanity—especially in our times. At the international level, basic laws aimed at preventing it are not in short supply. What is needed is a more conscious determination to enforce existing laws. This book explores ways of doing just that; thereby shoring up international legal protection of women from sexual violence in armed conflicts.

Abstract

In recent years, European political leaders from Angela Merkel to David Cameron have discarded the term multiculturalism and now express scepticism, critique and even hostility towards multicultural ways of organising their societies. Yet they are unprepared to reverse the diversity existing in their states. These contradictory choices have different political consequences in the 11 European countries examined in this book: Belgium, Britain, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Sweden and Turkey. The future of European liberalism is being played out as multicultural notions of belonging, inclusion, tolerance and the national home are brought into question.

Abstract

Beeinflussen Massenmedien den Gang der internationalen Politik? Alexander Brand gibt hierauf eine differenzierte Antwort, die Medien weder zu Sündenböcken für fehlgeschlagene politische Projekte macht noch deren eigenständige Wirkmächtigkeit abstreitet. Auch widerspricht er einer technologiefixierten Lesart, wie sie bei der Rede vom "CNN-Effekt" oder der "Twitter-Revolution" dominiert. Auf der Basis eines modifizierten konstruktivistischen Ansatzes für die Internationalen Beziehungen erläutert die Studie, wo genau sich Medieneffekte in internationalen politischen Dynamiken niederschlagen - und zeigt, dass dies weder einseitig gerichtet noch mit durchweg erwartbaren Konsequenzen geschieht.

Abstract

Als politische Institution des Staates und der Gesellschaft prägt das Militär Soldaten und Zivilisten - und erzeugt den "Homo militaris". Ulrich vom Hagen widmet sich der spezifischen Kultur des Militärs: In Verbindung der Weber'schen Herrschaftstheorie und der Bourdieu'schen Feldtheorie konzipiert er das Militär als gewaltsame Körperschaft und lässt den Homo militaris dabei als soziologische Figur - als eine Gestalt institutionalisierter Gewalt - sichtbar werden. Zur Untersuchung des militärischen Feldes Deutschlands konnten hierfür erstmals Daten einer internen Erhebung der Bundeswehr genutzt werden. Das Buch macht eine kritische Militärsoziologie an die allgemeine Soziologie anschlussfähig.

Abstract

In its comprehensive analysis of a wide range of primary and secondary sources in both Chinese and Western languages, this authoritative work stands as the definitive study of the theory, implementation and legacy of the Chinese Communist Party's thought-remolding campaign. This decades-long campaign involved the extraction of confessions from millions of Chinese citizens suspected of heterodoxy or disobedience to party dictates, along with their subjection to various forms of "re-education" and indoctrination. Hu Ping's carefully structured overview provides a valuable insider's perspective, and supersedes the previous landmark study on this vastly interesting topic.

Abstract

In den Sozialwissenschaften wird das Verhalten von Menschen oft durch ihre Zugehörigkeit zu einer Generation erklärt. Seit den 68ern ist jedoch umstritten, ob sich überhaupt noch Generationen bilden und wodurch sie entstehen könnten. Worin liegen die Gründe hierfür? Welche gesellschaftlichen Umstände befördern welches Verhalten und warum erhalten nur manche Generationen sozialwissenschaftliche Aufmerksamkeit, sodass sie als 'Etablierte' gelten können? Im Vergleich von 45ern, Halbstarken, 68ern, 78ern, Generation Golf und Generation Praktikum zeigt David Bebnowski, dass vor allem jene Generationen 'übersehen' werden, von denen radikale politische Opposition erwartet wird.
