World Wide Warriors

The contributions of this volume aim at a new, evidence based approach to Jihadism studies. What is the structure of Jihadi online communication and the dissemination of operational material online? Which errors were made by conventional Jihadism research? Which programs, apps, etc. use Jihadis to further their online communication? Next to these questions the contributors discuss the evident inability to understand basic mathematical principles in conventional Jihadism research and consider a very important video as a case study of Jihadi online communication, stressing the linguistic and theological shortcomings of conventional research. The volume is based on the understanding of theological elements as a vital part of Jihadi communication.

The World Until Yesterday
10,49 € *

The bestselling author of Collapse and Guns, Germs and Steel surveys the history of human societies to answer the question: What can we learn from traditional societies that can make the world a better place for all of us? ´´As he did in his Pulitzer Prize-winning Guns, Germs, and Steel, Jared Diamond continues to make us think with his mesmerizing and absorbing new book.´´ Bookpage Most of us take for granted the features of our modern society, from air travel and telecommunications to literacy and obesity. Yet for nearly all of its six million years of existence, human society had none of these things. While the gulf that divides us from our primitive ancestors may seem unbridgeably wide, we can glimpse much of our former lifestyle in those largely traditional societies still or recently in existence. Societies like those of the New Guinea Highlanders remind us that it was only yesterday-in evolutionary time-when everything changed and that we moderns still possess bodies and social practices often better adapted to traditional than to modern conditions.The World Until Yesterday provides a mesmerizing firsthand picture of the human past as it had been for millions of years-a past that has mostly vanished-and considers what the differences between that past and our present mean for our lives today. This is Jared Diamond´s most personal book to date, as he draws extensively from his decades of field work in the Pacific islands, as well as evidence from Inuit, Amazonian Indians, Kalahari San people, and others. Diamond doesn´t romanticize traditional societies-after all, we are shocked by some of their practices-but he finds that their solutions to universal human problems such as child rearing, elder care, dispute resolution, risk, and physical fitness have much to teach us. Provocative, enlightening, and entertaining, The World Until Yesterday is an essential and fascinating read.

Wider den Rassismus
28,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

1937 erschien die Enzyklika ´´Mit brennender Sorge´´ gegen den Nationalsozialismus. Hat die katholische Kirche dennoch versagt? Warum hat sie Rassismus und Judenverfolgung nicht öffentlich verurteilt? Warum ist die Enzyklika gegen Nationalismus und Rassismus, die Pius XI. 1938 in Auftrag gab, nicht mehr erschienen, auch nicht unter Pius XII.? Erstmals wird der Entwurf dieser Enzyklika veröffentlicht. Er wurde von Gundlach in Abstimmung mit zwei anderen Jesuiten 1938 in Paris verfasst. Neben Rerum novarum (1891) und Quadragesimo anno (1931) hätte es die dritte Sozialenzyklika (´´Societatis Unio´´) werden sollen. Einführend geht der Herausgeber dabei jüngst wieder aufgeworfenen Fragen nach: Warum wird der Textentwurf erst jetzt zugänglich gemacht? Gab es in Rom einflussreiche Kreise, die diese Enzyklika verhindern wollten? War der ´´katholische Antikommunismus´´ am Werk? Der Band enthält auch einige Briefe Gundlachs von hohem zeitgeschichtlichem Wert. Darin beurteilt er die Einschätzung des Nationalsozialismus und Kommunismus durch führende Kirchenleute. Abschließend wird die Eigenbiographie Gundlachs erstmals publiziert.

Political Responsibility for a Globalised World
33,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The aim of this book is to reflect on the complex practice of responsibility within the context of a globalised world and contemporary means of action. Levinas´ exploration of the ethical serves as point of entry and is shown to be seeking inter-cultural political relevance through engagement in the issues of postcoloniality and humanism. Yet, Levinas fails to realise the ethical implications of the inevitable instrumental mediation between the ethical meaning and political practice. With recourse to Weber, Apel and Ricoeur, Ernst Wolff proposes a theory of strategic co-responsibility for the uncertain global context of practice.
