Women Fielding Danger: Negotiating Ethnographic Identities in Field Research

In a compelling exploration of an oft-hidden aspect of qualitative field research, Women Fielding Danger shows how identity performances can facilitate or block field research outcomes. The book asks questions that are crucial for all women engaged in field research. Do researchers enter their field site with a totally neutral identity? Can a researcher's own identity be at odds with how interviewees see her? Could a researcher be of...

Modern American Political Dynasties

"With populism and extremism challenging democracy worldwide, this timely edited volume takes a different and illuminating path by exploring the paradoxical role and life cycle of family dynasties in a political system that elevates the individual, and today, the outsider. By a systematic and detailed examination of national, state, regional, and local dynasties the authors have linked history and political science (as well as the ps...

Sarah Kofman's Corpus

“The first to incorporate Kofman’s work into the current debates animating continental philosophy, Sarah Kofman’s Corpus offers impressive contributions to the literature on Freud and Nietzsche, as well as feminist theory, philosophy of art, and Holocaust studies. It invigorates the contemporary landscape of French thought with the stakes introduced by Kofman’s oeuvre, which emerges here in all its richness and irreverence, a call to...

Contemporary Human Rights Ideas (Global Institutions)

The vindication of human rights is a critical challenge of a new century.

Leaders of government and civil society, and the academic world, are in need of policy and normative frameworks for treading the way forward in responding to these glo...

Die Wochenzeitung "Junge Freiheit": Kritische Analysen zu Programmatik, Inhalten, Autoren und Kunden

Die Wochenzeitung „Junge Freiheit“ gilt als die zentrale Publikation der Neuen Rechten in Deutschland, einer Strömung, die unter dem Deckmantel des Konservativismus ein Scharnier zwischen Rechtsextremismus und demokratischem Spektrum bildet. Jahrelang wurde sie in Verfassungsschutzberichten geführt. Dagegen hat die „Junge Freiheit“ vor dem Bundesverfassungsgericht geklagt und sich daraufhin juristisch verglichen. Seitdem ist ihre Auf...

Taking Religion Seriously Across the Curriculum

The authors chart a middle course in our war over religion and public education, one that builds on a developing national consensus among educational and religious leaders. While it is not proper for schools to practice religion or proselytize, neither is it permissible to make them religion-free zones. Schools do not take religion seriously, as the authors' review of textbooks and the new national content standards makes clear. In P...

Immigrants, Evangelicals, and Politics in an Era of Demographic Change

“This is the perfect time for this important book. With evangelicals again in the bright political spotlight over their role in electing Donald Trump, it is essential to understand Janelle Wong’s exploration of evangelical religion, interests, and identities. Evangelical is clearly not a synonym for white Republican. But the steady diversification of evangelicalism will not necessarily entail a moderation of white evangelical politic...
