In Bed with Susie Bright 363: Why are Voters So...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Let's face it....good-looking politicians make Americans do crazy things. With so many sexually repressed voters out there, having a handsome black man on the opposite ticket of a dolled-up real-life Barbie is too much pressure. The public is responding with Bible-thumping, taboo-wielding zeal. Today, Susie takes a look at why voters are so concerned with Obama's sex life. Susie takes us through the entire gamut of public fears, from people's take on intermarriage and the "other", to what racism and scriptures have to do with voting democratically. Susie also takes a look at Palin's role in stirring up anxiety about black culture and the notion of sexually liberal black men preying on white women. And we can't forget the Republican's past ploys of using sex as a weapon to smear the opposition. Then, in the "Try This at Home" mailbag, Susie gets a letter from a listener who wonders about his prostrate: "How often can I have anal sex, not because I like it, but for my health?" No really!

Weird (eBook, ePUB)
11,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the tradition of Susan Cain's Quiet and Scott Stossel's My Age of Anxiety, Atlantic staff writer Olga Khazan reclaims the concept of "weird" and turns it into a badge of honor rather than a slur, showing how being different -- culturally, socially, physically, or mentally -- can actually be a person's greatest strength.Most of us have at some point in our lives felt like an outsider, sometimes considering ourselves "too weird" to fit in. Growing up as a Russian immigrant in West Texas, Olga Khazan always felt there was something different about her. This feeling has permeated her life, and as she embarked on a science writing career, she realized there were psychological connections between this feeling of being an outsider and both her struggles and successes later in life. She decided to reach out to other people who were unique in their environments to see if they had experienced similar feelings of alienation, and if so, to learn how they overcame them. Weird is based on in-person interviews with many of these individuals, such as a woman who is professionally surrounded by men, a liberal in a conservative area, and a Muslim in a predominantly Christian town. In addition, it provides actionable insights based on interviews with dozens of experts and a review of hundreds of scientific studies.Weird explores why it is that we crave conformity, how that affects people who are different, and what they can do about it. First, the book dives into the history of social norms and why some people hew to them more strictly than others. Next, Khazan explores the causes behind-and the consequences of-social rejection. She then reveals the hidden upsides to being "weird," as well as the strategies that people who are different might use in order to achieve success in a society that values normalcy. Finally, the book follows the trajectories of unique individuals who either decided to be among others just like them; to stay weird; or to dwell somewhere in between.Combining Khazan's own story with those of others and with fascinating takeaways from cutting-edge psychology research, Weird reveals how successful individuals learned to embrace their weirdness, using it to their advantage.

Kurdish Identity in Turkey's Urban Provinces
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Although there have been recent efforts to widen cultural freedoms to Turkey's Kurds and improve socio-economic conditions of the Kurdish region, the legacy of assimilation policies still linger. One way to measure assimilaton policies is the level of ethnic identity felt by Kurds, with the assumption that high levels of identity indicate failure of government's objectives to assimilate. The study conducts a survey of a non-random sample of 78 Kurds in three provinces of Turkey. Since the sampling is non-random and sample size is small, the results are only suggestive. The study uses a model linking identity with emotions. It posits that Kurdish identity can be measured by reference to emotions of hope and anxiety. Theories of ethnic identity, role of emotions, history of Kurds, methodology used and the analysis of data compose this study. The assessment of Kurds' emotional reactions toward socio-economic reforms and assimilation policies would give insight to decision makers in the government and policy analysts to make receptive policies with elements of tolerance for ethnic groups and consequently to strengthen the liberal democracy in Turkey.

Say Democracy, Do Realistically
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Say Democracy, Do Realistically not only examines the shifting relation between the United States and Taiwan from 1986 to 2008, but also offers a theoretical argument that integrates realist and liberal theories in international relations. Borrowing a phrase from John Owen, Chen refers to this theoretical model as Democracy, Realistically. He argues that Washington s support for democracy in Taiwan is conditional, subject to its security dilemma with China. Washington does want democracy on the island but not too much. Whenever democratizing agendas unleash voices for Taiwan independence, the United States becomes anxious. It is a great irony that Washington s anxiety about conflicts with China leads it to challenge a core principle of democracy: the right of self determination. The empirical chapters of the book are thoroughly researched and beautifully analyzed. Chen s work will interest scholars and practitioners interested in democracy in East Asia as well as those whose work focuses on the United States, China, and Taiwan, in particular. Juliann E. Allison, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of California at Riverside

Fragile Spaces
99,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book consists of a range of essays covering the complex crises, tensions and dilemmas but also the positive potential in the meeting of Jews with Western culture. In numerous contexts and through the work of fascinating individuals and thinkers, the work examines some of the consequences of political, cultural and personal rupture, as well as the manifold ways in which various Jewish intellectuals, politicians (and occasionally spies!) sought to respond to these ruptures and carve out new, sometimes profound, sometimes fanciful, options of thought and action. It also delves critically into the attacks on liberal and Enlightenment humanism. In almost all the essays the fragility of things is palpably present and the book touches on some of the ironies, problematics and functions of responses to that condition. The work mirrors the author's ongoing fascination with the always fraught, fragile and creatively fecund confrontation of Jews (and others) with European modernity, its history, politics, culture and self-definition. In a time of increasing anxiety and feelings of fragility, this work may be helpful in understanding how people at an earlier (and sometimes contemporary) period sought to come to terms with a similar predicament.

Faith, Fallibility, and the Virtue of Anxiety: ...
141,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'The relationship between religion and liberal-democratic society has emerged as one of the defining issues of the twenty-first century. Drawing together insights from political philosophy and theory, philosophy of religion, theology, epistemology, and metaphysics, Derek Malone-France argues for a fundamental reorientation of religious conceptions of faith and reframes the debate regarding what role, if any, religious justifications should play in public discourse and the law. Through an innovative re-reading of the existentialist notion of 'anxiety', Malone-France develops a 'fallibilist' warrant for classic liberal norms of tolerance, non-coercion, and individual freedom, disclosing 'the religious logic of liberal autonomy.''--
