Pioneers of liberal Islam
32,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Islam as a topic of interest in sociology is not as widespread as Christianity. Moreover, not until recently has liberal Islam in Russia, been the subject of many academic papers. The shadow of socialism in times past, and recent interest on fundamentalist Muslim movements, has caused social scientific observers to forget about the potential for liberal Islam in Russian society. This study treats the notion of "liberal" through a systemic perspective. By observing how the religious system, Islam, sees itself, it is intended to reveal liberal Islam in Russia and its main characteristics. Furthermore, this study can be understood as a unique application of Niklas Luhmann's system theory on interview analysis. Processing the combination of empirical data and detailed background information on Russian society, gives the opportunity for new insights on Islam in Russia. This work is a snapshot of time for the evolutionary stage of liberal Islam in a post-socialist, Orthodox majority society, which hosts the biggest Muslim community in Europe.

Bosch is a company with a rich history. It stands for important trends of the modern world, such as the motorization of transport or the electrification of the household, and was one of the pioneers of globalization. Its founder Robert Bosch was as well known for his liberal views as he was for the social principles he applied to company management. With this book, Johannes Bähr and Paul Erker present the first comprehensive history of Bosch to be written by independent historians. In undertaking their research, the authors had unrestricted access to the company archives. Starting from the figure of the company founder, his business principles, and the early days of his company as a modest, courtyard-entrance workshop in the west end of Stuttgart, they go on to describe the company's rise to become the world's leading automotive supplier, as well as the emergence of a distinctive corporate culture oriented to social concerns. The authors also profile the company's most important subsidiaries, charting the development of the diverse business activities that characterize today's supplier of technology and services. The work's focal points include the company's conduct during the Third Reich as well as the later evolution of its corporate constitution. Spanning a period of more than 100 years, the authors recount the history of one of the world's first global enterprises, a history of outstanding innovations and triumphs, but also of crises that time and again put the company founder's principles to the test.

The Sentimental Education of the Novel
49,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The nineteenth-century French novel has long been seen as the heroic production of great men, who confronted in their works the social consequences of the French Revolution. And it is true that French realism, especially as developed by Balzac and Stendhal, was one of the most influential novelistic forms ever invented. Margaret Cohen, however, challenges the traditional account of the genesis of realism by returning Balzac and Stendhal to the forgotten novelistic contexts of their time. Reconstructing a key formative period for the novel, she shows how realist codes emerged in a 'hostile take-over' of a prestigious contemporary sentimental practice of the novel, which was almost completely dominated by women writers. Cohen draws on impressive archival research, resurrecting scores of forgotten nineteenth-century novels, to demonstrate that the codes most closely identified with realism were actually the invention of sentimentality, a powerful aesthetic of emerging liberal-democratic society, although Balzac and Stendhal trivialized sentimental works by associating them with 'frivolous' women writers and readers. Attention to these gendered struggles over genre explains why women were not pioneers of realism in France during the nineteenth century, a situation that contrasts with England, where women writers played a formative role in inventing the modern realist novel. Cohen argues that to understand how literary codes respond to material factors, it is imperative to see how such factors take shape within the literary field as well as within society as a whole. The book also proposes that attention to literature as a social institution will help critics resolve the current, vital question of how to practice literary history in the wake of poststructuralism.

With growing numbers of children living in poverty and standardized tests becoming increasingly important, there's never been a better time for a volume of essays on the value of play in mental and emotional development. Mary Ruth Moore and Constance Sabo-Risley honor and build upon the work of Joe L. Frost, the father of play advocacy, in this essential resource for educators, parents, and anyone concerned about the future of our children. The essays examine play in America from historical, psychological, economic, and other perspectives, focusing on why we should worry about children playing less than they did twenty years ago, the benefits of letting children play without constant supervision, how playing can promote a love of nature, and the importance of risk assessment in play. Specific articles include: 'A Place for Play in the Liberal Arts,' by Michael J. Bell; 'Play Deprivation,' by Stuart Brown; 'Caretakers of Wonder' by Vivien Geneser; and 'Social Media as a 21st Century Playground' by Stephanie Grote-Garcia, Tammy Francis Donaldson, Olive Kajoina, and Norman St. Clair. Several other authors also contribute articles to this well-researched book. Pay tribute to one of early childhood education's most important pioneers, and discover the valuable benefits of Play in American Life.
