Del Sarto argues that internal disputes over national identity limit the ability of states to participate in regional forums. This is a close look at problems faced in negotiating the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (EMP) as a regional security project, with particular attention to case studies of Israel, Egypt and Morocco.

The Religious Melting Point: On Tolerance, Cont...

How do different societies react to controversial religions? What are the constraints on religious freedom and religious tolerance in democratic societies? When do they reach their tolerance limit, their religious “melting point”, and start to discriminate against new religions? Tamar Gablinger compares the policies and societal responses to new religious movements in three countries – Germany, Israel and the United States. She contextualises the stance on new religions in those countries beyond questions of church and state. The author places these policies within the larger context of how the state perceives its citizens and looks at the respective systematic patterns of inclusion or exclusion. Gablinger focuses on one of the largest new religious movements – the Transcendental Meditation (TM) movement, founded by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the late 1950s. She provides an exceptional historical and sociological review of this movement, and its activities in Germany, Israel and the United States. Why did the TMers succeed in establishing a settlement for meditation in Israel and the United States, yet fail to do so in Germany? Why are they not allowed to meditate in US public schools despite their claim to be a “scientific method” rather than an actual religion? Why did the Natural Law Party promise peace through “Yogic Flying”? Why did the German “Raja” Emanuel Schiffgens promise an “invincible Germany” to an angry audience? And how does a neo-Hindu religious movement rebrand itself as “science”, so that very little has been written about it by sociologists of religion? Not only does the author tell the story of TM or of new religious movements and their relationships with the state. She goes further in exploring patterns of tolerance and inclusion that are relevant for our understanding of societal and political reactions to counter-cultural phenomena and controversial minorities.

Going Nuclear: The Influence of History and Hin...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Going Nuclear focuses on one of the most critical negotiations in recent memory, the efforts to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power. Iran and the P5+1 countries recently reached an agreement on a framework to limit the Iranian nuclear weapons program, but differences remain, particularly with regional countries who were not at the table. The fate of the region, the possibility of war, and the potential for a nuclear arms race in the Middle East will largely depend on how Israel and regional Sunni Arab countries judge the agreement. Going Nuclear offers a unique perspective on the negotiations and potential repercussions based on important findings and lessons from psychology, neuroscience, and decision making. It explores the influence of history and hindsight bias on Russia, China, Iran, Israel, and Sunni Arab countries, and the implications for the United States and its Western partners. It discusses the history of proliferation and its benefits, costs, risks, and uncertainties for countries that succeeded in becoming nuclear powers. Those factors are at play as Iran seeks to follow in their footsteps, while its neighbors remained determined to prevent it. Going Nuclear reaches beyond the saga of the Iranian negotiations to discuss the influence of history and hindsight in other contexts, including technical analysis, decision making, leadership, and business. 1.

This dramatic fiction is an incredible history, based on the true story of the son of a German official of the Wehrmacht, who was recognized for his bravery in the Second World War. It is the story of the son who converted to Judaism, abandoned Germany and went to Israel to become an Israeli citizen, and whose participation in the Liberian War and confrontation with the Palestinians places him in the same situation that his father must have experienced 40 years earlier - the type of dilemma that every soldier must face: are all orders licit and should they always be obeyed? What is the limit of proper obedience? Does military discipline deprive the soldier of his moral and ethical views? Does all responsibility depend on the highest level of military hierarchy, or is it shared by the intermediaries? This story confirms what the Greeks already knew: no one can avoid his own destiny. Regardless of what we do, it always finds us. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Edgar Lloyd. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/065084/bk_acx0_065084_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
