The Book Radical Right

The Publisher Cambridge University Press
Release Date2005-08-22
Genre Political Science
Pages
ISBN 1139446428
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: During recent decades, radical right parties have been surging in popularity in many nations, gaining legislative seats, enjoying the legitimacy endowed by ministerial office, and striding the corridors of government power. The popularity of leaders such as Le Pen, Haider, and Fortuyn has aroused widespread popular concern and a burgeoning scholarly literature. Despite the interest, little consensus has emerged about the primary factors driving this phenomenon. The puzzle is to explain why radical right parties have advanced in a diverse array of democracies - including in Austria, Canada, Norway, France, Italy, New Zealand, Switzerland, Israel, Romania, Russia, and Chile - while failing to make comparable gains in similar societies elsewhere, such as in Sweden, Britain, and the United States. This book, first published in 2005, expands our understanding of support for radical right parties through presenting an integrated new theory which is then tested systematically using a wealth of cross-national survey evidence covering almost forty countries.


The Book Radical Islam Rising
The Author Quintan Wiktorowicz
The Publisher Rowman & Littlefield
Release Date2005-01-01
Genre Religion
Pages 248
ISBN 0742536416
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This unique book represents one of the first systematic attempts to explain why thousands of Westerners heed international calls to 'jihad' and join radical Islamic groups. Drawing on his unprecedented access to a radical Islamic group, Quintan Wiktorowicz details the subtle process that can turn seemingly unreligious people into supporters of religious violence. The author's extraordinary fieldwork forms the basis of a detailed case study of al-Muhajiroun, a transnational movement based in London that supports Bin Laden and other Islamic terrorists. Through its rich empirical detail, the case study explains the larger question of why ordinary people join extremist movements.

Release Date2002-07-18
Genre History
Pages 832
ISBN 9780191622878
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Arguably the most decisive shift in the history of ideas in modern times was the complete demolition during the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries - in the wake of the Scientific Revolution - of traditional structures of authority, scientific thought, and belief by the new philosophy and the philosophes, culminating in Voltaire, Diderot, and Rousseau. In this revolutionary process which effectively overthrew all justicfication for monarchy, aristocracy, and ecclesiastical power, as well as man's dominance over woman, theological dominance of education, and slavery, substituting the modern principles of equality, democracy, and universality, the Radical Enlightenment played a crucially important part. Despite the present day interest in the revolutions of the late eighteenth century, the origins and rise of the Radical Enlightenment have been astonishingly little studied doubtless largely because of its very wide international sweep and the obvious difficulty of fitting in into the restrictive conventions of 'national history' which until recently tended to dominate all historiography. The greatest obstacle to the Radical Enlightenment finding its proper place in modern historical writing is simply that it was not French, British, German, Italian, Jewish or Dutch, but all of these at the same time. In this novel interpretation of the Radical Enlightenment down to La Mettie and Diderot, two of its key exponents, particular stress is placed on the pivotal role of Spinoza and the widespread underground international philosophical movement known before 1750 as Spinozism.

ISBN 9781596271364
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: An exploration of the teachings of Jesus in relation to the LGBTQ community that “helps readers welcome a theology that leaves no one behind” (Chris Glaser, author of Coming Out as Sacrament). A common claim, on both on the political right and left, is that Christianity is incompatible with queerness. As this first book on the subject of queer theology insightfully argues, Jesus Christ can be understood by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people as the embodiment of a love so extreme that it dissolves all existing boundaries. In discussing revelation, God, Trinity, creation, atonement, sin, grace, Holy Spirit, church, and sacraments, Patrick Cheng—a theologian, seminary professor, and ordained minister—provides a historical survey of how queer theology has developed from the 1950s to today, and then illuminates its themes using the ecumenical creeds as his guide. He discusses Jesus’s communion with all people—holy and profane. He explores Jesus’s crossing of all barriers—from Divine to sexual. Above all, he reminds us that those barriers are societal, rather than religious, concepts. “An excellent introduction for beginners and an excellent synthesis for more advanced readers." —Virginia Ramey Mollenkott, author of Sensuous Spirituality

Genre History
Pages 268
ISBN 0253215021
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: "... Ann Braude still speaks powerfully to unique issues of women's creativity-spiritual as well as political-in a superb account of the controversial nineteenth-century Spiritualist movement." —Jon Butler "Radical Spirits is a vitally important book... [that] has... influenced a generation of young scholars." —Marie Griffith In Radical Spirits, Ann Braude contends that the early women's rights movement and Spiritualism went hand in hand. Her book makes a convincing argument for the importance of religion in the study of American women's history. In this new edition, Braude discusses the impact of the book on the scholarship of the last decade and assesses the place of religion in interpretations of women's history in general and the women's rights movement in particular. A review of current scholarship and suggestions for further reading make it even more useful for contemporary teachers and students.

The Book Radical

The Publisher Rowman & Littlefield
Release Date2016-03-01
Genre Biography & Autobiography
Pages 296
ISBN 9781493025725
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Maajid Nawaz spent his teenage years listening to American hip-hop and learning about the radical Islamist movement spreading throughout Europe and Asia in the 1980s and 90s. At 16, he was already a ranking member in Hizb ut-Tahrir, a London-based Islamist group. He quickly rose through the ranks to become a top recruiter, a charismatic spokesman for the cause of uniting Islam’s political power across the world. Nawaz was setting up satellite groups in Pakistan, Denmark, and Egypt when he was rounded up in the aftermath of 9/11 along with many other radical Muslims. He was sent to an Egyptian prison where he was, fortuitously, jailed along with the assassins of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. The 20 years in prison had changed the assassins’ views on Islam and violence; Maajid went into prison preaching to them about the Islamist cause, but the lessons ended up going the other way. He came out of prison four years later completely changed, convinced that his entire belief system had been wrong, and determined to do something about it. He met with activists and heads of state, built a network, and started a foundation, Quilliam, funded by the British government, to combat the rising Islamist tide in Europe and elsewhere, using his intimate knowledge of recruitment tactics in order to reverse extremism and persuade Muslims that the ‘narrative’ used to recruit them (that the West is evil and the cause of all of Muslim suffering), is false. Radical, first published in the UK, is a fascinating and important look into one man's journey out of extremism and into something else entirely. This U.S. edition contains a "Preface for US readers" and a new, updated epilogue.
