The Political Economy Of Eastern Europe 30 Years Into The Transition

The Political Economy Of Eastern Europe 30 Years Into The Transition

Download

Description:

By the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, in most parts of Eastern Europe, high expectations associated with postsocialist transition have been substituted by disillusionment. After 1990, Eastern Europe has been internationally treated with a low-interest acknowledgement of what was understood as a slow and erratic, but unquestionable process of integration in a Western-dominated world order. In the context of todays geopolitical reorganization, East European examples of authoritarian politics once again become discussed as significant reference points for Western and global politics. This book represents a contribution to this debate from a distinctive East European perspective: that of new left scholars and activists from the region, whose lifetime largely corresponds to the transformations of the postsocialist period, and who came to develop an understanding of their environment in terms of its relations to global capitalist processes. A both theoretical and empirical contribution, the book provides essential insights on topics conventionally associated with East European transition from privatization to the politicized slogans of corruption or civil society, and analyzes their connection to the newest reconfigurations of postsocialist capitalist regimes. As a contribution to contemporary debates on the present global socio-political transformation, this collection does not only seek to debate analytical statements, but also to change the field where analytical stakes are set, by adding perspectives that think Eastern Europes global relations from within the regional context and its political stakes. Agnes Gagyi works on East European politics and social movements from the perspective of the regions long-term global integration. She is researcher on East European social movements at the University of Gothenburg, and member of the Working Group for Public Sociology Helyzet in Budapest. Ondrej Slacalek is a political scientist and journalist, he focuses on East European politics, nationalism and social movements. He works at Charles University, Prague. He is a regular collaborator of Czech new left journal A2/A2larm.

Is The Good Book Good Enough

Is The Good Book Good Enough

Download

Description:

The book analyzes evangelical Christianity as a comprehensive perspective for understanding the range of contemporary policy issues in America. It finds that evangelicalism can be understood as a distinctive approach to understanding policy debates, that evangelicals are not as monolithic as commonly thought, but that their policy activism is still marred by significant shortcomings, namely their failure to employ non-biblical arguments and rhetoric that might resonate with non-evangelical Christians.

Ecuador Perspectives Of The Past Present And Future

Ecuador Perspectives Of The Past Present And Future

Download

Description:

"Ecuador is a diverse and multicultural country which has resisted the historical processes of homogenization and globalization. In it different peoples and ancestral nationalities coexist, as well as the heirs of the colonial process, appearing as strong contrasts in customs, languages and cultural expressions, arising syncretism, miscegenation and fusion. There is a fascinating natural diversity, which, despite being contained in a small fragment of world territory, gives an immeasurable environmental value to the country, America, and the world. However, this cultural and environmental wealth is sometimes overshadowed by phenomena of exclusion, by social gaps, by gender inequality and by environmental degradation. These realities, which affect all of Latin America, have vernacular peculiarities, intrinsic to Ecuador as a country. Within this context, this publication aims to generate an investigative space from different perspectives and disciplines, contributing to the construction of a more inclusive and sustainable Ecuador. Therefore, the philosophy and motivation in which the editorial spirit is inscribed is focused through the concepts of identity, culture, humanism, the environment and interculturality. This work also presents the main results of research carried out by various universities in Ecuador, highlighting the contribution of the research project promoted by the postgraduate program of the Catholic University of Cuenca called "Sustainable Architecture Through Adequate Recycling of Plastic," which has allowed the correct articulation of the themes exposed in this work. We hope that this book, beyond becoming a useful instrument in academia and within research, may have an expansive and positive effect on the inhabitants of Ecuador, especially those most disadvantaged"--
