Die gro en Revolutionen und die Kulturen der Moderne

Author: Shmuel N. Eisenstadt
Publisher: International Reading Assoc.
ISBN: 3531149938
Release Date: 2006-10-26
Genre: Political Science

Der Autor untersucht in seiner neuesten Schrift, in welchem kulturellen und historischen Kontext sich die modernen Revolutionen -- zu denen für gewöhnlich in erster Linie der Bürgerkrieg in England, die Amerikanische, Französische, Russische und Chinesische Revolution gerechnet werden -- entwickelten und in welcher Beziehung sie zur Moderne bzw. zur Kultur der Moderne stehen. Grosse Revolutionen werden vom Autor als Kombination aus dem Wechsel eines politischen Regimes und der Propagierung einer spezifischen kosmologischen Vision (d.h. als Samen spezifischer Kulturen) betrachtet. Des weiteren untersucht er die Geschichte des revolutionären Symbolismus und der revolutionären Dynamiken postrevolutionärer moderner politischer Regime sowie die sich ständig wandelnde Kultur der Moderne. Inhalt: Teil eins: Die grossen Revolutionen sowie die Ursprünge und die Kristallisierung der Moderne: Vergleichende Beobachtungen: - Der historische und kulturelle Rahmen der grossen Revolutionen - Die spezifischen Merkmale revolutionärer Prozesse und Ideologien. Teil zwei: Die "Ursachen" und der historisch-kulturelle Rahmen der Revolutionen: - Strukturelle und gesellschaftspsychologische Ursachen - Historischer Hintergrund - Die Widersprüche der "Frühen Moderne"--Der kulturelle Rahmen der grossen Revolutionen -- Die Achsenzeit-Kulturen. Teil drei: Die Varianten der Achsenzeit-Kulturen und der politischen Dynamiken -- Die Besonderheiten des revolutionären Prozesses: "Ausserweltliche" Kulturen -- die Hindu-Kultur - Die politischen Dynamiken in "innerweltlichen" Kulturen -- die konfuzianische Politikordnung in China - Monotheistische Kulturen -- Der Islam - Die christlichen Kulturen -- der europäische Kulturraum - Ein vergleichender Exkurs: Japan -- die nicht-achsenzeitliche revolutionäre Restauration. Teil vier: Kosmologische Visionen, Regulierungsformen und revolutionäres Potential: Politische Dynamiken in Achsenzeit-Kulturen.

Dictionary of the Modern Politics of Japan

Author: Prof J A A Stockwin
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781136894954
Release Date: 2003-08-27
Genre: History

The politics of Japan are less widely reported than its economics. Most people are aware of the economic 'miracle' following the Second World War, whereby Japan became the second largest economy in the world after the United States, and the economic stagnation of the early 1990s is also well known. But it is difficult to make sense of these phenomena without a knowledge of the political system and the ways in which it works in practice. Containing an introductory essay, an essay on theories of Japanese politics and over 250 A-Z entries, the Dictionary of the Modern Politics of Japan remedies this imbalance, and answers the need for an accessible work of reference bringing together information and authoritative analysis on all aspects of the politics of Japan and the Japanese political system. Including a fully annotated bibliography to guide the user to further reading, the entries are thoroughly cross-referenced and indexed, and are supplemented with maps and tables, to ensure that the Dictionary of the Modern Politics of Japan is essential reading for all scholars and students of the politics and international relations of Japan.
