Forbidden Music - The Jewish Composers Banned by the Nazis (Paperback): Michael Haas Forbidden Music - The Jewish Composers Banned by the Nazis (Paperback)
Michael Haas
R466 Discovery Miles 4 660 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

A groundbreaking study of the Jewish composers and musicians banned by the Third Reich-and the consequences for music worldwide With National Socialism's arrival in Germany in 1933, Jews dominated music more than virtually any other sector, making it the most important cultural front in the Nazi fight for German identity. This groundbreaking book looks at the Jewish composers and musicians banned by the Third Reich and the consequences for music throughout the rest of the twentieth century. Because Jewish musicians and composers were, by 1933, the principal conveyors of Germany's historic traditions and the ideals of German culture, the isolation, exile and persecution of Jewish musicians by the Nazis became an act of musical self-mutilation. Michael Haas looks at the actual contribution of Jewish composers in Germany and Austria before 1933, at their increasingly precarious position in Nazi Europe, their forced emigration before and during the war, their ambivalent relationships with their countries of refuge, such as Britain and the United States and their contributions within the radically changed post-war music environment.

Why Democracies Flounder and Fail - Remedying Mass Society Politics (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2019): Michael Haas Why Democracies Flounder and Fail - Remedying Mass Society Politics (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2019)

Democracy is in crisis because voices of the people are ignored due to a politics of mass society. After demonstrating how the French Fourth Republic failed, wherein Singapore's totalitarianism is a dangerous model, Washington is enmeshed in gridlock, and there is a global democracy deficit, solutions are offered to revitalize democracy as the best form of government. The book demonstrates how mass society politics operates, with intermediate institutions of civil society (media, pressure groups, political parties) no longer transmitting the will of the people to government but instead are concerned with corporate interests and have developed oligarchical mindsets. Rather than micro-remedy bandaids, the author focuses on the need to transform governing philosophies from pragmatic to humanistic solutions.

United States Diplomacy with North Korea and Vietnam - Explaining Failure and Success (Hardcover, New edition): Johan Galtung United States Diplomacy with North Korea and Vietnam - Explaining Failure and Success (Hardcover, New edition)
Johan Galtung; Foreword by Bill Richardson; Michael Haas

Dr. Michael Haas' book, United States Diplomacy with North Korea and Vietnam: Explaining Failure and Success, aims to explain a significant, beguiling discrepancy in U.S. foreign relations: How has American diplomacy with Vietnam proved so successful when compared with its efforts to negotiate with North Korea? Haas undertakes a comparative analysis of foreign policy decisions to determine how relationships between the U.S. and each country have diverged drastically, in spite of a legacy of U.S. occupation in both regions. By tracing diplomatic interactions historically, comparatively quantifying diplomatic missteps on the part of the U.S., and cross-testing four paradigms of international relations, Haas presents a case for why the U.S. has succeeded in developing good relations with Vietnam while failing to achieve them with North Korea. Nuclear war haunts the world today because the U.S. has refused to negotiate a peace agreement with North Korea for more than six decades, yet the U.S. is on friendly terms today with Vietnam, a former enemy. This book answers why, finding that Washington's diplomacy with both countries explains the dramatic difference. Among four theories posed, power politics and presidential politics are refuted as explanations. Mass society theory, which focuses on civil society, finds that negotiations regarding American soldiers missing in action paved the way for success with Vietnam but not with North Korea. But diplomacy theory-tracing moves and countermoves during diplomatic interactions-reveals the real source of the problem: The United States provided reciprocated unilateral positive gestures to Vietnam while repeatedly double crossing North Korea. Although Pyongyang repeatedly offered to give up nuclear developments, Washington offered no alternative to Pyongyang but to develop a nuclear deterrent to safeguard the country against a devious and hostile U.S. The book, in short, serves as a serious corrective to false narratives and options being disseminated about the situation that fail to appreciate North Korea perspectives. Now that North Korea has a nuclear deterrent, diplomacy is the only route toward a de-escalation of tensions so that the United States can live peacefully with North Korea in a manner similar to its relations with nuclear China and nuclear Russia. More broadly, United States Diplomacy with North Korea and Vietnam demonstrates what happens when Washington plays the role of global bully, whereas more resources are needed for developing diplomatic talent in a world that will otherwise become more dangerous.

Political science has been described as a jigsaw puzzle with many specializations and subfields that do not talk to one another. This book offers a solution that will advance the field from mid-level theory to engage in cross-fertilization through metatheoretical paradigms. The book begins with a history of political science from the nineteenth century to the present, followed by a paradigmatic history of political science including 6 metatheories in the pre-behavioral era, 12 in the behavioral era, and the 4 major and several minor paradigms being developed today. The book advances the goal of David Easton by proposing a neobehavioral political science including multimethodological innovations, cross-testing of paradigms, and tenets of a new political science that can rise to become a truly theoretical science. Each paradigm is diagramed to demonstrate the key concepts and their causal interconnections. Political Science Revitalized: Filling the Jigsaw Puzzle with Paradigms poses an exciting and provocative argument for the future of the vast field of political science.

Scholars of international studies thought that finally an extraordinary research finding would bring scholars together in a common pursuit for researcher that would lighten a pathway toward a peaceful world: If only a world of democracies could be established, international relations would be based on diplomacy, not war. But they abandoned basic rules of scientific and systematic research by failing to define what they meant by "democracy," and next sought a critical variable explaining why democracies were presumably so peaceful toward one another, unaware of paradigmatic possibilities. They ignored deviant cases and normative implications. Then came the Iraq War of 2003, when "democratic peace" research was used as a justification for unlawful aggression. Their research boomeranged. The book traces the development of the theory--from the first empirical findings, the botched and contradictory research designs, failure to consider causal implications, pseudotheoretical explanations, and implicit implications for policy. The book concludes that excellent research conducted within the framework of the delusionary social constructionist concept of "democratic peace" has fallen like Humpty Dumpty and can only be salvaged by developing paradigmatic theory about peace and war and then retrofitting the research therein.

R433 Discovery Miles 4 330 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Political scientist Michael Haas brings together essays by seven distinguished authors with different ideas about how North and South Korea might again become a single, unified state. The book presents a history of Korea and pathways that may be followed to bring the two Koreas together in a confederation or federation despite different economic and ideological systems-and new material identifies progress already achieved toward the goal of reunification. Chapters deal with the following approaches that have been used in other cases of divided peoples who eventually became unified under a single government: Neutralization - concluding a peace treaty and dismantling armies Functionalism - nonpolitical cross-border economic and social contact Nonviolence - the tradition of Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. Mediation - how third parties can facilitate agreements between North & South Negotiation - diplomacy involving professionals and nonprofessionals In addition, one chapter examines the feasibility of reunification from a political and military perspective. The final chapter assesses progress over the past 25 years and prospects for the future. The book has several unique elements: Proves that plans of both Koreas have changed dramatically over the years. Shows 4 basic ways to redesign relations between the Koreas. Explodes the myth that the two Koreas do not talk to each other. Explains how both Pyongyang and Seoul co-hosted the Olympic Games in 1988. Indicates that more than 100 South Korea companies operate in the North. Cites approved visits of ordinary North Koreans to South Korea and vice versa. Specifies 5 tasks for nonviolent global transformation. Traces the impact of the ending of the Cold War on both Koreas. Explains second- and third-track diplomacy-and who is involved today. Suggests how reunification could occur "spontaneously." Provides guidelines for successful negotiation outcomes. Identifies the size of armies and revenue from arms exports of both Koreas. Reveals that the USA withdrew all nuclear warheads from South Korea in 1991. Dates the origin of North Korea's nuclear program from the Cold War's end. Compares divided Korea with other divided peoples around the world. Gives details about Korea's relations with China, Japan, Russia, USA.

What is "authentic Christianity"?
With so many conflicting doctrines and denominations, each claiming to be truth, how can anyone be sure that they are following God's will?
The solution is to move away from doctrines that use the Bible piecemeal, seizing on some verses while ignoring others. Instead, Christians must view the Bible as a single unified narrative. Once the interconnected nature of Scripture is found, God's plan for humanity becomes crystal clear.
The individual books of the Bible, while having many inspired authors and being written over hundreds of years, all have a common thread that binds them together. This book identifies that thread and shows how to walk in covenant with God.
