Military Strategy In The Indonesian Revolution: Nasution's 'Total People's War' In Theory And Practice, Robert Cribb Oct 2001

Military Strategy In The Indonesian Revolution: Nasution's 'Total People's War' In Theory And Practice, Robert Cribb

Robert Cribb

Analyses the guerrilla strategy of General A.H. Nasution, architect of Indonesia's guerrilla resistance to the Dutch in the late 1940s and finds that his strategy, unlike that of Mao or Giap, involved keeping the mass of the poeple at arm's length from the guerrilla army.

La Filosofía Política De Jorge Luis Borges, Martin Enrique Krause Sep 2001

La Filosofía Política De Jorge Luis Borges, Martin Enrique Krause

Martin Krause

Borges y la política han dado mucho que hablar, pero la atención que sus opiniones generaran se ha centrado generalmente en la anécdota de aquél personaje que poca atención le prestaba a las noticias diarias, y que basaba buena parte de su consideración en criterios estéticos, y particularmente épicos: desde su admiración por los militares patrios y su lucha por la independencia y libertad argentinas hasta su afiliación al Partido Conservador porque sólo los caballeros se suman a las causas perdidas. Lamentablemente estas opiniones políticas le costaron el premio Nobel , negado por quienes prefirieron dar prioridad en la entrega de ...

Chernobyl Stories And Anthropological Shock In Hungary, Krista Harper Jul 2001

Chernobyl Stories And Anthropological Shock In Hungary, Krista Harper

Krista M. Harper

The Budapest Chernobyl Day commemoration generated a creative outpouring of stories about parental responsibilities, scientific knowledge, environmental risks, and public participation. I examine the stories and performances elicited by the tenth anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in April 1996. In these “Chernobyl stories,” activists criticized scientific and state paternalism while engaging in alternative practices of citizenship. The decade between the catastrophic explosion and its commemoration coincides with the development of the Hungarian environmental movement and the transformation from state socialism. Chernobyl Day 1996 consequently became an opportunity for activists to reflect upon how the meaning of citizenship and public ...


The Return Of Assimilation? Changing Perspectives On Immigration And Its Sequels In France, Germany, And The United States, Rogers Brubaker Jun 2001

The Return Of Assimilation? Changing Perspectives On Immigration And Its Sequels In France, Germany, And The United States, Rogers Brubaker

Rogers Brubaker

This article argues that the massive differentialist turn of the last third of the twentieth century may have reached its peak, and that one can discern signs of a modest “return of assimilation”. The article presents evidence of this from the domain of public discourse in France, public policy in Germany, and scholarly research in the US. Yet what has “returned” is not the old, analytically discredited and politically disreputable “assimilationist” understanding of assimilation, but a more analytically complex and normatively defensible understanding. The article concludes by specifying the ways in which the concept of assimilation has been transformed.

The Yugoslav Wars’ Implications On Romanian Security, Nikolaos Tzifakis May 2001

The Yugoslav Wars’ Implications On Romanian Security, Nikolaos Tzifakis

Nikolaos Tzifakis

This paper perceives Romania as an integral part of the Balkan sub-regional security complex and attempts to evaluate the implications of its participation in Balkan affairs on its security. More precisely, the article discusses the effects that the Yugoslav (Croat-Serbian, Bosnian and Kosovar) wars had on Romanian security and presents Bucharest’s endeavor to manage its insecurity. The research demonstrates that Romania envisaged the management of its insecurity by upholding its application for membership in Western security structures (NATO, WEU) rather than by institutionalizing Balkan cooperation. Considering that NATO and Yugoslavia were adversaries throughout the 1990s, the paper discusses Bucharest ...

Reimagining Weber: Constructing International Society And The Social Balance Of Power, John M. Hobson, Leonard Seabrooke Jan 2001

Reimagining Weber: Constructing International Society And The Social Balance Of Power, John M. Hobson, Leonard Seabrooke

Leonard Seabrooke

This article ‘reimagines’ Max Weber, who is conventionally thought to be one of realism’s founding fathers. While Weber’s work had various ambiguities and tensions, we suggest that his conception of IR had much in common with liberalism, and especially the English School. Nevertheless, our ‘reimagining’ of Weber augments in a sustained and particular way an area of analysis that has not been consistently or sufficiently developed within the English School; namely an emphasis on the social legitimacy of a particular form of state–society complex that is constitutive of international society. In contrast to Hedley Bull, who viewed ...

O Estado Como Instituição: Uma Leitura Das Obras Históricas De Marx, Adriano Codato, Renato Perissinotto

Adriano Codato

The aim of this paper is to present a reading of the Marxist theory of the state more complex and ambitious than that made by recent neo-institutionalists criticism. Upon reconsideration of the "historical works" of Marx demonstrated that this author has a conception of state which takes into account their internal institutional dynamics without compromising, however, the view of class.

Timbuktu: A Lesson In Underdevelopment, Riccardo Pelizzo Jan 2001

Timbuktu: A Lesson In Underdevelopment, Riccardo Pelizzo

riccardo pelizzo

Th e purpose of the present paper is to investigate Timbuktu’s economic decline in the three centuries elapsed between 1526, when Leo Africanus reached the Mysterious City, and 1830, when the fi rst European explorers arrived in Timbuktu. It is argued that Timbuktu’s decline was neither an accident nor the result of inevitable natural conditions. Timbuktu’s decay was the product of historical and social forces. Specifi cally, it is argued that Timbuktu lost power and prestige because its market decayed. However, it is also suggested that no single factor can account individually for this event. Th e ...

Rights Of Inequality: Rawlsian Justice, Equal Opportunity, And The Status Of The Family, Justin Schwartz Jan 2001

Rights Of Inequality: Rawlsian Justice, Equal Opportunity, And The Status Of The Family, Justin Schwartz

Justin Schwartz

Is the family subject to principles of justice? In A Theory of Justice, John Rawls includes the (monogamous) family along with the market and the government as among the "basic institutions of society" to which principles of justice apply. Justice, he famously insists, is primary in politics as truth is in science: the only excuse for tolerating injustice is that no lesser injustice is possible. The point of the present paper is that Rawls doesn't actually mean this. When it comes to the family, and in particular its impact on fair equal opportunity (the first part of the the ...


Distrust Breeds Bureaucracy: Democratization And The Formal Regulation Of Electoral Governance In Mexico, Andreas Schedler Jan 2001

Distrust Breeds Bureaucracy: Democratization And The Formal Regulation Of Electoral Governance In Mexico, Andreas Schedler

Andreas Schedler

In contemporary Mexico, political parties have subject electoral authorities to tight legal regulation. Their reliance on “bureaucratic” control sheds light on a crucial premise of “post-bureaucratic” approaches: deregulation presupposes trust. The article describes the distrust-driven regulation of three areas of electoral governance: record keeping, the identification of voters and ballots, and time rules. It concludes with reflections on the potential costs of bureaucratizing electoral governance.

Multilateral Agencies And Higher Education Reform In Latin America, Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez, Armando Alcántara Jan 2001

Multilateral Agencies And Higher Education Reform In Latin America, Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez, Armando Alcántara

Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

During the last decade, the debate over higher education took up a significant space on the agendas of various international agencies, including multilateral development banks and other intergovernmental agencies. This fact points to the importance of the subject within a broader discussion that refers to national development projects and their articulation within the new international economic and political order. In this context, the purpose of this article is to discern the principal lines of argument at work and their implications for the transformation of higher education in Latin America. To this end, we have chosen four cases that we consider ...

La Universidad Latinoamericana Y El Siglo Xxi: Algunos Retos Estructurales, Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

En América Latina el proceso de transición manifiesta rasgos comunes con la dinámica de cambio global, pero también expresiones particulares. Ante todo, las transformaciones económicas se han expresado a través de una serie cíclica de momentos de crisis-recuperación. Visto en una perspectiva de conjunto, el período que comprende las últimas décadas del siglo XX se caracteriza tanto por la reforma del Estado como por la implantación de programas de ajuste que, con las particularidades de cada caso, han sido adoptados por la totalidad de los países de la región. La simultaneidad de estas transiciones ha hecho sentir su peso en ...
