Autonome und unabhängige Antifaschistinnen und Antifaschisten gehören seit über 30 Jahren zu den engagiertesten und gleichzeitig umstrittensten Akteuren im Feld des Engagements gegen 'Rechtsextremismus'. Insbesondere mit Blick auf die informell verfassten Teile des Antifa-Spektrums wird diskutiert, ob sie mehr als Teil einer 'zivilgesellschaftlichen' Akteurslandschaft, mehr als ein jugendkulturell geprägtes Phänomen oder mehr im Kontext einer politischen 'Randständigkeit' einzuordnen sind.Das öffentliche und mediale Auftreten der Antifa spiegelt vor allem die beiden letztgenannten Perspektiven situativ und kontextabhängig: Radikalität betonende Selbstdarstellung, bewusste Überschreitung von Normen, starke populärkulturelle Bezüge und nicht zuletzt die Formulierung weitreichender politischer Zielsetzungen werden häufig mit dem Namen 'Antifa' und dem Wirken von Antifa-Gruppen verbunden.Mit dieser Studie wird zum ersten Mal eine Darstellung vorgelegt, die die Innenperspektive dieses autonomen bzw. unabhängigen Antifaschismus aufnimmt. Auf Grundlage von Interviews mit Antifa-Angehörigen beschreibt sie, in welcher Weise politisches Handeln motivational bestimmt, individuell und kollektiv dargestellt und mit Sinn ausgestattet wird.Insgesamt entsteht das differenzierte Bild eines politischen Akteurs, der sich eindeutigen Zuordnungen entzieht. Während nach außen der Aufbau einer 'corporate identity' politische Wirkungsmacht erzeugen soll, zeigt sich im Blick nach innen ein Heterogenität und Individualität sichernder Funktionszusammenhang aus contentious politics, szenischer Vergemeinschaftung und stilbedachter Repräsentation.

Bridge didn't get involved with his clients, especially clients who put him at risk. From the minute he spoke to the killer who called himself Logan, he knew this one was trouble. All Logan wanted was someone to forge him a new identity so he could continue running from the secrets of his past. A simple job for Bridge, hooking Logan up with a paper guy, got complicated in a hurry when his connections started turning up dead, killed by black-robed killers with swords. To escape, Bridge and Logan dive under the radar and into the politics of the Gangland, the autonomous zone in the middle of the corporate-owned Los Angeles of 2029. Bridge must find a way to make Logan disappear before the clan of religious assassins from ancient Japan catch up to them both. This pulse-pounding thriller is the fourth in the critically-acclaimed independent cyberpunk series The Bridge Chronicles by Gary A. Ballard. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Rausch.

White
16,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Own it, snowflakes: you've lost everything you claim to hold dear. White is Bret Easton Ellis's first work of nonfiction. Already the bad boy of American literature, from Less Than Zero to American Psycho, Ellis has also earned the wrath of right-thinking people everywhere with his provocations on social media, and here he escalates his admonishment of received truths as expressed by today's version of "the left." Eschewing convention, he embraces views that will make many in literary and media communities cringe, as he takes aim at the relentless anti-Trump fixation, coastal elites, corporate censorship, Hollywood, identity politics, Generation Wuss, "woke" cultural watchdogs, the obfuscation of ideals once both cherished and clear, and the fugue state of American democracy. In a young century marked by hysterical correctness and obsessive fervency on both sides of an aisle that's taken on the scale of the Grand Canyon, White is a clarion call for freedom of speech and artistic freedom. "The central tension in Ellis's art-or his life, for that matter-is that while [his] aesthetic is the cool reserve of his native California, detachment over ideology, he can't stop generating heat.... He's hard-wired to break furniture."-Karen Heller, The Washington Post "Sweating with rage . . . humming with paranoia."-Anna Leszkiewicz, The Guardian "Snowflakes on both coasts in withdrawal from Rachel Maddow's nightly Kremlinology lesson can purchase a whole book to inspire paroxysms of rage . . . a veritable thirst trap for the easily microaggressed. It's all here. Rants about Trump derangement syndrome; MSNBC; #MeToo; safe spaces."-Bari Weiss, The New York Times

Superman in Myth and Folklore , Hörbuch, Digita...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Superman rose from popular culture - comic books, newspaper strips, radio, television, novels, and movies - but people have so embraced the character that he has now become part of folklore. This transition from popular to folk culture signals the importance of Superman to fans and to a larger American populace. Superman's story has become a myth dramatizing identity, morality, and politics. Many studies have examined the ways in which folklore has provided inspiration for other forms of culture, especially literature and cinema. In Superman in Myth and Folklore, Daniel Peretti explores the meaning of folklore inspired by popular culture, focusing not on the Man of Steel's origins but on the culture he has helped create. Superman provides a way to approach fundamental questions of human nature, a means of exploring humanity's relationship with divinity, an exemplar for debate about the type of hero society needs, and an articulation of the tension between the individual and the community. Through examinations of tattoos, humor, costuming, and festivals, Peretti portrays Superman as a corporate-owned intellectual property and a model for behavior, a means for expression and performance of individual identity, and the focal point for disparate members of fan communities. As fans apply Superman stories to their lives, they elevate him to a mythical status. Peretti focuses on the way these fans have internalized various aspects of the character. In doing so, he delves into the meaning of Superman and his place in American culture and demonstrates the character's staying power. The book is published by University Press of Mississippi. The audiobook will be published by University Press Audiobooks. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Carrico. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/130403/bk_acx0_130403_sample.mp3.

Independence in Latin America: Contrasts and Co...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the course of 15 momentous years, the Spanish- and the Portuguese-American empires that had endured for three centuries came to an end in the mid-1820s. How did this come about? Not all Latin Americans desired such a change, and the independence wars were civil wars, often cruel and always violent. What social and economic groups lined up on one side or the other? Were there variations from place to place, region to region? Did men and women differ in their experiences of war? How did Indians and blacks participate, and how did they fare as a result? In the end, who won and who lost? Independence in Latin America is about the reciprocal effect of war and social dislocation. It also demonstrates that the war itself led to national identity and so to the creation of new states. These governments generally acknowledged the novel principle of constitutionalism and popular sovereignty, even when sometimes carving out exceptions to such rules. The notion that society consisted of individuals and was not a body made up of castes, guilds, and other corporate orders had become commonplace by the ends of these wars. So international politics and military confrontations are only part of the intriguing story recounted here. The book is published by University of Texas Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Castle Vozz. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/037544/bk_acx0_037544_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Soldiers of Misfortune
29,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In Soldiers of Misfortune , Valerie Scatamburlo provides the first systematic account of the political correctness phenomenon. The author contends that the New Right's campaign against P.C. must be understood contextually, as part of the conservative movement's broader "war of position". She traces the historical genealogy of the contemporary New Right, the network of corporate-sponsored funding undergirding their anti-P.C. assault, and examines the mainstream media's complicity in propagating anti-P.C. rhetoric. Scatamburlo, however, challenges the notion that the P.C. ethos is merely a myth concocted by the New Right and addresses some of the disturbing tendencies in contemporary Left theory and politics. She locates the P.C. phenomenon theoretically and politically between the linguistic turn in social theory and the rise of identity politics. Claiming that P.C. is, in many ways, a form of pseudoradicalism, the author argues that progressive intellectuals must move beyond the edicts of P.C., the narrowness of identity politics, and the excesses of postmodernism.
