Explanation of the Book:

Thomas Sowell's classic analysis of the opposing visions behind today's ethical and ideological disputes Controversies in politics arise from many sources, but the conflicts that endure for generations or centuries show a remarkably consistent pattern. This revised edition of a classic analyzes the centuries-long debates about the nature of reason, justice, equality, and power. It distinguishes between those with the "constrained" vision, which sees human nature as enduring and self-centered, and the "unconstrained" vision, in which human nature is malleable and perfectible. A Conflict of Visions offers a compelling case that these opposing visions are behind the ethical and ideological disputes of yesterday and today.

Das vorliegende Werk bietet die erste vergleichende Analyse der japanischen Debatte um die Südostasien-Politik im Zeitraum von 1938-1941 und 1952-1960. In einer umfangreichen Diskursanalyse werden die konkurrierenden Argumente der wirtschaftlichen, militärischen und politischen Eliten, der Diplomaten und der Intellektuellen zu Japans Regionalstrategie systematisch dargestellt. Neben der Analyse von Kontinuitäten und Wandel wird ebenfalls gezeigt, wie die Debatte über die Beziehungen zu Südostasien dazu diente, tiefergehende Fragen nach der Identität Japans, seinen Beziehungen zu den westlichen Ländern, und dem Verhältnis zu Asien zu verhandeln, und eröffnet damit neue Perspektiven für das Feld der diplomatischen Ideengeschichte Japans. Heiko Lang lehrt als Post-Doc im Bereich Internationale Beziehungen an der Hōsei-Universität in Tokyo.

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

The American West used to be a story of gunfights, glory, wagon trails, and linear progress. Historians such as Frederick Jackson Turner and Hollywood movies such as Stagecoach (1939) and Shane (1953) cast the trans-Mississippi region as a frontier of epic proportions where 'savagery' met 'civilization' and boys became men.During the late 1980s, this old way of seeing the West came under heavy fire. Scholars such as Patricia Nelson Limerick and Richard White forged a fresh story of the region, a new vision of the West, based around the conquest of peoples and landscapes.This book explores the bipolar world of Turner's Old West and Limerick's New West and reveals the values and ambiguities associated with both historical traditions. Sections on Lewis and Clark, the frontier and the cowboy sit alongside work on Indian genocide and women's trail diaries. Images of the region as seen through the arcade Western, Hollywood film and Disney theme parks confirm the West as a symbolic and contested landscape.Tapping into popular fascination with the Cowboy, Hollywood movies, the Indian Wars, and Custer's Last Stand, the authors show the reader how to deconstruct the imagery and reality surrounding Western history.Key Features*Uses popular subjects (the Cowboy, Hollywood westerns, the Indian Wars, and Custer's Last Stand) to enliven the text*Includes 13 b+w illustrations*Interdisciplinary approach covers film, literature, art and historical artefacts
