This companion provides an indispensable overview of contemporary and classical issues in social and cultural anthropology. Although anthropology has expanded greatly over time in terms of the diversity of topics in which its practitioners engage, many of the broad themes and topics at the heart of anthropological thought remain perennially vital, such as understanding order and change, diversity and continuity, and conflict and co-operation in the reproduction of social life. Bringing together leading scholars in the field, the contributors to this volume provide us with thoughtful and fruitful ways of thinking about a number of contemporary and long-standing arenas of work where both established and more recent researchers are engaged. The companion begins by exploring classic topics such as Religion; Rituals; Language and Culture; Violence; and Gender. This is followed by a focus on current developments within the discipline including Human Rights; Globalization; and Diasporas and Cosmopolitanism. It provides an interesting and challenging look at the state of current thinking in anthropology, serving as a rich resource for scholars and students alike.

'In the last two decades, the history of the Counter-Reformation has been stretched and re-shaped in numerous directions. Reflecting the variety and innovation that characterize studies of early modern Catholicism today, this volume incorporates topics as diverse as life cycle and community, science and the senses, the performing and visual arts, material objects and print culture, war and the state, sacred landscapes and urban structures. Moreover, it challenges the conventional chronological parameters of the Counter-Reformation and introduces the reader to the latest research on global Catholicism. The Ashgate Research Companion to the Counter-Reformation presents a comprehensive examination of recent scholarship on early modern Catholicism in its many guises. It examines how the Tridentine reforms inspired conflict and conversion, and evaluates lives and identities, spirituality, culture and religious change. This wide-ranging and original research guide is a unique resource for scholars and students of European and transnational history.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Veils and veiling are controversial topics in social and political life, generating debates across the world. The veil is enmeshed within a complex web of relations encompassing politics, religion and gender, and conflicts over the nature of power, legitimacy, belief, freedom, agency and emancipation. In recent years, the veil has become both a potent and unsettling symbol and a rallying-point for discourse and rhetoric concerning women, Islam and the nature of politics. Early studies in gender, doctrine and politics of veiling appeared in the 1970s following the Islamic revival and ’re-veiling’ trends that were dramatically expressed by 1979’s Iranian Islamic revolution. In the 1990s, research focussed on the development of both an ’Islamic culture industry’ and greater urban middle class consumption of ’Islamic’ garments and dress styles across the Islamic world. In the last decade academics have studied Islamic fashion and marketing, the political role of the headscarf, the veiling of other religious groups such as Jews and Christians, and secular forms of modest dress. Using work from contributors across a range of disciplinary backgrounds and locations, this book brings together these research strands to form the most comprehensive book ever conceived on this topic. As such, this handbook will be of interest to scholars and students of fashion, gender studies, religious studies, politics and sociology.

Wahrscheinlicher Grund des ungewöhnlichen Buch-Erfolges ist der revolutionäre Inhalt von "Theologie der Hoffnung". Moltmann propagiert darin ein umstürzlerisches, gesellschaftsänderndes - wie er sagt: ursprüngliches - Christentum und offeriert damit Christen und Kirchen eine Theologie, die zu aktiven, ja aggressiven Auseinandersetzungen mit der politischen Umwelt ermächtigt und anfeuert. Die Christen, so ruft Moltmann seine Glaubensbrüder auf, sollen der Wirklichkeit nicht mehr "die Schleppe nachtragen, sondern die Fackel voran".

Seit dem 6. März 2015 sendet der Deutschlandfunk jeden Freitag die Sendereihe »Koran erklärt«. Bis Dezember 2016 erläuterten darin 51 islamische Theologen und Islamwissenschaftler aus acht Ländern 84 kurze Texte aus dem Koran. Diese Texte sind im vorliegenden Band versammelt. Ergänzt werden diese Auslegungen durch ein Vorwort von Willi Steul, dem Intendanten von Deutschlandradio, sowie drei Hintergrundessays: Thorsten Gerald Schneiders gibt einen Überblick über die Geschichte der Koranauslegung, Angelika Neuwirth problematisiert die »Koranexegese zwischen Theologie und Orientalistik«, und Sebastian Engelbrecht rekonstruiert »Die Beteiligung des Islams am Rundfunk in Deutschland«. Das Buch bietet Information und Aufklärung über den Koran. Es ermöglicht einen Zugang zur heiligen Schrift einer Weltreligion und lädt zu einer differenzierten Betrachtung des Korans ein. Das sind Aufgaben des öffentlichrechtlichen Rundfunks – gerade in Zeiten, in denen Ängste und Emotionen zu Vorurteilen und Ausgrenzung führen.

Aus der Misere der islamischen Staaten erwächst eine globale Gefahr. Eine innovationsfeindliche Kultur, eine rapide wachsende, dabei arme und unterdrückte Bevölkerung, zur Neige gehende Erdölvorkommen und klimatische Probleme ergeben ein explosives Gemisch. Der deutsch-ägyptische Politikwissenschaftler Hamed Abdel-Samad zeichnet ein düsteres Bild vom Zustand und der Zukunft der islamischen Kultur und wagt eine scharfe, zwingende Prognose für deren Zukunft: Die islamischen Staaten werden zerfallen, der Islam wird als politische und gesellschaftliche Idee, er wird als Kultur untergehen.
