Social Democracy in the Making

An expansive and ambitious intellectual history of democratic socialism from one of the world’s leading intellectual historians and social ethicists The fallout from twenty years of neoliberal economic globalism has sparked a surge of interest in the old idea of democratic socialism—a democracy in which the people control the economy and government, no group dominates any other, and every citizen is free, equal, and included. With a focus on the intertwined legacies of Christian socialism and Social Democratic politics in Britain and Germany, this book traces the story of democratic socialism from its birth in the nineteenth century through the mid†‘1960s. Examining the tenets on which the movement was founded and how it adapted to different cultural, religious, and economic contexts from its beginnings through the social and political traumas of the twentieth century, Gary Dorrien reminds us that Christian socialism paved the way for all liberation theologies that make the struggles of oppressed peoples the subject of redemption. He argues for a decentralized economic democracy and anti-imperial internationalism.

Jesus Is Victor

IN THIS INNOVATIVE WORK, Christian T. Collins Winn examines the role played by the Pietist pastors Johann Christoph Blumhardt (1805-1880) and Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt (1842-1919) in the development of Karl Barth's theology. The disparate theological themes and dynamics of the two Blumhardts were crystallized in their eschatology, and Collins Winn argues that as early as 1916 Barth had appropriated this "Blumhardtian eschatological deposit" in ways fundamental to his own theological development. Against the grain of current Barth scholarship, this book establishes how the theology of the Blumhardts, though critically reconstructed, was not merely an episodic influence on Barth's work. Instead, the Blumhardts had a complex and enduring impact on Barth, such that their imprint can be detected even in the mature theology of his Church Dogmatics. In treading new ground into Barth's theological formation, Jesus Is Victor! represents an important contribution to the field of Barth studies.

Secularization and the Working Class brings together contributions from thirteen Central European historians who have taken a long-term interest in the issue of the secularization of modern society and social issues affecting the working class. By using contemporary historical methods they have researched the theoretical aspects of secularization theories as well as individual cases which illustrate Czech developments within the framework of the Austrian monarchy. These cases touch upon working conditions, working-class organizations and political parties, cultural life and means of communication. Among other things they present the conflicts that led to rifts within society. This representative collection of texts is will appeal to historians of modern history interested in the fascinating issues of European development, all those who are interested in the living conditions of the working class in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The Weimar Republic Sourcebook

A laboratory for competing visions of modernity, the Weimar Republic (1918-1933) continues to haunt the imagination of the twentieth century. Its political and cultural lessons retain uncanny relevance for all who seek to understand the tensions and possibilities of our age. The Weimar Republic Sourcebook represents the most comprehensive documentation of Weimar culture, history, and politics assembled in any language. It invites a wide community of readers to discover the richness and complexity of the turbulent years in Germany before Hitler's rise to power. Drawing from such primary sources as magazines, newspapers, manifestoes, and official documents (many unknown even to specialists and most never before available in English), this book challenges the traditional boundaries between politics, culture, and social life. Its thirty chapters explore Germany's complex relationship to democracy, ideologies of "reactionary modernism," the rise of the "New Woman," Bauhaus architecture, the impact of mass media, the literary life, the tradition of cabaret and urban entertainment, and the situation of Jews, intellectuals, and workers before and during the emergence of fascism. While devoting much attention to the Republic's varied artistic and intellectual achievements (the Frankfurt School, political theater, twelve-tone music, cultural criticism, photomontage, and urban planning), the book is unique for its inclusion of many lesser-known materials on popular culture, consumerism, body culture, drugs, criminality, and sexuality; it also contains a timetable of major political events, an extensive bibliography, and capsule biographies. This will be a major resource and reference work for students and scholars in history; art; architecture; literature; social and political thought; and cultural, film, German, and women's studies.

No doubt, it is common to hear Christians today declaring their allegiance to God's kingdom. But what does this actually entail, and what difference does it make? In his characteristically provocative and daring way, Christoph Blumhardt articulates a vision of God's kingdom that turns much of our understanding of modern Christianity upside-down. In the present volume, available in English for the first time, Blumhardt leads readers to look at the gospel anew, challenging us to follow Jesus in a way that makes God's reign a reality, here and now. Bypassing vague notions of spirituality, as well as transcending simplistic approaches to faith, Blumhardt inspires us to actually live under the rule and reign of God.

My objective in writing that has been recorded thus far has been to discover the root cause of the current conflict between western and Middle Eastern factions, a confrontation which has been labeled a struggle for freedom against terrorism. Such a discovery may enable us to identify a solution hopefully permanent for the seemingly futile battle we are facing. In making this attempt, questions have been raised. Among them, foremost, have deceptive foreign policies of the West led to a humiliation of people of the Middle East? Or has the conviction of certain radical Islamists like Al Qaeda that they must kill their adversaries, driven this struggle? Indeed, is all that has transpired the result of one basic cause, or are several factors at work in extending the bitterness of the situation? Basically, the exploration into answers for these questions has been to study the history and philosophy of contending forces from the standpoint of their religious principles as they are understood by the masses, as well as the intellectuals. A second question that we have attempted to consider: is the character of God, the Creator, of this universe with its countless planets like that of a king, or of a president, or of a corporation CEO, who attempts to maintain dominance of His Creation through the endless activities of fanatical devotees, such as Hezbollah, and Fedahye (to sacrifice), which may be considered to be backstair operatives? A third consideration: If not for the gigantic oil resources of the Middle East, would we be participating in this grievous present war? A fourth quandary: Had not Palestine been a colony of the British government following the first World War, would the current nation of Israel actually exist in the present location? A fifth question: Is it possible for the West to enjoy the benefits of Middle Eastern oil without utilizing the oppressive techniques of colonization, deceitful manipulation, or war? And finally, a sixth query: Are the foreign political strategies of the Western Powers really acceptable to its people: the citizens of the USA, or Europe, and of the rest of the world? And may I repeat? In this writing there is no attempt to cast disrespect or to judge anyone...or any group or country. Rather, this book is written with the intention of providing unbiased information to those who choose to peruse it. All those of us who can find no justification in the pursuit of actions that result in the killing of innocent human beings, be they military or civilian, in the name of God or for the achievement of freedom and human rights, will find it interesting to deal carefully with the considerations of this text as we seek to explain the net effect of our current dilemma. It is in keeping with the solemnity of this quest that you are invited to share this wresting of the soul with us.

This book discusses the political setting of Protestant theology in the German-language area (including Switzerland), and the efforts made in the period 1890-1933 to develop forms of social thought and action on Christian presuppositions. It discusses the theoretical challenge posed by Max Weber, and the more far-reaching challenges offered by the outbreak of war in 1914 and the political instability of the 1920s. Central to the argument are the efforts of theologians from Stoecker and Harnack to Barth and Tillich to assess Socialism from a Christian point of view, and their difficulties in coming to terms with the daily politics of operative political systems. The book treats the subject from an historian's viewpoint as has not previously been attempted in English or German.
