Polarization, Populism, and the New Politics

‘Populism’ is one of the most frequently used terms in today’s political discussions. From Turkey to the United States of America, the effect of populist politicians is felt more than ever today.

Rethinking Presuppositions

This innovative volume proposes an overturning in the study of presuppositions. Beginning with a critical discussion of the most influential approaches, both in linguistics and philosophy, it shows that mainstream debate has not actually studied presuppositions, but rather the means to make presuppositions. In order to overcome this paradox, by relying on systematic and controllable linguistic tests, this text demonstrates that presuppositions trace a curve ranging from natural ontology to the lexicon. At the top of the curve are contents working as presuppositions for the whole human form of life and without the need of any trigger. At the bottom are contents working as presuppositions for the time of a speech act and thanks to some trigger. From this original point of view, this book revisits the classic topics of the debate and offers solid linguistic ground to the elucidation of natural ontology. This makes this volume both challenging and essential reading for researchers and scholars in pragmatics, semantics and philosophy of language.

Semiotics and Visual Communication III

The chapters in this book consist of selected papers that were presented at the 3rd International Conference and Poster Exhibition on Semiotics and Visual Communication at the Cyprus University of Technology in November 2017. They investigate the theme of the third conference, “The Semiotics of Branding”, and look at branding and brand design as endorsing a reputation and inhabiting a status of almost mythical proportion that has triumphed over the past few decades. Emerging from its forerunner (corporate identity) to incorporate advertising, consumer lifestyles and attitudes, image-rights, market-research, customisation, global expansion, sound and semiotics, and ‘the consumer-as-the-brand’, the word ‘branding’ currently appears to be bigger than its own umbrella definition. From tribal markers, such as totems, scarifications and tattoos, to emblems of power, language, fashion, architectural space, insignias of communal groups, heraldic devices, religious and political symbols, national flags and the like, a form of branding is at work that responds to the need to determine the presence and interaction of specific groups, persons or institutions through shared codes of meaning.

Surveillance and Memory

This book contains all the reports written during 129 days in 1948, 1949, and 1950 by the secret police agents of the Securitate charged with the surveillance of the author’s father, sociologist Anton Golopentia, as well as all the transcriptions of the phone conversations in their house at that time. It also brings together some of Golopentia’s declarations later on, while investigated as a detained witness, and personal memories. The book provides insights into post-WWII Eastern European history, particularly the beginning of the communist regime and political repression in Romania, and will be useful to researchers (historians, psychologists, anthropologists, and literary specialists), as well as professors and students in universities and schools.

The Existential Foundations of Political Economy

This volume argues that economic thought has long been shaped by deeply human forms of attachment, anxiety, desire, fear of suffering and death, and even historical speculation about the ultimate destiny of humanity. Starting in the 17th century, modern economics began to incorporate patterns of speculation and rhetoric that mirror postulates found in religion and the philosophy of history. This text demonstrates that the political significance of economic theory can only be fully understood when the existential commitments that motivated its seminal thinkers, from Smith and Marx to Hayek and beyond, have been excavated. Featuring incisive examinations and revisionist interpretations of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Adam Smith, Karl Marx, F.A. Hayek, and Karl Polanyi, it is powerfully written and exhaustively researched. It will appeal to anyone interested in political economy, the history of political thought, or the roots of contemporary ideologies.

The Nation and its Margins

This volume questions the idea that the nation-state is the only available form of community, and challenges its hegemonic control over forms of socio-cultural belonging. The contributions here explore cross-cultural and transnational encounters which highlight narratives that escape the neat boundaries constructed by nationalities. They complicate our understanding of peoples and groups and the varying spaces they inhabit by allowing narratives that have been made invisible, due to hegemonic national control, to emerge. This volume throws light on moments of cultural encounters in the Global South, specifically South Asia, South-east Asia, West Asia, and Latin America, exploring what happens when diverse communities come together to challenge the notion that claiming national identity is the only acceptable mode of being, belonging, and existing in the world. In doing so, the book reveals other radically innovative forms of attaining cohesion and identity.

The Therapeutic, Nutritional and Cosmetic Properties of Donkey Milk

This book explores the potential beneficial health effects of donkey milk, and provides valid scientific evidence for a better appraisal of this product. Milk is the most complete natural food available and is a basic ingredient of the human diet for both children and adults. Milk produced by all mammals contains basically the same nutrients, but considering the differences in nutritional requirements, milk’s chemical composition differs in each mammalian species.The use of donkey milk in human nutrition has been known from the Roman age. Recent clinical trials have tested it as a possible replacement for dairy cows milk in infants affected by cow milk protein allergy. The results have clearly demonstrated that donkey milk’s chemical and nutritional properties are very similar to those determined in human milk.This book will appeal to pediatricians, allergists, and nutritionists, as well as farmers and veterinarians.

Transatlantic Intellectual Networks, 1914-1964

The twelve essays in this book – by scholars from the U.S., France, Germany, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic – offer new transnational perspectives in transatlantic historical, literary, and cultural studies. They explore the special role of American and European intellectuals as agents of transatlantic cultural transfer, and examine the mechanisms and instruments through which artists, writers and intellectuals communicated across oceans and national borders, in the half century between 1914 and 1964. Their focus is on transatlantic networks and the instruments of culture through which such networks become operative as sites of cross-cultural exchange, circulation and interaction: magazines, cafés, publishing houses, book fairs, agents, translators, and mediators – and last but not least, transatlantic personal friendships. Contending that the dynamics of transatlantic cultural transfer need to be understood as reciprocal and multi-directional, they also exemplify the shift within transatlantic intellectual history from a traditional concern with European-U.S. relations to a multidirectional, triangular exploration of cultural, political and intellectual relations between Europe, the United States, and Latin America.

US Policy toward Chile in the 1970s

This book provides a detailed analysis of the bureaucratic politics of US foreign policymaking with respect to Chile during the 1970s. On the basis of original interviews with key officials from the Nixon, Ford and Carter administrations, congressional staffers, human rights activists, and Chilean opposition figures during the Pinochet dictatorship, together with extensive archival research (in the US, Canada and the UK), it recreates the internal debates in Washington over appropriate policy approaches and traces how faithfully these approaches were implemented down to the level of desk officer in the US embassy in Santiago. Assessing what impact US influence had on developments inside Chile is also an important part of this study. The findings make for vital reading for students and researchers of US foreign policy making, diplomatic history, and US-Chilean relations, although the book will also appeal to the general reader with an interest in the same issues.
