Dark, Depressing Riddle Germans, Jews, and the Meaning of the Volk in the Theology of Paul Althaus

Dark, Depressing Riddle Germans, Jews, and the Meaning of the Volk in the Theology of Paul Althaus

Author: Ryan Tafilowski Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/10/2019

At the twilight of the Weimar Republic, politicians, scientists, and theologians were engaged in debates surrounding the so-called Jewish Question. When the Nazi Party came to power in 1933, these discussions took on a new sense of urgency and poignancy. As state measures against Jews unfolded, theological conceptions of the meaning of Israel and Judaism began to impact living, breathing Jewish persons. In this study, Ryan Tafilowski traces the thought of the Lutheran theologian Paul Althaus (18881966), who once greeted the rise of Hitler as a gift and miracle of God, as he negotiated the Jewish Question and its meaning for his understanding of Germanness across the Weimar Republic, the Nazi years, and the post-war period. In particular, the study uncovers the paradoxical categories Althaus used to interpret the ongoing theological significance of the Jewish people, whom he considered both an imminent threat to German ethnic identity and yet a mysterious cipher by which Germans might decode their own spiritual destiny in world history. Sketching the peculiar contours of Althaus theology of Israel, this study offers a fresh interpretation of the Erlangen Opinion on the Aryan Paragraph, which is an important artifact not only of the Kirchenkampf, but also of the complex and ambivalent history of Christian antisemitism. By bringing Althaus into conversation with some of the most influential theologians of the twentieth centuryfrom Karl Barth and Emil Brunner to Rudolf Bultmann and Dietrich BonhoefferTafilowski broadens the scope of his inquiry to vital questions of political theology, ethnic identity, social ethics, and ecclesiology. As Christian theologians must once again reckon with questions of national self-understanding under the pressures of mass migration and resurgent nationalisms, this investigation into the logic of ethno-nationalist theologies is a timely contribution.

Nazism, The Holocaust, and the Middle East Arab and Turkish Responses

Nazism, The Holocaust, and the Middle East Arab and Turkish Responses

Author: Francis R. Nicosia Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/10/2019

Given their geographical separation from Europe, ethno-religious and cultural diversity, and subordinate status within the Nazi racial hierarchy, Middle Eastern societies were both hospitable as well as hostile to National Socialist ideology during the 1930s and 1940s. By focusing on Arab and Turkish reactions to German anti-Semitism and the persecution and mass-murder of European Jews during this period, this expansive collection surveys the institutional and popular reception of Nazism in the Middle East and North Africa. It provides nuanced and scholarly yet accessible case studies of the ways in which nationalism, Islam, anti-Semitism, and colonialism intertwined, all while sensitive to the region's political, cultural, and religious complexities.

The Far Right and the Environment Politics, Discourse and Communication

The Far Right and the Environment Politics, Discourse and Communication

Author: Bernhard (University of Leicester, UK) Forchtner Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 18/09/2019

At the beginning of the twenty-first century, both the crisis of liberal democracy, as visible in, for example, the rise of far-right actors in Europe and the United States, and environmental crises, from declining biodiversity to climate change, are increasingly in the public spotlight. Whilst both areas have been analysed extensively on their own, The Far Right and the Environment: Politics, Discourse and Communication provides much needed insights into their intersection by illuminating the environmental communication of far-right party and non-party actors in Europe and the United States. Although commonly perceived as a 'left-wing' issue today, concerns over the natural environment by the far right have a long, ideology-driven history. Thus, it is not surprising that some members of the far right offer distinctive ecological visions of communal life, though, for example, climate-change scepticism is voiced too. Investigating this range of stances within their discourse about the natural environment provides a window into the wider politics of the far right and points to a close connection between the politics of identity and the imagination of nature. Connecting the fields of environmental communication and study of the far right, contributions to this edited volume therefore offer timely assessments of this often-overlooked dimension of far-right politics.

The New Man in Radical Right Ideology and Practice, 1919-45

The New Man in Radical Right Ideology and Practice, 1919-45

Author: Jorge (Universidad de los Andes, Chile) Dagnino Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 25/07/2019

Bringing together an expert group of established and emerging scholars, this book analyses the pervasive myth of the 'new man' in various fascist movements and far-right regimes between 1919 and 1945. Through a series of ground-breaking case studies focusing on countries in Europe, but with additional chapters on Argentina, Brazil and Japan, The New Man in Radical Right Ideology and Practice, 1919-45 argues that what many national forms of far-right politics understood at the time as a so-called 'anthropological revolution' is essential to understanding this ideology's bio-political, often revolutionary dynamics. It explores how these movements promoted the creation of a new, ideal human, what this ideal looked like and what this things tell us about fascism's emergence in the 20th century. The years after World War One saw the rise of regimes and movements professing totalitarian aims. In the case of revolutionary, radical-right movements, these totalising goals extended to changing the very nature of humanity through modern science, propaganda and conquest. At its most extreme, one of the key aims of fascism - the most extreme manifestation of radical right politics between the wars - was to create a 'new man'. Naturally, this manifested itself in different ways in varying national contexts and this volume explores these manifestations in order to better comprehend early 20th-century fascism both within national boundaries and in a broader, transnational context.

Unorthodox Fascism New Right, Third Position and the Spectre of Multiracial Fascism

Unorthodox Fascism New Right, Third Position and the Spectre of Multiracial Fascism

Author: Spencer Sunshine Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/06/2019

Recently the contemporary fascist movement has incorporated both Left-wing ideology and organizational decentralization, as well as engaging in cross-recruiting from both Left-wing circles and cultural and social movements usually associated with the Left. This book examines the long history behind these recent developments and delves into the significance of this trend for both the Left and Right. A work of political and intellectual history, this book studies Left/Right crossover movements, starting in the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century circles from which the classical fascist movement arose. It will trace the evolution of non-traditional fascism as it developed in Western Europe, before being imported to the United States. There it will be shown to combine with the U.S. Left, as well as local U.S. liberal political traditions. These untraditional fascist elements are small in number, but represent a different style of politics that has the ability to become successful-either as an independent movement, or as a dominant ideology in more traditional organized racist circles. Offering a unique insight into a political approach that is poorly documented and widely misunderstood, this book is essential reading for students, scholars and activists interested in the fascist movement, as well as political movements and ideologies more generally.

Latin American Dictatorships in the Era of Fascism The Corporatist Wave

Latin American Dictatorships in the Era of Fascism The Corporatist Wave

Author: Antonio (University of Lisbon, Portugal) Costa Pinto Format: Hardback Release Date: 26/06/2019

Latin American Dictatorships in the Era of Fascism focuses on the reverse-wave of dictatorships that emerged in Latin America during the 1930s and the transnational dissemination of authoritarian institutions in the era of fascism. Antonio Costa Pinto revisits the study of authoritarian alternatives to liberal democracy in 1930s Latin America from the perspective of the diffusion of corporatism in the world of inter-war dictatorships. The book explores what drove the horizontal spread of corporatism in Latin America, the processes and direction of transnational diffusion, and how social and political corporatism became a central set of new institutions utilized by dictatorships during this era. These issues are studied through a transnational and comparative research design to reveal the extent of Latin America's participation during the corporatist wave which by 1942 had significantly reduced the number of democratic regimes in the world. This book is essential reading for students studying Latin American history, 1930s dictatorships and authoritarianism, and the spread of corporatism.
