    Berghahn Books 2007; US$ 34.95

    Crimes committed by Jews, especially ritual murders, have long been favorite targets in the antisemitic press. This book investigates popular and scientific conceptualizations of criminals current in Austria and Germany at the turn of the last century and compares these to those in the contemporary antisemitic discourse. It challenges received historiographic... more...

  • Modalities of Changeby James Wilkerson; Robert Parkin

    Berghahn Books 2012; US$ 34.95

    While in some cases modernity may dominate 'traditional' forms of expression, in others, the modern is embraced as a welcome source of new ideas that can modify 'tradition' while still keeping it within its own bounds. Maintaining a strong and distinct cultural identity with the help of modernity helps representatives of that identity cope with... more...

  • German Scholars and Ethnic Cleansing, 1919-1945by Michael Fahlbusch; Ingo Haar

    Berghahn Books 2005; US$ 34.95

    Recently, there has been a major shift in the focus of historical research on World War II towards the study of the involvements of scholars and academic institutions in the crimes of the Third Reich. The roots of this involvement go back to the 1920s. At that time right-wing scholars participated in the movement to revise the Versailles Treaty and... more...

  • Rethinking the Informal Cityby Felipe Hernández; Peter Kellett; Lea Knudsen Allen

    Berghahn Books 2009; US$ 34.95

    Latin American cities have always been characterized by a strong tension between what is vaguely described as their formal and informal dimensions. However, the terms formal and informal refer not only to the physical aspect of cities but also to their entire socio-political fabric. Informal cities and settlements exceed the structures of order, control... more...

  • The Power of Law in a Transnational Worldby Keebet von Benda-Beckmann; Franz von Benda-Beckmann; Anne Griffiths

    Berghahn Books 2009; US$ 34.95

    How is law mobilized and who has the power and authority to construct its meaning? This important volume examines this question as well as how law is constituted and reconfigured through social processes that frame both its continuity and transformation over time. The volume highlights how power is deployed under conditions of legal pluralism, exploring... more...

  • Advancing Refugee Protection in South Africaby Jeff Handmaker; Lee Anne de la Hunt; Jonathan Klaaren

  • Rebirth of a Cultureby Hillary Hope Herzog; Todd Herzog; Benjamin Lapp

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 27.95

    After 1945, Jewish writing in German was almost unimaginable-and then only in reference to the Shoah. Only in the 1980s, after a period of mourning, silence, and processing of the trauma, did a new Jewish literature evolve in Germany and Austria. This volume focuses on the re-emergence of a lively Jewish cultural scene in the German-speaking countries... more...

  • Knowing How to Knowby Narmala Halstead; Eric Hirsch; Judith Okely

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 29.95

    This volume examines some crucial issues in the conduct of fieldwork and ethnography and provides new insights into the problems of constructing anthropological knowledge. How is anthropological knowledge created from fieldwork, whose knowledge is this, who determines what is of significance in any ethnographic context, and how is the fieldsite extended... more...

  • Europe At the Seasideby Luciano Segreto; Carles Manera; Manfred Pohl

    Berghahn Books 2009; US$ 34.95

    Mass tourism is one of the most striking developments in postwar western societies, involving economic, social, cultural, and anthropological factors. For many countries it has become a significant, if not the primary, source of income for the resident population. The Mediterranean basin, which has long been a very popular destination, is explored... more...
