  • Children and Youth on the Front Lineby Jo Boyden; Joanna de Berry

    Berghahn Books 2004; US$ 27.95

    War leads not just to widespread death but also to extensive displacement, overwhelming fear, and economic devastation. It weakens social ties, threatens household survival and undermines the family's capacity to care for its most vulnerable members. Every year it kills and maims countless numbers of young people, undermines thousands of others... more...

  • Shaping the Transnational Sphereby Davide Rodogno; Bernhard Struck; Jakob Vogel

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 120.00

    In the second half of the nineteenth century a new kind of social and cultural actor came to the fore: the expert. During this period complex processes of modernization, industrialization, urbanization, and nation-building gained pace, particularly in Western Europe and North America. These processes created new forms of specialized expertise that... more...

  • Modernist Imagination, Theby Warren Breckman; Peter E. Gordon; A. Dirk Moses; Samuel Moyn

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 39.95

    Some of the most exciting and innovative work in the humanities currently takes place at the intersection of intellectual history and critical theory. Just as critical theorists are becoming more aware of the historicity of theory, contemporary practitioners of modern intellectual history are recognizing their potential contributions to theoretical... more...

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

    Berghahn Books 2009; US$ 29.95

    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,... more...

  • Practice of War, Theby Aparna Rao; Michael Bollig; Monika Bock

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 37.95

    The fact is that war comes in many guises and its effects continue to be felt long after peace is proclaimed. This challenges the anthropologists who write of war as participant observers. Participant observation inevitably deals with the here and now, with the highly specific. It is only over the long view that one can begin to see the commonalities... more...

  • Civil Society and Gender Justiceby Karen Hagemann; Sonya Michel; Gunilla Budde

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 34.95

    Civil society and civic engagement have increasingly become topics of discussion at the national and international level. The editors of this volume ask, does the concept of "civil society" include gender equality and gender justice? Or, to frame the question differently, is civil society a feminist concept? Conversely, does feminism need the concept... more...

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

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 34.95

    Divided into three thematic parts to guide the reader, this important volume documents the development and implementation of refugee policy in South Africa over a 10-year period from 1996 until 2006. In doing so, it addresses issues of detention, gender, children and health as well as welfare policies for refugees. The contributions, all written... more...

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

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 75.00

    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...

  • Not Born a Refugee Womanby Maroussia Hajdukowski-Ahmed; Nazilla Khanlou; Helene Moussa

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 34.95

    Not Born a Refugee Woman is an in-depth inquiry into the identity construction of refugee women. It challenges and rethinks current identity concepts, policies, and practices in the context of a globalizing environment, and in the increasingly racialized post-September 11th context, from the perspective of refugee women. This collection brings... more...

  • Narrating the Nationby Stefan Berger; Linas Eriksonas; Andrew Mycock

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 37.95

    A sustained and systematic study of the construction, erosion and reconstruction of national histories across a wide variety of states is highly topical and extremely relevant in the context of the accelerating processes of Europeanization and globalization. However, as demonstrated in this volume, histories have not, of course, only been written... more...
