Examines ambivalent treatments of the Jew in works of German literature by authors who were not dyed-in-the-wool or unalterable antisemites. Gustav Freitag was a liberal, and Wilhelm Raabe conveyed different images of male and female Jews. The fiction of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, in which Galician Jews were portrayed negatively, contrasted with his professed solidarity with Jews. The fiction of Theodor Fontane reveals his antipathy to Jews, though less obviously than his correspondence. The examination of Thomas Mann focuses on his early antisemitic story "Waelsungenblut".

By incorporating a variety of critical approaches within a feminist framework, the author here argues that Mexican women writers participate in a crucial project of unsettling dominant discourses as they strive for new ways of capturing the ambivalent position of the Mexican women in their texts.

Simon and Alexander describe how leading magazines and the New York Times covered and interpreted United States immigration policy, and public attitudes about the impact of immigrants on the American economy and social fabric. The authors examine print media coverage of immigration issues from 1880, the onset of the "new immigration," to the present, and find that most magazines, like most Americans, have vehemently opposed new immigrants.

First published in French in 1979, “The Ambivalence of Scarcity” was a groundbreaking work on mimetic theory. Now expanded upon with new, specially written, and never-before-published conference texts and essays, this revised edition explores René Girard’s philosophy in three sections: economy and economics, mimetic theory, and violence and politics in modern societies. The first section argues that though mimetic theory is in many ways critical of modern economic theory, this criticism can contribute to the enrichment of economic thinking. The second section explores the issues of nonviolence and misrecognition (méconnaissance), which have been at the center of many discussions of Girard’s work. The final section proposes mimetic analyses of the violence typical of modern societies, from high school bullying to genocide and terrorist attacks. Politics, Dumouchel argues, is a violent means of protecting us from our own violent tendencies, and it can at times become the source of the very savagery from which it seeks to protect us. The book’s conclusion analyzes the relationship between ethics and economics, opening new avenues of research and inviting further exploration. Dumouchel’s introduction reflects on the importance of René Girard’s work in relation to ongoing research, especially in social sciences and philosophy.

Various assessments of some major features of the police occupation and role by psychiatrists, attorneys, administrators, and others are presented in this collection of papers. The volume stresses the uncertainties, ambiguities, and ambivalences of the police role in society in the past and present which are likely to persist in the foreseeable future. Historical similarities are revealed in the relative permanence and continuity of the problems of the police as they confront violent and disruptive events in every epoch. Suggestions and predictions with regard to the future roles of the police are made. The organizational and institutional constraints of the police system are examined, with particular attention to the bureaucratic qualities that determine the lifestyles, career lines, and policy decisions of police organizations. It is said that the police share many of the dilemmas and unresolved conflicts of professionalization common to other occupations. The police world view is examined, and the sources of their values of loyalty, authoritarianism, and defensiveness are explored. They are compared with other professional groups which undergo a similar estrangement as they become more experienced in their work situation. Several articles deal with the issue of police corruption. A chapter on police discretion analyzes some factors which affect a police officer's virtually uncontrolled discretion in the performance of his duty. The problems of police work relations with urban communities are discussed, including the causes of the constantly high level of hostility toward police. An overview of legal issues that touch upon the police is presented. Critiques of the police by a number of persons are offered, and suggestions for necessary changes are made. The final chapter contains perceptions of several authorities on the directions law enforcement will follow in the next few decades.

This book explores the weird and mean and in-between that characterize everyday expression online, from absurdist photoshops to antagonistic Twitter hashtags to deceptive identity play. Whitney Phillips and Ryan M. Milner focus especially on the ambivalence of this expression: the fact that it is too unwieldy, too variable across cases, to be essentialized as old or new, vernacular or institutional, generative or destructive. Online expression is, instead, all of the above. This ambivalence, the authors argue, hinges on available digital tools. That said, there is nothing unexpected or surprising about even the strangest online behavior. Ours is a brave new world, and there is nothing new under the sun – a point necessary to understanding not just that online spaces are rife with oddity, mischief, and antagonism, but why these behaviors matter. The Ambivalent Internet is essential reading for students and scholars of digital media and related fields across the humanities, as well as anyone interested in mediated culture and expression.

Stefan Heym (1913-2001) was an important catalyst for the collapse of the Berlin Wall, a writer-politician who from the very beginning of his long and often dangerous career saw himself as a fighter for a better society. The twelve essays in this volume explore his involvement with the major political issues of his age, as well as less well known aspects of his activities - his operations in US psychological warfare, for example, and the attempts by organs of GDR government to obstruct his critical publications. The emphasis is above all on his commitment to aspects of Socialism. The wide geographical range of the contributors (from six different countries) reflects the increasing interest in Heym throughout the world. Stefan Heym (1913-2001) hatte eine wichtige Vermittlerfunktion im Rahmen der deutschen Wiedervereinigung. Er war ein Dichter und Politiker, der sich während seines langen und oft gefährlichen Lebens als Kämpfer für eine bessere Gesellschaft sah. Die zwölf Aufsätze in diesem Band analysieren Heyms Engagement für die großen politischen Fragen seiner Zeit. Sie befassen sich auch mit weniger bekannten Aspekten von Heyms Tätigkeit - z.B. mit seinen Aktivitäten in der amerikanischen psychologischen Kriegsführung, und den Versuchen der DDR-Zensur, seine regimekritischen Veröffentlichungen zu unterbinden. Das Schwergewicht der Beiträge liegt auf Heyms Verpflichtung zum Sozialismus. Die geographische Bandbreite der Beiträge (aus sechs verschiedenen Ländern) zeigt das weltweit zunehmende Interesse an Heym.

Ambivalent Europeans examines the implications of living on the fringes of Europe. In Malta, public debate is dominated by the question of Europe, both at a policy level - whether or not to join the EU - and at the level of national identity - whether or not the Maltese are 'European'. Jon Mitchell identifies a profound ambivalence towards Europe, and also more broadly to the key processes of 'modernisation'. He traces this tendency through a number of key areas of social life - gender, the family, community, politics, religion and ritual.
