Описание: The fall of the Berlin Wall. The end of apartheid in South Africa. The US civil rights movement that inspired a young Barack Obama. The toppling of Augusto Pinochet in Chile and of Slobodan Milosevic in Serbia. 'People power' in the Philippines and 'Orange Revolution' in Ukraine. What all these dramatic and disparate historical developments have in common is the often decisive presence of civil resistance. This pathbreaking volume describes and analyses most of the major cases of the use of civil resistance across nearly a hundred years, from Gandhi's salt march in 1930 to Buddhist monks marching through the streets of Rangoon in 2007. Written by leading specialists, and illustrated throughout with historic photographs, it asks why some attempts at mass non-violent action succeeded in attaining their objectives while others failed. And it explores, rigorously and comparatively, the complex relationships between civil resistance and other factors of power, including war,

Описание: In an attempt to counter the insular narratives of much of the sesquicentennial commemorations of the Civil War in the United States, editors David T. Gleeson and Simon Lewis present this collection of essays that examine the war as more than a North American conflict, one with transnational concerns. The book, while addressing the origins of the Civil War, places the struggle over slavery and sovereignty in the United States in the context of other conflicts in the Western hemisphere. Additionally Gleeson and Lewis offer an analysis of the impact of the war and its results overseas. Although the Civil War was the bloodiest conflict in U.S. history and arguably its single most defining event, this work underscores the reality that the war was by no means the only conflict that ensnared the global imperial powers in the mid-nineteenth century. In some ways the Civil War was just another part of contemporary conflicts over the definitions of liberty, democracy, and nationhood. The editors have successfully linked numerous provocative themes and convergences of time and space to make the work both coherent and cogent. Subjects include such disparate topics as Florence Nightingale, Gone with the Wind, war crimes and racial violence, and choices of allegiance made by immigrants to the United States. While we now take for granted the nation's values of freedom and democracy, we cannot understand the impact of the Civil War and the victorious ""new birth of freedom"" without thinking globally.The contributors to The Civil War as Global Conflict reveal that Civil War-era attitudes toward citizenship and democracy were far from fixed or stable. Race, ethnicity, nationhood, and slavery were subjects of fierce controversy. Examining the Civil War in a global context requires us to see the conflict as a seminal event in the continuous struggles of people to achieve liberty and fulfill the potential of human freedom. The book concludes with a coda that reconnects the global with the local and provides ways for Americans to discuss the war and its legacy more productively.
