Performing a political identity usually involves more than just casting a vote. For Left-wingers in Turkey, Greece and Cyprus – countries that emerged as the only non-socialist constituents of South-eastern Europe after WWII – political preference meant immersion to distinct ways of life, to ‘cultures’: in times of dictatorship or persecution, the desire to find alternative ways to express themselves gave content to these cultures. In times of political normality, it was the echoes of such memories of precarity and loss that took the lead. This book explores the intersection between the politics and cultures of the Left since the sixties in Turkey, Greece and Cyprus. With the use of 12 case studies, the contributors expose the moments in which the Left has been claimed and performed, not only through political manifestos and traditional political boundaries, but also through corporeal acts, discursive practices and affective encounters. These are all transformed into distinct modalities of everyday life and conduct, which are commemorated, narrated or sung, versed, painted, or captured in photographic images and on reels of tape. By focusing on culture and performance, this book highlights the complex link between nationalism and internationalism in left-wing cultures, and illuminates the entanglements between the ways in which left-wingers experienced transitions from dictatorship to democracy and vice versa. As the first book to analyse cultures and performances of the Left in the three countries, The Politics of Culture in Turkey, Greece and Cyprus causes a rethinking of the boundaries of political practice and fosters new understandings of the formation of diverse expressions of the Left. As such, it will be a valuable resource for students and scholars of cultural and social anthropology, modern European history and political science.

‘This extraordinary collection is a game-changer. Featuring the cutting-edge work of over forty scholars from across the globe, The Routledge Handbook of the Global Sixties is breathtaking in its range, incisive in analyses, and revolutionary in method and evidence. Here, fifty years after that iconic "1968," Western Europe and North America are finally de-centered, if not provincialized, and we have the basis for a complete remapping, a thorough reinterpretation of the "Sixties."’ —Jean Allman, J.H. Hexter Professor in the Humanities; Director, Center for the Humanities, Washington University in St. Louis ‘This is a landmark achievement. It represents the most comprehensive effort to date to map out the myriad constitutive elements of the "Global Sixties" as a field of knowledge and inquiry. Richly illustrated and meticulously curated, this collection purposefully "provincializes" the United States and Western Europe while shifting the loci of interpretation to Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Latin America. It will become both a benchmark reference text for instructors and a gateway to future historical research.’ —Eric Zolov, Associate Professor of History; Director, Latin American & Caribbean Studies, Stony Brook University ‘This important and wide-ranging volume de-centers West-focused histories of the 1960s. It opens up fresh and vital ground for research and teaching on Third, Second, and First World transnationalism(s), and the many complex connections, tensions, and histories involved.’ —John Chalcraft, Professor of Middle East History and Politics, Department of Government, London School of Economics and Political Science ‘This book globalizes the study of the 1960s better than any other publication. The authors stretch the standard narrative to include regions and actors long neglected. This new geography of the 1960s changes how we understand the broader transformations surrounding protest, war, race, feminism, and other themes. The global 1960s described by the authors is more inclusive and relevant for our current day. This book will influence all future research and teaching about the postwar world.’ —Jeremi Suri, Mack Brown Distinguished Chair for Leadership in Global Affairs; Professor of Public Affairs and History, The University of Texas at Austin As the fiftieth anniversary of 1968 approaches, this book reassesses the global causes, themes, forms, and legacies of that tumultuous period. While existing scholarship continues to largely concentrate on the US and Western Europe, this volume will focus on Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. International scholars from diverse disciplinary backgrounds explore the global sixties through the prism of topics that range from the economy, decolonization, and higher education, to forms of protest, transnational relations, and the politics of memory.

The upheavals of the Arab Spring grabbed the world’s immediate attention, and concern quickly grew over their potential aftermath, with the fear that a ‘tidal wave’ of immigrants and refugees would ‘flood’ European territory. The Arab Spring has highlighted the Mediterranean as a migration region, and new research is now required to bring to light too often neglected mobility patterns and border practices that predate and outlast the tumultuous spring of 2011. The edited volume Space, Mobility and Borders in the Western Mediterranean tackles these contemporary issues related to migration in the Mediterranean region. It brings together high-quality, original academic contributions from both empirical and theoretical points of view by scholars from diverse disciplines, who draw upon Anglophone, Francophone, Spanish and Italian research. It reexamines borders in the light of a now full-blown body of literature that seeks to capture the complexity of their contemporary features beyond their most direct visual enactments, in particular the sweeping deployment of policing devices and operations along the North/South fault line. Another distinctive binding thread in this book is that it emphasizes migrants as active subjects interacting with local events, national policies and the bordering process. Offering an examination of the intricate interplay among the events of the Arab Spring, migration’s multiple types and actors, and the evolving relationship between migration control and borders in the region, this book is an essential resource for students and scholars of migration studies, European Union Studies and Mediterranean Studies.

Nato Geheimarmeen In Europa

Dieses Buch zeichnet ein erschreckendes Bild: Ein durch die NATO und die militärischen Geheimdienste koordiniertes Netzwerk von Geheimarmeen war bis zum Auseinanderfall der Sowjetunion in mehreren westeuropäischen Ländern in schwere Verbrechen verwickelt, darunter Mord, Folter, Staatsstreich und Terror. Daniele Ganser ist in seiner mehrjährigen Forschungsarbeit auf brisante Dokumente gestoßen: Sie belegen, dass die von den USA angeführte Militärallianz nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg in allen Ländern Westeuropas geheime Armeen aufgebaut hat, welche von den Geheimdiensten CIA und MI6 trainiert wurden. Ihr Ziel: im Falle einer sowjetischen Invasion als Guerilla zu kämpfen, um die besetzten Länder wieder zu befreien. Doch dabei ist es nicht geblieben. Gezielt wurden Attentate gegen die eigene Bevölkerung ausgeführt, um Unsicherheit zu erzeugen und den Ruf nach einem starken Staat zu unterstützen. Sowohl die ursprüngliche Planung als auch die antikommunistisch motivierten Verbrechen sind heute der Öffentlichkeit noch weitgehend unbekannt.

Diese "Kurze Geschichte des modernen Zyperns" wendet sich an den an der Geschichte Zyperns interessierten Leser, der mehr wissen will als das, was im Reisefuhrer oder gar in der Zeitung steht, aber nicht die Zeit hat, sich in die Geschichte dieser Insel zu vertiefen. Sie ist die Zusammenfassung meiner vierbandigen "Geschichte der Insel Zypern," die zusammen 2.667 Seiten zahlt und in rd. sieben Jahren niedergeschrieben wurde. Sie umfasst den Zeitraum zwischen 1878, als Zypern britisch wurde, und 1977, als Makarios das sog. High Level Agreement unterzeichnete und wenig spater starb. Zum besseren Verstandnis der Entwicklung bis zur Gegenwart enthalt diese "Kurze Geschichte" jedoch einen knappen Uberblick uber die Entwicklung nach 1977 bis 2009.Bei der Darstellung wurden die Fakten auf das notwendige Minimum reduziert, die Interpretationen aber weitgehend beibehalten. Naturlich mussten dabei viele Einzelheiten stark verkurzt dargestellt oder ganz weggelassen werden. Es sollte aber kein trockenes handbuchartiges Werk entstehen. Das Ziel war ein flott lesbarer, spannender Text, der dennoch alle wissenschaftliche Standards erfullt, jedoch mit einer Ausnahme: Es wurde auf einen umfangreichen Beleg- und Nachweisapparat in Form von Fussnoten und Bibliographien verzichtet. Ein solcher hatte nur die Lesbarkeit beeintrachtigt, den Text aufgeblaht und das Buch unhandlich und teuer gemacht. Wer die im Text zitierten Passagen oder Aussagen uberprufen oder Einzelheiten genauer wissen mochte, moge den jeweiligen Band der Langausgabe zur Hand nehmen. Die vier Bande entsprechen den vier Hauptkapiteln der Kurzausgabe. Da die Kapitelgliederung der Kurzausgabe jener der Langausgabe entspricht, durfte es leicht fallen, die gesuchte Stelle dort zu finden.
