nature of the Great Society by showing how such a time period has today become known as the ‘First Great Globalization’. The second section focuses not only on how Dewey acknowledged the global dimensions of the Great Society but also on why he was compelled to propound the need for global democracy. The final part of the chapter outlines Dewey’s concrete ideas about what global democracy would look like in reality. 42 John Dewey The Great Society as the First Great Globalization Pragmatist scholars often fail to recognize that Dewey saw the Great Society as more

’, while necessary to a practical exploration of the subtlety and interrelation of Thomas’s work as a whole, are, ultimately, heuristic constructs. Like the individual poems, the ‘categories’ explored here are never strictly divisive or exclusive but, rather, fluid, very often reflecting, expanding, and qualifying one another. Thomas’s search for identity cannot be divorced from his theological probings. His reflections on nature and science are equally the important settings and occasions for these ‘other’ questions of identity and deity. Thus, Thomas’s work, viewed as

in the European Union Flowing from Foster’s analysis is an additional question relevant to regulation at the EU level. Beyond the questions of why regulate, who is to be regulated and what kind of regulation is preferred is a potentially more problematic question. Why has the regulation of sport changed in the EU? The review of EU activity in sport conducted in Chapter 1 indicates the extent to which the nature of the EU’s regulatory approach has changed. A review of pre-1999 case law in the EU locates the EU’s regulatory involvement in sport towards the ‘market

As women comprise a majority of urban citizens in the world today, questions remain about the nature of a feminised urban future. While it is established that urbanisation has the potential to promote gender transformations (Chant and McIlwaine, 2016 ), it is important to consider how positive changes are potentially undermined by violence against women and girls (VAWG) and, concomitantly, how violence affects women’s health and wellbeing in cities. In a context whereby one in three women globally experiences such violence, with arguably higher incidence in

In short, compared to the experience of previous parties after their eviction from office, the post-1997 Conservatives were remarkably united in their approach to economic questions. Those searching for divisions within the party on fundamental principles, concerning human nature and the proper role of government, have to look elsewhere. It might be argued that commentators on ideology have placed excessive emphasis on economic ideas in the past, and that issues such as law and order and personal morality have always given a more reliable

Turning to the wide-ranging form of political thought known as anarchism, we discuss anarchist views of human nature, the state, liberty and equality, and economic life.

To this extent, the question of coordination of such levels and different approaches in public policy and state agencies politically and organisationally is one we need to be alert to (Crouch, 1993). What is more, the state intervenes not just in social spaces but also in ideological ones where specific issues, sensibilities and even national debates develop and configure the nature and impact of state policies (Locke and Thelen, 2006). Within these social and ideological

The trade of a commodity or an economic exchange may not be the sole cause of conflict, but does become a fundamental part of the conflict dynamic, impacting the nature and/or trajectory of political violence. In this sense, war economies do not simply refer to the state of an

nature of American–Turkish relations as a whole. Despite its disapproval of Turkey’s human rights policies, Washington, for whom Turkey in the 1990s was as important an ally as it had been in the days of the cold war, did not let its, often justified, reproofs stand in the way of close cooperation with Ankara. In like manner, Turkey, though often exasperated with United States’, to its mind, selfish and myopic policies, nevertheless continued to collaborate closely with Washington. Situated in a dangerous region and surrounded by potential foes, Ankara knew that it
