, relocating cyber-criticalism in an interpretative context that stresses the power of excluded agents to resist and challenge the growing hegemony of informatic capitalism. He cites numerous struggles by class and social movements around the world as evidence that, although the frontiers of information are expanding, the interior spaces of those expanding horizons are vulnerable to opposition and reconfiguration in the direction of radical alternatives. Therefore, cyber-criticalism agrees with Castells that information networks are significant, but is less ambiguous than

in After the new social democracy

between various groups across society. In fact, due to the inequality and stratification of bourgeois democracy, Dewey saw that groups and their publics referred back to an approach of being antagonistic and hostile towards one another, rather than democratically addressing the cause of their dissatisfactions. The emergence ‘in political life of populist movements, square deals, new deals, accompanies depressions on the part of those most directly affected – farmers, factory labourers –’ was indicative of how such groups were kept from ‘uniting politically by divergence

The international system and the Middle East

-Arabism, combining a more radical and illiberal nationalism with demands for Arab unity and populist social reform, achieved ideological hegemony among both the new middle class and mobilising sections of the masses (Hourani 1970; Khadduri, 1970; Sharabi 1970). The fragility of upper-class-based regimes and the Arab nationalist mobilisation of the middle class against them ushered in two decades of political instability (1945–67) expressed by military coups and the rise of radical parties. The military overthrew monarchies and oligarchies across the region

Explaining foreign policy variation

Israeli threat and recruited from the middle-class and peasant youth, was a hotbed of populist dissent, radicalised by the conflict with Israel and Nasser’s anti-imperialism. The West’s backing of Israel inflamed the people against it and de-legitimised pro-Western politicians and the Western economic ties of the commercial oligarchy. This fuelled the rise of radical parties – notably the Ba’th Party – and the military coups and counter-coups that destabilised the state and gradually pushed the oligarchic elite from power (Seale 1965; Torrey 1964

The parliamentary arena

the Tsomet, Tehiya [two other rightist factions whose bids for disqualification were discussed at the same hearings] and now Moledet lists justify the radical enforcement of disqualification, as I have already mentioned. For, in my opinion, and despite the evidence … the Kach verdict does not apply to these movements as well as in this particular case of the Moledet movement. I reiterate; employing the process of disqualification has to be carried out with the utmost precaution and with minimal legal interpretation. 71 The position of the clear

So, no change there then?

11 David Broughton The 2001 general election The 2001 general election: so, no change there then? David Broughton A week is a long time in politics, as former Prime Minister Harold Wilson once noted. A year can seem like an eternity, especially when a party makes negligible progress in advance of a second successive general election drubbing. To follow such a humiliation with an occasionally bitter and long drawn out leadership contest – in which one candidate calls the other an ‘extremist’,1 and the other retorts by dubbing his opponent ‘a right wing hanger

Anti-Islam and anti-Muslim sentiments

monolithic and undifferentiated In official documents, such as the movement’s mission statement,4 the EDL refers to its object of concern not as Islam per se but ‘radical Islam’ or ‘Islamic orthodoxy’. At EDL demonstrations speakers also distinguished between ordinary Muslims and ‘extremists’: I am not talking about the guy you carpool with. I am not talking about the guy you see at the school gate picking up their children. … I’m talking about the extremists, the loons … the clerics and Imams who want to preach a seventh-century ideology in a twenty-first-century world

Changing meanings of the countryside in northern Italy

corruption scandals, and the party suffered humiliating defeats in local and European elections held between 2012 and 2014. 6 Despite the radical-right overtones of its political propaganda, the Northern League also succeeded in capturing the vote of former supporters of left-wing parties (for details see Cento Bull 2000: 18). 7 The territory of the municipality, whose shape is roughly that of an elongated oval, extends approximately 13 km from north to south and roughly 6 km from east to west. It has a total land area of 125.54 km2, and numbers seven villages: Canal San
