instigator of instability and disorder by colluding with, failing to prevent or even generating global market forces – think of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the Multilateral Agreement on Investment and the General Agreement on Trade in Services.

consequence of the labour market dynamism of the Celtic Tiger; a narrative of ethnic and national identity inherited from the process of state formation before and after independence; within the field of international relations, a commitment to constitutional liberalism and the rule of law – this expresses itself in support for the United Nations and the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees.

The impact of organised political resistance on imperialism has been a persistent interest of mine. So has the elision of the political within colonial discourse and critical empire studies. I explore this elision in a number of chapters here, and argue for a critical methodology premised on the distinctiveness of the political as a category of identity, activity and analysis. It

countries to the market economy and the information and communication technologies revolution. The overwhelmingly optimistic or grandiose tone of Urry’s ( 2000 ) bold manifesto to move ‘sociology beyond societies’ has been subsequently replaced, however, by a more cautious understanding of how ‘mobility, immobility and moorings’ are dialectally connected (Hannam et al. 2006 ). It would be easy to be

Environmental managerialism and golf’s conspicuous exemption
Brad Millington and Brian Wilson

words, the light-greening of golf has been forged in a policy context open to light-green solutions. Having also considered the intersections of golf, voluntarism, and regulation in the United States, we conclude this chapter with reflections on government-industry relations and the aforementioned concept of ‘post-politics’. We also situate our analysis of the arrival of responsible golf from Chapters 5 , 6 , and 7 along the PAAR continuum, thus placing it within the wider narrative of The

identity, a phenomenon with multiple dimensions: certainly geographical, but also historical, cultural, symbolic, and maybe even poetical. In this chapter, we will mention, in addition to those who call themselves native, not only the peoples who came mainly from Morocco to work as farm workers in some of the Bordeaux vineyards in the 1960s and 1970s, but also those from Tunisia or Algeria. These workers settled there, and their families remain to this day. It is interesting to note that in the field of interethnic relations and international migration, the countryside

Constitution failed to be ratified in forty-two of the eighty-nine subjects. Moreover, the legitimacy of the Constitution was also weakened by doubts over the validity of the officially declared turnout of 54.8 per cent. According to some estimates the actual turnout was well below the required 50 per cent and actually lay somewhere between 38 and 43 per cent.9 Such doubts over the legitimacy of the Constitution has fundamentally weakened the powers and authority of the federal government in its relations with the federal subjects, particularly in those regions where the

Approaching golf and environmental issues

.e. chemical-free golf) as an alternative to synthetic chemical-dependent golf course management? These are the sorts of questions we explore in this book. In pursuing answers, we trace the evolution of the golf industry’s response to environmental concerns and describe how the practices of golf superintendents have changed over time. We also outline how changes in the golf industry have been justified. This means examining the maturing public relations strategies of golf industry members and

Demand-side abundance and its discontents in Hungary during the long 1960s

idea of socialism had never been to enable the development of only the productive forces, but of the ‘the many-sided rehumanization of social relations’. Although he understood how important it was to achieve dynamic growth through ‘marketizing’ reforms, he wanted to raise a finger of warning lest ‘optimization’ (economic growth) should compromise and squeeze out the objectives of ‘humanization’ from the socialist agenda (Hegedüs, 1965). His hope was that [t]he times are not far away when the advantages of socialism over capitalism are measured not in terms of the

States and its allies. The quest for modernity would, however, place enormous demands upon societies regarded as existing at a rather more primitive stage of development. Modernisation would inevitably entail the installation of those institutions and processes deemed conducive to capitalist accumulation. In particular, existing forms of social interaction and regulation would have to be replaced with those of the free market. The drive to modernity would require not only systematic structural reform but radical cultural change as well. Modernisation theorists
