“It is quite common to hear high officials in Washington and elsewhere speak of changing the map of the Middle East, as if ancient societies and myriad peoples can be shaken up like so many peanuts in a jar.”

The Colonizer's Model of the World: Geographical Diffusionism and Eurocentric History by J. M. Blaut

GUILFORD PRESS - JULY 2012
This influential book challenges one of the most pervasive and powerful beliefs of our time—that Europe rose to modernity and world dominance due to unique qualities of race, environment, culture, mind, or spirit, and that progress for the rest of the world resulted from the diffusion of European civilization. J. M. Blaut persuasively argues that this doctrine is not grounded in the facts of history and geography, but in the ideology of colonialism. Blaut traces the colonizer's model of the world from its 16th-century origins to its present form in theories of economic development, modernization, and new world order.

Book Review: Global Inequality: A New Approach for the Age of Globalization by Branko Milanovic

THE LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AND POLITICAL SCIENCE - May 25th, 2016 

In Global Inequality: A New Approach for the Age of Globalization, Branko Milanovic offers a new account of the dynamics that are driving inequality on a global scale. Although left slightly frustrated by its abrupt end, Duncan Green praises this brilliant and thought-provoking book for its political curiosity and insight and, more particularly, for its reflections on the possible trajectory of inequality in the twenty-first century. 
Global Inequality: A New Approach for the Age of Globalization. Branko Milanovic. Harvard University Press. 2016.

Some of my favourite development economists are nomads, people with feet in different regions, which seems to make them better able to identify interesting patterns and similarities/differences between countries. This includes Ha-Joon Chang (Korea/UK), Dani Rodrik (Turkey/US) and now Branko Milanovic (Serbia/US), whose latest book, Global Inequality: A New Approach for the Age of Globalization, is a brilliant and thought-provoking essay stuffed with enough graphs to satisfy the numerati, anecdotes for the general reader and political insights for the policy wonks. Read it.
Milanovic is best known for his number crunching, in particular his great graph of where the money from global growth went between 1988-2008. There’s no better way of showing the simultaneous rise of the emerging world (mainly Asian) middle class and the global plutocracy, accompanied by the hollowing out of the Western middle class and the neglect of the poorest.

Objectives and Description: The conference aims to investigate and examine the emergence, development and transformation of American Foreign Policy towards the Middle East from the 1940s to the present time. United States imperial interests in the region date back to 19th century missionary movements; however, the US began to play a major role in the region right after WWII, with the Cold War Era. In the meantime, the establishment of NATO, declaration of Israeli Independence in 1948 and the creation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict created chaotic political dilemmas for the US as well as for regional alliances. In addition, the reliance of the American economy on oil, and its support for Israel transformed US foreign policy into a ‘dependent’ Foreign policy. This is shown in the way that interest groups have played a major role in their ability to shape US Foreign Policy in the region. In this conference, we examine the emergence, development and transformation of American Foreign Policy Toward the Middle East since the 1940s and in doing so, we will examine Iranian, Turkish, Israeli and Arab perspectives.

Hallucinogen Honey Hunters - Hunting mad honey - documentary


Q. and A.: Roderick MacFarquhar on the Cultural Revolution and China Today

By HELEN GAO

The New York Times - MAY 3, 2016

The chaos and brutality of the Cultural Revolution, unleashed by Mao Zedong 50 years ago, have received little public examination in China. After the fall of the Gang of Four, the Communist Party and much of the Chinese public chose to move on, as market-oriented policy changes took root. In recent years, however, interest in revisiting this time has grown. Some Chinese have perceived echoes of the Cultural Revolution in the “red culture” campaign in Chongqing under the since-disgraced Bo Xilai or in President Xi Jinping’s anticorruption campaign and have argued that history must be confronted more openly to avoid repeating its mistakes.
Roderick MacFarquhar, a scholar of elite Chinese politics at Harvard University, is a leading expert on the Cultural Revolution. He is the author of the trilogy “The Origins of the Cultural Revolution” and, with Michael Schoenhals, of “Mao’s Last Revolution.” In an interview, he discussed the relevance of that era for contemporary China.
Q. How are Chinese leaders dealing with the 50th anniversary of the Cultural Revolution?
A. I don’t think the party will be bothered much about the 50th anniversary. If I were Xi Jinping, I would probably say to my colleagues: Just make sure no one celebrates this or marks this.

Sociology of Islam and Muslim Societies Academic Mailing List Virginia Tech

Our Objectives
We have created a mailing list for scholars who may be interested in exchanging
academic information related with Islam and Muslim Societies. You will find the information necessary to be a subscriber to this list. This is a scholarly network on Islam and Muslim Societies, which facilitates the academic exchange of information on conferences, panels, articles, books, and events. This network does not promote the orientalist approach toward Islam and Muslim Societies. We believe that Islam is a part and parcel of World civilization and has contributed toward the humanistic value of mankind. However, the last two hundreds years of human history shows us that Muslim Societies have been subject to a colonialist process. This process has transformed Islam from its original meaning and message to that of a reactionary identity. Therefore, today in Muslim Societies we witness poverty, economic inequality, chaotic urbanization, corruption, anti-democratic regimes, gender inequality, and occupations. The Worldwide Islam Scholars Network promotes C. Wright Mills’ Sociological Imagination perspectives in relation to Islam and Muslim Societies. Within this network of Sociologists, Political Scientists, Religious Studies Scholars, Historians, we will exchange scholarly information on Islam and Muslim societies.  

The Sociology of Islam Academic Mailing list at Portland State University is a free professional and academic networking tool to encourage interaction between individuals & organizations involved in Islam/Sociology of Islam/Islamist Movements and related fields worldwide. Members and subscribers are encouraged to dialogue and share resources on books, articles, conferences, teaching, and other related purposes.
