Cambridge Studies in Contentious Politics - Protectors of Pluralism: Religious Minorities and the Rescue of Jews in the Low... Cambridge Studies in Contentious Politics - Protectors of Pluralism: Religious Minorities and the Rescue of Jews in the Low Countries during the Holocaust (Paperback)
Robert Braun
R515 Discovery Miles 5 150 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Protectors of Pluralism argues that local religious minorities are more likely to save persecuted groups from purification campaigns. Robert Braun utilizes a geo-referenced dataset of Jewish evasion in the Netherlands and Belgium during the Holocaust to assess the minority hypothesis. Spatial statistics and archival work reveal that Protestants were more likely to rescue Jews in Catholic regions of the Low Countries, while Catholics facilitated evasion in Protestant areas. Post-war testimonies and secondary literature demonstrate the importance of minority groups for rescue in other countries during the Holocaust as well as other episodes of mass violence, underlining how the local position of church communities produces networks of assistance, rather than something inherent to any religion itself. This book makes an important contribution to the literature on political violence, social movements, altruism and religion, applying a range of social science methodologies and theories that shed new light on the Holocaust.

Most practitioners and decision makers look at corporate social responsibility (CSR) as a socially responsible management practice on top of what company leaders normally do: focus on the sustainable, long term financial profitability of their corporation. This book focuses on a political understanding of CSR: the author bridges politics corporate social responsibility and in a creative and provocative manner. Braun seeks to explore why and how corporations are to be seen as political entities with important roles in our current societies. The first part discusses the social context, the various stakeholder approaches and it also endeavors - with the help of the historic/political parallel of the bourgeois revolutions in the 19th century - to define the corporate polity. The second part analyses the new kind of operational logic from the viewpoint of the different areas of corporate operation; it gives an overview of the consequences for the individual areas of operation and indicates how corporate policy can be realized in the given field of operation. The third part of the book introduces the institutions necessary for the creation of the corporate polity.

Das Buch ist fur Sozial- und Wirtschaftswissenschaftler gedacht, fur die die Erlernung einer Programmiersprache zur (universitaren) Grundausbildung gehort. Es vermittelt ein grundlegendes Verstandnis fur die Informationstechnologie, indem deren Funktionsweise aufgezeigt wird. Die Grundlagen von Programmiersprachen im Allgemeinen und von JAVA(tm) im Besonderen werden zunachst in Grundzugen vorgestellt und anhand der Gestaltung von grafischen Benutzungsoberflachen praktisch erprobt. Mit Hilfe der Unified Modeling Language (UML) wird die Nutzung von einfachen Algorithmen und Mustern bei der Gestaltung von Softwareentwurfen demonstriert, die im Anschluss mittels JAVA(tm) implementiert werden. Die Programmierung mit JAVA(tm) wird damit als die letzte Phase eines modellbasierten Vorgehens bei der Entwicklung von Anwendungssystemen aufgefasst. Es wird ein durchgangiges Programmierbeispiel verwendet, das im Internet unter http: //wiseweb.wiwi.tu-dresden.de/javabuch abrufbar ist. Dort finden sich auch Losungen zu den Ubungsaufgaben und weitere Hinweise und Tipps.
