The war of gods : religion and politics in Latin America by Michael Löwy ( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Spanish and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The War of Gods traces the intimate relationship between religion, politics and social issues in Latin America over the last three decades, as liberation theology has reinterpreted the vocation of the Catholic Church and as Protestantism has made inroads on traditional Catholic strongholds. In the 1960s liberation theology addressed itself to the problems of a continent racked by poverty and oppression. Comprising a network of localized communities and pastoral organizations, it soon became something much more than a doctrinal current. Liberationist Christianity defined itself in a multitude of social struggles, particularly in Brazil and Central America. Many of the most momentous events in the continent's recent history - the Nicaraguan revolution, the development of the PT (Workers' Party) in Brazil, the tortuous ascent of President Aristide in Haiti and the uprising in Chiapas - have borne witness to the influence of a distinctive liberationist Christianity. Michael Lowy proposes here a new interpretation - inspired by the sociology of culture - both of liberation theology and of the rival religious projects in Latin America

"Michael Lowy argues that it remains one of the most important philosophical and political writings of the twentieth century, in this scrupulous, clear and fascinating examination. Looking in detail at Benjamin's celebrated but often mysterious text, and restoring the philosophical, theological and political context, Lowy highlights the complex relationship between redemption and revolution in Benjamin's philosophy of history."--BOOK JACKET
Redemption and utopia : Jewish libertarian thought in Central Europe : a study in elective affinity by Michael Löwy ( Book )
11 editions published in 1992 in English and Polish and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Towards the end of the nineteenth century, there appeared in Central Europe a generation of Jewish intellectuals whose work was to mark modern culture. Drawing at once on the traditions of German Romanticism and Jewish Messianism, their thought was organized around the kabbalistic idea of Tikkoun: redemption. Redemption and Utopia uses the concept of "elective affinity" to explain the surprising community of spirit that existed between redemptive messianic religious thought and the wide variety of radical secular utopian beliefs held by this important group of intellectuals. The author outlines the circumstances that produced this unusual combination of religious and non-religious thought and illuminates the common assumptions that united such seemingly disparate figures as Martin Buber, Kafka, Walter Benjamin and Georg Lukacs

Marxism in Latin America from 1909 to the present : an anthology by Michael Löwy ( Book )
9 editions published between 1980 and 1999 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first new anthology of writings by Latin American Marxists to appear in over twenty years. Its purpose is to fill this vacuum and to provide a working tool for both students and activists. While including theoretical, sociological, historical, and economic writings, the majority of the documents center on political struggles throughout the continent. The anthology's method is historical, considering the evolution of Marxist thought in the context of social and political struggles during the different historical periods in Latin America, as well as in connection with developments in the international workers' movement. Of particular interest are hard-to-find documents from the early years of the Communist International; a number of important and previously untranslated texts by Jose Carlos Mariategui, widely considered the most important Marxist thinker of the Americas; documents from the 1932 revolt in El Salvador, led by Farabundo Marti; and selections from the most dynamic elements of the Latin American left, including the Central American revolutionary movements, the Brazilian Workers Party, and liberation theologists

The theory of revolution in the young Marx by Michael Löwy ( Book )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book proposes a marxist analysis of young Marx intellectual evolution, from left neo-Hegelianism to his new philosophy of praxis. It distinguishes itself from most other books on the early Marx by its object: the theory of (proletarian) revolutionary self-emancipation, and its method to understand the movement of Marx's political and philosophical ideas in relation to the most radical currents in the labour movement of his time (beginning with Chartism and the uprising of the Silesian weavers in 1844). The central theoretical argument of the author is that Marx's philosophy of praxis - first formulated in the Thesis on Feuerbach - is at the same time the founding stone of a new world view, and the methodological basis for the theory of revolutionary self-emancipation."--BOOK JACKET

Rédemption et utopie : le judaïsme libertaire en Europe centrale : une étude d'affinité élective by Michael Löwy ( Book )
12 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in French and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Vers la fin du XIXe siècle apparaît en Europe centrale une génération d'intellectuels juifs dont l'oeuvre allait marquer la culture moderne. Puisant à des sources allemandes (le romantisme) et juives (le messianisme), leur pensée s'organise autour de l'idée (kabbalistique) du "Tikkoun" : la rédemption. Il existe entre tous une étonnante communauté spirituelle, fondée sur l'"affinité élective" entre la rédemption messianique et l'utopie libertaire. Ce livre est la première tentative de retrouver le réseau occulte qui les relie
