The chapters in this volume discuss the meaning of revolution, the origins of neoliberalism in India, identity formation within a social movement in Chicago, the Palestinian National Question, and the black middle class in the United States. Additionally, in the "Scholarly Controversy" part, Fred Block questions whether the concept of capitalism should be problematized entirely."--Cover
Moral purity and persecution in history by Barrington Moore( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moore takes up tools of historical comparison to investigate why groups of people kill and torture each other. His answer is arrestingly simple: people persecute those whom they perceive as polluting due to their "impure" religious, political, or economic ideas." "Moore's provocative conclusion is that monotheism - with its monopoly on virtue and failure to provide supernatural scapegoats - is responsible for some of the most virulent forms of intolerance and is a major cause of human nastiness and suffering. Moore does not say that the monotheist tradition was the primary source of Nazism, Stalinism, Maoism, violent Hindu fundamentalism or ethnic cleansing in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia, but he does identify it as an indispensable cause because it justified, encouraged, and spread vindictive persecution throughout the world."--Jacket

Barrington Moore, Jr., one of the most distinguished thinkers in critical theory and historical sociology, has long been concerned with the prospects for freedom and decency in industrial society. The product of decades of reflection on issues of authority, inequality, and injustice, this volume analyzes fluctuating moral beliefs and behavior in political and economic affairs at different points in history, from the early Middle Ages in England to the prospects for liberalism under twentieth-century Soviet socialism. The social sources of antisocial behavior; principles of social inequality; and the origins, enemies, and possibilities of rational discussion in public affairs - these are among the topics Moore considers as he seeks to uncover the historical causes of some accepted forms of morality and to assess their social consequences
