It was the year that Joe DiMaggio set his 56-game hitting streak, that Ted Williams batted .406, that the Dodgers and the Yankees battled each other in a classic World series-and that America went to war. In this look at what he calls "the best baseball season ever," Robert Creamer skillfully intertwines all these epochal baseball happenings with an informal history of a pivotal period in American life, as well as with his own memories of what it was like to be eighteen and a baseball fan when a looming war and the game he loved vied for his attention. For all who love baseball, "Baseball in '41" makes it clear why the game is still the purest representation of the American Dream

What went right? The role of democracy in Ghana's puzzling ethnic peace by Robert W Creamer( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Selon plusieurs prescriptions sur la prévention du renouvellement des conflits ethniques, la paix entre les différents groupes ethniques au Ghana ne devrait pas exister. Cette thèse cherche à identifier ce que nous pouvons apprendre de ce cas anormal de paix inter-ethnique. Pourquoi la paix perdure alors que les griefs demeurent? Qu'est-ce que la réponse à cette question peut révéler sur les façons de résoudre les conflits ethniques? Cette étude trouve que, contrairement aux theories sur la paix inter-ethniques et celles le cas du Ghana, une paix stable ne requière pas nécéssairement la résolution des causes de lauerre ou de créer les structures qui font en sorte que les groups ethniques ne se sentent pas menacés entre eux. Au contraire, si les conditions politiques font en sorte que l'utilisation des identités ethniques comme véhicule pour accéder aux ressources politiques perde son utilité, alors l'importance des griefs qui y sont associés se dissipe également. Au Ghana, l'introduction de compétition démocratique stable en 1992 est responsable pour telle tournure d'événements. En permettant l'accès aux ressources politiques nationales, la démocratie ghanéenne a substitué l'importance des conflits inter-ethniques par les institutions traditionnelles. Les identités socioéconomiques, mobilisées à travers d'un système à deux partis politiques en concurrences, ont remplacé les liens ethniques locaux comme étant la forme d'identité la plus politisée. Conséquemment, non seulement les griefs ethniques ont perdu leur importance politique, leurs porteurs sont maintenant noués par une seule identité socioéconomique partisane. En faisant ces observations, je remets en question une revendication empirique selon laquelle un conflit entre groupes ethniques au Ghana est dormant; ainsi qu'une revendication théorique selon laquelle les conflits ethniques peuvent être gérés mais jamais résolus. Cette thèse fait usage de résultats de sondages, ainsi que la littérature politique, historique et théorique pour démontrer que lorsque le cadre de compétition politique change fondamentalement, nous pouvons nous attendre à voir des changements dans les clivages identitaires au travers desquels les gens participent et dans leur perception des conditions politiques qui satisferont leurs intérêts." --
