Surviving capitalism : how we learned to live with the market and remained almost human by Erik Ringmar( )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 1,509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the question of the extent to which the market has the power to recreate the rest of society in its own image. Neo-classical economists and radical critics alike tend to believe that markets have this power, but looking at the question in a historical perspective, it is clear that this is not the case. Individuals and social groups have been very clever in protecting themselves against encroachments by market forces. The author speculates alternative kinds of protective responses that might appear in the future and what society would be like without any kinds of protection at all. – from publisher description
The mechanics of modernity in Europe and East Asia : the institutional origins of social change and stagnation by Erik Ringmar( )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why, from the eighteenth century onwards, did some countries embark on a path of sustained economic growth, while others stagnated? This text looks at the kind of institutions that are required in order for change to take place, and Ringmar concludes that for sustained development to be possible, change must be institutionalized. Taking a global view, Ringmar investigates the implications of his conclusion on issues facing the developing world today

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why Europe was first : social change and economic growth in Europe and East Asia 1500-2050 by Erik Ringmar( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For most of its history Europe was a thoroughly average part of the world: poor, uncouth, technologically and culturally backward. By contrast, China was always far richer, more sophisticated and advanced. Yet it was Europe that first became modern, and by the nineteenth century China was struggling to catch up. This book explains why. Why did Europe succeed and why was China left behind? The answer, as we will see, does not only solve a long-standing historical puzzle, it also provides an explanation of the contemporary success of East Asia, and it shows what is wrong with current theories of development and modernization."--Jacket
A blogger's manifesto : free speech and censorship in the age of the Internet by Erik Ringmar( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There was never such a thing as true freedom of speech. In order to speak freely you had to have access to a printing press, a newspaper, a radio or a TV station. And everywhere you had to get past the editors. Only an elite ever did - the articulate and well-behaved representatives of ordinary people. But those ordinary people hardly, if ever, had a chance to speak publicly and freely." "Until now. The age of blogging has begun. The internet revolution has given us all a chance to be irreverent, blasphemous and ungrammatical in public. We can reveal secrets, blow whistles, spill beans, or just make stuff up. The old elites don't like it. In fact, they really really hate it. Blogs are commonly shut down, and bloggers are silenced, reprimanded and fired from their jobs. Suddenly modern liberal society reveals a repressive face that few of us knew existed." "Should we behave ourselves? Should we fall silent? Absolutely not! Let's call them on their hypocrisy. Let's demand that modern liberal society lives by the principles it claims to embrace. Bloggers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your gags."--BOOK JACKET

The international politics of recognition by Thomas Lindemann( Book )

18 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The origins of international conflict are often explained by security dilemmas, power rivalries, or profits for political or economic elites. Common to these approaches is the idea that human behavior is mostly governed by material interests that principally involve the quest for power or wealth. The authors question this truncated view of human rationality. Borrowing the concept of recognition from models developed in philosophy and sociology, this book provides a unique set of applications to the problems of international conflict and argues that human actions are often motivated not so much by a pursuit of utility maximization as by a quest to gain recognition. This unique approach will be a welcome alternative to the traditional models of international conflict --

Theorizing Global Order The International, Culture and Governance( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Theoretisierung internationaler Beziehungen setzte immer schon ein Verständnis des Gegenstandsbereichs voraus, über den reflektiert wird - etwa das "Internationale" und "Globale" oder Kategorien wie "Beziehungen" und "System". Obwohl "Ordnung" eine zentrale Kategorie sowohl des politischen Diskurses als auch der Disziplin der Internationalen Beziehungen ist, wird das Konzept erstaunlich wenig theoretisiert. Dieser Band bietet divergierende zeitgenössische Perspektiven darauf, wie globale Ordnung theoretisch gefasst werden kann

How the world stage makes its subjects : an embodied critique of constructivist IR theory by Erik Ringmar( )

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

This article provides a critique of constructivism and post-structuralism within IR theory from an embodied, realist perspective. Meaning is not made as much as experienced, we will argue, and subjectivity is not constructed as much as enacted. The theater illustrates the difference between constructivist, post-structuralist and embodied perspectives. By analyzing international politics in terms of a performance instead of performativity a more credible version of the sovereign subject can be identi fi ed. The world is a stage and it is only by appearing on this world stage that the state becomes real. To back up this argument the article draws from recent research in cognitive theory and neuroscience
