Contesting democracy : political thought in twentieth-century Europe by Jan-Werner Müller( )

56 editions published between 2011 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 2,466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blending intellectual, political, and cultural history, Muller elucidates the ideas that shaped the period of ideological extremes before 1945 and the liberalisation of West European politics after WWII
Memory and power in post-war Europe : studies in the presence of the past( )

22 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 2,280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How has memory - collective and individual - influenced European politics after the Second World War and after 1989 in particular? How has the past been used in domestic struggles for power, and how have 'historical lessons' been applied in foreign policy? While there is now a burgeoning field of social and cultural memory studies, mostly focused on commemorations and monuments, this volume is the first to examine the connection between memory and politics directly. It investigates how memory is officially recast, personally reworked and often violently re-instilled after wars, and, above all, the ways memory shapes present power constellations. The chapters combine theoretical innovation in their approach to the study of memory with deeply historical, empirically based case studies of major European countries. The volume concludes with reflections on the ethics of memory, and the politics of truth, justice and forgetting after 1945 and 1989"--Jacket

Abstract:
What is populism? by Jan-Werner Müller( Book )

44 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work argues that at populism's core is a rejection of pluralism. Populists will always claim that they and they alone represent the people and their true interests. Müller also shows that, contrary to conventional wisdom, populists can govern on the basis of their claim to exclusive moral representation of the people: if populists have enough power, they will end up creating an authoritarian state that excludes all those not considered part of the proper 'people.' The book proposes a number of concrete strategies for how liberal democrats should best deal with populists and, in particular, how to counter their claims to speak exclusively for 'the silent majority' or 'the real people'"--Provided by the publisher
Another country : German intellectuals, unification, and national identity by Jan-Werner Müller( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Muller explains why many intellectuals reacted so defensively to unification and why unification plunged the Left in particular into a major crisis that has yet to be overcome. He analyzes the responses of Gunter Grass, Jurgen Habermas and others of the so-called 'sceptical generation', who broke with the tradition of the illiberal interwar intellectuals and reinvented themselves as a 'democratic elite' who sought to transform political culture after the War - and tried to do so again after 1989. He discusses the German idea of 'constitutional patriotism' as well as the anti-nationalism of the 'generation of 1968', and provides the first full-scale analysis of Germany's 'New Right'. Written clearly and elegantly, this book assesses the acrimonious debates about the future of the nation-state and public memory in Germany and offers more general reflections on the role intellectuals can play in post-totalitarian societies."--Jacket
A dangerous mind : Carl Schmitt in post-war European thought by Jan-Werner Müller( Book )

26 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Offering a concise account of Schmitt's life and career along with discussions of his key concepts, Muller explains why interest in the political theorist continues. He analyzes Schmitt's post-1945 writings on international order, partisanship, and terror. He explores in detail the responses of liberal thinkers to Schmitt's challenging legacy and the highly ingenious (and often problematic) defenses of liberalism they devised. Muller offers a range of insights into the liberalization of political thinking in post-authoritarian societies and the persistent vulnerabilities and blind spots of certain strands of Western liberalism. Finally, he also assesses the current uses of Schmitt's thought in debates on globalization and the quest for a liberal world order."--Jacket
Was ist Populismus? ein Essay by Jan-Werner Müller( Book )

28 editions published between 2015 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wer wird heute nicht alles als Populist bezeichnet: Gegner der Eurorettung, Figuren wie Marine Le Pen, Politiker des Mainstream, die meinen, dem Volk aufs Maul schauen zu müssen. Vielleicht ist ein Populist aber auch einfach nur ein populärer Konkurrent, dessen Programm man nicht mag, wie Ralf Dahrendorf einmal anmerkte? Lässt sich das Phänomen schärfer umreißen und seine Ursachen erklären? Worin besteht der Unterschied zwischen Rechts- und Linkspopulismus? Jan-Werner Müller nimmt aktuelle Entwicklungen zum Ausgangspunkt, um eine Theorie des Populismus zu skizzieren und Populismus letztlich klar von der Demokratie abzugrenzen. Seine Thesen helfen zudem, neue Strategien in der Auseinandersetzung mit Populisten zu entwickeln
German ideologies since 1945 : studies in the political thought and culture of the Bonn Republic by Jan-Werner Müller( Book )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors of this volume seek to answer such questions as: 'How did the Germans overcome 'Germanic Ideology', or did they?' 'Why is there no libertarianism in Germany?' 'What do German conservatives wish to conserve?'. Emphasizing shared patterns of thought, the contributors trace the contours of political thought in a divided nation with a difficult past, and ion the shadow of the culture and political values of the United States

11 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a critical re-examination of Berlin's Cold War liberalism, at a time when many observers worry about the emergence of new global, partly ideologically driven conflicts--back cover
Europas Ende, Europas Anfang neue Perspektiven für die Europäische Union by Herfried Münkler( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in German and Undetermined and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Steht das hoffnungsvoll gehegte, weltweit bewunderte europäische Integrationsprojekt heute vor dem Scheitern? Die Konflikte und Spannungen um die Stabilität der Währungsunion ("Eurokrise") und die enormen Herausforderungen der Flüchtlingskrise haben die Grundfesten der Europäischen Union erschüttert. Der per Referendum beschlossene Austritt Großbritanniens aus der Europäischen Union ("Brexit") gilt vielen Beobachtern als Vorbote eines Rückzugs in die Nationalstaatlichkeit. Angesehene Experten unterschiedlicher Fachdisziplinen widmen sich in diesem Band der Suche nach den entscheidenden Stellschrauben im europäischen Gefüge und der Entwicklung innovativer Ideen, um die Zukunftsfähigkeit der Europäischen Union zu sichern. Denn in der aktuellen krisenhaften Umbruchsituation liegt vielleicht gerade die Chance für einen Neuanfang der europäischen Einigung. Mit Beiträgen von Udo Di Fabio, Dieter Grimm, Karl Lamers, Jan-Werner Müller, Herfried Münkler, Fritz W. Scharpf, Gesine Schwan, Philipp Ther, Antoine Vauchez, Werner Weidenfeld u.a
Furcht und Freiheit für einen anderen Liberalismus by Jan-Werner Müller( Book )

6 editions published in 2019 in German and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Liberalismus ist in Verruf geraten. Oft wird er nur noch als Elitenattitüde wahrgenommen, als exklusive Kultur urbaner Globalisierungsgewinner. Wie konnte es so weit kommen? War der Liberalismus schon immer eine Sache arroganter, im Zweifelsfall heuchlerischer Moralisierer? Jan-Werner Müller zeigt, wie und warum sich solche Vorstellungen nach dem Ende des Kalten Krieges entgegen allen Erwartungen liberaler Triumphalisten durchsetzten. Vor allem aber formuliert er auf den Spuren der in Deutschland immer noch weitgehend unbekannten Denkerin Judith Shklar einen Liberalismus, der sich an der Vorstellung eines Lebens ohne Furcht und Abhängigkeiten orientiert. Damit wird es möglich, sowohl Antidiskriminierunsgpolitik als auch soziale Sicherung neu zu begründen - anstatt sie immer wieder unproduktiv gegeneinander auszuspielen
Carl Schmitt, un esprit dangereux by Jan-Werner Müller( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Son adhésion dépourvue de repentir au nazisme vaut au théoricien politique Carl Schmitt (1888-1985) de partager l'odeur de soufre du philosophe Heidegger. Ce passé sinistre aurait dû le condamner à l'oubli. Or sa mort précéda sa renaissance. Ce représentant de la droite autoritaire extrême privé de toute chaire universitaire est désormais considéré comme l'un des principaux penseurs politiques des deux derniers tiers du XX"Texte traduit de l'anglais par Sylvie Taussig."
Wo Europa endet Ungarn, Brüssel und das Schicksal der liberalen Demokratie by Jan-Werner Müller( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kann es innerhalb der Europäischen Union eine Diktatur geben? Vor ein paar Jahren wäre solch eine Frage noch als interessante Gedankenspielerei von politischen Theoretikern abgetan worden. Angesichts der dramatischen Entwicklungen in Mitgliedsländern wie Rumänien und Ungarn sind wir jedoch ernsthaft mit einem Szenario konfrontiert, das in Brüssel bislang nie öffentlich thematisiert wurde: nämlich dass die Demokratisierungsprozesse in den (relativ) neuen EU-Staaten vielleicht doch umkehrbar sein könnten. „Das Buch zielt aber nicht so sehr darauf, Ungarn zur Umkehr zu bewegen, sondern die Möglichkeiten der EU zu analysieren, auf Entwicklungen wie in Ungarn zu reagieren. Wer wissen will, mit welchem Recht sich die EU in die verfassungspolitischen Angelegenheiten ihrer Mitgliedsstaaten einmischen darf und wie ihr spärlicher Instrumentenkasten dabei bestückt ist, findet in diesem Buch alles, was er braucht, und das in überaus les- und nachvollziehbarer Sprache und Form. Schwerer ist allerdings die Frage zu beantworten, was denn die EU an weiteren Instrumenten in die Hand bekommen sollte, um Mitgliedsstaaten daran zu hindern, ihre Verfassungen zu ruinieren. Eine konkrete Forderung hat Müller zumindest im Gepäck, nämlich eine unabhängige Kommission, die über die mitgliedsstaatlichen Verfassungsstandards wacht und notfalls Alarm schlägt“ (dradio.de)
Wege in die neue Bundesrepublik : politische Mythen und kollektive Selbstbilder nach 1989 by Clemens Albrecht( )

2 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungNach 1989 musste die Bundesrepublik ihr Selbstbild und ihre historische Tradition neu definieren. Dass Adenauer zum bedeutendsten Deutschen gewählt, die Erinnerung an 68 gepflegt oder sich mit dem deutschen Herbst beschäftigt wird, belegt den neuen Umgang mit der eigenen Geschichte. Die Beiträge beleuchten die politisch-kulturellen und ideengeschichtlich relevanten Debatten, auch diejenigen über Patriotismus und Leitkultur.€Biographische InformationenHerfried Münkler ist Professor für Politikwissenschaft an der HU Berlin.

What is populism? by Jan-Werner Müller( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donald Trump, Silvio Berlusconi, Marine Le Pen, Hugo Chávez--populists are on the rise across the globe. But what exactly is populism? Should everyone who criticizes Wall Street or Washington be called a populist? What precisely is the difference between right-wing and left-wing populism? Does populism bring government closer to the people or is it a threat to democracy? Who are "the people" anyway and who can speak in their name? These questions have never been more pressing. In this groundbreaking volume, Jan-Werner Müller argues that at populism's core is a rejection of pluralism. Populists will always claim that they and they alone represent the people and their true interests. Müller also shows that, contrary to conventional wisdom, populists can govern on the basis of their claim to exclusive moral representation of the people: if populists have enough power, they will end up creating an authoritarian state that excludes all those not considered part of the proper "people." The book proposes a number of concrete strategies for how liberal democrats should best deal with populists and, in particular, how to counter their claims to speak exclusively for "the silent majority" or "the real people." Analytical, accessible, and provocative, What Is Populism? is grounded in history and draws on examples from Latin America, Europe, and the United States to define the characteristics of populism and the deeper causes of its electoral successes in our time
