Occidentalisms in the Arab World
34,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

While the Western perception of "the Orient" has become a well-worn topic in the field of Asian and Middle Eastern studies, the way in which the Arab world has come to perceive the West has been largely neglected. Occidentalisms in the Arab World not only presents a comprehensive overview and pointed commentary on recent works in the emerging field of Occidentalist studies, but also provides new insight on the interplay between ideology and image in the formulation of "the West." Robbert Woltering provides an in-depth look at the ways in which multiple representations and occidentalisms of the West have developed in Egypt since the end of the Cold War. Through the rigorous analysis of political speeches, popular literature, and recurrent images, Woltering examines the ideological foundations that continue to shape the image of the Occident in the twenty-first century. Occidentalisms in the Arab World provides an unparalleled and original commentary on an emerging field at the intersection of Middle East Studies, Political Science, and Media Studies.

The Making of a Gentleman Nazi
92,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

At the Nuremberg Trial and through his bestselling books, Albert Speer, Hitler's architect and minister, could successfully project an image of himself as the "gentleman Nazi". Using hitherto unexplored archival sources, this book looks at those aspects of his career that Speer retrospectively manipulated (e.g. his resistance to Hitler's Nero order), to construct this image. The evolution of the "Speer myth", analysed here, shows how West Germany's politics influenced Speer's narrative, as well as the impact that his image had on Federal Republic's efforts to cope with its past. This book also examines the role of historians and public intellectuals in and outside Germany in reinforcing the Speer myth - the British historian Hugh Trevor Roper and the Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal among others.

The positive branding of Islam
50,40 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The events of 09/11 resulted in a tremendous blow to the image of Islam and Islamic countries. Right-wing politicians (ab)use this negative image to strengthen support for their anti-immigrant policies and hate against Islam. This book examines attempts made by Islamic countries to improve the image of Islam using Public Diplomacy (PD). An analysis and comparison is done of and between the foreign policy and (PD) diplomatic efforts of Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Senegal and Malaysia, focused on the impact on the existing image in the West. Even though quality PD improves the image of Islam, success and impact of current efforts is hampered by domestic and international circumstances.The study highlights an important, alternative (pioneering) role for PD in improving the image of Islam, assisting in bringing about deeper understanding and tolerance on a global level. PD has so far, only been associated with country, places and products. Islam is none of these, it is the world s second largest religion. This book should be useful to students and professionals in the field of diplomacy or international relations, or anyone else interested in improved relations between the West and Islam.
