Toleration on Trial
Toleration on Trial offers the only multidisciplinary study available on the issue of toleration, bringing together political psychologists, philosophers, sociologists, Islamic scholars, and political theorists to examine the most pressing debates in the field. The volume addresses the toleration question from a number of angles: toleration and its application to gay rights; Islam and toleration; institutional, ideological, and psychological preconditions for its practice; and philosophical and conceptual arguments for the principle of toleration.

The common thread running throughout the volume is the core question: Is toleration primarily a product of institutional arrangements, or is it an attitude of individuals? To answer this adequately, the authors believe that a contemporary analysis of the possibility, significance and requirements of toleration must be fully cognizant of the democratic, or more accurately―politically mobilized―background in which toleration becomes a difficult issue. Conflicts between deeply divided groups within nations and between groups across political boundaries pose the issue of threat and risk to a practice or way of life that many peoples find difficult to accept.

Can the idea and practice of toleration manage these in politically and ethically defensible ways? These essays address various aspects of the aim to establish or strengthen toleration among politically mobilized groups, in a context of contemporary democratic challenges.

Spieltheorie und Kommunikationsnetzwerke in der Wirtschaft: Eine Studie zu spieltheoretischer Entwicklung und Evaluierung von Koordinationsdesigns für ... Infrastrukturentscheidungen (German Edition)
Kern von Rainer B. Fladungs Untersuchung ist die spieltheoretische Modellierung von Standardisierungsentscheidungen in Unternehmen, wobei in diesem Zusammenhang insbesondere die dynamischen Aspekte im Vordergrund stehen. Zu diesem Zweck untersucht Rainer B. Fladung zunächst spieltheoretische Grundkonzepte, sofern diese in der weiteren Betrachtung Relevanz aufweisen. Darauf aufbauend werden verschiedene Entscheidungsszenarios modelliert und Ergebnisse abgeleitet und evaluiert. In dem Verfahren abnehmender Abstraktion werden dynamische Mehrpersonenspiele entwickelt. In einem weiteren Teil werden Ausgleichsmechanismen für asymmetrische Nutzenverteilungen, wie sie insbesondere bei den gezeigten Entscheidungssituationen entstehen, erörtert. Den Schluß bildete ein empirisches Beispiel für die Standardisierungsproblematik und die Anwendung der formulierten Modelle auf den konkreten Sachverhalt.

Navigating the Spanish Lake: The Pacific in the Iberian World, 1521-1898 (Perspectives on the Global Past)

Navigating the Spanish Lake examines Spain’s long presence in the Pacific Ocean (1521–1898) in the context of its global empire. Building on a growing body of literature on the Atlantic world and indigenous peoples in the Pacific, this pioneering book investigates the historiographical “Spanish Lake” as an artifact that unites the Pacific Rim (the Americas and Asia) and Basin (Oceania) with the Iberian Atlantic. Incorporating an impressive array of unpublished archival materials on Spain’s two most important island possessions (Guam and the Philippines) and foreign policy in the South Sea, the book brings the Pacific into the prevailing Atlanticentric scholarship, challenging many standard interpretations. By examining Castile’s cultural heritage in the Pacific through the lens of archipelagic Hispanization, the authors bring a new comparative methodology to an important field of research.

The book opens with a macrohistorical perspective of the conceptual and literal Spanish Lake. The chapters that follow explore both the Iberian vision of the Pacific and indigenous counternarratives; chart the history of a Chinese mestizo regiment that emerged after Britain’s occupation of Manila in 1762-1764; and examine how Chamorros responded to waves of newcomers making their way to Guam from Europe, the Americas, and Asia. An epilogue analyzes the decline of Spanish influence against a backdrop of European and American imperial ambitions and reflects on the legacies of archipelagic Hispanization into the twenty-first century.

Specialists and students of Pacific studies, world history, the Spanish colonial era, maritime history, early modern Europe, and Asian studies will welcome Navigating the Spanish Lake as a persuasive reorientation of the Pacific in both Iberian and world history.
