Plagues, Priests, and Demons: Sacred Narratives and the Rise of Christianity in the Old World and the New

Plagues, Priests, and Demons: Sacred Narratives and the Rise of Christianity in the Old World and the New
Cambridge University Press | ISBN 0521600502 | 2005 edition | PDF | 296 pages | 3.1 MB

"One thousand years apart, Christianity's rapid rise in Europe and in Mexico coincided with plague and social dislocation, but this was no coincidence. Crossing disciplines with apparent ease, Daniel Reff offers a fresh, erudite, and compelling explanation of how Jesuit missionaries in Mexico advanced their cause by echoing the rhetoric and strategies of early Christians." David J. Weber, author of The Spanish Frontier in North America and the forthcoming, Spaniards and Their Savages in the Age of Enlightenment "Scholars have spent a generation abjectly recognizing that they cannot fully understand 'the other'. Now it is time to re-recognize that we are all members of the same species. In Plagues, Priests, and Demons we see that Europe in the first centuries AD and Mexico in the first post-Columbian centuries suffered similar pandemics and population crashes, and reacted similarly by accepting a new religion." Alfred W. Crosby, Professor Emeritus in American Studies, History and Geography, University of Texas at Austin

Democratic Transition and the Rise of Populist Majoritarianism: Constitutional Reform in Greece and Turkey

Democratic Transition and the Rise of Populist Majoritarianism: Constitutional Reform in Greece and Turkey By Ioannis N. Grigoriadis
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 120 Pages | ISBN : 3319575554 | 4.58 MB

This comparative study explores the impact of populist majoritarianism on Greek and Turkish democratic transition. Using case studies from Greece and Turkey, the author argues that while majoritarianism is often celebrated as a manifestation of popular sovereignty, it can undermine institutional performance and even stifle the process of democratic consolidation, contributing to a confrontational and inefficient democratic regime in cases of transition states where levels of social capital are low and social polarization is high.
