Violence And Social Orders

by Douglass C. North, Violence And Social Orders Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Violence And Social Orders books, All societies must deal with the possibility of violence, and they do so in different ways. This book integrates the problem of violence into a larger social science and historical framework, showing how economic and political behavior are closely linked. Most societies, which we call natural states, limit violence by political manipulation of the economy to create privileged interests. These privileges limit the use of violence by powerful individuals, but doing so hinders both economic and political development. In contrast, modern societies create open access to economic and political organizations, fostering political and economic competition. The book provides a framework for understanding the two types of social orders, why open access societies are both politically and economically more developed, and how some 25 countries have made the transition between the two types.

Violence And Social Order

by Philippa C. Maddern, Violence And Social Order Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Violence And Social Order books, This challenging study sets out to explore the nature and meaning of violence in fifteenth-century England. Philippa Maddern examines violence on each side of the law--both in crime and in law enforcement--in order to uncover the attitudes and beliefs of the inhabitants of medieval East Anglia. She investigates the way their moral code was reflected in the procedures and punishments of the courts, and assesses the success of the legal system in maintaining authority and order. Dr. Maddern reveals the strong concern for order apparent in fifteenth-century society, and offers a subtle and intelligent analysis of the role of violence. Based on extensive archival research, her scholarly and original study makes an important contribution to our understanding of the medieval world-view.

Women Violence And Social Change

by R. Emerson Dobash, Women Violence And Social Change Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Women Violence And Social Change books, Women, Violence and Social Change demonstrates how refuges and shelters stand as the core of the battered women's movement, providing a basis for pragmatic support, political action and radical renewal. From this base movements in Britain and the United States have challenged the police, courts and social services to provide greater assistance to women. The book provides important evidence on the way social movements can successfully challenge institutions of the State as well as salutatory lessons on the nature of diverted and thwarted struggle. Throughout the book the Dobashes' years of researching violence against women is illustrated in the depth of their analysis. They maintain the tradition established in their first book, Violence Against Wives, which was widely accalimed.

Political Violence In South Asia

by Ali Riaz, Political Violence In South Asia Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Political Violence In South Asia books, Political violence has remained an integral part of South Asian society for decades. The region has witnessed and continued to encounter violence for achieving political objectives from above and from below. Violence is perpetrated by the state, by non-state actors, and used by the citizens as a form of resistance. Ethnic insurgency, religion-inspired extremism, and ideology-driven hostility are examples of violent acts that have emerged as challenges to the states which have responded with violence in the form of civil war and through violations of human rights disregarding international norms. This book explores various dimensions of political violence in South Asia, namely in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Each chapter either speaks to an important aspect of the political violence or provides an overall picture of the nature and scope of political violence in the respective country. Political violence is understood in the larger sense of political, that is, above and beyond institutions, and also as an integral part of social relationships where social norms and the role of individual agency play seminal roles. The contributions in this book incorporate both institutional and non-institutional dimensions of political violence. Exploring how everyday life in South Asian states and societies is transformed by the engagement with violence through direct and indirect methods, this book adopts an interdisciplinary framework; diverse methods are employed – from ethnographic readings to more macro level analyses. The phenomenon is explored from historical, sociological, and political perspectives. This book will be useful as a supplementary text in courses on South Asian Studies in general and South Asian Politics in particular.
