The Syi-Gung Transition, A. Taeko Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

The Syi-Gung Transition, A. Taeko Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

George Kennedy inaugurated the rational study of the Chun/Chyou (CC) by suggesting that the completeness of CC data for the deaths of non-Lu rulers need not be a coded message from some later moral arbiter, but may simply reflect the information available to the Lu court, and that this in turn might depend on the quality of interstate communications.1 I here develop this suggestion, and argue for a turning point under Syi-gung (r 0659-0627), within Kennedy’s “gradually widening horizon” – a change, part of which indeed entailed a wider geographical awareness, in the position of Lu as one ...

Mwodz 14-16 "Universal Love", A. Taeko Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Mwodz 14-16 "Universal Love", A. Taeko Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

I here examine the Mwodz Jyen Ai or “Universal Love” triplet. As with MZ 17-19, I wish to ask whether they may be regarded as a developmental series, rather than (as Graham claims)1 a group of variants, and to consider their specifics in more detail than was possible in my paper on the Mician ethical chapters.2


The Fragment Theory Of Mz 14, 17 And 20, A. Taeko Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

The Fragment Theory Of Mz 14, 17 And 20, A. Taeko Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

A C Graham has suggested that the three shortest ethical triplet chapters, those which do not begin with the standard opening formula “Our Master Mwodz says”, are not chapters, but fragments or summaries of other chapters; specifically, that MZ 17 (now titled “AgainstWar”) is “a fragment from the lost ending of chapter 26” (“Will of Heaven”), and that MZ 14 and 20 are “complete summaries of the Mohist doctrines of universal love and thrift in expenditures without illustrative quotations or answers to objections and almost without close parallelisms with chapters in the same triad.” 1 I have previously argued that ...

Recent Changes In The Armed Conflict In Colombia, Fernando Estrada 2009 Universidad Externado de Colombia

Recent Changes In The Armed Conflict In Colombia, Fernando Estrada

Fernando Estrada

Analyst in the strategy and operations of guerrillas and paramilitaries, have suggested that the Colombian conflict analysis should show the differences between clusters paramilitary. Not only because after the 80s, drug trafficking has played a decisive role, but because the geography of territories and control combinations have not been studied sufficiently. Geography of armed conflict should also provide tools to understand the impact of war on natural resources, for example. We sustain that while the drug economy has filtered the structure of semi-groups, promoting market competition and private security protection, drug trafficking does not explain absolutely all sources of violence ...

Power, Conflict And Resistance: Social Movements, Networks And Hierarchies, Athina Karatzogianni, Andrew Robinson 2009 University of Hull

Power, Conflict And Resistance: Social Movements, Networks And Hierarchies, Athina Karatzogianni, Andrew Robinson

Athina Karatzogianni

Drawing on theory by Deleuze and others on the structure of hierarchies and networks, the authors seek to reinterpret World Systems Theory in order to engage with issues of power, resistance, and conflict in the contemporary world. The authors engage with the world-systems, contemporary scholarship in global politics, and new concepts: global cities, bifurcations, hegemonic transitions, the relationship between capitalism and the state, the position of East Asia, active and reactive network movements. They develop new theory to interpret empirical cases of resistance and conflict including: Afghanistan, Iraq, anti-terror paranoia, political Islam, specific indigenous and activist movements

You Can’T Be Nonviolent Without Violence: The Rainbow Family’S Nonkilling Nomadic Utopia And Its Survival Of Persistent State Violence, Michael I. Niman Ph.D. 2009 Buffalo State College

You Can’T Be Nonviolent Without Violence: The Rainbow Family’S Nonkilling Nomadic Utopia And Its Survival Of Persistent State Violence, Michael I. Niman Ph.D.

Michael I Niman Ph.D.

Since 1972, the Rainbow Family of Living Light, a nonhierarchical nomadic community, has been holding large temporary gatherings in remote forests around the world to pray for world peace and to create a model of a functioning utopian society. Wherever and whenever they gather, the temporary Rainbow city remains essentially unchanged, modeling what anarchist theorist Hakim Bey calls the Temporary Autonomous Zone (TAZ). Revolutions, Bey writes, seek permanent change and, in doing so, lead to violence and martyrdom. Revolutionaries aim to hold territory. The TAZ, by contrast, does not directly engage the state, but instead “liberates an area (of land ...


Evolution Of Ba "Hegemon" Theory, A. Taeko Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Evolution Of Ba "Hegemon" Theory, A. Taeko Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

Everyone knows that the ba institution, the Jou Kings’ delegation of power to a series of strong vassals, was important in Spring and Autumn China.1 Unfortunately for this consensus, the Chun/Chyou (CC), our primary source, does not mention the ba institution. The later Dzwo Jwan (DJ) does mention it, and uses three different terms for it: mv ng-ju, [hou]-bwo, and ba! . None of these terms appears in the CC. I find that the three DJ terms reflect three stages in the evolution of the ba theory, and that the theory is not an 07th century historical fact ...


Messianic Movements And Failed Prophecies In Israel - Five Case Studies, Motti Inbari 2009 Brandeis University

Messianic Movements And Failed Prophecies In Israel - Five Case Studies, Motti Inbari

Motti Inbari Dr.

This article examines several examples of messianic individuals and movements in Israel that have had to confront the failure of their predictions of imminent collective Redemption. These case studies suggest that individuals who expect Messiah’s immediate coming, but who do not share this conviction with others, may experience greater freedom to reinterpret their prophecy and then proselytize a new vision of Redemption. When a small group’s predictions are publicized widely and then fail, its members may find themselves facing a particularly sharp crisis of faith because of social pressure and may decide to abandon both the prophecy and ...


The Relationship Between Tax Deductions And The Market For Unprovenanced Antiquities, Erin L. Thompson 2009 John Jay College, City University of New York

The Relationship Between Tax Deductions And The Market For Unprovenanced Antiquities, Erin L. Thompson

Erin L. Thompson

This Note examines the relation between the market for unprovenanced antiquities' and Congress' allowance of tax deductions for donations of in-kind gifts to nonprofit organizations. Part I lays out the current rules on charitable deductions. Part II surveys the antiquities market, arguing that the majority of unprovenanced antiquities sold in the American market during the last few decades were looted and illegally exported from their countries of origin in order to feed this market. Part III begins with a discussion of several cases of donated antiquities and then moves to a general suggestion that the current charitable deduction rules, at ...

Pi(O)Us Medievalism Vs. Catholic Modernism: The Case Of George Tyrell, Richard Utz 2009 Western Michigan University

Pi(O)Us Medievalism Vs. Catholic Modernism: The Case Of George Tyrell, Richard Utz

Richard Utz

Investigates the use of "medievalism" by George Tyrell in his book, Medievalism. A Reply to Cardinal Mercier (1908). Tyrell, who argues in favor of a modern(ist), intelligent, Catholic faith, sees the Church's reorientation toward the Middle Ages in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century as a misdirected form of originalism, which he rejects as "medievalism."
