Cultural Encounters: European Travel Writings in the 1930s - First edition

2013, ISBN: 9781571815019

Paperback, ID: 638577316

Arktos Media Ltd. Paperback. New. Paperback. 292 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.5in. x 0.9in.New Culture, New Right is the first English-language study of the identitarian movements presently reshaping the contours of European politics. The studys focus is Alain de Benoists GRECE (Groupement de Recherche et dEtude pour la Civilisation Europenne), which Paul Piccone of Telos described as the most interesting group of continental thinkers since the existentialists of the 1950s and which elsewhere is seen as the leading school of contemporary Right-wing thought. Made up of veterans from various nationalist, traditionalist, far Right, and regionalist movements, the GRECE began as an association of French intellectuals committed to restoring the crumbling cultural foundations of European life and identity. Due to the quality of its publications and its philosophically persuasive reformulation of the Right project, it attracted an immediate audience. By the late 1970s it had recruited an impressive array of Continental thinkers to its ranks. In Italy, Germany, Belgium, and a number of other European countries, there have since emerged organizations and publishing concerns either directly linked to the Paris-based GRECE or involved in analogous endeavors. As a result of these diffusions, GRECE-style identitarianism has come to form the chief ideological alternative to the regnant liberalism. The European New Right to which the GRECE gave birth is new, however, not in the modernist sense of being novel, but in the traditionalist sense of reappropriating an origin whose meaningful possibilities remain open for realization. Such a revolutionary return to Europes roots has never seemed so urgent. After a half century under the liberal-democratic regimes imposed by the United States in 1945, Europeans now face extinction as a race and a culture. In opposition to the ethnocidal forces of the American Occupation and its European collaborators, New Rightists appeal to the primordial in their peoples heritage, aiming to awake a spirit of resistance and renaissance in them. The result, as documented in this introduction to their ideas, is one of the most formidable critiques ever made of the liberal project. Michael OMeara, Ph. D. , studied social theory at the coles des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, and modern European history at the University of California. He is the author of Guillaume Faye and the Battle of Europe (2013), also published by Arktos. This item ships from multiple locations.

The Irish have emigrated in vast numbers for centuries. More than any other Europeans they have been obliged to transplant, maintain and develop a national culture in novel, indifferent or hostile surroundings. This series of six books is an account of their various experiences all over the world. It is a comprehensive synthesis - drawing on history, geography, social science, and studies of literature, music and the arts to provide a detailed picture of the experience of migration and assimiliation over the centuries to the present day. Thus the series represents a major contribution both to migration studies and to the history of Ireland and the many countries in which the Irish have settled. This second volume of the series is an account of how Irish migrants actually settled in their new homes and flourished (usually) in the European, American and Australian environments in which they found themselves. It looks particularly at the Irish relationship with the great cities, and the cultural and medical impact of migration - the organised and directed flight from the Irish language, and the psychological distress endemic within isolated and embattled Irish communities. The book includes both case studies and theoretical chapters, and examines both elite and mass migration. Close attention is paid to the political and economic causes of Irish migration, past and present. ISBN 0718514270, Leicester University Press 1992, Berghahn Books. Paperback. New. Paperback. 288 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 5.9in. x 0.5in.The 1930s were one of the most important decades in defining the history of the 20th century. It saw the rise of right-wing nationalism, the challenge to established democracies and the full force of imperialist aggression. Cultural Encounters makes an important contribution to our understanding of the ideological and cultural forces which were active in defining notions of national identity in the 1930s. By examining the work of those who used travel writing to articulate perceptions of their own and other cultures, the book gives a comprehensive account of the complex intellectual climate of the 1930s. Remapping Cultural History seeks an alternative to northern European or North American models of cultural history, by focusing on those parts of the world that speak, or have spoken, French, Italian, Spanish, or Portuguese. Preference will be given to volumes that cross national and disciplinary boundaries, that explore areas of culture that have previously received little attention, or that make a significant contribution to rethinking the ways in which cultural history is theorized and narrated. The series editor is Jo Labanyi, Professor at the Institute of Romance Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London, and Professor in the School of Modern Languages, Southampton University. She is also the author of Gender and Modernisation in the Spanish Realist Novel (OUP, 2000). This item ships from multiple locations.

Cultural Encounters - Paperback

ISBN: 9781571815019

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: Berghahn Books], "These timely reconsiderations of European Travel writing from the 1930s reassert the oppositional primacy of subjective translations and disavow hermetic notions that travel should or even can be divorced from socio-political or cultural contexts." Journeys "Cultural Encounters offers a rich, varied and yet impressively coherent collection of essays on the meanings and practices of travel writing in 1930s Europe. Carefully building on theoretical interest in travel writing of recent years, the essays follow written journeys to Graham Greene's Liberia and Lorca's Cuba, to Fascist Italy's Greece and France's Indochina, and many more. Throughout, texts and authors are shown to be alive with hybrid constructions of self and of ideological, national and colonial identity. What is more, the book provides compelling reasons for seeing 1930s travel writing as being of particular fascination, lying on a cusp between the Depression, totalitarianism, colonialism and modernism, and the seeds of mass tourism, post-colonialism and globalization." Re-reading German literature since 1945, Robert Gordon, Cambridge University The 1930s were one of the most important decades in defining the history of the twentieth century. It saw the rise of right-wing nationalism, the challenge to established democracies and the full force of imperialist aggression. Cultural Encounters makes an important contribution to our understanding of the ideological and cultural forces which were active in defining notions of national identity in the 1930s. By examining the work of writers and journalists from a range of European countries who used the medium of travel writing to articulate perceptions of their own and other cultures, the book gives a comprehensive account of the complex intellectual climate of the 1930s.
