Wie kaum eine andere soziologische Theorie der vergangenen Jahrzehnte bietet die Systemtheorie Niklas Luhmanns kulturwissenschaftliche Anschlussmöglichkeiten. Wer sich allerdings mehr vornimmt, als Luhmannsche Ansätze bloß ‚anzuwenden’, muss die Architektur der Theorie mitsamt ihren Vorentscheidungen, Ausblendungen und inhärenten Zwängen überprüfen. Das führt unmittelbar zu der Schlüsselfrage nach dem Verhältnis zwischen ‚System’ und ‚Kultur’. Gibt es ein ‚System der Kultur’? Und gibt es umgekehrt eine ‚Kultur des Systems’, eine kulturelle Codierung systematischer Vorgänge, die für deren Funktionsweise unentbehrlich ist, ohne von der Systemtheorie bisher hinlänglich beschrieben worden zu sein? Die Beiträge dieses Bandes gehen den Widerständen und der Widerständigkeit einer Theorie nach, die mit dem Anspruch auftritt, ein fugenloses Gesamtwerk zu präsentieren. Sie arbeiten Stil und Metaphorik heraus, wie sie der Systemtheorie eigen sind; sie erinnern an die darin versenkten Denktraditionen und binden die soziologische Theorie an ihre Herkunft aus Biologie und Kybernetik zurück.

The fourth volume in Fell's eight-volume work, this study focuses on ancient, medieval, and early modern Europe. Fell charts the overall patterns of historiographical "debates" in modern discussion on the origins of legislation, public law, sovereignty, and the state, covering both historical periods and geographical aspects of the topic. Countries examined include Italy, France, England, Germany, Spain, and the Netherlands, while theories that attribute the origins of the state to specific time periods are also explored. The work concludes with supplemental bibliographical essays that cover all four volumes.

The second of three volumes of essays by Quentin Skinner, one of the world's leading intellectual historians. This collection includes some of his most important essays on the political thought of the Italian renaissance, each of which has been carefully revised for publication in this form. All of Professor Skinner's work is characterised by philosophical power, limpid clarity, and elegance of exposition; these essays, many of which are now recognised classics, provide a fascinating and convenient digest of the development of his thought. Professor Skinner has been awarded the Balzan Prize Life Time Achievement Award for Political Thought, History and Theory.

Crusading Peace

Christendom, the Muslim World, and Western Political Order

Tomaz Mastnak's provocative analysis of the roots of peacemaking in the Western world elucidates struggles for peace that took place in the high and late Middle Ages. Mastnak traces the ways that eleventh-century peace movements, seeking to end violence among Christians, shaped not only power structures within Christendom but also the relationship of the Western Christian world to the world outside. The unification of Christian society under the banner of "holy peace" precipitated a fundamental division between the Christian and non-Christian worlds, and the postulated peace among Christians led to holy war against non-Christians.

The long-accepted standard view is that the gradual polarization of Court and Parliament during the reigns of James I and Charles I reflected the split between absolutists (who upheld the divine right of the monarchy to rule) and constitutionalists (who resisted tyranny by insisting the monarch was subject to law) and resulted inevitably in civil war.

In The Death and Life of Great American Cities durchleuchtet Jane Jacobs 1961 die fragwürdigen Methoden der Stadtplanung und Stadtsanierung in Amerika, der "New Yorker" nannte es das unkonventionellste und provozierendste Buch über Städtebau seit langem. Die deutsche Ausgabe wurde schnell auch im deutschsprachigem Raum zu einer viel gelesenen und diskutierten Lektüre. Sie ist jetzt wieder in einem Nachdruck zugänglich, mit einem Vorwort von Gerd Albers (1993), das nach der Aktualität dieser Streitschrift fragt.
