  2. "Nostre Français n'unt talent de fuïr": The Song of Roland and the Enculturation of a Warrior Class

    Benton, John F.
    [Introduction] During the German siege of Paris in December 1870, a learned and patriotic medievalist, Gaston Paris, delivered a set of lectures at the Collège de France on La Chanson de Roland et la nationalité française. It would now be timely for a specialist in contemporary history and literature to prepare another study on the Song of Roland and modern nationalism, particularly in the period of World War I. Influential historians have blamed the newspapers and the popular press for inflaming public opinion on the eve of the Great War. That "yellow journalism" helped to indoctrinate the masses who marched enthusiastically to war cannot...

  6. The great decommunisation. Ukraine’s wartime historical policy. OSW Point of View 66 (65?) September 2017

    Olszański, Tadeusz A.
    The war with Russia which began in 2014 has triggered serious changes in the way history is thought about by the Ukrainian public, especially in opinion-forming circles. The liberal reflection critical about the nationalist tradition initiated somewhat earlier has been rejected since wartime requires heroic narratives above all. Ukraine also had to counteract the propaganda offensive from Russia which wanted to equate the Ukrainian patriotic movement with radical nationalism seen at the time of World War II, which it branded as ‘fascist’.

  9. When who and how matter: explaining the success of referendums in Europe

    Silagadze, Nanuli; Gherghina, Sergiu
    This article aims to identify the institutional factors that make a referendum successful. This comparative analysis seeks to explain the success of top-down referendums organized in Europe between 2001 and 2013. It argues and tests for the main effect of three institutional factors (popularity of the initiator, size of parliamentary majority, and political cues during referendum campaigns) and controls for the type of referendum and voter turnout. The analysis uses data collected from referendums and electoral databases, public opinion surveys, and newspaper articles. Results show that referendums proposed by a large parliamentary majority or with clear messages from political parties...

  11. Review of Hayyim Pesah and Eli Yassif, The Knight, the Demon and the Virgin: An Anthology of Hebrew Stories from the Middle Ages

    Ben-Amos, Dan
    In the currently charged world of Israeli public opinion, the publication of this book is a political act. The editors have crammed well known medieval Hebrew texts into a cheap, paperback format, using paper the acidity of which is more fitting for traditional "folk books" than for typical scholarly tomes designed for the library shelf. In this book readers will encounter the classics of Jewish folk literature--such as "The Story of the Jerusalemite," "Joseph Della Reina," and principle texts from Hebrew medieval romance literature such as "The Alexander Romance," a selection of "Tales of Sendebar," and a "Hebrew Arthurian Romance."...

  12. Ciudadanía sedentaria versus ciudadanía activa. Un nuevo canon social en el acceso a la salud y el bienestar

    Moscoso, D.J.; Serrano-de-Rosal, R.; Biedma-Velázquez, L.; Martin-Rodríguez, M.
    El artículo aborda un tema espinoso en nuestra época. La preocupación por el sedentarismo impregna el discurso médico, pero también el de la opinión pública. El trabajo no entra en el debate ni provee soluciones. Ofrece una perspectiva diferente sobre un asunto acotado antaño al colectivo médico. La actividad física y el deporte son fuente de salud. Los estudios biológicos y epidemiológicos así lo han demostrado. Pero la salud no es sólo la ausencia de enfermedad ni el estado biofísico de una persona. A ella contribuyen la cultura y las condiciones de vida. El bienestar es también reflejo de elementos...

  13. Passing the President's Program: Public Opinion and Presidential Influence in Congress

    Rivers, Douglas; Rose, Nancy L.
    Correlations between legislative support scores and presidential popularity do not accurately reflect the relationship between public opinion and presidential influence in Congress. Presidents make strategic choices to expend their public prestige to obtain congressional approval of programmatic initiatives. Previous studies have ignored such choices as well as other features of the strategic environment which tend to lower the apparent legislative success rates of popular presidents. A model of presidential and congressional behavior is proposed and it is estimated that a one percent increase in a president's public support level increases the president's legislative approval rate by approximately one percent (holding...

  14. El voto económico y estudio de agendas en España : aproximación a sus efectos en las elecciones generales del 2000 y 2011

    Mora Rodríguez, Alberto
    El principal objetivo de esta tesis doctoral es ofrecer evidencias empíricas de la influencia de la percepción del contexto económico y su gestión política en el comportamiento electoral de los españoles, en las elecciones generales celebradas en el año 2.000 y 2.011. Las elecciones objeto de estudio constituyen un escenario privilegiado para la corroboración de la hipótesis de la asimetría del voto, al tratarse de contextos económicos dispares, donde la economía se plantea como el principal issue de debate en la competición política. Asimismo, y con el objetivo de comprender el papel de los medios de comunicación en la construcción...

  16. EL TORITO DE LOS MUCHACHOS: LECTURA DE CONFESIONES, ESCENARIO DE OPINIONES

    Pisano,Juan Ignacio
    En El Torito de los Muchachos (1830), Luis Pérez despliega voces, no siempre gauchescas y federales, sino en ocasiones unitarias y letradas, que dicen verdades ficcionales bajo la forma de una confesión. En un momento histórico en el que la prensa era un vehículo de influencia sobre la opinión pública, Pérez orienta sus gacetas hacia sectores amplios por la inclusión de grupos iletrados a partir de lecturas orales. Este trabajo analiza las formas en que esas confesiones permitieron escenificar verdades en medio de una guerra de palabras que buscaron ocupar un espacio público imaginado como territorio de conflictos discursivos.

  17. Invisible Sky, Visible State: Environmental Governance and Political Support in China

    Ding, Iza
    How do political authorities in China respond to mounting environmental problems? Moreover, on what basis do they succeed in securing public approval in the realm of environmental governance? In this study, I develop answers to these questions using a wide array of qualitative and quantitative evidence, including in-depth interviews with environmental bureaucrats, officials and citizens, participant observation within China’s environmental bureaucracy, and an original national survey on environmental attitudes and behavior spanning 30 Chinese cities. I argue that local authorities perform symbolic responsiveness, defined as language and gestures undertaken by political actors in response to societal demands, as a strategy...

  18. Political Empowerment of European Citizens. A Comparative Public Opinion and Approach

    Alaminos, Antonio; Perea Crespo, Ignacia
    Over time, the European Union has undergone a number of highly significant integration processes on an economic, social and political level. With the structure of States, it has implemented a number of actions aimed at empowering citizens by harmonising different rights and producing relevant processes in first-generation political rights. Through the EU members’ public opinion, this article analyses the effects of European foreign migrants’ electoral rights in both local and European elections. With the analysis of the data from the 2010, 2012 and 2015 European barometers, it is concluded that there is a relation between the presence of European migrants...

  19. Before Plessy, Before Brown: The Development of the Law of Racial Integration in Louisiana and Kansas

    Kousser, J. Morgan
    In the face of the Nixon-Reagan counterrevolution against liberal decisions of the Warren Court, some liberal judges and legal commentators have called for an increased reliance on state courts for the protection of civil rights and civil liberties. To gauge how well state courts and legislatures protected civil rights in the nineteenth century, I examined twenty school integration cases and numerous legislative and state constitutional convention actions in Louisiana and Kansas from 1868 through 1903. Contrary to what Raoul Berger and others have asserted, black integrationists had many allies in the mainstream of the Republican party in the late 19th century....

  20. Des politiques publiques à l’égard des Roms. Hier comme aujourd’hui une catégorisation négative

    Delépine, Samuel

    In parallel with an institutionalization of the Roma issue at the European level, the measures against the Gipsy (expelling, stigmatization), namely in France, have continued to feed the political speech and the media and to orient the public opinion towards the evidence of a new public issue. It is interesting to see how this “Roma issue”, which turns social matters into ethnical matters, and which categorizes different populations in one single class, is finally based on the same grounds as the anti-Gipsy and anti-Roma speeches. As a consequence, the Roms have become a political subject fairly easy to manipulate, when...
