The Aristocracy In England And Tuscany 1000 1250

This volume examines the aristocracy in Tuscany and in England across a period of two and a half centuries (1000-1250). It deals first with Tuscany, tracing the history of the aristocracy and illustrating its nature and evolution, and observing aristocratic behaviour and attitudes, and how aristocrats related to other members of society. Peter Coss then examines the history of England in the same periods. It is not, however, a comparative history, but employs Italian insights to look at the aristocracy in England and to move away from the traditional interpretation which revolves around Magna Carta and the idea of English exceptionalism. By offering a study of the aristocracy across a wide time-frame and with themes drawn from Italian historiography, Coss offers a new approach to studying aristocracy within its own contexts.

This thesis offers a critical analysis of the underlying logic of Britain’s counter-extremism in schools strategy. It begins with a foundational concern regarding the emphasis placed on countering ideology in countering extremism, and the challenge facing educationalists to both promote a consensus around moderate values, while also promoting value diversity and pluralism. The thesis finds the strategy contested and contradictory - how can a school develop critical thinking while also promoting a fixed set of values? The thesis deconstructs these contradictory components of counter-extremism education, in order to critically examine the political realms of extremism and counter-extremism: what is the world after extremism that the strategy is hoping to bring about? Through exploring the lessons plans, PowerPoint presentations and worksheets used in classrooms, and deploying a method of critical discourse analysis, this thesis asks: how do the contested and contradictory objectives of counter-extremism education manifest in the teaching materials designed to fulfil the strategy? Adopting a deconstructionist, discourse analysis approach, and through the lenses of ideograph theory, securitisation theory, critical race theory, and the theory of agonism, this analysis uncovers what I term a ‘siege mentality’. The moderate centre is painted as being threatened and under attack from a poorly-defined notion of extremism, and must be defended at all costs. This securitisation of education, tasked with securing the moderate centre from attack, leads to a realm of exceptional politics in which the very values that are being defended - those of liberal democracy - are being suspended for their own protection. Values that stray too far from a moderate consensus are portrayed as ‘extreme’, and the modes of subjectivity deemed permissible within the ‘moderate’ are narrow, restrictive and racialised. The thesis finishes by asking how else this siege mentality could be conceptualised. Through replacing the consensus central to current conceptualisations of counter-extremism (that once everyone agrees with the moderate, there will be no extremism), with a pluralistic acceptance of diversity and conflict, the thesis sets out how a conceptual framework of agonism can offer new ways of, not countering, but encountering extremism.

Israel S Long War With Hezbollah

The ongoing conflict between Israel and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah is now in its fourth decade and shows no signs of ending. Raphael D. Marcus examines this conflict since the formation of Hezbollah during Israel’s occupation of Lebanon in the early 1980s. He critically evaluates events including Israel’s long counterguerrilla campaign throughout the 1990s, the Israeli withdrawal in 2000, the 2006 summer war, and concludes with an assessment of current tensions on the border between Israel and Lebanon related to the Syrian civil war. Israel’s Long War with Hezbollah is both the first complete military history of this decades-long conflict and an analysis of military innovation and adaptation. The book is based on unique fieldwork in Israel and Lebanon, extensive research into Hebrew and Arabic primary sources, and dozens of interviews Marcus conducted with Israeli defense officials, high-ranking military officers of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), United Nations personnel, a Hezbollah official, and Western diplomats. As an expert on organizational learning, Marcus analyzes ongoing processes of strategic and operational innovation and adaptation by both the IDF and Hezbollah throughout the long guerrilla conflict. His conclusions illuminate the dynamics of the ongoing conflict and illustrate the complexity of military adaptation under fire. With Hezbollah playing an ongoing role in the civil war in Syria and the simmering hostilities on the Israel-Lebanon border, students, scholars, diplomats, and military practitioners with an interest in Middle Eastern security issues, Israeli military history, and military innovation and adaptation can ill afford to neglect this book.

Castle studies have been transformed in recent years with a movement away from the traditional interpretation of castles as static military structures towards a wider view of castles as aesthetic symbols of power, with a more complicated relationship with the landscape. Supported by numerous color photographs of the most `tangible' remains of the Middle Ages, this clearly written and very accessible study makes the most current ideas about the role of the castle available to a wider and more general readership. Robert Liddiard discusses the history of castle building before and after the Norman Conquest, considering the Norman and medieval definition of the castle, and he reassesses the military defensive capabilities of castles, demolishing the idea that they were built in response to military policy. Instead, they proved a very effective means for aristocrats to display their status. Liddiard evaluates the role of the castle in warfare and the extent to which sieges played a part in conflicts before turning his attention to the varied role of the castle in the landscape (and in the lives of those who lived in and around it) and its relationship to its environment, arguing that the aesthetic setting of many castles was not a happy accident. Throughout, the study is supported by numerous case studies which examine the archaeological, architectural and historical evidence for numerous castles.
