"With its principal focus upon the years since 1959, this work draws on materials in Portuguese, Spanish and English, as well as bringing to bear the disciplines of religious, sociological and historical studies. Analyzing the interplay of societal, institutional and theological factors which led to the emergence of the base ecclesial community and liberative theological discourse in Brazil, this work is of value to scholars and students alike who have a specific interest in either of these ecclesial phenomena or a general interest in the self-understanding and activity of the church in Latin America." "Avoiding reductionist approaches of all kinds, this work offers a balanced and comprehensive analysis in which both material conditions and ideational concerns are given equal consideration as mutually influencing the emergence of a liberative theological discourse and the base ecclesial community in Brazil. This balanced and comprehensive treatment furnishes insight into the manner in which prevailing theological trends, existing societal conditions and enduring institutional preoccupations interacted to generate these two phenomena and set the context for their impact upon the church and society at large."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

In the wake of the monstrous projects of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and others in the twentieth century, the idea of utopia has been discredited. Yet, historian Jay Winter suggests, alongside the “major utopians” who murdered millions in their attempts to transform the world were disparate groups of people trying in their own separate ways to imagine a radically better world. This original book focuses on some of the twentieth-century’s “minor utopias” whose stories, overshadowed by the horrors of the Holocaust and the Gulag, suggest that the future need not be as catastrophic as the past. The book is organized around six key moments when utopian ideas and projects flourished in Europe: 1900 (the Paris World's Fair), 1919 (the Paris Peace Conference), 1937 (the Paris exhibition celebrating science and light), 1948 (the Universal Declaration of Human Rights), 1968 (moral indictments and student revolt), and 1992 (the emergence of visions of global citizenship). Winter considers the dreamers and the nature of their dreams as well as their connections to one another and to the history of utopian thought. By restoring minor utopias to their rightful place in the recent past, Winter fills an important gap in the history of social thought and action in the twentieth century.

This collection of essays concerns the development of contextualized theologies of liberation in Palestine and the indigenous Palestinian people's struggle for justice and liberation. The work is innovative because of its inclusion of indigenous perspectives within its remit and the introduction of new concepts such as civil liberation theology. The collection offers other ways to look at biblical discourses and their impact on the ongoing conflict, ways to live peace, ways to be ethical when visiting these conflicted lands, understandings of resource ethics, and even a new way to understand how we approach our understanding of liberation theology. Contributors include well-known scholars from Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Palestinian-Israeli, Indian, American, and British contexts. This work goes beyond standard academic collections. It is aimed not only at scholars and students but also at peace activists and policymakers. It should be of use not only in academic courses but also for practitioners of conflict resolution, peace and reconciliation.
