Since it first aired in 1966, Star Trek led American television into a more progressive era by presenting a diverse cast interacting as equals, demonstrating expertise and efficiency as they lead a starship across the galaxy. To this day, the Star Trek franchise strives to inspire viewers to find beauty in diversity and progress. In Social Movements and the Collective Identity of the Star Trek Fandom: Boldly Going Where No Fans Have Gone Before, David G. LoConto explores the development of the Star Trek fandom from its tough beginnings in the 1960s to its popularity explosion in the 1990s and its triumphant return in 2017. LoConto analyzes the cultural phenomena of Star Trek through a social psychological approach, using symbolic interaction theory and strategic ritualization theory as well as ideas from Habermas and Foucault to track the fandom's movements, values, and evolution.

Today it is assumed that we understand contemporary nationalism and nation-building. Researchers rarely consider the very different traditions from which such state-building emerged. Instead, there is almost too much discussion of the "global village," with its supposed uniformity and inevitable trajectories. We need to view modernity as something other than a single condition with a preordained future. New visions of a modern civilization are emerging throughout the world, calliing for a far-reaching appraisal of the older visions of modernization. Following Eisenstadt's and Schluchter's introduction, Bjrn Wittrock explores the varieties and transitions of early modern societies, noting that only by looking at societies' collective identities and their modes of mediating in the public sphere can the distinguishing factors between modernity be appreciated. Sheldon Pollock discusses the use of vernacular language in India through its literary culture and polity, 1000-1500. Sanjay Subrahmanyam, sums up major developments in the recent historiography of South Asia from 1400 to 1750. David L. Howell focuses on the boundaries of the early modern Japanese state, including its political boundaries and the boundaries of collective identity and social status. Mary Elizabeth Berry examines public life in authoritarian Japan. Frederic Wakeman, Jr. probes the boundaries of the political game and how they were affected by the increased political centralization that developed after the disorder of the Ming-Qing transition during the seventeenth century. Alexander Woodside discusses territorial order and collective-identity tensions in Confucian Asia. Bernhard Giesen argues that the French Enlightenment can be described as an extension of absolutist court culture. Finally essay, Vctor Prez-Daz examines the state and public sphere in Spain during the Ancient Regime contrasting two ideal types of states--a "nomocratic" model and a "teleocratic" model. This volume addresses cultural and political practices not only from outside the European and American spheres but also over long periods of time in which the internal dynamics of other civilizations become visible. Its broad-ranging use of empirical materials enables us to think comparatively and historically about the ways in which different modernities took shape. Shmuel N. Eisenstadt is professor emeritus of sociology, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Wolfgang Schluchter is professor of sociology, University of Heidelberg, and dean of the Max Weber Center for Cultural and Social Studies, University of Erfurt. Bjrn Wittrock is Lars Hierta Professor of Government at Stockholm University and director and permanent fellow of the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study in the Social Sciences (SCASSS) at Uppsala.

From the shaping of identities and belongings through to current reconfigurations of nation, governance and state under a Hindu-Right dispensation, this book tracks the sentiments and structures that sustain the nation and nationalism in India. Nation, Nationalism and the Public Sphere: Religious Politics in India provides wide-ranging accounts of the growth and transformations of the nation, focusing especially on the intimate interplay of nation-state and nationalism with dominant religion. Drawing upon the perspectives of history, politics, anthropology, literature, film and media studies, this book explores key themes such as the appropriation and impact of western concepts of religion and the modern in postcolonial India and Pakistan, corporate bids to foster faith by erecting temples, formations of contemporary cosmopolitan religious imaginaries, the politics of cow protection, the rise of Narendra Modi as a national hero, and the fetish of the national in news channel debates. The book provides important insights into the success of the Hindu-Right, the discourse of religious–cultural nationalism, and their ramifications for democracy and citizenship.

The Transnationalization of Public Spheres takes a fresh look at a widely debated question in international relations and political communication research: How can public discourses contribute to democratic governance beyond the nation state? Focusing on the 'democratic deficit' of the European Union it analyzes to what extent domestic media discourses bridge the gulf between the EU and its citizens. The book combines quantitative and qualitative analyses of media content and evaluates them from a democratic theory perspective.

Women, Politics and the Public Sphere is a socio-historical analysis of the relationship between women, politics and the public sphere. The book focuses intellectually on the legacy of eighteenth century women thinkers, writers and political philosophers in understanding the emergence of women public intellectuals in the US and UK and highlights how women public intellectuals now reflect much more social and cultural diversity. Women public intellectuals in the US examined in the book include: Samantha Power, Anne-Marie Slaughter, Elizabeth Warren, Condoleezza Rice, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton and Sheryl Sandberg. The implications for the political representation of women in the West and globally will be considered. The book is about the fault-lines established in the eighteenth century for later developments in social and political discourse.

This book contributes to the theoretical and policy debates on the existence and development of a European public sphere. It presents a critical discussion of the links between media, history and politics in Europe by looking at the re-organization of ideological and political determinants (such as Left-Right or East-West) and debating the existence of a European editorial culture. The volume also examines how international crises have been debated in national media in Europe throughout the post war period. It looks empirically at the national media coverage of eight crisis events: the 1956 revolution in Budapest, the building of the Berlin Wall in 1961, the May 1968 youth revolt in Paris, the events of August 1968 in Prague, the declaration of a state of war in Poland in 1981, the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the outbreak of the Second Gulf War in 2003 and the Mohammed cartoons crisis in 2006.

"This book investigates how different social groups used history as a political instrument in Sweden during the second half of the eighteenth century (1740-1792). More specifically, it analyzes how representations of the past were used to influence behavior, advance and legitimize claims to power, mould opinion and forge collective identities. In addition to analyzing how historians conceived of the relationship between history writing and society, the study considers how three social groups or actors - commoners, nobles and King Gustavus III - used history during a time of intense social conflict. These questions are pursued within the context of competing efforts to describe society and the ways in which they were reformulated in the emerging public sphere. Combining textual analysis and diffusion studies, this dissertation examines both the meaning and the transmission of texts. The book sheds light on Enlightenment conceptions of society; the invention of democratic ideology; the early steps toward a language of class; the role of the audience in publishing; the concept of the public; and the emergence of a new political culture during a formative period in European history: the age of democratic revolutions."

The articles included in this Yearbook of the Sociology of Islam focus on two perspectives. Some link the comparative analysis of Islam to ongoing debates on the Axial Age and its role in the formation of major civilizations, while others are more concerned with historical constellations and sources involved in the formation of Islam as a religion and a civilization. More than any other particular line of inquiry, new historical and sociological approaches to the Axial Age have revived the idea of comparative civilizational analysis and channeled it into more specific projects. A closer look at the very problematic place of Islam in this context will help to clarify questions about the Axial version of civilizational theory as well as issues in Islamic studies and sociological approaches to modern Islam. Contributors include Said Arjomand, Shmuel N. Eisenstadt, Josef van Ess and Raif G. Khoury. Each of the editors are sociologists who have widely published on related issues.

Celebrated by some as the source of political value and a key organizational principle, decried by others as treacherous and intellectually moribund, the nation- state and nationalism have endured despite the momentous upheavals of the 20th century. But in an age of increasing globalization and political fragmentation, does the nation-state have the relevance it once had? Do the novel challenges and historical developments we face demand that we rethink our understanding of national sovereignty and the principle of self-determination? Do we need to revise our conception of justice and democracy? And how can we, in such circumstances, best manage violent conflict arising from struggles between rival national projects and identities? This thought-provoking volume brings together leading international scholars within political science and theory to explore these questions.
