Martin Heidegger is one of the twentieth century-s most
important philosophers. His ground-breaking works have
had a hugely significant impact on contemporary thought
through their reception, appropriation and critique. His
thought has influenced philosophers as diverse as Sartre,
Merleau-Ponty, Arendt, Adorno, Gadamer, Levinas, Derrida
and Foucault, among others. In addition to his formative
role in philosophical movements such as phenomenology,
hermeneutics and existentialism, structuralism and post-
structuralism, deconstruction and post-modernism,
Heidegger has had a transformative effect on diverse
fields of inquiry including political theory, literary
criticism, theology, gender theory, technology and

This book contains original papers written by some of the
world-s leading scholars in anthropology, psychology,
philosophy, and theology exploring the scientific and
conceptual dimensions of religion and human conflict.
Authors investigate the following themes: the role of
religion in promoting social cohesion and the conditions
under which it will tend to do so, the role of religion
in enabling and exacerbating conflict between different
social groups and the conditions under which it will tend
to do so, and the policy responses that we may be able to
develop to ameliorate violent conflict and the limits to
compromise between different religions. The book also
contains two commentaries that distill, synthesize and
critically evaluate key aspects of the individual
chapters and central themes that run throughout the

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident that followed the
March 2011 tsunami and earthquake in Japan shocked the
world. In the wake the of the disaster, questions were
asked as to why Japanese antinuclear movements were not
able to prevent those with vested interests, such as
businesses, bureaucrats, the media and academics, from
facilitating nuclear energy policies? Taking this
question as its starting point, this book looks more
widely at the development and powerlessness of Japanese
civil society, and seeks to untangle this intersection
between social movements and civil society in postwar
Japan. Central to this book are the Japanese New Left
movements that emerged in the 1960s and 1970s, and the
impact they have had on civil society and politics.

In Japan, the figure of the suited, white-collar office
worker or business executive -salaryman- (or, arariiman),
came to be associated with Japan-s economic
transformation following World War Two. The ubiquitous
salaryman came to signify both Japanese masculinity, and
Japanese corporate culture, and in this sense, the
salaryman embodied -the archetypal citizen-. This book
uses the figure of he salaryman to explore.

comparing health, pension, and family policies, as well
as labor markets and corporate governance in the United
States, Sweden, and Germany. Demonstrating that the US
model of capitalism is not the only one that is viable,
Bowman encourages students not only to rethink their
assumptions about what policy alternatives are feasible,
but also to learn more about American capitalism through
insightful contrast. Covering a wide range of policy
areas and written in a crisp, engaging style, Capitalisms

economy and public policy.

The book analyses a range of price risk management
strategies from forward contracting through to futures
and options hedging, and finally to over-the-counter
products. Evaluation techniques are developed to aid
decision-making. The author concludes that forward market
development may be the exception rather than the norm,
and that whilst favourable price risk management outcomes
may be possible, they can sometimes be caused more by
luck than through good management. It is shown how
tactics are an important consideration in decision-making
to minimize costs and losses.

applying the threefold framework, testing explanations
with empirical data. Critical thinking questions then

The pseudo-Virgilian Aetna poem has fascinated textual
critics for centuries on account of its badly corrupted
state. Robinson Ellis, according to The Times the
-greatest English Latinist- of his age, worked on the
poem for decades, and his 1901 edition, which includes a
translation and full commentary, constitutes a
significant contribution to the study of the poem. His
work remains of interest today, both to scholars working
on the poem and to historians of classical scholarship.
In her new introduction to this reissue of the complete
Latin text and translation of the poem with Ellis-
commentary, Katharina Volk discusses Ellis- achievement
in the context of his career and as part of the history
of critical engagement with the Aetna. She also provides
an overview of work on the poem since Ellis- edition, and
