  • How Sociology Lost Public Opinion.Jeff Manza & Clem Brooks - 2012 - Sociological Theory 30 (2):89-113.
    In contemporary sociology the once prominent study of public opinion has virtually disappeared. None of the leading theoretical models in the closest disciplinary subfield (political sociology) currently provide ample or sufficiently clear space for consideration of public opinion as a possible factor in shaping or interacting with key policy or political outcomes in democratic polities. In this article, we unearth and document the sources of this curious development and raise questions about its implications for how political sociologists have come to (...)

  • Modern Empires and Nation-States.John Breuilly - 2017 - Thesis Eleven 139 (1):11-29.
    Empires and nation-states are not opposed or distinct forms of polity but closely linked forms. Pre-modern empire existed without any contrasting form of polity we might call a nation-state. Rather, they contrasted with non-national state forms such as city-states, small kingdoms and mobile, nomadic polities. These in turn were in constant interaction with any neighbouring empire or empires, perhaps becoming the core of an empire themselves, perhaps taking over all or part of an existing empire, perhaps maintaining some autonomy by (...)

  • Globalization and Nationalism.John A. Hall - 2000 - Thesis Eleven 63 (1):63-79.
    Many voices now proclaim that we live in a global age. Doubts are cast on this view in this paper, particularly insofar as it suggests that the nation-state has lost its functional salience for modernity. A first argument suggests, by means of varied figures and analytic consideration, that the world economy is far from globalized. A second argument adds to this an insistence of national diversity within capitalism. None of this is to suggest that nothing has changed. To the contrary, (...)

  • Democratic Theory and Democratization in Contemporary Brazil and Beyond1.José Maurício Domingues - 2013 - Thesis Eleven 114 (1):15-33.
    Universalism and particularism have become poles of modern social thought and lead to distinct definitions of democracy, citizenship, and social policy. Challenging Habermas and the Habermasians, this article argues that democracy can never be identified with domination. Meanwhile, contesting Chatterjee and Foucault, the author reaffirms citizenship and law in their various forms in relation to both bounded and unbounded serialities as the basis for democracy, beyond and despite governmentality. Latin America, and especially Brazil, with processes that check state domination and (...)

  • Great Revolutions of the 20th Century in a Civilizational Perspective.Jaroslav Krejčí - 2000 - Thesis Eleven 62 (1):71-90.
    The great revolutions of modern times have been analysed from various angles, but their civilizational aspects and contexts have on the whole been neglected. More specifically, the major 20th-century revolutions can be seen as particularly important cases of intercivilizational encounters. They represent different responses to the ascendant and challenging civilization of the West. The Western civilizational trajectory (or set of trajectories), based on a shift from fideism to empiricism and on multiple social dynamics fuelled by this cultural reorientation (such as (...)

  • Book Review: Beyond Globalization: Capitalism, Territoriality and the International Relations of Modernity, Written by Hannes LacherBook Review: Marxism and World Politics: Contesting Global Capitalism, Written by Alexander Anievas. [REVIEW]Daniel R. McCarthy - 2014 - Historical Materialism 22 (3-4):477-504.
    This article will discuss the ongoing development of a Marxist theory of international relations. Examining the work of Hannes Lacher and that of the contributors toMarxism and World Politicsreveals an overarching concern amongst this group of scholars to engage with the central concerns of the discipline of International Relations – the nature of the state, anarchy, and war. Their analysis provides an excellent starting point for the development of a Marxist approach to international relations.
