Bleich argues that Muslims have been constructed as ethno-racial outsiders in Western Europe over the past twenty years. Although the term "Muslim" was scarcely applied to immigrant communities in the decades following World War Two, the late 1980s and then the early 21st century marked two significant turning points in European conceptions of Muslims. He also argues that this construction of images was a political process, with media, political, and civic elites contributing to...

A broad comparative analysis suggests that this perception of the two forms of group identity as opposed and weighted in favor of religion is overdrawn: it suggests that the religious revival has operated primarily within the confines of national groups and that even so-called universal religions, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, and...

Nuovo discusses the ways in which Locke's religious motives combined with other more worldly ones in his thinking on these themes and, more broadly, how these relate to his frequently repeated characterization of himself as a lover of truth and as a...

For decades, two assumptions have been part of the scientific understanding of global warming-(1) natural forces kept Earth's climate in a warm 'interglacial' state for several millennia, and (2) humans first began to alter this state during the industrial era (the last two centuries). Both of these assumptions are flawed: natural processes have been pushing climate toward a cooler, partly glaciated state for thousands of years, and emissions of greenhouse gases from early farming held off most...

Arthur Hertzberg delivers the inaugural Hannah A. Quint Lecture in Jewish Studies, examining the historical context that continues to form the religious and political atmosphere of the Middle East. In particular, he presents the Jewish and the Arab response to the Balfour Declaration of 1917.
