The Later Reformation in England by Diarmaid MacCulloch

The Later Reformation in England 1547-1603 by Diarmaid MacCulloch
Requirements: .PDF reader, 19.8 Mb
Overview: The English Reformation was the event that chiefly shaped English identity well into the 20th century. It made the English kingdom a self-consciously Protestant state dominating the British Isles, and boasting an established Church that eventually developed a peculiar religious agenda, Anglicanism. Although Henry VIII triggered a break with the Pope in his eccentric quest to rid himself of an inconveniently loyal wife, the Reformation soon slipped from his control, and in the reigns of his Tudor successors, it developed a momentum that made it one of the success stories of European Protestantism. In this book, MacCulloch discusses the developing Reformation in England through the later Tudor reigns: Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I. He provides a narrative of events, then discusses the ideas that shaped the English Reformation, and surveys the ways in which the English reacted to it, how far and quickly they accepted It, and assesses those who remained dissenters. This new edition is fully updated to take account of new material in the field that has appeared in the last decade.
Genre: Non-Fiction > History

Social Theory and Later Modernities by Ibrahim Kaya (.PDF)

Social Theory and Later Modernities: The Turkish Experience (Liverpool University Press – Studies in European Regional Cultures) by Ibrahim Kaya
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2.4 MB
Overview: The debate on varieties of modernity is central to current social theory and research, and this book explores the theme in relation to the culture and society of Turkey. The book focuses on the Kemalist project to create a modern Turkish nation-state, analyzing its historical background, the role of concepts of ethnicity and nation, and the configurations of state, society and economy in the new Turkish republic. The author then moves on to examine the relations between Islam and modernity, arguing that both must be understood as open to multiple interpretations rather than seen as monolithic and as diametrically opposed. He considers the rise of Islamism in Turkey and looks in particular at the paradoxical role of women activists within the Islamist movement. Ultimately, Kaya argues that Islamism must be understood as a modern movement, albeit a paradoxical one, rather than simply as a return to "tradition".
