Islamistische Drehscheibe Schweiz

Neue Zürcher Zeitung NZZ Libro


Die Angst vor Terroranschlägen greift um sich und beginnt das Leben vieler Menschen zu dominieren. Dennoch versäumt

es die Politik, den Organisationen und Financiers, die den Nährboden zur Radikalisierung junger Muslime bereiten, das Handwerk zu legen. Saïda Keller-Messahli befasst sich seit Jahren mit den Islamverbänden und deren Moscheen in der Schweiz und in Europa und hat beunruhigende Entwicklungen aufgedeckt. Salafistische Wanderprediger und radikale Imame versuchen in Moscheen, mittels Lies!-Ständen und sogenannter Seelsorge in Gefängnissen, Flüchtlingsunterkünften und an Schulen Einfluss zu nehmen. Sie verbreiten eine erzkonservative Auslegung des Islams, die jede Erneuerung verhindert. Drahtzieher sind die reichen Golfstaaten, allen voran Saudi-Arabien und die dort gegründete Islamische Weltliga. Die Politik ist angesichts dieser globalen Netzwerke ratlos, die Behörden naiv – doch nur eine konsequente Politik der Nulltoleranz kann dem Treiben der Islamisten Einhalt gebieten.

Saïda Keller-Messahli (* 1957) ist eine tunesisch-schweizerische Romanistin und islamische Menschenrechtsaktivistin. Sie ist Gründerin und Präsidentin des Forums für einen fortschrittlichen Islam.

Connecting Canadians

Clement, AndrewGurstein, MichaelLongford, GrahamMoll, MaritaShade, Leslie Regan (Hrsg.) | Athabasca University Press


Connecting Canadians represents the work of the Community Research Alliance for Community Innovation and Networking (CRACIN), the largest national and international research effort to examine the burgeoning field of community informatics, a cross-disciplinary approach to the mobilization of information and communications technologies (ICT) for community change.

Funded for four years by the SSHRC's Initiative for the New Economy, CRACIN systematically studied a wide variety of Canadian community ICT initiatives, bringing perspectives from sociology, computer science, critical theory, women's studies, library and information sciences, and management studies to bear on networking technologies. A comprehensive thematic account of this in-depth research, Connecting Canadians will be an essential resource for NGOs, governments, the private sector, and multilateral agencies across the globe.

Adèle Hugo

Goose Lane Editions


When Victor Hugo died in 1885, the world was shocked to discover that he had a lone survivor: his daughter Adèle, incarcerated in an asylum for insane gentlewomen. Adèle Hugo was an accomplished, intelligent, and ambitious young woman whose potential shrank with every year she spent under her tyrannical father’s roof. At thirty-three, she fell desperately in love with an English soldier who quickly lost interest in everything about her except her money. Her obsession with him proved her undoing. In Adèle Hugo: La Misérable, Leslie Smith Dow recounts Adèle’s nine-year pursuit of her unwilling lover from Guernsey to Halifax to Barbados, her return to her father’s sphere by a former slave, and the progressive schizophrenia that finally incapacitated her. Smith Dow bases Adèle’s stranger-than-fiction history on her bizarre diaries, her family’s letters, and the testimony of eyewitnesses. In this new ebook-only edition, Leslie Smith Dow updates the saga of Adèle Hugo with the fascinating mystery of a painting attributed to the Impressionist master Édouard Manet. This painting came to light in an online auction around 2004. After the purchaser contacted Smith Dow for her opinion, the author and the painting’s new owner set out to determine whether the subject of the painting was Adèle Hugo, and whether it was indeed painted by Manet. Smith Dow’s new afterword recounts their sleuthing in dramatic style.

---

"A very interesting and highly readable book. Leslie Smith Dow provides a thorough and imaginative interpretation of Adèle Hugo."

---

"A fascinating story."

---

"Adèle Hugo: La Misérable is elegantly written and concise. All good news, it must be said, for history and literature buffs alike."

---

"Adèle Hugo: La Misérable is riveting. This book has themes and ideas and is written in plain, crisp sentences. Dow brings a much deeper feminist perspective to her rich and rounded telling of Adèle's story. It is a book well worth reading."

---

"Leslie Smith Dow's Adèle Hugo: La Misérable is the intriguing story of one daughter's bizarre but ultimately hapless rebellion against the restrictions of her lot. La Misérable succeeds very well as the sympathetic portrait of a woman driven to freakish lengths in search of freedom."

---

"Leslie Smith Dow has written in a very readable style the story of the fascinating and almost unbelievable life of Adèle Hugo. I highly recommend this book, especially to readers interested in women's issues and in psychology."

---

"In this immensely readable book, Dow has captured with clarity and assurance the frustrations of being an upper-class woman in 19th-century French society. Fans of mystery, romance, and history will all enjoy a fast-paced and sympathetic portrait of a talented but troubled young woman."

---

"Award-winning Ottawa author Leslie Smith Dow writes in a lucid and factual style that is as interesting and as readable as a well-written novel. The story she has pieced together from numerous sources is an astounding one. One of the most impressive features of Dow"s writing is the way in which she is able to present not only Adèle but also the events and people in her life in all their complexity."

---

"Ce livre est presque le roman d'une vie, mais aussi une histoire qui nous fair voir le grand poète sous une lumière bein differente que celle à laquelle on est habitué."

What We Talk About When We Talk About War

Goose Lane Editions


An Amazon.ca Editor's Pick for 2012 and a Globe and Mail Top 100 Book of 2012

Shortlisted, Governor General's Award for Non-Fiction, Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing, and John W. Dafoe Book Prize

Longlisted, Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction

A provocative examination of how communications has shaped the language of the media, and vice versa, and how rhetoric shapes how Canadians thinks of themselves as a nation and Canada's engagement in peacekeeping, war, and on the international stage.

According to Richler, each phase of engagement in Afghanistan has been shaped not only by rhetoric but an overarching narrative structure. This topic is very much in discussion at the moment. With the withdrawal of Canadian troops (at least in part) from Afghanistan, it becomes clear there had been a rhetorical cycle. Where once Canada wielded the myth of itself as a peacekeeping nation, the past decade has seen a marked shift away from this, emphasizing the Canadian soldier as warrior. Yet now, as the country withdraws, the oratorical language we use steps away from heroes, able warriors, and sacrifice and back towards a more comfortable vision of Canada in a peacekeeping/training role.

In recent years, Canada has made large financial investments in the apparatus of war — in a manner it hasn't in a very long time — and as the realities of war are brought home (the losses, the tragedies, the atrocities, the lasting repercussions that come home with the soldiers who were on the front lines), Richler contends that it's crucial we understand our national perspective on war — how we have framed it, how we continue to frame it.

Using recent events to bolster his arguments, including the shooting of American congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the earthquake in Haiti, Richler argues that very possibly the epic narrative of Canada is winding back down to that of the novel as we slowly regain our peacekeeping agenda.

---

"The book offers considerable meat to chew. ... I can't agree with all of Richler's analysis, but I am grateful he has raised some important issues that have not been, but should have been, fully debated in Parliament and in the rest of the country this past decade."

---

"The eloquent writing studded with unusual, but 'stressing' words makes this book a page-turner for those who believe that peace leads to advancement of civilization and prosperity. ... This is an invaluable and erudite book that should be in every public and private library."

---

"Richler must have anticipated polarizing his readers ... One can't agree with everything in it, but with its challenging ideas and provocative theme, it's worth the effort. If this book does not fire a debate, then it will be because we are not up for it."

---

"Anyone looking for an argument about something important would be well served to pick up What We Talk About When We Talk About War, Richler's provocative and ambitious new book."

---

"A hard-hitting polemic aimed at the new 'philistines' laying siege to Lester B. Pearson's legacy of liberal internationalism and peacekeeping ... Richler's War catapults him to the front line of the ongoing Canadian culture war. He brings to the task the unique talents and perceptions of a novelist. It's rare to find in Canadian political discourse precise references to Homer's The Iliad and the Trojan War."

---

"An epic tale in the style of Greek mythology ... I'm glad to have read it. It won't likely resurrect Pearsonian peacekeeping, but it may help us imagine an alternative more suited to the 21st century."

---

"Richler's description and analysis of how and by whom such an epic story has been promulgated in Canada is nothing short of masterful. ... It must be said that this is an important contribution to the ongoing struggles of peace and violence within the hearts of individuals and the political ethos of a nation."

---

"Definitely a book that will get people talking and turn a few heads, I couldn't recommend it more."

---

"Richler argues that the Canadian public has not been all that supportive or interested in the war in Afghanistan. He offers proof in the huge outpouring of sympathy and aid to Haiti. ... a great book for the peace movement to use. ... What We Talk About When We Talk About War lays the ground for what we must be talking about when we talk about peace."

---

"Richler wants to make us think and then talk about what we've learned. There is a wealth of information here that is designed to wake us up to the dangers of accepting war as a part of the Canadian psyche just because the government says it is so. ... He wants us to realize it is too easy to create a false image of the glory of war which leads to acceptance of its inevitability and appropriateness. ... This book is not just criticism, it finishes with some realistic and positive suggestions for establishing an effective peace. It would be a worthwhile read for any concerned Canadian."

---

"It is heartening, then, to find a book such as Noah Richler's that connects the dots between government policies, media attitudes and public ceremonies, and asks several uncomfortable questions about whether our country has permanently abandoned its previous stance in the world as peacekeeper for the more aggressive status of a 'warrior nation,' and if so, what the consequences will be for our civil liberties and freedom of expression."

---

"It's a rare accomplishment to write a book in which even people on the author's side can find something to quibble with on every second page. That outcome, however, is not only inherent in what Richler wrote, but is the chief achievement of this densely textured work. For his argument is as literary as it is political: it's about words. ... As Richler points out, Canadians want an idealistic motive (building schools for girls, say) for war. The result is incoherence about our presence in Afghanistan, and much of the nation simply turning its face away. Six years after the Prime Minister famously promised never to 'cut and run' there, we are about to do precisely that. Time, Richler says, to talk about it honestly."

---

"A scathing attack that won't sit well with veterans ... [Richler] urges readers to cut through the 'epic' talk that surrounds war and see it as it truly is: hell."

---

"What We Talk About When We Talk About War is an eloquent meditation on the nature of modern warfare, and one of the best books I've read about Canada in years — not the surprisingly colourful, forgotten history of, but a biting analysis of who we are in the twenty-first century. and why. ... So we are living in epic times. By identifying a sea change in the Canadian political psyche, Noah Richler identifies the spirit of our times, opens an important discussion. ... Don't leave this one to the critics. Buy the book, sink back, get mad and enjoy."

---

"Richler assembles his evidence from a dizzying array of sources ... [His] opponents should welcome this new, sharply framed chance to make their case over and against his passionate polemic, about what Canada — which has both fought wars and kept the peace — has been, is now, and ought to be in the future."

---

"Provocative and well-researched ... [Richler] has raised some important issues that have not been, and should have been, fully debated in Parliament and in the rest of the country this past decade."

---

"It may be a polemic, but Richler's book is a decidedly literate one ... Richler's argument is backed by a mind-boggling amount of literary references. Using everything from ancient myths to modern literature about war, the author shows how storytelling shapes a nation's identity."

---

"In this thought-provoking and erudite work, Richler explores what he sees as a fundamental shift in Canadian politics, discource and identity ... [Richler] reveals that in the aftermath of Afghanistan, Canadians may once more need to rethink who we are and what we believe."

---

"Richler's points are thought-provoking and perceptive ... well worth considering."

---

"There is a wealth of information here that is designed to wake us up to the dangers of accepting war as a part of the Canadian psyche just because the government says it is so ... Richler's eloquent review of the history of a nation forged in trade, treaty, compromise and peace refutes this presumption."

---

"Noah Richler has raised serious questions about how Canada's elites, including major newspaper columnists, have embraced a more warlike national identity, less peacekeeping, and a more aggressive Canadian military."

---

"A book worthy of joining some of the greatest examinations of human behaviour."

---

"Richler's important and very readable book deserves high praise for showing us in detail how language is constantly misused by this government and its supporters. And Richler may well have enabled us to see, for once ahead of time, how a legitimate love of country can easily be distorted for narrower, partisan ends."

Saisir sa chance

Les Presses de l'Université d'Ottawa | Biographies et mémoires


David Culver, figure clé tant du milieu des affaires que du milieu culturel canadien, raconte son enfance à Montréal, ses études aux universités McGill et Harvard et son service militaire pendant la Deuxième Guerre mondiale. Il décrit surtout sa spectaculaire ascension au sein d’Alcan, jusqu’à accéder au poste de président-directeur général, devenant du coup le chef d’une des plus grandes sociétés multinationales du Canada, dont le siège social était à Montréal. 

Ces mémoires lèvent le voile sur la gestion d’une multinationale bien enracinée en sol québécois. Il propose des conseils pragmatiques sur la manière de cultiver le talent, développer la technologie et surmonter les défis au sein d’une entreprise qui opère aux quatre coins de la planète. 

Au fil de délicieuses anecdotes et d’inoubliables rencontres avec des grands du XXe siècle – dont Margaret Thatcher, Henry Kissinger et Jawaharlal Nehru – David Culver se révèle un imposant leader aux intérêts et aux talents multiples. 

Dans ses mémoires, David Culver médite sur sa passion pour l’architecture – et ses initiatives de protection du patrimoine montréalais par l’entremise de la Maison Alcan – et l’importance de la musique et du sport dans sa vie. Saisir sa chance témoigne de l’optimisme de Culver, qui a de tout temps cru que les choses les plus extraordinaires peuvent arriver lorsqu’on s’y attend le

moins.

---

[La biographie] de David Culver décédé l’an dernier à l’âge de 92 ans et qui fut président de la société Alcan de 1979 à 1989 après une longue carrière où il entra dans l’entreprise en 1947 vaut le détour. (...) On a donc demandé la collaboration d’Alan Freeman un homme à la longue feuille de route journalistique et ancien sous-ministre adjoint aux consultations et communications au ministère des Finances du Canada. Ce dernier a hésité au début craignant des frictions sur le ton à donner à ce récit. Mais les deux hommes se sont entendus à merveille. Au final, une saga captivante au possible.

Sport Policy in Canada

Thibault, LucieHarvey, Jean (Hrsg.) | University of Ottawa Press | Open Access


Sport Policy in Canada provides the first and most comprehensive analysis of the new Canadian Sport Policy adopted in 2012. In light of this new policy, the authors, top scholars in the field, provide detailed accounts of the most salient sport policies and programs, while also discussing issues and challenges facing policy makers.

In Canada and around the world, the last decades have known a sharp increase in state intervention and public funding in pursuit of medals on the international stage and in support of a more active lifestyle. Governments at all levels have made substantial investments in hope of hosting major sporting events to benefit from the economic impact and gain international prestige.The study of sport policies, often neglected in the past, is becoming an increasingly important research topic. Sport Policy in Canada seeks to fill this void by offering the most comprehensive analysis of sport policy since Macintosh, Bedecki, and Franks' Sport Policy in Canada (1987). 

- This book is published in English. 

---

“Sport policy in Canada provides one of the most comprehensive overviews of the field of Canadian sport policy as it has evolved in recent years. It is impressive in both its breadth and scope. The edited collection includes chapters from many leading experts on Canadian sport policy. In addition, it is a timely contribution given the flurry of governmental policies and investments during the last decade. (…) The book is well written and accessible to a number of audiences. Its primary contribution lies in its extensive policy data, which provide the reader with an accurate historical and contemporary portrait of Canadian sport policies. (…) Overall, this book makes a positive contribution to the growing literature on Canadian sport policy. It provides a comprehensive overview of sport policy in Canada and addresses a number of policy issues facing by policy-makers and sport organizations. I recommend this book for both undergraduate and graduate students interested in Canadian sport policy. As a teaching tool, it can be used for courses dealing with sport policy, sport management and the sociology of sport to help students understand the broader issues impacting the governance of sport in Canada. This book will also be of interest to both governmental and non-governmental organizations involved in Canada's sport system.”
