Beyond Cairo examines US diplomacy in the years following this speech and explores Washington's lagging engagement with the Muslim world. This book tackles the problems with public diplomacy as the US has been practicing it and provides a roadmap for the US to re-engage the Muslim world over the coming years.

Scholarship on the psychology of peace has been accumulating for decades. The approach employed has been predominantly centered on addressing and preventing conflict and violence and less on the conditions associated with promoting peace. Concerns around nuclear annihilation, enemy images, discrimination, denial of basic human needs, terrorism and torture have been the focal points of most research. The Psychological Components of a Sustainable Peace moves beyond a prevention-orientation to the study of the conditions for increasing the probabilities for sustainable, cooperative peace. Such a view combines preventative scholarship with a promotive-orientation to the study of peaceful situations and societies. The contributors to this volume examine the components of various psychological theories that contribute to the promotion of a harmonious, sustainable peace. Underlying this orientation is the belief that promoting the ideas and actions which can lead to a sustainable, harmonious peace will not only contribute to the prevention of war, but will also lead to more positive, constructive relations among people and nations and to a more sustainable planet. The Psychological Components of a Sustainable Peace is valuable and stimulating reading for researchers in peace psychology, political psychology, and conflict resolution as well as others who are interested in developing a sustainable, harmonious world.

In an original synthesis of communication theory and their own research and experience as intervention agents, the authors of Moral Conflict describe a dialectical tension between the expression and suppression of conflict that can be transcended in ways that lead to personal growth and productive patterns of social action. Several projects are described as practical examples of these ways of working.

Organisationsbildung setzt eine Erkennungsregel voraus, die erlaubt festzustellen, welche Handlungen und unter welchen Aspekten sie als Entscheidungen der Organisation zu gelten haben. Diese Erkenntnisregel ist zunächst und vor allem eine Mitgliedschaftsregel. Sie legt fest, wer als Mitglied des Systems angesehen wird und in welchen Rollen diese Mitgliedschaft ausgeübt werden kann. Durch Personalauswahl und Rollendefinition wird die Organisation gegen das sie umgebende sonstige Soziale abgegrenzt und ausdifferenziert. 35 Jahre nach der erstmaligen Veröffentlichung von "Funktionen und Folgen formaler Organisation" schließt "Organisation und Entscheidung" das Gesamtwerk Niklas Luhmanns mit einem weiteren Grundlagenwerk zur soziologischen Theorie formaler Organisationen ab.
