Conflict, coercion, and the circumstances of politics
Matt Sleat

of ‘consistent realism’, the focus solely on power and coercion, is echoed across numerous pages of the realist literature. Niebuhr, for instance, in his The Children of Light and the Children of Darkness identified the latter as those ‘who know no law beyond their will and interest’ and, furthermore, as ‘evil because they know no law beyond the self ’.64 Morgenthau even went so far as to claim that fascism had failed as a practical philosophy because it mistook individuals to be simply the object of political manipulation rather than moral persons endowed with

replaces ‘Now let it work’, comes less from satisfaction than relief at how easy it was. If Antony is an entertainer-ideologue, a DeMille pedalling bread and circus in the form of his crowd-pleasing epics and underhand political manipulation, the film can be seen finally as an anxious reflection on the industry itself. Once cinema had been identified as a tool to shape public consciousness, it became an

The rise of multi-party politics

The aim of the second part of the book has been to explore Cameronism as political manipulation. Chapters 5 and 6 have done so by examining the dynamics between the coalition partners between 2010 and 2015. Chapter 5 considered how Cameron and the Conservatives outmanoeuvred Clegg, and his Liberal Democrat colleagues, in terms of the negotiations regarding policy and personnel. Chapter 6

the potential for political manipulation in the classroom, as illustrated by the continuing ‘Nazification’ of the curriculum in Germany.129 Although the AEC argued forcefully for direct civic teaching precisely in order to defend democratic values against totalitarian doctrines, the response by teachers to events overseas pointed in the opposite direction, away from classroom ‘politics’ of any kind.130 This also reflected wider fears of politicisation within the movement as the LNU edged closer towards outright opposition to the foreign policy of the National

attack on the city – and this remains highly questionable – important elements within their ranks correctly discerned the suicidal impracticality of such an attempt. Payne’s source inadvertently pointed to this fact when qualifying his assessment of the likelihood of a rising: ‘However, in consequence of the failure in the capital there is a strong party against it.’123 The veracity of the intelligence received by Payne in Limerick that summer is impossible to determine; self serving informers, paranoid loyalists and political manipulation all served to cloud the

we have suggested, the art of political manipulation involves the way in which certain issues or dimensions or politics are rendered visible or invisible, and then acted upon. We have noted, for example, how in our case the aviation industry, with its hunger for more airports and other transport infrastructure, was presented by its advocates as an essential component of economic growth, jobs and prosperity. On the other hand, however, a key part of the anti-expansion campaigns was to negate the claims made by the pro-aviation camp about the benefits of aviation to

Bouhired withdrew from public life, which might be interpreted as a form of resistance to political manipulation. She refused to participate in any more diplomatic visits, ceremonies or interviews.57 She participated in campaigns against the Family Code in the early 1980s, but has only really begun to re-emerge as a public figure since 2009, to criticise the lack of healthcare available to her, to join campaigns in Embodying the nation 159 Algiers against rampant urbanisation and to express her opposition to President Bouteflika running for a fourth term. Embodying

Boussouf also tried to employ his wife’s revolutionary status in campaigning. In an eighteen-page pamphlet entitled Une Caste au service de l’ancien colonisateur (A caste in the service of the former coloniser), published on the symbolic date of 5 July 1987, Boussouf sought to draw on his wife’s revolutionary credentials in a scathing critique of the political manipulation of the War of Independence by the state. Djamila Bouazza featured in a fullpage photograph, which dated from the war, and was described as ‘the first young woman condemned to death by the French

willing tools in this endeavor by reinterpreting traditions, customs, and even history to align with the colonial perspective of African identity. This was especially true in British governed colonies, whose use of indirect rule necessitated the existence of an African administrative structure built largely along identity lines.* The end result was an increasingly fluid and adaptive concept of African identity that was to become a powerful tool of political manipulation and mobilization, first by colonial rulers and later by post-independence leaders.

‘Numbers games’ and ‘holocausts’ at Jasenovac and Bleiburg
David Bruce MacDonald

perpetuated the story of a high number of deaths, continuing the theme that Serbs were victims of are of the worst genocides in the Second World War, with only the Jews and the Russians ahead of them. These high numbers were advanced to prove Ustaša evil during the war. They were also designed to reduce the level of Serbian guilt and complicity. Dušan Bataković gave perhaps the most honest reason why promoting a figure of 700,000 was central to the Serbian cause, writing: [T]he number of Serbian victims has, over numerous decades become the object of political
