Right time/​right place to be tested, one might say.’1 She embraced the social and cultural environment:  drinking with labour movement leaders at the local pub, listening to folk music and jazz, hearing feminist Germaine Greer

Humanitarianism in a Post-Liberal World Order

one really knows whether the rules will be enforced anymore (to the extent that they were ever really enforced). This means states at best have to hedge their bets (trying to retain the goodwill of both China and the US) and at worst can simply flout those rules with impunity. It is far too early to talk about a renegotiated set of rules, but it is clear that the result of such a new dispensation – the forging of a set of arrangements that both sides can live with and benefit from – will by definition be further from the preferences of the

Haunted presents

Europeans, Muslim Immigrants and the onus of European–Jewish Histories

Amikam Nachmani

Relations between Europe and its Muslim minorities constitute an extensive focus for discussion both within and beyond the Continent. This book reports on the years mainly between 2005 and 2015 and focuses on the exploitation of recent European history when describing relations and the prospects for the nominally 'Christian' majority and Muslim minority. The discourse often references the Jews of Europe as a guiding precedent. The manifold references to the annals of the Jews during the 1930s, the Second World War and the Holocaust, used by both the Muslim minorities and the European 'white' (sic) majority presents an astonishing and instructive perspective. When researching Europe and its Muslim minorities, one is astonished by the alleged discrimination that the topic produces, in particular the expressions embodied in Islamophobia, Europhobia and anti-Semitism. The book focuses on the exemplary European realities surrounding the 'triangular' interactions and relations between the Europeans, Muslims and Jews. Pork soup, also known as 'identity soup', has been used as a protest in France and Belgium against multicultural life in Europe and against the Muslim migrants who allegedly enjoyed government benefits. If the majority on all sides of the triangle were to unite and marginalize the extreme points of the triangle, not by force but by goodwill, reason and patience, then in time the triangle would slowly but surely resolve itself into a circle. The Jews, Christians, Muslims and non-believers of Europe have before them a challenge.

However, by 1840 Ngati Whatua, the major tribe since the mid-eighteenth century, were returning, and Maori from other tribes, particularly from the Waikato to the south, also were settling there. Ngati Whatua invited Governor Hobson, the first governor of the colony, to make Auckland his capital for a complex of reasons – their own security and greater ease of access to European technology and economic-social advantages among them. The first European settlers in Auckland in the 1840s-50s needed Maori support and goodwill

The next section deals with issues of corporate governance and argues that fan equity should be recognised as ‘goodwill’ in clubs’ accounts and that supportershareholder trusts should be formed to solve the problem of misaligned incentives and the associated principal–agent problems between supporter shareholders and commercial investors. The third section deals with issues of vertical integration between football clubs and

I want to be careful to take into account all Irish writers – in other words, both those born in the country and those who arrived later – so that we can move beyond the legitimised readings of Irish multiculturalism to see the view from the back of the bus. The first section examines stories by Roddy Doyle and Claire Keegan that present multiculturalism as an obstacle that can be overcome by the goodwill of Irish people. In the second section, I turn to Emma Donoghue and Cauvery Madhavan, who depict Irish multiculturalism as a complicated

long run parallel to each other. 19 This book shows that while the first – centred on authority, expansionism, and militarised heroism – was dampened by the final implosion of formal Empire in the first half of the 1960s, the second – built on notions of a ‘peace’ empire of improvement and development – found new purchase among a set of middle-class organisations and associations in this period. For these groups the principles of international goodwill offered a sense of stabilising continuity that made them resistant to pessimistic readings of the 1960s implosion

Racing maintained its own subcultural features. Codes of behaviour, etiquette, rituals and language were held partly in common, and were partly more specific to the area of the course they inhabited, but all in an atmosphere of solidarity, sociability and generally relaxed goodwill. Courses attracted higher numbers of women than most other sports and codes of dress and language were in part specific to the

National freedom meant an attack on workers, on trade unions and on the civil service.203 The opportunity had passed. The Provisional Government squandered the goodwill of its civil service and as 1923 dawned and the Irish Free State came into office the attitude of the civil service was one of suspicion and defensiveness. For many civil servants the State was failing to embody the bright ideals and generous ambitions of

Political and contemporary contexts of the Shows

Tracey Hill

Aries, Middleton had referred to James, albeit in parentheses, as ‘that ioy of honest hearts’ and as the king ‘that Vnites Kingdomes [and] who encloses / All in the Armes of Loue’ (sigs B2v–B3r). A rather more contingent form of goodwill towards the royal family and state policy is in evidence in 1623. As we have seen in relation to Himatia-Poleos, Chruso-thriambos and Metropolis coronata, Munday’s texts can also be seen to have contemporary political dimensions. However, if he did comment on the underlying moment of the 1618 Show – the execution of Ralegh taking
