Monastic Economy Across Time: Wealth Management, Patterns, and Trends

Monastic Economy Across Time: Wealth Management, Patterns, and Trends

The book aims at a readership of both economists and historians. Beyond the well-known Weberian thesis concerning the role of Protestantism in the development of capitalism, monastic economies are studied to assess their impact on the religious patterns of economic behavior. Those issues are discussed in the frame of key economic concepts such as rationality, state intervention, networking, agency, and governance.

The Forced Assimilation of Turks in Bulgaria, 1984–1989: Reflections on Its Ideology, History and Consequences

The Forced Assimilation of Turks in Bulgaria, 1984–1989: Reflections on Its Ideology, History and Consequences

In late 1984 the Bulgarian communist regime unleashed a brutal assimilation campaign against the Turkish minority in the country. Euphemistically labeled “Revival Process”, the campaign was ideologically justified by the goal to build a “homogeneous socialist nation” and by the false claim about an allegedly common “ethnic Bulgarian root” of the whole population, including the Turks. Wishing to commemorate the perpetrated ethnic repression and to foster the debate, CAS organized a Round Table dedicated to this fault line in recent Bulgarian history. The discussion was held on 18 January 2019 and gathered nearly 30 scholars. The book collects eleven selected presentations from the conference.

Age(ing) under Socialism. Generations in Family and Society

Age(ing) under Socialism. Generations in Family and Society

Against any chronological logic this books opens with Aging. Its characteristic wisdom ponders on the "life path" of the socialist regime rather than on the lives of the people who populated it. The "young system" sees Aging as abnormal as far as it is a feature of the denied past and it should be left behind; Aging remains segregated and hidden, or at least neglected by communist ideology and "really existing" socialism.
