parliamentarization? Overall, the story related here also demonstrates not only the strength of West Germany’s parliamentary democracy, but of parliamentary democracy in general. After all, even anti-party parties are “continuously subject to the pressures of the

further strength of the study is its author’s willingness to draw on and create links between key works of bande dessinée criticism in French and English (e.g., Thierry Groensteen and Ann Miller). Although there is also work of political

Glashan’s Genius is only available in cramped, out-of-print editions. 5 Indeed, the recovery of comics history has been curtailed by the relative strength of particular markets: we are, after all, talking about cultural ephemera that do not always

Depicting the Medieval Reconquista in Modern Spanish Graphic Novels

Iain A. MacInnes

reinforces the strength of the medieval Christian knight, but again it may be inspired by battles elsewhere. 44 Contemporary sources of Las Navas de Tolosa say little to corroborate the image and the trope of the knightly ‘hedgehog’, which may more

This article examines the conceptual structure of the Social City Program as it has been formulated in legislation and applied in practice. It raises serious questions as to the actual impact of the program as formulated, and suggests that conceptual clarity may help both to expose its flaws and to propose alternate positive potentials. The program has a complex intellectual underlay, and clarity in the concepts used can avoid some potential dangers in its implementation. More specifically, integration is not the opposite of exclusion, and inclusion is not the same as reducing poverty. Spatial clustering can either support or weaken solidarity. Enclaves and ghettos are not the same thing, although both reflect a clustering of population groups. Finally, emphasizing "social capital" can be a way of highlighting the strength of the oppressed or blaming them for their own oppression-and these distinctions are loaded with consequences for policy.
