  • Editor's Introduction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Over the past decades, we have published an array of articles on a wide range of topics in JSR, and each issue invariably presents some new surprises and discoveries. The study of radicalism is inherently transdisciplinary: of course, some articles are strictly historiographic, but more often they include, in addition to history, elements of political science, sociology, religious studies, literaturę, environmentalism, or other fields or disciplines. Sometimes an article focuses on a single figure; sometimes an article makes a larger claim about how we are to understand radicalism more broadly. This issue is no exception to these observations: its purview is transdisciplinary and some articles advance larger ... Read More

  • Construction of Radicalization: Examination of an Important Construct in
           the Explanation of Terrorism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Terrorism by extremist groups has garnered much political, media, and scholarly attention since 9/11.1 Although radicalization may not be a necessary cause of terrorism, it has been found to play a role in terrorist pathways, but what we mean by the term "radicalization" is still somewhat of a mystery, because its definition is ever evolving across different groups and people.2 We have all read media stories in which politicians, criminal justice professionals, and/or scholars refer to "radicalized terrorists," assuming everyone in the United States or globally knows what they mean by "radicalized" people or "radical" terrorism. During the 2016 presidential election, then President Trump often spoke of "radical ... Read More

  • "Radical": The Age of Revolution's Atlantic Context and the Genesis of a
           Political Concept in France

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Radical Party (Parti radical), the oldest extant political party in France, was founded in Paris at its first Congress in Rue Tiquetonne in June 1901. The original factors behind the decision to create the Radical Party were largely concerns about increasing nationalist agitation with the Dreyfus Affair, Ultramontane Catholicism, and the alarm of a monarchist coup d'état that could topple the republican regime. In their declaration, founding presidents Léon Bourgeois and Camille Pelletan indicated their motivation as "to bring together all the sons of French Revolution, whatever their differences are, against the danger of Counterrevolution."1 The Radical Party laid a milestone in the history of the separation ...

  • Religion and Radicalism: The Puritanism in All Revolutions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The role of ideas and their relationship with reality is one of the most vexed questions in social and historical inquiry, if it is even a legitimate distinction at all. Perhaps the most vexed—and becoming more so, it seems—are religious ideas. And today perhaps the most contentious religious ideas of all are radical religious ideas. Religious radicalism poses problems for all scholars, depending on their own beliefs. The approach long adopted by secular scholars—often involving a lingering Marxist pedigree—has the merit of connecting religious ideas to the realities of what people experience in this world, rather than treating them as otherworldly abstractions. This involves reinterpreting religious radicalism in ... Read More

  • A Theoretical Revolutionary: Eric J. Hobsbawm and the "Sociological"
           Trilogy of Deviance

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The historical interest by the British historian Eric J. Hobsbawm about social deviance can certainly be explained from his life experience that later led him to develop the so-called "sociological" trilogy of deviance (Primitive Rebels, Bandits, Revolutionaries) between 1959 and 1972.1 As a Jew and Communist Party of Great Britain activist from his teens in the Europe of totalitarianism and World War II, Hobsbawm was always aware that he was a character belonging to a minority, rather than the English Anglican and monarchist majority.2 His fascination with unconventionality at its most extreme degree, the revolution, is reflected in his diaries, which show us the autobiographical profile of the eighteen-year-old ...

  • Crime and Protest: Squatters, Mayors, and Other Social Bandits in Post-15M
           Spain

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the years following the Great Recession of 2008 and Spain's 15M plaza occupations in 2011, protesters in Spain engaged in increasingly agitational and illegal forms of dissent, challenging the legitimacy of the government itself while working to build popular support among the millions impacted by ongoing economic and political crises. This article draws on ethnographic research conducted in Barcelona and Sevilla, Spain, during 2012 and 2013 to analyze a range of campaigns in which protesters, influenced by local histories of anarchism and autonomous squatting, engaged in coordinated theft and property occupations as modes of direct action or "social banditry" to protest continuing economic crisis, government ...

  • "Apollo Has Saved Us!": Global Ambition and Metapolitical Warfare in
           Alt-Right Religion

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Sovereign is he who is a god—or can be made to appear as one. Apollo stands without rival among the murals adorning the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Royal blue backgrounds offset the ivory skin of the muscled youthful figure and his golden hair, armament, clothing, chariot, and lyre. One mural depicts Apollo astride a quadriga attended by a company of lithe young men, the Hours, aloft in the air around him. Another exhibits Apollo, characteristic lyre in hand, with a ring of maidens, the Muses, dancing around him. Designed by John Singer Sargent, the murals stand as testament to the aesthetic, masculine, and racial commitments of interwar American elites.1Classical masculinities perpetually tempt.2 Our radical ...

  • Communists and Community: Activism in Detroit's Labor Movement,
           1941–1956 by Ryan Pettengill (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Histories of the Communist Party's role in local political struggles are much needed and deserve careful scrutiny. Communists and Community, a study of Detroit-area communists, promises much in this regard. As an account of the Detroit party's work in the 1940s and 1950s, its author draws our attention to the Party's leadership in the struggle against anti-Black racism. For example, Pettengill's creates strong narratives of the struggle over who would occupy the Sojourner Truth housing development, the fight for accountability in the Detroit Police Department for its racist brutality, postwar battles to integrate recreational facilities and federally funded housing projects, the postwar "crusade" for peace, and the ...

  • Martyrs and Tricksters: An Ethnography of the Egyptian Revolution by
           Walter Armbrust (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: January 2021 marked the ten-year anniversary of the events at Tahrir Square in Cairo that, just eighteen days after their utopic beginning, ended the Mubarak regime. And yet when we take stock of Egypt ten years out from 25 January 2011, it is remarkable that the situation is worse: extrajudicial killings have increased, violence has become part of a "permanent crisis" of the state, and the rhetoric of the "War on Terror" is used to keep power consolidated in the state.Walter Armbrust documents Egypt's path from the euphoric first days of the revolution to the state's retrenchment into the neoliberal policies of military rule in his Martyrs and Tricksters: An Ethnography of the Egyptian Revolution, using the ...
