    Fußball ist in Deutschland die absolute Nummer Eins unter allen Sportarten, und auch weltweit bewegt kein Sport die Menschen mehr. Dem Finale der Fußball-Weltmeisterschaft 2010 in Südafrika fieberten mehr als 30 Millionen Zuschauer vor den Fernsehgeräten entgegen, das weltweit sogar weit über 1 Milliarde Menschen sahen. Dieses Buch porträtiert die europäischen Fußballnationen mit ihren größten Erfolgen bei Welt- und Europameisterschaften, den legendärsten Spielern, den bedeutendsten Trainern und den spektakulärsten Spielen und wirft einen Blick zurück auf die bisherigen EM-Turniere mit allen Spielen, allen Ergebnissen und allen wichtigen Daten und Statistiken. Über kaum ein Thema wird so häufig und ernsthaft diskutiert wie über Fußball oder wie es der deutsche Literatur-Papst Reich-Ranicki ausdrückt: ″Wer den Spaß am Fußball nicht ernst nimmt, der versteht die Macht dieses Spiels nicht.″ •Die europäischen Fußballnationen im Porträt: die größten Erfolge, die legendärsten Spieler, die bedeutendsten Trainer und die spektakulärsten Spiele •Mit informativem Rückblick auf die Europameisterschaften 1960 bis 2008

    Description:

     

    The SAGE Handbook of Propaganda unpacks the ever-present and exciting topic of propaganda to explain how it invades the human psyche, in what ways it does so, and in what contexts. As a beguiling tool of political persuasion in times of war, peace, and uncertainty, propaganda incites people to take, often violent, action, consciously or unconsciously. This pervasive influence is particularly prevalent in world politics and international relations today. In this interdisciplinary Handbook, the editors have gathered together a group of world-class scholars from Europe, America, Asia, and the Middle East, to discuss leadership propaganda, war propaganda, propaganda for peace marketing, propaganda as a psychological tool, terror-enhanced propaganda, and the contemporary topics of internet-mediated propaganda. Unlike previous publications on the subject, this book brings to the forefront current manifestations and processes of propaganda such as Islamist, and Far Right propaganda, from interdisciplinary perspectives. In its four parts, the Handbook offers researchers and academics of propaganda studies, peace and conflict studies, media and communication studies, political science and governance marketing, as well as intelligence and law enforcement communities, a comprehensive overview of the tools and context of the development and evolution of propaganda from the twentieth century to the present: Part One: Concepts, Precepts and Techniques in Propaganda Research Part Two: Methodological Approaches in Propaganda Research Part Three: Tools and Techniques in Counter-Propaganda Research Part Four: Propaganda in Context

    Description:

    The Internet needs no introduction, and its significance today can hardly be exaggerated.  Today, more people are more connected technologically to one another than at any other time in human existence.  For a large share of the world’s people, the Internet, text messaging, and various other forms of digital social media such as Facebook have become thoroughly woven into the routines and rhythms of daily life.  The Internet has transformed how we seek information, communicate, entertain ourselves, find partners, and, increasingly, it shapes our notions of identity and community.  The SAGE Encyclopedia of the Internet addresses the many related topics pertaining to cyberspace, email, the World Wide Web, and social media.  Entries will range from popular topics such as Alibaba and YouTube to important current controversies such as Net neutrality and cyberterrorism.  The goal of the encyclopedia is to provide the most comprehensive collection of authoritative entries on the Internet available, written in a style accessible to academic and non-academic audiences alike.
