NR 4 2010Theme: When the City has Triumphed


City and country hand in hand

Life in the city and in the country are becoming blurred. Centre and periphery are a question of our subjective experience. We are becoming regionalised, individualised and globalised in an urbanised setting.

City of degradation

Vilhelm Moberg's and Maria Sandel's depictions of the city are still quite pertinent. The pattern in women's and men's relation to urbanisation repeats itself.

The land of rebirth

Spanish-speaking Latinos are now the largest group of minorities in the US. In America's immigrant society, cultural heterogeneity still lives on in fertile symbiosis with national identity and community.

Two politicians - two worlds

When the Swedish political scene was dominated by Thorbjörn Fälldin and Olof Palme, the major issues of society were always at the centre. As party leaders, they represented completely different perspectives on citizenship, personal responsibility and the role of the State.


Why Pinochet was so hated

When I learnt that the Torquemada of international law, Judge Garzon, was in trouble in his home jurisdiction, Spain, I confess that I did not feel a great deal of sympathy for him, rather the reverse.

Editor's Column

New times require a new media culture

There has been a great deal written lately about how Swedish democracy depends on a vigorous exchange of opinions, that there are various arenas in which representatives of different ideologies, scientific approaches and aesthetic and philosophical schools should have an opportunity to put forward intellectually advanced arguments as a prerequisite for a robust debate on climate change, which in turn is a prerequisite for a well-functioning democracy.
