Is it possible to reanimate public life in an environment where communities dissolve and disinterest in politics grows every day?
In his work Civilian Society, John Ehrenberg studies the benefits as well as the limitations of the civilian society, and as he summarizes the political and theoretical evolution of the concept, he also defines its place in the academic and public discourse. Ehrenberg investigates what the concept of civilian society, which has reflections in every period from Aristoteles, the philosophers of the Enlightenment, to the Black Lives Matter and Occupy movements, can offer for contemporary political issues. Using a dramatic prose, he establishes how events such as 9/11, global financial crisis, economic inequality, and quickly developing technologies shape our relationship with the contemporary civilian society. Calling for action against growing inequalities, Civilian Society offers a comprehensive look at an essential element of political life.
John Ehrenberg’s Civilian Society is also the first book of the “Civilian Society Series” which Koç University Press has started in collaboration with Third Sector Foundation of Türkiye (TÜSEV) Koç University Civil Society and Charity Research and Application Center (KUSITHAM). The series aims to bring vitality to discussions on civil society by publishing in Turkish valuable books and basic works in the field of civil society written in other languages.
