Development, culture, and attitudes to America: country-level predictors of anti-Americanism
Sociology. SOC. Высшая школа экономики , 2014. No. WP BRP 35/SOC/2014.
The present study examines survey data from 45 countries by the means of factor and regression analyses in order to understand the nature and causes of anti-Americanism. Empirical results reveal a clear distinction between cultural and political anti-Americanism. The former involves negative attitudes towards American culture and its global spread, whereas the latter is specifically focused on disapproval of the U.S. foreign policies. The two forms of anti-Americanism also differ in their relationship to socioeconomic development. Cultural anti-Americanism is most widespread in countries with average levels of Human Development Index, whereas political anti-Americanism is stronger in the most developed societies. This study finds that Muslim societies are characterized by higher levels of both cultural and political anti-Americanism. On the whole, these findings indicate that anti-Americanism follows consistent country-level patterns and likely has universal roots which should be studied within a comparative framework.

Network Composition, Individual Social Capital And Culture: Comparing Traditional And Post-Modernized Ethnic Groups / National Research University Higher School of Economics. Series WP BRP "Basic research program". 2014. No. 38.

The authors introduce the theme of African futures, and insist on the plural meanings it involves as both a concept and an empirical reality. The relationship between the continent’s futures and its multiple pasts and presents are considered, and the concept of ‘trajectory’ is used to integrate those multiple African realities into an integrated picture ...

Seeking for the Definition of “Culture”: Current Concerns and their Implications. A Comment on Gustav Jahoda’s Article “Critical Reflections on some Recent Definitions of “Culture"”
Integrative Psychological and Behavioral Science 2018 Vol. 52 No. 2 P. 331-340
This article takes as a starting point the critical analysis of attempts to define “culture”, offered by Jahoda in 2012. Basing on the observed proliferation of various, often contradicting, definitions of “culture” (for instance, trying to refer to its both internal and external aspects), Jahoda arrives at the conclusion that attempts to define the concept ...

Perceptions of world politics and support for terrorism among Muslims: Evidence from Muslim countries and Western Europe

Focusing on Muslim populations in five Muslim-majority countries and four Western European countries, we examine the correlates of popular support for terrorist violence.

Perceived Western economic dominance is related to ...

Culture and cognition: The Durkheimian principle of sui generis synthesis vs. cognitive-based models of culture
American Journal of Cultural Sociology 2020 Vol. 8 No. 1 P. 63-89
Cultural sociology must catch up in taking seriously recent initiatives in the sociology of culture and cognition, represented by the works of Omar Lizardo, John Levi Martin, Stephen Vaisey, and others. However, aiming at progress in cultural analysis, these theories are partly driven by an epistemic logic alien to cultural theorizing, making the very concept ...

Globalization is an immanent historical process of not unification but rapprochement of cultures, formation of a global civilization as a “federation” of local civilizations. However, the present historical time is characterized by especially intensive and irreversible globalization. Due to the appearance of postcolonial states and rapid growth of migrations from the “global South” to the ...

Social epistemology is a set of attempts to assign a philosophical meaning to sociological studies of cognitive processes within their social context. These attempts are being made through competition of philosophical interpretations. The choice of interpretation is governed by the desire to bring value orientations of science in line with the challenges from a changing ...

Disillusionment and Anti-Americanism in Russia: From Pro-American to Anti-American Attitudes, 1993–2009
International Studies Quarterly 2018 Vol. 62 No. 3 P. 534-547
In the early 1990s, the Russian public held overwhelmingly favorable attitudes toward the United States; in recent years, attitudes toward the United States have been overwhelmingly unfavorable. Analysts often trace this dramatic change to (1) the emergence of Russian-American conflicts such as those in former Yugoslavia and (2) Russian leaders’ attempts to escape blame for ...
