Kazakhstan's Assassinated Democracy by Yerzhan Dosmukhamedov Summary

Kazakhstan's Assassinated Democracy describes how the highest levels of government in Kazakhstan are attempting to suppress the country's genuine democratization, particularly through the case of a political party, Atameken. It is based on extensive interviews with Dr. Yerzhan K. Dosmukhamedov, Chairman of the Atameken Party. These interviews and articles -- most of which were originally published in Kazakh or Russian -- have created quite a public stir in Kazakhstan. Dr. Dosmukhamedov analyses problems in building a civic society in the country, key political events, major issues of domestic and foreign policy, and the objective and subjective influences affecting the deep historical process currently underway in the country -- nothing less than the transformation of relationships between the state and the person. Kazakhstan's Assassinated Democracy is directed to a broad range of readers, and is intended for anyone interested in the future of Kazakhstan, the development of political parties, and the forces holding back democracy in that country. a(c)

Democracy by Charles Tilly Summary

Democracy identifies the general processes causing democratization and de-democratization at a national level across the world over the last few hundred years. It singles out integration of trust networks into public politics, insulation of public politics from categorical inequality, and suppression of autonomous coercive power centres as crucial processes. Through analytic narratives and comparisons of multiple regimes, mostly since World War II, this book makes the case for recasting current theories of democracy, democratization and de-democratization.

Democracy at the Crossroads by Craig S. Barnes Summary

Some were warriors. Some were lawyers, some historians, some moved by an inner passion so great that they appeared to move against kingly power like moths to the flame, risking, and often giving, their lives. They wrote, cajoled, and sometimes cried out for all to hear that the law is above the king.This fascinating treatise examines how Western ideals of democracy have evolved and emerged through the ages and across continents. Craig S. Barnes shares the inspiring stories of a diverse group of men and women (whether they be leaders, poets, or peasants) who pioneered due process, habeas corpus, and the balance of powers. Exploring the premise that "democracy is not a given in social evolution," Barnes contrasts the heroic figures of history to those in recent administrations who he argues have ignored the precious nature of our inheritance and have placed democracy at risk. Democracy at the Crossroads is a stirring reminder of the fragility of our rule of law and the need for vigilant protection of our hard-won liberties.Craig S. Barnes began his career as a public interest lawyer dealing with women's rights and the environment. He was also active in politics and civil rights, running for Congress in Denver as a peace candidate in 1970. He is the author of Growing Up True and In Search of the Lost Feminine.

Russia, America and the Islamic World by Mike Bowker Summary

During the Soviet period, Islam was largely ignored in Moscow and viewed as a bourgeois phenomenon which would fade over time. Nowadays, from the ongoing conflict in Chechnya to recent upheavals in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, Islamic militancy has become a major security threat to Russia. Mike Bowker examines the newly emerging relationship between Russia and the United States and their struggle against the common threat of international terrorism. He looks at the difficulties of such a relationship by analyzing the lingering mutual suspicion, differing views on the nature of the global terrorist threat and how each side has continued to pursue their own national interests. Students and scholars of international relations and Russian foreign policy will find this book particularly useful.

The Politics of Security in Modern Russia by Mark Galeotti Summary

The Putin era saw a striking 'securitization' of politics, something that he has bequeathed to his chosen successor, Dmitry Medvedev. The omens from the early days of the Medvedev presidency have been mixed, marked both by less confrontational rhetoric towards the West and by war with Georgia and continued re-armament. Has the Medvedev generation learned the lessons not just from the Soviet era but also from the Yeltsin and Putin presidencies, or will security remain the foundation of Russian foreign and domestic policy? Fully up-to-date to reflect the evolving Medvedev presidency, the 2008 Georgian war and the impact of the economic downturn, this volume is a much needed objective and balanced examination of the ways in which security has played and continues to play a central role in contemporary Russian politics. The combination of original scholarship with extensive empirical research makes this volume an invaluable resource for all students and researchers of Russian politics and security affairs.

Ils vécurent heureux, eurent beaucoup d'enfants et puis... by Michael CUNNINGHAM Summary

Au carrefour de la fable et de la nouvelle contemporaine, dix petits contes cruels, accompagnés de superbes illustrations de l'artiste Yuko Shimizu, revisités avec un soupçon de cynisme et une bonne dose d'humour noir par la prose douce-amère et l'acuité psychologique de Michael Cunningham. Il était une fois une jolie princesse et un prince, doté d'un je-ne-sais-quoi de féminin. Elle est en danger, il vole à son secours. Ils vivent heureux, ont beaucoup d'enfants, et puis... les années passent. La princesse regarde son beau château, ses beaux enfants, quelle est cette mélancolie qui la tenaille ? Ce manque qu'elle ne parvient à formuler ? Cette nostalgie d'un moment perdu qu'elle rejoue sans fin dans sa tête : ce moment où, juste avant que ses lèvres ne se posent sur celles de la grenouille, juste avant que la monstrueuse créature ne se transforme en prince charmant, tout était encore possible... La Belle qui éprouve des regrets d'avoir épousé la Bête ; Jack, celui du haricot magique, qui se la joue bling-bling et flambe avec les œufs d'or de la poule ; la sorcière d'Hansel et Gretel qui se retrouve vieille et seule dans sa grande maison de pain d'épices désespérément vide... Neuf contes revus et parfois corrigés par Michael Cunningham, pour nous démontrer que si parfois tout est bien qui finit bien, bien souvent hélas, même le plus beau des contes peut avoir une fin cruelle.

Stalin's Curse by Robert Gellately Summary

The Second World War almost destroyed Stalin's Soviet Union. But victory over Nazi Germany provided the dictator with his great opportunity: to expand Soviet power way beyond the borders of the Soviet state. Well before the shooting stopped in 1945, the Soviet leader methodically set about the unprecedented task of creating a Red Empire that would soon stretch into the heart of Europe and Asia, displaying a supreme realism and ruthlessness that Machiavelli would surely have envied. By the time of his death in 1953, his new imperium was firmly in place, defining the contours of a Cold War world that was seemingly permanent and indestructible - and would last until the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989. But what were Stalin's motives in this spectacular power grab? Was he no more than a latter-day Russian tsar, for whom Communist ideology was little more than a smoke-screen? Or was he simply a psychopathic killer? In Stalin's Curse, best-selling historian Robert Gellately firmly rejects both these simplifications of the man and his motives. Using a wealth of previously unavailable documentation, Gellately shows instead how Stalin's crimes are more accurately understood as the deeds of a ruthless and life-long Leninist revolutionary. Far from being a latter day 'Red Tsar' intent simply upon imperial expansion for its own sake, Stalin was in fact deeply inspired by the rhetoric of the Russian revolution and what Lenin had accomplished during the Great War. As Gellately convincingly shows, Stalin remained throughout these years steadfastly committed to a 'boundless faith' in Communism - and saw the Second World War as his chance to take up once again the old revolutionary mission to carry the Red Flag to the world.

Using his first-hand observations and insights from international poets, he argues for courageous action to support non-violence in every aspect of public and private life for the survival of people, animals and the planet.

L'imposture climatique by Dominique MONTVALLON (DE),Claude ALLEGRE Summary

Après la crise bancaire qui a ébranlé le monde et continue de le secouer, une véritable panique climatique a failli en amplifier les effets. Heureusement, à Copenhague, grâce aux pays du Sud soutenus par Barack Obama, le bon sens, au final, l'a emporté. Jusqu'à quand ? Sous la forme d'un dialogue vif et approfondi, ce livre raconte dans les détails comment une véritable conspiration mélangeant science et politique a pu imposer le mythe du réchauffement climatique – théorie scientifique plus que fragile – à tant d'hommes politiques comme aux médias. Il raconte par le menu comment les ambitions scientifiques et politiques de quelques-uns ont pu s'appuyer sur un affairisme très actif, une technostructure de l'ONU en recherche de justification et un mysticisme pour alimenter la peur et la culpabilité, ferments assurés de déclin. Ce livre-choc documenté, précis et implacable donne, sans langue de bois, les clés de ce qui apparaîtra demain comme le premier scandale planétaire. Avec, en toile de fond, le dévoiement de la très belle idée d'écologie.
