The Manifesto of the Communist Party was drafted as its party program by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels in Brussels at the order of the second congress of the League of Communists (December 2-8, 1847) The Manifesto marked the end of a year-long discussion within the League of the Just about the objectives and methods of proletarian emancipation and implied the conclusion of its transformation into the League of Communists. In Marxist literature this publication, which marked a milestone in the theoretical evolution of Marx and Engels and reflected the crucial principles of their world view in a relatively self-contained and complete form, is held to be the birth certificate of scientific socialism, which was fundamentally distinct from utopian socialism. Brought into its final version by Marx, it undoubtedly was the most brilliant and widely read writing of Marx and Engels; thanks to its down-to-earth analysis of society with its concise and cogent portrayal of a humanizing-liberating perspective for workers and the urgent demands for a revolutionary transformation of society. It was the most effective and most widely read publication of the modern working-class movement.

Standard & Poor's (a ratings agency) decision to downgrade the credit rating of the US Federal Government was historical, and raised questions not only about the fiscal position of the United States, but the credibility of Standard & Poor's itself. President Obama's defiant response to the downgrade stated that America would 'always be a AAA nation'. One question was left begging by both sides: Who is right? Standard & Poor's, or the President? This essay answers that question.

In the state of nature, natural law governs behavior, and each person has license to execute that law against someone who wrongs them by infringing on their rights. People take what they need from the earth, but hoard just enough to cover their needs. Eventually, people begin to trade their excess goods with each other, until they develop a common currency for barter, or money.

Contribuição à Crítica da Economia Política (1859) foi o livro de Marx anterior a O Capital (1867). Marx escreveu no prefácio da primeira edição de O Capital que a longa pausa foi devida a uma longa enfermidade. O livro trouxe apenas dois capítulos: A mercadoria e A moeda. O plano inicial era fazer uma série: os livros seguintes abordariam o capital, propriedade fundiária, trabalho assalariado, Estado, comércio exterior e mercado mundial. Anos depois essa série foi abandonada, foi procurada uma outra editora e assim nasceu a nova série O Capital de 4 livros (sendo o último as Teorias da Mais-Valia) que incorporou os temas do plano inicial e colocou Crítica da Economia Política como subtítulo.

Footnotes, bibliography. In 1831, the then twenty-seven year old Alexis de Tocqueville, was sent with Gustave de Beaumont to America by the French Government to study and make a report on the American prison system. Over a period of nine months the two traveled all over America making notes not only on the prison systems but on all aspects of American society and government.

The global food system works only for the few – for most of us it is broken. It leaves the billions who consume food lacking sufficient power and knowledge about what they buy and eat, and the majority of small food producers dis-empowered and unable to fulfil their productive potential. The failure of the system flows from failures of government – failures to regulate, to correct, to protect, to resist, to invest – which mean that companies, interest groups, and elites are able to plunder resources and to redirect flows of finance, knowledge, and food.  Growing a Better Future describes a new age of growing crisis: food price spikes and oil price hikes, devastating weather events, financial meltdowns, and global contagion. It shows how the food system is at once a driver of this fragility and highly vulnerable to it, and why in the twenty-first century it leaves 925 million people hungry. Growing a Better Future supports a new campaign with a simple message: another future is possible and we can build it together. Over the coming years, decisive action around the world could enable hundreds of millions more people to feed their families and prevent catastrophic climate change from destroying their (and our) futures.  In this new enhanced edition, Oxfam adds video, papers and research which develop and update the main themes of the report: land, and the growing scandal surrounding the new wave of investments (‘land grabs’); how climate change is related to food security and the East African food crisis; and how people living in poverty around the world have coped with food price crises. There are also extended case studies from Bolivia, Brazil, Guatemala, India, Malawi, and Nepal, and an extended and updated bibliography and resources list.

Every day for the next twenty years, 10,000 baby boomers will retire. Paying for the boomers retirement will cost an additional 10% of GDP, the equivalent our current spending on the military, public education, and all colleges and universities. This is an enormous sum, but most boomers have not saved enough to support themselves. Instead they are depending on governments that are in even worse financial shape. The Retirement Crisis details how bad the problem is, and how we may resolve it.

Este trabalho tem por objetivo confirmar a existência de dois paradigmas na ciência política contemporânea, chamados respectivamente de paradigma dominante, relacionado ao modelo pluralista e liberal de organização estatal, e de paradigma alternativo, relacionado ao modelo marxista de organização estatal. Além disso, mostraremos como, dentro de cada um desses paradigmas, as teorias políticas contemporâneas analisam os conceitos de estado e de democracia. Pretendemos mostrar também que as teorias políticas do paradigma dominante não estudam o estado como ator político, estudando, em seu lugar, o regime democrático estabelecido nos países que passaram por processos de redemocratização nas décadas de 1980 e 1990, com ênfase principal nos países da América Latina e do Leste Europeu. Artigos acadêmicos publicados em revistas especializadas compõem a principal fonte a ser utilizada nesta pesquisa. Além desses artigos, trabalharemos também com as teorias políticas que deram origem aos dois paradigmas da atualidade. Na conclusão do trabalho pretendemos responder à pergunta lançada inicialmente: pode o paradigma alternativo contribuir para o estudo dos processos de redemocratização das regiões acima mencionadas? Se sim, quais as principais diferenças entre o paradigma dominante e o paradigma alternativo no que diz respeito a esses processos?

En 1989, la ciudad de Porto Alegre creó el mecanismo del presupuesto participativo. Veinte años después, la experiencia se ha desarrollado por todo el mundo. En Europa, la primera data de 1994, pero no sería hasta la entrada de este nuevo siglo que la experiencia se difunde globalmente en el viejo continente. Como si hubieran vuelto las carabelas que partieron de la costa española 500 años antes, cargadas, esta vez, de reformas políticas. Este libro pretende analizar ese viaje y su expansión por el viejo continente. El objetivo es dar cuenta de cómo se ha generalizado este proceso y mostrar la diversidad de metodologías sobre las que se ha desarrollado. ¿Qué pasa con esa experiencia en otro continente, con una realidad muy diferente y una larga tradición democrática? El libro se basa en una investigación colectiva a escala europea y ofrece un cuadro en movimiento de las diferentes experiencias existentes, diferenciando varios modelos de participación, así como las posibles tendencias de su evolución. ¿Puede el presupuesto participativo ayudar a poner los servicios públicos al servicio del público? ¿Puede trasformar la democracia? ¿Puede contribuir a alcanzar una sociedad más justa?

Beyond the political typology it embodies, Syria also provides the best case study of what has happened in the Arab world, and thus in the Middle East, during the last half-century. When it gained independence, Syria was a democratic country with a seemingly bright future. Blessed with fertile land and ample resources, Syria boasted good relations with the West as well as an energetic, entrepreneurial middle class. Yet a combination of radical intellectuals, militant ideologies, and ambitiously politicized military officers pushed Syria down a different path which has led to turmoil and disaster.

Vendedor: Luis DALLANEGRA PEDRAZA

Tener una visión clara de las posibilidades de los países “periféricos” en un sistema, como el mundial, en el que el poder es la variable rectora de su funcionamiento y del orden, resulta complejo, particularmente porque las teorías de las relaciones internacionales han sido elaboradas, mayoritariamente, en los países centrales , donde el poder no es un “elemento escaso” , a la vez que estas teorías consideran sólo al “tope” del sistema , dejando de lado o subordinando a los países que carecen de poder . Estos, supliendo esa carencia, usan los principios y el derecho internacional en su política exterior. Una teoría en la que se muestra sólo la visión desde el poder no es tal, ya que no alcanza a abstraer la otra parte de la perspectiva del sistema, la que abarca a la gran mayoría de sus miembros, los que carecen de poder y están subordinados con pocas o nulas posibilidades. El autor muestra una visión totalizadora de las relaciones internacionales, que contempla no sólo la óptica desde el “poder” , sino también desde la carencia del mismo , las características y el funcionamiento del sistema mundial, las posibilidades que tienen sus miembros de actuar en función de sus propios intereses y la perspectiva desde la que se ubica, para comprender el funcionamiento del sistema. Destaca la confusión que hay entre cosmovisión y teoría . Es común hablar del “realismo” como una teoría perimida que ya ha sido superada por otras corrientes, particularmente la sistémica cuando, en sí, se trata de una cosmovisión , no de una teoría. El enfoque propuesto se basa en la cosmovisión realista , en forma totalizadora , contemplando la incidencia del “poder” como una variable central en las características y el funcionamiento del sistema mundial, a la vez que necesaria para la elaboración e implementación de una política exterior . Para ello el autor recurre al realismo-sistémico-estructural , mostrado como una “cosmovisión” que conduce al desarrollo de una teoría “totalizadora”, en la que el sistema es global y no sólo su “tope”; promoviendo en los países periféricos la modificación de sus conductas principistas, no abandonando los principios, sino respaldándolos con la construcción de poder .

The task of explaining the causes of the wealth of the people in a society is a long and complex subject for a single e-book. To facilitate the explanation and the delivery of the material, an e-book will be published in each set of topics. The following are the planned titles of the book series: Your Wealth The first book looks at the time savings gained by a single person increasing his physical and mind assets in an island. The Wealth of Your Neighbor The second book is about the agreements that two people have to make to be in a path to increase their respective wealth. The Wealth of the Market The third book explains the opportunities offered by a free market to produce wealth for the people that participate in it. This book explains the wealth production results when there is a market that brings the competitive advantage of every individual to the table. The Wealth of the Business Enterprise The fourth book is about the function of the business enterprise to produce wealth for its customers, its owners, and its employees. The Wealth of the State The fifth book discusses what happens when we remove the assumption that everybody is going to behave correctly. The book explores the historical formation of the state and the implications for the production of wealth. The Wealth of Social Capital The sixth book is the core of the series. Social Capital is defined as the ability of a society to learn and agree on the rules that are necessary for the production of wealth. This is the key for the wealth of the people in society. This is the ingredient that is a prerequisite for physical and human capital formation and is the ingredient missing in many countries that are not able to achieve wealth. The Wealth of Physical Capital The seventh book is about the wealth of the physical capital that humanity has today. It should make you grateful that you live in this age and not five hundred or five thousand years ago. The Wealth of Human Capital The eighth book is about the wealth of the human capital that humanity has today. A great deal of the human capital available is taken for granted and it is wasted so it will be good to review it. The Wealth of a Nation The ninth book takes us to Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations. A nation is an entity that comprises a geographical area with a legal setting. It is governed by a state that is the keeper of the social contract. The state maintains the rules of a nation’s social capital and thus determines the capital structure of the nation and its citizens and in this way the state determines the income of its citizens. The Wealth of the Planet Earth The tenth book is about our planet. It introduces the concept of Natural Capital. What we think as natural resources is actually the capitalization of life that has been happening for millions of years. Unfortunately, many of the actions that we do in the pursuit of wealth production reduce the planet’s natural capital. If the planet was treated as a capital asset, it would be maintained correctly and it would not be consumed risking a drop of the whole world to a lower income level. The Wealth of the Human Spirit The eleventh book will be an inquiry about what of all these economic principles might mean in the spiritual world. End of the Series

Le principe anarchiste de Kropotkine, comme L’esprit de révolte, c’est un des plus beaux textes du prince Russe. C’est un texte tardif, où domine un indéniable lyrisme. Kropotkine ne fait pas dans la théorie, il nous révèle sa pensée : le principe anarchiste, c’est le principe de liberté. En cela, l’anarchisme s’inscrit radicalement à l’écart des autres mouvements politiques. Les manuels d’histoire filtrés par les ministères de l’éducation nationale ne le peignent pas sous la meilleure lumière. Normal, le principe de liberté n’est accessible que par la remise en question de l’oppression institutionnalisée, c’est à dire de l’Etat.

At 60 manuscript pages and 100 sources, Target Iran is of the new genre of eBooks on critical political subjects written for the modern reader who requires reliable background information to reach an informed opinion, but whose time is too limited to go to the library or conduct independent research.A history of Iran and its conflict with the United States and Israel over its uranium enrichment program, a discussion of the likelihood of war between the parties and a proposal for a comprehensive nuclear weapons policy for all nations.Iran, the last remnant of the ancient Persian Empire, is presently threatened by the greatest superpower in history - the United States of America.Rather than attack, or allow Israel to attack, the United States should immediately reestablish diplomatic relations with Iran, negotiate unconditionally and ensure the protection of Iran from armed attack by Israel or any other nation.The U.S. should adopt a comprehensive policy that seeks to avoid the expansion of nuclear weapons to Iran and all other nations. The ultimate goal of the policy should be the elimination of all nuclear weapons by every nation, including Israel, within ten years.Resolution of the existing crisis requires a clear understanding of the history of the Iranian people and the steps and missteps that have led to the crisis.

the inability for capital, and therefore the state, to pay for the costs of producing a well educated workforce or to guarantee that investment in education will result in a more vigorous economy and increased living standards for those with qualifications. This breakdown, and the dogmatism of free market economics which seeks to alleviate it, has seen the imposition of a business rationale onto what previously had been regarded as the provision of a public service, sometimes even a public good in the UK and across Europe. From the investment of endowment funds on the market, to the conversion of students into (badly ripped off) consumers, to the no-frills fixed-term contracts being doled out to staff, to the speculative purchase of the future IP generated by scientific and technical departments, to the intended exchangeability of all qualifications under the Bologna Process, education is being ever more deeply determined by free market principles. With the ground changing this fast under staff and students' feet, the ability for collective action to fight the savage rounds of cuts has itself suffered as a result of a generalised precarity and fragmentation. Mute's interview with two organisers of last summer's strike at Tower Hamlets College reminds us that attacks on education workers and students are not soley motivated by financial concerns, but also comprise an attack on our working culture (our rights, values and expectations more generally). Despite the hostile conditions, we have nevertheless seen a persistent and recently growing wave of strikes, actions and occupations, both wildcat and union co-ordinated, breaking out around the world. Sixth formers, students, staff and those with a less personal stake in education are uniting in a new plane of struggle. However, a number of the reports included here stress the growing tension between the particularity of the cuts to the education sector and the more general 'public sector fight back' that is emerging. Despite the need to recognise the distinctions within the education sector itself (between academic staff and students on one hand, and non-academic staff on the other) there is a distinct danger of forming a coalition solely amongst students and workers who used to be students. The student occupation at Middlesex University over the summer of 2010, as well as the more recent spate of occupations and sit-ins in universities, schools, art galleries and other public spaces across Britain, have nevertheless ushered in a moment full of potential. Not only have they sought to be inclusive, but they have also shown the growing irrelevance of student leaders and old style mass-organising. Heidi Liane Hasbrouck's piece on the NUS's denunciation of the Millbank riot highlights this moment of self-realisation. There is a widening recognition of a need to self-organise and continually push at the borders of the possible. This is not '68 redux; and a better thing for it. All of this begs the question, will this fight-back be enough to save any residual quality and equality within education and its institutions? Mute began compiling a mini-dossier of reports, questionnaires and analyses on the crisis and struggles within education in May 2010, as it was unfolding in the UK and beyond. Since the magnificent occupation of the Tory headquarters at Millbank on 9 November - which seemed to jolt people out of their despair or slumbers - many more reports on education struggles have been published in Mute. Here we present you with a selection of some of the most urgent.

Europe's better times were meant to be ahead of it. Not so long ago, the European dream was believed to have provided the best vision of the future; Europe was going to run the twenty-first century, having created an entirely new species of human organization, the likes of which the world has never seen. If the West – and most of the world – was American in the twentieth century, the twenty-first century was going to be European. Europe was going to lead the world by example; do it gently. "Soft power Europe" would rule without anyone noticing but everyone benefiting. All these assumptions proved hubristic: Europe's turn of fortune is humbling, humiliating and, perhaps, irreversible.

A criação da Organização Mundial do Comércio, em 1995, em substituição ao GATT, representou um arranjo institucional elaborado, com um conjunto de regras sofisticado, amplo e detalhado para disciplinar o comércio de bens e serviços. Essa regulamentação vai hoje muito além das medidas de fronteira, afetando políticas que, até há alguns anos, eram consideradas como parte do domínio reservado dos Estados. O sistema multilateral de comércio é um dos pilares da economia internacional. Ele enfrenta, no entanto, desafios importantes, como a persistência do protecionismo e o risco de fragmentação decorrente da proliferação dos acordos regionais de comércio.

Essa terceira fase republicana da Alemanha apresenta distintivos de monta em relação à “República de Bonn”: a fruição da plena soberania jurídica internacional, à luz das disposições do Tratado 2+4; a reassunção da condição de Estado nacional, com a superação da divisão intra-alemã; translado da capital para Berlim, vergando o centro gravitacional do país (e da Europa) para leste; e o estágio avançado da integração regional, com a conformação de uma zona monetária comum onde Berlim passou a exercer liderança econômica inconteste.

With this book the Western Shugden Society wishes that individual people around the world will use their influence to help millions of Buddhist practitioners who are presently suffering religious persecution instigated by the Dalai Lama of Tibet. For this reason we are making the e-book available at a complimentary price. We ask you to read this book and then ask the Dalai Lama to stop this persecution. For his own personal political ends the Dalai Lama is persecuting Buddhist people who practise the Buddhist Deity Dorje Shugden. Most people around the world believe that the Dalai Lama is a compassionate man of peace, but the hidden reality is that, because of the high regard in which the ancient title is held, the Dalai Lama is actually now a dictator who is systematically causing immense suffering to millions of innocent people throughout the world. His actions banning the practice of Dorje Shugden and persecuting practitioners blatantly contravene the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights on several counts. The book A Great Deception, published by the Western Shugden Society, is a revelation of the Dalai Lama’s great deceit. The purpose of the book is fourfold: To liberate from this persecution the millions of innocent Buddhist practitioners of the Deity Dorje Shugden, and their families; To restore peace and harmony between Shugden and non-Shugden practitioners within Buddhist communities world-wide; To re-establish the common spiritual activities of all Shugden and non-Shugden practitioners; and to free Buddhism from political pollution. May we encourage you to come to understand the real nature of the Dalai Lama of Tibet by reading this book A Great Deception. We believe that with this understanding you will be able to support the innocent people presently experiencing his persecution.

Criada ao final da Segunda Guerra Mundial, a Organização das Nações Unidas desempenha um papel fundamental na política mundial contemporânea. Um de seus órgãos principais, ao Conselho de Segurança cabe a responsabilidade primária na manutenção da paz e da segurança internacionais. Além da faculdade de impor sanções mandatórias, o Conselho é, ainda hoje, a única instância internacional capaz de autorizar o uso legítimo da força em caso de ameaças á paz, ruptura da paz e atos de agressão, conforme o Capítulo VII da Carta da ONU. Este livro expõe, de forma sintética, os grandes desafios e dilemas em torno da ação do Conselho, na teoria e na prática. Mais do que nunca, é preciso conhecer e entender como o órgão funciona e quais são seus limites. Refletir sobre seus erros e acertos diante de situações de conflito constitui tarefa essencial para todos aqueles que anseiam por um multilateralismo fortalecido e uma paz sustentável e mais justa, que valorize o diálogo, a prevenção e a diplomacia na solução de controvérsias internacionais.

Noam Chomsky is both the whipping post of the radical conspiracy community and the voice of reason for the intellectual left. The conspiracy community refers to Chomsky as "a gatekeeper" and a lot of people treat him like a government shill instead of the government critic he is. But at the same time, Noam began his career on the Lower East Side, as a die-hard Marxist, and the truth of the matter is that wherever you find Marxism in America, you'll find spooks and skull & bones. Even today after decades of studies, I still can't figure the spooks from the true believers. Like John Reed. He was a child of the American oligarchy who played a huge roll in spreading Marxism. Was he a spook? While a graduate student, I wrote my first critique of Chomsky's revolutionary theories in linguistics.

Si el mundo en el siglo XX se orientó en el sentido del establecimiento, el mantenimiento y el restablecimiento del orden y generó instituciones gubernamentales, como la ONU, para este propósito, dejando en un segundo plano a la justicia internacional ; el gran desafío del mundo del siglo XXI , dado fundamentalmente por la sociedad civil mundial , es llevar a cabo una tarea de reformulación del “pacto social”, orientado a la búsqueda de una compatibilización entre las demandas de justicia con el orden establecido. Esta es la continuación y profundización de la obra de Luis DALLANEGRA PEDRAZA : “El Orden Mundial del siglo XXI”, 1998, en la que busca desarrollar una Teoría de las Relaciones Internacionales desde la perspectiva de los países que no tienen poder , que son más de los dos tercios de los Estados del planeta. Los grandes cambios mundiales muestran que el Orden sigue la “dirección” del poder, concentrado en pocos. El sistema mundial opera como un “paralelogramo de fuerzas” , en el que los “vectores direccionadores” pueden estar compuestos por una fuerza, dos o varias, mientras que otras fuerzas sólo tienen capacidad de incidir, pero no de direccionar, y la gran mayoría, es “direccionada”, con una mínima capacidad de resistencia - aunque no todos se resisten, algunos se subordinan- . Estas fuerzas “direccionadoras” pueden ser Estados, actores transnacionales, empresas multinacionales, etc. A diferencia de sistemas internacionales anteriores, la novedad, es que el Estado-Nación, deja de ser el actor exclusivo y excluyente . Coincidentemente con el fin del sistema bipolar, se está llegando también al fin de una “macro-etapa” , que ha durado alrededor de 350 años, correspondiente al Estado-Nación. Este, ha entrado en declive desde hace años, perdiendo sus cualidades originales, y será reemplazado por otro tipo de Estado - status organizativo-. La conformación del orden , depende de la configuración del poder (estructura del sistema mundial) , a la vez que su modificación o desaparición, se sujeta a las variaciones en la estructura e incluso a los cambios tecnológicos. En el ámbito internacional no existen los procedimientos que se llevan a cabo al interior de un Estado-Nación. No hay elecciones, ni períodos de gobierno. El poder y los más poderosos son el factor decisivo para la configuración y el orden que tendrá el sistema mundial. El poder supera a los procedimientos. Es la estructura la que lo determina. El orden, depende del poder de policía , ejercido por los más poderosos siguiendo reglas impuestas por ellos de acuerdo con pautas estructurales , ya que no hay un “árbitro supremo” que pueda cumplir con esta función.

Bastiat asserted that the only purpose of government is to defend the right of an individual to life, liberty, and property. From this definition, Bastiat concluded that the law cannot defend life, liberty and property if it promotes socialist policies inherently opposed to these very things. In this way, he says, the law is perverted and turned against the thing it is supposed to defend.

O trabalho não é fonte de toda a riqueza. A natureza é fonte dos valores de uso (que, ao fim e ao cabo são a riqueza real!) tanto quanto o trabalho, ele próprio expressão de uma força natural, a força de trabalho do homem. Esta frase repisada encontra-se em todos os abecedários e só é verdadeira na condição de se subentender que o trabalho é anterior, com todos os objectos e processos que o acompanham. Mas um programa socialista não pode permitir que esta fraseologia burguesa silencie aquelas condições sem as quais não tem sentido algum. Só na medida em que o homem age desde o início como proprietário em relação à natureza, a fonte primeira de todos os meios e materiais de trabalho, só enquanto a trata como um objecto que Ihe pertence, é que o seu trabalho se torna a fonte dos valores de uso e, portanto, da riqueza. Os burgueses têm excelentes razões para atribuir ao trabalho esse sobrenatural poder de criação: pois que precisamente do facto de o trabalho estar na dependência da natureza se deduz que o homem que nada possuir além da força de trabalho será forçosamente, em qualquer estado social e de civilização, escravo de outros homens que se terão erigido em detentores das condições objectivas do trabalho. Ele não pode trabalhar nem, por conseguinte, viver, a não ser com a autorização destes últimos.

En febrero de 2003, millones de personas de todo el mundo salieron a la calle para protestar contra la guerra de Iraq y la ofensiva imperial de los Estados Unidos. Aquella movilización fue de tal magnitud que The New York Times afirmó que la opinión pública global se había convertido en “la segunda superpotencia”. Lo que dio una fuerza especial a aquellas protestas fue su alianza –aunque fuera efímera– con algunos gobiernos que se mostraron inesperadamente dispuestos a hacer frente a la presión de Washington y, junto con las Naciones Unidas, poner freno a su campaña bélica. Phyllis Bennis analiza el auge del unilateralismo estadounidense y la doctrina de la guerra preventiva, centrándose especialmente en los casos de Iraq e Israel/Palestina, y examina los retos y las oportunidades para reivindicar las Naciones Unidas como parte del movimiento mundial por la paz. Publicado en inglés en 2006 por Arris Books, la traducción en español - en formato de libro electrónico - es publicada por el Transnational Institute e incluye la introducción actualizada en noviembre de 2010 por parte de la autora.

Ashraf Dehghani In February 1971, the Organization of Iranian People's Fedaee Guerrillas (O.I.P.F.G.) initiated the armed struggle in Iran by attacking the gendarmery at Siahkal in Northern Iran. This battle, although militarily a defeat, was an important political victory. Ever since, many revolutionary groups and elements have joined the armed struggle movement and hundreds of revolutionaries have been brutally executed or killed in armed clashes with the regime. Frightened by their heroic struggle, the regime utilized all of its forces to suppress the movement. Imprisonment, torture, and execution were furiously used.  Comrade Ashraf Dehghani, a prominent member of the O.I.P.F.G., was arrested in 1971 and savagely tortured. She succeeded in breaking out of the maximum-security prison and later rejoined the organization. During this time, she wrote her memoirs, which have been translated into English under the title, Torture and Resistance in Iran.  The Organization of Iranian People's Fadaee Guerrillas

The evolution of dictatorship is as much a part of history as the development of democracy. In our ear persuasion has become as powerful a force as repression in creating and maintaining such regimes. Debates over the nature of these systems are at the center of the contemporary U.S. and European foreign policy debates. The flourishing of dictatorship has challenged views of history flavored with optimism and based on a deterministic view that material development brings political progress. At the same time a vision of the world too narrowly focused on the conflict between communism and capitalism must be refocused to understand the emergence of a third World. In fact, it is impossible to defend the West without such an understanding. Our current discussion of dictatorship, much influenced by earlier analyses of “totalitarianism” based on Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s Russia at their peak of control and repression, needs to be updated. This model applies only imperfectly to contemporary dictatorships, particularly those in the Third World.

La peine de mort d’Elisée Reclus, on ne devrait pas avoir besoin de la présenter. Le texte de Reclus n’est pas aussi connu que ceux de Badinter, de Camus ou même de Hugo. Pourtant, il est à lire absolument. Ecrit en 1879, ses arguments n’ont rien de nouveau. La peine de mort est une aberration. Pourtant, nouveaux, ils l’étaient à l’époque, car pour la majorité des révoltés et des pourfendeurs de l’ordre bourgeois au Dix Neuvième siècle, la peine de mort ne se discutait pas, elle s’appliquait. Finalement, vu de cet angle là, on a une poignée d’hommes, une poignée de justes qui ont raison contre tous les autres, ceux qui n’hésitent pas à nous couper la tête, à nous pendre, ou à nous découper en rondelles pour un oui ou pour un non. Reclus est l’un de ces justes, de ces visionnaires qui s’élèvent au dessus des autres.

The Republican Party has undergone a major transition over the last several decades, to the point where views that used to be considered extreme are now standard and commonplace. A few too many Americans seem obsessed with lowering tax rates on the wealthy, denying basic constitutional rights to Muslims and homosexuals, giving corporations free reign to do whatever will make them more money, filling our courts and prisons with marijuana offenders, taking money away from our educational system, combatting the so-called liberal media, disagreeing with the overwhelming majority of scientists, affiliating the government with Christianity, and associating President Obama with anything they deem un-American. Outlets like Fox News have been a driving force in making those views become mainstream, and giving legitimacy to a new, transformed brand of conservatism that has way too much of an influence on US politics. This book aims to expose right wing extremism for what it is, and remind how far today’s Republicans are from the party headed by people like Reagan, Nixon, and Eisenhower.

Improving nutrition in developing nations is likely to require a multisectoral approach that involves a variety of ministries and organizations addressing particular aspects of the problem. Despite the promise of such multisectoral efforts, relatively little research has been done on how such efforts can be made effective. Working Multisectorally in Nutrition: Principles, Practices, and Case Studies provides much-needed evidence on this topic. Using case studies from Senegal and Colombia of successful multisectoral efforts to integrate action on nutrition, the book identifies common characteristics that likely contributed to the programs’ achievements. Key factors were inspiration and support from political leaders and technical staff; effective management approaches combined with operational flexibility; and processes that brought together a wide range of stakeholders and partners to share a common vision and provide them with a clear sense of how the benefits of participation would outweigh the costs. The history of these two programs suggests that addressing complex social problems such as malnutrition often requires going beyond a single, sector-bound agency and that the resulting multisectoral efforts need a strategy for action reflective of partner needs, conditions, and context. The lessons offered in this book can be used to inform and orient policymakers, practitioners, and advocates involved in multisectoral work, not only in combating malnutrition but also, more broadly, in engaging in cross-sectoral and interagency endeavors as a whole.

Se não me falha a memória, escrevi CARTA A UM CAMARADA há mais de um ano atrás, em setembro de 1902. Primeiramente ela andou em cópias, de mão em mão, e se propagou pela Rússia como uma apresentação dos pontos de vista do Iskra sobre a questão da organização. Depois disso a União Siberiana, em junho do ano passado, a reimprimiu e a divulgou numa considerável quantidade de exemplares. Dessa forma, a Carta transformou-se plenamente em propriedade pública e agora não há nenhum motivo que impeça a sua publicação. As raízes que me levaram a não publicá-la antes (precisamente a sua extrema falta de elaboração literária, o seu caráter de "rascunho") estão superadas, pois exatamente sob essa forma de rascunho dela tomaram conhecimento os militantes russos. Ademais, há uma razão mais importante para a reimpressão dessa carta na forma de rascunho (fiz somente as mais necessárias correções estilísticas): o seu significado como "documento". A nova redação do Iskra manifestou, como é sabido, já no número 53, discordâncias relativas às questões de organização.

Following the Victory of Iran’s Islamic revolution in 1979 and the murder of Egypt’s President Anwar al-Sadat in 1981, many studies were undertaken and published on radical Islamic fundamentalist movements in the Middle East. Given these events, that research stressed the importance of such groups, focus-ing on reasons for their rise and possible future success. During the following decade, however, Islamic fundamentalist movements did not come to power in any country. Furthermore, they failed to show the kind of growth in power, size or influence which many observers had expected. Consequently, it is necessary to analyze why the fundamentalists have not done better. This study deals with Egypt, the most important country in the Arab world. Certainly, Egypt had many problems in the 1980s which might conceivably have strengthened radical Islamic groups, whose apparent assets seemed to include a long-established Muslim Brotherhood and a revolutionary underground capable of murdering the country’s ruler. This book considers why other, contrary, factors remained uppermost in Egyptian politics. The book began as a research project for the Orkand Corporation. Raymond Stock did a massive amount of translation with admirable speed and accuracy. Dr Ami Ayalon and Professor Jerrold Green read the manuscript and made ex-tremely helpful suggestions. Enthusiastic support from Simon Winder is also acknowledged with pleasure.

Hundreds of books and thousands of articles have been devoted to the history and contemporary course of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The confrontation within Palestine, the participation of Great Britain, the United States, and the United Nations, and the impact of these events on Jews and Palestinian Arabs have all been endlessly chronicled. Surprisingly little attention, however, has been devoted to the question of how the Arab states entered the battle in the first place. In addition to tracing the events involved in the growing intervention by Arab states in Palestine, this book attempts to analyze two specific issues. How did internal conditions in the various Arab countries affect their involvement in Palestine? How did the network of alliances and conflict among the Arab governments shape their Palestine policies? How can one hope to understand the conflict without exploring this essential dimension? If Arab nations have spilled so much passion, spent many lives and so many billions of dollars over this issue—and remain willing to do so—the tale of how they arrived at this position must be a compelling and revealing one. This story should be expected to revea important principles of international relations and of the connections between domestic politics and foreign policy. In this sense, the 1948 Arab-Israeli war and Israel’s independence represent not only a beginning but also an end. These developments marked the failure of diplomacy and indirect intervention by the Arab states. They seemed to mark as inevitable an evolution of affairs which might often have taken alternative paths. The remnants of pre-1948 ideas and relationships continued to play an important role until 1956. By then, the collapse of the old order, the rise of a new type of Arab leader and of a new model of Arab politics gained the ascendancy. Yet the importance of the Palestine issue and the distinct roles and attitudes of the different Arab states had been largely set through their earlier experiences. One other point should be especially stressed here. Analysts and scholars often explain some aspect of an Arab government’s foreign policy by presenting it as an attempt to distract public attention from domestic problems. In this light Arab rulers are seen as the masters and manipulators of their political culture. On the contrary, given the powerful and widely accepted premises of Islam and of Arabism, Arab leaders themselves are often seriously constrained. The failure to take certain actions, which may be dangerous and against their personal or national interests, will expose them to the campaigns of domestic and foreign rivals. The ruler may become the subject and even the victim of such necessities. This theme will constantly reappear in the study, and it is an important component in the inner logic of Arab politics. When the research for this book began I confided my plans to an Arab historian. The idea was, I explained, to write about the efforts of the Arab states over Palestine, particularly in the pre-1948 period. “Oh,” he replied with a cynical smile, “they really didn’t do very much.” I hope this book will convince him otherwise.

Em consequencia da invasão francêsa e da abertura dos portos do Brasil ás nações amigas, a miseria no Reino ia em crescimento assustador. Cada anno assignalava nova reducção na marinha; augmentava a importação dos generos de primeira necessidade, a começar pelo trigo; fechavam-se as fabricas, os productos vencidos da concorrencia inglêsa no ultramar, e os operarios, famintos, tornavam-se mendigos ou ladrões. Em 1820 a penuria attingia o extremo. Exgottado inteiramente, o erario não pagava aos funccionarios publicos nem restituia os depositos. Queixavam-se os soldados de que havia oito mezes não recebiam os soldos, e nem mesmo os compromissos sagrados do monte-pio eram satisfeitos; á miseria ajuntava-se a humilhação. Humilhação no exercito, onde a presença de officiaes europeus fazia acreditar na incapacidade do português para defender só a terra natal; humilhação em todas as classes, porque a gloriosa nação se achava reduzida á colonia do Brasil, constituido o centro da monarchia, por abrigar o soberano.

It is an undertaking of some degree of delicacy to examine into the cause of public disorders.   If a man happens not to succeed in such an inquiry, he will be thought weak and visionary; if he touches the true grievance, there is a danger that he may come near to persons of weight and consequence, who will rather be exasperated at the discovery of their errors than thankful for the occasion of correcting them. It also includes speeches and essays on political issues.

The present volume contains the six metrical tales which were composed within the years 1812 and 1815, the Hebrew Melodies, and the minor poems of 1809-1816. With the exception of the first fifteen poems (1809-1811)—Chansons de Voyage, as they might be called—the volume as a whole was produced on English soil. Beginning with the Giaour; which followed in the wake of Childe Harold and shared its triumph, and ending with the ill-omened Domestic Pieces, or Poems of the Separation, the poems which Byron wrote in his own country synchronize with his popularity as a poet by the acclaim and suffrages of his own countrymen. His greatest work, by which his lasting fame has been established, and by which his relative merits as a great poet will be judged in the future, was yet to come; but the work which made his name, which is stamped with his sign-manual, and which has come to be regarded as distinctively and characteristically Byronic, preceded maturity and achievement.

A que poderá attribuir-se o estranho desenvolvimento que se nota hoje em Italia. Em nosso juizo, não só ao culto do Direito que floresce n'aquella terra, abençoada pela natureza e pela arte, como em nenhuma outra, senão tambem ao seu espirito assimilador. Sendo uma nação latina, possuindo o temperamento apaixonado e ardente dos povos latinos, assimilou com extraordinaria facilidade o criterio sereno, ponderado e reflectido dos allemães com quem está em contacto e d'ahi deriva evidentemente a sua incontestavel superioridade na civilisação do nosso tempo.

Este livro corresponde ao meu trabalho de conclusão de curso de graduação em Ciência Política pela Universidade de Brasília. No livro são apresentadas as principais reformas políticas ocorridas no Brasil e na ex-União Soviética durante o momento de transição destes países para a democracia na segunda metade da década de 1980 e início da década de 1990. Em seguida são feitas análises comparativas sobre o impacto que tais reformas ocasionaram no ambiente político dos dois países, notadamente no que diz respeito à democracia.

An estimated 70 million people may have died in Soviet gulags. Such raises many questions: Where is the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of the Stalinist reign of terror? Where are the six hundred prisoners armed with stolen guns and grenades attacking the Nazi guards, literally blowing up the death houses at Treblinka, and fleeing into the nearby Polish forests? Where are the suicide missions? How could the Russian people have gone to their incarceration, torture, and slaughter like lambs? Was fear of government retaliation so pervasive in the Soviet mind that it negated any and all forms of resisting, dissenting, and protesting? Why did the Jews, despite their relative few in number and the lateness of the hour, arm themselves in rebellion, while the Soviets of this period appear as pacifists in the face of a system which exemplified dialectical terrorism?The writer and Soviet dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008), winner of the 1970 Nobel Prize in Literature, introduced the term Gulag to the Western world with the 1973 publication of his The Gulag Archipelago. The book likened the scattered prison camps to a “chain of islands” and depicted the Gulag as a system where people were essentially worked to death. In March 1940, for example, there were 53 separate camps and 423 labor colonies in the USSR. This essay attempts to glean the manifestations which occurred within the Gulag that can be characterized as inmates resisting, dissenting, and otherwise engaging in protesting-like activities. This objective is carried out by examining resistance in the Gulag archipelago through addressing the relevant portions of historical written works, including among other sources, Soviet historian Roy A. Medvedev’s Let History Judge: The Origins and Consequences of Stalinism (1972), Robert Goldston’s The Russian Revolution (1966) , two of Solzhenitsyn’s finest novels, Cancer Ward (1972) and The First Circle (1972), and of course, through our primary source, Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956: An Experiment in Literary Investigation. Parts I-II (1973). While written in 1974 as the author’s senior thesis as a Political Science major college undergraduate, some might question the dated nature of this essay given the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, and other subsequent reforms that have since taken place in Russia. But such would be short term focused and misguided, in the sense that the subject remains useful given that contemporary Russia, the former Soviet Union has, in many ways, failed to come to grips with the Stalinist era in Soviet history and its resultant tragic legacy and thus, Stalin’s infamously true reputation as a tyrannical leader and mass murderer of his own people. As David Satter (2011) powerfully observes in It Was a Long Time Ago, And It Never Really Happened Anyway: Russia and the Communist Past (Yale University Press) the elemental failing of Russia’s leaders and people is their refusal in facing the moral depravity of its Soviet past, including its most savage manifestation: Joseph Stalin’s terror. In addition to containing its original selected bibliography, prepared in 1974, this essay has been improved upon by adding a new, post-1974 era bibliography, reflecting some of the relevant subsequent developments and their related writings regarding the Gulag camps, Stalinist Russia, and surely, Alexander Solzhenitsyn and his related literary works.

The subject of electoral reform has been brought into prominence in Australia by a clause in the Commonwealth Bill which provides that the Federal Senate shall consist of six senators from each State, directly chosen by the people, voting as one electorate. The problem thus presented has been keenly discussed. On the one hand we have the advocates of the Block Vote asserting that the party in a majority is entitled to return all six senators; and on the other, a small band of ardent reformers pressing the claims of the Hare system, which would allow the people in each State to group themselves into six sections, each returning one senator.
