обложка книги Gay Propaganda Gay Propaganda

Gay Propaganda brings together original stories, interviews and testimonials to capture the lives and loves of LGBT Russians living both in Russia and in exile today. It is an intentionally provocative riposte to Russia’s recently passed and ill-defined ban on “homosexual propaganda.”

As part of a strategy to consolidate political control in Russia following massive pro-democracy protests that shook the government, President Vladimir Putin decided it needed an enemy to unite the country. The Kremlin opted to demonize gays and lesbians. In June 2013 Putin signed a bill banning the “propaganda” of so-called non-traditional relationships. Predictably, in the months that followed, anti-gay attacks spread across Russia.

The stories gathered in Gay Propaganda offer a timely and intimate window into the hardships faced by Russians on the receiving end of state-sanctioned homophobia, as well as the the humor, passion, and resilience people show in the face of adversity. Here are stories of men and women in long-term committed relationships as well as those still looking for love; of those raising kids or negotiating difficult family dynamics; of those facing the challenges of continuing to live in Russia or joining a rapidly growing exodus.

обложка книги Geopolitical Exotica Geopolitical Exotica

Geopolitical Exotica examines exoticized Western representations of Tibet and Tibetans and the debate over that land’s status with regard to China. Concentrating on specific cultural images of the twentieth century-promulgated by novels, popular films, travelogues, and memoirs-Dibyesh Anand lays bare the strategies by which “Exotica Tibet” and “Tibetanness” have been constructed, and he investigates the impact these constructions have had on those who are being represented.

Although images of Tibet have excited the popular imagination in the West for many years, Geopolitical Exotica is the first book to explore representational practices within the study of international relations. Anand challenges the parochial practices of current mainstream international relations theory and practice, claiming that the discipline remains mostly Western in its orientation. His analysis of Tibet’s status with regard to China scrutinizes the vocabulary afforded by conventional international relations theory and considers issues that until now have been undertheorized in relation to Tibet, including imperialism, history, diaspora, representation, and identity.

In this masterfully synthetic work, Anand establishes that postcoloniality provides new insights into themes of representation and identity and demonstrates how IR as a discipline can meaningfully expand its focus beyond the West.

Dibyesh Anand is a reader in international relations at the University of Westminster, London.

  •  What Happened
     Clinton Hillary Rodham
     Наука, Образование, Политика, Документальная литература, Биографии и Мемуары, Публицистика

    “In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I’m letting my guard down.”

    —Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the introduction of What Happened

    For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

    In these pages, she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells readers what it took to get back on her feet—the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through, and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.

    She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.

    The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. What Happened is the story of that campaign and its aftermath—both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation.

  •  Фузеи и Карамультуки
     Джемаль Гейдар Джахидович
     Наука, Образование, Политика, Религия и духовность, Религия

    «Фузеи» и «карамультуки» — название старинных кремневых ружей: первые стояли на вооружении регулярных армий, вторыми же пользовались пастухи и охотники Центральной Азии и Кавказа. Российская империя — «тюрьма народов» — вырастала из смертельного диалога этих стволов в дни Суворова и шейха Мансура, Ермолова и шейха Шамиля, Скобелева и защитников Хивы и Коканда… Тексты в данной книге — это свидетельства нашей эпохи, в которой беспощадно противостоящие друг другу силы встречаются перед началом генеральной битвы, обмениваясь до времени одиночными выстрелами из укрытий. Они писались со знанием того, что в будущем историки станут рассматривать первое десятилетие третьего тысячелетия как пролог к коренным, возможно, катастрофическим изменениям в облике известной нам мировой цивилизации. И каждый отдельный выстрел — сделан ли он из надраенной в казармах «фузии» или тщательно сберегаемого в сакле дедовского «карамультука» — содержит в себе в зародыше весь грядущий шквал огня, в котором, быть может, без остатка сгорит наше сегодняшнее время.

  •  Putin
     Lourie Richard
     Наука, Образование, История, Политика, Документальная литература, Биографии и Мемуары, Публицистика

    An electrifying and timely book, by leading Russian expert Richard Lourie, that explores Putin’s failures and whether Trump’s election gives Putin extraordinarily dangerous opportunities in our mad new world.

    “A master chronicler of modern Russia. Drawing on his own expertise, Lourie paints a convincing portrait of a ruthless authoritarian leader headed toward failure. This book serves as an essential primer on Putin and, by extension, Russia.”

    Publishers Weekly

    For reasons that are made clear in this book, Putin’s Russia will collapse just as Imperial Russia did in 1917 and as Soviet Russia did in 1991. The only questions are when, how violently, and with how much peril for the world. The U.S. election complicates everything, including:

    • Putin’s next land grab

    • Exploitations of the Arctic

    • Cyber-espionage

    • Putin and China

    …and many more crucial topics.

    Putin: His Downfall and Russia’s Coming Crash is an essential read for everybody bewildered and dismayed by the new world order.
