обложка книги What Happened What Happened

“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.

обложка книги When China Rules the World When China Rules the World

For well over two hundred years we have lived in a western-made world, one where the very notion of being modern is inextricably bound up with being western. The twenty-first century will be different. The rise of China, India and the Asian tigers means that, for the first time, modernity will no longer be exclusively western. The west will be confronted with the fact that its systems, institutions and values are no longer the only ones on offer. The key idea of Martin Jacques's ground-breaking new book is that we are moving into an era of contested modernity. The central player in this new world will be China. Continental in size and mentality, China is a 'civilisation-state' whose characteristics, attitudes and values long predate its existence as a nation-state. Although clearly influenced by the west, its extraordinary size and history mean that it will remain highly distinct, and as it exercises its rapidly growing power it will change much more than the world's geo-politics. The nation-state as we understand it will no longer be globally dominant, and the Westphalian state-system will be transformed; ideas of race will be redrawn. This profound and far-sighted book explains for the first time the deeper meaning of the rise of China.

Book Review: When China Rules the World

“When you’re alone and life is making you lonely, you can always go: downtown.” So warbled the British singer, Petula Clark in the 1960s. However, today if solitude is your constant companion, I would suggest that you purchase a copy of this riveting book and read it on the bus and in airports — as I have been doing in recent days, with the dramatic words on the bright red cover of this weighty tome blaring insistently — and no doubt you will find, as I have, that your reading reverie will be constantly interrupted by a stream of anxious interlopers curious to know what the future may hold.

For like Petula Clark, the author too hails from London, though the startling message he brings decidedly differs from her melancholy intervention. For it is the author’s conclusion that sooner rather than later, China — a nation ruled by a Communist Party — will have the most sizeable and powerful economy in the world and that this will have manifold economic, cultural, psychological (and racial) consequences. Strangely enough, Jacques — one of the better respected intellectuals in the North Atlantic community — does not dwell upon how this monumental turn of events occurred. To be sure, he pays obeisance to the leadership of Comrade Deng Xiaoping, who in 1978, opened China’s economy to massive inward foreign direct investment, which set the stage for the 21st Century emergence of the planet’s most populous nation. Yet, for whatever reason, Jacques — who once was a leading figure in the British Communist Party — does not deign to detail to the gentle reader how Beijing brokered an alliance with US imperialism, that helped to destabilize their mutual foe in Moscow, which prepared the path for the gargantuan capital infusion that has transformed China and bids fair to do the same for the world as a whole.

Still, it is noteworthy that this book’s back-cover carries blurbs from the conservative economic historian, Niall Ferguson of Harvard (Henry Kissinger’s authorized biographer); the leading historian, Eric Hobsbawm; the well-known Singaporean intellectual and leader, Kishore Mahbubani (who has written a book that mirrors Jacques’ earthshaking conclusions); and a raft of Chinese thinkers who do not seem displeased nor surprised by his findings.

обложка книги When the United States Invaded Russia When the United States Invaded Russia

In a little-known episode at the height of World War I, President Woodrow Wilson dispatched thousands of American soldiers to Siberia. Carl J. Richard convincingly shows that Wilson’s original intent was to enable Czechs and anti-Bolshevik Russians to rebuild the Eastern Front against the Central Powers. But Wilson continued the intervention for a year and a half after the armistice in order to overthrow the Bolsheviks and to prevent the Japanese from absorbing eastern Siberia. As Wilson and the Allies failed to formulate a successful Russian policy at the Paris Peace Conference, American doughboys suffered great hardships on the bleak plains of Siberia.

Richard argues that Wilson’s Siberian intervention ironically strengthened the Bolshevik regime it was intended to topple. Its tragic legacy can be found in the seeds of World War II—which began with an alliance between Germany and the Soviet Union, the two nations most aggrieved by Allied treatment after World War I—and in the Cold War, a forty-five year period in which the world held its collective breath over the possibility of nuclear annihilation.

One of the earliest U.S. counterinsurgency campaigns outside the Western Hemisphere, the Siberian intervention was a harbinger of policies to come. Richard notes that it teaches invaluable lessons about the extreme difficulties inherent in interventions and about the absolute need to secure widespread support on the ground if such campaigns are to achieve success, knowledge that U.S. policymakers tragically ignored in Vietnam and have later struggled to implement in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Эволюция человека не просто продолжается: биотехнологии многократно ускоряют и углубляют, форсируют ее, превращая в реальность самые смелые домыслы. Каким будет человеческий облик через полтора десятилетия? И как его изменение изменит отношения между людьми и цивилизациями?

  •  Спецслужбы Польши, Советской России и Германии

  •  СУММА СТРАТЕГИИ
     Переслегин Сергей Борисович
     Наука, Образование, Политика

    В современном мире для владения стратегическим знанием нужно знать и понимать много других вещей, поэтому мы решили, что книга будет не только и не столько о военной стратегии. Эта книга – о стратегии как способе мышления. Она также и о том, куда и как развивается стратегическое знание, какие вызовы стоят перед стратегией в современном мире и в чем будет заключаться стратегия в мире постсовременном.

    Мы рассчитываем, что книга «Стратегическое знание» будет полезна и интересна всем читателям. Для кого-то она станет учебником или подспорьем в работе (в ней есть конспекты и схемы). Для кого-то – просто интересным чтением на любимую тематику (в книге много исторических и злободневных примеров успехов и провалов, стратегий и «стратегий»). А для кого-то, мы надеемся, материалом для размышления и полемики с авторами (потому что в ней будет много поставленных и не решенных вопросов).

  •  Диалектический материализм
     Маркс Карл, Энгельс Фридрих, Сталин Иосиф Виссарионович, Ленин Владимир Ильич
     Наука, Образование, История, Философия, Политика

    Настоящий сборник, в котором приведены и по определенному плану систематизированы извлечения из работ Маркса, Энгельса, Ленина, Сталина, дает широкую возможность ознакомиться с классическими произведениями диалектического материализма. Круг вопросов и расположение приведенного здесь материала в основном отвечают программе социально-экономических вузов.

    Составители сборника всемерно стремились преодолеть обычные для данного типа книги разрозненность и отрывочность материала путем сохранения внутренней связи изложения, а также посредством приведения отдельных произведений полностью. Овладеть материалистической диалектикой можно только в практике революционной борьбы и неустанной работы над всем богатством идей марксизма-ленинизма.

    Здесь приведены полностью тезисы Маркса о Людвиге Фейербахе, отдельные главы "Анти-Дюринга" Энгельса, ряд глав из "Диалектики природы" , фрагмент "К вопросу о диалектике", "План логики" Гегеля, "Карл Маркс", письмо т. Сталина в редакцию журнала "Пролетарская революция" и ряд других произведений.

  •  Сибирское бремя
     Хилл Фиона, Гэдди Клиффорд
     Наука, Образование, История, Политика, Документальная литература, Публицистика, Экономика, ,

    В книге известных американских специалистов представлена оригинальная авторская концепция анализа причин и характера освоения сибирских регионов России в годы советской власти и после распада СССР в контексте политической климатологии — новой подотрасли современной науки политической экологии. С этой точки зрения книга представляет собой методологическую новацию. Авторы рассматривают вопросы развития «Русских Северов» в сравнении с опытом освоения арктических и субарктических регионов Канады, обнаруживая некоторые сходства и множественные различия, давая собственные оценки и объяснения причин проявляющихся процессов. В книге предложен один из наиболее полных и продуманных зарубежных вариантов понимания движущих мотивов, издержек и перспектив оптимального развития сибирских регионов в контексте общенациональных задач Российской Федерации.

    Издание адресовано преподавателям вузов, научным сотрудникам, аспирантам и студентам, обучающимся по специальностям «политология», «экономика», «социология», «новейшая история», а также широкому кругу читателей, интересующихся историей России и СССР.
