Itamar Rabinovich

Yitzhak Rabin: Soldier, Leader, Statesman by Itamar RabinovichAn insider's perspective on the life and influence of Israel's first native-born prime minister, his bold peace initiatives, and his tragic assassination

This revealing account of his life, character, and contributions draws not only on original research but also on the author's recollections as one of Rabin's closest aides....

Michel Leiris

Fibrils: The Rules of the Game, Volume 3 by Michel LeirisA major publishing event: the third volume of Michel Leiris's renowned autobiography, now available in English for the first time in a brilliant translation by Lydia Davis

A beloved and versatile author and ethnographer, French intellectual Michel Leiris is often ranked in the company of Proust, Gide, Sartre, and Camus, yet his work remains largely unfamiliar to English-language readers. This brilliant translation of Fibrils, the third volume of his monumental autobiographical project The Rules of the Game, invites us to discover why Lévi-Strauss proclaimed him "incontestably one of the greatest...

Mail Men: The Unauthorized Story of the Daily Mail - The Paper that Divided and Conquered Britain

Adrian Addison

Mail Men: The Unauthorized Story of the Daily Mail - The Paper that Divided and Conquered Britain by Adrian Addison

Perhaps because of the power and fear that the Daily Mail commands, this is the very first book to provide an unauthorized account of the newspaper with more global readers than any other. With a gripping personality-led narrative, informed by well-placed sources, Mail Men investigates the secret behind the Mail's extraordinary longevity and commercial success, from its first edition on 4 May 1896, to its global MailOnline website today. But, it also examines the controversies that have beset the paper - from its owner's flirtation with fascism in the 1930s to its fractious relationship with...

Ambassadors of Realpolitik: Sweden, the CSCE, and the Cold War

Aryo Makko

Ambassadors of Realpolitik: Sweden, the CSCE, and the Cold War by Aryo Makko During the Cold War, Sweden actively cultivated a reputation as the "conscience of the world," working to build bridges between East and West and embracing a nominal commitment to international solidarity. This groundbreaking study explores the tension between realism and idealism in Swedish diplomacy during a key episode in Cold War history: the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, culminating in the 1975 Helsinki Accords. Through careful analysis of new evidence, it offers a compelling counternarrative of this period, showing that Sweden strategically ignored human rights violations...

The Nuclear Crisis: The Arms Race, Cold War Anxiety, and the German Peace Movement of the 1980s

Christoph Becker-Schaum

The Nuclear Crisis: The Arms Race, Cold War Anxiety, and the German Peace Movement of the 1980s by Christoph Becker-Schaum In 1983, more than one million Germans joined together to protest NATO's deployment of nuclear missiles in Europe. International media overflowed with images of marches, rallies, and human chains as protesters blockaded depots and agitated for disarmament. Though they failed to halt the deployment, the episode was a decisive one for German society, revealing deep divisions in the nation's political culture while continuing to mobilize activists. This volume provides a comprehensive reference work on the "Euromissiles" crisis as experienced by its various protagonists, analyzing NATO's diplomatic...

Michel Leiris

Scratches: The Rules of the Game, Volume 1 by Michel LeirisA dazzling translation by Lydia Davis of the first volume of Michel Leiris's masterwork, perhaps the most important French autobiographical enterprise of the twentieth century

Michel Leiris, a French intellectual whose literary works inspired high praise from the likes of Simone de Beauvoir and Claude Lévi-Strauss, began the first volume of his autobiographical project at the age of 40. It was the beginning of an endeavor that ultimately required 35 years and three additional volumes.
 
In Volume 1, Scratches, Leiris proposes to discover a savoir vivre, a mode of living that would have a place...

Claiming the City and Contesting the State: Squatting, Community Formation and Democratization in Spain (1955-1986)

Inbal Ofer

Claiming the City and Contesting the State: Squatting, Community Formation and Democratization in Spain (1955-1986) by Inbal Ofer

The present book analyzes the relationship between internal migration, urbanization and democratization in Spain during the period of General Francisco Franco's dictatorship (1939-1975) and Spain's transition to democracy (1975-1982). Specifically, the book explores the production and management of urban space as one form of political and social repression under the dictatorship, and the threat posed to the official urban planning regimes by the phenomenon of mass squatting (chabolismo).

The growing body of recent literature that analyzes the role of neighborhood associations within Spain's transition...

Millenarian Bolshevism 1900-1920: Empiriomonism, God-Building, Proletarian Culture

David G. Rowley

Millenarian Bolshevism 1900-1920: Empiriomonism, God-Building, Proletarian Culture by David G. Rowley

Millenarian Bolshevism had its origins in a debate between positivist and idealist Marxists at the turn of the 20th Century. This book, originally published in 1987, charts the development of Millenarian Bolshevism by studying the careers of Bogdanov and Lunacharsky and analyzing their relations with Lenin, Gorky and other left Bolsheviks. In discussing their relationship with Lenin, the author maintains that the millenarian Bolsheviks gave expression to the voluntarist, idealist spirit which was inherent in the program and organization of Bolshevism and which provided the philosophy of Soviet...
