Muslim Democratic Parties in the Middle East: Economy and Politics of Islamist Moderation

A. Kadir Yildirim

Muslim Democratic Parties in the Middle East: Economy and Politics of Islamist Moderation by A. Kadir YildirimA.Kadir Yildirim and other scholars have used the term "Muslim Democrat" to describe moderate Islamist political parties, suggesting a parallel with Christian Democratic parties in Europe. These parties (MDPs) are marked by their adherence to a secular political regime, normative commitment to the rules of a democratic political system, and the democratic political representation of a religious identity. In this book, Yildirim draws on extensive field research in Turkey, Egypt, and Morocco to examine this phenomenon and assess the interaction of economic and political factors in the development...

Democracy by Decree: Prospects and Limits of Imposed Consociational Democracy in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Adis Merdzanovic

Democracy by Decree: Prospects and Limits of Imposed Consociational Democracy in Bosnia and Herzegovina by Adis MerdzanovicThe introduction of consociational power sharing as a post-war political system has become one of the international community's preferred post-conflict devices. In situations where warring polities are internally divided by ethnic, religious, linguistic, or national identity, consociationalism guarantees the inclusion of all groups in the political process and prevents a ‘tyranny' of the majority over one or more minorities. However, if international actors keep intervening in the political process, the advantages of consociationalism are turned upside down.

In this exceptional book, Adis Merdzanovic...

Who Really Runs the World? The War Between Globalization and Democracy

Alex Games & Thom Burnett

Who Really Runs the World? The War Between Globalization and Democracy by Alex Games & Thom BurnettThe world is a mess. It's constantly at war, things cost too much, and the average person struggles to survive against powers they can barely see, let alone control. It appears so at odds with common sense, in fact, that it begs a fundamental question: Who runs the world? This book looks at the conspiracies in everyday life, both hidden and not-so-hidden. It examines actual people, businesses, social networks, corporate alliances, and the dark forces of conspiracy and secret history that hold them together. The conclusions reached may shock and scandalize some people—especially those who fervently...

What are the main advantages and disadvantages of global free trade? Does it exist in practice?

Anne Uhlhaas

What are the main advantages and disadvantages of global free trade? Does it exist in practice? by Anne UhlhaasThe posed question comprises three different issues which have to be investigated. The first thing, implied in this question is, whether or not there are more arguments for or against global free trade both in theory and in practice. Secondly, we have to ask, if real global free trade is being practised in our times. The third issue deals with the question of how we should go on in the future. Is global free trade worth being expanded or should we better tend to protectionism?
In this essay I will argue that although free trade is said to cause some unintentional side-effects it is a better way...

Roots of War and Terror

Anthony Stevens

Roots of War and Terror by Anthony StevensIn 'The Roots of War and Terror', Anthony Stevens provides profound insights into the nature and origins of armed conflict. Combining the concepts of the archetype and the collective unconscious (Jungian) with crucial evidence from the behavioural and biological sciences, Stevens exposes war as an ancient propensity rooted in human psychology - particularly in the psychology and anatomy of the human male.

Stevens explains what attracts men to the profession of arms and describes the age-old techniques, still used in military training camps, which are necessary to activate the warrior archetype...
