Описание: Sport in East Germany is commonly associated with the systematic doping that helped to make the country an Olympic superpower. Football played little part in this controversial story. Yet, as a hugely popular activity that was deeply entwined in the social fabric, it exerted an influence that few institutions or pursuits could match. The People's Game examines the history of football from the interrelated perspectives of star players, fans, and ordinary citizens who played for fun. Using archival sources and interviews, it reveals football's fluid role in preserving and challenging communist hegemony. By repeatedly emphasising that GDR football was part of an international story, for example, through analysis of the 1974 World Cup finals, Alan McDougall shows how sport transcended the Iron Curtain. Through a study of the mass protests against the Stasi team, BFC, during the 1980s, he reveals football's role in foreshadowing the downfall of communism.
Описание: Paul Keal examines the historical role of international law and political theory in justifying the dispossession of indigenous peoples as part of the expansion of international society. He argues that, paradoxically, law and political theory can now underpin the recovery of indigenous rights. At the heart of contemporary struggles is the core right of self-determination, and Keal argues for recognition of indigenous peoples as ‘peoples’ with the right of self-determination in constitutional and international law, and for adoption of the Draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples by the General Assembly. He asks whether the theory of international society can accommodate indigenous peoples and considers the political arrangements needed for states to satisfy indigenous claims. The book also questions the moral legitimacy of international society and examines notions of collective guilt and responsibility.

Описание: Ottoman Empire is depicted as terminally ill, `the sick man of Europe` according to powers in nineteenth century. But was patient dying? Did some chronic malady overwhelm Ottoman Empire? This book argues that Ottoman Empire collapsed not because of any problems `within` but because of imperial ambitions of outside powers and a tide of nationalism.
"Baghdad fell on a Tuesday I think. I went driving around our neighborhood, Karada, with my husband a day or two after that just to have a look around. The looters were everywhere. I saw women and children pushing trolleys full of things out of an old intelligence office. At the national theater, they were loading a garbage truck with the seats from inside, and streams of people were coming out carrying all kinds of props. I saw plastic models of the planets bopping down the streets in the arms of thieves. They took everything you can imagine taking from a theater. Everything."& mdash;Azhar Abdul-Karim Abdul-Wahab, lecturer in political science, Baghdad University
Featuring the testimony of close to seventy Iraqis from all backgrounds and occupations& mdash;from onetime Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi to insurgents speaking on the condition of anonymity& mdash; "Voices from Iraq" builds a riveting chronological history unmatched for its insight and revelations. Beginning in 2003, this intimate narrative includes the experiential accounts of civilians, politicians, former dissidents, and present insurgents, enhanced by Mark Kukis's compelling individual portraits. Divided into five parts, it recounts the 2003 invasion; Iraq's gradual slide into chaos from 2004 to 2005; the start of a new order in 2006; the rise in open sectarian violence over the next two years; and the effort since 2008 to reconstruct a society from relative calm. Each section includes about fifteen interviews grouped into themes, with brief epilogues for the participants. Not since Studs Terkel's "The Good War" has a book captured so acutely the human consequences of a conflict we still struggle to understand. "Voices from Iraq" is essential for anyone in search of the meaning and legacy of America's campaign in Iraq.
Описание: Bernhard Rieger reveals how a car commissioned by Hitler and designed by Ferdinand Porsche became a global commodity on a par with Coca-Cola. The Beetle`s success hinged on its uncanny ability to capture the imaginations of executives, engineers, advertisers, car collectors, suburbanites, hippies, and everyday drivers across nations and cultures.
Описание: The Cambridge History of the Native Peoples of the Americas, Volume II: Mesoamerica (Part Two), gives a comprehensive and authoritative overview of all the important native civilizations of the Mesoamerican area, beginning with archaeological discussions of paleoindian, archaic and preclassic societies and continuing to the present. Fully illustrated and engagingly written, the book is divided into sections that discuss the native cultures of Mesoamerica before and after their first contact with the Europeans. The various chapters balance theoretical points of view as they trace the cultural history and evolutionary development of such groups as the Olmec, the Maya, the Aztec, the Zapotec, and the Tarascan. The chapters covering the prehistory of Mesoamerica offer explanations for the rise and fall of the Classic Maya, the Olmec, and the Aztec, giving multiple interpretations of debated topics, such as the nature of Olmec culture. Through specific discussions of the native peoples of the different regions of Mexico, the chapters on the period since the arrival of the Europeans address the themes of contact, exchange, transfer, survivals, continuities, resistance, and the emergence of modern nationalism and the nation-state.

Описание: What did it mean to be British during the `People`s War`? Professor Rose uses material from newspapers, diaries, novels and letters to examine popular notions of citizenship on the home front. Themes covered include who was included as `British`, what was it like to be Jewish during the war and what was the impact of American GIs?
