or are Gulf-based, oil-linked or banking firms. Rent and indirect taxation such as import duties relieve most states of dependency on the bourgeoisie for tax revenues, which might give the latter the leverage to demand a share of power, and business is often quite dependent on the state (for contracts, licenses, etc.). Business lacks the institutionalised access and clout it enjoys in developed capitalist states: in the authoritarian republics, the military and bureaucracy and in the monarchies, royal families dominate foreign policy making. In more liberal states

, Paulina patronises an image that disrupts the solidity of the monumentalised form in order to mark the reunion of the Sicilian royal family. The supposed image of Hermione is ‘unfixed’ and unstable partly because, like The Great Picture Triptych , the work attempts to reflect the passage of time. For example, Leontes observes that the statue is presented with an ‘aged’ appearance (5.3.29). Displaying her

-determination later enunciated by Woodrow Wilson in his ‘fourteen points’. The reality of the first Yugoslav state, known as the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, was somewhat different. In place of federalism was monarchical centralism and in place of selfdetermination was the rule of law of the Kingdom of Serbia. The Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was to be ruled by the Serb Royal family, under King Aleksander.112 There is some evidence that Croats welcomed the Yugoslav idea, despite the fact that it constituted a major rupture to the historic statehood narrative.

People are dying for it.’34 In the face of these behavioural indications of a rallying public spirit, the Ministry of Information, on the contrary, appeared to be worried about civilian morale. On 18 May Home Intelligence reported that ‘public morale is at a low ebb’; a week later it expressed concern about the apparent spread of rumours that the royal family CHAP2.p65 61 16/09/02, 09:24 62 PROSPECT AND REALITY was about to leave for

after. They could have been after the royal family. When Sven Otto Littorin told me about his experiences of escape, the mood in the room was characterised by seriousness. Grimly, he described in detail how reporters from Aftonbladet pursued the getaway car that he and his then partner were travelling in. The first two weeks were pure escape, he said. They switched cars at night, dumped telephones in litter bins, and sought temporary refuge in the forest in a holiday home belonging to a friend’s in-laws. He described it as ‘entering a second childhood’ during such

–Israeli one. As mentioned previously, no deterioration was recorded in the bilateral relations during the short-term government of Erbakan. Also, raising the Muslim common nexus was greeted with little enthusiasm by the secular and military elite of Turkey. It is interesting to note the remedy proposed by Khaled bin Sutlan bin Abed al-Aziz, a scion of the Saudi royal family, son of the Saudi Defense Minister, and proprietor and publisher of the Al-Hiyat newspaper.

James’s Palace and by the fact that the royal family had recently received Allied heads of state. The Foreign Office remained unimpressed and sided with French Welfare. It was understood that such a manifestation would create resentment on the part of other Allied citizens many of whom might refuse to partake in the event. The example of the Norwegians was cited. They were so angered by the self-aggrandising instincts of the FGB that they refused to have anything to do with the organisation. Accordingly, Bessborough thanked the FGB for its endeavours but declined the

Belgian society, his education was conducted half in French, half in Flemish. The reigning King Leopold’s clumsy attempts at intervening in politics during the inter-war period caused resentment against the royal family in Belgium, and, after the Second World War, they went into exile in Switzerland. Leopold was only allowed to return to the throne in 1950 on condition that his son Baudouin take on most of his powers, becoming Prince
