join the democratic camp in 1991. Differentiation according to rank can be complemented by differentiation according to role. So, for example, what are the commonalities of mindset shared by such siloviki as Viktor Kazantsev, Andrei Chernenko, and Vladimir Putin? • • • Kazantsev was appointed presidential representative in the Southern federal district in 2000, having within the previous year commanded the Russian forces in the field during the second Chechen war. Colonel-General Andrei Chernenko was appointed the head of the Federal Migration Service under the

generated the European pattern of internal revolutions, ‘doctrinal-­isms, ranging from legitimism and absolutism to socialism and communism, via nationalism, ultramontanism and liberalism’, brought major disasters such as two world wars, Fascism, the Holocaust, Stalinism.62 (2) The new worlds: represented primarily, but not exclusively, by the Americas, South as well as North. In this group, while modernity was ‘created by early modern conquest and mass migration, the theoretical and practical struggle for modernity was largely external, against colonial Europe and by

becomes a source of pride rather than a stigma because Peña notes: ‘The much of the population was mestizo’.7 Gómez-​ millions of indios, the original proto-​Mexicans, were portrayed as living in a parallel (and mythical) time and space outside our history and society’ (Ethno-​Techno p. 7). Banks argues this was an effective strategy in consolidating Mexico’s identity: ‘Mexico’s policy of ennobling its indigenous population while simultaneously encouraging European migration is not inconsistent with the creation of a single national identity.’8 Across the US

in 1947 was eventually undermined by its very success. During the years 1958 to 1963, the Italian economy grew at an annual average of 6 per cent, and investment and industrial production more than doubled. Several problems ensued. Territorially the rewards were uneven. The industrial north flourished but, even with an injection of resources, the still predominantly rural south could generate nowhere near the same level of average incomes. High growth, emigration to other EEC states, and migration from the south to the north created nearly full employment, but, as

As Nulifer Gole put it: “instead of asking for assimilation and equality the Islamists claim differences, much as U.S. Afro-Americans have done … ‘Islam is beautiful like black is beautiful’.” 16 But this might also be misleading, or could be differently interpreted. Most of these believers are migrants from the traditionally religious villages. The construction of transportation and communication networks has eased this migration, which was part of the mighty wave of industrialization and urbanization that has

formally inaugurated the raft of measures known as the White Australia policy. This policy, which remained in force until 1967, expressed a key social and political aspiration – an egalitarianism of white male workers from which Aboriginal people were by definition erased. The exclusion of Indigenous people from full legal citizenship and census-taking until overturned by referendum in 1967, after the great influxes of post-war migration, gives some indication of the political realities of this silence and the extent of Aboriginal powerlessness within the Australian

finance for Soviet arms deliveries (Sela 1998: 145). Not just the shared threat but also a shared resource, the new oil wealth from the price boom unleashed by the oil embargo generated interdependence between the Arab states. The expectation that the new wealth would be shared with the states that had fought and sacrificed for the common Arab cause was partly realised by significant transfers of wealth to the latter, the migration of excess labour to the oil producers and the transfer of remittances home. The ‘Arab Cold War’ was decisively buried as the conservative
