these systems to attain power and legitimacy. When considered together, Chapters 3 through 6 in this book therefore extend Bloom’s (2016) perspective on how this has occurred in Western history. As elaborated in Chapters 1 and 2 through philosophical and policy examples, with regard to neoliberalism’s example of the ‘hegemony of power and resistance’, ‘if the Enlightenment was its catalyst, colonialism its internalization, then capitalism represents its materialization’ ( Bloom 2016 , 88). Building on this assessment to consider the empirical circumstances of neo

if Egypt could be convinced not to attack or interfere with free navigation. In principle, the problem should have been brought before the Security Council. However, Chuvakhin, Soviet ambassador to Israel, declared wholehearted support for Syrian and Egyptian policy. The cause of the current situation, he claimed, was the Israeli government’s hostile propaganda. Although the situation was serious

place early after the emergence of the Russian Federation as a proto-democracy. This is rare. In spite of the literature on voting and violence that links problematic transitions to a predisposition to militarism (primarily as a foreign policy strategy by disgruntled former elites), 1 it is unusual for democratising states to turn to violence in order to silence opponents at home or abroad. The second

Rumaysah ‘al-Britani’s) online ebook, A brief guide to the Islamic State ( Rumaysah 2015 ), which concludes with a chapter entitled ‘Capitalism is dead’. In this chapter, Rumaysah uses popular political rhetoric to condemn monetarist economic policies stemming from the introduction of neoliberal programmes by the US and UK governments in the early 1980s, stating: ‘in the last fifty years or so we have seen developing countries in South America, Africa and Asia feel the brunt of trickledown economics and bad advice, and it has crippled them’ ( Rumaysah 2015 , 40

Nazis’ eugenics policies. It is from this perspective that Robert L. Sinsheimer argues: ‘[t]he old eugenics would have required a continual selection for breeding of the fit, and a culling of the unfit. The new eugenics would permit in principle the conversion of all the unfit to the highest genetic level’ (Sinsheimer, 1992 , p. 145). This thesis has been subjected to numerous criticisms, as the line

Tanya Dramac Jiries

after the war’s end, Bosnia held its first democratic elections, internally displaced persons and refugees began returning back to their pre-war homes, and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia issued the first indictments for crimes against humanity. A number of foreign fighters from North Africa, the Middle East and the Gulf States who had fought for BiH in the 1990s war received honorary citizenship for their services. After the US government launched a global ‘war on terror’ after 9/11, Bosnia again became a country of interest. After the

One of the main problems is undoubtedly the fact that some capacity-restoring technologies may result in allowing the beneficiary to gain supernatural advantages over others. This was notoriously alleged by certain individuals in the case of the former South African runner Oscar Pistorius, who, after being born

The aim of the New Ireland Forum was to bring up to date the policy positions of Irish nationalism, South and North, relating to Northern Ireland, as a springboard for fresh negotiations with the British. It was vital to obtain an agreed final report from the constituent political parties with their historically opposed outlooks and positions. It was a personal initiative of mine that led to the
