    This guide exposes the reality behind the war between capitalism and communism, two ideologies divided by the Iron Curtain.

  • The Other Cold Warby Heonik Kwon

    Columbia University Press 2010; US$ 54.99

    In this conceptually bold project, Heonik Kwon uses anthropology to interrogate the cold war's cultural and historical narratives. Adopting a truly panoramic view of local politics and international events, he challenges the notion that the cold war was a global struggle fought uniformly around the world and that the end of the war marked a radical,... more...

  • Archives of Authorityby Andrew N. Rubin

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 39.50

    Combining literary, cultural, and political history, and based on extensive archival research, including previously unseen FBI and CIA documents, Archives of Authority argues that cultural politics--specifically America's often covert patronage of the arts--played a highly important role in the transfer of imperial authority from Britain to the... more...

  • The New Muslim Brotherhood in the Westby Lorenzo Vidino

    Columbia University Press 2010; US$ 31.99

    In both Europe and North America, organizations tracing their origins back to the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist movements have rapidly evolved into multifunctional, richly funded organizations.

  • The Politics of Recessionby Maurice Mullard

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2012; US$ 40.00

    This timely, interdisciplinary book utilizes the tools of politics, economics and social policy to explore the recent global financial crisis, which, the author argues, irrefutably confirmed the absence of a public interest perspective in policy making. Maurice Mullard points out that recessions are not collective shared experiences. Recessions create... more...
