From Odessa With Love: Political and Literary Essays in Post-Soviet Ukraine

Author: 

Davidzon, Vladislav, Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief, The Odessa Review, European Culture Critic, Tablet Magazine

"Born in Tashkent, raised in Moscow and New York City, an editor in Odessa, a correspondent in Paris, there seems nowhere Davidzon hasn't been, no one he hasn't met. The result is a distinctive voice and eye, an eclectic mix of the cultural critic, the political analyst and the liberal cosmopolitan, evident from the first page of this delightful book"

International Organizations and Reparations (W.B. Sheridan Law Books)

Author: 

Liakopoulos, Dimitris, Tufts University

In the first part of this book, noted legal scholar Dimtris Liakopoulos deals with reconstructing the legal regulatory framework governing human rights violations in the activities of organizations. After identifying rules that are generally applicable to organizations’ offenses and govern the profile of reparations, this study assesses primary rules that guarantee the right to an effective remedy. Liakopoulos then moves on to how this works in practice, examining the reparations obtainable by an individual in disputes between states and organizations.

To Tell the Truth: Fifty Years of Politics in the Promised Land

Author: 

Kuhrt, David

Credentials: 

Author of "Wittgenstein the Tartar", and "The Trojan War Has Not Been Won"

This collection of essays reflect the prolific philosopher David Kuhrt’s prescient thesis that subjectivity can be bypassed, thereby exploding the myth of positivist philosophy. In bypassing intuition with abstract ideas, “science,” as we have described it, has informed the notion of Western imperialism in the Middle East, from the dogmatic Christianity of the medieval Papacy through transnational corporate investment today.

Politics, Culture, and Origins in Nigeria: The Igbo and Their Nri Neighbors

Author: 

Nwaezeigwe, Nwankwo, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Senior Lecturer, Institute of African Studies, University of Nigeria, Nsukka

Nwankwo Nwaezeigwe’s revelatory study of the Igbo people and their Nri neighbors presents a paradigm shift in the interpretation of Igbo history and culture. British colonial ethnography held that the Nri, who form part of a larger Igbo subgroup named Umunri, are the scions of a remote historical kingdom that once ruled the entire Igbo land. It further advanced the thesis that before the coming of the Nri, the Igbo as an ethnic group had no culture defined as Igbo except what the Nri introduced to become what is defined today as Igbo culture.

Author: 

Gassanly, Murad PhD, Cardiff University

Credentials: 

City Councillor, City of Westminster (London)

A History of International Oil Politics is both an argument for multi-theoretical pluralism and a proposal for a theory-synergetic approach in international relations. Murad Gassanly, a distinguished international relations scholar and rising British politician, explores how international relations paradigms could be utilized in approaching the vital field of international oil politics, specifically historical issues of international energy politics and comparative case studies of energy transmission networks – the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Pipeline and the Southern Gas Corridor.

Kings and Conquistadors: Spain’s American Empire

Author: 

Thornton, Richard C., Professor of History and International Affairs, George Washington University

Spain’s American empire began as the serendipitous outgrowth of the search for a shortcut to China. That search derived from two mid-fifteenth-century developments: the Ming Dynasty’s decision to adopt a silver standard for its medium of exchange and the Ottoman Turks’ capture of Constantinople in 1453. China’s great demand for silver and the disruption of the Silk Road drove the need to find alternative access to China.
