    Fourth Estate, Англійська, 2020, М'яка
    For millennia, dominant societies have had the habit of believing their own people to be the best, deep down: the more powerful they become, the more power begins to be framed as natural, as well as cultural. When you see how power has shaped the idea of race, then you can start to understand its meaning. In the twenty-first century, we like to believe that we have moved beyond scientific racism, that most people accept race as a social construct, not a biological one. But race science is experiencing a revival, fuelled by the misuse of... Далі

  2. Купити - Книжки - Salvador
     
    Джоан Дідіон
     
    Granta Books, Англійська, 2019, Тверда
    El Salvador, 1982, is at the height of a ghastly civil war. Joan Didion travels from battlefields to body dumps, interviews a puppet president, considers the distinctly Salvadorean meaning of the verb 'to disappear' and trains a merciless eye not only on the terror there but also on the depredations and evasions of US foreign policy. Salvador is a restless and unflinching masterclass in the art of reportage by one of the great literary stylists of the twentieth century.... Далі

  3. Купити - Книжки - In Command of History. Churchill Fighting And Writing Second World War
     
    Девід Рейнолдс
     
    Penguin, Англійська, 2005, М'яка
    Churchill fought the war twice over — as Prime Minister and again as its premier historian. In 1948-1954 he published six volumes of memoirs which secured his reputation and shaped our understanding of the conflict to this day. Using the drafts and correspondence for The Second World War, David Reynolds opens our eyes to Churchill the author and to the research «syndicate» on whom he depended. We see how the memoirs were censored by Whitehall to conceal secrets such as the codebreakers at Bletchley Park, and how Churchill himself censored... Далі

    Понад 50 годин інтерв’ю, записаних протягом 2014—2016 років, від анексії Криму до перемоги Джамали на Євробаченні Мустафа Джемілєв є національним лідером кримських татар, символом єднання депортованого народу і повернення його на рідну землю.

    Vivat, Російська, 2017, Тверда
    Автори видання «Мустафа Джемилев. Несгибаемый» – Севгіль Мусаєва і Алім Алієв – два з половиною роки працювали над цією книжкою. Вона зроблена у формі розгорнутого інтерв’ю з Джемілєвим, а матеріалом для неї стали більш як 50 годин розмов із цією людиною в різних містах і обставинах. Для авторів було важливо показати Джемілєва не тільки як політика, а також як непересічну людину, розкривши ціннісну систему лідера кримських татар. Пропозицію написати цю книжку висловило видавництво «Виват», яке видало книгу «Мустафа Джемилев.... Далі

    Пітер Мансфілд
     
    Penguin, Англійська, 2013, М'яка
    Over the centuries the Middle East has confounded the dreams of conquerors and peacemakers alike. This now-classic book, fully updated, follows the historic struggles of the region over the last two hundred years, from Napoleon's assault on Egypt, through the slow decline and fall of the Ottoman Empire, to the painful emergence of modern nations, the Palestinian question and Islamic resurgence.

    Hooman Majd, acclaimed journalist and New York-residing grandson of an Ayatollah, has a unique perspective on his Iranian homeland. In this vivid, warm and humorous insider's account, he opens our eyes to an Iran that few people see, meeting opium-smoking clerics, women cab drivers and sartorially challenged presidential officials, among others. Revealing a country where both t-shirt wearing teenagers and religious martyrs express pride in their Persian origins, that is deeply religious yet highly cosmopolitan, authoritarian yet reformist,...

    Шираз Махер
     
    Penguin, Англійська, 2017, М'яка
    No topic has gripped the public imagination so dramatically as the spectre of global jihadism. While much has been said about the way jihadists behave, their ideology remains poorly understood. Shiraz Maher charts the intellectual underpinnings of salafi-jihadism from its origins in the mountains of the Hindu Kush to the jihadist insurgencies of the 1990s and the 9/11 wars. His ground-breaking introduction to salafi-jihadism recalibrates our understanding of the ideas underpinning one of the most destructive political philosophies of our... Далі

    Нік Ллойд
     
    Penguin, Англійська, 2017, М'яка
    The Third Battle of Ypres was a «lost victory» for the British Army in 1917. Between July and November 1917, in a small corner of Belgium, more than 500000 men were killed or maimed, gassed or drowned — and many of the bodies were never found. The Ypres offensive represents the modern impression of the First World War: splintered trees, water-filled craters, muddy shell-holes. The climax was one of the worst battles of both world wars: Passchendaele. The village fell eventually, only for the whole offensive to be called off. But, as Nick... Далі

    At the end of the Cold War, we found ourselves living in a world with one superpower, the United States. Now, at the start of the twenty-first century, Parag Khanna argues powerfully that the moment of American supremacy is over, brought about by the increasing influence of what he terms the Second World: Eastern Europe, Central Asia, South America, the Middle East and East Asia. Travelling from Azerbaijan to Venezuela, China's hinterlands to Gaddafi's Libya, Parag Khanna explores these countries and their global significance. For as the three... Далі
