L veil d un continent
Terre d’avenir puis de promesses déçues, l’Amérique latine constitue désormais un pôle de puissance incontournable dans le monde. Riche d’immenses ressources naturelles et énergétiques, elle contribue à la diversification des flux d’échanges commerciaux, financiers et humains. Cette dynamique inédite sert le développement d’un projet géopolitique de coopération Sud/Sud qui consacre l’avènement progressif d’un monde multipolaire dont l’Asie sera le principal moteur et où la Chine disputera la prééminence aux États-Unis. L’Amérique latine, longtemps considérée comme l’« extrême Occident », se libère ainsi progressivement de son ancrage européen ; elle renforce les formes de son intégration régionale pour peser significativement dans les affaires du monde. Quels sont les contours de cette nouvelle modernité latino-américaine ? Où se situent les points de rupture et les éléments de continuité avec le passé ? L’axe Sud/Sud offre-t-il une alternative au système mondial actuel ? Les expériences politiques et démocratiques progressistes en cours dans plusieurs pays sont-elles durables ? Les États-Unis et l’Europe sont-ils disposés à laisser le champ libre à la Chine dans la région ? Approfondir l’ensemble de ces problématiques, telle est l’intention de cet ouvrage.
The Crisis of Neoliberalism
This is a work of empirical economics, in which Dumenil and Levy adduce a wide range of evidence to argue that capitalism has entered a phase characterized by rapid technological change, increasing returns to capital, and financial instability. While the authors focus on the interpretation of contemporary capitalism, they also integrate an historical perspective, showing that in the immediate post-World-War II era from 1945 till 1975, now considered a golden age of capitalism in which economic growth was high, inflation low, and income inequality decreasing, returns to capital decreased. In the 1970s this trend reversed, and real interest rates started rising, returns to capital increased, and income inequality widened. This cycle occurred in earlier eras, including one that began in the late nineteenth century and ended in The Great Depression. The authors argue that the similarity between the late nineteenth early 20th century and the past two decades is remarkable. Following the depression of the 1890s, more favorable profitability trends were established as a result of the managerial revolution, in the context of the original assertion of the political and economic hegemony of finance. This course of capitalism culminated in The Great Depression. Will the second hegemony of finance end as the first one did in collapse? The authors do not conclude that a crisis similar to the Great Depression is on the agenda, but a major adjustment will be required. Whether it is a new phase of neoliberalism or a new distinct social order is an open question.
Assessing Maritime Disputes in East Asia
Combining practical and theoretical approaches, this book addresses the political, legal and economic implications of maritime disputes in East Asia. The maritime disputes in East Asia have multiplied over the past few years, in parallel with the economic growth of the countries in the region, the rise of nationalist movements, fears and sometimes fantasies regarding the emergence of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) as a global power, increasing military expenses, as well as speculations regarding the potential resources in various disputed islands. These disputes, however, are not new and some have been the subject of contention and the cause of friction for decades, if not centuries in a few cases. Offering a robust analysis, this volume explores disputes through the different lenses of political science, international law, history and geography, and introduces new approaches in particular to the four important disputes concerning Dokdo/Takeshima, Senkaku/Diaoyu, Paracels and Spratlys. Utilising a comparative approach, this book identifies transnational trends that occur in the different cases and, therefore, at the regional level, and aims to understand whether the resurgence of maritime disputes in East Asia may be studied on a case by case basis, or should be analysed as a regional phenomenon with common characteristics. This book will be of interest to students of Asian Politics, Maritime Security, International Security, Geopolitics and International Relations in general.
The Wretched of the Earth
Frantz Fanon was one of the twentieth century’s most important theorists of revolution, colonialism, and racial difference, and this, his masterwork, is a classic alongside Orientalism and The Autobiography of Malcolm X. The Wretched of the Earth is a brilliant analysis of the psychology of the colonized and their path to liberation. Bearing singular insight into the rage of colonized peoples and the role of violence in historical change, the book also incisively attacks postindependence disenfranchisement of the masses by the elite on one hand, and intertribal and interfaith animosities on the other. A veritable handbook of social reorganization for leaders of emerging nations, The Wretched of the Earth has had a major impact on civil rights, anticolonialism, and black-consciousness movements around the world. This new translation updates its language for a new generation of readers and its lessons are more vital now than ever.
This volume deals with the threat to democracy and the rule of law posed by organised violence in Latin America.
Three parallel wars were fought in the latter half of the 20th century in El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua. These wars were long and brutal, dividing international opinion sharply between US support for dictatorial regimes and the USSR's sponsorship of guerilla fighters. This book examines this topic.
The Royal Family
Since the publication of his first book in 1987, William T. Vollmann has established himself as one of the most fascinating and unconventional literary figures on the scene today. Named one of the twenty best writers under forty by the New Yorker in 1999, Vollmann received the best reviews of his career for The Royal Family, a searing fictional trip through a San Francisco underworld populated by prostitutes, drug addicts, and urban spiritual seekers. Part biblical allegory and part skewed postmodern crime novel, The Royal Family is a vivid and unforgettable work of fiction by one of today's most daring writers.

The Globalization of NATO
Spawned by the Cold War, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's existence was justified as a guarantee against any Soviet threats towards Western Europe. That raison d'être is long gone with the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. Nevertheless NATO has expanded relentlessly eastward towards its former enemy, even though Communism has disappeared. Yugoslavia marked a turning point for the Atlantic Alliance and its mandate. The organization moved from a defensive posture to an offensive one under the pretexts of humanitarianism. Starting from Yugoslavia, NATO began its journey towards globalization, taking on a broader area of operations outside of the European continent, leading to NATO missions in East Africa, Afghanistan, and most strikingly, Libya.Increasingly symbolic of U.S. militarism and missile diplomacy, NATO has acted as an arm of the Pentagon and formally or informally moved into combat zones where the U.S. and its allies have been combatants. as the world increasingly militarizes through the globalization of NATO and the formation of new military counter-alliance.
