... what people are saying about this book ...?A marvelous recounting of Ethiopian and world history during those years. Mandatory reading for anyone interested in Third World relations and certainly for anyone who seeks to understand contemporary Ethiopian or Horn of Africa affairs.??Foreign Service Journal?A significant primary source in its first hand account by a meticulously observant insider.??Foreign Affairs?Commands attention and respect. John Spencer?s personal, candid, and basically reliable record will have an honored place in the contemporary annals of that tortured country.??Times Literary Supplement?Spencer is one of the very few living people in a position to describe Ethiopia?s efforts to survive during those years.??Library Journal?Spencer was privy to many important decisions. Of particular interest is his account of Haile Sellassie?s disenchantment with the U.S.??Publisher?s Weekly?After the hard fate which befell the Emperor and his notables, Spencer is maybe the only one of the old regime?s key persons still alive. There is hardly a single page one would want to miss.??Sture Linner in Svenska Dagbladet?I found Ethiopia at Bay intensely interesting, sad and even tragic in the Greek mode. What a series of missed opportunities, anachronistic colonial arrogances, and western shortsightedness! The book would be enormously instructive to students of international relations generally.??Lincoln Gordon, former President, Johns Hopkins University?Valuable indeed, Especially significant is Spencer?s cogent analysis of the Emperor himself. Recommended for college, university, and larger public libraries.??Choice.

The bestselling author of No Logo shows how the global "free market" has exploited crises and shock for three decades, from Chile to Iraq In her groundbreaking reporting over the past few years, Naomi Klein introduced the term "disaster capitalism." Whether covering Baghdad after the U.S. occupation, Sri Lanka in the wake of the tsunami, or New Orleans post-Katrina, she witnessed something remarkably similar. People still reeling from catastrophe were being hit again, this time with economic "shock treatment," losing their land and homes to rapid-fire corporate makeovers. The Shock Doctrine retells the story of the most dominant ideology of our time, Milton Friedman's free market economic revolution. In contrast to the popular myth of this movement's peaceful global victory, Klein shows how it has exploited moments of shock and extreme violence in order to implement its economic policies in so many parts of the world from Latin America and Eastern Europe to South Africa, Russia, and Iraq. At the core of disaster capitalism is the use of cataclysmic events to advance radical privatization combined with the privatization of the disaster response itself. Klein argues that by capitalizing on crises, created by nature or war, the disaster capitalism complex now exists as a booming new economy, and is the violent culmination of a radical economic project that has been incubating for fifty years.

Christianity Book Burning And Censorship In Late Antiquity

The role of Christian institutions, writers and saints in the active suppression and destruction of books in Late Antiquity has received surprisingly little consideration. The author argues that texts and ideas from materialistic philosophical traditions were vulnerable to destruction, censorship or suppression through prohibition of the copying of manuscripts. This includes texts which were to become the basis for modern philosophy and science.

Die aktuelle Flüchtlingskrise ist vor allem den Ereignissen im Nahen Osten geschuldet. Dabei gerät eine langfristig viel bedrohlichere Entwicklung aus dem Blick: die Völkerwanderung Zehntausender Afrikaner nach Europa. Prinz Asfa-Wossen Asserate, einer der besten Kenner des afrikanischen Kontinents, beschreibt die Ursachen dieser Massenflucht und appelliert an die europäischen Staaten, ihre Afrikapolitik grundlegend zu ändern. Andernfalls werden es bald nicht Tausende, sondern Millionen von Flüchtlingen sein, werde diese größte Herausforderung Europas im 21. Jahrhundert in einer Katastrophe enden – für Afrika und Europa. Als langjähriger Afrika-Berater deutscher Unternehmen kennt Prinz Asserate die Missstände genau. Durch westliche Handelsbarrieren und Agrarprotektionen verliert Afrika jährlich das Doppelte dessen, was es an Entwicklungshilfe erhält. Zudem werden Gewaltherrscher hofiert. Gerade diejenigen, die der Kontinent für seine Entwicklung dringend braucht, kehren ihrer Heimat den Rücken und verschlimmern so die Situation vor Ort. Europa, so Asserate, muss Afrika als Partner behandeln und gezielt diejenigen Staaten unterstützen, die demokratische Strukturen aufbauen und in ihre Jugend investieren. Nur so kann es gelingen, den fluchtbereiten Afrikanern eine menschenwürdige Zukunft auf ihrem Kontinent zu ermöglichen.
