            Histoire socialiste de la Franc contemporaine 1789-1900: Tome 2 La Legislative 1791-1792 (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Jean JAURES decrit dans Histoire socialiste de la France contemporaine la Revolution francaise a l'aube de l'emergence d'une nouvelle classe sociale: la Bourgeoisie. Il apporte un soin particulier a decrire les rouages economiques et sociaux de l'ancien regime. C'est du point de ...vue socialiste que Jean Jaures veut raconter au peuple, aux ouvriers et aux paysans, les evenements qui se sont deroules de 1789 a la fin du XIXeme siecle. Pour lui la revolution francaise a prepare indirectement l'avenement du proletariat et a realise les deux conditions essentielles du socialisme: la democratie et le capitalisme mais elle a ete en fond l'avenement politique de la classe bourgeoise. Mais en quoi l'etude de Jean Jaures est une histoire socialiste? L'homme doit travailler pour vivre, il doit transformer la nature et c'est son rapport a la transformation de la nature qui va etre l'equation primordiale et le prisme par lequel l'humanite doit etre etudiee. De cette exploitation de la nature va naitre une societe dans laquelle va emerger des rapports sociaux dictes par la coexistence de plusieurs classes sociales: les forces productives. Ce nouveau systeme ne peut s'epanouir qu'en renversant les structures politiques qui l'en empechent. La revolution francaise est nee des contradictions entre l'evolution des forces productives la bourgeoisie et des structures politiques heritees de la noblesse feodale. Il ne faut pas se meprendre L'histoire socialiste n'est pas une lecture orientee politiquement mais peut etre apercu comme une interpretation economique de l'histoire. Il s'agit d'un ouvrage complexe. L'histoire du socialisme demande du temps et de la concentration mais c'est une lecture primordiale et passionnee de la Revolution francaise. L'Histoire socialiste de 1789-1900 sous la direction de Jean Jaures se compose de 12 tomes, a savoir: Tome 1: Introduction, La Constituante (1789-1791) Tome 2: La Legislative (1791-1792) Tome 3: La Convention I (1792) Tome 4: La Conventi

            On November 8th, 1926 Antonio Gramsci, a newspaper editor, Marxist thinker, and elected member of the parliament for the Italian Communist Party was arrested by the Italian Fascist police despite his parliamentary immunity, and sent to the Special Tribunal for the Defense of the ...State. The party was outlawed by Benito Mussolini during his regime, and Mr. Gramsci was sentenced to twenty years in prison for subversive propaganda against the power of state. He was relocated from one penitentiary onto another for precautionary measures; Mr. Stalin himself made several attempts to negotiate Gramsci's freedom via Comintern because Gramsci's Russian wife Julia was the daughter of Apollon Schucht, leader of the CPSU and Lenin's friend. Unfortunately Mussolini refused to negotiate and Gramsci spent years behind bars writing erudite essays on Marxist Theory, political leadership, and analysis of culture; and numerous letters to his family and relatives. According to speculations, Gramsci was betrayed by a quorum of undesirables within his own party with a controversial letter which went straight into the hands of the political police. He died in a private clinic in Rome during probation eleven years later, right before the collapse of Fascism.

            Este relato de um homem que acabou se distinguindo do resto das elites de seu pais como alguem que nao aceitaria a ocupacao da Nicaragua e que nao faria o papel de cachorro de colo ou fantoche, explica de maneira muito simples as nuances na evolucao socio-politica do pais centro-...americano que influenciou sobremaneira outras lutas na America Latina.Em Augusto C. Sandino, vemos o desenvolvimento de uma lenda que nasceu de origens humildes e cujo senso de justica o guiou em sua jornada epica de resistencia as forcas opressoras de seu pais. Mesmo que sua traicao e assassinato tenham sido traumaticos para aqueles que o viam como um farol de esperanca em um Hemisferio Ocidental injusto, a letargia politica que se seguiu foi de curta duracao, pois seu legado gerou um fervor de libertacao que transformou o cenario politico da Nicaragua e o resto da America Latina.

            Having been taught patriotic ideas from an early age, then having served in the military and taking the oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic several times, the author has written this book after having to redefine his beliefs regardin...g patriotism based on new evidence he has encountered. In other words, his patriotism has evolved to the point of getting back to the basics regarding the Constitution and Bill of Rights, the foundation of American life, yet they have taken serious hits since, and because of 9/11/01. This book is an attempt to share with his fellow Americans things that have been, apparently, deliberately withheld from the general public regarding what really happened that day and why. One must admit that it is strange that we have always seemed to have an enemy, or a boogeyman, as Mobster Sam Giancana once related: The Fat Cats were fully aware that Americans will do anything for Patriotism, hence, you always must provide them with a 'boogeyman.' They won't overwork themselves just to make huge profits for 'fat cats' for any other reason, so new enemies always have to be found or created. Wars are big business for a certain group of wealthy elites who value profits above human life. This book explores this inhumane idea and much, much more!

            Facing discrimination from fellow members in unions, organizations, and political parties, Militant Puerto Ricans tells the story of how Puerto Ricans in the United States participated in traditional politics, while creating clandestine organizations. By 1965, Puerto Ricans had c...reated over six-hundred different political and communal organizations, with different approaches, methods, and tactics. Many organizations focused on improving conditions in Puerto Rican communities, and others aimed at freeing Puerto Rico from its colonial status. Militant Puerto Ricans focuses on the formation and the strategies of the Young Lords Party (YLP), the Puerto Rican Socialist Party (PSP), the Puerto Rican National Left Movement (or the Comite MINP ), the Puerto Rican Student Union (PRSU), the Fuerzas Armadas de Liberacion Nacional (FALN), the Nationalist Party (PN) and the Puerto Rican Independence Party (PIP). Militant Puerto Ricans tells the story of how leaders and activists who belonged to these organizations, constantly travelled between Puerto Rico and the U.S., strengthening the bonds between activists and organizations in and outside Puerto Rico. Additionally, Militant Puerto Ricans tells us the story of how clandestine organizations, such as the FALN and the Macheteros, organized to make others conscious about Puerto Rico's colonial status. Militant Puerto Ricans' timeline starts in 1868, when Puerto Ricans rebelled against the Spanish colonial government in El Grito de Lares. After El Grito, rebel bands in Puerto Rico continued their resistance by assaulting landowners, burning their fields, and destroying credit books. These bands were known as the Tiznados, who despite their efforts, did not organize into a large-scale revolutionary movement. Puerto Rico would not see a large revolutionary movement until the 1930s, when Pedro Albizu Campos was elected the president of the Nationalist Party, a working-class movement that threatened corporate and colonial powers.

            When battlefield prowess and political manipulation are not enough to achieve peace through victory, we summon our best and brightest to negotiate an end; we celebrate peace settlements; and we give prizes, if not to victors, then to visionaries. We exalt peace as a human achieve...ment, and justly so. But the reality of peace is flawed. The rewards of peace are elusive for the men and women who live in the post-conflict societies of our time. Why is it so difficult to make a good peace when it is so easy to imagine? That is the question behind Imagine: Reflections on Peace. In this stunning collection, photographic essays make grippingly palpable the stakes during war and peace. Samantha Power, former US Ambassador to the United Nations, Justice Richard Goldstone, and Jonathan Powell, chief negotiator for the Northern Ireland Good Friday agreement, are joined by world-renown writers in revealing the complexities of redemption and rebuilding in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cambodia, Colombia, Lebanon, Northern Ireland, and Rwanda. We hear first person accounts of survival and the search for inner peace, bringing the big picture to a personal level. With added insights from scholars and practitioners, the book offers a rare and fascinating glimpse into the unvarnished story of peace and a window into what it takes for societies and individuals to move forward after unspeakable brutality.
