Politics (108 Books)


Politics as a category is generally applied to the art or science of running governmental or state affairs, including behavior within civil governments, but also applies to institutions, fields, and special interest groups such as the corporate, academic, and religious segments of society. It consists of social relations involving authority or power and to the methods and tactics used to formulate and apply policy. Modern political discourse focuses on democracy and the relationship between people and politics. It is thought of as the way we choose government officials and make decisions about public policy.

الإمامة في فكر أهل البيت عليهم السلام لكل نظام سياسي نظرية على أساسها يُخاطب الجمهور المؤمن بالنظرية أو المتعاطف معها، وقبل تولي الحكم ـ عادة أو بعده في بعض الحالات ـ يحاول أرباب السياسة جمع الأتباع حول نظريتهم لتبنيها والدفاع عنها، والإمامة هي المسألة التي كانت على مر العصور مورد الصراع بين المسلمين. واختلفت الآراء في كون الإمامة من شؤون المكلفين لتكون من الفروع ام انها من الشؤون الإلهية فتكون من أصول الدين. وذهبت مدارس أصحاب الحديث والمعتزلة والخوارج إلى كون الإمامة...

Beyond Apologies : Defining and Achieving an Economics of Wellbeing

By: Debra Ann Efroymson

Beyond Apologies presents a number of myths about mainstream economics and clarifies their focus on consumption rather than on wellbeing. Each myth is followed by a discussion of a different way of addressing the issue. The book then presents various practical ways of remedying the situation. Topics covered include GDP, economic growth, microcredit, aid, and the Bretton Woods Organizations (the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and World Trade Organisation). The b...

Society cannot get to a better place without looking at what is holding it back. Conventional beliefs about economics limit people to a few discourses and solutions that, rather than resolve problems, increase their magnitude. It is thus critically important to identify some widely accepted myths that underlie current economic discourse and to offer a more helpful and hopeful way of looking at the issues. Being free from dominant myths can lead to exciting new possibilities.

Außer Kontrolle : Zweiter Zwischenbericht der Piratenfraktion zum ...

By: Dr. Martin Delius; Benedict Ugarte-Chacon

Der zweite Zwischenbericht der Piratenfraktion im Abgeordnetenhaus von Berlin heißt »Außer Kontrolle«. Nach 48 Vernehmungen und Auswertung von 3600 Seiten Vernehmungsprotokollen sowie etwa 1400 Aktenordnern, DVDs und Parlamentsunterlagen als Grundlage der Beweisführung, verdichtet sich für uns ein Bild von der Flughafengesellschaft und dem Projekt BER, das sich vor allem durch einen massiven Kontrollverlust auszeichnet, der sich über mehrere Ebenen erstreckte.

Im Januar 2014 veröffentlichte die Piratenfraktion ihren ersten Zwischenbericht zur Arbeit des Untersuchungsausschusses zur Aufklärung des BER-Skandals unter dem Namen „unten bleiben“. Seitdem ist eine Menge passiert und der Ausschuss hat insbesondere bei den ofenen Fragen zur Steuerung des Projekts BER, zur Verantwortlichkeit der Geschäftsführung der Flughafengesellschaft Berlin Brandenburg GmbH und zum Informationstransport während der heißen Phase des Projekts in...

The Intra-Arab Oil War : 1950-1970

By: Iakovos Alhadeff

Egypt is the largest and most important country of the Arab world. However Egypt is very poor in oil and natural gas reserves, at least when compared to the other Arab countries of the Persian Gulf and North Africa. In the 1950s and 1960s, Gamal Nasser, an Egyptian military officer, tried to unite all Arabs in one country, under his leadership, in order for Egypt to control the oil of the Persian Gulf. This essay briefly describes Nasser’s efforts in the 50s and 60s, ...

Orwell's Warning : The Greatest Amerikan Paradox

By: Erik Blaire

In his classic, 1984, George Orwell selected certain features of his society as a basic skeleton, then fleshed political fiction over the bones. Many parallels between 1984 and the modern world have long been recognized. In Orwell's Warning: The Greatest Amerikan Paradox, Erik Blaire compares these features to the paradoxes of American politics, violence, and religion. Finding they are inseparable, he proposes that American freedom must therefore also be paradoxical. Arm...

"In our age there is no such thing as “keeping out of politics.” All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia." —George Orwell, Politics and the English Language (1946) Imagine, if you would, an average American. We’ll call him “Ed.” Ed is in his mid-thirties, works in an office, and is currently standing at the paper shredder. He’s holding a stack of paper in one arm while feeding the paper shred...

The US Constitution - Here Is What It Says

By: Don Thayer

There is no Constitutional provision for "original intent" or judicial interpretation. Although it was written over two hundred years ago using archaic terminology, there is no real ambiguity about the meaning of the text. This book emphasizes that text as written.

Article 1, Section 8: "Section 8 of Article 1 deserves some extra time and discussion. Each clause delegates a specific power to the federal government. The first clause begins with “The Congress shall have Power To,” and each clause adds an additional power of Congress. These powers apply only the federal government, not the states." "The relevance of this section is in relation to the rest of the Constitution, as well as the Bill of Rights. The Tenth Amendment state...

USA Russia & China in the Middle East : Alliances & Conflicts

By: Iakovos Alhadeff

There is a rumor that it is very difficult to understand the Middle East. However this is not true. It is difficult to understand the Middle East only when the emphasis is not on oil and natural gas. If oil and natural gas are taken into account it is very easy to analyze the Middle East. Because the Middle East is simply a region where the local players are fighting to sell their oil and natural gas, and the foreign players are fighting to buy this oil and natural ga...
