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.

British Sailors in Indian Stinking Jails!

By: Ved from Victoria Institutions

I started by schooling in a Cambridge-University certification school (I think), wherein initially the teachers and priests were more or less Anglo-Indians of the English variety. (There is the Indian variety of Anglo-Indians also. The first version has vanished from India now). However, after around after around one and half years of such schooling, the Anglo-Indian group vanished and a native converted-to-Christian priests...

The issue in all the essays is the connection between the energy policies of various countries, their foreign policies, and the wars that break out at various parts of the globe, since all three are closely related. I describe many economic interests and many alliances in my essays. But alliances change and so do economic interest. Therefore what is more important for the reader is to have an idea of the global resources i.e. oil and natural gas in my essays, because glo...

By: Iakovos Alhadeff

Libya is the richest African country in oil reserves and one of the richest in the world. The following seven chapters are independent essays that were written on different dates, and therefore you should not expect some kind of connection between the chapters. On the other hand all chapters deal with same issue, i.e. the Libyan energy industry, her foreign policies, and her wars for oil, and therefore they are somehow connected.

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.

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...
