Prefects, Governors and Commissioners: Territorial Representatives of the State in Europe

Prefects, Governors and Commissioners: Territorial Representatives of the State in Europe by Gildas Tanguy
English | PDF | 2021 | 469 Pages | ISBN : 3030593959 | 5.1 MB

“Tanguy and Eymeri-Douzans have assembled a timely collection of papers on prefects and their equivalents in Europe. This book fills a gap in the literature, demonstrating that even countries favouring decentralization also have forms of control from the centre. It is even more interesting by its anchoring in administrative history and the patterns of diffusion of the prefectoral role.” – B. Guy Peters, University of Pittsburgh

Slavery's Reach: Southern Slaveholders in the North Star State

Slavery's Reach: Southern Slaveholders in the North Star State by Christopher Lehman
English | January 11th, 2020 | ISBN: 1681341352 | 224 pages | EPUB | 6.15 MB

From the 1840s through the end of the Civil War, leading Minnesotans invited slaveholders and their wealth into the free territory and free state of Minnesota, enriching the area's communities and residents. Dozens of southern slaveholders and people raised in slaveholding families purchased land and backed Minnesota businesses. Slaveholders' wealth was invested in some of the state's most significant institutions and provided a financial foundation for several towns and counties. And the money generated by Minnesota investments flowed both ways, supporting some of the South's largest plantations.

Breaking the Silence recovers the conflicted politics of Aboriginal affairs in the first decades of the twentieth century.

In The Third Revolution, eminent China scholar Elizabeth C. Economy provides an incisive look at the transformative changes underway in China today. Chinese leader Xi Jinping has unleashed a powerful set of political and economic reforms: the centralization of power under Xi, himself, the expansion of the Communist Party's role in Chinese political, social, and economic life, and the construction of a virtual wall of regulations to control more closely the exchange of ideas and capital between China and the outside world.

The Jewish State: The Historic Essay that Led to the Creation of the State of Israel by Theodor Herzl
English | November 5th, 2019 | ISBN: 1510755314 | 96 pages | EPUB | 0.48 MB

Originally published in 1896 as Der Judenstaat, The Jewish State has taken its place among the likes of The Communist Manifesto and Common Sense as polemic writings which have changed modern history. Theodor Herzl's advocacy for a separate, independent Jewish state as a remedy for centuries of hostility and persecution served as the basis for modern Zionism. And though his vision would not be realized in his lifetime, it did set the course for the creation of the Israel we know today.
