After the Flood: World Politics and Democracy in the Wake of Communism

After the Flood: World Politics and Democracy in the Wake of Communism by Bogdan Denitch
English | Dec. 1, 1992 | ISBN: 0819562564 | 177 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Denitch (sociology, CUNY) insists on the relevance of social democracy to the post-Communist world. His combination of jeremiad, analysis, and prescription is reminiscent of much left-wing writing, yet his contribution is distinctive. His criticism of the "antistatist" bias of the left is refreshing.

The 'Sailor Prince' in the Age of Empire: Creating a Monarchical Brand in Nineteenth-Century Europe

The 'Sailor Prince' in the Age of Empire: Creating a Monarchical Brand in Nineteenth-Century Europe By Miriam Magdalena Schneider
English | PDF | 2017 | 318 Pages | ISBN : 3319635999 | 5.14 MB

This book explores the puzzling phenomenon of the remarkable revival of monarchy in nineteenth-century Europe through a new prism: the public persona of the ‘Sailor Prince’. It highlights how four usually overlooked dynastic figures – the younger sons and brothers of monarchs such as Queen Victoria or Emperor William II – decisively helped to advertise their respective dynasties in the fiercely contested political and popular mass market, by aligning them with one of the most myth-invested cultural presences and power-political symbols of the Age of Empire: the navy.
