Healing Ukraine - A Study of Political Corruption, Human Rights Violations and Violence against Civil Society in Ukraine By Dr. Mark O'Doherty

A Ukrainian anti-corruption activist and political advisor, Kateryna Handziuk was attacked with sulphuric acid in July 2018, and died from her injuries on 4 November 2018. Five suspects have been... More > arrested, including a former police officer believed to have led the assault. But it does not appear any of those arrested ordered the attack... The killing of Kateryna Handzyuk is only the tip of the iceberg in a series of more than fifty-five attacks against civil society activists in Ukraine since 2017; for which only a handful of actual perpetrators have been arrested and none of the people who ordered the attacks have been identified. Critical, but also deeply sensitive and humane, this book explores social scientific and ethical approaches, so that fundamental human rights can be restored in Ukraine. Social challenges – such as abuse of power and political corruption – are also explored in this work, as corruption still highlights one of Ukraine's main problems; Ukraine being the most corrupt country in Europe.< Less

The Revolution of Civil Society. Challenging Neo-Liberal Orthodoxy: The Development of the Progressive State By Michael Lloyd
Paperback: $14.87
Prints in 3-5 business days
In this book, Michael Lloyd sets out a comprehensive analysis and counter-narrative to the neo-liberal market capitalist orthodoxy. He uses Friedrich Hayek, Margaret Thatcher's favourite adviser, as... More > a 'stalking horse'. The aim is to argue against not only neo-liberalism, but also its philosophical and political antecedents deriving from John Locke and from Adam Smith, but reflected in Hayek and other neo-liberal advocates to the present day. A new social enlightenment is required, one which sweeps away the foundations of the liberal individualist enlightenment which persist today in the form of neo-liberal, market economics and its philosophical underpinning. In so doing it will also attack the false prospectus of Trump, Le Pen, Farage, and other populist nationalists. However, it will also challenge some of the shibboleths of the Left such as its naive anti-elitism, and its current preoccupation with identity politics rather than class politics.< Less
Civilization, Salvation or Domination By Dario Lisiero
Paperback: $19.48
Prints in 3-5 business days
It is this author's contention that the root of all man-made disasters and sufferings is the seemingly unstoppable urge of domination in man. The virus of domination infects the whole society and... More > this global village seems unable to find a cure or an antidote. According to St. Augustine this wasn't God's original plan. God had given man dominion over all creation, animals included, but not over man. Subjection of man to man had been brought about by human sin. Augustine acknowledges the existence of the domination factor as something not only unavoidable (after the original sin) but also as something necessary. This admission of human domination and of his necessity "ratione peccati" is a real eye-opener. However controversial this assertion, the overall presence of domination will be the basic interpretational key of the present study. Only through these lenses it will be possible to make some sense of historical people that otherwise would be incomprehensible.< Less
The Law of Civilization and Decay (Illustrated) By Brooks Adams

“When the Romans first emerged from the mist of fable, they were already a race of land-owners who held their property in severalty, and, as the right of alienation was established, the... More > formation of relatively large estates had begun. The ordinary family, however, held, perhaps, twelve acres, and, as the land was arable, and the staple grain, it supported a dense rural population. The husbandmen who tilled this land were of the martial type, and, probably for that reason, though supremely gifted as administrators and soldiers, were ill-fitted to endure the strain of the unrestricted economic competition of a centralized society. Consequently their conquests had hardly consolidated before decay set in, a decay whose causes may be traced back until they are lost in the dawn of history.”< Less
