Abstract

A Cape of Asia collects eighteen of Wesseling’s finest essays on European History, clustered around three concerns: The Wider View, or the historical European perspective on globalization, migration and decolonization; Europe’s Identity, reflecting the shift from Eurocentrism to Americanization and Europe’s acceptance of Japan, China and India as new key players in the global economy; and European Ideas about Education, Science, and Art. The third section includes the articles ‘Johan Huizinga and the Spirit of the Nineteen Thirties’ and ‘The Expansion of Europe and the Development of Science and Technology’. A small cape of Asia was how Paul Valéry described Europe in 1919 – a pointed summary of the new mood that came over Europe in the interbellum years. Wesseling’s essays hold to the original sense of the word: personal reflections on vast subjects written for an intellectual and interested but not necessarily specialized readership.

Abstract

The importance of energy to the functioning of any economy has meant that energy industries are amongst the most regulated of industries. What might appear to be purely private decisions are made within a complex and evolving web of government regulations. Petropolitics: Petroleum Development, Markets and Regulations, Alberta as an Illustrative History provides an economic history of the petroleum industry in Alberta as well as a detailed analysis of the operation of the markets for Alberta oil and natural gas, and the main governmental regulations (apart from environmental regulations) faced by the industry. The tools used within this study are applicable to oil and gas industries throughout the world.Winner, 2014 Book of the Year, Petroleum History Society

Abstract

Long Night of the Tankers presents a fresh account of a lesser-known but critical component of the Atlantic naval theatre during World War II. Using war diaries, after-action reports, and first-hand accounts, authors Bercuson and Herwig examine the story behind Operation Neuland, the German plan to interrupt vital oil supplies from reaching the United States and the United Kingdom by preventing Allied oil tankers from leaving refineries in the Caribbean. The story begins in February 1942 and follows this German attempt to scuttle the Allied war machine through to the end of the war. Told largely from the German perspective, it details the planning and execution of the Germans and the diplomatic, political, and military responses of the Allies, particularly the United States, to overcome the German effort.Winner, 2014 John Lyman Book Award for U.S. Naval History (North American Society for Oceanic History)

Abstract

Neste nosso atribulado e turbulento século XX a criação do Estado de Israel é sem dúvida um acontecimento marcante. Com isso concretizou-se um sonho, um ideal, uma aspiração quase bimilenar. Foi precedido, porém, por um período – poderíamos chamá-lo de preparatório – longo e difícil, repleto de obstáculos, desilusões e sacrifícios. [trecho retirado da introdução do livro]

Abstract

Este livro deriva diretamente do amor de um brasileiro pelo Brasil, da solicitude de um americano pela América. Começou no momento indeterminado em que nasceram esses sentimentos; exprime um pouco o desejo de ver esta pátria feliz, próspera, adiantada e livre. Foram esses sentimentos que me arrastaram o espírito para refletir sobre essas coisas, e o fizeram trabalhar essas ideias – o desejo vivo de conhecer os motivos dos males de que nos queixamos todos. Desse modo, as notações, as analogias, as observações, as reflexões se acumularam.[Trecho retirado da advertência do livro]

Abstract

The topic of this book, the digital divide, refers to the unequal distribution of resources associated with information and communication technology between countries and within societies. We will explore how one factor, in this case information technology, can potentially support contradictory tendencies: towards greater freedom and social participation and to deeper social inequality and new forms of concentration of power (excerpt taken from the book's Introduction).

Abstract

As experiências pessoais e intelectuais que me levaram a escrever este livro tiveram início há mais de uma década, e se estenderam por toda a minha carreira, desde os tempos de bolsista da “Fulbright” até a etapa acadêmica. Sem dúvida, o argumento central amadureceu nestes últimos anos, da mesma forma que o Brasil, ele próprio, sofreu uma mudança significativa. No entanto, perdura até hoje um conjunto de impressões iniciais. [trecho retirado do prefácio do livro]
