The Invisible Shining The Cult of Mátyás Rákosi in Stalinist Hungary, 1945-1956
Balazs Apor, "The Invisible Shining: The Cult of Mátyás Rákosi in Stalinist Hungary, 19451956"
English | 2017 | pages: 419 | ISBN: 9633861926 | PDF | 32,0 mb
This book offers a detailed analysis of the construction, reception, and eventual decline of the cult of the Hungarian Communist Party Secretary, Mátyás Rákosi, one of the most striking examples of orchestrated adulation in the Soviet bloc. While his cult never approached the magnitude of that of Stalin, Rákosi's ambition to outshine the other "best disciples" and become the best of the best was manifest in his diligence in promoting a Soviet-type ritual system in Hungary. The main argument of The Invisible Shining is that the cult of personality is not just a curious aspect of communist dictatorship, it is an essential element of it.

The Infinite Beauty of the World Dante's Encyclopedia and the Names of God (Leeds Studies on Dante)
The Infinite Beauty of the World: Dante's Encyclopedia and the Names of God (Leeds Studies on Dante) By Jason M. Baxter
2020 | 182 Pages | ISBN: 1788743954 | PDF | 14 MB
This book proposes a radically new interpretation of the Comedy's encyclopedism by focusing on Dante's work in light of the medieval imago mundi tradition. The work opens with a discussion of how the Florentine poet transgressed every generic boundary in his effort to gather «into one volume» a vast and varied set of creatures, places, landscapes, historical and mythological persons, weather conditions, and arts. It then goes on to show that this extraordinary encyclopedic breadth should be understood in the terms of Boethian and Augustinian spiritual exercises of envisioning the whole world in the mind's eye, which themselves became the interpretive framework for the spiritual ends behind medieval encyclopedic texts. By bringing attention to Latin Platonism and twelfth-century authors (such as Alan of Lille, Bernard Silvestris, William of Conches, Hugh of St. Victor, and Thierry of Chatres), this book provides compelling new readings of the De vulgari eloquentia, as well as provocative insights into key figures (such as Brunetto Latini, Pier della Vigna, and Ulysses) and key passages (Purgatorio 28, Paradiso 26, and Paradiso 33).

The Independent Voter
The Independent Voter
English | 2022 | ISBN: 9781003240808 | 197 pages | True PDF | 4.35 MB
Independent voters-the 40-50 percent of Americans who reject identification with either of the two major parties or with any party-are increasing in number and impact. Independents are determining the outcome of major elections, upending the long-held categories of political science. Drawing on historical and contemporary data (including survey data, participant observation, interviews, and current writings and scholarship) and providing timely new analysis, the authors argue that independents are an engine for a transformation of US democracy, perhaps even its saviors. Rather than "leaning" to a party or an ideology, independents vary on issues but share a deep distrust of the partisan system. What are the consequences of this distrust? What about shifting trends among Black, Latino, and Asian communities regarding party loyalty? What of young voters who eschew party identification wanting a different kind of political culture? For a wide variety of audiences, this book gives students, scholars, campaign professionals, activists, and media analysts an insight into current voting dynamics and future possibilities.

The Hidden Power Science, Scepticism and Psi
Brian Inglis, "The Hidden Power: Science, Scepticism and Psi"
English | ISBN: 1786770458 | 2018 | 336 pages | AZW3 | 2 MB
What exactly is psi? Why has the paranormal consistently been condemned by the scientific establishment? Why have its manifestations - ESP, psychokinesis, poltergeists and so on, which have been reported from every era, from every part of the world and all its walks of life - been so scathingly dismissed by supporters of scientism?

The Gospel of John A Hypertextual Commentary (European Studies in Theology, Philosophy and History of Religions)
The Gospel of John: A Hypertextual Commentary (European Studies in Theology, Philosophy and History of Religions) By Bartosz Adamczewski
2018 | 258 Pages | ISBN: 3631748930 | PDF | 16 MB
This monograph demonstrates that the Fourth Gospel is a result of highly creative, hypertextual reworking of the Acts of the Apostles. The detailed reworking consists of around 900 strictly sequentially organized thematic, and at times also linguistic correspondences between John and Acts. The strictly sequential, hypertextual dependence on Acts explains John's modifications of the synoptic material, relocations thereof, additions to it, and many other surprising features of the Fourth Gospel. Critical explanations of such features, which are offered in this study, ensure the reliability of the new solution to the problem of the relationship between John and the Synoptics.

The Globalisation of Urban Governance Legal Perspectives on Sustainable Development Goal 11
Helmut Philipp Aust, "The Globalisation of Urban Governance: Legal Perspectives on Sustainable Development Goal 11 "
English | ISBN: 1138485497 | 2018 | 280 pages | EPUB | 665 KB
The adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the UN General Assembly in 2015 represents the latest attempt by the international community to live up to the challenges of a planet that is out of control. Sustainable Development Goal 11 envisages inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities around the world by the year 2030. This globally agreed vision is part of a trend in international policy toward good urban governance, and now awaits implementation. Fourteen original contributions collectively examine how this global vision has been developed on a conceptual level, how it plays out in various areas of (global) urban governance and how it is implemented in varying local contexts. The overarching hypothesis presented herein is that SDG 11 proves that local governance is recognised as an autonomous yet interrelated part of the global pursuit of sustainable development. The volume analyses three core questions: How have the normative ideals set forth in SDG 11 been developed? What are the meanings of the four sub-goals of SDG 11 and how do these relate to each other? What does SDG 11 imply for urban law and governance in the domestic context and how are local processes of urban governance internationalised?

The Global Spread of Islamism and the Consequences for Terrorism
Michael Freeman, "The Global Spread of Islamism and the Consequences for Terrorism"
English | ISBN: 1640123709 | 2021 | 264 pages | EPUB | 588 KB
Terrorism motivated by Islamist religious ideology has been on the rise for the last forty years. Why? The three prior waves of terrorism-anarchist, nationalist, and Marxist-arose generally from a combination of geopolitical events and local grievances. This "fourth wave" of terrorism, however, has risen out of a different set of conditions.
