De nieuwe politiek van Europa by Luuk van Middelaar( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in Dutch and French and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aan de vooravond van het Europese verkiezingsjaar 2017 als Nederland, Frankrijk en Duitsland naar de stembus gaan verschijnt zijn 'Improvisaties', een ooggetuige-verslag en analyse van het ontstaan van een nieuwe Europese politiek. Miles Davis zei het ooit: "I?ll play it first and tell you what it is later." Na tien jaar improvisaties door Europa?s politieke leiders is het tijd te vertellen wat er aan het alomtegenwoordige Europese front gebeurt. Van Middelaar biedt perspectief, schept helderheid in over elkaar heen tuimelende crises, spanningen en conflicten, en zet de grote lijnen uit. Europa is ontegenzeglijk in een politiek revolutionaire fase beland, waar de wereld met verbijstering naar kijkt. In 'Improvisaties' laat de auteur weergaloos en met schwung zien hoe politici in Brussel, Berlijn, Parijs, Londen of Den Haag hun Unie met horten en stoten instellen op deze opwindende en opgewonden tijden. Ze doorzien of overzien zelf niet altijd wat ze doen, maar in hun daden en woorden krijgt Europa een nieuwe gestalte. Niet langer ingesnoerd in de Brusselse regelfabriek is Europa klaar voor gebeurtenissenpolitiek. Brexit, Griekse stemmingen, de magnetische werking van Europa op haar buren, de wereldpolitieke gebeurtenissen aan haar grenzen: dit alles vergt kunstig improviseren in situaties waarvoor geen regels klaarliggen. Gebeurtenissenpolitiek is nu het beste antwoord op de onvoorspelbaarheid van de aanstormende geschiedenis. Improviseren: op onverwachte uitdagingen en uit het niets te moeten handelen is geen schande maar een kwaliteit, die onmiddellijk vorm geeft aan het heden. Luuk van Middelaar is er opnieuw in geslaagd: acht jaar na De passage naar Europa waarmee hij het Europese podium bestormde, biedt hij opnieuw een wervelende geschiedenis van het heden, die even leerzaam is als onthullend

National leaders and the making of Europe : key episodes in the life of the European Council by Pierre de Boissieu( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its creation in 1974, the European Council has evolved from an informal meeting of presidents and prime ministers, resembling a cross between a society gathering and a diplomatic conclave, to become a full EU institution in its own right and the Union's supreme political authority, driving its strategy and resolving its crises. Nothing of any significance in the Union can now be set in motion without its consent, nor accomplished without its support. This book tells the story of how this came about. Individual chapters describe landmark meetings of the European Council, providing a detailed account of what went on at each summit, evoking the atmosphere and tensions and drawing out the achievements and longer-term significance. As well as high-level politics and the great issues of the European project such as enlargement to the East, treaty reform and the creation of the single currency, the story also involves the clash of strong personalities, sub-plots and moments of high drama. The authors are serving or former senior EU civil servants who have all been closely involved in preparing and attending European Councils. Very few officials have such intimate access. They therefore write as first-hand witnesses of events as they happened, offering new perspectives and insights. 'National Leaders and the Making of Europe is an important book. Written by insiders who also have the bigger picture in mind, it brings selected political moments in Europe's tumultuous history back to life.' Herman Van Rompuy --

I.O.U. : the debt threat and why we must defuse it by Noreena Hertz( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in Dutch and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I.O.U. is a story of avarice, but also of vulnerability; of power asymmetries and misuse of power; of corrupt dictators and careless lenders; of Cold War interests and Wall Street pressure; of developing country governments who get given it, and developing country people who have no access to it. Noreena Hertz, one of the world's leading experts on economic globalisation, provides a radical blueprint for addressing the debt crisis. She argues that this is not an issue of left or right : this is an issue of right versus wrong; of peace versus war. It must be addressed now."--BOOK JACKET
