The bloody flag : post-communist nationalism in eastern Europe : spotlight on Romania by Juliana Geran Pilon( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the aftermath of the collapse of Communism, the future of Eastern Europe is uncertain. After decades under totalitarian regimes, the people of the region are struggling to rediscover their cultural past and to establish political arrangements that will help them to achieve peace and prosperity. The resurgence of nationalist sentiments among the newly liberated peoples of Eastern Europe is powerful evidence of their need to reestablish a strong sense of identity. At the same time, it is potentially the greatest obstacle to peace in the region. Juliana Geran Pilon's The Bloody Flag is a study of nationalism's dual nature. In its positive aspect, nationalism can draw people together; it can give them a sense of self-worth, common purpose, and cultural pride. But it can also drive people apart. At a time when the countries of Eastern Europe are experiencing unprecedented unrest and upheaval in the course of their transition to market economies, nationalism has an alarming, destructive potential. There is a real danger, Pilon warns, that the defeated elites of the old order will attempt to harness nationalist energies for their own ends. If they succeed, the world may witness the rise of new authoritarian regimes to replace the old Communist ones. Designed to appeal to a wide audience, Pilon's study combines inquiry into the nature of nationalism with historical illustrations of its influence. Crucial to her work is an examination of post-Ceausescu Romania, where sizeable minority groups increase the potential for destructive nationalist conflict. The best hope for Romanians, and for all the peoples of Eastern Europe, is to embrace the positive aspects of nationalism while rejecting the negative. The political system which can allow them to do that, Pilon argues, is the classical-liberal model defended by such figures as Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek - a model which makes possible the harmonious coexistence of different nationalities by protecting the rights of individuals and leaving them free to pursue their interests

Soulmates : resurrecting Eve by Juliana Geran Pilon( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Soulmates: Resurrecting Eve, Juliana Geran Pilon argues for a return to an egalitarian view of men and women, found in the original Genesis narrative, as reflected through Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In each of these Abrahamic traditions, it was understood that man and woman were created to be soulmates in God's image-equal despite their different functions within society. Pilon writes that this original message has gradually been distorted, with disastrous effect. Any hope for an ennobling human community begins by resurrecting Eve as an equal partner to Adam. The work examines the Biblical creation narrative, comparing it to Greek and other ancient mythologies. Pilon explains how the disturbing association of woman with sin and death led to Eve's demise as Adam's equal. The final section of the work deals with the Goddess myth, love and marriage in early religious narratives, and modern man's search for his soul no less than for a soulmate. The book, at its core, is a meditation on the relationship between men and women but also among human beings. The resurrection of Eve is indispensable to attaining a true appreciation of love and faith. Pilon uses religious texts, expert commentary, and various works of fiction, poetry, and psychology to make her argument come alive. The work is strengthened by the writing style, alternately poetic and humorous, and a clear and illuminating progression of ideas. Its emphasis on reconciliation and understanding, and its post-feminist outlook will find a receptive audience."--Provided by publisher
The art of peace : engaging a complex world by Juliana Geran Pilon( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sun Tzu, author of The Art of War, believed that the acme of leadership consists in figuring out how to subdue the enemy with the least amount of fighting--a fact that America's Founders also understood, and practiced with astonishing success. For it to work, however, a people must possess both the ability and the willingness to use all available instruments of power in peace as much as in war. US foreign policy has increasingly neglected the instruments of civilian power and become overly dependent on lethal solutions to conflict. The steep rise in unconventional conflict has increased the need for diplomatic and other non-hardpower tools of statecraft. The United States can no longer afford to sit on the proverbial three-legged national security stool ("military, diplomacy, development"), where one leg is a lot longer than either of the other two, almost forgetting altogether the fourth leg--information, especially strategic communication and public diplomacy. The United States isn't so much becoming militarized as decivilianized. According to Sun Tzu, self-knowledge is as important as knowledge of one's enemy: "if you know neither yourself nor the enemy, you will succumb in every battle." Alarmingly, the United States is deficient on both counts. And though we can stand to lose a few battles, the stakes of losing the war itself in this age of nuclear proliferation are too high to contemplate -- Provided by publisher

Notes from the other side of night by Juliana Geran Pilon( Book )

5 editions published between 1979 and 2017 in English and Romanian and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Notes from the Other Side of Night is a diary-memoir written upon Juliana Geran Pilon's return to her native Romania in 1975, which she had left along with her family when she was just fourteen. Poetically weaving together modern insight and realities with childhood perceptions, Pilon tells the haunting stories of her parents, grandparents, neighbors, and friends.Although the scenery of her native home had remained essentially unchanged since her childhood, Pilon recalls streets that are no more, homes and churches that have been demolished. Yet, the hills and forests, the flowers and mountains, the heat of old Bucharest, remained the same. The scenes and characters described in this book are simply unforgettable.Despite the many tragedies it describes--anti-semitism, political imprisonment, and judicial execution were ruthless realities under communism--Notes from the Other Side of Night is not a depressing book. Pilon writes with a detached melancholy about events and characters that illustrate Hannah Arendt's terrifying "banality of evil." But she remembers, as well, those few who managed to remain human beings until the end. Ultimately, hope triumphs in this memoir. This edition includes a new foreword, which discusses the initial writing and publication of this and previous editions."--Provided by publisher
