Civil resistance and power politics the experience of non-violent action from Gandhi to the present by Adam Roberts ( )
15 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Civil resistance--non-violent action against such challenges as dictatorial rule, racial discrimination and foreign military occupation--is a significant but inadequately understood feature of world politics. Especially through the peaceful revolutions of 1989, it has helped to shape the world we live in. Civil Resistance and Power Politics covers most of the leading cases, including the actions master-minded by Gandhi, the US civil rights struggle in the 1960s, the Islamic revolution in Iran in 1979, the 'people power' revolt in the Philippines in the 1980s, the campaigns against apartheid in South Africa, the various movements contributing to the collapse of the Soviet Bloc in 1989-91, and, in this century, the 'colour revolutions' in Georgia and Ukraine. The chapters, written by leading experts, are richly descriptive and analytically rigorous

Facts are subversive : political writing from a decade without a name by Timothy Garton Ash ( Book )
12 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Timothy Garton Ash is well known as an astute and penetrating writer on a dazzling array of subjects, not least through his many contributions to the New York Review of Books. This collection of his essays from the past decade reveals his knack for ferreting out exceptional insights into a troubled world, often on the basis of firsthand experience. Whether he is writing about how "liberalism" has become a dirty word in American political discourse, the problems of Muslim assimilation in Europe, Ukraine's Orange Revolution, Günter Grass's membership in the Waffen-SS, or the angry youth of Iran, Garton Ash combines a gimlet eye for detail with deep knowledge of the history of his chosen subjects. Running through this book is the author's insistence that, whatever some postmodernists might claim, there are indeed facts--and we have both a political and a moral duty to establish them."--Dust jacket
The magic lantern : the revolution of '89 witnessed in Warsaw, Budapest, Berlin, and Prague by Timothy Garton Ash ( Book )
14 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Magic Lantern is one of those rare books that define a historic moment, written by a brilliant witness who was also a participant in epochal events. Whether covering Poland's first free parliamentary elections -- in which Solidarity found itself in the position of trying to limit the scope of its victory -- or sitting in at the meetings of an unlikely coalition of bohemian intellectuals and Catholic clerics orchestrating the liberation of Czechoslovakia, Garton Ash writes with enormous sympathy and power. In this book -- now with a new Afterword by the author -- Garton Ash creates a stunningly evocative portrait of the revolutions that swept Communism from Eastern Europe in 1989 and whose after-effects will resonate for years to come
History of the present : essays, sketches and despatches from Europe in the 1990s by Timothy Garton Ash ( Book )
15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The 1990s. An extraordinary decade in Europe. At its beginning the old order collapsed with the Berlin Wall. Everything seemed possible." "Timothy Garton Ash chronicles this best and worst of decades in a kaleidoscope of essays, sketches and despatches written as history was being made. He joins the East Germans for their decisive vote for unification and visits their former leader in prison. He accompanies the Poles on their roller-conster ride from dictatorship to democracy. He walks in mass demonstrations in Belgrade and travels through the killing fields of Kosovo. He uncover the motives for monetary union in Parts and Bonn." "Occasionally, he even becomes an actor in the drama he describes: debating Germany with Margaret Thatcher at Chequers or the role of the Intellectual with Vaclav Havel in Prague. In his introduction, he argues that we shouldn't wait until the archives are opened before starting to write the history of our own times. Then he shows how it can be done."--BOOK JACKET

Free world : why a crisis of the West reveals the opportunity of our time by Timothy Garton Ash ( Book )
17 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Britain may not be divided physically, but it lives culturally, economically and socially in a constant tension between Europe and America. And it's divided politically between a Right which argues that our place is with America, not Europe, and a Left which claims the opposite. This is today's English civil war. Both sides tell us we must choose between Europe and America. But how can we choose, when Britain has two faces pointing in opposite directions? Garton Ash argues that the beginning of national wisdom is to accept that this is who we are, that Britain faces both ways. What follows is, he says, a liberation - and a challenge. In this stimulating new book, Garton Ash examines how this has happened, and argues that Britain should resist choosing between Europe and America, but embrace a new role in harmony with both, and that instead of destructively bickering as we have for decades, we should be concentrating on grander and more durable aspirations for political freedom
Freedom for publishing, publishing for freedom : the Central and East European Publishing Project ( Book )
8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Oxford-based Central and East European Publishing Project was a remarkable initiative to support embattled Central and East European publishers and journals, and to punch holes through the cultural iron curtain by encouraging translations and a 'common market of the mind' between East and West. The nine years of its existence straddle the largest watershed in European history since 1945, and the Project's history - told here by some of its leading participants - illuminates the nature of the recent changes in Central and Eastern Europe." "In a vivid personal account, Timothy Garton Ash recalls the work of the Project, ranging from smuggling in subsidies to underground journals and samizdat publishers in the pre-1989 period to supporting high-quality translations and East-West workshops in the period after 1989. Also included are an Introduction in which Ralf Dahrendorf, Chairman of the Project, reflects on the importance of both publishing and foundations for a healthy civil society; an annotated catalogue of the Project's work, prepared by Elizabeth Winter; and a detailed and original report by Richard Davy on the state of publishing in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary, with suggestions for further Western help."--Jacket
