Civil resistance and power politics : the experience of non-violent action from Gandhi to the present by Adam Roberts( )

25 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 1,863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book addresses the complex interrelationship between civil resistance and other dimensions of power. It explores the question of whether civil resistance should be seen as potentially replacing violence completely, or as a phenomenon that operates in conjunction with, and modification of, power politics. It looks at cases where campaignswere repressed, including China in 1989 and Burma in 2007. It notes that in several instances, including Northern Ireland, Kosovo, and Georgia, civil resistance movements were followed by the outbreak of armed conflict. It also includes a chapter with new material from Russian archives showing how the Soviet leadership responded to civil resistance, and a comprehensive bibliographical essay."--Jacket

Free speech : ten principles for a connected world by Timothy Garton Ash( Book )

39 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Never in human history was there such a chance for freedom of expression. If we have Internet access, any one of us can publish almost anything we like and potentially reach an audience of millions. Never was there a time when the evils of unlimited speech flowed so easily across frontiers: violent intimidation, gross violations of privacy, tidal waves of abuse. A pastor burns a Koran in Florida and UN officials die in Afghanistan. Drawing on a lifetime of writing about dictatorships and dissidents, Timothy Garton Ash argues that in this connected world that he calls cosmopolis, the way to combine freedom and diversity is to have more but also better free speech. Across all cultural divides we must strive to agree on how we disagree. He draws on a thirteen-language global online project9 freespeechdebate.com 9conducted out of Oxford University and devoted to doing just that. With vivid examples, from his personal experience of China's Orwellian censorship apparatus to the controversy around Charlie Hebdo to a very English court case involving food writer Nigella Lawson, he proposes a framework for civilized conflict in a world where we are all becoming neighbors.--

Facts are subversive : political writing from a decade without a name by Timothy Garton Ash( Book )

28 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 801 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."--Jacket

The magic lantern : the revolution of '89 witnessed in Warsaw, Budapest, Berlin, and Prague by Timothy Garton Ash( Book )

26 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and Slovenian and held by 468 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
Sociology of Mathematics Education : Mathematical Myths by Timothy Garton Ash( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author argues that the reason why children still 'fail' at maths at school - despite the shift to 'easier' and more 'approachable' maths teaching since the 1960s - is because of the textbooks in use
We the people : the revolution of '89 witnessed in Warsaw, Budapest, Berlin & Prague by Timothy Garton Ash( Book )

20 editions published between 1990 and 1999 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History of the present : essays, sketches and despatches from Europe in the 1990s by Timothy Garton Ash( Book )

22 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."--Jacket
Free world : why a crisis of the West reveals the opportunity of our time by Timothy Garton Ash( Book )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on an extraordinary range of sources, from unique conversations with leaders such as Bush, Blair and Schroder to encounters with farmers in Kansas and soldiers in Aldershot, from history, memoir and opinion polls to personal observations based on a quarter-century of travelling in Europe and the US, Timothy Garton Ash demolishes the popular claim that Americans are from Mars and Europeans are from Venus. He shows why Washington can never rule the world on its own, why the new, enlarged Europe can only realize its aspirations in a larger, transatlantic community, and why the torments of the Middle East and the developing world can only be addressed by Europeans and Americans working together."--BOOK JACKET
Civil resistance in the Arab Spring : triumphs and disasters( Book )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Civil resistance, especially in the form of massive peaceful demonstrations, was at the heart of the Arab Spring-the chain of events in the Middle East and North Africa that erupted in December 2010. It won some notable victories: popular movements helped to bring about the fall of authoritarian governments in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen. Yet these apparent triumphs of non-violent action were followed by disasters-wars in Syria, anarchy in Libya and Yemen, reversion to authoritarian rule in Egypt, and counter-revolution backed by external intervention in Bahrain. Looming over these events was the enduring divide between the Sunni and Shi'a branches of Islam. Why did so much go wrong? Was the problem the methods, leadership and aims of the popular movements, or the conditions of their societies? In this book, experts on these countries, and on the techniques of civil resistance, set the events in their historical, social and political contexts. They describe how governments and outside powers-including the US and EU-responded, how Arab monarchies in Jordan and Morocco undertook to introduce reforms to avert revolution, and why the Arab Spring failed to spark a Palestinian one

23 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freedom for publishing, publishing for freedom : the Central and East European Publishing Project by Timothy Garton Ash( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 205 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
