The Jewish century by Yuri Slezkine( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in Polish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author claims that not only have Jews adapted better than many other groups to living in the modern world, they have become the premiere symbol and standard of modern life everywhere. The Jews traditionally belonged to a social category known as "service nomads," an outsider group specializing in the delivery of goods and services. This role--urban, mobile, literate, articulate, intellectually intricate, physically fastidious, and occupationally flexible--has taken center stage in the modern age. Marxism and Freudianism sprang largely from the Jewish predicament, and both Soviet Bolshevism and American liberalism were affected in fundamental ways by the Jewish exodus from the Pale of Settlement. The book concentrates on the drama of the Russian Jews, including migrš and their offspring in America, Palestine, and the Soviet Union. But Slezkine has as much to say about the many faces of modernity as he does about Jewry.--Publisher

City of thorns : nine lives in the world's largest refugee camp by Ben Rawlence( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in Polish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dadaab oznacza „miejsce twardego kamienia”. Jednak dla mieszkańców Rogu Afryki to przede wszystkim nazwa jednego z największych obozów dla uchodźców na świecie. Założony w 1992 roku miał chronić osoby uciekające przed wojną domową w Somalii od głodu, nędzy, a później również od terrorystów z Asz-Szabab. Niewielki i tymczasowy azyl z biegiem lat przekształcił się w ogromną, otoczoną drutem kolczastym metropolię, kuszącą tysiące ludzi wizją lepszego jutra i darmową opieką organizacji pomocowych. Dziennikarz i wieloletni współpracownik Human Rights Watch Ben Rawlence zebrał historie osób, które wskutek niesprawiedliwości losu znalazły się w sytuacji bez wyjścia. W jego książce głos mają rodzice, którzy zostawili za sobą całą przeszłość, ich dzieci – „pokolenie ’92” – nieznające rzeczywistości innej niż obóz, i ich wnuki, często umierające z powodu niedożywienia i szerzących się w Dadaab chorób. Gwałty i wymuszenia, obławy, wewnętrzny terror i klanowy ostracyzm, a wszystko pod czujnym okiem ONZ i kenijskiej policji. Miejsce, które wydawało się rajem, dość szybko okazało się gettem, z którego ucieczka graniczy niemal z cudem. Jedna z 10 najważniejszych książek 2016 roku według „Los Angeles Times” oraz książka roku 2016 według „The Economist”. "--
Commutative rings : dimension, multiplicity, and homological methods by Stanisław Balcerzyk( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human rights and their limits by Wiktor Osiatyński( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in Polish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Human Rights and Their Limits shows that the concept of human rights has developed in waves: each call for rights served the purpose of social groups that tried to stop further proliferation of rights once their own goals were reached. While defending the universality of human rights as norms of behavior, Osiatynski admits that the philosophy on human rights does not need to be universal. Instead he suggests that the enjoyment of social rights should be contingent upon the recipient's contribution to society. He calls for a "soft universalism" that will not impose rights on others but will share the experience of freedom and help the victims of violations. Although a state of unlimited democracy threatens rights, the excess of rights can limit resources indispensable for democracy. This book argues that although rights are a prerequisite of freedom, they should be balanced with other values that are indispensable for social harmony and personal happiness."--Jacket
