War without end : the view from abroad by Bruno Tertrais( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is the war in Iraq the beginning of a war without end? Moving beyond U.S. debates over the conduct of the war and its relation to the "war on terror." Bruno Tertrais, one of Europe's leading defense analysts and former RAND Corporation fellow, takes us on a deeper investigation of American global strategy and its long-term consequences." "War Without End offers an examination of the ideas and policies that may have led the United States inextricably into a century of combat. An international authority on nuclear nonproliferation, Bruno Tertrais is able to look at American political and military thinking since World War II and to trace the ideology that has created the present impasse, including the most thorough account available of the neoconservative players and ideas that guided the Bush administration into Iraq."--Jacket

Magic in the ancient world by Fritz Graf( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ancient Greeks and Romans often turned to magic to achieve personal goals. Magical rites were seen as a route for direct access to the gods, for material gains as well as spiritual satisfaction. In this survey of magical beliefs and practices from the sixth century B.C.E. through late antiquity, Fritz Graf sheds new light on ancient religion." "Graf explores the important types of magic in Greco-Roman antiquity, describing rites and explaining the theory behind them. And he characterizes the ancient magician: his training and initiation, social status, and presumed connections with the divine world. With trenchant analysis of underlying conceptions and vivid account of illustrative cases, Graf gives a full picture of the practice of magic and its implications. He concludes with an evaluation of the relation of magic to religion."--Jacket

The system of philosophies of history by Luc Ferry( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because contemporary political philosophy owes a significant debt to the great nineteenth-century German philosophies of history, a sound knowledge of German Idealist philosophy is crucial to an understanding of our own time. In Political Philosophy 2, Luc Ferry provides not only a thorough introduction to German Idealism and its critics, but also an insightful look at contemporary political philosophy. Ferry begins this second volume of his ambitious three-volume Political Philosophy by considering both the structure and the potential political effects of the various philosophies of history born of German Idealism. He focuses on the key question of whether, and to what extent, the principle of reason may be said to govern the totality of the historically real. This leads to an examination of Hegel's criticism of the moral view of the world and to an assessment of the phenomenological criticism of Hegel put forth by Heidegger and Arendt. Ferry builds on the arguments set forth in Political Philosophy 1, which examines the contemporary philosophical retreat from the Enlightenment ideals of progress, reason, and freedom and also offers a cogent defense of a humanistic modernity. The earlier volume highlights in particular the thought of Leo Strauss, Heidegger, Kant, and Fichte. In volume 2, Ferry again turns to the political thought of Kant and Fichte. To Ferry, these two form a continuum between reform and revolution and thus allow for a moral view of the world that is rendered impossible by both Hegel's absolute affirmation, and Heidegger's absolute negation, of the principle of reason. Ferry devotes the rest of the book to a look at the problems raised by the practical philosophy of history, especially the antinomy that it in turn forms with rationalism. Written with Ferry's characteristic lucidity, this volume will appeal not only to all students of Heidegger and Arendt, but also to the nonspecialist reader interested in German Idealism

Lebanon, a shattered country : myths and realities of the wars in Lebanon by Elizabeth Picard( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Long a bridge between the Middle East and the West, a meeting ground of Islam and Christianity. Lebanon was a prosperous symbol of the harmonious coexistence of different ethnic and religious communities. After 1975, however, the "Switzerland of the Middle East" seemed to be transformed into a combat zone where the flames of violence fanned every ethnic, religious, and political rivalry in the region. With impartiality and precision, Picard traces the evolution of Lebanon from its founding to the present. She analyzes the causes and effects of the civil war - what and who have been destroyed, which powers have predominated and to whose benefit - and she explores realistic solutions to the conflict. Picard also provides a remarkably revealing account of the PLO, Israeli, and Syrian interventions in Lebanese politics. One of the few books to address the tension and instability in Lebanon and their underlying causes with attention to the many nuances. Lebanon: A Shattered Country gives us a clearer view of what is happening in a country whose turmoil seemed to defy solution. This sane and startling account is crucial not only for those concerned with the Middle East, but for anyone who seeks to understand nationalism, violence, the political manifestations of religion, and the limits of current political theory
