A DREAM IS NOT NOTHING

2019-10-03

In my country, the Netherlands, we are remembering the long story of liberation from Nazi-German occupation 75 years ago - it truly was a liberation. When the Soviets liberated  the countries of Central and Eastern Europe from Nazi-occupation, their so-called liberation  would be just another long era of repression. Gyorgy Konrad, my age, died recently and I attach a very moving and pertinent memory to his life.  For him and his Central European co-citizens, liberation came only in 1989 just 30 years ago. Hungary, at best, is still dreaming its way to true democracy.

Footprints of the 20th Century

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The peaceful collapse of the Soviet totalitarian, communist system has been a watershed of historic proportions in Europe and the world. In 1989, unexpectedly, Communism and the Cold War were behind us, they were bad and should be forgotten. The immediate post-1989 world presented itself as a new era of organised forgetting, as neither East nor West were interested in examining the prolonged period of acquiescence in absurdities.

Western Cooperation

For the study of international relations, knowledge of the history of Western Cooperation in the Twentieth Century is essential. The third volume reviews the broader history from America’s entry in the First World War in 1917 and the start of the American Era in international relations one hundred years ago, to the inauguration of President Trump in 2017.
