New World Disorder by Tzvetan Todorov
Book DescriptionThis illuminating analysis by one of the worlda s leading intellectuals addresses fundamental questions about the new world disorder exemplified by the war on terrorism, the Iraq conflict and its aftermath and the current state of transatlantic relations. In eight concise chapters, Todorov discusses the use of force versus diplomacy, the emergence of new powers and the reactions of different players such as the UK, France, Poland and the United Nations, to the imperialist turn in US foreign policy. He argues that a new Europe is capable of reducing its dependence on the United States and assuming more responsibilities in the area of foreign affairs, would be the most effective way of counter--balancing Americaa s current dominance of global politics. Drawing on his vast knowledge of history and philosophy, Todorov has written an insightful and timely book that, without simplyfying the issues, is accessible to all.

Books By Author Tzvetan Todorov
Inner Enemies of Democracy, Hardback (September 2014)
The political history of the twentieth century can be viewed as the history of democracy s struggle against its external enemies: fascism and communism. This struggle ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet regime.
Totalitarian Experience, Hardback (October 2011)
Recounts the author's own experiences with totalitarianism in his native Bulgaria, offering a historical look at communism. This title reveals the essence of totalitarian ideology, the characteristics of daily life under communism, and the irony of democratic messianism.
Limits of Art, Hardback (December 2010)» View all books by Tzvetan Todorov
Explores the complex relations between art, politics, and ethics. This book traces the intimate relationship between avant-garde art and radical politics in pre-revolutionary Russia, pre-fascist Italy, and pre-Nazi Germany. It re-examines the age-old question of what can be expected from art and whether it should be emancipated from ethics.
