The anti-American century by Ivan Krastev( )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 1,808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book interrogates the nature of anti-Americanism today and over the last century. It asks several questions: How do we define the phenomenon from different perspectives: political, social, and cultural? What are the historical sources and turning points of anti-Americanism in Europe and elsewhere? What are its links with anti-Semitic sentiment? Has anti-Americanism been beneficial or self-destructive to its "believers"? Finally, how has the United States responded and why?"--BOOK JACKET
After Europe by Ivan Krastev( Book )

22 editions published in 2017 in 4 languages and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, public intellectual Ivan Krastev reflects on the future of the European Union--and its potential lack of a future. With far-right nationalist parties on the rise across the continent and the United Kingdom planning for Brexit, the European Union is in disarray and plagued by doubts as never before. Krastev includes chapters devoted to Europe's major problems (especially the political destabilization sparked by the more than 1.3 million migrants from the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia), the spread of right-wing populism (taking into account the election of Donald Trump in the United States), and the thorny issues facing member states on the eastern flank of the EU (including the threat posed by Vladimir Putin's Russia). He concludes by reflecting on the political, economic, and geopolitical future that would await the continent if the Union itself begins to disintegrate
Democracy disrupted : the politics of global protest by Ivan Krastev( )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and German and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the financial meltdown of 2008, political protests have spread around the world like chain lightning, from the "Occupy" movements of the United States, Great Britain, and Spain to more destabilizing forms of unrest in Tunisia, Egypt, Russia, Thailand, Bulgaria, Turkey, and Ukraine. In Democracy Disrupted: The Politics of Global Protest, commentator and political scientist Ivan Krastev proposes a provocative interpretation of these popular uprisings--one with ominous implications for the future of democratic politics. Challenging theories that trace the protests to the rise of a global middle class, Krastev proposes that the insurrections express a pervasive distrust of democratic institutions. Protesters on the streets of Moscow, Sofia, Istanbul, and São Paulo are openly suspicious of both the market and the state. They reject established political parties, question the motives of the mainstream media, refuse to recognize the legitimacy of any specific leadership, and reject all formal organizations. They have made clear what they don't want--the status quo--but they have no positive vision of an alternative future. Welcome to the worldwide libertarian revolution, in which democracy is endlessly disrupted to no end beyond the disruption itself

The Anti-American Century( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book interrogates the nature of anti-Americanism today and over the last century. It asks several questions: How do we define the phenomenon from different perspectives: political, social, and cultural? What are the historical sources and turning points of anti-Americanism in Europe and elsewhere? What are its links with anti-Semitic sentiment? Has anti-Americanism been beneficial or self-destructive to its "believers"? Finally, how has the United States responded and why? The authors, scholars from a multitude of countries, tackle the potential political consequences of anti-Americanism in Eastern and Central Europe, the region that has been perceived as strongly pro-American

What does Russia think?( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The EU's Russia policy cannot succeed as long as it continues to rest on faulty analysis and mistaken assumptions. This is the main conclusion of What does Russia think?, a collection of politically revealing essays by intellectuals whose views influence the Kremlin, which the European Council on Foreign Relations has published today. The collection includes essays by Fyodor Lukyanov, Valery Fadeev, Vyacheslav Glazychev, Gleb Pavlovsky and Leonid Polyakov. Despite a tendency toward insularity, the policy debate in Russia as reflected through these essays is ongoing and lively. As ECFR Russia experts Ivan Krastev, Mark Leonard and Andrew Wilson write in their joint introduction, "If we want to influence and deal with Russia, we need to understand it. But if we want to understand Russia, we should be interested in it. Unfortunately, we are not. Taken together, these essays show that the EU will only be able to develop an effective approach to Moscow if its policy makers rediscover some of the curiosity for Russia's internal debates that they had during the Cold War."--Publisher description
Die große Regression eine internationale Debatte über die geistige Situation der Zeit by Heinrich Geiselberger( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spätestens seit sich die Folgen der Finanzkrise abzeichnen und die Migration in die Europäische Union zunimmt, sehen wir uns mit Entwicklungen konfrontiert, die viele für Phänomene einer längst vergangenen Epoche hielten: dem Aufstieg nationalistischer, teils antiliberaler Parteien wie dem Front National und der AfD, einer tiefgreifenden Krise der EU, einer Verrohung des öffentlichen Diskurses durch Demagogen wie Donald Trump, wachsendem Misstrauen gegenüber den etablierten Medien und einer Verbreitung fremdenfeindlicher Einstellungen, die an dunkle Zeiten gemahnt. Politiker werden als "Vaterlandsverräter" verunglimpft, Muslime unter Generalverdacht gestellt, im Internet werden die krudesten Verschwörungstheorien propagiert. In diesem Band untersuchen international renommierte Forscher und Intellektuelle die Ursachen dieser "Großen Regression", verorten sie in einem historischen Kontext, erörtern Szenarien für die nächsten Jahre und diskutieren Strategien, mit denen wir diesen Entwicklungen entgegentreten können. Mit Beiträgen von Arjun Appadurai, Zygmunt Bauman, Donatella della Porta, Nancy Fraser, Eva Illouz, Ivan Krastev, Bruno Latour, Paul Mason, Pankaj Mishra, Robert Misik, Oliver Nachtwey, César Rendueles, Wolfgang Streeck, David Van Reybrouck, Slavoj Žižek
In mistrust we trust : can democracy survive when we don't trust our leaders? by Ivan Krastev( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A recent Gallup poll listed the most and least trusted professions in America. At the bottom of the list: car salesmen and members of Congress. It's not hard to understand why our politicians rate so poorly, scandals, myopia, obstinance, party loyalty over common good, fiscal cliffs. All have left voters exasperated and confused. But while confidence in our elected leaders has never been lower, we cling to the belief that democracies represent the epitome of societal and political organization. Why? With his provocative book In Mistrust We Trust: Can Democracy Survive When We Don't Trust Our Leaders?, political commentator Ivan Krastev explores this incongruity between our political head and heart. Tech tools may help provide some openness to the machinations of the political machine, but they may just be putting a Band-Aid on an open wound. Ultimately, Krastev ponders whether we can enjoy the many rights of our society without enjoying real political choice

The spectre of a multipolar Europe by Ivan Krastev( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The European Council on Foreign Relations has published a major report on European security architecture called 'The spectre of a multipolar Europe', written by Ivan Krastev and Mark Leonard, with Jana Kobzova, Dimitar Bechev and Andrew Wilson. The report argues that Europe is becoming increasingly multipolar, and in danger of lapsing into separate spheres of influence. It argues that the US is no longer willing to engage in Europe's internal security, and instead, the main actors--the EU, Russia and Turkey--must come together in a trialogue to build a new European security architecture. Turkey's EU accession process must also be strengthened alongside recognition of its recent emergence as a credible regional power. The findings: The post-Cold War order is unravelling. Rather than uniting under a single system, Europe's big powers are moving apart. Tensions between them have made security systems dysfunctional: they failed to prevent war in Kosovo and Georgia, instability in Kyrgyzstan, disruption to Europe's gas supplies, and solve frozen conflicts. The EU has spent much of the last decade defending a European order that no longer functions. Russia and Turkey may complain more, but the EU has the most to lose from the current peaceful disorder. A frustrated Turkey still wants to join the EU, but it is increasingly pursuing an independent foreign policy and looking for a larger role as a regional power. In the words of foreign minister Davutoglu, Turkey is now an 'actor not an issue'. Its accession negotiations to the EU should be speeded up, and it must also be engaged as an important regional power. Russia never accepted the post-Cold War order. Moscow is now strong enough to openly challenge it, but its Westpolitik strategy also means that it is open to engagement--that is why Dmitri Medvedev suggested a new European security treaty a couple of years ago. Obama's non-appearance at the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall was the latest sign that the US is no longer focused on Europe's internal security. Washington has its hands full dealing with Afghanistan, Iran and China and is no longer a European power. The Recommendations: An informal 'trialogue' involving the EU, Turkey and Russia should be established, allowing cooperation over security to build from the ground up. In order to strengthen Turkey's European identity, Ankara should be given a top-table seat at the trialogue, in parallel with enhanced EU accession negotiations. New chapters should be opened on CSDP and energy. The EU should be represented by the foreign affairs high representative, Catherine Ashton, institutionalising the EU as a security actor. A European security identity should be fostered by encouraging the involvement of Russia in projects like missile defence that focus on external threats to Europe. Russian resolve should be tested by a commitment to dealing with frozen conflicts and instability in the wider European area. 'The spectre of a multipolar Europe' draws upon extensive research by ECFR in all 27 EU member states, including more than 250 interviews and a detailed study of relevant national security documents. The research suggests that Europeans now take peace for granted, and worry more about risks to standards of living than traditional threats. Although they fear marginalisation in a world of rising powers, there is a surprising amount of agreement about perceived threats, and an appetite to institutionalise the EU as a coherent and credible security actor.--Publisher description
