What mechanisms made political communication successful or unsuccessful? This edited volume covers questions like speech and mechanisms of political communication, political communication at a distance, bottom-up communication, failure of communication and representation of political communication. It will be of help to specialists in the Roman world, but also to students and researchers of political sciences, and specialists of political communication in pre-industrial times.

In 1870 Bismarck ordered the Prussian Army to invade France, inciting one of the most dramatic conflicts in European history. It transformed not only the states-system of the Continent but the whole climate of European moral and political thought. The overwhelming triumph of German military might, evoking general admiration and imitation, introduced an era of power politics, which was to reach its disastrous climax in 1914.
First published in 1961 and now with a new introduction, The Franco-Prussian War is acknowledged as the definitive history of one of the most dramatic and decisive conflicts in the history of Europe.

Russia Before Putin by Edward Tesler

English | May 9th, 2017 | 170 pages | EPUB | 0.97 MB
This is a book that is fascinating life about the realities of living in the Soviet Union by a man who was in some very interesting places when Josef Stalin and a few other dictators were running the place. Dr. Tesler has the unique skill of making a boring subject like economics fascinating.
Someone reading this book will find that in his unique ability to economize on words, he can supply an abundance of incredible information. This is a book every student studying World History should read.
This is not a book about Vladimir Putin but it is a book about the groundwork in which he functioned before he got involved in big time politics. The governmental seeds that were sown in Russia when Dr. Tesler was getting out of the Soviet Union may well be finding growth in Mr. Putin’s timberland in which he seemingly enjoys the hunt.
