Michael Barr explores the complex and covert networks of power at work in one of the world's most prosperous countries – the city-state of Singapore. He argues that the contemporary networks of power are a deliberate project initiated and managed by Lee Kuan Yew – former prime minister and Singapore’s ‘founding father’ – designed to empower himself and his family. Barr identifies the crucial institutions of power - including the country’s sovereign wealth funds, and the government-linked companies – together with five critical features that form the key to understanding the nature of the networks. He provides an assessment of possible shifts of power within the elite in the wake of Lee Kuan Yew’s son, Lee Hsien Loong, assuming power, and considers the possibility of a more fundamental democratic shift in Singapore’s political system.

Singapore gained independence in 1965, a city-state in a world of nation-states. Yet its long and complex history reaches much farther back. Blending modernity and tradition, ideologies and ethnicities, a peculiar set of factors make Singapore what it is today. In this thematic study of the island nation, Michael D. Barr proposes a new approach to understand this development. From the pre-colonial period through to the modern day, he traces the idea, the politics and the geography of Singapore over five centuries of rich history. In doing so he rejects the official narrative of the so-called 'Singapore Story'. Drawing on in-depth archival work and oral histories, Singapore: A Modern History is a work both for students of the country's history and politics, but also for any reader seeking to engage with this enigmatic and vastly successful nation.

بعض موضوعات الكتاب مسبوق وبعضها غير مسبوق، غير أن الكتاب في مجموعة تام الجدة كامل الإبداع حتى في منهاج المسبوق منه، ولا نقابل هنا بين المؤرخ الفيلسوف الفقيه العربي ابن خلدون ومونتسكيو لنرى أيهما أكثر إبداعا من الآخر وأحق منه في لقب واضع علم السياسة والاجتماع، فلكل منهما نواح أبدع فيها أثكر من الآخر

هذه الوثيقة الأخطر في تاريخ العلاقات الأمريكية الصهيونية. لقيت هذه الدراسة صعوبة في نشرها أول الأمر، ثم نشرها كاتباها على موقع جامعة هارفرد، وبعد شهرتها لم يستطع الكارهون للحقيقة كبتها؛ فنشرت في مجلة السياسة الخارجية مختصرة. إنها تمثل أكثر الدراسات صراحة وتوثيقاً، حيث كشفت عن العصابة التي تستعبد أمريكا من الداخل، وتتظاهر بأنها تخدم المصلحة الأمريكية بينما هي في الحقيقة تضر بالولايات المتحدة، وتنشر كراهيتها في العالم، بل تضر بالكيان الصهيوني من خلال نشر التطرف في المواقف الصهيونية، ومنع عمليات السلام. عصابات "إيباك" النافذة في الكونجرس والبيت الأبيض تسيطر حتى على اللجان التي ترسلها أمريكا للمنطقة العربية، وعلى الشخصيات المؤثرة في عمليات السلام، وتضع لها الخطط وتمنعها من القيام بتنفيذ المصالح الأمريكية، وتجعل من سياسة الولايات المتحدة مجرد صدى لعصابات واشنطن النافذة. عندما صدر هذا الكتاب هز المجتمع الأكاديمي السياسي في الولايات المتحدة، وهتك الأستار المحرمة. نص المقال صغير ولكن المراجع نالت حيزاً أكثر من النص لمن أراد التوثيق. الكتاب لا يستغني عنه مثقف ومتابع للسياسة الأمريكية في الداخل والخارج وعلاقات أمريكا بالعالم العربي.

In democratization theory, Singapore continues to be a remarkable country for its extremely low level of contentious politics despite rapid economic development. In contrast, many different groups in Hong Kong have taken their demands to the streets since the 1970s. Even though there is an obvious difference in the willingness of the population to actively challenge the regime, the political developments of the two city-states show a similar pattern of political mobilization and government reaction. This book examines the changing pattern of contentious politics in the democratization process of these Asian city-states. It explores the causal connections between popular contention and democratization, using a multi-disciplinary approach with theoretical insights from the political sciences, sociology and psychology. The political process model is applied to provide further understanding of the patterns of interaction between contenders, opposition groups or social movements and the ruling elite. The book argues that differences in the strategies applied by the ruling elite explain why members of the opposition were empowered or obstructed in challenging the government.

This four-volume edition of the Arabic text of the Journey of the Moroccan traveller Ibn Battuta (1304-68/9), with a French translation, was published in 1853-8. In 1325, Ibn Battuta, who came from a family of Islamic jurists in Tangier, set out to make the pilgrimage to Mecca - the beginning of a journey that would last for twenty-four years and take him as far as China. In Volume 2, he leaves Najaf and heads for Persia, exploring Isfahan and Shiraz before returning to Baghdad. Next he goes north, as far as modern Turkey, before performing a second pilgrimage to Mecca. From Jeddah, he sails to Yemen and down the coast of Africa as far as modern-day Tanzania. After a third visit to Mecca he heads north as far as the Crimea and Astrakhan, whence he travels to Constantinople in the retinue of a Byzantine princess, before heading east again.
