- A Difficult Century Forming Of The World Government - 1,887 words
A Difficult Century - Forming Of The World Government According to Held, Today, the mechanisms we have for enforcing international law depend too much on whether a powerful geo-political force such as the U.S. is willing to commit resources to the problem. In such a situation, a big state will likely do what it desires, acting in its own interests. Recent developments in Kosovo, Chechnya, Iran and other states in some kind of a conflict have just proven the above statement. Presently the most important developments in international law and relations between states are, almost exclusively, dictated by the Great Powers. The General Assembly of the UN is probably the only part of UN that repres ...

- Crime And Egypt - 1,072 words
Crime And Egypt BE CAREFUL OUT THERE Tourists face a world of dangers. But with the right advice, most hazards turn out to be manageable. JIM VAN HOUTEN, A FINANCIAL planner from Phoenix, Ariz., was on a tour of the Middle East, but by the time his group arrived in Egypt, most of its members had opted out. ``We started in Israel with 320 people,'' he said during a visit to the Valley of the Kings, the stunning burial site outside Luxor. ``Only 62 people came to Cairo, and only 16 of us came down to Luxor. But touring Egypt is like the stock market,'' he added. ``When everybody bails out, you should come in.'' A great many U.S. tourists have bailed out on Egypt since 1997, when terrorists sla ...

- George W Bush Jiang Zemin - 856 words
George W. Bush - Jiang Zemin By Ralph A. Cossa China seems very pleased with the outcome of the George W. Bush - Jiang Zemin presidential summit meeting in Shanghai on October 19 along the sidelines of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders' Meeting. This was not because a great deal was accomplished, but because of Jiang's extremely modest definition of what constituted a successful meeting. All Beijing apparently sought was a photo opportunity and a new slogan. Success was achieved on both accounts, with the Chinese press touting the willingness by both sides to seek a new ``constructive relationship of cooperation.'' This is not insignificant. Both Washington and Beijing wer ...

- Internet In Russia - 1,475 words
Internet In Russia Russia has always been a country full of contradictions, as it was said once in a movie: They weep when getting married, and sing going off to war. Large cities, such as Moscow and St. Petersburg, are showing off the latest models of executive cars (always full option) and open up new boutiques of top couturiers almost daily. Nevertheless as soon as one gets outside the urban area, running water is considered a luxury. Technology as a whole was never Russias strongest asset. This means that some technological advances considered a must-have in the west are still ignored in this country. For example, the quality of agricultural machinery is almost at the pre-historic level. ...

- Machiavelli - 3,021 words
... eferring to the notorious but often also highly misunderstood cynical character of Machiavelli's analysis, I want to concentrate in the means, not in the legitimacy of the polities, or in the question of whether their goal is genesis, restoration, defence, or destruction of a polity's existence and liberty. The means, namely, ultimately reveal many relevant features of a polity's character: whether its power is built upon legitimacy and liberty, or upon coercion and terror. Those admirers of Machiavelli, who read his works in a selective way, or out of their historical context, tend to overemphasise the cynical character in the thinking of Machiavelli, who wanted to appear a worthy advis ...

- Modern History Of Russia - 777 words
Modern History of Russia Modern History of Russia The reigns of Peter I and Catherine the Great in the late 1600s and the 1700s marked the beginning of Russia's establishment as a major European power. These rulers attempted to westernize the traditional society of Moscow, and they ambitiously expanded Russian territories. In the early 1800s, Alexander I began to carry out further plans to westernize the government by attempting to create a Duma, or representative body. However, Russia became involved in the Napoleonic Wars and played a key role in the alliance that overthrew French emperor Napolean I. This firmly established Russia as a major power in Europe. The influence of Western Europe ...

... rmer rivals, so they have chosen to counter it. They have participated in several European security meetings and are no stranger to dealings with the EU, but are too proud to accept membership. To compensate for this over sized ego on the global market, they depend on the members of the CIS, who are also encouraged to avoid contact with NATO as well. At times Moscow has been known use pressure tactics on the countries to get its way. It would seem that Russian influence is as important to Moscow as the nation's security. In the Caucasus, Moscow is supporting both Karabakh and Abkhazia, two nations who have had longstanding disputes. This move allows Russia to play both sides and still re ...

- Russian Treaty Thing - 1,856 words
Russian Treaty Thing To most students and a good part of the rest of American society, the issues which have come to surface and shed blood over miles of terrain are intricate and internal, issues which cant be put to rest by signing a piece of paper or so called treaty. The internal structure of Russia has been weakened time and time again for the past decade and the problems and disgruntled begin to lash out as the lack of concern becomes more and more obvious. Since the recent assignation attempt, the fourth on the life of Aslan Maskhadov and the first in his capacity as President of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria on July 23, 1998, combined with the vast scale of organized crime, abduct ...

... a strong sexist attitude and women found it hard to find decent employment, and most women were expected to also take care of household duties as well. Women were also very scarce in government. Relations among the different ethic grouped which lived within the Soviet Union were very tense and sometimes openly hostile. The fact that the Russian language was the language in which all political transactions had to occur in and it was encouraged to be learnt, with the purpose of trying to make a single Soviet culture made this tension even stronger. The education system in the Soviet Union also caused tension because it was set up around a motive to teach students to be obedient to the Com ...

- The Spread Of Nuclear Weapons A Debate - 1,074 words
The Spread Of Nuclear Weapons- A Debate This book is structured as a debate between the authors on the subject of nuclear proliferation. Waltz argues that because nuclear weapons 'will never the less spread,' the end result will be stabilizing. His main point is that 'nuclear weapons make wars hard to start' and that even radical states will act like rational ones because of the mutually deterrent effort of nuclear weapons. Sagan . . . fears the worst because of 'inherent limits in organizational reliability. He contends that the parochial interests of professional military leaders in emerging nuclear states, who will tend to see war as 'inevitable' and skeptically view any nonmilitary alter ...
