EUROPA ANTE UNA CRISIS GLOBAL
Víctor Pérez-Díaz compiles in Europa ante una crisis global. Economía, geoestrategia, sociedad civil y valores a set of articles written by fourteen experts from the different fields of the social sciences and from different countries. Amongst them are Robert Kaplan, Josef Joffe and Juergen Donges. The work points out the economic and geostrategic difficulties, as well as those relating to civil society and values, which have gathered and grown in recent years to such a point that they risk Europe’s prestige, existence and cultural and political identity.
LINCOLN. AHORA, Y PARA SIEMPRE, LIBRES
Martín Alonso has recovered Abraham Lincoln’s political and moral thinking in Ahora y para siempre, libres. Abraham Lincoln y la causa de la Unión and has analysed nineteen of his political speeches. The indissolubility of the Nation, the threat of secessionism, and the defence of the Constitution as “a guarantor of individual liberty and citizen equality before the law” are some of the issues considered by the speeches and comprised in the book.
LA CONSTITUCIÓN DE LA NACIÓN
The Professor of Political Science Ángel Rivero, carries out in La Constitución de la Nación. Patriotismo y libertad individual en el nacimiento de la España liberal a study of “patriotism as the common defence of individual liberty and of the nation in the citizen assembly for the protection of their rights”. Rivero denounces how nationalism has made societies that endure it renounce the value of these concepts until they have become “unrecognizable”.
DESMONTANDO EL PROGRESISMO
The Professor of Political Science and writer Edurne Uriarte, seeks in her latest book, Desmontando el progresismo. La izquierda en sus cavernas to dismantle the “progressive myth” and expose some of its most disturbing caves", as well as probe whether there is “a powerful alternative capable to lead”. In her book, Uriarte warns as well that “the most moderate wing of progressive thinking has been wolfed down by the radical wing so the caves are going to become even deeper”.
