Poland and Spain in the Interwar and Postwar Period

Colección Universidad

Free sample

 In the second volume comparing Poland and Spain (the comparison being fruit of cooperation between the University of Warsaw and the CEU San Pablo University in Madrid) we concentrate on studying two historical periods of the 20th century, the happy 1920′s of the interwar period and later on at the end of World War II. The two periods have been studied in their corresponding countries but have never been compared in parallel to see their coincidences and differences. Poland and Spain of the time allow for a comparison due to the similar populations, social agricultural models with intensely industrialised local centres and modern structuring processes which lead to a crisis of the very national unity. The selected periods present indispensable similarities which make the study interesting.

Get the story the Fake News media doesn't want you to hear in the #1 New York Times bestseller: a withering indictment of the Deep State plot against Trump and a firsthand account of the real presidency, based on interviews with the Trump family and top administration officials. At this point in American history, we are the victims of a liberal sabotage of the presidency unlike anything we've ever witnessed. Nevertheless President Trump continues to fight every day to keep his promise to Make America Great Again. Today that bold idea has already led to a conservative judge on the Supreme Court, tax reform, and deregulation that has unleashed an economy stronger than anyone could have imagined. But there are dark forces that seek to obstruct and undermine the president and reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election. They are part of a wide-ranging conspiracy that would seem incredible if it weren't being perpetrated openly. Driven by ambition, blinded by greed, and bound by a common goal-to unseat the 45th President of the United States-this cabal is determined to maintain its wrongful hold on national political power. Fox News host Jeanine Pirro uncovers the elements of this conspiracy, including:"Fake news" propaganda,Law enforcement corruption at the highest levels,National security leaks by the intelligence community,Bureaucratic resistance to lawful and constitutional executive orders issued by the duly elected president,Crooked deals with foreign governments by U.S. officials sworn to defend our Constitution.It's about time the American public knows the truth about the plot to bring down the Trump presidency. By the time you've finished this book, you'll agree with Judge Pirro that the only way to stop these hoodlums is to Take Them Out in Cuffs!
 Una vez más, el Front National francés ha vuelto a las portadas de los periódicos como un tema recurrente. Considerado dentro del espectro de la extrema derecha gala, consiguió el primer puesto en las elecciones europeas del 2014 con el 24,9 % de los votos, cifra nunca alcanzada con anterioridad.

El Front se sitúa como la nueva amenaza para la Francia republicana de cara a las elecciones presidenciales de 2017. El presente libro aborda el devenir de la derecha nacional francesa desde la finalización de la II Guerra Mundial hasta nuestros días, ello sirve para centrar los antecedentes del Front National, no tanto en los grupúsculos neofascistas de la época sino más bien en el populismo del movimiento encabezado por Pierre Poujade, surgido en 1953, y en la campaña presidencial de Jean Louis Tixier-Vignancour en 1965.

Otro punto de interés es la evolución sufrida por el propio Front National desde la marginalidad del sistema político, con resultados electorales insignificantes en sus primeros años de vida, hasta las elecciones presidenciales del 2002, donde su líder logró colocarse en la segunda vuelta electoral, desplazando a un tercer lugar al candidato del socialismo francés.

Tras esa fecha, y tras producirse la renovación en la cúpula de la organización, el Front National ha aumentado considerablemente sus apoyos, ampliando sus bases electorales, pero también transformando su discurso, distanciándose con su pasado y presentándose como una alternativa popular republicana, heredera del gaullismo más que de la Francia de Vichy, euroescéptica y defensora del Estado social frente a las políticas neoliberales.
