Or perhaps there is some truth in the old adage that love is blind. They also publish an interview with historian Diane Ducret, whose book Femmes de dictateur , or "dictators' women," surpringly hit the bestseller list. According to Ducret, Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin spent more time penning love letters than writing political dispatches. In extracts published in the magazine, there are alarming stories, such as orgies in Pyongyang under Kim Il-Sung. But there are also stories of tenderness in relationships, such as Iranian Ayatollah Khomeini doing the dishes so that his wife wouldn't have to.
And there is a surprising variety among the women. Milosevic' s wife Mirjana Markovic was a political manouverer and remains convinced her husband was a good patriot. Saddam Hussein had his sex slaves, and a Greek lover who now lives in Sweden. Yet his wife Sajida is one of the most impressive partners, according to the historian, due to her dignity in the face of adversity.
The historian says that uncovering these stories ruins our intellectual comfort that dictators responsible for some of the worst atrocities of the 20th century have a human side. In Marianne 's science pages, there are stories of the weird and wonderful. One of my favourites is a new species of chameleon that has been discovered, which is only 2,5 mm long. The article is complete with a photograph of the animal, barely the size of a match head.
Another science story from the pages of Marianne looks at "space trash.

And these objects, which are spinning at kilometres per second, could collide with functioning satellites. According to some experts, telecommunications satellites could be rendered unusable in years unless they are cleaned up. Scientists in Switzerland have proposed an 8-million euro prototype called "Clean Space One," which could be launched in to hoover up the space detritus. Marianne also wonders whether the test-tube hamburger is the solution to feeding the world whilst protecting animals. Scientists have managed to grow meat in the laboratory from a cell culture.
Apparently, it is a funny colour, tasteless and costs , euros. So perhaps you won't find it in MacDonalds for a while. The bomb blast in Bangkok last week is suspected to have been carried out by Iranians. It is the lastest in a series of attacks by both sides. According to Le Point , there is no mystery as to what is going on whilst Iran has been targeting Israeli embassies: Israel has been assasinating Iranian nuclear scientists. Israel will not tolerate nuclear arms in the region, apart from its own.

Michigan, Michigan University Press, Translated from the French by Lisa Godin-Roger A thoughful examination of how communism was instituted, debated, and "live" in the workplaces and in state enterprises of East Germany. She then analyzes the enterprises themselves and the social, generational, and gender tensions that had a profound impact on the lived experience of socialism. Paris, Belin, , pages. Nazism across Borders argues that Nazi social policies were part of transnational exchanges and processes.
Writers into Intellectuals, Culture into Politics: Grappling with History in the NRF,
Beyond territorial conquest, the Nazis planned to export and internationalize their version of welfare, and promoted a new kind of internationalism, pitched as a superior alternative to its liberal and Communist contenders. Since the late nineteenth century, the 'German social model' had established itself as a powerful route for escaping from the precarious conditions associated with wage work. The Nazis capitalized on this reputation, continuing some elements, but also added new measures, mainly to pursue their antisemitic, racist, and highly aggressive goals.
The contributions in this collection shed new light on the complex ways in which German and Nazi ideas were received and negotiated by non-German actors and groups around the world before the Second World War. Why were they interested in what was going on in Germany?
To what extent did Nazi policies emulate programmes elsewhere. However, the persuasion that social and economic processes could and should be regulated was by no means limited to them.
Intense debates on these issues developed already during the First World War in Europe and became globalized during the World Economic crisis. During the Cold War, such discussions fuelled competition between two models of economic and social organisation but they also revealed the convergences and complementarities between them. This ambiguity, so often overlooked in histories of the Cold War, represents the central issue of the book organized around three axes.
First, it highlights how know-how on planning circulated globally and were exchanged by looking at international platforms and organizations.
The volume then closely examines specificities of planning ideas and projects in the Communist and Capitalist World. Finally, it explores East-West channels generated by exchanges around issues of planning which functioned irrespective of the Iron Curtain and were exported in developing countries. The volume thus contributes to two fields undergoing a process of profound reassessment: the history of modernisation and of the Cold War.
Global Cold War seen from the perspective of social and economic planning Analysis of circulation of ideas irrespective of the Iron Curtain Fresh look at the transnational history of international organizations in the bipolar world. Europe, Amsterdam University Press, When the Second World War ended, Europe was in ruins.
Yet, politically and socially, the years between and were a time of dramatic reconfigurations, which proved to be foundational for the making of today's Europe. Seeking Peace in the Wake of War: Europe, hones in on the crucial period from the beginning of the end of Nazi rule in Europe to the advent of the Cold War. Through a series of interrelated case studies that span the entire continent, it demonstrates how the everyday experiences of Europeans during these five years shaped the transition of their societies from war to peace.
The authors explore these reconfigurations on different scales and levels - the local and regional, the ethnic and national, and the international - with the purpose of enhancing our understanding of how wars end.
