Changes in U.S. Policy on Africa in the New Administration: What will it mean for AFRICOM?

Jul 07, 2011
U.S. policy is dictated by global political and economic realities as well as domestic U.S. policy priorities. Not only is President Obama faced with the stark reality of an America perceived by many to have lost its moral compass in an increasingly multi-polar world where American power and resource capacities are dwindling and its leadership role being challenged, but the priorities of policy and resource allocation must remain for the short and near-terms on the domestic economic crisis, the two unpopular wars he has inherited and traditional national interest priorities. In the realm of foreign affairs, this means that Europe, Russia, the Middle East, Japan and China will continue to be the highest priorities and, as the developing world intersects with those policy priorities, it will be mostly in the form of India, Brazil, and, perhaps, South Africa. more

Godio, Julio. Argentina: Luces y sombras en el primer año de transición. Las mutaciones de la economía, la sociedad y la política durante el gobierno de Duhalde. (Enero-Diciembre de 2002). Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2003

Jul 07, 2011
Este libro se dedica al análisis de las mutaciones del 2002 en la economía, la sociedad y la política, durante el gobierno de tipo neodesarrollista presidido por Eduardo Duhalde, constituido a partir de un amplio acuerdo parlamentario. Este gobierno ha buscado desmontar progresivamente los conflictos y contradicciones generados por una crisis global (económica, política, social y cultural). Es un proceso con luces y sombras, porque algunos asuntos han sido resueltos y otros no. La economía ha mejorado levemente, pero la crisis global continúa. La pobreza, el desempleo masivos persisten. El final de esta etapa de transición está abierta. Diferentes líneas de fuerza política pugnan por acceder al poder. La democracia necesita una gran reforma para subsistir. La caída del gobierno de la Alianza inaugura un fin de época, y se abren diferentes alternativas políticas dentro de una nueva etapa histórica en este país, en un contexto internacional de globalización mundial capitalista y de desequilibrios crecientes entre los países del norte y del sur; fenómenos que seguirán condicionando el futuro de la Argentina. Éste es un libro que ayudará al lector a ubicarse dentro del cuadro político institucional y electoral actual. more
