4 novembre 2008: Barack Hussein Obama viene eletto presidente degli Stati Uniti d’America. Difficile immaginare un cammino più improbabile verso la Casa Bianca. Difficile pensare a uno spot migliore per una democrazia statunitense da anni in crisi di sostanza e d’immagine. “Difficile, infine, trovare icona politica più globale del neopresidente, nato quarantasette anni prima alle Hawaii – crocevia storico di meticciamenti e ibridazioni transpacifici – da una madre bianca, originaria del Kansas, e un padre nero e africano. Un padre giunto con il primo contingente di studenti universitari inviati dal Kenya indipendente negli Stati Uniti per formarsi, consolidare i rapporti con il gigante americano e costruire l’élite postcoloniale del nuovo stato.” Da subito, l’elezione di Obama è apparsa come uno dei grandi eventi del nuovo millennio e il racconto è immediatamente diventato leggenda, l’uomo un’icona globale. A febbraio del 2017, Obama sarà un ex presidente: è giunto il momento di guardare alla sua figura e al suo operato al di fuori del clamore e della superficialità del news cycle 24/7. E, soprattutto, valutare l’intero arco della presidenza a partire dalla sua conclusione: il clamoroso passaggio di consegne con Donald Trump. Mario Del Pero, americanista di vaglia, ci guida alla scoperta di un’amministrazione di cui crediamo di sapere tutto, ma che in realtà resta tutta da studiare e da interpretare.

For nearly a half century, from 1945 to 1991, the United States and the Soviet Union maneuvered to achieve global hegemony. Each forged political alliances, doled out foreign aid, mounted cultural campaigns, and launched covert operations. The Cold War also deeply affected the domestic politics, cultures, and economic policies of the two superpowers, their client states, and other nations throughout the world. Teaching the Cold War is both necessary and challenging. Understanding and Teaching the Cold War is designed to help collegiate and high school teachers navigate the complexity of the topic, integrate up-to-date research and concepts into their classes, and use strategies and tools that make this important history meaningful to students. The volume opens with Matthew Masur’s overview of models for approaching the subject, whether in survey courses or seminars. Two prominent historians, Carole Fink and Warren Cohen, offer accounts of their experience as long-time scholars and teachers of the Cold War from European and Asian perspectives. Sixteen essays dig into themes including the origins and end of the conflict, nuclear weapons, diplomacy, propaganda, fear, popular culture, and civil rights, as well as the Cold War in Eastern Europe, Western Europe, East Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the nonaligned nations. A final section provides practical advice for using relevant, accessible primary sources to implement the teaching ideas suggested in this book. (présentation de l'éditeur)

While environmental issues weren’t at the core of the campaign for the U.S. midterm elections, Donald Trump’s climate-change denialism and full assault on the regulations put in place under Barack Obama have generated a broad and often effective response. Transformed into a referendum on Trump and his presidency, the midterm campaign was dominated by issues that amplified the ideological divide and fuelled the President’s demagoguery.

In this stimulating and highly original study of the writing of American history, twenty-four scholars from eleven European countries explore the impact of writing history from abroad. Six distinguished scholars from around the world add their commentaries. Arguing that historical writing is conditioned, crucially, by the place from which it is written, this volume identifies the formative impact of a wide variety of institutional and cultural factors that are commonly overlooked. Examining how American history is written from Europe, the contributors shed light on how history is written in the United States and, indeed, on the way history is written anywhere. The innovative perspectives included in Historians across Borders are designed to reinvigorate American historiography as the rise of global and transnational history is creating a critical need to understand the impact of place on the writing and teaching of history. This book is designed for students in historiography, global and transnational history, and related courses in the United States and abroad, for US historians, and for anyone interested in how historians work.

This article discusses the impact on U.S. nuclear policies of the incident at the Three Mile Island reactor in Pennsylvania in March 1979 by focusing on three interrelated issues: the inescapable connection between the civilian and the military dimensions of the nuclear power; the effective mobilization from below against nuclear energy in 1970s’ America and the ability of anti-nuclear groups to appeal across the political and cultural spectrum; and how the political and cultural transformations of the 1970s challenged the certainties of the previous decades and hindered the development of nuclear energy.

Wide-ranging overview of current scholarship on the Cold War, with essays from many leading scholars. The field of Cold War history has consistently been one of the most vibrant in the field of international studies. Recent scholarship has added to our understanding of familiar Cold War events, such as the Korean War, the Cuban Missile Crisis and superpower détente, and shed new light on the importance of ideology, race, modernization, and transnational movements. The Routledge Handbook of the Cold War draws on the wealth of new Cold War scholarship, bringing together essays on a diverse range of topics such as geopolitics, military power and technology and strategy. The chapters also address the importance of non-state actors, such as scientists, human rights activists and the Catholic Church, and examine the importance of development, foreign aid and overseas assistance.

Donald Trump a été élu. Malgré son impréparation manifeste, sa vulgarité, sa violence verbale déployée à plusieurs reprises contre les minorités, les femmes, les handicapés et les étrangers. Malgré, enfin, un programme politique incompatible avec les dogmes de la globalisation néolibérale, hégémonique depuis longtemps dans la culture politique du Parti républicain.

Trying to predict Donald Trump’s foreign policy is a complex exercise, which inevitably produces vertigo in those bold enough to undertake it. [First lines]
