Liao Yiwu, Die Kugel und das Opium

Am frühen Morgen des 4. Juni 1989 mobilisierte die chinesische Regierung die Volksbefreiungsarmee, um die friedlichen Demonstrationen Zehntausender Studenten niederzuschlagen, die mehr Freiheit und Demokratie forderten. Am Platz des Himmlischen Friedens richteten sie ein Massaker an, das die Welt schockierte. Wie viele Menschen die Panzer niederrollten, wie viele Studenten von Soldaten erschossen oder zu Tode geprügelt wurden, gab die chinesische Regierung nie bekannt.
Liao Yiwu, der über das Massaker ein Gedicht verfasste und dafür vier Jahre inhaftiert wurde, führte über Jahre hinweg heimlich Interviews mit Augenzeugen und Angehörigen der Opfer. Entstanden ist ein ebenso schockierendes wie bewegendes Zeugnis der unfassbaren Ereignisse vom 4. Juni und eine Verneigung vor den mutigen Menschen, die für ihre Überzeugungen mit ihrem Leben einstanden.

He befriended Che Guevara in Bolivia, Salvador Allende in Chile and Patrice Lumumba in the Congo. He reported on the fighting that broke out between Honduras and El Salvador in 1969 after their matches to determine which one of them would qualify for the 1970 World Cup. By the time, he returned to Poland he had witnessed twenty-seven revolutions and coups and been sentenced to death four times. “The Soccer War” is Kapuscinski’s story, his eyewitness account of the emergence of the Third World.

The Road to Political Democracy

The Road to Political Democracy is two books in one.
In the first part it shows the growth of democracy, through the enhancement of its four main Aristotelian features: the rule by turn, the rule of law, education and the role of the middle class.
In its second part it describes and cites the historical milestones in the evolution of the democratic regime. It covers twenty-five centuries of evolution, starting with Plato’s and Aristotle’s works in Greek Antiquity to today’s question as to whether democracy is a universal value.
