Kyiv, Ukraine

Kyiv, Ukraine




Roman Adrian Cybriwsky

'Kyiv, Ukraine: The City of Domes and Demons' is a pioneering case study of urban change from socialism to the hard edge of a market economy after the fall of the Soviet Union. It looks in detail at the historic capital of Ukraine - Europe's seventh-largest city - with emphasis on the changing social geography of the city, on urban development, and on critical problems such as official corruption, social inequality, sex tourism, and destruction of historical ambience. The book is based on fieldwork and an insider's knowledge of the city, is written in an engaging style, and is nicely illustrated with numerous photographs by the author. A beautiful city that has been known for its great river, the Dnipro, and for so many spectacular churches capped with golden domes that it was once called a New Jerusalem, is today being devoured by demons of capitalist greed and corruption.

Kyiv, Ukraine




Roman Adrian Cybriwsky

The unrest and violence in Ukraine in recent years shocked the world, and the region's long-term future remains troublingly uncertain. Focusing on the difficulty of Kiev's transition from socialism to market democracy, this book demonstrates how Ukraine reached this turbulent point. Roman Adrian Cybriwsky delves deeply into the changing social geography of the city, recent urban development, and critical problems such as official corruption, inequality, sex tourism, and the heedless destruction of the city's historical architecture - all difficulties that have contributed incrementally to Ukrainian citizens' anger against their government. This thoroughly revised edition brings Cybriwsky's account of events and their ramifications fully up to date, offering the clearest picture we've had yet of what has happened - and what is likely still to come - in Ukraine.

Neuromarxism




Josè Luis Paolini

How do we make our political decisions? What are emotions? The human brain and the manipulation of its illusions by the capitalist system. Everything we do depends on the economy. Neuromarxism as a new tool to try to understand the difficulty of acquiring class consciousness. Because it is such an important task, it is essential that its understanding should not stay only at the level of the Marxist leadership, but be known and shared to the working class. That is why a book like Neuromarxism becomes indispensable. In short: to know our class position as a fundamental requirement for the road to socialist revolution.
