Velika igra 1856. – 1907.: Rusko-britaski odnosi u Središnjoj i Istočnoj Aziji
The Great Game, 1856–1907: Russo-British Relations in Central and East Asiaby Evgeny Sergeev
The Great Game, 1856–1907 presents a new view of the British-Russian competition for dominance in Central Asia in the second half of the nineteenth century. Evgeny Sergeev offers a complex and novel point of view by synthesizing official collections of documents, parliamentary papers, political pamphlets, memoirs, contemporary journalism, and guidebooks from unpublished and less studied primary sources in Russian, British, Indian, Georgian, Uzbek, and Turkmen archives. His efforts amplify our knowledge of Russia by considering the important influences of local Asian powers. Ultimately, this book disputes the characterization of the Great Game as a proto–Cold War between East and West.

Russia and the Arabs: Behind the Scenes in the Middle East from the Cold War to the Presentby Yevgeny Primakov
Part memoir, part history, Russia and the Arabs reveals the past half-century in the Middle East from a viewpoint seldom seen by Westerners. Yevgeny Primakov, formerly the head of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, Foreign Minister, and Prime Minister of Russia, exposes how key political events unfolded through the personal interactions and rivalries among notable leaders from Yasser Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin to Anwar Sadat and Saddam Hussein, whom he knew personally. He shows how the 1967 and 1973 Arab-Israeli wars developed, exposes Russia’s previously unknown role in the 1991 Gulf War, and assesses Russia's Middle East policies alongside those of other foreign players, including the United States. An essential read for everyone interested in world affairs.
Pogled jednog čovjeka na svijet

In this book, Lee draws on that wealth of experience and depth of insight to offer his views on today's world and what it might look like in 20 years.

Iz trećeg svijeta u prvi: Singapurska priča 1965-2000
From Third World to First: The Singapore Story - 1965-2000by Lee Kuan Yew
Few gave tiny Singapore much chance of survival when it was granted independence in 1965. The story of its transformation is told here by Singapore's charismatic, controversial founding father, Lee Kuan Yew. Rising from a legacy of divisive colonialism, the devastation of the Second World War, and general poverty and disorder following the withdrawal of foreign forces, Singapore now is hailed as a city of the future. This miraculous history is dramatically recounted by the man who not only lived through it all but who fearlessly forged ahead and brought about most of these changes. Lee details the extraordinary efforts it took for an island city–state in Southeast Asia to survive at that time.
Kissinger 1923. – 1968.: Idealist
Kissinger: 1923-1968: The Idealistby Niall Ferguson
Niall Ferguson has created an extraordinary panorama of Kissinger's world, and a paradigm-shifting reappraisal of the man. Only through knowledge of Kissinger's early life (as a Jew in Hitler's Germany, a poor immigrant in New York, a GI at the Battle of the Bulge, an interrogator of Nazis, and a student of history at Harvard) can we understand his debt to the philosophy of idealism. And only by tracing his rise, fall and revival as an adviser to Kennedy, Nelson Rockefeller and, finally, Richard Nixon can we appreciate the magnitude of his contribution to the theory of diplomacy, grand strategy and nuclear deterrence. The book also provides an insight into the Vietnam War.
Samurai i vitez: Kako se Japan uspio ekonomski razviti
Samurai and Knight: How Japan managed to develop economicallyby Z. Stiperski, Đ. Njavro, Y. Yamamoto
The connection between geography, nature, culture and society is clearly seen in the Japanese example. Japan has become economically very successful, although it is an isolated archipelago in the Far East, has appeared late in world history, is poor in natural resources and is frequently exposed to natural disasters. The book "dissects" the basics of Japan's successful development and indicates what Croatia could learn from it. It is printed in Croatian, English and Japanese. In the book, the authors try to answer the question of how and why naturally poor and even distant Japan became the economic power in such a short period of time.
Vrijeme Europe: Zapadne sile i raspad Jugoslavije
The Hour of Europe: Western Powers and the Breakup of Yugoslaviaby Josip Glaurdić
Observing through the prism of Western politics towards the breakup of Yugoslavia, this book presents a new view of the end of the Cold War in Europe. Including in the analysis the declassified CIA reports, documents from the administration of George H.W. Bush and the British Foreign Office, evidentiary material used in the processes at the Hague Tribunal, as well as more than forty interviews with former diplomats and politicians from the West and from the former Yugoslavia, book shows that the Realpolitik of the Western powers failed in their intention to support the survival of Yugoslavia, but instead encouraged the JNA and the regime of Slobodan Milošević to violence. Hour of Europe also sheds light on the dramatic conflict of opinion within the Western alliance on possible responses to the Yugoslav crisis. Book identifies the roots of this conflict in the different preferences of the Western powers regarding the role of a united Germany, Eastern Europe, and foreign and security policy in the future of European integration.

Srce Euroazije: Geopolitika političkog prostora
Heartlands of Eurasia: The Geopolitics of Political Spaceby Anita Sengupta
The book investigates how the gained metageographic knowledge influences the understanding of global processes and subsequently transforms into geopolitical thinking with foreign policy implications. The book provides a detailed overview of the writings, both from and outside the "Heartlands" region, which consider the importance of the legacy of Halford Mackinder in the context of significantly changed world situations. In particular, the book seeks to examine how policy creators and strategic thinkers have used these geopolitical concepts as justification for their policy in the region and tries to analyze to what extent this political thinking has been transformed into practice.
