Fortress Europe: Dispatches from a Gated Continent
For nearly thirty years the Berlin Wall symbolised a divided Europe. In the euphoric after- math of the Cold War, the advent of a new 'borderless' world was hailed, one in which such barriers would become obsolete. Today these utopian predictions have yet to be realised. European governments have enacted the most sustained and far-reaching border enforcement program in history in an attempt to repel migrants seeking work or asylum. Detention and deportation, physical and bureaucratic barriers, naval patrols and satellite technologies: all these form part of the militarised response to immigration adopted by European governments, the human cost of which is often overlooked. These efforts have generated a tragic confrontation between some of the richest countries in the world and a stateless population from the poorest - a clash that occurs within Europe's territorial frontiers and also far be- yond them. Fortress Europe investigates that confrontation on Europe's 'hard borders.' In a series of searing dispatches, Carr speaks to border officers and police, officials, migrants, asylum-seekers, and activists. The result is a unique and ground-breaking critique of Europe's exclusionary borders, and an essential guide to the wider drama of migration that will dominate politics for years ahead.

الدين والدم إبادة شعب الأندلس - ماثيو كار

تنتهي قصة الأندلس، أو أيبيريا الإسلامية، عند الكثيرين عام 1492، ولا يعلمون أن ما يقرب من نصف مليون مسلم ظلوا يعيشون في إسبانيا بعد سقوط آخر الممالك الإسلامية: غرناطة. لكن كيف كانت نهاية الأندلس، وماذا حدث لشعبها؟ هل غادر البلاد إلى شمال إفريقيا، أو غيرها من بلاد المسلمين مع حكّامه المهزومين، أم بقي فيها وعاش تحت الحكم الجديد؟ وماذا حدث لمن قبلوا العيش تحت حكم الممالك الإسبانية، وكيف سارت حياتهم، وكيف كانت علاقاتهم بالدولة؟ هل ذابوا في المجتمعات الجديدة، وتلاشت خطوط الفصل الدينية والثقافية التي كانت تفصلهم عن سكان البلد المسيحيين في زمن الممالك الإسلامية؟ وكيف تعاملت الممالك الإسبانية مع الاختلاف الديني والثقافي للمسلمين الذين خضعوا لسلطانها؟ يجيب كتاب «الدين والدم» عن هذه التساؤلات وغيرها، عبر تناول تاريخي رصين، ومحايد، ومتوازن، وشامل، لقصة المورسكيين ومصيرهم المأساوي، بداية من سقوط غرناطة عام 1492، حتى طردهم النهائي من إسبانيا عام 1614.

The Infernal Machine: An Alternative History of Terrorism
Today, political violence has become the scourge of our world and terrorism is routinely described as a uniquely modern evil. Yet however unprecedented in scope the new terrorist organizations might appear, Matthew Carr argues in this definitive history of terrorism that they are merely offshoots of a spectacular bombing in 1881: the assassination of Tsar Nicholas II by terrorists ...or were they freedom fighters? Thus begins a narrative of extraordinary sweep that Publishers Weekly called 'engrossing, unsettling' and the Boston Globe praised as 'brave and wise' and 'a book for the ages.' In The Infernal Machine, Carr unearths the complex realities of terrorist violence and its indelible impact on nations as different as Italy, Argentina, France, Algeria, Ireland, Russia, Japan, and the United States. Spanning over a century of world history, The Infernal Machine reveals stunning similarities in societies' responses to terrorism despite profound political and cultural differences. Carr demonstrates again and again that the true impact of terrorism has been felt in the overreactions of government and the media to acts of political violence. This encyclopedic and diagnostic primer for our frightening times allows us to see our current predicament against a background of striking historical parallels.

Blood and Faith: The Purging of Muslim Spain
In April 1609, King Philip III of Spain signed an edict denouncing the Muslim inhabitants of Spain as heretics, traitors, and apostates. Later that year, the entire Muslim population of Spain was given three days to leave Spanish territory, on threat of death. In a brutal and traumatic exodus, entire families and communities were obliged to abandon homes and villages where they had lived for generations, leaving their property in the hands of their Christian neighbors. In Aragon and Catalonia, Muslims were escorted by government commissioners who forced them to pay whenever they drank water from a river or took refuge in the shade. For five years the expulsion continued to grind on, until an estimated 300,000 Muslims had been removed from Spanish territory, nearly 5 percent of the total population. By 1614 Spain had successfully implemented what was then the largest act of ethnic cleansing in European history, and Muslim Spain had effectively ceased to exist. Blood and Faith is celebrated journalist Matthew Carr's riveting chronicle of this virtually unknown episode, set against the vivid historical backdrop of the history of Muslim Spain. Here is a remarkable window onto a little-known period in modern Europe - a rich and complex tale of competing faiths and beliefs, of cultural oppression and resistance against overwhelming odds.
