The contemporary world — military, strategic and related aspects  [cached]
J. H. Marshall
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 1968, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v36i2.1279
Abstract: The focus of this symposium is on strategic matters. My task in this initial presentation deals with the ratios of power in the contemporary world. That word, power, occurs frequently in the discussion of international affairs. Its meaning is not an obvious one, nor are the meanings of most of the other terms which predominate in the discussion of international affairs obvious. I think it advisable, therefore, to clarify some of the basic terms pertinent to the topic.
The Entire World’s a Stage: the EU’s Strategic Presence in the Contemporary International Arena
Scott Nicholas Romaniuk
Romanian Journal of European Affairs (RJEA) , 2011,
Abstract: In the last ten years, an exceptional and diverse series of impacting events—international terrorism, violent conflict situations, war, environmental and natural crises, coups, assassinations and international disputes and challenges—have unfolded. As higher expectations of international bodies in responding to emerging challenges within the international system continue to surface, the shifting structures of actors that deal with those challenges can be readily observed. With the global conflict map undergoing strident change, the focus of strategic analysts is shifting to the global role of the European Union (EU). The EU is seen, more than ever, as a viable and legitimate player that can appropriately respond to existing and anticipated crises in a coherent and coordinated manner, particularly with the application of military force. This article addresses the shifting power structures of the EU as it becomes oriented toward a more unique role that utilizes a ‘soft-hard’ power duality, and current challenges to EU security. It addresses the emerging role of the EU as an international player and examines several cases of EU intervention in distant theatres of operation.

Singidunum Journal of Applied Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Contradictions of nature and the nature of contradictions of post-capitalism, post-socialism and neoliberalism, which are concretized through the world processes and relations of economic crisis, demands humanistic critical examination of theoretical paradigms on which they are based. In the process of theoretical and empirical inquiry, methodological correctness demands to open some important questions: 1) meaning of the concept of dialectics; 2) what does the social science argue about contemporary processes and relations and 3) is the dialectics, and if it is, when, the nature of contemporary processes and relations?
What is the urban in the contemporary world?
Monte-Mór, Roberto Luís;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2005000300030
Abstract: central concepts of contemporary life such as politics, civilization, and citizenship derive from the city's form and social organization. the city expresses the socio-spatial division of labor, and henri lefèbvre proposes to view its transformation within a continuum from the political city to the urban, whereby it completes its domination over the countryside. the city's transformation into the urban takes place when industry brings production (and the proletariat) into that space of power. the city, locus of surplus, power, and the fiesta, a privileged scenario for social reproduction, was subordinated to the industrial logic and underwent a dual process: its centrality imploded, and its outskirts exploded on surrounding areas through the urban fabric, bearing with it the seeds of the polis and civitas. the urban praxis, formerly restricted to the city, re-politicized social space as a whole. in brazil, the urban has its origins in the military governments' centralizing and integrating policies, following vargas's expansionism and kubitschek's developmental interiorization (or occupation of the hinterlands). today, urban-industrial processes impose themselves over virtually all social space, in contemporary extended urbanization.

The city expresses the socio-spatial division of labor, and Henri Lefèbvre proposes to view its transformation within a continuum from the political city to the urban, whereby it completes its domination over the countryside. The city's transformation into the urban takes place when industry brings production (and the proletariat) into that space of power.
