Cold War: Hungarian Revolution - part 3/5
1953 - 1961 Thaw is conceivable with Stalins death. Khrushchev outmaneuvers Malenkov for power and visits the West. Germans, Poles and Hungarians attempt to rise against Soviet rule. In 1956, an uprising in Hungary is ruthlessly crushed by Soviet tanks. The U.S., pledged to contain rather than overthrow communism, does nothing.

1 Migrants and borders

These videos look at the issue of ‘gating’ in the context of border control policies and practices concerning international migrants.

4.1 The Milky Way

Figure 1 showed two spiral galaxies: NGC 5548, which has an active nucleus, and NGC 3277 which does not. If we accept that AGN are the result of accretion on to supermassive black holes at the centres of the galaxies which harbour them, it is natural to ask the question whether galaxies like NGC 3277, which do not have active nuclei, are without

17.508 The Rise and Fall of Democracy/ Regime Change (MIT)
Coups, civil wars, revolutions, and peaceful transitions are the "real stuff" of political science. They show us why politics matters, and they highlight the consequences of political choices in times of institutional crisis. This course will help you understand why democracies emerge and why they die, from ancient times to the recent wave of democratization in Southern Europe, Eastern Europe, and the developing world. Few things are more dramatic than the collapse of a political system, whether

I wake to a radio-alarm. It's controlled by a small computer that lets me set the time I want to wake up and the radio programme that will wake me.

I prepare breakfast on a cooker which has a small computer that controls the clock, timer, and other functions such as oven temperature.

I take my dog for a walk. She has a ‘microchip’ (i.e. a very small simple computer) implanted under her skin that will enable her to be traced if she is lost or stolen.

2.2 Theories, documents and knowledge

Documentary evidence is often messy and inconsistent, and even where it seems to be ‘factual’ (for example in the form of official records) its precise meaning in terms of wider social processes is far from clear. There is uncertainty about what it means, as well as the representation of uncertainty and diversity in the images. In every case, the meaning of the evidence is dependent on interpretation, that is, the part of the theory we employ to understand what is going on.
