On the Threshold of XXI Сentury
One of the most important problems for Kazakhstan in the early 1990s was the need to choose the path of transition. And not only for Kazakhstan, but also for all other post-Soviet countries. All the beginning and the middle of the 90s passed on a wave of hot discussions filled with proposals for political reforms, various interpretations of the current situation, and often accusations against each other. Around that time, Nazarbayev's book "On the Eve of the 21st Century", about which we all know, was published. Since all the discussions at that time were related to the development of the state and society, they somehow touched upon the state power as well, and, of course, a considerable part of the participants of those battles criticized the state course, the embodiment of which was the figure of the President. The book "On the threshold of the XXI century" was a worthy answer to opponents, and it covered the main range of issues of the time, including the author's position on the Soviet past, the formulation of his own vision of reforms in politics and economics and a view of the role of Kazakhstan in the region and in the world, its "civilizational dislocation".
The Critical Decade
The book of the First President Nursultan Nazarbayev tells about the changes and events that have taken place in the world and in the Republic of Kazakhstan over the past 10 years.
Epicenter of the World
The 20th century. It's a time when the universe was imagined as a particle and the particles turned out to be the whole universe. This is the time when man first disturbed the eternal peace of the atom and he "snapped", showing himself stronger than the scientific imagination.
The awakened power proved that it was not just an object to satisfy human curiosity and a part of the world, but something more. That it is above and beyond the world, that it is not a man who determines its fate, but on the contrary, in its infinite energy - the fate of humanity.
People have learned to control the energy of the core, but have not learned to control themselves. They lost their trust in man, but gained trust in nuclear power.
However, the ‘military’ atom has long lived its own life. It is hard to find and even harder to destroy. It cannot be targeted because the target is you. It cannot be seen in the eyes, because there is absolute evil. He cannot be trusted, because his reciprocity is not friendship, but slavery. How will such trust of a person turn out? And when will mankind return its trust in itself?
This book is not about the limits of knowledge and not about the recipes for reevaluating "nuclear" values. This book is a reflection on the progressive danger of the dictate of force over the mind and the difficult search for humanity's formula of ‘nuclear’ safety.
