The privatization of peacekeeping : exploring limits and responsibility under international law
Cameron, Lindsey, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2017
Foreword / Marco Sassòli -- Introduction -- Part I. UN use of PMSCs. 1. Contracting by the UN: policy and practice -- 2. Survey of existing opinion and practice on the possibility of PMSCs as the military component of a UN peace operation -- Part II. The legal framework of UN peace operations and the use of PMSCs. 3. The legal basis for peacekeeping/peace operations -- 4. Principles of peacekeeping -- 5. PMSCs as the military or police component of the peace operation -- 6. The law applicable to peace operations -- Part III. PMSCs and direct participation in hostilities. 7. The status of PMSC personnel under IHL -- 8. The impact of civilian status on the rights and duties of PMSCs: direct participation in hostilities -- 9. The use of force by PMSC personnel in self-defence -- 10. The use of force in self-defence in peace operations -- 11. Human rights law -- Part IV. Responsibility. 12. Attribution of the actions of PMSCs active in peace operations to states -- 13. Responsibility of international organizations -- 14. Implementation of responsibility -- General conclusion.

Private military and security companies (PMSCs) have been used in every peace operation since 1990, and reliance on them is increasing at a time when peace operations themselves are becoming ever more complex. This book provides an essential foundation for the emerging debate on the use of PMSCs in this context. It clarifies key issues such as whether their use complies with the principles of peacekeeping, outlines the implications of the status of private contractors as non-combatants under international humanitarian law, and identifies potential problems in holding states and international organizations responsible for their unlawful acts. Written as a clarion call for greater transparency, this book aims to inform the discussion to ensure that international lawyers and policy makers ask the right questions and take the necessary steps so that states and international organizations respect the law when endeavouring to keep peace in an increasingly privatized world.

Emotional choices : how the logic of affect shapes coercive diplomacy
Markwica, Robin, author
Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2018
Why do states often refuse to yield to military threats from a more powerful actor, such as the United States? Why do they frequently prefer war to compliance? International Relations scholars generally employ the rational choice logic of consequences or the constructivist logic of appropriateness to explain this puzzling behavior. Max Weber, however, suggested a third logic of choice in his magnum opus 'Economy and Society': human decision making can also be motivated by emotions. Drawing on Weber and more recent scholarship in sociology and psychology, Robin Markwica introduces the logic of affect, or emotional choice theory, into the field of International Relations.

Moore, John Huxford and Jennifer B. Bethmann

The corruption of public officials in the United States and its corrosive impact on public policy, political stability and democratic institutions, earns it a spot among the most critical public crises of the last decade. There have been scandals involving elected officials across the political spectrum from local elected officials up to the White House, involving conflicts of interest, campaign fundraising and political elections. At the heart of many scandals is the discretionary power of public officials to make decisions based on personal interest, often leading to corruption. Understanding the nature and etiology of corruption is important to drafting controls on discretion and rules for accountability. While strict regulation and oversight mechanisms have previously been designed to encourage ethical decision-making and punish violators, it is the media and citizens that have increasingly become modern mechanisms of accountability. Corruption of public governance not only undermines the effectiveness of the political system; it also results in corrupt public policymaking on the most pressing issues facing Americans today. This timely and insightful book provides the key elements needed to understand the nature and prevalence of corruption in public governance, as well as the devastating public policy consequences. The chapters explore the implications of public governance corruption on political stability, public trust, and policymaking, as well as recommendations for how to establish controls on discretion and strict regulation to increase accountability and corruption control in public governance.

Marxist theories of imperialism : a history
Noonan, Murray, author
London : I.B. Tauris & Co. Ltd, 2017
Introduction: The three phases of Marxist imperialism theory -- Imperialism as aberration: The reformists: Hobson, Hilferding and Kautsky -- Imperialism as unavoidable consequence of capitalist development: The Revolutionaries: Luxemburg, Bukharin, and Lenin -- Paul Sweezy and Paul Baran: The founders of Neo-Marxist imperialism theory -- Andre Gunder Frank: Underdevelopment, dependency and disenchantment -- Immanuel Wallerstein and the modern world system: Hegemony and the long wave cycles of capitalism -- Samir Amin: A bridge from Neo-Marxism to 'Globalisation-era' Marxist theorising -- Empire according to Hardt and Negri -- The big Three: Globalisation, empire, state and the third phase of Marxist Imperialism theory.

For Marxists, imperialism is the highest stage of capitalism. Critical analysis of imperialism has been a feature of Marxist throughout the twentieth century. The conceptualising and theorising of imperialism by Marxists has evolved over time in response to developments in the global capitalist economy and in international politics. Murray Noonan here provides the first complete analysis of Marxist theories of imperialism in over two decades. Presenting three phases of imperialist theories, he analyses and compares 'Classical', 'Neo' and 'Globalisation-era' Marxist theories of imperialism. The book moves chronologically, tracking the origins of imperialism theorised by J.A. Hobson at the beginning of the twentieth century up to the present day. He critically identifies and engages with a new 'Globalisation-era' phase of Marxist imperialism theory. Through a detailed scholarly analysis of the history and evolution of these theories, Noonan offers vital new perspectives on imperialist theory and its relevance and application in the twenty-first century.--

Europe's relations with North Africa : politics, economics and security
Yousef, Adam, author
London : I.B. Tauris, 2017
"The rapid evolution of events in the European, Middle Eastern, and North African spheres has reinvigorated the debate on Euro-Mediterranean relations. Since 1995 these relations have operated under the auspices of the Barcelona Process, which laid the foundations for three initiatives that define European policy towards neighbouring states: the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership, the European Neighbourhood Policy, and the Union for the Mediterranean. This book scrutinises these initiatives through a socioeconomic prism. Adam Yousef reviews how appropriate these initiatives have been in promoting socioeconomic development in North African states, projects the long-term implications of these policies and investigates whether they can reduce the gap in social outcomes across the Mediterranean Basin over time. Using Morocco as a case study, this book employs a mixed-methods approach, combining qualitative and quantitative data as well as economic theory. It reveals not only that the Barcelona Process has had a limited impact on promoting social outcomes in Morocco, but crucially that it is also unlikely to do so in the future, suggesting a new approach may be required"--Back cover.

The national question and electoral politics in Quebec and Scotland
Bélanger, Éric, author
Montreal : McGill-Queen's University Press, [2018]
The "national question" as an electoral issue in Quebec and Scotland -- Party behaviour in Quebec -- Party behaviour in Scotland -- Voter behaviour in Quebec -- Voter behaviour in Scotland -- Electoral politics in two substate nations.

"In Quebec and Scotland, questions of constitutional change, national identity, and national grievance play an important role in the electoral calculations of political parties and voters. Taking a strong stance on the national question can have strategic benefits both for parties pushing for greater autonomy and for those endorsing the status quo. In this in-depth look at issue voting, authors Éric Bélanger, Richard Nadeau, Ailsa Henderson, and Eve Hepburn examine how the national question affects political parties and voter behaviour in both substate nations. Through party manifestos, interviews with legislators, and opinion survey data, this book demonstrates that calls for constitutional change influence political debate, competition, voter choice, and the outcome of elections not only within Quebec and Scotland but also across Canada and the United Kingdom. Minority nationalist parties, the authors show, can gain support by claiming ownership of issues with widespread public agreement, such as self-determination and protecting the identity and interests of the nation. A comprehensive analysis of recent electoral politics, The National Question and Electoral Politics in Quebec and Scotland greatly enhances our understanding of the electoral impact of substate nationalism."--

Iran nuclear accord and the remaking of the Middle East
Entessar, Nader, author
Lanham, Maryland : Rowman & Littlefield, [2018]
Iran nuclear negotiations : a substantive chronology -- The Iran nuclear accord revisited -- The nuclear accord and international relations theory -- The nuclear accord, international law, and the legal status -- Iran and the drivers of the nuclear accord -- The nuclear accord and the re-making of Iran's foreign policy -- The nuclear accord and the new Persian Gulf geopolitics -- The nuclear accord and regional conflict management : Syria -- The nuclear accord : the prelude to Middle East disarmament?

This book focuses on the final nuclear agreement between Iran and the 5+1 great powers, the ensuing debates around it, and its global and regional ramifications especially in the Middle East. The first section analyzes the agreement through the prism of international relations theories, using a constructivist-critical theory approach. This is followed by an overview of the intense debates in Iran, the West, and other parts of the world, on the nuclear agreement and its various pros and cons, not to mention the connected, yet separate Iran-IAEA agreement. The second section covers Iran's foreign policy and its various priorities, looking in particular at the impact of the nuclear deal on the country's external relations and orientations, contextualized in terms of pre-existing issues and concerns and the profound influence of the nuclear agreement on the perceptions of Iranian power in the region and beyond. The third section then examines the issue of a Middle East nuclear weapons-free zone and the likely consequences of the Iran nuclear deal on this prospect, which, in turn, raises the issue of regional proliferation and counterproliferation. The last section explores some possible various scenarios and the challenges of implementation as a relatively long-term agreement, providing specific policy recommendations for the regional actors and the external powers that are stakeholders in the volatile Middle East.

The only constant is change : technology, political communication, and innovation over time
Epstein, Ben, 1978- author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2018]
Introduction : the elements of political communication change -- The social and technological history of political communication change -- The technological imperative : how and when new communication technology becomes politically viable -- Political choice : the behavioral role in political communication change -- Political choice and campaign communication innovation : why campaigns have the most consistent innovation adoption -- Innovation by political outsiders : why social movements innovate early and why it rarely matters -- Interest group innovation : how different target audiences affect political communication goals -- The stabilization process then and now -- Conclusion : where we are and where we might be headed.

"The overarching goals of political communication rarely change, yet political communication strategies have evolved a great deal over the course of American history. As this book argues, these changes (at least the successful ones) occur during brief periods of dramatic and permanent transformation, are driven by political actors and organizations, and tend to follow predictable patterns each time. Covering over 300 years of such changes - what it identifies as Political Communication Revolutions - the book shows how this process of change happens and why. To do this, Ben Epstein, following an American Political Development approach, proposes a new model that accounts for the technological, behavioral, and political factors that lead to revolutionary political communication changes over time. In this way the book moves beyond the technological determinism that characterizes communication history scholarship and the medium-specific focus of much political communication work. The book identifies the political communication revolutions that have, in the United States, led to four, relatively stable political communication orders over history: the elite, mass, broadcast, and (the current) information orders. It identifies and tests three pattern phases of each revolution, ultimately sketching possible paths for the future"--

Political ecology : the climate crisis and a new social agenda
Roussopoulos, Dimitrios I., author
Montréal, QC : Black Rose Books, [2018]
"The new and greatly expanded edition of the 1991 classic, Political Ecology: the Climate Crisis and a New Social Agenda explains the history of environmental politics and its prospects for the future. Ecological activists, Dimitri Roussopoulos argues, aim for more than protecting the environment; they call for new communities, new lifestyles, and a new way of doing politics. Political Ecology opens by presenting the history of the state management of the environment, then moves to an overview of the great variety of popular responses to the ecological crisis, before finally discussing the main political tendencies offered by the ecology movement. The concluding sections explore prospects for channeling environmentalist aspirations into political alternatives, demonstrating a set of social ecology-inspired successes and insisting on the central role of cities to developing social and ecological alternatives. Finally, a new afterword updates the work for a post-COP21 era by critiquing the limitations of the Paris Accord. This book has been translated into Spanish, Greek, French, German and Turkish."--

Tiempo de fronteras : una visión geopolítica de la frontera sur de México
Villafuerte Solís, Daniel, author
Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas : Universidad de Ciencias y Artes de Chiapas ; San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas : 2017
Introducción -- Las dimensiones de la frontera sur -- La frontera sur en el marco de la geopolítica de Estados Unidos -- Postales de la desfronterización -- La frontera sur y el desarrollo. ¿Desarrollo de qué, para quién y según quién? -- Reflexión final.

"Lejos de los discursos de la potencias, las fronteras no resultan el remedio eficaz para garantizar la seguridad nacional. Con frecuencia, las amenazas a los países no provienen del exterior, sino que los peligros derivan del crecimiento de la brecha de desigualdad social, de la pobreza, la exclusión y la criminalización de la protesta social en cada país. El equívoco de considerar que el "mal" surge del exterior ha llevado a militarizar las fronteras en lugar de propiciar el desarrollo y la participación social y política. Frente a este hecho, en la frontera sur de México se observa un proceso de "desfronterización", de infiltración, que surge de fuerzas sociales que reclaman el libre tránsito por el territorio. En este sentido, Tiempo de fronteras es un texto que tiene el propósito de mostrar los fenómenos estructurales y actuales de la frontera sur de México en clave geopolítica."--Back cover.

"Este libro se compone de una serie de miradas sobre el país en el que nos hemos convertido en estos años. Son problemáticas que aún no hemos resuelto y necesitan respuestas urgentes: la violencia impune y su expresión en el caso de Ayotzinapa; el agotamiento de la legitimidad que no logra recuperarse mediante reformas que no modifican el ejercicio del poder; las vías de participación electoral y no electoral, que muestran los límites de un sistema de baja representación y de escaso margen para establecer los contrapesos ciudadanos a la gobernabilidad del Estado; el litigio y las luchas de los grupos más desfavorecidos: los indígenas, y la impunidad estatal que reproduce los vicios de una dinámica incapaz de impartir justicia. Todas ellas, miradas para intentar comprender las razones del fracaso democrático en México."--Back cover.

Practising EU foreign policy : Russia and the eastern neighbours
Futák-Campbell, Beatrix, author
[Manchester] : Manchester University Press, [2018]
This book is a novel contribution to the 'practice theory' turn in International Relations. It looks at practitioners' approaches to the EU's foreign policy to its eastern neighbourhood, particularly Russia, and offers a new methodology for capturing practices using the analytical approach of Discursive International Relations and the Discursive Practice Model. Drawing on data from the European Council, the European Commission and the European Parliament's AFET committee members, the study concludes that EU practitioners are concerned with the collective EU identity, normative and moral duties and collective security interests when considering EU policy towards Russia and other eastern neighbours. This suggest that practitioners are a lot more pragmatic when it comes to this policy area than previously assumed by the vast literature on the EU as a normative power. --

Facts and fears : hard truths from a life in intelligence
Clapper, James R. 1941- author
New York, New York : Viking, [2018]
Beyond their wildest imagination -- Born into the intelligence business -- Command and controversy -- The peace dividend -- 9/11 and return to service -- The second most thankless job in Washington -- Benghazi -- Consumed by money -- Snowden -- Not a diplomat -- Unpredictable instability -- The election -- Facts and fears.

When he stepped down in January 2017 as the fourth United States Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper had been President Obama's senior intelligence adviser for six and a half years, longer than his three predecessors combined. He led the U.S. intelligence community through a period that included the raid on Osama bin Laden, the Benghazi attack, the leaks of Edward Snowden, and Russia's influence operation during the 2016 U.S. election campaign. Now Clapper traces his career through the growing threat of cyberattacks, his relationships with presidents and Congress, and the truth about Russia's role in the presidential election. He describes, in the wake of Snowden and WikiLeaks, his efforts to make intelligence more transparent and to push back against the suspicion that Americans' private lives are subject to surveillance. Finally, it was living through Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and seeing how the foundations of American democracy were -- and continue to be -- undermined by a foreign power that led him to break with his instincts honed through more than five decades in the intelligence profession to share his inside experience.

"During Latin America's third democratic wave, a majority of countries adopted a runoff rule for the election of the president, effectively dampening plurality voting, opening the political arena to new parties, and assuring the public that the president will never have anything less than majority support. In a region in which undemocratic political parties were common and have often been dominated by caudillos, cautious naysayers have voiced concerns about the runoff process, arguing that a proliferation of new political parties vying for power is a sign of inferior democracy. This book is the first rigorous assessment of the implications of runoff versus plurality rules throughout Latin America, and demonstrates that, in contrast to early scholarly skepticism about runoff, it has been positive for democracy in the region. Primarily through qualitative analysis for each country, the author argues that, indeed, an important advantage of runoff is the greater openness of the political arena to new parties--at the same time that measures can be taken to inhibit party proliferation. In this context, it is also the first volume to address whether or not a runoff rule with a reduced threshold (for example, 40% with a 10-point lead) is a felicitous compromise between majority runoff and plurality. The book considers the potential for the superiority of runoff to travel beyond Latin America--in particular, and rather provocatively, to the United States"--

Thomas Paine : Britain, America, and France in the Age of Enlightenment and revolution
Clark, J. C. D., author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press 2018
"Thomas Paine (1737-1809) was England's greatest revolutionary: no other reformer was as actively involved in events of the scale of the American and French Revolutions, and none wrote such best-selling texts with the impact of Common Sense and Rights of Man. No one else combined the roles of activist and theorist, or did so in the 'age of revolutions', fundamental as it was to the emergence of the 'modern world'. But his fame meant that he was taken up and reinterpreted for current use by successive later commentators and politicians, so that the 'historic Paine' was too often obscured by the 'usable Paine'."--Page 4 of cover.

At the centre of government : the prime minister and the limits on political power
Brodie, Ian author
Montreal : McGill-Queen's University Press, [2018]
"This exhaustively researched and deftly written book offers a first-hand view of the inner workings of the Canadian federal government, with a particular focus on the interplay between the Prime Minister's Office, the Privy Council Office, the federal cabinet, and the role backbench MPs, and parliamentary committees. Brodie argues that the various workings of the PMO, PCO, the cabinet, parliamentary committees, and the role of backbench MPs puts a lie to the proposition that the prime minister has evolved into the role of a dictator of sorts with unchecked control over the levers of political power. He offers a much-needed corrective to the dominant thinking that a Canadian prime minister holds power without limits, approaching unchecked domination over party, caucus, cabinet, Parliament, the public service, and the policy agenda. In Brodie's view, the prime minister is not a tyrant. There are effective checks on executive power. The golden age of Parliament and the backbencher is probably now. The author's contribution is that of a former insider, someone who worked at the centre and witnessed the circumstances, many of them institutional in character, that constrain the prime minister. The book calls for sober second thought about many of the proposals for reform."--

Human rights : moral or political?
edited by Adam Etinson
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2018
The relevance of history -- The orthodox-political debate -- Morality and law -- Ideals and their limits -- The challenges of politics -- Individuals, borders, and groups.

"Human rights have a rich life in the world around us. Political rhetoric pays tribute to them, or scorns them. Citizens and activists strive for them. The law enshrines them. And they live inside us too. For many of us, human rights form part of how we understand the world and what must (or must not) be done within it. The ubiquity of human rights raises questions for the philosopher. If we want to understand these rights, where do we look? As a set of moral norms, it is tempting to think they can be grasped strictly from the armchair, say, by appeal to moral intuition. But what, if anything, can that kind of inquiry tell us about the human rights of contemporary politics, law, and civil society - that is, human rights as we ordinarily know them? This volume brings together a distinguished, interdisciplinary group of scholars to address philosophical questions raised by the complex status of human rights as both moral rights, on the one hand, and legally, politically, and historically practised rights, on the other. Its original chapters, each accompanied by a critical commentary, explore topics including: the purpose and methods of a philosophical theory of human rights; the "Orthodox-Political" debate; the relevance of history to philosophy; the relationship between moral and legal human rights; and the value of political critiques of human rights."--

Partisans, antipartisans and nonpartisans : voting behavior in Brazil
Samuels, David, 1967- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
1. Introduction -- 2. Partisanship and Antipartisanship in Brazil -- 3. The Strength of Partisan Attitudes in Brazil -- 4. The Rise (and Decline) of Petismo -- 5. Partisanship, Antipartisanship, and Voting Behavior -- 6. Partisanship and Antipartisanship in Comparative Perspective -- 7. Conclusion: Parties, Voters and Brazilian Democracy.

"Conventional wisdom suggests that partisanship has little impact on voter behavior in Brazil; what matters most is pork-barreling, incumbent performance, and candidates' charisma. This book shows that soon after redemocratization in the 1980s, over half of Brazilian voters expressed either a strong affinity or antipathy for or against a particular political party. In particular, that the contours of positive and negative partisanship in Brazil have mainly been shaped by how people feel about one party - the Workers' Party (PT). Voter behavior in Brazil has largely been structured around sentiment for or against this one party, and not any of Brazil's many others. We show how the PT managed to successfully cultivate widespread partisanship in a difficult environment, and also explain the emergence of anti-PT attitudes. We then reveal how positive and negative partisanship shape voters' attitudes about politics and policy, and how they shape their choices in the ballot booth. The idea for this book has deep roots for both of us. Samuels' first exposure to Brazil came in 1992, when he lived in Brasilia, living as a guest of and working as a sort of intern for PT federal deputy Jaques Wagner, who later went on to serve as Minister of Labor and Chief of Sta under Lula, two terms as governor of Bahia, and Chief of Sta and Minister of Defense under Dilma"--

The participation gap : social status and political inequality
Dalton, Russell J., author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2017
Political equality as the foundation of democracy -- Opening political doors -- For richer or poorer, politically speaking -- Civil society mobilizing action -- Age, generations, and participation -- What's a good citizen to do? -- The special case of online activism -- Contextual and inequality / Russell J. Dalton and Steve Weldon -- Is the gap widening? -- The political leanings of the choir -- Democracy in unequal terms.

The dilemma of democracy arises from two contrasting trends. More people in the established democracies are participating in civil society activity, contacting government officials, protesting, and using online activism and other creative forms of participation. At the same time, the importance of social status as an influence on political activity is increasing. The democratic principle of the equality of voice is eroding. The politically rich are getting richer-and the politically needy have less voice. This book assembles an unprecedented set of international public opinion surveys to identify the individual, institutional, and political factors that produce these trends. New forms of activity place greater demands on participants, raising the importance of social status skills and resources. Civil society activity further widens the participation gap. New norms of citizenship shift how people participate. And generational change and new online forms of activism accentuate this process. Effective and representative government requires a participatory citizenry and equal voice, and participation trends are undermining these outcomes. The Participation Gap both documents the growing participation gap in contemporary democracies and suggests ways that we can better achieve their theoretical ideal of a participatory citizenry and equal voice -- Provided by publisher.

The despot's accomplice : how the west is aiding and abetting the decline of democracy

"For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the world is steadily becoming less democratic. Though the true culprits are dictators and counterfeit democrats, the West is often complicit in contributing to the global decline of democracy. In pursuit of short-term economic and political objectives, governments in Washington, London and Brussels ultimately make the world less prosperous and stable. As Brian Klaas argues in this ... new book, this is in nobody's interests, least of all Western democracies--it is time for a rethink. The Despot's Accomplice draws on interviews on the frontlines of the global struggle for democracy, from a poetry-reading, politician-kidnapping general in Madagascar, and Islamist torture victims in Tunisia, to Belarusian activists tailed by the KGB, and tea-sipping members of the Thai junta"--From publisher description.

"Feasting and commensality were vital to the great resilience of the polis, Greece's most characteristic and enduring form of political organization. Exploring a wide array of commensal practices, Feasting and Polis Institutions reveals how feasts defined the religious and political institutions of the Greek citizen-state. Taking the reader from the Early Iron Age to the Imperial Period, this volume launches an essential inquiry into Greek power relations. Focusing on the myriad of patronage roles at the feast and making use of a wide variety of methodologies and primary sources, including archaeology, epigraphy and literature, Feasting and Polis Institutions argues that in ancient Greece political interaction could never be complete until it was consumed in a very literal sense"--

Syria : the making and unmaking of a refuge state
Chatty, Dawn, 1947- author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2018]
"The dispossession and forced migration of nearly 50 per cent of Syria's population has produced the greatest refugee crisis since World War II. This new book places the current displacement within the context of the widespread migrations that have indelibly marked the region throughout the last 150 years. Syria itself has harbored millions from its neighboring lands, and Syrian society has been shaped by these diasporas. Dawn Chatty explores how modern Syria came to be a refuge state, focusing first on the major forced migrations into Syria of Circassians, Armenians, Kurds, Palestinians, and Iraqis. Drawing heavily on individual narratives and stories of integration, adaptation, and compromise, she shows that a local cosmopolitanism came to be seen as intrinsic to Syrian society. She examines the current outflow of people from Syria to neighboring states as individuals and families seek survival with dignity, arguing that though the future remains uncertain, the resilience and strength of Syrian society both displaced internally within Syria and externally across borders bodes well for successful return and reintegration. If there is any hope to be found in the Syrian civil war, it is in this history." -- Publisher's description

A family matter : citizenship, conjugal relationships, and Canadian immigration policy
Gaucher, Megan, author
Vancouver ; UBC Press, [2018]
"What is family? Citing national security and societal welfare, the Harper government adopted a strict definition of family to limit access to citizenship for certain immigrants. Megan Gaucher analyzes the government's assessment of sexual-minority refugee claimants' relationship history, common-law and married spousal sponsorship applications, and marriage fraud, concluding that this narrative of citizenship reinforces racialized, gendered, and sexualized assumptions about the "Canadian family." As many Western governments ponder more restrictive immigration policies, A Family Matter offers a timely examination of the Canadian approach and proposes a course for re-evaluating how family is defined and implementing fairer assessments of immigrants and refugees."--

Protection and empire : a global history
edited by Lauren Benton, Vanderbilt University, Tennessee ; Adam Clulow, Monash University, Victoria ; Bain Attwood, Monash University, Victoria
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
"For five centuries protection has provided a basic currency for organising relations between polities. Protection underpinned sprawling tributary systems, permeated networks of long-distance trade, reinforced claims of royal authority in distant colonies and structured treaties. Empires made routine use of protection as they extended their influence, projecting authority over old and new subjects, forcing weaker parties to pay them for safe conduct and, sometimes, paying for it themselves. The result was a fluid politics that absorbed both the powerful and the weak while giving rise to institutions and jurisdictional arrangements with broad geographic scope and influence. This volume brings together leading scholars to trace the long history of protection across empires in Asia, Africa, Australasia, Europe and the Americas. Employing a global lens, it offers an innovative way of understanding the formation and growth of empires and uncovers new dimensions of the relation of empires to regional and global order"--

Nuclear deterrence strategies remain rooted in Cold War models that do not take into account conflict between regional powers. Brokering Peace in Nuclear Environments offers an innovative theory of brokered bargaining to better understand and solve regional crises. Drawing on the history of conflict in nuclear South Asia, Moeed Yusuf describes the potential for third-party intervention to avert nuclear war. Moving beyond the widely accepted rational deterrence model, Yusuf offers an original perspective rooted in thoughtful analysis of the ways regional powers behave and maneuver in response to the pressures of strong global powers. With depth and insight, this book urges the international community to rethink its approach to nuclear deterrence--back cover.

Challenging theocracy : ancient lessons for global politics
edited by David Edward Tabachnick, Toivo Koivukoski, and Hermínio Meireles Teixeira
Toronto ; University of Toronto Press, 2018
"Commonly perceived as a direct threat to the practice of liberal democracy, the global reemergence of theocratic claims to political rule is a misunderstood development of twenty-first century politics. Analyzing the relationship between religion and politics throughout the Middle East, Africa, and the United States, as well as classical and medieval political philosophical sources, Challenging Theocracy critiques the contemporary formation of theocracy. Providing an account of the origins and influence of theocracy, the chapters in this volume explore ancient texts that articulate the theocratic political ideas that continue to bubble under the surface of political life today. In an effort to consider how regimes extend beyond their immediate institutional and legal forms and find their foundation in timeless ideas, the contributors examine ancient and modern political thought to better understand their persistent power and impact on global politics."--

Return of the barbarians : confronting non-state actors from Ancient Rome to the present

The nature of the pre-modern strategic environment -- Barbarians and the character of the competition -- The return of pre-modern history? -- Altering the state: Decentralization -- Three saints and the barbarian threat -- Settlements, local forces, fortifications, and altering the environment.

"Barbarians are back. These small, highly mobile, and stateless groups are no longer confined to the pages of history; they are a contemporary reality in groups such as the Taliban, Al-Qaeda, and ISIL. Return of the Barbarians re-examines the threat of violent non-state actors throughout history, revealing key lessons that are applicable today. From the Roman Empire and its barbarian challenge on the Danube and Rhine, Russia and the steppes to the nineteenth-century Comanches, Jakub J. Grygiel shows how these groups have presented peculiar, long-term problems that could rarely be solved with a finite war or clearly demarcated diplomacy. To succeed and survive, states were often forced to alter their own internal structure, giving greater power and responsibility to the communities most directly affected by the barbarian menace. Understanding the barbarian challenge, and strategies employed to confront it, offers new insights into the contemporary security threats facing the Western world"--

Düsseldorf : Droste Verlag, 2018
Der fünfte Band der Reihe 'Parlamente in Europa' widmet sich einem zentralen Thema der Parlamentarismusforschung: der Kritik an der repräsentativen Demokratie und der militanten Opposition gegen das parlamentarische System. Beide Phänomene, Parlamentarismuskritik und Antiparlamentarismus, sind Begleiterscheinungen des modernen Parlamentarismus und der Demokratiegeschichte. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes behandeln anhand einzelner Fallbeispiele aus verschiedenen Epochen Europas das breite Spektrum antiparlamentarischer Bewegungen und parlamentarischer Diskussionen. Untersucht werden dabei einerseits die politische Rhetorik und das dabei verwendete Repertoire parlamentskritischer Stereotype und Bilder, sowie in einem zweiten Abschnitt die unterschiedlichen medialen Arenen, in denen antiparlamentarische Diskurse stattfanden. Zuletzt werden die Motive und Praktiken der Akteure näher betrachtet. --

Peacekeeping in Africa : politics, security and the failure of foreign military assistance
Jowell, Marco, author
London : I.B. Tauris, 2018
"In recent decades, African states have developed an impressive infrastructure for training their peacekeepers. In addition, peacekeeping, peacebuilding and associated areas of conflict resolution have become significant areas of employment. Marco Jowell has spent a decade working in peacekeeping training in East Africa - initially as one of the foreign 'Technical Advisers' at the Peace Support Operations (PSO) training centre in Kenya, the International Peace Support Training Centre (IPSTC) and subsequently as a strategic adviser to the Rwanda Peace Academy. Using first-hand experience, he considers how military forces from a variety of African states - with great differences in history, language and political systems and with militaries with different cultures and capabilities - can conduct complicated multinational peacekeeping operations. He shows how regional peacekeeping training centres provide an environment for African elites, predominately military, to interact with each other through shared training and experiences. This process of interaction, or socialisation, improves skills but also encourages cohesion so that future African-led missions will be managed by well-trained officers who are comfortable and willing to work within a regional or Pan-African framework. Jowell shows that part of the aim of peacekeeping training centres is to foster a Pan-African 'outward' looking ideology or disposition as well as improving technical ability. This book will be essential reading for all involved with African military and security studies and analysts of peacekeeping training and operations" --

War, women, and power : from violence to mobilization in Rwanda and Bosnia-Herzegovina
Berry, Marie E., 1983- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Rwanda and Bosnia both experienced mass violence in the early 1990s. Less than ten years later, Rwandans surprisingly elected the world's highest level of women to parliament. In Bosnia, women launched thousands of community organizations that became spaces for informal political participation. The political mobilization of women in both countries complicates the popular image of women as merely the victims and spoils of war. Through a close examination of these cases, Marie E. Berry unpacks the puzzling relationship between war and women's political mobilization. Drawing from over 260 interviews with women in both countries, she argues that war can reconfigure gendered power relations by precipitating demographic, economic, and cultural shifts. In the aftermath, however, many of the gains women made were set back. This book offers an entirely new view of women and war and includes concrete suggestions for policy makers, development organizations, and activists supporting women's rights.--Publisher's summary.

The political class : why it matters who our politicians are
Allen, Peter, author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2018
Recent years have seen an intensification of discussion on the issue of Britain's political class. The question of who our politicians are is front and centre. Do they represent us? Are all politicians just in it for themselves? Are they disconnected from the lives of normal people? In 'The Political Class', Peter Allen argues that our current political class are in many important ways unlike the British people as a whole, and this matters a lot. Our politicians are currently largely drawn from limited sections of society, reflecting patterns of wider social and economic inequality which mean that, for many people, running for political office is almost impossible. This leaves us with a political class that can justifiably be described as uniform in who they are, what they think, and how they behave. Putting the state of British democracy under the microscope, Allen argues that having a more diverse political class would not only better reflect democratic principles of equality, but would also result in more legitimate political outcomes. We need to radically reshape political institutions so that more citizens have a real chance of becoming involved in making the decisions that affect all of our lives. Only by doing this can the gap between the political class and the public be reduced, and British democracy live up to its name.

Inventing the immigration problem : the Dillingham Commission and its legacy
Benton-Cohen, Katherine, author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2018
Introduction -- The professor and the Commission -- The gentlemen's agreement -- Hebrew or Jewish is simply a religion -- The vanishing American wage earner -- Women's power and knowledge -- The American type -- Not a question of too many immigrants -- Epilogue -- Dillingham Commission members and selected staff -- Dillingham Commission reports.

In 1907 the U.S. Congress created a joint commission to investigate what many Americans saw as a national crisis: an unprecedented number of immigrants flowing into the United States. Experts--women and men trained in the new field of social science--fanned out across the country to collect data on these fresh arrivals. The trove of information they amassed shaped how Americans thought about immigrants, themselves, and the nation's place in the world. Katherine Benton-Cohen argues that the Dillingham Commission's legacy continues to inform the ways that U.S. policy addresses questions raised by immigration, over a century later. Within a decade of its launch, almost all of the commission's recommendations--including a literacy test, a quota system based on national origin, the continuation of Asian exclusion, and greater federal oversight of immigration policy--were implemented into law. Inventing the Immigration Problem describes the labyrinthine bureaucracy, broad administrative authority, and quantitative record-keeping that followed in the wake of these regulations. Their implementation marks a final turn away from an immigration policy motivated by executive-branch concerns over foreign policy and toward one dictated by domestic labor politics. The Dillingham Commission--which remains the largest immigration study ever conducted in the United States--reflects its particular moment in time when mass immigration, the birth of modern social science, and an aggressive foreign policy fostered a newly robust and optimistic notion of federal power. Its quintessentially Progressive formulation of America's immigration problem, and its recommendations, endure today in almost every component of immigration policy, control, and enforcement.--

Immigrants and refugees : trauma, perennial mourning, prejudice, and border psychology
Volkan, Vamik D., 1932- author
London : Karnac, 2017
Psychoanalytic theories on adult immigrants and refugees -- Mourning and perennial mourning -- Newcomers' linking objects, linking phenomena, and nostalgia -- Relocated children and their unconscious fantasies -- Living statues -- Double mourning: adolescents as immigrants or refugees -- A refugee family's story -- Prejudice on a psychoanalytic couch -- The other -- Border psychology and fear of newcomers.

There are political, economic, legal, medical, cultural and religious aspects of the present refugee crisis in Europe. Difficulties in border crossings, settlement programs, life-saving issues and security measures present themselves immediately. The refugee crisis also needs to be examined from a psychological view point. Changes in the 21st Century are occurring at an unprecedented pace and scale. Globalization, incredible advances in communication technology, fast travel, recourse limitations, terrorist activities and now the refugee crisis in Europe make psychoanalytic investigation of the Other a major necessity. In part I, case examples illustrate the impact of traumatic experiences, age-factors, large-group identity issues, and trans-generational transmissions. The meanings of the newcomers' utilization of linking objects and linking phenomena are explored. Part II focuses on the host countries. A detailed description of the evolution of prejudice, especially collective prejudice, against the Other is provided. Also, the psychology of borders is presented. The importance of psychoanalysts' experiences in examining societal and political matters and their search for ways to communicate their findings to other mental health workers, educators, professionals dealing with refugee crises, and the public in general, are addressed throughout the book.

New York, NY : New York University Press, [2018]
Preface / Jack Knight -- The problem of clean hands : negotiated compromise in lawmaking / Eric Beerbohm -- Third parties to compromise / Anton Ford -- The moral distinctiveness of legislated law / David Dyzenhaus -- On compromise, negotiation, and loss / Amy J. Cohen -- Compromise in negotiation / Simon Căbulea May -- Uncompromising democracy / Melissa Schwartzberg -- Democratic conflict and the political morality of compromise / Michelle M. Moody-Adams -- The challenges of conscience in a world of compromise / Amy J. Sepinwall -- Necessary compromise and public harm / Andrew Sabl -- Compromise and representative government : a skeptical perspective / Alexander S. Kirshner.

"Do lawmakers have a greater ethical responsibility to compromise than ordinary citizens? How does one rectify what is at stake when lawmakers concede to compromise for the sake of reaching resolution? Is compromise necessarily equalizing and is it a reasonable mode of problem solving and dispute resolution? In this latest installment from the NOMOS series, distinguished scholars across the fields of political science, law, and philosophy tackle the complex set of questions that relate to the practice of compromise and its implications for social and political life in modern societies. The volume, edited by Jack Knight, brings together a range of perspectives--in both disciplinary and substantive terms--on representation, political morality, disagreement, negotiation, and various forms of compromise. The ten essays reflect a variety of considerations across interdisciplinary lines, and provide a new and thought-provoking discussion of the policy, practice, and philosophy of compromise, covering a number of specific topics including alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and conscientious objection. Examining these issues and more, Compromise offers new and thought provoking insights into the pressing issue of the importance of compromise in social and political affairs." -- Publisher's website.

Party-versus-bureaucracy model -- Appendix 2. Party growth model.

"In most non-democratic countries, today governing forty-four percent of the world population, the power of the regime rests upon a ruling party. Contrasting with conventional notions that authoritarian regime parties serve to contain elite conflict and manipulate electoral-legislative processes, this book presents the case of China and shows that rank and-file members of the Communist Party allow the state to penetrate local communities. Subnational comparative analysis demonstrates that in 'red areas' with high party saturation, the state is most effectively enforcing policy and collecting taxes. Because party membership patterns are extremely enduring, they must be explained by events prior to the Communist takeover in 1949. Frontlines during the anti-colonial Sino-Japanese War (1937-1945) continue to shape China's political map even today. Newly available evidence from the Great Leap Forward (1958-1961) and the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) shows how a strong local party basis sustained the regime in times of existential crisis."--

Human rights on trial : a genealogy of the critique of human rights
Lacroix, Justine, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Introduction : from the rights of man to human rights? -- Critiques of human rights in contemporary thought -- Human rights against inheritance, a conservative critique : Edmund Burke -- Human rights versus social utility, a progressivist critique : Jeremy Bentham and Auguste Comte -- Human rights against the rights of God, a theologico-political critique : Louise de Bonald and Joseph de Maistre -- The rights of man against human emancipation, a revolutionary critique : Karl Marx -- Human rights against politics, a nationalist critique : Carl Schmitt -- The 'right to have rights' : revisiting Hannah Arendt -- Conclusion: towards a political understanding of human rights.

"Fragmented social relations, the twin demise of authority and tradition, the breakdown of behavioural norms and constraints: all these are the outcome, according to their critics, of the uses and abuses of human rights in contemporary democratic societies. We are, they say, seeing the perverse effects of a 'religion of human rights' to which Europe has rashly devoted its heart and mind; and the supposed burgeoning of rights, which goes hand in hand with an unchecked rise of expectations, is catapulting Western democracies into an age of never-ending demands. This emerged clearly in France in Spring 2013 during the demonstrations against equal marriage ('mariage pour tous') whose opponents deplored the excesses of a movement-driven left striving for an unbounded extension of rights - from the right to same-sex marriage to the enfranchisement of non-nationals or the right of same-sex couples to adopt"--

The populist temptation : economic grievance and political reaction in the modern era
Eichengreen, Barry J., author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2018]
Chapter 1. The Populist Archetype -- Chapter 2. American Panorama -- Chapter 3. Luddites and Laborers -- Chapter 4. Voyage of the Bismarck -- Chapter 5. The Associationalist Way -- Chapter 6. Unemployment and Reaction -- Chapter 7. The Age of Moderation -- Chapter 8. Things Come Apart -- Chapter 9. Trumped Up -- Chapter 10. Breaking Point -- Chapter 11. Containment -- Chapter 12. Au Revoir Europe? -- Chapter 13. Prospects.

" In the last few years, populism--of the right, left, and center varieties--has spread like wildfire throughout the world. The impulse reached its apogee in the United States with the election of Trump, but it was a force in Europe ever since the Great Recession sent the European economy into a prolonged tailspin. In the simplest terms, populism is a political ideology that vilifies economic and political elites and instead lionizes 'the people.' The people, populists of all stripes contend, need to retake power from the unaccountable elites who have left them powerless. And typically, populists' distrust of elites shades into a catchall distrust of trained experts because of their perceived distance from and contempt for 'the people.' Another signature element of populist movements is faith in a savior who can not only speak directly to the people, but also serve as a vessel for the plain people's hopes and dreams. Going back to the 1890s, a series of such saviors have come and gone in the US alone, from William Jennings Bryan to Huey Long to--finally--Donald Trump. In The Populist Temptation, the eminent economic historian Barry Eichengreen focuses on the global resurgence of populism today and places it in a deep context. Alternating between the present and earlier populist waves from modern history, he argues that populists tend to thrive most in the wake of economic downturns, when it is easy to convince the masses of elite malfeasance. Yet while there is more than a grain of truth that bankers, financiers, and 'bought' politicians are responsible for the mess, populists' own solutions tend to be simplistic and economically counterproductive. Moreover, by arguing that the ordinary people are at the mercy of extra-national forces beyond their control--international capital, immigrants, cosmopolitan globalists--populists often degenerate into demagoguery and xenophobia. There is no one solution to addressing the concerns that populists raise, but Eichengreen argues that there is an obvious place to start: shoring up and improving the welfare state so that it is better able to act as a buffer for those who suffer most during economic slumps. For example, America's patchwork welfare state was not well equipped to deal with the economic fallout that attended globalization and the decline of manufacturing in America, and that played no small part in Trump's victory. Lucidly explaining both the appeals and dangers of populism across history, this book is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand not just the populist phenomenon, but more generally the lasting political fallout that follows in the wake of major economic crises.

The increasingly United States : how and why American political behavior nationalized
Hopkins, Daniel J., author
Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, 2018
Introduction: the increasingly United States -- Meanings of nationalization, past and present -- The nationalization of American elections, 1928-2016 -- Staying home when it's close to home -- Local contexts in a nationalized age -- Explaining nationalization -- E pluribus duo -- Sweet home America -- The declining audience for state and local news and its impacts -- Conclusion.

"In a campaign for state or local office these days, you're as likely today to hear accusations that an opponent advanced Obamacare or supported Donald Trump as you are to hear about issues affecting the state or local community. This is because American political behavior has become substantially more nationalized. American voters are far more engaged with and knowledgeable about what's happening in Washington, DC, than in similar messages whether they are in the South, the Northeast, or the Midwest. Gone are the days when all politics was local.With The Increasingly United States, Daniel J. Hopkins explores this trend and its implications for the American political system. The change is significant in part because it works against a key rationale of America's federalist system, which was built on the assumption that citizens would be more strongly attached to their states and localities. It also has profound implications for how voters are represented. If voters are well informed about state politics, for example, the governor has an incentive to deliver what voters--or at least a pivotal segment of them--want. But if voters are likely to back the same party in gubernatorial as in presidential elections irrespective of the governor's actions in office, governors may instead come to see their ambitions as tethered more closely to their status in the national party." -- Amazon.com.

Transparencia y gobernanza en los gobiernos locales en México
Rina Marissa Aguilera Hintelholher (coordinadora)
CDMX : UNAM, 2017
"La transparencia se ha convertido en una política pública de primera importancia para visualizar la interlocución de la sociedad y el estado. Los rumbos del poder en la vida contemporánea destacan por el despertar de los ciudadanos para llevar a cabo una mejor vigilancia del poder. Una forma de hacerlo es a través de la transparencia, dado que permite que las instituciones del Estado sean objeto de apertura, accesibilidad y visibilidad. Esta circunstancia da paso a una relación más cercana entre los Estados y los ciudadanos, a fin de que la información pública no sea motivo de tratos monopólicos que favorecen a las burocracias del gobierno, en detrimento de los ciudadanos. En este caso, la transparencia se ha convertido en uno de los puntos básicos de la nueva gobernanza, entendida como un patrón conductual del gobierno que se caracteriza porque ahora es más abierto y evidente. En este sentido, la transparencia y la gobernanza se articulan como una forma de estrategia pública que hace posible que la democracia tenga un mayor desempeño. Los desafíos de la transparencia en los marcos de la gobernanza da paso a formas de vida que permiten que los gobiernos estén más comunicados con la sociedad y los ciudadanos, lo cual implica que la vigilancia desde el espacio público sobre lo que realizan es más puntual y eficaz. No obstante la transparencia en el caso de México y a nivel de los gobiernos locales tiene aún zonas de secrecía y opacidad que conducen a problemas de endeudamiento y de tipo político que alimentan la irritación en algunos de ellos, porque los recursos públicos no ingresan a los circuitos de la visibilidad de manera regular, sino que en ocasiones los ciudadanos tienen información que convalida situaciones de bancarrota para daño de la vida colectiva. México necesita de la transparencia y en ese sentido, el libro analiza experiencias disímbolas de gestión local que dan cuenta que el camino a recorrer es aun largo y sinuoso. Los tiempos democráticos que el país vive son un reto para que la transparencia se consolide como una auténtica de la política pública y que los gobiernos locales sean ejemplo institucional de publicidad y apertura irrestricta."--Back cover.
