What is political sociology?
Clemens, Elisabeth Stephanie, 1958- author
Malden, MA : Polity Press, 2016
With an entire discipline devoted to political science, what is distinctive about political sociology? This concise book explains what a sociological perspective brings to our understanding of the emergence, reproduction, and transformation of different forms of political order. Crucially, political sociology expands the field of view to the politics that happen in other social settings - in the family, at work, in civic associations - as well as the ways in which social attributes such as class, religion, age, race, and gender shape patterns of political participation and the distribution of political power. Political sociology grapples with these issues across an enormous range of historical and geographic settings, from the intimate relations that constitute family politics to the geo-political scales of war and trade. It requires an analytic toolkit that includes concepts of power, social closure, civil society, and modes of political action. Using these central concepts, What is Political Sociology? discusses the major forms of political order (states, empires, and nation-states), processes of regime formation and revolution, the social bases for political participation, policy formation as well as feedbacks, social movements and social change, and the possibilities for new forms of transnational politics. In sum, the book offers an insightful introduction to this core perspective on social life.

"The concept of extraterritoriality designates certain relationships between space, law, and representation. This collection of essays explores contemporary manifestations of extraterritoriality and the diverse ways in which the concept has been put to use in various disciplines. Some of the essays were written especially for this volume; others are brought here together for the first time. The inquiry into extraterritoriality found in these essays is not confined to the established boundaries of political, conceptual, and representational territories or fields of knowledge; rather, it is an invitation to navigate the margins of the legal- uridical and the political, but also the edges of forms of representation and poetics"--Back cover.

Military missions in democratic Latin America
Pion-Berlin, David, author
New York : Palgrave Macmillan, [2016]
This book demonstrates through country case studies that, contrary to received wisdom, Latin American militaries can contribute productively, but under select conditions, to non-traditional missions of internal security, disaster relief, and social programs. Latin American soldiers are rarely at war, but have been called upon to perform these missions in both lethal and non-lethal ways. Is this beneficial to their societies or should the armed forces be left in the barracks? As inherently conservative institutions, they are at their best, the author demonstrates, when tasked with missions that draw on pre-existing organizational strengths that can be utilized in appropriate and humane ways. They are at a disadvantage when forced to reinvent themselves. Ultimately, it is governments that must choose whether or not to deploy soldiers, and they should do so, based on a pragmatic assessment of the severity and urgency of the problem, the capacity of the military to effectively respond, and the availability of alternative solutions.

Surveillance after Snowden
Lyon, David, 1948-
Malden, MA : Polity Press, [2015]
Introduction: Citizenfour alert! -- Snowden storm -- World watching -- Menacing metadata -- Precarious privacy -- Framing futures.

"In 2013, Edward Snowden revealed that the NSA and its partners had been engaging in warrantless mass surveillance, using the internet and cellphone data, and driven by fear of terrorism under the sign of 'security.' In this compelling account, surveillance expert David Lyon guides the reader through Snowden's ongoing disclosures: the technological shifts involved, the steady rise of invisible monitoring of innocent citizens, the collusion of government agencies and for-profit companies and the implications for how we conceive of privacy in a democratic society infused by the lure of big data. Lyon discusses the distinct global reactions to Snowden and shows why some basic issues must be faced: how we frame surveillance, and the place of the human in a digital world"--Page 4 of cover.

Buddhism, politics and political thought in Myanmar
Walton, Matthew J., author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2017
A brief political history and cast of characters -- Building blocks of a moral universe -- On human nature and the nature of politics -- Order and freedom/liberation: purposes of politics -- What is 'politics' and what constitutes 'participation'? -- Discipline, rights, and morality: 'democracy' in contemporary Myanmar.

"This is the first book to provide a broad overview of the ways in which Buddhist ideas have influenced political thinking and politics in Myanmar. Matthew Walton draws extensively on Burmese language sources from the last 150 years to describe the 'moral universe' of contemporary Theravada Buddhism that has anchored most political thought in Myanmar. In explaining multiple Burmese understandings of notions such as 'democracy' and 'political participation', the book provides readers with a conceptual framework for understanding some of the key dynamics of Myanmar's ongoing political transition. Some of these ideas help to shed light on restrictive or exclusionary political impulses, such as anti-Muslim Buddhist nationalism or scepticism towards the ability of the masses to participate in politics. Walton provides an analytical framework for understanding Buddhist influences on politics that will be accessible to a wide range of readers and will generate future research and debate"--

Le prix de la détente? : la politique française en Hongrie et en Roumanie (1968-1977)
Bouillon, Pierre
Rennes : Presses universitaires de Rennes, 2016
"La France, durant la détente, mena une politique étrangère qui s'appuya sur la particularité, dans le bloc de l'Est, de la Hongrie et de la Roumanie. Celles-ci étaient en effet caractérisées respectivement par une déviation interne et internationale par rapport à la norme soviétique. De la crise tchécoslovaque en 1968 au regain de tensions dans la seconde moitié des années 1970, la politique française dans l'ancienne Europe centrale poursuivit ainsi des objectifs à la fois bilatéraux et multilatéraux. Elle inscrivit son action dans un cadre hérité du passé, mais aussi dans un processus mouvant, celui d'Helsinki, tandis que ses vecteurs d'influence évoluaient et s'enrichissaient. Sur le plan politique, un partenariat difficile fut restauré avec la Roumanie tandis que, pour la première fois, naissait un dialogue suivi avec la Hongrie. Les rapports économiques acquirent, quant à eux, une signification croissante et furent encadrés par l'État. Ils répondirent à la volonté politique de développer les industries de haute-technologie en France, de s'opposer à l'hégémonie des États-Unis en la matière, et de mettre à profit l'asymétrie de développement entre l'Est et l'Ouest pour saper la domination de l'URSS sur son glacis. Cependant, la France dut prendre des risques par rapport aux États-Unis, afin de mener à bien ces opérations industrielles qui pouvaient entrer en contradiction avec les règles mises en place par la superpuissance occidentale. De plus, ces liens se développèrent en dépit de risques pour la sécurité nationale. Néanmoins, et malgré des divergences au sein de l'État, l'ouverture française fut menée de manière globalement cohérente."--Page 4 of cover.

He also explores their inability to win an outright victory at the 2010 election and looks at their decision to share power with the Liberal Democrats.

Public policy, philanthropy and peacebuilding in Northern Ireland
Knox, Colin, 1953- author
London : Palgrave Macmillan, [2016]
Chapter 1. Introduction: Peacebuilding -- Chapter 2: Philanthropy and Peacebuilding -- Chapter 3: Shared Education Case Study -- Chapter 4: Shared Spaces and Services -- Chapter 5: Community Restorative Justice -- Chapter 6: Human Rights Based Approach -- Chapter 7: Atlantic Philanthropies' legacy in Northern Ireland. .

This book examines the role played by one important external stakeholder, Atlantic Philanthropies, a limited-life foundation, in helping to build peace and promote reconciliation in Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland is now referred to as a post-conflict society largely due to the absence of political violence and relatively stable political institutions. These are necessary but insufficient conditions for what Galtung has described as 'positive peace', which requires a more fundamental review of the structural inequalities that contributed to the conflict in the first place. Using detailed case studies the authors illustrate the role played by voluntary and community sector groups, funded by Atlantic Philanthropies, in influencing the public policy agenda and securing long term systemic changes. They also critique the work of Atlantic as a 'pay to play' organization whose original mission moved from funding the higher education sector on the island of Ireland to become a key foundation with a significant role in the peace process.

Decolonizing democracy : power in a solid state
Sanín Restrepo, Ricardo, author
New York : Rowman & Littlefield International, [2016]
Coloniality: decrypting power in a solid state -- First definition of democracy: the hidden people as the dark energy of power -- Difference and simulacra: the poisoned gift of Platonism -- The plastic soul of democracy: power between potentia, potestas, and actuality -- The phantom pain of civilization: against Negrís understanding of Spinoza.

Democracy is the apparent motor of globalization, binding together ideas and institutions such as citizenship, human rights, race, the free market, multiculturalism, development, politics and the economy. This book looks to overturn this dogma and demonstrate that 'liberal' democracy in fact encrypts and naturalizes the horrors of capitalism and of coloniality, while denying true or radical democracy, principally through constitutions and constitutional theory. Ricardo Sanin-Restrepo turns to the colonized, the marginalized, the creolized, and creates two novel concepts of politics, the 'hidden people' and the 'decryption of power' to reach a politics through and of radical democracy. The book shows that democracy is the only space of proper politics and the essential opposition of colonization and power as potestas. Sanin-Restrepo connects post-structuralism, subaltern studies, critical legal studies, de-colonial studies and Caribbean thought to muster the necessary theoretical tools to propose new grounds to decrypt the semblance of democracy that is liberalism and thus to demonstrate that democracy, far from being the standardized rule of the majority, a simple process or an institution, is the true being in the world and of the world.

Political advertising in the United States
Fowler, Erika Franklin, author
Boulder, CO : Westview Press, [2016]
"Political advertising is as important as ever-ad spending records are broken each election cycle, and the volume of ads aired continues to increase. Political Advertising in the United States is a comprehensive survey of the political advertising landscape and its influence on voters. The authors, co-directors of the Wesleyan Media Project, draw from the latest data to analyze how campaign finance laws have affected the sponsorship and content of political advertising, how "big data" has allowed for more sophisticated targeting, and how the Internet and social media has changed the distribution of ads. With detailed analysis of presidential and congressional campaign ads and discussion questions in each chapter, this accessibly written book is a must-read for students, scholars and practitioners who want to understand the ins and outs of political advertising"--

This is an uprising : how nonviolent revolt is shaping the twenty-first century
Engler, Mark, author
New York : Nation Books, [2016]
The strategic turn -- Structure and movement -- The hybrid -- The pillars -- Declare victory and run -- The act of disruption -- The whirlwind -- The dividers -- The discipline -- The ecology of change.

"Strategic nonviolent action has reasserted itself as a potent force in shaping public debate and forcing political change. Whether it is an explosive surge of protest calling for racial justice in the United States, a demand for democratic reform in Hong Kong or Mexico, a wave of uprisings against dictatorship in the Middle East, or a tent city on Wall Street that spreads throughout the country, when mass movements erupt onto our television screens, the media portrays them as being as spontaneous and unpredictable. In This is an Uprising, political analysts Mark and Paul Engler uncover the organization and well-planned strategies behind such outbursts of protest, examining core principles that have been used to spark and guide moments of transformative unrest. This is an Uprising traces the evolution of civil resistance, providing new insights into the contributions of early experimenters such as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., groundbreaking theorists such as Gene Sharp and Frances Fox Piven, and contemporary practitioners who have toppled repressive regimes in countries such as South Africa, Serbia, and Egypt. Drawing from discussions with activists now working to defend human rights, challenge corporate corruption, and combat climate change, the Englers show how people with few resources and little influence in conventional politics can nevertheless engineer momentous upheavals"--

Marketing leadership in government : communicating responsiveness, leadership and credibility
Elder, Edward, author
London : Palgrave Macmillan, [2016]
Chapter 1. Resolving the Listening versus Leadership Dilemma -- Chapter 2. Responsiveness -- Chapter 3. Leadership -- Chapter 4. Credibility -- Chapter 5. Analysing and Advising Governing Leaders.

A very interesting study of the communication strategies of John Key and Barack Obama, showing both their similarities and their differences. It covers the need for politicians to acknowledge opposing views and show they have listened to the public, even if not ultimately agreeing with them.-- David Farrar, Former Political Advisor to the Prime Minister of New Zealand. The book has two excellent comparative case studies that it uses throughout in Barack Obama and John Key. It's insightful, thoroughly up to date, and suitable for use in classes on comparative politics, political marketing, political management and political communication. Additionally, there are a host of useful insights for practitioners. It's easy to read and engaging, meaning you want to keep reading it until the end. I couldn't put it down. I thought it was fascinating. Highly recommended for general audiences, students, scholars and practitioners. There's truly something for everyone in this wonderful book by this promising scholar".-- Ken Cosgrove, Associate Professor of Government, Suffolk University, USA This book explores how contemporary governing leaders can overcome the typical trend of losing a public support in power by following more effective communication strategies. It shows how new forms of communication that emphasise acknowledgement and respect for public criticisms and concerns can be used by governing leaders to show the public that they still have the leadership qualities they entered office with, despite the extra challenges that political office presents. The book outlines a new model, The Contemporary Governing Leaders' Communication Model, through which leaders can communicate their positive personal and professional qualities in government. The book illustrates this model in use through the communication of United States President Barack Obama and New Zealand Prime Minister John Key during their first terms in political office. Edward Elder is a recent PhD graduate from Politics and International Relations at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, whose research focuses on political marketing communication. He published a chapter in Political Marketing in the United States (2014) and an article in the Journal of Nonprofit & Public Sector Marketing.

Appearances of ēthos in political thought : the dimension of practical reason
Hatzisavvidou, Sophia, author
London : Rowman & Littlefield International, [2016]
"What sort of ēthos does democratic politics demand? While many political thinkers argue that democratic ēthics should shape political judgments, the concept of ēthos remains underdeveloped. Appearances of Ēthos in Political Thought responds to this gap in three ways. It begins by identifying the contours of the concept as it has appeared in political thought. Then, drawing on ancient philosophers such as Heraclitus and Protagoras, and contemporary thinkers such as Heidegger, it makes the case for a world-affirming ēthos that can animate individual and collective political action. This book subsequently develops an original interpretation of the ancient concept of metis – the skill and craft of practical political reasoning – showing how this is a vital part of contemporary democratic political action. Such resourcefulness, the book argues, is essential for anyone who, faced by contemporary political, social, and environmental challenges, seeks to create possibilities for action in the name of a more just and equitable life."--Back cover.

Theorizing justice : critical insights and future directions
edited by Krushil Watene and Jay Drydyk
New York : Rowman & Littlefield International, [2016]
One of the Most Important Contributions to Contemporary political philosophy, Rawls's A Theory of Justice, reignited political philosophy and revolutionized how we theorize about justice. Rawls's approach to justice advanced political philosophy in important and valuable ways - most significantly in the way that it showed that political philosophy remained relevant for our lives and our world. Unsurprisingly, over forty years later, social and global realities present theories of justice with new challenges. This volume examines what these new challenges are, and whether contemporary theories are in a position to respond to them. The collection brings together essays that push the boundaries of justice theorizing in new directions, and that begin to construct a new paradigm. The collection contributes to the creation of a platform from which new ideas and new conversations, about the challenges and opportunities for justice in our world, can be further explored and developed.

Power shift : on the new global order
Falk, Richard A., author
London, UK : Zed Books, [2016]
Globalism and globalization : terrorism and state terror -- Toward a new geopolitics -- The post-secular divide -- Why drones are more dangerous than nuclear weapons -- Contours of new constitutionalism -- Horizons of global governance -- Responding to the global crisis -- Toward a global imaginary -- Framing an inquiry : strong societies/weak states -- Disruptive legacies of World War I -- The 4+ logics of global order -- Questioning perpetual war in an era of drone warfare -- Changing the political climate : one individual at a time -- Does the human species wish to survive?

"This book depicts the challenges associated with the emergence of a new global order in which patterns of conflict and the role of traditional military power are in the process of radical flux. Our ideas about global order have yet to catch up with these new behavioral trends, including the rise of non-state transnational political actors in the context of neoliberal globalization. In this historical setting the modern territorial sovereign state is confronted by multiple challenges ranging from climate change to mass migration to transnational political extremism. The existing global order seems currently overwhelmed by these challenges, resulting in widespread stress and chaos that is transforming global security in ways that endanger democratic governance. The future will be determined by whether the peoples of the world make their weight felt in support of sustainable global justice and overcome the impact of oppressive and exploitative patterns of corporate and state behavior. It is this problematic set of circumstances that Power Shift addresses"--Back cover.

Democratic decentralization in India : experiences, issues and challenges
edited by E. Venkatesu
New York : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2016
"This book explores experiences, issues and challenges which have emerged since constitutional status was granted to the local bodies at grass-roots level in India in the early 1990s. Among other issues, it focuses on: the contrasting political ideas of Mahatma Gandhi and B. R. Ambedkar on Panchayati Raj Institutions; the legal and constitutional provisions which were introduced through the 73rd and 74th Amendment Acts; the devolution process, status and challenges of democracy for local governmental bodies; empowerment of the women and lower castes through reservations in the local bodies; governance in Schedule V and VI tribal areas; conflict resolution and capacity building of local governance. Based on extensive fieldwork across India, this volume will be useful to scholars and researchers of political science, sociology, public administration as well as policymakers and civil society activists."--Front matter.

The Routledge handbook of archaeology and globalization
edited by Tamar Hodos
New York, NY : Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
This unique collection applies globalization concepts to the discipline of archaeology, using a wide range of global case studies from a group of international specialists. The volume spans from as early as 10,000 cal. BP to the modern era, analysing the relationship between material culture, complex connectivities between communities and groups, and cultural change. Each contributor considers globalization ideas explicitly to explore the socio-cultural connectivities of the past. In considering social practices shared between different historic groups, and also the expression of their respective identities, the papers in this volume illustrate the potential of globalization thinking to bridge the local and global in material culture analysis. The Routledge Handbook of Archaeology and Globalization is the first such volume to take a world archaeology approach, on a multi-period basis, in order to bring together the scope of evidence for the significance of material culture in the processes of globalization. This work thus also provides a means to understand how material culture can be used to assess the impact of global engagement in our contemporary world. As such, it will appeal to archaeologists and historians as well as social science researchers interested in deep history and the origins of globalization.

When Google met Wikileaks
Assange, Julian, author
New York : OR Books, 2016
In June 2011, Julian Assange received an unusual visitor: the chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, arrived from America at Ellingham Hall, the country residence in Norfolk, England where Assange was living under house arrest. For several hours the besieged leader of the world's most famous insurgent publishing organization and the billionaire head of the world's largest information empire locked horns. The two men debated the political problems faced by society, and the technological solutions engendered by the global network--from the Arab Spring to Bitcoin. They outlined radically opposing perspectives: for Assange, the liberating power of the Internet is based on its freedom and statelessness. For Schmidt, emancipation is at one with US foreign policy objectives and is driven by connecting non-Western countries to American companies and markets. These differences embodied a tug-of-war over the Internet's future that has only gathered force subsequently. When Google Met WikiLeaks presents the story of Assange and Schmidt's encounter. Both fascinating and alarming, it contains an edited transcript of their conversation and extensive, new material, written by Assange specifically for this book, providing the best available summary of his vision for the future of the Internet.

Political marketing and the 2015 UK general election
editors, Darren G. Lilleker, Mark Pack
London : Palgrave Macmillan, 2016
Election strategies, campaign themes and target voters / Andrew Mullen -- Manifestos as an extended branding campaign / Andrew White -- Party branding : a case study of online political posters / Vincent Campbell -- Political party advertising and marketing strategies in the 2015 UK election / Janine Dermody -- Strategic media management / Darren G. Lilleker -- Digital political marketing / Anthony Ridge-Newman -- The battle for Brighton : the view from cyberspace / Ivor Gaber -- Lessons for political marketing from 2015 / Darren G. Lilleker.

This book brings together leading scholars to analyze political marketing in the context of the UK 2015 General Election. Election campaigns represent a time of intense marketing, including: the communication of party, party leader and candidate brands; the design and dissemination of key messages and policy proposals; identification of target voters; setting out strategies for the campaign; and translating strategies into specific communication tactics. Each chapter of this book has been specifically commissioned to focus on one of these aspects of the campaign (targeted campaigning, branding, core messages, advertising, media management, online campaigning and the campaign in the marginal seats). The collection offers insights into the most interesting and innovative aspects of the 2015 election campaign, determining how levels parties with differing resource approach elections and with what impacts, as well as what we can learn more broadly about marketing at general elections. The chapters are developed to make the topic accessible to non-scholars and to have real-world relevance.

Paternalism beyond borders
edited by Michael N. Barnett
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2017
Nearly all of those who want to make the world a better place are engaged in paternalism. This book asks how power is intertwined with practices of global compassion. It argues that the concept of paternalism illuminates how care and control are involved in the everyday practices of humanitarianism, human rights, development and other projects designed to improve the lives of others. The authors explore whether and how the paternalism of the nineteenth century differs from the paternalism of today, and offer a provocative look at the power in global ethics, raising the question of whether, when, and how paternalism can be justified.
