In defense of pluralism : policy disagreement and its media coverage
Montpetit, Éric, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
1. Introduction: shouts, shoes, and insults -- 2. Disagreement and tone in the media -- 3. Frames, metaphors and disagreement in the media -- 4. Measuring disagreement among policy actors -- 5. Do contentious actors stall policy? -- 6. Who disagrees with whom and why? -- 7. Appreciating the pluralist politics of policy-making.

"The work of early pluralist thinkers, from Arthur Bentley to Robert Dahl, inspired much optimism about democracy. They argued that democracy was functioning well, despite disagreements arising among the diversity of interests represented in policy-making processes. Yet it is unlikely that anyone paying attention to news coverage today would share such optimism. The media portray current policy-making processes as intractably polarized, devoid of any opportunity to move forward and adopt essential policy changes. This book aims to revive our long-lost sense of optimism about policy-making and democracy. Through original research into biotechnology policy-making in North America and Europe, Éric Montpetit shows that the depiction of policy-making offered by early pluralist thinkers is not so far off the present reality. Today's policy decision-making process - complete with disagreement among the participants - is consistent with what might be expected in a pluralist society, in sharp contrast with the negative image projected by the media"--

To the Secretary : leaked embassy cables and America's foreign policy disconnect
Thompson-Jones, Mary A., author
New York : W.W. Norton & Company, [2016]
251,287 leaked cables: Monday, November 29, 2010 -- Anti-Americanism: Let's burn the flag! -- Crises: "Post will continue to monitor the situation" -- Travel: to the ends of the Earth -- Frenemies: the faces behind diplomacy -- Wild animals: noble causes and jungle diplomacy -- Corruption: immunity, impunity, and impudence -- Iraq: diplomacy in a war zone -- Hillary Clinton: the good enough secretary.

"When the world awoke on November 28, 2010, and read the first of the 251,287 State Department cables made public by WikiLeaks, Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini warned, 'It will be the September 11th of world diplomacy.' The WikiLeaks scandal certainly stirred tempers around the world, but it was not the implosion that many leaders expected: rather, it shed a new spotlight on the work of the U.S. foreign service. In To the Secretary, Mary Thompson-Jones explores the most fascinating and overlooked of these cables to offer an unparalleled window into the day-to-day work of U.S. diplomats, demystifying the lives of those who implement America's foreign policy across the globe. From the story of Bulgaria's Aleksi "the Tractor" Petrov to disappearing ballot ink in Ukraine, a Honduran coup d'état, or disaster relief for a devastated Haiti, To the Secretary depicts the work of ambassadors and foreign service officers through their firsthand narratives dealing with crises, corruption, and testy world leaders. Negotiating distinctly un-American customs and corridors of power, these shrewd brokers in embassies from Argentina to Zimbabwe worked tirelessly to promote American diplomacy in a world frequently hostile to the United States. To the Secretary also reveals the disconnect that diplomats face at home, guided by conflicting approaches from multiple Washington stakeholders intent on their own agenda, often unaware of realities on the ground. In an honest assessment of America's foreign policy challenges, Thompson-Jones describes the deepening gulf between decision makers in Washington and their diplomats in the field. From misinterpreted analyses of anti-Americanism to Washington's unwillingness to send resources to support diplomatic activities that could make a difference, To the Secretary shows what policymakers can learn from diplomats abroad-and how this can strengthen America's place in an unstable world"--dust jacket.

Political animals : how our Stone Age brain gets in the way of smart politics
Shenkman, Richard, author
New York : Basic Books, a member of the Perseus Books Group, [2016]
INTRODUCTION: the mismatch: why we can't trust our instincts -- PART I: Curiosity -- 1. The Michael Jordan lesson: why people who don't vote and don't follow the news don't think they need to -- 2. We're political animals: so why aren't we better at politics? -- 3. Your 150 closest friends: how many people do you know? -- PART II: Reading people -- 4. Why we are surprised when our leaders disappoint us: the mistake even smart voters make -- 5. 167 milliseconds: the amazing speed at which we draw conclusions about people -- PART III: Truth -- 6. Lying to ourselves: the high cost of self-deception and why we can't stop ourselves -- 7. Do we really want the truth? Why we often seem less interested in the truth than we profess -- 8. Everything happens for a reason: it's just not kids who prefer fairy tales -- 9. It's like it was still 1974: why people make arguments so transparently feeble they leave others dumbstruck -- PART IV: Empathy -- 10. When it happens to you: the limits to empathy -- 11. The accountant's error: the danger of relying on our gut -- CONCLUSION: A way forward: solutions are at our fingertips if only we grasp them -- CODA: The widow's advantage: and what we can learn from her.

This book "challenges us to go beyond the headlines, which often focus on what politicians do (or say they'll do), and to concentrate instead on what's really important: what shapes our response. Shenkman argues that, contrary to what we tell ourselves, it's our instincts rather than arguments appealing to reason that usually prevail. Pop culture tells us we can trust our instincts, but science is proving that when it comes to politics our Stone-Age brain often malfunctions, misfires, and leads us astray"--Dust jacket flap.

Fields of authority : special purpose governance in Ontario, 1815-2015
Lucas, Jack, 1987-, author
Toronto ; University of Toronto Press, 2016
"Everywhere we turn in Canadian local politics--from policing to transit, education to public health, planning to utilities--we encounter a peculiar institutional animal: the special purpose body. These "ABCs" of local government--library boards, school boards, transit authorities, and many others--provide vital public services, spend large sums of public money, and raise important questions about local democratic accountability. In Fields of Authority, Jack Lucas provides the first systematic exploration of local special purpose bodies in Ontario. Drawing on extensive research in local and provincial archives, Lucas uses a "policy fields" approach to explain how these local bodies in Ontario have developed from the nineteenth century to the present. A lively and accessible study, Fields of Authority, will appeal to readers interested in Canadian political history, urban politics, and urban public policy."--

War no more : three centuries of American antiwar and peace writing
Lawrence Rosenwald, editor
New York, N.Y. : The Library Of America, [2016]
"Americans have been at war for most of our history as a people. Wars of conquest gave way to wars of empire, the Civil War to the World Wars, and the Cold War to the War on Terror. Our national anthem celebrates heroism under fire, and martial imagery permeates our politics and our pastimes. But at every turn in this history, Americans have questioned and resisted both particular wars and justifications for war in general. Taking up the pen instead of the sword, they have produced a body of literature of great passion and power, a homegrown American tradition that refuses the proposition that war is the inevitable price of liberty or prosperity - that dares to envision a world where people learn war no more. Gathering essays, letters, speeches, memoirs, songs, poems, cartoons, leaflets, stories, and other works by nearly 150 writers from the colonial era to the present, War No More brings this extraordinary writing together for the first time in a single volume"--

British human rights organizations and Soviet dissent, 1965-1985
Hurst, Mark, 1987- author
London ; Bloomsbury Academic, 2016
Machine generated contents note: -- Introduction -- 1. Amnesty and the Soviet Union -- 2. The Research Department -- 3. The Chronicle of Current Events -- 4. The Reception of Psychiatric abuse -- 5. The Organised Response -- 6. SCPAP and the Royal College of Psychiatrists -- 7. The Women's Campaign for Soviet Jewry -- 8. Keston College -- 9. A Network of Activism -- Conclusions -- Bibliography -- List of Interviews -- Index.

"In the latter half of the 20th century, a number of dissidents engaged in a series of campaigns against the Soviet authorities and as a result were subjected to an array of cruel and violent punishments. A collection of like-minded activists in Britain campaigned on their behalf, and formed a variety of organizations to publicise their plight. British Human Rights Organizations and Soviet Dissent, 1965-1985 examines the efforts of these activists, exploring how influential their activism was in shaping the wider public awareness of Soviet human rights violations in the context of the Cold War. Mark Hurst explores the British response to Soviet human rights violation, drawing on extensive archival work and interviews with key individuals from the period. This book examines the network of human rights activists in Britain, and demonstrates that in order to be fully understood, the Soviet dissident movement needs to be considered in an international context"--

Playing to the edge : American intelligence in the age of terror
Hayden, Michael V. 1945-
New York : Penguin Press, 2016
"An unprecedented high-level master narrative of America's intelligence wars, from the only person ever to helm both the CIA and the NSA, at a time of heinous new threats and momentous change For General Michael Hayden, playing to the edge means playing so close to the line that you get chalk dust on your cleats. Otherwise, by playing back, you may protect yourself, but you will be less successful in protecting America. "Play to the edge" was Hayden's guiding principle when he ran the National Security Agency, and it remained so when he ran the CIA. In his view, many shortsighted and uninformed people are quick to criticize, and this book will give them much to chew on but little easy comfort. It is an unapologetic insider's look told from the perspective of the people who faced awesome responsibilities head on, in the moment. How did American intelligence respond to terrorism, a major war, and the most sweeping technological revolution in the last five hundred years? What was the NSA before 9/11 and how did it change in its aftermath? Why did the NSA begin the controversial terrorist surveillance program that included the acquisition of domestic phone records? What else was set in motion during this period that formed the backdrop for the infamous Snowden revelations in 2013? "--

Conclusions: the postfunctionalists were (almost) right / Edgar Grande and Hanspeter Kriesi -- Methodological appendix: measuring politicisation, benchmarks and data / Swen Hutter.

"Politicising Europe presents the most comprehensive contribution to empirical research on politicisation to date. The study is innovative in both conceptual and empirical terms. Conceptually, the contributors develop and apply a new index and typology of politicisation. Empirically, the volume presents a huge amount of original data, tracing politicisation in a comparative perspective over more than forty years. Focusing on six European countries (Austria, France, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK) from the 1970s to the current euro crisis, the book examines conflicts over Europe in election campaigns, street protests, and public debates on every major step in the integration process. It shows that European integration has indeed become politicized. However, the patterns and developments differ markedly across countries and arenas, and many of the key hypotheses on the driving forces of change need to be revisited in view of new findings"--

Built around three critical themes in international relations-peace and security, human rights and humanitarian affairs, and sustainable human development-the eighth edition of The United Nations and Changing World Politics guides students through the seven turbulent decades of UN politics. This new edition is fully revised to incorporate recent developments on the international stage, including new peace operations in Mali and the Central African Republic; ongoing UN efforts to manage the crises in Libya, Syria, and Iraq; the Iran Nuclear Deal; and the new Sustainable Development Goals. The authors discuss how international law frames the controversies at the UN and guides how the UN responds to violence and insecurity, gross violations of human rights, poverty, underdevelopment, and environmental degradation. Students of all levels will learn that the UN is a complex organization, comprised of three interactive entities that cooperate and also compete with each other to define and advance the UN's principles and purposes"--
