The master of disguise : my secret life in the CIA
Mendez, Antonio J., author
[Old Saybrook, Conn.] : Tantor Media, [2014]
From the author of Argo comes an unforgettable behind-the-scenes story of espionage in action. In the first ever memoir by a top-level operative to be authorized by the CIA, Antonio J. Mendez reveals the cunning tricks and insights that helped save hundreds from deadly situations.Adept at creating new identities for anyone, anywhere, Mendez was involved in operations all over the world, from "Wild West" adventures in East Asia to Cold War intrigue in Moscow. In 1980, he orchestrated the escape of six Americans from a hostage situation in revolutionary Tehran, Iran. This extraordinary operation inspired the movie Argo, directed by and starring Ben Affleck. The Master of Disguise gives us a privileged look at what really happens at the highest levels of international espionage: in the field, undercover, and behind closed doors.

The corporate commonwealth : pluralism and political fictions in England, 1516-1651
Turner, Henry S., author
Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, 2016
Corporation as common constitution -- The political economy of Sir Thomas Smith -- Richard Hooker's corporate Christians -- The principal navigations, voyages, traffiques, and discoveries of the English corporation -- Dekker and Company -- Shakespeare's thing of nothing -- Francis Bacon's political ecology -- Leviathan, Incorporated.

The Corporate Commonwealth traces the evolution of corporations during the English Renaissance and explores the many types of corporations that once flourished. Along the way, the book offers important insights into our own definitions of fiction, politics, and value. Henry S. Turner uses the resources of economic and political history, literary analysis, and political philosophy to demonstrate how a number of English institutions with corporate associations - including universities, guilds, towns and cities, and religious groups - were gradually narrowed to the commercial, for-profit corporation we know today, and how the joint-stock corporation, in turn, became both a template for the modern state and a political force that the state could no longer contain. Through innovative readings of works by Thomas More, William Shakespeare, Francis Bacon, and Thomas Hobbes, among others, Turner tracks the corporation from the courts to the stage, from commonwealth to colony, and from the object of utopian fiction to the subject of tragic violence. A provocative look at the corporation's peculiar character as both an institution and a person, The Corporate Commonwealth uses the past to suggest ways in which today's corporations might be refashioned into a source of progressive and collective public action. -- from dust jacket.

Smarter power : the key to a strategic transatlantic partnership
edited by Aude Jehan and András Simonyi
Washington, DC : Center for Transatlantic Relations, Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University, 2015
"Over the past decade the limits of traditional power have been exposed by expensive and unpopular wars, recession, ballooning debt, revolutions of hope turning into despair, as well as the rise of China and other regional powers, including a resurgent and aggressive Russia. Contemporary challenges require a more sophisticated blend of hard and soft power tools, adapted to specific circumstances. This volume analyzes the power tool box in its complexity. Authors make the case for a 'spectral power' approach that supersedes artificial dichotomies between Hard and Soft Power. They also address practical and institutional challenges that stand in the way of a true Smarter Power strategy."--Page 4 of cover.

The EU in UN politics : actors, processes and performances
Spyros Blavoukos, Dimitrios Bourantonis, editors
London, United Kingdom : Palgrave Macmillan, [2017]
The book assesses the EU performance in the broader UN setting after the Lisbon Treaty. Distinguished scholars with expertise in EU-UN relations use a comprehensive analytical framework of performance to examine various aspects of the complex EU engagement in UN politics. Performance goes beyond the achievement of agreed-upon objectives and engulfs the underlying, intra-organizational, agreement-reaching processes. The contributors examine the output of the intra-EU policy-making process and its impact within the UN setting. They cover thematic areas of special importance for the EU such as environment, human rights, disarmament and peacekeeping operations as well as special UN bodies and forums where the EU is particularly active, such as the UN General Assembly and its main Committees, the International Labour Organisation, UNESCO and the Non-Proliferation Review Conferences.--

Fascism : a warning
Albright, Madeleine Korbel, author
New York, NY : Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, [2018]
A doctrine of anger and fear -- The greatest show on earth -- "We want to be barbarians" -- "Close your hearts to pity" -- Victory of the Caesars -- The fall -- Dictatorship of democracy -- "There are a lot of bodies up there" -- A difficult art -- President for life -- Erdoğan the magnificent -- Man from the KGB -- "We are who we were" -- "The leader will always be with us" -- President of the United States -- Bad dreams -- The right questions.

A Fascist, observes Madeleine Albright, 'is someone who claims to speak for a whole nation or group, is utterly unconcerned with the rights of others, and is willing to use violence and whatever other means are necessary to achieve the goals he or she might have.' The twentieth century was defined by the clash between democracy and Fascism, a struggle that created uncertainty about the survival of human freedom and left millions of innocent people dead. Given the horrors of that experience, one might expect the world to reject the spiritual successors to Hitler and Mussolini should they arise in our era. Albright draws on her experiences as a child in war-torn Europe and her distinguished career as a diplomat to question that very assumption. Fascism, Albright shows, not only endured through the course of the twentieth century, but now presents a more virulent threat to peace and justice than at any time since the end of World War II. The momentum toward democracy that swept the world when the Berlin Wall fell has gone into reverse. The United States, which has historically championed the free world, is led by a president who exacerbates popular divisions and heaps scorn on democratic institutions. In many countries, economic, technological, and cultural factors are weakening the political center and empowering the extremes of right and left. Contemporary leaders such as Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un are employing many of the same tactics used by Fascists in the 1920s and 30s. Written with wisdom by someone who has not only studied history but helped to shape it, this call to arms teaches us the lessons we must understand and the questions we must answer if we are to save ourselves from repeating the tragic errors of the past.

Is non-Western democracy possible? : a russian perspective
editor, Alexei D. Voskressenski, MGIMO University, Russia
New Jersey : World Scientific, [2017]
The Eastern and Western political worlds and classifications of world political systems -- Political cultures and socio-cultural particulars of economic regimes -- Political systems and political cultures of the states of Africa -- Features of the political system and political culture of the state of Israel -- Comparative analysis of the development of political systems of turkey, Egypt, Iraq -- Political systems of Arab states -- State and tribe in the political system of Afganistan -- Political processes and political systems of Central Asian states -- India: political process, political culture and political system -- Political systems and political culture of the South Asian Muslim states -- Political systems and political culture of the Southeast Asian states -- Evolution of political system of Mongolia -- Political systems of the states of the Korean peninsula -- Evolution of political systems and political institutions in China -- Political system of Japan -- General rules and national specifics in non-Western democracy -- Democracy, in general, and in the non-Western context.

"This book, with theoretical and practical analyses of comparative political systems of Eastern countries (Asia and Africa), their political process and political cultures, describes and analyses the influence of political culture on political process in the Eastern world. It gives readers an opportunity to make a comparative appraisal of maturity of civil society in these countries as well as their specifics in political interactions and internal political competition seen through the eyes of a group of distinguished Russian researchers. The book concentrates also on specifics of political-economic and political modernization in the East, and assesses the prospects of an emergence of a Western as well as a non-Western democracy in the framework of Eastern political transformations. It also explains why the one-dimensional spread of democracy -- completely negating or neglecting regional political-cultural specifics -- may lead to war among civilizations instead of the formation of a more just and fair system of democratic governance"--

In search of a better world : a human rights odyssey
Akhavan, Payam
[Toronto, Ontario] : House of Anansi Press, 2017
Chapter One: The Knowledge of Suffering -- Chapter Two: The Pursuit of Global Justice -- Chapter Three: The Will to Intervene -- Chapter Four: The Oneness of Humankind -- Chapter Five: The Spirit of Human Rights -- Notes -- Bibliography -- Acknowledgements -- Index.

In February of 2017, Amnesty International released their Annual Report for 2016 to 2017, concluding that the "us versus them" rhetoric increasingly employed by politicians is endangering human rights the world over. Renowned UN prosecutor and human rights scholar Payam Akhavan has encountered the grim realities of contemporary genocide throughout his life and career. He argues that deceptive utopias, political cynicism, and public apathy have given rise to major human rights abuses: from the religious persecution of Iranian Bahá'ís that shaped his personal life, to the horrors of ethnic cleansing in Yugoslavia, the genocide in Rwanda, and the rise of contemporary phenomena such as the Islamic State. He also reflects on the inspiring resilience of the human spirit and the reality of our inextricable interdependence to liberate us, whether from hateful ideologies that deny the humanity of others or an empty consumerist culture that worships greed and self-indulgence. A timely, essential, and passionate work of memoir and history, In Search of a Better World is a tour de force by an internationally renowned human rights lawyer.

Irregular Afghan migration to Europe : at the margins, looking in
Dimitriadi, Angeliki, author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
Delineating the linkages -- Deciding to be mobile -- In-between spaces : the journey to Europe goes through Turkey -- Greek policies on migration and asylum : an exercise in creative ambiguity -- Afghans in Greece : transit, immobility and return -- Transit no more.

This book examines the issue of irregular transit migration to the EU by presenting the case of the Afghans. Focusing on the Afghans that arrive in and seek to move through Greece, it highlights the unique problems facing this distinctive migratory movement. Recognising that the migratory journey is a continuous interplay of policies and individuals, how each responds and adapts, the book itself moves between countries, policies, stories of migrants and the author's own experiences in the field. Drawing on extensive empirical research conducted in both Greece and Turkey, it explores why such transits occur and the decision-making process of the migrants in transit. Through the example of Afghan migration this book contributes to broader debates concerning transit migration, hospitality and asylum (how it is perceived, access to it). This book presents a timely study of the rise of 'fortress Europe' and the current discourse around refugees and migrants, amidst the largest refugee flow since WWII in Europe. This book's interdisciplinary approach will make it a valuable resource for policy makers as well as Sociology and Politics scholars. --

The paradox of citizenship in American politics : ideals and reality
Momen, Mehnaaz, author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
"This remarkable book does the unusual: it embeds its focus in a larger complex operational space. The migrant, the refugee, the citizen, all emerge from that larger context. The focus is not the usual detailed examination of the subject herself, but that larger world of wars, grabs, contestations, and, importantly, the claimers and resisters."-- Saskia Sassen, Professor of Sociology, Columbia University, USA This thought-provoking book begins by looking at the incredible complexities of "American identity" and ends with the threats to civil liberties with the vast expansion of state power through technology. A must-read for anyone interested in the future of the promise and realities of citizenship in the modern global landscape.-- Kevin R. Johnson, Dean, UC Davis School of Law, USA. Momen focuses on the basic paradox that has long marked national identity: the divide between liberal egalitarian self-conception and persistent practices of exclusion and subordination. The result is a thought-provoking text that is sure to be of interest to scholars and students of the American experience. -- Aziz Rana, Professor of Law, Cornell Law School, USA. This book is an exploration of American citizenship, emphasizing the paradoxes that are contained, normalized, and strengthened by the gaps existing between proposed policies and real-life practices in multiple arenas of a citizen's life. The book considers the evolution of citizenship through the journey of the American nation and its identity, its complexities of racial exclusion, its transformations in response to domestic demands and geopolitical challenges, its changing values captured in immigration policies and practices, and finally its dynamics in terms of the shift in state power vis-à-vis citizens. While it aspires to analyze the meaning of citizenship in America from the multiple perspectives of history, politics, and policy, it pays special attention to the critical junctures where rhetoric and reality clash, allowing for the production of certain paradoxes that define citizenship rights and shape political discourse.

Cycles and social choice : the true and unabridged story of a most protean paradox
Schwartz, Thomas, 1943- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Introduction -- Condorcet's two discoveries -- Incidence of the paradox -- Social rationality -- Arrovian cycle theorems -- Second line of cycle theorems : Condorcet generalizations -- Top cycles in a fixed feasible set -- Strategic consequences of cycles -- Structural consequences of cycles -- Questions about prediction and explanation -- Questions about prescription and evaluation -- Concluding caveats.

"The centuries-old paradox of voting is that majorities sometimes prefer x to y, y to z, and z to x--a cycle. The discovery of the sources and consequences of such cycles, under majority rule and countless other regimes, constitutes much of the mathematical theory of voting and social choice. This book explores the big questions posed by the paradox of voting: positive questions about how to predict outcomes and explain observed stability, and normative questions about how to hold elections, how to take account of preference intensities, the relevance of social welfare to social choice, and challenges to formal "rationality," individual and social. The overall lesson is that cycles are facts, ubiquitous, and consequential in non-obvious ways, not puzzles to be solved, much less maladies or misfortunes to be avoided or regretted"--

Anti-pluralism : the real populist threat to liberal democracy
Galston, William A. 1946- author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2018]
The Great Recession, institutional dysfunction, a growing divide between urban and rural prospects, and failed efforts to effectively address immigration have paved the way for a populist backlash that disrupts the postwar bargain between political elites and citizens. Whether today's populism represents a corrective to unfair and obsolete policies or a threat to liberal democracy itself remains up for debate. Yet this much is clear: these challenges indict the triumphalism that accompanied liberal democratic consolidation after the collapse of the Soviet Union. To respond to today's crisis, good leaders must strive for inclusive economic growth while addressing fraught social and cultural issues, including demographic anxiety, with frank attention. Although reforms may stem the populist tide, liberal democratic life will always leave some citizens unsatisfied. This is a permanent source of vulnerability, but liberal democracy will endure so long as citizens believe it is worth fighting for.

Careers after Congress : do jobseeking legislators shortchange constituents?
Dabros, Matthew S., author
Santa Barbara, California : Praeger, an imprint of ABC-CLIO, LLC, [2017]
American democracy and the revolving door -- Political representation as Mr. Smith leaves Washington -- What have all the legislators done? -- Do jobseekers shortchange constituents through work reductions? -- Do jobseekers shortchange constituents in their policymaking? -- If not opportunism, then what?: correlates of post-congressional careers -- Why legislators remain (mostly) faithful to constituents.

Citizens, journalists, and watchdog organizations claim that U.S. Congress members serve special interest groups in return for lucrative jobs in industry once they leave office-and that these legislators become lax in their final term of office as they are no longer compelled by elections to provide quality representation to citizens. This book investigates the veracity of these claims. The established consensus among scholars and citizens groups is that democracy suffers when U.S. Congress members prepare to leave office-that legislators are quick to satisfy pressure groups' requests in part because they anticipate being rewarded with financially compelling positions in those organizations once they leave office. But is this actually true? Focusing on 346 of the senators and representatives who left office during the 107th through 111th Congresses (January 2001 to January 2011), this book makes a counterintuitive argument: that job-seeking legislators provide stalwart service to citizens during their final term of office for fear of damaging their reputations and imperiling their post-Congressional career prospects. After an introductory chapter, author Matthew S. Dabros summarizes past research on political opportunism before discussing how nonelectoral constraints imposed by special interests (namely, diminished post-Congressional employment opportunities) actually encourage job-seeking legislators to provide quality representation to citizens even in their final term in office. The book also describes the nature and identifies the determinants of post-Congressional careers. The chapters use numerous contemporary examples and draw parallels to topics familiar to general readers to ensure that the book is highly accessible and interesting to nonspecialists.

Migration, citizenship and identity : selected essays
Castles, Stephen, author
Cheltenham, UK ; Edward Elgar Publishing, [2017]
Stephen Castles provides a deeper understanding of recent 'migration crises' in this fascinating and highly topical work. The book links theory and methodology to real-world migration experiences, with a truly global perspective and in-depth analysis of the links between economics, migration and asylum and refugee issues. Key features surrounding this complex and often controversial field are examined through five thematic sections: the sociological theories and methodologies most appropriate for understanding the migratory process, including the changing nature of international migration in an era of globalization;* analysis of contemporary types of migration and the cruciality of understanding migration as a dynamic social process - inability to do so may lead to policy failure and unintended consequence; the relationship between migration and development; asylum and refugees; the effects of international migration on citizenship and identity, providing a critical perspective on the emergence of transnationalism.

This book addresses the changing electoral and political circumstances in which American political parties found themselves in the 2016 election, and the strategic adaptations this new pressure may require. The respective establishments of both major political parties have found themselves facing serious challenges. Some observers wondered if realignment was in progress, and whether the parties could survive. Both grounded in research and accessible to more than just academics, this book provides important insights into how political parties can move forward from 2016.

Approaching the nuclear tipping point : cooperative security in an era of global change
Goodby, James E., author
Lanham, Maryland : Rowman & Littlefield, [2017]
Introduction -- Learning survival skills in the new world -- Stepping back from the tipping point -- Nationalism, globalism, and technology -- The potential for regional cooperative security negotiations -- Global security cooperation : an agenda for early action -- Choosing the future -- Appendix A: Joint statement : strategic stability cooperation initiative between the United States of America and Russian Federation ; Joint declaration on the new strategic relationship : declaration of President George W. Bush and President Vladimir V Putin signed at Moscow on May 24, 2002 -- Appendix B: Thoughts about the feasibility of eliminating nuclear weapons. Adapted from A world without nuclear weapons : end-state issues by Sidney Drell and James Goodby -- Appendix C: Draft agreement on the Nuclear Test Moratorium by Thomas Graham.

Globalization and technology have created new challenges to national governments. As a result, they now must share power with other entities, such as regional and global organizations or large private economic units. In addition, citizens in most parts of the world have been empowered by the ability to acquire and disseminate information instantly. However this has not led to the type of international cooperation essential to deal with existential threats. Whether governments can find ways to cooperate in the face of looming threats to the survival of human society and our environment has become one of the defining issues of our age. A struggle between renewed nationalism and the rise of a truly global society is underway, but neither global nor regional institutions have acquired the skills and authority needed to meet existential threats, such as nuclear proliferation. Arms control efforts may have reduced the excesses of the Cold War, but concepts and methodologies for dealing with the nuclear menace have not kept up with global change. In addition, governments have shown surprisingly little interest in finding new ways to manage or eliminate global and regional competition in acquiring more or better nuclear weapons systems. This book explains why nuclear weapons still present existential dangers to humanity and why engagement by the United States with all states possessing nuclear weapons remains necessary to forestall a global catastrophe. The terms of engagement, however, will have to be different than during the Cold War. Technology is developing rapidly, greatly empowering individuals, groups, and nations. This can and should be a positive development, improving health, welfare, and quality of life for all, but it can also be used for enormous destruction. This book reaches beyond the military issues of arms control to analyze the impact on international security of changes in the international system and defines a unique cooperative security agenda. -- Provided by publisher.

Realist thought and the nation-state : power politics in the age of nationalism
Kostagiannis, Konstantinos, author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
This book recovers the history of realist theorization on nationalism and the nation-state. Presented in a sequence of snapshots and illustrated by examples drawn from the foreign policy of great powers, this history is represented by four key realist thinkers. It uses the centrality of power in realism as a starting point to claim, contrary to conventional wisdom about realism, that for realists the state is better understood not as a political unit outside history but rather as a manifestation of power unfixed in time. It also claims that the process of gradual impoverishment of the concept of power from classical to structural realism had profound implications for realism, as what the latter gained in parsimony it lost in analytical purchase. As a result, elaborate understandings of nationalism and its relation to the state are replaced by one-dimensional approaches. In order to offer meaningful engagement with foreign policy, neorealists often have to resort to the recovery of some of the complexity of classical realist accounts.--

A civil-military response to hybrid threats
Eugenio Cusumano, Marian Corbe, editors
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
This edited volume provides scholars and practitioners with an in-depth examination of the role of civil-military cooperation in addressing hybrid threats. As they combine the simultaneous employment of conventional and non-conventional tools and target not only military objectives but governments and societies at large, hybrid threats cannot be countered solely by military means, but require an equally inclusive response encompassing a wide range of military and civilian actors. This book, which combines the perspectives of academics, military officers, and officials from international and non-governmental organisations, resorts to different case studies to illustrate the importance of civil-military cooperation in enhancing the resilience of NATO members and partners against a wide range of societal destabilization strategies, thereby contributing to the formulation of a civil-military response to hybrid threats.--

Russo -- Rearranging desire : on whiteness and heteronormativity / Andrew Baldwin -- Afterword : life adrift in a postcolonial world / Gaia Giuliani.

Life Adrift" critically engages with two of the most defining issues of our contemporary global political economy: migration and climate change. In their own right, both are discrete areas of politics, theory, practice, and resistance. But as climate and migration are increasingly imagined together as a singular relation, they are giving rise to new horizons of meaning in politics, philosophy, media, art and literature. Life Adrift is a collection of essays from across the interpretive social sciences and humanities which treats climate change and migration as a relation that demands theoretical and historical explanation, rather than a problem requiring technical and expert solutions. The result is a unique collection, offering readers a means for reconceptualising migration and environmental changes as a site of politics and of political possibility. Along the way it addresses a range of topics current in cultural and political theory, including democracy, place, neoliberalism, humanism, materiality, borders, affect, race and sexuality. If climate change stands to redistribute humans and material across the globe, then Life Adrift offers a set of critical resources for analysing this coming phenomenon and reimaging what it might mean to be political in a fully immanent world of bodies in flux.

International security in the Asia-Pacific : transcending ASEAN towards transitional polycentrism
edited by Alan Chong
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
This volume argues that international security in the Asia-Pacific lends itself to contradictory analyses of centrifugal and centripetal trends. Transitional polycentrism is intrinsically awkward as a description of the security of states and their populations; it implies the loosening of state control and the emergence of newly asserted authority by mixed constellations of intergovernmental organizations and non-state actors. It implies a competition of agendas: threats to the integrity of borders and human security threats such as natural disasters, airliner crashes, and displacement by man-made pollution and food scarcity. Conversely, polycentrism could also imply a return to a more neo-realist oriented international order where great powers ignore ASEAN and steer regional order according to their perceived interests and relative military superiority. This book embraces these contradictory trends as a foundation of analysis and accepts that disorder can also be re-described from the perspective of studied detachment as polycentric order.

New Haven : Yale University Press, [2017]
Prologue -- Preference reversals : a theory of conversational logic -- An ecological theory of ideological consistency -- Myrdal's insight : the politics of race -- The fear of mass politics -- Epilogue -- Appendix : summary of replication.

"Contemporary political science has concentrated on cataloguing voters' failings--their lack of knowledge, tolerance, or consistency in political thinking. While it would be a mistake to think this portrait of citizens is simply wrong, it is a deeper mistake to accept it as a satisfactory likeness. In this book, Paul Sniderman demonstrates that a concentration on the pathologies of citizens' political thinking has obscured the intense clash of opposing belief systems in the electorate. He shows how a concentration on racism has distorted understanding of the politics of race by keeping out of sight those who think well of black Americans. And he exposes the fallacy of spotlighting the dangers of mass politics while ignoring those of elite politics."--Provided by the publisher.

A practical guide to analytics for governments : using big data for good
edited by Marie Lowman
Hoboken, New Jersey : John Wiley & Sons, Inc., [2017]
A Practical Guide to Analytics for Governments provides demonstrations of real-world analytics applications for legislators, policy-makers, and support staff at the federal, state, and local levels. Big data and analytics are transforming industries across the board, and government can reap many of those same benefits by applying analytics to processes and programs already in place. From healthcare delivery and child well-being, to crime and program fraud, analytics can-in fact, already does-transform the way government works. This book shows you how analytics can be implemented in your own milieu: What is the downstream impact of new legislation? How can we make programs more efficient? Is it possible to predict policy outcomes without analytics? How do I get started building analytics into my government organization? The answers are all here, with accessible explanations and useful advice from an expert in the field.--

Turning parliament inside out : practical ideas for reforming Canada's democracy

"A collaborative roadmap for Canadian parliamentary reform by MPs from all of Canada's major political parties. For years, the prospect of parliamentary reform has been a hot-button issue in Canada. More and more Canadians find themselves frustrated with how Parliament works (or doesn't) and end up increasingly checked out from politics as a whole, feeling like their voices don't matter to those in power. When he introduced the "Reform Act" bill in 2013, Conservative MP Michael Chong brought the issue of parliamentary reform to the forefront, proposing changes that would empower MPs and hold party leadership accountable to their caucus--and therefore, to all Canadians. Although the changes required for such reforms are modest, the effects they would have on the Canadian democratic process would be revolutionary. In Turning Parliament Inside Out, Chong joins Kennedy Stewart (NDP) and Scott Simms (Liberal) in organizing a collaboration between MPs from all of Canada's major political parties, representing ridings from across the country. They join together in an across-the-aisle effort to make these changes a reality, explaining why reform is so urgently needed and proposing practical, achievable suggestions for making it happen. With the Trudeau government promising sweeping reforms, the opportunity is now ripe for making long-needed changes and restoring Canadians' faith in the political process, reassuring voters that their voices are heard. Turning Parliament Inside Out provides a roadmap for how to get there."--

"A fascinating history of the political theory of hegemony. Few terms are so widely used in the literature of international relations and political science, with so little agreement about their exact meaning, as hegemony. In the first full historical study of its fortunes as a concept, Perry Anderson traces its emergence in Ancient Greece, its rediscovery during the upheavals of 1848-9 in Germany, and then its chequered career in revolutionary Russia, fascist Italy, Cold War America, Thatcherized Britain, post-colonial India, feudal Japan, Maoist China, through to the world of Merkel and May, Bush and Obama. The result is a surprising and fascinating expedition into global intellectual history, ending with a strong political statement about the present"--

Spy schools : how the CIA, FBI, and foreign intelligence secretly exploit America's universities
Golden, Daniel, 1957- author
New York, New York : Henry Holt and Company, 2017
Introduction : The FBI goes to college -- Part 1. Foreign espionage at American universities. Cloak of invisibility -- The Chinese are coming -- Spy without a country -- Foreign exchange -- Shanghaied -- Part 2. Covert U.S. operations in higher education. An imperfect spy -- The CIA's favorite university president -- Bumps and cutouts -- Hidden in the ivy -- "I am keeping you out of jail" -- No-spy zone.

"Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Daniel Golden exposes how academia has become a major target of foreign and domestic espionage--and why that is troubling news for our nation's security and democratic values. Grounded in extensive research and reporting, Spy Schools reveals that globalization--the influx of foreign students and professors and the outflow of Americans for study, teaching, and conferences abroad--has transformed U.S. higher education into a front line for international spying. In labs, classrooms, and auditoriums, intelligence services from countries like China, Russia, and Cuba seek insights into U.S. policy, recruits for clandestine operations, and access to sensitive military and civilian research. The FBI and CIA reciprocate, tapping international students and faculty as informants. Universities ignore or even condone this interference, despite the tension between their professed global values and the nationalistic culture of espionage. Taking advantage of patriotic fervor and fear in the wake of 9/11, the CIA and other security agencies have infiltrated almost every aspect of academic culture and enlist professors, graduate students, and even undergraduates to moonlight as spies. Golden uncovers shocking campus activity--from the CIA placing agents undercover in Harvard Kennedy School classes and staging academic conferences to persuade Iranian nuclear scientists to defect, to a Chinese graduate student at Duke University stealing research for an invisibility cloak, and a tiny liberal arts college in Marietta, Ohio, exchanging faculty with China's most notorious spy school--to show how relentlessly and ruthlessly both U.S. and foreign intelligence services are penetrating the ivory tower. Golden, the acclaimed author of The Price of Admission, unmasks this secret culture of espionage and its consequences at home and abroad."--Jacket.

Practices of diplomacy in the early modern world c.1410-1800
edited by Tracey Sowerby and Jan Hennings
London ; Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
Practices of Diplomacy in the Early Modern World offers a new contribution to the ongoing reassessment of early modern international relations and diplomatic history. Divided into three parts, it provides an examination of diplomatic culture from the Renaissance into the eighteenth century and presents the development of diplomatic practices as more complex, multifarious and globally interconnected than the traditional state-focussed, national paradigm allows. The volume addresses three central and intertwined themes within early modern diplomacy: who and what could claim diplomatic agency and in what circumstances; the social and cultural contexts in which diplomacy was practised; and the role of material culture in diplomatic exchange. Together the chapters provide a broad geographical and chronological presentation of the development of diplomatic practices and, through a strong focus on the processes and significance of cultural exchanges between polities, demonstrate how it was possible for diplomats to negotiate the cultural codes of the courts to which they were sent. This exciting collection brings together new and established scholars of diplomacy from different academic traditions. It will be essential reading for all students of diplomatic history. --

The return of Marco Polo's world : war, strategy, and American interests in the twenty-first century
Kaplan, Robert D., 1952- author
New York : Random House, [2018]
"A bracing assessment of U.S. foreign policy and world disorder over the past two decades, anchored by a major new Pentagon-commissioned essay about changing power dynamics among China, Eurasia, and America--from the renowned geopolitical analyst and bestselling author of The Revenge of Geography and The Coming Anarchy. In the late thirteenth century, Marco Polo began a decades-long trek from Venice to China. The strength of that Silk Road--the trade route between Europe and Asia--was a foundation of Kublai Khan's sprawling empire. Now, in the early twenty-first century, the Chinese regime has proposed a land-and-maritime Silk Road that duplicates exactly the route Marco Polo traveled. In the major lead essay, recently released by the Pentagon's Office of Net Assessment, Robert D. Kaplan lays out a blueprint of the world's changing power politics that recalls the late thirteenth century. As Europe fractures from changes in culture and migration, Eurasia coheres into a single conflict system. China is constructing a land bridge to Europe. Iran and India are trying to link the oil fields of Central Asia to the Indian Ocean. America's ability to influence the power balance in Eurasia is declining. This is Kaplan's first collection of essays since his classic The Coming Anarchy was published in 2000. Drawing on decades of firsthand experience as a foreign correspondent and military embed for The Atlantic, as well as encounters with preeminent realist thinkers, Kaplan outlines the timeless principles that should shape America's role in a turbulent world: a respect for the limits of Western-style democracy; a delineation between American interests and American values; an awareness of the psychological toll of warfare; a projection of power via a strong navy; and more. From Kaplan's immediate thoughts on President Trump ("On Foreign Policy, Donald Trump Is No Realist," 2016) to a frank examination of what will happen in the event of war with North Korea ("When North Korea Falls," 2006), The Return of Marco Polo's World is a vigorous and honest reckoning with the difficult choices the United States will face in the years ahead."--

The ghosts of Langley : into the CIA's heart of darkness

Prologue: Ghosts in the machine -- The house that Allen built -- Zealots and schemers -- Stars and meteors -- Crisis -- The consiglieri -- The sheriffs -- The headless horseman -- A failed exorcist -- Jacob Marley's ghosts -- The Flying Dutchman.

"The Ghosts of Langley is a provocative and panoramic new history of the Central Intelligence Agency that relates the agency's current predicament to its founding and earlier years, telling the story of the agency through the eyes of key figures in CIA history, including some of its most troubling covert actions around the world. It reveals how the agency, over seven decades, has resisted government accountability, going rogue in a series of highly questionable ventures that reach their apotheosis with the secret overseas prisons and torture programs of the war on terror." -- from publisher's web site.

Constitutional politics and the territorial question in Canada and the United Kingdom : federalism and devolution compared
Michael Keating, Guy Laforest, editors
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
This book compares the constitutional politics in Canada and the United Kingdom - two complex, multilevel, plurinational states. While the former is federal and the latter a devolved state, the logic of both systems is similar: to combine unity with diversity. Both are facing similar challenges in a world marked by spatial rescaling, international interdependence and economic and social change. The contributors chart these challenges and the responses of the two countries, covering the meanings of federalism and devolution; the role of the courts; fiscal equalization; welfare; party politics; reform by popular referendum and citizen assemblies; and intergovernmental relations. The book will be of interest to students of federalism and multilevel government, state transformation territorial politics on both sides of the Atlantic.--

Reclaiming representation : contemporary advances in the theory of political representation
edited by Mónica Brito Vieira
New York, NY : Routledge, 2017
Performative imaginaries : Pitkin versus Hobbes on political representation / Mónica Brito Vieira -- What is representation? : on being and becoming a representative / Andrew Rehfeld -- Performative representation / Michael Saward -- The two cultures of democratic theory : responsiveness, democratic quality, and the empirical-normative divide / Andrew Sabl -- Toward a mobilization conception of democratic representation / Lisa Disch -- Representative democracy is classless / Sofia Nässtrom -- The democratic tenor of representation / Nadia Urbinati -- Representing affected interests / Laura Montanaro.

Representation is integral to the functioning and legitimacy of modern government. Yet political theorists have often been reluctant to engage directly with questions of representation, and empirical political scientists have closed down such questions by making representation synonymous with congruence. Conceptually unproblematic and normatively inert for some, representation has been deemed impossible to pin down analytically and to defend normatively by others. But this is changing. Political theorists are now turning to political representation as a subject worthy of theoretical investigation in its own right. In their effort to rework the theory of political representation, they are also hoping to impact how representation is assessed and studied empirically. This volume gathers together chapters by key contributors to what amounts to a "representative turn" in political theory. Their approaches and emphases are diverse, but taken together they represent a compelling and original attempt at re-conceptualizing political representation and critically assessing the main theoretical and political implications following from this, namely for how we conceive and assess representative democracy. Each contributor is invited to look back and ahead on the transformations to democratic self-government introduced by the theory and practice of political representation. Representation and democracy: outright conflict, uneasy cohabitation, or reciprocal constitutiveness? For those who think democracy would be better without representation, this volume is a must-read: it will question their assumptions, while also exploring some of the reasons for their discomfort. --

Peacebuilding and spatial transformation : peace, space and place
Björkdahl, Annika, author
London ; Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
Introduction : space, place and agency : mapping peace across sites -- Space, place and agency -- Cyprus : contesting the island -- Kosovo : emplacing the state and peace(s) -- Bosnia-Herzegovina : the ethnic peace -- Northern Ireland : the maze of peace -- South Africa : perpetuating spatial apartheid? -- Conclusion : reading the politics of peace and conflict spatially.

This book investigates peacebuilding in post-conflict scenarios by analysing the link between peace, space and place. By focusing on the case studies of Cyprus, Kosovo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Northern Ireland and South Africa, the book provides a spatial reading of agency in peacebuilding contexts. It conceptualises peacebuilding agency in post-conflict landscapes as situated between place (material locality) and space (the imaginary counterpart of place), analysing the ways in which peacebuilding agency can be read as a spatial practice. Investigating a number of post-conflict cases, this book outlines infrastructures of power and agency as they are manifested in spatial practice. It demonstrates how spatial agency can take the form of conflict and exclusion on the one hand, but also of transformation towards peace over time on the other hand. Against this background, the book argues that agency drives place-making and space-making processes. Therefore, transformative processes in post-conflict societies can be understood as materialising through the active use and transformation of space and place. This book will be of interest to students of peacebuilding, peace and conflict studies, human geography and IR in general.

Unexceptional politics : on obstruction, impasse, and the impolitic
Apter, Emily S., 1954- author
London ; Verso, 2018
"One way to grasp the nature of politics is to understand the key terms in which it is discussed. Unexceptional Politics develops a political vocabulary drawn from a wide range of media (political fiction, art, film, and TV), highlighting the scams, imbroglios, information trafficking, brinkmanship, and parliamentary procedures that obstruct and block progressive politics. The book reviews and renews modes of thinking about micropolitics that counter notions of the "state of exception" embedded in theories of the "political" from Thomas Hobbes to Carl Schmitt. Emily Apter develops a critical model of politics behind the scenes, a politics that operates outside the norms of classical political theory. She focuses on micropolitics, defined as small events, happening in series, that often pass unnoticed yet disturb and interfere with the institutional structures of capitalist parliamentary systems, even as they secure their reproduction and longevity. Apter's experimental glossary is arranged under headings that look at the apparently incidental, immaterial, and increasingly virtual practices of politicking: "obstruction," "obstinacy," "psychopolitics," "managed life," "serial politics." Such terms frame an argument for taking stock of the realization that we really do not know what politics is, where it begins and ends, or how its micro-events should be described." --

We the people must act -- Appendix A: Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee: dues and money raised -- Appendix B: The Electoral College.

This authoritative and passionate primer on the three branches of government reveals the changes--political, cultural, constitutional, technological, institutional--that render our government completely dysfunctional, and the urgent need to fix our democracy before it's too late. If you've been watching the news and worrying that our democracy no longer works, this book will help you understand why you're right. There is colossal concentration of power in the Presidency. Congress is crippled by partisanship and dependence on special interest money. The Supreme Court and many lower federal courts are riven by politics. Add politically fractured and fragile media, feckless campaign finance laws, rampant income and education inequality, and multicultural divisions, and it's no wonder our leaders can't agree on anything or muster a solid majority of Americans behind them. With decades as a leader in government, law, and business, Joseph A. Califano, Jr. has the maturity to be party-neutral in his evaluation and the perspective to see the big picture of our democracy. Using anecdotes and examples featuring every modern president and actions of both parties, Califano makes the urgent case that we do not need to agree, but we do need to trust each other and be worthy of that trust, in order to bring back systems of government that protect freedom and promote fairness. The longer we wait to fix these problems, the more dangerous our situation will become. Our Damaged Democracy is the rallying cry we need to get our country back on track.

The age of human rights has been kindest to the rich.

Jane Vialle's post-war crusade / Lorelle Semley -- The right to family: Chinese marriage immigrants, Chinese children, and graduated citizenship in Taiwan / Sara L. Friedman -- Conceptualizing citizenship / Anne R. Epstein and Rachel G. Fuchs.

With gender as its central focus, this book offers a transnational, multi-faceted understanding of citizenship as legislated, imagined, and exercised since the late eighteenth century. Framed around three crosscutting themes - agency, space and borders - leading scholars demonstrate what historians can bring to the study of citizenship and its evolving relationship with the theory and practice of democracy, and how we can make the concept of citizenship operational for studying past societies and cultures. The essays examine the past interactions of women and men with public authorities, their participation in civic life within various kinds of polities and the meanings they attached to their actions. In analyzing the way gender operated both to promote and to inhibit civic consciousness, action, and practice, this book advances our knowledge about the history of citizenship and the evolution of the modern state.

The origins of dominant parties : building authoritarian institutions in post-soviet Russia
Reuter, Ora John, author
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2017
Introduction -- A theory of dominant party formation -- False starts: the failure of pro-Presidential parties under Yeltsin -- The emergence of a dominant party in Russia -- United Russia as the dominant party -- United Russia and Russia's Governors -- Economic elites and dominant party affiliation -- Dominant party emergence around the world -- Conclusion.

"In many autocracies, regime leaders share power with a ruling party, which can help generate popular support and reduce conflict among key elites. Such ruling parties are often called dominant parties. In other regimes, leaders prefer to rule solely through some combination of charisma, patronage, and coercion, rather than sharing power with a dominant party. This book explains why dominant parties emerge in some nondemocratic regimes, but not in others. It offers a novel theory of dominant party emergence that centers on the balance of power between rulers and other elites. Drawing on extensive fieldwork in Russia, original data on Russian political elites, and cross-national statistical analysis, the book's findings shed new light on how modern autocracies work and why they break down. The book also provides new insights about the foundations of Vladimir Putin's regime and challenges several myths about the personalization of power under Putin"--

"This book provides the first detailed comparative analysis of the unusual partnership between the main European neutral states and NATO. Neutrality and alliance membership are fundamentally incompatible, but through the vehicle of NATO's post-Cold War partnerships the European neutral states and NATO have found a way to bridge this gap and cooperate with one another. Based on case studies of Austria, Finland, Ireland, Sweden and Switzerland written by leading experts, this book explores the detail of each country's relationship with NATO, the factors shaping those relationships and whether any of these states are likely to abandon neutrality and join NATO. The book also contributes to broader work on foreign policy by exploring different explanations of the European neutral states' foreign and security policy choices. This book will be of interest to scholars of the European neutral states, NATO and European security, as well as to those interested in understanding the dynamics behind states foreign policy choices"--

Beyond the messy truth : how we came apart, how we come together
Jones, Van, 1968- author
New York : Ballantine Books, [2017]
Introduction -- America Betrayed-By Both Parties -- An Open Letter to Liberals -- An Open Letter to Conservatives -- Whitelash: Myths and Facts -- Prince, Newt, and the Way Forward: Portraits in Strange Bedfellows -- The Beautiful Work: Four Solutions -- Conclusion: Reclaiming Our Founding Dream -- Appendix I: Bridge-Building Resources -- Appendix II: Be Informed, Get Involved.

"A passionate manifesto that exposes hypocrisy on both sides of the political divide and points a way out of the tribalism that is tearing America apart--by the CNN political contributor and host hailed as "a star of the 2016 campaign" (The New York Times) who coined the term"whitelash" Van Jones burst into the American consciousness during the 2016 presidential campaign with an unscripted, truth-telling style and an already established history of bridge-building across party lines. His election night commentary became a viral sensation. A longtime progressive activist with deep roots in the conservative South, Jones has made it his mission to challenge voters and viewers to stand in one another's shoes and disagree constructively. Now, in Beyond the Messy Truth, Jones offers a blueprint for transforming our collective anxiety into meaningful change. Tough on Donald Trump but showing respect and empathy for his supporters, Jones takes aim at the failures of both parties before and after Trump's victory. He urges both sides to abandon the politics of accusation and focus on real solutions. Calling us to a deeper patriotism, he shows us how to get down to the vital business of solving, together, some of our toughest problems. "The entire national conversation today can be reduced to a simple statement--'I'm right, and you're wrong, '" Jones has said. But the truth is messier; both sides have flaws. Both parties have strayed from their highest principles and let down their core constituencies. Rejecting today's political tribalism, Jones issues a stirring call for a new "bipartisanship from below." Recognizing that tough challenges require the best wisdom from both liberals and conservatives, he points us toward practical answers to problems that affect us all regardless of region or ideology: rural and inner-city poverty, unemployment, addiction, unfair incarceration, and the devastating effects of the pollution-based economy on both coal country and our urban centers. In explaining how he arrived at his views, Jones shares behind-the-scenes memories from his decades spent marching and protesting on behalf of working people, inspiring stories of ordinary citizens who became champions of their communities, and little-known examples of cooperation that have risen from the fog of partisan conflict. In his quest for positive solutions, Van Jones encourages us to set fire to our old ways of thinking about politics and come together where the pain is greatest. Advance praise for Beyond the Messy Truth "Part manifesto, part manual for activism, [Beyond the Messy Truth] is enlivened by case histories and personal anecdotes that serve as support for the author's assertions. The author proposes common projects that may bring opposing sides together. [and] offers concrete suggestions to revive democracy, heal culture wars, and prevent a Trump victory in 2020"--Kirkus Reviews "Van Jones is a light in the darkness when we need it most.

Performing political theory : pedagogy in modern political theory
Uhr, John, author
Singapore : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
Introduction : politics and pedagogy -- Reading Dewey -- Reading Shaftesbury -- Reading Machiavelli's The prince -- Reading J. S. Mill's On liberty -- Reading Nietzsche's On the genealogy of morals -- Conclusion : reading Collingwood.

This book examines the performative role of influential thinkers in the history of modern Western political thought. The case studies examine influential political philosophers who saw their writing role 'performatively', as an exercise in pedagogy designed to generate a new type of political following among their readers. Machiavelli, Mill and Nietzsche wrote classic works in political theory (The Prince, On Liberty, Genealogy of Morals) to reform and reshape their readers' ability to think and act politically. Thinkers become performative through what they write in their public performance; and contemporary academic teachers can use this to great pedagogical effect in helping students 'get the point' of political theorising. This book examines how a small sample of classic theoretical performers wrote their remarkable public works. John Uhr draws on neglected or forgotten lessons on performative writing from past masters of literary criticism like Lord Shaftesbury, R G Collingwood and John Dewey, all of whom can help those now teaching the history of modern political thought to enable students to learn the performance of politics acted out by modernising thinkers capable of writing in ways similar to Machiavelli, Mill and Nietzsche.

Political power and tribalism in Kenya
Shilaho, Westen K., author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
Introduction: ethnicity and politics in Kenya -- The Kenyan state and the ethnicity challenge -- Autocracy, big man politics, and international atrophy -- Motion without movement: Kenya's transition without transformation -- The state ruptures -- The International Criminal Court (ICC), impunity, and the elusive justice in Kenya -- Conclusion.

This book discusses Kenya's transition from authoritarianism to more democratic forms of politics and its impact on Kenya's multi-ethnic society. The author examines two significant questions: Why and how is ethnicity salient in Kenya's transition from one-party rule to multiparty politics? What is the relationship between ethnic conflict and political liberalization? The project explains the perennial issues of political disorganization through state violence and ethnicization of politics, and considers the significance of the concept of justice in Kenya.

International relations in Poland : 25 years after the transition to democracy
Czaputowicz, Jacek, author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2017]
Introduction -- International relations as a scholarly discipline -- Polish international relations in historical perspective -- International relations under communism -- International relations after 1989 -- Empirical analysis of texts -- Conclusion.

"This book is the most comprehensive and critical analysis to date of how the International Relations discipline was cultivated in Poland during the last 100 years. It adds valuable knowledge to the big picture of discipline and diversity in Europe and provides an excellent platform for disciplinary reform." Knud Erik Jørgensen, Professor of International Relations, University of Aarhus, Denmark "This book is important for both current and future generations of students of IR. The authors portray the development of the discipline in Poland, while drawing comparisons with other countries. The in-depth historical and empirical analysis contained here offers a significant contribution to the sociology of IR." Jan Zielonka, Professor of European Politics and Ralf Dahrendorf Fellow, St Antonys College, University of Oxford, UK This book critically examines the study of International Relations in Poland, looking at the pre-academic origins of the discipline, its development after WWII, under communism, and after the transformation of 1989. Apart from bringing a broad political and intellectual context, it offers a thorough quantitative and qualitative study of hundreds of books and scientific articles. The theoretical and methodological practices of Polish IR scholars are presented in a comparative perspective, looking for common patterns with other European countries. This book is an invaluable resource for scholars with an interest in sociology of IR, disciplinary history or scholarly metrics.

Public opinion on economic globalization : considering immigration, international trade, and foreign direct investment
White, Roger, 1967- author
[Cham, Switzerland] : Palgrave Macmillan, [2017]
This book examines survey data to consider the extent to which public support for immigration, international trade, and foreign direct investment exists in a cohort of 38 heterogeneous countries. With economic globalization shaping daily life, understanding the determinants of public opinion is crucial for policy makers. This timely volume uses survey data from the Pew Research Center's 2006-2014 Global Attitudes Project (GAP) in conjunction with data from several secondary sources. White identifies the factors that underlie the reluctance of some members of the public, and some societies, to view these topics in a more positive light. Specifically, he considers the roles of culture, cultural differences ("cultural distance"), and relative social and economic development as determinants of public opinion and corresponding cross-societal differences of opinion. --

Human rights in China : a social practice in the shadows of authoritarianism
Pils, Eva, author
Cambridge, UK ; Polity Press, 2018
"How can we make sense of human rights in China's authoritarian system? In this insightful book, China law expert Eva Pils offers a nuanced account of this contentious area, examining human rights as a set of social practices involving a variety of actors, including officials of the system and civil society actors. Drawing on a wide range of resources including years of interaction with Chinese human rights defenders, Pils discusses sources of human rights violations, as well as institutional avenues of protection and social practices of human rights defence. Three central areas are given special attention: liberty and integrity of the person and the right not to be tortured; freedom of thought and expression; and inequality and socio-economic rights. Pils argues that the Party-State system is inherently opposed to human rights principles in all these areas. Yet, civil society actors have developed social practices of human rights advocacy whose political significance is not entirely dependent on the Party-State. Despite authoritarianism's lengthening shadows, China's human rights movement has so far proved resourceful and resilient, and the trajectories discussed in this book will continue to shape ongoing struggles"--

Collusion : secret meetings, dirty money, and how Russia helped Donald Trump win
Harding, Luke, 1968- author
New York : Vintage Books, a division of Penguin Random House LLC, [2017]
"December 2016. [the author] and former Moscow bureau chief, quietly meets former MI6 officer Christopher Steele in a London pub to discuss President-elect Donald Trump's Russia connections. A month later, Steele's now-famous dossier sparks what may be the biggest scandal of the modern era. The names of the Americans involved are well-known--Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, George Papadopoulos, Carter Page--but here [the author] also shines a light on powerful Russian figures like Aras Agalarov, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and Sergey Kislyak, whose motivations and instructions may have been coming from the highest echelons of the Kremlin. Drawing on new material and his expert understanding of Moscow and its players, [the author] takes the reader through every bizarre and disquieting detail of the 'Trump-Russia' story--an event so huge it involves international espionage, off-shore banks, sketchy real estate deals, the Miss Universe pageant, mobsters, money laundering, poisoned dissidents, computer hacking, and the most shocking election in American history."--

Storming the wall : climate change, migration, and homeland security
Miller, Todd, 1970- author
San Francisco, CA : City Lights Books, [2017]
On the front lines of climate and borders -- Sustainable national security: climate adaptation for the rich and powerful -- The 21st-century border -- Threat forecast: where climate change meets science fiction -- Phoenix dystopia: mass migration in the homeland -- The Philippines and the future battle at the frontlines of climate change and global pacification -- People's pilgrimage: toward a solution of cross-border solidarity -- Transition and transformation -- Epilogue.

"According to U.S. military planners, climate change now poses the #1 national security threat to the United States, even before terrorism. The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre reports that a person is four times more likely to be forced to move due to environmental disaster than by war, and in 2015 alone, 19.2 million people were displaced worldwide by environmental disasters. Droughts, fires, and floods are driving ever-larger numbers of people to cross national borders, and the problem is not just the vast numbers of people on the move, but also the legions of highly militarized border armies being deployed to stop them. In fast-paced prose, Todd Miller travels to hot spots in the United States and around the globe to investigate how environmental crisis is creating millions of climate refugees who are challenging the developed world's borders and resources. Miller explores how a sense of threat in the United States is giving rise to high-tech surveillance fortresses and fueling calls for an ever-expanding border wall. He also weaves in stories of people engaged in creative defiance of the armies, border patrols, and police being deployed to fight those in need. Miller passionately makes the case for ecological restoration, not border militarization, as the best way to achieve sustainability and security. Todd Miller's writings about the border have appeared in the New York Times, Tom Dispatch, and many other places. Praise for Storming the Wall "Nothing will test human institutions like climate change in this century-as this book makes crystal clear, people on the move from rising waters, spreading deserts, and endless storms could profoundly destabilize our civilizations unless we seize the chance to re-imagine our relationships to each other. This is no drill, but it is a test, and it will be graded pass-fail"--Bill McKibben, author Earth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet "As Todd Miller shows in this important and harrowing book, climate-driven migration is set to become one of the defining issues of our time." This is a must-read book."-Christian Parenti, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, author of Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and the New Geography of Violence "Todd Miller reports from the cracks in the walls of the global climate security state-militarized zones designed to keep powerful elites safe from poor and uprooted peoples. Miller finds hope-hope that may not survive in Trumpworld."-Molly Molloy, Research librarian for Latin America and the border at New Mexico State University and creator of "Frontera List" "Miller delivers a prescient and sober view of our increasingly dystopian planet as the impacts of human-caused climate disruption continue to intensify."-Dahr Jamail, award-winning independent journalist, author of The End of Ice "Storming the Wall demonstrates why the struggles for social justice and ecological sustainability must be one struggle. Todd Miller's important book chronicles how existing disparities in wealth and power, combined with the dramatic changes we are causing in this planet's ecosystems, mean either we come together around our common humanity or forfeit the right to call ourselves fully human."-Robert Jensen, University of Texas at Austin, author of The End of Patriarchy, Plain Radical, and Arguing for Our Lives "Governments across the world today are planning for climate change. The problem, as Todd Miller ably shows, is that they're not planning mitigation, but militarization."-Roy Scranton, author of War Porn and Learning to Die in the Anthropocene "Here is the largely untold back story of the thousands of people turning up on our borders, and challenging the very idea of those frontiers in the process."-Mark Schapiro, author of The End of Stationarity: Searching for the New Normal in the Age of Carbon Shock"--

Corruption and norms : why informal rules matter
Ina Kubbe, Annika Engelbert, editors
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan [2018]
"This book focuses on the role of norms in the description, explanation, prediction and combat of corruption. It conceives corruption as a ubiquitous problem, constructed by specific traditions, values, norms and institutions. The chapters concentrate on the relationship between corruption and social as well as legal norms, providing comparative perspectives from different academic disciplines, theoretical and methodological backgrounds, and various country-studies. Due to the nature of social norms that are embedded in personal, local, and organizational contexts, the contributions in the volume focus in particular on the individual and institutional level of analysis (micro and meso-mechanisms). The book will be of interest to students and scholars across the fields of political science, public administration, socio-legal studies and psychology."--Page four of cover.

Nationalisms in the European arena : trajectories of transnational party coordination
Gómez-Reino Cachafeiro, Margarita, 1966- author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
This book explores how the multiplicity of nationalist parties across the European Union have embraced or refused the process of European integration and made it a platform for transnational coordination in the European arena. The author analyzes how opposing pro-European minority nationalist parties and Eurosceptic populist nationalist parties have diversely politicized European integration over the past three decades and engage in different patterns of Europeanization. Tracing their divergent trajectories of transnational coordination, the book examines the common challenges these opposing nationalist party families face and their systematic fragmentation in the European arena. The book offers a novel approach to understanding the conditions for the emergence of truly European nationalist party families, based on the interaction of ideological, strategic and institutional variables that underpin the Europeanization of heterogeneous nationalisms.0.

Further, it widens the current debate by confronting northern experiences with attitudes and strategies observed in sending countries; clearly demonstrating that international mobility has become a global issue for cities at both ends of the migration spectrum.

"China's rapid rise as a regional and global power is one of the most important political developments of the twenty-first century. Yet the West still largely overlooks or oversimplifies the complex ideas and ideals that have shaped China's national and international development from antiquity to the present day. In this beautifully written introductory text, Youngmin Kim offers a uniquely incisive survey of the major themes in Chinese political thought from customary community to empire, exploring their theoretical importance and the different historical contexts in which they arose. Challenging traditional assumptions about Chinese nationalism and Marxist history, Kim shows that 'China' is not a fixed, single identity, but rather a constantly moving target. His probing, interdisciplinary approach traces the long and nuanced history of Chinese thought as a true tradition anchored around certain key themes; many of which began in the early dynasties and still resonate in China today. Only by appreciating the rich history of political thought in China, he argues, can we begin to understand the intricacies and contradictions of Chinese politics, economy and society today"--

Liquid nationalism and state partitions in Europe
Bianchini, S. author
Cheltenham, UK ; Edward Elgar Publishing, [2017]
"This timely book offers an in-depth exploration of state partitions and the history of nationalism in Europe from the Enlightenment onwards. Stefano Bianchini compares traditional national democratic development to the growing transnational demands of representation with a focus on transnational mobility and empathy versus national localism against the EU project. In an era of multilevel identity, global economic and asylum seeker crises, nationalism is becoming more liquid which in turn strengthens the attractiveness of 'ethnic purity' and partitions, affects state stability, and influences the nature of democracy in Europe. The result may be exposure to the risk of new wars, rather than enhanced guarantees of peace." -- rear cover.

The Iran nuclear deal : bombs, bureaucrats, and billionaires
Jett, Dennis C., 1945- author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
Introduction -- A bit of history -- Who was involved -- The tactics used -- The result and the future.

This book examines attempts to influence the outcome of the negotiations between Iran and the United States over Iran's nuclear capabilities. In particular, it focuses on struggles within the United States around public and congressional opinion with regard to the accord. Trying to prevent a successful outcome to the talks became a cottage industry in Washington, with the casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson being just one of those who were pouring millions of dollars into the effort. On the pro-diplomacy side, there were a wide range of religious, peace, and arms control groups with some financial support coming from the Ploughshares Fund trying to create the space for a negotiated agreement. The tactics of both sides of the debate are described and analyzed to show how a contentious foreign policy issues can become not just a decision for high-level government decision makers, but a wide-ranging fight that involves scoures of nongovernmental organizations, the media, and thousands of activists. -- from back cover.

Why bother with elections?
Przeworski, Adam, author
Cambridge, UK ; Polity Press, 2018
With the collapse of traditional parties around the world and with many pundits predicting a "crisis of democracy", the value of elections as a method for selecting by whom and how we are governed is being questioned. What are the virtues and weaknesses of elections? Are there limitations to what they can realistically achieve? In this deeply informed book world-renowned democratic theorist Adam Przeworski offers a warts-and-all analysis of elections and the ways in which they affect our lives. Elections, he argues, are inherently imperfect but they remain the least bad way of choosing our rulers. According to Przeworski, the greatest value of elections, by itself sufficient to cherish them, is that they process whatever conflicts may arise in society in a way that maintains relative liberty and peace. Whether they succeed in doing so in today's turbulent political climate remains to be seen.--

The crisis of liberal democracy and the path ahead
Reiter, Bernd, 1968- author
London ; Rowman & Littlefield International Ltd., [2017]
Preparing the ground -- Beyond political representation -- Beyond capitalism -- Classic and medieval cases -- Anarchism -- Religious communities and intentional communities -- Native American and indigenous communities -- Contemporary Western cases -- Learning and comparing.

Political representation and democracy are at odds and we need new models to organize politics without relying so heavily on elected representatives. Similarly, capitalism undermines markets, as the rich and wealthy shield their assets and make them untenable for average earners. Elitism thus undermines both democracy and markets and we need to devise ways to limit the power of professional politicians, as well as the asset holdings of the rich so that the goods they hold can re-enter general markets. A broad array of institutions and laws have been enacted in different places and at different times to block economic elitism and protect democratic self-rule. This book presents a number of such cases, historical as well as contemporary, where solutions to the problem of political and economic elitism have successfully been practiced. It then compares these cases systematically, to determine the common factors and hence the necessary conditions for ensuring, and protecting self-rule and equal opportunity. This book encourages the idea that alternatives to representative, capitalist democracy are possible and can be put to practice. --

No is not enough : resisting the new shock politics and winning the world we need
Klein, Naomi, author
[Toronto] : Alfred A. Knopf Canada, 2017
"Remember when it all seemed to be getting better? Before Trump happened? What went wrong, and what can we do about it? Naomi Klein - scourge of brand bullies, disaster capitalists and climate liars - shows us how we got to this surreal and dangerous place, how to stop it getting worse and how, if we keep our heads, we can seize the opportunity to make it better. She reveals how Trump is not a freakish aberration, but an extension of the most powerful trends of the last century: celebrity and CEO-worship, Vegas and Guantanamo, soft porn and hard power, fake news and vulture bankers, all rolled into one. His election was not a peaceful transit but a corporate takeover, by people who've knowingly harmed people, societies and our planet. Now their deliberate shock tactics are generating wave after wave of crises, designed to disorientate us and stop us fighting back. This book is the toolkit for shock resistance, giving all of us what we need (including tips such as 'how to jam the brand' and 'kill your inner.

The politics of immigration : questions and answers
Guskin, Jane, author
New York : Monthly Review Press, [2017]
1. Who are the immigrants? -- 2. Why do people immigrate? -- 3. Does the United States welcome refugees? -- 4. Why can't they just "get legal"? -- 5. Is it easy to be "illegal"? -- 6. Are immigrants hurting our economy? -- 7. Is immigration hurting our health, environment, or culture? -- 8. Are immigrants a threat? -- 9. Enforcement: Is it a solution? -- 10. What about amnesty and "guest worker" programs? -- 11. Why do we jail and deport immigrants? -- 12. Can we open our borders? -- Afterword -- Immigration and the law: a chronology.

U.S. immigration has been the subject of furious debates for decades. On one side, politicians and the media talk about aliens and criminals, with calls to "deport them all." On the other side, some advocates idealize immigrants and gloss over problems associated with immigration. Dialogue becomes possible when we dig deeper and ask tough questions: Why are people in other countries leaving their homes and coming here? What does it mean to be "illegal"? How do immigration raids, prisons, and border walls impact communities? Who suffers and who profits from our current system--and what would happen if we transformed it? The Politics of Immigration: Questions and Answers goes beyond soundbites to tackle these concerns in straightforward language and an accessible question-and-answer format. First published in 2007, this updated and expanded edition is an effective tool to confront current stereotypes and disinformation. Those who believe immigrants take jobs from citizens, don't pay taxes, strain public services, and threaten the dominant culture will find their assumptions challenged with compelling arguments and hard data. Ideal for classroom use, The Politics of Immigration provides those who are undecided about immigration with the facts and clear reasoning they need to develop an informed opinion.

Conscience of a conservative
Flake, Jeff, 1962-
New York : Random House, [2017]
Preface: To stand alone -- The crisis we face -- On bad information and the threat to democracy -- Conscience of a conservative -- On free trade, not-so-free trade, populism, nationalism, and the collapse of what we believe in -- How did this happen? (Our Faustian bargain) -- Note to selves: Country before party -- Dear world: Bear with us -- Toward a new conservatism.

Republican Senator Jeff Flake takes his party to task for embracing nationalism, populism, xenophobia, and the anomalous Trump presidency. The book is an urgent call for a return to bedrock conservative principle and a cry to once again put country before party. "I am a conservative. I believe that there are limits to what government can and should do, that there are some problems that government cannot solve, and that human initiative is best when left unfettered, free from government interference or coercion. I believe that these ideas, tested by time, offer the most freedom and best outcomes in the lives of the most people. But today, the American conservative movement has lost its way. Given the state of our politics, it is no exaggeration to say that this is an urgent matter. The Republican party used to play to a broader audience, one that demanded that we accomplish something. But in this era of dysfunction, our pri mary accomplishment has been constructing the argument that we're not to blame. We have decided that it is better to build and maintain a majority by using the levers of power rather than the art of persuasion and the battle of ideas. We've decided that putting party over country is okay. There are many on both sides of the aisle who think this a good model on which to build a political career--destroying, not building. And all the while, our country burns, our institutions are undermined, and our values are compromised. We have become so estranged from our principles that we no longer know what principle is. America is not just a collection of transactions. America is also a collection of ideas and values. And these are our values. These are our principles. They are not subject to change, owing to political fashion or cult of personality. I believe that we desperately need to get back to the rigorous, fact-based arguments that made us conservatives in the first place. We need to realize that the stakes are simply too high to remain silent and fall in line. That is why I have written this book and am taking this stand."--Jacket.

The once and future liberal : after identity politics
Lilla, Mark, author
New York : Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, [2017]
Introduction: The Abdication -- Anti-politics -- Pseudo-politics -- Politics.

In The Once and Future Liberal, Mark Lilla offers an impassioned, tough-minded, and stinging look at the failure of American liberalism over the past two generations. Although there have been Democrats in the White House, and some notable policy achievements, for nearly forty years the vision that Ronald Reagan offered - small government, lower taxes, and self-reliant individualism - has remained the country's dominant political ideology. And the Democratic Party has offered no convincing competing vision in response. Instead, as Lilla argues, American liberalism fell under the spell of identity politics, with disastrous consequences. Driven originally by a sincere desire to protect the most vulnerable Americans, the left has now unwittingly balkanized the electorate, encouraged self-absorption rather than solidarity, and invested its energies in social movements rather than in party politics. Lilla goes to show how the left's identity-focused individualism insidiously conspired with the amoral economic individualism of the Reaganite right to shape an electorate with little sense of a shared future and near-contempt for the idea of the common good. In the contest for the American imagination, liberals have abdicated. Now they have an opportunity to reset. The left is motivated, and the Republican Party, led by an unpredictable demagogue, is in ideological disarray. To seize this opportunity, Lilla insists, liberals must concentrate their efforts on recapturing our institutions by winning elections. The time for hectoring is over. It is time to reach out and start convincing people from every walk of life and in every region of the country that liberals will stand up for them. We must appeal to - but also help to rebuild - a sense of common feeling among Americans, and a sense of duty to one another. A fiercely argued, no-nonsense book, enlivened by Lilla's acerbic wit and erudition, The Once and Future Liberal is essential reading for our momentous times. -- from dust jacket.

Political leaders beyond party politics
Musella, Fortunato, author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
Leader and party : still an oxymoron? -- The direct election of party heads -- The iron law of leadership : ideology and party organization -- The party leader in government -- Leaders in business -- The personal side of politics.

"This book studies party leaders from selection to post-presidency. Based on data covering a large set of Western countries, and focusing on the trends of personalisation of politics, the volume is one of the first empirical investigations into how party leaders are elected, how long they stay in office, and whether they enter and guide democratic governments. It also provides novel data on how leaders end their career in a broad and diverse range of business activities. Topics covered include political leaders' increasing autonomy, their reinforcement of popular legitimation, often through the introduction of direct election by party rank and file, and their grip on party organization. The book will appeal to students and scholars interested in political parties, political leadership, the transformation of democracy, and comparative politics."--

Tocqueville and Beaumont : aristocratic liberalism in democratic times
Hess, Andreas, editor
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
Introduction: a two-man research machine -- The birth pangs of American democracy -- In search of new liberal politics: reconciling equality with liberty -- Republican by necessity: the revolution of 1848 and beyond -- What remains?

This is the first concise study to give full credit to the collaboration of works between French nobleman, writer and politician Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-59) and his travel companion and friend Gustave de Beaumont (1802-66), and puts this collaboration into its social, historical and theoretical context. It accompanies the two friends to the US and analyses the fruitful encounter between the New and the Old World that was the result of that journey, particularly in relation to emerging Atlantic democracies and revolutions. This includes the hopes but also the problems and contradictions that they have come to represent. The book also follows Tocqueville and Beaumont to England, Ireland, and Algeria. It discusses their political careers and their engagement in the abolitionist movement, their fight for liberal social and political reform, as well as their futile attempt to rationalize French colonization in Algeria.

Crisis, agency, and law in US civil-military relations
Maurer, Daniel, Major, author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2017]
Introduction -- The opening statement -- The case-in-chief: what the law does (not) say -- The expert witnesses: a cross-examination -- The expert witnesses: the fingerprints of agency -- The rebuttal witnesses: from agency to norms to diagnosis -- Exhibit A: scope of responsibility and authority -- Boundaries, or a "poverty of useful and unambiguous authority"? -- Exhibit B: when fidelity and frankness conflict -- Exhibit C: amending the Goldwater-Nichols Act -- Exhibit D: the future fallacy: a civ-mil dialogue -- Closing argument.

This book develops a responsible and practical method for evaluating the success, failure, or "crisis" of American civil-military relations among its political and uniformed elite. The author's premise is that currently there is no objectively fair way for the public at large or the strategic-level elites to assess whether the critical and often obscured relationships between Generals, Admirals, and Statesmen function as they ought to under the US constitutional system. By treating these relationships--in form and practice--as part of a wider principal (civilian)-agency (military) dynamic, the book tracks the "duties"--care, competence, diligence, confidentiality, scope of responsibility--and perceived shortcomings in the interactions between US civilian political authorities and their military advisors in both peacetime and in war.

Europe's hidden federalism : federal experiences of European integration
Kovačević, Bojan, 1980- author
London ; Routledge, 2017
Part I. Federalism and the modern state: friends or foes? -- Federalism, freedom and order -- Federalism and democracy -- Federalism and the making of nations -- Federalism and the challenge of legitimacy -- The challenge of Carl Schmitt for the theory and practice of federalism -- Part II. An attempt to build European federation in the absence of Europeans -- Federal features of the European Union -- Federalism and democracy in the European Union -- Political citizenship deficit in the EU: relevancy of the historical models of federal nation building -- Conclusion: hidden federalism and crisis.

The hidden federal features of the European Union help explain the challenges of legitimacy, democracy and freedom that face an unfinished political community. Ideas about federalism and the reality of existing federal states cannot be sharply divided in an analysis of the EU's multilevel political order, but so far, both scholars and major decision makers have shown interest only in the normal functioning of federal systems: ignoring the dilemma of the federation's legitimate authority has resulted in an existential crisis for the EU which has become ever more manifest over recent years. This book employs a combination of political philosophy and political science, of federal philosophic ideas and their traces in real federal institutions, in order to achieve the task of understanding the federal features of the EU governance system. The first part of the work focuses on building an appropriate theoretical framework to explain the new meanings attached to familiar notions of democracy, legitimacy and citizenship in the context of a political community like the EU. In the second part the federal features of the EU's political system are examined in comparison to other current and historical federal perspectives like the US, Switzerland, Yugoslavia and Germany. Through an analysis of the hidden federal aspects of the EU and the links between hidden federalism and the EU's legitimacy crisis, this book reveals the patterns that should be avoided and gives us guidelines that should be followed if the EU is to become democratic and politically united without jeopardising the state character of its members.--

What happened to the common good? -- Exploitation -- Three structural breakdowns -- The decline of the good in common -- Part III. Can the common good be restored? -- Leadership as trusteeship -- Honor and shame -- Resurrecting truth -- Civic education for all.

"With the warmth and lucidity that have made him one of our most important public voices, Robert B. Reich makes the case for a generous, inclusive understanding of the American project, centering on the moral obligations of citizenship. Rooting his argument in everyday reality and common sense, Reich demonstrates the existence of a common good, and argues that it is this that defines a society or a nation. Societies and nations undergo virtuous cycles that reinforce and build the common good, as well as vicious cycles that undermine it. Over the course of the past five decades, Reich contends, America has been in a slowly accelerating vicious cycle--one that can and must be reversed. But first we need to weigh what really matters, and how we as a country should relate to honor, shame, patriotism, truth, and the meaning of leadership. Powerful, urgent, and utterly vital, this is a heartfelt missive from one of our foremost political thinkers: a fundamental statement about the purpose of society and a cri de coeur to save America's soul"--Amazon.com

(S)electing the president : the perils of democracy
Mezey, Michael L., author
New York, NY : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Candidate quality and the presidential election of 2016 -- Democracy, representation, and elections -- The founders and presidential selection -- Democratization and political parties -- The democratized nomination process -- The democratized media -- Charisma, demagoguery, populism, and celebrity -- Democratization and presidentialism -- The perils of democracy.

Selecting political leaders by popular election is an unquestioned hallmark of representative democracies-the institutional manifestation of Lincoln's promise of a government of the people and by the people. But in 2016, Lincoln's promise seems to have given way to Hamilton's nightmare-with his worries that popular elections would produce demagogues who paid an "obsequious court to the people," appealing to their passions and prejudices rather than to their reason. This book examines the commitment to the widest level of participation among the largest number of citizens in the selection of the president. It looks at two salient characteristics of our current presidential election environment that bring the wisdom of this commitment into question: the declining influence of political parties and the communication revolution in the form of the internet, social media, and cable television. Ultimately, Mezey asks whether our now fully democratized presidential selection process has in fact diminished the quality of our presidential candidates and the campaigns they run, whether the turn to demagoguery that the founders feared has materialized, what the consequences of our presidential selection process have been for American government, and whether or not it would be valuable to rethink our wholehearted commitment to popular election of the president. His answers do not topple our commitment to popular elections but rather point the way toward improving the quality of both participation and democracy.

"International Human Rights studies the ways in which states and other international actors have addressed human rights since the end of World War II. This unique textbook features substantial attention to the domestic politics of human rights, as well as an extensive emphasis on theory. The thoroughly updated fifth edition brings the theories and legal issues related to human rights into sharper focus with a streamlined eleven-chapter organization, separate treatments of rights-based theories and international relations theories, and updated case studies. International Human Rights allows readers to understand how and why human rights are violated, what international action can do to address these violations, and why human rights remain such a small part of international relations"--

Broken : can the Senate save itself and the country?
Shapiro, Ira S., 1947- author
Lanham : Rowman & Littlefield, [2018]
Hallowed ground to scorched earth -- McConnell's power play -- In the shadow of Mansfield's great Senate -- From the Reagan revolution to the Clinton impeachment -- Bipartisanship tried, lost and found -- Obama's first term: strict obstructionism -- Obama's second term: the fiscal cliff and the nuclear option -- The polarized Senate meets the insurgent President -- Politics upended -- Confirmation battles over the President's team -- The Gorsuch nomination: when no compromise is possible -- Investigating the Russian connection -- Catastrophic healthcare -- America versus the world -- Reconsidering the Senate.

"In Broken, Ira Shapiro, a former senior Senate staffer and author of the critically-acclaimed book The Last Great Senate, offers an expert's account of some of the most prominent battles of the past decade and lays out what must be done to restore the Senate's lost luster. Shapiro places the Senate at "ground zero for America's political dysfunction"--The institution that has failed the longest and the worst. Because the Senate, at its best, represented the special place where the Democrats and Republicans worked together to transcend ideological and regional differences and find common ground, its decline has intensified the nation's polarization, by institutionalizing it at the highest level. Shapiro documents this decline and evaluates the prospects of restoration that could provide a way out of the polarized morass that has engulfed Congress"--Amazon.com.

Nuclear multilateralism and Iran : inside EU negotiations
Cronberg, Tarja, author
London ; Routledge, 2017
The EU in the current nuclear order -- The four steps of EU's nuclear dance with Iran : the timeline -- Multilateral negotiations, bilateral results -- The fight for the right to enrich -- The power of sanctions -- The militarization of non-proliferation -- Transforming the nuclear order : policy lessons learned.

Drawing on the author's personal experience, this book presents an insider's chronology and policy analysis of the EU's role in the nuclear negotiations with Iran. The European Union strives to be a global player, a "soft power" leader that can influence international politics and state behavior. Yet critics argue that the EU's Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) remains largely ineffective and incoherent. The EU's early and continuous involvement in the effort to dissuade Iran from developing nuclear weapons can be viewed as a test case for the EU as a global actor. As Chair of the European Parliament's delegation for relations with Iran, Tarja Cronberg had a ringside seat in the negotiations to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Drawing on her experiences leading a parliamentary delegation to Iran and interviews with officials, legislators and opposition leaders in nearly every country participating in the negotiations, as well as reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency, parliaments and independent experts, the author illustrates an insider's strategic understanding of the negotiations. Intersecting history, politics, economics, culture and the broader security context, this book not only delivers a unique analysis of this historic deal and the twelve-year multilateral pursuit of it, but draws from it pertinent lessons for European policy makers for the future. This book will be of much interest to students of nuclear proliferation, EU policy, diplomacy and international relations in general. --

The founders' invention -- Presidents who lost the popular vote -- Who's in charge here?.

Twice in as many decades, a president won the office without the popular vote. Both times, people cried foul on the Electoral College. Detractors claim the institution is antiquated and impedes democracy, but Tara Ross-a lawyer and constitutional scholar-argues that the Electoral College is the best defense of America's constitutional republic.The Indispensable Electoral College makes a winning argument for a necessary protection against "rigged" party elections, coastal elites, and DC insiders who wish to make a career of unchecked ambition.

To liberal thinkers--great and humble alike--the use of force necessarily divides the population into warring factions and produces disruptive change--back cover.

The ideology of failed states : why intervention fails
Woodward, Susan L., 1944 September 6- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2017
Introduction -- What's in a name? -- History of a concept -- State-building as the solution -- Building an international apparatus for state-building -- The real problem of failed states -- Consequences -- Neither security nor development.

What do we mean when we use the term "failed states"? It makes no sense theoretically and empirically, and is a political threat to countries so labeled. To explain the term's popularity, this book begins with its origins, how it shaped the conceptual framework for international development and security in the post-Cold War era, and why. It argues that one should focus on the actors who are promoting and implementing this concept and its policy agenda, not the states so labeled. Detailed analysis of international actors' policies in peacebuilding, statebuilding, development assistance, and armed conflict shows that they focus primarily on building their own operational capacity for intervention, not on statebuilding, that their ideology of failed states responds to the absence in these countries of what they need operationally to act, and that they actually create the characteristics they identify with failed/fragile states. The book concludes with a return to the unreformed international organization of development and security, including its linkage, if the trap of this ideology can be escaped. -- from back cover.

Margaret Thatcher and Women's Politics in the 1950s and 1960s -- Krista Cowman. 9. Conservatism, gender and the politics of everyday life, 1950s-1980s -- Adrian Bingham. 10. Feminist responses to Thatcher and Thatcherism -- Laura Beers. 11. The (feminised) contemporary Conservative party -- Rosie Campbell and Sarah Childs. 12. Conserving Conservative women: A view from the archives -- Jeremy McIlwaine. 13. Women2Win and the feminization of the UK Conservative party -- Baroness Ann Jenkin with an introduction by Sarah Childs.

Rethinking Right-Wing Women explores the institutional structures for and the representations, mobilisation, and the political careers of women in the British Conservative Party since the late 19th century. From the Primrose League (est.1883) to Women2Win (est.2005), the party has exploited women's political commitment and their social power from the grass-roots to the heights of the establishment. Yet, although it is the party that extended the equal franchise, had the first woman MP to sit Parliament, and produced the first two women Prime Ministers, the UK Conservative Party has developed political roles for women that jar with feminist and progressive agendas. Conservative women have tended to be more concerned about the fulfilment of women's duties than the realisation of women's rights. This book tackles the ambivalences between women's politicisation and women's emancipation in the history of Britain's most electorally successful and hegemonic political party. --

Introduction: Is it OK to punch a Nazi? -- The intellectuals -- The racialists -- The channers -- The meninists -- Language -- Media -- Neo-Nazis -- Ordinary guys -- Conspiracy theorists -- The violent fringe -- The White House -- Downfall.

Media accounts to the contrary, the Alt-Right didn't just burst out of nowhere in 2016. They have been building their network quietly for years, using bulletin boards and social media to spread a toxic hybrid of technological utopianism, reactionary philosophy, and racial hatred. Wendling traces the rise of the movement and the evolution of its ideas, and he introduces us to some of its key figures. Exploring links between Alt-Right rhetoric and hate crimes and terrorism, he shows that the evidence connecting them is undeniable.

It is also a sobering chronicle of our democracy's political polarization--a result of our self-constructed, technologically assisted echo chambers."--Amazon.com.

Rally point : five tasks to unite the country and revitalize the American dream
Gibson, Christopher P. author
New York : Twelve, 2017
Practice peace through strength -- Restore founding principles -- Promote a flourishing life -- Keep faith -- Unify and grow.

"A smart and surprising political inventory for how America can reunite and revitalize in a time of crisis. Written by an admired leader of the Republican party, RALLY POINT: Five Tasks to Unite the Country and Revitalize the American Dream looks past the 2016 election, past the finger pointing and conventional political thinking, to focus on clear, primary principles that conservatives must debate and defend to protect the future of America. Raised in a working-class family in upstate New York, the first in his family to go to college, paid for in part by his service in the National Guard, Chris Gibson rose from Private to Colonel in the Army, including combat command in the storied 82nd Airborne Division. RALLY POINT is his story: what he's learned from the "School of Hard Knocks" and how he's applied those precious life lessons during his service in Iraq and in Congress. Drawn from a deep appreciation of history and American exceptionalism, Gibson provides incisive and frank analysis of the current political environment, including President Trump, and provides a roadmap based on time-tested Founding principles to help unite our country and revitalize the American Dream. RALLY POINT is a thoughtful, compelling, enjoyable read - a must for serious-minded Americans looking for answers in this challenging political environment"--

London ; Verso, 2017
A story of our times -- A captive audience -- Don't look back -- Alienation -- Belonging -- Our economy -- Framing the economy -- Our politics -- Making it happen.

"A thrilling new route to a better society A toxic ideology of extreme competition and individualism has come to dominate our world. It misrepresents human nature, destroying hope and common purpose. Only a positive vision can replace it, a new story that re-engages people in politics and lights a path to a better future. George Monbiot shows how new findings in psychology, neuroscience and evolutionary biology cast human nature in a radically different light: as the supreme altruists and cooperators. He shows how we can build on these findings to create a new politics: a "politics of belonging." Both democracy and economic life can be radically reorganized from the bottom up, enabling us to take back control and overthrow the forces that have thwarted our ambitions for a better society. Urgent and passionate, Out of the Wreckage provides the hope and clarity required to change the world"--

Political communication and mobilisation : the Hindi media in India
Neyazi, Taberez Ahmed, 1977- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Chapter 1: Introduction: Political Communication and Mobilisation in India -- Chapter 2: Under Colonial Rule: Mobilisation in the Hindi and English Press -- Chapter 3: Media and Mobilisation in Independent India -- Chapter 4: Localisation, Grassroots Mobilisation and Hindi News Media -- Chapter 5: Political Economy of the Hindi Press -- Chapter 6: The Hybrid Media System, Anti-corruption Movement and Political Mobilisation -- Chapter 7: Agenda-setting and Mobilisation in a Hybrid Media Environment -- Chapter 8: Conclusion: Politics, Power and Mobilisation in Digital India.

This book provides a fresh perspective on the importance of the Hindi media in India's political, social and economic transformation with evidence from the countryside and the cities. Accessed by more than 40 per cent of the public, it continues to play an important role in building political awareness and mobilising public opinion. Instead of viewing the media as a singular entity, this book highlights its diversity and complexity to understand the changing dynamics of political communication shaped by the interactions between the news media, political parties and the public, and how various media forms are being used in a rapidly transforming environment. It also looks at the transformations occurring in the countryside and small towns, away from the glare of the Delhi TV studios. There is commercialisation and infotainment, along with a concern for the poor and the marginalised in the Hindi media-mediated democratic transformation, which is defined here as mobilisation for electoral politics and civil society activism. The book offers insights into how print, television, and digital media work together with, rather than in isolation from, one another to grasp the complexities of the emerging hybrid media environment and the future of mobilisation.

Dawn of a new order : geopolitics and the clash of ideologies
Mullerson, R. A., author
London ; I.B. Tauris & Co. Ltd, 2017
The most significant development in global politics following the end of the bi-polar Cold War era has been the rise of a multi-polar state system. This has led to the emergence of major potential super-powers, global rivalry, international terrorism and the gradual weakening of the one remaining hegemonic, uni-polar state after the Cold War - the US. The idealistic hopes following the collapse of communism have evaporated and Cold War competition between liberal capitalism and communism has been replaced by multi-polar global rivalry that can only be resolved by a balance of power buttressed by international law. In this ambitious and thought-provoking book, Professor Rein Mullerson outlines the challenges associated with the new geopolitics of the twenty-first century. Based on in-depth research over several decades it is an essential tool for understanding the new world order and the ensuing crises in global politics.--

Organizing for policy influence : comparing parties, interest groups, and direct action
Farrer, Benjamin, author
New York, NY : Routledge, 2018
Introduction -- The possibilities of political organizations -- The effect of institutions on organizational choice -- Translating formal theory into empirical hypotheses -- Explaining emergence -- Explaining choices -- Explaining policy -- Explaining motivations -- Conclusion.

In this book, Benjamin Farrer explains how activists can influence the policies they care about, even when they are outnumbered and their issues are ignored. The solution lies in a surprising place: organizational choice. Different types of organizations will be more influential under particular democratic institutions. If they choose the optimal type of organization - given their institutional context - then even minority groups can be influential. Environmentalists are a key example of how small groups can sometimes punch above their weight. Environmentalists in different countries have made different organizational choices. These choices explain whether or not they succeeded in influencing policy. In the empirical chapters that follow, Farrer shows that environmentalists can sometimes be more influential if they form interest groups, but under other institutions, political parties are the optimal organizational choice. Although interest groups are often easier to create, national institutions can sometimes insulate mainstream politicians from niche interest groups. When institutions deny access to interest groups, activists are forced to send the stronger signal of party entry.--

Politics and leadership in North Korea : the guerilla dynasty

London ; Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Approach March: 1912-50 -- The ememy on all sides: 1950-70 -- The tide turns: 1970-80 -- Dwindling options: 1980-6 -- Tactical retreat: 1987-94 -- Triage: 1994-2004 -- Regroup and strike: 2004-11 -- The young marshal takes command: 2011-16 -- Final perspective.

Politics and Leadership in North Korea, now fully updated in this second edition, presents an accessible and comprehensive account of North Korea's political, economic and foreign policies since its creation in 1945. Moving away from media representations of North Korea as dangerously erratic and dysfunctional, Adrian Buzo provides a thorough analysis of Kim Il Sung's vision for the DPRK and demonstrates the consistency of the successive leaderships' approach to politics, economics and international affairs. This second edition has been fully revised and takes into account all the important events of the last fifteen years in North Korea, such as: endemic food shortages; the steady growth of military emphasis in both politics and ideology; the acquisition and continued development of nuclear capabilities; the implementation and eventual failure of South Korea's 'sunshine policy'; the growth of private enterprise and a consumer economy. As such, it will continue to be an essential resource for students of North Korea, East Asian Politics and International Politics.

Governing through regulation : public policy, regulation and the law
Windholz, Eric L., author

Over the past forty years, numerous theoretical advances have been made. From Ayres' and Braithwaite's ground breaking work on 'responsive regulation', we have seen models of 'smart regulation', 'regulatory governance' and 'regulatory capitalism' emerge to capture the growing prevalence and importance of regulation in modern liberal Western capitalist societies. Important advances also have been made in the practice of regulation, with regulators evolving from traditional enforcement focussed 'command and control' models to being 'modern regulators' with a suite of diverse and innovative regulatory tools at their disposal. --

All researchers face the same challenge, not only must they identify a suitable method for analysing their research question, they must also apply it. This volume prepares students and scholars for the key challenges they confront when using social-science methods in their own research. To bridge the gap between knowing methods and actually employing them, the book not only introduces a broad range of interpretive and explanatory methods, it also discusses their practical application. Contributors reflect on how they have used methods, or combinations of methods, such as narrative analysis, interviews, qualitative comparative analysis (QCA), case studies, experiments or participant observation in their own research on non-state actors in international security. Moreover, experts on the relevant methods discuss these applications as well as the merits and limitations of the various methods in use. Research on non-state actors in international security provides ample challenges and opportunities to probe different methodological approaches. It is thus particularly instructive for students and scholars seeking insights on how to best use particular methods for their research projects in International Relations (IR), security studies and neighbouring disciplines. It also offers an innovative laboratory for developing new research techniques and engaging in unconventional combinations of methods. This book will be of much interest to students of non-state security actors such as private military and security companies, research methods, security studies and International Relations in general. --

The idea of failed states : community, society, nation, and patterns of cohesion
Breede, H. Christian, author
London ; Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
The question of why some states are strong and others weak has traditionally been addressed using measures of economic growth, resources, and quality of life. This book compares the dimensions of state strength characterised by community, society, and nation and uses social capital concepts to further illuminate them. Applying this approach across forty-two countries shows 'weak' states exhibiting a consistent and unique patterns of relationships between community, society, and nation as well as equally consistent and unique relationships in strong states. A blend of theory and empirics, The Idea of Failed States present a new way to think about the state - one that applies to both strong and weak alike.--

Immanence and micropolitics : Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Foucault and Deleuze
Gilliam, Christian, author
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press Ltd, [2017]
Christian Gilliam argues that a philosophy of pure immanence is integral to the development of an alternative understanding of the political; one that re-orients our understanding of the self toward the concept of an unconscious, or micropolitical, life of desire. Through proving its philosophical context, lineage and political import, Gilliam shows that immanence is necessary understanding politics and resistance.

Insurgency-based irregular warfare typifies armed conflict in the post-Cold War age. For some years now, western and other governments have struggled to contend with ideologically driven guerrilla movements, religiously inspired militias, and systematic targeting of civilian populations. Numerous conflicts of this type are rooted in experiences of empire breakdown. Yet few multi-empire studies of decolonisation's violence exist. Decolonization and Conflict brings together expertise on a variety of different cases to offer new perspectives on the colonial conflicts that engulfed Europe's empires after 1945. The contributors analyse multiple forms of colonial counter-insurgency from the military engagement of anti-colonial movements to the forced removal of civilian populations and the application of new doctrines of psychological warfare. Contributors to the collection also show how insurgencies, their propaganda and methods of action were inherently transnational and inter-connected. The resulting study is a vital contribution to our understanding of contested decolonization. It emphasises the global connections at work and reveals the contemporary resonances of both anti-colonial insurgencies and the means devised to counter them.

Cultural politics in the age of austerity
edited by David Berry
London ; Routledge, 2017
In 2008 another economic crisis emerged in the long history of capitalism which created a period of austerity economics across many nations. Cultural Politics in the Age of Austerity examines how austerity has impacted upon cultural politics in relation to understanding how established power is both maintained and challenged. The book begins by detailing the meaning of cultural politics before exploring themes such as media discourse, austerity narratives, class, cultural hegemony/government policymaking, social movements and the European Union, and left responses to austerity. It also includes chapters tracing cultural politics in Spain, with a focus on anti-austerity movements and the relationship between austerity and Spanish football. Cultural Politics in the Age of Austerity assesses the impact of a range of cultural/political forms concerning the dynamics of society and relations of power during times of crisis. As such, it will appeal to scholars of culture, media, politics, philosophy, sociology and social psychology. --

Would the world be better without the UN?
Weiss, Thomas G. 1946- author
Cambridge, UK ; Polity Press, 2018
Do we need the United Nations? Would the contemporary world be without its largest intergovernmental organization? And where might it be had the UN's member states and staff performed better? These fundamental questions are explored in this hard-hitting, authoritative book by the leading analyst of UN history and politics, Thomas G. Weiss. While counterfactuals are often dismissed as academic contrivances, they can serve to focus the mind; and, here, Weiss uses them ably to demonstrate the pluses and minuses of multilateral cooperation. He is not shy about UN achievements and failures drawn from its ideas and operatiosn in its three substantive pillars of activities: international peace and security; human rights and humanitarian action; and sustainable development. But, he argues, the inward-looking and populist movements in electoral politics worldwide make robust multilateralism more, not less, compelling. The selection of António Guterres as the ninth UN secretary-general shoudl rekindle critical thinking about the potential for international cooperation. There is a desperate need to reinvigorate and update rather than jettison the UN in responding to threats from climate change to pandemcis, from proliferation to terrorism. Weiss tells you why and how--back cover.

On building peace : rescuing the nation-state and saving the United Nations
Schulenburg, Michael von der, author
Amsterdam : Amsterdam University Press, [2017]
The fading of the post-Cold War peace order -- The failing of the nation-state -- The marginalization of the United Nations -- Rescuing the nation-state -- Building peace on collective security -- Striking a new grand bargain for global peace and security.

Twenty-five years after the end of the Cold War, new geopolitical changes have eroded Western dominance, and in its place has emerged a multipolar world encompassing a number of global and regional players. At the same time, intrastate conflicts have begun replacing interstate wars as the major threat to world peace and security, causing new challenges for diplomats and other peacekeepers accustomed to focusing only on the relations between countries. This book explores these issues and demonstrates the vital need for international organisations such as the United Nations to turn a new eye to events taking place within nation states. Michael von der Schulenburg argues for the development of internationally accepted principles and rules for intervening in intrastate conflicts, including those caused by corrupt governments or militant groups. Ultimately, the book offers a groundbreaking approach to international politics and diplomacy, as well as new tools for the creation of effective peace building strategies.

The rise of Catalan independence : Spain's territorial crisis
Dowling, Andrew, author
London : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
As recently as the mid-2000s, Catalonia was described and analysed by scholars as exhibiting a non-secessionist nationalism and was seen within Europe and beyond as a role model for successful devolution which had much to teach other parts of the world. The Spanish state seemed to be on a journey towards an authentic federal order and was generally admired. However, the new century has been marked by an ever-growing independence movement, with 47.8 per cent of Catalonia voting in favour of independence in September 2015. Pro-independence mobilization has produced a rupture in political relations with the rest of Spain leading to a sovereignty struggle with Madrid. This book explores how an accumulation of long-, medium- and short-term factors have produced the current situation and why the Spanish territorial model has been unable or possibly, unwilling, to respond. The Catalan question is not purely a Spanish problem: it has direct implications for the traditional nation-state model, in Europe and beyond.--

What does it mean to be liberal in neoliberal conditions? In this collection of short essays, contributors from sociology, politics and media and communications argue for the continued relevance of liberals and liberalism in a seemingly illiberal age. The authors interrogate the theories, histories, practices and contradictions of liberalism in relation to four central areas of public life: human rights, ethnicity and gender, education and the media. They contend that liberalism in all its forms continues to underpin specific institutions such as the university, the free press, the courts and parliamentary democracy, and that liberal ideas are regularly mobilised in areas such as counter-terrorism, minority rights, privacy and the pursuit of knowledge. They grapple with the transformations in, as well as the transformative aspects of, liberalism and highlight both its liberating and limiting capacities. We may not agree on much but we can certainly agree that an understanding of liberalism is simply too important to be left to the liberals. --

"Why have so few countries managed to leave systematic corruption behind, while in many others modernization is still a mere façade? How do we escape the trap of corruption, to reach a governance system based on ethical universalism? In this unique book, [the editors] lead a team of eminent researchers on an illuminating path towards deconstructing the few virtuous circles in contemporary governance. The book combines a solid theoretical framework with quantitative evidence and case studies from around the world. While extracting lessons to be learned from the success cases covered, [this book] avoids being prescriptive and successfully contributes to the understanding of virtuous circles in contemporary good governance. Offering a balanced and grounded perspective, this collection combines analytic narratives of existing virtuous circles and how they were established, with an analysis of the global evidence. In doing so the authors explain why governance is so resistant to change, and describe the lessons to be remembered for international anti-corruption efforts. Exploring the primacy of politics over economic development, and in order to understand how vicious circles can be broken, the expert contributions trace the progress of countries that have successfully transitioned. Unprecedentedly, this book goes beyond the tests of different variables to showcase human agency on every continent and reveals why some nations make the best and others the worst of the same development legacies. This comprehensive examination of virtuous circles of governance will appeal to all scholars with an interest in transitions, democratization, anti-corruption and good governance. Policy-makers and practitioners in the fields of international development, good governance and democracy support will find it an invaluable resource"--

Migrants and citizens : justice and responsibility in the ethics of immigration

Foreword / by Daniel G. Groody, CSC -- Introduction -- The inadequacy of human rights and the preferential option for the poor -- Migration theory and migration ethics -- In search of better narratives -- Theories of justice in global perspective -- Justice as fidelity to the demands of a relationship -- Justice as responsibility to relationships -- Conclusion: The Good Samaritan revisited.

What responsibilities do citizens have to migrants and potential migrants? What responsibilities do migrants themselves have? What is the basis of those responsibilities? In this book Tisha Rajendra reframes the confused and often heated debate surrounding immigration and develops a Christian ethic that can address these neglected questions. Rajendra begins by illuminating the flawed narratives about migrants that are often used in political debates on the subject. She goes on to propose a new definition of justice that is based on responsibility to relationships, drawing on the concrete experience of migrants, ethical theory, migration theory, and the relational ethics of the Bible.

What is patriotism? -- Freedom. The vote ; Dissent ; The press -- Community. Inclusion ; Empathy ; Immigration -- Exploration. Science ; Books ; The arts -- Responsibility. The environment ; Public education ; Service -- Character. Audacity ; Steady ; Courage.

At a moment of crisis over our national identity, journalist Dan Rather reflects on what it means to be an American. He reminds us of the principles upon which the United States was founded. Looking at the freedoms that define us, from the vote to the press; the values that have transformed us, from empathy to inclusion to service; the institutions that sustain us, such as public education; and the traits that helped form our young country, such as the audacity to take on daunting challenges in science and medicine, Rather brings to bear his decades of experience on the frontlines of the world's biggest stories. As a living witness to historical change, he offers up an intimate view of history, tracing where we have been in order to help us chart a way forward and heal our bitter divisions.

Neither liberal nor conservative : ideological innocence in the American public

Chicago ; The University of Chicago Press, [2017]
Introduction: innocent of ideology? -- Converse and his critics -- Converse's claim -- The great debate -- The nature of ideological identification in mass publics -- Meaning and measurement of ideological identification -- Becoming ideological -- In the long run -- Consequences? -- Conclusion -- Findings and implications -- Appendix A: alternative measures of ideological identification -- Appendix B: are moderates ideological?

Congress is crippled by theological conflict. The political parties are more polarized today than at any time since the Civil War. Americans disagree, fiercely, on just about everything, from terrorism and national security, to taxes and government spending, to immigration and gay marriage. Well, American elites disagree fiercely. But average Americans do not. This, at least, was the position staked out by Philip E. Converse in his famous essay on belief systems, which drew on surveys carried out during the Eisenhower era to conclude that most Americans were innocent of ideology. In Neither Liberal nor Conservative, Donald R. Kinder and Nathan P. Kalmoe argue that ideological innocence applies nearly as well to the current state of American public opinion. Real liberals and real conservatives are found in impressive numbers only among those who are deeply engaged in political life. The ideological battles between American political elites show up as scattered skirmishes in the general public, if they show up at all. If ideology is out of reach for all but a few who are deeply and seriously engaged in political life, how do Americans decide whom to elect president or whether affirmative action is good or bad? Kinder and Kalmoe offer a persuasive group-centered answer. Political preferences arise less from ideological differences than from the attachments and antagonisms of group life. -- from back cover.

Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Introduction: Researching party system institutionalization -- Varieties of party system institutionalization -- Explaining diversity : an eclectic analysis of party system institutionalization -- Cape Verde : an adequately institutionalized party system -- Zambia : an inadequately institutionalized party system -- Mozambique : an overinstitutionalized party system -- Conclusion: Converging trends of party system development? Africa from a comparative perspective.

Institutionalization has become a paramount concept to compare party systems in regions spanned by the third wave of democratization. Based on raw electoral data from 30 sub-Saharan African countries observed between 1966 and 2016, this text explores the causes and mechanisms of Party System Institutionalization (PSI) and its relationship with the processes of mobilization and democratization. Posing key theoretical and empirical questions in cross-regional comparison, it examines and reveals the defining properties of PSI, how they should be measured and under what conditions it varies. In doing so, it contributes with a new explanatory framework of party system development - that gives primacy to modes of transition, political institutions and party-citizen linkages - to further cross-regional comparisons among third-wave party systems. This text will be of key interest to scholars and students of democratization, elections, and African politics, and more broadly to comparative politics. --

The future of intelligence
Lowenthal, Mark M., author
Cambridge, UK ; Polity Press, 2018
What this book is about -- Technology vectors -- Analysis vectors -- Governance vectors -- Looking ahead.

"Intelligence is, by definition, a shadowy business. Yet many aspects of this secret world are now more openly analyzed and discussed, a trend which has inevitably prompted lively debate about intelligence gathering and analysis: what should be allowed? What boundaries, if any, should be drawn? And what changes and challenges lie ahead for intelligence activities and agencies? In this compelling book, leading intelligence scholar Mark Lowenthal explores the future of intelligence. There are, he argues, three broad areas--information technology and intelligence collection; analysis; and governance--that indicate the potential for rather dramatic change in the world of intelligence. But whether these important vectors for change will improve how intelligence works or make it more difficult remains to be seen. The only certainty is that intelligence will remain an essential feature of statecraft in our increasingly dangerous world. Drawing on the author's forty years' experience in U.S. intelligence, The Future of Intelligence offers a broad and authoritative starting point for the ongoing debate about what intelligence could be and how it may function in the years ahead"--

The origins of international counterterrorism : Switzerland at the forefront of crisis negotiations, multilateral diplomacy, and intelligence cooperation (1969-1977)
Guttmann, Aviva, author
Leiden, The Netherlands ; Brill, [2018]
Switzerland suffered four major terrorist attacks in 1969 and 1970, which forced the Swiss government to address the issue of international terrorism for the first time. Subsequently, "neutral" Switzerland worked closely with Western Cold War powers to develop international counterterrorism measures and forged a European-Israeli counterterrorist alignment to counter Palestinian terrorism in Europe.0Using recently declassified archival records, this book is the first study to examine how the Swiss government positioned the country within the international struggle against terrorism. The book brings to light the creation of the Club de Berne, a secret European network of intelligence agencies connected to Israel and the United States. It offers new insights about the history of Swiss, Western European, and Israeli security cooperation.

Political participation, diffused governance, and the transformation of democracy : patterns of change
Peters, Yvette, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
The changing democratic system -- Patterns of participation: the impact of competence diffusion -- Democracy at the crossroads? Some conclusions.

"Although democratic governments have introduced a number of institutional reforms in part intended to increase citizens' political involvement, studies show a continued decline in regular political engagement. This book examines different forms of political participation in democracies, and in what way the delegation of public responsibilities--or, the diffusion of politics--has affected patterns of participation since the 1980s. The book addresses this paradox by directly investigating the impact of institutional changes on citizens' political participation empirically. It re-analyses patterns of political participation in contemporary democracies, providing an in-depth time series cross-sectional analysis that helps develop a better understanding of how variation in political participation can be explained, both between countries and over time. As such, it develops an institutional theoretical framework which can help to explain levels of participation and shows that, instead of displaying more political apathy, citizens have reallocated or displaced their activities to a broader array of forms of participation. This book will be of key interest to students and scholars of comparative politics, democratization, political participation and electoral politics"--

Can governments earn our trust?
Kettl, Donald F., author
Cambridge, UK ; Polity Press, 2017
"Some analysts have called distrust the biggest governmental crisis of our time. It is unquestionably a huge problem, undermining confidence in our elected institutions, shrinking social capital, slowing innovation, and raising existential questions for democratic government itself. What's behind the rising distrust in democracies around the world and can we do anything about it? In this lively and thought-provoking essay, Donald F. Kettl, a leading scholar of public policy and management, investigates the deep historical roots of distrust in government, exploring its effects on the social contract between citizens and their elected representatives. Most importantly, the book examines the strategies that present-day governments can follow to earn back our trust, so that the officials we elect can govern more effectively on our behalf"--

The guanxi of relational international theory
Kavalski, Emilian, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Introduction : the Columbus syndrome of international relations -- A relational dance or a scripted Concert of Europe? -- The relational turn(s) in the Anglosphere and Sinosphere of international relations -- The guanxi of relationality -- Conclusion : a relational theory of international relations beyond the Eurocentric frame.

"This book offers a relational theory of International Relations (IR). To show the ways in which the relationality is foreshadowed in IR conversations it makes the following three points: 1) it recovers a mode of IR theorizing as itinerant translation; 2) it deploys the concept and practices of guanxi (employed here as a heuristic device revealing the infinite capacity of international interactions to create and construct multiple worlds) to uncover the outlines of a relational IR theorizing; and 3) it demonstrates that relational theorizing is at the core of projects for worlding IR. By engaging with the phenomenon of relationality, Emilian Kavalski invokes the complexity of possible worlds and demonstrates new possibilities for powerful ethical-political innovations in IR theorizing. Thus, relational IR theorizing emerges as an optic which both acknowledges the agency of 'others' in the context of myriad interpretative intersections of people, powers, and environments (as well as their complex histories, cultures, and agency) and stimulates awareness of the dynamically-intertwined contingencies through which meanings are generated contingently through interactions in communities of practice. The book will have a strong appeal to the broad academic readership in Asian Studies, Political Science, Comparative Politics, International Relations theory and students and scholars of non-/post-Western International Relations and non-/post-Western Political Thought."--Provided by publisher.

The demise and rebirth of American third parties : poised for political revival?
Tamas, Bernard Ivan, author
New York : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Introduction : a third-party revival? -- Unraveling the conundrum of third-party decline -- Duverger's law and the American electoral system -- The impact of ballot access laws -- The prohibition of fusion -- Do primaries undermine third parties? -- Co-optation and third-party waves -- The decline and rise of political polarization -- The evolution of party resources -- Conclusion : a reemergence of third parties?

Virtually all academic books on American third parties in the last half-century assume that they have largely disappeared. This book challenges that orthodoxy by explaining the (temporary) decline of third parties, demonstrating through the latest evidence that they are enjoying a resurgence, and arguing that they are likely to once again play a significant role in American politics. The book is based on a wealth of data, including district-level results from US House of Representatives elections, state-level election laws after the Civil War, and recent district-level election results from Australia, Canada, India, and the United Kingdom.

Global power transition and the future of the European Union
Yeşilada, Birol A., author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2018
Today, the European Union faces challenges that threaten not only internal cohesion but also its position in the global system. This book is about the future of the EU in the light of global power transition taking place in the twenty-first century and demonstrates how its future rests on a delicate balance between policy challenge, member states' interests, and convergence or divergence of societal values across its peoples. The book examines factors behind the decline of the EU relative to the rise of China and other powers in the global hierarchy and what policy options are available for EU leaders to implement in order to compete as a global actor. It analyses determinants of regional integration and key policy challenges the EU faces in its quest for an "ever deeper union," and identifies significant factors (i.e., power relations, economic relations, emergent social values across the EU) that can explain the likelihood of further integration or conflict between EU member states. This text will be essential reading for scholars, students, and practitioners interested in European Union politics international relations, security studies, and comparative politics. --

Hearts and minds : the battle for the Conservative Party from Thatcher to the present
Letwin, Oliver, 1956- author
London : Biteback Publishing, 2017
'Hearts and Minds' is part memoir, part political history and part history of ideas. In it, former Cabinet minister Oliver Letwin explains how the central ideas and policies of the modern Conservative Party came into being, how they played out over the period from Mrs Thatcher to Mrs May, and what needs to happen next in order to make the country a better place to live. Far from being a sugar-coated version of events, Letwin tells a story that he hopes will persuade readers that politicians are capable of recognising their mistakes and learning from them - and will show that social and economic liberalism, if correctly conceived, are capable of addressing the issues that confront us today.

They also note how attachments to nation can often generate powerful emotions, happiness and pride as well as anger and frustration, which can be used to mobilize substantial numbers of people into action.--

Labour and the left in the 1980s
edited by Jonathan Davis and Rohan McWilliam ; foreword by Peter Tatchell
Manchester : Manchester University Press, 2018
This volume of essays constitutes the first history of Labour and left-wing politics in the decade when Margaret Thatcher reshaped modern Britain. Leading scholars explore aspects of left-wing culture, activities and ideas at a time when social democracy was in crisis. There are articles about political leadership, economic alternatives, gay rights, the miners' strike, the Militant Tendency and the politics of race. The book also situates the crisis of the left in international terms as the socialist world began to collapse. Tony Blair's New Labour disavowed the 1980s left, associating it with failure, but this volume argues for a more complex approach. Many of the causes it championed are now mainstream, suggesting that the time has come to reassess 1980s progressive politics, despite its undeniable electoral failures. With this in mind, the contributors offer ground-breaking research and penetrating arguments about the strange death of Labour Britain.--

This edited collection focuses on concepts of globalization, glocalization, transnationalism and cosmopolitanism. The contributions provide evidence of how in practice, global dynamics and individual lives are interrelated. It presents theoretical reflections on how the local, the transnational and global dimensions of social life are entwined and construct the meaning of one another, and offers everyday examples of how individuals and organizations try to answer global challenges in local contexts. The book closely focuses on migration processes, as one of the main phenomena allowing a high number of people from contemporary society to directly experience supranational dynamics, either as migrants or inhabitants of the places where migrants pass through or settle down.

Political participation in a changing world : conceptual and empirical challenges in the study of citizen engagement
Theocharis, Yannis, author
New York, NY : Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Would You Recognize a Form of Political Participation if You Saw One? -- The Continuous Expansions of Political Participation -- The Continuous Expansions of Concepts and Definitions of Political Participation -- Conceptualizing Political Participation -- Measuring Old and New Forms of Political Participation -- A Road Map for the Study of Political Participation.

"In the last decades, political participation expanded continuously. This expansion includes activities as diverse as voting, tweeting, signing petitions, changing your social media profile, demonstrating, boycotting products, joining flash mobs, attending meetings, throwing seedbombs, and donating money. But if political participation is so diverse, how do we recognize participation when we see it? Despite the growing interest in new forms of citizen engagement in politics, there is virtually no systematic research investigating what these new and emerging forms of engagement look like, how prevalent they are in various societies, and how they fit within the broader structure of well-known participatory acts conceptually and empirically. The rapid spread of internet-based activities especially underlines the urgency to deal with such challenges. In this book, Yannis Theocharis and Jan W. van Deth put forward a systematic and unified approach to explore political participation and offer new conceptual and empirical tools with which to study it. Political Participation in a Changing World will assist both scholars and students of political behavior to systematically study new forms of political participation without losing track of more conventional political activities."--Provided by publisher.

After the enlightenment : political realism and international relations in the mid-twentieth century
Guilhot, Nicolas, 1970- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2017
Introduction -- The realist gambit -- or the end of political science -- American Katechon: Christian realism and the theological foundations of international relations theory -- The making of the realist tradition: Felix Gilbert and the reclaiming of Machiavelli -- The Kuhning of reason: political realism and decision-making after Thomas Kuhn -- Cyborg pantocrator: at the origins of neorealism -- The Americanization of realism: Kenneth Waltz, the security dilemma, and the problem of decision-making.

After the Enlightenment is the first attempt at understanding modern political realism as a historical phenomenon. Realism is not an eternal wisdom inherited from Thucydides, Machiavelli or Hobbes, but a twentieth-century phenomenon rooted in the interwar years, the collapse of the Weimar Republic, and the transfer of ideas between Continental Europe and the United States. The book provides the first intellectual history of the rise of realism in America, as it informed policy and academic circles after 1945. It breaks through the narrow confines of the discipline of international relations and resituates realism within the crisis of American liberalism. Realism provided a new framework for foreign policy thinking and transformed the nature of American democracy. This book sheds light on the emergence of 'rational choice' as a new paradigm for political decision-making and speaks to the current revival in realism in international affairs. --

Those undertaking peace talks often argue that peace should come before justice. The many case studies in this book, from Sierra Leone to Colombia, not only confront this notion, but also challenge human rights advocates to recognize the difficulties in negotiating justice and protecting the rights of victims. the final chapter on the Colombian peace process in particular offers hope, showing the importance of including victims and civil society in these discussions.

Ontopolitics in the anthropocene : an introduction to mapping, sensing and hacking
Chandler, David, 1962- author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2018
The Anthropocene captures more than a debate over how to address the problems of climate change and global warming. Increasingly, it is seen to signify the end of the modern condition itself and potentially to open up a new era of political possibilities. This is the first book to look at the new forms of governance emerging in the epoch of the Anthropocene. Forms of rule, which seek to govern without the handrails of modernist assumptions of 'command and control' from the top-down; taking on board new ontopolitical understandings of the need to govern on the grounds of non-linearity, complexity and entanglement. The book is divided into three parts, each focusing on a distinct mode or understanding of governance: Mapping, Sensing and Hacking. Mapping looks at attempts to govern through designing adaptive interventions into processes of interaction. Sensing considers ways of developing greater real time sensitivity to changes in relations, often deploying new technologies of Big Data and the Internet of Things. Hacking analyses the development of ways of 'becoming with', working to recomposition and reassemble relations in new and creative forms. This work will be of great interest to students and scholars of international politics, international security and international relations theory and those interested in critical theory and the way this is impacted by contemporary developments. --

Wilson, Julie A., 1975- author
New York, NY : Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Introduction : living in competition -- Part I. Critical foundations. A new hegemony : the rise of neoliberalism -- Neoliberal truths and consequences : the four Ds -- The cultural powers of neoliberalism : a case study -- Part II. Neoliberal culture. The hustle : self-enterprise and neoliberal labor -- THe moods of enterprise : neoliberal affect and the care of the self -- Enterprising democracy : neoliberal citizenship and the privatization of politics -- Conclusion : living in common.

"Thanks to the rise of neoliberalism over the past several decades, we live in an era of rampant anxiety, insecurity, and inequality. While neoliberalism has become somewhat of an academic buzzword in recent years, this book offers a rich and multilayered introduction to what is arguably the most pressing issue of our times. Engaging with prominent scholarship in media and cultural studies, as well as geography, sociology, economic history, and political theory, author Julie Wilson pushes against easy understandings of neoliberalism as market fundamentalism, rampant consumerism, and/or hyper-individualism. Instead, Wilson invites readers to interrogate neoliberalism in true cultural studies fashion, at once as history, theory, practice, policy, culture, identity, politics, and lived experience. Indeed, the book's primary aim is to introduce neoliberalism in all of its social complexity, so that readers can see how neoliberalism shapes their own lives, as well as our political horizons, and thereby start to imagine and build alternative worlds."--Provided by publisher.

Reappraising European IR theoretical traditions
Jørgensen, Knud Erik, author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2017]
Introduction -- Diversity -- Reflexivity -- Traditions -- Europe -- Discipline -- Reconstruction -- Hegemony -- Conclusions.

"This book is about European IR theoretical traditions, their origins, and key figures. Theorizing is among the most important activities that take place within scientific disciplines. Scholars therefore routinely talk/debate about the discipline of IR and its theories, theories are often used to form the pedagogical backbone of IR and theories are also a key part of scholarly identities. Over time, theories crystallize in to schools of thought, strands of theorizing and theoretical traditions. This book and the volumes that will follow focus on the origins and trajectories of theoretical traditions, and key figures of IR thought in Europe in the 20th Century. The authors are situated in Europe, and it is thus the origins and trajectories of European theoretical traditions, its intellectual history and contemporary forms of theoretical knowledge today, that are on the agenda. In order to achieve this ambitious aim, we opt for a transnational sociological history approach, thus going beyond the national lens through which IR has been predominantly studied. The series will have an integrative function and contribute to a globalized discourse on IR as a discipline. The key benefits of this first volume is that it outlines IR theoretical traditions for the first time ever, provides a novel framework for exploring IR's theories, and contributes to define and strengthen the European identity of IR. This book is an invaluable resource for scholars of IR."--

Introduction : the right to have rights -- The right / Stephanie DeGooyer -- To have / Lida Maxwell -- Rights / Samuel Moyn -- Of whom? / Alastair Hunt -- Afterword(s) / Astra Taylor.

"Sixty years ago, the political theorist Hannah Arendt, deprived of her German citizenship as a Jew and in exile from her country, observed that before people can enjoy any of the "inalienable" Rights of Man--before there can be any specific rights to education, work, voting, and so on--there must first be such a thing as "the right to have rights." The concept received little attention at the time, but in our age of refugee crises and extra-state war, the phrase has become the center of a crucial and lively debate. Here five leading thinkers from varied disciplines--including history, law, politics, and literary studies--discuss the critical issue of the basis of rights and the meaning of radical democratic politics today"--

A conceptual investigation of justice
Johannsen, Kyle, author
New York, NY : Routledge, 2018
"Conceptual analysis has fallen out of favor in political philosophy. The influence of figures like John Rawls and Ronald Dworkin has led political philosophy to focus on questions about what should be done, and to ignore questions about the usage of words. In this book, [the author] calls for renewed attention to the manner in which the word 'justice' is and should be used. Focusing on the late work of G.A. Cohen, [the author] argues that debates over both the content and scope of egalitarian justice are, to a large extent, really just conceptual. Whereas some philosophers have been using the term 'justice' to refer to one among a plurality of values, others have been using it to refer to institutional rightness. Though the latter use of 'justice' is presently more dominant, he argues that much is to be gained from thinking of justice as one value among many. Doing so sheds light on the nature of both democracy and legitimacy, and, paradoxically, makes better sense of the idea that justice is 'the first virtue of institutions'."--

War on peace : the end of diplomacy and the decline of American influence
Farrow, Ronan, 1987- author
New York, NY : W.W. Norton & Company, [2018]
Prologue : Mahogany Row massacre -- Part I. The last diplomats. American myths -- Lady Taliban -- Dick -- The Mango Case -- The other Haqqani Network -- Duplicity -- The frat house -- Mission : Impossible -- Walking on glass -- Farmer Holbrooke -- A little less conversation -- A-Rod -- Promise me you'll end the war -- The wheels come off the bus -- The memo -- The real thing -- Part II.

Present at the destruction. The state of the Secretary -- The mosquito and the sword -- Meltdown -- Epilogue : The tool of first resort.

United States foreign policy is undergoing a dramatic transformation. Institutions of diplomacy and development are reeling from deep budget cuts. The diplomats who make America's deals and protect its citizens around the world are walking out in droves. Offices across the State Department sit empty, while abroad the military-industrial complex has assumed the work once undertaken by peacemakers. In a journey from the corridors of power in Washington, DC, to some of the most remote and dangerous places on earth--Afghanistan, Somalia, and North Korea among them--investigative journalist Ronan Farrow illuminates one of the most consequential and poorly understood changes in American history. His firsthand experience as a State Department official affords a personal look at some of the last standard bearers of traditional statecraft, including Richard Holbrooke, who made peace in Bosnia and died while trying to do so in Afghanistan. Drawing on newly unearthed documents, and richly informed by rare interviews with warlords, whistle-blowers, and policymakers--including every living secretary of state from Henry Kissinger to Hillary Clinton to Rex Tillerson--Farrow makes the case for an endangered profession.

Google and democracy : politics and the power of the Internet
Richey, Sean., author
New York, NY : Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Introduction : direct democracy, political knowledge, and the Internet -- Internet politics and the computer science of Google -- Google search returns on ballot measures -- Click behavior and direct democracy -- Learning happens : political knowledge and three ballot measures -- Internet research and intellectually secure decisions in direct democracy -- Real-world applications : does Google use correlate with real-world political behavior? -- Conclusions and directions for future research.

"For the first time in human history, access to information on almost any topic is accessible through the Internet. A powerful extraction system is needed to disseminate this knowledge, which for most users is Google. Google Search is an extremely powerful and important component to American political life in the twenty-first century, yet its influence is poorly researched or understood. Sean Richey and J. Benjamin Taylor explore for the first time the influence of Google on American politics, specifically on direct democracy. Using original experiments and nationally representative cross-sectional data, Richey and Taylor show how Google Search returns quality information, that users click on quality information, and gain political knowledge and other contingent benefits. Additionally, they correlate Google usage with real-world voting behavior on direct democracy. Building a theory of Google Search use for ballot measures, Google and Democracy is an original addition to the literature on the direct democracy, Internet politics, and information technology. An indispensable read to all those wishing to gain new insights on how the Internet has the power to be a normatively valuable resource for citizens."--Provided by publisher.

Greece and the reinvention of politics
Badiou, Alain, author
Brooklyn, NY : Verso, 2018
Questions of method -- Greece, the new imperial practices ... and the reinvention of politics -- Democratic non-existence -- The contemporary impotence -- Eleven points inspired by the situation in Greece -- Eleven melancholic points regarding the development of the Greek situation -- On the supposed 'refugee crisis' -- On politics today.

"Over the last six years, Greece has provided the world with 'an open-air political lesson.' The country's deep economic and social crisis has exposed the fundamental contradictions of the European Union, and indeed the capitalist world as a whole. It has been a test case for movements seeking to put an end to the authoritarian anarchy of neoliberal capitalism. The Greek resistance to EU institutions and financial-market hegemony offered a beacon of hope. Yet the "movementist" politics of 2011 could not build anything lasting, and Syriza's efforts as a party of government soon led to impasse. For Alain Badiou, it is not enough to mourn this defeat--we must understand why such a vigorous opposition could fail. 'Greece and the Reinvention of Politics' argues that an opposition of real consequence must revive the 'communist hypothesis,' the vision of an alternative state structure. The 'orienting maxims' that this hypothesis provides light the way for effective political action. Written in the storm of the crisis, the interventions collected in this book offer a path out of our contemporary powerlessness."--Back cover.

Russia and the western far right : tango noir
Shekhovtsov, Anton, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2018
Soviet Russia in the western far right perspective : ideology, collaboration, active measures -- Russia's opening to the western far right -- Putin's Russia, an authoritarian kleptocracy with a twist -- Far right election observers in the service of the Kremlin's domestic and foreign policies -- Undermining the West through mass media -- Far right structures in Europe as pro-Moscow front organisations -- The Moscow-Strasbourg-Brussels axis.

"The growing influence of Russia on the Western far right has been much discussed in the media recently. This book is the first detailed inquiry into what has been a neglected but critically important trend: the growing links between Russian actors and Western far right activists, publicists, ideologues, and politicians. The author uses a range of sources including interviews, video footage, leaked communications, official statements and press coverage in order to discuss both historical and contemporary Russia in terms of its relationship with the Western far right. Initial contacts between Russian political actors and Western far right activists were established in the early 1990s, but these contacts were low profile. As Moscow has become more anti-Western, these contacts have become more intense and have operated at a higher level. The book shows that the Russian establishment was first interested in using the Western far right to legitimise Moscow's politics and actions both domestically and internationally, but more recently Moscow has begun to support particular far right political forces to gain leverage on European politics and undermine the liberal-democratic consensus in the West. Contributing to ongoing scholarly debates about Russia's role in the world, its strategies aimed at securing legitimation of Putin's regime both internationally and domestically, modern information warfare and propaganda, far right politics and activism in the West, this book draws on theories and methods from history, political science, area studies, and media studies and will be of interest to students, scholars, activists and practitioners in these areas."--Provided by publisher.

Deconstructing the dynamics of world-societal order : the power of governmentality in Palestine / Jan Busse
Busse, Jan, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Global Palestine and world society -- Conceptualizing governamentability in world society -- Contested numbers : the biopolitics of statistics in Palestine -- The surveillance of good governance in Palestine -- The order of the subject : technologies of the self in Palestine.

To get a better sense of power dynamics in global politics, this book presents an innovative theoretical framework, combining a critical engagement with, and further development of, Michel Foucault's governmentality on the one hand, and the theory of world society of the Stanford School of Sociology on the other. Making an original contribution to academic debates about power and global political order, this book develops a comprehensive theoretical perspective on power relations and political dynamics. The book starts from the presupposition that any theoretical engagement of that kind requires nuanced empirical study as well. It therefore analyzes the dynamics of world-societal order in the concrete empirical example of Palestine, and raises the question of how its political and societal order comes into existence. The author argues that governmentality represents a fundamental pattern of political order in world society that also profoundly affects power dynamics in Palestine. This insight has two important implications: First, power relations do not follow dichotomous distinctions such as international/domestic or global/local, but manifest themselves within world society. Second, therefore, order that comes into existence in Palestine needs to be understood as world-societal order. Offering a comprehensive understanding of power relations and patterns of political order(ing) embedded in world society, the book provides a deeper understanding of the complex dynamics that contribute to the political and societal order of Palestine. This book will be of interest to scholars and students of Middle East Studies, Palestine Studies, International Relations, International Political Sociology, International Relations Theory, Governmentality Studies, and Political Theory.

Advances in e-governance : theory and application of technological initiatives
Trotta, Anthony M., 1974- author
New York, NY : Routledge, 2018
Introduction : E-government and E-governance -- E-governance era : paradigm shifts and megatrends, Janus face of technology, digital divide, and the hype curve/hype cycle -- Technology models and societal preferences : technology acceptance model (TAM), diffusion of innovation (DOI), and web trust -- Scientific knowledge, technocrats, and the role of the expert -- Open innovation, advancements in technological innovation and the impact of modern networks on participation -- Deliberative democracy and citizen participation -- Modern deliberative democracy means and web 2.0 technology : social media and crowdsourcing -- Modern deliberative democracy means and web 2.0 technology : suggestion boxes, deliberative mini-publics, citizen review panels, deliberative polls and public meetings -- E-governance, deliberative democracy and voting processes: part one -- E-governance, deliberative democracy and voting processes: part two.

"E-Governance as a field of study is relatively new when considered within the broader historical context of US democracy. The advent of the modern Internet in the early 1990s yielded new technologies that began to shift citizen expectations of how government can -- and in many cases should -- govern. Though innovations continue to emerge at a rapid pace, these technologies may be used to reinforce long-held deliberative democracy principles, including transparency, accountability and flexibility. [This book explores] the role that technological innovation plays in facilitating government action and citizen participation. [The author] differentiates e-governance from e-government and examines the increasingly important role social media and crowdsourcing have come to play in our democracy, and the interactions between technology, polling, voting, and outcomes. Including practical cases ranging from DMV registration to online tax filing and markers of successful implementation, [this book] addresses how the adoption and expansion of electronic platforms align with new government paradigms and looks to future trends in this rapidly expanding field."--

Legitimacy in peacebuilding : rethinking civil society involvement in peace negotiations
Zanker, Franzisca, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
The book offers a critical analysis of legitimacy in peacebuilding, with a focus on peace negotiations and civil society participation in particular. The aim of this book is to unpack the meaning of legitimacy for the population in peacebuilding processes and the relationship this has with civil society involvement. There is a growing consensus for addressing local concerns in peacebuilding, with the aim of ensuring local ownership. Moreover, scholars have noted a relationship between civil society inclusion in peace negotiations and legitimacy. Yet, the very idea of legitimacy remains a black box. Using data from original empirical fieldwork - including over 100 semi-structured interviews and 12 focus group discussions - the book focuses on two case studies of negotiations that, respectively, ended a long civil war in Liberia in 2003 and ended the post-election violence in Kenya in 2008. It argues that civil society involvement is conceptually insufficient to show a multidimensional understanding of legitimacy. Instead, the book shows a complex picture of legitimate peace negotiations, based on outcome and participation-based characteristics with the involvement of both ̀guarantors' of legitimacy and a more general civic agency which includes the general population. Through forms of participative communication, the passive audience become active stakeholders in the construction of legitimacy. This has repercussions for how we think about civil society and peacebuilding more generally. This book will be of much interest to students of peacebuilding, conflict resolution, security studies and IR in general.

"This multi-disciplinary collection interrogates the role of human rights in addressing past injustices. The volume draws on legal scholars, political scientists, anthropologists and political philosophers grappling with the weight of the memory of historical injustices arising from conflicts in Europe, the Middle East and Australasia. It examines the role of human rights as legal doctrine, rhetoric and policy as developed by states, international organizations, regional groups and non-governmental bodies. The authors question whether faith in human rights is justified as balm to heal past injustice or whether such faith nourishes both victimhood and self-justification. These issues are explored through three discrete sections: moments of memory and injustice, addressing injustice; and questions of faith. In each of these sections, authors address the manner in which memory of past conflicts and injustice haunt our contemporary understanding of human rights. The volume questions whether the expectation that human rights law can deal with past injustice has undermined the development of an emancipatory politics of human rights for our current world."--Provided by publisher.

Each chapter is linked to the rest through three defining themes that permeate the book: the 'global and the local' in the context of interventions; extending and broadening the definitions associated with interventions; and mapping the evolution of interventions over the last three decades.

Jean Bodin : 'this pre-eminent man of France' : an intellectual biography

Oxford ; Oxford University Press, 2017
Angers -- Educational pursuits -- Humanist engagements -- Law and history -- Getting and spending -- République -- Estates and demons -- "Propositum meum retardarunt" -- Vita contemplativa -- Coda: Colloquium -- Conclusion.

Jean Bodin was a figure of great importance in European intellectual history, known as a jurist, associate of kings and courtiers in sixteenth-century France, and author of influential works in the fields of constitutional and social thought, historical writing, witchcraft, and a great deal else besides. Best known for his contribution to formulating the modern doctrine of sovereignty, Bodin was a scholar of exceptional range, whose works provoked controversy in his own time and have continued to do so down the centuries. Hugh Trevor-Roper described him as 'the Aristotle, the Montesquieu of the sixteenth century, the prophet of comparative history, of political theory, of the philosophy of law, of the quantitative theory of money, and of so much else'.

EU foreign policy and Hamas : inconsistencies and paradoxes
Ziadeh, Adeeb, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Theorizing the EU foreign policy towards Hamas -- The formation of the EU foreign policy towards Palestine : contextual historical perspective -- Inconsistency of the EU discourse regarding Hamas : norms and values under investigation -- Resistance-terrorism debate in the EU-Hamas context : clash of visions -- The EU's perception of Israel as a self-driving determinant -- US influence on the EU regarding Hamas : analytical perspective.

Shortly after the overwhelming victory of Hamas in the 2006 parliamentary and municipal elections, civil war broke out in the Gaza Strip between members of the two factions, Hamas and Fatah. The EU, along with the US, UN and Russia, not only gave its support to Fatah against Hamas, but also imposed a tough siege on the Hamas government in an attempt to force it to accept the Quartet's political conditions, described by Hamas leaders as unfair and impossible. Many observers are convinced that the EU's behaviour in this matter has been unreasonable and has conflicted with the EU's own democratic beliefs and values. This book sheds light on the EU's policies in Palestine mainly from 2003- 2013, and provides a thorough examination of the inconsistencies and paradoxes in the EU discourse towards Hamas, and the determinants underlying such contradictions. It explores the reasons behind the EU labelling the Hamas a terrorist organization and discusses why the EU has boycotted its democratically elected body since 2006. Significantly, the book looks at whether the EU jeopardized its reputation and contravened its core normative values and objectives (democracy promotion, human rights, the rule of law and fundamental freedoms) by such a categorisation of Hamas. Exploring the EU's policy towards Hamas is vital for understanding how the relationship between the EU and the rest of the Islamists in the Middle East is perceived, as it enables both sides to have a cognitive basis upon which to construct better relations. This book, based upon a vast spread of primary EU documents and interviews, will therefore be a valuable resource for those studying the Arab Israeli conflict, Political Islamic movements, the Middle East Peace Process.

A new regime of power : Foucault -- Biopolitics as thanatopolitics : Agamben -- Totalitarianism and the political animal : Arendt -- Affirmative biopolitics : Negri and Esposito -- Politics : sovereignty, violence, rights -- Life : biology, technology, reproduction -- Subjectivity : persons, race, gender.

The concept of biopolitics has been one of the most important and widely used in recent years in disciplines across the humanities and social sciences. In Biopolitics, Mills provides a wide-ranging and insightful introduction to the field of biopolitical studies. The first part of the book provides a much-needed philosophical introduction to key theoretical approaches to the concept in contemporary usage. This includes discussions of the work of Michel Foucault, Giorgio Agamben, Hannah Arendt, Roberto Esposito, and Antonio Negri. In the second part of the book, Mills discusses various topics across the categories of politics, life, and subjectivity. These include questions of sovereignty and governmentality, violence, rights, technology, reproduction, race, and sexual difference. This book will be an indispensable guide for those wishing to gain an understanding of the central theories and issues in biopolitical studies. For those already working with the concepts of biopolitics, it provides challenging and provocative insights and argues for a ground-breaking reorientation of the field. -- from back cover.

Democratic political tragedy in the postcolony : the tragedy of postcoloniality in Michael Manley's Jamaica and Nelson Mandela's South Africa
Graham, Greg A., author
New York, NY : Routledge, 2018
"A ground-breaking work in Africana political thought that links the plight of progressive political endeavors in Africa with those in the Diaspora and beyond, Democratic Tragedy in the Postcolony engages with two of the defining political sagas of the postcolonial era. The book presents Michael Manley of Jamaica and Nelson Mandela of South Africa as tragic political leaders at the helm of popular democratic projects that run aground in the face of the constraints that a subordinate position in the global economy presents for such endeavors. Jamaica's experiment with democratic socialism as an alternative path to development at the height of the cold war is considered alongside post-Apartheid South Africa's search for a development model consistent with the demand for civic empowerment and equitable distribution of social goods in the aftermath of Apartheid. Democratic Political Tragedy in the Postcolony theorizes the defining tragic impasse and the telling vacillations by which the postcolonies in question are brought to the neoliberal catastrophes that currently prevail."--Publisher's summary.

When popular protests started in Tunisia in late 2010, few anticipated the implications these events would have for the entire Arab region. In the following years, this region witnessed deep changes, increased divisions, and even failing states. Meanwhile, Tunisia managed to assert itself as a new democracy. How did this small country manage its democratic transition within such a short period? And what implications has this had for its foreign policy and its role in international politics? This book assesses Tunisia's transition 'inside and out' from four angles: Tunisian polity and politics which provide the framework for its foreign policy since the 'Arab Spring'; bilateral relations before and after the 'Arab Spring'; Tunisia's activism in international organisations as well their presence in Tunisia; and transnational issues in Tunisia. Drawing on a broad range of primary sources, including authors' own interview material conducted with politicians and representatives of civil society and international NGOs involved in the transition process, the book shows that since 2011 Tunisia has not only developed fundamentally at the domestic level, but also at the level of external relations. New and old alliances, a broadening of relations, and new activism of civil society and of Tunisia in international organisations certify that Tunisia has the potential to play an increasingly important role regionally as well as internationally.

"This book uses a series of case studies to examine the roles played by universities during situations of conflict, peacebuilding and resistance. While a body of work dealing with the role of education in conflict does exist, this is almost entirely concerned with compulsory education and schooling. This book, in contrast, highlights and promotes the importance of higher education, and universities in particular, to situations of conflict, peacebuilding and resistance. Using case studies from Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, this volume considers institutional responses, academic responses and student responses, illustrating these in chapters written by those who have had direct experience of these issues. Looking at a university's tripartite functions (of research, teaching and service) in relation to the different phases or stages of conflict (pre conflict, violence, post conflict and peacebuilding), it draws together some of the key contributions a university might make to situations of instability, resistance and recovery. The book is organised in five sections that deal with conceptual issues, institutional responses, academic-led or discipline-specific responses, teaching or curriculum-led responses and student involvement. Aimed at those working in universities or concerned with conflict recovery and peacebuilding it highlights ways in which universities can be a valuable, if currently neglected, resource."--

State capacity, economic control, and authoritarian elections
Seeberg, Merete Bech, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2018
Although the phenomenon of authoritarian elections has been a focal point for the literature on authoritarian institutions for more than a decade, our understanding of the effect of authoritarian elections is still limited. Combining evidence from cross-national studies with studies on selected cases relying on recent field work, this book suggests a solution to the "paradox of authoritarian elections". Rather than focusing on authoritarian elections as a uniform phenomenon, it focuses on the differing conditions under which authoritarian elections occur. It demonstrates that the capacities available to authoritarian rulers shape the effect of elections and high levels of state capacity and control over the economy increase the probability that authoritarian multi-party elections will stabilize the regime. Where these capacities are limited, the regime is more likely to succumb in the face of elections. The findings imply that although multi-party competition and state strength may be important prerequisites for democracy, they can under some circumstances obstruct democratization by preventing the demise of dictatorships. This text will be of key interest to scholars, students and practitioners of democratization, and to those who study autocracy and electoral authoritarianism, as well as comparative politics more broadly.--

Ancient models in the early modern republican imagination
edited by Wyger Velema, Arthur Weststeijn
Leiden ; Brill, [2018]
Ancient Models in the Early Modern Republican Imagination', edited by Wyger Velema and Arthur Weststeijn, approaches the early modern republican political imagination from a fresh perspective. While most scholars agree on the importance of the classical world to early modern republican theorists, its role is all too often described in rather abstract and general terms such as "classical republicanism" or the "neo-roman theory of free states". The contributions to this volume propose a different approach and all focus on the specific ways in which ancient republics such as Rome, Athens, Sparta, and the Hebrew Republic served as models for early modern republican thought. The result is a novel interpretation of the impact of antiquity on early modern republicanism.

North Korea, Iran, and the challenge to international order : a comparative perspective
McEachern, Patrick, 1980- author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Illicit nuclear aspirants -- A comparative history -- Domestic politics, economy, and ideology -- Foreign and security policy and human rights -- Nonproliferation -- Conclusions and policy implications.

This book examines and compares the political situations in North Korea and Iran, and the contemporary security challenges posed by their illicit nuclear aspirations. While government officials, including a series of American presidents, strategic policy documents and outside analysts have repeatedly noted that North Korea and Iran occupy a similar challenge, the commonality has largely been left unexplored. This book argues that North Korea and Iran are uniquely common in the world today in their illicit nuclear aspirations in violation of their legal commitments made under the Non-Proliferation Treaty. The work evaluates alternative arguments, some of which sustain that the two states should be grouped together based on other metrics, such as nuclear powers that sponsor terrorist organizations or nuclear states that violate human rights, and find alternative explanations do not hold up to empirical scrutiny. Drawing on newly declassified documents and Iranian and North Korean sources, the book provides a comprehensive and comparative assessment of the two states' social, historical, economic, and domestic political structures and situation to make these determinations. Furthermore, it reviews the nuclear issue stemming from Iran and North Korea and the efforts to constrain these programs. The book concludes with specific policy recommendations that apply diplomatic lessons learned from dealing with Iran to North Korea and vice versa. This book will be of interest to students of nuclear proliferation, international security, foreign policy and International Relations.

The politics of borders : sovereignty, security, and the citizen after 9/11
Longo, Matthew, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Introduction -- Borders: thick and thin ; Part I: The Perimeter. The Wall and its shadow: security in the borderlands -- One border, two sovereigns? -- Co-bordering, cosmopolitanism and the specter of empire ; Part II: The Ports of Entry. The tiniest constable: big data, security and the Politics of Identification -- Sovereignty, security and the Politics of Trust -- Into the digital dark: data, the global firewall and the future of security.

Borders sit at the center of global politics. Yet they are too often understood as thin lines, as they appear on maps, rather than as political institutions in their own right. This book takes a detailed look at the evolution of border security in the United States after 9/11. Far from the walls and fences that dominate the news, it reveals borders to be thick, multi-faceted and binational institutions that have evolved greatly in recent decades. The book contributes to debates within political science on sovereignty, citizenship, cosmopolitanism, human rights and global justice. In particular, the new politics of borders reveal a sovereignty that is not waning, but changing, expanding beyond the state carapace and engaging certain logics of empire. --

Evaluating American democracy and public policymaking

"Lurking in the back of the minds of many students of American government is the question, "How well does the American political system work?" This book examines this in a way that is broad in approach and accessible to readers. Such an ambitious examination of the effectiveness of the American policymaking system leads to one inescapable question: how can you measure "effectiveness?" The answer taken in this book is to employ a number of different criteria. These criteria include: the public's attitudes towards the institutions of government the degree in which all participate equally in political activities the level of which public policy is responsive to public opinion the ability of the actors in the process to create effective public policy the extent the political system imposes costs and benefits on us equally, regardless of our economic condition race, gender, or age. In doing so, this book ties together and expands upon numerous scholarly studies conducted on American public policymaking and uses David Truman's Systems Model as a conceptual guide. Because of the large amount of data presented, the book will also serve as a reference source for others conducting research on American public policy"--

Migration, religion, and schooling in liberal democratic states
Collet, Bruce A., author
New York : Routledge, 2018
"Speaking to an increasingly fluid world involving the migration of peoples and cultures, the global resilience of religion, and the role of schooling in fostering liberal democratic values, this book investigates the degree to which secular public schools might facilitate religious migrants' societal integration. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach which draws from political philosophy, the philosophy of education, and the sociology of religion, Collet argues that public schools in liberal democratic states can best facilitate the pluralistic integration of religious migrant students through adopting policies of recognition and accommodation that are not only reasonable in the light of liberal democratic principles, but also informed in terms of what we understand regarding the natural role religion often plays in acculturation."--Provided by publisher.

A letter to my children.

Jorge Ramos, an Emmy award-winning journalist, Univision's longtime anchorman and widely considered the "voice of the voiceless" within the Latino community, was forcefully removed from an Iowa press conference in 2015 by then-candidate Donald Trump after trying to ask about his plans on immigration. In this personal manifesto, Ramos sets out to examine what it means to be a Latino immigrant, or just an immigrant, in present-day America. Using current research and statistics, with a journalist's nose for a story, and interweaving his own personal experience, Ramos shows us the changing face of America while also trying to find an explanation for why he, and millions of others, still feel like strangers in this country.

Italy from Crisis to Crisis seeks to understand Italy's approach to crises by studying the country in regional, international, and comparative context. Without assuming that the country is abnormal or unusually crisis-prone, the authors treat Italy as an example from which other countries might learn. The book integrates the analysis of domestic politics and foreign policy, including Italy's approach to military interventions, energy security, economic relations with the European Union (EU), and to the NATO alliance, and covers a number of issues that normally receive little attention in studies of "high politics," such as information policy, national identity, immigration, youth unemployment, and family relations. Finally, it puts Italy in a comparative perspective - with other European states, naturally - but also with Latin America, and even the United States, all countries that have experienced similar crises to Italy's and similar - often populist - responses. This text will be of key interest to scholars and students of, and courses on, Italian politics and history, European politics and, more broadly, comparative politics and democracy.--

Democracy beyond the nation state : practicing equality
Parker, Joseph D., 1956- author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
Democracy promises rule by all, not by the few. Yet, electoral democracies limit decision-making to representatives and have always had a weakness for inequality. How might democracy serve all rather than the few? Democracy Beyond the Nation State: Practicing Equality examines communities that govern their own lives without elites or centralized structures through assemblies and consensus. Rather than claiming equality by abstract rights or citizenship, these groups put equality into practice by reducing wealth and health divides, or landlessness or homelessness, and equalizing workloads. These practices are found in rural India and Brazil, in Buenos Aires, London, and New York, and among the Iroquois, the Zapatistas, and the global networks of La Via Campesina farmers and the World Social Forum. Readable accounts of these horizontal democracies document multiple political frames that prevent democracy from being frozen into entrenched electoral systems producing modern inequalities. Using practice to rewrite political theory, Parker draws on collective politics in Spivak and Derrida and embodied relations from Povinelli and Foucault to show that equal relations are not a utopian dream, not nostalgia, and not impossible. This book provides many practical solutions to inequality. It will be useful to students and scholars of political theory and social movements and to those who are willing to work together for equality. --

The long century between 1750 and 1880 was a transformative period in global history. During this time, a world of connected, but essentially still separated large regions, gave way to a globally integrated world. Ever since, different parts of the world were linked not through trade and war alone. Cultural developments, political reform and social change were increasingly entangled across continents and cultures. Emerging Modernity, the fourth volume of the 6-volume series A History of the World, charts this transformative period. How did the modern world economy emerge? Why did industrialization begin in England and not in China, and were there origins of capitalist development outside of the West? What were the roles of slaves and of nomads in this integrating world? Was there a bourgeoisie outside of Euro-America? To what extent did the large empires keep the rise of nation-states in check? Was the emergence of the "Muslim world" an effect of globalization? Such issues are at the center of the four large, thematically organized chapters of the present volume.--

Local politics in Jordan and Morocco : strategies of centralization and decentralization
Clark, Janine A., author
New York : Columbia University Press, [2018]
Introduction -- Coalition building and the social relations that support authoritarian regimes -- Centralization and "decentralization" in Jordan -- Decentralization, co-optation, and regime legitimation in Morocco -- The destabilizing effects of centralization -- Elite capture and regime stabilization in Morocco -- Morocco's opposition party, the PJD -- Conclusion.

As authoritarian states in the MENA region are under increasing international pressure to decentralize political power, Janine A. Clark examines why Morocco initiated a process of decentralization as early as the 1970s while Jordan did not and the impact of their divergent paths. According to the World Bank, political decentralization promises greater democracy and better and more equitable services via the inclusion of civil society actors in municipal decision-making. Clark challenges this and questions: why authoritarian regimes choose to decentralize or not; how municipal actors respond to decentralization reforms; and the extent to which decentralization, as opposed to centralization, stabilizes authoritarian regimes. Based on extensive fieldwork in the two countries, Clark argues that decentralization is a tactic authoritarian regimes use when they seek to expand their societal base of support. She furthermore reveals that municipal actors similarly use decentralization reforms to their advantage. Morocco's decentralization reforms offer regime-supportive municipal actors opportunities to enhance their patron-client ties at the expense of civil society actors. Consequently, decentralization generally has not resulted in greater political inclusivity or improved services but in the entrenchment of pro-regime elites in power. The main Islamist political party also has been able to take advantage of decentralization reforms. Precisely by fulfilling the spirit of the reforms, Islamists have been able to displace pro-regime elites and gain municipal power in partnership with civil society actors. In the end, however, Clark argues, despite some municipal success stories, decentralization reforms consolidate the power of and stabilizes authoritarian regimes.

A history of human rights society in Singapore, 1965-2015

"Singapore is known for its remarkable economic success while its strict laws on freedom of speech, drugs, vandalism, homosexuality and public protest have been legitimised in the name of maintaining public order, racial harmony and internal security for this success. Lee Kuan Yew's 'Asian values' are widely discussed as a key touchstone for debates on universalism and cultural relativism. Singapore's official position on human rights has very clearly established that national security and public order are prioritized over the full realisation of human rights, within Article 29 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Singapore's tough stance on human rights, however, does not negate the long and persistent existence of a human rights society that exists almost unknown to the world. The focus of this book is on independent activists and writers, documenting this tradition in Singapore society that has a legacy of defending universal values of individual human rights. It uncovers their discourses, main contentions, campaigns, survival strategies, prominent activists and their untold stories during Singapore's first 50 years of independence"--

A brotherhood of spies : the U-2 and the CIA's secret war

Icarus soaring -- In plain sight -- Rocket men -- To the sun -- Part three. Icarus falling -- Fallen angel -- Secrets and lies -- The verdict -- New frontiers -- Book four. Icarus reborn -- Trade-offs -- Together and apart -- Endgame -- Epilogue: Landings.

On May 1, 1960, an American U-2 spy plane was shot down over the Soviet Union just weeks before a peace summit between the two nations. The CIA concocted a cover story for President Eisenhower to deliver, assuring him that no one could have survived a fall from that altitude. And even if pilot Francis Gary Powers had survived, he had been supplied with a poison pin with which to commit suicide. But against all odds, Powers emerged from the wreckage and was seized by the KGB. He confessed to espionage charges, revealing to the world that Eisenhower had just lied to the American people--and to the Soviet Premier. Infuriated, Nikita Khrushchev slammed the door on a rare opening in Cold War relations. In A Brotherhood of Spies, award-winning journalist Monte Reel reveals how the U-2 spy program, principally devised by four men working in secret, upended the Cold War and carved a new mission for the CIA. This secret fraternity, made up of Edwin Land, best known as the inventor of instant photography and the head of Polaroid Corporation; Kelly Johnson, a hard-charging taskmaster from Lockheed; Richard Bissell, the secretive and ambitious spymaster; and ace Air Force flyer Powers, set out to replace yesterday's fallible human spies with tomorrow's undetectable eye in the sky. Their clandestine successes and all-too-public failures make this brilliantly reported account a true-life thriller with the highest stakes and tragic repercussions.

America's political inventors : the lost art of legislation
Liebmann, George W., author
London ; I. B. Tauris, 2018
Recent American political developments, including the election of Donald Trump, reveal profound disquiet with the highly centralized political regime based on discretionary allocation of funds and powers to interest groups that has developed since the creation of emergency institutions after America's entry into World War I. This book demonstrates the effectiveness in American history of measures conceived in a different spirit, addressing the population at large, rather than particular interest groups, relying on citizen and local initiative, and founded not on the distribution of frequently unearned benefits and powers but on reciprocal contributions and obligations. George W. Liebmann discusses John Winthrop and his foundation of New England towns; John Locke and the creation of Southern plantations; Thomas Jefferson and his scheme for the organization of Northwestern townships and American territories and states; Joseph Pulitzer and the origins of municipal home rule; John Wesley Powell and the creation of reclamation districts; Hugh Hammond Bennett and the fostering of soil conservation districts; and Byron Hanke and the development of residential community associations. The book concludes with a number of public policy proposals relating to housing, urban renewal, care of the elderly, immigration and youth unemployment conceived in the same spirit. Liebmann brings to light little-known facts concerning the growth of practices and institutions that Americans take for granted. His book will be of interest to students of biography, history and government.

Counter-revolution : liberal Europe in retreat
Zielonka, Jan, 1955- author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2018
From revolution to counter-revolution -- Why they hate liberals -- Democratic malaise -- Socialism for the rich -- Geopolitics of fear -- Barbarians at the gate -- The rise and fall of the EU -- Peering into the future.

Can open society survive? Is Europe disintegrating? How to overcome the economic crisis? Will Europeans feel secure again? Counter Revolution is a bold attempt to make sense of the extraordinary events taking place in Europe today. It examines the counter-revolution developing in Europe, exploring its roots and implications. The book takes the form of a series of heartfelt letters to the late European guru Ralf Dahrendorf. Several months after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Dahrendorf wrote a book fashioned on Edmund Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France. Like Burke, he chose to put his analysis in the form of a letter, reflecting on the implications of the turbulent period around 1989. Thirty years' later, and faced with an equally turbulent period, Jan Zielonka asks: what next? This is not a book on populism, however: it is a book about liberalism. Populism has become a favourite topic within liberal circles and few have exposed populist deceptions and dangers better than liberal writers. Yet, liberals have shown themselves better at finger-pointing than at self-reflection. This book addresses the imbalance; it is a self-critical book by a life-time liberal. Counter-Revolution suggests that Europe and its liberal project need to be reinvented and recreated. There is no simple way back. Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel will not produce wonders. Europe failed to adjust to enormous geopolitical, economic, and technological changes that swept the continent over the past three decades. European models of democracy, capitalism, and integration are not in sync with new complex networks of cities, bankers, terrorists, or migrants. Liberal values that made Europe thrive for many decades have been betrayed. The escalation of emotions, myths, and ordinary lies left little space for reason, deliberation, and conciliation. This book examines these different aspects, proposing a way out of the labyrinth.--

Colonial exchanges : political theory and the agency of the colonized
edited by Burke A. Hendrix and Deborah Baumgold
[Manchester] : Manchester University Press, [2017]
Recent scholarship in political thought has closely examined the relationship between European political ideas and colonialism, particularly the ways in which canonical thinkers supported or opposed colonial practices. But little attention has been given to the engagement of colonized political and intellectual actors with European ideas. The essays in this volume demonstrate that a full reckoning of colonialism's effects requires attention to the ways in which colonized intellectuals reacted to, adopted, and transformed these ideas, and to the political projects that their reactions helped to shape.--

Guardians of the Arab state : when militaries intervene in politics, from Iraq to Mauritania
Gaub, Florence, author
London : Hurst & Company, 2017
Guardians of the Arab state' explains clearly and concisely how and why military organisations become involved in politics across the Middle East and North Africa, identifying four key factors: a high degree of organisational capacity, clear institutional interest, a forgiving population and weak civilian control. Looking at numerous case studies ranging from Mauritania to Iraq, the book finds that these factors are common to all Arab countries to have experienced coups in the last century. It also finds that the opposite is true in cases like Jordan, where strong civilian control and the absence of capacity, interest, or a positive public image made coup attempts futile. Gaub also convincingly argues that the reasons are structural rather than cultural, thereby proving a counter-narrative to conventional explanations which look at Arab coups along religious or historical lines. In essence, the questions addressed herein lead back to issues of weak statehood, legitimacy, and resource constraints -- all problems the Arab world has struggled with since independence.0'Guardians of the Arab state' picks up where previous literature on Middle Eastern military forces dropped the debate, and provides an updated and insightful.

Trevor Thrall.

This book challenges the dominant strategic culture and makes the case for restraint in US grand strategy in the 21st century. Grand strategy, meaning a state's theory about how it can achieve national security for itself, is elusive. That is particularly true in the United States, where the division of federal power and the lack of direct security threats limit consensus about how to manage danger. This book seeks to spur more vigorous debate on US grand strategy. To do so, the first half of the volume assembles the most recent academic critiques of primacy, the dominant strategic perspective in the United States today. The contributors challenge the notion that US national security requires a massive military, huge defense spending, and frequent military intervention around the world. The second half of the volume makes the positive case for a more restrained foreign policy by excavating the historical roots of restraint in the United States and illustrating how restraint might work in practice in the Middle East and elsewhere. The volume concludes with assessments of the political viability of foreign policy restraint in the United States today. This book will be of much interest to students of US foreign policy, grand strategy, national security, and International Relations in general.

Revolutionary passions : Latin America, Middle-East and India
Bozarslan, Hamit, author
London : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
"Europe has been the chief arena of revolutionary passions since the end of the eighteenth century. During this same period, and right up to the beginning of the twenty-first century, the non-European world, too, has resonated with coup attempts and revolutionary turmoil. How does one begin to understand these revolutionary passions? To what extent are they influenced by European matrices? Have these revolutions also themselves resulted in 'exportable models'? Three French writers look at three continents--Latin America, the Middle East and India and interrogate the revolution, with reference to and dialogue with the definitive work of Francois Furet, who wrote The Passing of an Illusion: The Idea of Communism in the Twentieth Century. Interestingly, the original French book Passions révolutionnaires was written in 1995, just after the fall of the Berlin wall. Whether nationalist, religious, proletarian, international, anti-colonial or simply liberty and equality, whether violent or fought passively, the Revolution as a concept and a fact, whether past, present or future, remains a critical reference point for our societies.

Face-to-face diplomacy : social neuroscience and international relations
Holmes, Marcus, author
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2018
The puzzle of face-to-face diplomacy -- Face value: the problem of intentions and social neuroscience -- Reassurance at the end of the Cold War: Gorbachev and Reagan face-to-face -- Unification and distribution after the wall falls: a flurry of face-to-face -- Overcoming distrust at Camp David -- "Munich" -- Escaping uncertainty.

Face-to-face diplomacy has long been the linchpin of world politics, yet it is largely dismissed by scholars of International Relations as unimportant. Marcus Holmes argues that dismissing this type of diplomacy is in stark contrast to what leaders and policy makers deem as essential and that this view is rooted in a particular set of assumptions that see an individual's intentions as fundamentally inaccessible. Building on recent evidence from social neuroscience and psychology, Holmes argues that this assumption is problematic. Marcus Holmes studies some of the most important moments of diplomacy in the twentieth century, from 'Munich' to the end of the Cold War, and by showing how face-to-face interactions allowed leaders to either reassure each other of benign defensive intentions or pick up on offensive intentions, his book challenges the notion that intentions are fundamentally unknowable in international politics, a central idea in IR theory.

End of an era : how China's authoritarian revival is undermining its rise
Minzner, Carl, author
New York, NY, United States of America : Oxford University Press, [2018]
"China's reform era is ending. Core factors that characterized it-political stability, ideological openness, and rapid economic growth-are unraveling. Since the 1990s, Beijing's leaders have firmly rejected any fundamental reform of their authoritarian one-party political system, even as a decades-long boom has reshaped China's economy and society. On the surface, their efforts have been a success. Political turmoil has toppled former Communist East bloc regimes, internal unrest overtaken Middle East nations, and populist movements risen to challenge established Western democracies. China, in contrast, has appeared a relative haven of stability and growth. But as [the author] shows, a closer look at China's reform era reveals a different truth. Over the past three decades, a frozen political system has fueled both the rise of entrenched interests within the Communist Party itself, and the systematic underdevelopment of institutions of governance among state and society at large. Economic cleavages have widened. Social unrest has worsened. Ideological polarization has deepened. Now, to address these looming problems, China's leaders are progressively cannibalizing institutional norms and practices that have formed the bedrock of the regime's stability in the reform era. Technocratic rule is giving way to black-box purges; collective governance sliding back towards single-man rule. The post-1978 era of 'reform and opening up' is ending. China is closing down. Uncertainty hangs in the air as a new future slouches towards Beijing to be born. End of an Era explains how China arrived at this dangerous turning point, and outlines the potential outcomes that could result."--

Civil disobedience
Scheuerman, William E., 1965- author
Cambridge, UK ; Polity Press, 2018
Introduction -- Divine witness -- Liberalism and its limits -- Deepening democracy -- Anarchist uprising -- Postnationalization and privatization -- Digitalization -- Tilting at windmills? -- Conclusion.

"What is civil disobedience? Although Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King helped bring the idea to prominence, even today it remains unclear how we should best understand civil disobedience. Why have so many different activists and intellectuals embraced it, and to what ends? Is civil disobedience still politically relevant in today's hyper-connected world? Does it make sense, for example, to describe Edward Snowden's actions, or those of recent global movements like Occupy, as falling under this rubric? If so, how must it adapt to respond to the challenges of digitalization and globalization and the rise of populist authoritarianism in the West? In this persuasively written text, William E. Scheuerman systematically analyzes the most important interpretations of civil disobedience. Drawing out the striking differences separating religious, liberal, democratic, and anarchist views, he nonetheless shows that core commonalities remain. Against those who water down the idea of civil disobedience or view it as obsolescent, Scheuerman successfully salvages its central elements. The concept of civil disobedience, he argues, remains a pivotal tool for anyone hoping to bring about political and social change."--Page 4 of cover.

A global political economy of democratisation : beyond the internal-external divide
Ayers, Alison J., author
Abingdon, Oxon : Routledge, 2018
The late-twentieth century is often portrayed as an 'Age of Democratisation', with democracy heralded as the best of all political systems. Yet democracy has multiple meanings, values and significances. The start of the twenty-first century has witnessed a massive revival of interest in the meaning and role of democracy, not least as democracy understood in one highly particular sense has been increasingly recognised to be in crisis. This book presents these deliberations in a new light by moving beyond the concept of the sovereign state as the dominant framework of enquiry and by rejecting the primacy of the state and the categorical separation of the 'domestic' and the 'international'. Instead, Ayers elaborates an account of democratisation through the global political economy, encompassing a trenchant critique of mainstream democracy promotion in theory and practice, and opening-up possibilities for different histories of democratisation autonomous of the Western liberal and neoliberal project. This innovative work will prove useful to scholars and students in the fields of Politics, Political Economy, International Relations, Development, African Studies, History, Geography and Sociology.--

Although the Cold War came to an end more than a quarter century ago, the United States and the Russian Federation still deem it essential to their national interests to maintain nuclear arsenals capable of crippling global human civilization. Several other countries maintain significant nuclear capabilities. As much as we shrink from acknowledging it, the fact remains that the current international status quo is dangerously unstable. Yet there are no proposals being considered at the present time that are sufficiently bold to make a significant difference, and yet sufficiently sensible to command respect. Evolutionary World Government breaks free of the conventional preconceptions that are hobbling the human imagination at this critical moment in our history. The book describes and evaluates a comprehensive, fully innovative plan for improving the prospects of global human civilization as we confront an uncertain future. The economic aspect of the plan is the initiation of a worldwide economic development effort tentatively designated the Global Marshall Plan, while the political aspect of the plan is the foundation of a limited federal world government tentatively designated the Federal Union of Democratic Nations. The key element underlying this pragmatic approach to international harmonization is the discarding of the traditional world federalist ideal of the "omnipotent world state," and its replacement with the objective of a properly limited federal world government that would allow the free departure of member nations from the federation, and would also permit member nations to exercise independent control over their own military forces. In the long run, these reserved national rights would become irrelevant reminders of the distant past, but in the short run they are vital to the initial formation of a global federation that would eventually, through gradual evolutionary processes, become a highly authoritative - yet fully democratic and benign - world government.--

Rooted cosmopolitans : Jews and human rights in the twentieth century
Loeffler, James Benjamin, author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2018]
"A stunningly original look at the forgotten Jewish political roots of contemporary international human rights, told through the moving stories of five key activists The year 2018 marks the seventieth anniversary of two momentous events in twentieth-century history: the birth of the State of Israel and the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Both remained tied together in the ongoing debates about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Yet the surprising connections between Zionism and the origins of international human rights are completely unknown today. In this riveting account, James Loeffler explores this controversial history through the stories of five remarkable Jewish founders of international human rights, following them from the prewar shtetls of eastern Europe to the postwar United Nations, a journey that includes the Nuremberg and Eichmann trials, the founding of Amnesty International, and the UN resolution of 1975 labeling Zionism as racism. The result is a book that challenges long-held assumptions about the history of human rights and offers a startlingly new perspective on the roots of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict." --

The remnants of the Rechtsstaat : an ethnography of Nazi law
Meierhenrich, Jens, author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, [2018]
The idea of lawlessness -- Behemoth and beyond -- The making of a cause lawyer -- Mr. von Mohl's Term of art : a history of the Rechtsstaat, 1798-1933 -- The debate about the Rechtsstaat in Nazi Germany, 1933-1936 -- An ethnography of Nazi law : the gestation of The dual state, 1936-1941 -- "A rational core within an irrational shell" : an institutional theory of dictatorship -- The decline of a classic : explaining the reception of The dual state, 1941-present -- Authoritarian rule of law.

This book is an intellectual history of Ernst Fraenkel's The Dual State (1941, reissued 2017), one of the most erudite books on the theory of dictatorship ever written. Fraenkel's was the first comprehensive analysis of the rise and nature of Nazism, and the only such analysis written from within Hitler's Germany. His sophisticated-not to mention courageous-analysis amounted to an ethnography of Nazi law. As a result of its clandestine origins, The Dual State has been hailed as the ultimate piece of intellectual resistance to the Nazi regime. In this book, Jens Meierhenrich revives Fraenkel's innovative concept of "the dual state," restoring it to its rightful place in the annals of public law scholarship. Blending insights from legal theory and legal history, he tells in an accessible manner the remarkable gestation of Fraenkel's ethnography of law from inside the belly of the behemoth. In addition to questioning the conventional wisdom about the law of the Third Reich, Meierhenrich explores the legal origins of dictatorship elsewhere, then and now. The book sets the parameters for a theory of the "authoritarian rule of law," a cutting edge topic in law and society scholarship with immediate policy implications.

"It is a conversation about how countries around the world vary in their migration demographic outcomes. It is a conversation about which countries' profiles are similar and which are exceptional. It is a conversation about what drives immigration regimes and demographic trends across these different countries. And ultimately, it is a conversation that we--as immigration researchers--wanted to have with each other, but found impossible given the current state of the field"--

Images from paradise : the visual communication of the European Union's federalist utopia
Salgó, Eszter, author
New York : Berghahn Books, 2017
Need for a paradise dream -- Manifestations of Eurofederalists' paradise dream -- The tale of seductive Europa -- Welcome to the center of the European mandala! -- Europa's sacred gaze -- The European Central Bank's story of abundance: in between sacred rituals and political marketing -- The promise of European rituals -- "Rise like a phoenix": a new anthem for (federal) Europe -- The 2014 elections of the European Parliament: preparing for a European carnival.

Drawing upon the disciplines of politics, anthropology, psychoanalysis, aesthetics and cinema studies, Salgo presents a new way of looking at the "art of European unification" and to highlight the mythical sources of the federalist project. The visual narratives constitute the main object of inquiry - the iconography of the new "Europa" series of euro banknotes and the videos launched by the European Commission, the European Parliament and by the European Central Bank, through which the supranational elite seek to generate "collective effervescence," allow for a European carnival to take place, and prompt citizens to pledge allegiance to the sacred dogma of the "ever closer union," thereby strengthening the organization's legitimacy.

Exclusion by elections : inequality, ethnic identity, and democracy
Huber, John D., author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, [2017]
"[This book] develops a theory about the circumstances under which 'class identities' as opposed to 'ethnic identities' become salient in democratic politics, and links this theory to issues of inequality and government efforts to redress the balance. The book argues that in societies with even modest levels of ethnic diversity, inequality invites ethnic politics, and ethnic politics results in less redistribution than class politics. Thus, contrary to workhorse theoretical models of redistribution in social science, where inequality should be related to more redistribution, the argument here is that inequality often makes it more difficult for democracies to adopt policies that redress inequality. Instead, incentives in electoral competition can lead to a situation where inequality becomes reinforced by inequality itself. The author explores the argument empirically by examining cross-national patterns of voting behaviour, redistribution and democratic transitions."--
