Montesquieu's liberalism and the problem of universal politics
Callanan, Keegan, 1981-
Cambridge ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Introduction -- Montesquieu and classical particularism -- Montesquieu and humanist constitutionalism -- Regime pluralism -- Understanding liberal culture -- Religion, secularism, and liberal society -- The spirit of tolerance and gentleness -- Political change and the psychology of liberty -- Conclusion.

Dubbed 'the oracle' by no less an authority than James Madison, Montesquieu stands as a theoretical founder of the liberal political tradition. But equally central to his project was his account of the relationship of law to each nation's particular customs and place, a teaching that militates against universal political solutions. This teaching has sometimes been thought to stand in tension with his liberal constitutionalism. In this book, Keegan Callanan argues that Montesquieu's political particularism and liberalism are complementary and mutually reinforcing parts of a coherent whole. In developing this argument, Callanan considers Montesquieu's regime pluralism, psychological conception of liberty, approach to political reform, and account of 'the customs of a free people', including the complex interaction of religion and commerce. Callanan concludes that, by re-orienting our understanding of liberalism and redirecting our attention toward liberty's distinctive preconditions, a return to Montesquieu's political philosophy leaves us better prepared to confront liberal democracy's contested claim to universality.

The perpetual immigrant and the limits of Athenian democracy
Kasimis, Demetra, 1980- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Machine generated contents note: Part I. Autochthony Trouble: 1. The metic in and out of theory; 2. Immigrant passing in Euripides' Ion, the tragedy of blood-based membership; Part II. A Metric Republic in Three Acts: 3. The Republic as a metic space; 4. Plato's open decret; 5. Of mimesis and metic: a reading of democracy in Book VIII; Part III. Evading Detection: 6. Citizen passing in Demosthenes 57: the oration of Athenian blood; Conclusion: political theory from the edges of Athenian democracy; Appendix. A metic timeline.

"In the fifth and fourth centuries BCE, immigrants called 'metics' (metoikoi) settled in Athens without a path to citizenship. Galvanized by these political realities, classical thinkers cast a critical eye on the nativism defining democracy's membership rules and explored the city's anxieties over intermingling and passing. Yet readers continue to treat immigration and citizenship as separate phenomena of little interest to theorists writing at the time. In The Perpetual Immigrant and the Limits of Athenian Democracy, Demetra Kasimis makes visible the long-overlooked centrality of immigration to the originary practices of democracy and political theory in Athens. She dismantles the interpretive and political assumptions that have led readers to turn away from the metic and reveals the key role this figure plays in such texts as Plato's Republic. The result is a series of original readings that boldly reframes urgent questions about how democracies order their non-citizen members"--

The Cambridge handbook of classical liberal thought

The rise, fall, and renaissance of classical liberalism / Ralph Raico -- Back the future : new classical liberalism and old social justice / Jason Brennan -- More and better : resources defined through property and exchange / Art Carden -- The boundaries of antidiscrimination laws / David E. Bernstein -- Environmental protection : final frontier or Achilles heel? / Jonathon H. Adler -- I, pencil / Leonard E.

Manne -- Classical liberalism, race and mass incarceration / Aziz Huq -- Seven problems for classical liberals / Louis Michael Seidman -- Meeting the fundamental objections to classical liberalism / Richard A. Epstein.

"This book arises out of a symposium on classical-liberal thought at the University of Chicago Law School in 2015. The Law School aspires to two precepts in its pursuit of truth: the value of interdisciplinary inquiry and the importance of diverse voices being heard. Applying these, the Ordower Symposium (named after our distinguished alumnus and benefactor Mark Ordower) featured scholars of law, economics, and philosophy. In addition, the attendees were not all classical liberals--sympathetic voices, hostile voices, and agnostic voices were all heard during the two-day event. Those voices are represented in this volume. In the pages that follow, you will find the views of classical liberal stalwarts like Richard Epstein, progressives like Michael Seidman, and everything in between. The book also features a range of styles and modes of inquiry, from law to economics to philosophy. On behalf of the participants in the symposium and the contributors to this book, we hope you learn from this work as much as we did from engaging with each other about fundamental questions regarding the proper role and nature of government in our society"--

Democracy and the cartelization of political parties
Katz, Richard S., author
Oxford : Oxford University Press; 2018
Political parties have long been recognized as essential institutions of democratic governance. Both the organization of parties, and their relationships with citizens, the state, and each other have evolved since the rise of liberal democracy in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Going into the 21st century, it appears that parties losing popular support, putting both parties, and potentially democracy, in peril. This book traces the evolution of parties from the model of the mass party, through the catch-all party model, to argue that by the late 20th century the principal governing parties and (and their allied smaller parties - collectively the political 'mainstream') were effectively forming a cartel, in which the form of competition might remain, and indeed even appear to intensify, while its substance was increasingly hollowed out. The spoils of office were increasingly shared rather than restricted to the temporary winners; contentious policy questions were kept off the political agenda, and competition shifted from large questions of policy to minor questions of managerial competence. To support this cartel, the internal arrangements of parties changed to privilege the party in public office over the party on the ground. The unintended consequence has been to stimulate the rise of extra-cartel challengers to these cozy arrangements in the form of anti-party-system parties and populist oppositions on the left, but especially on the right.

El fusilamiento de la decencia : memorias de un venezolano de la democracia
Carrillo de León, Manuel, author
[Caracas] : Rayuela Taller de Ediciones, 2017
Larga noche de 17 años -- Emergencia reaccionaria -- Fin de la utopía bastarda -- Recuerdos de un país amable.

Desde muy joven, Manuel Carrillo estuvo ligado al acontecer politico. Primero en las luchas estudiantiles y luego como funcionario en las empresas del Estado. Ocupa un especial espacio su trabajo en SIDOR, CVG y Ferrominera Orinoco, entre otras y aün hoy se define con orgullo como sidorista. Sus memorias son las de alguien ligado a la praxis, al hacer, al emprender para construir, para dejar constancia con hechos que modifiquen para bien la Vida de la gente. Por eso vivió en Guayana para ayudar a construir ese gran polo de dinamismo y energia que fue ejemplo americano, y que 10 marcó mineralmente. Carillo rememora al país amable que una vez se tuvo, lleno de oportunidades; la emergencia reaccionaria que acabo la democracia y entrego al país en bandeja de plata al socialismo del siglo XXI para que instaurara la larga noche de 18 años que todavía oscurece el destino de la republica. Su recuento de la mengua y desolación producida por la incapacidad de la burocracia gobernante roja es dolorosamente agudo. Dos personajes que ayudaron a forjar la democracia venezolana, hoy ausentes ocupan un espacio especial en las reminiscencias mas entrañables del autor: el Dr. Ramón J. Velásquez y el Ing. Leopoldo Sucre Figarella, entre tantos otros que nos sorprenden al pasar una pagina o tras un punto y aparte anunciado. Velásquez, fue uno de los pensadores políticos, además de historiador mas brillantes del país y ex presidente de la Republica en un momento crucial, tras la deposición de Carlos Andrés Pérez y Sucre Figarella, el Zar de Guayana así llamado, con un cierto temor reverencial por quienes lo ayudaron a construir Venezuela. Ambos simbolizan la voluntad de servicio publico que alguna una vez primero en nuestro país. ¿Por que esta obra? dejemos que sea el autor quien responda la pregunta: La meta de este libro, de ligera lectura, es que pueda transmitir de manera útil, primero algo de cultura general y luego cosas vividas... que si no se releen se olvidan, y también recordar como éramos antes del terremoto revolucionario que nos secuestro un bello país, y su democracia, con sus defectos y virtudes, como todo.

Close to home : local ties and voting radical right in Europe
Fitzgerald, Jennifer, 1972- author
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Electoral disorder, social change : an introduction -- Theorizing localism and radical right support -- Localism and radical right support in Europe -- Who are the localists that support the radical right? -- Neighborly ties, local autonomy, and SVP support in Switzerland -- Local autonomy shifts, local cohesion, and Le Pen support in France -- Local political salience and radical right party success in OECD countries -- Place, change, status and politics : concluding considerations.

"Elections in advanced democracies have become increasingly unpredictable in recent years. New political elites and former pariah parties are gaining popularity while traditional, mainstream parties and leaders lose support. Perhaps most notably, Europe is in the midst of its most tumultuous electoral era since the inter-war years. Unconventional parties with leftist, rightist, and ideologically ambiguous platforms attract voters in political contests across the continent. Vote shares of Europe's establishment parties such as left-leaning Social Democrats and right-leaning Christian Democrats are in precipitous decline in many countries. Election campaigns are increasingly confrontational, suggesting that the post-war commitment to political consensus among political parties has weakened. As challenger parties grow in popularity, they stand to further transform the nature of political competition and policy making. They also stand to alter political systems for decades to come as young generations enter a very different political environment than the one that ushered their elders into democratic citizenship"--

Ideology and identity : the changing party systems of India
Chhibber, Pradeep K., 1956- author
New York, NY, United States of America : Oxford University Press, 2018
State formation and ideological conflict in multiethnic countries -- The 2014 elections and the ideological divide in Indian politics -- Intellectual lineages of the politics of statism and recognition -- Who opposes reservations and why? -- You don't say no to Lakshmi : the myth of vote buying in India -- Transformational leaders and ideological shifts -- Transmitting ideology -- Statism, recognition, and the party system change in India -- Ideological challenges and the decline of the Congress Party -- The BJP and an ideological consolidation of the right?

Indian party politics, commonly viewed as chaotic, clientelistic, and corrupt, is nevertheless a model for deepening democracy and accommodating diversity. But if these perspectives are contradictory, they do have one thing in common: the perception of Indian politics as non-ideological in nature. In Ideology and Identity, Pradeep K. Chhibber and Rahul Verma argue that the Western European paradigm of what constitutes an ideology is not entirely applicable to many multiethnic countries in the twentieth century. In these more diverse states, the most important ideological debates center on statism-or the extent to which the state should dominate society, regulate social norms, redistribute private property, and accommodate the needs of various marginalized groups. Using survey data from the Indian National Election Studies (NES) and other studies along with evidence drawn from the Constituent Assembly debates, this book shows how education, the media, and religious practice transmit the competing ideas that lie at the heart of the ideological debates in India.

The rise of nerd politics : digital activism and political change
Postill, John, 1965-
London : Pluto Press, 2018
Hiding in plain sight -- Nerds of a feather -- Data activism -- Digital rights -- Social protest -- Formal politics -- A thriving social world.

The irruption of WikiLeaks, Anonymous, Edward Snowden and other tech-savvy actors onto the global political stage raises urgent questions about the impact of digital activism on political systems around the world. The Rise of Nerd Politics is an anthropological exploration of the role that such actors play in sparking and managing new processes of political change in the digital age. Drawing from long-term ethnographic research in Spain and Indonesia - as well as case studies from the United States, Iceland, Tunisia, Taiwan, Brazil and elsewhere - Postill tracks the rise of techno-political 'nerds' as a new class of political brokers with growing influence. The book identifies and explores four domains of 'nerd politics' that have dramatically expanded since 2010: data activism, digital rights, social protest and formal politics. A lively and engaging intervention at the conjuncture of anthropology, media studies and sociology, The Rise of Nerd Politics offers a pertinent reflection on the future of political change in the digital age.

The polis in the Hellenistic world
edited by Henning Börm and Nino Luraghi
Stuttgart : Franz Steiner Verlag, [2018]
After having been for decades the province of a relatively small group of scholars, the Hellenistic polis has become central to the research agenda of Ancient historians more broadly. This development can be traced from the early nineties of the last century, and has picked up pace in a sustained fashion at the turn of the millennium. Recent research has started approaching the Greek polis of the centuries between Alexander and Cleopatra as a specific historical phenomenon, striving to define its most peculiar aspects from as many angles as possible, and to point to new avenues of interpretation that might contribute to recognizing its historical role. 0In this general framework, this volume attempts to explore new lines of thought, to question established ways of reading the evidence, and to take stock of recent developments. The contributors do not subscribe to any particular shared approach; on the contrary, their approaches and questions stem from many different scholarly traditions and methodologies. Rather than seeking to achieve a complete coverage, the volume provides a selection of current research agendas, in many cases offering glimpses of ongoing projects.

Meanderings through the politics of everyday life
Porter, Robert, 1972- author
London ; Rowman & Littlefield International, Ltd., [2018]
The politics of everyday life is to be found, time and again, in meandering movements, in making connections across and between things in the rough and tumble of the seemingly banal, fragmentary and quotidian experiences that make up our day-to-day existence. The key point of this book, ideally as well as practically, is to realize that there may be something potentially significant--and politically significant--in the very act of making such connections, of understanding the supposedly trite and trivial world of the everyday against a broader political backcloth. There is merit in sifting the fragments--the fragmentary experiences--of everyday life in order to see how they imply a broader political totality in which they are situated and, at times, cleverly made to function. This intuition, broadly inspired by Henri Lefebvre, is reflected in and through the various and varying ways Robert Porter puts to work the ideas and provocations of thinkers such as Raoul Vaneigem, Gilles Deleuze and Søren Kierkegaard--back cover.

Rights make might : global human rights and minority social movements in Japan
Tsutsui, Kiyoteru, author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2018]
Ainu : from a dying race to an indigenous people -- Zainichi (Korean residents in Japan) : from citizenship rights to universal human rights -- The Buraku Liberation Movement : from a Japanese minority group to an international human rights organization.

"Rights Make Might examines why the three most salient minority groups in Japan all expanded their activism since the late 1970s and chronicles the galvanizing effects of global human rights ideas and institutions on local social movements. The prehistory of the three groups reveals that minority politics in Japan before the 1970s featured politically dormant Ainu - an indigenous people in northern Japan -, active but unsuccessful Koreans - a stateless colonial legacy group -, and active and established Burakumin - a former outcaste group that still faced social discrimination. Despite the unfavorable domestic political environment, the infusion of global human rights ideas and the opening of international human rights arenas as new venues for contestation transformed minority activists' movement actorhood, or subjective understanding about their position and entitled rights in Japan, as well as the views of the Japanese public and political establishment toward those groups, thus catalyzing substantial gains for all three groups. Having benefited from global human rights, all three groups also repaid their debt by contributing to the consolidation and expansion of global human rights principles and instruments. Drawing on interviews and archival data, Rights Make Might offers a detailed historical and comparative analysis of the co-constitutive relationship between international human rights activities and local politics that contributes to our understanding of international norms, multilateral institutions, social movements, human rights, and ethno-racial politics"--

The secret world : a history of intelligence
Andrew, Christopher M., author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2018]
"The history of espionage is far older than any of today's intelligence agencies, yet the long history of intelligence operations has been largely forgotten. The codebreakers at Bletchley Park, the most successful World War II intelligence agency, were completely unaware that their predecessors in earlier moments of national crisis had broken the codes of Napoleon during the Napoleonic wars and those of Spain before the Spanish Armada. Those who do not understand past mistakes are likely to repeat them. Intelligence is a prime example. At the outbreak of World War I, the grasp of intelligence shown by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson and British Prime Minister Herbert Asquith was not in the same class as that of George Washington during the Revolutionary War and leading eighteenth-century British statesmen. In this book, the first global history of espionage ever written, distinguished historian Christopher Andrew recovers much of the lost intelligence history of the past three millennia--and shows us its relevance."--

Network propaganda : manipulation, disinformation, and radicalization in American politics
Benkler, Yochai, author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, 2018
Mapping disorder. Epistemic crisis -- The architecture of our discontent -- The propaganda feedback loop -- Dynamics of network propaganda -- Immigration and Islamophobia: Breitbart and the Trump Party -- The Fox diet. Mainstream media failure modes and self-healing in a propaganda-rich environment -- The usual suspects. The propaganda pipeline: hacking the core from the periphery -- Are the Russians coming? -- Mammon's algorithm: marketing, manipulation, and clickbait on Facebook -- Can democracy survive the Internet?. Polarization in American politics -- The origins of asymmetry -- Can the Internet survive democracy? -- What can men do against such reckless hate? -- Conclusion.

Is social media destroying democracy? Are Russian propaganda or "Fake news" entrepreneurs on Facebook undermining our sense of a shared reality? A conventional wisdom has emerged since the election of Donald Trump in 2016 that new technologies and their manipulation by foreign actors played a decisive role in his victory and are responsible for the sense of a "post-truth" moment in which disinformation and propaganda thrives. Network Propaganda challenges that received wisdom through the most comprehensive study yet published on media coverage of American presidential politics from the start of the election cycle in April 2015 to the one year anniversary of the Trump presidency. Analysing millions of news stories together with Twitter and Facebook shares, broadcast television and YouTube, the book provides a comprehensive overview of the architecture of contemporary American political communications. Through data analysis and detailed qualitative case studies of coverage of immigration, Clinton scandals, and the Trump Russia investigation, the book finds that the right-wing media ecosystem operates fundamentally differently than the rest of the media environment. The authors argue that longstanding institutional, political, and cultural patterns in American politics interacted with technological change since the 1970s to create a propaganda feedback loop in American conservative media. This dynamic has marginalized centre-right media and politicians, radicalized the right wing ecosystem, and rendered it susceptible to propaganda efforts, foreign and domestic. For readers outside the United States, the book offers a new perspective and methods for diagnosing the sources of, and potential solutions for, the perceived global crisis of democratic politics.

Cambridge, UK ; Polity Press, 2018
Migration today and in history -- Justifying a migration regime from an impartial perspective -- Obligations of individuals and states in an unjust world.

States claim the right to pick and choose who can come to their country to live and work. They put up barriers and expose migrants to deadly journeys. Those who are lucky enough to survive are labelled as 'illegal' and find themselves vulnerable and unrepresented. Meanwhile, the international state system advantages people lucky enough to be born in rich countries and locks others into poor and often repressive ones. In this book, Christopher Bertram skilfully weaves a lucid exposition of the debates in political philosophy with original insights to argue that measures that control human movement across borders must be justifiable to everyone. If states are to claim legitimacy, they need to work with other states and migrants themselves to create a migration regime that is fair not only to democratic electorates at home, but also to would-be and actual immigrants. Until justice prevails, states have no credible right to exclude and no-one has a duty to obey their immigration rules. Bertram's analysis powerfully cuts through the unhelpful fog of political rhetoric that surrounds this most controversial of topics to clarify the moral and political issues at stake. It will be essential reading for students, scholars and general readers interested in the politics and ethics of migration.

The mightie frame : epochal change and the modern world
Onuf, Nicholas Greenwood, author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2018]
What can we know? -- Modernity's mighty frame -- Traditional societies -- Transitional figures : Hugo Grotius, Thomas Hobbes, Samuel Pufendorf -- Interlude : 'working models' -- 'This quarter of the globe' -- Transitional figures : Immanuel Kant, Adam Smith, James Madison -- State-nations -- Transitional figures : Edmund Husserl, Emile Durkheim, the Fabian Society -- Interlude : growth rates -- Epochal destruction -- Transitional figures : J.L. Austin, Jay Forrester, Donna Haraway -- Paradise lost? -- Relative virtue -- Epilogue : 'saving constructivism.'

"Nicholas Onuf is one of the originators of constructivist theory in international relations, and is credited with providing the school of thought with its name. His writings have focused on how rules for governing have come to be, arguing that "rules for rule" have solidified over time through repeated behaviors that work themselves out into a system of social uniformity and hierarchy. Rules set out who is a member of society, establish goals, provide opportunities to act, and dictate who sits on top -- i.e., what any political society looks like in a particular time and place. This book looks at the political society that has evolved since the Renaissance, or what might be called "the modern world" in order to consider what is yet to come. Like Foucault, Onuf sees the rules of governance changing in tandem with changes in the way a society thinks -- what together constitute any society's "mighty frame". Unlike Foucault, Onuf argues that modernism marked an end to societal and political transitions, and that we have entered a period during which established conditions of rule are likely to be reinforced-and the mighty frame grow ever mightier"--

The image of "white" and "red" Russia in the Polish political thought of the 19th and 20th century : analogies and parallels
Juchnowski, Jerzy, author
Berlin ; Peter Lang, [2018]
The "red" and "white" Russian state -- The Russian and "Soviet" nation : comparison and analogies -- The culture of the tsarist Russia and the Bolshevik Russia in the Polish political thought in the 19th and the 20th centuries : affirmation-neutralisation-negation -- Introductory remarks -- Personal subjectivity of political thought -- The culture of the tsarist Russia : apologetics, affirmation and neutralisation -- The culture of the Bolshevik Russia : between apologetics, affirmation and neutralisation -- Concluding remarks.

The aim of the book is to analyze the perception of the Tsarist and Bolshevik Russia in the Polish political thought in the 19th and 20th century. The wide and well-documented research applies an original multidisciplinary approach, combining the methods used in many disciplines, such as history, social science and social psychology. The authors of the book successfully defend the thesis that the perception of Russia cannot be fully understood without considering the 'internal' aspects linked to the culture of this country in its psychological and moral dimension, as well as in its literary, architectural and artistic tradition.

Under the starry flag : how a band of Irish Americans joined the Fenian revolt and sparked a crisis over citizenship
Salyer, Lucy E., author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2018
Prologue: Erin's hope and the forgotten right of expatriation -- Part One. The Fenians and the making of a crisis: Clonakilty, God help us! -- Exiles and expatriates -- The Fenian pest -- Civis Americanus sum -- Part Two. Citizenship on trial: A floating rebellion -- The voice from the dungeon -- All the world's a stage -- Part Three. Reconstructing citizenship: Are naturalized Americans, Americans? -- This is a white man's government! -- The politics of expatriation -- Private diplomatizing -- Treating expatriation -- Epilogue: Exits.

In 1867 forty Irish-American freedom fighters, outfitted with guns and ammunition, sailed to Ireland to join the effort to end British rule. Yet they never got a chance to fight. British authorities arrested them for treason as soon as they landed, sparking an international conflict that dragged the United States and England to the brink of war. Under the Starry Flag recounts this gripping legal saga, a prelude to today's immigration battles. The Fenians, as the freedom fighters were known, claimed American citizenship. British authorities disagreed, insisting that naturalized Irish Americans remained British subjects. Following in the wake of the Civil War, the Fenian crisis dramatized anew the idea of citizenship as an inalienable right, as natural as freedom of speech and religion. The captivating trial of these men illustrated the stakes of extending those rights to arrivals from far-flung lands. The case of the Fenians, Lucy E. Salyer shows, led to landmark treaties and laws acknowledging the right of exit. The U.S. Congress passed the Expatriation Act of 1868, which guaranteed the right to renounce one's citizenship, in the same month it granted citizenship to former American slaves. The small ruckus created by these impassioned Irish Americans provoked a human rights revolution that is not, even now, fully realized. Placing Reconstruction-era debates over citizenship within a global context, Under the Starry Flag raises important questions about citizenship and immigration.--

Catch-67 : the left, the right, and the legacy of the Six-Day War
Goodman, Micah, author
New Haven ; Yale University Press, [2018]
Introduction: can the Israeli national conversation be healed? -- Part I. Political ideologies in crisis -- Right and left - a tale of two shifts -- The right's ideological shift -- The left's ideological shift -- Religious Zionism and the Messianic shift -- Part II. Political ideas in crisis -- Both sides are right -- A confusing paradox -- No security problem? -- No demographic problem? -- The moral dilemma -- The Jewish dilemma -- From confusion to understanding -- Part III. The sphere of pragmatic discourse -- The state and its dreams -- The partial-peace plan -- The divergence plan -- Political pragmatism as a bridge between the left and the right -- Afterword.

Since the Six-Day War, Israelis have been entrenched in a national debate over whether to keep the land they conquered or to return some, if not all, of the territories to Palestinians. In a balanced and insightful analysis, Micah Goodman deftly sheds light on the ideas that have shaped Israelis' thinking on both sides of the debate, and among secular and religious Jews about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Contrary to opinions that dominate the discussion, he shows that the paradox of Israeli political discourse is that both sides are right in what they affirm--and wrong in what they deny. Although he concludes that the conflict cannot be solved, Goodman is far from a pessimist and explores how instead it can be reduced in scope and danger through limited, practical steps. Through philosophical critique and political analysis, Goodman builds a creative, compelling case for pragmatism in a dispute where a comprehensive solution seems impossible.

Cyberwar : how Russian hackers and trolls helped elect a president : what we don't, can't, and do know
Jamieson, Kathleen Hall, author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2018]
Introduction: US susceptibilities, troll and hacker synchronies, and my suppositions -- Part one: Who did it, why, and what research says about how it might matter. How do we know that Russian spies and saboteurs (aka hackers and trolls) intervened in the 2016 presidential election? ; A theory of communication that posits effects -- Part two: The prerequisites of troll influence. The first troll prerequisite: widespread messaging ; The second troll prerequisite: messages aligned with Trump's electoral interests ; The third troll prerequisite: mobilizing veterans, white Christians, demobilizing blacks and Sander's supporters, and shifting liberals to Stein ; The fourth troll prerequisite: persuasive appeals ; The fifth troll prerequisite: well-targeted content -- Part three: How the Russian affected the new and debate agendas in the last month of the campaign. The effect of Russian hacking on press coverage ; The effect of hacked content on the last two presidential debates ; The Russian effect on the media agenda in the last days of the election -- Part four: What we don't, can't, and do know about how Russian hackers and trolls helped elected Donald J. Trump. Afterword: Where does this leave us? -- Appendices: Evaluations of Clinton and Trump traits in October -- Appendix one: Changes in perceptions of Clinton and Trump in October -- Appendix two: Debate 2 and debate 3 exposure effect on candidate trait evaluations -- Appendix three: Association between perception changes and vote intentions -- Appendix four: Effect of traits on vote intention.

"The question of how Donald Trump won the 2016 election looms over his presidency. In particular, were the 78,000 voters who gave him an Electoral College victory affected by the Russian trolls and hackers? Trump had denied it. So too has Vladimir Putin. Others cast the answer as unknowable. Drawing on path-breaking work in which she and her colleagues isolated significant communications effects in the 2000 and 2008 presidential campaigns, the eminent political communication scholar Kathleen Hall Jamieson marshals the troll posts, unique polling data, analyses of how the press used the hacked content, and a synthesis of half a century of media effects research to argue that, although not certain, it is probable that the Russians helped elect the 45th president of the United States. In the process, Cyberwar tackles questions that include: How extensive was the troll messaging? What characteristics of the social media platforms did the Russians exploit? Why did the mainstream press rush the hacked content into the citizenry's newsfeeds? Was Clinton telling the truth when she alleged that the debate moderators distorted what she said in the leaked speeches? Did the Russian influence extend beyond social media and news to alter the behavior of FBI director James Comey? After detailing the ways in which the Russian efforts were abetted by the press, social media platforms, the candidates, party leaders, and a polarized public, Cyberwar closes with a warning: the country is ill-prepared to prevent a sequel" --

Introduction : institutions as a cosmopolitan concern / Luis Cabrera -- Popular resource sovereignty / Leif Wenar -- Reflections on institutional cosmopolitanism : state responsibility in a globalized age / Richard Beardsworth -- The responsible cosmopolitan state / Richard Shapcott -- Global governance : procedures, outcomes and justice / Simon Caney -- Reform, resist, create : institutional cosmopolitanism and duties toward suprastate institutions / Luis Cabrera -- International organizations and democracy : an assessment / Mathias Koenig-Archibugi -- Global justice at the municipal scale : the case of Medellín, Colombia / Fonna Forman and Teddy Cruz -- Demos-cracy for the European Union : why and how / Philippe van Parijs -- Cosmopolitan justice, democracy and the world state / Catherine Lu -- All together now : geography, the three cosmopolitanisms and planetary earth / Daniel H. Deudney.

Is a global institutional order composed of sovereign states fit for cosmopolitan moral purpose? Cosmopolitan political theorists challenge claims that states, nations or other collectives have ultimate moral significance. They focus instead on individuals: on what they share and on what each may owe to all the others. They see principles of distributive justice - and increasingly political justice - applying with force in a global system in which billions continue to suffer from severe poverty and deprivation, political repression, interstate violence and other ills. Cosmopolitans diverge widely, however, on the institutional implications of their shared moral view. Some argue that the current system of competing sovereign states tends to promote unjust0outcomes and stands in need of deep structural reform. Others reject such claims and contend that justice can be pursued through transforming the orientations and conduct of individual and collective agents, especially states. 0This volume brings together prominent political theorists and International Relations scholars - including some skeptics of cosmopolitanism - in a far-ranging dialogue about the institutional implications of the cosmopolitan approach. Contributors offer penetrating analyses of both continuing and emerging issues around state sovereignty, democratic autonomy and accountability, and the promotion and protection of human rights. They also debate potential reforms of the current global system, from the transformation of cities and states to the creation of some encompassing world government capable of effectively promoting cosmopolitan aims.

Politics with the people : building a directly representative democracy
Neblo, Michael A., author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Introduction: directly representative democracy -- The spirit and form of popular government -- Building a new home style -- Half of democracy -- Rational ignorance and reasonable learning -- (The) deliberative persuasion -- Representative connections -- Scaling up and scaling out -- Conclusion: Republican redux.

"Many citizens in the US and abroad fear that democratic institutions have become weak, and continue to weaken. Politics with the People develops the principles and practice of 'directly representative democracy' - a new way of connecting citizens and elected officials to improve representative government. Sitting members of Congress agreed to meet with groups of their constituents via online, deliberative town hall meetings to discuss some of the most important and controversial issues of the day. The results from these experiments reveal a model of how our democracy could work, where politicians consult with and inform citizens in substantive discussions, and where otherwise marginalized citizens participate and are empowered. Moving beyond our broken system of interest group politics and partisan bloodsport, directly representative reforms will help restore citizens' faith in the institutions of democratic self-government, precisely at a time when those institutions themselves feel dysfunctional and endangered"--

Indian suffragettes : female identities and transnational networks
Mukherjee, Sumita, 1981- author
New Delhi, India : Oxford University Press, 2018
Introduction: Indian suffrage networks and identities -- 1. Indian suffragettes and British Imperial connections -- 2. Indian suffragettes and Commonwealth networks -- 3. Indian suffragettes and international feminist networks -- 4. Indian suffragettes and Asian, Oriental, or Eastern networks -- 5. Indian suffragettes and Nationalism: rejection of British networks -- Epilogue: Women, votes, and seats in the Indian subcontinent after 1947.

"Popular depictions of campaigns for women's suffrage in films and literature have invariably focused on Western suffrage movements. The fact that Indian women built up a vibrant suffrage movement in the twentieth century has been largely neglected. The Indian 'suffragettes' were not only actively involved in campaigns within the Indian subcontinent, they also travelled to Britain, America, Europe, and elsewhere, taking part in transnational discourses on feminism, democracy, and suffrage. Indian Suffragettes focuses on the different geographical spaces in which Indian women were operating. Covering the period from the 1910s until 1950, it shows how Indian women campaigning for suffrage positioned themselves within an imperial system and invoked various identities, whether regional, national, imperial, or international, in the context of debates about the vote. Significantly, this volume analyses how the global connections that were forged influenced social and political change in the Indian subcontinent, highlighting Indian mobility at a time when they were colonial subjects." --

Contestation and constitution of norms in global international relations
Wiener, Antje, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Whose practices count? -- Norms lie in the practice -- Normative structures and rules of engagement -- Transformative power : framing the co-constitution of normative change -- Making fundamental rights a global issue : the Kadi case and contested "moral responsibility" -- Bringing on the torture convention : the Rumsfeld case and contested universal jurisdiction -- Putting violence against women during wartime onto the global agenda : Resolution 1325 and the contested culture of impunity -- A voice through the practice.

Antje Wiener examines the involvement of local actors in conflicts over global norms such as fundamental rights and the prohibition of torture and sexual violence. Providing accounts of local interventions made on behalf of those affected by breaches of norms, she identifies the constraints and opportunities for stakeholder participation in a fragmented global society. The book also considers cultural and institutional diversity with regard to the co-constitution of norm change. Proposing a clear framework to operationalize research on contested norms, and illustrating it through three recent cases, this book contributes to the project of global international relations by offering an agency-centred approach. It will interest scholars and advanced students of international relations, international political theory, and international law seeking a principled approach to practice that overcomes the practice-norm gap.

The politics of petulance : America in an age of immaturity
Wolfe, Alan, 1942- author
Chicago, IL : The University of Chicago Press, 2018
Mature liberalism -- Democracy's demagogue -- The return of mass society -- From conspiracy to irony -- Tragedy, comedy, and American democracy -- Immature democracy -- Some lessons for the future.

How did we get into this mess? Every morning, many Americans ask this as, with a cringe, they pick up their phones and look to see what terrible thing President Trump has just said or done. Regardless of what he's complaining about or whom he's attacking, a second question comes hard on the heels of the first: How on earth do we get out of this? Alan Wolfe has an answer. In The Politics of Petulance he argues that the core of our problem isn't Trump himself--it's that we are mired in an age of political immaturity. That immaturity is not grounded in any one ideology, nor is it a function of age or education. It's in an abdication of valuing the character of would-be leaders; it's in a failure to acknowledge, even welcome the complexity of government and society; and it's in a loss of the ability to be skeptical without being suspicious. In 2016, many Americans were offered tantalizingly simple answers to complicated problems, and, like children being offered a lunch of Pop Rocks and Coke, they reflexively--and mindlessly--accepted. The good news, such as it is, is that we've been here before. Wolfe reminds us that we know how to grow up and face down Trump and other demagogues. Wolfe reinvigorates the tradition of public engagement exemplified by midcentury intellectuals such as Richard Hofstadter, Reinhold Niebuhr, and Lionel Trilling--and he draws lessons from their battles with McCarthyism and conspiratorial paranoia. Wolfe mounts a powerful case that we can learn from them to forge a new path for political intervention today. Wolfe has been thinking and writing about American life and politics for decades. He sees this moment as one of real risk. But he's not throwing up his hands; he's bracing us. We've faced demagogues before. We can find the intellectual maturity to fight back. Yes we can.

Turkey and transatlantic relations
Sasha Toperich, Aylin Ünver Noi, editors
Washington, D.C. : Center for Transatlantic Relations, The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University, 2017
Turkey's position in transatlantic alliances goes back to the 1950s, and the nation has always been seen as a bridge between the West and East because of its geographic location. Just before the failed coup d'etat last July, the country had launched "Fresh Look," a project aimed at mending ties with neighbors with whom Turkey has strained relationships. This new and pragmatic reconciliation policy strives to build bridges without damaging existing any transatlantic alliance. But the worthy goal of developing good relations with its neighbors presents Turkey with a number of challenges. This volume intends to shed more light into past, present, and future of Turkish relations with its transatlantic partners, focusing on history, the impact of current developments affecting Turkey and its neighbors, and Turkish domestic and foreign policies.

[Maryland] : [the author], 2017
"Here Come the Russian" captures in short sketches and anecdotes the historical periods in early Philadelphia and Washington, DC, when the Russian Empire's Ministers Plenipotentiaries and then Ambassadors (after April 1898) lived and worked closely with the American governmental officials and the president. Many of the Russian officials were well received. Three ministers married American wives and two individuals made mistakes and were recalled by their home government. --Back cover.

Disenfranchising democracy : constructing the electorate in the United States, the United Kingdom, and France
Bateman, David A., author
New York : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Machine generated contents note: 1. The puzzle of democratic disenfranchisement; Part I. The United States: 2. Revolutionary democracy; 3. The 'monstrous spectacle' of Jeffersonian democracy; 4 The white man's republic; Part II. The United Kingdom and France: 5. The fall of the Protestant constitution; 6. The republic through the side door; Conclusion.

"The first wave of democratization in the United States - the removal of property and taxpaying qualifications for the right to vote - was accompanied by the disenfranchisement of African American men, with the political actors most supportive of the former also the most insistent upon the latter. The United States is not unique in this respect: other canonical cases of democratization also saw simultaneous expansions and restrictions of political rights, yet this pattern has never been fully detailed or explained. Through case studies of the USA, the UK, and France, Disenfranchising Democracy offers the first cross-national account of the relationship between democratization and disenfranchisement. It develops a political institutional perspective to explain their co-occurrence, focusing on the politics of coalition-building and the visions of political community coalitions advance in support of their goals. Bateman sheds new light on democratization, connecting it to the construction of citizenship and cultural identities"--

Performances of Injustice : the politics of truth, justice and reconciliation in Kenya
Lynch, Gabrielle, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Part I. Haunted by violence -- Part II. A post-South African truth commission -- Part III. Familiar performances.

"Following unprecedented violence in 2007/8, Kenya introduced two classic transitional justice mechanisms: a truth commission and international criminal proceedings. Both are widely believed to have failed, but why? And what do their performances say about contemporary Kenya, the ways in which violent pasts persist and the shortcomings of transitional justice? Using the lens of performance, this book analyses how transitional justice efforts are incapable of dealing with how unjust and violent pasts actually persist. Gabrielle Lynch reveals the story of an ongoing political struggle requiring substantive socio-economic and political change that transitional justice mechanisms can theoretically recommend, and which they can sometimes help to initiate and inform, but which they cannot implement or create, and can sometimes unintentionally help to reinforce."--Page i.

"Today, democracy is the world's only broadly accepted political system, and yet it has become synonymous with disappointment and crisis. How did it come to this? In [this book], James Miller, author of the classic history of 1960s protest "Democracy Is in the Streets", offers a lively, surprising, and urgent history of the democratic idea from its first stirrings to the present."--Jacket.
