La llamada de la tribu
Vargas Llosa, Mario, 1936- author
Barcelona : Alfaguara, 2018
La llamada de la tribu -- Adam Smith (1723-1790) -- José Ortega y Gasset (1883-1955) -- Friedrich August von Hayek (1899-1992) -- Sir Karl Popper (1902-1994) -- Raymond Aron (1905-1983) -- Sir Isaiah Berlin (1909-1979) -- Jean-François Revel (1924-2006)

The difference between this autobiography and others like El pez en el agua /A Fish in the Water is that this book's leading role is not necessarily the author's experiences, but rather the literature that shaped his way of thinking and his way of seeing the world in the last fifty years. The Peruvian Nobel laureate creates a roadmap of the liberal thinkers that helped him develop a new set of ideas after the great ideological disappointment that was, on the one hand, his disenchantment with the Cuban Revolution and, on the other, a distancing of sorts from an author who had greatly inspired him in his youth, Jean-Paul Sartre. The authors which he analyzes are Adam Smith, Jose Ortega y Gasset, Friedrich Hayek, Karl Popper, Raymond Aron, Isaiah Berlin and Jean-Fraçois Revel, who were of great help during those disconcerting years, showing him a new train of thought which gave the individual more power than the "tribe", the nation, the class or the party, and that defended freedom of expression as a fundamental value for democracy. -- Provided by publisher.

The unbroken machine : Canada's democracy in action
Smith, Dale, 1978- author
Toronto, Ontario, Canada : Dundurn, [2017]
The age of civic illiteracy -- A refresher on responsible government -- Elections as democracy and accountability -- The House of Commons -- The Senate you don't know -- The Maple Crown -- Changing the poisoned chalice.

"Everybody thinks that it's the system that's broken in politics; but what if it's not the system that's broken but rather our understanding of it? What if everyone's proposals to make the system "more democratic" only wind up making things worse, and weaken our systems of accountability so much as to make them meaningless? What if it's our own ignorance that is killing democracy in this country? Dale Smith looks at the critical gaps in civic literacy that have become endemic within Canadian political culture, wading through buzzwords and meaningless proposals to suggest real solutions. Designed for the lay reader, The Unbroken Machine seeks to explore our lack of civic literacy and show how our system of democracy should work? if only we were to engage with it the way it was meant to be."--Back cover.

Twenty-first-century immigration to North America : newcomers in turbulent times
edited by Victoria M. Esses and Donald E. Abelson
Chicago : McGill-Queen's University Press, [2017]
Managing immigration : a short history of turbulence and public policy / Meyer Burstein -- US immigration reform / Susan F. Martin -- Economic outcomes of immigrants in Canada / Charles M. Beach -- Immigration skill utilization : trends and policy issues / Jeffrey G. Reitz, Josh Curtis, and Jennifer Elrick -- The impact of immigration on the US labour market : what have we learned since 2000 and what do we need to do next? / Cordelia W. Reimers -- Assimilation and its discontented / Kay Deaux -- Muslim immigration to North America : the rise of new challenges and the need for new perspectives / Abdolmohammad Kazemipur -- Comparing immigrant children in Canada and the United States : similarities and differences / Monica Boyd and Diana Worts -- Filling the federal policy void : state and local responses to undocumented immigration in the United States / Els de Graauw -- Value conflict in turbulent times : shifting policies on refugees, asylum-seekers, and undocumented migrants / Alan Simmons.

Human migration has reached an unprecedented level, and the numbers are expected to continue growing into the foreseeable future. Host societies and migrants face challenges in ensuring that the benefits of migration accrue to both parties, and that economic and socio-cultural costs are minimized. An insightful comparative examination of the policies and practices that manage and support immigrants to Canada and the United States, Twenty-First-Century Immigration to North America identifies and addresses issues that arose in the early years of the twenty-first century and considers what to expect in the years ahead. The volume begins with an overview of immigration policies and practices in Canada and the United States, then moves to an investigation of the economic and socio-cultural aspects, and concludes with a dialogue on precarious migration. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, the editors include research from the areas of psychology, political science, economics, sociology, and public policy. Underscoring the complicated nature of immigration, this collection aims to foster further discussion and inspire future research in Canada and the United States. -- Amazon.com.

Roman political thought
Atkins, Jed W., author
New York, NY, USA : Cambridge University Press, 2018
The Roman constitution in theory and practice -- Liberty and related concepts -- Citizenship and civic virtue -- Political passions and civic corruption -- Rhetoric, deliberation, and judgment -- Religion -- Imperialism, just war theory, and cosmopolitanism.

What can the Romans teach us about politics? This thematic introduction to Roman political thought shows how the Roman world developed political ideas of lasting significance, from the consequential constitutional notions of the separation of powers, political legitimacy, and individual rights to key concepts in international relations, such as imperialism, just war theory, and cosmopolitanism. Jed W. Atkins relates these and many other important ideas to Roman republicanism, traces their evolution across all major periods of Roman history, and describes Christianity's important contributions to their development. Using the politics and political thought of the United States as a case study, he argues that the relevance of Roman political thought for modern liberal democracies lies in the profound mixture of ideas both familiar and foreign to us that shape and enliven Roman republicanism. Accessible to students and non-specialists, this book provides an invaluable guide to Roman political thought and its enduring legacies.--

European mobility in times of crisis : the new context of European South-North migration
Birgit Glorius, Josefina Dominguez-Mujica (eds.)
Bielefeld : Transcript, [2017]
The global economic and financial crisis has had a severe impact on southern European economies and stimulated growing numbers of mainly young migrants heading north, nurturing the fear of brain drain back home. This volume compiles recent research on European south-north migration, addressing migration processes and practices, the management of migration by institutions, and relevant public debates. It thereby delivers an important contribution to the understanding of the durability and context of recent European south-north migration and their consequences for European economies, politics, and societies. --

The Euro crisis and European identities : political and media discourse in Germany, Ireland and Poland
Galpin, Charlotte, author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2017]
Introduction -- European identities at times of crisis -- European identity discourses in Germany, Ireland and Poland -- Has Germany fallen out of love with Europe? -- Irish identity and the utility of Europe -- The battle for the European core : Polishness as Europeanness? -- Identity continuity : actors, institutions and interests -- Euroscepticism, identity and democracy in the EU.

This book builds upon our knowledge of the far-reaching economic, political and social effects of the Euro crisis on the European Union by providing a unique study of European identities. In particular, it considers the impact on the construction of European identities in political and media discourse in Germany, Ireland and Poland--three countries with profoundly different experiences of the crisis and never before compared in a single study. Offering an original insight into the dynamics of identity change at moments of upheaval, the author argues that political and media actors in the early stages of the crisis drew on long-standing identities in order to make sense of the crisis in the public sphere. European identity discourses are thus resilient to change but become central to legitimising and contesting bailouts and further economic integration. As such, the author challenges the commonly held view that identities change dramatically at times of crisis but argues that this very resilience helps to understand the EU's current divisions. The study of identity during the Euro crisis sheds important light on the prospects for European solidarity as well as on the future of the single currency as an identity-building project. The book will be of particular interest to students and scholars in the fields of EU politics, comparative European politics, and identity politics.

Permanent campaigning in Canada
edited by Alex Marland, Thierry Giasson, and Anna Lennox Esselment
Toronto : UBC Press, [2017]
Part 3: Governance. Institutional Change, Permanent Campaigning, and Canada's Fixed Election Date Law -- Preaching to the Choir in Case It Is Losing Faith: Government Advertising's Direct Electoral Consequences -- The Obama Approach in Canada: Lessons in Leadership Branding -- Campaigning from the Centre -- Permanent Campaigning and Digital Government -- 24 Seven Videostyle: Blurring the Lines and Building Strong Leadership -- Vulnerable Populations and the Permanent Campaign: Disability Organizations as Policy Entrepreneurs -- Permanent Campaigning: Changing the Nature of Canadian Democracy.

"Election campaigning never stops. That is the new reality of Canadian politics, where everyone from the partisans who control the government to backbench MPs practice non-stop political marketing and communication. With the emergence of fixed-date elections and digital media, each day has become a battle to win mini-contests: the news cycle, message framing, public opinion polls, quarterly fundraising results, by-elections, and more. If taxpayers can foot the bill of these activities instead of the party, so much the better. Previously confined to the American political system, this "permanent campaign" approach to government now pervades Canada's system. Political actors use all available tools at their disposal to secure electoral advantage, including the leveraging of public resources for partisan gain. "Permanent Campaigning in Canada" examines the growth of constant campaigning in this country, and its democratic implications. Topical subjects include the use of political databases, the strategy behind online political communication, the politicization of government advertising, and the role of the Prime Minister's Office and political staff. This is the first study of a phenomenon that has become embedded in Canadian politics and government. It reveals the depth and breadth to which political parties have embraced."--

Syriza in power : reflections of an accidental politician
Douzinas, Costas, 1951- author
Malden, MA : Polity Press, 2017
From Utopia to Dystopia and Resistance, a Short Run / Hunger Strikers and Hunger Artists / Radical Philosophy Encounters Syriza / A Philosophy of Resistance / A Very European Coup / Contradiction is the Name of the Governing Left / Welcome To The Desert Of Disorderly Order / Learning from Ideology / The Curious Incident of the Missing TV Licenses / The Ethos of the Left / Greeks or Europeans? / The Euro, the Sacred and the Holy / The Left and the Philosophy Of History / 1949, 1969, 1989: The Cycles of History / Putting the Demos On Stage / Grexit and Brexit, Oxi and Leave / Brexit and Euroscepticism / Finis Europae? / The Left and the Future of Europe / Europe Between Two Infant Deaths / Human Rights For Martians.

"Amidst the turmoil of economic crisis, Greece has become the first European experiment of Left rule in a sea of neoliberalism. What happens when a government of the Left, committed to social justice and the reversal of austerity, is blackmailed into following policies it has fought against and strongly opposes? What can the experience of the Syriza government tell us about the prospects for the Left in the 21st century? In this engaging and provocative book, Costas Douzinas uses his position as an "accidental politician", unexpectedly propelled from academia into the world of Greek politics as a Syriza MP, to answer these urgent questions. Weaving together theoretical insights as a leading radical thinker with his inside knowledge of events and personalities, he examines the challenges facing Syriza since its assent to power in 2015 and draws out the theoretical and political lessons from one of the boldest and most difficult experiments in governing from the Left in an age of austerity. Examining issues ranging from the coup against the Syriza government to the impact of the refugee crisis, from Grexit to Brexit and the future of Europe, this timely book will be of immense importance to anyone seeking to understand the Greek struggle and its implications for resistance, politics and culture in the contemporary world"--

The Walter Lippmann colloquium : the birth of neo-liberalism
Reinhoudt, Jurgen, author
[Cham, Switzerland] : Palgrave Macmillan, 2018
1. Introduction -- 2. Colloquium Participants -- 3. Foreword and Opening Lectures of the Walter Lippmann Colloquium -- 4. Is the Decline of Liberalism Due to Endogenous Causes? -- 5. Liberalism and the War Economy -- 6 Liberalism and Economic Nationalism -- 7. Liberalism and the Social Question -- 8. Psychological and Social Causes, Political and Ideological Causes of the Decline of Liberalism -- 9. The Agenda of Liberalism -- 10. The Theoretical and Practical Problems of the Return to Liberalism.

This book is an introduction to and translation of the 1938 Walter Lippmann Colloquium held in Paris, which became known as the intellectual birthplace of?neo-liberalism.? Although the Lippmann Colloquium has been the subject of significant recent interest, this book makes this crucial primary source available to a wide, English-speaking audience for the first time. The Colloquium features important?often passionate?debates involving well-known intellectual figures such as Walter Lippmann, Louis Rougier, Friedrich Hayek, Ludwig von Mises, Michael Polanyi, Jacques Rueff, Alexander Rüstow and Wilhelm Röpke. Many of the topics addressed at the Colloquium, such as the proper methods of economic intervention, the relationship between the market economy and democracy, and the relationship between economic liberalism and political liberalism are issues that still vie for our attention in the aftermath of the Great Recession.

Political participation in Asia : defining & deploying political space
edited by Eva Hansson and Meredith L. Weiss
New York : Routledge,Taylor & Francis Group, 2018

"This book explores political participation in Asia and how democracy and authoritarianism function under neoliberal economic relations. It examines changes that coincide seemingly perversely with a participation explosion: with mass street protests and "occupations," energetic online contention, movements of students and workers, mobilization for and against democracy, and more. Organised thematically in three parts--political participation in a "postdemocratic" context, changes in the scope and character of political space, and the policing of that space--this book analyses economic, regime and media shifts and how they function in tandem and across not just states, but sub-regions"--

Trust and mistrust in contemporary Japanese politics
edited by Kerstin Lukner and Alexandra Sakaki
New York, NY : Routledge, 2018
This book offers a timely examination of the role of trust - or lack thereof - in contemporary Japanese politics. It portrays the political trust deficit prevalent in Japan through a unique range of case studies, illustrating how mistrust, rather than trust, impacts politics in Japan today. The first chapter introduces key trust concepts and the state of trust research on Japan. The second analyses voters' trust levels in politics and parties and explores possible consequences of prevalent mistrust, including electoral volatility and instability in the party system. The following case study investigates the government's choices in rebuilding the Tohoku region, devastated by the '3/11' triple disaster of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear reactor meltdown in 2011. It highlights how policies eroded already low trust levels among Japanese citizens in their government. The next chapter explores Japanese consumer trust in food safety and related regulations in post-3/11 Japan, finding deficiencies in the government's risk communication. The fifth case study turns towards multiculturalism in educational policies and schooling practices, scrutinizing Japan's readiness to face the challenge of trust-building between members of different ethnic groups. The final chapter illuminates the trust deficit in Japan's relations with China, explaining how trust-building opportunities were missed in the past, leading to a continuous erosion of bilateral ties. The chapters originally published as a special issue in Japan Forum.

Polity : demystifying democracy in Latin America and beyond
Foweraker, Joe, author
Boulder, Colorado : Lynne Rienner Publishers, 2018
Polity and Latin America -- Polity as a political system -- The making of the modern polity -- State, regime, and civil society -- Polity, inequality, and the republic -- Populism and polity -- Constitutionalism and polity -- Polity, rights, and protest -- Demystifying democracy.

Amidst the many lamentations about the problems of democracy, Joe Foweraker turns his attention to specific questions: Is democracy incompatible with stark social inequalities? Why are so many democratic governments deemed unaccountable and beset by populist pressures? Perhaps most fundamentally, why does democratic theory have no answers to these questions? Foweraker argues that finding answers requires a root-and-branch revision of our thinking about democracy a revision that asks us to stop talking about "democracy" and start talking about "polity." Drawing on the political realities of Latin America, he describes polity as a system encompassing the distinct but conjoined domains of oligarchy and democracy; and he offers a conceptual framework that identifies the key components and logic of polity. His innovative analysis affords a better understanding not only of democracy in Latin America, but also of democratic regimes around the world. --

What is at stake in building "non-western" international relations theory?
Eun, Yong-Soo, author
New York, NY : Routledge, 2018
Opening up the debate over "non-western" international relations (IR) -- The extent of diversity in IR : multiple dimensions -- Why is IR so western/positivist-centric? -- Broadening IR through dialogue : bridging the positivist/post-positivist divide -- Broadening IR through dialogue : interweaving western IR theory with the indigenous experience of Asia -- Conclusion : reflexive solidarity.

"International Relations (IR) as a discipline is often deemed to be 'too Western' centric. It has been argued that much of mainstream IR theory is 'simply an abstraction of Western history.' In this respect, many IR scholars have called for 'broadening' the theoretical horizon of IR while problematising the Western parochialism of the discipline, and it is increasingly acknowledged that IR needs to embrace a wider range of histories, experiences, and theoretical perspectives, particularly those outside of the West. However, despite such a meaningful debate over broadening the theoretical and practical horizons of IR, several critical questions remain unclear and under-explored. For example, does IR need to embrace pluralism? If so, how much? To what extent, and in what sense, is IR parochial? Should IR promote dialogue across theoretical and spatial divides? If so, how? [The author] addresses these questions. He undertakes a literature review and an empirical analysis of the extent to which the field has actually become diverse and pluralistic. This investigation considers diversity beyond the current limited focus on the geographical origins of theory. [The author] also draws attention to the mechanisms and processes of knowledge production and transmission in IR. More importantly, he addresses what is probably the most acute issue associated with the 'non-Western' IR theory-building enterprise; namely, fragmentation and dialogue. In conclusion, [the author] notes that the role of unsettling the present hierarchical structure of the discipline falls to reflexive individual agents. He argues that in order for their agential power to be more fully harnessed in the opening up of IR, critical 'self'-reflection and 'collective' empathy and collaboration among marginalised scholars are all essential."--

Rise up, women! : the remarkable lives of the suffragettes
Atkinson, Diane, author
London : Bloomsbury, [2018]
After-lives of the suffragettes -- Appendix one: Chronology -- Appendix two: Money and value.

"Between the death of Queen Victoria and the outbreak of the First World War, while the patriarchs of the Liberal and Tory parties vied for supremacy in parliament, the campaign for women's suffrage was fought with great flair and imagination in the public arena. Led by Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters Christabel and Sylvia, the suffragettes and their actions would come to define protest movements for generations to come. From their marches on Parliament and 10 Downing Street, to the selling of their paper, Votes for Women, through to the more militant activities of the Women's Social and Political Union, whose slogan 'Deeds Not Words!' resided over bombed pillar-boxes, acts of arson and the slashing of great works of art, the women who participated in the movement endured police brutality, assault, imprisonment and force-feeding, all in the relentless pursuit of one goal: the right to vote. A hundred years on, Diane Atkinson celebrates the lives of the women who answered the call to 'Rise Up'; a richly diverse group that spanned the divides of class and country, women of all ages who were determined to fight for what had been so long denied. Actresses to mill-workers, teachers to doctors, seamstresses to scientists, clerks, boot-makers and sweated workers, Irish, Welsh, Scottish and English; a wealth of women's lives are brought together for the first time, in this meticulously researched, vividly rendered and truly defining biography of a movement."--Dust jacket cover.

Coups, rivals, and the modern state : why rural coalitions matter in sub-Saharan Africa
Rabinowitz, Beth, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2018
"Over the past three decades, sub-Saharan Africa has undergone promising changes. Most countries have instituted regular multiparty elections. Military rule has been on a steady decline. With this increased stability, Africa has seen unparalleled economic growth. So much so that sub-Saharan growth rates exceeded those of the world economy for the first two decades of the new millennium. Yet, there are troubling trends as well. The vast majority of low-income countries are found south of the Sahara. African states grapple with food insecurity, high unemployment, poverty, poor infrastructure, environmental degradation, and low integration in the global economy. Nor has political liberalization been wholly progressive. One-third of the states identified as 'not free' in 2017 by Freedom House were in sub-Saharan Africa. In many instances, African presidents have been able to work around multi-party elections and remain in power for two, three, in some cases even four decades. Countries like Burundi, South Sudan, Somalia, and the Central African Republic have continued to be on the precipice of civil conflict. And although there are fewer coups, since 2000 fourteen presidents have been successfully overthrown."--Publisher's summary.

Toward Kantian cosmopolitanism
Cebolla Sanahuja, Lorena, author
[Cham, Switzerland] : Palgrave Macmillan, [2017]
1. Introduction -- 2. The prehistory of cosmopolitanism -- 3. The rise and fall of cosmopolitan law -- 4. On the Sorry Comforters of the Law of Nations -- 5. From cosmopolitanism to the virtuous market -- 6. Kantian cosmopolitanism -- 7. Conclusion -- Index.

"This book examines the history of cosmopolitanism from its origins in the ancient world up to its use in Kantian political philosophy. Taking the idea of "common property of the land" as a starting point, the author makes the original case that attention to this concept is needed to properly understand the notion of cosmopolitan citizenship. Offering a reconstruction of cosmopolitanism from an interdisciplinary point of view, 'Toward Kantian cosmopolitanism' shows how the concept sits at the intersection between philosophical debates, legal realities and the origins of the construction of the discipline of international law"--Back cover.

Symbolic insult in diplomacy : a subtle game of diplomatic slap
Faĭzullaev, A. A. author
Boston : Brill Nijhoff, [2018]
Introduction : the puzzle of symbolic insult in diplomacy -- Diplomatic actors : self and other -- Diplomatic actor's sense of self and ontological security -- Three types of insult in diplomacy -- Diplomatic imperatives and symbolic insult -- Symbolic insult in diplomacy as a manipulative practice -- Symbolic insult in digital diplomacy -- The range and level of symbolic insult in diplomacy -- Tacit bargaining and symbolic insult -- Face diplomacy and symbolic insult.

In 'Symbolic Insult in Diplomacy: A Subtle Game of Diplomatic Slap', Alisher Faizullaev describes how states and their representatives may use manipulative practices for influencing the opponent. The author distinguishes three forms of using symbolic insult in diplomacy: by misrecognition ("diplomatic bypassing"), direct confrontation ("diplomatic punch"), and concealed verbal or nonverbal actions ("diplomatic slap"). The book focuses on "diplomatic slap"? -- employing obscure symbolic insult as a means of tacit manipulation. Analyzing historical and modern cases, Alisher Faizullaev shows that implicit symbolic insult usually appears ambiguously, and allows the offender to stay engaged with the victim. This work reveals vailed aspects of diplomatic practices and represents a valuable source for students and practitioners of international politics and diplomacy.

Researching emotions in international relations : methodological perspectives on the emotional turn
Maéva Clément, Eric Sangar, editors
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
"This edited volume is the first to discuss the methodological implications of the 'emotional turn' in International Relations. While emotions have become of increasing interest to IR theory, methodological challenges have yet to receive proper attention. Acknowledging the plurality of ontological positions, concepts and theories about the role of emotions in world politics, this volume presents and discusses various ways to research emotions empirically. Based on concrete research projects, the chapters demonstrate how social-scientific and humanities-oriented methodological approaches can be successfully adapted to the study of emotions in IR. The volume covers a diverse set of both well-established and innovative methods, including discourse analysis, ethnography, narrative, and visual analysis. Through a hands-on approach, each chapter sheds light on practical challenges and opportunities, as well as lessons learnt for future research. The volume is an invaluable resource for advanced graduate and post-graduate students as well as scholars interested in developing their own empirical research on the role of emotions"--Publisher's description.

War, law and humanity : the campaign to control warfare, 1853-1914
Crossland, James (Historian), author
London, UK : Bloomsbury Academic, 2018
War, Law and Humanity tells the story of the transatlantic campaign to either mitigate the destructive forces of the battlefield, or prevent wars from being waged altogether, in the decades prior to the disastrous summer of 1914. Starting with the Crimean War of the 1850s, James Crossland traces this campaign to control warfare from the scandalous barracks of Scutari to the shambolic hospitals of the American Civil War, from the bloody sieges of Paris and Erzurum to the combative conference halls of Geneva and The Hague, uncovering the intertwined histories of a generation of humanitarians, surgeons, pacifists and utopians who were shocked into action by the barbarism and depravities of war. By examining the fascinating personal accounts of these figures, Crossland illuminates the complex motivations and influential actions of those committed to the campaign to control war, demonstrating how their labours built the foundation for the ideas - enshrined in our own times as international norms - that soldiers need caring for, weapons need restricting and wars need rules.

Coercive distribution
Albertus, Michael, 1983- author
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Canonical theories of political economy struggle to explain patterns of distribution in authoritarian regimes. In this Element, Albertus, Fenner, and Slater challenge existing models and introduce an alternative, supply-side, and state-centered theory of 'coercive distribution'. Authoritarian regimes proactively deploy distributive policies as advantageous strategies to consolidate their monopoly on power. These policies contribute to authoritarian durability by undercutting rival elites and enmeshing the masses in lasting relations of coercive dependence. The authors illustrate the patterns, timing, and breadth of coercive distribution with global and Latin American quantitative evidence and with a series of historical case studies from regimes in Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East. By recognizing distribution's coercive dimensions, they account for empirical patterns of distribution that do not fit with quasi-democratic understandings of distribution as quid pro quo exchange. Under authoritarian conditions, distribution is less an alternative to coercion than one of its most effective expressions.

Migrants of the british diaspora since the 1960s : stories from modern nomads
Hammerton, A. James,
Manchester : Manchester University Press, 2017
5 Migration and career stories: work in an age of mobility6 Family, love, marriage and migration: the push and pull of private life; 7 The quest for new lifestyles: migration, treechange and grey nomads; 8 Changing faces of modern migration; Appendix: Tables 1-8; Bibliography; Index

This is the first social history to explore experiences of British emigrants from the peak years of the 1960s to the emigration resurgence of the turn of the twentieth century. It explores migrant experiences in Australia, Canada and New Zealand alongside other countries. The book charts the gradual reinvention of the 'British diaspora' from a postwar migration of austerity to a modern migration of prosperity. It offers a different way of writing migration history, based on life histories but exploring mentalities as well as experiences, against a setting of deep social and economic change. Key moments are the 1970s loss of Britons' privilege in Commonwealth destination countries, 'Thatcher's refugees' in the 1980s and shifting attitudes to cosmopolitanism and global citizenship by the 1990s. It charts a long process of change from the 1960s to patterns of discretionary and nomadic migration, which became more common practice from the end of the twentieth century.

Invisible countries : journeys to the edge of nationhood
Keating, Joshua, author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2018]
A thoughtful analysis of how our world's borders came to be and why we may be emerging from a lengthy period of "cartographical stasis" What is a country? While certain basic tenets-such as the clear demarcation of a country's borders, and the acknowledgment of its sovereignty by other countries and by international governing bodies like the United Nations-seem applicable, journalist Joshua Keating's book explores exceptions to these rules, including "breakaway," "semi-autonomous," or "self-proclaimed" countries such as Abkhazia, Kurdistan, Somaliland, a Mohawk reservation straddling the U.S.-Canada border, and an island nation whose very existence is threatened by climate change. Through stories about these countries' efforts at self-determination, as well as their respective challenges, Keating reveals that there is no universal legal authority determining what we consider a country. He argues that although our current world map appears fairly static, economic, cultural, and environmental forces in the places he describes may spark change. Keating ably bridges history with incisive and sympathetic observations drawn from his travel and personal interviews with residents, political leaders, and scholars in each of these countries.

Deliberative democracy now : LGBT equality and the emergence of large-scale deliberative systems
Barvosa, Edwina, author
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Introduction : deliberative systems and the problem of scale -- Theoretical overview : deliberative systems at work -- Catalysts of a deliberative system -- Social networks in deliberative system growth and implementation power -- Overcoming cognitive obstacles : implicit bias, identity threats and fear -- Hidden quandaries and implications for deliberative democracy -- Conclusion : large-scale deliberative democracy: possible if chosen.

"Dysfunction in American democracy has become a source of concern and even alarm to people across the political spectrum in the US and around the globe. While these concerns are well founded, it is worthwhile to remember that democracy itself is evolving. Like other forms of social self-organization it shifts and transforms in and over time as societies themselves change in unforeseen ways. For several decades numerous scholars have held that one next possible stage in the evolution of democracy is the emergence of "deliberative democracy." In this vision, deliberative democracy is generally defined as democratic self- governance in which a democratic public makes choices regarding how to live in common through a conversation-based process of collective discussion and reflection. This deliberative process has been described often-frequently following the philosopher Jurgen Habermas-as involving an exchange of reasons among people who are engaged in meaningful communication and consideration on a matter of common concern. In this model of deliberative democracy, therefore, a common will emerges through the process of collective reflection, discussion, and choice"--

The suffragette bombers : Britain's forgotten terrorists
Webb, Simon (Historian), author
Barnsley, South Yorkshire : Pen & Sword History 2014
Chapter 1: Suffragettes and Suffragists; Chapter 2: The Edwardian World; Chapter 3: An Undemocratic Organisation; Chapter 4: The Use of Terror and the Need for Martyrs; Chapter 5: Emily Davison-Portrait of a Terrorist; Chapter 6: Bombing and Arson; Chapter 7: The Terrorist Campaign Gathers Pace; Chapter 8: Winter, 1913; Chapter 9: Dead End-Saved by the War; Chapter 10: The Plot to Kill The Prime Minister; Chapter 11: How the Vote was Won; Chapter 12: The Birth of a Myth.

Simon Webb explores the way in which the suffragette bombers have been airbrushed from history, leaving us with a distorted view of the struggle for female suffrage. Not only were the suffragettes far more aggressive than is generally known, but there exists the very real and surprising possibility that their militant activities actually delayed, rather than hastened, the granting of the parliamentary vote to British women.

Leftism reinvented : Western parties from socialism to neoliberalism
Mudge, Stephanie L., 1973- author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2018
Analyzing leftism's reinventions -- From socialist, to economistic, to neoliberalized leftism -- The genesis and infrastructure of socialist leftism -- European leftism's first reinvention -- Economistic leftism, American-style--or, making the Democrats "left" -- Interdependence in the making of leftism's second reinvention -- New economists, new experts, new Democrats -- Making Western European leftism "progressive" -- Conclusions and implications.

Left-leaning political parties play an important role as representatives of the poor and disempowered. They once did so by promising protections from the forces of capital and the market's tendencies to produce inequality. But in the 1990s they gave up on protection, asking voters to adapt to a market-driven world. Meanwhile, new, extreme parties began to promise economic protections of their own--albeit in an angry, anti-immigrant tone. To better understand today's strange new political world, Stephanie L. Mudge's Leftism Reinvented analyzes the history of the Swedish and German Social Democrats, the British Labour Party, and the American Democratic Party. Breaking with an assumption that parties simply respond to forces beyond their control, Mudge argues that left parties' changing promises expressed the worldviews of different kinds of experts. To understand how left parties speak, we have to understand the people who speak for them. Leftism Reinvented shows how Keynesian economists came to speak for left parties by the early 1960s. These economists saw their task in terms of discretionary, politically-sensitive economic management. But in the 1980s a new kind of economist, who viewed the advancement of markets as left parties' main task, came to the fore. Meanwhile, as voters' loyalties to left parties waned, professional strategists were called upon to "spin" party messages. Ultimately, left parties undermined themselves, leaving a representative vacuum in their wake. Leftism Reinvented raises new questions about the roles and responsibilities of left parties--and their experts--in politics today.--

Guilherme Marques Pedro offers an innovative account of Reinhold Niebuhr's eclectic thought, branching out into politics, ethics, history, society and religion and laying out a conceptual framework through which his work, as much as the realist tradition of international political thought as a whole, can be read. The book calls for the need to revisit classic thinkers within IR theory with an eye to their interdisciplinary background and as a way to remind ourselves of the issues that were at stake within the field as it was growing in autonomy and diversity - issues which remain, regardless of its disciplinary development, at the core of IR's concerns. This book offers an important contribution to IR scholarship, revealing the great historical wealth, intellectual originality but also the limitations and paradoxes of one of the greatest American political thinkers of the twentieth century. --

Stewart -- Conclusion : Stopping Illicit Trade in Nuclear Technology : Progress, Gaps, and Next Steps / Martin B. Malin, Matthew Bunn, Leonard S. Spector, William C. Potter.

Every nuclear weapons program for decades has relied extensively on illicit imports of nuclear-related technologies. This book offers the most detailed public account of how states procure what they need to build nuclear weapons, what is currently being done to stop them, and how global efforts to prevent such trade could be strengthened. While illicit nuclear trade can never be stopped completely, effective steps to block illicit purchases of nuclear technology have sometimes succeeded in slowing nuclear weapons programs and increasing their costs, giving diplomacy more chance to work. Hence, this book argues, preventing illicit transfers wherever possible is a key element of an effective global non-proliferation strategy.

"They take our jobs!" : and 20 other myths about immigration
Chomsky, Aviva, 1957- author
Boston, Massachusetts : Beacon Press, [2018]
Part four. How have U.S. policies created immigration? Myth 14 : Immigrants only come here because they want to enjoy our higher standard of living -- Case study : the Philippines -- Part five. The debate at the turn of the millennium. Myth 15 : The American public opposes immigration, and the debate in Congress reflects that -- Myth 16 : The overwhelming victory of Proposition 187 in California shows that the public opposes immigration -- Myth 17 : Immigration is a problem -- Myth 18 : Countries need to control who goes in and out -- Myth 19 : We need to protect our borders to prevent criminals and terrorists from entering the country -- Myth 20 : If people break our laws by immigrating illegally, they are criminals and should be deported -- Myth 21 : The problems this book raises are so huge that there's nothing we can do about them -- Epilogue -- Timeline.

"Revised and expanded edition of the groundbreaking book which demystifies twenty-one of the most widespread myths and beliefs about immigrants and immigrations. In "They Take Our Jobs!" Aviva Chomsky challenges the underlying assumptions that fuel misinformed claims about immigrants, radically altering our notions of citizenship, discrimination, and U.S. history. Since it was first published, many of the same myths about immigration such as "immigrants take American jobs," "immigrants don't pay taxes," and "immigrants increase crime" continue to be perpetuated and used to promote aggressive anti-immigration policies. In a new introduction, Chomsky reflects on the events of the past ten years. She analyzes declining Mexican immigration patterns, illuminates Mexico's little-known Southern Border Program, and assesses Obama's complicated legacy as "deporter-in-chief" which, Chomsky argues, inadvertently laid the groundwork for Trump's anti-immigrant racism"--

Rules, paper, status : migrants and precarious bureaucracy in contemporary Italy
Tuckett, Anna, author
Stanford, California : Stanford University Press, [2018]
The center -- Working the gap : migrants' navigation of immigration bureaucracy -- The rules of rule bending -- Becoming an immigration adviser : self-fashioning through bureaucratic practice -- Disjuncture in the documentation regime : the second generation's challenge to citizenship law -- Stepping stone destinations : migration and disappointment.

"Whether motivated by humanitarianism or concern over 'porous' borders, dominant commentary on migration in Europe has consistently focused on clandestine border crossings. Much less, however, is known about the everyday workings of immigration law inside borders. Drawing on in-depth ethnographic fieldwork in Italy, one of Europe's biggest receiving countries, [this book] moves away from polarized depictions to reveal how migration processes actually play out on the ground. [The author] highlights the complex processes of inclusion and exclusion produced through encounters with immigration law. The statuses of 'legal' or 'illegal, ' which media and political accounts use as synonyms for 'good' and 'bad, ' 'worthy' and 'unworthy, ' are not created by practices of border-crossing, but rather through legal and bureaucratic processes within borders devised by governing states. Taking migrants' interactions with immigration regimes as its starting point, this book sheds light on the productive nature of legal and bureaucratic encounters and the unintended consequences they produce. [This book] argues that successfully navigating Italian immigration bureaucracy, which is situated in an immigration regime that is both exclusionary and flexible, requires and induces culturally specific modes of behavior. Exclusionary laws, however, can transform this social and cultural learning into the very thing that endangers migrants' right to live in the country."--

First, voter turnout tends to be significantly lower for municipal elections than it is for other levels of government. Second, the re-election rate of incumbent candidates is higher compared to provincial, territorial, and federal elections. Third, corruption and other scandals have tarnished the image of local democracy. Are cities sufficiently capable of responding to crises and representing the interests of their residents? Accountability and Responsiveness at the Municipal Level addresses these issues through qualitative and quantitative analysis, focusing on some of the most important characteristics of the Canadian municipal scene, including the contexts of partisanship and non-partisanship, the careers and daily work of municipal officials, and multilevel governance. This volume also assists directly to the collection and dissemination of data about cities as there is currently no centralized system for capturing and organizing electoral statistics at the municipal level. Municipal democracy in Canada suffers from a representation deficit. Accountability and Responsiveness at the Municipal Level is an important first step in building high-quality comparative information on the politics of Canada's cities."--
