Language and Identity Politics: A Cross-Atlantic Perspective

Christina Spati

Language and Identity Politics: A Cross-Atlantic Perspective by Christina Spati In an increasingly multicultural world, the relationship between language and identity remains a complicated and often fraught subject for most societies. The growing political salience of questions relating to language is evident not only in the expanded implementation of new policies and legislation, but also in heated public debates about national unity, collective identities, and the rights of linguistic minorities. By taking a comprehensive approach that considers both the inclusive and exclusive dimensions of linguistic identity across Europe and North America, the studies assembled here...

Crafting Civilian Control of the Military in Venezuela: A Comparative Perspective

Harold A. Trinkunas

Crafting Civilian Control of the Military in Venezuela: A Comparative Perspective by Harold A. TrinkunasUnlike most other emerging South American democracies, Venezuela has not succumbed to a successful military coup d'etat during four decades of democratic rule. What drives armed forces to follow the orders of elected leaders? And how do emerging democracies gain that control over their military establishments? Harold Trinkunas answers these questions in an examination of Venezuela's transition to democracy following military rule and its attempts to institutionalize civilian control of the military over the past sixty years, a period that included three regime changes.

Trinkunas first focuses...

Eroding Military Influence in Brazil: Politicians Against Soldiers

Wendy Hunter

Eroding Military Influence in Brazil: Politicians Against Soldiers by Wendy HunterWendy Hunter explores civil-military relations in Brazil following the transition to civilian leadership in 1985. She documents a marked, and surprising, decline in the political power of the armed forces, even as they have remained involved in national policy making. To account for the success of civilian politicians, Hunter invokes rational-choice theory in arguing that politicians will contest even powerful forces in order to gain widespread electoral support.

Many observers expected Brazil's fledgling democracy to remain under the firm direction of the military, which had tightly controlled...

Timothy P. R. Weaver

Blazing the Neoliberal Trail: Urban Political Development in the United States and the United Kingdom by Timothy P. R. Weaver

Blazing the Neoliberal Trail asks how and why urban policy and politics have become dominated, over the past three decades, by promarket thinking. Drawing on extensive archival research, Timothy P. R. Weaver shows how elites became persuaded by neoliberal ideas and remade political institutions in their image.

Very British Rebels? The Culture and Politics of Ulster Loyalism

James White McAuley

Very British Rebels? The Culture and Politics of Ulster Loyalism by James White McAuleyChallenging traditional narrow views, this unique work proposes to rethink and reinterpret Ulster loyalism from the beginning of the "Troubles" to the present day, by tracing its religious, paramilitary, political, and community influences.

The work examines the core values of loyalist communities, the roots of violence, and the shift toward peaceful coexistence with former enemies. Also discussed are the DUP's claims that it represents loyalism's "true voice" along with the complex and varying degrees of commitment to the Crown, the Protestant Faith, and the British governance of Northern Ireland....

Dr. Federico V?lez

Latin American Revolutionaries and the Arab World: From the Suez Canal to the Arab Spring by Dr. Federico V?lezRecounting recent encounters between Latin American and Arab countries this unique volume explores how, despite both geographical and cultural distances, Latin American revolutionaries constructed an image of the Arab World as one sharing their own political views and interests. From the nationalization of the Suez Canal to Latin American perspectives on the Arab Spring Federico VĂ©lez offers a fascinating historical and contemporary analysis on the behaviour of actors on the periphery of the international system. Contributing to debates regarding ideological and political autonomy the book...

US Climate Change Policy

Christopher J. Professor Bailey

US Climate Change Policy by Christopher J. Professor BaileyThe United States is often perceived as sceptical, if not hostile, to the need to address man-made climate change. US government policy has undoubtedly disappointed environmentalists and scientists who believe more concerted action is needed, but a careful examination of the evidence reveals a number of policy actions designed to investigate, mitigate, and adapt to climate change have been implemented. Laws, regulatory action, and court rulings have led to advances in climate science, action to reduce levels of greenhouse gas emissions and efforts to prepare for the potential consequences of...

Why Nations Realign: Foreign Policy Restructuring in the Postwar World

K. J. Holsti

Why Nations Realign: Foreign Policy Restructuring in the Postwar World by K. J. HolstiThis book, originally published in 1982, analyzes the process of radical foreign policy change - how states restructure their foreign relations, and why they do so. Using a common analystical framework, the authors examine Bhutan, Burma, Canada, Child, China and Tanzania. They distinguish between piecemeal foreign policy change and adaptation, and the fundamental re-ordering of foreign policy. Their analysis underlines the extent to which non-military and sometimes imagined threats, such as dependency and external economic and cultural penetration, can constitute an important cause of radical...

Marxism-Leninism and the Theory of International Relations

V. Kubalkova & A. Cruickshank

Marxism-Leninism and the Theory of International Relations by V. Kubalkova & A. Cruickshank

Refuting the assumption that orthodox Marxist theory contains anything of relevance on international relations, this book, originally published in 1980, clarifies, reconstructs, and summarizes the theories of international relations of Marx and Engels, Lenin, Stalin and the Soviet leadership of the 1970s. These are subjected to a comparative analysis and their relative integrity is examined both against one another and against selected Western theories. Marxist-Leninist models of international relations are fully explored, enabling the reader to appreciate the essence and evolution of fundamental...

Radical Right Parties in Central and Eastern Europe: Mainstream Party Competition and Electoral Fortune

Bartek Pytlas

Radical Right Parties in Central and Eastern Europe: Mainstream Party Competition and Electoral Fortune by Bartek Pytlas

In Central and Eastern Europe, radical right actors significantly impact public debates and mainstream policy agenda. But despite this high discursive influence, the electoral fortune of radical right parties in the region is much less stable. It has been suggested that this may be due to the fact that mainstream competitors increasingly co-opt issues which are fundamental for the radical right. However, the extent to which such tactics play a role in radical right electoral success and failure is still a subject for debate.

This book is the first to provide a systematic theoretical framework...

Democratic Latin America

Craig Arceneaux

Democratic Latin America by Craig Arceneaux

Drawing on new approaches in comparative politics, Democratic Latin America focuses on analyzing political institutions as a way to assess broader trends in the region's politics, including the rise of democracy.

The text looks at the major institutions-executive, legislature, judiciary, military, and more-in 18 democratic countries to not only provide an expansive view of politics in Latin America but to also facilitate cross-national comparison. Democratic Latin America uniquely surveys the "what" of the region's politics as well as the "why" and "how" to help students critically consider Latin...

The Political Economy of Border Drawing: Arranging Legality in European Labor Migration Policies

Regine Paul

The Political Economy of Border Drawing: Arranging Legality in European Labor Migration Policies by Regine PaulThe conditions for non-EU migrant workers to gain legal entry to Britain, France, and Germany are at the same time similar and quite different. To explain this variation this book compares the fine-grained legal categories for migrant workers in each country, and examines the interaction of economic, social, and cultural rationales in determining migrant legality. Rather than investigating the failure of borders to keep unauthorized migrants out, the author highlights the different policies of each country as "border-drawing" actions. Policymakers draw lines between different migrant groups,...

The Hidden History of Crime, Corruption, and States

Renate Bridenthal

The Hidden History of Crime, Corruption, and States by Renate BridenthalRenowned historical sociologist Charles Tilly wrote many years ago that "banditry, piracy, gangland rivalry, policing, and war-making all belong on the same continuum." This volume pursues the idea by revealing how lawbreakers and lawmakers have related to one another on the shadowy terrains of power over wide stretches of time and space. Illicit activities and forces have been more important in state building and state maintenance than conventional histories have acknowledged. Covering vast chronological and global terrain, this book traces the contested and often overlapping boundaries between...

The Community of States: A Study in International Political Theory

The Community of States: A Study in International Political Theory by James Mayall

This volume is a successor volume to The Reason of States. Part 1 discusses ways in which to understand the nature, possibility and limits of community beyond the state. Specific chapters are devoted to the practical attempts of statesmen, lawyers, strategists and economists to devise morally defensible international policies on the basis of interest. Part 3 challenges the conventional morality of states from alternative standpoints: Kantian morality, a reconsideration of the contemporary relevance of natural law, an examination of the concept of responsibility in international politics and...
