A Century of Arab Politics: From the Arab Revolt to the Arab Spring

Bruce Maddy-Weitzman

A Century of Arab Politics: From the Arab Revolt to the Arab Spring by Bruce Maddy-WeitzmanFrom the “Great Arab Revolt” against Ottoman rule in World War I to the upheavals of the Arab Spring, this text analyzes a century of modern Arab history through the lens of three intertwined notions: the idea of a single Arab nation, the reality of multiple Arab states, and the competition between them over both concrete and symbolic interests. These concepts are presented against the background of Great Power involvement in the region, regional issues such as the Arab-Israeli conflict and the Iran-Iraq war, and the rise of political Islam.

Ali A. Mazrui & Francis Wiafe-Amoako

African Institutions: Challenges to Political, Social, and Economic Foundations of Africa's Development by Ali A. Mazrui & Francis Wiafe-Amoako
Written by the leading scholar on African, this comprehensive text examines three key issue areas in Africa: politics, society, and economy. It demonstrates how the lack of consideration for domestic norms and societal realities explain the weaker institutions and lack of development on the African continent. The chapters examine critical issues such as gender, ethnicity and constitution development, legitimacy and the state, the correlation between abundant resources and instability, the dilemmas of political dynasties, international economic regimes and Africa??s economy, and more.

Democracy (Made in Taiwan): The 'Success' State as a Political Theory

Chih-Yu Shih

Democracy (Made in Taiwan): The 'Success' State as a Political Theory by Chih-Yu ShihWhile political scientists generally see Taiwan as a success state because of its economic modernization and political democratization, this book reinterprets Taiwan's success from the Confucian and postcolonial perspectives. Democracy (Made in Taiwan) uncovers the hegemonic construction of the myth of the "success state" and challenges political scientists to abandon both the liberal-centrism and state-centrism prevailing in the literature of democratization.

Vladimir Putin and the New World Order: Looking East, Looking West?

J. L. Black

Vladimir Putin and the New World Order: Looking East, Looking West? by J. L. BlackJ. L. Black's latest work is a rich and carefully crafted attempt to expose the textures of Russia's perceptions of itself and its place in the world.

Unfinished Revolutions: Yemen, Libya, and Tunisia after the Arab Spring

Ibrahim Fraihat

Unfinished Revolutions: Yemen, Libya, and Tunisia after the Arab Spring by Ibrahim FraihatPost-revolution states often find that once dictators have been deposed, other problems arise, such as political polarization and the threat of civil war. A respected commentator on Middle Eastern politics, Ibrahim Fraihat examines three countries grappling with political transitions in the wake of the Arab Spring: Yemen, Libya, and Tunisia. Drawing on extensive research and interviews, Fraihat argues that to attain enduring peace and stability, post-revolution states must engage in inclusive national reconciliation processes with the support of women, civil society, and tribes.

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 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.

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....

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...
