Intelligence Governance and Democratisation: A Comparative Analysis of the Limits of Reform

Intelligence Governance and Democratisation: A Comparative Analysis of the Limits of Reform by Peter Gill

This book analyses changes in intelligence governance and offers a comparative analysis of intelligence democratisation.

Within the field of Security Sector Reform (SSR), academics have paid significant attention to both the police and military. The democratisation of intelligence structures that are at the very heart of authoritarian regimes, however, have been relatively ignored. The central aim of this book is to develop a conceptual framework for the specific analytical challenges posed by intelligence as a field of governance. Using examples from Latin America and Europe, it examines the...

A Comparative Introduction to Political Science: Contention and Cooperation

A Comparative Introduction to Political Science: Contention and Cooperation by Alan G. SmithWhen do legislators tend to cast votes in cooperation with their parties and when do they go their own way?

Thematically arranged around the interplay of contention and cooperation, A Comparative Introduction to Political Science encourages students to explore causal factors and consequences related to political phenomena in order to become knowledgeable and resourceful citizens of their nations and the world. Emphasizing real-world politics, the author includes two country studies at the end of each...

The Right in Latin America: Elite Power, Hegemony and the Struggle for the State

The Right in Latin America: Elite Power, Hegemony and the Struggle for the State by Barry Cannon

Most current analysis on Latin American politics has been directed at examining the shift to the left in the region. Very little attention, however, has been paid to the reactions of the right to this phenomenon. What kind of discursive, policy, and strategic responses have emerged among the right in Latin America as a result of this historic turn to the left? Have there been any shifts in attitudes to inequality and poverty as a result of the successes of the left in those areas? How has the right responded strategically to regain the political initiative from the left? And what implications...

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

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.

African Institutions: Challenges to Political, Social, and Economic Foundations of Africa's Development

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

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?

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. Based almost entirely on Russian sources, Vladimir Putin and the New World Order argues that to understand Russian foreign policymaking, international situations must be viewed through the prism of Russian analysts and officials.

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

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.

Challenges of the Developing World

Challenges of the Developing World by Howard HandelmanFor many Westerners, the challenges faced by Less Developed Countries, or LDCs, seem remote until a major event bursts into the news and demands our attention, such as the rise of the Islamic State and the Syrian civil war.

Challenges of the Developing World explores the people, struggles, and triumphs of development in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Reputation and International Cooperation: Sovereign Debt across Three Centuries

Reputation and International Cooperation: Sovereign Debt across Three Centuries by Michael Tomz

How does cooperation emerge in a condition of international anarchy? Michael Tomz sheds new light on this fundamental question through a study of international debt across three centuries. Tomz develops a reputational theory of cooperation between sovereign governments and foreign investors. He explains how governments acquire reputations in the eyes of investors, and argues that concerns about reputation sustain international lending and repayment.

Tomz's theory generates novel predictions about the dynamics of cooperation: how investors treat first-time borrowers, how access to credit evolves...

A Constitutional Democracy: Voices and Votes

A Constitutional Democracy: Voices and Votes by Edward Delon

Consent to be governed includes rights and responsibilities of the citizenry to ensure that freedom, justice, and equality prevail over narrowed special interests.

This book addresses constitutional principles, national security, immigration, domestic and global economic issues, foreign affairs, and the Electoral College. The overarching goal is to motivate the reader to become...

How Armies Respond to Revolutions and Why

How Armies Respond to Revolutions and Why by Zoltan Barany

We know that a revolution's success largely depends on the army's response to it. But can we predict the military's reaction to an uprising? How Armies Respond to Revolutions and Why argues that it is possible to make a highly educated guess??"and in some cases even a confident prediction??"about the generals' response to a domestic revolt if we know enough about the army, the state it is supposed to serve, the society in which it exists, and the external environment that affects its actions. Through concise case studies of modern uprisings in Iran, China, Eastern Europe, Burma, and the Arab...

Language and Identity Politics: A Cross-Atlantic Perspective

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

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.

Eroding Military Influence in Brazil: Politicians Against Soldiers

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...
