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.

A Clen House? Studies of Corruption in Sweden

Andreas Bergh & Gissur Erlingsson

A Clen House? Studies of Corruption in Sweden by Andreas Bergh & Gissur ErlingssonIn virtually all popular indices and scales measuring bribery and dishonesty on a national level, Sweden performs strongly with its quality of rule of law and absence of corruption. But does this automatically imply that this "least sickly" patient can be declared perfectly healthy? By extensively reviewing existing research and consulting various sources of data, the authors of "A Clean House?" attempt to unpack the Swedish case. What do we know about corruption in Sweden, and what can be said of such affairs over time in the country? The four scholars of political science demonstrate that...

A Comparative Introduction to Political Science: Contention and Cooperation

Alan G. Smith

A Ruined Fortress? Neoliberal Hegemony and Transformation in Europe

Alan W. Cafruny

A Ruined Fortress? Neoliberal Hegemony and Transformation in Europe by Alan W. CafrunyArguing convincingly that mainstream theory lacks the tools to adequately explain European integration, this challenging book draws upon critical political economic theory to develop a more comprehensive and consistent analysis of the processes of integration. Although not claiming that states have ceded their role as "masters of the treaties," the contributors develop innovative case studies of national and transnational processes to illustrate the salience of trans-European business networks and the primacy of neoliberalism as central organizing concepts of the post-Maastricht European project....

An Uncanny Era: Conversations Between Vaclav Havel and Adam Michnik

Elzbieta Matynia

An Uncanny Era: Conversations Between Vaclav Havel and Adam Michnik by Elzbieta MatyniaCzech playwright and dissident Vaclav Havel first encountered Polish historian and dissident Adam Michnik in 1978 at a clandestine meeting on a mountaintop along the Polish-Czechoslovak border. This initial meeting of two extraordinary thinkers who "plotted" democracy, and designed an effective peaceful strategy for dismantling authoritarian regimes in Central and Eastern Europe, resulted in a lifelong friendship and an extraordinary set of bold conversations conducted over the next two postrevolutionary decades.

Havel, president of Czechoslovakia and later the Czech Republic, and Michnik, editor-in-chief...

Beyond Realism: Human Security in India and Pakistan in the Twenty-First Century

Rekha Datta

Beyond Realism: Human Security in India and Pakistan in the Twenty-First Century by Rekha DattaAs the world is changing, many scholars, analysts, and policy makers agree that even as governments need to confront external threats, creating sustainable domestic environments is imperative as a policy priority. As events surrounding September 11, 2001continue to remind us, marginalized sections of the population can become breeding grounds for dissatisfaction, disenchantment, and eventually, targets for terrorist groups. Throughout the cold war period, South Asia served as a strategic region in the bilateral rivalry between the United States and the former Soviet Union, coupled with China's...

Blair, Labour, and Palestine: Conflicting Views on Middle East Peace After 9/11

Toby Greene

Blair, Labour, and Palestine: Conflicting Views on Middle East Peace After 9/11 by Toby GreeneMany of Tony Blair's policy decisions in the Israeli-Palestinian arena were controversial and politically costly. Blair, Labour and Palestine argues that gaps between him and much of his party were rooted in different world views. A positive attitude towards Israel came to be seen as a defining mark of New Labour loyalists. However, contrasting views among left-leaning strands in the party reflected a broader set of ideological rifts. Such differences became increasingly significant in the wake of 9/11 as British policymakers sought to understand and respond to Islamic anger against the West....

Bridging the Information Gap: Legislative Member Organizations as Social Networks in the United States and the European Union

Nils Ringe & Jennifer Nicoll Victor

Bridging the Information Gap: Legislative Member Organizations as Social Networks in the United States and the European Union by Nils Ringe & Jennifer Nicoll VictorLegislative member organizations (LMOs)-such as caucuses in the U.S. Congress and intergroups in the European Parliament-exist in lawmaking bodies around the world. Unlike parties and committees, LMOs play no obvious, predefined role in the legislative process. They provide legislators with opportunities to establish social networks with colleagues who share common interests. In turn, such networks offer valuable opportunities for the efficient exchange of policy-relevant-and sometimes otherwise unattainable-information between legislative offices. Building on classic insights from the study...

Brussels Versus the Beltway: Advocacy in the United States and the European Union by Christine Mahoney

This book presents the first large-scale study of lobbying strategies and outcomes in the United States and the European Union, two of the most powerful political systems in the world. Every day, tens of thousands of lobbyists in Washington and Brussels are working to protect and promote their interests in the policymaking process.
