Muslim Democratic Parties in the Middle East: Economy and Politics of Islamist Moderation

A. Kadir Yildirim

Muslim Democratic Parties in the Middle East: Economy and Politics of Islamist Moderation by A. Kadir YildirimA.Kadir Yildirim and other scholars have used the term "Muslim Democrat" to describe moderate Islamist political parties, suggesting a parallel with Christian Democratic parties in Europe. These parties (MDPs) are marked by their adherence to a secular political regime, normative commitment to the rules of a democratic political system, and the democratic political representation of a religious identity. In this book, Yildirim draws on extensive field research in Turkey, Egypt, and Morocco to examine this phenomenon and assess the interaction of economic and political factors in the development...

The Trouble with History: Morality, Revolution, and Counterrevolution

Adam Michnik

The Trouble with History: Morality, Revolution, and Counterrevolution by Adam MichnikRenowned Eastern European author Adam Michnik was jailed for more than six years by the communist regime in Poland for his dissident activities. He was an outspoken voice for democracy in the world divided by the Iron Curtain and has remained so to the present day. In this thoughtful and provocative work, the man the Financial Times named "one of the 20 most influential journalists in the world" strips fundamentalism of its religious component and examines it purely as a secular political phenomenon.
 
Comparing modern-day Poland with postrevolutionary France, Michnik offers a stinging critique...

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....

Alex Mintz

They discuss the problem and set the stage for nine chapters by diverse scholars to demonstrate innovative new developments in IR theory and creative new methods that can lay the basis for greater consensus.

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.

How Russia is Not Ruled

Allen C. Lynch

How Russia is Not Ruled by Allen C. LynchThe state remains as important to Russia's prospects as ever. This is so not only because, as in any society, an effectively functioning state administration is necessary to the proper functioning of a complex economy and legal system, but also because, in Russian circumstances, factors of economic geography tend to increase costs of production compared to the rest of the world. These mutually reinforcing factors include: the extreme severity of the climate, the immense distances to be covered, the dislocation between (European) population centers and (Siberian) natural resource centers, and...

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...

Disaster and the Politics of Intervention

Andrew Lakoff

Disaster and the Politics of Intervention by Andrew Lakoff

Government plays a critical role in mitigating individual and collective vulnerability to disaster. Through measures such as disaster relief, infrastructure development, and environmental regulation, public policy is central to making societies more resilient. However, the recent drive to replace public institutions with market mechanisms has challenged governmental efforts to manage collective risk. The contributors to this volume analyze the respective roles of the public and private sectors in the management of catastrophic risk, addressing questions such as: How should homeland security...

As'Ad Abukhalil

In this unsparing probe into the history and power structure of the kingdom, Professor AbuKhalil, author of Bin Laden, Islam, and America's New "War on Terrorism", affords the reader unique insight into the intense friction that underlies the increasingly precarious balance between...

Seeking Changes: Political Development in Contemporary China

Authors Various

Seeking Changes: Political Development in Contemporary China by Authors VariousChina's revolutionary attempt to transition to socialism was an economic disaster. Since adopting elements of an open market policy in the 1970s, China has doubled its GDP every decade, and has lifted 400 million people out of absolute poverty. But as renowned social historian Arif Dirlik keenly observed that in China, "Post-socialism is of necessity also post-capitalist." As the wealth of the country continues to accumulate, the Chinese Communist Party is increasingly concerned about updating the tenets of Karl Marx's ideology to create a uniquely Chinese-styled Harmonious Socialist Society....

The Americanization of France: Searching for Happiness after the Algerian War

Barnett Singer

The Americanization of France: Searching for Happiness after the Algerian War by Barnett SingerThis engaging, knowledgeable book traces the American path France has followed since resolving its searing Algerian conflict in 1962. Barnett Singer convincingly demolishes two pervasive clichés about modern France: first, that the country has never been fit to fight wars, including wars on terror; and second, that the French have always been and remain overwhelmingly anti-American. The end of the war led to an important sea change, clearing the way for France to embrace American culture, especially rock 'n' roll, and more generally, an American-style emphasis on personal happiness.

Never Allow A Crisis To Go To Waste: Barack Obama and the Evolution of American Socialism demonstrates why the American people are right.

Author and attorney Bart DePalma explains how socialism evolved after the collapse of the Soviet Union from classical state ownership of the means of production into a new asymmetric form - using progressive tools to achieve socialist ends, while misrepresenting the...
