Olympic Cities: 2012 and the Remaking of London

Iain MacRury

Olympic Cities: 2012 and the Remaking of London by Iain MacRuryDrawing upon historical, cultural, economic and socio-demographic perspectives, this book examines the role of a sporting mega-event in promoting urban regeneration and social renewal.

It evaluates the changing perceptions of the Olympic Games and the role of sport in the global media age in general and assesses the implication of 'mega-event' regeneration policies for local communities and their cultural,...

Citizenship

Antonino Palumbo

Citizenship by Antonino PalumboInterest in citizenship has never been greater. Politicians of all stripes stress its importance, as do church leaders, captains of industry and every kind of campaigning group. Yet, despite this popularity, the nature and even the very possibility of citizenship has never been more contested. Is citizenship intrinsically linked to political participation or is it essentially a legal status? Does it require membership of a state, or is it only post-national, trans- and possibly supra-national? Is it a universal value that should be the same for all, or does it need to recognise gender and cultural...

Globalization, Democratization and Asian Leadership: Power Sharing, Foreign Policy and Society in the Philippines and Japan

Vincent Kelly Pollard

Globalization, Democratization and Asian Leadership: Power Sharing, Foreign Policy and Society in the Philippines and Japan by Vincent Kelly PollardThe foreign policies of presidents, prime ministers and their foreign secretaries can be influenced by the preferences of domestic and international nongovernmental actors, as well as those of other governments. Representative democracy, media power, citizen activism and the globalization of politics and telecommunications, for example, have accelerated changes in the sharing of power. This book focuses on the Philippines and Japan where, willingly and unwillingly, foreign policy executives share power with individuals and groups inside and outside of government bureaucracies and their societies....

From Government to Governance

Antonino Palumbo

From Government to Governance by Antonino PalumboNeoliberal reforms and globalization have deeply transformed the state and set in motion a momentous shift from 'government' to 'governance'. Governance entails a move away from traditional hierarchical forms of organization and the adoption of network forms. It also entails a revision of the relationship between state and civil society in a more participatory direction. Governance is finally said to be responsible for shifting the emphasis away from statute law to more flexible forms of regulation and implementation. The state is thus claimed to be superseded by a 'networked polity' where authority...

China's Foreign Policy Making: Societal Force and Chinese American Policy

Lin Su

Against Global Capitalism: African Social Movements Confront Neoliberal Globalization

E. Osei Kwadwo Prempeh

Against Global Capitalism: African Social Movements Confront Neoliberal Globalization by E. Osei Kwadwo PrempehThe fundamental challenge of democratizing globalization by opening up spaces for democratic participation beyond the state is addressed in this study. The author captures both the democratic activities and voices of opposition to neoliberal globalization and investigates how this reinvention of democracy through resistance to neoliberal globalization has taken shape in the African context. In doing so, he reasserts the relevance of the de-globalization and anti-capitalism movements. With a careful selection of case studies, this volume is ideal for classroom use and library reference.

US Foreign Policy Towards the Middle East: The Realpolitik of Deceit

Bernd Kaussler & Glenn P. Hastedt

US Foreign Policy Towards the Middle East: The Realpolitik of Deceit by Bernd Kaussler & Glenn P. Hastedt

This book offers a realist critique of US foreign policy towards the Middle East in the past decade.

It critically examines four core foundations of contemporary US Middle East policy: US relations with Saudi Arabia after the Arab Spring; US diplomacy towards Iran and the Obama administration's policy of engagement; the road to, and aftermath of, the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq; and US policy towards nuclear-armed Israel. Because of a closely guarded bipartisan consensus, these four core foundations of contemporary US Middle East policy have largely evaded public criticism and scrutiny. This...

Frank Ennis

By drawing together a range of case studies from North America, Australia and Europe, this book compares how a number of planning systems deal with this issue.

In line with the aims of the series, this valuable new book: · presents a historical overview of the causes and legacy of Afghanistan's internal...
