Community, Competition and Citizen Science: Voluntary Distributed Computing in a Globalized World

Anne Holohan

Community, Competition and Citizen Science: Voluntary Distributed Computing in a Globalized World by Anne HolohanVoluntary distributed computing projects divide large computational tasks into small pieces of data or work that are sent out over the Internet to be processed by individual users, who participate voluntarily in order to provide solutions that would ordinarily require investments of millions of dollars. This approach is contributing to the transformation of computationally heavy scientific research, opening up participation in science to interested lay people and greatly reducing the cost-barriers to computation for financially challenged researchers. Drawing on face-to-face and online ethnographic,...

Policy Change under New Democratic Capitalism

Hideko Magara

Policy Change under New Democratic Capitalism by Hideko Magara

Democratic capitalism in developed countries has been facing an unprecedented crisis since 2008. Its political manageability is declining sharply. Both democracy and capitalism now involve crucial risks that are significantly more serious than those observed in earlier periods. The notion of policy regimes has gained new significance in analysing the possibilities for a post-neoliberal alternative. Policy innovations directed towards an economic breakthrough require both political leadership and a new economic theory. The processes of political decision making have become quite distant from...

Globalization and India's Economic Integration

Baldev Raj Nayar

Globalization and India's Economic Integration by Baldev Raj NayarA common critique of globalization is that it causes economic segmentation and even disintegration of the national economy. Baldev Raj Nayar's examination of India's political economy challenges this critique by demonstrating that, on balance, the active role of the Indian state in the areas of economic planning, fiscal federalism, and tax reform, and the inherently expanding character of the market in areas such as trade, investment, entrepreneurship, and migration have resulted in improved economic integration and not increased segmentation. While globalization has its benefits, such as higher...

The Underside of Politics: Global Fictions in the Fog of the Cold War

Sorin Cucu

The Underside of Politics: Global Fictions in the Fog of the Cold War by Sorin CucuThis book explores the relation between nationhood, literary culture and globalism in the context of the Cold War struggle over the legacy of European modernity, a struggle to represent diverse experiences of the political, after World War II and colonialism. This book argues that, during the Cold War, modern political imagination is held captive by the split between two visions of universality -- freedom in the West vs. social justice in the East -- and by a culture of secrecy that ties national identity to national security. The significance of Cold War political modernity is made evident...

Growth against Democracy: Savage Developmentalism in the Modern World

H. L. T. Quan

Growth against Democracy: Savage Developmentalism in the Modern World by H. L. T. QuanGrowth against Democracy: Savage Developmentalism in the Modern World, by H.L.T. Quan, is a radical critique of development as a modern project. Using three historical cases (Brazil-Japan, China-Africa, and US-Iraq), Quan probes the discursive practices of modern development, exploring the coercive and juridical dimensions of trade, diplomacy and war and their impact. This study builds on the critical works of neoliberalism, capitalist development, and empire to lay the groundwork for an honest assessment of neoliberal economics and foreign conducts and their impact on human life.

On a human level, what does such an enormous degree of debt and insolvency mean? In this timely book, cultural critic Richard Dienst considers the financial crisis, global poverty, media politics and radical theory to parse the various implications of a world where man is born free but everywhere is in debt.

Globalization and the Health of Indigenous Peoples: From Colonization to Self-Rule

Globalization and the Health of Indigenous Peoples: From Colonization to Self-Rule by Ahsan Ullah

In 70 countries worldwide, there is an estimated 370 million indigenous peoples, and their rich diversity of cultures, religions, traditions, languages and histories has been significant source of our scholarships. However, the health status of this population group is far below than that of non-indigenous populations by all standards. Could the persisting reluctance to understand the influence of self-governance, globalization and social determinants of health in the lives of these people be deemed as a contributor to the poor health of indigenous peoples?

Within this volume, Ullah explores...

Refugees in Extended Exile: Living on the Edge

Jennifer Hyndman & Wenona Giles

Refugees in Extended Exile: Living on the Edge by Jennifer Hyndman & Wenona Giles

This book argues that the international refugee regime and its 'temporary' humanitarian interventions have failed. Most refugees across the global live in 'protracted' conditions that extend from years to decades, without legal status that allows them to work and establish a home. It is contended that they become largely invisible to people based in the global North, and cease to remain fully human subjects with access to their political lives. Shifting the conversation away from the salient discourse of 'solutions' and technical fixes within state-centric international relations, the authors...

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 Stigmatized Vernacular: Where Reflexivity Meets Untellability by Diane E.

Here we address our own perspectives as researchers struggling with stigma issues and tellability, as well as scholarly reflexive concerns dealing with what can't be said when working with stigmatized groups or topics. The disciplinary focus of folklore positions us well to concentrate on the vernacular experience of the stigmatized, but it also propels us toward analysis of the performance of stigma, the process of stigmatization, and...

Handbook of Neoliberalism

Simon Springer

Handbook of Neoliberalism by Simon Springer

Neoliberalism is easily one of the most powerful discourses toemerge within the social sciences in the last two decades, and the number of scholars who write about this dynamic and unfolding process of socio-spatial transformation is
astonishing. Even more surprising though is that there has, until now, not been an attempt to provide a wide-ranging volume that engages with the multiple registers in which neoliberalism has evolved.

Drug Trafficking and International Security

Paul Rexton Kan

Drug Trafficking and International Security by Paul Rexton KanEach chapter examines how drug trafficking affects a particular security issue, such as rogue nations, weak and failing states, protracted intrastate conflicts, terrorism, transnational crime, public health, and cyber security. While some texts see drug trafficking as an international threat in itself, others place it under the topic of transnational organized crime, arguing that the threats emanate from criminal groups. This book, on the other hand, provides a thorough understanding of how vast array of threats to international security are exacerbated by drug trafficking.

Jeffrey S. Rothstein

When Good Jobs Go Bad: Globalization, De-unionization, and Declining Job Quality in the North American Auto Industry by Jeffrey S. RothsteinIn When Good Jobs Go Bad, Jeffrey Rothstein looks at the impact of globalization on workers in the North American auto industry, revealing that globalization has had a deleterious effect on even the most valued of blue-collar jobs. Rothstein shows how the consolidation of the Mexican and U.S.-Canadian auto industries, the expanding number of foreign automakers in North America, and the spread of lean production have all undermined organized labor and harmed workers.

Nepali Migrant Women: Resistance and Survival in America

Shobha Hamal Gurung

Nepali Migrant Women: Resistance and Survival in America by Shobha Hamal Gurung

In this pathbreaking and timely work, Hamal Gurung gives voice to the growing
number of Nepali women who migrate to the United States to work in the informal
economy. Highlighting the experiences of thirty-five women, mostly college

jobs, Hamal Gurung challenges conventional portraits of Third World women
as victims forced into low-wage employment. Instead, she sheds light on Nepali
women's strategic decisions to accept downwardly mobile positions in order to
earn more income, thereby achieving greater agency in their home...

The Mobilities Paradigm: Discourses and Ideologies

Marcel Endres

The Mobilities Paradigm: Discourses and Ideologies by Marcel EndresOver the last two decades, the conceptualisation and empirical analysis of mobilities of people, objects and symbols has become an important strand of social science. Yet, the increasing importance of mobilities in all parts of the social does not only happen as observable practices in the material world but also takes place against the background of changing discourses, scientific theories and conceptualisations and knowledge. Within the formation of these mobilities discourses, the social sciences constitute a relevant actor. Focussing on mobility as an object of knowledge from a Foucauldian...
