Navigating the Transnational in Modern American Literature and Culture: Axes of Influence

Tara Stubbs

Navigating the Transnational in Modern American Literature and Culture: Axes of Influence by Tara StubbsThis study develops the important work carried out on American literature through the frameworks of transnational, transatlantic, and trans-local studies to ask what happens when these same aspects become intrinsic to the critical narrative. Much cultural criticism since the 1990s has sought to displace perceptions of American exceptionalism with broader notions of Atlanticism, transnationalism, world-system, and trans-localism as each has redefined the US and the world more generally. This collection shows how the remapping of America in terms of global networks, and as a set of particular...

Planet Utopia: Utopia, Dystopia, and Globalisation

Planet Utopia: Utopia, Dystopia, and Globalisation by Mark Featherstone

The key figure of the capitalist utopia is the individual who is ultimately free. The capitalist's ideal society is designed to protect this freedom. However, within Planet Utopia: Utopia, Dystopia, Globalisation, Featherstone argues that capitalist utopian vision, which is most clearly expressed in theories of global finance, is no longer sustainable today.

This book concerns the status of utopian thinking in contemporary global society and the possibility of imagining alternative ways of living outside of capitalism. Using a range of sociological and philosophical theories to write the first...

Public Disorder and Globalization

Sophie Body-Gendrot

Public Disorder and Globalization by Sophie Body-Gendrot

The current growth of incidents of public disorder around the world can be seen as symptomatic of major transformations in globalized society, government, and technology. But while disorder is routinely perceived as a disturbing phenomenon, it can also be a catalyst for positive transformation and regeneration. As social media is increasingly used as a platform for mobilization and organization, local disorder may spread outward through national borders, receiving international coverage and visibility as well as triggering a domino effect of global unrest.

Combining qualitative and quantitative...

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...

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.

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.

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

Ahsan Ullah

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...

We all sense it-something big is going on. You feel it in your workplace. You feel it when you talk to your kids. You can't miss it when you read the newspapers or watch the news. Our lives are being transformed in so many realms all at once-and it is dizzying.

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

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 Stigmatized Vernacular: Where Reflexivity Meets Untellability

Diane E. Goldstein

The Stigmatized Vernacular: Where Reflexivity Meets Untellability by Diane E. GoldsteinAs part of this multilayered conversation about stigma, this volume discusses the relationship between the stigmatized individual and our role as researchers. 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...
