Latin America and the Shifting Sands of Globalization

Latin America and the Shifting Sands of Globalization by Sean W. Burges

Latin America occupies an increasingly prominent position within the global political, economic and cultural consciousness, with intra-regional governance structures and multilateral processes now a key topic of interest to foreign policy and international business circles. It has become abundantly clear that outside of Latin America there is a poor understanding of how the shifting sands of regional power are impacting, not only on how regional countries fit into the global system, but also on how intra-regional relations are viewed and managed. The contributions to this collection investigate...

Seed Sovereignty, Food Security: Women in the Vanguard of the Fight against GMOs and Corporate Agriculture

Seed Sovereignty, Food Security: Women in the Vanguard of the Fight against GMOs and Corporate Agriculture by Vandana ShivaIn this unique anthology, women from around the world write about the movement to change the current, industrial paradigm of how we grow our food. As seed keepers and food producers, as scientists, activists, and scholars, they are dedicated to renewing a food system that is better aligned with ecological processes as well as human health and global social justice. Seed Sovereignty, Food Security is an argument for just that--a reclaiming of traditional methods of agricultural practice in order to secure a healthy, nourishing future for all of us.

Readings in the International Relations of Africa

Readings in the International Relations of Africa by Tom YoungThese readings in international relations in Africa grapple with the continent's changing place in the world. The essays confront issues such as the increasing tempo of armed conflict, the tendency of Western states and agencies to intervene in African settings, the presence of China, and the health of African states and their ability to participate in the global economy. Questions regarding sovereignty, leading regional actors, conflict and resolution, and the neoliberal African renaissance add to the broad thematic coverage presented in this timely volume.

Paprika, Foie Gras, and Red Mud: The Politics of Materiality in the European Union

Paprika, Foie Gras, and Red Mud: The Politics of Materiality in the European Union by Zsuzsa GilleIn this original and provocative study, Zsuzsa Gille examines three scandals that have shaken Hungary since it joined the European Union: the 2004 ban on paprika due to contamination, the 2008 boycott of Hungarian foie gras by Austrian animal rights activists, and the "red mud" spill of 2010, Hungary's worst environmental disaster. In each case, Gille analyzes how practices of production and consumption were affected by the proliferation of new standards and regulations that came with entry into the EU. She identifies a new modality of power-the materialization of politics, or achieving political...

Democracy by Decree: Prospects and Limits of Imposed Consociational Democracy in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Democracy by Decree: Prospects and Limits of Imposed Consociational Democracy in Bosnia and Herzegovina by Adis MerdzanovicThe introduction of consociational power sharing as a post-war political system has become one of the international community's preferred post-conflict devices. In situations where warring polities are internally divided by ethnic, religious, linguistic, or national identity, consociationalism guarantees the inclusion of all groups in the political process and prevents a ‘tyranny' of the majority over one or more minorities. However, if international actors keep intervening in the political process, the advantages of consociationalism are turned upside down.

In this exceptional book, Adis Merdzanovic...

Global Heartland: Displaced Labor, Transnational Lives, and Local Placemaking

Global Heartland: Displaced Labor, Transnational Lives, and Local Placemaking by Faranak MiraftabGlobal Heartland is the account of diverse, dispossessed, and displaced people brought together in a former sundown town in Illinois. Recruited to work in the local meat-processing plant, African Americans, Mexicans, and West Africans re-create the town in unexpected ways. Drawing on ethnographic research conducted in the US, Mexico, and Togo, Faranak Miraftab shows how this workforce is produced for the global labor market; how the displaced workers' transnational lives help them stay in these jobs; and how they negotiate their relationships with each other across the lines of ethnicity, race,...

The essays in this volume explore the dimensions of contemporary spectacles from the Arab Spring to spectatorship in Hollywood.

Flourishing: Why We Need Religion in a Globalized World

Integral to both globalization and religions are compelling, overlapping, and sometimes competing visions of what it means to live well.

Global Culture: Consciousness and Connectivity

Global Culture: Consciousness and Connectivity by Dr. Didem Buhari-GulmezThe current discourse of globalization is overwhelmingly centred upon the interconnectedness, or connectivity, of the contemporary world; to the great neglect of the issues of global culture and global consciousness. With contemporary worldwide culture increasingly characterized by such themes as astronomy, cosmology, space travel and exploration, there is an increasing disjuncture between academic concern with connectivity, on the one hand, and culture and consciousness of the place of planet earth in the cosmos as a whole, on the other. This book addresses this deficiency from a variety of...

New Norms and Knowledge in World Politics: Protecting people, intellectual property and the environment

New Norms and Knowledge in World Politics: Protecting people, intellectual property and the environment by Preslava Stoeva

This book examines the process of norm development and knowledge creation in international politics, and assesses these processes in case studies on protection from torture, intellectual property rights and climate change.

Drawing on the theories of constructivism and the sociology of scientific knowledge, author Preslava Stoeva demonstrates that international norms are a product of a sequence of closures and consensus reached at different social levels. She contends that it is this process which makes norms permeate the social and political fabric of international relations even before they...

Faked in China: Nation Branding, Counterfeit Culture, and Globalization

Faked in China: Nation Branding, Counterfeit Culture, and Globalization by Fan YangFaked in China is a critical account of the cultural challenge faced by China following its accession to the World Trade Organization in 2001. It traces the interactions between nation branding and counterfeit culture, two manifestations of the globalizing Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) regime that give rise to competing visions for the nation. Nation branding is a state-sanctioned policy, captured by the slogan "From Made in China to Created in China," which aims to transform China from a manufacturer of foreign goods into a nation that creates its own IPR-eligible brands. Counterfeit culture...

Late Modern Palestine: The subject and representation of the second intifada

Late Modern Palestine: The subject and representation of the second intifada by Laura Junka-Aikio

Late Modern Palestine looks at the ways in which the relationship between the subject and representation and the political problematic of postcolonial late modernity is articulated in the context of the Palestinians' struggle for liberation. Junko-Aikio provides a rich, theoretically and empirically, and in part also visually grounded study of the complex ways in which ordinary Palestinians face, negotiate and resist multiple regimes of power and desire in the context of everyday life in the West Bank and Gaza.

The volume examines the early years of the second Palestinian uprising, an intifada,...

Harry Redner establishes where and how they went wrong, in some cases with apocalyptic consequences for Europe and the world.

Using both close reading and world history, both literary criticism and political theory, the book is a timely intervention in the debates about world, postcolonial, and transnational literature as they have been intensified by critical globalization studies, world-systems analysis, Bourdieuan sociology, and cosmopolitanism studies.

European Products: Making and Unmaking Heritage in Cyprus

European Products: Making and Unmaking Heritage in Cyprus by Gisela WelzOn the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, rural villages, traditional artefacts, even atmospheres and experiences are considered heritage. Heritage making not only protects, but also produces, things, people, and places. Since the Republic of Cyprus joined the European Union in 2004, heritage making and Europeanization are increasingly intertwined in Greek-Cypriot society. Against the backdrop of a long-term ethnographic engagement, the author argues that heritage emerges as an increasingly standardized economic resource, a "European product."

Seen as the moral justification for embracing or tolerating cultural difference, ethnically and socially diverse communities unenthusiastic with change, develop an acknowledgement of their common position vis-a-vis a western, "universal" political point of view. By means of exploring the idiosyncratic form of political intimacy generated...

A Moment of Equality for Latin America? Challenges for Redistribution

A Moment of Equality for Latin America? Challenges for Redistribution by Dr. Barbara Prof Fritz

Unlike other regions around the world, several Latin American countries have managed to reduce income inequality over the last decade. Higher growth rates and growing employment, but also innovative wage policies and social programs, have contributed to reducing poverty and narrow income disparities. Yet, despite this progress, nation-states in the region demonstrate little capacity to substantially change their patterns of deeply rooted inequalities.

Focusing on the limits and challenges of redistributive policies in Latin America, this volume synthesizes and updates the discussion of inequality...

This book responds to the call for a bold and creative approach to ethics that avoids assuming or aspiring to universality, and instead prioritizes difference, complexity and uncertainty by turning to reflexivity, not as method or methodology, but as a practice of ethics for politics.

This practice, 'ethical reflexivity', offers individuals,...

The Future of Welfare in a Global Europe

The Future of Welfare in a Global Europe by Dr. Bernd Prof Marin

What is the future of welfare in Europe?

The European welfare state is generally considered to be one of the finest achievements of the post-1945 world.

Women, Gender, Remittances and Development in the Global South

Women, Gender, Remittances and Development in the Global South by Dr. Lothar SmithThis book endeavours to take the conceptualisation of the relationship between transnational remittance exchanges and gender to a new level.
