10 Reasons to Abolish the IMF & World Bank

10 Reasons to Abolish the IMF & World Bank by Kevin DanaherA veritable "Globalization for Dummies," 10 Reasons to Abolish the IMF & World Banklays bare the most common myths of globalization in a clear and understandable way.

21st Century Democracy Promotion in the Americas: Standing up for the Polity

21st Century Democracy Promotion in the Americas: Standing up for the Polity by Jorge Heine & Brigitte Weiffen

This volume examines the promotion and defense of democracy in the Americas, and the role it has played in this veritable regional renaissance. Taking the Inter-American Democratic Charter (IADC) of 2001 as a baseline it charts the evolution of the issue over the past decade.

Although it considers historical antecedents, the main focus of the book is on key instances of promotion and defense of democracy in the Western hemisphere since the adoption of the IADC.

50 Facts That Should Change the World

50 Facts That Should Change the World by Jessica WilliamsIn this new edition of her bestseller, Jessica Williams tests the temperature of our world and diagnoses a malaise with some shocking symptoms. Get the facts but also the human side of the story on the world?s hunger, poverty, material and emotional deprivation; its human rights abuses and unimaginable wealth; the unstoppable rise of consumerism, mental illness, the drugs trade, corruption, gun culture, the abuse of our environment and more. The prognosis might look bleak, yet there is hope, Williams argues, and it's down to us to act now to change things.

A Cosmopolitan Journey? Difference, Distinction and Identity Work in Gap Year Travel

A Cosmopolitan Journey? Difference, Distinction and Identity Work in Gap Year Travel by Helene SneeWhat do young people get out of gap years? A wide range of 'official' sources acknowledge gap years as a way of becoming a global citizen and more employable at the same time. Instead of automatically assuming that gap years are a 'good thing', this book critically considers how this contemporary rite of passage could contribute to the reproduction of structural disadvantage at both a national and international level in relation to young people's routes into education and employment, and representations of difference and distinction in cultural practices.

A Game as Old as Empire: The Secret World of Economic Hit Men and the Web of Global Corruption

A Game as Old as Empire: The Secret World of Economic Hit Men and the Web of Global Corruption by Steven HiattJohn Perkins' controversial expose, "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man," became an international word-of-mouth sensation and a long-running "New York Times" bestseller. However, the revelations that John Perkins presented in "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man" were, actually, only a glimpse into the world of economic hit men. It turns out this secret world is even bigger, deeper, and more sinister than even Perkins knew. Perkins is now joined by a dozen other economic hit men and investigators, as they go much further in revealing how the EHM game has functioned, and continues to function,...

A Global Union for Global Workers: Collective Bargaining and Regulatory Politics in Maritime Shipping

A Global Union for Global Workers: Collective Bargaining and Regulatory Politics in Maritime Shipping by Nathan LillieThis is a book about how global unionism was born in the maritime shipping sector. It argues that the industrial structure of shipping, and specifically the interconnected nature of shipping production chains, facilitated the globalization of union bargaining strategy, and the transnationalization of union structures for mobilizing industrial action. This, in turn, led to global collective bargaining institutions and effective union participation in global regulatory politics. This study uses a variety of source and analytical techniques, relying heavily on interviews with union official and...

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...

A New Diplomacy for Sustainable Development: The Challenge of Global Change

A New Diplomacy for Sustainable Development: The Challenge of Global Change by Bo Kjellén

Accelerating, human-induced changes in global natural systems, with global warming as a prime example, are modifying international relations. Diplomacy has to recognize that new types of threats will require new solutions and a new spirit of cooperation. This is a gradual process; traditional conflicts will continue to haunt the international system and traditional methods of diplomatic work still prevail.

Based on forty years of experience in multilateral negotiations as former diplomat and international negotiator, the author has developed the concept of a New Diplomacy for Sustainable Development....

A Practice of Ethics for Global Politics: Ethical Reflexivity

A Practice of Ethics for Global Politics: Ethical Reflexivity by Jack L. Amoureux

What kind of ethics in world politics is possible if there is no foundation for moral knowledge or global reality is at least complex and contingent? Furthermore, how can an ethics grapple with difference, a persistent and confounding feature for global politics? 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,...

A Precariat Charter: From Denizens to Citizens

A Precariat Charter: From Denizens to Citizens by Guy StandingGuy Standing's immensely influential 2011 book introduced the Precariat as an emerging mass class, characterized by inequality and insecurity. Standing outlined the increasingly global nature of the Precariat as a social phenomenon, especially in the light of the social unrest characterized by the Occupy movements. He outlined the political risks they might pose, and at what might be done to diminish inequality and allow such workers to find a more stable labour identity.

His concept and his conclusions have been widely taken up by thinkers from Noam Chomsky to Zygmunt Bauman, by political activists...

The American Century has passed, argues Starobin, due in large part to America's military overreach in the Middle East; resurgent nationalism and economic expansion in Russia, China, and India; the tarnished American model of...
