  • One Nation Under Surveillanceby Simon Chesterman

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 33.99

    What limits, if any, should be placed on a government's efforts to spy on its citizens in the name of national security?

In the area of privatization of security functions, attention... more...

  • Making States Workby Simon Chesterman; Michael Ignatieff; Ramesh Thakur

    United Nations University Press 2006; US$ 45.00

    In the wealth of literature on state failure, surprisingly little attention has been paid to the question of what constitutes state success and what enables a state to succeed. This book is a joint project of the International Peace Academy and the United Nations University and examines the strategies and tactics of international actors, local political... more...

  • After Mass Crimeby Beatrice Poulginy; Simon Chesterman; Albrecht Schnabel

    United Nations University Press 2006; US$ 38.00
