  • Europe, Cold War and Coexistence, 1955-1965by WILFRED LOTH

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 57.95

    This title examines the role of the Europeans in the Cold War during the 'Khrushchev Era'. It was a period marked by the struggle for a regulated co-existence in a world of blocs, an initial arrangement to find a temporary arrangement failed due to German desires to quickly overcome the status quo. It was only when the danger of an unintended nuclear... more...

  • Superpowers in the Post-Cold War Eraby Ken Aldred; Dr Martin A. Smith

    Palgrave Macmillan 1999; US$ 163.00

    This book explores the question of where power lies in the post-Cold War world. The authors identify and discuss the factors which make the United States the world leader in the 1990s, and consider the strengths and weaknesses of countries which may be on the way to becoming leaders in Europe (Russia and the EU) and Asia (Japan and China). more...

  • Global Changeby Takashi Inoguchi

    Palgrave Macmillan 2001; US$ 176.00

    This book examines global change from a dialectical perspective. Looking at global change in terms of unipolarisation in international security, globalisation in the world economy, and democratisation in global governance, the volume provides a refreshingly Japanese angle on addressing complex interplays between the social forces underlying these themes.... more...

  • Religion and the Cold Warby Dr Dianne Kirby

    Palgrave Macmillan 2002; US$ 32.00

    Although seen widely as the twentieth-century's great religious war, as a conflict between the god-fearing and the godless, the religious dimension of the Cold War has never been subjected to a scholarly critique. This unique study shows why religion is a key Cold War variable. A specially commissioned collection of new scholarship, it provides fresh... more...

    Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 40.00

    An analysis of the growth of foreign and security policy cooperation between EU member states. more...

  • The Cold Warby Robert J. McMahon

    Oxford University Press 2003; US$ 9.99

    How, when, and why did the Cold War begin? Why did it last so long? What impact did it have on the United States, the Soviet Union, Europe, and the Third World? Finally, what difference did it make to the broader history of the second half of the 20th century? This overview of the Cold War should invite debate and encourage deeper investigation. more...

  • Remapping Global Politicsby Yale H. Ferguson; Richard W. Mansbach

    Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 40.00

    An attempt to redraw our mental maps of global politics through the prism of 'post-internationalism'. more...

  • Uses of the Otherby Iver B. Neumann

    University of Minnesota Press 1998; US$ 67.50

    The field of international relations has recently witnessed a tremendous growth of interest in the theme of identity and its formation, construction, and deconstruction. In Uses of the Other, Iver B. Neumann demonstrates how thinking about identity in terms of the self and other may prove highly useful in the study of world politics. more...

  • Ending the Cold Warby Richard K. Herrmann; Richard Ned Lebow

    Palgrave Macmillan 2004; US$ 41.00

    Although in hindsight the end of the Cold War seems almost inevitable, almost no one saw it coming and there is little consensus over why it ended. A popular interpretation is that the Soviet Union was unable to compete in terms of power, especially in the area of high technology. Another interpretation gives primacy to the new ideas Gorbachev brought... more...
