  • Peace Is the Wayby Deepak Chopra

    Potter/TenSpeed/Harmony 2005; US$ 16.00

    Deepak Chopra?s passionate new book, Peace Is the Way , was inspired by a saying from Mahatma Gandhi: ?There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.?

  • Diplomatic Interventionsby Dr Karin Fierke

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 46.00

    Diplomatic Interventions argues that war is a social construction. In so doing, it unsettles the definition of intervention, as a coercive interference by one state in the affairs of another, to examine the range of communicative or 'diplomatic' practices which through their presence modify the experience of war. The tension between claims that... more...

  • Peace and Security Across the Taiwan Straitby Steve Tsang

    Palgrave Macmillan 2004; US$ 135.00

    The end of the Cold War has regrettably not brought an end to all the major confrontations of the last century. One such confrontation is the stand-off across the Taiwan Strait. Despite increasingly interwoven economic links between the People's Republic of China and Taiwan in recent years, the tension between the two has not dissipated. Tsang and... more...

  • Puzzles of the Democratic Peaceby Karen Rasler; William R. Thompson

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 45.00

    Ever since the revival of Kant's Perpetual Peace thesis, the linkages between democracy and peace has been a central topic in international relations research, with sustained debate over whether it exists and if it does, why it does. In this stimulating volume, two leading IR scholars place the democratic peace debate within a broader context, including... more...
