  • Nationalism and Conflict Managementby Eric Taylor Woods; Robert S Schertzer; Eric Kaufmann

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    Ethno-national conflict is one of the central issues of modern politics. Despite the emergence of approaches to managing it, from nation-building to territorial autonomy, in recent years, the application of these approaches has been uneven. Old conflicts persist and new ones continually emerge. The authors of this book contend that what is needed... more...

  • China?s Evolving Approach to Peacekeepingby Marc Lanteigne; Miwa Hirono

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    China has become an enthusiastic supporter of and contributor to UN peacekeeping. Is China?s participation in peacekeeping likely to strengthen the current international peacekeeping regime by China?s adopting of the international norms of peacekeeping? Or, on the contrary, is it likely to alter the peacekeeping norms in a way that aligns with its... more...

  • Intelligence in the Cold War: What Difference did it Make?by Michael Herman; Gwilym Hughes

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    Intelligence was a major part of the Cold War, waged by both sides with an almost warlike intensity. Yet the question 'What difference did it all make?' remains unanswered. Did it help to contain the Cold War, or fuel it and keep it going? Did it make it hotter or colder? Did these large intelligence bureaucracies tell truth to power, or give their... more...

  • European Security Policy and Strategic Cultureby Peter Schmidt; Benjamin Zyla

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    With the Lisbon Treaty in place and the European Union increasingly involved in international crisis management and stabilization operations in places near and far, this volume revisits the trajectory of a European strategic culture. Specifically, it studies the usefulness of its application in a variety of circumstances, including the EU?s operations... more...

  • European 'Security' Governanceby George Christou; Stuart Croft

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 37.95

    This book argues that we can understand and explain the EU as a security and peace actor through a framework of an updated and deepened concept of security governance. It elaborates and develops on the current literature on security governance in order to provide a more theoretically driven analysis of the EU in security. Whilst the current literature... more...

  • Understanding Deterrenceby Keith B. Payne

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 37.95

    For decades, the rational actor model served as the preferred guide for U.S. deterrence policy. It has been a convenient and comforting guide because it requires little detailed knowledge of an opponent?s unique decision-making process and yet typically provides confident generalizations about how deterrence works. The model tends to postulate common... more...

  • Power-Sharing and Political Stability in Deeply Divided Societiesby Allison McCulloch

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    Nearly all the peace accords signed in the last two decades have included power-sharing in one form or another. The notion of both majority and minority segments co-operating for the purposes of political stability has informed both international policy prescriptions for post-conflict zones and home-grown power-sharing pacts across the globe. This... more...

  • Military Robotsby Jai Galliott

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 119.95

    Philosophers have wrestled over the morality and ethics of war for nearly as long as human beings have been waging it. The death and destruction that unmanned warfare entails magnifies the moral and ethical challenges we face in conventional warfare and everyday society. This book provides a comprehensive and unifying analysis of the moral, political... more...

  • Northern Europe and the Making of the EU's Mediterranean and Middle East Policiesby Timo Behr; Teija Tiilikainen

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 119.95

    What drives European foreign policy towards the wider Mediterranean and Middle East region? This collection takes an innovative approach to answering this question, by considering the impact of intra-European divisions on European polices towards this crucial region. It also seeks to answer the questions of which factors are shaping the foreign policies... more...

  • War, Peace, and Securityby Jacques Fontanel

    Emerald Group Publishing Limited 2008; US$ 120.00

    In the name of international and domestic security, billions of dollars are wasted on unproductive military spending in both developed and developing countries, when millions are starving and living without basic human needs. This book contains articles r more...
