    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 120.00

    Syria has often lacked sympathetic observers. This book tries to interpret the country and its people in terms of how they see their own history and of what they are trying to achieve.

    Over the last decade or so, academic and non-academic observers have focussed mainly, if not exclusively on the institutions and places of formal power in the Greater Middle East, depicting politics in the region as a small area limited to local authoritarian rulers. In contrast, this book aims to explore the ?hidden geographies? of power, i.e.... more...

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2012; US$ 30.62

    How have political conflicts impacted philosophical concepts and the rise of particular intellectual lineages in China?

    Lexington Books 2014; US$ 94.99

    Most classical political theory posits that the structure and policies of the government and state reflect underlying social realities.

From 1949 into the early 1980s the social structure in China was in effect an artifact of the political system, dominated and shaped by the ruling... more...
