  • The Politics of Lyingby Lionel Cliffe; Maureen Ramsay; David Bartlett

    Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 168.00

    This book provides the first attempt to synthesise what is a pervasive phenomenon, and one that is mentioned tangentially in many political analyses, but nowhere receives the systematic and theoretical treatment that its significance to the working of 'democratic' political practice deserves. It will thus be a volume that should interest a range of... more...

  • Peacebuilding in Northern Ireland, Israel and South Africaby Colin Knox; Padraic Quirk

    Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 165.00

    Political accommodation in Northern Ireland, Israel and South Africa at the macro level may not, by itself, be sufficient to achieve the long-term goals of building peace and reconciliation. This book uses Lederach's peace-building model to explore issues which may provide a basis for transformation and a lasting peace in the three countries. more...
