    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 145.00

    In the election to the House of Representatives in 2009, the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) almost tripled the number of its lower house members by winning 308 seats.

    Stanford University Press 2015; US$ 27.95

    Gaining Freedoms reveals a new locus for global political change: everyday urban contestation.

  • Ein Hauch von Jasminby Janis Brinkmann

    Herbert von Halem Verlag 2015; US$ 24.99

    Die Darstellung des Islam in der deutschen Presse ist seit vielen Jahren problematisch: Die Mehrheit der Artikel und Beiträge über die islamische Welt sind von Negativthemen, Elitenzentrierung sowie von Stereotypen, Vorurteilen und Feindbildern verzerrt. Aufbauend auf grundlegenden Studien zur Auslandsberichterstattung und vor dem Hintergrund aktueller... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 49.95
