  • Democracy in crisisby Stella Gaon

    Manchester University Press 2010; US$ 95.00

  • Central America in the New Millenniumby Jennifer L. Burrell; Ellen Moodie

    Berghahn Books 2012; US$ 95.00

    Most non-Central Americans think of the narrow neck between Mexico and Colombia in terms of dramatic past revolutions and lauded peace agreements, or sensational problems of gang violence and natural disasters. In this volume, the contributors examine regional circumstances within frames of democratization and neoliberalism, as they shape lived... more...

  • Rethinking Public Administrationby Richard Clay Wilson

    Mill City Press 2009; US$ 9.95

    When we think about government, our thoughts are almost invariably about politics. Politicians deserve the attention they get, serving as they do at the top of federal, state, and local government.
