In Women's Glasnost vs. Naglost we finally hear the voices of the Russian women on what it means to be female and Russian in the tumultuous climate that is modern Russia. The founder of the... more...

  • Trafficking and Human Rightsby Leslie Holmes

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2010; US$ 40.00

    Human trafficking is widely considered to be the fastest growing branch of trafficking.

This fascinating... more...

  • Germany after the Grand Coalitionby Silvia Bolgherini; Florian Grotz

    Palgrave Macmillan 2010; US$ 105.00

    In Germany, Grand Coalitions of the two major parties - the Christian Democrats (CDU/CSU) and the Social Democrats (SPD) - generally have a bad reputation.

  • The Silent Stateby Heather Brooke

    Random House 2011; US$ 14.09

    Award-winning investigative journalist Heather Brooke exposes the shocking and farcical lack of transparency at all levels of government.

  • The Capacity for Civic Engagementby David P. Levine

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 105.00

    While we do not lack for literature to guide us in thinking about public life, we have less to call on when our problem is not only to explore public ideals and institutions, but also to consider the nature and origin of our capacity to make a connection with and find meaning in those institutions and ideals. Levine explores the nature and origin... more...
