    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    EU enlargement - to countries in Central and Eastern Europe in 2004, the inclusion of Bulgaria and Romania in 2007, and increasing debates on Turkey?s membership - has dramatically transformed the European Union into a multi-religious space.

  • 'Progress' in Zimbabwe?by David Moore; Norma Kriger; Brian Raftopoulos

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    Zimbabwe's severe crisis - and a possible way out of it with a transitional government, and the new era for which it prepares the ground - demands a coherent scholarly response. 'Progress' can be employed as an organising theme across many disciplinary approaches to Zimbabwe's societal devastation. At wider levels too, the concept of progress is fitting.... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    Illustrated most dramatically by the events of 9/11 and the subsequent ?war on terror?, violence represents a challenge to democratic politics and to the establishment of liberal-democratic regimes. Liberal-democracies have themselves not hesitated to use violence and restrict civil liberties as a response to such challenges. These issues are at the... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    In early 2005 regional protests in Kyrgyzstan soon became national ones as protesters seized control of the country?s capital, Bishkek.

The events quickly earned the epithet ?Tulip Revolution?... more...

  • Situating Global Resistanceby Lara Montesinos Coleman; Karen Tucker

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    The book examines some of the ways in which contemporary forms of political dissent are situated within processes of global ordering. Grounded in analysis of concrete practices of discipline and dissent in specific contexts, it explores the ways in which resistance can be shaped by dominant ways of thinking, seeing or enacting politics and by the... more...

  • Democracy, Equality, and Justiceby Matt Matravers; Lukas H. Meyer

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 37.95

    In addressing democracy, equality, and justice together, the book stimulates discussions that go beyond the sometimes increasingly technical and increasingly discrete literatures that now dominate the study of each concept. The chapters fall into four categories: on justice and democracy; justice and equality; justice and community; and justice and... more...
