    Penguin Books Ltd 2014; Not Available

    As Henry Kissinger observes in this magisterial book, there has never been a true world order.

  • Democratic Transformation and Obstructionby Nelli Babayan

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 135.00

    Although "democracy promotion" has become a popular term for policy makers and scholars, democratization is rarely a smooth or linear transition. While some countries quickly democratize, others lag behind despite a long period of democracy promotion activities. Furthermore, while democracy promotion itself has been widely studied, there is a paucity... more...

  • Australia as US Client Stateby Erik Paul

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 45.00
