  • Kazakhstanby Martha Brill Olcott

    Brookings Institution Press 2010; US$ 18.99

    At the outset of independence 18 years ago, Kazakhstan's leaders promised that the country's rich natural resources, with oil and gas reserves among the largest in the world, would soon bring economic prosperity. It appeared that democracy was beginning to take hold in this newly independent state. Nearly two decades later, Kazakhstan has achieved... more...

  • Getting to Pluralismby Marina Ottaway; Amr Hamzawy

    Brookings Institution Press 2012; US$ 15.99

    Pluralism in the Arab world has not yet matured into functional democratic politics. While ruling establishments, Islamist movements, and secular parties have introduced a much greater degree of pluralism into Arab societies, the imbalance of power and interdependence among these actors limits both the degree of political diversity and its effectiveness... more...

  • The Puzzle of Non-Western Democracyby Richard Youngs

    Brookings Institution Press 2015; US$ 15.99

    Western democracy is being questioned around the world. At the same time, Western aid groups are quick to say that they are not trying to impose a particular style of democracy on others and that they are open to supporting local, alternative forms of democracy. This book examines what it is about Western democracy that non-Westerners are reacting... more...

  • New Mentalities of Government in Chinaby David Bray; Elaine Jeffreys

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    China continues to transform apace, flowing from the forces of deregulation, privatization and globalization unleashed by economic reforms which began in late 1978. The dramatic scope of economic change in China is often counterposed to the apparent lack of political change as demonstrated by continued Chinese Communist Party (CCP) rule. However,... more...

  • Globalisation and Enlargement of the European Unionby Andreas Bieler

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 180.00

    On January 1 1995, Austria and Sweden joined the European Union (EU). This book examines why these two countries joined at such a moment and studies their accession against the structural background of globalization. In this cutting-edge analysis, Andreas Bieler argues that conventional neo-functionalist and intergovernmentalist theories fail to explain... more...

  • Globalisation and its Discontentsby Professor Stephen McBride; Professor John Wiseman

    Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 205.00

    Most analyses of globalization convey the message that it is an unstoppable force sweeping away national sovereignty and inevitably creating a brave new world of borderless and boundless consumerism. In such a context politics and democracy become irrelevant. This collection of essays develops a more critical and grounded analysis of the nature and... more...

  • Globalizationby Manfred B. Steger

    Oxford University Press 2003; US$ 9.99

    This work offers a stimulating introduction to globalisation and its varying impacts across, between, and within societies. It is a readable book that contributes to a better understanding of the crucial aspects and dimensions of the developments and transformations that go by the name of globalisation. more...

  • Globalization and State Transformation in Chinaby Yongnian Zheng

    Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 36.00

    As China develops its economy, this 2004 book argues it will be held back by its refusal to import democratic values. more...

  • The Politics of Developmentalism in Mexico, Taiwan and South Koreaby Dr John Minns

    Palgrave Macmillan 2006; US$ 145.00

    Minns argues that the industrial transformations of Mexico, South Korea and Taiwan were based on the existence of powerful developmentalist states in each. It explores the origins of such states and their dynamics and connects the form of autonomy they enjoy within their countries to the policies they pursue. more...

    Zed Books 2005; US$ 36.95

    Rapid advances and new technologies in the life sciences - such as biotechnologies in health, agricultural and environmental arenas - pose a range of pressing challenges to questions of citizenship. This volume brings together for the first time authors from diverse experiences and analytical traditions, encouraging a conversation between science and... more...
