  • Reimagining Social Movementsby Antimo L. Farro; Henri Lustiger-Thaler

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 119.95

    The social scientific study of social movements remains largely shaped by categories, concepts and debates that emerged in North Atlantic societies in the late 1960s and early 1970s, namely resource mobilization, framing, collective identity, and new social movements. It is now, however, increasingly clear that we are experiencing a profound period... more...

  • A Cosmopolitan Journey?by Helene Snee

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 109.95

    What do young people get out of gap years? A wide range of 'official' sources acknowledge gap years as a way of becoming a global citizen and more employable at the same time. Instead of automatically assuming that gap years are a 'good thing', this book critically considers how this contemporary rite of passage could contribute to... more...

  • The Challenge of Global Commons and Flows for US Powerby Mika Aaltola; Juha Käpylä; Valtteri Vuorisalo

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 109.95

    Global Commons refer to domains that fall outside the direct jurisdiction of sovereign states - the high seas, air, space, and most recently the man-made cyberspace - and thus should be usable by anyone. These domains, even if outside the direct responsibility and governance of sovereign entities, are of crucial interest for the contemporary world... more...

    Basic Books 2014; US$ 28.99

    For centuries, the importance of financial accounting has been well understood. Essential to building businesses, states, and even empires, accounting has also helped leaders measure their power and craft their policies. When practiced poorly or neglected, accounting has contributed to cycles of destruction, as the 2008 financial crisis has made... more...

  • HIV/AIDS and the South African Stateby ?ehović; Annamarie Bindenagel

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 119.95

    This book does not seek to absolve the South African state of its responsibility to respond to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Moreover, it argues that although the state, the government, before, during, and after the transition to democracy, was aware of and acknowledged the threat - political, economic and social - posed by the epidemic, it nonetheless chose... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 45.00

    This book analyses the Russian opposition to the 2010 Barents Sea delimitation agreement in light of both the Law of the Sea and Russian identity, arguing that the agreement's critics and proponents inscribe themselves into different Russian narratives about Russia's rightful place in the world. more...
