  • The Dollar and National Securityby Paul Viotti

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 25.95

    Defense establishments and the armed forces they organize, train, equip, and deploy depend upon the security of capital and capital flows, mechanisms that have become increasingly globalized. Military capabilities are thus closely tied not only to the size of the economic base from which they are drawn, but also to the viability of global convertibility... more...

  • Syria under Bashar al-Asadby Volker Perthes

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 36.95

    Syria entered a new phase with the death of its long-serving leader, Hafiz al-Asad, and the accession of his son Bashar in 2000.  While the new president has disappointed much of the hopes for political opening which he himself has created, Syria is clearly undergoing a process of change. The author analyses the factors of economic and political change... more...

  • Media Transparency in Chinaby Baohui Xie; Mobo Gao

    Lexington Books 2014; US$ 84.99

    This book examines the problem of transparency in the news media in China through analysis of the political and market control jointly imposed by the party-state and the media.

  • Terrorism: All That Mattersby Andrew Silke

    Hodder & Stoughton 2014; US$ 6.99

    Terrorism is surrounded by myths. One of the most enduring of these myths and half-truths is that terrorism never works. In the end, the state will prevail and the terrorists will either be dead or imprisoned or otherwise forced to end their campaign of violence. It is true that most terrorist groups are beaten. Within twelve months of their first... more...

  • Human Rights and the Uses of Historyby Samuel Moyn

    Verso Books 2014; US$ 16.95

    Where did human rights come from? This question, rarely asked before the end of the Cold War, has in recent years become a major focus of historical and ideological strife. In a series of reflective and critical essays, Samuel Moyn engages with some of the leading theorists of human rights, who have been creating a field from scratch without due reflection... more...

  • Understanding Deterrenceby Keith B. Payne

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    For decades, the rational actor model served as the preferred guide for U.S. deterrence policy. It has been a convenient and comforting guide because it requires little detailed knowledge of an opponent?s unique decision-making process and yet typically provides confident generalizations about how deterrence works. The model tends to postulate common... more...

  • Operation Shakespeareby John Shiffman

    Simon & Schuster 2014; US$ 28.00

    On today?s high-tech battlefields, the most lethal weapons are not the big ones, but rather the ones that are small enough to be smuggled inside a pack of chewing gum. Microchips. Gyroscopes. Radar-cloaking and night-vision technology. Developed and manufactured in the United States at extraordinary cost, these tiny weapons of war?which can guide missiles,... more...

  • Cosmopolitanism and the Legacies of Dissentby Tamara Caraus; Camil Alexandru Parvu

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    The core idea shared by all cosmopolitan views is that all human beings belong to a single community and the ultimate units of moral concern are individual human beings, not states or particular forms of human associations. Nevertheless, the attempts to ground a political theory on overarching universal principles is in contradiction with the plurality... more...
