  • The Authoritarian Public Sphereby Alexander Dukalskis

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Authoritarian regimes craft and disseminate reasons, stories, and explanations for why they are entitled to rule. To shield those legitimating messages from criticism, authoritarian regimes also censor information that they find threatening. While committed opponents of the regime may be violently repressed, this book is about how the authoritarian... more...

  • The Erasure of Arab Political Identityby Salam Hawa

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    This book explores the long history of the evolution of Arab political identity, which predates the time of the Prophet Muhammad and is characterized by tolerance, compassion, generosity, hospitality, self-control, correct behaviour, equality and consensus.

  • State Repression in Post-Disaster Societiesby Clair Apodaca

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    A natural hazard is a physical event but a disaster is a social and political phenomenon. Natural hazards are, for the most part, unavoidable and apolitical. However, they carry with them serious political, economic, and social consequences. Disasters also have adverse consequences on human rights standards. An understanding of the relationship between... more...

  • Global Powers of Horrorby Francois Debrix

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 53.95

    Global Powers of Horror examines contemporary regimes of horror, into horror?s intricacies, and into their deployment on and through human bodies and body parts. To track horror?s work, what horror decomposes and, perhaps, recomposes, Debrix goes beyond the idea of the integrality and integrity of the human body and it brings the focus on parts,... more...

  • Four Crises of American Democracyby Alasdair Roberts

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 18.99

    In Four Crises of American Democracy , Alasdair Roberts puts democratic malaise in the United States in perspective.

    Biteback Publishing 2016; US$ 23.99

    Since its creation in the depths of the Great War in December 1916, the Cabinet Office has retained a uniquely central place in the ever-changing political landscape of the last century. While the revolving door of 10 Downing Street admits and ejects its inhabitants every few years, the Cabinet Office remains a constant, supporting and guiding successive... more...

  • The Dynamics of Statesby Klaus Schlichte

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    State domination in the non-Western world is hallmarked by its constantly shifting character. This stimulating book develops a new approach to the study of state formation and state erosion to explain dynamics that neither follow the pathways of development nor the rule of stagnation that dependency theory once suggested. Carefully edited by Klaus... more...

This book contributes to the analysis and understanding of how democratic states have transformed over time by examining a number of challenges and opportunities that they face. With a focus on ?Europe... more...
