  • The Unbroken Machineby Dale Smith

    Dundurn 2017; US$ 10.99

    Oxford University Press 2017; US$ 72.99

    While political theorists tend to regard rule as a necessary evil, this book aims to explain how rule need not be understood as anathema to political life.

    ABC-CLIO 2017; US$ 37.00

    Across the United States and around the world, people are struggling to understand why so many turned to Donald Trump?an individual described as rude and insensitive at best, and as racist, hateful, and ignorant at worst?as their champion.

  • 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

  • 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.

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...
