    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2006; US$ 39.50

    This compelling and convincing study, the capstone of decades of research, argues that political regimes are created and sustained by elites.

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2011; US$ 40.00

    Structural needs for immigrant labour in health care, restaurant, tourism, agricultural and other economic sectors, together with harsher economic circumstances in most sending countries, almost certainly ensure the continuation of large-scale immigration to the US and Australia. But in harder times, especially in the US, sustaining this immigration... more...
