    Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 175.00

  • Altered Statesby Gordon Smith; Moisés Naím

    International Development Research Centre 2000; US$ 15.00

    The dangerous turmoil is plain to see in the everyday failures of governments. Economic insecurity, polluted environments, the transfiguring power of global media, brooding conflicts of tribe and territory: all confound the capacity of even the most powerful state to govern alone, even on its own territory. For all the opportunities that globalization... more...

  • State Sovereigntyby Ersun N. Kurtulus

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 110.00

    State sovereignty is the foundation of international relations. This thought-provoking book explores the gap between seeing sovereignty as either absolute or relative. It argues that state sovereignty is both factual and judicial and that the 'loss' of sovereignty exists only at the margins of the international society. With many interesting real-world... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 46.34

    Written by leading scholars, this volume challenges the recent trend in international relations scholarship – the common antipathy to sovereignty.

Political leaders and opinion-makers throughout the world claim that the sovereign... more...

  • Political Pluralism and the Stateby Marcel Wissenburg

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 46.34

    The concept of a sovereign nation-state is a central part in many of the debates discussing the salient issues in political science today. Yet the debate on the state is fragmented and while the sub-disciplines within political science address the various possible consequences of different processes, the one thing they all share is uncertainty about... more...

  • Indigeneity and Political Theoryby Karena Shaw

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 48.99

    Indigeneity and Political Theory engages some of the profound challenges to traditions of modern political theory that have been posed over the past two decades.
