  • The European External Action Serviceby David Spence; Jozef Bátora

    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 115.00

    This book questions whether the institutions and practices of the emerging EU diplomatic system conform to established standards of the state-centric diplomatic order; or whether practice is paving the way for innovative, even revolutionary, forms of diplomatic organisation. more...

    As a bridge between Europe and Asia, the West and the Middle East, Turkey sees its influence increasing.

  • Anti-Americanism and the Limits of Public Diplomacyby Stephen Brooks

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 49.95

    Contrary to the view held by many who study American foreign policy, public diplomacy has seldom played a decisive role in the achievement of the country's foreign policy objectives. The reasons for this are not that the policies and interventions are ill-conceived or badly executed, although this is sometimes the case. Rather, the factors that limit... more...

  • Anglo-American Relations at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919by Seth P. Tillman

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 59.50 US$ 54.15

    The year 1919 marks a high point in the world power and prestige of Western democracy. World War I was ended, and the victory belonged to the democratic states.

Dr. Tillman examines here the documentary account... more...

  • After Victoryby G. John Ikenberry; G. John Ikenberry

    Princeton University Press 2018; US$ 19.95 US$ 18.15

    The end of the Cold War was a "big bang" reminiscent of earlier moments after major wars, such as the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 and the end of the World Wars in 1919 and 1945. Here John Ikenberry asks the question, what do states that win wars do with their newfound power and how do they use it to build order? In examining the postwar settlements... more...
