    Penguin Books Ltd 2018; US$ 14.09

    In this original and timely book, Bruno Maçães argues that the best word for the emerging global order is 'Eurasian', and shows why we need to begin thinking on a super-continental scale. While China and Russia have been quicker to recognise the increasing strategic significance of Eurasia, even Europeans are realizing that their political project... more...

  • Of Friends and Foesby Mark Crescenzi

  • How Democracies Dieby Steven Levitsky; Daniel Ziblatt

    Penguin Books Ltd 2018; US$ 23.96

    Two Harvard professors explain the dangerous world we face today Democracies can die with a coup d'état - or they can die slowly. This happens most deceptively when in piecemeal fashion, with the election of an authoritarian leader, the abuse of governmental power and the complete repression of opposition. All three steps are being taken around... more...

  • Incentivizing Peaceby Jaroslav Tir; Johannes Karreth

    Oxford University Press 2018; US$ 19.99

    Civil wars are one of the most pressing problems facing the world. Common approaches such as mediation, intervention, and peacekeeping have produced some results in managing ongoing civil wars, but they fall short in preventing civil wars in the first place. Incentivizing Peace shows that considering civil wars from a developmental perspective presents... more...

    Stanford University Press 2018; US$ 29.95

  • Democracy and American Foreign Policyby Robert Strausz-Hupe

    Taylor and Francis 2018; US$ 54.95

    Since World War I, the United States has pursued the defense of Western civilization as a critical element of its own national interest. In his provocative reconsideration of that goal, Robert Strausz-Hupe asks whether the American people can still agree upon and adopt foreign policies consistently devoted to that end. He specifically examines popular... more...

  • Twisting Arms and Flexing Musclesby Timothy M. Shaw

    Taylor and Francis 2018; US$ 54.95

    Military force is considered essentially a non-military pursuit in international relations, specifically, humanitarian intervention and peacebuilding.

It is illustrated by key case studies which consider the complexities... more...

  • In War We Trustby Chris J. Dolan

    Taylor and Francis 2018; US$ 54.95

    There is a long-standing tradition in Western culture of differentiating between 'just' and 'unjust' wars. 11 September 2001 has stimulated a debate in the West which holds that although people who are opposed to war in principle may disagree that any such distinction can possibly be made, the basic ideas involved seem to present a plausible argument... more...

    Security is a major contemporary concern, with foreign and security policies topping the agenda of many governments.
