SOCIAL & POLITICAL SCIENCES

By Melek Saral

Turkey's ‘Self’ and ‘Other’ Definitions in the Course of the EU Accession Process While Turkey in recent years has experienced an exhaustive accession process to join the EU -a long desired aim-, at the same time it has been increasing its involvement across the Middle East, leading to a debate over whether it is altering its focus from West to East. This book reveals that a shift in focus can be seen through analysis of the Turkish political elites’ definitions of "self" and "other" that were established as part of the EU accession process. Melek Saral uses these definitions to help us better understand the shift that Turkey is currently undergoing.

Utopia 1516-2016

As concern about immigration has grown within Europe in recent years, the European Union has brought pressure to bear on countries that are allegedly not sufficiently governing irregular migration with and within their borders. This book looks at that issue in Turkey and Morocco, showing how it affects migrants in these territories, and how migrant illegality has been produced by law, practiced and negotiated by the state, other civil society actors, and by migrants themselves. Ayşen Üstübici focuses on a number of different aspects of migrant illegality, such as experiences of deportation, participation in economic life, and access to health care and education, in order to reveal migrants' strategies and the various ways they seek to legitimise their stay.

PROTEST AND SOCIAL MOVEMENTS

Mapping Interactions between Regimes and Protesters This book brings together a roster of prominent contributors to present a strategic interactionist perspective on the study of contentious politics in the Middle East in response to the Arab uprisings. The common thread among the contributions is an interest in the micro-level interactions between various strategic players, including not only the mobilisation of protestors during the uprisings but also the responses of regimes. The book also examines short to medium-term adaptations of the regimes and the collective action of opponents

in the post-uprisings period, as well as the subsequent trajectories of the protesters themselves in the face of new forms of authoritarianism or democratisation. Frédéric Volpi is senior lecturer in international politics at the School of International Relations of the University of St Andrews. James M. Jasper writes about culture, emotions, and politics, and teaches at the CUNY Graduate Center.

The Troubles in Northern Ireland and Theories of Social Movements This volume focuses on a number of research questions, drawn from social movement scholarship: How does nonviolent mobilisation emerge and persist in deeply divided societies? What are the trajectories of participation in violent groups in these societies? What is the relationship between overt mobilisation, clandestine operations and protests among political prisoners? What is the role of media coverage and identity politics? Can there be non-sectarian collective mobilisation in deeply divided societies? The answers to these questions do not merely try to explain contentious politics in Northern Ireland; instead, they inform future research on social

movements beyond this case. Specifically, we argue that an actor-based approach and the contextualisation of contentious politics provide a dynamic theoretical framework to better understand the Troubles and the development of conflicts in deeply divided societies.

A Social History of Technology Technology today is often presented as our best hope of solving the world's social and sustainability problems.

book offers a historical look at those interactions between engineering and social challenges, showing how engineers developed solutions to past problems, and looking at the ways that those solutions often bring with them unintended consequences that themselves require solving.

The world is in turmoil: we are witnessing steep social and environmental challenges. Technology is identified as both cause of and solution to these challenges. How can we use technology to solve problems— without creating new ones? Engineering the Future, Understanding the Past discusses the role of engineering in our age of grand challenges—by drawing lessons from the past. Since the birth of modern engineering roughly two centuries ago, technology has helped to reshape our modern world. At the same time, social challenges have shaped engineering science and practice. This book examines why and how engineers have engaged in solving social challenges—challenges for society, for business, and for users. It also asks why some technological solutions have unexpectedly created new problems. And it studies how engineers have coped with technology’s puzzling ability to both help and harm.

A Practical Handbook for University Teachers Interdisciplinary education has become a powerful buzzword in higher education. But it remains a complicated concept to understand and deploy. How do we define interdisciplinarity? How do we measure whether a student has integrated different insights? How can we challenge students to step across disciplinary borders? Designing Interdisciplinary Education answers those questions, offering guidance and practical advice for university teachers

who want to successfully develop, implement, and sustain an interdisciplinary approach to their teaching. Lucy Wenting is the director of the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Amsterdam, where Linda de Greef and Ger Post work. Christianne Vink is a coach, trainer, and consultant to university teachers.

Analogy and Exemplary Reasoning in Legal Discourse This book brings together contributions from leading figures in legal studies on analogy and related forms of reasoning in the law. Analogical reasoning—which relies on the concept of two different things being in some way like each other—is hugely important not just in the practice of law, but it is nonetheless strongly contested. This volume raises key questions like: What is the logical, argumentative, rhetorical, or just heuristic force of analogy in law? Is analogy really different from extensive interpretation, reasoning by precedent and appeal to paradigm?
