What It Means and How It Matters to Politics

P. E. Digeser

Geoffrey Heal "In this passionate and readable book, Heal sets out the measures needed to reconcile economic progress with preservation of the planet. They are surprisingly simple and attainable. Heal demonstrates that there is not a trade-off between growth and environmental protection, but that they can and must go handand-hand, that growth is not attainable over the long run without protecting the environment." —Joseph E. Stiglitz, Nobel Laureate in Economics

"This engaging work impressively brings together discussions about friendship in political philosophy, ethics, and international relations to create a rich and stimulating conversation about the nature, role, and value of friendship in political life." —Catherine Lu, McGill University $65.00 / £54.00 cloth 978-0-231-17434-3 2016  392 pages

"Mihai constructs an extraordinarily clear map of the boundaries of legitimate resentment and indignation against prior injustice and then shows how judicial decisions can be exemplary in demonstrating the right roles for these fitting but volatile emotions within a democratic order."

“A pathbreaking work that combines history and political theory with a concise, richly analytical, exciting narrative. Enzo Traverso redefines our understanding of the current regimes of temporality...and challenges historians and critical theorists alike to think beyond the standard binaries between history and memory, revolution and defeat, and melancholy and politics.”—Federico Finchelstein, the New School

France, the United States, and Iraq, 1991–2003 Frédéric Bozo

A Century of Politics and Resistance Mansour Nasasra

Translated by Susan Emanuel

“This book, the only serious study in any language of Franco-American relations during the 2002–3 Iraq crisis, is based on the most complete range of sources available on both sides of the Atlantic. It challenges a number of the stereotypes and elements of received wisdom about the crisis and situates the policies of the George W. Bush administration in their true historical context.”—Jolyon Howorth, Yale University, author of Security and Defence Policy in the European Union $55.00 / £41.00 cloth 978-0-231-70444-1

"[Mansour] Nasasra uncovers marvelous material that illuminates the history of the Naqab Palestinians and challenges prevailing understandings of their politics and social experiences. The long historical perspective that takes us from Ottoman times to the present relies on Nasasra's prodigious original research and superb documentation to present a comprehensive and detailed picture of this Bedouin community struggling against state power." —Lila Abu-Lughod, Joseph L.

It provides practical examples of the ways that education can contribute to transitional justice—through reparations and by addressing educational inequalities, by engaging children and young people in nonformal education, helping successive generations learn about the violent conflicts that have affected their own societies." —Alan Smith, UNESCO Chair in Pluralism, Human Rights and Democracy, Ulster University

Andrew L. Oros

Paul B. Stares proposes a long-term strategy for how the United States can manage the risks of a more turbulent world in a way that lessens the demand for—and potential drain on—U.S. power. Using examples from Syria, Ukraine, and the South China Sea, Preventive Engagement shows its strategy in practice and illuminates the role that international actors, including NGOs, the United Nations, regional organizations, and private businesses, can play to further U.S. preventive goals.

“Particularly as the course of world history increasingly flows through the Asia-Pacific, policymakers, military strategists, and those simply interested in this dynamic region should consider Oros's latest book a mustread to understand the complex context and key factors that shape Japan's modern security evolution."—Kurt Campbell, chairman and CEO of the Asia Group and former assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs $30.00 / £25.00 paper 978-0-231-17261-5

"This exemplary work of collaborative scholarship represents a genuine breakthrough in our understanding of the processes behind, and consequences of, Allied efforts to prosecute Japanese war crimes in the aftermath of the Second World War. Drawing on archival sources gathered from all corners of the globe, it not only provides an impressive overview of the thousands of individual trials conducted by the Allies across the Asia-Pacific region, but also details the complex tangle of considerations that resulted in the release of all remaining prisoners by the end of 1958."—Daniel Botsman, Yale University

How the Gloves Came Off Lawyers, Policy Makers, and Norms in the Debate on Torture “One of the most perplexing and disturbing outcomes of the 9/11 attacks and the rise of global terrorism was America's adoption of torture against captured suspected terrorists—so-called detainees.

Is the euro really the crowning achievement of half a century of European integration efforts? Quite the contrary: the euro has now become a great threat to the European Union as such. Strains caused by the crisis have led to greater dissension among member states and a public recoil against greater integration. This book explains the impact that the ongoing Eurocrisis has already had on the member states and their inhabitants.

Negotiations of the "New World"

Between Prometheism and Realpolitik

An estimated $3.5 trillion passes through the market for money laundering annually. This represents 80% of the world's illegal income. By "cleaning" the ill-gotten gains of the criminal economy, money launderers keep crime profitable and illegal activities, including terrorist organizations, funded. Most countries have adopted anti–money laundering measures, but their implementation in a globalized world is patchy, and incentives to tackle this illegal activity vary widely from one location to another. This volume takes an integrated look at the problem by considering the laws, the launderers, and the new economics of money laundering in the digital age.

Currently, the EU is at a crossroads in its existence as a political union. The Syrian War, the main cause of the refugee question, demands a coherent European position and action. The Eurozone's financial crises have not yet been fully settled. Russia's actions in Ukraine together with its anti-Western foreign policy call into question the European security order. Contributors analyze the EU's political and institutional responses in relation to these crises.

The New Context of European SouthNorth Migration

The global economic and financial crisis has had a severe impact on southern European economies, forcing growing numbers of mainly young migrants to move north and nurturing the fear of brain drain back home. This volume compiles recent research on European south-north migration, addressing migration processes and practices, the management of migration by institutions, and relevant public debates.

Why Do Some Civil Wars Not Happen?

Poland and Slovakia: Bilateral Relations in a Multilateral Context (2004–2016)

Peru and Bolivia Compared Witold Mucha Peace and conflict research has tended to focus on the causes of phenomena such as civil war, terrorism, and state failure. Witold Mucha takes a comparative approach from a peace causes perspective, asking why civil war occurred in Peru but not in Bolivia. Given the striking structural similarities between Peru 1980–1995 and Bolivia 2000-2008, as well as the numerous incidents that led Bolivia to the brink of civil war, Mucha explains why civil war occurred in one country and not the other.

Edited by Joanna Dyduch, Igor Kosir, Radoslaw Kupczyk, and Jaroslav Usiak This book investigates the complex relations between the Republic of Poland and the Slovak Republic in the context of ongoing processes in the European Union's political and economic system. Contributiors identify areas of Poland's and Slovakia's common interest as well as areas of potential conflict like foreign and security policy.
