Letter from the editors: We are delighted to present the 2017 Columbia University Press political science catalog. This year

has been one of growth and change for Columbia’s political science editorial team. We have added

two new editors: Stephen Wesley, covering American politics and US foreign relations, and Caelyn

Cobb, covering international politics. The titles featured here demonstrate the expanding footprint of

Columbia University Press as we renew our focus on American politics and continue a long tradition of publishing top scholarship in security studies, international relations, comparative and regional politics, and political theory.

As the United States asserts its position in the ever-evolving international community, Columbia continues to publish strong offerings in US foreign relations and foreign policy. Noted economist Jeffrey Sachs gives his take on the United States’ role in the world in A New Foreign Policy: Beyond American Exceptionalism, while political scientist Christopher Fettweiss explores how American exceptionalism affects foreign policy in Psychology of a Superpower: Security and Dominance in U.S. Foreign Policy. Two new books have also debuted in the Nancy Bernkopf Tucker and Warren I. Cohen Books on AmericanEast Asian Relations series. In The Conflicted Superpower: America’s Collaboration with China and India in Global Innovation, Andrew Kennedy explores how the US, arguably the world’s most powerful country, approaches its growing collaboration with two rising powers, China and India; Jeanne Guillemin’s Hidden Atrocities: uncovers the secret history of US meddling in the post-World War II Tokyo Trial. Global geopolitics are more in flux than ever after the 2017 election, and nothing speaks more to the current state of affairs than Chaos in the Liberal Order: The Trump Presidency and International

Politics in the Twenty-First Century, where Robert Jervis, Joshua Rovner, Francis Galvin, and Diane

Labrosse bring together the field’s best to discuss international politics after Donald Trump. Richard Nephew’s The Art of Sanctions: A View from the Field, Terence Roehrig’s Japan, South Korea, and the

United States Nuclear Umbrella: Deterrence After the Cold War, and Richard Hill’s No Place for Russia: European Security Institutions Since 1989 all discuss the scholarly underpinnings of international

politics surrounding Russia, Japan, and North Korea. Columbia also continues its relationship with

the Council on Foreign Relations through Scott Snyder’s South Korea at the Crossroads: Autonomy and Alliance in an Era of Rival Powers.

Highlights in our security studies program include the third edition of Bruce Hoffman’s essential

Inside Terrorism, Stephen Tankel’s study of US counterterror partnerships, With Us and Against Us: How America’s Partners Help and Hinder the War on Terror, and Assaf Moghadam, on how terrorist

groups cooperate for increased strength entitled Nexus of Global Jihad: Understanding Cooperation Among Terrorist Actors. Mark Hamm and Ramón Spaaij investigate individual terrorist actors in The Age of Lone Wolf Terrorism, and Elizabeth Grimm Arsenault explores global norms on torture in How the Gloves

Came Off: Lawyers, Policy Makers, and Norms in the Debate on Torture.

We hope you share our enthusiasm for these books and the course they mark for the future of our list. Sincerely, Caelyn Cobb, editor, international politics & security studies Stephen Wesley, editor, American politics & US foreign relations

From Selma to Moscow

The Return of Bipolarity in World Politics

How Human Rights Activists Transformed U.S. Foreign Policy

China, the United States, and Geostructural Realism

Sarah B. Snyder

From Selma to Moscow demonstrates the crucial role of transnational connections and social movements in spurring human rights activism in the 1960s and 1970s. Sarah B. Snyder shows how activism transformed U.S. foreign policy, curbing military and economic assistance to repressive governments, creating institutions to monitor human rights around the world, and enshrining human rights in policy making. $30.00 / £24.95 paper 978-0-231-16947-9 $90.00 / £74.95 cloth 978-0-231-16946-2 2018 320 pages 13 illus.

Øystein Tunsjø

Øystein Tunsjø surveys the new era of superpowers to argue that the combined effects of the narrowing power gap between China and the United States and the widening power gap between China and any third-ranking power portend a new bipolar system that will differ in crucial ways from that of the last century. Tunsjø predicts that the two superpowers will not be as prone to arms races, that the risk of limited war is likely higher, and that rivalry and conflict between the two will occur in East Asia instead of globally. $65.00 / £54.95 cloth 978-0-231-17654-5 2018 288 pages

One Scientist’s Quest to Halt Nuclear Testing

Since the dawn of the Cold War, a group of scientists have advocated a halt to nuclear testing. Their work culminated in the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, which still awaits ratification from China, Iran, North Korea, and the United States. The backbone of the treaty is every nation’s ability to independently monitor the nuclear activity of the others. Noted seismologist Lynn R. Sykes has dedicated his career to halting nuclear testing.

Michael J. Green

William H. Hill traces the development of the post–Cold War European security order, showing how attempts to integrate Russia into a unified Euro-Atlantic security order were gradually overshadowed by the domination of NATO and the EU—at Russia’s expense. In light of Russia’s annexation of Crimea and war in eastern Ukraine, Hill argues that the post–Cold War security order in Europe has been irrevocably shattered, to be replaced by a new and as-yet-undefined order. $40.00 / £32.95 cloth 978-0-231-70458-8 August 2018 528 pages

Woodrow Wilson Center Press Series

In a history that spans the eighteenth century to the present, Michael J. Green follows the development of U.S. strategic thinking toward East Asia. Green finds one overarching concern: that a rival power might use the Pacific to isolate and threaten the United States and prevent the ocean from becoming a conduit for the westward flow of trade and values. Green explores these problems from the perspective of history’s major strategists and statesmen, from Thomas Jefferson to Alfred Thayer Mahan and Henry Kissinger. $45.00 / £37.95 cloth 978-0-231-18042-9 2017 760 pages 27 illus.

Terence Roehrig

Terence Roehrig provides a comprehensive look at the nuclear umbrella in northeast Asia in the broader context of deterrence theory and U.S. strategy. He examines the role of the nuclear umbrella in Japanese and South Korean defense planning and security calculations, including the likelihood that either will develop its own nuclear weapons. Roehrig argues that the nuclear umbrella is most important as a political signal demonstrating commitment to the defense of allies and as a tool to prevent further nuclear proliferation in the region. $30.00 / £24.95 paper 978-0-231-15799-5

In South Korea at the Crossroads, Scott A. Snyder examines the trajectory of fifty years of South Korean foreign policy and offers predictions—and a prescription—for the future.

Japan’s Security Renaissance

Contesting Cyberspace in China

New Policies and Politics for the Twenty-First Century

Online Expression and Authoritarian Resilience Rongbin Han

Andrew L. Oros

Rongbin Han offers a powerful explanation for the survival of the world’s largest authoritarian regime in the digital age. Han reveals the complex internal dynamics of online expression in China, showing how the state, service providers, and netizens negotiate the limits of discourse. He finds that state censorship has conditioned online expression but has failed to bring it under control. Han also finds that freer expression may work to the regime’s advantage in a number of ways, including the presence of state-sponsered, spontaneous, pro-government commenters on the Internet.

For decades after World War II, Japan chose to focus on soft power and economic diplomacy, eschewing a potential leadership role in regional and global security. Since the end of the Cold War, and especially since the rise of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Japan’s military capabilities have resurged. In this analysis of Japan’s changing military policy, Andrew L. Oros shows how a gradual awakening to new security challenges has culminated in the multifaceted “security renaissance” of the past decade.

This book depicts the relationship between Russia and China as a political marriage of convenience. Michal Lubina argues that the relationship is stable, and will likely remain so. After all, bilateral relations are usually based on pragmatic interests and the pursuit of these interests is the essence of foreign policy. As often happens in life, the most long-lasting marriages are those based on convenience. $63.00 cloth 978-384-742-045-3 2018 250 pages

The Age of Lone Wolf Terrorism

With Us and Against Us

Mark S. Hamm and Ramón Spaaij

How America’s Partners Help and Hinder the War on Terror

Foreword by Simon Cottee

Stephen Tankel

Stephen Tankel analyzes the factors that shape counterterrorism cooperation. He considers the changing nature of counterterrorism, exploring how counterterrorism efforts after 9/11 critically differ both from those that existed beforehand and from traditional alliances. Focusing on U.S. partnerships with Algeria, Egypt, Mali, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen against al-Qaeda, ISIS, and other terrorist organizations, Tankel offers nuanced propositions about what the United States can expect from its counterterrorism partners.

Mark S. Hamm and Ramón Spaaij distinguish between lone wolves and individuals radicalized within a group dynamic providing insight into the transformation of alienated individuals into armed warriors. Hamm and Spaaij conclude with an analysis of recent FBI sting operations designed to prevent lone-wolf terrorism in the United States, describing who gets targeted, strategies for luring suspects, and the ethics of arresting and prosecuting citizens.

Nexus of Global Jihad examines an emerging style of “networked cooperation” that works alongside interorganizational terrorist cooperation. Case studies use recently declassified materials to illuminate al-Qaeda’s dealings from Iran to the Arabian Peninsula and the informal actors that power the Sharia movement. The book proposes policies that increase intelligence gathering on informal terrorist actors, constrain enabling environments, and disrupt terrorist networks according to different types of cooperation. $35.00 / £27.95 cloth 978-0-231-16537-2 2017 400 pages

How the Gloves Came Off

Preventive Engagement

Elizabeth Grimm Arsenault

Paul B. Stares

How America Can Avoid War, Stay Strong, and Keep the Peace

Lawyers, Policy Makers, and Norms in the Debate on Torture

How the Gloves Came Off traces the unmaking of the consensus against torture. It implicates U.S. military commanders, high-level government administrators, lawyers, and policy makers from both parties, exposing the ease with which powerful actors manipulated ambiguities to strip detainees of their humanity. By targeting the language and logic that made torture thinkable, Elizabeth Grimm Arsenault shows how future decision-makers can craft an effective counternarrative and set a new course for U.S. policy toward POWs and detainees.

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.

External Democracy Promotion and Diversity Among International Agencies

The Politics of Nuclear Energy in the European Union Framing the Discourse

Evaluating Variances in the Impact of the UNDP and the EC in Rwanda

Pamela M. Barnes

Simone Beetz

Simone Beetz considers the mixed results of international agencies in democracy promotion despite these agencies’ attempts to shape a common policy as emphasized in various international agreements. Against the background of backlashes and the search for new answers, Beetz analyzes how the United Nations Development Programme and the European Commission promoted democracy in Rwanda from 2003 until 2013. Beetz also explains how various strategies employed to promote democracy differ.

Pamela M. Barnes questions the role that nuclear electricity plays in meeting the challenges of providing secure, competitive, and sustainable energy to support the development of the lowcarbon economy in the European Union. Her analysis focuses on the evolution of the discourse on nuclear energy among policy makers and the public at European and national levels. $66.00

Edited by Katarzyna Sobolewska-Myślik, Beata Kosowska-Gąstoł, and Piotr Borowiec

Maria Shagina

Foreword by Kataryna Wolczuk

Maria Shagina sheds light on how prestige and domestic factors impede the penetration of EU norms and values in the non-EU party structures, and points to the failures of Europarties to adequately address problems of party development in Eastern Europe. Shagina reveals the ways in which cooperation with Europarties has paradoxically contributed to the ossification of the status quo and impaired the development as well as the consolidation of democracy in three Eastern Partnership states.

Contributors paint the widest possible picture of the organizational structures of the most important political parties in central and eastern Europe, comparing them and their western European counterparts. They focus specifically on formal aspects as reflected in the parties’ statutory rules. $55.00 / £45.95 paper 978-83-233-4174-1 2017 492 pages

The Future of the Eurozone

Between Prometheism and Realpolitik

How to Keep Europe Together: A Progressive Perspective from Germany

Poland and Soviet Ukraine, 1921–1926 Jan Jacek Bruski

Edited by Alexander Schellinger and Philipp Steinberg

In this volume, renowned German researchers and leading practitioners provide pragmatic recommendations to remedy the financial and debt crises that are endangering the European currency union. They propose ideas for a democratically legitimized euro finance minister, a new economic approach, a common Eurozone budget, and minimum social standards to create a fair, stable, and prosperous Europe.

Jan Jacek Bruski examines Polish-Ukrainian (and Polish-Soviet) relations in the first years following the Treaty of Riga. He focuses on issues surrounding the development of the eastern policy pursued by the Second Polish Republic, including the Polish and Soviet efforts to win over the sympathies of Ukrainians living on either side of the frontier River Zbrucz. $55.00 / £46.00 paper 978-83-233-4188-8

Frustrated Democracy in Post-Soviet Azerbaijan

Handbook of Direct Democracy in Central and Eastern Europe after 1989

Audrey L. Altstadt

Edited by Maria Marczewska-Rytko

This collection of case studies shows the significance of direct democracy in the formal-legal and practical dimension of central and eastern European countries and points at the use of direct democratic instruments as expressions of political awareness in these societies. The case studies emphasize the significant connection of the accession process to the European Union and the development of direct democracy in these countries. $84.00 cloth 978-3-8474-2122-1

Frustrated Democracy in Post-Soviet Azerbaijan follows a newly independent oil-rich former Soviet republic as it adopts a Western model of democratic government and then turns toward corrupt authoritarianism. After western oil companies arrived and money flowed in, the regime resorted to repression to maintain its power. Despite Azerbaijan’s long tradition of secularism, political Islam emerged as an attractive alternative for those frustrated with the stifled democratic opposition and the lack of critique of the West’s political interference.

The Politics of Secularism


Religion, Diversity, and Institutional Change in France and Turkey

Edited by Guy Lachapelle and Pablo Oñate

Murat Akan

The fairly recent theory and concept of multilevel governance merged with the deepening integration of the European Union in the early 1990s and the development of free trade agreements around the world. Expanding on traditional approaches, such as neoinstitutionalism and multinational federalism, multilevel governance can offer a better understanding of the role of the state, regions, and provinces. Guy Lachapelle and Pablo Oñate analyze the changes that have taken place and look to the future. $66.00 cloth 978-3-8474-2025-5

France and Turkey are critical sites of secularism: France exemplifies European political modernity, and Turkey has long been the model of secularism in a Muslim-majority country. Murat Akan analyzes prominent debates in both countries on topics such as the visibility of the headscarf and other religious symbols, religion courses in the public school curriculum, and state salaries for clerics and imams. $65.00 / £54.95 cloth 978-0-231-18180-8 2017 376 pages

$63.00 cloth 978-3-8474-2083-5

The landscape of European migration has changed considerably over the past decades, in particular after the fall of the Iron Curtain and again after the European Union expanded to the east. Anna Guhlich researches the phenomenon of highly qualified migration using the example of migration between the Czech Republic and Germany. The book reveals diverse strategies migrants use to respond to the possible devaluation of their qualification, such as making use of their language skills, starting new studies, or using transnational knowledge.

Evolving Designs as a Transformative Practice in Nagorno-Karabakh and Syria

Philip Gamaghelyan

Foreword by William Hill

Foreword by Susan Allen

Philip Gamaghelyan exposes patterns of exclusion and marginalization as well as conflict-promoting tendencies in current conflict-resolution practice in the Nagorno-Karabakh and Syrian crises. He explores confllict resolution strategies that take a more flexible approach to diffusing the identity politics at the core of many international conflicts. $40.00 paper 978-3-8382-11176

This study shows how Washington managed its connections with European states through a set of mainly bilateral relations. Madeleine Albright once described the tools of foreign policy as including "everything from kind words to cruise missiles." This book is a comparative case study demonstating how the United States used this strategic approach toward Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus after the end of the Cold War.

The Limits of Westernization

Trouble on the Far Right National Strategies and Local Practices Challenging Europe

Edited by Maik Fielitz and Laura Lotte Laloire Europe is in trouble as right-wing motivated attacks have become a regular occurrence. Their targets span from religious minorities, such as Muslims and Jews, and ethnic minorities, such as Roma, to participants in LGBTQ parades, civil-society protagonists, and sometimes even representatives of the political order. International experts—among them Tamir Bar-On, Liz Fekete, Matthew Kott, and Graham Macklin scrutinize new forms of coalition building, mainstreaming, and transnationalization tendencies as aspects of diversified far-right politics in Europe.

The Limits of Westernization analyzes the complex local uses of “the West” to explain how the United States could become both the best and the worst in the Turkish political imagination. Perin E. Gürel traces how ideas about westernization and America have influenced national history writing and policy making, as well as everyday affects and identities. Gürel also illuminates the transnational development of powerful political tropes, from “the Terrible Turk” to “the Islamic Terrorist.” $60.00 / £49.95 cloth

The Political Economy of Poverty and Social Transformations of the Global South

The Democratic Developmental State

North-South Perspectives

Edited by Chris Tapscott, Tor Halvorsen, and Teresita Cruz-Del Rosario

Edited by Mariano Féliz and Aaron Louis Rosenberg

This book contributes to the debates on the production and eradication of poverty in the global South. Providing new insights into the limitations of traditional strategies to confront poverty, it highlights how social organizations are working to transform people's livelihoods through bottom-up struggle and participatory approaches rather than passively waiting for top-down solutions.

Analyzing the different approaches to the implementation of democratic developmental states in various countries, contributors evaluate whether these countries are merely replicating the central tenets of the East Asian model of the developmental state or whether they are successfully establishing a new and more inclusive conceptualization of the state.

Analysing Corruption

The Economics of Arms

An Introduction Dan Hough

The corruption scandals that have engulfed many

Western states and the efforts of the international political community to find ways to counteract them have compelled scholars to confront corruption as a subject for serious academic research. Corruption analysis has become a rigorous discipline with a broad consensus on what corruption is and a range of indicative case study analyses. Dan Hough provides an authoritative and engaging introduction to a subject that remains the largest public policy challenge that the state faces in many parts of the world.

Keith Hartley

It is estimated that today some 2.7 percent of world GDP ($1.5 trillion) is spent on arms. In 2014 Lockheed Martin, the U.S. defense contractor, had revenues of $45 billion—the equivalent of the GDP of Tunisia. This book explores the business behind these breathtaking figures and explains how the arms industry makes its money. $23.00 paper 978-1-911116-24-0 $75.00 cloth 978-1-911116-23-3 2017 176 pages

What the UN Is and What It Could Be

Regulating the Criminal Economy

An estimated $3.5 trillion passes through the market for money laundering annually. This represents 80 percent 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 those of terrorist organizations, funded. This volume takes an integrated look at money laundering by considering the laws, the launderers, and the new economics of money laundering in the digital age.

This primer helps readers understand the United Nations’ historical, technological, political, and economic context in order to analyze its strengths and weaknesses in light of current proposals to create more workable global institutions. $26.00 paper

Critical Theory in Critical Times

Political Change in the Digital Utopia

Transforming the Global Political and Economic Order

César Rendueles

Foreword by Roberto Simanowski

Edited by Penelope Deutscher and Cristina Lafont

Translated by Heather Cleary

Sociophobia looks at the root causes of neoliberal utopia’s modern collapse. César Rendueles claims that the World Wide Web has produced a diminished rather than augmented social reality, lowering our expectations with respect to political interventions and personal relations. He offers a reassessment of our antagonistic political traditions to show that postcapitalism is not 0nly a feasible system to strive for but also essential for moving past consumerism and political malaise. $25.00 / £19.95 paper 978-0-231-17527-2 $75.00 / £62.95 cloth 978-0-231-17526-5 2017 200 pages

Game Theory and Climate Change

Red China's Green Revolution

Technological Innovation, Institutional Change, and Economic Development Under the Commune

Parkash Chander

Joshua Eisenman Parkash Chander shows that a game-theoretic approach, which offers insight into the nature of interactions between sovereign countries behaving strategically and the kinds of outcomes such interactions produce, can illuminate how best to achieve international agreements in support of climate-change mitigation strategies. He discusses the policy recommendations his framework generates, including a global agreement to support development of cleaner technologies on a global scale.

China’s dismantling of the Mao-era commune system under Deng Xiaoping has been seen as a successful turn away from a misguided social experiment. Joshua Eisenman marshals previously inaccessible data to overturn this narrative, showing that the commune modernized agriculture, increased productivity, and laid the foundation for future rapid growth. $39.00 / £27.95 paper 978-0-231-18667-4 2018 472 pages 60 illus.
