Robert J. Holton, Emeritus Professor, Fellow, Trinity College, Republic of Ireland

The book maps what Leonidas Donskis terms ‘the troubled identity’, that is, the identity that constantly needs assurance and confirmation. Through an identity-building-andshifting process, argues Donskis, we can move from political majority to cultural minority, or the other way around.

The Importance of Neglect in Policy-Making Michiel S. De Vries, Professor of Public Administration, Radboud University, The Netherlands

De Vries argues that it is possible to explain when and in what direction policy change is likely to occur. He argues that what is neglected at present is likely to become dominant in policies of the near future. With the birth of a new policy generation a convergence towards meeting the dominant value of that generation will become evident.

Herman M. Schwartz, Professor of Politics, University of Virginia, USA

‘This edition improves on an already outstanding text. What Schwartz does here is highly unusual and highly rewarding: -he draws students into an adventure in learning that conveys knowledge about both the origins and evolution of a global political economy and the development of IPE as a branch of learning.’ - Randall D. Germain, Carleton University, Canada States Versus Markets shows that globalization is not a novel phenomenon but a recurrent process whereby markets have, since the sixteenth century, periodically redistributed economic activity.

The Politics of Economic Regionalism Explaining Regional Economic Integration in East Asia Kevin G. Cai, Associate Professor, Renison University College, University of Waterloo, Canada

‘This book will win lavish praise from both specialists on Asia and general readers. It is a gem.’ - James H. Mittelman, Professor, School of International Service, American University, USA; author of Hyperconflict: Globalization and Insecurity (2010) While major theories of economic regionalism in the existing literature are primarily constructed to explore institutionalized regional integration, European integration in particular, the analytical framework developed in this work explains the unique process and pattern of regional integration in East Asia.

‘In this persuasive book the authors make a major contribution to the understanding of our global political economy.’ - Diana Tussie, FLACSO, Argentina Despite abundant scepticism about their economic benefits, Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) have proliferated at a rapid pace. Policy diffusion models explain how different sets of preferential trade agreements are interconnected and establish under what conditions FTAs can work for or against the emergence of coherent regional blocs.

This is an in-depth analysis of the various methods used by small states to overcome their vulnerabilities in the international arena. With its balanced approach and variety of contributions, this book is of interest to researchers and academics who focus on the developing world or multilateral diplomacy.

Human rights play a crucial role in today’s international relations. They provide standards to which states must conform when dealing with their own citizens. Non-governmental human rights organizations remind states of their obligations in that field. Without this, human rights would have drifted to the bottom of the international agenda.

Qualitative Methods in International Relations A Pluralist Guide Edited by Audie Klotz, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science, Syracuse University, USA and Deepa Prakash, Department of Political Science, Syracuse University, USA
