Edited by George Andreopoulos, City University of New York, USA, Zehra Arat, University of Connecticut, USA "The Uses and Misuses of Human Rights contributes invaluably to a more critical and complex understanding of human rights advocacy. In a world of violence, we are used to being critical of human rights abusers, but rarely do we question the advocates themselves or their strategies. This project's focus on the uses, abuses, and misuses of human rights (including the complexities of 'framing') is long overdue, especially given its nuanced analysis and policy implications. Through a series of fascinating cases, the authors offer a non-apologetic, balanced look at the achievements and challenges of human rights advocacy in today's world."—Sonia Cardenas,
This volume focuses on challenges to the effective and proper use of human rights and tries to identify, through a series of case studies, strategies and contexts in which human rights advocacy can work in favor of human rights, as well as situations in which such advocacy may backfire, or unintentionally cause harm. Contents: 1. On the Uses and Misuses of Human Rights; George Andreopoulos and Zehra F.

Communicating Europe in Times of Crisis External Perceptions of the European Union Edited by Natalia Chaban, University of Canterbury, New Zealand, Martin Holland, University of Canterbury, New Zealand "This book demonstrates that work on external perceptions of the EU has matured into a distinctive field of study that is greatly enriching the study of Europe... The special strength of Communicating Europe in Times of Crisis is that in a single volume it presents the cutting edge of research on external perceptions whilst setting the agenda for future study."— Richard Whitman, Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Kent, UK The EU views itself as an important actor on the world stage, a perspective supported by the role it plays in global politics. This collection presents a true reflection of the EU as an international actor by exploring how it is viewed externally and the impact that events like the Eurozone debt crisis have had on external perceptions of the EU.

Özgür Heval Çınar, University of Oxford, UK "Turkey is the only state of 47 members of the Council of Europe not to recognise conscientious objection. In this new book, Çınar analyses and subjects to informed criticism Turkey's official State ideology, founded on the idea of a 'military-nation' based on a system of compulsory military service. This analysis is also relevant to many other states, especially since Çınar provides cogent and soundly based proposals for reform. This book is a unique resource for scholars and practitioners alike and is highly recommended." - Bill Bowring, Birkbeck College, University of London, UK This study examines Turkey's non-recognition of the right to conscientious objection to military service and locates this non-recognition within the context of international human rights law specifically United Nations and European Union system.

Regimes of Social Cohesion Societies and the Crisis of Globalization Andy Green, Institute of Education, University of London, UK, Jan Germen Janmaat, Institute of Education, University of London, UK "This timely volume represents an excellent intervention within debates about 'the effects of social change on the social fabric' (p. 1) in the context of globalization, increasing inequality and social diversity, and the intensification of concerns about these trends in the aftermath of the financial crisis, recession and the new politics of austerity . . . Their book is a very worthwhile contribution to these aims and should be widely read by all those working in the fields of cohesion studies." —John Flint, International Sociology In this volume, now in paperback, Green and Janmaat employ an original and highly interdisciplinary mixed method approach to identify four major traditions of social cohesion in developed societies, analyzing how these various mechanisms are withstanding the strains of the current global financial crisis.

In none of its three periods of government since the famous victory of 1981 has it secured re-endorsement for a further term... The appointment of business friendly Prime Minister Manuel Valls is an important step but it is too early to say whether it will be successful. In this important book the UK's leading scholars of the French Socialists, David Bell and Byron Criddle, provide an indispensable guide to this most exceptional of parties." – William E. Paterson OBE, Honorary Professor for German and European Politics, Aston University, UK This engaging exploration of the French Socialist Party details the exceptional problems that the party has faced and the way it has dealt with them.

Edited by Anna van der Vleuten, Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands, Anouka van Eerdewijk, Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands,Conny Roggeband, FLACSO Ecuador and VU University, Netherlands "The book succeeds in bringing together research on transnational norm diffusion with comparative regionalism. The combination provides a fresh perspective on how global norms of gender equality are contested and negotiated when they travel from the global to the regional level."—Professor Tanja A. Börzel, Jean Monnet Chair and Director of the Center for European Integration, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany This book analyses the diffusion of norms concerning gender-based violence and gender mainstreaming of aid and trade between the EU, South America and Southern Africa.

Bastian A. Vollmer, Centre on Migration, Policy and Society, University of Oxford "This book answers challenging questions.

Aptly combining different methods and data, and written in a clear and accessible style, it shows that the Europarties have effectively "survived" their own Eastward enlargement. As the Europarties are gaining momentum in the EU, this book could not be more topical." —Sergio Fabbrini, Professor of Political Science and Director, LUISS School of Government, Rome By comparing the importance of representative democracy to the EU as enshrined in the Lisbon Treaty with the political systems in the EU’s newest member states, this study explores whether representative democracy can really exist in an enlarged EU and explores the constraints and opportunities for political parties operating the in the EU.

It is the most comprehensive survey of the place of rhetoric in British political culture available at the moment....The authors show that politics and civil society cannot afford to ignore rhetoric, its past and even more so its future."—Johan Siebers, Division of English Language, Linguistics, Literature and Culture, University of Central Lancashire, UK Although the art of rhetoric is central to the practice of politics it also plays an important role in civic and private life. Using Aristotelian notions of ethos, pathos and logos, this collection offers engaging discussions on everything from Prime Minister's Questions and Welsh devolution to political satire and the rhetoric of cultural racism.

GLOBALIZATION, THE STATE AND POLITICAL SOCIOLOGY Governing Disasters
Borderities and the Politics of Contemporary Mobile Borders
Beyond Risk Culture Edited by Sandrine Revet, Sciences Po, France, Julien Langumier, Sciences Po, France
Anne Laure Amilhat-Szary, Université Grenoble Alpes, France, Frédéric Giraut, Université de Genève, Switzerland
Based on extensive ethnographic and historical research conducted in diverse field locations, this volume offers an acute analysis of how actors at local, national, and international levels govern disasters; it examines the political issues at stake that often go unaddressed and demonstrates that victims of disaster do not remain passive.
This book explores the emerging forms and functions of contemporary mobile borders. It deals with issues of security, technology, migration and cooperation while addressing the epistemological and political questions that they raise. The 'borderities' approach illuminates the question of how borders can be the site of both power and counter-power.

The Political Economy of Renewable Energy and Energy Security
ASEAN’s Engagement of Civil Society
Common Challenges and National Responses in Japan, China and Northern Europe
Regulating Dissent Kelly Gerard, University of Western Australia, Australia "In this timely, rigorously researched and theoretically informed work, Kelly Gerard analyses ASEAN's engagement with regional civil society, going beyond current writings that uncritically laud that engagement as indicative of progress towards participatory regionalism or simply dismiss such engagement as mere window dressing. Using Kanishka Jayasuriya and Garry Rodan's 'mode of political participation' approach that usefully distinguishes between participation, representation and contestation, the book confirms the rhetorical nature of ASEAN's engagement with civil society and, importantly, tells us why and how this has been accomplished. It is valuable reading for all those interested in understanding the intricacies and intrigues involved in ASEAN's journey towards participatory regionalism." — Helen E S Nesadurai, Monash University, Malaysia Campus This book offers an innovative framework for understanding the role of civil society in regional and global policymaking. Using political economy analysis, Gerard demonstrates that ASEAN’s people-oriented agenda builds legitimacy, while sidelining its detractors. Contents: 1. A ‘People-Oriented’ ASEAN? * 2.

Promoting U.S. Investment in Sub-Saharan Africa Roshen Hendrickson, College of Staten Island, USA "The thrust of this exceptional book is clear and unambiguous: Africa is a land of opportunity with respect to the core economic interests of the United States.

This is an extraordinary book grounded in data, rich in detail, judicious in its evaluations, and sensible in its conclusions.

The International Political Economy of Communication Media and Power in South America
Ray Kiely, Queen Mary University of London, UK "It has become widely accepted that the rise of the South in recent decades, and especially since the western financial crisis, has transformed world politics and world economics. In this major new book Ray Kiely carefully assesses the evidence, questioning how transformative this rise really is, and whether it entails the decline of the United States... Kiely injects a welcome dose of realism into current debates, and no-one involved in them can afford to ignore the book's arguments." - Andrew Gamble, University of Cambridge, UK The author examines the rise of the BRICs and the supposed decline of the United States. Focusing on the boom years from 1992 to 2007, and the crisis years after 2008, he argues that there are limits to the rise of the former and that the extent of US decline has been greatly exaggerated.

The book genuinely adds to our knowledge and understanding in this key, but often neglected, dimension of global economic and political change." - Anthony Payne, University of Sheffield, UK

The Politics of Climate Change, Military Intervention and Financial Crisis Peter Lee, RAF College Cranwell, University of Portsmouth, UK "Focusing upon the three great global political crises of our time – military intervention, the financial meltdown, and the actual 'meltdown' threatened by climate change – the author provides a probing and deeply unsettling assessment of the manner in which competing and often illusory truth-claims are fashioned by political leaders, governments, international institutions and demagogues solely in order to re-shape the world in their image, and to gain control over the lives of others. Our fundamental assumptions about what Truth is, or what it means, are put to test in this eloquent, articulate, and provocative work."—George R. Lucas Jr., U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, USA We live in an age of crises that are global in scale and potentially apocalyptic in severity, affecting the lives of millions – billions – of people. Peter Lee examines the struggle for truth at the heart of these crises to show how political leaders attempt to shape individual behavior, attitudes and identity.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS Human Rights Protection in Global Politics
The Substance of EU Democracy Promotion
Responsibilities of States and Non-State Actors
Concepts and Cases
Edited by Kurt Mills, University of Glasgow, UK, David Jason Karp, University of Sussex, UK
Edited by Anne Wetzel, University of Mannheim, Germany, Jan Orbie, Ghent University, Belgium
This edited book by Mills and Karp brings together political, legal and moral perspectives on the responsibilities of human rights protection in world politics today. It critiques a narrow focus on states' 'violations' of human rights, incorporates non-state actors, and looks beyond the 'Responsibility to Protect' policy framework.
The book investigates the substance of the European Union's (EU) democracy promotion policy. It focuses on elections, civil and political rights, horizontal accountability, effective power to govern, stateness, state administrative capacity, civil society, and socioeconomic context as components of embedded liberal democracy.

Justice and Foreign Rule On International Transitional Administration
Daniel Jacob, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany Can foreign rule be morally justified? Since the end of the First World War, international transitional administrations have replaced dysfunctional states to create the conditions for lasting peace and democracy. In response to extreme state failure, the author argues, this form of foreign rule is not only justified, but a requirement of justice.

At a time when a new generation of American policymakers are again grappling with the issue of whether and how to contain security threats in Iraq and political evolution in Iran, this book provides a timely and particularly relevant reminder of the tangled legacy of past policies that continue to affect decision-making today."—Kristian Coates Ulrichsen, Rice University, USA

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS The Role of Ideology in Syrian-US Relations Conflict and Cooperation J. K. Gani, LSE, UK "J.K. Gani's book will take its place with the handful of classics written on Syria-US relations. Based on US archival evidence and memoirs of diplomats and leaders, it throws new light on US policy and perceptions and evinces an empathic understanding of Syria's frustrations with Washington's inability to pursue an even-handed approach to the Arab-Israeli conflict. Particularly masterful is Gani's dissection of the failure of the Syrian-Israel peace negotiations - a tour d' force that will make this volume indispensable to students of diplomacy in the Arab-Israel conflict." — Raymond Hinnebusch, University of St. Andrews, UK A study of US-Syria relations, this book analyzes the legacy of mistrust between the two states and continuities and discontinuities over time. It challenges the purely realist and power-political explanation that is dominant and points to a politically embedded set of ideas rooted in anti-colonial Arab nationalist ideology.

Risk and Hierarchy in International Society Liberal Interventionism in the Post-Cold War Era William Clapton, The University of New South Wales, Australia ''International Relations scholars have long assumed that anarchical international orders are incompatible with hierarchy among states. A new wave of scholarship challenges this 'taken-for granted', and with this book William Clapton emerges as an important new voice in this literature. Combining a social theory of hierarchy with insights drawn from Beck's theory of 'risk society', Clapton develops a powerful new argument about the evolution of international hierarchies and their effects on practices of international intervention. An essential read for anyone interested in the social contours of international relations." —Professor Christian Reus-Smit, University of Queensland, Australia The English School of International Relations has traditionally maintained that international society cannot accommodate hierarchical relationships between states. This book employs a unique theoretical and conceptual approach challenging this view and arguing that hierarchies are formed on Western states' need to manage globalised risks. Contents: 1. Introduction * 2. The Hierarchical Society * 3. Risk and International Society * 4. The Management of Risk * 5. Managing Risks in Europe’s Periphery: The European Neighbourhood Policy * 6.

Rethinking a Political Concept in a Global Context Edited by Christopher Daase, Peace Research Institute Frankfurt, Germany, Caroline Fehl, Peace Research Institute Frankfurt, Germany, Anna Geis, Institut für Politikwissenschaft, Germany, Georgios Kolliarakis, Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany Recognition is a basic human need, but it is not a panacea to all societal ills.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS Asian Thought on China’s Changing International Relations
Migration, Citizenship and the Challenge for Security
Edited by Niv Horesh, University of Nottingham, UK, Emilian Kavalski, Australian Catholic University, Australia
An Ethnographic Approach Alexandria Innes, University of East Anglia, UK
At the end of the Cold War, commentators were pondering how far Western ideas would spread; today, the debate seems to be how far Chinese ideas will reach. This volume examines Chinese international relations thought and practices, identifying the extent to which China's rise has provoked fresh geo-strategic and intellectual shifts within Asia.
This study focuses on the field of security studies through the prism of migration. Using ethnographic methods to illustrate an experiential theory of security taken from the perspective of migrants and asylum seekers in Europe, it effectively offers a means of moving beyond state-based and state-centric theories in International Relations.

Power, Information Technology, and International Relations Theory The Power and Politics of US Foreign Policy and Internet Daniel R. McCarthy, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK "A brilliant exercise in the crossroads of international relations and science and technology studies. McCarthy deftly analyses the Internet's rhetoric of structure as a product and instrument of US foreign policy.

Interpreting China as a Regional and Global Power Nationalism and Historical Consciousness in World Politics Edited by Bart Dessein, Centre for Languages and Cultures, University of Ghent, Belgium "To rescue understanding of a rising China from an agenda dominated by political economy, this book re-embeds it in history of Chinese thought and the conventions to be derived from it.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS European Integration and the Problem of the State
Peace, Justice and International Order
A Critique of the Bordering of Europe
Annette Förster, RWTH Aachen University, Germany "The question this book engages with is crucial to understanding the relevance of Rawls's liberalism to contemporary international affairs. Exploring the question of whether there are (or could be) decent non-liberal societies is essential to establishing the boundaries of toleration in international affairs. These are the boundaries of just war, of humanitarian aid and intervention, of stability and justice. They tell us whether a liberal conception of global justice is capable of being the object of an overlapping consensus between morally and culturally distinct societies. Annette Forster has accepted this challenge and produced a fascinating study of 'the decent peace thesis' that will give students and scholars in the field much to think about."—Peter Sutch, University of Cardiff, UK
Stefan Borg, Swedish Institute of International Affairs, Sweden ''This book is an important and essential contribution to understandings of identity, the state and alternative political, economic and social orders, of which the European Union is offered as the primary contemporary example. Borg's timely and critical reflection on the nature of European integration and the processes by which the EU's identity has been created highlights the state-like nature of this entity including the exclusions and violences.'' — Professor Roxanne Lynn Doty, School of Politics and Global Studies, Arizona State University, USA This study argues that the practices of European integration reproduce, rather than transcend, the practices of modern statecraft. Therefore, the project of European integration is plagued by similar ethico-political dilemmas as the modern state, and is ultimately animated by a similar desire to either expel or interiorize difference.

Decent Peace in John Rawls' The Law of Peoples
Simon Hollis, Swedish National Defence College, Sweden "Simon Hollis has done us a real service with this extraordinary study of the rise of Disaster Risk Management arrangements in regional organizations around the world. His core finding is that the DRM arrangements dramatically reflect global ideas and models rather than region-specific ones. This directly addresses the issue of whether regional structures fragment global society: it turns out they are most prominently media for integration." - John W. Meyer, Stanford University, USA The use of regional organizations to mitigate and respond to disasters has become a global trend.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS Democracy Promotion and Foreign Policy
The Capability Approach
Identity and Interests in US, EU and Non-Western Democracies
From Theory to Practice
Daniela Huber, Istituto Affari Internazionali, Italy ''There is no shortage in scholarship on democracy promotion despite its rather limited effectiveness. This book stands out, however, in its theoretical and empirical rigor. First, Daniela Huber explains why democracies – unlike autocratic systems – engage in promoting their own political systems on a global scale. She argues, 'it's identity, stupid!' Second, this book not only focuses on the U.S. and the EU, but also explains Turkish efforts at democracy promotion. A 'must-read' for both scholars and practitioners!'' —Professor Dr Thomas Risse, Freie Universität Berlin Democracy promotion is an established principle in US and EU foreign policies today, but how did it become so? This comparative study explores the promotion of democracy, focusing on exponents from emerging democracies alongside more established Western models, and investigates the impact of democratic interests on foreign policy.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS … Obama, US Foreign Policy and the Dilemmas of Intervention David Fitzgerald, University College Cork, Ireland, David Ryan, University College Cork, Ireland "Until the archives are finally open some date in the distant future, this book will be our primary guide to Obama's entangled foreign policy dilemmas. This is a subtle and deeply-probing examination of the concepts that underlie American assumptions about the Middle East landscape as a proving ground for the American dream - the final chapter in in the postWorld War II era. What comes through so powerfully, instead, is despite Barack Obama's desire to rebuild the American nation, a new Iraq syndrome will have replaced the Vietnam syndrome." —Lloyd Gardner, Rutgers University, USA This timely study analyses the ways in which competing ideologies and cultural narratives have influenced the Obama administration’s decision-making on Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria, situating these decisions within the broader history of American foreign policy. Contents: 1. Good, Safe, Strong: Obama and the Impossible Reconciliation * 2. Obama and Iraq: the ‘Dumb’ War * 3. Afghanistan, Escalation and the ‘Good War’ * 4. Afghan ‘Good Enough’ * 5.

Justice with Borders Oliviero Angeli, Department of Political Science, University of Dresden, Germany "This rigorously argued innovative book discusses the moral significance of territory. Using sharp analytic tools Dr. Angeli exposes mercilessly the fallacies in the traditional treatment of issues including cosmopolitanism and self-determination. Under his view moral cosmopolitanism does not preclude territorial rights. This book challenges the most entrenched beliefs of contemporary political theorists and provides an original and a compelling alternative which will greatly influence contemporary discourse concerning the international order."– Alon Harel, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel Territorial rights are often perceived to create barriers and discriminate against the poor. This study challenges that notion by re-examining the cosmopolitan understanding of territory. It addresses issues from the right to vote, the right to exclude others to the legitimacy of territorial boundaries and the exploitation of natural resources. Contents: Introduction * 1. Genealogies of the Territorial State * 2. Territorial Rights and Rights over Territory * 3. Territorial Inclusion and its Boundaries * 4. Territorial Exclusion and its Boundaries * 5.

Students and policy practitioners alike will find this book invaluable for understanding the EU's role in the prevention of nuclear proliferation." - Emil J.

Fringe Players and the Diplomatic Order The 'New' Heteronomy Jozef Bátora, Comenius University Bratislava, Slovakia, Nik Hynek, Institute of International Relations Prague, Czech Republic "This study of the nature and dynamics of the modern diplomatic order makes several surprising and interesting moves. Analytically by combining such strange bed-fellows as organization theory, oriented institutionalism and Eisenstadt's research program on comparative liminality, and empirically by focusing on three fringe players, a newcomer (the European Union) and two old enities (the Holy See and the Sovereign Military Order of Malta). The result [provides] new insights into diplomacy as an institutionalized, composite order, the interdependence between continuity and change, as well as the role of institutions in political life."—Johan P. Olsen, University of Oslo, Norway This book analyzes how three fringe players of the modern diplomatic order - the Holy See, the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, and the EU – have been accommodated within that order, revealing that the modern diplomatic order is less state-centric than conventionally assumed and is instead better conceived of as a heteronomy.

Middle Powers in World Trade Diplomacy India, South Africa and the Doha Development Agenda Charalampos Efstathopoulos, Aberystwyth University, UK "This important book provides a much-needed comparative analysis of the roles of two key developing countries—India and South Africa—in these often contentious deliberations. The author's detailed analysis gives an excellent overview and analytical appraisal of how New Delhi and Pretoria adopted various positions during the Doha process and why. As the BRICS become ever more important in global affairs, Charalampos Efstathopoulos' book is a major contribution in the current debates about the role of Southern powers in global governance and how this is likely to play out in the future." — Ian Taylor, University of St. Andrews, UK Examining how leading developing countries are increasingly shaping international economic negotiations, this book uses the case studies of India and South Africa to demonstrate the ability of states to exert diplomatic influence through different bargaining strategies and represent the interests of the developing world in global governance.

Battles to Bridges The EU, ASEAN and Interregionalism Regionalism Support and Norm Diffusion between the EU and ASEAN Laura Allison, Public Policy and Global Affairs Programme, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore "This fascinating book looks at actorness of the EU from a novel norm diffusion perspective. Its originality lies in the combination of a focus on the EU as norm diffuser and a focus on ASEAN as a norm recipient. Laura Allison clearly demonstrates that actorness lies in the eye of the beholder and therefore ASEAN actually contributes to shaping the EU's actorness. [This] book also has clear policy implications as it shows the need for a more symmetrical relationship between the EU and ASEAN." – Luk Van Langenhove, United Nations University, Bruges, Belgium Using a framework of norm diffusion to determine the EU’s international actorness in the context of its relations with ASEAN, this book provides a timely and in-depth analysis of EU-ASEAN relations. By investigating three aspects of regionalism support by the EU it presents a comprehensive account of norm diffusion between the EU and ASEAN. Contents: 1. Ambitions of Actorness 2. Seeking to Reconceptualise the EU as a ‘Power’ * 3. Drivers of Interregionalism: EU-ASEAN Engagement * 4. The EU, ASEAN and Economic Integration * 5. The EU, ASEAN and Institutionalisation * 6.

Women, War and Sexual Violence Sabine Hirschauer, University of the Free State, South Africa "The Securitization of Rape is a powerful, well-written, and well-researched exploration of the history, legal status, and theorization of wartime rape. What makes the book a singular contribution, though, is the combined empirical depth and theoretical sophistication. After several decades of conversation about rape as a weapon of war, Hirschauer's use of securitization theory is both a fresh take and a smart approach. It makes the book a must-read for students and scholars." —Laura Sjoberg, University of Florida, USA This book uniquely applies securitization theory to the mass sexual violence atrocities committed during the Bosnia war and the Rwandan genocide. Examining the inherent links between rape, war and global security, Hirschauer analyses the complexities of conflict related sexual violence. Contents: 1. Introduction * 2.

Constructing Threats and Containing Bodies in Somalia Brittany Gilmer, Old Dominion University, USA "Brittany Gilmer offers readers a fascinating, front row seat to the institutional response to piracy. Her ethnography is a detailed and innovative examination of how piracy has become securitized. Understood through Gilmer's critical lens, the front line workers of development themselves become the lucrative subjects of securitization as they compete for funding and become ‘piratized’ in the process."—Alison Mountz, Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada This book examines the increasing role of development organizations in securitization processes and argues that the new security-development counter piracy framework is (re)shaping political geographies of piracy by promoting disciplinary strategies aimed at the prevention and containment of gendered and racialized actions and bodies in Somalia.

The Politics of Civil-Military Cooperation Canada in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan Christopher Ankersen, Royal Military College of Canada "Using a Clausewitzian framework and a broad interpretation of civil-military cooperation Ankersen has opened a door to civil-military cooperation in practice. From a valuable soldier's perspective (with experience in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo and Afghanistan), he shows that the Canadian forces and civilian partners drew on the culture of peacekeeping to understand the meaning of military-civilian interactions." —Michael Pugh, Emeritus Professor, University of Bradford and Visiting Professor, Radboud University, Nijmegen Ankersen examines Canada’s civil-military cooperation efforts in Kosovo, Bosnia, and Afghanistan through the lens of Clausewitz’s ‘Remarkable Trinity’.

The Cross-Border Dimension Cathal McCall, Queen’s University Belfast, UK "The European Union and Peacebuilding is a most welcome addition to the scholarly study of Europeanization for it is not only the best book available on the impact of the European Union on culture, politics and identity in the borderlands of Northern Ireland, but it may be the best book today on the politics of culture in European borderlands." —Thomas M. Wilson, Binghamton University, State University of New York, USA Cross-border cooperation is integral to the peacebuilding objective of the EU. Yet, 25 years of such cooperation has often failed to translate into connecting people across borders.

From Conflict to Cooperation
Denis Dragovic, University of Melbourne, Australia ''As an international civil servant, Denis Dragovic has seen the importance of religion in political life while serving in conflict zones around the world.

Preventing Political Violence Against Civilians
Aoibhín de Búrca, Irish Humanities Alliance, Ireland "De Búrca's striking and innovative text offers a nuanced analysis of political violence used to pursue ethno-nationalist aims. Her cases, Northern Ireland and Israel/Palestine, may be traditional but her conclusions offer an important road map to scholars, students and policy practitioners on the means by which such violence can be prevented and minimised and ultimately replaced by political action. De Búrca convincingly argues that generic and de-contextualised models for addressing political violence fail to capture the depth and complexity of the phenomenon. The model proposed, rooted in social movement theory, offers greater understanding of political violence as well as identifying practical policy tools to address it." —Ben Tonra, University College Dublin, Ireland The increased targeting of civilians by militants raises serious and profound questions for policy-makers. Examining conflict in Northern Ireland, Israel and Palestine, this book focuses on ethno-nationalist militant groups and formulates a model to constrain violence against civilians. Contents: 1.

Violent Societies Networks of Violence in Civil War and Peace Christina Steenkamp, Oxford Brookes University, UK "This book provides a welcome addition to research on peace and war. By studying various forms of violence in post-war societies it sheds new light on the continuities and discontinuities of the structures and cultures created by the experience of war. Drawing on research on Northern Ireland, South Africa, Lebanon and Syria, it highlights the multiple layers of understanding of violence in these contexts as well as the blurring of boundaries of violence with social, political, economic and criminal motivations." —Kristine Höglund, Associate Professor in Peace and Conflict Research, Uppsala University, Sweden This book investigates the relationships between political violence, social violence and economic violence using examples from South Africa, Northern Ireland, Lebanon and Syria. It examines the cultural impact of war and argues that a culture of violence can explain the high levels of violence which are frequently found in post-war societies.

Democratic Deliberation in Deeply Divided Societies: From Conflict to Common Ground Edited by Juan Ugarriza, Faculty of Law, El Rosario University, Colombia, Didier Caluwaerts, John F. Kennedy School of Government. Harvard Kennedy School, USA "The book is global in orientation with cases as diverse as Iran and Belgium, Colombia and Nigeria.

Through the analysis of historical, institutional, cultural and psychological factors, it becomes clear where the potential is, but also the limits for deliberation in deeply divided societies are." —Jürg Steiner, Professor Emeritus of Political Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA and University of Bern, Switzerland Through case-analysis and cross-sectional assessment of eleven countries this collection explores the most deeply divided societies in the world in order to highlight what deliberative democracy looks like in a deeply divided society and to understand the conditions that deliberative democracies could realistically emerge in difficult circumstances.

The Contested Identities of Ulster Protestants Edited by Thomas Paul Burgess, University College Cork, Ireland, Gareth Mulvenna, Queen’s University Belfast, UK "Confident societies tend not to obsess about identity. But Northern Ireland does. The identity which is most debated at present is that of northern Protestants. Contested Identities is a timely and thought-provoking series of essays exploring the various manifestations of that identity. As such it will immeasurably assist our understanding of a community which often feels misunderstood and marginalised." – Professor Marianne Elliott, University of Liverpool, UK This study explores the idea voiced by journalist Henry McDonald that the Protestant, Unionist and Loyalist tribes of Ulster are ‘…the least fashionable community in Western Europe’.

MILITARY AND DEFENSE Restorative Justice, Humanitarian Rhetorics, and Public Memories of Colonial Camp Cultures
Reassessing Lukashenka Belarus in Cultural and Geopolitical Context
Marouf Hasian, Jr., Department of Communications, University of Utah, USA "In this impressively researched and deftly argued work, Marouf Hasian, Jr. demonstrates the instrumental function of rhetoric in shaping and reshaping (post)colonial pasts, presents, and futures. The author's theoretically adept, meticulously documented case analyses throw light on the 'amnesiac practices' that continue to fuel sociopolitical imaginaries. Hasian's book performs a timely intervention in humanitarian scholarship." —D. Robert DeChaine, California State University, Los Angeles, USA
Grigory Ioffe, Geospatial Department, Radford University, USA "In this refreshing rejection of globalist doxa concerning the march of democracy, Grigory Ioffe offers a balanced and informed account of one of the contemporary world's most successful political leaders, showing how Alexander Lukashenka has channeled the cultural imperatives of his country and exploited Belarus's strategic position to craft a distinct socio-economic order whose overriding ethos is equality of condition."—Michael Urban, Emeritus Professor of Politics, University of California, Santa Cruz, USA
The concentrations camps that existed in the colonised world at the turn of the 20th Century are a vivid reminder of the atrocities committed by imperial powers on indigenous populations. This study explores British, American and Spanish camp cultures, analysing debates over their legitimacy and current discussions on retributive justice.
What are the factors of Lukashenka's longevity at the helm of power? This question is addressed in the context of Belarusian history and identity, not as an outcome of a form of government deceitfully imposed on an allegedly benighted people whom better positioned and informed outsiders seek to enlighten and liberate.

General Valeriano Weyler, the Spanish ‘Reconcentración Policy,’ and American Calls for Military Intervention into Cub * 3. The ‘Faded Flowers’ and the Concentration Camps of the Anglo-Boer War * 4.
