The Importance of Campaign Visits in Presidential Nominating Contests

Swimming with Sharks

Campaigns That Matter By Jay Wendland, Daemen College

Assault on Mexican American Collective Memory, 2010–2015 By Rodolfo F. Acuña, California State University, Northridge

“In 1964, Nelson Rockefeller won the Oregon Republican Presidential Primary after advertising ‘he Cared Enough to Come to Corvallis.’ For the next half-century though, most political scientists questioned whether candidate visits actually translated into votes. Jay Wendland’s new book finally settles this question through a thorough analysis of the 2008, 2012, and 2016 presidential primaries. This work is a must-read for all scholars and journalists who are interested in how and why presidential campaign events matter.”

Political Theory for Today Richard Avramenko (University of Wisconsin, ravramenko@gmail.com) This series brings the wisdom of texts and the tradition of political philosophy to bear on salient issues of our time, especially issues pertaining to human freedom and responsibility, the relationship between individuals and the state, health and human flourishing, public and private virtues, and more.

“Rodolfo F. Acuña’s latest book is a powerful and urgent response to the advantageous erasure and co-optation of Mexican American experiences by powers that be. At a moment when facts are made up and used to serve those deeply invested in maintaining a hierarchal order of things, Professor Acuña offers us an arsenal of indisputable historical evidence we must use to fight back.” —Richard T.

Kurdish Societies, Politics, and International Relations Bahar Baser (Coventry University, bahar.baser@gmail.com)

By Kimberly Wilmot Voss, University of Central Florida

“Dr. Voss illuminates the complicated dynamics of social movements. Historians tend to give outsized attention to outspoken protesters, while overlooking those equally important advocates who do the vital work of documenting, publicizing, fund-raising, and pressuring politicians directly. Voss’s exploration of these understudied ‘well behaved’ women—four journalists and two government operatives—who moved feminism forward rebalances the history of the 1960s and 1970s.”

The Riggs War, 1913 to 1916 Reform and Revenge

By Paul Ryscavage, independent scholar Reformers, almost by definition, claim the moral high ground because they see abuse and malpractice and want to abolish it. But when their perceptions become clouded, the high ground can quickly turn into quicksand. This work examines the Riggs war, a case of acute “government overreach,” and the perpetrators involved.

Ecological Politics

For Survival and Democracy

By John Rensenbrink, emeritus, Bowdoin College

AMERICAN POLITICS History, Government, and Elections

New

Political Economy of Labor Repression in the United States By Andrew Kolin, Hilbert College

“Rensenbrink makes a powerful argument that an ecologically-guided politics can become ‘a brilliant instrument of healing and thriving.’ This book represents the culmination of a career in political science and in the Green Party, of which he is a co-founder. In both, he has been a strong voice for democracy and a courageous force for basic change. His book needs to be widely read by academics, students, and citizens seeking fundamental social and political change.” —David Whiteman, University of South Carolina

“Kolin investigates labor repression by looking at events at specific points in time, viewed entirely through the lens of class conflict between labor and capital. He studies the beginnings of repressive policies in the pre-industrial era during and in the immediate aftermath of the American Revolution. Then he turns to labor’s response to the rise of the factory system. Next, he shows how workplace policies in the late 19th and early 20th centuries excluded labor from decision making.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

A Comparative History of Motor Fuels Taxation, 1909–2009 Why Gasoline Is Cheap and Petrol Is Dear

New

Eisenhower at the Dawn of the Space Age Sputnik, Rockets, and Helping Hands By Mark Shanahan, University of Reading

“This is an accessibly-written and spirited account of President Eisenhower’s space policy that argues persuasively that it evolved out of long-term planning, rather than emergency reactions to the Soviet launching of Sputnik in 1957.”

By Carl-Henry Geschwind, independent scholar

“This book is one of the very best comparative studies we have on the international history of taxation. Geschwind brilliantly uses the history of gasoline taxation to reflect on fundamental issues of political economy. Consequently, the book is certain to stimulate a new wave of scholarship on the comparative history of consumption taxation. For all scholars and policymakers interested in the political and economic interaction of consumption and income taxation.” —W. Elliot Brownlee, University

“No president since Lincoln entered the White House in a more precarious political position than Gerald Ford in 1974, and the drama of those years has overshadowed Ford’s deeper statesmanship in defending the presidency and the separation of powers from the destructive furies the VietnamWatergate era unleashed. Hindman deserves our gratitude for throwing a light on this important subtext of Ford’s unique tenure as our only unelected president.”

Latinas in American Politics

By Karen Owen, Reinhardt University

Edited by Sharon A. Navarro, University of Texas, San Antonio; Samantha L. Hernandez, Arizona State University; and Leslie A. Navarro, independent scholar

Women Officeholders and the Role Models Who Pioneered the Way

Changing and Embracing Political Tradition

“With each election, the impact of Latinas in American politics is becoming much more visible and crucial. This timely volume broadens our knowledge of the important role that Latinas have in various avenues of American politics. The volume highlights additional paths of diverse research opportunities for studying Latina politics.”

“Combining three decades of electoral data with indepth interviews with 65 female office-holders from the halls of Congress to state legislature across the country, Karen Owen provides us with unique insight into how political role models motivate women to run for office. Bringing together research on strategic decision-making, political opportunity structures, historical accounts and psychology, she provides compelling evidence that symbolic representation matters a great deal.”

Gerald Ford and the Separation of Powers

By Russell Brooker, Alverno College

“This study is a fascinating, exhaustively researched, behind the scenes look at presidential debates. Self shows how the polished performances audiences consume are the result of intense struggles over competing campaign strategies, as seemingly insignificant minutiae become critical moments for candidates. Nearly thirty years of cases show that, on a macro level, presidential debates are critical communicative acts that require intensive strategic preparation.” —Mike Milford, Auburn University

Herbert Hoover and the Commodification of Middle-Class America By Edward Gale Agran, Wilmington College

Fractured Parties

By Anthony Stasi, Institute for Policy Research & Catholic Studies

“Edward Agran has imaginatively and intriguingly rethought a figure that still remains easier to condemn than to understand. In this fluidly written work, Herbert Hoover both comes alive and fits into a larger cultural and political context. In the process, readers also get a wonderful opportunity to rethink the meaning of that most peculiar creature, the American Middle Class.” —Robert D. Johnston,

“In a very timely and thought-provoking book, Anthony Stasi describes and analyzes the weakening of the political parties and the serious consequences of this development. If you want to understand how unconventional candidates such as Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have taken hold of primary voters and changed American politics, Fractured Parties has the answers.”

Big-Time Corruption in a Small Town

By Teri Finneman, South Dakota State University

“Barbee lays the foundation for a thorough analysis of the debate over the installation of the Ashe monument…. Barbee is convincing in his argument that the direct, racist power of the monuments has waned and that despite the efforts of neoConfederates, the Lost Cause ideology that gave birth to Monument Avenue has become a residual culture…. This case study is an important and suggestive framework for scholars.”

“Organized and written logically and persuasively, the chapters progress chronologically, through news coverage of female political candidates during various waves of feminism and shifts in journalistic norms. The case studies follow similar structures, enabling a clear progression of ideas and comparison across female candidates.… it is a lasting contribution to knowledge about political women pioneers specifically and women’s political history generally.”

“Thom Reilly’s deeply informed analysis warrants study by civic leaders, political officials, professional local-government managers, and students who hope to enter these public-service roles. It provides swift and hopefully lasting learning about abhorrent practices of all-too-easy corruption, thereby elevating understanding of necessities of elevated aspirations and practices of responsible government and other public affairs.” —Chester A.

How Economics Professors Can Stop Failing Us The Discipline at a Crossroads By Steven Payson, independent scholar

“I defend the right of academics in genuine sciences to set their own agendas free of political interference: they are the best judges of the best ways to extend their research. This does not apply to economics. As Payson explains, economics today is like Astronomy before Copernicus, hiding behind academic freedom to perpetuate a fantasy model of reality, undisturbed by its real world failures.” —Steve Keen, Kingston University

With new data and a host of analyses, they advance the notion of ‘descriptive elections’ and identify the significance of different types of elections for voter engagement and turnout. They show that mixed-gender contests can alter attitudes and behavior, providing important evidence of how voters use gender as a cue.”

Donahue challenges the conventional wisdom about participation in modern American communities through the story of Pimmit Hills, Virginia—one of the first federally-financed subdivisions built for World War II veterans. Its proximity to Washington, D.C., meant its residents had front-row seats to— and sometimes supporting roles in—the creation of policies that continue to shape the America we live in today, such as childhood vaccinations, discrimination, and information technology.

Unlocking the Wealth of Indian Nations “Unlocking the Wealth of Indian Nations provides a rare look at Native Americans and their history and society. In this scholarly and well-researched book, the authors convincingly show that federal policies are keeping Native Americans economically underdeveloped. They also show that it is important to end discriminatory policies against the Native Americans to let them realize their full potential and play a role in making America stronger.”

When the Levees Break

By Karen Kunz and Jena Martin, both West Virginia University

“Martin and Kunz throw (respectful) shade upon Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis’ famous declaration that ‘sunlight is the best disinfectant’ when it comes to securities regulation in the United States. They make clear that disclosure is no longer the best disinfectant when it comes to securities fraud as our securities laws have fallen woefully behind the technological advances that have dramatically changed modern securities trading.”

Lessons from the State of Hawai’i

How to Demolish Racism By Michael Haas, independent scholar

“Since Hawaii gained statehood in 1959 its five constituent minorities have dismantled the barriers that impeded equal human rights in most social, political, and economic spheres of life. Michael Haas draws on in-depth knowledge gained through his half-century of residence and research to analyze the multicultural Aloha norms and the instruments of change that have made Hawaiians the healthiest and happiest citizens of the 50 states, and their society a model for racial harmony.”

He discusses how IDD affected the direction of scholarship and practice of public administration from the late 19th century to the present day...

“Sterken’s political biography of Texas Lieutenant Governor Bill Ratliff is a great read. Sterken’s fine book explores the personal and social bases of the character that made Ratliff such a force for common sense and decency in an often tumultuous Texas politics. This book helps us all understand Bill Ratliff and his state better.”

“Anthropologist Morrissey examines how lowincome minority women make use of the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). By interviewing women involved in the program in Syracuse, New York, she attempts to understand why some women at high risk for poor birth outcomes, which she defines as premature births and low-birth-weight births, used the program and others did not. Morrissey provides thorough histories of both Syracuse and WIC and a useful explanation of the program’s structures and functions…. Recommended.”

Hidden Innovation

By Stuart Cunningham, Queensland University of Technology “Cunningham undertakes an impressive survey of the work that has been produced around the idea of innovation in the creative industries.

“Snyder takes six principles of effective regulatory policy and forensically applies them to legal services. She compares them across the US, the UK, Australia, and Canada. Each has its own approach to legal regulation. Some like the US are conservative while others like the UK are liberal. Using deep analysis and interviews with key players in legal services, Snyder refreshingly opens a dark, convoluted world to our gaze, which is long overdue.”

The Principle of the Separation of Powers

Edited by Robert E. Denton Jr., Virginia Tech

“Scholarship on the US Supreme Court has lacked a systematic assessment of the jurisprudence and impact of Justice Stevens across a range of legal issues. Fortunately, Professor Smith not only answers this call, he does so with an engaging style that does not sacrifice nuance or intellectual rigor. Smith employs multiple lenses to reveal Stevens’s fact-based, case-by-case approach to considering questions regarding Miranda rights, jury trials, search and seizure protections, and capital punishment.”

“Burnett has succeeded in producing an academic treatment whose objectivity and focus on constitutional law and politics (as distinct from the public policy ramifications of the decision) sets the book apart from others. In clear, wellorganized prose, he leads readers through the legal complexities, addressing the origins of the lawsuit, the various stages of the Supreme Court litigation, and the multi-faceted ‘backlash’ to the decision.… Highly recommended.”

Political Campaign Communication

Freedom of Speech and the Function of Rhetoric in the United States

“This volume is a comprehensive look at the digital dynamics at play in the 2016 election, including social media use for information gathering and agenda setting, agenda building on Twitter, and the role of online humor. The research included in this volume masterfully covers content creation, online strategy, and the effects of digital campaign communication up and down the ballot.”

“Donnelly’s important study takes a critical look at the issue of ‘free speech’ and the uses to which free speech arguments are put in U.S. political discourse. Exposing what he terms ‘a collection of false narratives’ at the root of liberal theories of free speech, Donnelly’s findings run against the grain of conventional approaches to the subject, some of which are either implicitly or overtly at work in composition classes across the country.”

TV News Making in U.S. Presidential Campaigns

Pirates, Slaves, and Sailors

A Premodern Case for Capitalism

Polls, Expectations, and Elections By Richard Craig, San Jose State University

Locke’s Political Thought and the Oceans By Sarah Pemberton, independent scholar

“While focused on one television network, Craig shows how journalists and commentators in media use polling data to turn presidential politics into a cage match. Survey results become a narrative device in these ‘unreality’ shows, activating a cast of characters whose ups and downs distort political reality and all too often drown out other forms of campaign coverage.”

Still Paving the Way for Madam President Revised Edition By Nichola D. Gutgold, Penn State University, Lehigh Valley

“Hillary Clinton made history as the first woman nominee for president of a major political party. When her bid to be Madam President fell short in the electoral college, many asked ‘what went wrong?’ Professor Gutgold reminds us once again that there are common barriers to putting a woman in the White House…. Americans have not yet encountered ‘Kairos,’ that opportune or supreme moment when it all comes together.” —Diana B. Carlin, emerita, Saint Louis University

“George Bragues’s well-written and thoroughly researched book is a much needed reminder to economists and others that there are thinkers before Adam Smith whose work is relevant to the case for capitalism. By also focusing on the pre-modern concern for community and other values often neglected in more modern arguments, Bragues helpfully expands the case for capitalism by emphasizing the importance of elements of human behavior other than self-interest.”

Walker Percy and the Politics of the Wayfarer

Augustine and Kierkegaard

“This is an important new study that carefully exposes the disturbing trend in contemporary media pundit culture to make sweeping pronouncements about the demographic segment known as ‘the millennials’ or ‘the youth vote’ based on stereotypes, anecdotal evidence, and broad polling data rather than on journalistic investigation. Novak hopes it’s not too late for media to get it right, even if young media consumers (and prosumers) have already migrated away. ” —Debra Vidali, Emory University

“This is an elegant and meticulous presentation of the political thought in existential context of America’s most original and deepest thinker of the 20th century. It’s obviously the result of years of reflection, and it might well be the best book ever published on Walker Percy. Smith, in fact, has not just written a book on this philosopher-novelist, but on the truth about who we are and what we’re supposed to do.”

“This book is a collection of fifteen clearly written and penetrating essays on the relation between Augustine and Kierkegaard. Written by both philosophers and theologians, the authors include many well-known scholars as well as some fresh and creative younger voices. Anyone interested in Kierkegaard or Augustine will learn much from this volume, which is a first-rate contribution to our understanding of both thinkers.”

Materialism and Social Inquiry in the Continental Tradition in Philosophy By Andrew M. Koch, Appalachian State University

Romanticism and Civilization examines romantic alternatives to modern life in Rousseau’s foundational novel Julie. It argues that through the novel’s drama and characters, Rousseau seeks to recover the sincerity and longing of the heart and the unity of life.

“Andrew Koch deftly identifies and critically examines the distinctive contributions of Kant, Marx, Darwin, Nietzsche, Weber, and French poststructuralism in the making of a postmetaphysical, social constructionist tradition of materialist social inquiry. Taken together, they yield ten guidelines and operating theses for contemporary materialist thinking. Particularly noteworthy is Koch’s elaboration of an evolving cultural materialist analytic stream as well as his elevation of Darwin as a major influence on Western epistemology and social inquiry.”

Discourses on Violence and Punishment Probing the Extremes

By Krešimir Petković, University of Zagreb This book brings together various discourses concerned with violence and punishment, paying special attention to the extreme variations of these phenomena. Starting from a narrow definition of violence as an infliction of physical harm, paired with a broad discussion of its causes and a wide definition of punishment as an authority claim to retribution or reform, the book maps and interprets political-theoretical discourses on the death penalty, historical explanations of the changes of violence and punishment, and comparative differences in punishment.

This volume explores some of the tensions and pressures of citizenship in Western liberal democracies. Citizenship has adopted many guises in the Western context, although historically citizenship is attached only to some variant of democracy. How democracy is configured is thus at the core of citizenship.

Zionism as a Theological Ideology

The Conversations of Adam and Eve in Paradise Lost

Nationalizing Judaism

By David Ohana, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev “Building upon his previous studies on Nietzschean inflections of early Zionist thought, the esteemed Israeli historian David Ohana deftly analyzes how Zionism has deployed traditional Jewish religious concepts and values to further nation building and patriotic commitments. He thus echoes the Cassandran chorus that bemoans the alliance of religion and nationalism as a grave threat both to Judaism and the Zionist project.”

Milton’s Socratic Rationalism By David Oliver Davies, University of Dallas

“What, exactly, did Adam and Eve do when they ate fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and what were the consequences? Milton put this question front and center in Paradise Lost; and this provocative monograph makes a compelling case that the English poet’s take on these questions owes as much to Xenophon, Plato, and Aristotle as it does to the Book of Genesis.”

Liberty, Individuality, and Democracy in Jorge Luis Borges This book analyzes Borges’s works through a political rather than a literary or cultural lens. It explores how Borges’s politically inspired works make the case for individual liberty against political oppression, militarism, and populism and examines the evolution of Borges’s democratic sensitivity by relating it to salient historical events.

“This rich volume sparkles with insight as a dozen scholars describe and debate the appropriation of Schmitt and Strauss in the contemporary Sinophone world. Anyone seeking to understand and then engage with Chinese criticism of liberalism and skepticism of Western modernity should start here.”

Sinclair Lewis and American Democracy By Steven J. Michels, Sacred Heart University

“Michels makes the case that Lewis and his work deserve greater attention than the author’s ‘minor’ status has heretofore afforded him. One of the primary strengths of Michels’s argument is his attention to the serious political ideology that marked Lewis’s novels. Lewis interrogated such institutions as the family, the economic system, and religion in addition to beliefs having to do with feminism and nationalism/racism—all matters that demand much more than superficial platitudes…. Highly recommended.”

Recovering Hegel from the Critique of Leo Strauss The Virtues of Modernity

By Edward Conze Translated by Holger R. Heine independent scholar

Tocqueville on American Enlightenment By Laurie M. Johnson, Kansas State University

“In a fine and unusually comprehensive analysis of honor in Tocqueville, Laurie Johnson shows how Tocqueville understood the sense of honor to shape American life in domains ranging from politics, business, and the military to family, religion, and race relations. The book makes an effective case for the continuing value of honor in liberal democratic societies today, and helps us envision a uniquely American code of honor attuned to the demands of our contemporary times.”

“This useful book explores, and defends, Hegel’s political philosophy in response to Leo Strauss’s critique of Hegel’s defense of modernity. The authors have some sympathy for Strauss’s critique of modernity, but they argue that Hegel anticipated Strauss’s reservations about modernity, and they agree with Hegel, contra Strauss, that virtue and freedom can be reconciled.” —Review of Politics

Filling the Jigsaw Puzzle with Metatheory By Michael Haas, independent scholar

“The near-total suppression of Conze’s ‘The Principle of Contradiction’ by the Nazi regime was a huge loss to Marxist scholarship. Holger Heine’s discovery of a rare copy of the German manuscript, and production of an English translation, is undoubtedly one of the great gains. There is much in the work to interest Marxists of course, but it also makes contributions that are of significance to all scholars of contemporary Philosophy of Logic…. To now have it available is an intellectual triumph.”

POLITICAL SCIENCE REVITALIZED By Michael Haas

“This is an extraordinary accomplishment from a highly original and knowledgeable thinker.

Monstrous Fictions

Reflections on John Calvin in a Time of Culture War By Carl J. Rasmussen, independent scholar

“Daniel Cullen has assembled some of America’s leading thinkers on liberal democracy and liberal education to consider an old but still pressing question: what type of education is suited to a free people such that they might enjoy, and maintain, their freedom? The contributions are fascinating on their own terms, and they interact with one another in surprisingly fresh ways. Essential reading for anyone who cares about the formation of democratic citizens.” —Bradley C. S. Watson, Saint Vincent College

“H. L. Mencken may have filed Calvinism next to cannibalism in his cabinet of horrors, but if he had read Carl Rasmussen, Mencken might have reconsidered. John Calvin emerges, on Rasmussen’s subtle and thoughtful reading, tonic for anyone tired of the clichés that dominate Christian reflection on U.S. politics. Even better, his book may help Christians remember their identity not as political partisans but pilgrims who seek a better country.”

On Rawls, the Social Contract, and Membership in the International Community

Why Patron of Statesmen?

A Law of Peoples for Recognizing States By Chris Naticchia, California State University, San Bernardino

Thomas More

By Travis Curtright, Ave Maria University “This stimulating collection of essays… revives interest in More by distilling from his writings and life experiences the very essence of this subtle, steely individual who began as a commercial lawyer and moral philosopher and ended up as Henry VIII’s only honest councilor. It is an approach that in the wrong hands could become clumsily instrumentalist and teleological. Fortunately, these contributors know the pitfalls and largely avoid them.”

“Beginning from a starting point of John Rawls’s Law of Peoples, Naticchia first provides a multichapter review of the criticism of Rawls’s social contract theory of international justice. The author concedes much of the criticism and, as a solution, seeks to transform Law of Peoples into a theory of state recognition rather than of international justice.… The author largely succeeds in creating a Rawlsian theory of recognition. He does so, insightfully, by placing recognition in the realm of Rawls’s nonideal theory for, if the community of nations were operating in the ideal realm, the question of recognition would be moot…. Recommended.”

From Paradox to Aretaic Moral Ideal

By René González de la Vega, National Autonomous University “Tolerance is at once liberalism’s biggest triumph and its most contested feature. In this book, René González de la Vega delves deep into the philosophical foundations of tolerance as found in the work of ‘deontological’ liberals such as John Rawls and Rainer Forst, and finds it wanting. The book’s careful analysis and powerful arguments present a challenge to be answered by all liberals of this persuasion.” —Catriona McKinnon, University of Reading

“Here is a book that spells out—in detail—the lives, ideas, and actions of utopian thinkers, publicists, and activists in the Great Depression…. Each substantive chapter is heavily footnoted; the author has obviously spent many bleary-eyed hours poring over the sources, and he has in some cases interviewed his subjects.

Augustine and the Environment

“A wide-ranging and compelling set of essays, which demonstrate the continuing importance of spatial theory in the political interpretation of books and films. This rich and evocative collection unearths both the spectacular and mundane political life of cities as diverse as Vienna, Osaka, and Liverpool, and follows a multitude of characters as they navigate the radical possibilities of their times. As serious as it shows the study of space and power to be, this is also an enjoyable travelogue through the political geographies of the capitalist city.”

“This collection of 12 essays focuses on the political contexts of producing, marketing, selling, and consuming food, as well as producing ‘food language.’ Each author approaches a major foodbased issue, such as vegetarianism, obesity, or organic foods, by analyzing and deconstructing the language of food as the basis for his or her research methodology. Essays are organized into four sections: ‘The Language of Food-Based Social Movements,’ ‘Food Language and Social Class,’ ‘The Language of Food Labeling,’ and ‘Critiques of Corporate Bureaucratic Language.’ … Highly recommended.” —CHOICE

Trust in the Capacities of the People, Distrust in Elites “Good offers a study that favorably compares participative democracy to liberal political systems.

Global Issues in the Context of Space By Jean Kachiga, SUNY Brockport

Kachiga examines globalization using the concept of space to contextualize discussion of global issues. He uses the concept of space to contextualize global issues because spaces are the theater of human activity. Global issues result from specific dynamics emerging between people and their activities within specific spaces. The growth of population, the increase of human activity, and the usage of new spaces explain the complexity and challenges of global issues today. 2016 • 278 pages 978-1-4985-0255-9 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-0256-6 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

The Outlaw State

By Philip W. Travis, State College of Florida, Manatee–Sarasota “Linking U.S. foreign policy in Latin America with the War on Terror in the Middle East, this provocative book shows how President Ronald Reagan initiated a hyper-interventionist tendency in American policy. Regime change, torture, and support for the worst brutality became standard parts of the Reagan Doctrine. Travis deftly shows how the president used the label of ‘terrorism’ to justify otherwise unacceptable actions.” —Jeremy Suri, University of Texas at Austin

“This book is truly groundbreaking, insofar as nothing on the interface of natural law and rhetoric has been published in recent decades.

Action, Ends, and Natural Rhetoric

By Vandana Bhatia, University of Houston

“In attempting to make nonviolence into a myth, the Italian philosopher Losurdo examines several theorists and practitioners of nonviolence from early Quakers and Martin Luther King Jr. in the US to Chinese demonstrators in Tiananmen Square. In the several cases he examines, the author finds that nonviolence rhetoric invariably occurs alongside some, and often considerable, violence…. Presenting several cases in which Gandhi endorsed violence, such as his support for Britain in WW I, the author portrays Gandhi’s nonviolence as a sham…. Recommended. ”

This book approaches space policy from the discipline of European studies and analyzes the European integration process through the lenses of political science, history, economics, and international relations. The strengths of each discipline are used to apply theoretical approaches to current issues in European space policy. It is the latest contribution to the growing debate on space policy and its role in the European integration process.

“Lipow examines various socioeconomic issues the US faces and how they affect American security. Each chapter covers an issue and suggests a reform. The author discusses some issues most would not see as connected to national security, such as social security. On some issues (immigration), the security connection is clearly made and the author’s discussion is eye opening, even counterintuitive.... Recommended.”

Believing Kennedy woefully inexperienced and Johnson too Machiavellian, Ike faulted both for often disregarding the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Nonetheless, Ike was reluctant to criticize their foreign policy initiatives publicly, except when his own administration came under attack…. Recommended.”

“Unquestionably the most comprehensive survey of Third Party involvement in dispute resolution in a single volume. This tour d’ force is equally valuable for practitioners, academics, course instructors and serious students alike.”

Drawn primarily from medical anthropology, the essays in this collection highlight the diverse ways in which various stigmatized health conditions interact with social inequalities and stigma to form syndemics. The authors delineate multiple examples of stigma-driven syndemics to demonstrate both the nature of disease interactions and how stigma contributes to, promotes, exacerbates, or perpetuates a syndemic.

The Dilemmas of Ethnic Policy A Global Perspective

By John Gaffar La Guerre, emeritus, University of the West Indies The Dilemmas of Ethnic Policy argues that ethnic conflict increases or decreases in relation to changes in the social structure and the location and distribution of political power. Ethnic grievances derive from lack of access to valued resources, and elites play a crucial role in allocating those resources. This book examines the experiences of five countries with a history of ethnic conflict: former Yugoslavia/ Bosnia-Herzegovina, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, and the US.

This book analyzes the results of environmental cooperation in conflict areas around the world. Through examination of multiple case studies, it explores the scope and effects of environmental cooperation on peacebuilding and conflict resolution. 2017 • 208 pages 978-1-4985-2841-2 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2842-9 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

The application of a common methodology allows each chapter to reconstitute and analyze the essential discourses of the case in question. In so doing, this volume successfully elucidates new horizons of understanding and action.” —Jacob Mundy, Colgate University

“Protracted interstate conflicts—those between or among states that last for more than 10 years and involve three or more crises—have led to some of the worst incidents of violence in the last century, and many remain unresolved, threatening the security of almost every region of the world. This book provides one of the most comprehensive studies of these cases, analyzing all 33 since the end of World War I…. The book makes a novel contribution to the literature on interstate conflict.… Recommended.”

This volume considers corruption as a multidimensional, complex phenomenon in which various forms of corruption may overlap at any given time. Extending the seemingly paradoxical notion of “legal corruption” to such settings as the USA, Spain, and the Czech Republic, the book augments understanding of corruption in democracies by focusing on conduct that is considered to be corrupt even though they are not explicitly defined as such by the law or the governing elites.

“Rackaway argues that reforms weakening political parties are the problem, not the solution to our democratic woes. With a broad historical sweep, he argues that parties link voters to policy choices in ways that no one else can—not the news media, not narrow interest groups, not direct democracy reforms such as the petition initiative. He advocates the abolition of the direct primary, the return of soft money, halving the size of Congressional districts, and experimenting with reforms like proportional representation.”

The World of Protracted Conflicts

Small States in the International System At Peace and at War

By Neal G. Jesse, Bowling Green State University, and John R. Dreyer, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology

“Creating the Third Force is a welcome addition to the growing literature on peacebuilding and conflict management. The volume advances, broadens, and deepens our knowledge of indigenous peacebuilding and conflict management. It demonstrates the efficacy of indigenous peacebuilding tools including storytelling, proverbs and metaphors, rituals and symbols, collaborative social systems, and deployment of visual and performing arts.”

“Dreyer and Jesse provide a compelling analysis of security challenges across a diversity of case studies, with remarkable success in engaging Realism (the limits of small state power) and Constructivism (the capacity of the small to seize opportunities and create new norms in IR). I recommend this book to scholars and colleagues seeking to gain a closer perspective of the restrictions and opportunities afforded to the smaller powers.”

Networked Information Technologies, Elections, and Politics Korea and the United States By Jongwoo Han, Syracuse University

This is a study on the changes that have been occurring in elections, politics, and democratic movements over the past decade. These changes show a paradigm shift in political discourse, from the industrial age mass media-based public sphere to new networked information technologies (NNITs)based cyber sphere. Han reveals the impacts of NNITs, and discusses how previously apolitical young generations have transformed themselves into a cohesive voting bloc and formidable constituency. 2017 • 232 pages 978-1-4985-6404-5 • $44.99 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-0-7391-4628-6 • $84.00 / £54.95 • Hardback (2012) 978-0-7391-4630-9 • $41.99 / £27.95 • eBook

The Politics and Culture of Modern Sports By Sheldon Anderson, Miami University

By Ali M. Nizamuddin, University of Illinois, Springfield

“Given the tremendous cultural, economic, and political impact of sports, it is surprising how little sport is analyzed and taught....Employing a historical framework, Anderson begins with the origins of modern European sport and its eventual transmission to former colonies, including the US…. This well-researched book is a useful first resource for scholars and students of sports and politics, though Jarvie offers more systematic discussion of a wider number of issues and Markovits and Rensmann’s argument is clearer and more ambitious.… Recommended.”

“Nizamuddinaddresses one of the most important but least discussed issues of our times. Seed is the first link in the food chain, and this work shows how Patents on life are the biggest threat to freedoms of farmers to save seed, and freedom of citizens to know what is in their food. If you care about your food and your freedom, this is a book you must read.” —Vandana Shiva 2017 • 230 pages 978-1-4985-0739-4 • $44.99 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-0-7391-9080-7 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback (2015) 978-0-7391-9081-4 • $41.99 / £27.95 • eBook

“Stuenkel provides a detailed chronology of the concept of the BRICS from when BRIC was first coined by Goldman Sachs as a financial concept in 2001 to its status today as a political and economic institution. Stuenkel examines what impact these rising powers will have on global affairs, and demonstrates, despite different regime types, intraBRICS cooperation has begun to occur on social and economic issues …. Highly recommended. ”

Why do some civil wars last a long time, while others end relatively quickly? Trust and Fear in Civil Wars examines the conditions under which individuals are willing to lay down their weapons under a settlement agreement. The author argues that wars are easiest to resolve when combatants believe that their adversaries will uphold a deal or that the costs of renewed war will be low. Several key sources of information inform this calculation. Drawing on both cross-national and case study data, including detailed interviews, the book demonstrates that when information suggests either that a peace agreement is likely to break down or that the results of a broken deal will be especially deadly, a settlement leaves combatants too vulnerable to countenance, resulting in wars lasting longer.

—Bogdan Szajkowski, University of Exeter

“This book convincingly stimulates a wider and deeper engagement with indigenous conflict management strategies in a world that has blinded many to the potency of non-Western traditions of conflict resolution, reconciliation, and peacebuilding. It is a welcome and essential resource for scholars and students of politics, culture, and conflict transformation who appreciate the relevance of culture and tradition as essential ingredients of peace, amity, friendship, and global understanding.”

Imagining Pakistan

Modernism, State, and the Politics of Islamic Revival By Rasul Bakhsh Rais, Lahore University

“Here at last is a solidly researched study about Pakistan that does not blame its Indian neighbor for the country’s ills, that does not consider the Islamic faith of its people an implacable obstacle to modernity, and that finds plentiful signs that the country’s democratic institutions, in spite of the battering they have taken from the country’s military leaders, have ample capacity to revive the liberal and pluralist ideals of Pakistan’s founding fathers.”

By Henry F. Carey, Georgia State University, and Stacey M. Mitchell, University of Georgia

“This impressive new book makes a truly unique contribution to the study of international law by students of international relations. Its original methodological and pedagogical approach, relying on the device of moot courts, will be of great use to teachers and students in both fields.”

The Evolution of Strategic Doctrine

Tourism and Prosperity in Miao Land By Xianghong Feng, Eastern Michigan University

China’s Cyber Warfare By Jason R. Fritz, Bond University

“Xianghong Feng’s book illustrates the role of tourism developers in shaping China’s underdeveloped regions. Using power in tourism as a conceptual framework, she analyzes the intricacies of host communities responding to tourism development and cultural commodification. Her book adds a rich and meaningful voice to contemporary debates on social and spatial transformation in tourist destinations in China and elsewhere.”

“China’s Cyber Warfare: The Evolution of Strategic Doctrine establishes a common vocabulary for engaging the ever-changing field of cyber warfare studies. By breaking down and delineating the subject matter into its core elements, clearly contextualized within an historical framework, Jason Fritz has provided a valuable framework for anyone trying to understand the multifaceted role of cyber warfare within China’s broader strategic doctrine.”

Kazakhstan in the Making

Legitimacy, Symbols, and Social Changes

Edited by Marlene Laruelle, George Washington University

By Martin B. Gold, George Washington University

“Large, varied, and rapidly changing, Kazakhstan can sometimes seem inscrutable. In fact, all we need to understand this country of great cultural, economic, and political importance is the excellent research conducted by scholars at the top of their respective fields. Kazakhstan in the Making is the most wide-ranging, comprehensive, and welcome addition to the literature we have seen in many years.”

“Gold provides an extremely accurate assessment of the substantial alterations to the Taiwan legislation put forward by the Carter administration and how the final approval in Congress occurred. This is an excellent historical and procedural study.” —Dennis DeConcini, former U.S. Senator from Arizona

—Edward Schatz, University of Toronto

“As the contemporary Senate seeks a return to its original purposes, Gold reminds us of a time when policies were crafted and ideas considered based on both particular interests and arguments in favor of the common good.”

The South China Sea Disputes By Nalanda Roy, Armstrong State University “Competing territorial claims, combined with Chinese expansion and militarization of the South China Sea, make this one of the most potentially dangerous areas of the world. Nalanda Roy provides a thoughtful overview of the strategic significance of the region, its historical and current disputes, the complex international legal and institutional environment, and possible avenues to minimize the threat of violent conflict.”

“Hwang argues convincingly that Korean democratization and globalization explain South Korea’s increasingly important role in international affairs. Blending broad history with a series of wellfocused quantitative analyses of trade, foreign aid, and UN voting, he shows how domestic politics and globalization explain South Korea’s complex foreign policy, providing substantial insight into Korea’s increasing global presence and its evolving role in Northeast Asian geopolitics.”

“Rethinking Japan argues that the changes taking place in Japan are of ‘seminal importance.’ Its sustained analysis of the emergence and consolidation of the right wing in Japan confirms this assessment. This study is particularly impressive in offering concrete details and a convincing explanation for the rise and policies of the current Shinzō Abe administration.”

“With extensive qualitative and quantitative data collected in China, this book develops an informational theory to account for the coexistence of China’s resilient authoritarianism and its high decentralization.... Methodologically, Chen substantiates her points by detailed cases, in-depth interviews and statistical analysis of petitions.”

The Site of the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus in Singapore Entwined Histories of a Colonial Convent and a Nation, 1854–2015 By Sandra Hudd, University of Tasmania

“Based on rich empirical material and detailed analysis, Ortega exposes the logics of contemporary Philippine ‘development’ that is built on accumulation by dispossession.… The wide-ranging ethnographic overage of sites and angles, most significantly offering perspectives of life both inside and outside of the gated communities, sets this book apart from other treatments of the subject. … A truly compelling read and inspiring achievement!”

“Sandra Hudd tells the absorbing story of colonial and post-colonial Singapore from a perspective of a particular site that was for nearly 130 years in the hands of the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus. Now, updated and commercialized, it is Chijmes, designed to attract tourists, shoppers, and fine diners. Dr. Hudd argues that heritage conservation, a problem in many cities, is in an especially ambiguous position in restlessly changing Singapore.”

A Critical Analysis of the Green Job Solution

Heritage Politics

By Tze May Loo, University of Richmond

Japan’s Backroom Politics By Watanabe Tsuneo Translated with commentary by Robert D. Eldridge, emeritus, Osaka University

“Heritage Politics provides a deeply researched and nuanced account of the transformations undergone by Shuri Castle as an iconic site of struggle over Okinawan and Japanese identity. Tze May Loo compellingly demonstrates the necessity of joining close analysis of material culture with critical interrogation of colonialism and imperialism in both the prewar and postwar periods.”

“Robert Eldridge’s translation of Tsuneo’s 1967 book on political factions in Japan in the 1950s and 1960s is an invaluable reference for serious students of the formative years of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP). Eldridge prefaces Tsuneo’s work with an examination of Tsuneo’s years as a political reporter and his access to key faction leaders….This work is recommended for graduate collections on Japan.

Edited by Sigal Ben-Rafael Galanti, Beit Berl College; Nissim Otmazgin, Hebrew University of Jerusalem; and Alon Levkowitz, Bar-Ilan University

“Gerald R. Gems has written a terrific book that examines the role of sport during the American occupation of the Philippines. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, Gems adroitly and in great detail makes clear the role of sport in regards to the policies and programs intended for Filipinos. This is essential reading for those interested in a greater understanding of sport, America, the Philippines, and international relations.” —David K. Wiggins, George Mason University

This book explores the varied disciplinary viewpoints in explaining the phenomenon of migration and development in Africa. It presents the main trends in African migration in the past two decades, analyzing major migration trends, various migration hubs, and underlying factors explaining the changing nature of migration across the continent.

“In this well-researched, well-written, and fascinating study, the author provides us with valuable and penetrating insights into the nature and practice of British imperialism in Africa, focusing especially on the nuts and bolts of development planning, the centrality of agriculture to the colonial economy, and the clash and ultimate failures of development ideologies in Africa during the late colonial period. Using Africa’s most populous nation, Nigeria, as a case study, the book rejects the conventional explanations, by scholars, that are focused on implementation.”

Diplomats and Lobbyists from Truman to Nixon

American Foreign Policy and the Destruction of Secularism in the Middle East

Advocating for Israel

By Natan Aridan, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

“This study is a well-researched corrective to those who believe Israel has ignored or undervalued diplomacy. Israel’s diplomats, working closely with politically well-connected American Jewish supporters, advanced Israeli interests, even when government-to-government relations were strained. Israel and its supporters worked ‘the system’ effectively, especially in the early years of the state, to obtain critically needed assistance.”

Badie investigates the manner in which American foreign policy in Iraq artificially shifted the balance of power in the region and brought religious identities to the foreground. Deposing Saddam Hussein resulted in a new regional order that diminished the strength of secular nationalism, elevated Iran and Saudi Arabia as regional rivals, and by implication, established a new ideological paradigm that privileged competing religious factions over secular ideals.

“By testing the Propaganda Model outside of the country for which it was developed, and by applying it to the rapidly evolving Chinese media scene, this book adds to the growing literature on the continuing and global relevance of the model and provides new insights on the operation and likely future direction of the Chinese media. For Chinese media specialists and those interested in the political economy literature.” —Andrew Mullen, Northumbria University

Contemporary Anti-Muslim Politics Aggressions and Exclusions

By Kenneth J. Long, University of Saint Joseph

Gender, Migration, and Development in Africa

“Kenneth Long provides a particularly timely and badly needed treatment of the sources and consequences of anti-Muslim attitudes and politics in contemporary times. His compact and yet wideranging and well-argued book focuses not on Islamophobia, but rather on what he convincingly shows is the ‘enemy-ization’ of Muslims more generally—those who are, are considered to be, or are thought to be Muslim.”

By Sussie U. Aham-Okoro, Howard University

“Uniquely significant in its revisionist approach and intriguing reframing of the socially-constructed traditional role of women as homemakers, this study blazes the trail not only as a gender-based exploration of international migration but also as a compelling analysis on how African diaspora communities are turning brain drain into brain gain through vigorous engagement in their places of origin. A must-read!” —Apollos Okwuchi Nwauwa,

Human Rights in Nigeria’s External Relations

Building the Record of a Moral Superpower

Nigeria’s Niger Delta

Militancy, Amnesty, and the Postamnesty Environment By Sabella Ogbobode Abidde, Alabama State University

By Philip Aka, Chicago State University

“Abidde presents an exposé of the political, social, and economic crises arising from oil exploration and exploitation in Nigeria’s economic basket, the Niger Delta. This is an indictment of the Nigerian political elites who, through corrupt practices, have brought the country to her knees and created environmental catastrophe and an economic, social, and political quagmire for millions of Nigerians.”

“Brilliantly written, Dr. Philip Aka has emerged with a classic book that grapples with incessant human rights abuses and challenges in Nigeria. This book will be useful inside and outside the academy. Here’s the volume of readings and ideas that directs us towards the much needed human rights famished country: Nigeria.” —Emeka Nwadiora, Temple University

Trade Unions and the Age of Information and Communication Technologies in Kenya By Eric E. Otenyo, Northern Arizona University

This book provides invaluable insights not just for developing labor-rich economies such as Kenya, but, most importantly, for developed countries.” —Wanjala S. Nasong’o, Rhodes College

Witchcraft as a Social Diagnosis

Traditional Ghanaian Beliefs and Global Health By Roxane Richter and Thomas Flowers, both World Missions Possible, and Elias Bongmba, Rice University

This interdisciplinary manuscript examines one nonprofit’s five years of medical outreach in the condemned witches village of Gnani in Ghana, focusing on the clashes between traditional Ghanaian beliefs, African religious tenets, and contemporary Western medical science. The research draws upon 1,714 patient interventions and 95 personal interviews, exposing the inherent challenges of separating indigenous beliefs surrounding fate and witchcraft convictions from contemporary interpretations of biological pathogens, structural and gender-based violence, and evidence-based medicine.

Drone Nation

By Geoff Martin and Erin Steuter, both Mount Allison University

“Integration in Energy and Transport is a pathbreaking study of integration processes across Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Turkey. Building upon diverse theoretical foundations, Alexandros Petersen convincingly assesses both the achievements of regional integration and their limitations. At the book’s core is an analysis of how energy and transportation networks, established with extensive international assistance, contribute to a surprising degree to institutional harmonization across participating states.”

“This refreshing and frank exploration of the sudden rise of drones in warfare and commerce raises all the right questions, and does so with critical elan rare in public discourse. The authors do so with clarity and insight that bring alive the complex issues technologies pose. Their sensible admonition is to thoroughly debate the use of drones before they become normal—that is, before it’s too late to chart a different course.” —John Tirman, MIT

And, as this rich volume makes clear, both Israel and Turkey have undergone profound transformations in the recent past.

Dialogue, Protest, Violence

Israel and Its Arab Minority, 1948–2008 By Gadi Hitman, Ariel University

“Is the wind of change in the Arab world really over? From different disciplinary perspectives, Beyond the Arab Spring in North Africa investigates from within the revolutionary path of the North African societies. Of particular worth is the interlinking narrative among individual and collective rights, religion and media, and youth and women. A remarkably accurate and readable analysis of the Arab Spring and its aftermath. ”

“This study represents a unique approach to the issue of a national minority within a nation-state. It develops a model of dialogue that moves from negotiations to protest to violence depending on a series of variables. Gadi Hitman analyzes 17 test cases covering sixty years of tension between two national and strong players. His conclusions might serve as the basis for a future re-definition of Jewish–Arab relations within the State of Israel.”

Edited by Veronica Ward and Richard Sherlock, both Utah State University

Historical Antecedents and Contemporary Challenges

“This is a fine collection of essays that takes seriously the religious beliefs that percolate beneath the purveyors of global terrorism. But it does so with a level of sophistication, careful scholarship, and respectful analysis that is rarely found among scholars and activists who often write and opine on this subject.” —Francis J. Beckwith, Baylor University

By Obed Mfum-Mensah, Messiah College

“This book is a refreshingly thorough intersectional analysis of class, gender, geography, and religion and their interplay in the provision of education to children in sub-Saharan Africa. It is very well researched, written in accessible language, and challenges us to consider, among other things, whether the education of children in sub-Saharan Africa should be a human right or human capital issue.” —Martha Donkor, West Chester University

Russia in the Wake of the Cold War By Dorothy Horsfield, Australian National University

Holocaust Education in Lithuania

By Christine Beresniova, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

“Beresniova provides deep insight into the cultural struggles over history and memory that are occurring within and between European states in this beautifully written and sensitively rendered study. Beresniova explores the shifting meanings of the Holocaust in Lithuania as educators navigate the local and international politics surrounding memory. This sympathetic but critical analysis captures local perspectives and, crucially, shows how foreigner advocates often fail to understand local history, culture, and language, which undermines dialogue and progress for all involved.”

“This is a broad-ranging and challenging analysis of the travails of liberal pluralism during the Cold War and after. It provides an original, stimulating, and idiosyncratic intellectual history of contemporary Russia and its interactions with Western intellectual traditions. Covering a wide cast of thinkers and issues, an interesting read is guaranteed.” —Richard Sakwa, University of Kent

People’s Diplomacy in the Cold War

“Pardo connects his own findings on external Israeli perceptions of the EU, Europe more generally, and individual member countries to the literature on the EU’s normative power. Pardo has correctly identified a certain lacuna, which he fills with many years of careful research, on Israeli perceptions of the EU…. This book is a most valuable contribution to the discourse, and its author remains a towering figure in the academic literature on EU–Israel relations.”

“Riveting with theoretically informed and empirically founded critical analysis of the futility of malecentered discourses and practices endorsed by leaders purportedly leading national liberation struggles and state-building institutions in Sudan and South Sudan. A timely book by a committed intellectual and professional academic and a must read for young African change agents striving to avoid historic setbacks of failed ruling elites in subSaharan Africa.”

“This rare book exemplifies the best in comparative politico-religious analyses to capture differences in violent and pacifist Muslim (Sufi) responses, as tools to negotiate space(s) and resources in Northern Nigeria and Senegal, respectively. Mahmud ably traces these contrasting Muslim experiences to historical junctures—colonial policies, organizational structures of Sufi Brotherhoods, as well as the role of post-colonial states.” —Abdoulaye Saine, Miami University

Hungary’s Crisis of Democracy By Peter Wilkin, Brunel University “This book explains Hungary’s current democratic crisis by situating it within the semi-periphery of the modern world system, arguing that the Fidesz party’s political dominance involves an attempt to create a developmental state in the face of social crises brought about by neo-liberalism, an attempt that is simultaneously constrained by that ideology.… The book’s main strength is providing a clear, detailed overview of political developments in this unfortunately quite relevant case of democratic failure….

Dropping out of Socialism

Indeed, the author conveys the multiple links with the economic crisis, the education system, the labour market as well as the personal impulse, between hope, disillusionment, opportunity, and resentment.” —Isabelle Felici, University Paul-Valéry

“Focusing on various forms of self-consciously alternative cultures that formed in Eastern Europe under communist rule, this innovative collection explores practices which cannot be framed in the familiar terms of dissidence and loyalty. Eschewing politics—at least in the terms which had been drawn up by the regime—hippies in Estonia, East German punks, followers of ‘Eastern’ gurus and aesthetics in Romania, and others found their own ways of ‘dropping out’.” —David Crowley, Royal College of Art

“Women in Mexican Politics provides an original and timely study showing how much there is to learn from the experiences of women involved in Mexican political parties and politics. Through interviews and quantitative analysis, Vidal Correa tackles the thornier issues of gender quotas and parity, and documents at a time of major political party turmoil how women have become central to every level of political participation in Mexico.”

European Institutions, Democratization, and Human Rights Protection in the European Periphery

Eurasianism and the European Far Right Reshaping the Europe–Russia Relationship Edited by Marlene Laruelle, George Washington University

“Essays provide a good overview of Far Right developments in European countries. As a case in point, Vügar İmanbeyli’s analysis of Turkish debates…is excellent in showing the facets of Turkish ‘Eurasianism’ as this ideology has appeared in recent decades. Similarly, Sofie Tipaldou provides a helpful, thorough presentation of how the Greek Golden Dawn has built on its neo-Nazi roots to acquire increased public presence.”

Edited by Henry F. Carey, Georgia State University

“Carey is to be congratulated on bringing together the right authors, the right cases, and asking the right questions at the right time. The book tells the story of halting Europeanization, local nationalisms, geopolitics, and the different attitudes of states on the European periphery to European institutions. It is highly recommended.” —Roger Mac Ginty, University of Manchester

Culture and National Security in the Americas Edited by Brian Fonseca and Eduardo A. Gamarra, both Florida International University

Russian Studies and Comparative Politics Views from Metatheory and Middle-Range Theory By Frederic J. Fleron Jr., emeritus, State University of New York

“Nobody has done more over the years than Frederic J. Fleron Jr. to close the methodological gap between information-rich Soviet/Russian Studies and the theory-driven field of comparative politics, and to facilitate learned communication between the study of the Soviet Union and Russia and the mainstream discipline of political science. In this study, Fleron has successfully provided a well-crafted portal into the possibilities and opportunities for the application of middle-range theory in the field of Russian studies.” —Robert Sharlet, Union College 2017 • 358 pages 978-0-7391-2961-6 • $110.00 / £75.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-5038-3 • $104.00 / £70.00 • eBook

Nationalism, Islamism, and Violent Conflict in Post-Soviet Space By Tim Epkenhans, University of Freiburg

Brazil and Canada

Economic, Political, and Migratory Ties, 1820s to 1970s By Rosana Barbosa, Saint Mary’s University

“Geopolitically distant but apparently obvious partners, divided by US power and global neighborhoods, Brazil and Canada share a long and frustrating relationship of friendship sought but so far never achieved. In a richly-documented and pioneering work complete with surprising insights, Professor Rosana Barbosa explores this continuing dilemma—both historical backdrop and its diplomatic, commercial, and migratory dimensions.”

—Gregory Weeks, University of North Carolina, Charlotte

This work examines the most influential historical, geographic, cultural, political, economic, and military considerations shaping national security policies throughout the Americas. Essays explore the actors and institutions responsible for perpetuating security cultures over time and the changes and continuities in contemporary national security policies.

By Fernanda Vidal Correa, Panamerican University

“This volume offers fresh perspectives on critical questions in the study of gender quotas. It explores the impact of quotas on women’s election in three important Latin American countries: quota laws across Argentine provinces; quotas and ballot structure in Peru; and why Brazil’s quota laws produced only a minimal impact on numbers of women elected.” —Mala Htun, University of New Mexico

Rethinking Victimhood

By Cecilia Macón, University of Buenos Aires “In researching and writing this painful and timely book, Cecilia Macón is forced to reassess her preconceptions about gender, violence, subjectivity, survival, agency, victimhood, testimony, and affects. In this brilliant examination of affect and sexual violence in the Argentine trials against humanity, Macón’s readers are made to reevaluate their own preconceptions in a reading experience that is as uncomfortable as it is rewarding.” —Andrea Noble, Durham University

“John Waldron brings together texts that are often read in terms of the Neo-baroque and combines these with some unexpected choices to demonstrate how these writers engage with imperial, colonial representations of Latin American and the Caribbean throughout the twentieth and twentyfirst centuries.… The scope of Waldron’s project is impressive, and he tackles it with intelligence, acumen, and compassion.”

Honduras in Dangerous Times Resistance and Resilience

By James J. Phillips, Southern Oregon University “Honduras did not receive much media attention until a 2009 military coup … and its following strong and well-organized popular resistance altered how many outside observers thought about the country. The resilience of this resistance, however, came as no surprise to anthropologist Phillips, who has accompanied social movements in that country for more than 40 years. Phillips documents a range of Indigenous, religious, cultural, legal, and political forms of resistance to long-standing patterns of exploitation and domination…. Recommended. ”

Presidential Leadership in the Americas since Independence By Guy Burton, Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government, and Ted Goertzel, Rutgers University

“The authors approach an old issue in an innovative manner. They examine the question of what factors lead to transformational presidents but do so in a comparative manner with the US and Latin America. The analysis tries to bridge the disciplines of history and political science....There is much in this book to be commended, especially the conscious effort to bring in historical and political science approaches. ” —CHOICE

Fragile States in the Americas

Edited by Jonathan D. Rosen, Florida International University, and Hanna S. Kassab, Northern Michigan University “Through the use of case studies intended to illuminate the many security challenges facing Latin America – including drug trafficking, organised crime, terrorism and more – the authors seek to conceptualise the idea of state fragility. The authors suggest that, without serious reform efforts aimed, for example, at rooting out corruption, progress cannot be made.” —Survival: Global Politics and Strategy

ABOUT LEXINGTON BOOKS’ POLITICAL SCIENCE PUBLISHING Founded in 1970, Lexington Books serves as Rowman & Littlefield’s imprint for publishing specialised new works by established and emerging scholars, with a critically acclaimed list of high-quality academic works that make a significant contribution to today’s scholarship. At a time when many publishers are cutting back on publishing monographs and edited collections, Lexington Books is dramatically expanding its programme, including its list in Political Science and International Relations.

https://rowman.com/Lexington EDITORIAL SUBMISSIONS Lexington Books is currently reviewing new manuscript proposals in Political Science and International Relations. To submit a proposal for consideration, please send a prospectus, a detailed table of contents, one or two sample chapters, and your curriculum vitae. If you are proposing a contributed volume, please include titles/ affiliations for each of the contributors, and we would accept chapter abstracts in lieu of sample chapters. Please do not send your entire manuscript. An acquisitions editor will contact you to request additional materials. The prospectus should include the following: 1. A description of the book, what makes it unique, and why you are qualified to write it. 2. A description of your target audience (undergraduate or graduate students? scholars? professionals?). 3. An analysis of competing or similar books (including publishers and dates). 4. A list of courses in which your book might be used as a text or supplementary text. 5. An indication of whether any part of your manuscript has been published previously, and if it is a doctoral dissertation, what changes you are proposing to prepare it for publication. 6. The length of the manuscript in 12-point type on double-spaced 8 1/2” by 11” pages. 7. If the manuscript is not complete, an estimation of when it will be finished. 8.
