Globalization and Its Costs

Dhirendra Vajpeyi (University of Northern Iowa)

The last two decades of the 20th century witnessed drastic political and economic changes. As the sole superpower in world affairs, the U.S. has used its economic and military power to shape the rest of the world in its own image. Hence the need to develop a balanced, just, and holistic approach not only to meet the narrow trade and finance interests of developed democracies but also to encompass other crucial global concerns such as environmental degradation, human rights, immigration, private and public governance, poverty, income inequality, and political instability—issues and challenges directly or indirectly connected to human security. Though globalization has elevated hundreds of millions of people around the world from dire poverty, it has posed new challenges to humanity. Globalization and Its Costs will include analytical and empirical work from scholars in a comparative context. Topics should be of current interest, interdisciplinary and policy-oriented, and broadly related to human security and sustainable development paradigms.

Latinos and American Politics Henry Flores (St. Mary’s University Texas)

Latinos and American Politics is concerned with the role Latinos, of all national origins and races, play in the American political process. Latinos are the largest minority group in the United States and have become the single most important group in presidential politics. This series, interdisciplinary in nature, seeks to advance the knowledge of Latino politics in the academy. The series includes works that focus on racial identities and their impact on intra-Latino relations and politics, Latina politics broadly defined to include the politics of gender, institutional and identity politics, electoral politics, community level politics and activism, the shifting types of politics Latinos have played in order to have their agendas entertained by political institutions, the behavior of Latina/o politicians, and the effects of the Civil Rights Acts on the political participation of Latinos.

Russian, Eurasian, and Eastern European Politics Michael O. Slobodchikoff (Troy University)

Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, little attention was paid to Russia, Eastern Europe, and the former Soviet Union. The United States and many Western governments reassigned their analysts to address different threats. With the descent of Ukraine into civil war, scholars and governments have lamented the fact that there are not enough scholars studying Russia, Eurasia, and Eastern Europe. We invite contributions addressing problems related to the politics and relations in this region. This series is open to contributions from scholars representing comparative politics, international relations, history, literature, linguistics, religious studies, and other disciplines whose work involves this important region. Successful proposals will be accessible to a multidisciplinary audience, and advance our understanding of Russia, Eurasia, and Eastern Europe.

Security in the Americas in the 21st Century Jonathan Rosen (Universidad del Mar)

Countries throughout the Americas face many challenges in the 21st century such as drug trafficking, organized crime, environmental degradation, guerrilla movements, and terrorism among many other major threats. Security in the Americas in the 21st Century will feature contributions on topics focusing on security issues in specific countries or regions within the Americas.

Politics, Literature, & Film

Lee Trepanier (Saginaw Valley State University)

This interdisciplinary series examines the intersection of politics with literature and/or film. The series is receptive to works that use a variety of methodological approaches, focus on any period from antiquity to the present, and situate their analysis in national, comparative, or global contexts. Politics, Literature, & Film seeks to be truly interdisciplinary by including authors from all the social sciences and humanities, such as political science, sociology, psychology, literature, philosophy, history, religious studies, and law.

Presidential Swing States

The City and Sex

Edited by David Schultz, Hamline University, and Stacey Hunter Hecht, Bethel University

By Mary Beth McConahey, Saint Vincent College

Why Only Ten Matter

“All U.S. voters are equal, but some are more equal than others. The more equal ones reside in the handful of competitive states that determine who becomes president. America’s current and future political map is identified in this useful book.” —Larry J. Sabato, University of Virginia

NEW

Private Vice and Public Scandal in the American Republic McConahey examines American political sex scandals at the national level. Studying these events over time with an emphasis on the evolving responses of both statesmen and citizens reveals the republic’s deteriorating moral health and illuminates the country’s dangerous tendency toward servitude. Using scandals as a window through which to glimpse our deterioration, the book identifies a trajectory of decline beginning in the twentieth century.

“Just a handful of swing states determines who wins the White House. Here’s a smart look at the landscape that controls American politics, how it’s changed and where it’s headed.” —Susan Page, USA Today 2016 • 386 pages 978-0-7391-9524-6 • $110.00 / £75.00 • Hardback 978-0-7391-9525-3 • $109.99 / £75.00 • eBook

The Bully Pulpit, Presidential Speeches, and the Shaping of Public Policy

Edited by Jeffrey S. Ashley, Eastern Illinois University, and Marla J. Jarmer, Danville Area Community College “This book does a wonderful job of combining political science, history, and communication studies. Contributors unite under a single theme: the president is in a unique position to use language to influence public policy. With historical background and analysis of what each president has attempted to do, each chapter is informative and fun to read.” —Zachary Smith, Northern Arizona University

“Merrifield and Poulson offer substantial insight into the reasons why countries find themselves with excessive deficits and debt. By examining the successful debt control measures in Switzerland and Sweden, they provide a strong foundation for their own proposal to limit deficit spending and reduce the national debt.” —Randall G. Holcombe, Florida State University 2016 • 204 pages 978-1-4985-1809-3 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1810-9 • $79.99 / £52.95 • eBook NEW

The American Revolution, State Sovereignty, and the American Constitutional Settlement, 1765–1800 By Aaron N. Coleman, University of the Cumberlands

“Coleman’s new book on the place of state sovereignty in the Founders’ federal system makes clear again what everyone once knew: that ‘No taxation without representation’ was a claim to government by the state legislatures whose power was primary when the Imperial Crisis began, and that the U.S. Constitution was sold as perpetuating that principle. Today’s system amounts to an inversion of what the Revolution was intended to establish.” —Kevin R. C.

Private Financing of Public Transportation Infrastructure Utilizing Public-Private Partnerships

Edited by Wendell C. Lawther and Lawrence L. Martin, both University of Central Florida “Any nation’s ability to fully realize its competitive potential depends on making smart infrastructure choices. But we need a better understanding of the role of the public and private sectors, as well as the partnerships between them, to provide Americans with the infrastructure they need to build greater economic opportunity and create more and better jobs.

Connecting with Constituents

Identification Building and Blocking in Contemporary National Convention Addresses By Tammy R. Vigil, Boston University

“Connecting with Constituents demonstrates the continuing importance of speeches at national political conventions for creating a sense of shared identity between candidates and the people. The useful comprehensive discussion of contemporary keynotes, surrogate speeches, candidate acceptance speeches, and speeches by candidates’ wives illuminates important trends in contemporary politics, especially the very different visions of the electorate expressed in recent Republican and Democratic conventions.” —Robert C.

Language Assistance under the Voting Rights Act Are Voters Lost in Translation?

By Shauna Reilly, Northern Kentucky University

“Dr. Reilly begins a conversation that is both vital in an applied policy sense, and also grounded in theoretical principals of political participation and policy implementation. Reilly points out that while the national government has created guidelines concerning translation of ballots and voting materials more generally, ultimately, state and local governments have control over implementation.” —Martha Kropf, University of North Carolina, Charlotte

Civic Education in the Twenty-First Century A Multidimensional Inquiry

Edited by Michael T. Rogers, Arkansas Tech University, and Donald M. Gooch, Stephen F. Austin State University

“At a time of weakening civic institutions and heightened political polarization, civic education is of singular importance. And yet it too rarely receives the attention it deserves, by both researchers and members of the policy community. This book is a huge step forward in bringing together state-of-the-art research into civic education, broadly construed.” —David E. Campbell, University of Notre Dame

“Dr. Morrissey has crafted a provocative study of one of the largest maternal and child health programs in the US. With a keen anthropological eye, she brings us inside the maze of a complex set of public services, showing how families navigate the system, to meet their needs. Insightful and real, this ethnography glimpses into the lives around which so much effort in public health is organized.” —Timothy De Ver Dye, University of Rochester

The Bottle, The Breast, and the State

The Politics of Infant Feeding in the United States By Maureen Rand Oakley, Mount Saint Mary’s University

“Oakley carefully navigates a middle path between breastfeeding activists and detractors, demonstrating how women’s breastfeeding decisions are subject to competing social forces, the policy environment, the workplace, and their support systems. She calls upon scholars and activists to move beyond the breast vs. bottle dichotomy to engage in a productive and supportive conversation about infant care.” —Karen Kedrowski, Winthrop University

Reinterpreting a Native American Identity

Examining the Lumbee through the Peoplehood Model By Eric Hannel, independent scholar

“This book will, hopefully, shift contemporary debates about identity away from settler-colonial metrics that have been adopted by some of our Indigenous relatives. It is sure to make readers rethink what they assume to be correct about many issues ranging from federal recognition, sacred sites, language revitalization, and even spirituality.” —Michael Lerma, Northern Arizona University

Latinos and the Voting Rights Act The Search for Racial Purpose By Henry Flores, St. Mary’s University

He briefly touches on the impact of Shelby County v. Holder (2012), and calls for a recommitment to the proposition that all citizens, including Latino citizens, should have an equal electoral voice.

This brief book offers many extensive direct quotes from Burke’s respondents, allowing readers to evaluate her claims about rationality and potential cross-party alliances…. Recommended. ” —CHOICE

The Rhetorical Invention of America’s National Security State By Marouf Hasian Jr., Sean Lawson and Megan D. McFarlane, all University of Utah

“While recent books have focused on the rhetorics and technologies of homeland security, few have so skillfully shown that the ‘national security state’ is not just the work of politicians and intelligence agencies—it has also relied on the complicity of pundits, hackers, academics, military bureaucrats, and citizens. This valuable book provides an insightful account of how the Global War on Terror has crept into the American homeland. ” —Joshua Reeves, Oregon State University

Living Dangerously

The Uncertainties of Presidential Disability and Succession By James M. Ronan, independent scholar

Mexicano and Latino Politics and the Quest for Self-Determination What Needs to Be Done

By Armando Navarro, University of California, Riverside

“This book answers the question of what needs to be done in the struggle for selfdetermination in Aztlan, the land that Mexico lost to the US as a result of the 1846–48 Mexican-American War.… Two change models are proposed: Aztlan’s Politics of a Nation-Within-a-Nation and Aztlan’s Politics of Separatism. These models can be applied to any global secessionist struggle (i.e., Palestinians and Kurds). Navarro provides a rich historical analysis.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

The Eisenhower Presidency

By Andrew J. Polsky, Hunter College

By Katharine S. Bullard, Fairleigh Dickinson University

Lessons for the Twenty-First Century “In my opinion, Dr. Andrew Polsky’s The Eisenhower Presidency is the best and most important anthology of essays about the Eisenhower Presidency ever put together. The book brightly illuminates major issues of Eisenhower’s presidency that remain pertinent today. I have looked forward to a book like this on the Eisenhower presidency for a long time, and I could not recommend it more highly.” —David Eisenhower, University of Pennsylvania

Civilizing the Child

Discourses of Race, Nation, and Child Welfare in America “This thought-provoking study of child welfare reformers in the early twentieth-century argues that racial difference, national identity, and imperialist assumptions both inspired reformers’ programs to improve the lives of the nation’s children and set limits on their notions of deserving childhood. This solidly researched, provocatively argued study will be of interest to historians of social welfare and public policy, race and empire, and twentieth-century America. ” —Anya Jabour, University of Montana

“Laying a foundation of historical and recent facts, Mary Rucker examines how systemic racism and white retribution affected President Obama’s first term and influenced the lives of people of color. Challenged by conservative radicalism, Obama’s dedication to democracy for all U.S. citizens and his views on American exceptionalism are transparent in the author’s explanation of him maintaining the foundation of principles of his country.” —Cherlyn A.

The Political Battle over Congressional Redistricting

Car Safety Wars

One Hundred Years of Technology, Politics, and Death “Car Safety Wars is a comprehensive history of the movement for safer cars over the course of a century…. This prime reading for anyone interested in automobiles and their development, the consumer safety movement, or the mechanisms of democratic government, or for those who are simply curious about the origins of the many auto safety features like seatbelts and airbags that now protect countless lives.” —Huffington Post

“This book focuses on the process of drawing district lines in the 18 states that gained or lost seats in 2010. The selection of these states provides one side of the redistricting picture, ignoring intrastate population shifts in states with no changes in the number of seats. The 18 case studies are bookended by an initial contextual chapter and a brief summary chapter…. Most readers will find this a good archival summary of redistricting in their state if they are among the chosen 18. Recommended..”—CHOICE

The Religious Origins of American Freedom and Equality A Response to John Rawls

By David Peddle, Memorial University of Newfoundland

“Peddle offers a truly remarkable contribution to contemporary political philosophy. He offers a serious critique of the Rawlsian paradigm and points to a deeper and more historically grounded account of the relation of church and state in America. His account of American liberalism corrects Rawls, moving it beyond the calcified division between the ‘religious right’ and the ‘secular left’.” —Barry Craig, St. Thomas University

9/11 Fiction, Empathy, and Otherness By Tim Gauthier, University of Nevada, Las Vegas

“None of the currently available critical literature on 9/11 fiction can match Tim Gauthier’s combination of theoretical sophistication and analytical rigor. His exciting new study furnishes new readings of the established canon of 9/11 texts, as well as provides ingenious encounters with less familiar texts, such as graphic novels and fiction from France. Gauthier’s study is now the place to begin for students and others interested in getting to grips with this body of work.” —Robert Spencer, The University of Manchester

Collectivities

Politics at the Intersections of Disciplines By Robert F. Carley, Wright State University

Collectivities is a term describing the intellectual and creative potential of groups. Collectivities then mark a position in the connection between disciplinary fields; a position that is simultaneously productive of new knowledge and new politics. Robert Carley looks at the classical ideas and theorists that have influenced interdisciplinary work in the humanistic and social-scientific disciplines as well as contemporary cases of interdisciplinary meeting points, specifically cultural studies, Chicana/o studies and radical sociology (e.g. critical, liberation, public, and Marxist approaches).

Edited by Francis K. Peddle, Dominican University College, and William S. Peirce, Case Western Reserve University

The first volume of a projected six volumes on Henry George focuses on the social context for George’s political economy, as well as the public and private struggles that George faced. Tension between the dream of economic justice and different techniques to realize it proved a continuing challenge for the Georgist movement after its heady early years.

“Tara Pauliny’s book compellingly shows readers how insidious and pervasive neoliberal logic can be, especially when there are state-sponsored values, such as constituting a ‘healthy’ or ‘ideal citizen’s’ body, at stake.

Freedom and Dialogue in a Polarized World By Sharon Schuman, independent scholar

“To see true dialogue as a way of allowing conflicting voices to hear and understand one another is to offer some resolution in our world of polarization and impasse. Schuman takes us back to some great debates of literary art, like Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, in which dialogic freedom seeks out a continuum of layers of knowing, as Portia and Shylock fail to navigate a way of transcending their hostility and cultural deafness.” —David Bevington, emeritus, University of Chicago

Civil War Interventions and Their Benefits Unequal Return

By Isaac M. Castellano, Boise State University

“Castellano answers an important question: what are the benefits of interventions into civil wars for regular citizens in intervening states? He examines factors that motivate states to intervene in civil wars, how interventions shape conflict dynamics, the benefits that are produced, and how those benefits are distributed following an intervention. Three civil wars are used as case studies: the 1979–1992 Salvadoran Civil War, the 1975–1988 Moro insurgency in the Philipines, and the 1983– 1987 Eelam War in Sri Lanka.….

The Libidinal Economy of China

Gender, Nationalism, and Consumer Culture By Perry Johansson, Hong Kong Baptist University

Johansson engages a range of post-colonial and psychoanalytically informed thinkers in a truly cross disciplinary study. Lacanian theories on hysteria, femininity, and narcissism are applied in the international domain of geopolitics to formulate a general theory on China’s relationship to the West. The study concludes that China and the New Chinese Nationalism is firmly under the gaze of a Western Other analogous to a male gaze.

The Making of Pakistani Human Bombs By Khuram Iqbal, National Defense University, Pakistan

A multi-level analysis of Pakistani human bombs reveals that suicide terrorism is caused by multiple factors with perceived effectiveness, vengeance, poverty, and religious fundamentalism playing a varying role at the individual, organizational, and environmental levels. Iqbal decodes personal, demographic, economic and marital characteristics of Pakistani human bombs. His study concludes that previous scholarly attempts to explain suicide bombings are largely based on Middle Eastern data, thus their application in the case of Pakistan can be misleading. 2016 • 232 pages 978-1-4985-1648-8 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1649-5 • $84.99 / £54.95 • eBook

Ibadan Market Women and Politics, 1900–1995 By Mutiat Titilope Oladejo, University of Ibadan

“Based on an impressive set of data from Ibadan, the largest Yoruba city after Lagos, the book traces the intersectionality between women and politics in the longue durée. It reveals how politics interacts with women’s business; how trade is shaped by non-market forces; and how daily activities cumulate into the architecture of national politics itself. From opportunities to profit, resistance to rewards, dialogue to negotiations, the work reveals changing contours of actions, events, and activities.” —Toyin Falola, University of Texas at Austin

Who Must Die in Rwanda’s Genocide?

Imagining Iran

By Kyrsten Sinema, US Congressional Representative, Ninth District, Arizona

The State of Exception Realized

This book provides a juridical, sociopolitical history of the evolution of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Unlike most genocides, wherein a government plans and executes mass murder of a targeted portion of its population, the Rwandan government relied heavily on the civilian population to not only politically support, but actively engage in the acts of genocide committed over the 100 days throughout the spring of 1994. This book shows why and how the Rwandan genocide occurred. 2015 • 182 pages 978-1-4985-1864-2 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1865-9 • $79.99 / £52.95 • eBook

The Tragedy of Subaltern Nationalism “This expansive book seeks to explain why different Iranian regimes that came to power after the 1905-06 constitutional revolution have unsuccessfully sought to define ‘Iranianness.’ Sharifi explains the political dynamics of the rise and fall of each regime in terms of the inability of each type of government, whether secularist or Islamic, to make its narrative of ‘Iranianness’ inclusive enough to make the state into the embodiment of the country’s heterogeneous people.… Highly recommended. ” —CHOICE

The Soviet Union and the Horn of Africa during the Cold War By Radoslav A. Yordanov, Columbia University

“Radoslav Yordanov’s work is a masterful assessment of thirty years of Soviet policy. He has culled the archives of all the former Socialist states, the US, and Great Britain for evidence, and paints a carefully detailed picture of the factors that went into Soviet policy and the shifts in that policy that local political developments required.” —Roger E. Kanet, University of Miami

“Led by two of Russia’s finest historians, a team of distinguished American and Russian scholars address a wide range of ways that American intellectuals have thought about Russia and Russian academics have analyzed the US since the middle of the nineteenth century. The authors significantly contribute to our understanding of how images of ‘the Other’ have figured in mutual understanding—and misunderstanding.” —David Foglesong, Rutgers University 2015 • 306 pages 978-1-4985-1798-0 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1799-7 • $94.99 / £65.00 • eBook

The Concept of Neutrality in Stalin’s Foreign Policy, 1945–1953 By Peter Ruggenthaler, University of Graz

“Piercing the web of deception, cynicism, and intransigence characteristic of Soviet foreign policy, Ruggenthaler’s authoritative explanation of Stalin’s concept of neutrality from new sources in Russian archives is not only a breakthrough in our understanding of the early Cold War. His book is timely reading for anyone seeking to understand the continuities in the Kremlin’s conduct of foreign affairs that persist. ” —Vojtech Mastny, author of The Cold War and Soviet Insecurity: The Stalin Years Series: The Harvard Cold War Studies Book Series 2015 • 442 pages 978-1-4985-1743-0 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1744-7 • $119.99 / £80.00 • eBook

Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana Race and Politics in Two Plural Societies

By Ann Marie Bissessar and John Gaffar La Guerre, both University of West Indies, Trinidad

“A close study of the political-historical interface among social, economic, and international ‘predisposing factors’ affecting race and politics in the plural societies of Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana. It is a case study of political/economic development within the complex interplay between forces often anchored in ethnicity. The book methodically traces these factors as they relate to the competition between the culturally East Indian and African factions within the two societies through colonial, independence, and postindependence eras.…Recommended.” —CHOICE

“These proceedings constitute a truly extraordinary collection of essays on the legacy of Antonio de Montesinos’s sermon of 1511, arguably the most significant sermon in the history of the Americas. There is something for everyone here, from theologians to lawyers, priests and pastors, human rights activists, and all those devoted to the timeless theme of justice in its many manifestations.” —Lawrence Clayton, University of Alabama 2015 • 264 pages 978-1-4985-0413-3 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-0414-0 • $89.99 / £60.00 • eBook

Privatization and the New Medical Pluralism Shifting Healthcare Landscapes in Maya Guatemala Edited by Anita Chary, independent scholar, and Peter Rohloff, Harvard University

“This volume offers a nuanced, yet amazingly lucid and hard-hitting critique of the NGOization of health care, even in contexts like Guatemala where the postcolonial state offered little before implantation of neoliberal policies. This ‘Republic of NGOs’ offers a pluralism that nonetheless displaces traditional, indigenous health systems. A must read for scholars and students of medical anthropology, NGOs, and contemporary Central America.” —Mark Schuller, Northern Illinois University 2016 • 226 pages 978-1-4985-0537-6 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-0538-3 • $84.99 / £54.95 • eBook
