  1. CAPITALISM AND THE THIRD WORLD

    CAPITALISM AND THE THIRD WORLD

    Wil Hout
    Capitalism and the Third World is the first comprehensive assessment of dependency and world systems scholarship, and questions whether such theories offer a scientific basis for the study of international relations. Wil Hout skilfully compares the theories of dependency and world systems with their theoretical predecessors and competitors. In the first part of the book comparisons are made with traditional economic and neo-Marxist theories of imperialism, the liberal theory of international free trade, Prebisch’s structuralism and modernisation theories. The second part analyses the writings of Andre Gunder Frank, Samir Amin, Johan Galtung and Immanuel Wallerstein, and tests three causal models derived from the writings of these scholars using quantitative macro-political and macro-economic data.

  6. New East Asian Regionalism

    New East Asian Regionalism

    Edited by Charles Harvie, Fukunari Kimura, Hyun-Hoon Lee

The book explores the key issues and possible outcomes arising from this departure from the region’s traditional multilateral approach to trade liberalization. Implications of this new approach for the region as a whole, and key participating individual economies and blocs of economies, are emphasized. Learn More

  7. THE COMING OF KEYNESIANISM TO AMERICA

    THE COMING OF KEYNESIANISM TO AMERICA

    Edited by David C. Colander, Harry Landreth
    This book is based around a set of interviews with, what might be called, the Keynesian revolutionaries – the individuals most responsible for introducing Keynesian economics to the United States. It includes formal interviews with Richard Musgrave, Abba Lerner, Paul Samuelson, Tibor Scitovsky, Evsey Domar, Robert Bryce, Lorie Tarshis, John Kenneth Galbraith, Paul Sweezy, Walter Salant and Leon Keyserling. These interviews give the reader a sense of what the Keynesian revolution was and how it spread, as well as the hostility these earlier revolutionaries faced, and the similarities and differences in their views. The interviews are introduced by an essay which presents the Keynesian revolution in three parts as theoretical, political and pedagogical, concerned with the development of tools and models to teach macroeconomics. This essay sets the stage for the interviews and relates them to modern macroeconomic debates. The Keynesianization of America is interesting not just to historians of economic thought but also to other economists who want to know about the development of their discipline and to interested lay people and historians who follow the spread of ideas.

  8. THE ECONOMICS OF ALTRUISM

    THE ECONOMICS OF ALTRUISM

    Edited by Stefano Zamagni
    This title appears exactly 20 years after the publication of Altruism, Morality and Economic Theory, an important volume edited by E.S. Phelps which contains the proceeding of a conference where social scientists and philosophers met to speculate on the roles that altruism and morality play in shaping human behaviour and economic institutions within our societies. Until recently this discipline was considered of minor importance – now there is clear evidence of its growing interest. Learn More

    Darwinism and Economics

    Edited by Geoffrey M. Hodgson
    This volume offers outstanding works of recent scholarship on Darwinism covering three major fields of enquiry:   • How Darwinism affects our conception of human nature and challenges long-standing assumptions such as self-interested behaviour. • Analysis of the nature of socio-cultural evolution, its differences from biological evolution and whether it is Lamarckian. • The possibility of generalizing core Darwinian principles to cover evolving entities in the economic and social world, as well as in biology.

  10. Refugees, Regionalism and Responsibility

    Refugees, Regionalism and Responsibility

    Penelope Mathew, Tristan Harley
    Regional cooperation is sometimes seen as the answer to refugee movements. This book examines whether regional arrangements have resulted in protection and durable solutions for refugees and how responsibility for refugees has been shared at the regional level. Posing critical questions about responsibility-sharing and regionalism, the book is a timely contribution on an issue garnering increasing attention as a result of maritime arrivals in the Mediterranean and Southeast Asia.

  11. Individualism and Inequality

    Individualism and Inequality

    Ralph Fevre
    A belief in individual self-determination powered the development of universal human rights and inspired social movements from anti-slavery to socialism and feminism. At the same time, every attempt to embed individualism in systems of education and employment has eventually led to increased social inequality. Across the globe individualism has been transformed from a revolutionary force into an explanation for increasingly unequal societies where dissent is largely silent. This book explores the possibility of rediscovering the original, transformative potential of individualism. Learn More

  12. Advanced Introduction to Nationalism

    Advanced Introduction to Nationalism

    Liah Greenfeld
    This original Introduction presents nationalism as the most important social force shaping the ways modern people live their lives. It explains the formative influence of nationalism in the public spheres of politics and the economy, as well as the most private ones of emotional wellbeing and mental illness. Along the way, it illuminates widely used but rarely clarified concepts, such as social institution, revolution, ideology, and totalitarianism, and introduces new ones, like dignity capital, and nationalism as the double-helix of modern politics. Basing its conclusions on over 25 years of original comparative historical research, this book bears the characteristic Liah Greenfeld imprint: fact-based discussion, logical rigor, unexpected connections, and an exceptionally wide range of issues woven together to explain the way we live now.

  13. The Future of Federalism

    The Future of Federalism

    Edited by Richard Eccleston, Richard Krever
    The crisis and its aftermath had a dramatic short-term effect on federal relations and, as the twelve case studies in this volume show, set in place a new set of socio-political factors that are shaping the longer-run process of institutional evolution and adaptation in federal systems. This illuminating book illustrates how an understanding of these complex dynamics is crucial to the development of policies needed for effective and sustainable federal governance in the twenty-first century.​ Learn More

  14. A Research Agenda for Neoliberalism

    A Research Agenda for Neoliberalism

    Kean Birch
    With an ever-expanding variety of perspectives on the concept of neoliberalism, it is increasingly difficult to identify any commonalities. This book explores how different people understand neoliberalism, and the contradictions in thinking of neoliberalism as a market-based ethic, project, or order. Detailing the intellectual history of ‘neoliberal’ thought, the variety of critical approaches and the many analytical ambiguities, Kean Birch presents a new way to conceptualize contemporary political economy and offers potential avenues for future research through a judicious exploration of ‘neoliberal’ practices, processes, and institutions.

  15. Constitutional Law and Regionalism

    Constitutional Law and Regionalism

    Vito Breda
    This topical book analyses the practice of negotiating constitutional demands by regional and dispersed national minorities in eight multinational systems. It considers the practices of cooperation and litigation between minority groups and central institutions in Australia, Britain, Canada, New Zealand, Italy, Spain, and the U.S. and includes an evaluation of the implications of the recent Catalan, Puerto Rican and Scottish referenda. Ultimately, the author shows that a flexible constitution combined with a versatile constitutional jurisprudence tends to foster institutional cooperation and the recognition of the pluralistic nature of modern states Learn More

    Market, State and Feminism

    Graham Dawson, Sue Hatt, Linda Watson-Brown, Arthur Baxter, Nancy Bertaux
    Market, State and Feminism offers an inter-disciplinary critique of the ‘free market backlash’ – the belief that free market economics can improve the position, status and well-being of women. The authors argue that, far from being restrictive and intrusive, state action can enhance the individual’s ability to make responsible choices. Learn More

  18. Regions and Regionalism in Europe

    Regions and Regionalism in Europe

    Edited by Michael Keating
    The last half century has seen the rise across Europe of a new intermediate level of government and politics, usually referred to as a region. However the term ‘region’ means many different things and can be approached from many different angles – geographical, historical, cultural, social, economic and political. Although it is in Europe that regionalism as a multiform phenomenon has developed furthest, the European experience resonates in other parts of the world, where some of these elements also exist. In this volume, Michael Keating has selected some of the most significant previously published articles which provide a comprehensive overview of past and current thinking on this subject. Learn More
