  1. International Environmental Liability and Barriers to Trade

    International Environmental Liability and Barriers to Trade

    Kareen L. Holtby, William A. Kerr, Jill E. Hobbs
    Trade and the environment has become a major issue in international relations, yet the surrounding debate is polarised and hostile. On the one hand international trade is perceived as a major threat to environmental sustainability, whilst on the other trade and the economic development arising from it is seen as the prerequisite to stronger environmental protection. Nowhere is the debate more acrimonious than over trade in genetically modified organisms. The Biosafety Protocol has been negotiated to govern trade in genetically modified products and includes provisions for an international liability regime to facilitate trade – a subject that has been little studied. This valuable book explores the role, design and potential effectiveness of an international liability regime and will be an essential read to all those interested in international trade policy, environmental economics, international politics and international law.

  2. Economic Integration, Democratization and National Security in East Asia

    Economic Integration, Democratization and National Security in East Asia

    Edited by Peter C.Y. Chow
    The US policy of supporting a democratic Taiwan while simultaneously engaging China is a delicate and complex balance, with outcomes critical to economic, security and strategic interests in Asia. At the same time, rising Taiwanese identity amid the emerging power of China continues to change the paradigm. The contributors to this volume explore the political and economic dimensions of this complicated and pressing issue. Learn More

  3. Beyond the Iraq War

    Beyond the Iraq War

    Edited by Michael Heazle, Iyanatul Islam
    This book critically analyses the topic of US-led external interventions in the affairs of developing countries by using one of the most contested experiments of modern times, namely, the invasion of Iraq and its aftermath. The March 2003 invasion of Iraq has so far failed to deliver the benefits and outcomes its supporters anticipated, prompting international discussion as to whether the promises of externally-led nation-building (as an attempt to mould rogue states in a democratic, market-friendly fashion) are outweighed by the kinds of pitfalls and perils of intervention that have come to characterise the Iraq experience. This book identifies and addresses the major issues emerging from the current debate including the evolution of external interventionism as an idea, an explanation of what went wrong in post-Saddam Iraq and why the Iraq experiment is flawed by the Bush administration’s refusal to address long standing political and historical grievances among Muslims as part of the ‘War on Terror’. The contributors assess the troubled relationship between Islam and the West, the prospects for democracy in the Middle East, foreign policy debates in the US, and how economics and politics are juxtaposed in a highly contentious manner in any project of externally-driven nation-building.

  5. The Politics of Globalisation and Polarisation

    The Politics of Globalisation and Polarisation

    Maurice Mullard
    This book deals with the nature of contemporary globalisation. Maurice Mullard aims to show that globalisation is not an inescapable, unstoppable process somehow beyond human control, rather that it represents, and is being shaped by, a series of deliberate policy choices and policy decisions. The emphasis of this fascinating work is on how these policy choices are creating new forms of economic inequalities and also political elites that distort the democratic process. Learn More

    Terrorism and the International Business Environment

  9. Challenges to Democracy

    Challenges to Democracy

    Sten Berglund, Frank H. Aarebrot, Henri Vogt, Georgi Karasimeonov
    Drawing heavily on available survey data, the book provides an in-depth account of how the new democracies of Central and Eastern Europe have coped with four major challenges: political fragmentation, nationalism, lack of respect for human rights, and poorly developed civil service systems. The book demonstrates that although the first few years of the 1990s were marked by increasing disenchantment with the new regimes, the change of governments as a direct result of the electoral process and the prospects for European integration have served to reverse this negative trend. Indeed, the authors find that the new political systems have managed to cope with the challenges so effectively that striking similarities with Western democracies are now apparent. Learn More

  12. Terror, Force and States

    Terror, Force and States

    Rosemary H.T O’Kane
    Terror, Force and States offers a new theoretical explanation of the nature and causes of terror states. The theory is developed through a critical examination of the works of Bauman, Weber, Arendt, Friedrich and Brzezinski, as well as through detailed case studies of terror regimes including Nazi Germany, Stalin’s Russia and Pol Pot’s Cambodia. The view of force as a form of power is rejected by Rosemary O’Kane who carefully distinguishes between repressive and terror governments and, crucially, between totalitarian dictatorships and totalitarian regimes.

  17. The New Democracies in Eastern Europe

    The New Democracies in Eastern Europe

    Edited by Sten Berglund, Jan Å. Dellenbrant
    The New Democracies in Eastern Europe presents a genuinely comparative perspective on the old and new party systems. Featuring detailed assessment and analysis of the situation in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria, the volume draws upon research and opinion from a distinguished group of European scholars. Recognising that many of the social and political problems of the inter-war period continue to make themselves felt, the authors contend that the breakdown of the old authoritarian system was a by-product of a built-in and progressively worsening legitimacy crisis. Despite the great progress made by some East European countries, recent events confirm the view that authoritarianism has not lost its appeal. Learn More

  18. The Anatomy of the New Poland

    The Anatomy of the New Poland

    Frances Millard
    The Anatomy of the New Poland examines the nature and scope of political change in the first years of post-communist politics in Poland. Poland is significant not only because events there triggered the downfall of Communism throughout the region, but also because of the bold economic experiments of the new Polish leadership.  Covering the period from the Round table negotiations of 1989 to the second free parliamentary elections in September 1993, the book blends an examination of the general features of communist systems and the challenges for democratic development in Eastern Europe with a specific analysis of the situation in Poland.
