  1. Migration and Religion

    Migration and Religion

    Edited by James A. Beckford
    The complex and changing relations between religion and migration are central to many urgent questions about diversity, inequality and pluralism. This wide-ranging collection of articles explores these questions in different periods of history, regions of the world and traditions of faith. There is particular emphasis on how religions inspire, manage and benefit from migration as well as how the experience of migration affects religious beliefs, identities and practices. These volumes examine the interface between religion and migration at levels of analysis ranging from the local to the global, and from the individual to the faith community. Learn More

  3. Household Finance

    Household Finance

    Edited by Michael Haliassos
    Since its emergence in the 1980s, the subject of household finance has rapidly grown into a critical area of economic focus. Research, policy and practitioner interest has increased as household portfolios have become more complicated in response to financial innovation and new challenges in retirement financing. Whilst the earliest research was initially focussed on the limited tendency to hold stocks and diversify risk, recent work has developed into a broader exploration of the challenges posed by limited financial literacy, cognition, behavioural biases and cultural predispositions, and the ways to overcome them through financial education, advice, institutional reform and regulation.

    Multi-level Governance: Essential Readings

    Edited by Ian Bache, Matthew Flinders

This collection brings together seminal papers covering three waves of MLG scholarship; the first wave focuses largely on debates around Europe and the regions; the second on the nature and impact of MLG in wider settings (local, national and global) and the implications for accountability; and the third discusses MLG of different types and in new terrains (geographical or policy).

    Edited by Jan Fagerberg, David C. Mowery

  13. The Economics of Philanthropy and Fundraising

    The Economics of Philanthropy and Fundraising

    Edited by James Andreoni
    What are people buying when they give money away? Is pure altruism possible? Who benefits from grants to charities and subsidies to givers? Is religious giving different? Which fundraising approaches ‘work’, and is more charity always better? Questions like these make philanthropy and fundraising among the most dynamic research areas in economics today. Including an original introduction, this two-volume collection guides both students and scholars from the time when giving was seen as ‘irrational’, to the present when economics has fully embraced the complex and fascinating challenges of understanding why self-interested people can be so unselfish.

  15. State Capitalism

    State Capitalism

    Edited by Barbara Krug
    This book takes as its starting point the question of whether contemporary state capitalism simply uses different tools than earlier or other variants of capitalism, or whether it is an altogether new kind of economic regime. It brings together key research and commentary which will help to define the concept of contemporary state capitalism as an economic model and present a nuanced view of state capitalism in action. The editor has selected the articles on the basis of their academic merit, but has also included articles representative of the specific academic climate of a certain time such as Marxist-based concepts. Although these may look ‘out-of date’ or have been dismissed as unsatisfactory, they are nevertheless important for an understanding of the development of the debate. A clear original introduction by the editor provides an illuminating guide to this topic and indicates new areas for further study and analysis. Learn More

    Islam and the Law of Armed Conflict

    Edited by Niaz A. Shah
    This important collection reveals a multiplicity of perspectives on the Islamic law of war and peace.
