Worlds in collision : terror and the future of global order( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and Arabic and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, offering a comprehensive and provocative collection of viewpoints from leading intellectuals from a number of countries, will help readers understand the ways in which worlds collided on September 11, 2001. Not only does it comprehensively address the first phase of the war against international terrorism, the book also looks at the wider regional and global ramifications. Worlds in Collision is about more than the war on terrorism, it is ultimately about different ways of conceiving international politics, and hence the possibilities for reshaping global order."--Jacket
Law, force, and diplomacy at sea by Ken Booth( Book )

12 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Law, Force and Diplomacy at Sea, first published in 1985, is one of the few comprehensive treatments on the subject from a strategic perspective. It offers a detailed strategic analysis of the background and outcome of the Third UN Conference on the Law of the Sea, and its naval implications. The interplay between the interest of the naval powers in freedom of navigation and the interest of coastal states in control provides the setting for the strategic problems. The sea is taking on more properties of the land: it is becoming 'territorialised', and this is presenting fresh

International theory : positivism and beyond by Steve Smith( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a major review of the state of international theory. It is focused around the issue of whether the positivist phase of international theory is now over, or whether the subject remains mainly positivistic. Leading scholars analyse the traditional theoretical approaches in the discipline, then examine the issues and groups which are marginalised by mainstream theory, before turning to four important new developments in international theory (historical sociology, post-structuralism, feminism, and critical theory). The book concludes with five chapters which look at the future of the subject and the practice of international relations. This survey brings together key figures who have made leading contributions to the development of mainstream and alternative theory, and will be a valuable text for both students and scholars of international relations.--Publisher description

Theory of world security by Ken Booth( Book )

15 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is real? What can we know? How might we act? This book sets out to answer these fundamental philosophical questions in a radical and original theory of security for our times. Arguing that the concept of security in world politics has long been imprisoned by conservative thinking, Ken Booth explores security as a precious instrumental value which gives individuals and groups the opportunity to pursue the invention of humanity rather than live determined and diminished lives. Booth suggests that human society globally is facing a set of converging historical crises. He looks to critical social theory and radical international theory to develop a comprehensive framework for understanding the historical challenges facing global business-as-usual and for planning to reconstruct a more cosmopolitan future. Theory of World Security is a challenge both to well-established ways of thinking about security and alternative approaches within critical security studies

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text is an indispensable statement of the ideas of this critical security project, written by some of its leading exponents
Navies and foreign policy by Ken Booth( Book )

20 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1977, this study offers a comprehensive, systematic and integrated survey of the important relationship between navies and the making and execution of foreign policy. Ken Booth explains the functions navies can perform in both war and peace, the influence they have on particular situations, and how the relevant organisations can affect the character of naval actions. Ultimately, navies are regarded as indispensable instruments of the state by a number of countries, whilst all countries with a coast find some need to threaten a degree of force at sea. This book provides st
The security dilemma : fear, cooperation and trust in world politics by Ken Booth( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This major new contribution to the study of international politics provides comprehensive analysis of the concept of "security dilemma," the phrase used to describe mistrust and fear which is often thought to be the inevitable consequence of living in a world of sovereign states. By exploring theory and practice of security dilemma through the prisms of fear, cooperation and trust, it considers whether the security dilemma can be mitgated or even transcended analyzing a wide range of historical and contemporary cases--Publisher's description

How might we live? : global ethics in a new century by Ken Booth( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume looks outward to the twenty-first century and to the dynamics of this first truly global age. It asks the fundamental question: how might human societies live? In contrast to the orthodoxies of academic Philosophy and International Relations in much of the twentieth century, which marginalised or rejected the study of ethics, the contributors here believe that there is nothing more political than ethics, and therefore deserving of scholarly analysis. By exploring some of the oldest questions about duties and obligations within and beyond humanly constructed boundaries, the essays help us ponder the most profound question in world politics today: who will the twenty-first century be for?

The interregnum : controversies in world politics 1989-1999 by Michael Cox( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Interregnum: Controversies in World Politics 1989-1999 is a series of critical reflections on the major controversies in and about world politics in the 1990s. We are living in an era which seemingly defies description: in social and political theory, our age is frequently referred to as 'post-modern'; in international relations, we remain in the 'post-Cold War' age. The age is only characterised by what it is not. This collection of critical reflections, written by leading scholars in the field, sheds light on the meanings of world politics in what we are calling The Interregnum. The central question of the Special Issue might be put as follows: what do the major controversies in world politics in the 1990s tell us about the characteristics of the age, who we are, and where world politics might be going?

Terror in our time by Ken Booth( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The War on Terror has defined the first decade of this century. It has been marked by the deaths of thousands of people, political turmoil, massive destruction, and intense fear. Regardless of the name it goes under, the long war on terror will continue to affect lives across the world. Its catalyst, 9/11, did not have to happen, nor did the character of the responses. This book offers a set of novel interpretations of how we got here, where we are, and where we should be heading. It is organised around twelve penetrating and readable essays, full of novel interpretations and succinct summaries of complex ideas and events. In their examination of those aspects of global order touched by terror, the authors argue that the dangers of international terrorism are not overblown. Future 9/11s are possible: so is a more just and law-governed world. Terrorism cannot be disinvented, but with more intelligent policies than have been on show these past ten years, it can be overcome and made politically anachronistic."
