Politics in the new hard times : the great recession in comparative perspective by Miles Kahler( )

13 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in English and held by 1,635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Great Recession and its aftershocks, including the Eurozone banking and debt crisis, add up to the worst global economic crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Although economic explanations for the Great Recession have proliferated, the political causes and consequences of the crisis have received less systematic attention. Politics in the New Hard Times is the first book to focus on the Great Recession as a political crisis, one with both political sources and political consequences. The authors examine variation in crises over time and across countries, rather than treating these events as undifferentiated shocks. Chapters also explore how crisis has forced the redefinition and reinforcement of interests at the level of individual attitudes and in national political coalitions. Throughout, the authors stress that the Great Recession is only the latest in a long history of international economic crises with significant political effects--and that it is unlikely to be the last."--Publisher's website
International institutions and the political economy of integration by Miles Kahler( Book )

15 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dynamic changes in international institutions have been a striking feature of international politics in the post-cold war world. The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) has been transformed into the World Trade Organization, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank have assumed new roles in the transitional economies of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, and regional arrangements have proliferated. With deepening economic integration, these institutions play an increasingly important role."--BOOK JACKET. "In this book, part of the Integrating National Economies series, Miles Kahler examines both global and regional institutions and their importance in the world economy. Kahler explains the variation in these institutions and assesses the role they play in sustaining economic cooperation among nations. With greater tensions arising between an economy that is more integrated and a political order that remains highly fragmented, international institutions face many hurdles in supporting policy coordination and harmonization."--BOOK JACKET. "The core global institutions - the IMF, World Bank, and GATT - have redesigned their roles in response to the new realities of economic integration. Kahler explains the evolution of these institutions, compares their strengths and weaknesses, and analyzes their efforts to deal with deeper integration. He then considers the array of regional institutions - the European Union, North American Free Trade Agreement, and Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation - and the tensions they must confront between national desires to maintain political autonomy and, at the same time, benefit from intensified economic exchange."--BOOK JACKET. "International institutions confront common dilemmas of widening scope and larger memberships. Kahler concludes that no single institutional model guarantees successful international collaboration. He argues that institutional variety is inevitable and even desirable, and highlights the advantages of flexible institutions. Rapid international economic change, domestic political demands, and the changing boundaries of knowledge reward institutions that are decentralized and respond promptly to the demands of their members. International collaboration may be sustained by institutions that do not display clear, substantive rules or centralized enforcement powers."--Jacket

9 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proliferation of regional institutions and initiatives in Asia over the past decade is unmatched in any other region of the world.

Regionalism and rivalry : Japan and the United States in Pacific Asia by Jeffrey A Frankel( )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Japan's newfound economic power leads to increased political power, there is concern that Japan may be turning East Asia into a regional economic bloc to rival the U.S. and Europe. In Regionalism and Rivalry, leading economists and political scientists address this concern by looking at three central questions: Is Japan forming a trading bloc in Pacific Asia? Does Japan use foreign direct investment in Southeast Asia to achieve national goals? Does Japan possess the leadership qualities necessary for a nation assuming greater political responsibility in international affairs?. The authors c

Territoriality and conflict in an era of globalization( Book )

17 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Predictions that globalization would undermine territorial attachments and weaken the sources of territorial conflict have not been realized in recent decades. Bringing the perspectives of law, political science, anthropology, and geography to bear on the complex causal relations among territoriality, conflict, and globalization, leading contributors examine how territorial attachments are constructed, why they have remained so powerful in the face of an increasingly globalized world, and what effect continuing strong attachments may have on conflict
Networked politics : agency, power, and governance by Miles Kahler( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of network has emerged as an intellectual centerpiece for our era. Network analysis also occupies a growing place in many of the social sciences. In international relations, however, network has too often remained a metaphor rather than a powerful theoretical perspective. In Networked Politics, a team of political scientists investigates networks in important sectors of international relations, including human rights, security agreements, terrorist and criminal groups, international inequality, and governance of the Internet. They treat networks as either structures that shape behavior or important collective actors. In their hands, familiar concepts, such as structure, power, and governance, are awarded new meaning.

Governance in a global economy : political authority in transition by Miles Kahler( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Critics of globalization claim that economic integration drains political authority from states: devolving authority to newly empowered regions, delegating it to supranational organizations, and transferring it to multinational firms and nongovernmental organizations. Globalization is also attacked for forcing convergence of state institutions and policies and threatening the ability of societies to chart their own democratically determined courses. In Governance in a Global Economy, Miles Kahler and David Lake assemble the contributions of seventeen leading scholars who have systematically investigated how global economic integration produces changes of governance. These authors conclude that globalization has created a new and intricate fabric of governance, but one that fails to match the stark portrait of beleaguered states. Exploring changes in governance across several policy areas (such as tourism, trade, finance, and fiscal and monetary policy), the authors demonstrate that globalization changes the policy preferences of some actors, increases the bargaining power of others, and opens new institutional options for yet others. By reintroducing agency and choice into our understanding of globalization, this book provides important new insights into the complex and contingent effects of globalization on political authority and governance.
