Obstacles to change in Latin America by Claudio Véliz( Book )

7 editions published between 1965 and 1969 in English and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of essays by leading Latin Americans who, apart from being academically distinguished, are placed near the sources of political power in their respective countries and have on occasion advised either their governments or international organizations on specialized problems. Although the authors work in different disciplines and start from different sets of premises, these essays reflect a remarkable coincidence of views which may be described as a civilized impatience with the attempt to use foreign models to interpret Latin American situations. Latin America has a pre-industrial urban civilization that has remained largely untouched by the changes traditionally associated with industrialization

Moral opposition to authoritarian rule in Chile, 1973-90 by Pamela Lowden( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study of the Vicaría de Solidaridad provides detailed coverage of its efforts on behalf of human rights during the early years (1973-82) of military rule. While the organization did much to strengthen the Church's credibility with popular sector Chileans, it may not offer a sufficient basis for generalizing about either the Church's moral authority generally or its role, particularly post-1983, in the transition to civilian rule"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57

Russia and the challengers : Russian alignment with China, Iran, and Iraq in the unipolar era by Helen Belopolsky( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Less than two decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union, China, Iran and Iraq number among a cadre of Russia's closest friends. The resolute turn to the West which had characterized Russia's early foreign policy strategy, by the mid-1990s, had been tempered by the move to a more reserved policy. On the contrary, the Bush Administration's tenure was marked by diplomatic tensions with China, unambiguous intentions to end Iran's nuclear programme and the invasion of Iraq. The question becomes why Russia has chosen to jeopardize its embryonic partnership with the West in favour of alignment with 'challenger' states like China, Iran and Iraq. Given the emergence of American hegemony, it would seem that Russian alignment with these states suggests a strong connection with the United States. The author unpacks preconceptions and examines the true extent to which the American factor interacts with Russian economic, domestic security, and regional objectives in driving Russian foreign policy."--Book cover
Explaining change in Russian foreign policy : the role of ideas in post-Soviet Russia's conduct towards the West by Christian Thorun( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book takes stock and asks what patterns have emerged from 1992 to 2007. It argues that only by focusing both on external constraints and changes in the Russian leadership's foreign policy thinking can we explain major facets of Russia's conduct." "In analysing Russian foreign policy the book develops an original analytical framework for foreign policy analysis, illustrates the evolution of the Russian leadership's foreign policy discourse, and unravels major threads in Russia's conduct in three case studies. The case studies encompass Moscow's approaches towards NATO and its enlargement, its responses to the Balkan crises, and its reaction to the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks."--Jacket
Britain, the United States and the Mediterranean War, 1942-44 by Matthew Jones( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The record of Anglo-American relations in the Mediterranean during the Second World War was often characterised by deep tensions within the high command, in contrast to the public facade of harmonious and generous cooperation. By focusing on the evolution of the Mediterranean theatre's integrated command structure, this new study illuminates some of the major issues and disputes arising between the Allies from the invasion of French North Africa in 1942 to British
The problem of revolution in Germany, 1789-1989( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until very recently Germany has frequently been characterized as the 'country without revolution', and the catastrophies of its recent history have been attributed to the lack of successful modernizing impulses. This series of essays by leading German scholars explores the effects of revolutions upon German history from 1789 to 1989 - the date of Germany's 'peaceful revolution' - and discusses the fundamental questions of reform and revolution, the effects of war, counter-revolution and defeat on the social process of modernization. The book not only examines the revolutions of 1789, 1848, 1918 and 1989, but equally focuses on the great reform periods, the 'revolutions from above'. It analyzes the significance of World War I for revolutionizing German society, the nature of the 'national-socialist revolution', and the effects of the 1945 defeat on new beginnings in a divided Germany. It offers, on the basis of up-to-date research, stimulating debates about fundamental problems of German history
Local governance in Central and Eastern Europe : comparing performance in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Russia by Tomila Lankina( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After decades of central planning, decentralization has been made a centrepiece of political reforms in post-communist states. Despite all the normative hype and rhetoric, we still know very little about the impact of decentralization on local populations. This study, which examines local social services and economic promotion in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Russia, fills this important gap. It shifts the focus of much of the literature on post-communism from national-level actors to those at the level of small-to-medium-sized cities. At this level too, institutional choices matter, politics can be messy, and much depends on the ability of local actors themselves, rather than their national governments, to seize opportunities for change and development. The study dispels the myth that socio-economic 'givens' or inter-governmental systems are key determinants of local outcomes: instead, it shows how party political factors and local civic activism can and do make a difference, and should be given greater prominence in the literature on local performance."--Jacket

Legitimacy in international society : Japan's reaction to global wildlife preservation by Isao Miyaoka( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legitimacy in International Society addresses collective legitimization of emergent norms at international meetings and its effect on state behaviour. Drawing mainly on constructivist approaches in International Relations and social psychology, Isao Miyaoka discusses the international and domestic sources of legitimacy and the basic conditions under which collective legitimization matters for norm adoption. He also outlines three causal mechanisms of social influence and the conditions under which each mechanism is likely to operate. Three case studies examine Japan's responses to wildlife preservation norms against high seas driftnet fishing, scientific whaling and international trade in African elephant ivory. Isao Miyaoka finds that the consent given to an emerging norm by more than one third of the states in international society is likely to have an impact on state behaviour, even without material coercion, self interest or moral obligation, due to social pressure or political obligation

Dynamic and immobilist politics in Japan by J. A. A Stockwin( Book )

6 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past thirty years Japan has shown that it is a highly dynamic society, and its economic policy-making has often astonished the world. Japanese politics, however, though sometimes showing dynamism, are very stable and frequently strangely immobilist. In this book, six specialists on Japanese politics seek to find out why

Turkey's engagement with modernity : conflict and change in the twentieth century by Celia Kerslake( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turkey's Enagement with Modernity explores how the country has been shaped in the image of the Kemalist project of nationalist modernity and how it has transformed, if erratically, into a democratic society where tensions between religion, state and society continue unabated. Turkey is at the core of many current intellectual and political debates. Questions about the future of secularism, the relationship between Islam and democracy and the future of the Middle East and Europe all touch upon Turkey. These debates can benefit greatly from substantive examinations of the political institutions of the Turkish Republic and the historical evolution of its society and culture in the twentieth century. Turkey's Engagement with Modernity brings together twenty-four leading scholars of Turkish Studies, who revisit Turkey's 'modern century.' The essays range from high politics and international relations to examinations of the intricate webs of social and religious networks, micro-histories, literature and music. Together they look at the successes and crises which the nationalist project created, and the instances of resistance and opposition it triggered. The book explores how the country was shaped in the image of the Kemalist project of nationalist modernity and how it was transformed, if erratically, into a democratic society where tensions between religion, state and society continue unabated
