Rights beyond borders : the global community and the struggle over human rights in China by Rosemary Foot( )

25 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 2,537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the five decades since the establishment of the United Nations Charter and Universal Declaration of Human Rights, issues of human rights have become a dominant feature of our global community. An acceptance has grown of the treatment of individuals and groups within domestic societies as a legitimate focus of global attention. Played out dramatically in the US media, China has received a huge amount of this global attention, with many democracies sustaining a human rights element in their policies towards China. This book examines the affect that this normative evolution has had on the behavior of individuals, states, institutions, and advocacy networks, and assesses its impact on the relations between key international players and China. Focusing on the period since the Tiananmen bloodshed in June 1989, Rosemary Foot examines China's international and internal responses to the global attention paid to their human rights record. Foot expertly uncovers the conditions under which international human rights norms influence behavior, and determines how norms operate in the global system
The practice of power : US relations with China since 1949 by Rosemary Foot( )

36 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 1,885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In its careful reconstruction of evolving US positions on key issues in the relationship with China, this book is able to explain the change in American-Chinese relations after 1949 from hostility to rapprochement, and to the full normalization of ties in 1979. The author goes on to examine the relationship after normalization, a period when the United States has come to view China as less of a challenge, but still resistant to certain of the norms of the current international order." "The book begins by examining US efforts to build, and then maintain an international and domestic consensus behind its China policy, and its notes the steady erosion of support in both policy arenas. It then looks at changing US perceptions of China's capabilities, and shows how US officials came to have a deeper appreciation of the overall restraints on Beijing's power, especially as a result of the Sino-Soviet rift and the failure of policies associated with the Great Leap Forward. Finally, it examines the effects on the relationship of China's fuller exposure after 1979 to the ideas and values that predominate in the global system."--Jacket
U.S. hegemony and international organizations : the United States and multilateral institutions by Rosemary Foot( )

27 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 1,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between a powerful US and some of the central multilateral organizations in global society is an essential feature of contemporary international relations. This text brings together a range of scholars to examine this crucial phenomenon. Its aims are two-fold: to describe and explain US behaviour in and towards a wide range of significant global and regional institutions; and secondly, to examine the impact of US behaviour on the capacity of each organization to meet its own objectives. The study explores US behaviour and its consequences for organizations based at the regional as well as the global levels, for those located in different regions of the world, and for such issue areas as security, economics, and the environment. Although focusing on the period since the 1990s, each chapter places its findings in a broader historical context

Order and justice in international relations by Rosemary Foot( Book )

24 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book sets current concerns within a broad historical and theoretical context, explores the depth and scope of presumed solidarism amidst the difficulties of acting on the basis of a more strongly articulated liberal position, and underscores the complexity and abiding tensions inherent in the relationship between order and justice. Chapters examine a wide range of state and transnational perspectives on order and justice, including those from China, Europe, India, Russia, the United States, and the Islamic world. Other chapters investigate how the order/justice relationship is mediated within major international institutions, including the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank."--Jacket
Does China matter? : a reassessment : essays in memory of Gerald Segal( )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerald Segal, a world specialist on Asia, was a prolific writer, including on China's role in world politics. Before he died in 1999 the journal Foreign Affairs published his article 'Does China Matter?'." "Expanding on Segal's theme, this volume gathers together ten leading writers on China to reassess his argument. This book opens with a discussion of Dr. Segal's contribution to scholarship on Asia, and also reprints the 1999 article. The authors then address the question 'does China matter?' by examining both the global and Asian dimensions of China's presence in the military, political, economic and cultural fields." "These essays provide an extension and critique of Segal's work, and represent an authoritative evaluation of China's current policies and future prospects. The question 'does China matter?' remains central to world politics. This book sets out a detailed case for exactly how, why and to whom it matters."--Jacket
A substitute for victory : the politics of peacemaking at the Korean armistice talks by Rosemary Foot( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 2018 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After more than two years of bitter negotiations during which combatants & civilians continued to suffer casualties, the Korean armistice was concluded in July 1953. Focusing on the Americans formulation of negotiating positions & on their attempts to coordinate political goals with military tactics, Rosemary Foot here charts the tortuous path to peace & offers a new explanation for the agonizing length of the talks. She also takes into account the role of the Western allies & the Indian, South Korean, North Korean, & Chinese governments as she examines the complex international setting in which the armistice took place
Human rights and counter-terrorism in America's Asia policy by Rosemary Foot( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 11 September 2001, President George W. Bush's administration has argued that when governments respect both the rule of law and human rights they contribute to a world where terrorism cannot thrive. For this reason, as well as its commitment to promote its own values, the US claims that it will not relax its efforts to advance human rights. However, since 11 September the US has often apparently compromised its stance on human-rights promotion abroad, in its search for military bases, intelligence cooperation and political support in the struggle against terrorism. This Adelphi Paper investigates how national security and human rights considerations have been accommodated in US policy towards five Asian states: China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan and Uzbekistan. Washington values its cooperation with all five countries in its ongoing anti-terrorist campaign. The Paper's main conclusion is a qualified one: in general, US levels of concern about the human-rights record of these five states has diminished and each has exploited the room for manoeuvre offered by changes in US domestic and foreign policies. Nevertheless, where the US executive and legislative branches, together with civil society, are united in their condemnation of a country's human-rights record, then US rhetorical attention to that record remains in place, even if the state is perceived as central to anti-terrorist operations

Hong Kong's transitions, 1842-1997( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reversion of Hong Kong to China on 1 July 1997 is an event of major historical significance. This volume examines this event from a long-term perspective against the background of earlier turning-points in Hong Kong's political, economic and social history. Some of the chapters concentrate on Britain's colonial role from 1842; others place the emphasis on China's policies towards the colony; while some essays focus on the experiences of the Hong Kong people themselves. Hong Kong's Transitions also explores Hong Kong's relations with China and Britain in this troubled last decade of colonial rule, analyses the territory's wider global connections, and offers a basis for assessing its possible future as a part of the Chinese state. The study is intended to appeal to specialists and non-specialists and offers a broad context for interpreting this particularly crucial stage in Hong Kong's history
Migration, the Asian experience by Judith M Brown( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The large-scale migration of Asian peoples has been a major force of historical change in the twentieth century. This volume examines some of the significant flows of migrants within and beyond Asia. Some of the chapters are broad canvasses describing world-wide diaspora: for example, the Parsis or Chinese abroad. Others deal with more localized movements such as Muslims from India to Pakistan. The book focuses on migration as a long-term process and experience, often spanning several generations and building on established traditions of movement. Its approach is multidisciplinary, drawing on the skills of sociologists, anthropologists, historians, comparative theologians, geographers and specialists in international relations. It is offered both as academic study and to give non-specialists insight into the processes that now make up our diverse societies
Framing security agendas : U.S. counterterrorist policies and Southeast Asian responses by Rosemary Foot( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What has it meant to be labeled the "second-front" in the "global war on terror"? Have Southeast Asian states accepted that the primary threat their countries face is Al-Qaeda-inspired terrorist violence, or are other security concerns deemed more pressing? This study investigates threat perceptions in four Southeast Asian countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Singapore. It probes the extent to which their security concerns align with those of Washington, together with their preferred means for dealing with the phenomenon of terrorist violence. The central findings are that, in all four countries, the U.S. counterterrorist security agenda has shaped security perceptions as well as security behavior, though to a greater extent in the Philippines and Singapore than in Indonesia and Malaysia. However, the most important effect in Southeast Asia of this change in the U.S. security priority after 9/11 has been sociopolitical in nature, even where an individual government might not perceive the threat from terrorism to be the major security challenge that it faces. In each of the four states, involvement in the U.S. decision to give overwhelming attention to counterterrorist action has sharpened the focus on long-standing security concerns, especially those connected with the security of the political regime or unity of society. In sum, these countries' domestic concerns interact in complex and subtle ways with their security relationship with the United States, as well as affecting the methods that the individual governments have used to deal with actual or potential terrorist violence inside their countries
