Dynamics among nations : the evolution of legitimacy and development in modern states by Hilton L Root( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in English and Chinese and held by 1,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Liberal internationalism has been the West's foreign policy agenda since the Cold War, and the West has long occupied the top rung of a hierarchical system. In this book, Hilton Root argues that international relations, like other complex ecosystems, exists in a constantly shifting landscape, in which hierarchical structures are giving way to systems of networked interdependence, changing every facet of global interaction. Accordingly, policymakers will need a new way to understand the process of change. Root suggests that the science of complex systems offers an analytical framework to explain the unforeseen development failures, governance trends, and alliance shifts in today's global political economy. Root examines both the networked systems that make up modern states and the larger, interdependent landscapes they share. Using systems analysis -- in which institutional change and economic development are understood as self-organizing complexities -- he offers an alternative view of institutional resilience and persistence. From this perspective, Root considers the divergence of East and West; the emergence of the European state, its contrast with the rise of China, and the network properties of their respective innovation systems; the trajectory of democracy in developing regions; and the systemic impact of China on the liberal world order. Complexity science, Root argues, will not explain historical change processes with algorithmic precision, but it may offer explanations that match the messy richness of those processes"--provided by publisher

The fountain of privilege : political foundations of markets in Old Regime France and England by Hilton L Root( )

27 editions published between 1994 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hilton Root's new book applies contemporary economic and political theory to answer long-standing historical questions about modernization. It contrasts political stability in Georgian England with the collapse of the Old Regime in France. Why did a century of economic expansion rupture France's political foundations while leaving those of Britain intact? Comparing the political and financial institutions of the two states, Root argues that the French monarchy's tight control of markets created unresolvable social conflicts whereas England's broader power base permitted the wider distribution of economic favors, resulting in more flexible and efficient markets

"Why does capital formation often fail to occur in developing countries? In Capital and Collusion, Hilton Root explores the political incentives that either foster growth or steal nation's growth prospects. The book examines the frontier between risk and uncertainty, analyzing the forces driving development in both developed and undeveloped regions."--Jacket
