Votes, vetoes, and the political economy of international trade agreements by Edward D Mansfield ( )
9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Preferential trading arrangements (PTAs) play an increasingly prominent role in the global political economy, two notable examples being the European Union and the North American Free Trade Agreement. These agreements foster economic integration among member states by enhancing their access to one another's markets. Yet despite the importance of PTAs to international trade and world politics, until now little attention has been focused on why governments choose to join them and how governments design them. This book offers valuable new insights into the political economy of PTA formation. Many economists have argued that the roots of these agreements lie in the promise they hold for improving the welfare of member states. Others have posited that trade agreements are a response to global political conditions. Edward Mansfield and Helen Milner argue that domestic politics provide a crucial impetus to the decision by governments to enter trade pacts. Drawing on this argument, they explain why democracies are more likely to enter PTAs than nondemocratic regimes, and why as the number of veto players--interest groups with the power to block policy change--increases in a prospective member state, the likelihood of the state entering a trade agreement is reduced. The book provides a novel view of the political foundations of trade agreements."--Publisher's website
Electing to fight : why emerging democracies go to war by Edward D Mansfield ( Book )
15 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"To promote democracy, the United States has provided economic assistance, political support, and technical advice to emerging democracies in Eastern and Central Europe, and it has attempted to remove undemocratic regimes through political pressure, economic sanctions, and military force. In Electing to Fight, Edward Mansfield and Jack Snyder challenge the widely accepted basis of these policies by arguing that states in the early phases of transitions to democracy are more likely than other states to become involved in war." "Drawing on both qualitative and quantitative analysis, Mansfield and Snyder show that emerging democracies with weak political institutions are especially likely to go to war. Leaders of these countries attempt to rally support by invoking external threats and resorting to belligerent, nationalist rhetoric. Mansfield and Snyder point to this pattern in cases ranging from revolutionary France to contemporary Russia. Because the risk of a state's being involved in violent conflict is high until democracy is fully consolidated, Mansfield and Snyder argue, the best way to promote democracy requires - such as the rule of law - and only then encouraging mass political participation and elections. Readers will find this argument particularly relevant to prevailing concerns about the U.S. attempts to build democracy in Iraq. Electing to Fight also calls into question the wisdom of urging early elections elsewhere in the Islamic world and in China."--BOOK JACKET
Power, trade, and war by Edward D Mansfield ( Book )
9 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Using quantitative analyses of structural and process-level factors, Mansfield examines the systemic influences on the outbreak of various types of interstate war. His results suggest that polarity is a less significant influence on war than the concentration of capabilities or the level of international trade. Power, Trade, and War will stand as an indispensable reference for both theoretical and empirical research concerning the international political economy and international conflict

The nexus of economics, security, and international relations in East Asia by Avery Goldstein ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While, over the last 30 years, the global economy's center of gravity has shifted to East Asia, the region has remained surprisingly free of interstate military conflict. Yet this era of peace and growth has been punctuated by periodic reminders of enduring security problems in the region-from China's military modernization, to unresolved territorial disputes, to persistent tensions on the Korean peninsula. This volume is one of the first to treat these issues of economics and security as interconnected rather than separate. Its authors-leading scholars from the U.S. and China-shed new light

The political economy of nontariff barriers : a cross-national analysis by Edward D Mansfield ( Book )
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This article focuses on the societal and statist approaches in determining trade policy. Societal theories attribute patterns of protection to variations in demands made by pressure groups, whereas statist theories emphasize the effects of the "national interest" and domestic institutions in determining the level of protection. The purpose of this article is to provide some quantitative evidence on the merits of these two theories and to indicate that, far from being mutually exclusive, they are complementary. The analysis centers on explaining cross-national patterns of nontariff barriers (NTBs).--SCAD summary

Globalization and armed conflict by Gerald Schneider ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Globalization and Armed Conflict addresses one of the most important and controversial issues of our time: Does global economic integration foster or suppress violent disputes within and among states? Here, cutting-edge research by leading figures in international relations shows that expanding commercial ties between states pacifies some, but not necessarily all, political relationships. The authors demonstrate that the pacific effect of economic integration hinges on democratic structures, the size of the global system, the nature of the trade goods, and a reduced influence of the mil
Democratization and War by Edward D Mansfield ( )
4 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper attempts to verify the relationship between the form of political regime and the probability of interstate war. It provides statistical evidence, relied on the classifications of regimes and wars from 1811 to 1980, that in a transitional phase of democratization, formerly authoritarian states where democratic participation is on the rise become more aggressive and war-prone, and they do fight wars with democratic states. The paper shows then that democratizing states are war-prone not because war is popular with the mass public, but because domestic pressures create incentives for elites to drum up nationalist sentiment. It concludes that the task is to draw on an understanding of the process of democratization to keep its unwanted side effects to a minimum.--SCAD summary
Multilateral determinants of regionalism : the effects of GATT/WTO on the formation of preferential trading arrangements by Edward D Mansfield ( )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Preferential trading arrangements (PTAs) have spread widely over the past fifty years. During the same era, multilateral openness has grown to unprecedented heights, spurred by the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and its successor, the World Trade Organization (WTO). If the cornerstone of the manifestly successful multilateral regime is nondiscrimination, why have its members increasingly resorted to preferential liberalization? We argue that developments at the heart of GATT/WTO encourage its members to form PTAs as devices to obtain bargaining leverage within the multilateral regime. Specifically, the growth in GATT/WTO membership, the periodic multilateral trade negotiation rounds, as well as participation and, especially, losses in formal GATT/WTO disputes, have led its members to seek entrance into PTAs. Conducting the first statistical tests on the subject, we find strong evidence in support of this argument."--Editeur
