New regionalisms in the global political economy by Shaun Breslin( )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the financial crisis in large parts of the world at the end of the 20th century, regionalisms in the global political economy have evolved in a number of interesting ways. This book seeks to bring together the leading scholars in the field to provide cutting-edge analyses of contemporary regions and regionalist projects. "New Regionalisms in the Global Economy" provides an integration of theoretical considerations with detailed analyses of a wide range of case studies from across the world - from Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe and the South Pacific. The chapters systematically consider the relationship between globalization, financial crisis, and regional projects. In combination, the contributions to this volume facilitate the widest possible base within the literature for a truly comparative study of contemporary regionalism
Online Chinese nationalism and China's bilateral relations( )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,086 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the Chinese were officially plugged into the virtual community in 1994, the usage of the internet in the country has developed at an incredible rate. By the end of 2008, there were approximately 298 million netizens in China, a number which surpasses that of the U.S. and ranks China the highest user in the world. The rapid development of the online Chinese community has not only boosted the information flow among citizens across the territory, but has also created a new form of social interaction between the state, the media, various professionals and intellectuals, as well as China's or
China and the global political economy by Shaun Breslin( Book )

36 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a relatively short period, the growth of investment to China and the resulting increase in Chinese trade has resulted in a reconfiguration of the East Asian regional economy, and is now altering financial and resource flows across the globe. This book explains how this transformation has come about, focusing on the interplay between domestic politics in China and the transition from socialism on one hand, and the ongoing evolution of global or transnational production networks on the other."--Jacket
Comparative government and politics : an introduction by Rod Hague( Book )

39 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fourth edition of Comparative Government and Politics has been comprehensively revised and rewritten throughout to cover the major changes since the collapse of communism and the end of the Cold War. New chapters have been added on the global context, democracy and democratization, federal, unitary and local politics, and the comparative method."--BOOK JACKET. "The 'three-worlds' perspective used as an organizing framework in previous editions has been replaced by a focus on three dimensions of variation between states: democratic versus authoritarian; consolidated versus transitional; and developed versus developing. The book remains, however, as resolutely international in scope as ever, with chapters organized thematically rather than country by country."--BOOK JACKET
Mao by Shaun Breslin( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and Vietnamese and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines Mao as a revolutionary general and founder of the leader of the world's largest nation. Explores Mao's career as an astute and often brutal political manipulator . Looks at how Mao became a victim of his own obsession with power. Shaun Breslin explores the career of Mao Zedung (1892-1976) from a number of angles, as revolutionary general, as founder and leader of the world's largest nation for almost thirty convulsive years, as ideologist, as astute and often brutal political manipulator and ultimately as a victim of his own obsession with power. There are two stories here, how Mao established a communist party state in mainland China and what he accomplished as its leader. The triumph of 1949 was won after a quarter-century of epic struggle. Not only did Mao and the Communists withstand the attacks of the ruling nationalists party and Japanese invasion in 1937, But Mao also had to wage his own battle within the movement against those who looked to Moscow to show the way forward. To survive such circumstances was achievement enough and Mao's overwhelming victory helps us understand his subsequent status in the China he created. But after establishing a new regime, Mao embarked on a number of radical experiments to transform China and classless society. Even after failures, he was determined to ensure that his revolutionary radicalism would outlive him. Ironically, his extreme actions undermined it and Maosim, and Mao's China, died wit him in 1976. "Mao" is a crisply written and very interesting appraisal of one of the most controversial shapers of the modern world. And, as the other titles in the "Profiles in Power" series, it is not a biography, though inevitably it contains much biographical material, it instead analyzes the major features, achievements and failures of Mao's career
Microregionalism and world order by Shaun Breslin( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third in a series that began with Gamble and Payne's Regionalism and World Order (1995) and Hook and Kearns' Subregionalism and World Order (1999), this text examines formal and informal regionalist politics within the context of the analyses presented in the first two volumes. Focusing on interaction and cooperation in political, economic, and security relationships, the ten papers presented by Breslin (politics, U. of Warwick, UK) and Hook (Japanese studies, U. of Sheffield, UK) address a conceptually and geographically diverse range of issues, including the achievements of the Tumen River Area Development Programme, involving the two Koreas, Russia, Mongolia, and Japan; the Maputo Development Corridor running through eastern South Africa to Maputo, the capital of Mozambique; and other development initiatives from the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, Japan, the Zambesi Basin, the U.S.-Mexico border, and around the Black Sea.

China in the 1980s : centre-province relations in a reforming socialist state by Shaun Breslin( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the post-Mao leadership initiated economic reform in 1978, they set in motion a process which resulted in a fundamental redistribution of power within the Chinese party-state. Reducing central administrative economic control was a key component of the reform process. But although the decentralization of power to the provinces and producers was a deliberate central strategy, the resulting growth of provincial economic autonomy has surprised and angered even the architects of the decentralization reforms. China's reformist central leaders must take their share of the blame for the unexpected growth in provincial power in the 1980s. Their decision to adopt an incremental and reactive approach to reform may have been the most practical way of changing the economic system, but it never-the-less prepared the ground for provincial considerations gradually to overtake national concerns in local economic decision making. The resulting redistribution of power between centre and provinces has not only obstructed the attainment of some of the goals of reform, but also has important implications for the future trajectory of the Chinese political system

Chinese politics and international relations : innovation and invention by Nicola Horsburgh( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The question of how China will relate to a globalising world is one of the key issues in contemporary international relations and scholarship on China yet the angle of innovation has not been properly addressed within the field This book explores innovation in China from an International Relations perspective in terms of four areas foreign and security policy international relations theory soft power image management and resistance. Under the complex condition of globalisation innovation becomes a particularly useful analytical concept because it is well suited to capturing the hybridity of actors and processes under globalisation. By adopting this theme studies not only reveal a China struggling to make the future through innovation but also call attention to how China itself is made in the process. The book is divided into four sections. Part 1 focuses on conceptual innovation in Chinas foreign and security policies since 1949 Part 2 explores theoretical innovation in terms of a potential Chinese school of International Relations Theory. Part 3 expands on innovation in terms of image management a form of soft power in particular how China exports its image both to a domestic and foreign audience. Part 4 highlights how innovation is used in China by grassroot popular groups to resist official narratives. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of Chinese studies Chinese foreign policy and international relations, international relations theory and East Asian security"--

East Asia and the global crisis by Shaun Breslin( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book traces the impact of the global financial crisis on East Asia, and the way that key regional states responded to the crisis. It considers the extent to which the region is decoupling from the global economy (or the West), the impact of crises on the definition of "region", and the effectiveness and functioning of regional institutions and governance mechanisms (including environmental governance). A key focus of the book is the increasing legitimacy of statist alternatives to (neo)liberal development strategies and modes of governance -- or perhaps more correctly, the extent to which the legitimacy of "western" norms and practices have been delegitimized by the crisis. This book was originally published as a special issue of Contemporary Politics
