Mapping national anxieties : Thailand's Southern conflict by Duncan McCargo( Book )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mapping National Anxieties locates the insurgency in the context of Thailand's wider political conflicts, exploring the ambiguous relationships between the Thai state and organised religion, the recent resurgence of Buddhist chauvinism and nationalism. McCargo examines the way Islamic provincial councils have been drawn into the conflict, and scrutinises the special challenges the conflict has created for Thailand's media, which have struggled to communicate a confusing story to an increasingly indifferent wider public. The book then moves beyond the crisis itself to look at ways forward, starting with the controversial National Reconciliation Commission that was established by the Thaksin Shinawatra government to propose peaceful options for reducing the violence. Another chapter explores how far Malay Muslims in Thailand's southern border provinces think of themselves as 'Thai', arguing that there is an important distinction between legal citizenship and informal understandings of what citizenship means and entails. Finally, McCargo invites readers to 'think the unthinkable' by imagining the possibility of autonomy for Thailand's deep South, and the implications for the country as a whole."--Page 4 of cover

Politics, culture and self : East Asian and North European attitudes( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalization may be undermining Kipling's assertion that "East is East and West is West", but arguably this is more in the realms of technological advances and consumer behaviour than (say) in political culture. In the latter arena, much is still made of the contrasts between eastern culture (characterized by collectivism and belief in authority) and western culture (characterized by individualism and belief in democracy). Such comfortable assumptions will be shattered for readers of "Politics, Culture and Self". This volume indeed confirms that differences between East Asia and northern Europe do exist. Provocatively, however, it also points to major similarities (e.g. regarding social harmony and the role of the family in society) as well as significant contrasts mirrored within the two regions (e.g. concerning interpersonal and institutional trust). These results are of especial interest because of the care taken to reduce 'cultural contamination'. The data is derived from extensive and in-depth surveys conducted by a cross-cultural research team in East Asia and northern Europe. Confirming that differences between East Asia and northern Europe exist, this book points to major similarities as well as significant contrasts mirrored within the two regions. This survey data is augmented by historical and analytical contexts that makes it useful for anyone concerned with issues relating to political behaviour at all levels. Here, methodological techniques were used to control for non-cultural differences as well as cultural variation in how people respond to questionnaires. This survey data is augmented by a wealth of historical and analytical contexts that will make the book an essential item in the library of anyone concerned with issues relating to political behaviour at all levels
Internet, governance and democracy : democratic transitions from Asian and European perspectives( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insights from leading specialists in Internet studies allow unique comparative perspectives on the use of the Internet and its importance for political processes. The book aims at an understanding of the challenges of democratic transitions that the Internet poses in both Asia and Europe, using Denmark as an example of the latter region. The Internet and other modern information and communication technologies challenge political thinking, systems and processes all over the world. Whether or not they will lead to more transparency in policy-making and governance - or enhance democratic participation and empowerment - they have certainly provided new opportunities for politicians, governments and civil society. The Internet acts as a frontrunner of globalization and forces policy-makers, governments and civil society alike to consider how to use the Internet
