ALIBIS OF EMPIRE
Henry Maine and the Ends of Liberal Imperialism

Author: Mantena, Karuna

Offered by: PubMatch


Catagory

Title Description

Alibis of Empire presents a novel account of the origins, substance, and afterlife of late imperial ideology. Karuna Mantena challenges the idea that Victorian empire was primarily legitimated by liberal notions of progress and civilization. In fact, as the British Empire gained its farthest reach, its ideology was being dramatically transformed by a self-conscious rejection of the liberal model. The collapse of liberal imperialism enabled a new culturalism that stressed the dangers and difficulties of trying to "civilize" native peoples. And, hand in hand with this shift in thinking was a shift in practice toward models of indirect rule. As Mantena shows, the work of Victorian legal scholar Henry Maine was at the center of these momentous changes. Alibis of Empire exam...

How Ethnic Politics Have Shaped Government Responses to AIDS

Author: Lieberman, Evan S.

Offered by: PubMatch

Title Description

The first systematic, comparative analysis of the politics of HIV/AIDS Why have governments responded to the HIV/AIDS pandemic in such different ways? During the past quarter century, international agencies and donors have disseminated vast resources and a set of best practice recommendations to policymakers around the globe. Yet the governments of developing countries in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean continue to implement widely varying policies.

CAMPAIGN CRISIS
Detours on the Road to Congress

Author: Garrett, R. Sam

Offered by: PubMatch


Catagory

Title Description

Garrett explores how political professionals navigate crises over the course of congressional campaigns. How do sleepy congressional campaigns become heated battles? What happens behind the scenes during pivotal moments? Sam Garrett explores the dynamic process of electioneering by focusing on the insights and activities of political professionals: the consultants, party officials, staffers, and others who make a career out of campaigning. As his analysis makes clear, how these experts handle crises - be they real, imagined, or manufactured by or for the competition - often shapes electoral outcomes. Garrett explores how political professionals navigate crises over the course of congressional campaigns.

EMPIRES IN WORLD HISTORY
Power and the Politics of Difference

Author: Burbank, Jane & Cooper, Frederick

Offered by: PubMatch


Catagory

Title Description

How empires used diversity to shape the world order for over two millenia. Empires--vast states of territories and peoples united by force and ambition--have dominated the political landscape for more than two millennia. Empires in World History departs from conventional European and nation-centered perspectives to take a remarkable look at how empires relied on diversity to shape the global order. Beginning with ancient Rome and China and continuing across Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Africa, Jane Burbank and Frederick Cooper examine empires' conquests, rivalries, and strategies of domination--with an emphasis on how empires accommodated, created, and manipulated differences among populations. Burbank and Cooper examine Rome and China from the third century BCE, emp...

HOW TERRORISM ENDS
Understanding the Decline and Demise of Terrorist Campaigns

Author: Cronin, Audrey Kurth

Offered by: PubMatch


Catagory

Title Description

Why every terrorist movement comes to an end - and how this history can help us defeat Al-Quaeda Amid the fear following 9/11 and other recent terror attacks, it is easy to forget the most important fact about terrorist campaigns: they always come to an end--and often far more quickly than expected. Contrary to what many assume, when it comes to dealing with terrorism it may be more important to understand how it ends than how it begins. Only by understanding the common ways in which terrorist movements have died out or been eradicated in the past can we hope to figure out how to speed the decline of today's terrorist groups, while avoiding unnecessary fears and costly overreactions. In How Terrorism Ends, Audrey Kurth Cronin examines how terrorist campaigns have met th...

God's Wisdom

Author: Volf, Mrioslav, Freet

Offered by: PubMatch


Catagory

Title Description

Three and a half billion people—the majority of the world’s population—profess Christianity or Islam. Renowned scholar Miroslav Volf’s controversial proposal is that Muslims and Christians do worship the same God—the only God. As Volf reveals, warriors in the “clash of civilizations” have used “religions”—each with its own god and worn as a badge of identity—to divide and oppose, failing to recognize the one God whom Muslims and Christians understand in partly different ways. Writing from a Christian perspective, and in dialogue with leading Muslim scholars and leaders from around the world, Volf reveals surprising points of intersection and overlap between these two faith traditions: • What the Qur’an denies about God as the Holy Trinity has b...

MIGRATIONS AND MOBILITIES

Author: Benhabib, Seyla; Resnik, Judith

Offered by: PubMatch


Title Description

In an increasingly globalized world, the movement of peoples across national borders is posing unprecedented challenges, for the people involved as well as for the places to which they travel and their countries of origin. Citizenship is now a topic in focus around the world but much of that discussion takes place without sufficient attention to the women, men, and children, in and out of families, whose statuses and treatments depend upon how countries view their arrival. As essays in this volume detail, both the practices and theories of citizenship need to be reappraised in light of the array of persons and of twentieth-century commitments to their dignity and equality. Migrations and Mobilities uniquely situates gender in the context of ongoing, urgent conversations...
