CHINA’S GLOBAL ENGAGEMENT

Cooperation, Competition, and Influence in the 21st Century
Edited by Jacques deLisle & Avery Goldstein

Mar 2017 365pp

9780815729693 Paperback £30.95 / €37.00

China is again undergoing a period of significant transition. Internally, China’s leaders are
addressing challenges to the economy and other domestic issues after three decades of
dramatic growth and reforms. President Xi Jinping and other leaders also are refashioning
foreign policy to better fit what they see as China’s place in the world. This has included
a more proactive approach to trade and related international economic affairs, a more
vigorous approach to security matters, and a more focused engagement on international
cultural and educational affairs.

In this volume, China specialists from around the world explore key issues raised by a changing China’s interaction
with a changing world. They chronicle China’s emergence as a more capable actor whose engagement is reshaping
international affairs in many dimensions.

AMERICA AND THE FUTURE OF WAR

The Past as Prologue
Williamson Murray

Mar 2017 184pp

9780817920043 Hardback £20.50 / €23.00

Throughout the world today there are obvious trouble spots that have the potential to
explode into serious conflicts at any time in the immediate or distant future. This study
examines what history suggests about the future possibilities and characteristics of
war and the place that thinking about conflict deserves in the formation of American
strategy in coming decades. The author offers a historical perspective to show that armed
conflict between organized political groups has been mankind’s constant companion and
that America must remain prepared to use its military power to deal with an unstable,
uncertain, and fractious world.

INTERNATIONAL LAW IN WORLD POLITICS

An Introduction, Third Edition

9781626376045 Paperback £21.95 / €28.00

Reflecting a dramatically-changing global context, the third edition of this introductory

THE POLITICAL LIFE OF MARY KALDOR

Ideas and Action in International Relations
Melinda Rankin

Mar 2017 265pp
9781626375932 Hardback £84.95 / €97.00

Although more than a little controversial, Mary Kaldor’s academic work and ideas
have both stimulated and influenced debate in the Pentagon, the United Nations, the
European Union, NATO, and beyond. How did this come about? And how did Kaldor reach
the conclusions outlined in her seminal books?

Melinda Rankin traces the evolution of Kaldor’s work, revealing how her thinking
developed from her years as an antiwar activist and scholar in the 1970s-1980s, through
her direct experiences of war in the Balkans and Caucasus, to her present support of armed
humanitarian intervention to defend civilians from state and quasi-state violence.

UKRAINE OVER THE EDGE

Russia, the West and the “New Cold War”
Gordon M. Hahn

Jun 2017 263pp
9781476669014 Paperback £43.95 / €51.00

The Ukrainian drama, which burst onto the headlines in autumn 2013, was one long and
complex in its making. In contrast to other studies of the Ukrainian conflict, the present
study examines in detail its historical background and complex causality - from the rise
of the mass demonstrations on Kiev’s Maidan to the making of the post-revolt Maidan
regime.

Two great schisms that shaped the Ukrainian crisis and their historical, cultural, and
geopolitical causes are dissected. One schism lay within Ukraine itself with western
and southeastern Ukraine divided by different historical, ethnic, linguistic, religious, ideological, socioeconomic, and
ultimately political and international orientations. The other – at the international level – was driven by geopolitical
factors, real and conjured or ‘imagined.’
