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

Shirley V. Scott

Jul 2017 340pp

9781626376045 Paperback £21.95 / €28.00

Reflecting a dramatically-changing global context, the third edition of this introductory
textbook introduces the actors, structures, processes, and issues of international law in a
way that makes sense to students of political science. The result is a text that effectively
explains the role that international law plays in the arena of world politics today.

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.’

“Peacebuilding” serves as a catch-all term to describe efforts by an array of international
organizations, nongovernmental organizations, and agencies of foreign states to restore
or construct a peaceful society in the wake - or even in the midst - of conflict. Despite
this variety, practitioners consider themselves members of a global profession. In The
Distinction of Peace, Catherine Goetze investigates the genesis of peacebuilding as a
professional field of expertise since the 1960s, its increasing influence, and the ways it reflects global power structures.

Goetze describes how the peacebuilding field came into being, how it defines who belongs to it and who does not,
and what kind of group culture it has generated. Using an innovative methodology, she investigates the motivations
of individuals who become peacebuilders, their professional trajectories and networks, and the “good peacebuilder” as
an ideal..

A critical assessment of how public policy affects the health of immigrants, this
interdisciplinary volume is an integral contribution to the study of immigration in modern
developed nations. Authors employ a welfare state analysis to examine the political and
economic systems that shape public policy, turning to several Canadian and international
case studies that demonstrate how these policies specifically impact immigrant
experiences and health outcomes. Exploring ideals of multiculturalism, solidarity, and
equity, Dennis Raphael’s edited collection is an excellent resource for students interested in

How is new technology - cyberwarfare, drones, and more - affecting global security?
Are the 2015 Sustainable Development Goals having an impact? What progress are
governments making in dealing with climate change? Is there a viable solution to the
Syrian refugee crisis? How do we reconcile the concepts of universal human rights and
national sovereignty? These are among the difficult questions addressed in this new,
fully revised and updated edition of Introducing Global Issues. Each chapter provides an
analytical overview of the issue addressed, identifies central actors and perspectives, and
outlines past progress and future prospects.

Operative in the KremlinNew & Expanded Edition
Fiona Hill & Clifford G. Gaddy

2015 533pp

9780815726173 Paperback £29.50 / €34.00

Many Putin watchers believe that being able to anticipate the quixotic Russian president’s
next move - whether it’s hosting another grandiose spectacle, crushing a political rival,
or annexing part of a neighbouring country - depends on uncovering the “real” Vladimir
Putin and his true motives.

In this revised and updated edition of their acclaimed study, Russia experts Fiona Hill
and Clifford Gaddy argue that Putin is in fact a man of many complex identities. Drawing
on a range of sources, including their own personal encounters, they describe six that
are most essential: the Statist, the History Man, the Survivalist, the Outsider, the Free Marketeer, and the Case Officer.
Understanding Putin’s multiple dimensions is crucial for policymakers trying to decide how best to deal with Russia.

1956 was an extraordinary year in modern Russian history. It was called “the year of the
thaw” - a time when Stalin’s dark legacy of dictatorship died in February only to be reborn
later that December. Marvin Kalb, then a young diplomatic attache at the US Embassy
in Moscow, observed this tumultuous year that foretold the end of Soviet communism
three decades later. Fluent in Russian, he went where few other foreigners would dare go,
travelling from one end of a changing country to the other and, thanks to his diplomatic
position, meeting and talking with Khrushchev, who playfully nicknamed him Peter the
Great.

In this, his fifteenth book, Kalb writes a fascinating eyewitness account of a superpower in upheaval and of a people
yearning for an end to dictatorship.

the complex roles of Russia’s presidency, security services,
parliament, media, and other actors. The authors argue
that Putin has created an “informational autocracy”,
