International Relations in the Global Village

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Informative and highly relevant to contemporary global politics, the readings in the anthology International Relations in the Global Village teach students about fundamental international relations theories and explain the implications these theories have for nation-states, sub-national groups, surpranational organizations, and the people who comprise them. Beginning with realism, liberalism, and idealism, the book examines how certain theories took root and developed over time. It addresses how these theories affected history, shaping or changing it. The material then moves on to more contemporary theories including recent discourse on human rights, internationalism, and globalization, and examines how these have led to a new phase in world affairs. Finally, the material sheds lights on current issues of international security, terrorism, and feminism in conjunction with democratization and Islamization. Students will increase their understanding of how governments, international organizations, and global institutions take part in the making of the international community. International Relations in the Global Village offers articulate, balanced points of view on complex issues. An intelligent, well-thought-out blend of the theoretical and the actual, the book is an ideal reader for courses in international relations and current world affairs.

Security in Post-Conflict Africa
212,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Policing is undergoing rapid change in Africa as a result of democratization, the commercialization of security, conflicts that disrupt policing services, and peace negotiations among former adversaries. These factors combined with the inability of Africa’s state police to provide adequate protection have resulted in the continuing popularity of various forms of nonstate policing. Based on six years of field work, Professor Bruce Baker presents his findings on eight African countries in Security in Post Conflict Africa: The Role of Nonstate Policing. How well does nonstate policing work? Professor Baker’s research, gathered through interviews, observations, and focus groups, examines the complex types of law enforcement and crime prevention systems that have developed during times of political and social instability. He explores the concept of nonstate policing, explains why it dominates African security provision, describes the services provided, measures the levels of local support, and discusses issues of accountability. He examines the potential hazards of working with nonstate police and suggests ways to enhance these systems and to establish partnerships with the state police for the benefit of the citizens. Are collaborative efforts the key to security? Challenging prevailing assumptions in academic and policy circles about nonstate policing, this groundbreaking work provides insight into the optimum security model, whereby success is determined by the quality and efficacy of the security received by the people, regardless of who delivers that service. The author maintains a related website with supplemental information.
