Made in Bangladesh, Cambodia, and Sri Lanka:

The Labor Behind the Global Garments and Textiles Industries
Sanchita Banerjee Saxena
ISBN: 9781604978780

"Saxena's insightful and perceptive book explains how the garment industry in many Asian countries not only weathered the storm predicted when the Multi Fiber Arrangement was phased out, but in fact exploited the opening to become prominent garment exporters in the world. Her analytic explanation for this success, through the concept of domestic coalitions of the important stakeholders, is creative and persuasive." - William Milam, Senior Policy Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center and former U.S. Ambassador to Bangladesh Read More..

North Korea Demystified

Han S. Park
ISBN: 9781604978148

Whereas other studies of North Korea most often rely merely on available secondary resources (e.g., texts, films etc.) rather than firsthand experience or interviews in supporting central claims, this edited volume, led by foremost North Korean expert Dr. Han S. Park, has the unprecedented advantage of all its contributors having actually spent a considerable amount of time “on the ground” in North Korea gathering information for their research. This is also the first volume to address the succession of Kim Jong Un. Read More..

Sexing Political Culture in the History of France

Alison M. Moore
ISBN: 9781604978223

"Provides an insightful overview of the kind of scholarship of gender and sexuality that has emerged in the last decade, and stands as an invaluable resource for historians." – Canadian Journal of History Read More..

Tough Times for the President:

Political Adversity and the Sources of Executive Power
Ryan J. Barilleaux and Jewerl Maxwell
ISBN: 9781604978179

“A fascinating, challenging, and important book. It looks at presidents in trouble, and the authors rightly claim that presidents are in trouble more often than they are in good times. … Barilleaux and Maxwell examine how presidents respond to tough times and what strategies they might employ to govern under such difficult and common circumstances. … Barilleaux and Maxwell have given presidency scholars much to chew on. … given the frequency of tough times, it behooves a president to explore the alternative approaches to governing outlined in this book.” – Presidential Studies Quarterly Read More..

Digital Media in East Asia:

National Innovation and the Transformation of a Region
Carin Holroyd and Kenneth Coates
ISBN: 9781604978056

“Makes timely and valuable confirmations of this new trend … well-researched and presented and makes a convincing contribution to a growing body of literature on digital media studies, East Asian Studies, and information technology policy … highly recommended.” – Pacific Affairs Read More..

Doing Archival Research in Political Science

Scott A. Frisch, Douglas B. Harris, Sean Q. Kelly, and David C.W. Parker
ISBN: 9781604978025

"In my view, the papers of former members of Congress, committee records at the National Archives, and other archival materials are a woefully underutilized source of evidence in legislative scholarship. The chapters of this volume are simply the best treatment that we have of the practical logistics of conducting archival research about the national legislature. I recommend it highly." - C. Lawrence Evans, Newton Family Professor of Government, College of William and Mary Read More..

Challenges to Civil Society:

Popular Protest & Governance in Jamaica
Hume Johnson
ISBN: 9781604977820

“This book is lucid and powerful in analyzing the uncivil aspects of civil society, disentangling the dynamics between protesters, the mass media, the general public and government in Jamaica. The book also demonstrates that female researchers such as Hume Johnson—like Nobel Prize–winning female political actors and activists—pair intelligence and persuasive power with pragmatism and courage.” — Joseph Soeters, Netherlands Defence Academy/Tilburg University Read More..

Patriotism:

Insights from Israel
Eyal Lewin
ISBN: 9781604977653

In this systematic inquiry of patriotism and its social and political causes, which goes beyond the analyses of numerous quantitative and qualitative studies, a holistic point of view is presented––one which finally puts together the pieces that form one of the most unique social phenomena. Read More..

Saving American Elections:

A Diagnosis and Prescription for a Healthier Democracy
Anthony Gierzynski
ISBN: 9781604977523

“Many citizens, politicians, and pundits routinely complain about the health of the political system, but few attempt a systematic diagnosis and even fewer recommend treatments. In this highly readable book, Anthony Gierzynski identifies many of the shortcomings in U.S. politics and offers some provocative prescriptions to address them.”— Paul S. Herrnson, University of Maryland Read More..

Local Government Consolidation in the United States

Dagney Faulk and Michael Hicks
ISBN: 9781604977486

Praised by Governor Mitchell Daniels of Indiana, this book has also earned outstanding reviews, including from the Journal of Regional Analysis and Policy, which commends it because it "provides insights into the very timely topic of consolidation.
