International Relations and the Arctic:

Understanding Policy and Governance
Robert W. Murray and Anita Dey Nuttall
ISBN: 9781604978766

"This is a fantastic and elaborate collection ... this book is right on time. ... The good news about the present volume is that it does not simply treat the region as just another case of the appplication and replication of paradigmatic international relation (IR) theories. Rather, the book shall "throw light on how the Arctic as an area of study contributes to the IR discipline.' The contributors have done a great job doing so and their efforts will be of great interest to both the Arctic studies community and IR scholars." - Polar Record Read More..

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..

Performance, Theatre, and Society in Contemporary Nicaragua:

Spectacles of Gender, Sexuality, and Marginality
Alberto Guevara
ISBN: 9781604978612

Although there has been some excellent academic research focusing on performance or/and theatre in Nicaragua, such scholarship seldom attends to the very important connections between daily staged public social acts and local, national/global politics that deal directly and indirectly with marginalized social/cultural landscapes in this country. This book fills the gap by examining the connections between Nicaragua’s marginalized landscapes and bodies, between social/political visibility and invisibility, and the relationship between social abandonment and social encompassment in the nation.

Schoolteachers in the News:

A Historical Analysis of Coverage in The West Australian Newspaper
Kathryn Shine and Tom O'Donoghue
ISBN: 9781604978339

Despite the recognition that the news media has an influential agenda-setting function, plays a pivotal role in shaping public opinion, and can influence educational policy, research on this is scarce. This book helps fill the gap on how teachers are depicted in the media and points the way towards one of a number of avenues of research that other scholars in the field could take for various contexts (including different countries) and time periods. 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..

Climate Change Politics:

Communication and Public Engagement
Anabela Carvalho and Tarla Rai Peterson
ISBN: 9781604978230

“This book is a major contribution to the field of climate communications ... Through their focus on both theoretical models and the demonstration of these approaches in a series of case studies, Carvalho and Peterson have initiated a new and extremely fruitful line of work that communications scholars need to build upon.” – Robert J. Brulle, Drexel University and Stanford University Read More..

2119 – The Year Global Democracy Will Be Realized

Leif Lewin
ISBN: 9781604978186

It took two hundred years to implement democracy within the nation-state, from the emergence of democratic theories during the Enlightenment to the introduction of popular government after World War I. If the same process were to follow at the international level, and the treaty of Versailles was taken as the baseline for the calculation, this book by eminent political scientist Leif Lewin argues that a democratic world order could be expected to emerge by 2119.

The Political and Economic Sustainability of Health Care in Canada:

Private-Sector Involvement in the Federal Provincial Health Care System
Howard A. Palley, Marie-Pascale Pomey, and Owen B. Adams
ISBN: 9781604978155

"A rare contribution to Canadians studies——a most welcome addition to scholarly works in this field. A bonus: the chapter on Quebec. It is extremely useful for teaching because there is so little written about this French-speaking province. Many studies omit Quebec because it is so hard to find material in English ... this alone makes the book extremely valuable to scholars." - Publius: The Journal of Federalism Read More..

On China By India:

From Civilization to Nation-State
Chih-yu Shih, Swaran Singh, and Reena Marwah
ISBN: 9781604978063

This groundbreaking collection is the first of its kind to examine China studies from a perspective that is not Western.The book is a report of the first stage of findings on how views on China and the intellectual history of China studies have been embedded in India’s modern history and its evolving self-knowledge as a nation-state. The rise of India and China has caused intellectuals of both countries to become increasingly conscious of each other. Read More..
