National Innovation and the Transformation of a Region
China, South Korea, Taiwan and Japan are more than prominent players in the new digital economy. As a collective force, East Asia dominates the global digital shift, producing much of the technology that underpins global digital integration and, now, establishing a steadily expanding presence in terms of digital content. This book argues that the underappreciated scale of East Asian activity in this key sector is setting up the region as a global leader in the new economy, quietly building global dominance in manufacturing, digital implementations and, most recently, digital content production.
Genocide and the Politics of Memory
Through careful analysis of the experiences of those who witnessed the war and other sources, this book reveals neglected aspects of the Biafra war described as the first black on black genocide in post-colonial Africa.
"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
An Examination of Lobbying, Wavering Electors, and Campaigns for Faithless Votes
"Robert Alexander convincingly argues that presidential electors––long considered by many as inconsequential, if not benign––are a serious danger to the health of our representative democracy. One of the first systematic studies of its kind, this book is indispensible for a deeper understanding of the presidential electoral process.”
