Cuban–Latin American Relations in the Context of a Changing Hemisphere

Gary Prevost and Carlos Oliva Campos
ISBN: 9781604977592

This volume seeks to fill a very significant void in the recently published scholarship in English on Cuba’s relationship with Latin America. Cuban foreign policy has received attention over the years, but the bulk of the scholarship has been on its relationship with the United States. This book demonstrates conclusively that a decade into the twenty-first century, Cuba has achieved a position in the hemisphere that is far less isolated than at any previous time since the triumph of the Cuban revolution in 1959. That reintegration into hemispheric affairs is evident in many crucial areas like politics, economics, and culture. Read More..

Michael S. Laver
ISBN: 9781604977387

In so doing, this study will situate the edicts––which are largely taken for granted, even though little has been studied––in Japan’s early modern history. Read More..

Contingent Employment, Workforce Health, and Citizenship

Marcia E. Facey
ISBN: 9781604977431

The increasing prevalence of contingent work has prompted concerns about its health implications for contingent workers.The research reported in this book casts light on the discrepant health-related findings by examining contingent work from the perspective of workers, through an exploration of how they experience and understand this form of work and how these experiences and understandings might affect health. The study revealed a strong discursive aspect to workers’ experience, and these discourses are the focus of this book. Read More..

Governing the States and the Nation:

The Intergovernmental Policy Influence of the National Governors Association
Mitchel Herian
ISBN: 9781604977295

Current empirical work on the American governorship has generally failed to consider the importance of the governors’ role in helping shape federal policy.This book strives to address this gap in the research literature by focusing on the intergovernmental role of the nation’s governors. This is done by examining the lobbying efforts of the governors through their national organization, the National Governors Association (NGA). Read More..

Defamation, Libel Tourism and the Speech Act of 2010:

The First Amendment Colliding with the Common Law
Harry Melkonian
ISBN: 9781604977264

"As Harry Melkonian points out in his highly readable book, the SPEECH Act can fairly be described as a prompt legislative response to a non-existent problem ... this book is a significant contribution to the comparative literature on the principles of defamation law applicable in the English speaking world ... [and] a valuable and accessible primer on the principal decisions and trends in American and English defamation law and a plea to American courts, when considering whether to recognise and enforce foreign defamation judgments, to look to comity rather than jingoism." - Media & Arts Law Review Read More..
