From Cold War 'security threats' to the 'security challenges'of today The Nordic states or the Nordic peoples? Nielsen Book Data This completely revised and updated third edition of Scandinavian politics today follows the format of earlier editions by providing a uniquely comparative, thematic and insightful treatment of politics and government in the five nation-states of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, along with the three Home Rule territories of Greenland, Faeroes and Aland that together make up the Nordic region or Norden.
Thirteen chapters cover Scandinavia past and present; parties in developmental perspective; the Scandinavian party system model; the Nordic model of government; the Nordic welfare model; legislative-executive relations in the region; the changing security environment and the transition from Cold War 'security threats' to the 'security challenges' of today; and a concluding chapter looks at regional co-operation, Nordic involvement in the 'European project' and the Nordic states as 'moral superpowers'. This new edition will be of relevance to topical UK debates on the Nordic model, welfare system change, Scottish independence and the challenges facing small-state systems in a globalised world.

Palgrave Macmillan,  Description Book — xiii, pages: Summary Introduction-- Stephen A. Romanian Spirituality in Ceausescu's 'Golden Epoch': Tsiolkovskii and the Invention of Russian Cosmism: In Search of Rationality and Objectivity: Nielsen Book Data Religion and science were fundamental aspects of Eastern European communist political culture from the very beginning, and remained in uneasy tension across the region over the decades.
While both topics have long attracted a great deal of scholarly attention, they almost invariably have been studied discretely as separate stories. Religion, Science and Communism in Cold War Europe is the first scholarly effort to explore the delicate interface of religion, science and communism in Cold War Europe.
It brings together an international team of researchers who address this relationship from a number of national viewpoints and thematic perspectives, ranging from mysticism to social science, space exploration to the socialist lifecycle, and architectural heritage to pop culture. The prime ministers of postwar Japan, Frustrated Ambition, Kitaoka Shinichi Chapter 9: Fatalistic Weakness, Fukui Haruhiro Chapter Nielsen Book Data This book examines the lives and times of Japan's postwar prime ministers, covering the period from to Written by Japan's leading scholars, it is the first English-language biographical portrait of these twenty-three individuals who helped lead Japan on its road to recovery, its return to the community of nations, and its subsequent prosperity.
Each chapter brings out, to varying degrees, the larger political and historical environment, party dynamics, and personality traits of the prime ministers. In addition, the book discusses not only the policy choices the prime ministers made, but how those decisions were made and what the consequences were for the country, ruling party, and the individual who made them. The Prime Ministers of Postwar Japan, fills a large void in the literature on postwar Japan by introducing the actual people who made the decisions during these important years, rather than simply discussing the theories and institutions in which those decisions were made.

T7 L58 Unknown. Princeton University Press,  Description Book — xix, pages: Nielsen Book Data The first edition of Unequal Democracy was an instant classic, shattering illusions about American democracy and spurring scholarly and popular interest in the political causes and consequences of escalating economic inequality. This revised and expanded edition includes two new chapters on the political economy of the Obama era.
One presents the Great Recession as a "stress test" of the American political system by analyzing the election and the impact of Barack Obama's "New New Deal" on the economic fortunes of the rich, middle class, and poor. The other assesses the politics of inequality in the wake of the Occupy Wall Street movement, the election, and the partisan gridlock of Obama's second term.
Larry Bartels offers a sobering account of the barriers to change posed by partisan ideologies and the political power of the wealthy. He also provides new analyses of tax policy, partisan differences in economic performance, the struggle to raise the minimum wage, and inequalities in congressional representation. President Obama identified inequality as "the defining challenge of our time. Now more than ever, this is a book every American needs to read.

Possible future developments for Taiwan Recommendations of policy alternatives Let the people of Taiwan decide Taiwan's future. For a country of its size, Taiwan has a tremendous influence on world affairs and U. In this book, Lung-chu Chen gives particular attention to Taiwan's status under international law, and the role of the U.
This book endorses the central purpose of the Taiwan Relations Act-achieving a peaceful resolution to the Taiwan question-while offering policy alternatives that will empower Taiwan to participate more actively in the international arena. This book follows in the tradition of the New Haven School of international law. As such, it defines the common interests of the world community, which include demands for human dignity and security and the protection of human rights in accordance with bedrock norms such as the right to self-determination and the peaceful resolution of conflict.
Chen proposes that in accordance with international law, historical trends, and contemporary political conditions, the people of Taiwan should ultimately determine a path to normalized statehood through a plebiscite under the supervision of the international community. You can't eat freedom: De Jong, Greta author. Two revolutions roiled the rural South after the mids: Political empowerment for black southerners coincided with thetransformation of southern agriculture and the displacement of thousandsof former sharecroppers from the land. Focusing on the plantation regionsof Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi, Greta de Jong analyses how socialjustice activists responded to mass unemployment by lobbying political leaders, initiating antipoverty projects, and forming cooperative enterprises thatfostered economic and political autonomy, efforts that encountered strongopposition from free market proponents who opposed government action tosolve the crisis.
Making clear the relationship between the civil rights movement andthe War on Poverty, this history of rural organising shows how responses tolabor displacement in the South shaped the experiences of other Americanswho were affected by mass layoffs in the late twentieth century, sheddinglight on a debate that continues to reverberate today. A13 D Unknown. Beckett, Francis, London: Description Book — pages ; 25 cm Summary Rock 'n' roll music was replacing the gentle pop songs of Mum and Dad's generation, and it was the first full year of independent television.
As post-war assumptions were shattered, the upper middle class was shaken and the communist left was shocked, radical new ideas about sex, skiffle and socialism emerged, and attitudes shifted on an unprecedented scale - precipitated by the decline of Attlee's Britain and the first intimations of Thatcher's.
From politics and conflict to sport and entertainment, this extraordinary book transports us back in time on a whirlwind journey through the history, headlines and happenings of this most momentous of years, vividlycapturing the revolutionary spirit of - the year that changed Britain.

In the latest volume of the America in the Twentieth Century series, Serrianne chronicles the decade of the s from the fall of the Berlin Wall in to the terrorist attacks of September 11, The post-Cold War and pre-War on Terror era was a unique moment in history regarding both foreign and domestic policies. Serrianne analyzes the cultural changes of the s, including issues of race relations, women's rights, and the LGBT movement.
Backlash to the Civil Rights movement, the Conservative Revolution, Reaganomics in the s, and the election of Bill Clinton created a decade in which both sides of the political spectrum sought to gain their footing. Combining a vivid narrative with informed analysis, America in the Nineties enriches our understanding of that pivotal era.

The Salon des Arts Menagers: Mass Homes for a Changing Society Chapter 4. Housing for the Greatest Number: At Home in Postwar France examines key groups of actors - state officials, architects, sociologists and tastemakers - arguing that modernizers looked to the home as a site for social engineering and nation-building; designers and advocates of the modern home contributed to the democratization of French society; and the French home of the Trente Glorieuses, as it was built and inhabited, was a hybrid product of architects', planners', and residents' understandings of modernity.
This volume identifies the "right to comfort" as an invention of the postwar period and suggests that the modern mass home played a vital role in shaping new expectations for well-being and happiness. A3 R83 Unknown. Au fil de la Crise: El Kenz, Ali author. Description Book — p. Austrian Federalism in comparative perspective . Uno Press ; Innsbruck: Innsbruck University Press,  Description Book — xxxvii, pages: Baby boomers and popular culture: And they did create sweeping, irreversible changes throughout American society-but probably not in the ways their younger selves imagined they would.
Now that the Boomers are in their late-adult or retirement years, their tremendous legacy can clearly be perceived. In retrospect, the paths the members of this generation took to come to power-and how they came to terms with that power-are also apparent. This single-volume work supplies a broad yet detailed critical guide to the Boomer Generation, containing essays on key people, moments, and phenomena not only during the Boomers' s heyday but also their extensive influences on American culture decades afterward.
The contributors address key topics such as the rise of feminism; Civil Rights; the Vietnam War and the anti-war movement; the Beatles, the Grateful Dead, and rock 'n roll; gay rights; idealism, narcissism, and materialism; the influence of television on America, and vice versa; and the transition of Boomers from being "Yippies" to "Yuppies.

This volume presents an alternative perspective by suggesting that there were transnational networks bridging the gap and connecting like-minded people on both sides of the divide. Long before the fall of the Berlin Wall, there were institutions, organizations, and individuals who brought people from the East and the West together, joined by shared professions, ideas, and sometimes even through marriage.

Yet its economy has not fallen by the wayside and has even resisted the great recession that began in By interlinking historical, economic, and political factors and by comparing France with other nations, this book explains the puzzle presented by the development of France. Understanding France's economy requires downplaying the usual policy injunctions demands for less state control and less rigidity in the labor market and instead stressing the importance of constructing a long-term industrial strategy.
Britain and the wars in Vietnam: Prenderghast, Gerald, author. Medals and myths What was British involvement in Vietnam between and ? Britain's peacekeeping role in Southeast Asia after World War II was clear enough but the Commonwealth's purpose in the region later became shadowy. British involvement in the wars fought in Vietnam between and has been the subject of a number of books-most of which focus on the sometimes clandestine activities of politicians-and unsubstantiated claims about British support for the United States' war effort have gained acceptance.
Drawing on previously undiscovered information from Britain's National Archives, this book discusses the conduct of the wars in Vietnam and the political ramifications of UK involvement, and describes Britain's actual role in these conflicts: G7 P74 Unknown. Both became best-selling authors in their twenties with God and Man at Yale and The Naked and the Dead ; both started hugely influential papers National Review and the Village Voice ; both ran for mayor of New York City; both were noted for their exceptional wit and venom; and both became the figurehead of their respective social movements Buckley on the right, Mailer on the left.
Indeed, Buckley and Mailer argued vociferously and publicly about every major issue of their time: But behind the scenes, the two were close friends and trusted confidantes. In Buckley and Mailer, historian Kevin M. Schultz delves into their personal archives to tell the rich story of their friendship, their arguments, and the tumultuous decade they did so much to shape. Here is the entertaining and deeply American story of what Mailer himself called a "difficult friendship": Through it all, Schultz charts their friendship, whether sailing together off the coast of Connecticut, celebrating rave reviews and grousing about lousy ones, and defending each other's decisions privately even as they attack each other's positions publicly.
Brimming with Buckley and Mailer's own thoughts from their personal diaries and letters, Buckley and Mailer also features cameos by other leading figures of the time, including James Baldwin, Joan Didion, Barry Goldwater, Robert F. Schultz delivers a fresh chronicle of the '60s and its long aftermath as well as an enormously engaging work of narrative history that explores these extraordinary figures' contrasting visions of what America was and what it could be.

Description Book — xxv, p. Christian human rights . University of Pennsylvania Press,  Description Book — ix, pages ; 23 cm. Summary Introduction Chapter 1. From Communist to Muslim: Nielsen Book Data In Christian Human Rights, Samuel Moyn asserts that the rise of human rights after World War II was prefigured and inspired by a defense of the dignity of the human person that first arose in Christian churches and religious thought in the years just prior to the outbreak of the war.
The Roman Catholic Church and transatlantic Protestant circles dominated the public discussion of the new principles in what became the last European golden age for the Christian faith. At the same time, West European governments after World War II, particularly in the ascendant Christian Democratic parties, became more tolerant of public expressions of religious piety. Human rights rose to public prominence in the space opened up by these dual developments of the early Cold War. Moyn argues that human dignity became central to Christian political discourse as early as Pius XII's wartime Christmas addresses announced the basic idea of universal human rights as a principle of world, and not merely state, order.
By focusing on the s and s, Moyn demonstrates how the language of human rights was separated from the secular heritage of the French Revolution and put to use by postwar democracies governed by Christian parties, which reinvented them to impose moral constraints on individuals, support conservative family structures, and preserve existing social hierarchies. The book ends with a provocative chapter that traces contemporary European struggles to assimilate Muslim immigrants to the continent's legacy of Christian human rights.
Gilbert, Mark, author. From War to Cold War Chapter 3: Creating the West Chapter 5: Communism in Turmoil Chapter 6: The Berlin Crisis Chapter 7: Really Existing Socialism Chapter 8: The Reluctant Ally Chapter 9: Detente and Solidarity Chapter Reluctant Allies Chapter The Year of Revolutions Chapter Nielsen Book Data This compelling history of Europe's Cold War follows the dramatic arc of the conflict that shaped the development of the continent and defined world politics in the second half of the twentieth century.
Focusing on European actors and events, Mark Gilbert traces the onset of the Cold War, the process of Stalinization in the Soviet bloc, and the difficulties of legitimation experienced by communist regimes in Hungary, Poland, and East Germany even after Stalin's death.
He also shows how Washington's leadership and worldview was contested in Western Europe, especially by Great Britain and French president Charles de Gaulle. The book charts the growing weakness of the communist system in Eastern Europe and the economic and moral reasons for the system's eventual collapse.
It highlights the central role of European leaders in the process of detente and in the diplomatic endgame that concluded the Cold War in Rather than simply a strategic standoff between the superpowers, Gilbert argues, the Cold War was a social and ideological conflict that transformed Europe from Lisbon to Riga. Fast-paced and readable, this political, intellectual, and social history illuminates a conflict that continues to resonate today.

Singapore ; Hackensack, NJ: Cheng Changes in political values in mainland China since the s: This title represents a comprehensive effort to examine the linkages between Confucian culture and democracy.

A91 C66 Unknown. Conquering the fear of freedom: Japanese exchange rate policy since . Takagi, Shinji, author. Oxford University Press, Description Book — xxii, pages: Exchange Rate-Based Stabilization, 2. Achieving Current Account Convertibility, 3. Capital Account Liberalization, 4. Managing Flexibility, 5. Internationalizing the Yen, 6. Foreign Exchange Market Intervention, 7.
It examines how authorities, starting with the imposition of draconian controls over all international financial flows, moved toward eliminating virtually all state interference regulating foreign exchange transactions, including official intervention in the foreign exchange market. It describes how policy and institutional frameworks evolved, explains their domestic and international contexts, and assesses the impacts and consequences of policy actions. Following successful exchange rate-based stabilization in the early s, Japan entered the world trading system with an overvalued currency, which helped perpetuate exchange and capital controls.
As the culture of administrative control became ingrained, Japan took a decidedly gradualist approach to establishing current and capital account convertibility. The protracted capital account liberalization, coupled with slow domestic financial liberalization, created large swings in the yen's exchange rate when it was floated in the s. Politicization by major trading partners of Japan's large bilateral trade surplus pressured authorities to subordinate domestic stability to external objectives.
The ultimate outcome was costly: The book concludes by arguing that the shrinking trade surplus against the background of profound structural changes, the rise of China that has diminished the political intensity of any remaining bilateral economic issues, and the world's sympathy over two decades of deflation have given Japan, at least for now, the freedom to use macroeconomic policies for domestic purposes.

Nielsen Book Data In Post-War Britain cultural interventions were a feature of fascist parties and movements, just as they were in Europe.
This book makes a new major contribution to existing scholarship which begins to discuss British fascism as a cultural phenomenon. A collection of essays from leading academics, this book uncovers how a cultural struggle lay at the heart of the hegemonic projects of all varieties of British fascism. Such a cultural struggle is enacted and reflected in the text and talk, music and literature of British fascism.
Where other published works have examined the cultural visions of British fascism during the inter-war period, this book is the first to dedicate itself to detailed critical analysis of the post-war cultural landscapes of British fascism. Through discussions of cultural phenomena such as folk music, fashion and neo-nazi fiction, among others, Cultures of Post-War British Fascism builds a picture of Post-War Britain which emphasises the importance of understanding these politics with reference to their corresponding cultural output.

The volume analyzes six significant contemporary Confucian philosophers in China and Taiwan, describing their political thought and how they connect their thought to Confucian tradition, and critiques their political proposals and views. It illustrates how Confucianism has transformed in modern times, the divergent understandings of Confucianism today, and how contemporary Chinese philosophers understand democracy, as well as their criticisms of Western political thought.

Few people are aware that Margaret Thatcher was a devout Christian or that she was a preacher before she was a politician. As a child, she would sit in the pews listening to her lay-preacher father, Alf Roberts, hammer home sermons on the Protestant work ethic, God-given liberty and the sanctity of the individual. As her father's archives reveal, it was in the pulpit of Finkin Street's Wesleyan Chapel in Grantham where Thatcherism was born. When Thatcher recited the prayer of St Francis of Assisi on the steps of No 10, it signaled a new era of conviction politics.
Thatcher's rise coincided with the rebirth of the Christian right in Britain committed to wresting the moral mantel from socialism and elevating the market as the true godly path. One institution which did not share this outlook, however, was the Church of England which doggedly defended the Christian origins of Britain's social democracy and condemned the selfish individualism and rampant materialism being let loose in the name of enterprise culture. Margaret Thatcher may have set out to reinvigorate the nation with the non-conformist values of her father, but in the end she created a country that was not more Christian, but more secular; and not more devout, but entirely consumed by a new religion: In upholding the sanctity of the individual, Thatcherism inadvertently signaled the death of Christian Britain.

How the French think: Allen Lane, an imprint of Penguin Books, Description Book — xv, pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates: In this original and entertaining approach to France and the French, Sudhir Hazareesingh describes how the French ways of thought and life connect to make them such a distinctive nation.
Sudhir Hazareesingh is able to show how bold, imaginative and sweeping French thought is, how greatly it values high culture in contrast to the English and how it has given an almost sacred role to the writer - hence the prominent role of intellectuals in French collective life, and the intensity with which ideas are debated.
The book explores the French commitment to rationalism and ideology, their belief in the State, their cult of heroes and their contempt for materialism. It describes their stylistic fetishes, their fondness for general notions, their love of paradoxes, their current fixations with the nation and collective memory, their messianic instincts and their devotion to universalism.
How The French Think ranges from Descartes to Derrida, and from big moral and philosophical issues to the symbolic significance of Asterix and the survival of the French language in a globalized world. Drawing on a colourful range of sources, and written with warmth and humour, it will appeal to all lovers of France and of French culture. The international turn in American studies .
