Democratization from Above: The Logic of Local Democracy in the Developing World, Bohlken, Anjali Thomas
5 Bohlken, Anjali Thomas Democratization from Above: The Logic of Local Democracy in the Developing World
Cambridge, United Kingdom Cambridge University Press, 2016 1107128870 / 9781107128873 First Edition Hardcover As New Hardcover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Sterling condition hardcover copy, with unbruised tips, tight binding, and clean internals, showing only very slight shelf- and edge-wear to its glossy, pictorial covers; not ex-library, with neither underlining nor highlighting anywhere. According to the publisher, "Democratization from Above seeks to explain why some national and state governments in the developing world introduce reforms to make local governance more democratic while others neglect or actively undermine democracy at local levels of government. The study challenges conventional wisdom that local democratization is implemented as a means of granting more autonomy to local actors. Instead, Anjali Thomas Bohlken argues that local democratization offers higher level government elites who lack control over party organizational networks an alternative means of increasing the effectiveness of local intermediaries on whom these elites rely to mobilize political support. The book starts with a focus on India and uses original data, and a combination of qualitative and quantitative evidence, to show support for the argument. The study then relies on an original cross-national dataset to show how the argument helps explain the variation in the implementation of local democratization reforms across the developing world." Volume contains scholarly apparatus in the form of, e.g., notes, index, and bibliography. xvii + 288 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.

Belonging, Solidarity and Expansion in Social Policy, Borner, Stefanie
6 Borner, Stefanie Belonging, Solidarity and Expansion in Social Policy
England Palgrave Macmillan, 2013 1137319577 / 9781137319579 First Edition Hardcover As New No Dust Jacket Hardcover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Sterling condition hardcover copy, gift-quality condition, unread. Tips unbruised, spine and binding tight, pages bright and clear, paste-downs neat and tidy, and not ex-library; neither underlining nor highlighting. From the publisher's blurb: "Belonging, Solidarity and Expansion in Social Policy examines processes of social policy formation and shifting solidarities from the perspective of the actors most affected. Using the examples of nineteenth century mutual benefit societies in the UK and Germany, and EU level social policy, it shows empirically how actors are able to shift their solidarities towards strangers and reveals the argumentative patters concerning such a transformation. The book s innovative research programme provides theoretical and empirical insights on the question regarding the relationship of belonging and social policy. It offers a new theory on the formation of redistributive preferences based on an approach combining theories of solidarity and structural incentives. The analysis shows how these preferences are shaped by available institutional alternatives, cost-benefit-calculations and identity-oriented interests, and thus offers new empirical evidence on how individuals are able to reintegrate wider identities and align their solidarities also at the European level." viii + 235 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.

Politics of Globalization, Dasgupta, Samir and Jan Nederveen Pieterse, eds.
13 Dasgupta, Samir and Jan Nederveen Pieterse, eds. Politics of Globalization
New Delhi Sage Publications Pvt. Ltd, 2009 817829947X / 9788178299471 Hardcover Near Fine Hardcover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Sturdy, attractive, tightly bound, internally clean hardcover copy, with unbruised tips, neat and tidy paste-downs; not ex-library, with neither highlighting nor underlining. Glossy, pictorial covers. Volume contains scholarly apparatus in the form of, e.g., notes, index, and bibliography. Contributions by Samir Dasgupta, Andre Gunder Frank, Manfred B. Steger, Leslie Sklair, William K. Tabb, Ray Kiely, Immanuel Wallerstein, and Douglas Kellner. From the publisher's blurb, "Politics of Globalization presents an up-to-date perspective on the kaleidoscopic politics of globalization. The authors analyse the existing definitions of capitalism and argue that globalization and the consequent growing multi-polarity in world politics is not a crisis but a proliferation of capitalisms. This network of capitalisms becomes the framework of the politics of the new globalization. This compilation by social scientists across the globe is an empirical and theoretical exploration of the socio-political responses to globalization. The authors examine the impacts of the decline of the US domination in trade and finance and compare it to the rise of Asian economies, with special focus on China and India. The articles explore the multiple impacts of globalization: the impact of new global political relations on 21st century international division of labour, the relation between gender equality and globalization, trade union politics and globalization, ecological politics and globalization discourse, dual citizenship and global politics, and globalization of language and culture. They also discuss the anti-globalization movements and argue that these might change the course of current trends in globalization processes. This book will be of great value for social scientists and economists as well as politicians, social activists, and other professionals interested in the study of globalization and its consequences." xxvi + 439 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.

14 Drexler, Elizabeth F. Aceh, Indonesia: securing the insecure state
Philadelphia University of Pennsylvania Press, 2008 081224057X / 9780812240573 First Edition Hard Cover As New As New Hard Cover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
A clean, tight copy with no markings in the text and minimal wear to the boards; gift-quality condition, still bright and shiny dust jacket. From the dust jacket blurb: "In 1998, Indonesia exploded with both euphoria and violence after the fall of its longtime authoritarian ruler, Soeharto, and his New Order regime. Hope centered on establishing the rule of law, securing civilian control over the military, and ending corruption. Indonesia under Soeharto was a fundamentally insecure state. Shadowy organizations, masterminds, provocateurs, puppet masters, and other mysterious figures recalled the regime's inaugural massive anticommunist violence in 1965 and threatened to recreate those traumas in the present. Threats metamorphosed into deadly violence in a seemingly endless spiral. In Aceh province, the cycle spun out of control, and an imagined enemy came to life as armed separatist rebels. Even as state violence and systematic human rights violations were publicly exposed after Soeharto's fall, a lack of judicial accountability has perpetuated pervasive mistrust that undermines civil society. Elizabeth F. Drexler analyzes how the Indonesian state has sustained itself amid anxieties and insecurities generated by historical and human rights accounts of earlier episodes of violence.In her examination of the Aceh conflict, Drexler demonstrates the falsity of the reigning assumption of international human rights organizations that the exposure of past violence promotes accountability and reconciliation rather than the repetition of abuses. She stresses that failed human rights interventions can be more dangerous than unexamined past conflicts, since the international stage amplifies grievances and provides access for combatants to resources from outside the region. Violent conflict itself, as well as historical narratives of past violence, become critical economic and political capital, deepening the problem. The book concludes with a consideration of the improved prospects for peace in Aceh following the devastating 2004 tsunami.

19 Howland, Douglas and Luise White The State of Sovereignty: territories, laws, populations
Bloomington, Indiana Indiana University Press, 2009 0253220165 / 9780253220165 Soft Cover Fine Soft Cover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
A sterling condition trade paperback with tight binding, no markings, and little if any wear to the cover. Illustrated softpaper wraps. Virtually pristine interior, gift-quality condition. From the rear cover blurb: "The State of Sovereignty" examines how it came to pass that the nation-state became the prevailing form of governance in the world today. Spanning the 19th and 20th centuries and addressing colonization and decolonization around the globe, these essays argue that sovereignty is a set of historically contingent practices, and not something that accrues naturally to states. The contributors explore the different ways in which sovereign political forms have been defined and have defined themselves, placing recent debates about nations and national identity within a broader history of sovereignty, territory, and legality.
