Europe's Brexit
The Brexit debate in the UK focuses almost exclusively on the UK's own position within the European Union and largely ignores the reaction and opinion of the other 27 member states. The UK's negotiations will, however, involve each and every member state, as well as the EU institutions, and their past relationships with the UK will be critical for shaping any future international relations. This book offers an in-depth analysis of the attitudes and opinions of the rest of Europe towards the UK's decision to leave. Covering the period from David Cameron's attempt to renegotiate the UK's EU membership prior to the Referendum and closing with the triggering of Article 50, the book charts the individual member-states' response to the UK's referendum process and result. Each essay draws on the research of country experts and together they provide essential context for understanding the likely negotiating position of the European nations towards the UK at this historic juncture and a fascinating insight into their likely future relations with the UK.

Development As A Battlefield
Development as a Battlefield is an innovative exploration of the multidimensional meanings of - and interactions between - conflict and development. The two phenomena are all too often regarded as ostensibly antagonistic. This was exemplified again in the context of the Arab Spring that erupted in December 2010 and was eventually short-lived in several countries of the Middle-East and North-Africa (MENA) region. This volume - the 8th thematic issue of International Development Policy - is an invitation to reconsider and renew the way social scientists usually seek to make sense of socio-political and economic developments in the MENA region and beyond.

The Political Economy of Brexit
The UK's vote to leave the European Union is a pivotal moment in British history. Over the past forty years, the UK's economy has become increasingly intertwined and dependent on its relationship with the other EU member states with both the EU and the UK's economic landscape irrevocably fashioned by its membership. Brexit takes both parties into unchartered territory. At such a time of uncertainty, what can we say for certain about the UK's economic relationship with the EU and what might be the likely flashpoints for negotiations and the unintended consequences of Brexit? This collection of essays explores the ramifications of the Brexit decision for the UK and European economies. The contributors, who all draw on long experience of policy-oriented research on the British economy within the European Union, consider the impact, at least in the short term, of a weaker and less influential UK economy. Questions addressed include: What is the likely impact on our already weak manufacturing industries? How will the withdrawal of EU funding for regional development impact on growth and future economic development outside of London and the South East? What is the likely impact on wages and labour regulations? How are relations with our closest EU neighbours likely to develop, critically for Northern Ireland with the Republic of Ireland, and with the biggest economic player, Germany? What of the Scottish question? How will the City, the engine of UK growth in the past decade, maintain its position as Europe's financial centre? And finally, whither the EU? How will it fare without its second largest economy within the Union? With the UK's withdrawal negotiations likely to last for at least the next two years, and the potential for other calls for referendums in other member states, the economic consequences of leaving the European Union are set to dominate politics in the UK and Europe well in to the future. These essays provide an important first step in assessing the threats and challenges that a Brexit poses for the UK and wider EU economy and will be welcome reading for anyone in search of some rigour and clarity amid the hyperbole of recent months.

The Politics of Technology in Africa: Communication, Development, and Nation-Building in Ethiopia
As more Africans get online, information and communication technologies (ICTs) are increasingly hailed for their transformative potential. Yet, the fascination for the possibilities of promoting more inclusive forms of development in the information age have obfuscated the reality of the complex negotiations among political and economic actors who are seeking to use technology in their competition for power. Building on over ten years of research in Ethiopia, Iginio Gagliardone investigates the relationship between politics, development, and technological adoption in Africa's second most populous country and its largest recipient of development aid. The emphasis the book places on the 'technopolitics' of ICTs, and on their ability to embody and enact political goals, offers a strong and empirically grounded counter-argument to prevalent approaches to the study of technology and development that can be applied to other cases in Africa and beyond.

Palgrave Handbook of Critical International Political Economy
Challenging the assumptions of 'mainstream' International Political Economy (IPE), this Handbook demonstrates the considerable value of critical theory to the discipline through a series of cutting-edge studies. The field of IPE has always had an inbuilt vocation within Historical Materialism, with an explicit ambition to make sense, from a critical standpoint, of the capitalist mode of production as a world system of sometimes paradoxically and sometimes smoothly overlapping states and markets. Having spearheaded the growth of a vigorous critical scholarship in the 1960s and 1970s, however, Marxism and neo-Gramscian approaches became increasingly marginalized over the course of the 1980s. The authors respond to the exposure of limits to mainstream contemporary scholarship in the wake of the onset of the Global Financial Crisis, and provide a comprehensive overview of the field of Critical International Political Economy. Problematizing socioeconomic and political structures, and considering these as potentially transitory and subject to change, the contributors aim not simply to understand a world of conflict, but furthermore to uncover the ways in which purportedly objective analyses reflect the interests of those in positions of privilege and power.

Peacebuilding: Women in International Perspective
This book clarifies some key ideas and practices underlying peacebuilding; understood broadly as formal and informal peace processes that occur during pre-conflict, conflict and post-conflict transformation. Applicable to all peacebuilders, Elisabeth Porter highlights positive examples of women's peacebuilding in comparative international contexts. She critically interrogates accepted and entrenched dualisms that prevent meaningful reconciliation, while also examining the harm of othering and the importance of recognition, inclusion and tolerance. Drawing on feminist ethics, the book develops a politics of compassion that defends justice, equality and rights and the need to restore victims' dignity. Complex issues of memory, truth, silence and redress are explored while new ideas on reconciliation and embracing difference emerge. Many ideas challenge orthodox understandings of peace. The arguments developed here demonstrate how peacebuilding can be understood more broadly than current United Nations and orthodox usages so that women's activities in conflict and transitional societies can be valued as participating in building sustainable peace with justice. Theoretically integrating peace and conflict studies, international relations, political theory and feminist ethics, this book focuses on the lessons to be learned from best practices of peacebuilding situated around the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. Peacebuilding will be of particular interest to peace practitioners and to students and researchers of peace and conflict studies, international relations and gender politics.

Sacred Longings
Noted theologian Mary Grey believes we have gotten out of touch with our deepest desires and that this has caused us to acquiesce in global capitalism's most problematic characteristics. Story and symbol, she argues, can put us back in touch with our ''sacred longings.'' Focusing on such simple yet profound symbols as water, light, and sacred space, she tries to re-instill a spiritual quest. In the end, she envisions spirituality - a kind of ecomystical renewal - as an element in the transformation of desire, lived out in Christian community. Part One examines how our culture has lost heart; Part Two analyzes our restless hearts; Part Three asks us to take heart and rekindle our thirst for righteousness.

The Health Debate
Health care systems across the world are in a state of permanent revolution as they struggle to cope with multiple pressures arising from changing demography, new technologies, and limited resources. Focusing on the British NHS, this book offers a fresh look at how it has coped with such pressures over its 60 year history and considers what the future holds. The book explores the complexity of health policy and health services, offering a critical perspective on their development. A number of tensions are evident in contemporary health policy and the book is organised around a selection of these, including: the funding of health systems and the changing mix of public and private arrangements; the capture of medicine by management; the imbalance between health and health care; and the growing emphasis on markets and competition in health care systems.The health debate offers a lively and accessible reassessment of successive reforms of the NHS and their cyclical nature. A unique feature of the book is its breadth and assembly in one place of a range of interrelated, and largely unresolved, policy puzzles. The book will appeal to all students of health care and health policy, and to policy-makers and health care professionals. Policy and Politics in the Twenty-First Century - This exciting series offers a guide through some of today's most hotly contested policy issues by distinguished leaders in the field. Each book untangles current policy debates, looking behind the rhetoric and spin to discover what is at the core of contemporary political agendas. Authors present their own perspectives and make recommendations for what could - or should - be our priorities for future policy reform.

In Our Time Pb
When British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain returned from his Munich meetings with Adolf Hitler in September 1938, he proclaimed that he held in his hands a document guaranteeing peace in our time. In the decades since, Chamberlain's folly has become the occasion for a commonplace historical lesson: that when the good innocently accept the assurances of the evil, the result is catastrophic. Clement Leibovitz and Alvin Finkel challenge the familiar understanding of Munich as the product of a naive appeasement of Nazi appetites. They argue that it was the culmination of cynical collaboration between the Tory government and the Nazis in the 1930s. Based upon a careful reading of official and unofficial correspondence, conference notes, cabinet minutes, and diaries, In Our Time documents the steps taken under diplomatic cover by the West to strike a bargain with Hitler based upon shared anti-Soviet premises. Munich, write the authors, formalized what had been an informal understanding between Britain and Germany to that point, with France, with varying degrees of enthusiasm and reluctance, concurring: Germany could do as it wished in central and eastern Europe and the democracies were not to intervene, particularly should Germany carry its warfare to the Soviet Union. Gripping, direct, and detailed, In Our Time overturns the conventional wisdom about World War II, its roots, and its lessons. With profound implications for understanding international relations in the Cold War and after, it sheds new light on a signal event of the twentieth century.

Sizing Up the Senate: The Unequal Consequence of Equal Representation
We take it for granted that every state has two representatives in the United States Senate. Apply the one person, one vote standard, however, and the Senate is the most malapportioned legislature in the democratic world. But does it matter that California's 32 million people have the same number of Senate votes as Wyoming's 480,000? Frances Lee and Bruce Oppenheimer systematically show that the Senate's unique apportionment scheme profoundly shapes legislation and representation. The size of a state's population affects the senator-constituent relationship, fund-raising and elections, strategic behaviour within the Senate, and, ultimately, policy decisions. They also show that less populous states consistently receive more federal funding than states with more people. In sum, Lee and Oppenheimer reveal that Senate apportionment leaves no aspect of the institution untouched. This book raises questions about one of the key institutions of American government and should be of interest to anyone concerned with issues of representation.

Migrantinnen und Migranten wurden vor allem im Rahmen der Gastarbeiterwanderung der Nachkriegszeit und der Asylzuwanderung untersucht, wobei in diesen Gruppen wenig potenzielle Unternehmensgruender und -gruenderinnen vermutet wurden. Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht diese bisher wenig beleuchtete Zugewandertengruppe. Zu diesem Zweck befragte die Autorin italienische, tuerkische, serbische und srilankesische Maenner und Frauen der ersten und zweiten Generation aus verschiedenen Sparten wie Buchhandel, Kiosk, Take-Away, Reisebuero, Kosmetik, Kampfsport und andere mehr. Anhand von Netzwerkvergleichen und biographischen Falldarstellungen wird dargelegt, welche Motive die Zugewanderten - solche mit auslaendischem Pass sowie Eingebuegerte - haben, um die selbstaendige Erwerbstaetigkeit anzustreben, welche Schwierigkeiten sie auf diesem Weg zu ueberwinden haben, und welche Hilfe sie wo und von wem einfordern koennen, um ihre unternehmerischen Ziele zu erreichen.

Flawed Capitalism
Drawing on over four decades of research and writing on the political economy of the UK and United States, David Coates offers a masterly account of the Anglo-American condition and the social and economic crisis besetting both countries. Charting the rise and fall of the social settlements that have shaped and defined the postwar years, Coates traces the history of the two economies through first their New Deal and then their Reaganite periods - ones labelled differently in the UK, but similarly marked by the development first of a Keynesian welfare state and then a Thatcherite neoliberal one. Coates exposes the failings and shortcomings of the Reagan/Thatcher years, showing how the underlying fragility of a settlement based on the weakening of organized labour and the extensive deregulation of business culminated in the financial crisis of 2008. The legacies of that crisis haunt us still - a squeezed middle class, further embedded poverty, deepened racial divisions, an adverse work-life balance for two-income families, and a growing crisis of housing and employment for the young. Flawed Capitalism deals with each in turn, and makes the case for the creation of a new transatlantic social settlement - a less flawed capitalism - one based on greater degrees of income equality and social justice. As members of the millennial generation come to their maturity on each side of the Atlantic, Flawed Capitalism offers the critical intellectual tools that they will need if they are ever to break decisively with the failed public policies of the past.
