The Book The Oxford Handbook of International Relations

Genre Political Science

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The Oxford Handbook of International Relations offers the most authoritative and comprehensive overview to date of the field of International Relations. The Handbook debates the nature of the field itself, critically engages with the major theories, surveys a wide spectrum of methods, addresses the relationship between scholarship and policy making, and examines the field's relation with cognate disciplines. In so doing the Handbook gives readers authoritative and critical introductions to the subject and establish a sense of the field as a dynamic realm of argument and inquiry. The Handbook has two key and distinctive organizing principles. The first is its ground-breaking approach to the normative component in theorizing about International Relations. Earlier volumes have concentrated almost exclusively on theories as purely empirical or positive theories, with small sub-sections left for 'ethics and International Relations'. But all International Relations theories have both empirical and normative aspects; even methodological choices entail implicit normative commitments. Without this understanding, some of the arguments in International Relations are routinely miscast. The Oxford Handbook of International Relations offers a comprehensive survey of the field that deepens our understanding of how empirical and normative theorizing interact to constitute International Relations as a field of study. A second organizing principle is the analysis of how different perspectives have developed in relation to one another. Previous overviews of the field have treated contending theories and methods as isolated bodies of thought, or organized them into stylized 'great debates'. But these approaches obscure the dynamic interplay, conversation, and contestation between different perspectives. The Handbook examines this interplay, with chapter authors probing how their theory or approach has been affected by contestation with, and borrowing from, other approaches. In doing so it shows how diversity within International Relations has promoted, or perhaps sometimes stultified, progress in the field. The Oxford Handbook of International Relations advances a markedly different perspective on the field of International Relations and will be essential for reading for those interested in the advanced study of global politics and international affairs.

READING: Hoe extreem Trump ook is, hij is een logisch voortvloeisel uit de meest kwalijke trends van de voorbije vijf decennia. Dat is wat Naomi Klein betoogt in Nee is niet genoeg. Ze laat zien welke kwaadaardige krachten schuilen achter Trumps opkomst, en poneert een activerende visie die een massabeweging in staat stelt in te gaan tegen opkomend militarisme, racisme en een toenemende privatisering van de overheid, zowel in de Verenigde Staten als in de rest van de wereld.

The Book De zeloot
The Author Reza Aslan
The Publisher Uitgeverij Balans
Release Date2014-03-15
Genre Religion
ISBN 9789460037375
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Tweeduizend jaar geleden verzamelde een rondtrekkende Joodse prediker en wonderdoener volgelingen om zich heen om het 'koninkrijk van God' te vestigen. De revolutionaire beweging die ontstond was zon grote bedreiging voor de bestaande orde dat de man werd gearresteerd, gemarteld en als staatsvijand geëxecuteerd. Kort na zijn vernederende dood zouden zijn volgelingen hem God noemen. In De zeloot neemt Reza Aslan eeuwen van mythevorming onder de loep en werpt hij nieuw licht op een van de invloedrijkste personen in de geschiedenis. Aslan zet de Jezus van de evangeliën af tegen de historische bronnen en beschrijft een man vol overtuiging en hartstocht, maar ook een vat vol tegenstellingen. Het resultaat is een even diepzinnig als elegant portret van een man, een tijd en de geboorte van een godsdienst.

READING: How do we understand international relations in a globalized world? This clear and concise text takes as its starting point the theoretical frameworks that are the foundation of current IR.

Her levels-of-analysis approach provides students with the basic tools for a more inclusive understanding of international politics by not forcing them to choose between competing theories. Instead, in a refreshing alternative to most of the current introductory-level texts, the book allows readers to view the globe as a complex place of multiple actors facing multiple issues. It concludes with cases of current events that will help students apply theories to real-world issues.

The Book Waarom sommige landen rijk zijn en andere arm
The Author Daron Acemoglu
The Publisher Nieuw Amsterdam
Release Date2012-11-02
Genre History
ISBN 9789046813737
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Het is een van de grote wereldvraagstukken: waarom zijn sommige landen rijk en andere arm? Ligt de verklaring in culturele verschillen, het klimaat of geografische omstandigheden? Of is er een andere oorzaak? Waarom is bijvoorbeeld Botswana een van de snelst groeiende economieën ter wereld en blijven andere Afrikaanse landen, zoals Zimbabwe en Congo, ondergedompeld in geweld en armoede? Daron Acemoglu en James Robinson laten overtuigend zien dat het de politieke en economische instituties zijn die het economische succes of falen van een land bepalen; instituties die innovatie en economische groei stimuleren en welvaart en vrede garanderen. De auteurs illustreren hun betoog met tal van fascinerende voorbeelden. Eén daarvan is Korea, een in wezen homogene staat. In Zuid-Korea legt de overheid verantwoording af aan de burgers en heeft de bevolking volop economische kansen; het land is zeer welvarend. Noord-Korea wordt dictatoriaal geregeerd en kent al tientallen jaren onderdrukking en hongersnood. Op basis van vijftien jaar veldonderzoek en historische research hebben de auteurs een nieuwe, overtuigende politiek-economische theorie geformuleerd. Waarom sommige landen rijk zijn en andere arm laat ons met andere ogen naar de wereld kijken en geeft een dieper inzicht in de oorzaken van armoede en rijkdom. Daron Acemoglu is hoogleraar economie aan het MIT. Hij ontving de John Bates Clark Medal. Degenen die deze onderscheiding krijgen, worden beschouwd als belangrijke kanshebbers voor de Nobelprijs. James Robinson is politiek wetenschapper en econoom. Hij is hoogleraar aan Harvard University en een wereldberoemde Latijns-Amerikaen Afrikadeskundige. `Acemoglu en Robinson hebben een boeiend en zeer lezenswaardig boek geschreven.' Niall Ferguson `In Why Nations Fail staan zo veel goede dingen, dat ik onmogelijk alles kan opnoemen.' Charles C. Mann `Acemoglu en Robinson hebben een belangrijk boek geschreven, dat het verdient te worden gelezen door politici en economen waar ook ter wereld.' Het Financieele Dagblad `Waarschijnlijk leest u net als ik dit boek in één keer uit en neemt u het daarna nog vaak ter hand.' Jared Diamond, auteur van Zwaarden, paarden & ziektekiemen

Genre Science
ISBN 9789046811313
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Beantwoordt alle vragen over wie we zijn en waar we vandaan komen In dit baanbrekende boek tracht Chris Stringer antwoord te geven op de grote vragen in het debat over onze oorsprong. Hebben moderne mensen en neanderthalers elkaar ooit ontmoet en stroomt er misschien zelfs neanderthalerbloed door onze aderen? Waren onze voorouders vervaarlijke kannibalen of bewerkten ze de overblijfselen van hun doden uit eerbetoon? Waren grotschilderingen en gestileerde voorwerpen puur functioneel of waren de makers ervan de eerste kunstliefhebbers? Stringer leidt de lezer langs een geschiedenis vol felle debatten over de oorsprong van de mensheid. Hij belicht de factoren die vermoedelijk tot de evolutie van de moderne mens leidden, maar die mogelijk ook ten grondslag lagen aan het verdwijnen van andere mensensoorten. Zijn betoog werpt een nieuw licht op wat het betekent om mens te zijn. Chris Stringer is als hoogleraar verbonden aan het Natural History Museum in Londen. Hij is een van de meest vooraanstaande onderzoekers op het gebied van de oorsprong van de mens en geeft leiding aan het Ancient Human Occupation of Britain Project, dat tot doel heeft gedetailleerd in kaart te brengen hoe en wanneer Groot-Brittannië door vroege mensen werd gekoloniseerd. 'Overlevers wordt gezien als het definitieve handboek voor het grootste debat aller tijden: wie zijn we en waar komen we vandaan?' The Guardian 'Het boek combineert de spanning van een roman met de kwaliteiten van een opmerkelijk verhelderend betoog. In het boek ontvouwt zich een panorama van de nieuwste wetenschappelijke inzichten.' Nature 'Overlevers begint als een helder en scherpzinnig onderzoek. Het boek eindigt met het introduceren van een nieuwe wijze waarop wij onszelf en onze plaats in de geschiedenis kunnen definiëren.' Sunday Times
