Renowned scholar Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, who set the standard for the scientific approach to international relations and transformed the field, has returned with a reformulated fifth edition based on extensive reviewer feedback and guided by an emphasis on questions about the causes and consequences of war, peace, and world order. More than ever before, the strategic perspective in international relations is examined with complete clarity, precision, and accessibility.aWhat hasnEt changed is Bueno de MesquitaEs commitment to covering the fundamentals of IR. The foundational topics and examination are all there: the major theories of war, the domestic sources of international politics, an exploration of the democratic peace, the problems of terrorism, the role of foreign aid, democratization, international political economy, globalization, international organizations, international law, and the global environment. The first part of the book, oFoundationsooffers highly accessible coverage of key concepts, introducing students to different ways to think about the national interest and showing them how to use game theory and the strategic perspective/selectorate theory to better understand what happens in all aspects of international affairs. This section uses debate over North KoreaEs nuclear weapons development as an ongoing example to build concepts and build confidence in the studentEs how of basic modeling ideas. Also covered is a basic, intuitive introduction to game theory and other evidence and logic based tools for analyzing international relations. Part II, oWar,o next provides a more thorough evaluation of how domestic political incentives and the domestic institutions of governance shape choices about conflict initiation, escalation, and termination. It also surveys major theories of war and conflict, working through hypotheses derived from constructivism, neo-realism, liberalism and selectorate theory and evaluating them against the evidence to see what actually works and what doesnEt.Chapters in Part III, oPeace,o build on the logic of collective action to help students see why it is so difficult to get national governments to do owhat is righto even when they can agree on what is right, with chapters covering the effectiveness of international organizations and international law, as well as a thorough evaluation of environmental issues, human rights enforcement and the domestic and the international political economy of trade. aPart IV, oWorld Ordero emphasizes efforts to promote the spread of democracy and economic prosperity. It also addresses how to understand and deal with terrorism. Whether examining terrorism, the spread of democracy or the alleviation of poverty, chapters in this section carefully examine which strategies work, which do not, and why. The Arab Spring provides a useful ongoing example of the strengths and weaknesses of foreign aid policy and military intervention policies. No other introductory text delivers such an easily-understood contemporary explanation of international politics, while truly enabling students to learn how to mobilize the key concepts and models themselvesA'thus develop a new method for thinking about world affairs. More than ever before, Principles provides a comprehensive evaluation of all aspects of international affairs, systematically compares the accuracy of competing approaches to international relations, and walks students through the simple, intuitive models and games that capture the essence of the strategic, selectorate viewpoint.

Introduction to Comparative Politics Houghton Mifflin Company
Written by a distinguished group of comparativists, this innovative and accessible introductory text surveys 12 key countries organized according to their level of political development: established democracies, transitional democracies, and non-democracies. The country studies illuminate four comparative themes in a global context: the world of states, examining the interaction of states within the international order; governing the economy, covering the role of the state in economic management; the democratic idea, discussing the pressure for more democracy and the challenges of democratization; and the politics of collective identities, studying the political impact of diverse attachments and sources of group identity. The theoretical framework developed in an expanded introduction provides a rich context for each country study, and clear prose makes the book accessible to students with little or no background in political science. Students will also benefit from the data sheet at the beginning of each chapter that includes basic demographic, socioeconomic, and political information, to aid in country comparisons. In addition, they can use the Geographic Setting sections in each chapter, as well as maps, tables, charts, photographs, and political cartoons to further their understanding of each country studied. New! All 12 country studies, as well as two additional studies, are available in an online database. Instructors may choose from among these chapters (a minimum of 7) to create a customized text. East-Central Europe and South Africa will be available for Fall 2003 classes, and two new countries will be added every year. New! The chapter on the United States has been broadened in response to reviewer comments. New! Expanded coverage throughout includes a focus on the political and military aspects of globalization in the post-September 11 world. New! Recently added information includes the effects of ethnic, nationalist, and religious divisions. Complete updates include discussion of political events, elections, and other circumstances that influence change. Key terms appear as bold in the text and a glossary at the end defines key concepts in comparative politics. In addition, an appendix explains the Human Development Index
A Short Introduction to Micro-and Macroeconomics Uniwersytet Opolski
The part about microeconomics focuses on the problem of choice, the working of the market, the theory of the firm, the role of the government in case the market does not a proper job and the problem of reduced competition e.g. in case of monopoly. Much space is devoted to institutions and transaction costs. This topic is relevant for analysing the the working of markets, organisations and other types of systems used for production and trade or for analysing the influence of e.g. laws and regulations on economic activity. This part integrates economics with sociology, political and legal sciences. The part about macroeconomics focuses on issues related to national income and the banking system. What is national income? What causes national income to increase? What is the function of the central bank and the government in the development of the economy? What is the effect of ?printing money?? Does economic growth mean that everyone has a ?better life?? The book may be of interest for students of economics, history, political science, sociology, law, geography, etc. in order to obtain a quick introduction to micro- and macroeconomics in English. Na podręcznik pt. Krótki wstęp do mikro i makroekonomii składają się dwie części. Część dotycząca mikroekonomii koncentruje się na problemie wyboru, mechanizmie działania rynku, teorii przedsiębiorstwa, roli rządu w przypadku, gdy rynek nie funkcjonuje w sposób właściwy, oraz na kwestii ograniczonej konkurencyjności, np. w przypadku monopolu. Sporo miejsca poświęcone zostało instytucjom i kosztom dokonywania transakcji. Temat ten jest istotny dla dokonania analiz sposobu działania rynku, organizacji oraz innych typów systemów wykorzystywanych w produkcji i handlu, lub do analizy wpływu, np. prawa i regulacji prawnych na działalność gospodarczą. Część ta łączy ekonomię z socjologią, naukami politycznymi i prawniczymi. Część odnosząca się do makroekonomii skupia się na sprawach związanych z dochodem i systemem bankowości. Co to jest dochód narodowy? Co wpływa na jego wzrost? Jaką funkcję pełni bank centralny oraz rząd w rozwoju gospodarki? Jaki jest efekt ?drukowania pieniędzy?? Czy wzrost gospodarczy oznacza, że wszystkim ?żyje się lepiej?? Książka jest adresowana do studentów ekonomii, historii, nauk politycznych, socjologii, prawa, geografii, itp. (i nauk pokrewnych?), którzy otrzymują krótkie wprowadzenie do tematyki mikro- i makroekonomii w języku angielskim. Spis treści: Introduction MICROECONOMICS Chapter 1 - What is economics about? 1.1.

An Introduction to International Political Economy Susan Strange, formerly University of Warwick. Professor Strange was well known for her unorthodox and stimulating views on the international political economy. Here she provides the student and scholar with a new model synthesising politics and economics by means of a four-faceted structural analysis of the effects of any kind of political authority (including states) on markets, and, conversely, of market forces on states. This refreshingly new framework of analysis is an ideal introductory text.
Brazil's Modern Architecture_Andreolli Elisabetta, Forty Adrian Wydawnictwo: Phaidon

Brazil's Modern Architecture ISBN: 9780714842929 Autor: Andreolli Elisabetta, Forty Adrian Rok wydania: 2004-11-15 Ilość stron: 240 Oprawa: twarda Format: 294 x 260 mm This is the most comprehensive survey and analysis of twentieth-century Brazilian Architecture, written by Brazilian architects and writers for an international audience. Its key events and buildings appear not in a conventional chronological account but within a series of thematic chapters (critical reception, construction issues, urbanism, typological description of the modern house, affordable housing and new fields of practice, survey of recent works). It is a history of Brazilian modern architecture retold with a Brazilian voice by the new generation of critics and historians. This book offers a fresh reading of the well-known era of high-modernism of the 1930s-1960s placing it within both the context of architecture before and since and the broader changes taking place in Brazilian culture at the time. It also charts post-Brasilia developments, including contemporary projects, showing how architects have adapted to the contradictions of an increasingly polarised society and the relevance of Brazilian architecture for current debates around issues such as large-scale urban growth and the tension between local identities and global civilisation. Covering around 200 projects, it is extensively illustrated with both historical black and white photographs and new colour photographs and drawings In cultural terms, Brazil is famous for its music and its architecture. As the largest and richest country in Latin America, Brazil is set apart from the others by its language, and by the ethnic diversity of its population, all of which contribute to its cultural distinctiveness. Yet, the architecture of twentieth-century Brazil is all too often represented by the work of one man (Oscar Niemeyer) or by two cities (Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo). This book is a study of Brazilian architecture in the twentieth-century, from the first modern houses of the 1920s and Le Corbusier's seminal visits to the country, through the well-known 'heroic' period of the 1940s-1950s and its crisis post-1964 up to contemporary developments. The high-modernist era coincided with the period of Brazil's most rapid economic growth around the middle of the century, when the country was transformed from a predominantly agricultural economy with coffee as its principal export, into an urbanised society with an industrial economy that saw the creation of Brasilia, one of the most utopian projects of the Modern Movement. Towards the end of this period, as society became increasingly polarised between a prosperous middle class and a very poor underclass, architects also became more pre-occupied with the nature of public buildings and the problems linked to accelerated urban growth. What has usually been seen as a period of creative experimentation in architecture underwent a crisis with the advent of the military dictatorship in 1964, while the rapid growth of the economy was sustained and even increased, with the consequent rise in activity of the building industry until the 1980s, one of the inherent contradictions of Brazil that this book seeks to address. While conventional accounts treat 1964 as the end of Brazilian architecture, this was not the case. Brazilian architects adapted to the changed circumstances, and developed new strategies that were no less creative, but sometimes less demonstrative. This has been particularly so since the restoration of democracy in the early 1980s, and again, a major theme of the book is to show continuities between the more recent work and that of the high-modernist era of the mid-century. The book will be edited by Elisabetta Andreoli and Adrian Forty, who will frame the main chapters with the introduction and a foreword to the survey of recent works. Five Brazilian writers will contribute essays to the body of the book that, together, provide a thorough study of modernist architecture and beyond in Brazil, and examine the works from the 'inside', explaining the social, cultural and political context that is so crucial to understanding the architecture.

The study aims at demonstrating the core principles to be implemented for protected transactions in developing and transitional countries to trigger economic development. Two approaches are discussed which claim having demonstrated that the institution of property is the most important source of economic activity: (i) the theory of property rights or new institutional economics and (ii) the property theory of the economy or property economics. Both schools, and (iii) reform programs of multilateral institutions based on the schools? approaches, are analyzed from the viewpoint of the dichotomy between property and possession.§Contents§Abstract§Directory§Introduction§Part I: The theory of property rights or new institutional economics§The fundamentals of new institutional economics§The "naive" theory of the emergence of private property rights: Armen A.

Governing the Market Princeton University Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Published originally in 1990 to critical acclaim, Robert Wade's "Governing the Market" quickly established itself as a standard in contemporary political economy. In it, Wade challenged claims both of those who saw the East Asian story as a vindication of free market principles and of those who attributed the success of Taiwan and other countries to government intervention. Instead, Wade turned attention to the way allocation decisions were divided between markets and public administration and the synergy between them. Now, in a new introduction to this paperback edition, Wade reviews the debate about industrial policy in East and Southeast Asia and chronicles the changing fortunes of these economies over the 1990s. He extends the original argument to explain the boom of the first half of the decade and the crash of the second, stressing the links between corporations, banks, governments, international capital markets, and the International Monetary Fund. From this, Wade goes on to outline a new agenda for national and international development policy.
