Power in Struggle
10,57 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Those seeking social change confront the centrality of power on a daily basis. What precisely is power and how does it manifest itself? And how are radical and progressive strategies shaped by the ways in which we conceptualize it? Drawing on feminist, poststructuralist, and Marxist theory, Davina Cooper develops an innovative framework for understanding power relations in fora as diverse as reproductive technology, queer activism, municipal politics, and the regulation of lesbian reproduction. Power in Struggle explores the relationship between power, sexuality, and the state and ultimately provides a radical re-thinking of these concepts and their interactions. Sexual politics, Cooper posits, must recognize the sexualization of everyday life. And sex should be neither exclusively the concern of a young, educated elite, nor shuttered as a private affair. Concluding with an important and original discussion of how an ethics of empowerment can inform political strategy, Power in Struggle is a must-read for activists, scholars, and lawyers interested in understanding the role of power in the state.

Chinese Economic Statecraft
21,09 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In Chinese Economic Statecraft, William J. Norris introduces an innovative theory that pinpoints how states employ economic tools of national power to pursue their strategic objectives. Norris shows what Chinese economic statecraft is, how it works, and why it is more or less effective. Norris provides an accessible tool kit to help us better understand important economic developments in the People's Republic of China. He links domestic Chinese political economy with the international ramifications of China's economic power as a tool for realizing China's strategic foreign policy interests. He presents a novel approach to studying economic statecraft that calls attention to the central challenge of how the state is (or is not) able to control and direct the behavior of economic actors. Norris identifies key causes of Chinese state control through tightly structured, substate and crossnational comparisons of business-government relations. These cases range across three important arenas of China's grand strategy that prominently feature a strategic role for economics: China's efforts to secure access to vital raw materials located abroad, Mainland relations toward Taiwan, and China's sovereign wealth funds. Norris spent more than two years conducting field research in China and Taiwan during which he interviewed current and former government officials, academics, bankers, journalists, advisors, lawyers, and businesspeople. The ideas in this book are applicable beyond China and help us to understand how states exercise international economic power in the twenty-first century.

Kleptopia
13,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Based on scores of interviews and backed up by thousands of pages of documentation, Kleptopia is the riveting story of capitalism's Monster - a global kleptocracy - and how this masquerades as legitimate authority, concealing its true purpose: the pillage of power.The ascent of the first US president to fuse his business interests with the highest office in the free world means that the three great poles of power today - Washington, Moscow and Beijing - are controlled by regimes that could justifiably be called kleptocratic. We will follow four narratives that take us into the underbelly of the global economy. Each follows a character: a subversive British banker, a well-connected Brooklyn gangster, a liberal lawyer from Toronto and an obscure Central Asian fellow who became one of the richest men alive in very short order. All of them struggle to know how to live in a world where little is as it seems, violence is always terrifyingly close and there are no simple moral choices. Along the way, they encounter crooks and killers, spies and propagandists, captains of industry, heads of state and bystanders whose lives are shattered by the defining power struggle of the new century. We meet the ersatz capitalists who turned the KGB into a business and the charming wheeler-dealer who kept Robert Mugabe in power. We descend into prisons and torture-chambers and witness a day of bloodshed on the steppe.Tom Burgis has spent fifteen years reporting from five continents on conflict, corruption, globalisation and organised crime. Kleptopia will reveal alarming new information about the secret networks that fuse political power, organised crime and grand corruption. More troubling still, it will show how those who have established control over lawless lands have learned, with the energetic assistance of well-rewarded lawyers, accountants and lobbyists, to translate that power into access and influence in the remaining democracies. While we look the other way, much that we hold most precious is being stolen. Kleptopia will force us to rethink how we understand the workings of international power today.
