Kingsbury., D (2007) Political development, Abingdon;New York,Routledge.

The chapters included in this book are: democracy, institutional-building, the state, state failure, nation, human rights and political violence.

Political Development provides new insights into political development and this book can be used as a comprehensive text on advanced undergraduate and postgraduate courses in international development, comparative politics, political theory and international relations.


Federalism in Asia
Baogang He, Brian Galligan, Takeshi Inoguchi (eds). 2007, Federalism in Asia . Cheltenham, UK: Edward Elgar.

Explores the range of theoretical perspectives that shape debates over federalism in general, and over territorial,
multinational, hybrid, and asymmetric federalism in particular relation to Asia. This book is suitable for scholars and
researchers who work on issues of federalism, political economy, public policy, and ethnic relations. The contributors share their understanding of how federal or quasi-federal institutions manage ethnic confl icts and accommodate differences, how democratization facilitates the development of federalism and how federalism facilitates or inhibits democratization in Asia.

Rural democracy in China : the role of the village elections
Baogang He, 2007. New York: Palgrave Macmillan.

This book examines the status of village democracy, studies the achievements and the problems, explains its dynamics,
and investigates the prospects of China’s democratization. It challenges the skeptics with a nuanced assessment of village
democracy in its variety and diversity. It develops an understanding of how three key factors – township, economy and kinship— shape village democracy and account for the variations of rural democracy. The extension of village to township elections has been examined and an idea of mixed regime being formulated with an examination of its key features and implications for our understanding of political development in China.

Vientiane: Transformations of a Lao Landscape
Askew,M., W., Logan and C.,Long (2007), Routledge, London, pp.288.

Book cover - Vientiane: Transformations of a Lao Landscape Providing insights into this neglected Southeast Asian city, this interesting book interprets Vientiane’s landscape - physical as well as imagined - as a reflection of key aspects of Lao geo-political history, the nature of Lao urbanism, and its critical relation to constructions of Lao identity in the contemporary period. It is argued that the patterns of change seen through Vientiane’s past embody the key political and economic processes and transformations impacting on the people of Laos. The Lao urban past has rarely been an object of attention by scholars. Laos, in fact, is continually portrayed as a rural backwater, marginal to the dynamic trends affecting most of the Southeast Asian mainland. In contrast to these persistent and static portrayals of Laos as a tiny landlocked backwater, with no significant urban present or past, the authors aim to document, explain and evaluate the significance of the Lao urban landscape. Focusing on the theme of Vientiane’s ‘marginality’ in its various forms, the book interprets this apparent marginality as an historically-produced phenomenon resulting from geo-politics dating from the pre-colonial period and extending into the post-colonial period. Drawing on a wide range of research materials, Vientiane is the first work of its kind on this ignored city.

East Timor: Beyond Independence
Kingsbury, D. and M., Leach (eds)(2007) Monash Univeristy Press, pp.320.

Book cover - East Timor: Beyond Independence This is the most comprehensive study of East Timor since independence, examining the major themes of development, borders and security, politics and justice, resource and land management, education, and language policy. Though the country was initially lauded as a case study in successful state-building, the crisis of 2006 demonstrated that East Timor had more in common with other post-colonial, post-conflict societies than some of these earlier optimistic assessments suggested. East Timor continues to attract the interest and attention of governments, scholars, development institutions and aid workers as a society rebuilding itself after almost a quarter of a century of profound trauma, and consecutive eras of colonialism. Covering the era from the independence referendum in August 1999 to the political crisis in 2006, and future prospects and challenges, this book is an invaluable resource for understanding the challenges facing the first new nation of the 21st century.

Class Act: Melbourne Workers Theatre 1987-2007
D’Cruz, G. (2007).(ed). Vulgar Press, Melbourne.

Book cover - Class Act: Melbourne Workers Theatre 1987-2007 With a few notable exceptions, middle-class themes and middle-class personnel dominate professional theatre in Australia. Melbourne Workers Theatre (MWT), which celebrates its twentieth anniversary in 2007, has redressed this imbalance by creating high quality theatre that represents the lives of the most disadvantaged members of our community. In short, the company has made a major contribution to Australian theatre culture by giving voice to marginalised Melburnians including people from impoverished backgrounds, indigenous communities, various migrant groups and persecuted minorities like asylum seekers. Class Act celebrates the Company’s artistic achievements and successes over the last two decades through interviews, essays and high quality images of key productions. It recounts its history, its evolving relationship with the embattled trade union movement, and its on-going engagement with working class, indigenous and migrant communities. Class Act is more than a history of a theatre company. It documents a particularly turbulent period in Melbourne’s history that witnessed consistent attacks on trade unions, asylum seekers, aboriginal and working class people by state and federal governments, and the forces of globalisation. In an era when the very concept of ‘class’ has been discredited, Melbourne Workers Theatre remains committed to principles of social justice and revels in using theatre as a form of political activism and protest.

Expectations and Experiences: Children, Childhood and Children’s Literature
Bradford, C. and V. Coghlan (eds)(2007)Pied Piper Press, Lichfield, UK.

Globalisation and Citizenship: The Transnational Challenge.
Slaughter S and W Hudson (eds.) (2007). Routledge, London.

Book cover - Globalisation and Citizenship: The Transnational Challenge. This wide-ranging volume explores the impact of globalisation upon citizenship, with a special focus on the transnational challenges that globalisation poses. While there is much debate over the concept, globalisation implies at least two distinct phenomena. First, it suggests that political, economic and social activities are becoming increasingly inter-regional or intercontinental in scope. Secondly, it suggests that there has been an intensification of levels of interaction and interconnectedness between states and societies. Citizenship, as one of the foundational concepts of the modern liberal democratic states, provides the normative framework within which globalisation debates may be understood and evaluated. It also examines how different concepts, theories and practices of citizenship are evolving in response to globalisation. Central questions explored in this text are:

• How does globalisation challenge traditional conceptions of citizenship in specific respects?
• How is globalisation creating new citizenships or new civil society spaces?
• How is transnational citizenship developing and what problems are associated with it in specific areas?

Discussing the theoretical and practical prospects for new forms of liberal, republican and cosmopolitan citizenship, Globalisation and Citizenship will appeal to students and scholars in the fields of international relations, globalisation, sociology and political science.

Islam and Political Violence: Muslim Diaspora and Radicalism in the West
Akbarzadeh, S. and F., Mansouri (eds)(2007) Library of International Relations, vol.34, Tauris Academic Studies/Palgrave Macmillan (London/ New York)

Book cover - Islam and Political Violence: Muslim Diaspora and Radicalism in the West How do we engage with the pressing challenges of xenophobia, radicalism and security in the age of the ‘war on terror’? The widely felt sense of insecurity in the West is shared by Muslims both within and outside Western societies. Growing Islamic militancy and resulting increased security measures by Western powers have contributed to a pervasive sense among Muslims of being under attack (both physically and culturally). Islam and Political Violence brings together the current debate on the uneasy and potentially mutually destructive relationship between the Muslim world and the West and argues we are on a dangerous trajectory, strengthening dichotomous notions of the divide between the West and the Muslim world.
