About this Item: Polity Press, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The notion of empire has in recent years taken on a renewed importance in world politics. US foreign policy has in particular been associated with this concept by both critics and supporters of American global power. But what exactly is an empire? What distinguishes different forms of empire? Is this category still useful in a post-colonial world? These and other related questions are addressed in this historically informed conceptual introduction to the idea of empire. Alejandro Colas draws on interdisciplinary debates surrounding this disputed notion and offers a survey of different imperial experiences across time and place. Successive chapters consider the imperial organization of political space, the role of markets in sustaining imperial rule and the contradictory expressions of imperial culture. Colas argues that in each of these arenas we can establish differences among empires but also contrast imperial polities to other forms of political rule. In addition he suggests that the experiences and legacies of empire are key to an understanding of the world today, including forms of global governance and experiments in nation-building. Using wide-ranging examples, the book discusses some of the major theories of empire and imperialism in an accessible and engaging way. Above all, the text aims to bring the concept of empire alive to those concerned with contemporary world politics and society. It will be of great interest to those studying and teaching world history, international relations, comparative politics or global sociology. Seller Inventory # AAH9780745632520

About this Item: Polity Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Since the end of the Cold War, activists and scholars alike have celebrated the phenomenal growth of transnational social movements across the globe. For some, this new eruption of grass--roots political activism on a world scale -- from the Rio Earth Summit to the Seattle anti--globalization protests -- represents the emergence of a global or transnational civil society. This book provides a critical survey of recent approaches to the study of civil society and international relations, presenting an alternative historical and sociological account of the interaction between these two spheres. It makes a theoretical case for the importance of social movements in world politics arguing that modern social movements emerging out of civil society have been instrumental in shaping the contemporary international system. In this wide--ranging engagement with past and present controversies in international relations, Colas shows how a renewed conception of international civil society can illuminate future possibilities for international social movement activity. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of international relations, political sociology and social history, as well as those who seek to play a part in global politics.

About this Item: Ed. Alianza, 2009. soft. Condition: New. La noción de imperio ha cobrado una importancia renovada en años recientes. La política de Estados Unidos en particular ha sido asociada con este concepto tanto por sus críticos como por sus partidarios. Pero ¿qué es exactamente un imperio? ¿Qué distingue a los distintos tipos de imperio? ¿Sigue teniendo utilidad esta categoría en un mundo postcolonial? Apoyándose en enfoques interdisciplinares, Colás examina las distintas experiencias imperiales a lo largo del tiempo. En sucesivos capítulos aborda la organización imperial del espacio político, el papel de los mercados para sostener el gobierno imperial y las contradictorias expresiones de la cultura imperial, y muestra las diferencias existentes entre los imperios en cada uno de esos ámbitos. Por último también contrasta las políticas imperiales con otras formas de dominio político, así como las distintas teorías sobre el imperio y el imperialismo. *** Nota: EL COSTE DE ENVÍO A CANARIAS ES 9.99 EUROS.
