Female Suicide Bombings - A Critical Gender Approach (Paperback): W.Andy Knight, Tanya Narozhna Female Suicide Bombings - A Critical Gender Approach (Paperback)
W.Andy Knight, Tanya Narozhna
R490 Discovery Miles 4 900 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

As media coverage of terrorism and terroristic acts has increased so too has the discussion about the identities, motives, and gender of the perpetrators. Over the past fifteen years, there have been over 150 reported suicide bombings committed by women around the world. Because of its prominence in media reporting, the phrase "female suicide bomber" has become loaded with gendered notions and assumptions that elicit preconditioned responses in the West. Female Suicide Bombings critically examines and challenges common assumptions of this loaded term. Tanya Narozhna and W. Andy Knight introduce female suicide bombings as a socio-political practice and a product of deeply politicized, gendered representations. Drawing on a combination of feminist and post-colonial approaches as well as terrorism studies literature, the authors seek to transcend ideological divisions in order to enhance our understanding of how gender, power, and academic practices influence our perceptions of female suicide bombings.

Re-mapping the Americas - Trends in Region-making (Hardcover, New Ed): W.Andy Knight, Julian Castro-Rea Re-mapping the Americas - Trends in Region-making (Hardcover, New Ed)
W.Andy Knight, Julian Castro-Rea; Edited by Hamid Ghany; Series edited by Timothy M. Shaw
R2,702 Discovery Miles 27 020 Special order

Since the end of the Second World War the map of the Americas has changed dramatically. Not only were many former European colonies turned into sovereign states, there was also an ongoing process of region-making recognizable throughout the hemisphere and obvious through the establishment of several regional agreements. The emergence of political and economic regional integration blocs is a very timely topic analyzed by scholars in many disciplines worldwide. This book looks at remapping the recent trends in region-making throughout the Americas in a way that hasn't been at the center of academic analyses so far. While examining these regionalisation tendencies with a historical background in mind, the authors also answer fundamental questions such as: What influences does globalization have on region-making, both on normative regionalism plans as well as on actual economic, political, cultural, military and social regionalization processes driven by state and non-state actors? What ideas or interests lead states in the Americas to cooperate or compete with one another and how is this power distributed? How do these regional agreements affect trade relations and have there been trade barriers set up to protect national economies? What agreements exist or have existed and how did they change with regard to contents and for what reason? The book informs academic as well as non-academic audiences about regional developments in the Americas, in particular those dating back to the last twenty years. Beyond the primary purpose of summarizing the hemisphere's recent trends, the book also brings clarification in a detailed but easy to understand way about timely issues regarding the institutionalisation, or lack thereof, of the plethora of regional and sub-regional bodies that have emerged in this hemisphere over the past couple of decades.

China and Canada in Africa - Interest, Strategies and African Perspectives (Hardcover): W.Andy Knight, Gordon Houlden China and Canada in Africa - Interest, Strategies and African Perspectives (Hardcover)
W.Andy Knight, Gordon Houlden
R2,123 Discovery Miles 21 230 Special order

Fundamental questions about the engagement of China and Canada in Africa continue to attract significant scholarly attention. This book contributes to these discussions by exploring key issues and debunking some of the myths and generalizations pertaining to the ways in which both China and Canada have engaged, and are engaging, countries on the African continent. This volume has five main objectives: 1) To introduce scholars and students of international relations (IR) and related fields to pertinent issues connected to the China-Africa-Canada nexus; 2) To advance the readers' understanding of the non-monolithic character of the actors and stakeholders operating in Canada, China and Africa; 3) To debunk myths and generalizations about China's resurgence in Africa that obscure, or lag behind, the realities and the nuances with respect to Sino-African relations; 4) To highlight positive shifts in China's engagement with Africa, while at the same time pointing out persistent asymmetries in the relationship; 5) To get beyond impressionistic, too often simplistic, outdated and dismissive images of Africa, and search for complementarities and new prospective models of cooperation between Canada and China as they engage with Africa. This volume looks at to what degree and in what way does the Canada-China engagement in Africa help to advance Canadian and Chinese interests while at the same time helping to add value in Africa's pursuit of its own goals and objectives

Towards the Dignity of Difference? - Neither 'End of History' nor 'Clash of Civilizations' (Paperback):... Towards the Dignity of Difference? - Neither 'End of History' nor 'Clash of Civilizations' (Paperback)
Mojtaba Mahdavi; Edited by W.Andy Knight
R999 Discovery Miles 9 990 Special order

The rise of popular social movements throughout the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and North America in 2011 challenged two hegemonic discourses of the post-Cold War era: Francis Fukuyama's 'The End of History' and Samuel Huntington's 'The Clash of Civilizations.' The quest for genuine democracy and social justice and the backlash against the neoliberal order is a common theme in the global mass protests in the West and the East. This is no less than a discursive paradigm shift, a new beginning to the history, a move towards new alternatives to the status quo. This book is about difference and dialogue; it embraces The Dignity of Difference and promotes dialogue. However, it also demonstrates the limits of dialogue as a useful and universal approach for resolving conflicts, particularly in cases involving asymmetric and unequal power relations. The distinguished group of authors suggests in this volume that there is a 'third way' of addressing global tensions - one that rejects the extremes of both universalism and particularism. This third way is a radical call for an epistemic shift in our understanding of 'us-other' and 'good-evil', a radical approach toward accommodating difference as well as embracing the plural concept of 'the good'. The authors strengthen their alternative approach with a practical policy guide, by challenging existing policies that either exclude or assimilate other cultures, that wage the constructed 'global war on terror,' and that impose a western neo-liberal discourse on non-western societies. This important book will be essential reading for all those studying civilizations, globalization, foreign policy, peace and security studies, multiculturalism and ethnicity, regionalism, global governance and international political economy.

The Routledge Handbook of the Responsibility to Protect (Hardcover): W.Andy Knight, Frazer Egerton The Routledge Handbook of the Responsibility to Protect (Hardcover)
W.Andy Knight, Frazer Egerton
R4,218 Discovery Miles 42 180 Special order

This Handbook offers a comprehensive examination of the Responsibility to Protect norm in world politics, which aims to end mass atrocities against civilians. The Responsibility to Protect (R2P) is amongst the most significant norms in global politics. Its aim - to end mass atrocities - could scarcely be more ambitious. Developed by the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty (ICISS) in 2001 it was rapidly, and unanimously, adopted by the United Nations in 2005 in the Outcome Document of the World Summit -- a High Level Plenary meeting of the 60th session of the UN General Assembly. That achievement dampened neither the opposition of its detractors, nor the enthusiasm and expectation of its supporters. With each atrocity, actual or potential, come appeals to the most significant policy development addressing intervention. This handbook will be the authoritative guide to the Responsibility to Protect. It gathers the most respected and insightful voices to address key issues related to this emerging norm. The chapters offer a comprehensive and coherent account of the development of the Responsibility to Protect, the issues that will likely determine the extent to which its achievements match its promise, and opinions about - and possible applications of - this norm in various regions around the world. This book will be of much interest to students of the Responsibility to Protect, humanitarian intervention, genocide, human rights, international law, international organisations, security studies and IR.
