R. Mason, “The International Politics of the Arab Spring: Popular Unrest and Foreign Policy”

English | 2014 | ISBN: 1349502928 | PDF | pages: 215 | 2.3 mb
This book explores and analyzes how the Arab Spring has affected the political and economic relationships between the West, the BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) and the MENA (Middle Eastern and North African states). It locates continuity and change in these relations within the broader context of democratization, energy, security, arms relationships, and the shift towards a multi-polar system. Each chapter charts a history of ideological engagement, which has generally given way to more pragmatic energy, economic, and security interests, and defines and analyzes the fundamental and emerging factors that shape foreign policy. The volume pays special attention to the UN Security Council authorization of “all necessary measures” against Qaddafi’s Libya and the subsequent deadlock in getting China and Russia to pass further Resolutions for intervention in Syria.

A. Risley, “Civil Society Organizations, Advocacy, and Policy Making in Latin American Democracies: Pathways to Participation”

English | 2015 | ISBN: 1137506547 | PDF | pages: 216 | 4.1 mb
What explains civil society participation in policy making in Latin American democracies? Risley comparatively analyzes actors who have advocated for children’s rights, the environment, and freedom of information in Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay. Successful issue framing and effective alliance building are identified as ‘pathways’ to participation.

Girls and Women in Classical Greek Religion by Matthew Dillon

English | July 20th, 2003 | ISBN: 0415202728 | 447 pages | PDF | 14.14 MB
It has often been thought that participation in fertility rituals was women’s most important religious activity in classical Greece. Matthew Dillon’s wide-ranging study makes it clear that women engaged in numerous other rites and cults, and that their role in Greek religion was actually more important than that of men.
Women invoked the gods’ help in becoming pregnant, venerated the god of wine, worshipped new and exotic deities, used magic for both erotic and pain-relieving purposes, and far more besides.
Clear and comprehensive, this volume challenges many stereotypes of Greek women and offers unexpected insights into their experience of religion. With more than fifty illustrations, and translated extracts from contemporary texts, this is an essential resource for the study of women and religion in classical Greece.
