Security, Trade And Environmental Policy : A U. S./european Union Transatlantic Agenda

RRP $601.99

The end of the 20th century finds the Atlantic Alliance partners in evolution toward a new relationship in the key policy arenas of regional and international security, international trade and competition, and the need to deal effectively with environmental and public health problems associated with an expanding global marketplace. In response to this situation, the Clinton Administration and the European Union initiated a series of efforts under the framework of a New Transatlantic Agenda'. The purpose of these efforts was to strengthen the communication and ties between the EU and the United States in a variety of functional areas. Security, Trade, and Environmental Policy: A US/European Union Transatlantic Agenda contributes to this dialogue. The volume focuses on a European and American perspective of the issues of international security, world trade, and the globalization/environmental policy interface. It includes contributions from public officials and scholars from both Europe and the United States, and as such provides valuable insights into the mind set of these individuals and their views on desirable policy directions for both Europe and the US on matters affecting international security, on the next generation of world trade policy, and on the interface between trade policy and environmental policy.


A Transatlantic History Of The Social Sciences

RRP $181.99

'This book is a prodigious achievement, the best study yet written on the remarkable academic hybridity that arose between German-speaking thinkers and the American university, especially during the first half of the twentieth century. Christian Fleck's investigation is at once a history of philanthropic foundations, a sociology of academic homelessness and institutional adaptation, and a morality tale of cooperation and rivalry told against the backdrop of economic depression, ideological fanaticism and war.' Peter Baehr, Lingnan University, Hong Kong 'By reference to the sustained and profound impact of little-known transatlantic flows of wealth and scholars, Christian Fleck charts the fascinating story of the invention of empirical social research in the twentieth century. Based upon a comprehensive command of wide-ranging data sets, this study establishes the standard for all subsequent investigation of this important theme.' Stephen Kalberg, Boston University<FROM a STRONG < traffic. one-way became this least, at world, speaking German the from that, ensured Reich Third of establishment The US. and Europe between exchange intellectual by characterised been has research scientific social century, twentieth beginning> The 20th century saw a dramatic shift of the hub of science and social science systems to the USA.

This book explores the invention of empirical social research and the contribution of German emigres to its establishment. The major names are here, from Adorno and Horkheimer to Hirshman and Lazarsfeld, but at the heart of the book is a unique collective biography based on original data from more than 800 German-speaking social scientists.


Human Ecodynamics In The North Atlantic

RRP $233.99

In Human Ecodynamics in the North Atlantic: A Collaborative Model of Humans and Nature through Space and Time, Ramona Harrison and Ruth A. Maherhave compiled a series of separate research projects conducted across the North Atlantic region that each contribute greatly to anthropological archaeology. This book assembles a regional model through which the reader is presented with a vivid and detailed image of the climatic events and cultures which have occupied these seas and lands for roughly a 5000-year period. It provides a model of adaptability, resilience, and sustainability that can be applied globally.

First, visiting the Northern Isles of Scotland in the Orkney Islands, the reader is taken through the archaeology from the Neolithic Period through World War II in the face of sea-level rise and rapidly eroding coastlines. The Shetland Islands then reveal a deep-time study of one large-scale Iron Age excavation. On to the northern coasts of Norway, where information about late medieval maritime peoples is explained. Iceland explores human-environment interaction and implications of climate change presented from the Viking Age through the Early Modern Era. Rounding out the North Atlantic Region is Greenland, which sheds light on the Norse in the late Viking Age and the Middle Ages.
