Great Power Conduct and Credibility in World Politics By Sergey Smolnikov
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 316 Pages | ISBN : 3319718843 | 3.39 MB

This book seeks to answer one main question: what is the core concern of great powers that streamlines their behavior in the contemporary system of international relations? Building on the examples of the United States, China, Russia, France, and Britain, it tracks both consistency and fluctuations in global power dynamics and great power behavior. The author examines the genesis, causality, and policy implications of decision makers’ fixation with retaining a credible image of power in world politics, while exploring how the dynamics of power distribution in international systems modify perceptions of primacy.

British and American Representations of 9/11: Literature, Politics and the Media

British and American Representations of 9/11: Literature, Politics and the Media By Oana-Celia Gheorghiu
English | EPUB | 2018 | 274 Pages | ISBN : 3319752499 | 1.11 MB

This book argues that twenty-first-century neorealist fiction is inspired by political and journalistic discourses and, along with them, constitutes one of the many representations of the attacks on September 11 and their outcomes. Adopting a neorealist stance, this book is placed at the intersection of realism and fiction, with often reference to what is perceived as objective writing (media and political texts), not at all so divorced from the practice of literary writings on the event that shook the world on September 11, 2001.
