Book Description:
This book engages with the Chinese mediation of wars and conflicts in the global environment.Proposing a new cascading media and conflict model, it applies this to the studyof war correspondents from six levels: media-policy relations, journalistic objectivity, roleperceptions, news framing and peace/war journalism, news practices, and audience. Based on interviews with 23 Chinese journalists and case study analysis of the Libyan War,Syrian War, Afghanistan War and Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the book demonstrates thata new breed of Chinese war correspondents has emerged today. They undergo a complexand nuanced mediated communication process. Neither traditionally Chinese in theirapproach nor western in their perceptions, they are uniquely pragmatic in negotiating theirroles in a complex web of internal and external actors and factors. The core ideology seemsto be anti-West in defiance of the US hegemony and the bias of global media as well asneutral-Muslims. Exploring the role perceptions, values, norms and practices of contemporary Chinese warcorrespondents who go outside China to bring the ‘distant culture’ back home, this text is keyreading for scholars and students in international journalism, international communication,war and peace studies, international relations and Chinese studies.

Book Description:
Mit Richard Rorty verstarb im Sommer 2007 einer der einflußreichsten Intellektuellen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Spätestens seit seiner aufsehenerregenden Demontage des cartesianischen Selbstverständnisses der Philosophie in "Der Spiegel der Natur" gehörte er zu den meistgelesenen Philosophen weltweit, der auch aufgrund seiner politischen Interventionen Bekanntheit erlangte. Heidegger, Wittgenstein und vor allem John Dewey waren seine Gewährsmänner, deren Einsichten er mit analytischer Brillanz für die Gegenwart fruchtbar machte. Romantische Ironie und weltbürgerliche Solidarität galten ihm mehr als philosophische Besserwisserei. Philosophie - das war für Rorty kein akademisches Fach, exklusiv zuständig für die "ersten Fragen", sondern vielmehr eine Stimme unter vielen im großen zivilisatorischen Gespräch der Menschheit. Philosophie als Kulturpolitik, der letzte von Rorty selbst zusammengestellte Band mit zum Teil bislang unveröffentlichten Essays, kann als sein Vermächtnis gelesen werden: Religion und Moralphilosophie, Wittgenstein und Kant, Naturalismus, romantischer Polytheismus und immer wieder die analytische Philosophie und ihre "Heilung" durch den Pragmatismus sind die scheinbar disparaten Themen, die gleichwohl durch ein starkes Band zusammengehalten werden, nämlich die Frage nach der Rolle der Philosophie in der westlichen Kultur, genauer: Wie muß man philosophieren, um als Philosoph einen sinnvollen Beitrag zur menschlichen Kultur leisten zu können? Rortys Antwort: Man muß sich entscheiden, und zwar gegen den Elfenbeinturm und für den kulturellen Wandel durch das Gespräch - mit den Naturwissenschaften, der Kunst, der Literatur, der Religion und der Politik.

Book Description:
Singapore might not have survived the 1960s and prospered thereafter had it not built its economy on the foundations of oil refining, trading and support for oil and gas exploration and production. Cheap oil, sound policies and strong government combined to produce the Singapore economic miracle in its first 50 years of self-rule/independence. With the end of cheap oil, how will Singapore fare and what is the relevance of its model of development for other countries? Singapore’s successful launch coincided with a golden period of cheap energy, and a pro-globalization and free trade environment. These three elements are now under threat from rising energy prices and the global financial crisis which started in 2007 that will leave a lasting impact on the world's political and economic landscape. If the Singapore model is reaching or has reached its peak, what could take its place? This book poses questions for not just for Singapore planners, but also for anyone interested in modern economics and trade beyond the current era. The book also looks into the numerous subsectors within Singapore’s broad energy sector and examines the energy sector’s links with the other pillars of its economy: trade, financial, offshore/marine operations, manufacturing and transportation. It considers possible threats and challenges: Singapore’s rising energy intensity, its vulnerability to energy supply cut-offs, the likely impact of peak oil, terrorism and environmental / climate issues. It also looks at China’s growing investment and role in Singapore’s oil and gas industry. The book is a must-read for an excellent insight into Singapore’s energy economy, filled with data, information, interviews and analyses previously not available to the public.

Book Description:
This book explores the role of actors in determining transitional justice in peacebuilding contexts. In recent decades, transitional justice mechanisms and processes have been introduced to a variety of settings, becoming widely regarded as essential elements in the ‘peacebuilding toolbox’. While it has increasingly been suggested that transitional justice is imposed by neo-imperial actors with little regard for the needs and cultures of local populations, evidence suggests that dismissing these policies as neo-imperial or neo-liberal impositions would result in grossly overlooking their dynamics, which involve a whole range of relevant actors operating at multiple levels. This book interrogates this theme through empirical analysis of three sites of peacebuilding that have seen extensive international involvement: Kosovo, East Timor and Afghanistan. It proposes a novel framework for analysing and approaching transitional justice in peacebuilding that disaggregates three broad sets of actors operating at different levels in relevant processes: external actors (international and regional levels), transitional justice promoters (local, national, international and transnational levels), and transitional regimes (national and local levels). The book argues that transitional justice in peacebuilding must be conceived of as actor-contingent and malleable due to the significance of agency and (inter)actions of key categories of actors throughout peacebuilding transition. This book will be of interest to students and practitioners of transitional justice, peacebuilding, law, and International Relations.
