The study unearths in European writings about chief rivals -- Islamic civilization between the first Crusade in 1095 and the final Ottoman siege of Vienna in 1683, and the United States of America from independence in 1776 until the present – persistent solicitude regarding Europe’s capacity to lead the world. Intriguingly, however, this very self-doubt prompted the kind of intense introspection which helped, in the past, to forge seismic progressive reform movements such as the Renaissance, Reformation and Scientific Revolution that ultimately propelled Europe past a more inward-looking Islam and which, today, may very well be positioning a rapidly transforming Europe Union to counter the hegemony of a seemingly smug America. The study concludes that frail, if not low self-esteem has played a significant role in the formation of European identity.

In this volume, several leading foreign policy and international relations experts consider the long term prospects and implications of US foreign policy as it has been shaped and practiced during the presidency of George W. Bush. The essays in this collection - based on the research of well-respected scholars such as Ole Holsti, Loch Johnson, John Ruggie, Jack Donnelly, Robert Leiber, Karen Mingst, and Edward Luck - offer a clear assessment: while US resources are substantial, Washington's ability to shape outcomes in the world is challenged by its expansive foreign policy goals, its exceptionalist approach to international relations, serious questions about the limits of its hard power resources as well as fundamental changes in the global system. Illustrating one of the central ironies of the contemporary situation in foreign affairs and international relations: that at the very time of the 'unipolar moment, ' the world has become globalized to such an extent that the unilateralism of the Bush Administration leads as much to resistance as it does to coercion, compliance, and cooperation. American Foreign Policy in a Globalized World will be of interest to students and scholars of politics and international relations.

On September 11, 2001, America's 700,000 law enforcement officers were forcefully introduced to a new era in policing after Islamist terrorists perpetrated the most savage and horrific terrorist violence ever on American soil. In spite of the post 9/11 proliferation of information about Islamist terrorism, many law enforcement officers remain uninformed about the nature, scope, and reality of this threat. Even the FBI (America's lead law enforcement agency in the struggle against Islamist terrorism) fails to arm its agents with accurate and comprehensive information to understand this patient, merciless, and fanatical foe. This manual was prepared to address this knowledge void by explaining the underlying politico-religious motivations that drives Islamist terrorism. It contains chapters that explain Islamist terrorism and describe the history of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad. The tenets of Islam and the ideology used to justify terrorist atrocities ranging from suicide/homicide bombings in Israel to the slaughter of school children in Beslan, Russia are documented. The history of Jihad, the oldest and most successful international Islamist group in the world, and how this group has established an effective subversive apparatus in America that works tirelessly to dismantle our democratic freedoms is described. The text explains that by using a “soft” form of Jihad, this group seeks to destroy Western ideals and democracy with the goal of replacing them with a fascist totalitarian ideology to obtain world domination and the forced imposition of a seventh century politico-religious system of law. The radicalization process that can lead apparently well-integrated Muslim citizens to terrorism is discussed, including the Taliban and al-Qaeda terrorist groups. A summary of comprehensive information detailing the Islamist groups active within America and the dangers they pose to Homeland Security is provided. In addition, the Appendices contain an Arabic Name Analysis, Ritual Prayer-Salat, Jihad Holy War Verse in the Koran, Jihad campaigns in history, “The Last Night” letter by Muhammad Atta who was the leader in the 9/11 attacks, and an explanatory memorandum on the general strategic goal for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. Perfect Enemy provides unbiased and accurate information to acquaint our law enforcement officers and Homeland Security officials with the Islamist mindset and threat. Knowing our adversaries is a fundamental first step in defeating their violent intentions and ensuring our survival, peace, and safety. (Publisher)

The Disjunctive Empire of International Relations

Yew imparts that contemporary forms of imperialism revolve around a disjunctive logic allowing cultural, civilizing and solipsistic feelings of classical European imperialism to interoperate with newer and morally-rectified strains of American superpower dominance. In order to explore how such an interoperability is possible, this book begins with a theoretical overview of how imperialism should be conceptualized, how it operates and how it produces a type of economy that allows it to evolve in accordance with historical transformations without losing sight of its ongoing emphasis of Western hegemony. ambivalent form of US imperialism is constituted, leading to the inability within American society to effectively handle non-state political opposition. There are therefore a number of intended readerships which include researchers and academics interested in new ways of thinking about imperialism and international relations and a wider audience in cultural studies, postcolonial studies and critical theory.

Is Islam compatible with democracy? Despite the endless debate on this issue, Moataz Fattah's study is a rare investigation of actual Muslim beliefs about democracy across numerous and diverse Islamic societies. Fattah's survey analysis of more than 31,000 Muslims in 32 countries (including 3 countries in which Muslims live as minorities), enhanced by focus group discussions, offers a portrait of the link between Islam and democracy. His work advances discussion on this critical topic to a new, more sophisticated level--Publisher's description.
