New Politics, Progressive Policy

New Politics, Progressive Policy, explores the changing configurations of world power and their implications for politics and policy in the 21st century.  The series consists of politically engaged books that explore both the new challenges and progressive openings that are presented by the erosion of American hegemony and the jockeying for power among emerging economies, the positive and negative implications of non-state actors – social movements, NGOs, terrorists, global finance – and the challenges to global stability posed by climate change, global economic meltdown and inequality within and among nations. The series aims to provide scholars, students, researchers, policy makers, political activists and the general public with a critical analysis of the political, economic and cultural developments generated by these changing configurations of power. These books may represent new theoretical approaches to important political/policy issues; comparative politics and policy studies; a new way of looking at a policy arena; emerging trends in political development and international relations; or revisionist readings of history. New Politics, Progressive Policy reflects the political vision of the Caucus for a New Political Science of the American Political Science Association, the largest and most progressive caucus within the association.
