Complex Hegemony in the 21st Century: power and inequality Conclusion : Review: Youngs is the Susan Strange for the new century. Craig N. Murphy, Wellesley College, USA: Youngs merges expertise in media, communications and global political economy to produce one of the most informed, insightful and accessible accounts to date of power and inequality in the Information Age. With a wealth of knowledge and a gentle hand, Youngs puts us on alert, spurs critical thinking, and points us forward. This fresh, engaging account deserves the widest possible audience. Spike Peterson, University of Arizona, USA: In this original and timely contribution, Gillian Youngs offers new insights into the increasingly complex, mediated sphere of the global political economy. In the process she challenges us rethink the nature and forms of contemporary global power and inequalities. John Tomlinson, Nottingham Trent University, UK : "Youngs's book is immensely ambitious, covering huge areas in order to embed a discussion of technology within major economic and political shifts in international relations. In her discussions she goes to the heart of ongoing tensions within the technological determinism of our modern information society, deconstructing the human-technology interface (with some discussion of genetics and nanotechnologies [45]). In looking at power and inequality, she brings together a diverse set of literature, from feminist critiques of the economy, gender and development, and science and technology to transnational debates on United Nations' indexes, poverty, and welfare." - Wendy Harcourt, Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society (Autumn 2008) : About the Author: This volume is an insightful, fresh and broad-ranging evaluation of the conceptual challenges of globalization and the new information era. : We are living in an unparalleled era of globalization; a world of Internet connectivity and emerging markets in which borders are becoming ever more permeable and trade increasingly global. From technology and change to knowledge and power, this book examines how established theoretical traditions of international relations and global political economy are shifting in the information age. Written from a critical perspective, it analyzes how information and technology are becoming of greater structural relevance to our understanding of globalization. By addressing the linkages between these two together with current socio-economic developments, Gillian Youngs argues that technology is one of the key ways in which we can study how power is attained and maintained in global political economy. This volume is divided into three sections: : time/space frameworks : borders and inequality : technofutures and power. : Global Political Economy in the Information Age will be of interest to students and scholars of international political economy, global governance, Internet politics, international economics, and politics and international relations in general.

Book Description: In this book David Wittner situates Japan's Meiji Era experience of technology transfer and industrial modernization within the realm of culture, politics, and symbolism, examining how nineteenth century beliefs in civilization and enlightenment influenced the process of technological choice. : Through case studies of the iron and silk industries, Wittner argues that the Meiji government's guiding principle was not simply economic development or providing a technical model for private industry as is commonly claimed. Choice of technique was based on the ability of a technological artifact to import Western "civilization" to Japan: Meiji officials' technological choices were firmly situated within perceptions of authority, modernity, and their varying political agendas. Technological artifacts could also be used as instruments of political legitimization. By late the Meiji Era, the former icons of Western civilization had been transformed into the symbols of Japanese industrial and military might. : A fresh and engaging re-examination of Japanese industrialization within the larger framework of the Meiji Era, this book will appeal to scholars and students of science, technology, and society as well as Japanese history and culture. : Review: 'Wittner's overall framework remains valid and offers a fresh way of looking at Japanese industrial and technological development - in cultural-political terms - during the critical opening decades of the modern era.' - Steven Ericson, Monumenta Nipponica 63:2 : About the Author: David Wittner is Associate Professor of Asian History at Utica College in Utica, New York, USA Size: 15.6 x 1.4 x 23.4 cm. 224 pages.

The articles in this special issue, drawn from a workshop hosted by the Institute of Governance, Queen?s University, Belfast, explicitly engage with and challenge conventional academic analyses in order to confront the ways in which the conflict on Northern Ireland has traditionally been represented and understood. Part of the reason for adopting this approach is because it is suggested that to a certain extent, academic analyses have defined the parameters of the conflict which has necessarily had implications for the shape of ensuing solutions. A further claim is that the persistent historical and political search for causes and solutions may be constitutive of the problems that conventional analysts seek to resolve. The articles in the first part introduce and problematize traditional analyses of the conflict. Additionally, these essays explain alternative approaches offering other ways of thinking about how the ?problem? of Northern Ireland has been constituted. The second part comprises empirically focused essays, each either engaging with or confronting the issue of the liberal hegemony that defines most analyses of the conflict. The final essay returns to more explicitly re-consider how the ?problem? of Northern Ireland has been theorized, represented and understood.
