A Prince Too Far: The Great Powers and the Shaping of Modern Albania
  Ferdinando Salleo/ 9780996648424/ Price:US$ 24.00
Book Cover The newly liberated Albanians were not invited to the Great Powers°¶ conference on the future of Albania in London in August 1913. The conferees established an International Commission of Control to oversee the creation of a new Albanian state, and in its final week drew the frontier between Albania and Greece. A compromise had to be struck between Austro-Hungary and Italy (supporters of Albanian claims) and Russia and France (supporters of Greek claims). It was decided that Albania should become an independent kingdom, and the designated leader was Prince Wilhelm of Wied, a Protestant minor prince related to the queens of Romania and the Netherlands. The Muslim minority in Albania lost no time in rising in rebellion against their new king. Salleo goes into considerable detail about the actual fighting, but he is at his best in describing the political maneuverings of the participating powers as they attempt to second guess each other, and to gain advantage as the larger conflict loomed ever larger.

Volume 4: Examines the main theories of conflict moderation: democratic peace; trade and interdependence; deterrence; and international institutions. The final sections review the expansion, settlement and renewal of conflict.

VB02-70 Encyclopedia of International Development.
  Forsyth, Tim/ 9780415253420/ Price:ĘG 200.00
The Encyclopedia of International Development is a large-scale work that concentrates on presenting explanations of thematic concepts and debates associated with 'development', both as an academic field of study and an activity engaged in by governments and aid agencies around the world, thus providing theoretical context and organizational background for the subject. Since the 1960s, most industrialized countries of Europe and North America have identified international development as a routine part of government policy. Today, the practise international development is still growing and also becoming more complex as more and more countries engage in development, and international development addresses further, an ever-larger range of activities. Furthermore, many non-governmental and private sector agencies are now also emerging to undertake development work in addition to government bureaux. This growth has been matched by an increase in academic research into the subject, and a mounting number of universities offer degree courses in International Development. This title will be an essential purchase for public and academic libraries, international organizations, charities, government departments as well as students and academics in the field of international development.

VB02-41 Great Game, The: Britain and Russia in Central Asia, 8-Vols/Set.
  Ewans, Martin/ 9780415316385/ Price:ĘG 1560.00
The Great Game: Britain and Russia in Central Asia is a collection of key works written in the course of the nineteenth century, when Central Asia was the focus of a political and diplomatic confrontation between Britain and Russia. While the confrontation lasted, commentators on both sides wrote voluminously about their perceptions of the opposing threat. Soldiers and other adventurers also traversed the region, to gather intelligence and engage with local rulers, and their accounts of their travels are an important part of the picture. Official documents are also a vital source of insights into the private perceptions of both governments. In selecting items for this collection, the aim has been to include those that are both important in themselves and representative of others of a similar type. There were, for example, a large number of British writers who expatiated at length on the Russian threat, and it would be superfluous to include other than those whose works were of a seminal nature. The era of the 'Great Game' divides itself conveniently into three parts. The first stretched from the early years of the century to the disastrous intervention in Afghanistan which is known as the First Anglo-Afghan War, 1939-42. The second spanned the period between that conflict and the Second Anglo-Afghan War, 1878-80, while the third terminated with the Anglo-Russian Convention of 1907, which effectively marked the end of the confrontation.

SB03-350 The New International Relations: Theory and Practice.
  Smouts, Marie-Claude/ 9781850654339/ Price:ĘG 16.50
Are international relations as we have known them coming to an end, to be replaced by a global politics in which inter-power rivalry and the exercise of authority are not longer to be defined within national boundaries, and the distinction between states and non-state actors will beome irrelevant? In this commissioned study, specialists in international relations from the Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches Internationales in Paris explore the impact on international affairs of globalization and the post-bi-polar world. They also scrutinize the state of knowledge concerning themes of nationalism and its resurgence, the building of a unitary Europe, international political economy, conflicts and conflict resolution, the narrowing of time and space, and the role of international organizations.
