• Subregional integration and EU enlargement: Where next for CEFTA?

      Dangerfield, Martin (Oxford: Blackwell Publishing, 2006)
      The fifth enlargement of the EU has necessitated various adjustments to the pan-European trade and integration framework. This article discusses ways in which the Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA) has been affected by this process. What was CEFTA's role in the EU pre-accession process? How did CEFTA downsizing affect trade arrangements between the enlarged EU and the remaining CEFTA members? Also, how realistic is the idea that the end of CEFTA's role in central Europe could be a prelude to its revitalization as a vehicle for multilateralization of trade arrangements in the south east European setting?

    • The Republic in Danger: Neoconservatism, the American Right and the Politics of Empire

      Durham, Martin (Oxford: Blackwell Publishing, 2006)
      "George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq has brought new life to an old argument - that America is imperialist. As Chomsky ... has recently demonstrated, this is an argument associated with the left. But it does not always come from that section of the political spectrum. The claim that America is an empire has also been made from within the American right, and in two sharply different ways. For some, America is imperialist and must be stopped from being so. For others, however, it is imperialist and this is something to be applauded."
