Description : We examine voting behavior of Western allied countries in line with the United States over the period 1949 until 2019. Descriptive statistics show that voting in line with the United States on resolutions in the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) was on average 7.2 percentage points lower under Donald Trump than under the preceding United States presidents. The policy shift is especially pronounced for resolutions dealing with the Middle East. The decline in common UNGA voting behavior is significant for the resolution agreement rate and the absolute difference of ideal points. The results suggest that the alienation of Western allies is not driven by ideological distance based on a classical leftwing-rightwing government ideology scale.

Description : No analysis of the Donald Trump phenomenon and American neo-nationalism is satisfactory without examining the impact of both the Christian Right and the secular nationalist right, both in the USA and abroad. This book analyses the political impact of both strands in relation to America’s culture wars at home and the clash of civilisations in the USA’s foreign policy. Each strand — religious and secular — has had different issues to pursue during the Trump presidency; religious liberty and associated issues, on the one hand, and 'America's place in the world', on the other. This book demonstrates how both strands overlap and draw on each other's concerns to exhibit a pronounced, multifaceted neo-nationalism which was ideologically important for the Trump presidency. The author emphasises that the Trump phenomenon has been building for decades, and the Trump presidency has used significant political, social, economic, and cultural disquiet, and the post-2008 economic crisis and associated global turmoil, to fashion and progress policies which appeal strongly to both the Christian Right and many secular nationalists. This book will be of interest to students, researchers, and policy-makers interested in American politics, American political history, religion and politics in America, and religion and IR with a focus on the USA.

Description : Seminar paper from the year 2018 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Near East, Near Orient, grade: 1,3, University of Hamburg (Fakultät für Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften), course: The Middle East in International Relations, language: English, abstract: The status of Jerusalem has always been a very sensitive, symbolic and central issue regarding the Arab-Israeli conflict. This leads to the central question of this essay: How can the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by the Trump administration be explained through either a structural realist or constructivist approach? For Palestinians and Israelis, for Muslims, Christians and Jews around the world, Jerusalem is an anchor of modern identity. The Israelis claim it as the capital of their nation, the Palestinians want it to be the center of their hoped-for future state. The issue has gained a critical urgency and relevance recently, because on December 6, 2017 US-President Donald J. Trump announced the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. By reversing seven decades of US neutrality and appeasement policy in this matter, his decision caused a lot of frustration among the Arabic community and states around the world. The UN General Assembly called the status of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital "null and void" - a pretty extraordinary situation of disagreement between the UN and the United States (Res. ES-10/L.22 2017). This essay will establish a theoretical framework, by comparing the two schools of thought within the rational-constructivist debate. Subsequently, both theories will be applied on the present case of US foreign policy, after having ensured contextual understanding by going through essential historical aspects of US-Israeli relations and the effects of Trump’s decision.

Description : President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have built their politics on the promise of making their countries 'great again'. Placing India and the US as leaders on the world stage is the stated objective of their respective foreign policies, based as they are on the assumption that both inherited a mess from their predecessors. Both are trying to re-litigate the notions of self, enemy and allies in their respective countries. Varghese K. George, in Open Embrace, provides an overview of the changes occurring in America's relations with the world under the Trump presidency and what it means for India. While Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush emphasized that the US's relations with India would shape the twenty-first century, Trump's 'America First' politics is a repudiation of the nation's strategic culture. Trump's alignment with Modi's world view-what George calls the Hindutva Strategic Doctrine-and the US's changing relationships with India's neighbours, Pakistan and China, form a crucial part of this narrative.

Description : So many people were sure that Donald John Trump's participation in the 2016 Presidential election was just a publicity stunt, a joke, an effort to gain attention. Many were certain that surely this man, who has no experience in politics, wouldn't follow through and pursue the country's highest political office. Donald Trump had an exciting campaign for the presidency: from his investigation and instigating of opponent Hillary Clinton to his seemingly never-ending promises for success after the election. In Trump Revealed: A Great President? we will first offer a short biography of who the 45th President of the United States is, followed by facts about his Presidential campaign trail, Trump's goals for the 45th presidency, the election results of the 2016 presidential election, and what was accomplished during Donald Trump's first year in office as the United States of America's 45th President. Trump Revealed: A Great President? evaluates the Trump presidency from the announcement of his candidacy to October 2017 (almost through to the end of the first year of his presidency). Including quotes and tweets from President Donald Trump, while taking a neutral standpoint to clearly display a brief biography of Donald Trump and his political goals, the information contained within this book leaves it up for you to decide the following: - Is Donald J. Trump truly working for the American people or just working towards benefiting his own personal legacy? - Is Donald Trump taking the Presidency seriously or is this position of power the result of a publicity stunt gone too far? - What was Donald Trump trying to prove on the campaign trail? What is he trying to achieve in office? Has he achieved some of his goals while holding office as the 45th President of the United States of America? And lastly, is Donald Trump really doing as he promised and making America great again?

Description : This book provides a scholarly assessment and analysis of the Trump campaign and early presidency. This assessment and analysis is important not only to help provide some coherence to the turbulent and unpredictable character of “Trumpism,” but to contribute to establishing a scholarly foundation for future works that will provide assessments of the Trump presidency in its mid and later stages. Given the divisive and destructive capacity of “Trumpism” and its political and social implications both domestically and internationally, understanding the distinctive political phenomenon of “Trumpism” is necessary if resistance to this transformative moment in American political history is to be successful. This book collects a series of short scholarly contributions on various themes related to “Trumpism” by scholars from disciplines in both the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Description : This volume examines the impact of the Trump presidency on development aid. It starts out by describing the rise of national populism, the political landscape and the reasons for rejection of the political establishment, both under Trump and internationally. Next, it gives a historical-political overview of development aid in the post WW-II era and discusses the dominant Washington Consensus doctrine and its failure. It then provides a critique of the Official Development Assistance (ODA) discourse and reviews the political economy of ODA, the discourse, and the conditionalities that are barriers to socio-economic development. The final chapters explore the question of Trumponomics as an alternative to the global neoliberal ODA, and the potential impact of Trumponomics’ on ODA. The book concludes with thoughts on the potential future directions for ODA within the ‘ideals’ of Trumponomics and national populism.

Description : This book contains 245 political satire memes, all about President Trump and his presidency. It is 12 chapters, each with a brief introductory narrative about the chapter’s subject matter. The topics are broad in scope involving personal, family, but mainly topical domestic and international political issues. It is original work product and I believe, politically speaking, rather timely. It is a rare day when Donald Trump doesn’t dash off an utterance or executive order provoking needless nervousness in the financial markets or rapid ruckus in the domestic or international political theater; not to mention angst or anger with a slice of voters. Most of this hubbub is unrehearsed, unnecessary and often countermanded or modified, usually quietly or nuanced. Trump’s presidency has not only been unpredictable and chaotic, but also occasionally dangerous. The 245 political satire memes in my work are meant to both entertain and inform. The entertainment ones take serious liberties with the facts and feature a lighthearted side of this presidency. The informative align more closely with reality and are designed to demonstrate that the stakes are enormous for the business of the presidency between now and November 3, 2020, the consequential election date. In short, the work strives to elicit both smiles and encourage critical thought.

Description : Corey R. Lewandowski and David N. Bossie, the authors of the blockbuster, Let Trump Be Trump: the Inside Story of His Rise to the Presidency, are back with their next New York Times bestseller. The assault on the 45th president began immediately following Donald J. Trump's victory in the 2016 presidential election. It was then that Democrats concocted the absurd story of Russian spies and international plots as an excuse for Hillary's humiliating defeat. It was in those early days, too, during the presidential transition, when enemies of Donald Trump began to tunnel their way into the White House with the intent to undermine the president and subvert his agenda. Perhaps there are no two people better to tell what is certain to be the story of our lifetime than Corey R. Lewandowski and David N. Bossie. The guys in the room who brought you the bestselling account of the 2016 Donald J. Trump for President campaign, Let Trump Be Trump, Lewandowski and Bossie now offer a first-hand account of what is, perhaps, the battle for the life of our very democracy. Using unparalleled, behind-the-scenes sourcing from inside the White House and on Capitol Hill, and access to the president and other key players, Trump's Enemies offers a never-before-seen look deep into the forces aligned against the president. Lewandowski and Bossie were present in Trump Tower and at Bedminster during the presidential transition and saw the events that gave root to the unelected "resistance" in the White House today. Bossie was witness to the moment the fake Russia investigation was enacted by James Comey, who legitimized the phony "Steele dossier" by presenting it to the new president-elect. A close confidant of the president, Lewandowski knows what goes on behind the West Wing walls as well as anyone. But Trump's Enemies is also the story of how President Trump is fighting back. In the face of a gale of media disinformation and the looming black cloud of Mueller's politically motivated investigation, President Trump has still managed to accomplish more than any of his predecessor in the short time he's been in office. Often traveling with the president on Air Force One to rallies around the country, Lewandowski and Bossie tell, as no one else can, the story of Donald Trump bringing his message to the people who are the only ones who should decide the future of his presidency-the American voters.

Description : President Donald J. Trump’s “America First” outlook has inspired both enthusiasm and condemnation among different segments of the American population. This book examines the meaning and implications of that perspective, and how the Trump Administration has implemented it—or failed to do so. Contributors, subject-matter experts with diverse points of view, place the Trump Doctrine within the succession of presidential foreign policy themes, and provide a case-by-case analysis of how it has been applied in specific regions and countries around the world. The book’s aim is to provide a fair and balanced assessment, relatively rare in this period of intense partisanship and impending national election.

Description : Main theses • Despite the trend of rising multi-polarity the transatlantic community of the EU and the US remains a key economic and political alliance on the globe. Nevertheless, Donald Trump’s as-cent as the US President changed the nature of relations between the EU and the US as will the exit of the UK from the European Union. For the first time since World War II, Trump has emerged as an American leader who questioned benefits of European integration. What is worse, some of his statements have been noticeably and openly anti-European.• After the EU membership referendum in the UK and anticipated Brexit, a relationship be-tween Germany and the US, in economic terms, will become the backbone of the transatlantic community due to Germany’s share in economic exchange (FDI, trade in goods and services) between the US and the EU. At the same time, bilateral Polish-US economic relations have been below their potential but Poland’s economy has been strongly integrated with Germany through the global value chains. By default, Poland benefits from European trade with the US, although mostly intermediated by its Western neighbor.• Given President Trump’s rhetoric and actions on trade, there still has been a risk of a trade spat between Germany/EU and the US if not a fully-fledged trade-war. It has been not only the US but also international institutions and EU trade partners that have criticized German trade surplus for a long time. Germany, in turn, repeatedly pointed out at its competitiveness and the need for the trade partners to increase theirs. With time passing, the German posi-tion regarding the country’s trade surplus has become more flexible. A discussion has been ongoing about the need to step up internal German consumption and investments that could contribute to a decrease in its trade surplus. • Poland, because of its frontier location within NATO and the EU, defines its key national inter-ests in its relations with the US mainly in security terms. Since Russia is seen as a rising threat due to its neo-imperial policies, Polish approach and plea remains perfectly legitimate as the US remains the only reliable security provider for the country. It is critical for Poland that re-lations with and within NATO remain strong. This requires, however, to reconcile competing claims of President Trump of a radical increase in military spending by the European allies as a precondition to the survival of the Alliance, with those of Germany, that wants to balance military spending with other security related expenses. • Substantial ideological differences exist between the Polish ruling elite and the Trump admin-istration on the one side, and the mainstream of the German political elite on the other. The current Polish government of Law and Justice (PiS) positions itself as an ideological adherent of President Trump. It tries to use this ideological affiliation to leverage its ties with the US. On the other hand, the same ideological propensities of President Trump that proved so al-luring for the Polish conservatives, have seriously dented America’s image within the German society and, to a lesser degree, among its political elite. • The Polish government has been vehemently pursuing domestic policies that aim at disman-tling both, the rule of law and the ‘checks-and-balances’. These actions have put the country on a collision course with the EU. In consequence, Polish-German bilateral relations have also seriously deteriorated in recent months. Amongst many irritants, the Polish government has been unwilling to accept the de facto German leadership in the EU and its own position as Germany’s junior partner. In response to the rising tensions between Poland and both, the EU and Germany, the Law and Justice (PiS) government has been seeking the US-Polish relation to function as a potential “shield” against the criticism of Berlin and Brussels. The government would willingly see Poland replacing the UK as a key political ally of the US in the EU. This, however, would still need to be a different alliance to that with London as Warsaw does not match the UK’s potential nor the quality of its ties with the US. • The Polish government has been skeptical about the long-term benefits of Poland’s inclusion in the German-Polish economic value chains. To the extend, they see those value chains as a potential barrier for Poland, unhelpful in overcoming a so called “medium income trap” and as leading to a quasi-colonial, peripheral dependency that restricts the country’s sovereignty. The Polish government does not share the view that long-term modernization and conver-gence of Poland with the most advanced economies of the West will largely need to draw on solidified Polish-German economic ties, Poland’s accession to the Eurozone and, only subse-quently, on increasing economic cooperation with non-European countries including the US. In consequence, the idea of a possible decoupling of the Polish economy from Germany and, more widely from the Eurozone, expressed by prominent political figures within the ruling elite may prove a dangerous self-fulfilling prophecy that ultimately undermines Polish eco-nomic development.

Description : In 2020, America will elect a president, deciding not just the trajectory of its national politics but the future of American foreign policy. Will the Alt-Right, nationalist, and mercantilist approaches to international trade that characterized Donald Trump’s rise to power maintain its hold? Or will the “national security establishment” ultimately prevail, continuing the illusion of the indispensable nation? In A Democratic Foreign Policy, renowned IR scholar Ned Lebow draws upon decades of research and government experience to reject both options and set forth an alternative vision of American foreign policy, one based on a tragic understanding of life and politics. Lebow challenges the assumptions of establishment voices on both sides of the aisle, and offers a probing rethinking of America’s role in the world to disrupt the inertia of a bipartisan ideology that has dominated foreign policymaking since the days of Truman. Emphasizing the importance of America’s core values for shaping domestic and foreign policies, A Democratic Foreign Policy provides a vision and blueprint for a new congress and president to reorient America’s relationship with the world

Description : This book analyzes the combined consequences of Brexit and of the new US foreign policy under President Trump on the geopolitical situation of Eastern Europe. It perceives the evolution of the East European regional security complex as a struggle between the European Union's Kantian, win-win geopolitical vision and Russia's neoclassical geopolitics, also promoted by President Trump. In the most probable scenario, the latter approach will have the upper hand. The EU's post-Brexit control by the Franco-German axis will likely be followed by the geopolitical irrelevance of the EU due to the renationalization of member states' foreign policy, with Germany becoming the main West European actor. Consequently, Eastern Europe will be turned into the arena of a mainly three-cornered neoclassical geopolitics rivalry opposing Russia, the Franco-German axis and then Germany, and the US in alliance with the post-Brexit UK and certain East European states. The book will appeal to scholars across the fields of International Relations, Geopolitics, European Studies, and Area Studies.

Description : The Politics of Deception: Target America addresses the age-old subject of deception in politics as it has occurred throughout our nation's history with warnings we have received through scripture and iconic spiritual leaders and others concerning its menacing presence. Never has its presence in our domestic and international political environments been so apparent and pervasive. The hostile and polarizing state of those environments is the result of decades of deception, corruption, influence peddling, and espionage to support the infiltration and subversion of our government, educational and religious institutions, and society. It is much more apparent since the 2016 presidential election that we are witnessing a resurgence of the radical Left. Their militant secularist and socialist ideology and agenda is being aided and abetted by elements of our own and foreign intelligence services and corrupt establishment career politicians. Our nation, culture, and society are in peril. We are currently engaged in an uncivil and unholy war. It's a war between starkly different political ideologies and visions of America's future fueled from within and outside our national boundaries by the Bolsheviks, Alinsky disciples, and revolutionaries of the Left. The radical Left with their domestic and international allies are demons of demagoguery and deception and intend on hijacking our presidency, democratic electoral process with the heart and soul of America, and our wealth and freedoms. The ideological battle lines between Right and Left, Republican and Democrat, are drawn-right versus wrong, light versus darkness, culture of life versus culture of death, individualism versus collectivism, jobs versus welfare, God and family first versus godless me too first, spirit of Christ versus spirit of the antichrist, American exceptionalism versus American mediocrity, rule of law versus lawlessness, less government versus more intrusive government. The stakes are high, the choices clear. Choose wisely. God bless America.

Description : Donald Trump’s election has called into question many fundamental assumptions about politics and society. Should the forty-fifth president of the United States make us reconsider the nature and future of the global order? Collecting a wide range of perspectives from leading political scientists, historians, and international-relations scholars, Chaos in the Liberal Order explores the global trends that led to Trump’s stunning victory and the impact his presidency will have on the international political landscape. Contributors situate Trump among past foreign policy upheavals and enduring models for global governance, seeking to understand how and why he departs from precedents and norms. The book considers key issues, such as what Trump means for America’s role in the world; the relationship between domestic and international politics; and Trump’s place in the rise of the far right worldwide. It poses challenging questions, including: Does Trump’s election signal the downfall of the liberal order or unveil its resilience? What is the importance of individual leaders for the international system, and to what extent is Trump an outlier? Is there a Trump doctrine, or is America’s president fundamentally impulsive and scattershot? The book considers the effects of Trump’s presidency on trends in human rights, international alliances, and regional conflicts. With provocative contributions from prominent figures such as Stephen M. Walt, Andrew J. Bacevich, and Samuel Moyn, this timely collection brings much-needed expert perspectives on our tumultuous era.

Description : This book, the 32nd volume in the Canada Among Nations series, looks to the wide array of foreign policy challenges, choices and priorities that Canada confronts in relations with the US where the line between international and domestic affairs is increasingly blurred. In the context of the Canada-US relationship, this blurring is manifest as a cooperative effort by officials to manage aspects of the relationship in which bilateral institutional cooperation goes on largely unnoticed. Chapters in this volume focus on longstanding issues reflecting some degree of Canada-US coordination, if not integration, such as trade, the environment and energy. Other chapters focus on emerging issues such as drug policies, energy, corruption and immigration within the context of these institutional arrangements.

Description : This book assembles six chapters by respected and emerging scholars in political science and communication to produce a first sustained look at Twitter's role in the 2016 US Presidential Election. While much attention has already been paid to Trump's use of Twitter as a phenomenon—how it helps drive news cycles, distracts attention from other matters, or levies attacks against rivals, the news media, and other critics—there has been little scholarly analysis of the impact Twitter played in the actual election. These chapters apply an impressive diversity of theoretical explanations and methodological approaches to explore how this new technology shaped an American election, and what impact it could have in the future.

Trump's presidency has not only been unpredictable and chaotic, but also occasionally dangerous. The 245 political satire memes in my work are meant to both entertain and inform. The entertainment ones take serious liberties with the facts and feature a lighthearted side of this presidency. The informative align more closely with reality and are designed to demonstrate that the stakes are enormous for the business of the presidency between now and November 3, 2020, the consequential election date. In short, the work strives to elicit both smiles and encourage critical thought.

Description : Global supply chains connect the world in unprecedented and intricate ways. Geopolitics, Supply Chains, and International Relations in East Asia dissects the sources and effects of contemporary disruptions of these networks. Despite their dramatic expansion as distinct, complex, and unique mechanisms of economic interdependence, the role of supply chains in broader patterns of interstate conflict and cooperation has been relatively neglected. This volume sheds light on whether a highly interdependent “Factory Asia” and Asia-Pacific can withstand geopolitical, geo-economic, and pandemic threats. This combustible mix, fueled by rising hyper-nationalism in the US and China, threatens to unleash sizable disruptions in the global geography of production and in the international relations of East Asia.

Description : The rise of populism across Europe and the US – first in the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis and then in the shape of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and the Brexit vote in 2016 – are indicative of a seismic shift in the terrain of economic ideas in public discourse. Settled liberal norms concerning ever-increasing international market expansion, and the political integration required to sustain it, have been decisively upset by political forces that, whilst once on the fringes, now dominate economic debate. How might we make sense of this ideological breakdown and what might we hope for next? This book turns to the work of Karl Polanyi for answers, developing the expansive, historicised approach to political economy that Polanyi pioneered. Holmes provides a wide-ranging history of economic ideas read in terms of a series of hopeful theoretical visions of order, in which political, social and ecological contradictions could be transcended in one way or another. Through this, the book demonstrates that the failing utopian visions of pre-2008 economic orthodoxy, which have formed the backdrop to the rise of populism today, are only the latest in a series that stretches across economic thought in Western modernity as a whole. This book will interest students and scholars of IPE, political science, sociology, anthropology, law and history.

Description : This book is a critical exploration of the war on terror from the prism of armed drones and globalization. It is particularly focused on the United States’ use of the drones, and the systemic dysfunctions that globalization has caused to international political economy and national security, creating backlash in which the desirability of globalization is not only increasingly questioned, but the resultant dissension about its desirability appears increasingly militating against the international consensus needed to fight the war on terror. To underline the controversial nature of the "war on terror" and the pragmatic weapon (armed drones) fashioned for its prosecution, some of the elements of this controversy have been interrogated in this book. They include, amongst others, the doubt over whether the war should have been declared in the first place because terrorist attacks hardly meet the United Nations’ casus belli – an armed attack. There are critics, as highlighted in this book, who believe that the "war on terror" is not an armed conflict properly so called, and, thus, remains only a "law enforcement issue." The United States and all the states taking part in the war on terror are obligated to observe International Humanitarian Law (IHL). It is within this context of IHL that this book appraises the drone as a weapon of engagement, discussing such issues as "personality" and "signature" strikes as well as the implications of the deployment of spies as drone strikers rather than the Defence Department, the members of the U.S armed forces. This book will be of value to researchers, academics, policymakers, professionals, and students in the fields of security studies, terrorism, the law of armed conflict, international humanitarian law, and international politics.

Description : Are theoretical tools nothing but political weapons? How can the two be distinguished from each other? What is the ideological role of theories like liberalism, neoliberalism or democratic theory? And how can we study the theories of actors from outside the academic world? This book examines these and related questions at the nexus of theory and ideology in International Relations. The current crisis of politics made it abundantly clear that theory is not merely an impartial and neutral academic tool, but instead is implicated in political struggles. However, it is also clear that it is insufficient to view theory merely as a political weapon. This book brings together contributions from a number of different scholarly perspectives to engage with these problems. The contributors, drawn from various fields of International Relations and Political Science, cast new light on the ever-problematic relationship between theory and ideology. They analyse the ideological underpinnings of existing academic theories and examine the theories of non-academic actors such as staff members of international organisations, Ecovillagers and liberal politicians. This edited volume is a must-read for all those interested in the contemporary political crisis and its relation to theories of International Relations.
