  • Fels, Enrico: Shifting Power in Asia-Pacific? The Rise of China, Sino-US Competition and Regional Middle Power Allegiance

    This book investigates whether a power shift has taken place in the Asia-Pacific region since the end of the Cold War. By systematically examining the development of power dynamics in Asia-Pacific, it challenges the notion that a wealthier and militarily more powerful China is automatically turning the regional tides in its favour. With a special emphasis on Sino-US competition, the book explores the alleged linkage between the regional distribution of relevant material and immaterial capabilities, national power and the much-cited regional power shift.

    The book presents a novel concept for measuring power in international relations by outlining a composite index on aggregated power (CIAP) that includes 55 variables for 44 regional countries and covers a period of twenty years. Moreover, it develops a middle power theory that outlines the significance of middle powers in times of major power shifts. By addressing political, military and economic cooperation via a structured-focused comparison and by applying a comparative-historical analysis, the book analyses in depth the bilateral relations of six regional middle powers to Washington and Beijing.

    裴钢 江波 辜学武 郑春荣/主编 : 德国创新能力的基础与源泉

    德国是公认的具有世界领先的创新能力的国家。德国创新能力的基础和源泉在哪里?为什么这个国家能在激烈的全球竞争中立于不败之地?不但世人没有回答清楚这两个问题,而且德国社会和学术界也就它们展开了激烈的争论。然而,清楚地回答这两个问题,不仅具有巨大的理论意义,还具有极大的现实意义。2015年是中德创新合作年。两国政府的期待、两国社会的兴趣、两国企业界的热情、两国学界的关心把同济大学的德国研究智库——同济大学德国研究中心——推到了研究德国创新能力的前沿。研究中心依托同济大学一百多年来积累的丰富的对德研究资源,携手校内外、国内外一流的德国问题专家,对德国创新能力的基础与源泉进行了系统的分析。本书主要探讨了不同领域同德国创新能力的关联,分析了各相关领域对德国创新能力的影响,并展现了这些影响机制的机理和力度。从而为理解德国创新能力的真正根源,为吸取德国创新的经验和教训,为提高中国的持续创新能力做出贡献。

    Fels, Enrico, Vu, Truong-Minh (Eds.): Power Politics in Asia´s Contested Waters – Territorial Disputes in the South China Sea

    This volume offers a comprehensive and empirically rich analysis of regional maritime disputes in the South China Sea (SCS). By discussing important aspects of the rise of China’s maritime power, such as territorial disputes, altered perceptions of geo-politics and challenges to the US-led regional order, the authors demonstrate that a regional power shift is taking place in Asia-Pacific. The volume also provides in-depth discussions of the responses to Chinese actions by SCS claimants as well as by important non-claimant actors.

    Pustovitovskij, Andrej: Strukturelle Kraft in Internationalen Beziehungen Ein Konzept der Macht in internationalen Verhandlungen

    Im Mittelpunkt des Buches steht der vom Autor entwickelte Ansatz der strukturellen Kraft als eine Antwort auf eine der entscheidenden Schwächen der politikwissenschaftlichen Machtforschung im Bereich der internationalen Beziehungen: das Fehlen kohärenter und gleichzeitig breit operationalisierbarer Machtkonzeptionen zur plausiblen Analyse der internationalen Verhandlungen. Von einer kritischen Bestandsaufnahme der realistischen, relationalen, behavioristischen und strukturellen Machtkonzepte ausgehend, wird der deduktiv entwickelte „synthetische“ Machtansatz in mehreren aktuellen Fallstudien auf den empirischen Prüfstand gestellt. Damit bietet der Autor ein in sich stimmiges, mit unterschiedlichen ontologischen Annahmen kombinierbares Werkzeug für die Analyse der Macht in internationalen Beziehungen.

    Klieman (eds.): Great Powers and Geopolitics – Great Powers and Geopolitics International Affairs in a Rebalancing World

    This book presents the theoretical-historical-comparative political framework needed to fully grasp the truly dynamic nature of 21st century global affairs. The author provides a realistic assessment of the shift from U.S predominance to a new mix of counterbalancing rival middle-tier and assertive regional powers, while highlighting those geopolitical zones of contention most critical for future international stability. The book will appeal to scholars and policy makers interested in understanding the contours of the emerging world order, and in identifying its principal shapers and leading political actors.

    Kirchberger, Sarah: Assessing Chinas Naval Power Technological Innovation, Economic Constraints, and Strategic Implications

    This book analyzes the rise of China’s naval power and its possible strategic consequences from a wide variety of perspectives – technological, economic, and geostrategic – while employing a historical-comparative approach throughout. Since naval development requires huge financial resources and mostly takes place within the context of transnational industrial partnerships, this study also consciously adopts an industry perspective. The systemic problems involved in warship production and the associated material, financial, technological, and political requirements currently remain overlooked aspects in the case of China.

    Drawing on first-hand working experience in the naval shipbuilding industry, the author provides transparent criteria for the evaluation of different naval technologies’ strategic value, which other researchers can draw upon as a basis for further research in such diverse fields as International Security Studies, Naval Warfare Studies, Chinese Studies, and International Relations.

    Mayer / Carpes / Knoblich (eds.): The Global Politics of Science and Technology Vol. I and II

    An increasing number of scholars have begun to see science and technology as relevant issues in international relations (IR), acknowledging the impact of material elements, technical instruments, and scientific practices on international security, statehood, and global governance. This two-volume collection brings the debate about science and technology to the center of international relations. It shows how integrating science and technology translates into novel analytical frameworks, conceptual approaches and empirical puzzles, and thereby offers a state-of-the-art review of various methodological and theoretical ways in which sciences and technologies matter for the study of international affairs and world politics. The authors not only offer a set of practical examples of research frameworks for experts and students alike, but also propose a conceptual space for interdisciplinary learning in order to improve our understanding of the global politics of science and technology.

    This this first volume summarizes various time-tested approaches for studying the global politics of science and technology from an IR perspective. It also provides empirical, theoretical, and conceptual interventions from geography, history, innovation studies, and science and technology studies that indicate ways to enhance and rearticulate IR approaches. In addition, several interviews advance possibilities of multi-disciplinary collaboration.

    The second volume raises a plethora of issue areas, actors, and cases under the umbrella notion techno-politics. Distinguishing between interactional and co-productive perspectives, it outlines a toolbox of analytical frameworks that transcend technological determinism and social constructivism.
