Global society and international relations : sociological concepts and political perspectives by Martin Shaw( Book )
10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 309 libraries worldwide
The debate about globalization is increasingly central to both sociology and international politics, but there have been few attempts to consider its implications for the essential frameworks of the disciplines. In this pathbreaking book, Martin Shaw places the concept of global society at the centre of analysis. He argues that this is now the only context in which it makes sense to talk about a society, or in which to discuss problems of 'international relations'. Shaw examines the recent sociological contribution to international relations thinking about the state and offers a broad critique of international relations theory. He claims that, while its issue agenda may have broadened, its conceptual base is still narrow. He argues for a comprehensive introduction of the concept of society into thinking about security, and that global society rather than international society is the relevant framework for understanding world politics

Post-military society : militarism, demilitarization, and war at the end of the twentieth century by Martin Shaw( Book )
16 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 175 libraries worldwide
With the collapse of the Cold War following the Eastern European revolutions and the ongoing democratization of the Soviet republics, optimism about peace has transformed the international political climate. Incidents such as the Gulf War, however, have tempered this optimism and cast doubts on the prospects for demilitarization. In this book, Martin Shaw examines some of the developments that lie behind the recent momentous changes and argues that, despite the Gulf War and other regional wars, militarism is in decisive retreat. Writing from a broadly sociological perspective, Shaw examines the roles of war and military institutions in human society and the ways in which preoccupation with war has affected domestic, regional, and international politics in the twentieth century. In doing so, he asks: When does the post-war era end? How have nuclear weapons altered the perception of war by society? What is the relationship between industrialism and militarism? The author contends that, despite the militarism of some Third World countries, societies in the advanced industrial world (especially in Europe) have been undergoing a profound demilitarization. These societies have become politically insulated from war preparation, have recognized the effect of social movements on inter-state relations, and are experiencing a "revolution of rising expectations." Offering evidence of "post-military citizenship," Shaw describes the increasing resistance to military conscription throughout the Western world, the replacement of blind obedience with demands for accountability in Eastern bloc countries, and the simultaneous rise of nationalism and communitarianism among Common Market members. And, in light of the collapse of Stalinist militarism in Europe and the USSR, Shaw suggests some of the changes that face Soviet society

What is genocide? by Martin Shaw( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
"In this intellectually and politically potent new book. Martin Shaw proposes a way through the confusion surrounding the idea of genocide. He considers the origins and development of the concept and its relationships to other forms of political violence. Offering a radical critique of the existing literature on genocide. Shaw argues that what distinguishes genocide from more legitimate warfare is that the 'enemies' targeted are groups and individuals of a civilian character. He vividly illustrates his argument from a wide range of historical episodes, and shows how the question 'What is genocide?' matters politically whenever populations are threatened by violence."--Jacket
