Hegemon on the Offensive: Chinese Perspectives on U. S. Global Strategy
Yong Deng examines Chinese perceptions of and reactions to the U.S. global power status and grand security strategy after the cold war.

Dissonant Politics in Iran and Indonesia
Daniel Brumberg offers alternative concepts of state building, ideological change, and transitions in Islamic polities.

He illustrates his argument by exploring the evolution of dissonant politics in Iran and Indonesia.

Katherin Ross Phillips examines demographic differences in knowledge about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) among parents.
