About this product
- DescriptionMuch attention has focused on the ongoing role of ecomics in the prevention of armed conflict and the deterioration of relations. In The Political Ecomy of Transitions to Peace, Galia Press-Barnathan focuses on the importance of ecomics in initiating and sustaining peaceful relations after conflict.Press-Barnathan provides in-depth case studies of several key relationships in the post-World War II era: Israel and Egypt; Israel and Jordan; Japan, the Philippines, and Indonesia; Japan and South Korea; Germany and France; and Germany and Poland. She creates an analytical framework through which to view each of these cases based on three factors: the domestic balance between winners and losers from transition to peace; the ecomic disparity between former enemies; and the impact of third parties on stimulating new cooperative ecomic initiatives. Her approach provides both a regional and cross-regional comparative analysis of the degree of success in maintaining and advancing peace, of the challenges faced by many nations in negotiating peace after conflict, and of the unique role of ecomic factors in this highly political process.Press-Barnathan employs both liberal and realist theory to examine the motivations of these states and the societies they represent. She also weighs their power relations to see how these factor into ecomic interdependence and the peace process. She reveals the predominant role of the state and big business in the initial transition phase ( cold peace), but also identifies an equally vital need for a subsequent broader societal coalition in the second, rmalizing phase ( warm peace). Both levels of engagement, Press-Barnathan argues, are essential to a durable peace. Finally, she points to the complex role that third parties can play in these transitions, and the limited long-term impact of direct ecomic side-payments to the parties.
