Crowdfunding in the United States and European Union: Markets, Platforms, Critics, and Future Prospects

Author: 

Liakopoulou, Irini, Oklahoma State University

This original book is the first serious study investigating the crowdfunding phenomenon, which has developed deep meaning for various stakeholders benefiting from this funding collection mechanism and its innovative new role, especially in the processes of business creation and spread of entrepreneurship. The actors involved -- promoters, supporters, and the platforms through which the campaigns are launched -- constitute an ecosystem in continuous evolution, which has grown dramatically and allows for its further development.

New England Local Government: The Case of Connecticut

Author: 

Rose, Gary L., Ph.D.; Professor and Chair, Department of Government, Sacred Heart University

Credentials: 

Author of Haywire: A Chronology of the 2016 Presidential Contest (2017), No Holds Barred: The 2012 Connecticut Senate Race (2013), Shaping A Nation: Twenty-Five Supreme Court Cases That Changed the United States (2010), and Connecticut in Crisis: Policy Challenges and the 2018 Contest for Governor

Local government in the New England states has historically been regarded as a style of government that most closely embodies the spirit of American democracy. Although models of local government vary from one town to the next, the common thread which unites all New England towns is that the people are empowered to choose their own form of government, and in doing so control their own destiny.

International Organizations and Reparations (W.B. Sheridan Law Books)

Author: 

Liakopoulos, Dimitris, Tufts University

In the first part of this book, noted legal scholar Dimtris Liakopoulos deals with reconstructing the legal regulatory framework governing human rights violations in the activities of organizations. After identifying rules that are generally applicable to organizations’ offenses and govern the profile of reparations, this study assesses primary rules that guarantee the right to an effective remedy. Liakopoulos then moves on to how this works in practice, examining the reparations obtainable by an individual in disputes between states and organizations.

The Role of Customs in International Treaties (W. B. Sheridan Law Books)

Author: 

Liakopoulos, Dimitris: Tufts University

The Role of Customs in International Treaties concentrates on issues of friction between member states of the United Nations. In view of the role played by the United Nations in resolving international disputes, Dimitris Liakopoulos hypothesizes that "practical guides" based on custom often catalyze the positions taken by states, courts, scholars, and other actors, constituting an "orthodox" position against which formulaic legal opposition will become predictably more difficult.

Predicting Gender Violence in India: A Counterintuitive Theoretical Approach (St. James’s Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

Vasudevan, Shritha K., University of Florida

In this provocative new book, Shritha Vasudevan argues that feminist international relations (IR) theory has inadvertently resulted in a biased worldview, the very opposite of what feminist IR set out to try to rectify. This book contests theoretical presumptions of Western feminist IR and attempts to reformulate it in contexts of non-Western cultures. Vasudevan deftly utilizes the theoretical constructs of IR to explore the ramifications for India.
