Today a billion people, including about 340 million of the world's extreme poor, are estimated to live in 'fragile states'. This group of low-income countries are often trapped in cycles of conflict and poverty, which make them acutely vulnerable to a range of shocks and crises. This engaging book defines and clarifies what we mean by fragile states, examining their characteristics in relation to "weak" and "failed" states in the global system, and explaining their development from pre-colonial times to the present day. It explores the connections between fragile statehood and violent conflict, and analyses the limitations of outside intervention from international society. The complexities surrounding 'successes' such as Costa Rica and Botswana - countries which ought to be fragile, but which are not - are analysed alongside the more precarious cases of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Afghanistan and Haiti. Absorbing and authoritative, Fragile States will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars of international relations, security studies and development.

The Fragile Heart was written during the most difficult trials of my life. I lost three children, was diagnosed with Chrons disease, and lost my job after working in a career for more than ten years. Anyone who has ever had to deal with difficult circumstances that have caused heartbreak can identify with the excruciating pain and hardship it can bring. During those times, it was an uphill struggle to find comfort and peace of mind again. In this book, we will talk about how to experience comfort, deliverance, but most of all, a complete healing through the Love and Word of God. I pray that this book touches and ministers to your heart, and that you find solace in knowing that, while going through difficult times, you are not alone and God can heal your broken and fragile heart. After reading this book, I was inspired to serve the Lord even more vigorously. Having known Shelly for years, I have seen the growth in her life and was very impressed with the way that she put her experiences into words. The Fragile Heart is a must read not only for Christians but for everyone who needs encouragement and understanding during trying times. -Pastor Warner Bradby Shelly and her husband, Damon, make their residence in Maryland with their four-year-old daughter, Hannah. They fellowship at Glorious Trinity Apostolic Faith Holiness Church in Baltimore where Shelly serves as a missionary, Sunday school teacher, choir director, and youth leader. Before being called to serve in ministry in 2008, Shelly worked in property management for 10 years. She and her staff were recognized for their achievements and won many awards. In her spare time, Shelly sings with her family singing group, "The Allen Family." Most of all, Shelly enjoys spending time with her family.

Political parties play a central, if not the central, political role in parliamentary democracies. They are also likely to play a key role in the establishment of new parliamentary democracies. This volume provides a systematic comparison of the democratic transitions in both Eastern and Southern Europe from this point of view. There are four main themes concerning the role of parties that are examined: coping with the past (party identities and inheritances),the formation and performance of new democratic political elites, parties and alliances and their electoral behaviour. These themes guide the case studies, (which are written in comparative perspective), in four countries in both Southern and Eastern Europe. The countries covered include Italy, Spain, Greece, Portugal, Hungary, Romania, Poland and Bulgaria. Democratization is a very complex process, but what the study of political parties does is to focus on an area that links many of them. This book is intended to be a guide to students wishing to make sense of democratization and the role of political parties in that process.
