Inclusive Housing Management and Community Wellbeing: A Case Study of Hong Kong

Inclusive Housing Management and Community Wellbeing: A Case Study of Hong Kong by Kwok-yu Edward Lee , Wai-wan Vivien Chan
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 356 Pages | ISBN : 9819721318 | 32 MB

This book examines the contributory role of inclusive housing management services in safeguarding the living environment, empowering neighborhoods, sustaining lovable home, building social capital, fostering community wellbeing and social sustainability from the perspective of the sociology of housing. By repositioning professional housing management as an important driving force in community building, this book argues that the community-initiated inclusive housing management model has been acting as a cornerstone in enhancing a sense of belonging, cultural renewal, environmental sustainability, social integration and community cohesion particularly in cities with high density and compact development. This case study in Hong Kong will make an important contribution to interdisciplinary research in urban sociology, business management, community development, leadership building and environmental health. This study also contributes to the international literature on the dynamics of neighborhood and community governance by addressing the concrete local community initiatives and collaborative management practices in meeting the ever-changing environmental, social and health risks in Hong Kong and beyond. It will be of value to scholars researching on housing management and inclusive community building in world cities globally.

The Boiling Moat: Urgent Steps to Defend Taiwan by Matt Pottinger
English | July 1st, 2024 | ISBN: 0817926453 | 287 pages | True PDF | 8.69 MB

Chinese leader Xi Jinping has openly expressed his intention to annex Taiwan to mainland China, even threatening the use of force. An invasion or blockade of Taiwan by Chinese forces would be catastrophic, with severe consequences for democracies worldwide. In The Boiling Moat, Matt Pottinger and a team of scholars and distinguished military and political leaders urgently outline practical steps for deterrence. The authors stress that preventing a war is more affordable than waging one and emphasize the importance of learning from recent failures in deterrence, such as Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

The Palgrave Handbook of Political Norms in Southeast Asia

The Palgrave Handbook of Political Norms in Southeast Asia by Gabriel Facal, Elsa Lafaye de Micheaux, Astrid Norén-Nilsson
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 635 Pages | ISBN : 9819996546 | 40.1 MB

This handbook aims to constitute a reference point on political norm dynamics in Southeast Asia, by bringing together the array of normative repertoires that frame the possibilities for citizens to participate in, set agendas for, make decisions in, and contest, not only electoral and institutional politics but also informal and imaginary political spaces. It sheds light on intersecting political and social transformations and their consequences from the vantage point of political norms. While chapters lay out and analyse how political norms across Southeast Asia have been shaped in successive historical phases, the core of the handbook addresses current dynamics involved in defining and transforming political norms.

China’s Two Identities: Territorial Empire and Postmodern Global Power

China’s Two Identities: Territorial Empire and Postmodern Global Power

China’s Two Identities: Territorial Empire and Postmodern Global Power by Theodor Tudoroiu
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 276 Pages | ISBN : 9819728827 | 5 MB

This book presents an original explanation of the stark contrast between two very different Chinese foreign policy patterns. On the one hand, there is Beijing’s hard power actorness related, among others, to territorial disputes and ‘wolf warrior’ intimidating maneuvers. On the other hand, there are China’s peaceful and cooperative actions, well-illustrated by the Belt and Road Initiative. This book shows that this situation is best understood as a consequence of the coexistence of two different Chinese identities respectively associated with the concepts of nineteenth-century-style territorial empire, and twenty-first-century-style postmodern global power. The book contends that in China’s case, they form a virtuous circle—characterized by a specific division of labor—as both identities are instrumental to the construction of a new, Chinese-led international order. The book provides a detailed analysis of the genesis, development, features, and interplay of these identities. It is relevant to scholars in China studies, political history, contemporary politics, and foreign policy.
