"Author-Meets-Readers Roundtable: THERE'S SOMETHING HAPPENING HERE by David Cunningham (University of California Press, 2004)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 10, 2006 Online <PDF>. 2019-12-13 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p94424_index.html>

Abstract: A roundtable on the book There's Something Happening Here: The New Left, the Klan, and FBI counterintelligence, by David Cunningham (University of California Press, 2004). This book looks inside the FBI’s COINTELPRO against white hate groups and the New Left. In a painstaking analysis, Cunningham focuses on the complex organizational dynamics that generated thousands of COINTELPRO actions. His account shows how the workings of the programs led to outcomes that often seemed to lack any overriding logic. Cunningham extends his analysis to the FBI’s often controversial recent actions to show the influence of the COINTELPRO legacy on contemporary debates over national security and civil liberties.

2. Pressman, Jeremy. "From Madrid and Oslo to Camp David: the United States and the Arab-Israeli Conflict, 1991-2001" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, Town & Country Resort and Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA, Mar 22, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-12-13 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p98240_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This paper describes the important events in Arab-Israeli relations from 1991-2001. Much of the focus is on the role of the United States. The paper offers both particular and more general explanations for the failure of the Oslo process. I conclude that Israeli-Palestinian and/or Israeli-Syrian agreements were probably possible but a range of procedural errors undermined the negotiations.

3. Rothman, Maarten. "David Hume andglobalization" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Midwest Political Science Association, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, Illinois, Apr 15, 2004 <Not Available>. 2019-12-13 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p82955_index.html>

Abstract: Modern liberal and democratic theory derives its de- or
prescription for the setting of justice from the work of David Hume,
particularly
the third book of A Treatise of Human Nature. In short, Hume posited
that justice is based on the existence of concrete relations between
individuals forming a more or less discrete society, in which notions
of what is right could develop and in which these would gain force from
the sympathy growing around relations of necessity. Hume and his
contemporaries thus naturally identified the nation-state as the proper
setting for justice; and modern political theory has followed in that
track. Charles Beitz’s extension of John Rawls’s Theory of Justice
demonstrates, however, that the growing volume, intensity and
importance of inter- and transnational relations (economic or
otherwise) implies claims to a kind of international justice:
interdependence creates a claim to distributive justice between
nations. The argument of this paper resumes this theme in the context
of a further intensification of transnational relations, namely
globalization. In this paper I begin by contrasting Hume’s description
of society (as a discrete entity) with current discussions of
globalization, asking in particular whether Hume’s description still
applies to our situation. I then proceed to inquire after the meaning
and growth of sympathy according to Hume’s account, and ask whether our
contemporary global scene can or does provide for its emergence. What
occassions this paper is the common characterization of
“anti”-globalization protesters as humanitarian idealists: I argue, on
the contrary, that this movement, or collection of movements, embodies
the sympathy growing around concrete relations.

Abstract: I argue that the central themes of David Hume's liberal political vision are best understood as the result of a dialectical confrontation with eighteenth-century natural law theory and British civic republicanism.
