This book examines variation in electoral trajectories of the new single-issue parties in Europe: green, radical right, and ethnoterritorial parties; it argues that the fortunes of these niche parties are shaped by the strategic responses of the mainstream parties; it advances a new theory of party competition in which mainstream parties facing unequal competitors have access to a wider and more effective set of strategies; combining statistical analyses with case studies, it explores how and why established parties undermine niche parties or turn them into weapons against their mainstream party opponents (dark blue cloth with gold lettering; blue & white pictorial cover; a bright, clean, tight copy)

This book traces historical processes from palaeolithic times to the present, providing an overview of the entire history of humanity; it takes its point of departure from Marx's theory of social evolution, but expands Marx's five stages of development to eight and, in contrast to Marx, denies that the transition from one stage to the next is necessarily marked by social conflict and revolution; the focus is not limited to the economic and socio-economic aspects of historical development, but also ethnic, cultural, religious, and military-technological factors; the author, an emeritus professor at the Institute of Oriental Studies at the University of St. Petersburg, denies that social evolution necessarily implies progress and shows how each progress is also a regress (blue pictorial cover with yellow & white lettering and Max Beckmann painting on the front; a bright, clean, tight copy)
