Das in der Studie angelegte Analyseraster prüft die Korrelation zwischen einer Übernahme von Verlust- bzw. Gewinndarstellungen des Präsidenten durch Abgeordnete des US-Kongresses (Messung des Grades der Sekuritisierung /Desekuritisierung) und überparteilichem Abstimmungsverhalten durch Abgeordnete des US-Kongresses (Messung des Rally Effects). Der Ansatz der Versicherheitlichung, die methodisch um den Aspekt der Verlust- und Gewinndarstellungen der Neuen Erwartungstheorie erweitert wurde, dient als theoretischer Rahmen der Studie. Der Analysekorpus besteht aus einer qualitativen Fallstudie (Prozessanalyse) von sicherheitsrelevanten Gesetzen nach dem 11. September. Neben der kausalanalytischen Operationalisierung des Rally Effects im US-Kongress leistet diese Arbeit eine Weiterentwicklung der Securitization Theory um multiple Referenzobjekte und –subjekte und führt somit miteinander konkurrierende Bedrohungs- beziehungsweise Risikostimuli ein.

In the wake of the attacks of September 11, 2001, the United States launched initiatives that test the limits of international human rights law. The indefinite detention and torture of detainees at Guantánamo Bay, targeted killing, and mass surveillance require an expansion of executive authority that negates the rule of law. In Permanent State of Emergency, Ryan Alford establishes that the ongoing failure to address human rights abuses is a symptom of the most serious constitutional crisis in American history. Instead of curbing the increase in executive power, Congress and the courts facilitated the breakdown of the nation’s constitutional order and set the stage for presidential supremacy. The presidency, Alford argues, is now more than imperial: it is an elective dictatorship. Providing both an overview and a systematic analysis of the new regime, he objectively demonstrates that it does not meet even the minimum requirements of the rule of law. At this critical juncture in American democracy, Permanent State of Emergency alerts the public to the structural transformation of the state and reiterates the importance of the constitutional limits of the American presidency.

Islamophobia is a contemporary form of cultural racism against Muslims. It has emerged in Australia as an outcome of general public opposition to multiculturalism and migration as well as in response to international conflicts involving Muslims. ISLAMOPHOBIA IN AUSTRALIA is a timely book that traces the rise of racism against Muslims through an extensive analysis of critical events and issues including the Gulf War, the September 11 terror attacks, the Bali bombings, ethnic crime, ethnic gang rapes, Middle Eastern asylum seekers, the Cronulla riots and the negative portrayals of Muslims and Muslim women in the Australian media and public discourse. Since tolerance does not offer minorities social acceptance or equality in contemporary multicultural societies, this book suggests that the recognition of Muslims and minorities as "real Australians" and as "one of us" and giving them "a fair go" are the key ingredients of a more democratic, equal and truly multicultural Australia in the 21st century.
