    This chapter examines the mirror image of the identity association principle: dissociation. While the association principle posits that stimuli associated with a positively regarded identity receive more positive evaluations, the dissociation principle suggests that stimuli associated with negatively regarded identities will receive negative evaluations and be abandoned. The authors focus on the nature of dissociative reference groups or groups that the consumer is motivated to avoid association with, and present a framework outlining how dissociative influence can impact consumer behavior. They review the literature on dissociative influence and note that although dissociative reference groups often spur avoidance behaviors, they can sometimes induce approach behaviors. They then turn to a discussion of how dissociative associations can lead to polarizing reactions in real-world domains, such as politics. Finally, they draw on their theorizing to outline some suggested directions for future research in this regard.

    This chapter examines the future of environmental degradation in Africa. While acknowledging the relative role of population growth and unsustainable agriculture practices in environmental degradation in the region, the chapter considers the role played by excess consumption, poverty and HIV/AIDS, corrupt African states and international capital in determining the future of natural resources in Africa as critical. The relationship between states and international business corporation has been particularly detrimental to the region’s environment, and will continue to present a formidable threat to natural resources, especially as the World Trade Organization becomes more influential in ensuring unrestricted movement of international capital. Alternative imagination by the New Partnership for Africa Development (NEPAD) that sees Africa’s development beyond the current economic and political order is critical for arresting future environmental degradation.

    Peacekeeping has become a major international undertaking throughout the world, from Africa to the Americas, from Europe to Southeast Asia. Yet until now, there has been no systematic analysis of the key role of gender in post-Cold War conflicts and postconflict peacekeeping efforts. This groundbreaking volume explores how gender has become a central factor in shaping current thinking about the causes and consequences of armed conflict, complex emergencies, and reconstruction. Drawing on expertise ranging from the highest levels of international policymaking down to the daily struggle to implement peacekeeping operations, this work represents a wide span of knowledge and experience about international intervention in local crises. Presenting a rich array of examples from Angola, Bosnia, East Timor, EI Salvador, the former Yugoslavia, Guatemala, Haiti, Kosovo, Liberia, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, and Serbia, the authors offer important insights for future peacekeeping and humanitarian missions.
