The Social Science Library has arranged trial access to two databases from Gale Cengage until 31 October 2018: Chatham House Online Archive 1920-2008, and Political Extremism and Radicalism in the 20th Century. Both databases will be of particular interest to researchers in International Relations, Politics, Global Governance and Diplomacy, Public Policy, International Development, Economics, Area Studies, History and more.
Chatham House Online Archive 1920-2008 is a searchable online database covering 88 years of the institute’s expert analysis and commentary on international policy. Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, is an independent policy institute based in London where world leaders and policy-makers are invited to discuss their views in an impartial environment. The online archive includes briefing papers, special reports, pamphlets, conference papers, monographs, as well as the audio recordings of Chatham House lectures and their fully searchable transcripts.
Political Extremism and Radicalism in the 20th Century is an online archive of briefing papers, reports, pamphlets and other publications from various Far-Right and Far-Left Political Groups in the US, Europe and Australia. Having this primary source material all together in one searchable database enables researches to explore the origins and development of present-day issues, including the resurgence of right-wing politics, evolution of various civil rights movements and the nature of radical political thought.
