My request for translation of the "Democratization and Civil War" was rejected by the publisher of the book, within which the paper is to be published. Because, they are "unable to grant permission for [me] to translate and publish this material into a [...] magazine until the book has been published." OK, fine. I am not complaining because this is the right way. But I am unhappy because, by its translation, I would be pleased to share an interesting work with others.
