The Concert of Civilizations: The Common Roots of Western and Islamic Constitutionalism

The Concert of Civilizations: The Common Roots of Western and Islamic Constitutionalism by Dr. Jeremy KleidostyAre Western and Islamic political and constitutional ideas truly predestined for civilizational clash? In order to understand this controversy The Concert of Civilizations begins by deriving and redefining a definition of constitutionalism that is suitable for comparative, cross-cultural analysis. The rule of law, reflection of national character, and the clear delineation and limitation of governmental power are used as lenses through which thinkers like Cicero, Montesquieu, and the authors of The Federalist Papers can be read alongside al-Farabi, ibn Khaldun, and the Ottoman Tanzimat decrees....

Market Expansion and Social Dumping in Europe

Market Expansion and Social Dumping in Europe by Magdalena BernaciakThe term 'social dumping' regularly appears in public debates and in policymaking circles. However, due to its ambiguity it is used in a manner that is convenient for individual discourse participants, thus opening the door for misconceptions and ill-grounded accusations. This book systematically examines social dumping in the context of the European integration process. It defines social dumping as the practice, undertaken by self-interested market participants, of undermining or evading existing social regulations with the aim of gaining a competitive advantage. It also shows how the two major...

This volume brings together leading authorities in the field of democratic citizenship and participation to address pertinent questions concerning the quality of the democratic political process at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Analysing causes and consequences of recent developments in democratic governance and citizenship, it contributes new and original research to the...

Understanding China [3rd Edition]: A Guide to China's Economy, History, and Political Culture

After ten years, John Bryan Starr has thoroughly revised and updated his classic introduction to the background of, the data about, and the issues at stake in China's present and future.

The Rule of the Clan: What an Ancient Form of Social Organization Reveals About the Future of Individual Freedom

Deficits and Debt in Industrialized Democracies

Deficits and Debt in Industrialized Democracies by Eisaku Ide

Since the global financial crisis, government debt has soared globally by 40 percent and now exceeds an astonishing $100 trillion. Not all countries, though, have fared the same. Indeed, even prior to the financial crisis, the fiscal fates of countries have been diverging, despite predictions that pressures from economic globalization push countries toward more convergent fiscally conservative policies.

Featuring the work of an international interdisciplinary team of scholars, this volume explains patterns of fiscal performance (persistent patterns of budget deficits and government debt) from...

The Politicisation of Migration

The Politicisation of Migration by Wouter van der Brug

Why are migration policies sometimes heavily contested and high on the political agenda? And why do they, at other moments and in other countries, hardly lead to much public debate? The entrance and settlement of migrants in Western Europe has prompted various political reactions. In some countries anti-immigration parties have gained substantial public support while in others migration policies have been hardly controversial.

The Politicisation of Migration examines the differences between seven Western European countries by developing a conceptual framework to empirically explain patterns of...

Church and State in Soviet Russia: Russian Orthodoxy from World War II to the Khrushchev Years: Russian Orthodoxy from World War

Church and State in Soviet Russia: Russian Orthodoxy from World War II to the Khrushchev Years: Russian Orthodoxy from World War by Tatiana A. Chumachenko & Edward E. Roslof & Edward E. RoslofChurch-state relations during the Soviet period were much more complex and changeable than is generally assumed. From the German invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941 until the 21st Party Congress in 1961, the Communist regime's attitude toward the Russian Orthodox Church zigzagged from indifference and opportunism to hostility and repression. Drawing from new access to previously closed archives, historian Tatiana Chumachenko has documented the twists and turns and human dramas of church-state relations during these decades. This rich material provides essential background to the post-Soviet...

Clinton's Grand Strategy: US Foreign Policy in a Post-Cold War World

Clinton's Grand Strategy: US Foreign Policy in a Post-Cold War World by James D. BoysPresident Clinton's time in office coincided with historic global events following the end of the Cold War. The collapse of Communism called for a new US Grand Strategy to address the emerging geopolitical era that brought upheavals in Somalia and the Balkans, economic challenges in Mexico and Europe and the emergence of new entities such as the EU, NAFTA and the WTO. Clinton's handling of these events was crucial to the development of world politics at the dawn of the twenty-first century. Only by understanding Clinton's efforts to address the challenges of the post-Cold War era can we understand...

Political Culture in France and Germany (RLE: German Politics): A Contemporary Perspective

Political Culture in France and Germany (RLE: German Politics): A Contemporary Perspective by John GaffneyThis book, originally published in 1991, assesses how attitudes, political orientations and social values changed during the five decades after the Second World War. The case studies in the book focus on key 'sites' in political culture: in France, on the extreme right, the cinema, the impact of media personalities and changes of political discourse; in Germany, on the decline of regional identities, the emergence of specific issues and the concern of political parties with the effectiveness of language. This interdisciplinary study provides new insights into the way French and German people...

The Origins of Post-War German Politics (RLE: German Politics)

The Origins of Post-War German Politics (RLE: German Politics) by Barbara MarshallThis book discusses how the allies worked towards determining the political future of a defeated Germany. It oulines how the deep ideological divisions within the allied forces ultimately resulted in the division of Germany and discusses how indigenous political movements were impeded by a deeply felt distrust of German nationalism in all organisations. Yes these considerations are seen in the context of the masive logistical problems faced by the allies in restoring order to the chaos of war-ravaged Germany. Focusing on the experiences of Hanover, the book illustrates how post-war German politics...

Ideology and Interests in the German State (RLE: German Politics)

Ideology and Interests in the German State (RLE: German Politics) by Gary BonhamThis book addresses major theoretical issues in the fields of public administration and comparative politics. It discusses the role which ideology played as a unifying force for at least parts of the German state bureaucracy in Wilhelmine Germany . The examination of a modernizing ideology in the German case is useful for an understanding of the political dynamics of state-led modernization and industrial strategy in many contemporary societies and the author explains political behaviour and relations in Germany in general terms that are universally relevant.

Germany in the Twentieth Century (RLE: German Politics)

Germany in the Twentieth Century (RLE: German Politics) by David ChildsThe book traces the development of Germany from the Kaiser's Reich in the 1870s to the reunited democratic state led by Helmut Kohl in the 1990s.

The Green Movement in West Germany (RLE: German Politics)

The Green Movement in West Germany (RLE: German Politics) by Elim PapadakisThe Green Movement in Germany is widely regarded as one of the most powerful expressions of popular opposition to government policies. A broad analysis of this powerful group is made in this book, showing that the origins of the movement relate to the general protests against industrialisation in the nineteenth century and also to more recent forms of protest. The author assesses the challenge posed by the Green Movement to established groups and organisations both in proposing alternative policies and in a long run of electoral successes. The Green Movement has evidently had a great impact...
