THE FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY: Lessons From the Past and Present To Guide us on our Path Forward

Steve Zolno

THE FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY: Lessons From the Past and Present To Guide us on our Path Forward by Steve ZolnoWhat is democracy and where did it come from? Is it a new development or was it always present in human society? And perhaps the most important question: what can we do to preserve and strengthen democracy among the forces that oppose it? In this book we explore trends throughout history that have brought democratic - and undemocratic - government to people wherever civilization exists. We discuss where democracy has been most, and least, successful and why. But our most important task is to clarify what each of us can do, as politicians or ordinary citizens, to bring the benefits of democracy...

Globalization and Welfare Restructuring in China: The Authoritarianism That Listens?

Huisheng Shou

Globalization and Welfare Restructuring in China: The Authoritarianism That Listens? by Huisheng Shou

In the past few decades, the change in China's welfare system has been characterised by a balanced distribution of benefits across social sectors and the institutionalization of welfare redistribution. This process has occurred without significant political change that would empower politically disadvantaged groups such as the urban and rural poor. This book questions what has motivated the regime to redistribute welfare benefits through an institutionalized manner whilst its political structure remains largely unchanged.

By situating China within the broader context of East Asia and against...

Disability Rights Advocacy Online: Voice, Empowerment and Global Connectivity

Filippo Trevisan

Disability Rights Advocacy Online: Voice, Empowerment and Global Connectivity by Filippo Trevisan

Disability rights advocates in the United Kingdom and the United States recently embraced new media technologies in unexpected and innovative ways. This book sheds light on this process of renewal and asks whether the digitalisation of disability rights advocacy can help re-configure political participation into a more inclusive experience for disabled Internet users, enhancing their stakes in democratic citizenship. Through the examination of social media content, Web link analysis, and interviews with leading figures in grassroots groups on both sides of the Atlantic, Filippo Trevisan reveals...

Muslim Democratic Parties in the Middle East: Economy and Politics of Islamist Moderation

A. Kadir Yildirim

Muslim Democratic Parties in the Middle East: Economy and Politics of Islamist Moderation by A. Kadir YildirimA.Kadir Yildirim and other scholars have used the term "Muslim Democrat" to describe moderate Islamist political parties, suggesting a parallel with Christian Democratic parties in Europe. These parties (MDPs) are marked by their adherence to a secular political regime, normative commitment to the rules of a democratic political system, and the democratic political representation of a religious identity. In this book, Yildirim draws on extensive field research in Turkey, Egypt, and Morocco to examine this phenomenon and assess the interaction of economic and political factors in the development...

Egypt beyond Tahrir Square

Bessma Momani

Egypt beyond Tahrir Square by Bessma MomaniOn January 25, 2011, the world's eyes were on Egypt's Tahrir Square as millions of people poured into the city center to call for the resignation of president Hosni Mubarak.

In this important and necessary volume, leading Egyptian academics and writers share their eyewitness experiences. They examine how events unfolded in relation to key social groups and institutions such as the military, police, labor, intellectuals,...

The Elements of Reconstruction

H. G. Wells

The Elements of Reconstruction by H. G. WellsThis book contains a series of articles contributed to "The Times" in July and August of 1916.

Contents include: "Introduction", "Science in education and industry", "Scientific agriculture and the nation's food", "The long view and labour", "Problems of political adaptation", "An imperial constitution", and...

The Politics of Institutional Choice: The Formation of the Russian State Duma

Steven S. Smith & Thomas F. Remington

The Politics of Institutional Choice: The Formation of the Russian State Duma by Steven S. Smith & Thomas F. Remington

Events in Russia since the late 1980s have created a rare opportunity to watch the birth of democratic institutions close at hand. Here Steven Smith and Thomas Remington provide the first intensive, theoretically grounded examination of the early development of the State Duma, the lower house of the Russian Federation's parliament created by the 1993 constitution. They offer an integrated account of the choices made by the newly elected members of the Duma in establishing basic operating arrangements: an agenda-setting governing body, a standing committee system, an electoral law, and a party...

Good Governance and Coalition Politics (PDP-Congress in Jammu & Kashmir)

M. M. Khajooria

Good Governance and Coalition Politics (PDP-Congress in Jammu & Kashmir) by M. M. Khajooria"Good governance and Coalition Politics" is a tale of two coalition governments of Jammu and Kashmir -(PDP-Congress(2002-2008) and NC-Congress ( 2008-2014)- prefaced by concept and contours of Good Governance in historical and philosophical contexts. The focus was on dynamic changes in the philosophy, structure, functions and goals of governance and the triangular relationship among state, society, and citizen that evolved during the last two centauries or so. The policy frame, processes and motivation informing the decision making on important issues were subjected to similar treatment. The...

Dictators and Democrats: Masses, Elites, and Regime Change

Stephan Haggard & Robert R. Kaufman

Dictators and Democrats: Masses, Elites, and Regime Change by Stephan Haggard & Robert R. Kaufman

From the 1980s through the first decade of the twenty-first century, the spread of democracy across the developing and post-Communist worlds transformed the global political landscape. What drove these changes and what determined whether the emerging democracies would stabilize or revert to authoritarian rule? Dictators and Democrats takes a comprehensive look at the transitions to and from democracy in recent decades. Deploying both statistical and qualitative analysis, Stephen Haggard and Robert Kaufman engage with theories of democratic change and advocate approaches that emphasize political...

The International Politics of the Persian Gulf

Mehran Kamrava

The International Politics of the Persian Gulf by Mehran KamravaFor much of the contemporary history of the Middle East, the Persian Gulf has stood at the center of the region's strategic significance. At the same time, the Gulf has been wracked by political instability and tension. As far back as the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Britain zeroed in on the Persian Gulf as a critical passageway to its crown jewel, India, and entered into protectorate agreements with local ruling families, thus bestowing on them international legitimacy and, eventually, the resources and support necessary to ascend to kingships. Today, the region is undergoing...

Summary of Why the Right Went Wrong: by E.J. Dionne | Includes Analysis by Instaread Summaries

Summary of Why the Right Went Wrong by E.J. Dionne | Includes Analysis

Preview:


Why the Right Went Wrong by E.J. Dionne Jr. is a history and analysis of the conservative movement from the early 1960s to 2015. Conservative polarization and radicalization did not happen in response to the election of President Barack Obama in 2008. Instead, the roots of the radical conservative Tea Party movement of 2010, and the violently nativist 2016 campaign of Donald Trump, stretch back to Barry Goldwater's unsuccessful 1964 Republican campaign.

Goldwater??s conservatism was based on two central themes. The...
