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

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...

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.

Dictators and Democrats: Masses, Elites, and Regime Change

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.

The International Politics of the Persian Gulf

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...

The Polarized Congress: The Post-Traditional Procedure of Its Current Struggles

The Polarized Congress: The Post-Traditional Procedure of Its Current Struggles by Charles TieferThis book challenges the easy assumption that Congressional procedure is descending into nothing more than chaotic brutishness or eternal stalemate. Instead, it explains the transformation of the traditional model about "how a bill becomes a law" before 2000, into the new current model in which Congress acts very differently.

Radical Right-Wing Populist Parties in Western Europe: Into the Mainstream?

Radical Right-Wing Populist Parties in Western Europe: Into the Mainstream? by Tjitske Akkerman

Radical right-wing populist parties, such as Geert Wilders' Party for Freedom, Marine Le Pen's National Front or Nigel Farage's UKIP, are becoming increasingly influential in Western European democracies. Their electoral support is growing, their impact on policy-making is substantial, and in recent years several radical right-wing populist parties have assumed office or supported minority governments.

Are these developments the cause and/or consequence of the mainstreaming of radical right-wing populist parties? Have radical right-wing populist parties expanded their issue profiles, moderated...

Intelligence Governance and Democratisation: A Comparative Analysis of the Limits of Reform

Intelligence Governance and Democratisation: A Comparative Analysis of the Limits of Reform by Peter Gill

This book analyses changes in intelligence governance and offers a comparative analysis of intelligence democratisation.

Within the field of Security Sector Reform (SSR), academics have paid significant attention to both the police and military. The democratisation of intelligence structures that are at the very heart of authoritarian regimes, however, have been relatively ignored. The central aim of this book is to develop a conceptual framework for the specific analytical challenges posed by intelligence as a field of governance. Using examples from Latin America and Europe, it examines the...
