A Clen House? Studies of Corruption in Sweden

Andreas Bergh & Gissur Erlingsson

A Clen House? Studies of Corruption in Sweden by Andreas Bergh & Gissur ErlingssonIn virtually all popular indices and scales measuring bribery and dishonesty on a national level, Sweden performs strongly with its quality of rule of law and absence of corruption. But does this automatically imply that this "least sickly" patient can be declared perfectly healthy? By extensively reviewing existing research and consulting various sources of data, the authors of "A Clean House?" attempt to unpack the Swedish case. What do we know about corruption in Sweden, and what can be said of such affairs over time in the country? The four scholars of political science demonstrate that...

National Health Insurance in the United States and Canada: Race, Territory, and the Roots of Difference

Gerard W. Boychuk

National Health Insurance in the United States and Canada: Race, Territory, and the Roots of Difference by Gerard W. Boychuk

After World War II, the United States and Canada, two countries that were very similar in many ways, struck out on radically divergent paths to public health insurance. Canada developed a universal single-payer system of national health care, while the United States opted for a dual system that combines public health insurance for low-income and senior residents with private, primarily employer-provided health insurance-or no insurance-for everyone else. In National Health Insurance in the United States and Canada, Gerard W. Boychuk probes the historical development of health care in each country,...

Brussels Versus the Beltway: Advocacy in the United States and the European Union

Christine Mahoney

Brussels Versus the Beltway: Advocacy in the United States and the European Union by Christine Mahoney

This book presents the first large-scale study of lobbying strategies and outcomes in the United States and the European Union, two of the most powerful political systems in the world. Every day, tens of thousands of lobbyists in Washington and Brussels are working to protect and promote their interests in the policymaking process. Policies emanating from these two spheres have global impacts-they set global standards, they influence global markets, and they determine global politics. Armed with extensive new data, Christine Mahoney challenges the conventional stereotypes that attribute any...

Disaster and the Politics of Intervention

Andrew Lakoff

Disaster and the Politics of Intervention by Andrew Lakoff

Government plays a critical role in mitigating individual and collective vulnerability to disaster. Through measures such as disaster relief, infrastructure development, and environmental regulation, public policy is central to making societies more resilient. However, the recent drive to replace public institutions with market mechanisms has challenged governmental efforts to manage collective risk. The contributors to this volume analyze the respective roles of the public and private sectors in the management of catastrophic risk, addressing questions such as: How should homeland security...

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...

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,...

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.
