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

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...

The Right in Latin America: Elite Power, Hegemony and the Struggle for the State

The Right in Latin America: Elite Power, Hegemony and the Struggle for the State by Barry Cannon

Most current analysis on Latin American politics has been directed at examining the shift to the left in the region. Very little attention, however, has been paid to the reactions of the right to this phenomenon. What kind of discursive, policy, and strategic responses have emerged among the right in Latin America as a result of this historic turn to the left? Have there been any shifts in attitudes to inequality and poverty as a result of the successes of the left in those areas? How has the right responded strategically to regain the political initiative from the left? And what implications...

A Century of Arab Politics: From the Arab Revolt to the Arab Spring

A Century of Arab Politics: From the Arab Revolt to the Arab Spring by Bruce Maddy-WeitzmanFrom the “Great Arab Revolt” against Ottoman rule in World War I to the upheavals of the Arab Spring, this text analyzes a century of modern Arab history through the lens of three intertwined notions: the idea of a single Arab nation, the reality of multiple Arab states, and the competition between them over both concrete and symbolic interests. These concepts are presented against the background of Great Power involvement in the region, regional issues such as the Arab-Israeli conflict and the Iran-Iraq war, and the rise of political Islam.

Democracy (Made in Taiwan): The 'Success' State as a Political Theory

Democracy (Made in Taiwan): The 'Success' State as a Political Theory by Chih-Yu ShihWhile political scientists generally see Taiwan as a success state because of its economic modernization and political democratization, this book reinterprets Taiwan's success from the Confucian and postcolonial perspectives. Democracy (Made in Taiwan) uncovers the hegemonic construction of the myth of the "success state" and challenges political scientists to abandon both the liberal-centrism and state-centrism prevailing in the literature of democratization.

Based almost entirely on Russian sources, Vladimir Putin and the New World Order argues that to understand Russian foreign policymaking, international situations must be viewed through the prism of Russian analysts and officials.

Unfinished Revolutions: Yemen, Libya, and Tunisia after the Arab Spring

Unfinished Revolutions: Yemen, Libya, and Tunisia after the Arab Spring by Ibrahim FraihatPost-revolution states often find that once dictators have been deposed, other problems arise, such as political polarization and the threat of civil war. A respected commentator on Middle Eastern politics, Ibrahim Fraihat examines three countries grappling with political transitions in the wake of the Arab Spring: Yemen, Libya, and Tunisia. Drawing on extensive research and interviews, Fraihat argues that to attain enduring peace and stability, post-revolution states must engage in inclusive national reconciliation processes with the support of women, civil society, and tribes.

Reputation and International Cooperation: Sovereign Debt across Three Centuries

Reputation and International Cooperation: Sovereign Debt across Three Centuries by Michael Tomz

How does cooperation emerge in a condition of international anarchy? Michael Tomz sheds new light on this fundamental question through a study of international debt across three centuries. Tomz develops a reputational theory of cooperation between sovereign governments and foreign investors. He explains how governments acquire reputations in the eyes of investors, and argues that concerns about reputation sustain international lending and repayment.

Tomz's theory generates novel predictions about the dynamics of cooperation: how investors treat first-time borrowers, how access to credit evolves...

How Armies Respond to Revolutions and Why

How Armies Respond to Revolutions and Why by Zoltan Barany

We know that a revolution's success largely depends on the army's response to it. But can we predict the military's reaction to an uprising? How Armies Respond to Revolutions and Why argues that it is possible to make a highly educated guess??"and in some cases even a confident prediction??"about the generals' response to a domestic revolt if we know enough about the army, the state it is supposed to serve, the society in which it exists, and the external environment that affects its actions. Through concise case studies of modern uprisings in Iran, China, Eastern Europe, Burma, and the Arab...

Language and Identity Politics: A Cross-Atlantic Perspective

The growing political salience of questions relating to language is evident not only in the expanded implementation of new policies and legislation, but also in heated public debates about national unity, collective identities, and the rights of linguistic minorities. By taking a comprehensive approach that considers both the inclusive and exclusive dimensions of linguistic identity across Europe and North America, the studies assembled here...

Crafting Civilian Control of the Military in Venezuela: A Comparative Perspective

What drives armed forces to follow the orders of elected leaders? And how do emerging democracies gain that control over their military establishments? Harold Trinkunas answers these questions in an examination of Venezuela's transition to democracy following military rule and its attempts to institutionalize civilian control of the military over the past sixty years, a period that included three regime changes.

Eroding Military Influence in Brazil: Politicians Against Soldiers

She documents a marked, and surprising, decline in the political power of the armed forces, even as they have remained involved in national policy making. To account for the success of civilian politicians, Hunter invokes rational-choice theory in arguing that politicians will contest even powerful forces in order to gain widespread electoral support.

Many observers expected Brazil's fledgling democracy to remain under the firm direction of the military, which had tightly controlled...

The Culture and Politics of Ulster Loyalism by James White McAuleyChallenging traditional narrow views, this unique work proposes to rethink and reinterpret Ulster loyalism from the beginning of the "Troubles" to the present day, by tracing its religious, paramilitary, political, and community influences.

The work examines the core values of loyalist communities, the roots of violence, and the shift toward peaceful coexistence with former enemies. Also discussed are the DUP's claims that it represents loyalism's "true voice" along with the complex and varying degrees of commitment to the Crown, the Protestant Faith, and the British governance of Northern Ireland....

Why Nations Realign: Foreign Policy Restructuring in the Postwar World

Why Nations Realign: Foreign Policy Restructuring in the Postwar World by K. J.

Using a common analystical framework, the authors examine Bhutan, Burma, Canada, Child, China and Tanzania. They distinguish between piecemeal foreign policy change and adaptation, and the fundamental re-ordering of foreign policy. Their analysis underlines the extent to which non-military and sometimes imagined threats, such as dependency and external economic and cultural penetration, can constitute an important cause of radical...

Radical Right Parties in Central and Eastern Europe: Mainstream Party Competition and Electoral Fortune

Radical Right Parties in Central and Eastern Europe: Mainstream Party Competition and Electoral Fortune by Bartek Pytlas

In Central and Eastern Europe, radical right actors significantly impact public debates and mainstream policy agenda. But despite this high discursive influence, the electoral fortune of radical right parties in the region is much less stable. It has been suggested that this may be due to the fact that mainstream competitors increasingly co-opt issues which are fundamental for the radical right. However, the extent to which such tactics play a role in radical right electoral success and failure is still a subject for debate.

This book is the first to provide a systematic theoretical framework...

Democratic Latin America

Democratic Latin America by Craig Arceneaux

Drawing on new approaches in comparative politics, Democratic Latin America focuses on analyzing political institutions as a way to assess broader trends in the region's politics, including the rise of democracy.

The text looks at the major institutions-executive, legislature, judiciary, military, and more-in 18 democratic countries to not only provide an expansive view of politics in Latin America but to also facilitate cross-national comparison. Democratic Latin America uniquely surveys the "what" of the region's politics as well as the "why" and "how" to help students critically consider Latin...

The Political Economy of Border Drawing: Arranging Legality in European Labor Migration Policies

The Political Economy of Border Drawing: Arranging Legality in European Labor Migration Policies by Regine PaulThe conditions for non-EU migrant workers to gain legal entry to Britain, France, and Germany are at the same time similar and quite different. To explain this variation this book compares the fine-grained legal categories for migrant workers in each country, and examines the interaction of economic, social, and cultural rationales in determining migrant legality. Rather than investigating the failure of borders to keep unauthorized migrants out, the author highlights the different policies of each country as "border-drawing" actions. Policymakers draw lines between different migrant groups,...

The Hidden History of Crime, Corruption, and States

The Hidden History of Crime, Corruption, and States by Renate BridenthalRenowned historical sociologist Charles Tilly wrote many years ago that "banditry, piracy, gangland rivalry, policing, and war-making all belong on the same continuum." This volume pursues the idea by revealing how lawbreakers and lawmakers have related to one another on the shadowy terrains of power over wide stretches of time and space. Illicit activities and forces have been more important in state building and state maintenance than conventional histories have acknowledged. Covering vast chronological and global terrain, this book traces the contested and often overlapping boundaries between...

The Condition of States

The Condition of States by Cornelia Navari

Rejecting the view that states may be studied in isolation from one another, and proceeding from the assumption that political theory and international theory are part of a single continuum, this collection of essays employs both comparative method and an international perspective to assess what is happening to the chief political form of our time. In doing so, it questions recent major approaches of European and American scholarship which have tended to view the state as a formation serving capital, interests or classes. The approach of these essays is legal and constitutional, highlighting...

The Reason of States: A Study in International Political Theory

The Reason of States: A Study in International Political Theory by Michael DonelanOriginally published in 1978, this book examines how the states-system grew over generations, first within Europe, then world wide and how the idea of the state came to monopolise our vision of the world. It discusses the grounds for the division of humanity into separate states in reason and history and whether or not we can use terms like 'obligation' and 'justice' in seeking to understand our relations with people of other states.

The Politics of Place and the Limits of Redistribution

The Politics of Place and the Limits of Redistribution by Melissa Ziegler RogersNumerous scholars have noticed that certain political institutions, including federalism, majoritarian electoral systems, and presidentialism, are linked to lower levels of income redistribution. This book offers a political geography explanation for those observed patterns. Each of these institutions is strongly shaped by geography and provides incentives for politicians to target their appeals and government resources to localities. Territorialized institutions also shape citizens' preferences in ways that can undermine the national coalition in favor of redistribution. Moreover, territorial...
