Lions and Lambs: Conflict in Weimar and the Creation of Post-Nazi Germany

Noah Benezra Strote

Lions and Lambs: Conflict in Weimar and the Creation of Post-Nazi Germany by Noah Benezra StroteA bold new interpretation of Germany's democratic transformation in the twentieth century, focusing on the generation that shaped the post-Nazi reconstruction

Not long after the horrors of World War II and the Holocaust, Germans rebuilt their shattered country and emerged as one of the leading nations of the Western liberal world. In his debut work, Noah Strote analyzes this remarkable turnaround and challenges the widely held perception that the Western Allies-particularly the United States-were responsible for Germany's transformation. Instead, Strote draws from never-before-seen material...

Karl Marx and Babasaheb Ambedkar: A Comparative Study

R. K. Kshirsagar

Karl Marx and Babasaheb Ambedkar: A Comparative Study by R. K. KshirsagarThis book reveals the thought of Karl Marx and Babasaheb Ambedkar in their real perspective and attempts to compare their thoughts rationally and judiciously. It is, however based on original text by Karl Marx and Babasaheb Ambedkar and learned commentaries by renowned authors on their thoughts. The present generation is presumably in great dilemma as to which philosophy would liberate them from the precarious situation cropped up due to advancing globalization and privatization, at one hand and grinding poverty , and fast spreading terrorism, at the other. People are in search of a viable philosophy...

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,...

Every day, tens of thousands of lobbyists in Washington and Brussels are working to protect and promote their interests in the policymaking process.

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...

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.

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

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...

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

Chih-Yu Shih

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.

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

Ibrahim Fraihat

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.

Language and Identity Politics: A Cross-Atlantic Perspective

Christina Spati

Language and Identity Politics: A Cross-Atlantic Perspective by Christina Spati In an increasingly multicultural world, the relationship between language and identity remains a complicated and often fraught subject for most societies. 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

Harold A. Trinkunas

Crafting Civilian Control of the Military in Venezuela: A Comparative Perspective by Harold A. TrinkunasUnlike most other emerging South American democracies, Venezuela has not succumbed to a successful military coup d'etat during four decades of democratic rule. 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.

Trinkunas first focuses...

Eroding Military Influence in Brazil: Politicians Against Soldiers

Wendy Hunter

Eroding Military Influence in Brazil: Politicians Against Soldiers by Wendy HunterWendy Hunter explores civil-military relations in Brazil following the transition to civilian leadership in 1985. 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...

Very British Rebels? The Culture and Politics of Ulster Loyalism

James White McAuley

Very British Rebels? 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....
