Representative Democracy: Legislators and their Constituents

Michael L. Mezey

Representative Democracy: Legislators and their Constituents by Michael L. MezeyAlthough we tend to use the terms "representative democracy" and "democracy" as synonyms, Michael Mezey maintains that they are not. Democracy means that the people govern; representative democracy means that the people elect others to govern for them. This raises the question of the extent to which representative government approximates democracy-a question that turns on the relationship between representatives and those whom they represent. Mezey reviews the literature on the meaning of representationand its relationship to issues of citizen control. In the empirical sections that follow,...

For that reason, our unit of analysis has to be the state, meaning a government or a politically organized body. With the rise of civil societyat both national and international levels, applying the international/global governance theory should...

Beyond Realism: Human Security in India and Pakistan in the Twenty-First Century

Rekha Datta

Beyond Realism: Human Security in India and Pakistan in the Twenty-First Century by Rekha DattaAs the world is changing, many scholars, analysts, and policy makers agree that even as governments need to confront external threats, creating sustainable domestic environments is imperative as a policy priority. As events surrounding September 11, 2001continue to remind us, marginalized sections of the population can become breeding grounds for dissatisfaction, disenchantment, and eventually, targets for terrorist groups. Throughout the cold war period, South Asia served as a strategic region in the bilateral rivalry between the United States and the former Soviet Union, coupled with China's...

Seeking Changes: Political Development in Contemporary China

Authors Various

Seeking Changes: Political Development in Contemporary China by Authors VariousChina's revolutionary attempt to transition to socialism was an economic disaster. Since adopting elements of an open market policy in the 1970s, China has doubled its GDP every decade, and has lifted 400 million people out of absolute poverty. But as renowned social historian Arif Dirlik keenly observed that in China, "Post-socialism is of necessity also post-capitalist." As the wealth of the country continues to accumulate, the Chinese Communist Party is increasingly concerned about updating the tenets of Karl Marx's ideology to create a uniquely Chinese-styled Harmonious Socialist Society....

Full Spectrum Diplomacy and Grand Strategy

John Lenczowski

Full Spectrum Diplomacy and Grand Strategy by John LenczowskiFull Spectrum Diplomacy and Grand Strategy: Reforming the Structure and Culture of U.S. Foreign Policy, by John Lenczowski, offers a solution to one of the greatest weaknesses in U.S. foreign policy that has exacerbated the unprecedented anti-Americanism of recent years-the U.S. Government's inability to conduct the "full spectrum" of diplomatic arts and to integrate them with the other arts of statecraft at the level of grand strategy. The analysis presents a critique of how the Department of State's focus on traditional, government-to-government diplomacy comes at the expense of public diplomacy....

Political Campaigning, Elections and the Internet

Darren Lilleker & Nigel Jackson

Political Campaigning, Elections and the Internet by Darren Lilleker & Nigel Jackson

The Internet first played a minor role in the 1992 U.S. Presidential election, and has gradually increased in importance so that it is central to election campaign strategy. However, election campaigners have, until very recently, focused on Web 1.0: websites and email.

Political Campaigning, Elections and the Internet contextualises the US Presidential campaign of 2008 within three other contests: France 2007; Germany 2009; and the UK 2010. In offering a comparative history of the use of the Internet as an election tool, the authors are able to test the optimistic view that the Internet is transforming...

Never Allow a Crisis to Go to Waste: Barack Obama and the Evolution of American Socialism

Never Allow a Crisis to Go to Waste: Barack Obama and the Evolution of American Socialism by Bart Depalma

Majorities of Americans believe Barack Obama is a socialist and that the President's policies are moving the United States towards socialism. But very few can explain why they share this belief.

Never Allow A Crisis To Go To Waste: Barack Obama and the Evolution of American Socialism demonstrates why the American people are right.

Author and attorney Bart DePalma explains how socialism evolved after the collapse of the Soviet Union from classical state ownership of the means of production into a new asymmetric form - using progressive tools to achieve socialist ends, while misrepresenting the...

The Politics of Welfare State Reform in Continental Europe

Silja Hausermann

The Politics of Welfare State Reform in Continental Europe by Silja HausermannThis book challenges existing theories of welfare state change by analyzing pension reforms in France, Germany, and Switzerland between 1970 and 2004. It explains why all three countries were able to adopt far-reaching reforms, adapting their pension regimes to both financial austerity and new social risks. In a radical departure from the neo-institutionalist emphasis on policy stability, the book argues that socio-structural change has led to a multidimensional pension reform agenda. A variety of cross-cutting lines of political conflict, emerging from the transition to a post-industrial economy,...

Latin American Party Systems

Herbert Kitschelt & Kirk A. Hawkins & Juan Pablo Luna

Latin American Party Systems by Herbert Kitschelt & Kirk A. Hawkins & Juan Pablo LunaPolitical parties provide a crucial link between voters and politicians. This link takes a variety of forms in democratic regimes, from the organization of political machines built around clientelistic networks to the establishment of sophisticated programmatic parties. Latin American Party Systems provides a novel theoretical argument to account for differences in the degree to which political party systems in the region were programmatically structured at the end of the twentieth century. Based on a diverse array of indicators and surveys of party legislators and public opinion, the book argues...
