The Oxford handbook of historical institutionalism
edited by Orfeo Fioretos, Tulia G. Falleti and Adam Sheingate
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2016
The Oxford Handbook of Historical Institutionalism offers an authoritative and accessible state-of-the-art analysis of the historical institutionalism research tradition in Political Science. Devoted to the study of how temporal processes and events influence the origin and transformation of institutions that govern political and economic relations, historical institutionalism has grown considerably in the last two decades. With its attention to past, present, and potential future contributions to the research tradition, the volume represents an essential reference point for those interested in historical institutionalism. Written in accessible style by leading scholars, thirty-eight chapters detail the contributions of historical institutionalism to an expanding array of topics in the study of comparative, American, European, and international politics.

Finks : how the CIA tricked the world's best writers
Whitney, Joel, (Journalist), author
New York, NY : OR Books, [2016]
Introduction. A lit'r'y coup -- Graduates -- The responsibility of editors -- Pasternak, the CIA, and Feltrinelli -- 'The Paris Review' goes to Moscow -- Did the CIA censor its magazines? -- James Baldwin's protest -- Into India -- The US coup in Guatemala -- Cuba: a portrait by Figueres, Plimpton, Hemingway, García Márquez, part 1 -- Cuba: a portrait by Plimpton, Hemingway and García Márquez, part 2 -- Tools rush in: Pablo Neruda, Mundo Nuevo and Keith Botsford -- The vital center cannot hold -- Blowback -- Coda. Afghanistan.

"When news broke that the CIA had colluded with literary magazines to produce cultural propaganda throughout the Cold War, a debate began that has never been resolved. The story continues to unfold, with the reputations of some of America's best-loved literary figures-- including Peter Matthiessen, George Plimpton, and Richard Wright-- tarnished as their work for the intelligence agency has come to light. Finks is a tale of two CIAs, and how they blurred the line between propaganda and literature. One CIA created literary magazines that promoted American and European writers and cultural freedom, while the other toppled governments, using assassination and censorship as political tools. Defenders of the 'cultural' CIA argue that it should have been lauded for boosting interest in the arts and freedom of thought, but the two CIAs had the same undercover goals, and shared many of the same methods: deception, subterfuge and intimidation. Finks demonstrates how the good-versus-bad CIA is a false divide, and that the cultural Cold Warriors again and again used anti-Communism as a lever to spy relentlessly on leftists, and indeed writers of all political inclinations, and thereby pushed U.S. democracy a little closer to the Soviet model of the surveillance state."--

The Athenian Constitution written in the School of Aristotle
Aristotle, author
Liverpool : Liverpool University Press, 2017
This book is an edition fo the Athenian Constituion, the only one to survive of 158 Constitutions written in the school of Aristotle in the fourth century B.C., of which is a text on papyrus was found at the end of the nineteenth century. Based on an edition commissioned by the Foundazione Lorenzo Valla in Italy, it provides an introduction, a re-edited Greek text with a facing translation, and a commentary. The editor has been engaged with this text throughout his working life, and published a large commentary on it in 1981 and a Penguin Classics translation of it in 1984; since then scholarly advances have continued, and he has been able to take advantage of them to bring the material in this book up to date. The translation aims at an accurate rendering of the Greek text; the commentary is based on the translation, and should be accessible to readers with little or no knowledge of Greek.

Human rights in Africa
Ibhawoh, Bonny, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Human rights have a deep and tumultuous history that culminates in the age of rights we live in today, but where does Africa's story fit in with this global history? Here, Bonny Ibhawoh maps this story and offers a comprehensive and interpretative history of human rights in Africa. Rather than a tidy narrative of ruthless violators and benevolent protectors, this book reveals a complex account of indigenous African rights traditions embodied in the wisdom of elders and sages; of humanitarians and abolitionists who marshalled arguments about natural rights and human dignity in the cause of anti-slavery; of the conflictual encounters between natives and colonists in the age of Empire and the "civilizing mission"; of nationalists and anti-colonialists who deployed an emergent lexicon of universal human rights to legitimize longstanding struggles for self-determination, and of dictators and dissidents locked in struggles over power in the era of independence and constitutional rights.

Markets, morals, politics : jealousy of trade and the history of political thought
edited by Béla Kapossy, Isaac Nakhimovsky, Sophus A. Reinert, Richard Whatmore
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2018
From Rousseau to Kant / Richard Tuck -- Marx and material culture: Istvan Hont and the history of scholarship / Peter N. Miller -- Sociability in sacred historical perspective 1650-1800 / John Robertson -- Commerce, credit and sovereignty: the nation-state as historical critique / G.A. Pocock -- Revision, reorganisation and reform: Prussia 1790-1820 / Keith Tribe -- Millennium and enlightenment: Robert Owen and the second coming of the truth / Gareth Stedman Jones -- Liberty, autonomy and republican historiography: civic humanism in context: Hannah Arendt, Hans Baron and the Atlantic republican tradition / Michael Sonenscher -- Modern representative democracy: intellectual genealogy and drawbacks / Pasquale Pasquino -- Identification and the politics of envy / Raymond Geuss -- Why we need a global history of political thought / John Dunn.

When Istvan Hont died in 2013, the world lost a giant of intellectual history. A leader of the Cambridge School of Political Thought, Hont argued passionately for a global-historical approach to political ideas. To better understand the development of liberalism, he looked not only to the works of great thinkers but also to their reception and use amid revolution and interstate competition. His innovative program of study culminated in the landmark 2005 book Jealousy of Trade, which explores the birth of economic nationalism and other social effects of expanding eighteenth-century markets. Markets, Morals, and Politics brings together a celebrated cast of Hont's contemporaries to assess his influence, ideas and methods. Richard Tuck, John Pocock, John Dunn, Raymond Geuss, Gareth Stedman Jones, Michael Sonenscher, John Robertson, Keith Tribe, Pasquale Pasquino, and Peter N. Miller contribute original essays on themes Hont treated with penetrating insight.--

Good government : democracy beyond elections
Rosanvallon, Pierre, 1948- author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2018
Introduction: From one democracy to another -- I. Executive power. Consecration of the law and demotion of the executive ; The cult of impersonality and its metamorphoses ; The age of rehabilitation ; Two temptations -- II. The presidentialization of democracies. The pioneering experiments: 1848 and Weimar ; From Gaullist exception to standard model ; Unavoidable and unsatisfactory ; Limiting illiberalism -- III. A democracy of appropriation. The governed and their governors ; Legibility ; Responsibility ; Responsiveness -- IV. A democracy of trust. The good ruler in historical perspective ; Truthfulness ; Integrity -- Conclusion: The second democratic revolution.

Few would disagree that Western democracies are experiencing a crisis of representation. In the United States, gerrymandering and concentrated political geographies have placed the Congress and state legislatures in a stranglehold that is often at odds with public opinion. Campaign financing ensures that only the affluent have voice in legislation. Europeans, meanwhile, increasingly see the European Union as an anti-democratic body whose "diktats" have no basis in popular rule. The response, however, has not been an effective pursuit of better representation. In Good Government, Pierre Rosanvallon examines the long history of the alternative to which the public has gravitated: the empowered executive. Rosanvallon argues that, faced with everyday ineptitude in governance, people become attracted to strong leaders and bold executive action. If these fail, they too often want even stronger personal leadership. Whereas nineteenth-century liberals and reformers longed for parliamentary sovereignty, nowadays few contest the "imperial presidency." Rosanvallon traces this history from the Weimar Republic to Charles De Gaulle's "exceptional" presidency to the Bush-Cheney concentration of executive power. Europeans rebelling against the technocratic EU and Americans fed up with the "administrative state" have turned to charismatic figures, from Donald Trump to Viktor Orbán, who tout personal strength as their greatest asset. This is not just a right-wing phenomenon, though, as liberal contentment with Obama's drone war demonstrates. Rosanvallon makes clear that contemporary "presidentialism" may reflect the particular concerns of the moment, but its many precursors demonstrate that democracy has always struggled with tension between popular government and concentrated authority.--

Castillo -- Threatening proliferation: the goldilocks principle of bargaining with nuclear latency / Tristan Volpe -- Conclusion / Kelly M. Greenhill and Peter Krause.

"A state's power to compel or deter other states to either act or refrain from acting has been a foundational source of world politics since the time of Thucydides. Yet the specific features of deterrence and compellence constantly change in accordance with historical development. In our own lifetimes, for instance, the rising significance of non-state actors and the increasing influence of regional powers have dramatically transformed international politics since the height of the Cold War. Yet much of the existing literature on deterrence and compellence continues to draw, whether implicitly or explicitly, upon assumptions and precepts formulated in a state-centric, bipolar world. Although contemporary coercion frequently features multiple coercers targeting state and non-state adversaries with non-military instruments of persuasion, most literature on coercion still focuses primarily on cases where a single state is trying to coerce another single state via traditional military means. In The Power to Hurt, the leading international relations scholars Kelly M. Greenhill and Peter Krause have gathered together an eminent cast of contributors (e.g., Bob Art, Dan Drezner, Alex Downes, Erik Gartzke, and others) to produce what promises to be a field-shaping work on one of IR's most essential subjects: coercion, whether in the form of compellence, deterrence, or a mix of the two. The volume moves beyond these traditional premises and examines the critical issue of coercion in the 21st century, capturing fresh theoretical and policy relevant developments and drawing upon data and cases from across time and around the globe" --

Authoritarianism and the elite origins of democracy
Albertus, Michael, 1983- author
Cambridge, UK : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Introduction -- Elites and the causes and consequences of democracy -- Constitutionals as elite deal making: content and trends -- Evidence on the causes and consequences of democracy -- Unraveling the deal: constitutional annulments and amendments under elite-biased democracy -- Sweden: from agrarian oligarchy to progressive democracy -- Chile: from authoritarian legacies to a new dawn? -- Colonial and occupier legacies in new democracies -- Conclusion.

This book argues that - in terms of institutional design, the allocation of power and privilege, and the lived experiences of citizens - democracy often does not restart the political game after displacing authoritarianism. Democratic institutions are frequently designed by the outgoing authoritarian regime to shield incumbent elites from the rule of law and give them an unfair advantage over politics and the economy after democratization. Authoritarianism and the Elite Origins of Democracy systematically documents and analyzes the constitutional tools that outgoing authoritarian elites use to accomplish these ends, such as electoral system design, legislative appointments, federalism, legal immunities, constitutional tribunal design, and supermajority thresholds for change. The study provides wide-ranging evidence for these claims using data that spans the globe and dates from 1800 to the present. Albertus and Menaldo also conduct detailed case studies of Chile and Sweden. In doing so, they explain why some democracies successfully overhaul their elite-biased constitutions for more egalitarian social contracts.

Governing irregular migration : bordering culture, labour, and security in Spain
Moffette, David, 1981- author
Vancouver : UBC Press, [2018]
List of abbreviations-- Acknowledgements-- Studying the governing of irregular migrations-- Early problematizations: "immigrants", "foreign workers", and "illegals"-- Culture: race, religion, and the national imaginary-- Labour: flows, workers, and the labour market-- Security: threats, crime, and state sovereignty-- Multiscalar governance: border work, desirability, and deportability-- Governing immigration through probation-- Notes-- References-- Index.

"Differential access to border mobility is a central concern of contemporary politics. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the European Union, where external borders have been strengthened to prevent irregular entry and internal borders have been removed to promote free circulation. Governing Irregular Migration explores these dynamics of inclusion and exclusion at one of Europe's southern borders. Drawing on interviews with policymakers and on more than three decades of parliamentary debates, laws, and policy documents, David Moffette analyzes Spain's processes of immigration governance to reveal the complicated series of legal obstacles facing people with precarious immigration status. These migrants encounter long probationary periods during which they may be scrutinized and policed by individuals and organizations at multiple levels of government. Moffette shows that issues of culture, labour, and security intersect to create a regime of migration governance that is at once progressive and repressive, characterized by programs of mass regularization of migrants living in the country without authorization, but restrictive immigration policies and tight border control. A detailed empirical analysis of Spanish immigration policy, this book provides a thought-provoking and insightful contribution to conceptual debates in socio-legal, border, and citizenship studies."--

Los depredadores : la historia oscura del presidencialismo en México
Cruz, Francisco, 1956- author
Ciudad de México : Editorial Planeta Mexicana : 2017
"Al jefe del ejecutivo no se le crítica ni cuestiona. Así opera la política mexicana. Quienes viven bajo el cobijo del primer mandatario cuidarán hasta el mínimo detalle para no contradecirlo, con la esperanza de ser los próximos en habitar la residencia oficial de Los Pinos, la fortaleza del autoritarismo, donde se desdibuja el futuro de un país azotado por la crisis económica, el narcotráfico y la corrupción. En este contexto, Francisco Cruz y Marco A. Durán develan los episodios oscuros de quienes, bajo el amparo de ostentar la banda presidencial, han llevado a la nación a una debacle sin retorno. Porfirio Díaz vio en la inversión extranjera la salvación de México y lo entregó; con Alemán pasaría lo mismo; De la Madrid reforzaría la "necesidad" de desmantelarlo y venderlo; y Salinas simplemente lo vendió. Zedillo, Fox y Calderón los secundaron; y la administración peñista ha entregado lo que quedaba: minería, petróleo, agua, beneficios fiscales y leyes a modo. En Los depredadores, los autores presentan una indignante radiografía de los saqueos que ha sufrido el país durante los últimos sexenios y alertan sobre la urgente necesidad de cambios drásticos ante el fatal escenario que se avecina."--Publisher description.

Policy learning from Canada : reforming Scandinavian immigration and integration policies
Ugland, Trygve, 1969- author
Toronto ; University of Toronto Press, [2018]
"Focusing on the three Scandinavian countries, Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, Policy Learning from Canada is a systematic study of the international relevance of the Canadian immigration and integration policy model. To reveal how the Canadian immigration model has shaped the reform process in Scandinavia, Trygve Ugland critically examines public documents, including government proposals, documents from parliamentary debates, and reports by ad-hoc expert commissions, as well as letters from consulted agencies. Ugland's intensive studies on Canada's immigration and integration policies depict Canada not only as a model and inspiration to Scandinavian policy makers, but, in particular, as an intellectual stimulus for the rediscovery of labour immigration in Scandinavia during the 2000s. The study demonstrates that the Canadian model, often perceived as a product of unique circumstances, can be relevant in other countries."--

Intercultural deliberation and the politics of minority rights
Lowe-Walker, R. E., author
Vancouver : UBC Press, [2018]
Part I. The politics of paradox: a perennial problem : 1. Cultural difference and the minority rights paradox -- 2. Liberal and non-liberal worldviews -- Part 2. Intercultural deliberation: an innovative approach : 3. Deliberating difference -- 4. Public reason -- 5. Political identity -- 6. Intercultural deliberation and the minority rights paradox -- Conclusion.

Achieving socio-political cohesion in a community with significant ethnic, cultural, and religious diversity is a difficult challenge in contemporary liberal democracies. In the quest for neutrality, public policies and institutions shaped by the needs of the majority can inadvertently marginalize minority interests. Minority groups must therefore translate their desire for cultural recognition into terms that, ironically, often minimize cultural difference. Intercultural Deliberation and the Politics of Minority Rights examines the relationship between this minority rights paradox and cultural difference, building a complelling case for an inclusive approach to navigating minority rights claims. R.E. Lowe-Walker's intercultural deliberation is designed to mitigate the injustices imposed by majority norms. Instead of asking what the liberal state can tolerate, she asks how our understanding of difference affects our interpretation of minority claims, shifting the focus from how to limit difference toward inclusive deliberations. This important work thus serves as a measure of social justice and a vehicle for social change--back cover.

America classifies the immigrants : from Ellis Island to the 2020 census
Perlmann, Joel, author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2018
Creating and refining the list, 1898-1906 -- Immigration-especially European-through the lens of race -- Struggle over the list: the Jewish challenges and the federal defense, 1898-1910 -- The United States Immigration Commission, 1907-1911 -- Urging the list on the U.S. Census Bureau, 1908-1910 -- The census bureau goes its own way: race, nationality, mother tongue, 1910-1913 -- The second quota act, 1924 -- Immigration law for white races and others: three episodes -- From "race" to "ethnic group": organizing concepts in American studies of immigrants, 1890-1960 -- From social science to the federal bureaucracy?: limited diffusion of the "ethnic group" concept through the early 1950s -- Race and the immigrant in federal statistics after 1965.

When more than twenty million immigrants arrived in the United States between 1880 and 1920, the government attempted to classify them according to prevailing ideas about race and nationality. But this proved hard to do. Ideas about racial or national difference were slippery, contested, and yet consequential--were "Hebrews" a "race," a "religion," or a "people"? As Joel Perlmann shows, a self-appointed pair of officials created the government's 1897 List of Races and Peoples, which shaped exclusionary immigration laws, the wording of the U.S. Census, and federal studies that informed social policy. Its categories served to maintain old divisions and establish new ones. Across the five decades ending in the 1920s, American immigration policy built increasingly upon the belief that some groups of immigrants were desirable, others not. Perlmann traces how the debates over this policy institutionalized race distinctions--between whites and nonwhites, but also among whites--in immigration laws that lasted four decades. Despite a gradual shift among social scientists from "race" to "ethnic group" after the 1920s, the diffusion of this key concept among government officials and the public remained limited until the end of the 1960s. Taking up dramatic changes to racial and ethnic classification since then, America Classifies the Immigrants concentrates on three crucial reforms to the American Census: the introduction of Hispanic origin and ancestry (1980), the recognition of mixed racial origins (2000), and a rethinking of the connections between race and ethnic group (proposed for 2020).--

"This collection of short essays on texts in the history of democracy shows the diversity of ideas that contributed to the making of our present democratic moment. The selection of texts goes beyond the standard, Western-centric canonical history of democracy, with its beginnings in Ancient Athens and its climax in the French and American revolutions, recovering some of the significant body of democratic and anti-democratic thought in Latin America, Asia, and elsewhere. It includes discussions of well-known philosophers like Plato and Aristotle, but also of a variety of thinkers much less well known in English as writers on democracy: Al Farabi, Bolívar, Gandhi, Radishchev, Lenin, Sun Yat-sen, and many others. The essays thus de-center our understanding of the moments where the idea of democracy was articulated, rejected, and appropriated. Spanning antiquity to the present and global in scope, with contributions by key scholars of democracy from around the world, Democratic Moments is the ideal text for all students wishing to expand their understanding of the ways in which this contested concept has been understood."--

Can an illiberal antidemocratic party legitimately obtain power through democratic elections and amend liberalism and democracy out of the constitution entirely? In Weimar Germany, these theoretical questions were both practically and existentially relevant. By 1932, the Nazi and Communist parties combined held a majority of seats in parliament. Neither accepted the legitimacy of liberal democracy. Their only reason for participating democratically was to amend the constitution out of existence. 0This book analyses Carl Schmitt's state and constitutional theory and shows how it was conceived in response to the Weimar crisis. Right-wing and left-wing political extremists recognized that a path to legal revolution lay in the Weimar constitution's combination of democratic procedures, total neutrality toward political goals, and positive law. Schmitt's writings sought to address the unique problems posed by mass democracy. Schmitt's thought anticipated 'constrained' or 'militant' democracy, a type of constitution that guards against subversive expressions of popular sovereignty and whose mechanisms include the entrenchment of basic constitutional commitments and party bans. 0Schmitt's state and constitutional theory remains important: the problems he identified continue to exist within liberal democratic states. Schmitt offers democrats today a novel way to understand the legitimacy of liberal democracy and the limits of constitutional change.

The rights revolution revisited : institutional perspectives on the private enforcement of civil rights in the US
edited by Lynda G. Dodd
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2018
"The rights revolution in the United States consisted of both sweeping changes in constitutional doctrines and landmark legislative reform, followed by decades of innovative implementation in every branch of the federal government - Congress, agencies, and the courts. In recent years, a growing number of political scientists have sought to integrate studies of the rights revolution into accounts of the contemporary American state. [This book explores] the institutional dynamics, scope, and durability of the rights revolution. By offering an inter-branch analysis of the development of civil rights laws and policies that features the role of private enforcement, this volume enriches our understanding of the rise of the 'civil rights state' and its fate in the current era."--

The end of American world order
Acharya, Amitav, author
Cambridge, UK ; Polity Press, 2018
"The age of Western hegemony is over. Whether or not America itself declines or thrives under President Trump's leadership, the post-war liberal international order underpinned by US military, economic and ideological primacy and supported by global institutions serving its power and purpose, is coming to an end. But what will take its place? A Chinese world order? A re-constituted form of American hegemony? A regionalized system of global cooperation, including major and emerging powers? In this updated and extended edition of his widely acclaimed book, Amitav Acharya offers an incisive answer to this fundamental question. While the US will remain a major force in world affairs, he argues that it has lost the ability to shape world order after its own interests and image. As a result, the US will be one of a number of anchors including emerging powers, regional forces, and a concert of the old and new powers shaping a new world order. Rejecting labels such as multipolar, apolar, or G-Zero, Acharya likens the emerging system to a multiplex theatre, offering a choice of plots (ideas), directors (power), and action (leadership) under one roof. Finally, he reflects on the policies that the US, emerging powers and regional actors must pursue to promote stability in this decentred but interdependent, multiplex world. Written by a leading scholar of the international relations of the non-Western world, and rising above partisan punditry, this book represents a major contribution to debates over the post-American era"--

Democratic transition in the Muslim world : a global perspective
edited by Alfred Stepan
New York : Columbia University Press, [2018]
Why different democratization outcomes in Tunisia and Egypt? Islamic-Secular Party accommodations, constitutions, militaries, and the content of international assistance -- "Ennadha's democratic commitments, and capabilities : major evolutionary moments and choice" / Rachid Ghannouchi -- "The challenges of democratization in the Arab world : some reflections on the Egyptian case" / Carrie Rosefsky Wickham -- "Mutual accommodation between moderate Islamic and moderate secular activists" / Alfred Stepan -- "The roots of Egypt's constitutional catastrophe : the necessity of marrying analysis of context, process and text" / Nathan J.

Contributors to this book are particularly interested in expanding our understanding of what helps, or hurts, successful democratic transition attempts in countries with large Muslim populations. Crafting pro-democratic coalitions among secularists and Islamists presents a special obstacle that must be addressed by theorists and practitioners. The argument throughout the book is that such coalitions will not happen if potentially democratic secularists are part of what Al Stepan terms the authoritarian regime's "constituency of coercion" because they (the secularists) are afraid that free elections will be won by Islamists who threaten them even more than the existing secular authoritarian regime. Tunisia allows us to do analysis on this topic by comparing two "least similar" recent case outcomes: democratic success in Tunisia and democratic failure in Egypt. Tunisia also allows us to do an analysis of four "most similar" case outcomes by comparing the successful democratic transitions in Tunisia, Indonesia, Senegal, and the country with the second or third largest Muslim population in the world, India. Did these countries face some common challenges concerning democratization? Did all four of these successful cases in fact use some common policies that while democratic, had not normally been used in transitions in countries without significant numbers of Muslims? If so, did these policies help the transitions in Tunisia, Indonesia, Senegal and India? If they did, we should incorporate them in some way into our comparative theories about successful democratic transitions.

The corruption cure : how citizens and leaders can combat graft
Rotberg, Robert I., author
Princeton : Princeton University Press, [2017]
The nature of corruption -- Measuring and assessing corrupt behavior -- Strong laws and other watchdogs -- The virtue of anticorruption investigative commissions : Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia -- African investigative commissions : from integrity to interference -- The most improved : results -- Nordic, antipodean, and other exceptionalism : how did anticorruption take root? -- The gift of political will and leadership -- People power, social media, and corporate rigor -- Curing corruption : lessons, methods, and best practices -- What works : the anticorruption program.

"Corruption corrodes all facets of the world's political and corporate life, yet until now there was no one book that explained how best to battle it. The Corruption Cure provides many of the required solutions and ranges widely across continents and diverse cultures--putting some thirty-five countries under an anticorruption microscope--to show exactly how to beat back the forces of sleaze and graft. Robert Rotberg defines corruption theoretically and practically in its many forms, describes the available legal remedies, and examines how we know and measure corruption's presence. He looks at successful and unsuccessful attempts to employ anticorruption investigative commissions to combat political theft and venal behavior. He explores how the globe's least corrupt nations reached that exceptional goal. Another chapter discusses the role of civil society in limiting corruption. Expressed political will through determined leadership is a key factor in winning all of these battles. Rotberg analyzes the best-performing noncorrupt states to show how consummate leadership made a telling difference. He demonstrates precisely how determined leaders changed their wildly corrupt countries into paragons of virtue, and how leadership is making a significant difference in stimulating political anticorruption movements in places like India, Croatia, Honduras, and Lebanon. Rotberg looks at corporate corruption and how it can be checked, and also offers an innovative fourteen-step plan for nations that are ready to end corruption. Curing rampant corruption globally requires strengthened political leadership and the willingness to remake national political cultures. Tougher laws and better prosecutions are not enough. This book enables us to rethink the problem completely--and solve it once and for all."--

Convincing political stakeholders : successful lobbying through process competence in the complex decision-making system of the European Union
Joos, Klemens, author
Weinheim, Germany : Wiley, 2016
With the Treaty of Lisbon, which entered into force on 1 December 2009, the EU de facto became a state territory stretching from Portugal to Finland and from Ireland to Cyprus. The previous co-decision procedure was elevated to become the standard procedure ("ordinary legislative procedure"). For the players on the "European Union stage" - the EU member states, EU regions, companies, associations and organisations - this leads to the problem that the outcome of decision-making processes has become largely incalculable. The author, Klemens Joos, points out that, at the latest since the Treaty of Lisbon, successful lobbying in the complex decision-making system of the EU is much more the result of the intermesh of content competence (the four "classic instruments" of lobbying: corporate representative of-fices, associations, public affairs agencies, law firms) with process structure competence (i.e. the EU-wide maintenance of the required spatial, personnel and organisational capacities as well as strong networks across institutions, political groups and member states) on the part of an independent intermediary. One's own concerns are only likely to be successful if the in-terests of politicians and the general public are taken into consideration (change in perspec-tive to the common interest perspective). If this perspective change is successful, process support competence is crucial to achieving the objective.--

Reign of appearances : the misery and splendor of the public sphere
Adut, Ari, 1971- author
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Machine generated contents note: 1. A critique; 2. A realistic perspective; 3. Publicity; 4. Politics in public; 5. Content regulation; 6. Visibility in society; 7. Law and morality in the public sphere; 8. A defense of spectatorship; References; Index.

"The public sphere, be it the Greek agora or the New York Times op-ed page, is the realm of appearances - not citizenship. Its central event is spectacle - not dialogue. Public dialogue, the mantra of many intellectuals and political commentators, is but a contradiction in terms. Marked by an asymmetry between the few who act and the many who watch, the public sphere can undermine liberal democracy, law, and morality. Inauthenticity, superficiality, and objectification are the very essence of the public sphere. But the public sphere also liberates us from the bondages of private life and fosters an existentially vital aesthetic experience. Reign of Appearances uses a variety of cases to reveal the logic of the public sphere, including homosexuality in Victorian England; the 2008 crash; antisemitism in Europe; confidence in American presidents; communications in social media; special prosecutor investigations; the visibility of African-Americans; violence during the French Revolution; the Islamic veil; and contemporary sexual politics. This unconventional account of the public sphere is critical reading for anyone who wants to understand the effects of visibility in urban life, politics, and the media"--

Toward democracy : the struggle for self-rule in European and American thought
Kloppenberg, James T., author
Oxford ; Oxford University Press, [2016]
Born in bloodshed: the origins of democracy -- Voices in the wilderness: democracies in North America -- Democracy deferred: the English Civil War -- Coup d-Etat: 1688 in England and America -- Sympathy, will, and democracy in the enlightenments of Europe -- Faith, enlightenment, and resistance in America -- Democracy and American independence -- Constituting American democracy -- Ratification and reciprocity -- Delusions of unity and collisions with tradition in the French revolution -- Virtue and violence in the French revolution -- Democracy in the wake of terror -- Diagnosing democratic cultures in America and Europe -- The tragic irony of democracy.

The history of democracy, in addition to being a tale of social movements and political and economic developments, is also a story of ideas. In Toward Democracy, James T. Kloppenberg explores this story of ideas, focusing on the evolution of democracy in Britain's North American colonies and then in the United States. By concentrating on historical figures whose pivotal texts and framed arguments helped form the concept of democracy, he examines how American ideas and practices both descended and diverged from earlier European, and particularly English, models. Kloppenberg also shows how American thought, in return, profoundly influenced European ideas about democracy-both negatively and positively. Toward Democracy presents the history of democracy from the perspective of those who helped to form its principles. Kloppenberg neither condemns nor endorses these thinkers, but rather offers a fresh look at how these initial democratic ideals have shifted over time. He argues that democracy has remained an ethical model rather than a mere set of institutions, and sheds light on the many failures faced by democracy and its advocates. This discrepancy-between intentions and results-constitutes the tragic irony of democracy. From the beginnings of democracy in the ancient world, through the Enlightenment, and past the French Revolution, James T. Kloppenberg's authoritative work traces the transformation of democracy over centuries, and reveals how nations have repeatedly failed in their attempts to construct democratic societies based on the autonomy and reciprocity they so prized. -- Provided by publisher.

A Rhetoric of Divisive Partisanship: The 2016 American Presidential Campaign Disourse of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump examines the campaign speeches of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump as they targeted members of the American public that were ideologically different but equally emotionally vulnerable. Each appealed to marginalized segments of the electorate, groups at opposite ends of the political spectrum, joined through a shared distrust and fear of politics instead of political or even party affiliation. This book addresses how Sanders and Trump polarized and reinforced their respective bases as "outsiders" and relied on anti-establishment arguments and discussions grounded in personal attacks against "enemies." Colleen Elizabeth Kelley expands on previous ideas about dialogue and political talk and asserts that, rather than serving as a model of civic and civil discourse, the rhetoric of Sanders and Trump was reactionary and divisive, beginning with different intentions and producing different results--back cover.

In 'Parliamentary Diplomacy in European and Global Governance', 27 experts from all over the world analyse the fast-expanding phenomenon of parliamentary diplomacy. Through a wealth of empirical case studies, the book demonstrates that parliamentarians and parliamentary assemblies have an increasingly important international role. The volume begins with parliamentary diplomacy in Europe, because the European Parliament is one of the strongest autonomous institutional actors in world politics. The study then examines parliamentary diplomacy in relations between Europe and third countries or regions (Mexico, Turkey, Russia, the Mediterranean), before turning attention to the rest of the world: North and South America, Asia, Africa and Australia. This pioneering volume confirms the worldwide nature and salience of parliamentary diplomacy in contemporary global politics.

Making citizens : political socialization research and beyond
Wasburn, Philo C., author
[Cham, Switzerland] : Palgrave Macmillan, [2017]
This book assembles what political scientists, sociologists, and communication analysts have learned in almost six decades of research on political socialization (the lifelong process by which we acquire political beliefs). It also explores how people develop political values, attitudes, identities, and behavioral dispositions. Of particular interest to Philo C. Wasburn and Tawnya J. Adkins Covert is the process by which people are made into active citizens who are politically interested, informed, partisan, tolerant, and engaged. Finally, Wasburn and Adkins Covert identify some suggestions for institutional change that would lead to "better" citizenship.

Omnia sunt communia : on the commons and the transformation to postcapitalism
De Angelis, M. author
London : Zed Books Ltd, 2017
In Omnia Sunt Communia, Massimo de Angelis offers a radical political economy, illuminating the steps necessary to arrive at a post-capitalist world. By conceptualizing the idea of commons not just as common goods but as a set of social systems, de Angelis shows their pervasive presence in everyday life, and he maps out a strategy for total social transformation. From the micro to the macro, de Angelis unveils the commons as fields of power relations--shared space, objects, and subjects--that explode the limits of daily life under capitalism. He exposes attempts to co-opt the commons, through the use of seemingly innocuous words such as "participation" and "governance," and he reveals the potential for radical transformation rooted in the social reproduction of our communities, life, work, and society as a whole.--

Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2018
Understanding international organizations -- Representatives of member states -- Heads of international organizations: politicians, diplomats, managers -- Secretariats and staff -- Agenda setting -- Funding international organizations -- Location -- Conclusion: authority, capacity, legitimacy.

The Working World of International Organizations' examines three working groups in the higher echelons of IOs - state representatives, as proxy of states, serving in the Executive Boards or General Councils, chief officers of IOs, and the staff of the permanent secretariat. The book demonstrates that none of them are unified; in each there are contested ideas about strategy and appropriate projects, and analyses their interactions to explain who is able to shape or influence decisions. Six representative IOs are studied to identify the relevant critical determinants that shape the behaviour of players. The volume explores how these players have an impact over three dilemmas that are common to all IOs: priority and agenda setting, financing, and the centralization or decentralization of operations.

Why dissent matters : because some people see things the rest of us miss
Kaplan, William, 1957- author
Montreal, Quebec : McGill-Queen's University Press, [2017]
The tenth man -- There really is nothing new under the sun -- A woman of fortitude and determination : Frances Oldham Kelsey -- Rachel was right : Rachel Louise Carson -- Dissenting juries and judges -- Sentenced to death -- Occupy Wall Street -- and this, that, and the other place -- How not to make public policy -- The clock is ticking and it's 1973 all over again.

"Frances Kelsey was a quiet Canadian doctor and scientist who stood up to a huge pharmaceutical company wanting to market a new drug--Thalidomide--and prevented an American tragedy. The nature writer Rachel Carson identified an emerging environmental disaster and pulled the fire alarm. Dissenting juries can and do change the law. They did that when they refused to convict Dr. Henry Morgentaler of performing illegal abortions when he had done just that. Judicial dissents sometimes point to a different and more just future. Occasionally dissenting judges save lives, or at least try to: that's what happened when a wrongfully convicted teenage boy named Steven Truscott got the chance to tell his story before Canada's Supreme Court. It is, or should be, all about the evidence. And destroying the evidence is exactly what happened in Canada over the course of a dark decade when the recent Conservative government did everything it could to ensure that voices that might have informed public policy were silenced. Occupy Wall Street was the first truly international protest. Who were the occupiers and what did they want? Another growing international protest movement is BDS: Boycott, Divest, Sanction. It is directed at Israel. In October 1973 Israel came close to defeat when Egyptian and Syrian forces massed on the borders and overconfident Israeli officials did virtually nothing. Forty-five years later Israel's leaders seem woefully blind to another unfolding national security threat. Our world has been saved by dissenters: people who have been attacked, bullied, ostracized, jailed, and sometimes, when all is over, celebrated. Some dissenters have truly important things to say. Listen--and decide--before you shut them out."--

The book shows that the discursive construction of integration in the British public sphere shifted from one of cultural pluralism to one of neo-assimilation, informed by a wider spread of neo-liberalism that necessitates self-sufficiency and discourages state assistance. Situated within the Critical Discourse Studies tradition, the book employs a Discourse Historical approach to the data and includes innovative analysis combining 'top-down' (policy documents and media texts) and 'bottom-up' (focus groups with migrants and new citizens) sites of discourse production. In doing so, it provides a broad and detailed perspective of public discourse on integration in the UK. The book shows that understandings of 'integration' are diachronically and synchronically fluid and as such, the term plays an important role as a 'consensus concept' that different actors can support whilst construing it in different ways. Analysis of the data further reveals that integration is interdiscursively linked to other social fields, such as the economy, terrorism and public spending. The book also argues that integration policy has become directed not just at new migrants, but also long-term British citizens and that this has the potential to have considerable impact on community cohesion.

Unmasked : corruption in the West
Cockcroft, Laurence, author
London : I.B. Tauris, 2017
Corruption and its perils -- The rising price of power -- The power of the lobby -- The big business of corruption -- The bankers' story : an end to trust -- On- and offshore secrets -- Justice for sale? -- Organised crime : a perennial spectre -- Foul play : corruption in sport -- Murky waters : environmental ccorruption -- A challenge to the West.

How corrupt is the West? Europe and North America's formal self-perception is one of high standards in public life. And yet, corruption is receiving ever greater attention in the European, American and Canadian press, with high-profile cases affecting both the corporate and political worlds. This book identifies the driving forces behind such cases, particularly the role of political finance, lobbying, the banking system and organised crime. It analyses the sectors which are particularly prone to corruption, including sport, defence and pharmaceuticals. In the course of their investigation, the authors consider why anti-corruption legislation has not been more effective and why there is an increasing discrepancy between regulation and commercial and cultural practice. Are Europe and the US genuinely serious about fighting corruption and if so what measures will be taken to roll it back?

We know all about you : the story of surveillance in Britain and America
Jeffreys-Jones, Rhodri, author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2017
This is the story of surveillance in Britain and the United States, from the detective agencies of the late nineteenth century to Wikileaks and CIA whistle-blower Edward Snowden in the twenty-first. Written by historian and intelligence expert Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones, it is the first full overview of its kind. Delving into the roles of credit agencies, private detectives, and phone-hacking journalists as well as agencies like the FBI and NSA in the USA and GCHQ and MI5 in the UK, Jeffreys-Jones highlights malpractices such as the blacklist and illegal electronic interceptions. He demonstrates that several presidents -- Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard M. Nixon -- conducted various forms of political surveillance, and also how British agencies have been under a constant cloud of suspicion for similar reasons. Continuing with an account of the 1970s' leaks that revealed how the FBI and CIA kept tabs on anti-Vietnam War protestors, he assesses the reform impulse of this era -- an impulse that began in America and only gradually spread to Britain. The end of the Cold War further at the end of the 1980s then undermined confidence in the need for state surveillance still further, but it was to return with a vengeance after 9/11. What emerges is a story in which governments habitually abuse their surveillance powers once granted, demonstrating the need for proper controls in this area. But, as Jeffreys-Jones makes clear, this is not simply a story of the Orwellian state. While private sector firms have sometimes acted as a brake on surveillance by the state (particularly in the electronic era), they have also often engaged in dubious surveillance practices of their own. Oversight and regulation, he argues, therefore need to be universal and not simply concentrate on the threat to the individual posed by the agencies of government.

Neutrality in Southeast Asia : concepts and contexts
Tarling, Nicholas, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2017
This book analyses the notion of neutrality to the politics of the state in Southeast Asia. Distinguishing among neutrality, neutralism and neutralisation, it asks what relation do the concepts bear to the independence of states, and how do they relate to other forms of inter-state relations and to participation in international organizations. The author considers concepts of neutrality and the policy of non-alignment as they were developed in South and Southeast Asia. Using case studies of a variety of Asian countries, including India, Burma, Cambodia and other countries in Southeast Asia, he discusses the novel notion of a regional form of neutralisation as a means of decolonising the region and examines the relevance neutralism has in current international politics and what might it have in the future. This new work by one of the most foremost historians on Southeast Asia is of interest to scholars in the field of Asian History, Politics, International Relations and Strategic Studies.

La dieta de los honorables : los trapitos sucios de la Cámara de Diputados
Guzmán J., Nancy, author
Providencia, Santiago de Chile : Editorial Planeta Chilena S.A., 2017
They have been complex in recent years for Chile, especially if we add corporate corruption and the discrediting of republican politics and institutions to the erosion of the government projects of the Concertación and the New Majority. Therefore, during a year of elections, critical reflection on the representativeness of the Poder Legislativo and, especially, the one hundred and twenty "honorable" representatives that allow or impede changes in our country become urgent. In this detailed and no less ironic analysis, the journalist Nancy Guzmán bares with humor what each deputy does and does not do, what is their real participation in the construction of laws that represent the common welfare and how they come together among "rebels", "beautiful", "pirulas", "achorados", "care staff" and "media" to justify their diet. The diet of the honorable, in addition to a satirical review of the state of affairs in the Congreso, is a brief and intense history of the same and a guide to think if these one hundred and twenty citizens are the most apt to represent us.

Constructing global order : agency and change in world politics
Acharya, Amitav, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
1. Introduction: rethinking agency and change in global order; 2. Theorizing normative change; 3. Provincializing Westphalia; 4. Transforming Westphalia; 5. Redefining security; 6. Regionalism and the making of global order; 7. Conclusion and extensions.

"For a long time, international relations scholars have adopted a narrow view of what is global order, who are its makers and managers, and what means they employ to realize their goals. Amitav Acharya argues that the nature and scope of agency in the global order - who creates it and how - needs to be redefined and broadened. Order is built not by material power alone, but also by ideas and norms. While the West designed the post-war order, the non-Western countries were not passive. They contested and redefined Western ideas and norms, and contributed new ones of their own making. This book examines such acts of agency, especially the redefinitions of sovereignty and security, shaping contemporary world politics. With the decline of Western dominance, ideas and agency from the Rest may make it possible to imagine and build a truly global order"--

"There has been an undisputed increase in the importance of migration over the past decades. It is one of the effects of an increasingly globalized world, where capitalism and free trade are gaining prominence. Migration in East and Southeast Asia aims to bring migration-related problems in Asia to the forefront. The first part of the book deals with migration in Greater China, a region influenced by Confucianism. The "three Chinas" used to have a close connection in the past, and presently share much similarity. The Hong Kongese and Taiwanese societies are based on migration from Mainland China. However, each society has endured significant social, economic, and political changes. The second part of the book offers a closer look at migration flows in Southeast Asia. Most of the intra-ASEAN migration involves low-skilled labor for construction, agriculture, and domestic work"--
