  • Cohesion and Discipline in Legislaturesby Reuven Y. Hazan

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    The existence of noticeable 'unified' parties is central to the theory and practice of democracy in general, and to parliamentary democracy in particular.

The first step in this direction is to ask why one of the... more...

    OUP Oxford 2009; US$ 42.99 US$ 36.97

  • Veto Playersby George Tsebelis

  • Regierungszentralenby Martin Florack; Timo Grunden

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2010; US$ 44.99

    Bundeskanzleramt und Staatskanzleien gelten als ?Innenhöfe der Macht?, als Führungs- und Steuerungszentren von Bundes- und Landesregierungen. Doch dieser machtpolitische Status lässt sich nicht aus formalen Funktionen und Kompetenzen ableiten. Es ist Informalität, die aus einer Regierungskanzlei eine Regierungszentrale macht. Das Spannungsfeld zwischen... more...
