    ABC-CLIO 2015; US$ 100.00

    Political systems around the world can be a confusing subject. Why does England have both a monarchy and a prime minister? How does a federal republic differ from a federation and a republic?

  • Legislatures of Small Statesby Nicholas D J Baldwin

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    This book provides a comparative study of the legislatures of small nations, states and territories, to explore the extent to which size is a factor in how they function and fulfil the roles and responsibility of a legislature.

  • Lobbying Uncovered?by Lisa Moessing

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 26.99

    To the public's eye, lobbying is still a highly obscure trade. Lobbyists are generally perceived to work behind closed doors in order to influence legislation—what really happens is unknown to the public. To make interest representatives more visible, both the European Union and the United States have developed mechanisms to register lobbyists. However,... more...

    Erich Schmidt Verlag 2013; US$ 65.62

    Die Berücksichtigung von Verlusten zählt schon immer zu den besonders schwierigen steuerlichen Fragen.

Dennis Weiler... more...
