  • Veto Playersby George Tsebelis

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 38.95 US$ 31.16

  • Regierungszentralenby Martin Florack; Timo Grunden

    Bundeskanzleramt und Staatskanzleien gelten als ?Innenhöfe der Macht?, als Führungs- und Steuerungszentren von Bundes- und Landesregierungen.

Das Spannungsfeld zwischen... more...
