  • The State of Accessby Jorrit de Jong; Gowher Rizvi

    Brookings Institution Press 2009; US$ 29.95

    This book documents a worrisome gap between principles and practice in democratic governance. The State of Access is a comparative, cross-disciplinary exploration of the ways in which democratic institutions fail or succeed to create the equal opportunities that they have promised to deliver to the people they serve. In theory, rules and regulations... more...

  • The Third Wayby Anthony Giddens

    Wiley 2013; US$ 22.95

    The idea of finding a 'third way' in politics has been widely discussed over recent months - not only in the UK, but in the US, Continental Europe and Latin America. But what is the third way? Supporters of the notion haven't been able to agree, and critics deny the possibility altogether. Anthony Giddens shows that developing a third way is not only... more...

  • The Third Way and its Criticsby Anthony Giddens

    Wiley 2013; US$ 69.95

    The idea of finding a 'third way' in politics has become a focus of discussion across the world. Political leaders, in the US, Europe, Asia and Latin America claim to be following its principles. Yet the notion has also attracted much criticism. Some say it is an empty concept without any real content. Critics from the more traditional left argue that... more...

  • The True Patriotby Eric Liu; Nick Hanauer

    Sasquatch Books 2012; US$ 10.95

    Over the course of a generation, patriotism in America has been hijacked by the right and abandoned by the left. But the principles and values of true patriotism – country above self, contribution above consumption, stewardship over exploitation, freedom with responsibility, purpose through sacrifice and service, pragmatism, a fair shot for all... more...

  • Turkish Democracy Todayby Ersin Kalaycioglu

    I.B.Tauris 2006; US$ 14.95

    The experience of democracy in Turkey since its introduction in 1950 has been bloody, chequered but persistent. The complex cultural and economic stratification of Turkish society, together with its unique geopolitical status, straddling Eastern and Western zones of influence, in part accounts for the turbulence of Turkey?s democratic experience. But... more...

  • Twenty Years of Studying Democratizationby Aurel Croissant; Jeffrey Haynes

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 47.95

    Democratization emerged at a time of epochal change in global politics: the twin impacts of the end of the Soviet Union and the speeding up and deepening of globalisation in the early 1990s meant a whole new ball game in terms of global political developments. The journal?s first issue appeared in early 1994. Over time, the editorial position has... more...

    Hamburger Edition HIS 2015; Not Available

Die Bürgerinnen und Bürger sehen sich zunehmend selbst... more...

  • War and Democratizationby Wolfgang Merkel; Sonja Grimm

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    Promotion of democracy in post-war and post-conflict societies became a topic during the 1990s.

  • 'Progress' in Zimbabwe?by David Moore; Norma Kriger; Brian Raftopoulos

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 160.00

    Zimbabwe's severe crisis - and a possible way out of it with a transitional government, and the new era for which it prepares the ground - demands a coherent scholarly response. 'Progress' can be employed as an organising theme across many disciplinary approaches to Zimbabwe's societal devastation. At wider levels too, the concept of progress is fitting.... more...
