  • Democracy: All That Mattersby Steven Beller

    Hodder & Stoughton 2013; US$ 6.99

    Democracy is in crisis. This is a crisis of growth on the one hand, with the Arab Spring and possible change in Burma and elsewhere, but also a crisis of alienation and stagnation in the more established democracies, in the United States and in Europe, where apathy and the uncontrolled power exerted by financial markets and the wealthy are threatening... more...

    Intercollegiate Studies Institute 2014; US$ 14.99

    The End of Democracy?  The fall of the Berlin Wall. The collapse of the Iron Curtain. The Orange Revolution. The Arab Spring. The rush of events in recent decades seems to confirm that Alexis de Tocqueville was right: the future belongs to democracy. But take a closer look.

  • Turkish Democracy Todayby Ersin Kalaycioglu

    I.B.Tauris 2006; US$ 29.00

    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...

  • Democracy Promotion and the 'Colour Revolutions'by Susan Stewart

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    This book reviews the interplay between domestic contexts and democracy promotion efforts in selected countries of the former Soviet Union and the Western Balkans.

  • Democracy in Theory and Practiceby Stephen Elstub

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    Democracy is an issue of major importance in theory and practice in politics throughout the world. However, democracy?s study and advancement has been significantly compromised by a dichotomy between theorising about democracy, and empirical studies of democracy in practice. In addition to highlighting the need for this gap to be overcome, this book... more...

  • Democracy Promotion in the EU?s Neighbourhoodby Sandra Lavenex; Frank Schimmelfennig

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    EU external democracy promotion has traditionally been based on ?linkage?, i.e. bottom-up support for democratic forces in third countries, and ?leverage?, i.e. the top-down inducement of political elites towards democratic reforms through political conditionality. The advent of the European Neighbourhood Policy and new forms of association have introduced... more...

  • Democratic Revolution in Ukraineby Taras Kuzio

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

The President was heard on tapes, made covertly in his office, ordering violence to be undertaken against the journalist. The scandal led to the creation of a wide protest... more...

  • War and Democratizationby Wolfgang Merkel; Sonja Grimm

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

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

  • The Roles and Function of Parliamentary Questionsby Shane Martin; Olivier Rozenberg

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 37.95

    Parliamentary questions are a feature of almost all national legislatures. Despite this, we know very little about how questions are used by MPs and what impact questions have on controlling the government. This volume advances our theoretical and empirical knowledge of the use of questioning in a number of different parliamentary settings. The propensity... more...

  • The Case against Democracyby Steven Michels

    ABC-CLIO 2013; US$ 58.00
