  • Democracy Building and Democracy Erosionby Eberhard Kienle

    Saqi 2013; US$ 29.15

    The promotion of political reform, participation, human rights and democracy on the southern and eastern shores of the Mediterranean was a key objective for the European Union as it prepared the Barcelona conference in 1995. Today it is clear that these policies have failed to prompt an end to authoritarian rule. The authors of Democracy Building... more...

  • Democracy for Breakfastby Tatah Mentan

    Langaa RPCIG 2013; US$ 36.95

    Democracy is the faith that the process of experience is more important than any special result attained, so that special results achieved are of ultimate value only as they are used to enrich and order the ongoing process. Africans must therefore be allowed to apply their cultural and historical experiences and talents in working out a pattern of... more...

  • Democracy: All That Mattersby Steven Beller

    Hodder & Stoughton 2013; Not Available

    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...

  • 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...

  • After Tocquevilleby Chilton Williamson

    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. The history of democracy since the 1830s, when Tocqueville wrote  Democracy... more...

    Eine von Krieg, Gewalt und Genozid betroffene Gesellschaft muss die schwierige Aufgabe bewältigen, ein friedensförderndes Mittelmaß zwischen vergeltenden und restorativen Ansätzen der Vergangenheitsbewältigung zu finden.

  • Nations and Democracyby Amanda Machin

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    A figure of enduring ingenuity, the nation has for centuries played a part on the socio-political stage. Whether centre stage or background scenery, it has featured in violent tragedies, revolutionary drama and nostalgic fable. Today, the nation is cast simultaneously in the roles of villain and hero. While it is renounced by those advocating trans-national,... more...

  • Defining Democracy in a Digital Ageby Barend Lutz; Pierre du Toit

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 45.00

    The internet has created a new social base where governments are ever more critically examined and measuring public sentiment expressed on social media is crucial to gauging ongoing support for democracy. This book illustrates a methodology for doing so, and considers the impact of this new public sphere on the future of democracy. more...

  • Rosa Luxemburg in Actionby Rosemary H. T. O'Kane

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    Neither a work concerned only with her Marxist writings nor a personal biography concerned with her private life, this book examines Rosa Luxemburg?s ideas on revolution and democracy and how the two are bound together by her views on the importance of political action. Stretching, historically, from 1863 to the present, this book covers in great... more...
