    Edinburgh University Press 2008; US$ 34.99

    This book presents an innovative analysis of the nature of democratic theory, focusing on the prevalence of pious discourses of democracy in contemporary politics. Democracy is now promoted in religious terms to such an extent that it has become sacrosanct in Western political theory. This book argues that such piety relies on unsophisticated political... 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...

  • Democratic Revolution in Ukraineby Taras Kuzio

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    In 2000 a beheaded journalist was found in a remote forest near Kyiv. The corpse led to a scandal when it was revealed that it was that of a journalist critical of the authorities. 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 book deals with the legality, legitimacy and effectiveness of military interventions where the international community of states not only felt impelled to engage in military humanitarian or peace-building missions but also in long-term state- and democracy-building.... more...

  • Democratic Legitimacyby Pierre Rosanvallon; Arthur Goldhammer

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 37.50

    It's a commonplace that citizens in Western democracies are disaffected with their political leaders and traditional democratic institutions. But in Democratic Legitimacy , Pierre Rosanvallon, one of today's leading political thinkers, argues that this crisis of confidence is partly a crisis of understanding. He makes the case that the sources of... more...

  • Requisites of Democracyby Jørgen Møller; Svend-Erik Skaaning

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 145.00

    This book brings together the conceptual and theoretical writings of Joseph Schumpeter, Robert A. Dahl, Guillermo O?Donnell, and T. H. Marshall.  It demonstrates that most of the different conceptions of democracy in the democratization literature can be ordered in one systematic regime typology that distinguishes between ?thinner? and ?thicker? definitions... more...

  • Ending Terrorism in Italyby Anna Cento Bull; Philip Cooke

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 140.00

    Ending Terrorism in Italy analyses processes of disengagement from terrorism, as well as the connected issues of reconciliation, truth and justice. It examines in a critical and original way how terrorism came to an end in Italy (Part I), and the legacy it has left behind (Part II). The book interrogates a wide array of published memoirs and a considerable... more...

  • Democratic Governanceby Mark Bevir

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 37.50

    Democratic Governance examines the changing nature of the modern state and reveals the dangers these changes pose to democracy. Mark Bevir shows how new ideas about governance have gradually displaced old-style notions of government in Britain and around the world. Policymakers cling to outdated concepts of representative government while at the... 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...

  • 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...
