Democracy

  • Representation in State Legislaturesby Malcolm E. Jewell

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Every two years American voters turn out to elect several thousand representatives to state legislatures. Only now in Representation in State Legislatures do we have a detailed examination of how these officials perceive their jobs and how they attempt to do them. To provide answers to these questions, Malcolm E. Jewell conducted intensive interviews... more...

  • Democratizing Inequalitiesby Caroline W. Lee; Michael McQuarrie; Edward T. Walker; Craig Calhoun

    NYU Press 2015; US$ 26.00

    Opportunities to ?have your say,? ?get involved,? and ?join the conversation? are everywhere in public life. From crowdsourcing and town hall meetings to government experiments with social media, participatory politics increasingly seem like a revolutionary antidote to the decline of civic engagement and the thinning of the contemporary public sphere.... more...

  • Kill the Messengersby Mark Bourrie

    HarperCollins Canada 2015; US$ 25.99

    Ottawa has become a place where the nation?s business is done in secret, and access to information--the lifeblood of democracy in Canada--is under attack. It?s being lost to an army of lobbyists and public-relations flacks who help set the political agenda and decide what you get to know. It?s losing its struggle against a prime minister and a... more...

  • Reconstructing Democracyby Justin Behrend

    University of Georgia Press 2015; US$ 59.95

    Former slaves, with no prior experience in electoral politics and with few economic resources or little significant social standing, created a sweeping political movement that transformed the South after the Civil War. Within a few short years after emancipation, not only were black men voting but they had elected thousands of ex-slaves to political... more...

  • Economic Equality and Direct Democracy in Ancient Athensby Larry Patriquin

    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 45.00

    This book argues that ancient democracy did not stop at the door of economic democracy, and that ancient Athens has much to tell us about the relationship between political equality and economic equality. Athenian democracy rested on a foundation of general economic equality, which enabled citizens to challenge their exclusion from politics. ... more...

  • Movements in Times of Democratic Transitionby Bert Klandermans; Cornelis van Stralen

    Temple University Press 2015; US$ 34.95

    In regions that have undergone tumultuous transitions, democratic social movements have often been the catalyst for great change. However, once those changes occur, can these movements survive, and if so, how?   The editors and contributors to Movements in Times of Democratic Transition examine in comparative detail how social movements act within... more...

  • Rawls and Religionby Tom Bailey; Valentina Gentile

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    John Rawls?s influential theory of justice and public reason has often been thought to exclude religion from politics, out of fear of its illiberal and destabilizing potentials. It has therefore been criticized by defenders of religion for marginalizing and alienating the wealth of religious sensibilities, voices, and demands now present in contemporary... more...

  • Rebalancing Societyby Henry Mintzberg

    Berrett-Koehler Publishers 2015; US$ 15.95

    Our world is out of balance, says Henry Mintzberg, and the consequences are proving fateful: the degradation of our environment, the demise of our democracies, and the denigration of ourselves, with greed having been raised to some sort of high calling. But we can set things right. Mintzberg argues that a healthy society is built on three balanced... more...

  • Rebalancing Societyby Henry Mintzberg

    Berrett-Koehler Publishers 2015; US$ 15.95

    Enough of the imbalance that is causing the degradation of our environment, the demise of our democracies, and the denigration of ourselves. Enough of the pendulum politics of left and right and paralysis in the political center. We require an unprecedented form of radical renewal. In this book Henry Mintzberg offers a new understanding of the root... more...

  • Sustainable Strategic Managementby W Edward Stead

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 59.95

    Sustainable strategic management (SSM) involves analysing, formulating, and implementing business strategies that are economically competitive, socially responsible, and in balance with the cycles of nature.
