Practical Politics

  • Discourse, Dictators and Democratsby Richard D. Anderson

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 114.95

    Voting hides a familiar puzzle. Many people take the trouble to vote even though each voter's prospect of deciding the election is nearly nil. Russians vote even when pervasive electoral fraud virtually eliminates even that slim chance. The right to vote has commonly been won by protesters who risked death or injury even though any one protester could... more...

  • Malta in the European Unionby Mark Harwood

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

Providing... more...

  • The European Union: A Citizen's Guideby Chris Bickerton

    Penguin Books Ltd 2016; US$ 12.68

    The essential Pelican introduction to the European Union - its history, its politics, and its role today For most of us today, 'Europe' refers to the European Union. At the centre of a seemingly never-ending crisis, the EU remains a black box, closed to public understanding. Is it a state? An empire? Is Europe ruled by Germany or by European... more...

  • The Trickle-Down Delusionby John Seip; Jr. Dee Wood Harper

    UPA 2016; US$ 46.99

    Trickle-down values have distorted not only our economic thought but also our political thought, our sociology and our concept of the rule of law. The trickle-down policies promoted by the Republican Party are undermining our economy, democracy, institutions and health. We, the American people, must return to liberalism that works. more...

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 47.95

    Emphasizing the importance of the space programme to the scientific, social and cultural history of the last half of the 20th century, this brief history celebrates the almost unimaginable technological leap that the space programme represents, a feat of teamwork, innovation, dedication and mastery unprecedented in the history of mankind. Walsh's narrative... more...

  • Corruption and Criminal Justiceby Tina Søreide

  • Political Finance and Corruption in Eastern Europeby Daniel Smilov; Jurij Toplak

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

This key volume provides a thorough and well-structured post-communist study of political finance, election campaign and party funding issues within this region,... more...

  • Parliaments and Citizensby Cristina Leston-Bandeira

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    The relationship between parliaments and citizens is one of the least studied subjects in legislative studies, yet this is a crucial dimension to understand parliaments and the role they play in our political systems. Furthermore, this relationship has gained considerable visibility over the last decade thanks in part to the development of new media,... more...

  • Towards an Imperfect Unionby Dalibor Rohac

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2016; US$ 28.99

    This compelling book represents the first systematic justification of the European project from a free-market viewpoint.
