  • The Once and Future Kingby F. H. Buckley

    Encounter Books 2015; US$ 17.99

    This remarkable book shatters just about every myth surrounding American government, the Constitution, and the Founding Fathers, and offers the clearest warning about the alarming rise of one-man rule in the age of Obama. Most Americans believe that this country uniquely protects liberty, that it does so because of its Constitution, and that for... more...

    University of Alabama Press 2015; US$ 24.95

    Before 1946 the congressional role in public administration had been limited to authorization, funding, and review of federal administrative operations, which had grown rapidly as a result of the New Deal and the Second World War. But in passing the Administrative Procedure Act and the Legislative Reorganization Act that pivotal year, Congress self-consciously... more...

  • The Illusion of Progressby Alexander Gillespie

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    Stellen im öffentlichen Dienst sind aufgrund der Haushaltslage der öffentlichen Hand nicht mehr in der Anzahl verfügbar wie in früheren Zeiten.

  • Building Blocsby Cedric de Leon; Manali Desai; Cihan Tugal

    Stanford University Press 2015; US$ 24.95

    Do political parties merely represent divisions in society? Until now, scholars and other observers have generally agreed that they do. But Building Blocs argues the reverse: that some political parties in fact shape divisions as they struggle to remake the social order. Drawing on the contributors' expertise in Indonesia, India, the United States,... more...

  • Governments around the World: From Democracies to Theocraciesby Fred Shelley

    ABC-CLIO 2015; US$ 100.00

    Political systems around the world can be a confusing subject. Why does England have both a monarchy and a prime minister? How does a federal republic differ from a federation and a republic? How is China a communist state without a dictator? And how is the United Nations managed? Governments around the World: From Democracies to Theocracies examines... more...

    Immigration is among the most prominent, enduring, and contentious features of our globalized world. Yet, there is little systematic, cross-national research on why countries "do what they do" when it comes to their immigration policies.

  • Govern Like Usby M. A. Thomas

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 44.99

    In the poorest countries, such as Afghanistan, Haiti, and Mali, the United States has struggled to work with governments whose corruption and lack of capacity are increasingly seen to be the cause of instability and poverty.
