    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 46.34

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 48.99

    The conventional model for explaining the uniqueness of American democracy is its division between executive, legislative, and judicial functions. It was the great contribution of Frank J. Goodnow to codify a less obvious, but no less profound element: the distinction between politics and policies, principles and operations. He showed how the United... more...

  • Economic Democracy: The Political Struggle of the 21st Centuryby J. W. Smith

    This title was first published in 1999: The author contends that economic democracy is the economic system the U.S. purports to have, but has thus far failed to achieve because it, like all the economic powers that have gone before, seeks to control the economies of weaker nations. It is the shocking lack of economic democracy, and the efforts of so... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 60.91

    "How are democracy and market reforms faring in East Central Europe and the former Soviet Union? Is civil society expanding or shrinking? Are the media free or fettered by official constraints?

  • Latin American Political Yearbookby Jr. Breene

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 46.34

  • Legislative Styleby William Bernhard; Tracy Sulkin

    University of Chicago Press 2018; US$ 35.00

    Once elected, members of Congress face difficult decisions about how to allocate their time and effort. On which issues should they focus?
