Federalism in the European Union Hart Publishing
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This edited volume aims to reveal the Janus-faced character of federalism in the European Union. Federalism appears in two main forms in the EU. On the one hand, numerous formerly unitary Member States have embarked on a path towards a (quasi-)federal governance structure. On the other hand, the EU itself is sometimes qualified as a federal system. Significantly, the concept of federalism has a very different, even opposite, connotation in both contexts. When associated with Member State reform, federalism is regarded as a technique for accommodating autonomy claims of sub-state nations. By contrast, when federalism is used as a label for the EU itself, it is conceived as a far-reaching way of integrating the nations of Europe. This dual appearance of federalism in the EU context is central to the structure of the book. The first collection of essays addresses the question whether the EU may be described as a federal system, and whether it can learn from existing federations. In the second set of contributions, the attention shifts to domestic federalisation processes, more particularly to the impact of these processes on EU law and vice versa.
Remaking Union Devolution & British Politics Frank Cass
This volume addresses the issues arising from the recent devolution referenda by exploring the historical development of the proposals, the importance of national and regional identities, the changing policies of the political parties and the approaches of business and other major groups towards devolution. It also looks at the impact on electoral reform coming from the proposal that proportional representation be used to elect the regional assemblies and how the new assemblies are to be financed. Finally the book discusses the implications of a devolved British state where different countries and regions achieve different levels of autonomy at different paces.

Word of Warning to Democrats Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from A Word of Warning to Democrats: From a Life-Long Voter With the Party In the terrible storm of civil war which is now sweeping over the land, we find ourselves suddenly arrayed 011 opposite sides of a question involving vast consequences to us all. We stand, as it were, face to face, gazing at the question lying between us. We cannot both he right, yet neither is able to convince the other of his error. Were this a mere political question, simply a scramble for office, such as we have witnessed iii years gone by, I would be content to remain silent; but, when I see the enemies of republican institutions clutching at the throat of our Government, and that Government apparently in the agonies of dissolution, I cannot restrain myself from making an effort to show to you the consequences which are almost certain to follow a successful carrying out of the Democratic policy. To spread before your eyes the picture which looks so terrible to mine, and if you will bear with me, my friends, I will endeavor, as briefly as possible, to show that the policy of the Democratic party, if successful, must, of necessity, lead to nothing hut evil, and, perhaps, to the ruin of our country. Before proceeding further in my self-imposed task, allow me to premise that, in using the words "Democratic" and "Democracy," I refer simply to the party organization of that name, and not to the principles of Democracy, which I regard as essentially different from the policy now advocated by that party. With this explanation I proceed. The policy of the Democratic party, as I understand it, from the addresses of its leaders, the speeches of its candidates, and the catch-words of the rank-and-file, is "Compromise" "Peace" "To put down the Administration" The Constitution as it is, and the Union as it was," and something, not clearly defined, about repudiation of the United States debt.

This Book Intends To Show That The Violent Disintegration Of The Soviet Union, Characteristic For The South Caucasus Region And Most Prominently Georgia, Cannot Be Fully Explained Solely By An Investigation Of The Ethnopolitical And National Uprisings Which Were Stimulated By The Political Changes Of The Perestroika Period. Instead, It Argues That A Rigorous Analysis Of The Late 1980s/early 1990s Violent Transitions Has To Be Linked With A Longer-term Perspective Focusing On The Function And Development Of The Soviet Developmentalist State. This Perspective Tends To View The Soviet System As An Alternative To The Western Capitalist System And Aims Towards An Understanding The Socio-economic Processes Which Determined The Dynamics Of The System. In This Sense, Violent Mobilizations In Georgia Resulted From The Processes That Were Determined By The Function And Decline Of The Soviet Developmentalist State. While Accepting The Dynamics Of Ethnopolitical Mobilization, This Monograph Addresses The Issue Of Which Socio-economic Processes Bred Those Mobilizations.
Postnational Constellation BAKER & TAYLOR
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
In "The Postnational Constellation," J?rgen Habermas addresses these and other questions. He explores the historical and political origins of national identity, the achievements and catastrophes of the twentieth century, the future of democracy in the wake of the era of the nation-state, the political and moral challenges facing the European Union, and the status of global human rights in the ongoing debate on the sources of cultural identity. In their scope, critical insight, and clarity, the essays present a powerful vision of the contemporary political scene and the opportunities and challenges facing us. Those new to Habermas's work will find in this book a lucid and engaging introduction to one of the twentieth century's most influential thinkers. Those familiar with Habermas's writings will appreciate the application of his social and political theories to current political realities.
