The politics of women's interests : new comparative perspectives by Louise A Chappell( )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women have interests in common. They also have interests in conflict. This book explores some of the points at which women's interests coincide and considers how they can be aggregated in order to shape political discourses, rules and institutions. Looking at experiences in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, this book will be of great interest to students and researchers in the fields of gender studies, political science, and comparative politics."--Jacket
The passionate society : the social, political and moral thought of Adam Ferguson by Lisa Hill( )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2018 in English and Chinese and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adam Ferguson (1723-1816) was a major figure of the Scottish Enlightenment whose thought was, in many respects, original and distinctive. This book is a study of his ideas and of the intellectual forces that shaped them." "Though somewhat overlooked in the nineteenth century, Ferguson was rescued from obscurity in the first half of the twentieth century by scholars interested in the origins of sociology and early critiques of modernity. Ferguson's interest in the mechanics of social life and especially social change led him to many groundbreaking insights. In fact, he is sometimes identified as the 'Father of Modern Sociology'. In addition to exploring whether or not he merits this title, this study examines the whole of Ferguson's thought as a system and includes his moral and faculty psychology, historiography, theology, politics and social science."--Jacket
Compulsory voting : for and against by Jason Brennan( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In many democracies, voter turnout is low and getting lower. If the people choose not to govern themselves, should they be forced to do so? For Jason Brennan, compulsory voting is unjust and a petty violation of citizens' liberty. The median non-voter is less informed and rational, as well as more biased than the median voter. According to Lisa Hill, compulsory voting is a reasonable imposition on personal liberty. Hill points to the discernible benefits of compulsory voting and argues that high turnout elections are more democratically legitimate. The authors - both well-known for their work on voting and civic engagement - debate questions such as: -Do citizens have a duty to vote, and is it an enforceable duty? -Does compulsory voting violate citizens' liberty? If so, is this sufficient grounds to oppose it? Or is it a justifiable violation? Might it instead promote liberty on the whole? -Is low turnout a problem, or a blessing? -Does compulsory voting produce better government? Or, might it instead produce worse government? Might it, in fact, have little effect overall on the quality of government?"--

An intellectual history of political corruption by Bruce Buchan( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few concepts have witnessed a more dramatic resurgence of interest in recent year than corruption. It is, however, a concept that dates back to antiquity with this recent popularity representing the latest iteration in a long history of contestation over corruption. In one of the first surveys of the variable contours of meaning invested in the term, from antiquity through to the end of the eighteenth century, this book explores the significant role corruption has played in political discourse through the centuries. It finds that corruption was not always a concept particular to the abuse of public office, but was often applied to more nebulous fears of moral, spiritual and physical degeneration. This book marshals both historical and conceptual analysis to demonstrate a conceptual oscillation between restrictive 'public office' and expansive 'degenerative' connotations of corruption that persisted until the second half of the eighteenth century when the public office conception overtook and finally superseded the degenerative one. The result is a survey that is fundamental to the understanding of modern ideas of corruption and represents an invaluable tool to both students and scholars of the subject
British international thinkers from Hobbes to Namier by Ian Hall( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the modern era, British thinkers have made significant - indeed perhaps even disproportionate - contributions to our understanding of the workings of international relations. This book brings together eleven original essays by an inter-disciplinary team of historians, political theorists and international relations specialists that reconsider some of those contributions and their legacies. It aims to provide new insights into the work of thinkers from Thomas Hobbes and Edmund Burke to Goldsworthy Lowes and Lewis Namier as well as to advance the study of the history of international thought
Meet Me at Number Five by Lisa Hill( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's a race against time to find happiness in this delightful British novel about starting over ... Grace Cavendish knows a thing or two about horses-but what she doesn't know is that her husband, top horse racing trainer Charlie Carrisbrook, is having a literal 'roll in the hay' right under her nose. When the painful truth is revealed, Grace has no choice but to move in with her highly-strung grandmother Clara and cousin Hennie, a single mum who has renounced men-at least, that's what she says ... Determined to start again, Grace takes a job at the local cafe, Number Five. And whilst serving up coffee and cake is a far cry from the stables, she enjoys it-especially as she gets to work alongside the rather scrumptious Sam Whittaker. But the past is racing to catch up with Grace. Can her life still be a romp to victory or will a devastating secret stop her dead in her tracks'

Equality and representation : new perspectives in democratic theory by Anthoula Malkopoulou( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is primarily concerned with equality as a basic component of the democratic character of representation. In other words, of the many types of equality that have attracted the attention of theorists since democracy's beginnings - arithmetic equality, equality before the law, equality of opportunity- we would like to draw attention to representational equality, that is, the role of equality in systems of democratic representation. In what form is equality present in traditional forms of electoral representation? How can it be secured in new forms of representation, such as claims-making, deliberative, klerotarian and epistemic representation? And to what extent are electoral or non-electoral models of representation able to accommodate increasing social inequalities? The articles in this volume discuss these issues from a normative and conceptual point of view, seeking to shed new light on the important but under-explored relationship between equality and representation. This book was originally published as a special issue of Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy."--Provided by publisher
