Institutional design in post-communist societies : rebuilding the ship at sea by Jon Elster( Book )

23 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors of this book have developed a new and stimulating approach to the analysis of the transitions of Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia to democracy and a market economy. They integrate interdisciplinary theoretical work with elaborate empirical data on some of the most challenging events of the twentieth century. Three groups of phenomena and their causal interconnection are explored: the material legacies, constraints, habits and cognitive frameworks inherited from the past; the erratic configuration of new actors, and new spaces for action; and a new institutional order under which agency is institutionalized and the sustainability of institutions is achieved. The book studies the interrelations of national identities, economic interests, and political institutions with the transformation process, concentrating on issues of constitution making, democratic infrastructure, the market economy, and social policy

"At a time when so many cracks have emerged within the imagined community of 'the West', this important new book, by one of the leading social scientists in Europe, examines the intellectual history of comparing Europe and the United States. Claus Offe considers the perspectives adopted by three of Europe's greatest social scientists - Alexis de Tocqueville, Max Weber and Theodor W. Adorno - in their comparative writings on Europe."--Jacket
Europe entrapped by Claus Offe( Book )

23 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and German and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today Europe finds itself in a crisis that casts a dark shadow over an entire generation. The seriousness of the crisis stems from one core political contradiction at the heart of the European project: namely, that what urgently needs to be done is also extremely unpopular and therefore virtually impossible to do democratically. What must be done - and almost everyone agrees in principle on the measures that would be needed to deal with the financial crisis - cannot be sold to the voting public of the core member states, which so far have been less affected by the crisis than those on the periphery, nor can the conditions that core members try to impose be easily sold to voters in the deficit countries. The European Union is therefore becoming increasingly disunited, with deepening divides between the German-dominated 'core' and the southern 'periphery', between the winners and the losers of the common currency, between the advocates of greater integration and the anti-Europeans, between the technocrats and the populists. Europe finds itself trapped by the deepening divisions that are opening up across the Continent, obstructing its ability to deal with a crisis that has already caused massive social suffering in the countries of the European periphery and is threatening to derail the very project of the European Union. In this short book, Claus Offe brings into sharp focus the central political problem that lies at the heart of the EU and shackles its ability to deal with the most serious crisis of its short history"--

Geschichte und Zukunft der Arbeit( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in German and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ohne Arbeit sind materielle Sicherheit, sinnvolle Lebensgestaltung und gesellschaftliche Anerkennung nur schwer zu erlangen. Doch Massenarbeitslosigkeit und eine sich verändernde Erwerbsarbeit stellen diese zentralen Funktionen der Arbeit in Frage. Die Autoren beleuchten den Stellenwert der Arbeit in der Geschichte, diskutieren die gegenwärtige Beschäftigungskrise und zeigen Perspektiven für den Umgang mit der gewandelten Erwerbsarbeit in der Zukunft auf. Der Band entstand im Zusammenhang mit dem am Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin betriebenen Projekt AGORA - Arbeit, Wissen, Bindung

9 editions published in 2006 in German and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungDass der Sozialstaat in seiner gegenwärtigen Form ein Auslaufmodell ist, darüber besteht mittlerweile weitgehend Konsens. Über die Alternativen wird noch gestritten. Zu den wohl provokantesten Alternativen gehört das Modell der Teilhabegesellschaft: Jeder junge Bürger soll mit 18 Jahren als Startkapital eine steuerfinanzierte Sozialerbschaft von 60 000 Euro erhalten. So soll ihr oder ihm die Chance eröffnet werden, seines eigenen Glückes Schmied zu sein. Die Finanzierung erfolgt aus der Besteuerung von Vermögen und Erbschaften. Die Autoren haben das in den USA entwickelte Mode
