Pressure groups by J. J Richardson( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The readings in this series are chosen from a variety of journals and other sources to cover major areas or issues in the study of politics, government, and political theory. Each volume contains an introductory essay by the editor and a select guide to further reading." "Since the early 1950s pressure groups have been recognized as playing a key role in the policy process in western democracies. As legislatures and political parties have declined in influence, the relationship between pressure groups and government has become highly developed. This has presented both problems and opportunities for the participation of ordinary citizens in the governmental process. This book reviews some of the key theoretical concepts developed in the study of pressure groups and presents a series of up-to-date studies of their role in particular countries, including the UK, USA, France, and the former Soviet Union. It is an authoritative collection, edited by one of Britain's leading pressure group analysts, and will be invaluable for both students and practitioners who want to understand current developments in the lobbying process."--Jacket

Lobbying in the European Community( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The role of interest groups in the formulation of EC policy is a central aspect of the development of the European Community: This book is unique in providing both an academic analysis of the system and an insider's view of how lobbying actually works." "The first part examines the consequences of the increasing transference of power to Brussels in terms of the EC policy process, the activities of the Commission of the EC as an 'adolescent' bureaucracy, and the behaviour of interest associations at national and European level. Subsequent chapters look in detail at the wide range of interest groups involved in lobbying, including business, industry, the financial sector, and voluntary organizations." "The combination of contributions from academic specialists and practitioners, including Commission officials and interest group leaders, will make this book uniquely interesting as a study of a key area of the evolving European policy process." "The purpose of the Nuffield European Studies series is to provide, for students and teachers in the social sciences and related disciplines, works of an interdisciplinary and comparative nature dealing with significant political, economic, legal, and social problems confronting European nation-states and the European Community: It will comprise research monographs as well as the edited proceedings of conferences organized by the Centre for European Studies at Nuffield College, Oxford. The general editors of the series are Joachim Jens Hesse, Ford-Monnet Professor of European Politics and Comparative Government in the University of Oxford and Director of the Centre for European Studies, and Vincent Wright, Official Fellow of Nuffield College."--Jacket

Artificial intelligence in maintenance by J. J Richardson( Book )

8 editions published in 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principal subdisciplines of AI (e.g., expert systems, problem solving, planning, and natural language understanding) are presented as well as the larger systems engineering issues. In a chapter devoted to automated systems for managing hardware failures, the components of the failure cycle (detection, diagnosis, and repair) are described in tandem with machine approaches and applicable AI methodology. In this report, effective improvement in military maintenance is viewed to be dependent not only on automated systems but also on the development of human resources and the organizational context of maintenance. Evidence and information are provided to support the recommendation that it is possible to build more effective and less costly automated diagnostic systems only if these systems exploit human problem-solving capabilities. Four hypothetical examples of advanced systems and a comparison of human vs. machine strengths and weaknesses as problem solvers are outlined. Five research and development recommendations for the use of AI in maintenance conclude that (1) there is a good match between the need for improved maintenance and the emerging science of AI, (2) AI research should be guided by a policy of integrated diagnostics, and (3) field evaluations of AI applications should focus on organizational impact as well as technical issues, (4) programs should be targeted at both fielded systems and systems under development, (5) basic research should investigate cooperative human-machine device diagnosis problem solving and the coordination of the specification- and symptom-based approaches

Constructing a policy-making state? : Policy dynamics in the EU( Book )

15 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Constructing a Policy-Making State? sets out to examine the processes by which Europeanization takes place. Europeanization is defined as the process by which the key decisions about public policies are gradually transferred to the European level (or for new policy areas, emerge at the European level). This is in contrast to definitions of Europeanization which focus on the adaption of member states to European public policies. Thus, the main focus is whether a European Union 'policy-making state' is being created via changes in the distribution of power between member states and the European level institutions over time. In addition to several overview chapters (such as on agenda setting in the EU), there are twelve sectoral studies which analyse the differing trajectories and outcomes of the Europeanization process and the extent to which the European Union can make 'authoritative allocations'. The case studies have been selected in order to illustrate the degree of cross-sectoral variation in the process of Europeanization, from sectors which have yet to see very much Europeanization, such as health, to sectors such as competition policy which are almost fully Europeanized. The book is consciously multi-theoretic in its approach, drawing on a range of theories and concepts, from theories of European integration, to theories of public policy processes."--Publisher's website
