Transitions from authoritarian rule by Guillermo A O'Donnell( Book )

77 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in English and held by 1,575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Political science scholars consider the four-volume work Transitions from Authoritarian Rule to be a foundational text for studying the process of democratization, specifically in those cases where an authoritarian regime is giving way to some form of democratic government. The most important of the four books is without a doubt the fourth volume, Tentative Conclusions about Uncertain Democracies, also known as "the little green book." Transitions from Authoritarian Rule was the first book in any language to systematically compare the process of transition from authoritarianism across a broad range of countries. Political democracy is not the only possible outcome. Guillermo O'Donnell, Philippe C. Schmitter, and Laurence Whitehead emphasize that it's not the revolution but the transition that is critical to the growth of a democratic state. This ground-breaking insight remains highly relevant as the ramifications of the Arab Spring continue to play out. This reissue features a new foreword by Cynthia J. Arnson, director of the Latin American Program at the Woodow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and Abraham F. Lowenthal, founding director of the Latin American Program, who wrote the original volume's foreword". --Page 4 de la couverture

Brazilian foreign policy in changing times : the quest for autonomy from Sarney to Lula by Tullo Vigevani( )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyzes Brazilian foreign policy after the democratic opening of the country in the mid-1980s. To illuminate this topic, authors Tullo Vigevani and Gabriel Cepaluni built an analytical framework which uses three concepts to examine Brazilian Foreign Policy changes over the years: (1) autonomy through distance, (2) autonomy through participation, and (3) autonomy through diversification. The authors demonstrate that the Brazilian military regime sought to distance itself from powerful countries in order to keep its domestic sovereignty, while the Brazilian democratic regimesespecially the Cardoso administrationtried to increase international connections despite practicing a foreign policy defending the nation's autonomy in relation to the great powers. With the Lula administration, the country still seeks greater international relationships but through a diversification strategy concerning its partners abroad, therefore counterbalancing the influence of the great powers, especially the United States

How to democratize the European Union-- and why bother? by Philippe C Schmitter( Book )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A contradictory creation indeed, the European Union has most of the institutions of a modern democracy, yet it does not function as one. Moreover, its growing scope of activity and supranational decision making processes are undermining the legitimacy of democracy in its member states. Much has been written about this double 'democratic deficit, ' but surprisingly little thought has been given to what to do about it_short of drafting and ratifying a new federal constitution. In this provocative book, Philippe C. Schmitter explores both the possibility and the desirability of democratizing the EU. He argues that as a 'non-state' and a 'non nation' it will have to invent new forms of citizenship, representation, and decisionmaking if it is ever to democratize itself. The author also contends that the timing and political context work against a full-scale constitutionalization of the process. He proposes a number of modest (and some less modest) reforms that could improve the situation in the near future and eventually lead to a genuine Euro-democracy

Governing capitalist economies : performance and control of economic sectors by J. Rogers Hollingsworth( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As economic sectors of various advanced industrial societies suffer in response to a decline in global growth rates, scholars, policy analysts, and government officials in a variety of countries increasingly look beyond their national boundaries for more effective models of management and industrial policy. Governing Capitalist Economies: Performance and Control of Economic Sectors offers a comparative analysis of the coordination and control of industries in North America, Japan, and Western Europe and challenges neo-classical economists' assumptions about the efficaciousness of market mechanisms as a means of enhancing economic performance. The authors explore variation in state policies in the governance of internationally competitive industries (automobiles, chemicals, consumer electronics, and steel, for example) and demonstrate how variation in state policies influences the performance of industrial sectors. The authors argue that tightly controlled sectors outperform their less-regulated counterparts in the world economy. Governing Capitalist Economies begins with an introduction to capitalism, sectors, and institutions by the editors - J. Rogers Hollingsworth, Philippe C. Schmitter, and Wolfgang Streeck - which provides a general overview and background for the ten case studies that follow. This is a timely and topical study that will provide informative reading for scholars and students of political economy, political science, and business
