Most widely held works by Kenneth H. F Dyson
The state tradition in Western Europe : a study of an idea and institution by Kenneth H. F Dyson( Book )

32 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why have continental European societies developed the idea of the abstract impersonal state as the fundamental institution of political rule? Why, on the other hand, has this idea played a relatively insignificant part in the history of English-speaking countries? It is to such questions that this major study is addressed. With clarity and conciseness, Kenneth Dyson examines the fascinating tapestry of thought about public authority that the state tradition represents, and identifies the major individual contributions to that tapestry. In addition to offering a clear conceptualisation of state, he deals with such key issues as the role of the intellectual, the social function of state theories, and the difficulties of accommodating state and democracy."--Publisher's website

"The book's 17 chapters focus on three key themes: the challenge to the power of Germany to determine the course of the integrationist project and to shape European public policies; the increasing constraints in the domestic political arena associated with Europeanization; and domestic contestation over both the 'constitutive politics of the EU' and specific policy choices. This volume is essential reading for students of comparative European politics and German studies."--Jacket

The Euro at 10 : Europeanization, power, and convergence by Kenneth H. F Dyson( Book )

18 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) the European Union is embarked on a major historic political project of formidable technical complexity. In January 2009 the Euro Area will be ten years old. What does the evidence from the first decade tell us about the significance of the euro for the EU and its member states? This book brings together a range of recognized academic specialists to examine the main political aspects of this question. How, and in what ways, has the euro Europeanized states (members and non-members), their institutions, policies and politics? What have been its effects on the location and use of power? Has the euro generated convergence or divergence? What political patterns can be identified? The book offers the first, in-depth and systematic political analysis of the first decade of the euro. It places the euro in its global and European contexts; offers a set of case studies of its effects on a representative sample of EU member states ('Anglo-Saxon', old 'D-Mark Zone', east central European and Baltic, Mediterranean, and Nordic); and looks at three key sectors (financial markets, wages and collective bargaining, and welfare reform). The book contributes to Europeanization studies, comparative political economy, and studies of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). It will be of major interest to students of the European Union and European integration, comparative European politics, and area and 'country' studies

Culture first! : promoting standards in the new media age( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the 'digital code' begins to penetrate the whole of our social fabric, we are increasingly conscious of living in a new era whose scale, dimensions and implications we do not fully comprehend. 'Interactivity', 'virtual reality' and 'global communications' are some of the most obvious dimensions of this new reality. Its implications include new cross-media acquisitions and mergers by players like Murdoch, Viacom and Disney and major questions about the future of printed word and reading." "This book does not attempt to offer a broad survey of the new 'digital age' in all its aspects. Instead, it restricts its questions to cultural standards and the issue of quality in media, to questions with an unavoidably normative content." "Culture First! challenges two fashionable arguments in cultural studies and media studies: that, in the modern 'digital age' of reproduction and simulation, technological change has made traditional conceptions of standards and quality in media obsolescent; that we can feel secure about standards in the face of evidence that the user of media is actively selecting, interpreting and remaking media culture." "Culture First! argues that the proper study of culture is normative; and that the proper, and neglected, purpose of cultural studies should be the nurturing of normative argument and judgement. This purpose can be better pursued if we return to the distinction between our 'best self' and our 'ordinary self' when thinking about cultural questions; if we seek to articulate and think rigorously about aesthetic and ethical standards; and if we recognize the specific cultural values of the printed word and reading as an activity and that the printed word is more than just a medium."--BOOK JACKET

Small and medium sized enterprises by Kenneth H. F Dyson( Book )

17 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The single European market after 1992 presents a major challenge to small and medium-sized companies in the Community. Whether it is developing exports and/or fighting off new imports, Europe's entrepreneurs will have to think European'. Moreover, the European Community institutions themselves have developed special policies designed to promote the interests of Europe's smaller companies. This volume explains how the EC's policies towards small and medium-sized enterprises have developed and what they currently entail. It guides the reader through the various EC policy initiatives and the new legislation - including that in the 1992' package - relevant to the smaller business company. It offers summaries of the key EC documents concerned, and presents a full listing of all the other relevant proposals and policies. Like the others in this series, the volume is both comprehensive and up-to-date: it discusses not only what the EC has done which is relevant to small businesses, but also what it is proposing to do in the future
