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

33 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 655 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

Germany, Europe, and the politics of constraint( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

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

10 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 209 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

States, debt, and power : 'saints' and 'sinners' in European history and integration by Kenneth H. F Dyson( Book )

15 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

States, Debt, and Power argues for the importance of situating our contextually influenced thinking about European states and debt within a commitment to historically informed and critical analysis. It teases out certain broad historical patterns. The book also examines the inescapably difficult and contentious judgements about 'bad' and 'good' debt; about what constitutes sustainable debt; and about distributive justice at times of sovereign debt crisis. These judgements offer insight into the nature of power and the contingent nature of sovereign creditworthiness. Three themes weave through the book: the significance of creditor-debtor state relations in defining asymmetry of power; the context-specific and constructed character of debt, above all in relation to war; and the limitations of formal economic reasoning in the face of radical uncertainty. Part I examines case studies from Ancient Greece to the modern Euro Area and brings together a wealth of historical data that cast fresh light on how sovereign debt problems are debated and addressed. Part II looks at the conditioning and constraining framework of law, culture, and ideology and their relationship to the use of policy instruments. Part III shows how the problems of matching the assumption of liability with the exercise of control are rooted in external trade and financial imbalances and external debt; in financial markets and vulnerability to banking crisis; in the character of the 'private governance of public debt'; in who has power over indicators of sustainability; in domestic institutional and political arrangements; and in sub-national fiscal governance. Part IV looks at how the problems of mismatch between liability and control take on an acute form within the historical context of European monetary union, above all in Euro Area debt crises.--
