Political conflict in Western Europe by Hanspeter Kriesi( )

20 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What are the consequences of globalization for the structure of political conflicts in Western Europe? How are political conflicts organized and articulated in the twenty-first century? And how does the transformation of territorial boundaries affect the scope and content of political conflicts? This book sets out to answer these questions by analyzing the results of a study of national and European electoral campaigns, protest events and public debates in six West European countries. While the mobilization of the losers in the processes of globalization by new right populist parties is seen to be the driving force of the restructuring of West European politics, the book goes beyond party politics. It attempts to show how the cleavage coalitions that are shaping up under the impact of globalization extend to state actors, interest groups and social movement organizations, and how the new conflicts are framed by the various actors involved"--

The politics of advanced capitalism( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book serves as a sequel to two distinguished volumes on capitalism: Continuity and Change in Contemporary Capitalism (Cambridge University Press, 1999) and Order and Conflict in Contemporary Capitalism (1985). Both volumes took stock of major economic challenges advanced industrial democracies faced, as well as the ways political and economic elites dealt with them. However, during the last decades, the structural environment of advanced capitalist democracies has undergone profound changes: sweeping deindustrialization, tertiarization of the employment structure, and demographic developments. This book provides a synthetic view, allowing the reader to grasp the nature of these structural transformations and their consequences in terms of the politics of change, policy outputs, and outcomes. In contrast to functionalist and structuralist approaches, the book advocates and contributes to a 'return of electoral and coalitional politics' to political economy research"-
Political communication in direct democratic campaigns : enlightening or manipulating? by Hanspeter Kriesi( )

22 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Interest in political campaigns and the role of the media has increased dramatically over the last few years. Political Communication in Direct Democratic Campaigns offers an impressively broad study of the interactions among politicians, the media and citizens. Based on a comprehensive data collection on three direct democratic campaigns in Switzerland, the contributors to this volume offer fascinating new insights on how media and politicians interact and how this interaction affects and is affected by citizens. Given the innovative and comprehensive design of the data collection this book will influence future work on political communcation.' - Simon Hug, Department of Political Science and International Relations, University of Geneva, Switzerland
Democracy in the age of globalization and mediatization by Hanspeter Kriesi( Book )

18 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a comprehensive overview over the models of contemporary democracy, its social, cultural, economic and political prerequisites, empirically existing varieties, and the two major challenges - globalization and mediatization - confronting established democracies today. As the boundaries of the national political communities increasingly dissolve, democracy as we know it is put into question. Similarly, as the role of the media in politics increases, the way established democracies function is being transformed. The book covers the transformation of established democracies, democracy's global expansion into new countries, as well as its spread into supranational polities such as the European Union. It confronts head on democracy's constantly changing nature; its diversity of institutions and practices; its repeated need to respond to exogenous challenges and, most importantly, its perpetually unsatisfactory quest to make 'real-existing democracy' conform better to 'potentially ideal democracy.'"--Publisher's website
Politicising Europe : integration and mass politics( Book )

13 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Politicising Europe presents the most comprehensive contribution to empirical research on politicisation to date. The study is innovative in both conceptual and empirical terms. Conceptually, the contributors develop and apply a new index and typology of politicisation. Empirically, the volume presents a huge amount of original data, tracing politicisation in a comparative perspective over more than forty years. Focusing on six European countries (Austria, France, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK) from the 1970s to the current euro crisis, the book examines conflicts over Europe in election campaigns, street protests, and public debates on every major step in the integration process. It shows that European integration has indeed become politicised. However, the patterns and developments differ markedly across countries and arenas, and many of the key hypotheses on the driving forces of change need to be revisited in view of new findings"-
Social movements in a globalizing world( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The growing interdependence on a global scale, which characterizes the human condition at the turn of the century, constitutes a challenge for both the mobilization of social movements and social movement theory. The present volume attempts to adjust the perspective of the 'political process' approach to a world in which political opportunities, mobilizing structures, framing processes and collective action of social movements are no longer confined to national political contexts
Social movements in a globalizing world by Donatella Della Porta( Book )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary Switzerland : revisiting the special case by Kriesi et Al( )

15 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Traditionally outside observers have tended to idealize Switzerland, to admire its standard of living and to glorify its democratic government. Against this background, a 2004 Economist assessment that 'the Swiss island of calm is becoming a little more like other countries' is rather new." "For Swiss social scientists, this outside assessment is a confirmation of what they have come to observe for some time. They have been engaged in a large-scale research programme to describe and analyse the transformation of Swiss society. This volume presents the major findings involved in this programme, focusing on three key areas: the Swiss way of life, the Swiss labour market, and the country's political institutions. The book provides an impression both of current trends in Swiss society and also of the scope of this unique programme, with each argument from a comparative perspective."--BOOK JACKET
How Europeans view and evaluate democracy( )

13 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a new data-set covering 29 European and neighboring countries, this volume shows how, Europeans view and evaluate democracy: what are their conceptions of democracy, how do they assess the quality of democracy in their own country, and to what extent do they consider their country's democracy as legitimate? The study shows that Europeans share a common view of liberal democracy, which is complemented by elements of social and direct democracy, which go beyond the basic liberal model. The level of their demands in terms of democracy varies, however, considerably across Europe and is related to their assessment of democracy: the worse the quality of democracy in a given country, the higher the respective demands on democracy. The analysis of the determinants of democratic views and evaluations shows that they depend on the political and economic (but less on the cultural) context conditions. Comparative Politics is a series for students, teachers, and researchers of political science that deals with contemporary government and politics. Global in scope, books in the series are characterised by a stress on comparative analysis and strong methodological rigour.0
European party politics in times of crisis by Swen Hutter( )

11 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Introduction Our key question in this book is how the multiple crises that Europe faced in the aftermath of the Great Recession influenced the intensity and structuration of political conflict in national party systems. In particular, we ask how the cultural integration-demarcation divide that had been shaping up in north-western Europe before the onset of the Great Recession was affected by these multiple crises and whether this divide was 'traveling' to the European south and east. Figure 1.1: Theoretical framework Embedding the economic crisis in a long-term perspective As outlined, we first introduce the three long-term structural factors that we consider to have had a decisive influence on the structuration of party competition in the long run. As shown in Figure 1.1,these are long-term processes of societal change, regime legacies and the ever more important multi-level system of European governance. /or fascist regimes. Only in Italy did the fascist right survive the fall of the regime and was able to organise itself openly. But, paradoxically, the Italian neo-fascists started to decline at the very moment when the radical right began its rise in NWE, precisely because of their solid neo-fascist lineage (Ignazi 2003: 52). Only by distancing themselves from this legacy could they make a fresh start. Third, the relevance of the multi-level structure of the EU polity to national politics is likely to vary not only between member states and non-member states of the EU, but also among member states. During the Great Recession, it was arguably more important for Eurozone members and, among the latter for the debtor states which became the object of supranational crisis management. The structuration of party competition at the onset of the Great Recession"--
Direct democratic choice : the Swiss experience by Hanspeter Kriesi( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The less competent and less interested citizens either do not vote or, if they do, employ heuristic shortcuts allowing them to make approximately reasonable decisions. Kriesi provides strong support for an optimistic view of direct-democratic decision making but also indicates that this process, wherever it occurs, can be improved by proper institutional design and by appropriate strategies enacted by the political elite."--Jacket

Urban mobilizations and new media in contemporary China by Lisheng Dong( )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular protests are on the rise in China. However, since protesters rely on existing channels of participation and on patronage by elite backers, the state has been able to stymie attempts to generalize resistance and no large scale political movements have significantly challenged party rule. Yet the Chinese state is not monolithic. Decentralization has increased the power of local authorities, creating space for policy innovations and opening up the political opportunity structure. Popular protest in China - particularly in urban realm- not only benefits from the political fragmentation of the state, but also from the political communications revolution. The question of how and to what extent the internet can be used for mobilizing popular resistance in China is hotly debated. The government, virtual social organizations, and individual netizens both cooperate and compete with each other on the web. New media both increases the scope of the mobilizers and the mobilized (thereby creating new social capital), and provides the government with new means of social control (thereby limiting the political impact of the growing social capital). This volume is the first of its kind to assess the ways new media influence the mobilization of popular resistance and its possible effects in China today.--
