The Governments of Germany by Arnold J Heidenheimer( Book )

61 editions published between 1961 and 1975 in 3 languages and held by 1,680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having achieved solid marks during an adolescent testing period, having proved capable of eclipsing the faulty patterns of earlier generations -- so the argument goes -- the West German political system should now be treated as a fully mature and democratic one. Thus, President Luebke has argued that the German "postwar period" be officially considered as having been concluded. This book should help the reader decide whether German institutions ought now to be accepted as much on face value as those of other democratic Western systems. As regards progress toward German unification, however, very little has occurred during the five-year period. Considered as both societies and political systems, West and East Germany are still very much the hostile twins they were in 1961, when the Berlin wall was built. - Preface

Adenauer and the CDU; the rise of the leader and the integration of the party by Arnold J Heidenheimer( Book )

21 editions published between 1960 and 1977 in 4 languages and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study in the reestablishment of de mocratic party politics in divided and occupied Germany after the downfall of the National Socialist tyranny. Its subject is the growth of the Christian Democratic Union and the rise to power of its leader, Konrad Adenauer. Closely associated with the success of the German Federal Republic in achieving prosperity, political and military power and the status of an ally of the Western powers, the CDU has yet been the subject of widely varying evaluations. Like the regime with which it is associated, it suffers from the fact that for many observers admiration for some German post-war achievements is mixed with residual distrust and skepticism. In addition, understanding of the CDU has been handicapped by confused images of the forces it represents, lack of knowledge about its internal organization, and the overwhelming position which its leader has achieved in recent years. To observers both in Germany and abroad the dominant Chancellor and party leader appears to overshadow both party and government with the result that the 1950'S, the vital period of German reconstruction, has already been labelled the Adenauer Decade
Political corruption : a handbook by Michael Johnston( Book )

31 editions published between 1987 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The editors of this volume approached their work with a number of explicit goals: first, to compile a definitive selection of the most important literature in this rapidly developing field; second, to demonstrate important developments and continuities in the past 20 years; and third, to provide a resource for future comparative or cross-national research. Most of their selections have been published in the last 15 years; some were written especially for this volume. Scholars from all social science disciplines are represented, including law, history, sociology and communications, as well as political science. Cumulatively, the book combines descriptive richness, analytical thrust, conceptual awareness, and contextual articulation

Disparate ladders : why school and university policies differ in Germany, Japan, and Switzerland by Arnold J Heidenheimer( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study breaks new ground in examining how political factors helped lead three countries with highly regarded education systems to evolve quite different structures and processes in their secondary and higher education sectors. Their educational "ladders" are disparate because the techniques and timing for selecting students for further educational opportunities vary both among the three nations, and within the German and Swiss federal systems. The comparative analysis seeks to place the Japanese trajectory with reference to European developments, and to account for some of its unique aspects. Building on an extensive record of publication on comparative education policies and welfare state development, Heidenheimer places special emphasis on exploring the network of relationships between the various levels of the educational system and tiers of government
Business associations and the financing of political parties. A comparative study of the evolution of practices in Germany, Norway and Japan by Arnold J Heidenheimer( Book )

21 editions published between 1968 and 1976 in 4 languages and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Students of government and social power recognize that wherever governmental systems embrace popular elections, the functions and mechanisms of political finance constitute inevitable links of influence between economic structures and political processes. The transmu tation of economic power into political power has been of historic concern from ancient philosophers to modern political scientists. Efforts to discern and interpret the political roles of those engaged in funding candidates and political parties have intensified in recent years. Attention given the subject has deepened substantially in the United States since World War II and, while there have been differ ences in range and quality, serious analytical interests have also developed in numerous other nations around the world. These trends have been accompanied by increasingly more energetic and sophisti cated attempts at comparative analysis. Problems in transnational studies of political processes have always been formidable. The comparative study of political finance has been retarded by difficulties in defining units of analysis that make it possible to identify in some measurable way the effects of political fmance in precise phases of the governing process, e. g., in the per suasion of voters, in party nominating processes, in executive decision making. Cash transactions, even when known with confidence, consti tute only a partial aspect of political finance. Other shades of economic power may be equally relevant, involving services or goods directly provided, credits and other economic benefits extended or withheld, and the exercise of less tangible but equally potent influence
