Democracy, governance, and economic performance : East and Southeast Asia( Book )

15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore have progressively turned to technological innovation as the primary engine of development while the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia have focused on incorporation in regional/global production systems." "In evaluating democratic development, the study focuses particularly on the condition of parties and party systems. In relation to economic governance, the idea of a developmental state provides a template against which the practices of individual states are evaluated." "The political and policy-making institutions within these states must now negotiate responses to the financial crisis of the late 1990s. Ultimate outcomes will be determined on one hand by the capacity of political systems to sustain popular support and, on the other, by the capacity of institutions to rework dysfunctional economic arrangements."--Jacket

People and Parliament in the European Union : participation, democracy, and legitimacy by Jean Blondel( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book sets out to analyse the relationship between people and parliament in the European Union and the problem of participation in European Parliament elections. It begins by examining the concepts of democracy and legitimacy as applied to the supranational level of governance, by briefly reviewing approaches to the study of turnout, including the approach embodied in the second-order-election model, and by describing the main features of the survey (Eurobarometer 41.1, (1994)) on which the study is based. The book summarizes the trends in turnout in European Parliament elections and makes a key distinction between circumstantial and voluntary abstention. This is followed by a series of chapters dealing with attitudes to European integration, the European Parliament, and European elections, each chapter concluding with a bivariate analysis of the relationship between such attitudes and participation/abstention in European Parliament elections. The trends in attitudes and in turnout are also considered on a country-by-country basis. -- From http://www.oxfordscholarship.com/view/10.1093/0198293089.001.0001/acprof-9780198293088 (Oct. 23, 2012)
Political leadership : towards a general analysis by Jean Blondel( Book )

11 editions published in 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Political leaders are the most universal, recognized, and talked about element of political life. However, the general analysis of political leadership has been little advanced. In this book Professor Blondel provides a general framework for the systematic study of leadership to make possible future empirical study and comparative analysis of political leadership. After examining the current state of political leadership studies, Professor Blondel categorizes the leaders of the world taking into account both their goals and the constraints and opportunities resulting from the environment. Important features and influences on leadership are identified: the sources of personal power, the role of leaders' own psychology and perspective, the instruments of power available to leaders, their relationship with subordinates and citizens, the influence of institutions on leadership and the impact of leaders"--provided by publisher
Government ministers in the contemporary world by Jean Blondel( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ministerial careers and the structure of ministerial careers have been largely neglected areas of study in political science. This third volume of Jean Blondel's comparative study of governments is the first book to explore this important area by examining the similarities and differences among government ministers of the world since 1945. Governments have grown in scope, and spread geographically, to the point where a new phenomenon has emerged -- rule by a political class of ministers regarded as the main instruments of change. Yet ministerial careers and the structure of ministerial careers have been largely neglected areas of study in political science. Jean Blondel's new book is a major, comparative study of the world's government ministers since 1945, which examines both their similarities and differences. Party structures, legislative behaviour, even bureaucratic arrangements vary from country to country, but the nature of the job and the status of ministers is largely uniform, making it possible to study and tackle fundamental questions and assumptions of ministerial government. This volume builds an analytical framework in order to probe the very foundation of the 'ministerial profession' and explore important questions concerning political executives. Do social, economic, cultural or institutional factors contribute to the making of good or bad ministers? Are we justified in complaining about bad government? And, does high ministerial turnover contribute to bad government?"--provided by publisher

The nature of party government : a comparative European perspective by Jean Blondel( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and Chinese and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The nature of party government" examines relationships between governments and supporting parties on a comparative European basis. The book does so at the level of principles: there is a major conflict between governments, which should govern and parties, which being representative, wish to shape the way governments operate. The book studies relationships empirically as well: it shows that they occur on three plans, appointments, policy-making and patronage and assesses the extent of two-way influences, from parties to governments and from governments to parties"--provided by publisher
Political cultures in Asia and Europe : citizens, states and societal values by Jean Blondel( Book )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Japanese and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Political Cultures in Asia and Europe is a study of attitudes to political and social life among the citizens of eighteen countries in Western Europe and East and Southeast Asia. Drawing on data from the largest cross-national survey on political culture for the last half a century, this book assesses how political culture differs across the two regions and whether this can be drawn back to a profound difference in basic societal values, or 'Asian values'. Examining geographical, religious and socio-economic factors, the authors discuss whether there really is a common political value in the two regions or a profound difference as these countries move towards modernity and beyond."--Jacket
