This is the fully updated second edition of the presentation of the structure and workings of the national cabinets in Western European countries today. This book is based on a common framework which enables the reader to compare the origins, structure, composition and activities of these cabinets and therefore to draw lessons from this comparison. Emphasis is placed on the leadership and on the character of coalitions. At a time when ministers in Western Europe are working more and more closely together, a knowledge of the life of national cabinets has become a necessity as has also an understanding of the differences between types of cabinet decision-making in the context of reforms which are proposed of Western European governments

15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 424 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 )

21 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 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 184 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
