When parties fail : emerging alternative organizations by Kay Lawson( Book )

12 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout history parties have faltered and new groups have emerged, but rarely has this process been so accelerated, so widespread, and so conducive to dramatic political change as in our present era. When Parties Fail explores alternative organizations in depth and comparatively. Among the organizations discussed are environmentalist groups, such as the West German and Swedish Greens, the Italian Radicals, and local protest groups in Japan, Switzerland, and the United States. Also considered are new groups seeking attention in unresponsive party systems, such as the Danish Gilstrup party, the British SDP, and American PACs; community parties and movements in Israel, India, Britain, and the American South; and antiauthoritarian movements in Poland (Solidarity), Taiwan, and Ghana. The case of France provides an example of major party survival. Three broadly comparative chapters consider the reasons for major party persistence in some nations and the causes and impact of their decline in others.The contributors to the book are David Apter, Myron J. Aronoff, Liang-shing Fan, Frank B. Feigert, Zvi Gitelman, Ronald J. Herring, Jon Kraus, Kay Lawson, Tom Mackie, Peter H. Merkl, Raffaela Y. Nanetti, Angelo Panebianco, Mogens N.

The Federal Republic of Germany at forty-five : union without unity( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tackles the question of just where the new Federal Republic of Germany currently stands and where it appears to be headed. The central concern of this volume is the nation's evolving united - or disunited - sense of identity. This identity, in a constant state of flux, takes many forms: the striking differences between East and West German views; German pacifism and national pride; the role of Germany in the world; the reemergence of radical right groups; and opinions towards foreigners and the right of political asylum. Of central interest to scholars of German and European history and politics, this book is a thorough assessment of Germany in the post-wall era."--Jacket

The revival of right-wing extremism in the nineties by Peter H Merkl( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Revival of Right-Wing Extremism in the Nineties takes a refreshingly original approach to the phenomenon of the radical right. Most studies in this field have tended to concentrate on particular movements in a single country, neglecting to a greater or lesser extent the international dimensions of right-wing extremism. Peter Merkl and Leonard Weinberg, by contrast, adopt a comparative perspective, concentrating on the revival of the right across a variety of countries. The book, for example, contains data from Lauri Karvonen reviewing levels of support for rightist values in all members of the European Union, a chapter by Piero Ignazi discussing the appearance of a 'silent counter-revolution' all over western Europe, and Peter Merkl's exploration of the reasons for the popularity of right-wing parties in Europe at this particular point in the continent's history
