National Parliaments and the European Union by Philip Norton( Book )

20 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"National parliaments are central to the political systems of western Europe. Yet what role have they played in the development of the European Union?" "This volume is the first to study in depth how national parliaments have adapted to the effects of the Single European Act and the Maastricht Treaty. Detailed studies of ten parliaments allow generalisations to be drawn about national parliaments - how they have adapted, or not adapted, to European integration. The authors provide depth, looking at each parliament from the time of membership and identifying the key stages of institutional change." "The country studies are complemented by an analysis of how changes are viewed from the institutions of the European Union and chapters that establish the context of change and pinpoint the reasons why national parliaments have changed - and the problems facing them as means of remedying the perceived 'democratic deficit' within the EU." "National parliaments figure prominently in the debate about the democratic deficit and the future of the European Union. This volume provides, for the first time, the material that is essential for an informed debate."--Jacket

Back from Westminster : British members of Parliament and their constituents by Philip Norton( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and French and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The British House of Commons has entered a period of substantial change, moving from a state of party cohesion and party leadership toward a more individualistic and active policy-making role. In the dynamic look at the British Parliament and its members, Philip Norton and David M. Wood highlight that change to more intensive constituency response and service on the part of individual members. Like members of the U.S. Congress, British Members of Parliament (MPs) are elected to represent geographical districts. The relationship between the MP and the constituency in Britain has become more important in recent years, but the major changes that have occurred in the relationship since the late 1960s have not been matched by extensive scholarly study. Some pathbreaking work has been done on the subject, but it remains overshadowed by the wealth of material focusing on MPs' activities within the legislative chambers at Westminster. This volume seeks to fill the gap by sketching and assessing the electoral significance of the MPs' constituency work and the broader political ramifications for the workings of the British Parliament. Its findings allow the MP to be seen in full. Norton and Wood argue that the constituency role has gained in importance in recent decades as MPs have become more career-oriented than their forerunners in mid-century. But a by-product of greater professionalism and careerism has been an expanded job description that may take MPs' time and energies away from playing a more effective role in helping to shape the broader policy alternatives for the United Kingdom
The new parliaments of Central and Eastern Europe by Philip Norton( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What role have parliaments played in the dramatic changes occurring in Eastern and Central Europe? Adopting a common research framework, the contributors analyse in detail the role and operations of parliaments in ten of the new democracies. They focus on what determines their capacity to have some impact on public policy. They identify the significance of parliaments operating in often hybrid systems of government, with the relationship between the executive and legislature not well defined, and with an absence of constraining influence that typify western political systems
