Democracy past and future by Pierre Rosanvallon( )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 1,914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rosanvallon was originally known as a primary theorist of the 'second left', which hoped to stake out a non-Marxist progressive alternative to the irresistible appeal of revolutionary politics. In fact, Rosanvallon revived the theory of 'civil society' even before its usage by East European dissidents made it globally popular as a non-statist politics of freedom and pluralism. His ideas have been shaped by a variety of influences, ranging from his work with an influential French union to his teachers François Furet and Claude Lefort."
The society of equals by Pierre Rosanvallon( )

34 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1980s, society's wealthiest members have claimed an ever-expanding share of income and property. It has been a true counterrevolution, says Pierre Rosanvallon--the end of the age of growing equality launched by the American and French revolutions. And just as significant as the social and economic factors driving this contemporary inequality has been a loss of faith in the ideal of equality itself. An ambitious transatlantic history of the struggles that, for two centuries, put political and economic equality at their heart, The Society of Equals calls for a new philosophy of social relations to reenergize egalitarian politics. For eighteenth-century revolutionaries, equality meant understanding human beings as fundamentally alike and then creating universal political and economic rights. Rosanvallon sees the roots of today's crisis in the period 1830-1900, when industrialized capitalism threatened to quash these aspirations. By the early twentieth century, progressive forces had begun to rectify some imbalances of the Gilded Age, and the modern welfare state gradually emerged from Depression-era reforms. But new economic shocks in the 1970s began a slide toward inequality that has only gained momentum in the decades since. -- Publsiher website
Democratic legitimacy : impartiality, reflexivity, proximity by Pierre Rosanvallon( )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author argues that the modern crisis of confidence in political leaders is a crisis of understanding. He makes the case that the sources of democratic legitimacy have multiplied and that we need to comprehend and make better use of these new sources of legitimacy in order to strengthen our self-belief and commitment to democracy
The new social question : rethinking the welfare state by Pierre Rosanvallon( Book )

49 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rosanvallon argues that social policies must be more narrowly targeted. And he draws on evidence form around the world, in particular France and the U.S., to show that such programs as unemployment insurance and workfare could better reflect individual needs by, for example, making more explicit use of contracts between the providers and receivers of benefits. His arguments have broad implications for welfare programs everywhere and for our understanding of citizenship in modern democracies and economies."--Jacket
Counter-democracy : politics in an age of distrust by Pierre Rosanvallon( )

28 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Democracy is established as a generally uncontested ideal, while regimes inspired by this form of government fall under constant criticism. Hence, the steady erosion of confidence in representatives that has become one of the major political issues of our time. Amidst these challenges, the paradox remains that while citizens are less likely to make the trip to the ballot box, the world is far from entering a phase of general political apathy. Demonstrations and activism abound in the streets, in cities across the globe and on the internet. Pierre Rosanvallon analyses the mechanisms used to register a citizen's expression of confidence or distrust, and then focuses on the role that distrust plays in democracy from both a historical and theoretical perspective. This radical shift in perspective uncovers a series of practices - surveillance, prevention, and judgement - through which society corrects and exerts pressure

53 editions published between 1981 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Entre un Etat-providence que l'on a de plus en plus de mal à se payer et un retour au libéralisme et aux règles impitoyables du marché, l'auteur esquisse une troisième voie qui, fondée sur la notion de solidarité, soulagerait le fardeau de l'Etat sans pour autant consacrer la ruine de la notion de justice sociale: diminuer la part de l'Etat tout en augmentant celle du social
Le sacre du citoyen histoire du suffrage universel en France by Pierre Rosanvallon( Book )

28 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Si la démocratie est à la fois un régime (la souveraineté du peuple) et une religion (la célébration d'une société des égaux), elle trouve dans le suffrage universel sa double matrice. L'auteur, directeur d'études à l'Ecole des hautes études, reconstruit dans toute sa complexité l'histoire intellectuelle de cette conquête
The demands of liberty : civil society in France since the Revolution by Pierre Rosanvallon( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pierre Rosanvallon argues that the French have cherished and demonized Jacobinism at the same time; their hearts followed Robespierre, but their heads turned toward Benjamin Constant. The Demands of Liberty traces the long history of resistance to Jacobinism, including the creation of associations and unions and the implementation of elements of decentralization. Behind the ideological triumph of the state lies the conflicting creation of an active civil society." "In exploring these tensions, Rosanvallon takes the debate far beyond traditional views of liberalism versus republicanism and offers an innovative analysis of why the French system has worked despite Jacobinism."--Jacket

18 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in French and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La démocratie constitue, depuis deux siècles, l'horizon du bien politique. Mais elle semble en même temps inachevée ou trahie.

Alors que se multiplient les considérations inquiètes sur la démocratie, l'auteur voudrait indiquer la voie d'une lucidité positive.

Le moment Guizot by Pierre Rosanvallon( Book )

17 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in French and Spanish and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

François Guizot (1787-1874), funcionario tras la caída de Napoleón, opositor liberal en la década de 1820, figura central durante toda la monarquía de Julio hasta su caída con la Revolución de 1848, había sido olvidado, al igual que todos los pensadores liberales de ese período, atrapados todos entre dos tiempos fuertes de la teoría política moderna: el apogeo revolucionario, por un lado, y los comienzos de la tradición socialista, por el otro. La reevaluación de esta corriente comenzó con nuevos enfoques sobre Alexis de Tocqueville y Benjamin Constant. Pierre Rosanvallon recupera con este libro, a través de su dirigente más reconocido, a los llamados liberales doctrinarios, que primero plantearon una colaboración con la monarquía posnapoleónica y luego se erigieron en los representantes más conservadores del liberalismo en el poder a partir de 1830. Esta recuperación implica, para las generaciones presentes, volver a pensar la política, remontándose a los orígenes del gran debate alrededor del liberalismo y de la democracia. No se encontrará aquí una biografía intelectual o política, ni una historia de Guizot y su tiempo, sino un esfuerzo por desentrañar el sistema que subyace al pensamiento de Guizot, evitando oponer, como se ha hecho habitualmente, el período liberal del político previo a 1830 con el período conservador del ejercicio del poder. La obra reconstruye la lógica interna de un pensamiento que condensa, de manera ejemplar, los logros y los obstáculos del conservadurismo liberal en su expresión más fuerte en Francia. El momento Guizot es el de las paradojas de la educación política de la burguesía del siglo XIX

Good government : democracy beyond elections by Pierre Rosanvallon( Book )

11 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few would disagree that Western democracies are experiencing a crisis of representation. In the United States, gerrymandering and concentrated political geographies have placed the Congress and state legislatures in a stranglehold that is often at odds with public opinion. Campaign financing ensures that only the affluent have voice in legislation. Europeans, meanwhile, increasingly see the European Union as an anti-democratic body whose "diktats" have no basis in popular rule. The response, however, has not been an effective pursuit of better representation. In Good Government, Pierre Rosanvallon examines the long history of the alternative to which the public has gravitated: the empowered executive. Rosanvallon argues that, faced with everyday ineptitude in governance, people become attracted to strong leaders and bold executive action. If these fail, they too often want even stronger personal leadership. Whereas nineteenth-century liberals and reformers longed for parliamentary sovereignty, nowadays few contest the "imperial presidency." Rosanvallon traces this history from the Weimar Republic to Charles De Gaulle's "exceptional" presidency to the Bush-Cheney concentration of executive power. Europeans rebelling against the technocratic EU and Americans fed up with the "administrative state" have turned to charismatic figures, from Donald Trump to Viktor Orbán, who tout personal strength as their greatest asset. This is not just a right-wing phenomenon, though, as liberal contentment with Obama's drone war demonstrates. Rosanvallon makes clear that contemporary "presidentialism" may reflect the particular concerns of the moment, but its many precursors demonstrate that democracy has always struggled with tension between popular government and concentrated authority.--
