Bureaucratic elites in western European states by Edward Page( Book )

27 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bureaucratic Elites in Western European States provides information about the structures and composition of the higher civil service and its position in the political structure through a comparative analysis of Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Greece, Denmark, and Sweden. The book explores how higher civil service has developed in the light of the massive changes in European societies in the past thirty years. Changes include the size of the top level of the civil service, the growing social diversity of its ranks, and the tendency to recruit from outside the civil service. The book also examines whether wider social changes, such as the democratization of education, the growth of interest groups, and the increasing importance of the European Union have an impact on the higher levels of bureaucracy and produce similar patterns of change throughout Europe."--Jacket

Developments in West European politics 2( Book )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Western Europe is changing fast and dramatically. The traditional models of nation-state politics have been challenged by increasing political and economic integration in the European Union, the end of the Cold War division of the continent, the emergence of a global political economy and of new forms of ethnic and cultural identity. All aspects of political life have been affected, from institutions and policies, to party systems, values and beliefs. Developments in West European Politics brings together specially commissioned chapters by leading authorities to provide a tightly integrated analysis of politics, government and public policy set in a broad economic and social context. Its core focus is on the extent to which a new multilevel system of governance is emerging, its character and its implications
Federalizing Europe? : the costs, benefits, and preconditions of federal political systems( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors examine the issue at the level of the Union, the member states, and the states of Central and Eastern Europe, reflecting the increasing interdependence and interplay of these three levels: nation states in all parts of Europe influencing one another and the Union, and being influenced by it. The book concludes with an overall assessment of the federalizing processes at work in Europe, both at the Union and the nation state level, and points out the problems, paradoxes, and likely outcomes of these processes
The national co-ordination of EU policy : the domestic level by Hussein Kassim( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eschewing the 'Europeanisation' problematic within which the issue is usually addressed, this book adopts a broader, more inclusive approach. It examines domestic processes and investigates co-ordination in ten member states - Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom - looking at co-ordinating ambitions, the actors involved in EU policy making, and the structures and processes by which policy is made." "From a comparative perspective, the book identifies and assesses the impact of the influences that have shaped systems of national co-ordination - the demands exerted by Union membership, the institutional structure of the national polity, the pre-existing balance between domestic institutions, administrative norms and values, and attitudes, both popular and elite, to European integration. It assesses the extent to which there has been a convergent response to the administrative challenges posed by membership on the part of the member states or whether a pattern of divergence emerges. The effectiveness of member states in influencing policy outcomes at the European level is also addressed."--Jacket

The government and politics of France by Andrew Knapp( Book )

11 editions published between 1978 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Government and Politics of France has been the leading textbook on French politics for over a generation, and continues to provide students with a comprehensive and incisive introduction to the intricacies of French politics and government. This edition updates every chapter, with the addition of a new chapter on France and Europe. Recent events necessitate a new edition, particularly the 2002 elections and the growing interpenetration of France and the EU in student programmes, as well as in the real world. Whether covering the shifting balance within France's two-headed executive, the paradoxes of the French party politics, the power and fragmentation of France's administration, the growing assertiveness of French local government, or the newly visible world of the judiciary, The Government and Politics of France has always sought to confront established paradigms with the complex and untidy reality of French politics at the grass roots."--Publisher's description

10 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book looks at the way in which advice is provided to the summit of government in twelve advanced industrialized countries. It looks at the organization and staffing of advice for the heads of executives in eight European countries (Britain, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain and Sweden) as well as Australia, Canada, Japan and the USA. The book examines the increasing pressures for centralization as core executives conform the differentiation and pluralization of government and the interplay of constitutional, political and institutional factors, and above all the governmental tradition in each system."--Jacket
