Political institutions : democracy and social choice by Josep Maria Colomer( )

32 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 1,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The role of institutions is to establish the domains of public activity and the rules to select leaders. Democratic regimes organized in simple institutional frameworks foster the concentration of power and alternative successive absolute winners and losers. They favour political satisfaction of relatively small groups, as well as policy instability. In contrast, pluralistic institutions produce multiple winners, including multiparty co-operation and agreements. They favour stable, moderate, and consensual policies that can satisfy large groups' interests on a great number of issues." "The more complex the political institutions, the more stable and socially efficient the outcome will be. This book develops an extensive analysis of this relationship. It explores concepts, questions and insights based on social choice theory, while empirical focus is cast on more that 40 democratic countries and a few international organizations from late medieval times to the present. The book argues that pluralistic democratic institutions are better than simple formulas for their higher capacity of producing socially satisfactory results."--Jacket
Strategic transitions : game theory and democratization by Josep Maria Colomer( )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Great empires, small nations : the uncertain future of the sovereign state by Josep Maria Colomer( Book )

18 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Colomer's book is a stimulating read, certainly for anyone willing to entertain nonconventional observations that hold up well in what is happening in the world. His most important argument is that global public services, such as security, a trading system, an international monetary regime, and communication networks provided by large democratic entities such as the United States and the European Union provide opportunities for small countries and regions to prosper. The successful smaller units - like Ireland or Catalonia - trade more in proportion to their economies than large ones, are generally more democratic, and have more multilingual populations. I expect this book to be widely read and greatly admired."--Sidney Weintraub, William E. Simon Chair in Political Economy, Centre for Strategic and International Studies, Washington DC, USA

How global institutions rule the world by Josep Maria Colomer( Book )

19 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Does world government actually exist? Are the current global institutions efficient in making decisions? Can they be compatible with basic democratic principles? This book holds that, indeed, world government does exist. Rulers of the World shows how the world is actually ruled by a few dozen global bureaus, organizations, funds, banks, courts and self-appointed directorates. They use different representation, voting and organizational formulas, yet the variety of arrangements of the global institutions is not an indicator of weak capacity of decision-making or of policy enforcement, but it reflects the extensive scope of their activities and the complexity of the global agenda of issues. With the appropriate institutional design, global government needs to be made compatible with a notion of accountable democratic rule"--
Game theory and the transition to democracy : the Spanish model by Josep Maria Colomer( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Game Theory and the Transition to Democracy analyses strategic behaviour and political interactions during the key political episodes in the Spanish transition, explaining why it was such a successful process. Emphasising the agenda-setting, bargaining and strategic decision-making roles of central actors, this book uses a rational choice methodology to model the transition to democracy in Spain. This book sheds new light on the process of transition to democracy and will be welcomed by historians and political scientists both as a key contribution to the historical understanding of the period and as a seminal application of rational choice analysis

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There were several attempts at uniting the kingdoms of Castile and Leon under a single crown during the period from the 11th to the 13th centuries. They involved the assassination of two Kings of Leon for the Kings of Castile to be able to marry their bride and sister, respectively; two divisions of the temporarily united kingdoms between several heirs who fought a few wars among themselves; the assassination of a king of Castile by that of Leon; the break of a uniting marriage; and a more peaceful marriage between the King of Leon and the Queen of Castile, who formed the Crown of Castile, also including Galicia, and led to the reign of the Trastamara dynasty from mid-14th century on. In parallel, the formation of the Crown of Aragon involved the initial assassination of the heirs of two parts of the Kingdom"--

The science of politics : an introduction by Josep Maria Colomer( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At long last, a text that puts science back into political science; at the same time, it is not an 'American government and politics' text masquerading as an introduction to political science. I am delighted with it. The central concept of the 'public good' lends coherence to the organization of the book and allows Josep M. Colomer to integrate a vast amount of material encompassing all levels of analysis. The product is a remarkable achievement."-Abdalla Battah Minnesota State University Mankato

Grandes imperios, pequeñas naciones = Inperio handiak, nazio txikiak by Josep Maria Colomer( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El autogobierno de una comunidad pequeña es actualmente posible sin un ejército propio, fronteras ni aduanas: sin un estado soberano. Las naciones pequeñas son hoy viables gracias a los mercados y los bienes públicos provistos por vastos imperios, como los Estados Unidos de América y la Unión Europea. En cambio, los estados tradicionales son demasiado pequeños para la seguridad, el comercio y la comunicación, y demasiado grandes para un buen autogobierno democrático. El estado español ya no es lo que era y no será lo que pudo haber sido: un estado nacional uniforme bajo un modelo westfaliano y francés. Para pequeñas naciones europeas como Cataluña, Euskadi y tantas otras, la diferencia entre la independencia formal y la autonomía es sólo una cuestión de grado. La verdadera "soberanía" consiste en tener un lugar en la mesa de la Unión Europea."--Contratapa

Persian letters by Charles de Secondat Montesquieu( Book )

7 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in Spanish and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Obra de juventud, publicada por primera vez en 1721, las Cartas persas conocieron en su época un gran éxito de público y se convirtieron en obra maestra de un género con muchos imitadores. Mediante un punto de vista exótico —el de un persa que viaja por Europa—, Montesquieu desarrolla una observación sin prejuicios que le permite descubrir en la sociedad de su tiempo lo arbitrario y lo que sólo se sostiene en la costumbre irreflexiva cubierta por un aura de sacralización. Aun siendo en ciertos aspectos un preludio de su obra mayor, Del espíritu de las leyes, en el presente texto el autor muestra un amplio relativismo moral, un elogio de la libertad como variedad y un énfasis en la diversidad de pueblos y culturas, alejadas del rígido racionalismo ilustrado que posteriormente le llevaría a buscar relaciones más determinantes entre las leyes naturales y las leyes morales. La exposición fragmentaria, propia del género epistolar, facilita la presentación de un amplio retablo de la sociedad francesa y europea, del que surgen la denuncia del despotismo y la crítica de los dogmas del catolicismo. El estilo provocativo y desenfadado es en este caso un arma para la desmitificación de verdades establecidas y un recurso de gran escritor
Ciencia de la política : una introducción by Josep Maria Colomer( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in Spanish and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En este libro se aborda el estudio de la política desde dos puntos de partida. En este libro se aborda el estudio de la política desde dos puntos de partida: la política como una actividad humana fundamental que persigue el interés común de los miembros de una comunidad o, en términos más clásicos, el «bien público», y la política como objeto de un conocimiento sistemá- tico y fidedigno, según las normas de lo que en general llamamos «ciencia»
