In Bright Particular Stars, David McKie examines the impact of twenty-six remarkable British eccentrics on twenty-six unremarkable British locations. From Broadway in the Cotswolds, where the Victorian bibliomaniac Sir Thomas Phillipps nurtured dreams of possessing every book in the world, to Kilwinning in Scotland, where in 1839 the Earl of Eglinton mounted a tournament that was Renaissance in its extravagance and disastrous in its execution, McKie leads us to places transformed, inspired and sometimes scandalized by the obsessional endeavours of visionary mavericks. Some of McKie's eccent

The Election : a voters' guide by David McKie( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As well as the detailed analysis of the central areas of policy over which the Election will be fought, this book focuses on the key personalities, from the party leader to their respective spin doctors. It looks at the crucial marginal seats and reruns the 1992 result taking into account the boundary changes that have since moved voters around.

With contributions from "The Guardian"'s political writers, it also takes a look at the MPs who won't be gracing the next parliament

Democracy and complexity : a realist approach by Danilo Zolo( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a highly original and provocative contribution to democratic theory. Zolo argues that the increasing complexity of modern societies represents a fundamental challenge to the basic assumptions of the Western democratic tradition and calls for a reformulation of some of the key questions of political theory. Zolo maintains that, as modern societies become more complex and more involved in the `information revolution', they are subjected to new and unprecedented forms of evolutionary stress - as manifested, for instance, in the growing autonomy and power of political parties

Cosmopolis : prospects for world government by Danilo Zolo( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a challenging critique of the idea of Cosmopolis - that is, the idea of world or 'global government'. In recent years this idea has been put forward as a way of averting the threat of war and international disorder, and as a way of avoiding the destruction of the planet. Proponents of this idea call for a radical reform of the United Nations which aims to legitimize this institution as an international police force and as a provider of global justice
Reflexive epistemology : the philosophical legacy of Otto Neurath by Danilo Zolo( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Danilo Zolo has written an account of Otto Neurath's epistemology which deserves careful reading by all who have studied the development of 20th century philosophy of science. Here we see the philosophical Neurath in his mature states of mind, the vigorous critic, the scientific Utopian, the pragmatic realist, the sociologist of physics and of language, the unifier and encyclopedist, always the empiricist and always the conscience of the Vienna Circle. Zolo has caught the message of Neurath's ship-at-sea in the reflexivity of language, and he has sensibly explicated the persisting threat posed by consistent conventionalism. And then Zolo beautifully articulates of the 'epistemological priority of sociology'. the provocative theme Was Neurath correct? Did he have his finger on the pulse of empiricism in the time of a genuine unity of the sciences? His friends and colleagues were unable to follow all the way with him, but Danilo Zolo has done so in this stimulating investigation of what he tellingly calls Otto Neurath's 'philosophical legacy' .
