Political science : the science of politics by Herbert F Weisberg( )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 1,582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If at one time we thought that the movement to science would yield unification of the discipline, it is now apparent that there are many roads to science. Still, it is important for us to consider yet again what the appropriate goals are for our scientific enterprise. What works in theory building; induction and deduction; prediction and control; the search for useful principles to guide us examining these questions, we can build a better science. Political science has come so far as a discipline that different schools and scholars have different interpretations of science in the study of politics, and that diversity is important to maintain. Advances made in the study of political institutions and behavior are described in 12 essays from the 1983 annual meeting of the American Political Science Association. They do not employ any single approach to the study of the science of politics. Taken as a whole, they illustrate the multiplicity of interpretations that are presently given to the common enterprise

Political order( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is required to create and sustain a political order is debated as intensively today as it has ever been. Constitutions are being written and rewritten in many parts of the world, a great many possibilities are being explored, and much that matters deeply to millions of people hangs on the results. In the eighteen chapters, all previously unpublished, that make up the present volume, major scholars address some of the most pressing questions about political order. Under what conditions do we get political order rather than political chaos? How is political order sustained once it has been created? Do constitutions and electoral systems matter, and if so how much? Is there one best type of political order, or, if not, what is the range of viable possibilities and how should they be evaluated?
Child, family, and state( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emerged from a group of papers and commentaries presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy in September 1999, held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association in Atlanta, Georgia"--Preface
Competing principals : committees, parties, and the organization of Congress by Forrest Maltzman( Book )

3 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since Woodrow Wilson, political scientists have recognized the importance of congressional committees in the policy-making process. Congressional committees often determine what legislation will reach the floor of the House or Senate and what form that legislation will take. In spite of the broad consensus on the importance of congressional committees, there is little agreement on what explains committee action. Committees are alternately viewed as agents of the chamber, the party caucuses, or constituencies outside the institution. Each theory suggests a different distribution of power in the policy-making process

Assessing the quality of democracy( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The latest volume in this popular series focuses on the best ways to evaluate and improve the quality of new democratic regimes. The essays in part one elaborate and refine several themes of democratic quality: the rule of law, accountability, freedom, equality, and responsiveness. The second part features six comparative cases, each of which applies these thematic elements to two neighboring countries: Brazil and Chile, South Africa and Ghana, Italy and Spain, Romania and Poland, India and Bangladesh, and Taiwan and Korea
Transitional justice by American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Criminal tribunals, truth commissions, reparations, apologies, and memorializations are characteristic instruments in transitions from authoritarianism to democracy, from civil war to peace, and from state-sponsored extra-legal violence to a rights-respecting rule of law. Over the last several decades, their growing use has established transitional justice as a body of both normative theory and institutionalized practice, developing standards for judging transitional societies' efforts to address the wrongs of the past and to lay foundations for more legitimate political and legal order. In Transitional Justice a group of leading scholars in philosophy, law, and political science settle some of the key theoretical debates over the meaning of transitional justice while opening up new ones. By engaging both theorists and empirical social scientists in the analysis of the defining issues of transitional justice, Transitional Justice also illuminates the challenges of making strong empirical claims about the impact of transitional institutions"--P. [4] of cover

The evolution of political knowledge : democracy, autonomy, and conflict in comparative and international politics by American Political Science Association( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of the last century, political scientists have been moved by two principal purposes. First, they have sought to understand and explain political phenomena in a way that is both theoretically and empirically grounded. Second, they have analyzed matters of enduring public interest, whether in terms of public policy and political action, fidelity between principle and practice in the organization and conduct of government, or the conditions of freedom, whether of citizens or of states. Many of the central advances made in the field have been prompted by a desire to improve both the quality and our understanding of political life. Nowhere is this tendency more apparent than in research on American politics, a field in which concerns for the public interest have stimulated various important insights. This volume systematically analyzes the major developments within the broad field of American politics over the past three decades. Each chapter is composed of a core paper that addresses the major puzzles, conversations, and debates that have attended major areas of concern and inquiry within the discipline. These papers examine and evaluate the intellectual evolution and "natural history" of major areas of political inquiry and chart particularly promising trajectories, puzzles, and concerns for future work Each core paper is accompanied by a set of shorter commentaries that engage the issues it takes up, thus contributing to an ongoing and lively dialogue among key figures in the field
