The crisis of social democracy in Europe( )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social democracy is in office almost nowhere in Europe and appears bereft of ideas in the face of the economic crisis that might have given it a historic opportunity. So is social democracy dead? The contributors to this book take a stand against those who claim that social democracy has reached its end. By arguing that social democracy is not a single set of ideas or practices but a way of reconciling market capitalism with social inclusion and equality, they show that it has actually been remarkably successful during the 20th century. Its key principles are still relevant but must be adapted to new conditions. This book examines the fortunes of social democracy in western and east-central Europe and the policy challenges in economic policy, labour markets, social welfare, public services, European integration and decentralisation.--

European integration and the nationalities question( )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This topical book examines the effect of European integration on relations between states and minority nations. The editors, picking up an older vocabulary, call this the "nationalities question." This new collection brings together the leading specialists in the field, and covers a wide range of cases, from Northern Ireland in the West, to Estonia and Latvia in the East, and Cyprus in the South-East. The contributors assess how European integration has affected the preparedness of states to accommodate minorities across a range of fundamental criteria, including: enhanced rights protection; autonomy; the provision of a voice for minorities in the European and international arena; and the promotion of cross-border cooperation among communities dissected by state frontiers. The comprehensive chapters stress the importance of the nationality question, and the fact that, contrary to the hopes and beliefs of many on the left and right, it is not going to go away. Beginning with an introductory essay that summarizes the impact of European Integration on the Nationalities Question, this accessible book will be of strong interest to scholars and researchers of Politics, Nationalism, Ethnic Conflict and European Studies

These three nations are harbingers of a new post-sovereigntist nationhood."--Jacket

"This important new textbook centres on the theme of the state in Europe, its structures and policy capacity, and its relation to civil society."

This is followed by a chapter on Spain, an historic state that has chosen Europe as its theme and guide for its efforts at political, economic and social modernization. Each of these chapters includes discussions of state and government in the country concerned, parties and elections, policy making and territorial policies. The volume concludes with an assessment of European integration, the structure of the Community, and its aims and policies." "The text incorporates extensive data on policy and politics, in the form of tables and charts, as well as additional information in the statistical index, so as to encourage students to make their own judgements and to learn to assess and interpret quantitative material."--Jacket

The independence of Scotland : self-government and the shifting politics of union by Michael Keating( Book )

21 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three hundred years after its conception) the Anglo-Scottish Union is in serious difficulty. This is not because of a profound cultural divide between England and Scotland but because recent decades have seen the rebuilding of Scotland as a political community, while the ideology and practices of the old unionism have atrophied. Yet while Britishness is in decline, it has not been replaced by a dominant ideology of Scottish independence. Rather Scots are looking to renegotiate the Union to find a new place in the British Isles, in Europe, and in the world. There are few legal, constitutional, or political obstacles to Scottish independence, but an independent Scotland would need to forge a new social and economic project as a small nation in the global market-place, and there has been little serious thinking about the implications of this. Short of independence, there is a range of constitutional options for renegotiating the Union to allow more Scottish self-government along the lines that public opinion seems to favour. The limits are posed not by constitutional principles but by the unwillingness of the English to abandon their unitary conception of the state. The end of the United Kingdom may be provoked not by Scottish nationalism, but by English unionism."--Jacket
Culture, institutions, and economic development : a study of eight European regions by Michael Keating( Book )

14 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book reviews the debate surrounding the construction of regions and presents eight case studies to illustrate how they are shaped and reshaped in a variety of different ways. The authors find that while the regions exhibit some common patterns, there are significant variations, indicating that there is no definitive model of regional development." "This book offers a systematic comparison of eight distinct regions and stateless nations, each with its own historical identity, but which is constantly being rebuilt in changing economic and political conditions. Avoiding economic or cultural determinism, the authors show how region-builders can shape their own responses to global challenges to produce models of development reflecting differing understandings and social compromises." "Culture, Institutions and Economic Development will be welcomed by academics within the fields of regional studies, European studies and political science."--BOOK JACKET
