Making democracy work : civic traditions in modern Italy by Robert D Putnam( Book )

37 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do some democratic governments succeed and others fail? In a world full of hope for democratization but wary of government failure, this book offers empirical evidence for the importance of civic community in developing successful institutions. As part of a unique experiment begun in 1970 when Italy created new governments for each of its regions - regions that vary greatly from the standpoint of wealth, social structure, and political leanings - Robert Putnam and his collaborators spent two decades evaluating the performance of these governments in such fields as agriculture, housing, and health services. Their findings were surprising: regions that enjoy effective government in the 1990s have inherited a legacy of civic engagement that can be traced back to the early Middle Ages. Just as Tocqueville traveled to America to try to understand democracy, Putnam and his colleagues draw broad lessons for democratic theory from their twenty-year journey through Italy. Their conclusions challenge the simple-minded thesis of the primacy of economics and the easy optimism of social engineers. Based on dozens of case studies and thousands of interviews with politicians, community leaders, and ordinary citizens, this book illuminates patterns of associationism, trust, and cooperation that facilitate good governance and economic prosperity. It also contributes to the discussion of democracy in the newly freed lands of Eurasia and the developing world and to the gathering debate about how to revitalize democracy in America
Convergence, cohesion and integration in the European union by Robert Leonardi( Book )

26 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Convergence, Cohesion and Integration in the European Union tackles the fundamental theoretical and empirical issues underlying the process of European integration. Two basic arguments underlie the book. The first is that economic convergence in postwar Europe has reduced the disparities between regions and that this has been an important accelerator of the drive for integration. The second is that, in contrast to the situation before 1985 when nation states dominated the move to integration, grass roots pressure has been the dominant force since the Single European Act and the preparation for the single market
Cohesion policy in the European Union : the building of Europe by Robert Leonardi( Book )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume assesses the implementation of the EU's cohesion policy and the role that the policy has played in stimulating ten new member states from eastern and southern European countries to join the EU in 2004 and another three to four countries that will join in the near future."--Jacket
The challenge of the digital economy : markets, taxation and appropriate economic models( )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and German and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents contributions that analyse the extraordinary impact of digital technology on business, services, and the production of value in many sectors of the economy. At the heart of this book is the fact that the entire digital economy is now worth almost 6% of global GDP, and it continues to grow at an unprecedented rate. The volume covers the general debate on taxation and the digital economy with the chapters by Russo, Makiyama and Boccia, before completing the analysis with discussion of three national case studies covering the U.S. (Pagano) and the U.K. (Leonardi). Contributors ... contextualise the key issues surrounding the digitalisation of the economy from an international perspective."--

Regional development in a modern European economy : the case of Tuscany( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since Tuscany was targeted as an Objective Two area to reverse industrial decline, its development has made it a European Union success story. This volume brings together, for the first time in English, a team of experts to examine the 'Tuscan Model' of development and its link with European integration. All aspects of the economy are examined from the textile industry to tourism. It is shown that Tuscany has benefited from European integration and regional decentralisation, with an expanding export market to other EU countries." "Crucially, the 'principles and practice' approach demonstrates how the model can be applied to other such regions, and the book has applicability beyond the immediate scope of study. Given the absolute necessity of a coherent industrial policy at European level this volume is an invaluable reference for students, scholars and practitioners alike."--Jacket
