New institutionalism : theory and analysis by André Lecours( )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 1,599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New institutionalism is one of the most influential approaches in contemporary political science. In this collection of essays, top scholars in the field offer important contributions to new institutionalist theory, engaging in debates about structure and agency, state-society relations, institutional creation and change, preference formation, and the complicated web of relationships between institutions, culture, ideas, identity, rationality, and interests. From an analytical point of view, the essays examine how the state and political institutions shape a variety of political phenomena and outcomes, namely, nationalism, democratic transition, party aggregation, policy networks, war and peace, international recognition, sovereignty, and specific public policies. One of the unique features of the book is that it offers institutionalist analysis in the sub-fields of political science: comparative politics, public policy, and international relations."--Jacket
Basque nationalism and the Spanish state by André Lecours( )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and held by 1,488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Basque Nationalism and the Spanish State is an original and provocative discussion of a phenomenon that has provided the Basques with an unusually strong ethnic identity but has also generated important internal conflict among them, while vexing Spain's central government for many generations. It is essential reading for anyone interested in the Basques or in the development of modern nationalist movements."--Book jacket
Nationalism and democracy : dichotomies, complementarities, oppositions by André Lecours( )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book sheds light on the complicated, multi-faceted relationship between nationalism and democracy by examining how nationalism in various periods and contexts shapes, or is shaped by, democratic practices or the lack thereof
The parliaments of autonomous nations( )

11 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At a time when nationalist movements are forcefully looking for new forms of political, institutional, and constitutional accommodation - if not seeking independence altogether - insight into their dynamics is more useful than ever. In The Parliaments of Autonomous Nations, Guy Laforest and André Lecours assemble an original perspective on minority nations in Belgium, Canada, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Analyzing how parliaments in Flanders, Quebec, Catalonia, Galicia, the Basque Country, Scotland, and Northern Ireland have worked to build, consolidate, and express their identities, manage and protect the cultural distinctiveness of their communities, as well as articulate self-determination claims, contributors provide insights into these nations' democracies and traditions. Essays also focus on the central parliaments of multinational states, and on the methods used by these parliaments to promote their own national identities and respond to minority nations' claims for recognition, autonomy, or even independence. An illuminating look at the internal forces of Western governments, The Parliaments of Autonomous Nations also offers a broad view of vital concerns such as nationalist struggles, federalism, and parliamentarism."
Contemporary majority nationalism by André Lecours( )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For many years nationalism has been associated with political demands by minority nations that challenge the rights of the central state. However, over the last two decades many works have challenged this perspective, arguing that nationalism - as a political phenomenon - is likely to emerge among both majority and minority nations. In light of a renewed interest in the study of nationalism, Contemporary Majority Nationalism brings together a group of major scholars committed to making sense of this widespread phenomenon. To better illustrate the reality of majority nationalism and the way it has been expressed, authors combine analytical and comparative perspectives. In the first section, contributors highlight the paradox of majority nationalism and the ways in which collective identities become national identities. The second section offers in-depth case study analyses of France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Canada, and the United States. This book is an international project led by three members of the Research Group on Plurinational Societies based at Université du Québec à Montréal."--Publisher's website

Fiscal federalism and equalization policy in Canada : political and economic dimensions by André Lecours( )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fiscal Federalism and Equalization Policy in Canada is a concise book that aims to increase public understanding of equalization and fiscal federalism by providing a comparative and multidisciplinary perspective on the history, politics, and economics of equalization policy in Canada. The authors provide a brief history of the equalization program, a discussion of key economic debates concerning the role of that program and its effects, an analysis of the politics of equalization as witnessed over the last decade, and an exploration of the relationship between equalization and other components of fiscal federalism, particularly the Canada Health Transfer and the Canada Social Transfer. The result is an analysis of equalization that draws from the best scholarship available in the fields of economics, economic history, political science, public policy, and political sociology."--
Nationalism and social policy : the politics of territorial solidarity by Daniel Béland( Book )

24 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite the recent proliferation of literature on nationalism and on social policy, relatively little has been written to analyse the possible interaction between the two. Scholars interested in social citizenship have indirectly dealt with the interaction between national identity and social programs, but they have seldom examined this connection in reference to nationalism. Specialists of nationalism rarely mention social policy, focusing instead on language, culture, ethnicity, and religion. The main objective of this book is to explore the nature of the connection between nationalism and social policy from a comparative and historical perspective. At the theoretical level, this analysis will shed new light on a more general issue: the relationships between identity formation, territorial politics, and social policy. The cases at the centre of this study are three multinational states, that is, states featuring strong nationalist movements: Canada (Québec), the United Kingdom (Scotland), and Belgium (Flanders). The book looks at the interplay between nationalism and social policy at both the state and sub-state levels through a detailed comparison between these three cases. In its concluding chapter, the book brings in cases of mono-national states, like Germany and the United States to provide broader comparative insight on the meshing of nationalism and social policy. The original theoretical framework for this research is built using insight from selected scholarship on nationalism and on the welfare state."--Jacket
