  2. Interculturalism in Cities

    Interculturalism in Cities

    Edited by Ricard Zapata-Barrero
    Cities are increasingly recognized as new players in diversity studies, and many of them are showing evidence of an intercultural shift. As an emerging concept and policy, interculturalism is becoming the most pragmatic answer to concrete concerns in cities. Within this framework, this book covers two major concerns: how to conceptualize and how to implement intercultural policies. Through the use of theoretical and comparative case studies, the current most prominent contributors in the field examine an area that multicultural policies have missed in the past: interaction between people from different cultures and national backgrounds. By compiling the recent research in Europe and elsewhere this book concludes that interculturalism is becoming both an attractive and efficient new paradigm for diversity management. Learn More

  3. Environmental Constitutionalism

    Environmental Constitutionalism

    Edited by James R. May, Erin Daly
    Environmental constitutionalism is a new concept that protects local and global environmental conditions by invoking national and subnational constitutional law. As constitution-drafters in all legal traditions commit to environmental stewardship, protection and sustainability, courts are increasingly called upon to vindicate protected environmental rights in both their substantive and procedural aspects. Designed for judges, advocates and policy-makers, as well as scholars in the field, this book assembles key writings on environmental constitutionalism from around the world, drawing attention to its contours, challenges and potential for enhancing both environmental protection and constitutional governance in theory and context.

    Challenging Neoliberalism

    Cal Clark, Evelyn A. Clark
    Neoliberalism, which advocates free markets without government interference, has become increasingly utilized and controversial over the last three and a half decades. This book presents case studies of Chile and Taiwan, two countries that seemingly prospered from adopting neoliberal strategies, and finds that their developmental histories challenge neoliberalism in fundamental ways.

  5. Liberalism Defended

    Liberalism Defended

    Douglas B. Rasmussen, Douglas J. Den Uyl
    Liberalism is today under serious intellectual attack. It is said to undermine its own principles, to have lost any strong claims to universal validity, and to foster injustice and inhumanity. Liberalism is associated with Enlightenment thought and is considered by some as an outmoded political philosophy. Professors Rasmussen and Den Uyl take up this challenge to liberalism. They show that liberalism is not locked into traditional ways of understanding itself and has the capacity to enrich itself by intellectual traditions not usually associated with liberalism.

  6. Creating Capitalism

    Creating Capitalism

    Patricia Dillon, Frank C. Wykoff
    Employing historical analysis and building on growth theory and modern political economy, Dillon and Wykoff explain Soviet disintegration and analyze efforts to create capitalism in newly independent states. They show how five fundamental economic reforms generate growth, and use an original model to test the connections between reforms, elections and economic performance. The authors examine the progress of six countries (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Russia and Slovakia) in terms of each country’s history and its successful application of the five reforms. Anyone interested in how capitalism works and why pro-market reforms encounter resistance in spite of their potential for generating higher living standards will find this book essential reading.

  8. Federalism in Asia

    Federalism in Asia

    Edited by Baogang He, Brian Galligan, Takashi Inoguchi
    Until now there have been few attempts to examine the different models of federalism appropriate in Asia, let alone to trace the extent to which these different perspectives are compatible, converging, or mutually influencing each other. This book redresses the balance by demonstrating the varieties of Asian federalism. Learn More

  9. Euroscepticism in the EU

    Euroscepticism in the EU

    Edited by Simon Usherwood, Nicholas Startin, Simon Guerra
    Although euroscepticism appears to be on the rise across the EU, it remains a poorly understood phenomenon, reflecting political marginalisation and indifference.

Expert contributors offer a range of disciplinary approaches to euroscepticism and illustrate the breadth and scope of the topic with a selection of innovative case studies. The book provides a thought-provoking contribution to the academic literature at a time when the future of the European integration project is increasingly being challenged. The volume is highly innovative, reconceptualising the important phenomenon of euroscepticism in a new and interdisciplinary light. Learn More

  11. Regulatory Capitalism

    Regulatory Capitalism

    John Braithwaite
    Contemporary societies have more vibrant markets than past ones. Yet they are more heavily populated by private and public regulators. This book explores the features of such a regulatory capitalism, its tendencies to be cyclically crisis-ridden, ritualistic and governed through networks. New ways of thinking about resultant policy challenges are developed. Learn More

  12. Information Environmentalism

    Information Environmentalism

    Robert Cunningham
    Information Environmentalism applies four environmental analytical frameworks – ecology, ‘the commons’, public choice theory, and welfare economics – to the information environment. The book neatly captures the metaphorical relationship between the physical environment and the information environment by alluding to the environmental philosophy of ‘social ecology’ and the emergent informational discourse of ‘cultural environmentalism’.

  13. State Capitalism

    State Capitalism

    Edited by Barbara Krug
    This book takes as its starting point the question of whether contemporary state capitalism simply uses different tools than earlier or other variants of capitalism, or whether it is an altogether new kind of economic regime. It brings together key research and commentary which will help to define the concept of contemporary state capitalism as an economic model and present a nuanced view of state capitalism in action. The editor has selected the articles on the basis of their academic merit, but has also included articles representative of the specific academic climate of a certain time such as Marxist-based concepts. Although these may look ‘out-of date’ or have been dismissed as unsatisfactory, they are nevertheless important for an understanding of the development of the debate. A clear original introduction by the editor provides an illuminating guide to this topic and indicates new areas for further study and analysis. Learn More

  14. BEYOND KEYNESIANISM

    BEYOND KEYNESIANISM

    Edited by Egon Matzner, Wolfgang Streeck
    This important book goes beyond generalizations and takes a hard-headed look at the real strengths and weaknesses of Keynesian demand management and supply side economics. Keynesianism has failed to reconcile high levels of competitiveness with full employment. This was confirmed in the 1980s by the performance of the UK, the US and West Germany. Sweeping de-regulation has not proved to be an adequate solution. Learn More

  16. Liberalism in Crisis?

    Liberalism in Crisis?

    Edited by Carlo Secchi, Antonio Villafranca
    During the current economic crisis recurring questions on the validity of the liberal economic system have resurfaced concerning the role of the state and the free market, the proactive use of fiscal policies, economic nationalism, and environmental sustainability. However, due to the depth and scope of the crisis new emphasis is being placed on these issues. This book attaches great importance to the specific consequences for the European Union by addressing critical themes surrounding its role in the new era of global economic governance. These include the coherence of common monetary policy with national fiscal policies, new financial regulation and supervision, and the future sustainability of national rescue plans and their compatibility with ambitious targets, such as those addressing climate change.

    Rationalism and Anti-Rationalism in the Origins of Economics

    William O. Coleman
    This major new study of the philosophical roots of economics examines the impact on eighteenth century economic thought of the rivalry between two opposing philosophical outlooks: rationalism and anti-rationalism. The economic thought of this period, William Coleman argues, was a synthesis of these two outlooks. Learn More

  19. Classical Liberalism in the Age of Post Communism

    Classical Liberalism in the Age of Post Communism

    Norman Barry
    Classical Liberalism in the Age of Post–Communism reconstructs the theory of classical liberalism as a unified doctrine that encompasses political economy, jurisprudence and social philosophy. Norman Barry’s essay provides explanations of the market economy, entrepreneurship, property rights theory and constitutionalism from a classical liberal perspective. The main elements of this doctrine are defended by Professor Barry against the criticisms of egalitarians, communitarians and the new reconstructed socialists. Despite some intellectual and practical successes the classical liberal doctrine has failed to capture the imagination of the establishment in the social sciences or the support of the electorate at large. Professor Barry shows how classical liberal public choice theory can counteract the apparent decline of the doctrine and enable us to explore the meanings of liberty, social justice and law in the context of contemporary social theory.
