Anyone can be a politician but it takes a murderous SOB to stand as a political king Marcus Scotts is everything our country needs until he steps into the Oval Office and refuses to bend for anyone.

And about that ? President Scotts will insure future elections never happen unless they´re fair and just. With forty-eight months to incorporate one-world practices, the President assumes the role of manipulated puppet and plays his part well until he turns the tables on those who pull the strings. Using everything at his disposal, he hunts down the elite´s killing squad but soon discovers those closest to him cannot be trusted so he does the unexpected. He learns to shoot and he doesn´t miss. He acquires skills that a killer needs and becomes that very killer, searching for those who are determined to bring down a country while destroying an entire world.

Lobbying and Society: A Political Sociology of ...
€ 62.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Lobbying and political interest groups occupy an ambivalent place in advanced democracies. Lobbying is viewed with suspicion, but is also a critical avenue for voices in policy debates. This insightful book injects a new sociological understanding of politics and policy. Interest groups help set political agendas, provide support to policymakers, and mobilize resources around issues. Interest groups are also the means by which individuals and organizations achieve advantage over others in social and economic life. The book incorporates theory and research about interest groups into political sociology´s approach to issues of power, inequality, and public policy. As the book convincingly reveals, a sociological understanding of lobbying and interest groups illustrates the edges and boundaries of representative democracy itself. Using case studies and data, and organized by topics such as influence, collective action, representation, and inequality, the book is a critical resource for students of policymaking and political sociology.

The Three Languages of Politics: Talking Across...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When it was first released in 2013, Arnold Kling´s The Three Languages of Politics was a prescient exploration of political communication, detailing the ´´three tribal coalitions´´ that make up America´s political landscape. Progressives, conservatives, and libertarians, he argued, are ´´like tribes speaking different languages. As a result, political discussions do not lead to agreement. Instead, most political commentary serves to increase polarization.´´ Now available as a newly revised and expanded edition, Kling´s book could not be any more timely, as Americans - whether as media pundits or conversing at a party - talk past one another with even greater volume, heat, and disinterest in contrary opinions. The Three Languages of Politics is an accessible, precise, and insightful guide to how to lower the barriers coarsening our politics. This is not a book about one ideology over another. Instead, it is a book about how we communicate issues and our ideologies, and how language intended to persuade instead divides. Kling offers a way to see through our rhetorical blinders so that we can incorporate new perspectives, nuances, and thinking into the important issues we must together share and resolve. 1.

Barricades and Borders/Europe 1800-1914
€ 28.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This is a comprehensive survey of European history from the coup d´etat of Napoleon Bonaparte in France to the assassination of the Archduke Ferdinand at Sarajevo, which led to the First World War. It concentrates on the twin themes of revolution and nationalism, which often combined in the early part of the century but which increasingly became rival creeds. Going beyond traditional political and diplomatic history, the book incorporates the results of recent research on population movements, the expansion of markets, the accumulation of capital, social mobility, education, changing patterns of leisure, religious practices, and intellectual and artistic developments. The work falls into three chronological sections. The first, starting in 1800 (rather than the more usual 1815) follows the build-up of the revolutionary currents which were eventually going to erupt in the Year of Revolutions´ 1848. The second, from 1850 to 1880, deals with the golden age of capitalism, the successful culmination of struggles for national unification, and the threat of anarchism. The concluding chapters look at the social and political stresses caused by socialism and national minorities, at new attempts by government to order society, imperial rivalry, and the descent into a war which was to mark the end of nineteenth-century Europe. For this third edition, Dr Gildea has substantially revised the text and maps, and completely updated the bibliography. New introductory sections guide the reader through the wealth of material in each chapter. The new edition also includes a full chronology of the period, a list of leading state ministers, and family trees for all the major dynasties.

Women and Family Law Reform in India (eBook, ePUB)
€ 19.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Constitution of India guarantees equality as a fundamental right. This, however, remains only at the level of theory as the various religious personal laws in force in the country and followed by different communities deny equality to women in personal matters. This inequitous contradiction is the subject of this pioneering study. Dr. Parashar argues that the concept of religious personal law was created by colonial administrators and has been maintained by independent India since, in a religiously plural society, it helps the State?s end of governance. The author traces the legislative conduct of the State and demonstrates that it has adopted discrepant policies with respect to the different religious personal laws. While Hindu personal law has been extensively reformed, the other personal laws have been left largely untouched. As a result, Hindu women have gained new rights, though not complete equality, while women of the minority communities continue to suffer inequalities. The author critically examines the arguments used by the State to reform, or refrain from reforming, religious personal laws. This analysis establishes conclusively that the State has acted in an inconsistent manner, and that its decisions are not governed by considerations of equality and gender justice but primarily by political factors. The author concludes that the only way to sever the connection between religious and civil rights is to adopt a secular and uniform civil code which should be non-optional. Dr. Parashar also highlights the inadequacies of the various feminist analyses of the nature of law and suggests that any discussion of the nature of the State must incorporate the significance of religion as a political factor. This major study will interest lawyers, legal activists, feminists and all those fighting to end gender discrimination.

Three Frames of Modern Politics
€ 66.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book examines the centrality of personality in political discourse since the Enlightenment. It considers the theory known as the ´´politics of authenticity,´´ its counter-discourses, and the ways in which it has degraded or enriched our collective political life. Using three models of politics to understand our current political predicaments-the politics of authenticity, politics of theatricality, and institutional politics-this volume argues that we need to envision a politics based on the best parts of each model: one that incorporates the ability for the oppressed to speak outside the institutional mechanisms of government. With the continuing erosion of public faith in political institutions, we have instead been left with the most troubling aspects of both authentic and theatrical politics. By exploring recent events and trends in American politics, this book ultimately makes a normative case that we need to balance demands for authenticity in our political actors with the equally necessary political values of deliberative institutions, processes, and decorum.
