            The representative assembly, or parliament, as it is most widely called, is at once an old, a ubiquitous, and a controversial political institution. This book deals with parliament (the generic term for what also may be known as legislature, diet, or knesset), what it has been an...d is, what it does and should do, and what may become of it.

            Which kind of decisions are passed by Cabinet in coalition governments? What motivates ministerial action? How much leeway do coalition parties give their governmental representatives? Coalition Government and Party Mandate focuses on a comparative study of ministerial behavior i...n Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands. It discredits the well-known assumption that ministers are a ~policy dictatorsa (TM) in their spheres of competence, and demonstrates that ministers are consistently and extensively constrained when deciding on policies. Looking at policy formation through coalition agreeements and the effectiveness of such agreements, the book will be of interest to scholars of governance and European politics.

            Bringing together experts on regionalism and federalism this collection explores the impact of legislative regions on parties and voters. It reflects on the 1980 publication of Small Worlds by David Elkins and Richard Simeon, which outlined how and why voters and policies differ ...across Canadian provinces. Using recent data, the essays in this collection provide a comparative re-examination of the impact of regions. The book explores attitude divergence in Canada and in the US, the role and impact of regional parties in Quebec, Scotland and Bavaria, the impact of multi-level governance on how citizens understand and discharge their duties and the capacity of sub-state political systems to influence general political attitudes. The result is an empirical and analytical contribution to regionalism and federalism studies that demonstrates how and why regions matter. This book was published as a special issue of Regional and Federal Studies.

This book furnishes new insights about the current meaning and function of the concept of sovereignty within international relations and political theory.

            Political Parties and the State in Post-Communist Europe
             

            Political Parties and the State in Post-Communist Europe (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            It is not possible to understand the nature and functioning of post-communist political parties without understanding their relationship with the state. On the one hand, few parties in the region would be able to survive and perform without state resources as they lack strong roo...ts within the wider society. On the other hand, the relatively weak states inherited from the communist period offer parties and elites opportunities for various forms of rent-seeking within state institutions. But how can we understand the relationship between parties and the state? How do the party-state links work in practice and do they exhibit any cross-national or cross-party variation? Are there any discernible patterns of party-state linkages among the post-communist democracies? Previously published as a special issue of The Journal of Communist Studies and Transition Politics, this volume addresses these questions. The party-state linkages are analyzed alongside three analytical dimensions: state financing of parties, their legal regulation, and party patronage within the state institutions. The contributors bring together case studies of post-communist countries, as well as cross-country comparative analysis, each addressing at least one of these analytical dimensions. Besides providing a framework within which studies of party-state relationship can be undertaken, the book brings comparative evidence on the extent and the manner in which parties in the region use the state for their own purposes.
