November 1991 | ISBN: 0582491746 | Pages: 304 | PDF | 18 MB

"The Post War World" is a series aiming to provide a scholarly but readable account of the way our world has been shaped in the crowded years since World War II. Some volumes deal with regions, or even single nations, others with important themes: all are written by expert historians drawing on the latest scholarship as well as their own research and judgements.

Social Democracy in the Global Periphery: Origins, Challenges, Prospects
Publisher: Cambridge University Press | ISBN: 0521686873 | edition 2007 | PDF | 300 pages | 1,57 mb

Social Democracy in the Global Periphery focuses on social-democratic regimes in the developing world that have, to varying degrees, reconciled the needs of achieving growth through globalized markets with extensions of political, social and economic rights. The authors show that opportunities exist to achieve significant social progress, despite a global economic order that favours core industrial countries. Their findings derive from a comparative analysis of four exemplary cases: Kerala (India), Costa Rica, Mauritius and Chile (since 1990)…
Marketing Democracy: Power and Social Movements in Post-Dictatorship Chile

Marketing Democracy: Power and Social Movements in Post-Dictatorship Chile By Julia Paley
English | 2001 | ISBN: 0520227689 | 315 pages | PDF | 43,3 MB

Amid protests against the Pinochet regime, a group of poblaciĆ³n(shantytown) residents came together in 1984 to challenge poor health care in their community and to denounce military rule. How did their organization respond seven years later when Chile's transition to democracy brought an end to dictatorship but no clear solution to ongoing health problems? Marketing Democracy shows how the exercise of power and the strategies of social movements transformed with the transition from a military to an elected-civilian regime in Chile. The term "marketing democracy" refers first to how contemporary democracies are shaped by transnational market forces, and second to how politicians have promoted democracy with the twin goals of attracting foreign capital and diminishing social movements.

Think-tanks, Social Democracy and Social Policy

Think-tanks, Social Democracy and Social Policy By Hartwig Pautz
English | April 10, 2012 | ISBN: 0230292941 | 248 pages | PDF | 1,5 MB

The question of how a policy is made or why things simply stay the same in politics has long occupied the minds of political observers. This book explores the way in which very particular political actors made a difference to policy and politics. The analytical focus is on think-tanks, hybrid creatures which exist somewhere in the spaces between government, business and academia. Think-tanks played a role in re-making the British Labour Party and German Social Democrats as 'Third Way' parties in the 1990s and 2000s. Think-tanks also helped to mould the 'workfare state' which is now characteristic of both countries.
A Decade of Democracy in Africa (International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology)

A Decade of Democracy in Africa (International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology)
Brill Academic Publishers | 2001-05 | ISBN: 9004122443 | 158 pages | PDF | 1 MB

The democratic experiment in Africa has had a chequered history over the 1990s. Authors in this volume argue that African civil society is less likely to support democracy, they measure African democracy by the women's rights movements, unravel the mythical hope of technology and point to ideological capitulation necessary for a limited transition. Past experience from Botswana, South-Africa, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda and Madagascar should give the readers an understanding of democracy in Africa.
