2 Archer, Clive The European Community: Structure and Process
Palgrave Macmillan 1992 031208692X / 9780312086923 Paperback Fine 
Moves towards democracy in Eastern Europe and the collapse of the former So viet Union have launched the EC into a new stage in its evolution, and are testing the strength of the Community on the eve of the Single European Mar ket. Arguments within the EC, on issues of national sovereignty, monetary u nion, and Germany's role are likely to continue, but contradict the EC's de sire to show itself as an effective force in world politics. In the midst o f the polemic and rhetoric, it is easy to lose sight of the EC's original a ims and the extent to which they may be seen to have succeeded or failed. T his authoritative new text provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects o f the EC, including its historical development since the Second World War, its institutional framework, its main policy initiatives (agricultural, eco nomic, regional, social, environmental and foreign), and its relations with the rest of the world. A concluding chapter assesses the prospects for its development during the 1990s.

Crashing the Gate: Netroots, Grassroots, and the Rise of People-Powered Pol itics, Armstrong, Jerome
3 Armstrong, Jerome Crashing the Gate: Netroots, Grassroots, and the Rise of People-Powered Pol itics
Chelsea Green 2006 1931498997 / 9781931498999 1st Edition Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
A clean hardcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-library book: Crashing the Gate is a shot across the bow at the political establishment i n Washington, DC and a call to re-democratize politics in America. This book lays bare, with passion and precision, how ineffective, incompete nt, and antiquated the Democratic Party establishment has become, and how i t has failed to adapt and respond to new realities and challenges. The auth ors save their sharpest knives to go for the jugular in their critique of R epublican ideologues who are now running--and ruining--our country. Written by two of the most popular political bloggers in America, the book hails the new movement--of the netroots, the grassroots, the unorthodox lab or unions, the maverick big donors--that is the antidote to old-school poli tics as usual. Fueled by advances in technology and a hunger for a more aut hentic and populist democracy, this broad-based movement is changing the wa y political campaigns are waged and managed. A must-read book for anyone with an interest in the future of American democracy.

6 Berger, Thomas U. War, Guilt, and World Politics after World War II
Cambridge University Press 2012 1107674956 / 9781107674950 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. When do states choose to adopt a penitent stance towards the past? When do they choose to offer apologies for historical misdeeds, offer compensation for their victims, and incorporate the darker sides of history into their textbooks, public monuments, and museums? When do they choose not to do so? And what are the political consequences of how states portray the past? This book pursues these questions by examining how governments in post-1945 Austria, Germany, and Japan have wrestled with the difficult legacy of the Second World War and the impact of their policies on regional politics in Europe and Asia. The book argues that states can reconcile over historical issues, but to do so requires greater political will and imposes greater costs than is commonly realized. At the same time, in an increasingly interdependent world, failure to do so can have a profoundly disruptive effect on regional relations and feed dangerous geopolitical tensions.

Making Patriots, Berns, Walter
7 Berns, Walter Making Patriots
University Of Chicago Press 2001 0226044378 / 9780226044378 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Although Samuel Johnson once remarked that "patriotism is the last refuge o f scoundrels," over the course of the history of the United States we have seen our share of heroes: patriots who have willingly put their lives at ri sk for this country and, especially, its principles. And this is even more remarkable given that the United States is a country founded on the princip les of equality and democracy that encourage individuality and autonomy far more readily than public spiritedness and self-sacrifice. Walter Berns's Making Patriots is a pithy and provocative essay on precisel y this paradox. How is patriotism inculcated in a system that, some argue, is founded on self-interest? Expertly and intelligibly guiding the reader t hrough the history and philosophy of patriotism in a republic, from the anc ient Greeks through contemporary life, Berns considers the unique nature of patriotism in the United States and its precarious state. And he argues th at while both public education and the influence of religion once helped to foster a public-minded citizenry, the very idea of patriotism is currently under attack. Berns finds the best answers to his questions in the thought and words of Abraham Lincoln, who understood perhaps better than anyone what the principles of democracy meant and what price adhering to them may exact. The graves at Arlington and Gettysburg and Omaha Beach in Normandy bear witness to the fact that self-interested individuals can become patriots, and Making Patriot

9 Bougarel, Xavier (Editor) Investigating Srebrenica: Institutions, Facts, Responsibilities (Contempora ry European History)
Berghahn Books 2012 0857454722 / 9780857454720 Hardcover Very Good 
In July 1995, the Bosnian Serb Army commanded by General Ratko Mladic attac ked the enclave of Srebrenica, a UN "safe area" since 1993, and massacred a bout 8,000 Bosniac men. While the responsibility for the massacre itself la ys clearly with the Serb political and military leadership, the question of the responsibility of various international organizations and national aut horities for the fall of the enclave is still passionately discussed, and h as given rise to various rumors and conspiracy theories. Follow-up investig ations by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and by several commissions have dissipated most of these rumors and contribute d to a better knowledge of the Srebrenica events and the part played by the main local and international actors. This volume represents the first syst ematic, comparative analysis of those investigations. It brings together an alyses from both the external standpoint of academics and the inside perspe ctive of various professionals who participated directly in the inquiries, including police officers, members of parliament, high-ranking civil servan ts, and other experts. Evaluating how institutions establish facts and ascr ibe responsibilities, this volume presents a historiographical and epistemo logical reflection on the very possibility of writing a history of the pres ent time.

The Clinton Presidency: First Appraisals, Campbell, Colin
14 Campbell, Colin The Clinton Presidency: First Appraisals
Chatham House Pub 1995 1566430143 / 9781566430142 Paperback Good 
Four years ago, the editors offered a midterm evaluation of the Bush presid ency. Now, in this anthology, a dozen political scientists assess the succe sses and failures of the Clinton presidency and the structural obstacles Cl inton faced upon entering office. The contributors look critically at Clint on's reliance on public opinion polls, his management of the White House, h is inclination to try to please too many conflicting interest groups and hi s foreign policy, but they are more forgiving of his inability to loosen Co ngressional gridlock and even praise his handling of the economy. The essay s are somewhat repetitive, as several contributors rehearse the same events of Clinton's first two years in office to illustrate their points about hi s governing style. This brand of political science is only two steps remove d from journalism. Unfortunately, those steps appear to be accessibility an d lively writing, while the play-by-play approach of some of the contributo rs sometimes obscures the big picture. Still, the anthology's exhaustivenes s makes it useful for anyone trying to make sense of Clinton's struggles in office.
