Rethinking Europe Social Theory and the Implications of Europeanization Gerard Delanty, University of Liverpool, UK and Chris Rumford, University of London, UK Rethinking Europe broadens the terms of the debate on Europeanization, conventionally limited to the supersession of the nation-state by a supranational authority and the changes within member states consequent upon EU membership. Dominant approaches to the transformation of Europe ignore contemporary social theory interpretations of the nature and dynamics of social change. Delanty and Rumford argue that we need a theory of society in order to understand Europeanization. In doing so the book advances the case that Europeanization should be theorized in terms of: ´ globalization ´ major social transformations that are not exclusively spear-headed by the EU ´ the wider context of the transformation of modernity.

Comparative Federalism

Irish Republicanism in the Twenty-First Century

Theory and Practice

As a consequence of Sinn Féin’s connection with the IRA, the military side of the republican movement has tended to overshadow the political, both in terms of its internal operation and strategic choices and in terms of the attention that it has attracted from scholars, writers and journalists. However, since the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, Sinn Féin has experienced substantial growth, in terms of electoral results and party support, both in Northern Ireland and in the Republic of Ireland. This book assesses the importance and relevance of Sinn Féin within the changing configurations of Irish politics, studying it as a political party on both sides of the Irish border. It investigates whether Sinn Féin can sustain the progress made over the last decade, retain its identity as the voice of radical republicanism, and ultimately, whether its vision of a united Ireland can prevail. Contents: 1. Introduction 2. Historical Overview, 1905 – 1981 3. The Story of the Hunger Strikes 4. New Image, New Language, New Style 5. Role of Sinn Féin in the Republic of Ireland 6.

Democracy and Federalism in the European Union and the United States

´ an exploration of the foundations of statehood, Irish society and political culture

page 6 – European Politics 2005-6

New Sinn Féin

The European Union – a supranational system with its own institutional characteristics and autonomy – has a structure and functional logic which are more similar to those of the US than those of European nation states. Yet, by and large, the EU and the US tend to be analyzed more as potential geopolitical and economic rivals or allies than compared as institutional peers.

A new examination of contemporary federalism and federation, which delivers a detailed theoretical study underpinned by fresh case studies. It is grounded in a clear distinction between ‘federations’, particular kinds of states, and ‘federalism’, the thinking that drives and promotes them. It also details the origins, formation, evolution and operations of federal political interests, through an authoritative series of chapters that: ´ analyze the conceptual bases of federalism and federation through the evolution of the intellectual debate on federalism; the American Federal experience; the origins of federal states; and the relationship between state-building and national integration ´ explore comparative federalism and federation by looking at five main pathways into comparative analysis with empirical studies on the US, Canada, Australia, India, Malaysia, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the EU ´ explore the pathology of federations, looking failures and successes, and the impact of globalization. The final chapter also presents a definitive assessment of federal theory. This book will be of great interest to students and researchers of federalism, devolution, comparative politics and government.

Outcast Europe: The Balkans, 1789-1989 From the Ottomans to Milosevic Tom Gallagher, University of Bradford, UK Examining two centuries of Balkan politics, from the emergence of nationalism to the retreat of Communist power in 1989, this is the first book to systematically argue that many of the region’s problems are external in origin.

Swiss Foreign Policy provides in-depth insights into the procedures and constraints of Swiss foreign policy, answering questions such as: ´ why is Switzerland not a member of the European Union? ´ what are the implications of staying apart and how important is neutrality in today’s Europe? ´ what are the implications of federalism and direct democracy on foreign policy? ´ how should conflicting interests in foreign policy decision-making be dealt with? The book is essential reading to all those interested in foreign policy analysis, the relationship between democracy and international relations, the significance of being a small state in contemporary Europe and the specificities of the Swiss political system.

A decade of instability in the Balkan states of southeast Europe has given the region one of the worst images in world politics. The Balkans has become synonymous with chaos and extremism. Balkanization, meaning conflict arising from the fragmentation of political power, is a condition feared across the globe. This new text assesses the key issues of Balkan politics, showing how the development of exclusive nationalism has prevented the region’s human and material resources from being harnessed in a constructive way. It argues that the proximity of the Balkans to the great powers is the main reason for instability and decline. Britain, Russia, Austria-Hungary, France and finally the USA had conflicting ambitions and interests in the region. Russia had imperial designs before and after the 1917 Revolution. The Western powers sometimes tolerated these or encouraged undemocratic local forces to exercise control in order to block further Soviet expansion. Leading authority Tom Gallagher examines the origins of these Western prejudices towards the Balkans, tracing the damaging effects of policies based on Western lethargy and cynicism, and reassesses the negative image of the region, its citizens, their leadership skills and their potential to overcome crucial problems.

The Fall A Comparative Study of the End of Communism in Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary and Poland Steven Saxonberg, Dalarna University, Sweden With a foreword by Seymour Lipset, Hoover Institution and George Mason University, USA The Fall examines one of the twentieth century’s great historical puzzles: why did the communist-led regimes in Eastern Europe collapse so quickly and why was the process of collapse so different from country to country? This major study explains why the impetus for change in Poland and Hungary came from the regimes themselves, while in Czechoslovakia and East Germany it was mass movements which led to the downfall of the regimes.

Developing a Constitution for Europe Edited by Erik O. Eriksen, John Erik Fossum and Agustín Menédez, all at the University of Oslo, Norway The European Union is presently at a crossroad. The prospect of enlargement has led to a project of comprehensive reform. Existing structures – originally designed for just six members – need to change. The Constitutional Convention has succeeded in forging a draft Treaty Establishing the Constitution for Europe but these developments raise fundamental issues of legitimacy and democratic accountability. This book aims to address the challenge of forging a legitimate Constitution for the EU and explores the questions: ´ does the EU need a constitution and, if so, what is to be constituted? ´ can such a constitution be made by a non-state entity? ´ how could the constitution be made and what is the role of the Convention on the Future of Europe? Developing a Constitution for Europe will interest students and researchers of European Politics. Routledge Studies on Democratising Europe

Enlargement and the Nature of the Euro-Polity

The European Union and the Public Sphere

Norway outside the European Union

Edited by Helene Sjursen, University of Oslo, Norway

A Delibrative Democratic Perspective

Norway and European Integration from 1994 to 2004

Can the enlargement process help us to achieve a better understanding of the nature of the EU? In this book we ask what kind of understanding of the EU the enlargement process speaks to. Does it mainly suggest that the EU is a free market, focusing on potential economic gains? Does it indicate that there is a sense of common European identity, which guides the selection of candidates? Or is the focus primarily on securing respect for democratic principles and human rights?

Making the European Polity Reflexive integration in the EU Edited by Erik O. Eriksen, University of Oslo, Norway Today’s Europe is marked by an amazing pace of integration and major changes have taken place within a short period of the time. The European Union now consists of 25 member states, however there is confusion and disagreement about its future design. This new text investigates how the European Union should develop and organize itself and offers a reflexive approach to integration based on the theory of communicative action. It conceives of the EU as a law based supranational polity lacking the identity of a people as well as the coercive means of a state and argues that it is a polity with an organized capacity to act, but no sole apex of authority. Making an important contribution to the theoretical discussions on the EU, these contributors explore a range of issues including legitimacy, post-national democracy and integration and provide in-depth analyses of social and tax policy, foreign policy, identity formation, the reform process and the constitutional effects of enlargement. This book will appeal to political scientists and particularly to students and researchers of European Politics.

Editied by Philip R. Schlesinger, University of Stirling, UK and John Erik Fossum, University of Oslo, Norway This is a new examination of the prospects for a ‘Citizens’ Europe’, with particular emphasis on the notion of a European public sphere. The European Union is often attacked with reference to its ‘democratic deficit’, namely its deficiencies in representation and representativeness, transparency, accountability, and support. This new book addresses these issues, showing how they reveal the absence of a viable European public sphere. It assesses the possible formation of a communicative space that could enable and engender the formation of a transnational or a supranational public. It also shows how a viable public sphere is a central precondition for democracy because it enables the elaboration of widespread public debate. This text lays emphasis on a ‘deliberative democratic’ perspective, a theoretical conception of democracy particularly well suited to discuss the question of the public sphere and how it relates to democracy. From this position the book addresses key questions: ´ what are the prospects for a European public sphere? ´ should we think in terms of a single public sphere, or are there good theoretical and empirical grounds to consider that overlapping public spheres are a more viable option? ´ what do our findings on the question of the public sphere tell us about the EU as a political entity? This book will be of great interest to all students and scholars of international politics, political discourse and of European democracy in particular.

Clive Archer, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK In November 1994 the Norwegian electorate rejected membership of the European Union. Archer examines the background to this decision both in terms of an expression of interests within Norway and in terms of national feeling. He then investigates the subsequent interaction between Norway and the EU through the European Economic Area (EEA) – which allowed Norway access to the EU’s markets; the Schengen agreement – dealing with justice and border matters and the Common Foreign and Security Policy. It includes discussion of policies that have had a particular effect on Norway, such as those of the gas directive, fisheries and the sale of alcohol and looks at how Norway has adapted itself to EU policy, noting the cases where the country has dug in its heels and when it has been acquiescent. This book will appeal to students and researchers with an interest in European integration and Nordic studies in general.

Democracy and the Role of Associations Political, Strutural and Social Contexts Edited by Sigrid Rossteutscher, University of Mannheim, Germany Voluntary associations have been presented as a solution to political apathy and cynicism towards representative democracy. The authors collected in this volume, however, argue that these claims require more robust substantiation and seek to critically examine the crucial link between the associative sector and the health of democracy. Focusing on the role of context and using diverse approaches and empirical material, they explore whether these associations in differing socio-political contexts actually undermine rather than reinvigorate democracy.

The Europeanization of National Environmental Policy Edited by Andrew J.

It also offers an original assessment of how far Europeanization has produced greater policy convergence in western Europe. Throughout, the approach taken is genuinely comparative, drawing on the insights provided by leading country specialists.

Popular Protest in East Germany

Gibraltar, Identity and Empire

Regulating the Utilities

Gareth Dale, University of Swansea, UK

Edited by Simon J Bulmer, University of Manchester, UK, David Dolowitz, University of Liverpool, UK, Peter Humphreys, University of Manchester, UK and Stephen Padgett, University of Strathclyde, UK

An incisive new study of dissent and protest in the German Democratic Republic, focusing on the upheaval of 1989–1990.

This volume explores the influences which have helped created a Gibraltarian sense of identity, focusing on geographical; environmental; political; economic; ethnic and religious factors; as well as Britain’s imperial presence.

This book focuses on case studies from five EU states; Germany, France, Sweden, Belgium and Spain. Countries are selected to exemplify contrasting policy norms and institutional settings, and to include a range of policy “leaders” and “laggards”.

Territory and Terror

Ostpolitik Revisited

Jan Mansvelt-Beck, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Karl Cordell, University of Plymouth, UK and Stefan Wolff, University of Bath, UK This is a new exploration of how the events of the twentieth century still cast a shadow over relations between Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.

This pioneering study will be of particular interest to students of European politics and international studies.

Conflicting Nationalisms in the Basque Country

The study provides a rich description of territoriality analysed from a comparative perspective and explores the relation between territoriality and regional differences in conflict intensity.

Multinational Federalism and Value Pluralism

The broad consensus is that mass support for integration is largely a function of utilitarian, or payoff, calculations. This study instead demonstrates empirically that explanations of mass support for integration are complemented by the inclusion of variables that account for so-called “affective” or more emotive attitudes.

Edited by Aleks Szecerbiak and Paul Taggart, both at the University of Sussex, UK A series of EU accession referendums were held in nine candidate countries, eight post-communist states and Malta, between March and September 2003. These referendums provide us with an excellent comparative opportunity to deepen our understanding of the European integration issue and how it interacts with domestic politics, and of the dynamics of referendums in general and referendums on the European issue in particular. This book therefore provides a set of focused comparisons between these different cases. Each of the individual chapters provides an authoritative analysis of the referendum campaign and outcome in each of the countries concerned by a leading specialist on the politics of that country. This book was previously published as a special issue of the journal West European Politics. January 2005: 234x156: 256pp Hb: 0-415-36007-2: £60.00

Britain’s Policy Toward European Community

Evolving Loyalties

Harold Wilson and Britain’s World Role, 1964-1967

John K. Cox, Wheeling Jesuit University, USA

Helen Parr, London School of Economics, UK

A clear and concise introduction to contemporary Slovenia. It examines the country’s rapid transition from a collection of provinces in the southern part of the Habsburg Empire, to a republic within Yugoslavia, to an independent state and analyzes the major political and economic developments since 1991. The perfect introduction to one of Europe’s most fascinating nations.

Harold Wilson’s apparent volte-face on European Community membership in the autumn of 1966 has long puzzled commentators and Wilson’s colleagues alike. Based on interviews, private papers and recently released evidence from the National Archives, this book provides a fresh interpretation of Wilson’s policy towards the European Community.
