Developments in West European politics ( Book )
6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 294 libraries worldwide
Western Europe is changing fast and dramatically. The traditional models of nation-state politics have been challenged by increasing political and economic integration in the European Union, the end of the Cold War division of the continent, the emergence of a global political economy and of new forms of ethnic and cultural identity. All aspects of political life have been affected, from institutions and policies, to party systems, values and beliefs. Developments in West European Politics brings together specially commissioned chapters by leading authorities to provide a tightly integrated analysis of politics, government and public policy set in a broad economic and social context. Its core focus is on the extent to which a new multilevel system of governance is emerging, its character and its implications.
Bureaucratic elites in western European states ( Book )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 293 libraries worldwide
"Bureaucratic Elites in Western European States provides information about the structures and composition of the higher civil service and its position in the political structure through a comparative analysis of Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Greece, Denmark, and Sweden. The book explores how higher civil service has developed in the light of the massive changes in European societies in the past thirty years. Changes include the size of the top level of the civil service, the growing social diversity of its ranks, and the tendency to recruit from outside the civil service. The book also examines whether wider social changes, such as the democratization of education, the growth of interest groups, and the increasing importance of the European Union have an impact on the higher levels of bureaucracy and produce similar patterns of change throughout Europe."--Jacket.
The national co-ordination of EU policy : the domestic level ( Book )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 274 libraries worldwide
"Eschewing the 'Europeanisation' problematic within which the issue is usually addressed, this book adopts a broader, more inclusive approach. It examines domestic processes and investigates co-ordination in ten member states - Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom - looking at co-ordinating ambitions, the actors involved in EU policy making, and the structures and processes by which policy is made." "From a comparative perspective, the book identifies and assesses the impact of the influences that have shaped systems of national co-ordination - the demands exerted by Union membership, the institutional structure of the national polity, the pre-existing balance between domestic institutions, administrative norms and values, and attitudes, both popular and elite, to European integration. It assesses the extent to which there has been a convergent response to the administrative challenges posed by membership on the part of the member states or whether a pattern of divergence emerges. The effectiveness of member states in influencing policy outcomes at the European level is also addressed."--BOOK JACKET.

The constitutional and institutional development of the European Union, and federalism in particular, are widely and intensively debated.

It includes both an analysis of their necessary preconditions as well as an evaluation of their advantages and disadvantages compared with other forms of state organization.
