Globalisation and Equality (Paperback): Keith Horton, Haig Patapan Globalisation and Equality (Paperback)
Keith Horton, Haig Patapan
R890 R523 Discovery Miles 5 230 Save R367 (41%) Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Is globalisation creating a more unequal world? Is it creating new forms of inequality? Does it make certain pre-existing forms of inequality more morally or politically significant than they would otherwise have been? Globalisation and Equality examines these and related questions, exploring the way increasing globalisation is challenging our conceptions of equality. The contributors explore these themes from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. Some adopt a more abstract approach, exploring foundational questions concerning the meaning of equality, its social and political dimensions, and more specifically its moral implications in a global context. Others engage the general themes of globalisation and equality by focusing on specific topics, such as welfare, citizenship, gender, culture, and the environment. Original in the questions it poses, and interdisciplinary in its approach, this collection of essays will appeal to all those with an interest in globalisation and equality.

Machiavelli in Love - The Modern Politics of Love and Fear (Paperback): Haig Patapan Machiavelli in Love - The Modern Politics of Love and Fear (Paperback)
Haig Patapan
R881 Discovery Miles 8 810 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Machiavelli in Love argues that the key to modernity is its understanding of love. This understanding, a reformulation of classical eros and Christian agape and caritas, accounts for significant aspects of modern political thought and practice, ranging from its conception of beauty, to its theories of power and constitutionalism, to its understanding of philosophy. To explore this modern conception of love Haig Patapan returns to Machiavelli and the origins of modernity, where the radical nature of the proposed changes compelled detailed elaboration and defence, allowing us to discern with greater clarity the choices faced and the claims advanced. Machiavelli in Love examines Machiavelli's 'modern' understanding of love and its political and philosophical consequences by relying on the distinctions he himself makes between his epistolary, poetical and political works. Each chapter of the book engages different facets of his thought to yield a comprehensive appreciation of Machiavellian love and fear and its implication for modernity. Machiavelli in Love is a unique and fascinating book that will appeal to students and scholars in fields as diverse as intellectual history, philosophy, and political science.

Haig Patapan
R2,018 Discovery Miles 20 180 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The High Court is taking an increasingly important role in shaping the contours of democracy in Australia. In deciding fundamental democratic questions, does the Court pursue a consistent and overarching democratic vision? Judging Democracy addresses this question by examining the Court's recent decisions on human rights, citizenship, native title and separation of powers. It represents the first major political and legal examination of the Court's new jurisprudence and the way it is influencing democracy and the institutions of governance in Australia. A foreword to the book has been written by the former Chief Justice of the High Court, Sir Anthony Mason.

Dispersed Democratic Leadership - Origins, Dynamics, and Implications (Paperback): John Kane, Haig Patapan, Paul 't. Hart Dispersed Democratic Leadership - Origins, Dynamics, and Implications (Paperback)
John Kane, Haig Patapan, Paul 't. Hart
R1,097 Discovery Miles 10 970 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Dispersed Democratic Leadership examines both the scope and consequences of the dispersal of the leadership role in democratic societies, a topic that has been relatively neglected by a political science literature dominated by studies of executive power. Individual chapters investigate the many loci of leadership found in modern democracies, some ancient and some newly emergent, some institutionalized and some ad-hoc, some self-consciously political and some avowedly a-political. In assessing the effects of leadership dispersal, the book argues that understanding how policies are shaped in a democracy requires balancing the usual person-centered approach with one that is more contextual, institutional, and relational. The public leadership role of people in business, the media, non-governmental organizations, bureaucracy, law, show-business and many other areas are instructively investigated to enhance our appreciation of the complexity of democratic political systems and to allow us to assess the effects, both good and ill, of democratic leadership dispersal.

The Democratic Leader - How Democracy Defines, Empowers and Limits its Leaders (Hardcover): John Kane, Haig Patapan The Democratic Leader - How Democracy Defines, Empowers and Limits its Leaders (Hardcover)
John Kane, Haig Patapan
R1,978 Discovery Miles 19 780 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The Democratic Leader argues that leaders occupy a unique place in democracies. The foundational principle of democracy - popular sovereignty - implies that the people must rule. Yet the people can rule only by granting a trust of authority to individual leaders. This produces a tension that results in a unique type of leadership, specifically, democratic leadership. Democratic leaders, once they have the confidence and authority of the people, are very powerful because they rule through consent and not through fear. Yet in many respects they are the weakest of leaders, because democrats distrust leaders and impose on them a range of far-reaching constraints-legal, moral and political. The democratic leader must perpetually navigate the powerful and contending forces of public cynicism, founded in the suspicion that all leaders are self-interested power-seekers, and of public idealism, founded in a perennial hope that good leaders will act nobly by sacrificing themselves for the people. The Democratic Leader suggests that the inherent difficulty of this form of leadership cannot be resolved, and indeed is necessary for securing the strength and stability of democracy.

Haig Patapan, John Wanna, Patrick Weller
R776 Discovery Miles 7 760 Out of stock

Westminster Legacies examines the ways in which the Westminster system has influenced the shaping of responsible government and democracy across Asia, Australasia and the Pacific. The book includes chapters on each of India, Pakistan, Nepal, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the smaller Pacific island nations, and considers how Westminster remains important for understanding political institutions and practices in these countries. It also examines the ways the Westminster system has been adapted in these different countries in the light of local practices and traditions. ""Westminster Legacies"" explores the way Westminster understandings of the executive, bureaucracy, parliament and responsible government have been influential in these countries with diverse histories, cultures and traditions. It also looks at the conditions under which Westminster legacies have taken root and endured, and those conditions that have eroded or significantly changed its influence. Some of the Westminster-derived states in this survey have teetered on the brink of becoming 'failed states' (especially in terms of legitimate democracies), while others remain robust adversarial democracies. This is the first comparative analysis of the transplanted Westminster systems throughout Asia and the Pacific - even though the region is littered with diverse Westminster-derived systems.

Good Democratic Leadership - On Prudence and Judgment in Modern Democracies (Hardcover): John Kane, Haig Patapan Good Democratic Leadership - On Prudence and Judgment in Modern Democracies (Hardcover)
John Kane, Haig Patapan
R2,116 Discovery Miles 21 160 Out of stock

Good Democratic Leadership: On Prudence and Judgment in Modern Democracies explores whether, in the current atmosphere of international economic and political tension, and more generally, democracies foster and support effective political judgment and good leadership. In one sense, with their ideals of transparent government and extensive deliberation, democracies might appear to promote such good leadership and sound decision-making. Yet, in another sense, democratic leaders continue to face a number of challenges, including the sometimes cumbersome institutional limits placed on their discretion, the need for balance between national interest, popular sentiment and universal values as well as the problem of disproportionate influence of commercial interests in the management of the economy. In analysing various aspects of democratic leadership, judgement and decision-making from a variety of theoretical and practical perspectives, all the contributors to this book address this question of the extent to which democracies support good judgment and thereby the possibility of good leadership in democracies.
