The Demons of Liberal Democracy
18,89 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Liberals blame the global retreat of liberal democracy on globalisation and authoritarian leaders. Only liberalism, so they assume, can defend democratic rule against multinationals or populists at home and abroad. In this provocative book, Adrian Pabst contends that liberal democracy is illiberal and undemocratic - intolerant about the values of ordinary people while concentrating power and wealth in the hands of unaccountable elites.Under the influence of contemporary liberalism, democracy is sliding into oligarchy, demagogy and anarchy. Liberals, far from defending open markets and free speech, promote monopolies such as the new tech giants that undermine competition and democratic debate. Liberal individualism has eroded the social bonds and civic duties on which democracy depends for trust and cooperation. To banish liberal democracy's demons, Pabst proposes radical ideas for economic democracy, a politics of persuasion and a better balance of personal freedom with social solidarity.This book's defence of democratic politics against both liberals and populists will speak to all readers trying to understand our age of upheaval.

Liberal Democracy and Islamic Political System
66,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Liberal Democracy, also known as constitutional democracy, is a common form of representative democracy in which elected representatives who hold power are limited by a constitution that emphasizes protecting individual liberties, equality and the rights of minority groups. Among the many liberties that might be protected are freedom of speech and assembly, freedom of religion, the right to private property and privacy as well as equality before the law and due process under the rule of law. Such constitutional rights, also call liberal rights, are guaranteed through various controlled institutions and statutory laws. Additionally, the constitutions of most contemporary liberal democracies prohibit majoritarianism, which is rule by the will of majority, when it harms those in the minority. Among the most important main elements of liberal democracy in the West, as many modern commentators and political theorists are: Popular Sovereignty, Civil Liberties, Majority Rule, Elected Representatives, Separation of Powers, Political Participation, Competitive Elections and Political Party system and Interest Groups.

National Populism: The Revolt Against Liberal D...

A SUNDAY TIMES BOOK OF THE YEARA crucial new guide to one of the most urgent political phenomena of our time: the rise of national populismAcross the West, there is a rising tide of people who feel excluded, alienated from mainstream politics, and increasingly hostile towards minorities, immigrants and neo-liberal economics. Many of these voters are turning to national populist movements, which have begun to change the face of Western liberal democracy, from the United States to France, Austria to the UK.This radical turn, we are told, is a last howl of rage from an aging electorate on the verge of extinction. Their leaders are fascistic and their politics anti-democratic, their existence a side-show to liberal democracy. But this version of events, as Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin show, could not be further from the truth.Written by two of the foremost experts on fascism and the rise of national populism, this lucid and deeply-researched book is a vital guide to our transformed political landscape. Challenging conventional wisdoms, Eatwell and Goodwin make a compelling case for serious, respectful engagement with the supporters and ideas of national populism - not least because it is a tide that won't be stemmed anytime soon.

Civic Education and Liberal Democracy
90,68 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book explores the inherent tension in civic education. There is a surging belief in contemporary European society that liberal democracy should work harder to reproduce the civic and normative setups of national populations through public education. The cardinal notion is that education remains the best means to accomplish this end, and educational regimes appropriate tools to make the young more tolerant, civic, democratic, communal, cosmopolitan, and prone to engaged activism. This book is concerned with the ambiguities that strain standard visions of civic education and educational statehood. On the one hand, civic-normative education is expected to drive tolerance in the face of conflicting good-life affirmations and accelerating worldview pluralisation, on the other hand, nation-states are primarily interested in reproducing the normative prerogatives that prevail in restricted cultural environments. This means that civic education unfolds on two irreconcilable planes at once: one cosmopolitan/tolerant, another parochial/intolerant. The book will be of significant interest to students and scholars of education, sociology, normative statehood, democracy, and liberal political culture, particularly those working in the areas of civic education, as well as education policy-makers.

Rawls' Liberal Democracy and Justice Slant:Incl...
64,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The fundamental quandary that this text sets out to grapple with is that of construing John Rawls' democratic theory stance. It is of germane stance to accentuate that Rawls deliberates on the issues appertaining to democracy from a justice standpoint as this is lucidly presented in his, A Theory of Justice (1971). Furthermore, it is of extreme import to accentuate the unadorned fact that whenever there is a discussion about justice, a conception of fairness graduates into being implied. Rawls' predilection for justice silhouettes his democratic theory. Owing to this construal, one then can moot a rationalization of Rawls' theory of democracy as that one which is founded on justice, thus, siring a liberal sort of democracy. It is due to this mere fact that this disquisition tackles Rawls' Liberal Democracy and Justice. This notwithstanding, it is pertinent to note that, he further fetches in another notion of Right. Contending from the erstwhile comprehension, it becomes incumbent upon the author to here delve into the discursivities of the theme at hand by averring, Rawls prefers Right to Good in the extant subject matter on issues of democracy.
