Stability of Democracy

Stability of Democracy

Last year Robert C Lieberman and Suzanne Mettler published an important work on American democracy called Four Dangers. He used the events of American history to show how these four threats contributed to the crisis of American democracy. He concluded the book with the dreadful idea that all four of these plagues had occurred in the past. This revised volume focuses more on American politics. His head, Stability of Democracy, means the United States will endure four threats.

Polarization was always more than one of the four dangers. It magnified the results of the other three. As a result, the revised volume is a continuation of the old work of Lieberman and Mettler although it only focuses on the effects of division on American politics. That said, the contributions of some scholars make this book amazing. They include contributions from Paul Pierson, Jennifer McCoy and Murat Somer, Theda Skocpol, and many more. It is an impressive collection of words on various aspects of American polarization or politics.

Good governance has become a major issue in comparative politics in recent years. Although it involves a wide range of aspects, it often focuses on ways to get rid of acne. However, it often focuses on newly established democracies or developing countries. Casey Michel reports that the United States has a work to do at home to provide better governance. This is the work of journalism more than political myths. However, it can attract the attention of students as well as academics. Reminds me of Tom Burgis’ Cleopopia Except it’s a story close to home.

The stability of Everything

The line between government and civil society has been severely criticized for many years if not more. Reagan and Thatcher Revolution completely changed the line in favor of privacy. While it was necessary to maintain a high level of secrecy in the 1980s, many scholars and activists today argue that it has gone too far. Donald Cohen and Allen Mikaelian provide examples of where human ownership has grown exponentially and successfully. It comes as part of the wonks’ program and is an incentive for freedom fighters.

Hannah Arendt and Isaiah Berlin

Hannah Arendt and Isaiah Berlin are two 20th-century political thinkers. They are superior to other philosophers, sociologists, and other intellectuals. Moreover, they share many of the same things as their Jewish heritage and their commitment to human rights. At the same time they approach freedom differently from each other. Kei Hiruta offers a new study of their similarities and differences from the story of their personal experiences with each other instead of examining dry texts. Surprisingly, this is a rare picture of the “cow” among political philosophers who can allow readers to understand their ideas in new ways.
