The War Of Words: Defining The Extreme Right Party Family, Cas Mudde Mar 1996

The War Of Words: Defining The Extreme Right Party Family, Cas Mudde

Cas Mudde

This article presents an overview of the writings on the extreme right party family of the third wave (1980–95). First, the prime criterion for the classification of the party family is discussed. Second, the main critiques of, and alternatives to, the term right‐wing extremism are evaluated. Third, the political parties that are generally considered to be members of the party family are identified. Fourth, subgroups within the larger party family are examined. In the conclusion, the various writings are structured on the basis of four theoretical schools within the broader study of right‐wing extremism.


Bringing Politics Back In: Defense Policy And The Theoretical Study Of Institutions And Processes, Kenneth R. Mayer, Khademian M. Anne Mar 1996

Bringing Politics Back In: Defense Policy And The Theoretical Study Of Institutions And Processes, Kenneth R. Mayer, Khademian M. Anne

Kenneth R Mayer

Application of public administration theory to defense policy and procruemt. Students of public administration, regulatory processes, public bureaucracy, and policy studies rarely focus on defense as their substantive area. leaving the field to those trained in defense studies and international relations. THe result is negligible attention to the domestic political aspects of defense policy and minimal understanding of the administrative aspects of defense policy. We argue that a realistic examination of procurement in a political context of multiple and competing principals illustrates the difficulty of demanding accountability when goals are diverse and heavily debated, measured with difficulty, and where outcomes ...


The Science Has Failed, Milan Meszaros Feb 1996

The Science Has Failed, Milan Meszaros

Milan Meszaros physicist

Nowadays, an interesting popular debate is unravelled on the Bad Astronomy’s site http://www.badastronomy.com/bablog/2006/02/04/outrage-at-attacks-on-nasa-science/ about the connection between the Big Bang and NASA.

It is more interesting that the international community of science as if would not know that the Big Bang and the General Relativity is dead since 1989.

Contending Interpretations Of Bentham’S Utilitarianism, James E. Crimmins Jan 1996

Contending Interpretations Of Bentham’S Utilitarianism, James E. Crimmins

James E Crimmins

This article illustrates the contours of the continuing debate over Bentham's utilitarianism through an analysis of the secondary literature. It assesses the persuasiveness of the principal contemporary "authoritarian" (despotic, totalitarian, collectivist, behaviouralist, constructivist, panopticist and paternalist) and "individualist" (facilitative and liberal) interpretations of Bentham's thought, indicating where they are consistent with his writings and where they are not. Distinctions and conflicts between contending perspectives are found to be rooted in a reliance on different elements of Bentham's vast corpus and emphasis on different components of his utilitarian theory. An examination of the contending perspectives underscores the tensions ...

En la primera parte se realiza un breve resumen de la historia política de ambos países hasta el estallido de la crisis revolucionaria a finales de los los setenta. En la segunda parte se abordan las consecuencias políticas de la guerra y se discute cómo ésta (la guerra) consiguió moldear las arenas políticas que emergieron en estos países al finalizar el conflicto.


Rising Temperatures: Rising Tides, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson Jan 1996

Rising Temperatures: Rising Tides, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Transboundary environmental problems do not distinguish between political boundaries. Global warming is expected to cause thermal expansion of water and melt glaciers. Both are predicted to lead to a rise in sea level. We must enlarge our paradigms to encompass a global reality and reliance upon global participation.

Combining Community Service And The Study Of American Public Policy, William Hudson Dec 1995

Combining Community Service And The Study Of American Public Policy, William Hudson

William E. Hudson

This paper reports on one faculty member’s experience introducing a service-learning component into a public policy course. After a brief description of the rationale and procedures associated with introducing the service component, impacts on student attitude and value change and on student learning are analyzed. Administration of a pre- and post-test found no significant impact of the service-learning on student attitudes. This negative result contradicts the perceptions of both the student and that instructor that service-learning enhanced the quality of learning in the course – whatever its impact on attitudes. Both students and instructors found service effective, as shown in ...

The System Worked: Our Schizophrenic Stance On Welfare, Robert Tsai Dec 1995

The System Worked: Our Schizophrenic Stance On Welfare, Robert Tsai

Robert L Tsai

This is a review of Steven M. Teles's book, Whose Welfare? AFDC and Elite Politics (University Press of Kansas, 1996), which argues that welfare policy reflects a dynamic of elite dissensus, in which public policy fails to reflect popular opinion. I make two central points in the review: first, there are reasons to believe that welfare policy does, in fact, reflect a deeply conflicted American electorate; and second, such a conflict may reveal a healthy deliberative order struggling to reconcile changing priorities with enduring values.

Rallying The Troops: Collective Action And Self-Interest In Un Peacekeeping Contributions, Timothy Ja Passmore, Megan Shannon, Andrew F. Hart Dec 1995

Rallying The Troops: Collective Action And Self-Interest In Un Peacekeeping Contributions, Timothy Ja Passmore, Megan Shannon, Andrew F. Hart

Andrew Hart

Is the acquisition of personnel for UN peacekeeping missions susceptible to free-riding by UN member states? If so, what drives this behavior and what impact does this have on obtaining required personnel for the mission? Using data from 21 missions in 13 African countries between 1990 and 2010, this article addresses whether UN peacekeeping missions experience a shortfall in personnel due to incentives to free-ride by contributing states. It argues that as the number of states contributing to a mission increases, contributors have a greater incentive to free-ride and make suboptimal personnel contributions, leading to greater overall shortfall in the ...
