Election Law and Democratic Theory

While numerous books and articles examine various aspects either of democratic theory or of specific topics in election law, there is no comprehensive book that provides a detailed and scholarly discussion of the political and democratic theory underpinnings of election law. Election Law and Democratic Theory fills this important gap, as author David Schultz offers a scholarly analysis of the political principles and democratic values underlying election law and the regulation of political campaigns and participants in the United States. The book provides the first full-length examination of the political theories that form the basis for many of the current debates in election law that structure both Supreme Court and scholarly considerations of topics ranging from campaign finance reform, voting rights, reapportionment, and ballot access to the rights of political parties, the media, and other players in the system. It challenges much of the current debate in election law and argues for more discussion and development of a democratic political theory to support and guide election law jurisprudence.

Law, Pragmatism, and Democracy

Author: Richard A. Posner

Richard Posner argues for a conception of the liberal state based on pragmatic theories of government. He views the actions of elected officials as guided by interests rather than by reason and the decisions of judges by discretion rather than by rules. He emphasizes the institutional and material, rather than moral and deliberative, factors in democratic decision making. Posner argues that democracy is best viewed as a competition for power by means of regular elections. Citizens should not be expected to play a significant role in making complex public policy regarding, say, taxes or missile defense.

Legislatures are political bodies essential to democracy and the rule of law. They present social scientists with numerous intriguing puzzles, with far-reaching implications for our understanding of political institutions. Why, and how, have these ancient assemblies, established in pre-democratic times, survived the transition to mass democracies? How have they adapted? How do they structure such processes as budgeting, legislation, and executive oversight? How do their members get selected, and what consequences flow from differences in these rules? What roles do committees and political parties play in contemporary legislatures? What functions do legislatures perform in autocratic, semi-democratic or recently democratized societies? What explains the similarities and differences in legislative rules, powers and recruitment? What are the policy and other consequences of variation in how legislatures are organized and function? The 33 chapters in The Oxford Handbook of Legislative Studies, written by 47 of the most distinguished legislative scholars, provide a comprehensive and up-to-date description and assessment of the state of the art in legislative studies. Key themes explored include theoretical paradigms and methodological approaches to the study of legislatures, representation and legislative careers, internal organization, the role of parties within legislatures and the role of legislatures in policy making and accountability. The Handbook also explores the emergence of parliaments in historical and contemporary contexts, including new democracies and trans-national institutions.

This book differs from many other casebooks in two significant ways. First, the cases are included and edited with an eye towards the number of class hours available to teach the course. The chapters are constructed so that the content can be covered in similar blocks of time. For example, one class session covers infancy, intoxication, duress, necessity, and entrapment and two class sessions are devoted to coverage of insanity. The book can be substantially completed in a three-hour course and easily completed in a four-hour course. The other feature of this book is that it is designed to focus students' attention on the problem at hand as illustrated by the case they are studying. Before each case, the student is told why the case has been included and what they should be considering when reading the case. The notes and questions that follow each case are designed to focus the students' attention on some of the more difficult issues raised by the case. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

This casebook is designed for an intensive examination of the union-management relationship throughout its major phases. The representative labor union and the collective bargaining process as it has evolved in this country are given center stage. Generally, the chronology of organizing, bargaining, and contract enforcement is followed, with a review of the law regulating internal union affairs. As in the past, the authors have tried to respond generously to the most significant current developments in the field while simultaneously providing a set of materials that will be truly manageable in the usual three- or four-hour course. This well-organized and comprehensive text covers the historical development of labor organizations, the statutory right of employees to form, join, and assist unions, to organize for collective bargaining purposes, to use the bargaining process to influence their wages, hours, and working conditions, and to administer existing bargaining agreements. It also covers the union duty of fair representation and the regulation of internal union affairs. The authors also include NLRA and LMRA preemption and antitrust exemptions because of their continuing relevance. Significant changes have been made in this new 12th Edition including: • the most recent decisions from the Labor Board and the courts dealing with Labor Law issues; • a revised and shortened section on labor and antitrust; • updated coverage on union waiver of individual statutory forum rights, including 14 Penn Plaza v. Pyett; • condensed coverage of internal union affairs suitable for inclusion in a single class; and • a streamlined final section on critiques and proposals for labor law reform, offering critical perspectives on labor law suitable for course review and wrap-up.

Voting Rights and Election Law is a law school text book covering the law surrounding the electoral system. Coverage begins with voting qualifications and barriers to exercise of the franchise. The book covers the authority of the courts to remedy violations of the right to vote. Other topics include the One-Person/One Vote Doctrine under the Federal Constitution and the effects of the Voting Rights Act. The book also covers the role of political parties and term limits for federal and state office. Campaign finance and political speech each receive treatment. The book concludes with a chapter on methods for remedying errors in elections. In Chapter 1 students examine questions surrounding the constitutional right to vote and legislatures' power to restrict the classes of persons entitled to the franchise. The remainder of the text proceeds chronologically through the electoral process, from districting, with its issues of one person, one vote and the role of race under the Constitution and the Voting Rights Act; to the place of political parties in the electoral and constitutional structure; to limitations on ballot access; to the First Amendment's protection of political speech, including an in-depth treatment of campaign finance; to rules governing the voting process itself; to vote-counting; to remedies for elections that have gone wrong. Compared to other casebooks in the field, Voting Rights and Election Law emphasizes the texts of leading court opinions rather than commentary and political-science research. The book focuses on the legal principles and language adopted by courts in deciding election cases, rather than competing political theories about elections and democracy. Students are, however, encouraged through notes and questions to examine and question the empirical assumptions and theoretical premises behind the opinions.

Wie Demokratien sterben

Und was wir dagegen tun können

Author: Steven Levitsky,Daniel Ziblatt

Publisher: DVA

Category: Political Science

Page: 320

Ausgezeichnet mit dem NDR Kultur Sachbuchpreis 2018 als bestes Sachbuch des Jahres Demokratien sterben mit einem Knall oder mit einem Wimmern. Der Knall, also das oft gewaltsame Ende einer Demokratie durch einen Putsch, einen Krieg oder eine Revolution, ist spektakulärer. Doch das Dahinsiechen einer Demokratie, das Sterben mit einem Wimmern, ist alltäglicher – und gefährlicher, weil die Bürger meist erst aufwachen, wenn es zu spät ist. Mit Blick auf die USA, Lateinamerika und Europa zeigen die beiden Politologen Steven Levitsky und Daniel Ziblatt, woran wir erkennen, dass demokratische Institutionen und Prozesse ausgehöhlt werden. Und sie sagen, an welchen Punkten wir eingreifen können, um diese Entwicklung zu stoppen. Denn mit gezielter Gegenwehr lässt sich die Demokratie retten – auch vom Sterbebett.
