NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • "Comprehensive, enlightening, and terrifyingly timely."-The New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice) WINNER OF THE GOLDSMITH BOOK PRIZE • SHORTLISTED FOR THE LIONEL GELBER PRIZE • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Washington Post • Time • Foreign Affairs • WBUR • Paste Donald Trump's presidency has raised a question that many of us never thought we'd be asking: Is our democracy in danger? Harvard professors Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt have spent more than twenty years studying the breakdown of democracies in Europe and Latin America, and they believe the answer is yes. Democracy no longer ends with a bang-in a revolution or military coup-but with a whimper: the slow, steady weakening of critical institutions, such as the judiciary and the press, and the gradual erosion of long-standing political norms. The good news is that there are several exit ramps on the road to authoritarianism. The bad news is that, by electing Trump, we have already passed the first one. Drawing on decades of research and a wide range of historical and global examples, from 1930s Europe to contemporary Hungary, Turkey, and Venezuela, to the American South during Jim Crow, Levitsky and Ziblatt show how democracies die-and how ours can be saved. Praise for How Democracies Die "What we desperately need is a sober, dispassionate look at the current state of affairs. Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt, two of the most respected scholars in the field of democracy studies, offer just that."-The Washington Post "Where Levitsky and Ziblatt make their mark is in weaving together political science and historical analysis of both domestic and international democratic crises; in doing so, they expand the conversation beyond Trump and before him, to other countries and to the deep structure of American democracy and politics."-Ezra Klein, Vox "If you only read one book for the rest of the year, read How Democracies Die. . . .This is not a book for just Democrats or Republicans. It is a book for all Americans. It is nonpartisan. It is fact based. It is deeply rooted in history. . . . The best commentary on our politics, no contest."-Michael Morrell, former Acting Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (via Twitter) "A smart and deeply informed book about the ways in which democracy is being undermined in dozens of countries around the world, and in ways that are perfectly legal."-Fareed Zakaria, CNN

'This is an impressively cogent account of the complex, shifting media landscape in France, agreeably written by an acknowledged expert in the field ... finding a workable balance between research expertise and usefulness for teaching is never easy, but this volume comes as close as possible to getting it right.'Journal of European Studies 2012 42: 94'Thanks to his intimate knowledge of French politics and culture, Kuhn has brilliantly captured what makes the uniqueness of the French media system.'Thierry Vedel, Senior Research Fellow at Sciences Po in Paris'This book achieves the remarkable and all too rare combination of offering an extremely clear, accessible and well organised introduction for students of the French Media and providing a host of new perspectives to those well versed in the field.'Dr David Levy, Director, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford, UK'A necessary tool to understand a very particular mass media system such as the French one. After a detailed historical reconstruction Raymond Kuhn offers an interesting interpretation of the present mass media problems under the Sarkozy Presidency.'Paolo Mancini, Università di Perugia, ItalyThe Media in Contemporary France analyses the role of the main news media - press, radio, television and the internet - in one of the world's major democracies. Written by a leading specialist in the field, it covers media policy, news management and image projection during the mediatized 'hyperpresidency' of Nicolas Sarkozy.Raymond Kuhn outlines the historical development of the media in France before providing a critical evaluation of today's digital media landscape, that has seen both the entry of new online actors (such as Google, Facebook and Twitter) and the destabilization of many traditional outlets in both press and broadcasting sectors (for instance, Le Monde and France Télévisions).Key aspects of the structures and functioning of the contemporary media - including ownership, political partisanship, content regulation and policy-making - are covered in depth. The author also looks at the contribution of the French media on the world stage, with the launch of the international rolling news channel, France 24, serving as a case study of France's global media activities.This book will appeal to students in the fields of media and communication studies, political communication, journalism, French politics and society and European Studies.

Selecting a President
7,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The debut of a brand-new civics series for high school seniors and college freshmen, that clearly, concisely and cleverly explains how the United States elects its president Selecting a President explains the nuts and bolts of our presidential electoral system while drawing on rich historical anecdotes from past campaigns. Among the world’s many democracies, U.S. presidential elections are unique, where presidential contenders embark on a grueling, spectacular two-year journey that begins in Iowa and New Hampshire, and ends at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Modern presidential campaigns are a marked departure from the process envisioned by America’s founders. Yet while they've evolved, many of the basic structures of our original electoral system remain in place—even as presidential elections have moved into the modern era with tools like Twitter and Facebook at their disposal—they must still compete in an election governed by rules and mechanisms conceived in the late eighteenth century. In this book, Clift and Spieler demonstrate that presidential campaigns are exciting, hugely important, disillusioning at times but also inspiring.
