The latest in the six-volume set of global policy handbooks, the Handbook of Global Political Policy utilizes a cross-national, cross-policy approach to examine the public policy of six different regions around the world. Combining actual and theoretical perspectives, this expansive reference compares and presents nonideological resolutions to current political conditions worldwide.

With contributions by over 30 international policy experts and academicians, the Handbook of Global Political Policy

  • addresses the dilemma of multiculturalism with solutions sensitive to self-determination, federalization, and nationalization
  • determines elite acceptance as a key factor in the survival of Russian democracy and investigates from which group the new elite will arise
  • postulates causes for the breakdown and default of the Indian government, with a case study of the Panchayati Raj System
  • offers a current perspective on the role of the People's Liberation Army in China's democratization process
  • details shared concepts of leadership in China and Taiwan
  • highlights cases of donor-assisted democratization in Africa, and recommends paths of action for international donors
  • explains why the federal republics of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia had disproportionately greater numbers of critics than defenders
  • considers the effects of Brazilian institutional arrangements promoting state reform
  • discusses campaign finance reform in the United States

    Supplemented with over 1200 literature references, tables, and drawings, the Handbook of Global Political Policy is an insightful resource for public administrators and public policy experts, political scientists, economists, sociologists, attorneys, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
