Ideology and Strategy by Leif Lewin

Book Description

Ideology and Strategy is an analysis of issues in Swedish parliamentary history over the past 100 years. Leif Lewin has chosen eight issues and scrutinized them using traditional analysis and, importantly, game-theoretic reasoning. For each, he presents the outcome and its history and the strategic behaviour of the actors. He gives special attention to the strategy used by the potential loser. The first chapter presents the methodology to be employed in the analysis and introduces concepts and strategies such as voter's paradox, prisoners' dilemma, the Condorcet method, logrolling and others. The final chapter includes a review of the concept of politics as rational action. Lewin's analysis begins with the tariff dispute of the 1880s and ranges from suffrage reform, parliamentary government, the crisis programme of the 1930s, economic planning, the pension system, nuclear energy, to employee investment funds. Ideology and Strategy blends history, substantive issues and potential analysis, and is an important contribution to rational choice theory.

Books By Author Leif Lewin

Democratic Accountability by Leif Lewin Democratic Accountability, Hardback (March 2007)

It is common for political leaders to claim they have no control over bad outcomes. In a staunch defence of the possibility for meaningful democratic decision making, the author finds that the political leaders exert a good measure of control, and the meaning of the functioning democracy is that the people hold their leaders accountable.

Ideology and Strategy by Leif Lewin Ideology and Strategy, Paperback (November 2006)

Ideology and Strategy is an analysis of issues in Swedish parliamentary history over the past 100 years.

Self-Interest and Public Interest in Western Politics by Leif Lewin Self-Interest and Public Interest in Western Politics, Paperback (April 1991)

Is it self-interest or public interest that dominates Western politics? The author examines more than 200 studies of democracy in action from 17 countries and argues that the prevalent theory that egoism rules simply does not match the facts.
