Theories of Federalism by Wayne Norman

Book Description

This project pulls together classic and modern readings and essays that explore theories of federalism. Spanning the Seventeenth through Twenty-first-centuries of European, U.S. and Canadian thinkers, this attempts to be a comprehensive reader for students in political theory. The emphasis throughout is on the normative argument, the advantages or disadvantages of federal and confederal arrangements compared to unitary states, and on the relative merits of various proposals to improve particular federations or confederations. These also draw on the full range of political science subfields: from political sociology, political economy and constitutional studies to comparative politics and international relations. There are also readings, both contemporary and historical, that attempt to clarify conceptual issues.

Books By Author Wayne Norman

Negotiating Nationalism by Wayne Norman Negotiating Nationalism, Hardback (May 2006)

In a world with at least three times as many nations as states, what are the limits of legitimate nation-building? How can national self-determination be coordinated within a federal system? This book provides one of the most extensive discussions to date on the ethics of nation-building and the nature and justification of federal systems.

Canadian Political Philosophy by Wayne Norman Canadian Political Philosophy, Paperback (November 2000)

The essays collected in Canadian Political Philosophy reflect a broad range of contemporary political and philosophical issues: liberalism and citizenship; equality, justice, and gender; minority rights, multiculturalism, and identity; nationalism and self-determination; and finally, topics in the history of political philosophy.

Citizenship in Diverse Societies by Wayne Norman Citizenship in Diverse Societies, Paperback (March 2000)

Is it possible, in a modern, pluralistic society, to promote common bonds of citizenship while accommodating ethnocultural diversity? This work examines points of conflict and convergence between concerns for citizenship and diversity in democracies, reassessing and refining existing theories.
