In the wake of the ratification of the Constitution of Lisbon, the European Union must now also contend with the central question of a living democracy. Whereas during the French Revolution there was extensive bloodshed, today a new civilized culture of citizen participation has emerged: the European Citizens' Initiative. The initiative allows Europeans the formidable opportunity to actively participate in the shaping of their Union, to get involved and to be heard. The book is not merely a plea for a European Citizen's participation movement. Instead, by offering practical suggestions, it serves as a tangible guide for anyone planning a European-wide initiative. The book is completed by concrete recommendations to the European Union for promoting and monitoring a trans-European initiative. The book also pays special attention to the use of new media in the citizen participation process.

Find out the real impact political marketing has on the democratic process Winning Elections with Political Marketing is a unique look at the election process on both sides of the Atlantic, providing rare insight into how modern political communication and marketing strategies are used in the United States and the United Kingdom. The leading political researchers present a cross-section of their latest findings, augmented with easy-to-read tables, charts, and figures, and reinforced with extensive references and bibliographies. The book addresses the key issues that define the interplay between political marketing and the electorate in both countries, including advertising, research methods and cross-cultural research results, political choice behavior, imagery management, the integration of business and social science theory, and the impact of political marketing on democracy. While the national election cycles of the two countries may be fundamentally different, their election processes share one thing in common-a trend toward “permanent campaigning” through embedded marketing tactics that's becoming standard practice in the United States and the United Kingdom. Winning Elections with Political Marketing examines the theoretical underpinnings of policy development, the characteristics of a successful political candidate, political marketing from the perspective of the voters, campaign finance regulations, and the effects of technological changes on political communication. Winning Elections with Political Marketing looks at: The Political Triangle determining market intelligence class, rhetoric, and candidate portrayal voter perceptions the role of President as party leader lobbying constituent communication voter behavior grass roots campaigns political consulting the Internet and e-newsletters the advantages of public funding and a study of the United States presidential primaries from 1976 to 2004 Winning Elections with Political Marketing is an essential resource for political practitioners, researchers, and scholars, candidates seeking political office, lobbyists, political action groups, public relations professionals, journalists, fundraisers, advertising specialists, and anyone with an interest in the political process.

Aufgewachsen in der Bronx, Puertoricanerin, die Kindheit prekär, der Vater Alkoholiker, die Mutter überfordert – Sonia Sotomayor war es nicht gerade in die Wiege gelegt, eines Tages Richterin am höchsten Gericht der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika zu werden. Mit einem großen Herzen und viel Humor erzählt diese Ausnahmefrau von ihrem Weg, aber nicht um sich dabei auf die Schulter zu klopfen, sondern um anderen Menschen mit ihrer eigenen Geschichte Mut zu machen. Ein hinreißendes, ansteckendes Buch über das Trotzdem und über die – wirklich wichtigen – Dinge des Lebens. „’Nach der Lektüre werden mich die Leser nach menschlichen Kriterien beurteilen’, schreibt Sonia Sotomayor. Wir, die wir in diesem Fall die Jury sind, finden sie einfach unwiderstehlich.“ Washingtonian „Überwältigende und stark geschriebene Memoiren zum Thema Identität und Persönlichkeitsfindung ... Offenherzig, scharf beobachtet und vor allem tief empfunden.“ The New York Times „Eine Frau, die weiß, wo sie herkommt und die die Kraft hat, uns dorthin mitzunehmen.“ The New York Times Book Review

Bernie Sanders zeigt, dass eine wahre gesellschaftliche Erneuerung nur von links geschehen kann. Seine Ideen eines modernen demokratischen Sozialismus sind wichtiger als je zuvor – für die USA und für die ganze Welt. In der führenden Nation des Westens spielen die Belange der Mittelschicht und der Geringverdiener, aber auch die des Umweltschutzes und der Minder heiten eine empörend geringe Rolle. Doch der Sozialist Bernie Sanders kämpft weiter für eine politische Revolution: für eine Ökonomie, die nicht nur Jobs schafft, sondern auch für gerechte Löhne sorgt; für ein Gesundheitswesen, das allen zugute kommt; für den nachhaltigen Schutz unserer Umwelt — und gegen jede Form von Rassismus. Nur so wird es gelingen, den USA und der ganzen Welt eine bessere Zukunft zu schaffen. Sanders’ Buch ist die linkspolitische Agenda für alle, die mit dem Primat der Profitgier und der Willkür des Establishments nicht einverstanden sind und nach neuen Wegen jenseits des Raubtierkapitalismus suchen.
