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.

The evolution of the modern political campaign has taken us from television sets in the living room to wireless new media in the hands of voters. Reaching voters with targeted messages, candidates increasingly rely on consumer-driven techniques. What works at the national level can be tailored to work even more effectively at the neighborhood level. Future campaigns will continue to make use of recent innovations like meetups, blogs, and Internet polling. Newer tactics such as fundraising on the web and get out the vote drives with microtargeting via Blackberrys and PDAs are changing the way candidates advertise, ask for money, interact with the media, coordinate with their party organizations, and make the most of interest group support. What, then, are the implications for the democratic process and governance? To help students make sense of how and why campaigns are changing, well-respected scholars and practitioners keep their focus on the horizon of campaigning and offer a cutting-edge look at what to expect in the 2008 elections and beyond.Contributors include Robert Boatright, Tad Devine, Joseph Graf, Nina Kasniunas, Jeremy Mayer, Candice Nelson, Tari Renner, Mark Rozell, Ronald Shaiko, Dick Simpson, and Clyde Wilcox.

Zieht "The Donald" ins Weiße Haus? Für seine Fans verheißt er die Rückkehr goldener Zeiten. Für seine Gegner ist er wahlweise ein Lügner, ein Großmaul, ein Demagoge, ein Rassist oder vieles mehr. Ganz egal, wie man zu ihm steht – der Immobilien-Tycoon ist dem mächtigsten Amt der Welt bereits näher gekommen, als alle es für möglich gehalten hätten. Zeit also, sich zumindest einmal mit seinen Ansichten vertraut zu machen. Diese finden sich in seinem aktuellen Buch, in dem er, wen wundert's, darlegt, wie er sein geschundenes Land wieder zu alter Größe führen kann. Ein Buch das polarisieren wird. Ein Buch, das man gelesen haben sollte, um über die Person Donald Trump mitreden zu können.
