During the past decade, Democrats and Republicans each have received about fifty percent of the votes and controlled about half of the government, but this has not resulted in policy deadlock. Despite highly partisan political posturing, the policy regime has been largely moderate. Incremental, yet substantial, policy innovations such as welfare reform; deficit reduction; the North American Free Trade Agreement; and the deregulation of telecommunications, banking, and agriculture have been accompanied by such continuities as Social Security and Medicare, the maintenance of earlier immigration reforms, and the persistence of many rights-based policies, including federal affirmative action. In Seeking the Center, twenty-one contributors analyze policy outcomes in light of the frequent alternation in power among evenly divided parties. They show how the triumph of policy moderation and the defeat of more ambitious efforts, such as health care reform, can be explained by mutually supporting economic, intellectual, and political forces. Demonstrating that the determinants of public policy become clear by probing specific issues, rather than in abstract theorizing, they restore the politics of policymaking to the forefront of the political science agenda. A successor to Martin A. Levin and Marc K. Landy’s influential The New Politics of Public Policy (Johns Hopkins University Press, 1995), this book will be vital reading for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in political science and public policy, as well as a resource for scholars in both fields.

Eine Dekade nach der deutschen Rentenreform im Jahr 2001 wird an den Ergebnissen vernehmliche Kritik geäußert. Großbritannien gilt als Vorreiter dieser Reformen, nachdem dort im Jahr 1988 die Privatisierung von Sozialleistungen und die Regulierung des neuen Marktes für Rentenprodukte eingeführt wurden. Michaela Willert vergleicht in ihrer Studie die Entwicklung beider Wohlfahrtsmärkte und deren Wirkung auf künftige Alterseinkommen. Der britische Fall zeigt, wie schwierig es ist, die Ziele der Rentenreform – das Staatsbudget zu entlasten, Markteingriffe zu begrenzen und sozialpolitische Erwartungen zu erfüllen – gleichermaßen zu erreichen.

Mit den nationalen und europäischen Schuldenbremsen wurde Austerität tief in die Verfassungen eingeschrieben und damit zur finanzpolitischen Normalität. Austerity Forever verfolgt diese Entwicklungen zurück in die 1970er Jahre und zeigt, dass staatliche Haushaltsdisziplin auch nach der Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise ab 2008 die haushaltspolitischen Auseinandersetzungen prägt.

Transatlantic Policymaking in an Age of Austerity integrates the study of politics and public policy across a broad spectrum of regulatory and social welfare policies in the United States and several nations of Western Europe. The editors and a sterling list of contributors look at policymaking in the 1990s through the present—providing a comparative politics framework—stressing both parallel development and the differences between and among the nations. Similar prevailing ideas and political factors can be identified and transatlantic comparisons made—providing for a clearer understanding of the policymaking process. Faith in regulated markets and the burden of rising welfare costs are concerns found on both sides of the Atlantic. Western democracies also share political climates colored by economic austerity; low trust in government, pressures from interest groups, and a sharply divided electorate. Because of differing political processes and differing policy starting points, a variety of disparate policy decisions have resulted. Real world policymaking in the areas of welfare, health, labor, immigration reform, disability rights, consumer and environmental regulation, administrative reforms, and corporate governance are compared. Ultimately, the last decade is best characterized as one of "drift," sluggish changes with little real innovation and much default to the private sector. In general, policymakers on both sides of the ocean, constrained by economic necessity, have been unable to produce policy outcomes that satisfy the key segments of the electorate. The contributors examine the United States, Great Britain, France, and Germany, as well as a number of other European countries, and study the European Union itself as a policymaking institution. Transatlantic Policymaking in an Age of Austerity distills the prominent issues, politics, and roles played by governmental institutions into a new understanding of the dynamics of policymaking in and among transatlantic nations.

Unlike any other text available for American government courses, this exciting new text takes a political development approach. Written by two pre-eminent scholars of American political development, Marc Landy and Sid Milkis, this concise new text explores American government as an entity that evolves through the debates that have occurred in American politics and political culture over time. This approach gives readers a context for understanding the growth of U.S. systems and laws and encourages critical thinking. The give-and-take between individual rights and equality frames the discussion of each issue.
