Description : In the late 1930s, when almost all countries closed their doors to Jewish refugees from Germany, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia) was one of the few countries which retained an open door policy for refugees. The few Jewish refugees lucky enough to learn of the existence of this haven were granted entry without any hardship. However, all the mass settlement projects to accommodate Jewish refugees, from the Mwinilunga Plan (July 1938) to the 440 Families Plan (summer 1939), were rejected by the colonial authorities. Although they provided economic reasons for their refusal to support the settlement plans, one of the main reasons was the existence of anti-alien and antisemitic sentiments among some of the Rhodesian settlers. Only 250 Jewish immigrants entered the country on an individual basis in 1938-39. The Anglo-Jewish leadership, in particular the Emigration (Planning) Committee in Great Britain, failed to inform Jews in Germany and elsewhere in Europe of the possible refuge in Northern Rhodesia and did not support the 440 Families Plan. During the war, Rhodesia accommodated tens of thousands of Polish non-Jewish refugees.

Description : This is the first study to analyse the serious problems and real opportunities that the return of Hong Kong poses to China. Examining the relationships between Greater China, Hong Kong and the West, Hong Kong: China's Challenge explores the challenges that Chinese policy makers face up to 1997 and beyond: the clash of political cultures; handling problematic negotiations; and dealing with conflicting economic interests. The book concludes by suggesting that a laissez-faire approach to the lucrative Hong Kong markets will ensure that China harnesses the full political and economic benefits of sovereignty over the colony.

Description : This text examines the new political order that emerged in the West Bank and Gaza after the establishment of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) in 1994. It demonstrates that two political systems exist in the West Bank and Gaza Strip: one which is active, undemocratic and dominant; and one which is passive, democratic and overshadowed by the first. As'ad Ghanem demonstrates how Yassir Arafat has created an authoritarian regime and how he controls this through the concentration of power, intimidation and bribery, after having shoved aside the forces that had shaped the emerging political order that had come into being before the establishment of the PNA. This order, which incorporated political pluralism, struggle, protest on behalf of change, and voluntary organisations that were the first sign of the appearance of a Palestinian civil society, functions as a weak shadow of Arafat's centralized regime.

Description : The French Constitutional Council, a quasi-judicial body created at the dawn of the Fifth Republic, functioned in relative obscurity for almost two decades until its emergence in the 1980s as a pivotal actor in the French policymaking process. Alec Stone focuses on how this once docile institution, through its practice of constitutional review, has become a meaningfully autonomous actor in the French political system. After examining the formal prohibition against judicial review in France, Stone illustrates how politicians and the Council have collaborated over the course of the last decade, often unintentionally and in the service of contradictory agendas, to significantly enhance Council's power. While the Council came to function as a third house of Parliament, the legislative work of the government and Parliament was meaningfully juridicized. Through a discussion of broad theoretical issues, Stone then expands the scope of his analysis to the politics of constitutional review in Germany, Spain, and Austria.

Description : On December 20, 1999, Portugal was formally handed over Macau to China, ending 442 years of Portuguese control of the tiny peninsula and two small islands. Though comprised of just over nine square miles (with new reclamation), Macau was once one of the world's most important trading ports. In recent years, Macau has become a vital alternative to Hong Kong as a gateway to the booming economy of the People's Republic of China. Macau is first examined from a historical perspective. The island's responses to World War ll, the Korean War and China's civil war are fully covered, as is the influence of China's Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. The secret agreements between China and Portugal in the 1960s and 1970s are described, along with a full accounting of the arrangement for the return of Macau to China. The prospects for the island's future under Chinese control are then detailed.

Description : Shortly after the beginning of the 20th century, the federal government entered a new phase -- the rise of the administrative state. Among the forces propelling this development was the Progressive Movement, which sought greater government engagement with and regulation of various sectors of American society. An autonomous Department of Labor, with Cabinet status, was established in 1913, along with the Federal Reserve. The Federal Trade Commission was created the following year. With the entry of the United States into World War I, regulatory activities further expanded, and the number of administrative agencies and federal employees increased. With the post-war era, the expansion of the federal government momentarily slowed, but began again with the onset of the Great Depression and the launching of the New Deal. The colossus that was constructed to combat the national economic emergency was soon refashioned and augmented to enable the United States to victoriously end a world war. With the return to peace in 1945, the federal government stood as a giant complex organisation, with over 3.8 million employees. During the next 45 years, it would continue to expand in terms of both its principal units and resources. In the immediate past few years, however, some downsizing has occurred. This book reviews trends regarding various aspects of the operations of the federal government during the past 50 years, as evidenced by personnel, budget, and other data. It also identifies and discusses, in cameo form, various developments during the period that are considered significant for federal operations during the next century. Some of these are crafted innovations, such as mission performance planning and measurement; some are imposed restraints, such as the Supreme Court's Chadha decision rendering so-called congressional or legislative vetoes unconstitutional. Some developments are still evolving, such as the electronic government phenomenon, and await conclusive assessment.

Description : "The French National Convention election elected the National Convention The election was held in September and were the first to be held under universal suffrage. An absolute majority of the deputies elected belonged to the Marais party, a political faction of vague but largely moderate policies. The Montagnards or Jacobins received 200 seats and the republican, though more moderate Girondin faction 160 seats. The election preceded the fall of the Gironde as a political faction, mainly because of the political and social unrest following the war started by the Girondist-dominated government in the spring of 1792. Turnout was only 10%."--Wikipedia.
