independence, legal professional competence and objectivity were absent or
considerably modified during the many centuries of judicial institutional
development which preceded the emergence of courts in the variety of
contemporary legal systems of the world. Martin Shapiro has correctly observed
that analysts of the attributes of courts ...

Etika Politik Pejabat Negara

Buku ini menyandang gelar “Winner of the American Political Science Association’s Gladys M. Kammerer Award for the best political science publication in 1987 in the field of US. Nation policy.” Tidak mengherankan bila di Amerika Serikat, begitu terbit, buku ini langsung dijadikan salah satu buku teks pilihan dalam kuliah Etika Politik Pejabat Negara. Namun buku ini, untuk kita di Indonesia barangkali cukup berat untuk dibaca oleh kalangan umum. Disamping perbedaan kultur, mereka yang cukup asing dengan dunia filsafat moral dan filsafat politik, serta tidak tahan dalam mengikuti argument-argumen yang cukup ‘njelimet’, mungkin akan merasa buku ini tidak semenarik buku-buku lain tentang politik. Kepada para etikawan politik dan para ilmuwan politik yang meminati dimensi etis dari wilayah bidang kajian studi mereka, buku yang tidak mudah ini dipersembahkan

Volatility William Easterly, Roumeen Islam, and Joseph E. Stiglitz This article
explores the relationship between volatility in economic growth and various
institutional factors. Its main hypothesis is that in explaining volatility, the
traditional macroeconomic literature has overemphasized such factors as wage
and price rigidities and underemphasized factors relating to the financial system.
The financial system may act as a stabilizer that helps to cushion consumers and
producers from ...

Central Asia's Second Chance

A leading authority on Central Asia offers a sweeping review of the region's path from independence to the post-9/11 world. The first decade of Central Asian independence was disappointing for those who envisioned a straightforward transition from Soviet republics to independent states with market economies and democratic political systems. Leaders excused political failures by pointing to security risks, including the presence of terrorist training camps in Afghanistan. The situation changed dramatically after 9/11, when the camps were largely destroyed and the United States introduced a military presence. More importantly the international community engaged with these states to give them a "second chance" to address social and economic problems. But neither the aid-givers nor the recipients were willing to approach problems in new ways. Now, terrorists groups are once again making their presence felt and some states may be becoming global security risks. This book explores how the region squandered its second chance and what might happen next.

Unexpected. Chance. The. terrorist attacks on the United States of September 11,
2001, demonstrated what can happen when the international community turns its
back on a region—in this case, Afghanistan and its neighbors—and its problems.
Yet despite all the money subsequently devoted to the war on terror and to
preventing a repeat of the circumstances that allowed Al Qaeda to thrive, the
prospect of new failed states developing in Central Asia is greater today than it
was then.
