Описание: In the late nineteenth century, the United States underwent an extremely rapid industrial expansion that moved the nation into the front ranks of the world economy. At the same time, the nation maintained democratic institutions as the primary means of allocating political offices and power. The combination of robust democratic institutions and rapid industrialization is rare and this book explains how development and democracy coexisted in the United States during industrialization. Most literature focuses on either electoral politics or purely economic analyses of industrialization. This book synthesizes politics and economics by stressing the Republican party’s role as a developmental agent in national politics, the primacy of the three great developmental policies (the gold standard, the protective tariff, and the national market) in state and local politics, and the impact of uneven regional development on the construction of national political coalitions in Congress and presidential elections.
Описание: If all the people, municipalities, agencies, businesses, power plants, and other entities that think they have a right to the water in Texas actually tried to exercise those rights, there would not be enough water to satisfy all claims, no matter how legitimate. In Sharing the Common Pool: Water Rights in the Everyday Lives of Texans, water rights expert Charles Porter explains in the simplest possible terms who has rights to the water in Texas, who determines who has those rights, and who benefits or suffers because of it.
The origins of Texas water law, which contains elements of the state's Spanish, English, and Republic heritages, contributed to the development of a system that defines water by where it sits, flows, or falls and assigns its ownership accordingly. Over time, this seemingly logical, even workable, set of expectations has evolved into a tortuous collection of laws, permits, and governing authorities under the onslaught of population growth and competing interests--agriculture, industry, cities--all with insatiable thirsts.
In sections that cover ownership, use, regulation, real estate, and policy, Porter lays out in as straightforward a fashion as possible just how we manage (and mismanage) water in this state, what legal cases have guided the debate, and where the future might take us as old rivalries, new demands, and innovative technologies--such as hydraulic fracturing of oil shale formations ("fracking")--help redefine water policy.

Описание: This book is a comparative study of the American legal development in the mid-nineteenth century. Focusing on Illinois and Virginia, supported by observations
from six additional states, the book traces the crucial formative moment in the development of an American system of common law in northern and southern courts. The process of legal
development, and the form the basic analytical categories of American law came to have, are explained as the products of different responses to the challenge of new industrial
technologies, particularly railroads.
The nature of those responses was dictated by the ideologies that accompanied the social, political, and economic orders of the two
regions. American common law, ultimately, is found to express an emerging model of citizenship, appropriate to modern conditions. As a result, the process of legal development provides
an illuminating perspective on the character of American political thought in a formative period of the nation.

Описание: Due to an alleged breakdown of capitalism, the U.S. is in perilous shape. Given the long-term retrenchment of consumers, there is little likelihood of a return to strong economic growth. Meanwhile, the U.S. fiscal deficit is at a record 12% of GDP, and will likely remain high for decades. Newscasters and pundits alike are asking whether the U.S. could become a banana republic and everyday citizens are concerned that politicians are more interested in getting elected than offering genuine solutions. In Capitalism 2.0 economist Woody Brock attempts to bridge the Left/Right divide and provide a path out of our economic quagmire. It is not a question of free market capitalism versus a government controlled economy, Brock writes. Rather it is a question of enacting policies to generate economic growth to reduce our debt-to-GDP ratio and to reform our political system to prevent politicians from mortgaging our future by promising benefits that we can no longer afford. Fundamentally, Brock argues we need to re-think our moribund political philosophies and to understand that capitalism is consistent with a just society, and that political parties by serving the short-term interests of their constituent groups are the greatest danger to the U.S. economy and the U.S. as a global power.
