This report, from the European Union Committee (HLP 62-I, ISBN 9780104012420) is an impact assessment of the Treaty of Lisbon and seeks to inform the House of the most important aspects of the Treaty by comparing provisions with the status quo and assessing their impact on the institutions of the EU, Members States and on the UK. Divided into 12 chapters, with 7 appendices, the report covers the following areas, including: foundations of the European Union, where the Committee analyses the effects of the changes to the structure of EU treaties and the amendments made to the Union's values and objectives; the simplified treaty revision and how this can alter significantly the provisions on the face of all European Treaties; the impact of the Treaty on European institutions and what changes this will make to the European Council, including a full-time European Council President; the Lisbon Treaty gives the Charter of Fundamental Rights a legally binding status and whether the Charter's rights will create "new" rights in the UK and if the UK's existing labour and social legislation will be effected; the area of freedom, security and justice; how far does the Treaty change fundamental principles of foreign, defence and development policies; the impact of the Treaty on social affairs as well as finance and the internal markets; the impact on environment, agriculture and fisheries; also the new functions the Treaty gives national parliaments and the democratic challenge that poses; a summary of conclusions. The report does not seek to compare the Lisbon Treaty with the now abandoned Constitutional Treaty or the process by which the Lisbon Treaty was produced. Also the report does not address the question whether there should be a UK referendum on this Treaty. For the Committee, ratification of the Treaty is now a matter for Parliament.

Half a century after the collapse of the Nazi regime and the Third Reich, scholars from a range of fields continue to examine the causes of Nazi Germany. An increasing number of young Americans are attempting to understand the circumstances that led to the rise of the Nazi party and the subsequent Holocaust, as well as the implication such events may have for today as the world faces a resurgence of neo-Nazism, ethnic warfare, and genocide. In the months following World War II, extensive psychiatric and psychological testing was performed on over 200 Nazis in an effort to understand the key personalities of the Third Reich and of those individuals who "just followed orders." In addressing these issues, the current volume examines the strange history of over 200 Rorschach Inkblot protocols that were administered to Nazi war criminals and answers such questions as: * Why the long delay in publishing protocols? * What caused such jealousies among the principals? * How should the protocols be interpreted? * Were the Nazis monsters or ordinary human beings? This text delivers a definitive and comprehensive study of the psychological functioning of Nazi war criminals -- both the elite and the rank-and-file. In order to apply a fresh perspective to understanding the causes that created such antisocial behavior, these analyses lead to a discussion within the context of previous work done in social and clinical psychology. Subjects discussed include the authoritarian personality, altruism, obedience to authority, diffusion of responsibility, and moral indifference. The implications for current political events are also examined as Neo-Nazism, anti-Semitism, and ethnic hate are once again on the rise. While the book does contain some technical material relating to the psychological interpretations, it is intended to be a scholarly presentation written in a narrative style. No prior knowledge of psychological testing is necessary, but it should be of great benefit for those interested in the Rorschach Inkblot test, or with a special interest in psychological testing, personality assessment, and the history of psychology. It is also intended for readers with a broad interest in Nazi Germany.

In 2005, almost 700,000 immigrants acquired the citizenship of a member state of the European Union; over 600,000 became US citizens; nearly 100,000 became Australians and approximately 200,000 Canadians. 2005 was not an exceptional year. During the past decades, many advanced liberal democracies have become more ethnically diverse societies. This book breaks new ground in the analysis of the political representation of immigrants and visible minorities both theoretically and empirically. It examines the upward trend in migrant and minority representation and demonstrates that there remain crucial differences across liberal democracies in the timing of these developments; in channels of access for minority representatives, in the policy focus and outcomes of minority representation; in the nature of the connections between minority representatives and minority communities, and in the nature of their relationships with constituents at large. Part I analyses immigrants and visible minorities as voters, who must be the starting point of any analysis of political representation. Part II deals with the stage of candidate selection within political parties, a crucial and under-researched stage in the process of political representation. Part III deals with immigrants and members of visible minorities, once elected to parliament and includes analyses of the Canadian Parliament, the German Bundestag, MPs in the United Kingdom and Members of the United States Congress. The book will of interest to students and scholars of migration and ethnicity studies and political science, especially those with an interest in political representation, democratic institutions, voting behaviour, party organisation, legislative behaviour and comparative politics.

'Thatcherism', as attitude of mind and style of action, has dominated the agenda and tone of British politics during the 1980s. Supporters and critics alike have acknowledged the bold scope of the campaign launched by the Prime Minister 'to change the heart and soul' of the nation. Here nine contributors, of differing political persuasion, come together to offer a variety of approaches to, and conclusions about, 'the Thatcher Phenomenon'. Their essays review the concept of Thatcherism; its impact on the Conservative Party and on the forces of Opposition; its effect on Cabinet government and on society at large; its significance in terms of economic and foreign policy; and the validity of the claim that its record entitles it to enjoy some truly historic status.

Since Federation Australia has had 25 Prime Ministers. Some have towered over their party, Parliament and the national scene. Others have been pushed about by events or their own colleagues even by Parliament. The contest for the Prime Ministership has come to resemble the presidential-style elections of the United States. It is a personality battle between two contenders, not one over ideas, principles, or even parties. Brian Carroll tells of all 25 Prime Ministers ólong time survivors Bob Menzies, Billy Hughes, Joe Lyons, Malcolm Fraser, and Bob Hawke; of three timers Alfred Deakin and Andrew Fisher; of short-timers Earle Page, Frank Forde, and John McEwen. The book contains a chapter on possible future prime ministers - Latham, Costello and Abbott. Brian Carroll is a Melbourne-based freelance writer who has written several books on aspects of Australian history. He has a Master of Arts degree from the University of Melbourne, with honours in Australian history.
