  1. Bridging the Gap Between Social Science and Leadership Studies

    Kubicek, Brett
    Brett Kubicek (PhD, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) is a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Political Science whose inter-disciplinary research draws on a wide variety of sub-fields, including comparative politics, leadership studies, empirical political theory, political psychology and qualitative methods. His dissertation, Political Creativity, examined ways in which individuals achieve large-scale political change, with a special focus on how they approach long-term projects that go against prevailing conditions and conventional ideas. Kubicek’s work designs tools that analyze both the nature and interaction of social forces and individual traits. He uses projects for change as a basis for building these analytical tools, which are designed to be applicable to diverse historical,...

  2. Taxability, Protection, and the State

    Gehlbach, Scott
    The state,writes Douglass North, trades a group of services, which we shall call protection and justice, for revenue. This paper explores the possibility that an efficient trade may not be possible, while providing an explanation for variation in the degree to which such protection is provided. At issue is the fact that the revenues which in principle could justify the ex ante provision of protection are typically collected ex post. Protection having been provided, firms may therefore have an incentive to hide revenues from the state, while differing in their ability to do so. Thus, the state will typically favor economic activity which is more taxable,a proposition supported...

  7. Global Citizenship and International Law

    Lowe, Vaughan
    The paper considers whether concepts of citizenship can be translated from the national to the international plane, and argues that the moral positions of individuals, governments, and States are different. It considers the role of law in relation to citizenship, arguing that the law imposes some duties upon citizens, allows some freedom for moral choice and moral initiative, and provides a conceptual framework that supports some but not all patterns of moral responsibility. It then explains the extent to which international law imposes duties upon individuals, governments and States. Finally, it considers the extent to which the current structure of international law is capable of supporting a development...

  12. The Odd Couple: Leaders in Italian and Japanese History

    Samuels, Richard
    An excerpt from Richard J. Samuels, Machiavelli’s Children: Leaders and their Legacies in Italy and Japan, Cornell University Press 2003, p. 2: In this book, I conceive of leaders as political actors who have a greater range of assets than others in the community for “stretching” the constraints of geography and natural resources, institutional legacies and international location. This book uses dozens of episodes from Italian and Japanese history to show what difference individuals can make…. Here we can show how even under the same constraints, different leaders can choose—and choose differently. Some use history, or invent a usable history. Others create alliances where none ought to have...

  15. Could Humphrey Have Gone to China? Measuring the Electoral Costs and Benefits of Making Peace

    Schultz, Kenneth
    Theoretical arguments for why “it takes a Nixon to go to China” emphasize either the superior credibility that hawks have in advocating peace or the superior political benefits they enjoy in doing so. This paper looks for evidence of these effects in the canonical case: that of U.S. rapprochement with China in the early 1970s. I use counterfactual simulations on data from the 1968 National Election Study to explore the political effects of a proposal to open relations with China, focusing on whether and how those effects would depend on who made the proposal: Richard Nixon or Hubert Humphrey. I find evidence of both the credibility and electoral security effects...

  20. British Naval Warfare in the 'Long' 18th Century: A Warrior Elite?

    Rodger, N.A.M.
    The British navy in the age of Nelson cultivated an ethic of destruction that has rarely been seen in warfare at sea (when Nelson chided his ship's carpenter, after his great victory at Copenhagen, for failing to make the captured ships seaworthy, the carpenter boldly replied: “Your Lordship is so much better at smashing ships than I am at repairing them.”) What were the origins of “the Nelson touch”? Was it the influence of one man, of a social class, or of exposure to the constant carnage of warfare afloat?
